The young boy stifled a squeak when the girl illuminated the spider on her shoulder. “Alright, why don't you start looking for those boxes. I don't know why I thought I had this in the bag.”

The boy took a deep breath, then moved a bit away from Kit. The older girl seemed to know what she was doing, Leon was lucky to have her. “Lumos” the first year said quietly. A small dim ball of light set at the top of his wand. He shrieked in delight then went to show his new friend his light.

When he brought the. The light over towards kit, he was able to pass the light over Darby. When the silhouette of the tarantula passed the far wall, Leon shreaked, dropped his wand, and hid behind a chair. Spiders were scary, he clutched his legs and buried his face in them. “Sorry,” the boys voice came muffled in the partial darkness. “I have a fear of spiders, I should have told you earlier, I thought i could deal, but I can't. It's not like I hate them, I…”

Leon's voice trailed off into slight sobs, as he sat on the ground. Here we was a boy who couldn't handle his own fear. He could hear the mockings of his past come back to him.

                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
