Leon was quite nervous stepping into the school for the first time. This was real magic, it still hadn’t clicked for him that he was a real wizard, and his mom was a real witch. Even though it was 3 years since his mom informed him, he was taught a very basic education by her. No magi...il his letter came and everything changed.
The boy had mixed feelings about returning to school, after all most kids just teased him when he was. Leon really didn’t want to go through that again, but his mother informed him that things were going to be different. That he couldn’t tell his siblings about the goings on at the school, and that he would enjoy learning how to use his powers. After all, she did back in Philly.
The last day before school was the most hectic, the young boy’s mom ended up cramming everything into 2 luggage bags, and a trash bag filled with extra clothes she didn’t have time to fold. She drove him, most of the way to the portkey departure location. The rest of the hike was by foot.
When they got closer she gave him one last hug, and told him to mind the landing. He took hold of one luggage bag, and off he went. Just one bag in tow, I guess they didn’t really think about that, his mom would have to send his other stuff over to the school another way.
This is when his nerves kicked in, that and a slight feeling of illness from hitting the ground so hard. The school was huge, and there where other students his age he followed suit and eventually arrived in the dining room.
When placed into Cestus, he took his place next to a older light skinned boy, and gave him a smile and a bow. Thinking that the boy looked preoccupied in thought, and probably didn’t notice him, he grabbed a burger from a passing creature, who looked rather odd to him, and started eating. When the nudge came to his side.
He looked up at the boy next to him and forced a smile again. “Um… sure,” he said putting down the burger. He wasn’t really keen on spicy food but he didn’t want the boy to start teasing him. He grabbed the empanada, took a deep breath and ate it. He tried to eat it fast, so as not to be turned off by the heat, then swore inwardly as he coughing from the heat. Leon started clasping his throat, and rocking in pain. Obviously it was a lot spicier than he had prepared himself for. “Milk,” he said with a raspy voice as he took the bun from his burger and started to eat it, “I need some milk, please!” This was defiantly going to get him teased.

    The weirdest thing that had happened over the summer was that Drew had gotten an apology letter from Connor Farnon. Specifically, it was an apology for using the words Connor had used. At least that... more

      • I hope it’s a good one - Drew, Tue Jan 16 23:52
        Drew recognized the other Cetus as one of the first-years who had just been sorted. The second-year was going to introduce himself, because that was what you did when you met a new person, but the... more
        • Moving On - Leon Finnin, Wed Jan 17 12:47
          Leon gratefully drinks the milk, his eyes watering with the last of the spice. He looks back at the older boy and smiles. Then he looks down at his burger, the Irish boy’s face turns a shade of red... more
          • To bigger and better things? - Drew, Thu Jan 18 16:35
            Instead of answering—you know, like a normal person would—the other student trailed off and ate the whole rest of his burger. The top bun was mostly gone because he’d sacrificed it to the spicy... more
            • Leon smiled, “Drew… got it!” It seemed like he got away with the change of subject. Drew didn’t seem to press questioning which was good. He didn’t want to have to lie to the friendly older boy. “So... more
              • Would something big and safe work? - Drew, Fri Jan 19 18:31
                “Yeah, of course they are. House elves like doing work,” Drew said. Muggleborns didn’t really get how house elves worked, which was fair. Most house elves wouldn’t take money or anything even if you... more
                • Like a prison or a kennel? - Leon, Mon Jan 22 22:03
                  Leon's mind raced with so many questions. Though one thing Drew said stuck in the first years mind, “your step dad is our head of house?” Though the boy didn't know much about magic schools he did... more
                  • I was thinking like a bouncy castle - Drew, Tue Jan 23 00:36
                    “It’s not that weird,” Drew said, shrugging. His dad was the Head of Lyra, plus the counselor and the director. And his aunt (sort-of aunt—out of all his aunts, Cindra was the least close to being... more
                    • Bouncy castles are dangerous - Leon, Fri Jan 26 00:33
                      “Oh, How…” Leon started to ask does that work but decided better of it. Instead the boy thought he would just nod and smile in response to him almost making a big mistake. Sure he was told that... more
                      • They’re like fun padded rooms! - Drew, Fri Jan 26 12:09
                        Leon started to ask a question and Drew mentally braced himself for whatever inappropriate question he was about to be asked by the first year. Honestly why couldn’t people just mind their own... more

                          Leon turned slightly to Drew, “It’s just that… I don’t know… I think I’m in too deep or something. Like, you know how things work and have a normal magical family. Meanwhile, I just have an... more
                          • But fun! - Drew, Tue Feb 6 23:26
                            Deep in thought, Drew took a cupcake from the house elf’s tray. Leon had said a lot of really intense stuff. Drew was not really up to dealing with that for a few reasons: 1) because it was the... more
                            • I wouldn't call a padded room fun. - Leon, Fri Mar 9 02:48
                              Leon thought a moment, then he sighed, "yeah, I guess you are right about that." The first year moved into a more comfortable position and just stared at the older boy. He seemed to know everything,... more
