Was it a good movie?

Beatriz turned and looked at the boy she had ended up speaking to. A boy she remembered from last night who had been sorted into Cetus. There were plenty of Lyra first years she wondered how in the world she didn’t end up paired with one of them. Ceti are smart this is okay. Now to find an older student. Beatriz thought to herself and then the boy she had spoken to responded.

He had never used magic before, meaning he was a muggle born. “Well, I won’t tempt fate by asking you to try to cast it.” She answered and smiled back at him. He introduced himself as Alistair, and she was about to introduce herself when another male voice said something to them.

Beatriz’ eyes flickered over to the other boy, and she smiled. “That sounds good, we definitely needed an older student.” He probably wasn’t much older than them but it was in the rules that Professor McKindy had laid out for them and the first day of school didn’t seem like the best time to start breaking the rules.

She turned back to Alistair and shook his hand. “Beatriz Bonilla-Estevez, Lyra first year.” She said and then turned to the other boy. She was pretty sure he had heard Alistair introduce him and now he had heard Beatriz do the same. “You are?” She asked hoping it came off nice and not standoffish. Papa said she had an attitude that was standoffish and to make friends one needed to be fun.

        • Well at least it wasn't a book - Connor, Sat Jan 14 15:14
          Thankfully, Connor had arrived at the two students before they’d actually made their introductions, which was very convenient for him as he didn’t have to ask them to repeat themselves. He, of... more
          • I like books! - Beatriz, Sat Jan 14 23:26
            Beatriz nodded when Alistair said nice to meet you, and that he looked forward to working with her. That seemed like an odd thing to say since he didn’t know if she would be a good worker or even... more

                When Beatriz suggested using tires, Connor looked over to where she was looking and she was right - there were several tires there. The Cetus frowned. He wasn’t sure if that was a good idea. Since... more
