September 3rd 2018
It was Monday, she had dreaded the first few lessons of the semester. There weren’t any practicals yet, no new spells were taught in class, only boring lectures. She had trouble waking up the morning and was late for breakfast. She had spent most of the Summer Break sleeping in that she had to get used to waking up early again.
A few students pushed past her, almost causing the girl to lose her balance. Rude, Aurelia thought. The first years were too eager to get to the great hall for lunch that they were acting as if the food was going to disappear if they didn’t get there fast enough. Part of it was true, the good food usually would disappear within the first few minutes of lunch, leaving dishes like fried flobberworms or other not so appealing ones like mushrooms. Aurelia hoped that the majority of the first years would get lost in the halls so there would still be a decent amount varieties left when she gets there.
Aurelia trotted down the staircase, which was clearly not big enough for hundreds of students streaming down to get their bellies filled. Aurelia decided to slow down and let the crowd pass, she hated narrow spaces, it had made her feel vulnerable and restrained. Seconds passed and the number of students going down the stairs got smaller. She finally resumed her normal pace down the steps.
Then her foot landed on something uneven. Her heart stopped but she had grabbed the railing just in time to avoid her from falling down the steps and snapping her neck like how her late Brother did. She let out a puff of air, relieved she hadn’t just died on her official first day of school.
Aurelia lifted her foot only to see silver shards glimmering back at her with a thin chain connected to it. She carefully picked it up, ensuring not to let the small pieces cut her. She had stepped on a necklace. What seemed like a beautiful piece of work was now shattered, but at least she hadn’t fallen to her doom while tripping on it.
