Jane Doe
Mon Jan 1, 2018 16:43

Jane Doe stepped off the wagon, tucking her shoulder-length brown hair behind her ears. So, this was it. Sonora. Her brown eyes scanned her surroundings, taking it all in. Having grown up with a Muggle father and magical mother, she had known for her whole life about magic, and that one day she would be attending school here. Her dad had known it too, as her mother had explained it all to him when they got married, but she still thought he found it hard to understand or accept sometimes, particularly with the fact that she had to go away to attend school. She’d overheard him and her mother arguing about it. It had to be really hard on him… He could only ever participate in the wizarding world from the sidelines, as an observer, but the older Jane grew, the harder it was for him to keep up with his Muggle friends - to explain the strange things that sometimes happened around her, or why she was off to boarding school, or where and what exactly that school was…

Deciding not to dwell on missing her dad, or her parents’ arguments, she tried instead to focus on her new school, and perhaps making some friends. Spotting someone else, she made her way over.

“Hi,” she smiled. “I’m Jane. It’s exciting to finally be here, isn’t it?” she asked. In spite of her worries about her parents, she couldn’t deny that fact. She had spent her whole life hearing about magic and seeing her mother do it, and now she had her own wand and would get to try it all for herself.

                You haven’t used your wand? Jane was pretty taken aback by the surprise in Chrys’ voice. No, of course she hadn’t, because that was illegal at their age. She wasn’t exactly surprised that he had -... more
