For someone who's not here, I'm awfully distracting
Mon Mar 19, 2018 10:09

There was some kind of slug plant on all the desks. It was all black and squirmy and covered in these boils. Were they sick? They looked like they might be sick, and like their lesson was going to be nursing them back to health. She wondered how much of their appearance was due to whatever was wrong with them and how much they were just butt ugly horrible plants. Like, if they cured them of all the yellow blob things, would they still be disgusting black slug shapes, or was that part of the problem too?

’Does anyone know what these are?’

‘Freaking gross’ she suggested in her own head. The actual real name didn’t do anything to improve the plant’s image. And then it got even better. They were meant to be all covered in gross boils because their pus was useful, and they all had to collect it? And wear gloves cos it could burn? Wow. This thing was the gift that just kept on giving. And it was way too stuffy in here…

She really wanted to be anywhere else right now. Was it her, or was it getting warmer by the second? She could feel herself sweating, which was just so gross. She bet no one else was sweating. Proper Pureblood Ladies probably didn’t sweat, or get damp patches under their arms. It was a good job she never put her hand up for anything - was stupid as well as fat - because she bet if she did, everyone would see her gross sweat patches. But sometimes when you had to do really flicky wand movements, you had to life your arms up. Kinda. Would it be noticeable? Could she actually avoid lifting her arms away from her sides for the rest of the day, or would that make her look like some weird robot? And then even if they didn’t see, everyone would figure it out. How could it be getting so warm? Even if she didn’t get visible sweaty under arms, her hair was going to get all stuck down and gross. Was it just her embarrassment, or was it actually heating up by the second? She would have to sit in the back row again, with the troublemakers. She’d been avoiding it since the whole Jozua incident, but there was no way she could handle people looking at her.

Georgia gave a shriek. Or rather, the space where Georgia had previously been did. She could still feel her body - still feel the sweat trickling down her brow - but she could no longer see her hands on the desk in front of her, no longer see any part of herself.
