Dade seemed like a much more normal name than Remington. The first year didn’t mind her name too much. Sometimes she felt it was perfect for her; sometimes, it felt like it was too much. She rarely got to know people long enough for them to give her a nickname. Her mom would call her Remy, and her dad called her R.E.M. when he was feeling silly. She couldn’t think of the last time a peer called her something besides Remington, which, honestly, sounded more like a name for a very fluffy poodle than for an eleven year old girl.

When it was down, her hair was very poofy like a poodle, so maybe the name did fit.

Remington smiled at Dade’s honest reasoning. “It’d be harder, for sure,” she agreed, “But they might develop a whole new, more annoying language of just grunting and whining. I dunno if that’s what you’re going for.”

“Look, there’s one called the jelly-legs jinx,” Dade said. “That might work.”

She followed the name of the jinx in the table of contents with her right index finger, and she slid it to the right to find the page number. Once located, she flipped the pages until they found the spell. She squinted her brown eyes for a moment before reading.

“The jelly-legs jinx…blah blah blah, causes victim’s legs to wobble, doesn’t stop until the counter-jinx is performed,” Remington almost laughed, “That’s one of the silliest ways to cast a spell.” Seriously, what kind of incantation was locomotor wibbly? Remington tilted her head to the side in thought.

“It looks like it just makes it hard to stand. It’s not quite jelly teeth,” she shrugged, “What do you think? I’ll practice it with you if you want.”

      • As Remington read, Dade peered over her shoulder, following along. He snorted when they came to the incantation. Locomotor wibbly ? What? The eleven year old had never seen something that stupid in... more
        • I have nothing against the French. - Remington, Sun Jan 29 10:27
          Remington held back another snicker, still stuck on the silly incantation. From what she could tell, Dade didn’t want to hurt him roommates. He wanted to intimidate them. It was like how cats would... more
