A shiver wracked Reid's frame, causing the hairs on the back of his neck and on his arms to stand up. His heart didn't calm down, if anything it had sped itself up without fail. There was no going back now though, he had sat himself down and whatever happened next had a share of his fault. His gaze was so stuck on the book that he didn't entirely hear Kendra. Clear name houses? He wondered what she meant exactly, was Hufflepuff really all that clear?

He took a few wild guesses in the back of his mind and turned his attention back to the restricted text. His tapping slowed down as he looked up at the Slytherin, was she ... ? "Wait, are you ... trying to learn it?" he spoke in a hushed tone. His forehead creased into hard lines, concerned of what her intentions were with the book. If that was truly the case, would he have the courage to stop her - maybe. Still, he didn't jump to conclusions just yet even though the nature of the book didn't elude him. It was a text about the Dark Arts, something his mother told him their family had fought against. Yet he didn't know any other reason off the top of his head as to why she would want a book like this.

Kendra was studying the page with more interest than anything she had ever studied so far. She knew she didn't have all time to herself so she tried to be as quick as possible. Was she looking for something specific? She didn't even know what it was that made her so drawn into the world the book was presenting. "Wait, are you...trying to learn it?" She almost jumped off her seat feeling like she was caught doing something she wasn't supposed to. But that was rather the case wasn't it?  She looked at the Hufflepuff and bit her lip nervously. 

"Umm...no I am just curious." she muttered "I mean... aren't you curious?" she asked "It's not like we can use any of the stuff written in here, we are only first years." she said.

She didn't know what to believe about herself. Was she really interested in learning this kind of magic or was it just something forbidden and exciting to look upon? Or was it both? She leaned back on her chair and looked at both of the students once more. 

"Besides, if they didn't want us to find this they wouldn't have made it so easy to get our hands on it." she argued.

In truth, yes he was curious. It just took longer for him to admit that out loud and to himself. "Well ..." The boy slowly bobbed his head back and forth, lips pursed and brows furrowed. His expression relaxed and he finally nodded to the girl, "Yeah, I am - but curious on a general-level." Leave it to him to be the death of the party when it came to exploration. He couldn't help it, he was too young to leave this world not knowing if Chocolate Frogs are either frogs covered in chocolate or just actual chocolate frogs. But she had a bit of a point to make there. 

That was a pretty easy find if she didn't even get caught, where were the librarians? Was there not even a ghost wandering the Restricted Section to wail? What if they were being watched and they were just waiting for the right moment to frame them? Truly he didn't think this through. "How did you get into the section anyway? Did you just step past some ropes?" That or she could just be quite the sleuth and somehow managed to do something out of the ordinary. 

Reid leaned over a little closer to peer at the book, silently reading some of the text on the pages. Some of it he didn't exactly understand, not that he wanted to anyway. The girls seem to also have more know-how in comparison to him. "What about Dark Magic were you curious about?"

Sophia cupped her hands in her lap, listening carefully to Reid. She thoughtfully pondered for the answers. “To answer your second question, she just stepped over the ropes separating the actual library to the restricted section. I was technically sitting watch. Really, I was reading but still.” Sophia smiled at Reid and then to Kendra and then began to softly grimace at the book. The book made her feel strange. She was still her - of course - but there was a sick feeling in the pit of her stomach. Nothing she’d ever felt before, but it caused a slight nostalgic feeling. Sophia looked behind her and pushed her chair back a bit. The wooden legs on the stone ground made a sickening, screeching squeak. Just for even less than a split second, the squeak echoed ominously throughout the library. One question had lingered through Sophia’s mind since they’d all met just a few minutes ago: Was anyone else actually in the library? It didn’t seem that the librarian had come back yet from where ever she was, or that any other students had entered or left in the past few minutes. It was like, as soon as Kendra had taken the book, the whole library had gone silent; isolated even.

Reducio
Guys I am sorry it has been a long weekend and I was unable to come online. If you are not interested in continuing this it's okay I will totally understand!


Kendra crossed her arms and looked at Reid and Sophia examining their faces trying to contemplate how this would turn out. 

"I just believe white and dark magic are two sides of the same coin. How can someone hold a coin without looking at both sides?" she argued. 

