"Alohomora," she said. She performed a wand movement that at first looked like a weird "s" shape. After considering it a little longer, he realized it looked a bit like a rounded lock with the top ring unlatched.
James didn't know if this would help him learn the spell himself, but he guessed it wouldn't hurt to try and pay attention.
The lock fell off with a clank and Kat pulled out two brooms, one for her and one for him. He accepted it gratefully. This hadn't been his first time touching a magical broomstick, but his first time holding one. He lightly brushed his hand down the wood, feeling the length of the broom.
"Ready?" he heard Kat ask.
James looked up at her from the broom and a grin spread across his face.
"Yeah. I'm ready." he said. Phoenix clapped quietly behind them, and James wondered if Phoenix could tell how loud he actually was.
James held the broom to his side and assumed a ready position.
Make a dragon in your mind and then paint it on your shoulder.
