He quickly got to work, propping up his copies of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Magical Drafts and Potions, and The Dark Forces: A Guide to Self-Protection up in front of him, creating a barrier that separated him from the other students.
He'd often done this whenever his past teachers had held a spelling or multiplication quiz to hide his answers. Well, he said he used them to hide his answers, in reality, it tended to attract people to his presence, plus it made his classmates laugh, which was always a good thing.
He opened his copy of A History of Magic and lay it out in front of him.
He tempted to take notes, but didn't dare go anywhere near his inkwell and quills just yet. Being left handed meant writing with a regular pen was hard enough, God knew what writing with actual ink would do. He'd probably end up with a Jackson Pollock painting of smudged ink.
So, he read, head bent down and propped up in his hands, waiting for someone to notice him.
