Isn't everything for you? [Tag: Professor McKindy]
Fri Jan 26, 2018 01:20

Leon took a few deep breaths then wiped his tears on his sleeve and fumbled for his wand in the darkness. “Listen, sorry it’s just my first day away from home and… I’m not used to facing these things alone,” he said still looking for his wand. The room was sporadic with light from wands, and it was hard to make out fine shapes. He shouldn’t have dropped his wand, his mom told him that it could cast a fireball if handled improperly, but the first year never had a wand before. It was also really expensive, in his opinion.

As he found the handle of what felt like his wand “Lumos” and a dim light filled the space. The younger boy turned to face Kit, “Okay, So… let’s get a few things straight here.” Leon was pissed at the girl for trying to tell him how things where when she didn’t even know that a tarantula was in fact a spider. He was also mad because he lost his cool and all this girl could do for him was tell him the same thing every adult said to him when he freaked out. He was crying, and the girl seemed to give him an attitude about it.

He found the nearest seat and sat. “Okay, so… you are the older student here, yes?” It was a rhetorical question. Leon had a flat tone to his voice as he stared at the girl before him. “You know way more about this stuff then I ever could. I am just shocked that you don’t understand that this is hard for me.” The boy pointed at his wand. “All of this is new to me. I am just a kid, and you tell me that spiders can not hurt me, BULL!”

This is when Leon started to raise his voice, “There are plenty of spiders who can hurt me, I’ve done my research on them, I know. It’s a fear that I have to get over, and here you are with a spider, by the way, yes Darby is apart of the spider family even though she… he … whatever is a Tarantula. I get it, this whole, I’m afraid of spiders is new to you. Some people are, I am not the only one, I don’t think Darby is going to hurt me. It is just a shock every time I see him… her? This darkness isn’t helping, I thought you would help more than you have, and at least be a little understanding that we all didn’t grow up with Aunts who work with dragons. I just cannot believe you would say something like that to someone who is crying!”

Tears started to flood down the boys face, this often happened when Leon was mad. It’s never a good sign, “You keep looking at me in disgust like I’m trash, you don’t know my life. You don’t know the bullying I’ve been through because of this.” The blonde pointed at his face. “I’m sorry that your pet scares me a little more than I would like to admit. I would do better under normal circumstances, with more light. However, for you to ignore the fact that I’ve tried to not let my fear get the best of me for a while, and comforted me when I was crying then maybe we could have been friends.” As his emotion heightened, Leon’s wand glowed brighter. He took a few more deep breaths then started looking around the room for a box. Leon’s light went out, “Sorry, spiders are my biggest fear, and you didn’t help… I shouldn’t have gone off like that… but… sometimes my emotions get the best of me. It’s cause I tend to bottle them up then they all come out at once.” This he said to the open air as he came to a wall, “Lumos” as the wand lit once more he could see the vague shadow of a box “Kit, there’s one over here if you want it.”

The boy felt so bad about bursting out at Kit. She didn’t do anything wrong, it was just the time and place it happened, added to the fact he didn't sleep well the night before and his biggest fear happened to be on this girls shoulder. He felt so bad that, if anyone was paying attention, he walked with a slight hunch to him. He would need to be talked to for sure about this outburst, hopefully everything would work itself out.


I don't know if I need to tag the prof here, but it is kinda and outburst in class so I have. Let me know if I did something wrong. Thanks!

            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
