This is the good stuff!

Sara pondered for a few minutes the suggestion the younger boy had offered. It sounded logical and doable, and yet she had the need to consult her textbook in case something catastrophic happened – or simply something exploded or whatever – when the ingredients set in front of them mixed. Sara didn’t want to cause a chain reaction that would inevitably end up with them seeing the medic or getting a bad grade in the assignment. The Lyra started perusing through the ingredients index and making quick notes before realizing that what Sam had mentioned was doable.

The Lyra was glad she was paired with Sam. Yes, he was a cool kid, especially since he knew about Muggle culture! Which was a first for Sara, and it was awesome to be able to share something like that with someone. It wasn’t much, yes, but Sara sometimes felt self-conscious about the fact that her education was a mix and match of two very different cultures. It was hard for her to get used to the No Electronics at RMI thing, especially since her mother relied so much on them for communication. She missed the simplicity of just grabbing a cell phone and texting her mother whenever she needed.

“Yes,” she affirmed with a smile. “I don’t have any, though. Do you?” she asked sort of knowing the answer. She didn’t think that Sam would suggest an ingredient that he didn’t have with him or had a way of getting. Though, Sara didn’t know much of the younger boy, and people could be surprising. It wasn’t like she was always prepared for classes and that had been part of the problem why her grades had been so bad last term. The twelve-year old didn’t think much about future needs. For her, it was better to think about the present and what was happening, but her tutor had taught her that, at least, for classes, she needed to think ahead. Whoops.

      • And now, begin! - Satveer, Wed Aug 30 11:38
        Satveer waited, poised for Sara’s response. "I don’t have any, though. Do you?” The words had but left Sara’s lips when Satveer delved his hand in his bag rummaging for the ingredient. As his hand... more

          Sara had been watching Sam rummaged around his stuff for the ingredient they needed to work on his potion. The mexican girl was glad he had some of it and he proudly placed it on the desk. The... more
