That's what friends are for

Leo said he would probably come to Agriclub, and Myffi beamed with delight. She was glad she’d sat next to Leo. He didn’t seem so grumpy now as he had right at the start of their conversation. Maybe her positivity was rubbing off on him. They should definitely spend more time together now, and maybe eventually he would stop being grumpy altogether and start being more cheerful.

As if he read her mind, Leo offered to actually teach her a bit about Quidditch. He would know things, too, because he had been on the Lyra team, and Myffi had watched every game last year, so she knew Leo played pretty well. “Really?

It didn’t sound like living there agreed with Leo any more than it agreed with Myffi. “You don’t like it there, either?”

        It wasn’t very often that Leo was the cause of someone’s smile, normally he was much more effective at causing people to scowl at him. In fact when Leo had first come to RMI he’d often got into... more
