Sara de Alba
Something to focus on
Wed Apr 18, 2018 12:09

The start of the half of term had gone without any issues whatsoever. Her grades were still good and Sara was able to follow a less strict schedule. This had given the third-year the opportunity to focus on the subjects that were actually important to her: Care of Magical Creatures and Herbology. The Lyra smiled at the spread of sheets in front of her and carefully patted a particular one: the drawing of a manticore complete with pretty colors and maybe some glitter around. The Lyra had decided to write a book full of her favorite creatures complete with drawings.

Sara stretched for a few seconds before focusing again on the diversity of sheets she had in front of her. During the holidays she had discovered that she was good at drawing. So, her father had provided her with all the materials she needed. The thirteen-year old had been happy to research techniques to apply and had spent her christmas vacations cupped in her room drawing and learning from tutorials she had gotten out of the internet. Sara loved being the daughter of a wizard and a Muggle. She had the best of both worlds and the internet was definitely something she loved having around. Sara felt bad for the wizardkind that didn't enjoy the delights that the internet brought. It was a shame, really.

The third-year grabbed the information listed for unicorns and paired it with the drawing she had just finished. Sara blew at the drawing attempting to get rid of the extra glitter lying around before smiling and using her wand to glue both pages together by their edge. Her father had told her that he would have everything bound together when she went back for the summer. So, now Sara was just focused on working on everything. So far, she had unicorns, manticores and had started on a section on dragons. She knew she had a lot of work to cover, but she didn't mind. This was fun and helped her remember small facts about the creatures they were studying.

Sara squealed in excitement as she saw the final product for unicorns. It was awesome! Well, she was biased, but she was sure everyone would be able to find it useful. She had worked hard on making everything simple and understandable. She had been so excited that she had missed when someone entered the Outdoor classroom, “Oh hi,” she greeted them with a smile. “Don't mind me, I am just working on a personal project,” she said showing the person the drawing of the manticore since it was closer for her to reach.

          Magizoobotany was just another one of those boring classes for the fifth year. That wasn’t going to stop him from taking it of course – the botany part was a bit important in his opinion and even the ... more

              The girl seemed rather appreciative of Bryn’s praise. He flushed a little, dusky red overtaking the normal pale of his face. He was glad that she was taking it well and even that she’d been... more
