A map? Ben gave her a slightly confused glance. It was far enough into term that he thought everyone had figured out their way around by now. And she was going to Charms. "Are you new?" he asked, having had enough clues that he felt it was safe to ask. The crowd was starting to thin as people found their classrooms and he picked up the pace a little, leading the way since his companion apparently didn't know how to get there.

            Misty nodded, trying to keep up with Hippo as he explained the school crest. She briefly wondered which House she would be Sorted into, though it wasn't at the forefront of her mind at the moment.... more
