    Annie stepped out of the small room, leaving their burning fire seed plants behind. She wasn’t worried that they’d cause a problem because the space was enchanted to contain things of that nature. The dank dungeon air filled her nostrils and she recognized the pungent odor as decaying fruit.

    The torches were still lit casting shadows everywhere Annie looked. “Do you suppose there might be some type of reference library down here?” she asked, looking back at the room they had just come from.

    “Maybe one of these rooms has just what we’re looking for?”

    Looking around the expanse, Kerry figured any of these rooms could hold a reference room. "It's worth a look," he said. "You can go down that way--" He pointed to his left, "and I'll look down here."

    Kerry turned and wandered off, looking above and to the sides of doors, thinking that, unlike Hogwarts, they might actually label a room--

    Annie was nervous about splitting up but she reluctantly agreed and began walking. She realized pretty fast that none of the doors were labeled. Of course...

    It was clear that here, just like its Scottish counterpart, they worked off the assumption that everyone was a psychic and knew what was behind every door. I would expect this at another school for Gifted Children, but here . . ..

    It didn't matter. Kerry began looking behind doors. The first couple were locked, but the next two weren't. While they were just rooms with--things--in them, the third door that opened--

    Bingo.

    "Annie!!" he cried, his voice echoing through the dungeon. "I found it!"

    Annie was striking out with all of her doors when she heard Kerry call for her. She sprinted back to his side and peered into the room. It was similar to the one they had just left except this room was crammed full of books and scrolls. Annie assumed the scrolls were extra copies of the ones that now decorated the classroom above them.

    “Let’s get looking,” she said. “We’re running out of time. Professor Douglas should be back soon.”

    Kerry nodded. He figured they had maybe 20 minutes to do this. "Understood," he said. "I'll take this side of the room, and you take the other."

    He started a quick scan of titles, looking for "General Book of Charms" or "How to Train Your Freezing Charm" or something like that . . ..





    Looking for Charms book:

    Annie started perusing the titles on her side of the room, looking for anything that looked as though it might have the charm they needed inside. A lot of the books were ones she had never seen before and looked to be well over a hundred years old.

    Glancing at the titles...

    And there it was, second shelf. "I think I got it," Kerry said. "Basic Book of Charms, Years 1 to 5."

    He opened it up and started looking through it, then handed it to Annie. "You know better about this," he said. "You'll find it faster."

    Annie searched the index and found the charm listed under Advanced Water Charms. She quickly flipped to the page and held the book up so they could both scan the spell.

      Glacius is a freezing charm used to put out fires and create ice blocks. The spell a charm that conjures a blast of freezing cold air from the end of the wand. The air is so cold it can freeze several inches of water solid within seconds, making it solid enough for at least an average-sized thirteen-year-old to walk across.

      In order to perform the charm correctly, the caster should point their wand directly at the object to be frozen, hold their breath for five seconds before reciting the incantation.


    "There isn't anything else here," Annie said, a little disappointed in the glaring lack of information the book provided. "I suppose this will have to do. Are you ready to go back and try it out? If we can't get it to work, I'm sure Professor Douglas wouldn't mind helping us out."

    Nodding, Kerry hurried to the door. "Sure, lets roll this!" He was out and heading back to the fire chamber. He unlocked the door, then ushered Annie back inside.

    At this point he figured they had maybe 15 minutes.

    "You first," he said. "I think you'll have the magic on your side this time."

    In a rush, Annie pulled out her wand and pointed it at the bush--that was still curiously blazing, despite being on fire for quite a while.

    She held her breath and counted to five. "Glacius,"

    "All right!." Kerry smiled as Annie's wand erupted with a cold blast of air emanating from the tip. Lina should have been here, he thought. She could get some practice in.

    Standing back from his busy, Kerry pointed his wand and set to freeze the fire out. "Glacius!" he called--

    Annie was thrilled her Fire Seed Bush sat frozen in front of her. She jumped up and clapped before backing up to watch Kerry at work. When his wand sat idle, she tilted her head and wondered what went wrong.

