"Hey! Wanna do some spell practicing? I've been wanted to do the Furunculus curse for ages now! I beat someone in a duel with it before, mind you!" She added to her new friends stares. She had loved spell-casting and dueling more than anything, even Quidditch, and wanting to be the best at it, was natural. She was ambitious for someone as small as she was. She swiftly took out another book, titled, 'Spell-Casting. All you Need to know about Hexes and Jinx's'!' and opened it, but inside, were only a few real book pages, the rest were all blank sheets of Parchment she had scribbled on, and had stuck inside the book to help her remember curses and hexes. She took out one labeled, 'Best Hexes for Distraction! You'll thank me later.' and read it thoroughly, completely ignoring the other girls, but her mind was working swiftly, thoughts were racing so fast she couldn't keep them, and she thought about her dead owl, her best friend. It took a lot to make sure tears didn't come.
She collapsed into her original chair and began re-reading the page, it was helping soothe the pain, that couldn't be cured.
