Vivica was a little disheartened. What appeared to have come so naturally to her partner, didn’t appear to be so easy for Vivica to replicate. Gigi has managed to pronounce it correctly, and as she had put it, Vivica was indeed from her neck of the woods (or at least the same island. Vivica wasn’t very good with placing people from their accent). “Yah, my family are from London” she sighed a little. It may have been pronunciation issue over anything else. Vivica would be the first to admit that she often mumbled, but she was certain that wasn't it. Vivica stood and muttered to herself, ensuring she’d got it correct. “Expelliarmus… expelliarmus.”

Vivica thought that perhaps Gigi was right, Confidence maybe key in casting. Whilst she was excited to give it a try, magic was still very new to Vivica and the previous lingering thought of Drew may have distracted her more than she first thought. Over the years, Vivica had made peace between herself and thoughts that sometimes frequented her mind. At home, where she was surrounded by family and friends, she was used to it. She had even grown up attributing their voices to certain thoughts. However, since she had started RMI, the thoughts that were so easily associated people like Uncle T, Mum and Dad were gone. Replaced by new, seemingly random thoughts.

Repositioning herself, Vivica cleared her mind (as much as she could) and cleared her throat. Lifting her arm, she aligned the tip of her wand to the centre of Gigi’s chest. ‘when you exhale’. Vivica focused, “Expelliarmus!”. Light ejected itself from the tip of her wand towards Gigi and Vivica squeaked excitedly.
