Masha Adin
Is she talking to me?
Thu Jan 11, 2018 15:40

Masha blinked. Was that girl talking to her? Raising her head to look at the girl properly she felt sort of thorn in two. She wanted to squeal with joy and at the same time to run away and hide. She swiftly glanced at the girl's pebble. That made her heart beating a bit slower. Raising her eyes to the girl’s again Masha frowned. Realising what she is doing she tried to smile and stop frowning. She was afraid that if she continues Jane might think she is frowning at her. But her smiling attempt wasn’t any better than her attempt to stop frowning. Somehow she failed at both. She was still frowning and now her mouth did the mad exercises instead of smiling. Her face felt odd. Her heart resumed mad drumming, her hands started to shake lightly.

Finally, after few attempts, she managed just to smile without frowning. Her face felt hot, so she was probably blushing. Masha was sure that by now Jane must think of her as some sort of lunatic. She nodded, trying to keep Jane’s attention.

“Gla...glad to meet you. I’m Masha.” she took a deep breath “Yes, this is not working at all. I don’t know what am I doing wrong. I learned lessons from the books. I did all that I supposed to do. Concentrated really hard. And nothing.” she looked at her pebble “Not even a single hole. When dad is doing stuff like this it looks so easy. Now I’m not so sure I’ll be good at charms too. But I can’t wait for potions.” she stopped talking, afraid that she is talking too much “Ummm, sorry. Do you know what we...ummm...I’m doing wrong?”

OOC - Thank you! I'll read the link at once.

      • Yup, so talk back! - Jane Doe, Fri Jan 12 07:29
        Jane was a bit surprised by the girl’s reaction, as she seemed to be frowning at her. Or at something, anyway. Maybe she wasn’t frowning at her, but at her pebble. Jane definitely felt like frowning... more
        • Not quite a button - Masha Adin, Fri Jan 12 08:29
          Masha breathed out slowly, she wasn’t aware that she held her breath. 'Good, so Jane at least don’t think I’m insane.' She smiled at the Jane more openly and, thankfully, without frowning this time.... more
          • Still excellent progress - Jane, Fri Jan 12 13:13
            “I totally want to know!” Jane said enthusiastically. She had been a little bit confused at first when Masha had started to talk about living in tents and shacks - she wondered whether they were... more

              Masha looked at Jane blinking, everything Jane said during her mad dash of words coming back to her slowly. The stupid grin still lingering, even if it wasn’t quite the button she managed to make.... more
              • “Yeah… you’re probably right,” Jane nodded, when Masha said they should save the chit-chat for when they weren’t in class. It was a sensible plan, but it was so hard when she was bursting with... more

                  Dorian took a seat in Transfiguration, listening carefully to Professor Skies. Even though he was a second year, and it was already somewhat familiar, he was sure he occasionally missed details due... more
