"Finally," was the first word that came to Piper's mind when she stepped into the library, releasing a quiet 'phew' as she took it all in. It was just like her older brother had described it when he was at home on break last year - an endless expanse of books, beautiful interior design with the right amount of light, an immersive and studious air. Ever since then, she had dreamed about seeing it all for herself, and more importantly, reading the books inside.
After becoming aware she was in the way of equally excited students, she stepped away from the door and wandered around. Piper realized that despite impatiently waiting for this day, she never once thought about what book she should read first. And how she underestimated how many books there would be! She was used to towering over many of the shelves in her primary school, being quite tall for her age, but that was not the case at all here.
Suddenly, Piper felt her heart drop a little. She felt so insignificantly small for one of the first times in her life. Not only was she in a bigger building than she ever had been, she was also no longer the top student. She knew that she would make many mistakes and ask for help for once. Hogwarts would be her greatest challenge yet.
"This is no time for feeling sorry for myself," she thought and looked around, spotting someone to ask for help for the first time.
"Hey, I'm Piper. Know any good books?"
