    Come on in to Charms!

    Post  Wednesday Douglas on Mon Jun 13, 2011 10:11 am

    Hey, guys! Morning!

    Come on in here to start class. Once everyone gets in here we can get down to having some fun, right?



    Remember, this class is running in RP time at the same time as that nasty Dark Arts class. Gives me the shivers thinking about it...




    Come on in!!!

    Early in the morning again . . . and the class Kerry thought he might have the most problems with.

    Charms.

    How can you have problems here, Malibey? he thought as he looked at the doors set up in the middle of the room. And yet he did. There was something about the simplicity of charms that seems to have his mind whirling about in circle. It wasn't that he didn't think he could do it--but something about it was confusing him.

    Oh, well.

    He glided Annie to their seats and sat. If nothing else, he thought, I hear the instructor is cute.

    Annie roused that morning with a huge knot in the pit of her stomach and a raging headache. The tension from the night before played heavily in her dreams and once again, her tears dampened the pillow beneath her head.

    Breakfast was painful…what she wished for the most was the weekend. She needed time to think. Thinking wouldn’t help her in Charms—or Dark Arts.

    She entered the large classroom and plopped down in a desk next to Kerry.

    Keith hoped that Charms would be similar to his learning experiences with Steve. He walked into the classroom in high spirits, greeting everyone who had already arrived. "Good morning!" he said.

    Lina walked into the classroom still feeling tired. I wish I had slept right away instead of reading until 3 in the morning. Yawning she took a quick look about the classroom. Looking around the classroom, Lina noticed that Kerry and Annie were sitting in the front. She groaned as that's where she wanted to sit, but she didn't want to deal with Annie's crazy emotional problem, I still don't know why she was so mad yesterday, crazy shojo.

    Ignoring what she felt towards her, Lina walked to the desk next to Kerry. Taking out her supplies, Lina looked around the room only to notice that she didn't see the Professor. I wonder if she's here yet.

    Annie greeted Keith as he walked in and then saw Lina right behind him. She took a seat next to Kerry and settled in. Annie took a deep breath and twisted in her seat, leaning her torso over Kerry’s desk. Apologizing was not easy for her, so she was unsure how this was going to come across.

    “Uhm, Lina,” she said. “Mind if we talk for a minute before class starts?”

    “Uhm, Lina,” Annie said. “Mind if we talk for a minute before class starts?”

    Lina saw Annie leaning over Kerry as she looked over to the side of her. I wonder what she wants? "I don't mind," she said aloud, her expression seemingly calm. She adjusted her seat to sit square with Annie. "What is it that you wanted to ask?"

    Suddenly Kerry found himself with Annie on one side of him--leaning across his body--chatting with Lina, and Lina, turning her desk, to face her as she was leaning across him . . ..

    Now I know how Scott felt when Jean walked in on him and Emma in his head, he thought, realizing if it all went to hell there was no where for him to go.

    He felt his wand in his jacket and wondered if that "turn a bean into a beetle" spell would work with this situation . . ..

    Keith crossed through the center of the room, glancing at the doors and wondering if they were going to learn how to magically unlock them. As the two girls started talking around Kerry, who was seated between the pair, Keith slipped inconspicuously into the seat next to Lina and casually placed his book and wand on his desk. He looked over at Kerry and raised his eyebrows at him.

    Kerry saw the look Keith was giving him and gave back one that said, "Dude? What can I do?"

    Annie's talking about marriage, he thought, but I'm not sure I'm going to make it out of the next 10 minutes.

    Annie could see this wasn’t going to be simple. “No…I don’t want to ask,” she said quietly. “I just wanted to apologize…for yesterday…in Herbology.” When she finished up, she noticed Keith ghost into the seat next to Lina and peer over at Kerry. What’s that about, she thought, turning her head to look at Kerry herself.

    Keith shrugged back at Kerry, trying not too look to obvious about it. He turned away and idly began flipping though his book, attempting to eavesdrop on the girls.

    Just then, the classroom door flew open.

    Raven felt excited to go to class, which was slightly unusual. Just like potions class, she actually sat down and read her charm's book. She made sure to wake up early enough to not be late to class, as well as not getting docked points by not wearing her jacket to class.

    Raven basically ran to class, even though she wasn't late, but she was used to it. Bursting through the door, which is a habit that she was starting to get used to, she happily shouted, "Good Mornin' Everyone!"

    She looked around the room and saw an open seat next to Annie, didn't get a chance to talk to her before class started, I might get a chance now.

