Leon smiled in relief as the girl came to him, “yeah, sure!” The boys eyes widened a little in fear as he saw the tarantula on the girls shoulder. “T… that thing i...is your friend?”

Leon would never admit it but he had a very slight… okay maybe not so slight fear of spiders. He could deal… a few deep breaths and count backwards from 10 in his head. “O...Kay… okay. Sorry, minor panic attack… sorry.” Leon shifted his weight and moved to the other side of the girl where he couldn't totally see tarantula. “I am Leon, it's nice to meet you and… uh… Darby too.” He didn't realize that pets could be brought into class. Let alone that this girl would approach someone with it on her shoulder, like doesn't she know that people have a very healthy fear of spiders.

After another ten count the boy said, “I think I might be able to pass this with you!” Leon said that with a very polite smile and a practiced calm in is voice. He grabbed his wand tight and the lights went out.

A few voices said the spell, maybe his partner he didn't know he was too in his head, what was the spell. Even though people said it outloud he still proceeded with “Luminous!” nothing happened.

“Kit…” he whispered in ernest, “Kit what am I doing wrong?” He knew he didn't have to whisper but it felt weird to talk normal in darkness.

                    Leon took the seat next to his Head of House. The boy's eyes still puffy and red, though he has seemed to stop crying for now. He took a loud exacerbated breath, then decided to speak. “Okay, I guess ... more