Truth was she had barely even touched the white side of the coin before turning it over but she was curious and she couldn't help it. Besides, this might be the only way to understand... Her thoughts drifted onto her brothers. She wasn't sure she wanted to share her only previous experience with...the other side of the coin. 
.
She flipped the page and her eyes landed on the title of the new chapter. Secrets of the Killing Curse. She suddenly felt a strange sensation, even stranger than before. She thought she heard a scream and she realised she had frozen in terror. It was as if something was threatening her life...something was out for her. The scream grew louder and louder and she felt herself drifting away when suddenly something snapped her back to reality. She gasped for air unsure what had just happened.

Reducio
It's no worries! I wasn't sure if you wanted to continue or not!



Reid pursed his lips, she made a strong point and yet he wanted to argue it as it was. Yet he agreed to this, he couldn't speak of it anyway even if he wanted to. However he didn't want to and that's what scared him a little. The boy sunk in his chair with a concerned expression, it seemed too easy of a book to get a hold of. What was the wizarding world's true opinion of the Dark Arts anyhow? Was it an acceptable thing to do? Perhaps it was something that could land anyone in prison. 

"What if that book tricks ..." Reid's voice trailed off as he noticed something was wrong with Kendra, at least that's what it seemed. She seemed to have frozen in place. His eyes widened and he shot forward as soon as she broken out of her trance-like state. His hand had come upon the book, ready to fling it to the side but he hesitated when she came to. 

"What happened? Are you okay?" he asked, starting to feel genuinely uneasy. Reid could only glance twice at the pages of the book, his hand had covered the title of the section she had begun reading. Yet he could only see the words 'K-i-l' and 'C-u-r' between his fingertips. He tore himself away from it, perhaps this book wasn't just a book. Yet it could be a lot of things, anything but good.

Kendra was still deeply confused. What was that scream. Did anyone else hear it? She looked around.  Her heart beat faster at the thought of getting caught and she tried to focus on what was happening. 

Was she going insane? She looked down at the book and noticed Reid's move to push it away as well as his sudden change of mind a few seconds after touching it.  He must have felt it too. She wasn't certain as to how to answer his question. 

"Did you hear that just now?" she asked with a worried look on her face. "I heard a scream...and then it felt like something was..." her mind was working very fast "Like something dangerous was here, with us." her words fainted into a whisper as she stared wide eyed at Reid and Sophia. "Did you feel that too?" she inquired desperate to feel like she wasn't alone in this.  

She had never really felt strong magic in her life. Both her parents were wizards but concerning Kendra one could say her magic was very weak and underdeveloped. For something magical to affect her in such way... It was the weirdest feeling she had ever experienced. It was frightening and intriguing at the same time.

A scream? Reid tried not to let his fear get the best of him, he tried not to feel scared or worried. Yet a cold sweat formed on his forehead as he watched Kendra closely. "I felt ... something." he hoarsely replied. It could have been a placebo effect, but he couldn't help but feel threatened all of a sudden. The only thing that kept him from bolting was the fact that he was afraid to even turn around. 

His imagination could do so many things to him, including figments of specters that didn't exist. He never felt this type of feeling before, one that was ominous. It lingered like a bad itch even after she said that, it didn't leave his mind that easily either. There was a fear in his head that was growing, but his rational thought was simply telling him to relax. 

"Can we put the book away? Are you taking it with you?" he asked the Slytherin. Reid couldn't imagine her taking it after what just happened. Yet he didn't always know how far curiosity can go when it came the youth. He would be tempted to take and study it too, but his fear would knock some sense into him. What if someone was to get a hold of it? His blood ran cold at the thought of hearing that it was taken from the library, yet Kendra's choice was beyond his. She was the one in possession of the book.

Kendra sighed with obvious and somewhat disturbing disappointment. Her housemates would die of jealousy had they seen her carry around such a book. Wait a minute... Why did she think that way? Slytherins were known for their strong will for power and recognition, but Kendra never considered herself jealous or competitive. So what was happening to her? She gathered her thoughts and looked at Reid. 

"I can't take it." she said picking up a Divination book that layed around on the table to show Reid what she meant. 

On the first page there was a set of rules explaining how you have to ask for the Librarian's permission if you wish to take a book out of the Library. She shivered at the thought of the Librarian. Just below that there was also a set of rules preventing students ripping or in any other way damaging the books. So many rules...  

"Or can I?" she had broken rules already, and the Librarian was nowhere to be seen. The way she thought about it, this book must have been very old and forgotten so noone would notice it was missing from the shelf anyways."I think these rules are there to terrorize us, nothing is really going to happen, if so why would they leave the Restricted Section unprotected? Getting my hands on this was like stealing candy from a toddler!" she said her eyes sparkling with excitement. "Will you keep this a secret?" she asked the Hufflepuff boy.
