Jesse Keller
Open to new experiences
Wed Feb 21, 2018 16:33

The boy who had originally introduced himself to Jesse as Sam apparently also went by the name Satveer. Another interesting fact about Sam was that he was in possession of (or certainly had access to) a magic carpet. Jesse had never even seen a magic carpet before, let alone rode on one, so he was keen to try (sometimes it was inevitable that he would not enjoy new experiences, but Jesse was often keen to try). He didnít know what was the best attire for riding a carpet - it didnít seem to necessitate the unrestrictive clothes preferential for broomstick riding - but he didnít have much to choice in his limited wardrobe anyway. He dressed in a looser fitting pair of faded blue jeans that morning, and a dark green t-shirt with small, paler green dinosaur silhouette prints on it. The placement of the motifs was supposed to look random, Jesse was fairly sure, but heíd soon identified a pattern that featured the gallimimus and the triceratops either side of what was probably supposed to be a T-rex but was clearly an allosaurus at predictable intervals. He even wore green socks to maintain some degree of co-ordination.

Jesse tried to listen to the instructions, which was made easier by Sam demonstrating as he spoke - directions being presented in two media simultaneously always proved to be more coherent to the Draco - but there were lots of people here to distract his attention in various other ways, by whispering to each other or jostling amongst the crowd. He caught some bits about moving your first and arm around, and tilting, and that they could go in partners. Jesse immediately decided that being partners with Sam was clearly the best way to go, because he had flown a carpet before - and then again, just now, so they could all see that he could actually do it - so Jesse would not have to remember the instructions, and also he liked Sam, who was friendly and had been very supportive in their spellwork partnership.

Unfortunately, someone else apparently reached that conclusion, too, because they were quicker than Jesse to volunteer. The pale-skinned boy tried not to feel too disheartened; there was a high likelihood that someone else in this group had been capable of paying more attention to the instructions, and perhaps between them they could avoid crashing into the stands. Jesse was sure he would regret passing up this opportunity, so having a go and crashing was better than not having a go at all. So with determination he picked out someone in the crowd he recognised from beginner classes as said, ďIíve never flown a carpet before but I expect thatís true of most of us.Ē
