Still buzzing from the excitement of casting her first ever spell, Vivica had to agree. “Vivica and Gigi, fine young witches in training”. Vivica had, so far, really enjoyed partnering up with Gigi and could see a wonderful friendship in the making. They didn’t need any third years - Gigi appeared knowledgeable enough for the both of them and Vivica had found that all it needed was a damned good effort.

Vivica walked a few steps away from Gigi and prepared her stance so that Gigi could have another go. “My mum’s a” Vivica paused, ensuring she remembered it correctly. “Specialist Pediatric Surgical Consultant.” She said proudly. Whilst it meant alot in her old the muggle world, Vivica was unsure just how medicine and health care within the wizarding world actually worked. It didn’t seem to make sense to use pills or surgeons when you could just use a spell. To offer a little more of an insight, and trying not to teach the fellow brit how to suck eggs, she offered a little explanation. “She used to be a doctor for the NHS in england. When she became a surgeon she got really good! And last year she got offered a better job over here, so we ended up moving.” Vivica understood it was a financial decision that would set their family up for life but It was also a decision made prior to the ‘official notification’ of Vivica’s abilities. “My parents chose RMI because it was closest, and Dad can keep an eye on me.” again she paused, considering just how much to say. Gigi seem’s nice, just tell her “Just incase I have an episode.” Vivica didn’t care who knew about her disability. She was used to the funny looks she’d received when she had an episode. Over the years, she’d learned to built up enough barriers around her to deflect them. However, what she had never truly felt comfortable with was telling people about it before it happened. Possibly the wrong way round to do it, but that’s just how it was.

“How about you?” she retorted, steering the conversation away from, but not avoiding, the topic of her episodes.

  • Sounds like a blast - Gigi, Sun Jul 29 11:42
    Gigi nodded. Vivica said she was from London. Not the same as rural Herefordshire but good old Blighty nonetheless. If pronunciation wasn’t an issue for Gigi, her fellow Brit shouldn’t have trouble... more

        For a beat, Gigi wondered what Vivica was going to call her mother, but it turned out she was just trying to recall her job title (Not that Georgina would have been too surprised to hear someone slur ... more

          • I like free stuff - Gigi, Tue Aug 7 14:49
            Vivica started to explain, and basically the gist Gigi was getting was that her partner could hear voices. Now, Georgina didn’t want to jump to conclusions, but in the magical or Muggle worlds,... more
