She pushed her way through the crowds of people, finally coming across a free table at the far end of the library. She had to stop herself from letting out a cheer of excitement. How sad was that? She was actually excited at the fact that she could get a table in the library to herself. Theo would be so disappointed in her and her nerdy ways. Shaking her head at herself, she plinked down in the nearest chair, pulling out her books and parchment and getting started on this whole stupid essay.
She wrote one paragraph, then two. And then her attention started to wane, and her progress all but slowed to a stop, unless you counted drawing a very good cartoon cat on her essay was productive. It was just so dull! Not even a subject she cared about. She set down her quill, before her cat became a cat army. That would definitely not benefit her grades. Instead, she started stacking the books on the table in front of her, turning them into a little hut, like muggles used for their dogs. She grinned to herself, pleased with her construction project. Another book from the shelf behind her made a lovely little door. Now she just needed a pet to go along with it!
Looking at her little hut, Rowan was inspired to think bigger. There were millions of books around her - approximately - and if just a few could make a hut, what could she possible make with these shelves and shelves worth of books? She immediately began pulling them from the shelf, stacking them in random piles on the floor, creating walls and corridors and turns. This was so much better than homework!
Footsteps approached, and Rowan looked up. Dang, caught by the librarian, who would probably string her up by her toes for something like this. But she was pleased to find another student. Or, at least, they looked like a student. "Want to help me build a fort?" she asked, just the slightest bit sheepish. She motioned at her construction so far. "Gotta defend ourselves against the evil books, you know." She could only hope that they'd say yes.
