    Yes, Rivânia was a bit nervous, but it was a nervousness that came with the understanding she was trying something for the first time that no one else in the advanced class had ever tried. First time wandless, she thought, and Rivânia had waited for this moment for a long time.

    She didn't want to blow it, even if she was setting the bar a little high for herself.

    She wasn't interested in dolls or plushie things. Sure, they looked cute, but she wanted to be serious. And seeing a Hello Kitty or a squid monster flying through the air wasn't her idea of serious. She positioned her hands and wondered if Wednesday had thought of here as she said, "Accio throw pillow."

    Not even a twitch. Oh, well, Rivânia thought. She continued smiling 'cause neither Nadine or the new kid--Kerry--got theirs the first time. There's plenty of time, she thought, and I'm going to use it all.

    She positioned herself and set her hands like she was ready to catch the pillow. Taking a deep breath, she imagined the wand in her hand and said, "Accio throw pillow."

    This time she felt a little something, but still the pillow refused to move. Rivânia felt a bit of heat coming off her neck because she knew she could do this, and while she wasn't the sort to curse like Nadine, she didn't like being... shown... up....

    She locked her hands into place, saw the pillow flying towards her and said, "Accio throw pillow."

    And with a big time boost the pillow flew off the table right into Rivânia's hands. There was applause for being the first to do it wandless, and she took a bow to recognize their approval.

    Now to put it back... She thought it might be easier to do, though she knew that wasn't the case. But if she thought about it like she was putting the pillow on the table, then maybe it'd be easy as Rivânia held her hands just so and said, feeling a little push as she did, "Depulso."

    For a moment Rivânia thought it was going to happen, there was that surge that occurs with magic, and she felt it in her hands, but... no, the pillow didn't move.

    "Try it again," she mumbled. Hands ready, she willed the pillow back with a chant of "Depulso."

    The pillow flew across the room and put itself back on the table. Rivânia was happy; if nothing else she could say she did it; a summon and banishment wandless. She'd do more, but for now, she'd take this.

    Then she looked at the Kitty doll and thought, Yeah, why not? and put her hand into position and called, "Accio Hello Kitty."

    But Hello Kitty didn't want to come, so Rivânia decided that now that stupid doll had better do as she said! "Venha quando eu o chamo, Kitty!" she ordered, pointing at herself. She dug in like she was going to stop a broom and said, "Accio Hello Kitty!"

    And still nothing. Rivânia spun her fedora off into a corner of the room and yelled, "Screw it!" before getting set to catch this devil doll--

    "Accio Hello Kitty!"

    Rivânia mumbled "Boneca estúpida," and decided she'd give this one last try. Yeah, it was hard, but she did it once and she was sure she could do it again. All she had to do is want... and summon... "Accio Hello Kitty!"

    Wednesday walked over to Rivânia and gave her a hug. "You did marvelously, Riv," she said, pinching her cheek. "First to go wandless in this class; you should be proud!"

    She held out her hand and the Hello Kitty doll flew to her. "Now, I want you to finish out banishment." She held the doll up on her open hands, grinning. "I know you can do it, so give it your best."

    Rivânia nodded, then concentrated on banishing this hell doll back to the table... and beyond... "Depulso!"

    Kitty went back to the table, and Rivânia grinned. Wends summoned the doll back and nodded as she held the Kitty up for her to banish once more--

    This is more like it, she thought, and her spirits rose as she did two wandless banishments in a row. As Wednesday readied the doll again, calm but smiling, Rivânia keep her mind clear and her hands before her, ready to send this little demon flying--

    "Depulso!"

    Rivânia nodded as Wends continued holding the cat, smiling and giving her a wink as if to say, You have it in you. And she knew she did--otherwise she wouldn't be here--

    She smiled back and then pushed her hands out, saying, "Depulso!"

    Rivânia did four banishments... she didn't even have to tell Wednesday what she wanted to do when she summoned the doll back and gave Rivânia that look that said, Put it on the table.

    Both were smiling broadly as Rivânia pushed her hands out and said, "Depulso!"

