Once Emmett had agreed to let her heal the scratch on his chin, Rose reached down and tilted his head up so that she could get easy access to the cut. It wasn’t that bad, but the fifth year didn’t see why anyone should run around bleeding when there was a perfectly good way to stop that from happening. Pulling out her wand, Rose tapped Emmett once on the chin.

Renovo,” she said, and the injury immediately closed up. There was still some blood on his chin, which Rose figured he could deal with himself. She wasn’t about to lick her finger and rub it on him or anything. That was gross, and that might give him ideas about her. Emmett didn’t need to get any more ideas in his tiny little brain. Rose would admit to herself that if Emmett was only a year older she might be interested, despite him being Marissa’s cast-off (Marissa wouldn’t mind, she’d made out with at least half the upper years at this point, Rose was pretty sure).

No problem. Is there a reason,” she asked, this time intending to make him feel like an idiot. “That you’re just...carrying yours? You do have a wand, you know.”
