Initially, Juniper had decided to take Herbology because barely anyone else did. The only people in her year that took it were her, Finn and Zevalyn. And, though she didn't mean it in a nasty way, she wished Zevalyn wasn't in the class. Furthermore, she would be happy if none of the sixth years joined the class. If it was just her and Finn, that would be utterly perfect. Even with Professor Xavier there. Juniper admittedly was fond of the Herbology professor and even though COMC was her favorite class, she liked him better than Professor Taransay. Not that she disliked the COMC professor, she just liked Professor Xavier better.

Also, she sincerely hoped Gwen wasn't taking the class. Juniper honestly hated her with a passion that surprised the seventh year. It was with the intensity that she loved Finn and Butterscotch. She didn't even need to know anything about the sixth year as a person, she was going after Finn and that was enough. Juniper had been utterly devastated when Gwen had beaten her to congratulating her friend on Head Boy. She had wanted to do that!

Of course, she was super proud of Finn for getting the position and had congratulated him later. The problem was that she'd had to see him with Gwen during the feast and that was so not conducive to her appetite. Juniper had ended up getting up, going to her room and crying her eyes out for the rest of the night.

She really didn't know what she would do if she didn't get to be with Finn. Well, okay, actually she did, she'd end up married to someone else. Her family would make her. Father might be compassionate about it for a bit but eventually Uncle Clifford would push for her to be married-and Mother would be pushing it all the way from the beginning.

But she didn't want that.

Juniper tried to push these thoughts aside as Professor Xavier began the lesson. Herbology wasn't as important to her to learn as, say, Transfiguration as she wanted to be an animagus. Still, she wanted to be respectful and listened to what her professor had to say.

Okay, Flicker Ferns. The Teppenpaw wandered off to look and for a moment, she thought she saw one. She wasn't sure though so she stepped closer and peered down at it.

She was debating whether or not it was there when someone came up behind her. Juniper jumped when they spoke. Her face flushed, embarrassed. What was wrong with her? This was why she should never be around people. "I-I'm sorry, you startled me." She said, wanting to crawl into a hole. Maybe she was going to be a turtle animagus-and she'd so been hoping for a horse.

OOC-I'm going off the class sign up spreadsheet for whose in Herbology. If you're a seventh year that's taking it other than Finn and Zevalyn, ignore that and pretend Juniper mentioned you too. Also, apologies to Zevalyn. Juniper just wants to be alone with Finn.
