Isabeau Laurent
Oh, dear.

This was it, finally a chance to prove she could do something other than make trouble. She'd practiced the swish and flick movement, went over the incantation in her mind, and all in all felt confident..... sort of. It was hard to feel confident in a class full of other students she was sure knew more than she.

Her feather was waiting.

Shakily, Isabeau pointed her wand at her feather quill and cleared her throat. She hoped she sounded more sure of herself than she felt. "Wingardium Leviosa!"

Nothing. Not even a twitch! She deflated, glancing around to be sure no one had seen her failure. Not that she was the only one to not have it, and Professor Wright had assured them it was fine if it took them a few tries, she couldn't help but be disappointed.

She closed her eyes and took a few deep breaths to clear her mind. Her brother, Bastien, always said it worked well for him- and she did feel calmer. She opened her eyes and looked at the quill.

Okay, she thought to herself. You can do this, and if you can't, that's okay. You're not going to overreact and be upset, you're just going to try again. You have this.

"Wingardium Leviosa!"

Her eyes widened and she shrieked quietly when the feather leaped into the air, before falling back to her desk. Oh, dear.