    She sidled up to him, nuzzling his neck. "That's alright, Kerry," she crooned. "Remember to hold your breath before you set your spell loose." She tilted her head and kissed his lips, counting to five in her head before pulling away. "Like that."

    She smiled and backed away once again. "You can do it."

    Kerry held his eyes closed for a moment after the kissing, thinking how nice it'd been--even in a warm dungeon with a burning bush. Very nice.

    "Right . . ." He smiled but didn't let Annie go. "Point; hold my breath . . . and--" He looked down the length of his wand to the bush. "Glacius."

    Annie stared as a powerful jet of freezing cold air emerged from the tip of Kerry's wand. It was so powerful, her hair blew back from her shoulders. She shivered from the sudden drop in the temperature of the room.

    "Whoa," she said, beaming up at him. "I guess a little encouragement goes a long way." She kissed him again, lingering a bit longer than before.

    "I think we should finish harvesting these seeds before Professor Douglas comes back."

    Kerry slid his wand into his backpack and pulled out some cloth to wrap up their seeds. He handed one sheet to Annie. "I wonder if she'll be surprised?" he said. "Professor Douglas." Kerry started to harvest his seeds. "Do you think she expected us to do this?"

    “I’m sure it can’t be that bad,” Wednesday said as she pushed open the door. “I can fix…” Her jaw dropped as she witnessed the scene.

    “How…” Her eyes passed from one perfectly frozen bush to the other. “It can’t be. I didn’t even leave you a spell chart for the Glacius Charm.”

    Wednesday walked into the room, closing the door behind her. She gazed at the two first years. “Who helped you? How were you able to manage all of this?”

    There was a moment when Kerry thought Professor Douglas was pissed about something--then he realized what the problem was: she was surprised. Very surprised.

    "No one helped us, Professor," Kerry said. "We did the Flower Charm like we learned the other day, and did the Fire Charm with the diagram you left."

    He shot a quick look to Annie, then back to Wednesday. "As for the Glacius Charm . . . we found the reference books down the hall, so we looked it up, figure how to do it, and . . ." He looked around, holding arms wide. "Did it." He checked up before barreling onward father. "We didn't do anything wrong, did we?"

    A slow smile spread across Wednesday’s face while the boy spoke. “Wrong? You’ve done everything exactly right!” She was thrilled and grabbed him up in a big bear hug. “This is just wonderful. I never expected…” She turned on the girl and pulled her into the hug as well.

    “Here I have fourth years upstairs exploding feathers and down here, a couple of first years are producing perfect Fire Seed Bushes, setting them alight, and then freezing them without as much as breaking a sweat!”

    She let them both go, but held each by the shoulder. “Ten points each for coven Cernunnos.” Wednesday crossed over to the bushes, examining their work.

    “Amazing…” she muttered. “What are your names, first years?”

    "I'm Kerry Malibey, Professor." He pointed around her to Annie. "She's Annie Krum. We're in Cernunnos, if that matters." He smiled up at Professor Douglas. "Thank you for the points," he said, feeling a little uncomfortable.

    But why should he be? He and Annie were working, learning . . . it was her idea to do this, and they worked together to figure out how to do it. Like Professor Salomon said, don't let anyone think I'm not as good just because I'm Muggle-born. Kerry was feeling deep satisfaction at the moment--

    And he was glad to share it with Annie.

    “Malibey,” she said, thinking. “Ah, yes… The boy with the sight. Denna was very interested in what I had to say after our first meeting. I think she might believe you have something in that regard. After what I’ve just seen here, I’m more inclined to believe you are more than what you seem.”

    She turned to the girl and raised her eyebrows. “Krum, is it?” Wednesday had already heard a lot of gossip about this young girl.

    Wednesday smiled at both students. “Well, I think you two had better be moving along.” She watched as the pair collected the seeds from their plant and then escorted them both upstairs. Once they had reached the dungeon entrance, she hugged them both once again.

    “I’m really very proud of both of you…for trying, mostly—and for not giving up. I’ll see you both next class.” She turned on her heels and left them both to find their own way out of the building.