    Not long after his silent exchange of words with Keith, Kerry felt eyes hot on his perfect face. He looked slightly to his right and noticed Annie looking at him with a note of . . . could that be concern? Or puzzlement?

    "Hello, Sweetie," he said, going all River for a moment. "Is something wrong?"

    “No,” she smiled back at him. She knew something weird had passed between him and Keith. Was Keith, jealous? That didn’t seem to make any sense at all because he wasn’t throwing out any signals that he was interested in girls—that way. Though, neither did Kerry until I nudged him a bit. She turned back to look at him. The way he sat, flipping through the pages of his book but not really looking at anything gave him away.

    Annie leaned a little closer to Kerry. “So, anyway,” she said shifting her focus back to Lina,” I just wanted to say that I am sorry for what I said yesterday. I was very upset after our potions class and I guess I took it out on you. That wasn’t fair.”

    Lina looked a bit puzzled, apologize? She had a slight smile on her face when Annie came to apologize to her, "Oh, um, it's ok. Kerry told me that you can get, um, what's the word I'm looking for?" Lina took time to think it over, but couldn't think of what he said exactly, "excited? Well, anyway, it's ok, but I would like to know how plants made you like that, if you don't mind me asking." She had an ernest expression on her face, as she looked Annie in the eye.

    Annie blinked as Lina rambled on. Kerry told her I get…excited? Annie turned to face Kerry and smiled. She was close enough to feel the heat radiating off his chest. “Yes,” she breathed. “Plants can be quite overwhelming.”

    She trampled the desire to cross the last few inches between them and kiss his lips. Instead, she retreated to her own desk.

    Kerry wasn't uncomfortable with Annie so close; on the contrary, he wanted to really, really touch her . . . it was strange, but the more Annie did stuff like that, the more he seemed to react.

    Ever since yesterday, he thought. Looking at Nurse Coraline and realizing that Annie will look like that one day. And then her like she could read my mind . . ..

    Kerry sighed softly. This is only the first week, he thought. The next 7 years are gonna be whacked.

    Ellen hurried in. Her hair was different then she normally wore it. She had it up in a messy bun, with curls hanging out. A pencil- wait, no. HER WAND stuck in the top of the bun, as if to be a chopstick. She had big navy glasses on, too.

    I should have NEVER let Margie do my hair. What am I nuts?!?! Well, yes. Apparently I am.

    She grimaced when she saw Annie and Kerry sitting together.

    Kids like that really get on my nerves. What are they 11? Blech. I think I'm gonna puke.

    She plopped right next to Lina. "How's it going?" she asked, smiling bigger then ever.

    Raven sat next to Annie as she talked to Lina and while Keith and Kerry were doing...that thing that boys do during awkard moments. She glared at Keith for a little bit, I wanted to sit there. She shook it off as she turned her attention else where.

    Raven didn't get a chance to talk to Annie before, so she figured that she had a good chance now. Tapping the girl's shoulder she said, "yeah, sorry I didn't get a chance to talk to you in Potions or Herbology, I'm Raven, Raven Whitefeather."

    Annie felt a tap and turned toward the blond girl, who introduced herself as Raven. Just as Annie was about to reply, the new girl spoke up and introduced herself as Ellen. Annie turned toward her, waiting patiently for her to finish interrupting and then simply answered, “I don’t have one yet.”

    She turned her back on the new girl and faced Raven once more. “I’m Annie, by the way. It’s nice to finally get to meet you.”

    Raven was annoyed that the blond girl rudely interrupted her as she was talking to Annie. didn't her ma ever teach her that it's rude to interrupt people when thy're talkin?

    Setting her anger asside, she shook it off and happily replied, "I'm glad that we finally meet. I was only able to catch your name before class started."

    Annie grinned. “It’s been a very stressful beginning of term for me. It’s not an excuse, but I am not used to being around so many kids my own age.”

    She eyed the doors lined up in the center of the room. “Have you ever worked any charms by accident? I admit I’m probably not as prepared for this class as I should be. My mother prefers to do all the housework and gardening at home wandless.”

    Wandless magic. Now that's something that I can talk about. Wandless light, floating teddy bears, moving objects, doing dishes, washing my clothes...
    She looked over to Raven, noticing her odd look. "I'm sorry. I thought you were talking to me." She laughed. "I get most things confused. When I went to England, I put white as my nationality."

    Oh that was pure fun. The look on that guard's face. Like he forgot a nation or something!
