Ooh yes, let's!

Francine was a morning person. She liked to be up and about, and many mornings before class she would scamper down to Pearl Street so she could watch the sunrise. It was pretty, the streets were clear and peaceful, and she felt very calm. If she had time after, either it was a weekend and there wasn’t Quidditch or her class that day wasn’t for a while, she would then go back to her dorm and lay out her yoga mat for a good stretch.

She had to cut yoga short today, however, because she had a meeting to attend, and it was of the utmost importance, so she needed time to take a quick shower and put on clothes less, well, tight so that she could go out in public. Francine was feeling purple today, so she put on a long-sleeved purple dress and accentuated it with a light blue infinity scarf. She couldn’t decide between purple and blue converse, so the blonde decided to just wear one of each. After twirling once for her mirror and deciding she was satisfied in both the spin physics of her skirt and the appearance of the outfit overall, she was on her way.

Bouncing down to the administrative quarters, she stopped outside a specific door, reaching up to attempt to straighten out her hair a touch, although to no real result. Francine spun her fidget ring once and took a deep breath before knocking on the door of Professor Aaron McKindy.

Nervous wasn’t exactly the right word for it. Aaron McKindy was family, sort of, as he was a cousin of her mother’s, but Francine had never met him before she and Nick got to RMI. She’d been less-than-subtly trying to learn about him over the years, sometimes probing Mr. Tennant a bit during their counseling sessions, sometimes just watching Aaron during his class. But these types of meetings, other than her actual, legitimate interest in becoming an animagus, were a great opportunity to talk to him one-on-one.

She sat as indicated. “Oh, I’m wonderful, thanks,” Francine answered happily. “I just love mornings. So many possibilities!” Her smile was genuine; a lot of people asked questions like how are you without really meaning it, but Francine both meant the question and answered honestly. “Are you having a nice morning?” she asked to that effect.
