Austin starts to wonder if the Professor would come. Maybe that rude guy was right.
Maybe they were waiting for nothing but thin air?
It didn't matter. Austin was bored and he had to find a way to amuse himself, somehow.
It wasn't long until Austin's mind came up of something brilliant. He remembered something. "THE FOREST!" Austin seemed to say out loud.
It was almost like everyone stared at him as he said those words. Austin puts on his apologetic face and smiles at everyone, all while saying sorry.
He wondered, though, are they allowed to go to the forest? He already saw about two people go outside. He grabs a thing he copied from the school bulletin board from his pocket, it contained the school rules.
He ran through the pages of the book but he saw nothing. He was confused. He knew he copied everything from the board! But where was it?
He read everything from top to bottom.
But he still couldn't find it.
This bothered him massively. He was bored but he didn't want to break the school rules!
He starts to think. 'That rude guy is outside, does he even know the rules?' 'He says stuff as if he knows everything. I mean, he might, right?'
Austin couldn't think of anything else to do so he grabs out a notebook he was carrying from under his desk. It was a pretty large one.
It was labeled, ''Beasts of Hogwarts, Austin Finch" The notebook looked pretty old. It was dark red.
Written there was his beast discoveries in Hogwarts. Sadly, he couldn't write something in the notebook since he never actually saw a magical beast in Hogwarts yet. And if he did, he wouldn't have a camera to take a picture of it and paste it in the notebook.
Austin starts to think. He might find creatures in the forest! If he went outside, and he didn't know the rules, then that would be a good execuse! I mean, the professor wasn't there! What is there to do?
Choices were fighting in his mind. He starts to compare the choices in his mind.
'If I waited patiently here, I'd be safe. If I went outside, It would be dangerous and I might get into trouble.' Austin thinks. 'Maybe I should ask Verla's opinion.'
"Verla," Austin smiled at Verla as he says, "You're a Hufflepuff, right? Do you think we should go outside to the forest? I'm getting kind of bored. I'm not sure if it's against the rules, though. Kaegen definitely did go outside. That brat."
"What do you think, Verla? I'm getting kinda bored, Kaegen might be right." Austin asks in a whispery tone. He puts his hand on behind of his head and scratches it.
