I’m really hot right now and so is everyone else
Wed Mar 14, 2018 14:37

Zev was feeling cold and she pulled her light jacket tighter around herself as she walked down the garden paths to Herbology. Ugh. She hated winter here. It was less than a hundred miles from where she grew up and acclimated to the kind of desert weather she considered normal, but some crazy wizards decided they wanted to reinvent the Irish climate in the middle of Arizona. It wasn’t even actually winter yet! It was still autumn! Dang wizards. She bet it was still practically summer in Phoenix.

She took her essay from Professor Xavier, knowing without looking at it that she did well, since he told her so. So she just tromped into the greenhouse, stuffed the essay into her bag, and scowled because this was a greenhouse so why wasn’t it any warmer than outside?

She rubbed her arms and grumbled at her neighbor, “I miss summer already. How’d it get so cold so fast?” It was a question with the potential to cause no small amount of confusion in the person so addressed because the outside temperature was actually still quite comfortable and the greenhouse was still noticeably warm.

And it was getting warmer by the moment. By the time Professor Xavier handed out the bubotubers and stopped talking it was getting close to hot inside the greenhouse, and as Zevalyn pulled on her dragonhide gloves, the temperature surged up to sweltering. “At least we get to wear gloves to keep our hands warm,” she remarked, completely oblivious to the heat everyone else was experiencing. She shivered. “I hope I’m not catching something. I suddenly feel a bit tired and achy, too.”