    As much as Rivânia wanted to get the feel for this version of the charm, she knew she was pushing it too hard. She said, "Okay, Wends," and put her arms down.

    Wednesday banished the doll back to the table, then came over and gave Rivânia another hug. "Five successful wandless charms," she said to the whole class as she hugged her. "This is a very special moment." She released Rivânia, who returned to her chair with a huge smile on her face. It's not what I wanted, she thought as she sat, but it's really good for a first time.

    Annie couldn't wait any longer. She popped out of her seat before anyone else had a chance to take center stage.

    "Mind if I take a crack at it, Prof...er, Wends." She felt her cheeks heat up, but giggled and pulled her wand free when no one objected. I'm not familiar with any of these shaped pillows, she thought, eyeing each in turn.

    Deciding it was better to play it safe, Annie pointed her wand at the throw pillow--focusing on the motion of her wand. The silence and the eyes in the room distracted her a bit. She lowered her wand and looked at each of the students.

    "I've never done this particular spell before and I'm not sure what's about to happen." She laughed, the sound a little to high in her own ears.

    "Well...here goes?" She gave her wand a shake and said, "Accio throw pillow"

    "Isn't that pillow supposed to come flying across the room?" Annie shook her wand and peeked at the end of it. "It has to be the wand...right?" Not all the eyes and people watching. Not that at all. A flashback of her time in the new coven dungeon study room popped into her head and suddenly Annie was nervous about getting this spell to work.

    She smoothed her dress and tried again. "Accio throw pillow."

    Once again there was a whole lot of nothing happening. Annie was beginning to wonder why exactly she was in this class. Professor Douglas should take my spot and give it to someone who can get this to work.

    She glanced up at Kerry and winked... The silence in the room deafening. "I'm not feeling anything at all. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?"

    She tried again, this time with more wand flourish. "Accio throw pillow."

    "Something tells me this isn't going to work for me guys," she blurted to the classroom. "I'll try again." She shrugged and brandished her wand at the pillow across the room.

    Wednesday came over once she saw Annie was starting to get flustered. "Annie," she said quietly. She put her arm around the girl. "It's okay. Sometimes it doesn't feel like it's going to work. Sometimes it feels like you're on top of the world. But..."

    She touched her finger to Annie's forehead. "In your mind, remember, you control the magic; it doesn't control you. And never will." She stepped a little closer and said in a near whisper, "You can sit if you like, but I do want to see you try this again before class is over. That will give you a chance to regroup." Wednesday softly patted her back. "I've seen what you can do--you wouldn't be here, otherwise. Remember that."

    She stepped back and said to everyone, "Annie's going to try later. We're all about learning and not about forcing, isn't that right?"

    Annie slipped her wand back into place and slid back into her seat. The feeling of being defeated by the magic wasn't exactly a new feeling, but the humiliation was...and this wasn't the first time she'd been in this position.

    She figured her magic for tonight was over and resigned herself to watching the rest of the students pass the pillows back and forth.

    Wednesday wasn't disappointed; she remember the first night Harmony arrived last year; she broke down and cried when she couldn't carry out a 4th Year charm and pleaded to be allowed to leave the class. That wasn't Wednesday. She didn't believe in promotion/demotion; she believed in cultivation. She watched the dynamic between Annie and Kerry and knew they might all see magic before the night was out.

    In the meantime--

    "Okay, Harold." She curled a finger and motioned for him to come join her. "You're about do to show us your point and grab style, aren't you?" He grinned as she stepped aside. She knew she didn't need to go into detail about what needed to be done....

    Harold had been ready for this for a while. He'd tried some practice a few days ago and ... yeah, best not to talk about that. Anyway, that was the other night, this is tonight, and it's all gonna be different--

    The concept was simple: focus on the item and bring it to you. Visualize, Wednesday always said, and he'd been doing it with other--things. Not this crap. She always brings out strange stuff, he thought. The only person not bothered was that new kid ... he must have an affinity, like Wednesday ....

    He'd keep it simple: pillow, pull, mine! He lined up on the throw pillow, flicked his wand and said, "Accio!"
