To see the boy smile back at her (potential friend!) made Dea's nerves slow down a bit, she nodded in response. "Dee-grit," she said slowly. "You can just call me 'Dea,' though. That's what my friends call me. I know it's a weird name--it's Icelandic. It was my great-great-great-grandmother's name." Her smile was wide, red hair gleaming. "It's nice to meet you, Jake."

Dea took her trowel and lifted out some of the potting soil, packing in the pinecone and acorn gently and burying them in the dirt. She couldn't help but notice how Jake was looking at her notes from time to time, and she glanced over to see he was most certainly not prepared for the class. She slid her notes over to him with a slight smile. "You can borrow mine if you want. Go ahead and copy it down." She went back to practicing her wand movements and pronouncing the spell, before she was interrupted by Jake.

She cleared her throat and pulled back her shoulders before finally casting the spell. Deagret smiled at him kindly and asked, "Does that help at all, or am I going to fast?"

The little leshy in her pot suddenly burst from the soil, and Dea laughed happily, proud of herself for getting the spell right. It seemed she wasn't hopeless, as she had feared.

        • That's okay! - Deagret, Mon Mar 4 11:31
          "Yeah, I think you did get the cooler names," Dea replied with a bright laugh. Her eyes went wide then, and she asked, "Wait you have a twin? Wow, that's so cool! Do you two get along? Who's the... more

            Jake smiled when Dea agreed that Jace and he had the cooler names. Jake laughed when she asked him a lot of questions about him and Jace. “Of course we get along. We are best friends.” This was true... more

              "I wish I had a twin," Deagret replied, voice and eyes wistful. "I mean, I love my older brother, but it'd be nice to have someone who shares everything with you, and is always going to be there.... more

                  Deagret really couldn't see the connection between identical twins somehow being better than fraternal twins, but she decided not to question Jake's somewhat...illogical thinking. Thankfully, his... more
