Well it was Quiet...

Recommended Posts

It was a cool winter's day in January, and the sun had finally decided to come out and play for the first time in days. Looking out the window, she yearned for the scent of fresh air outside the castle walls, but upon further observation she decided against it. She convinced herself that her observations were most astute once she glanced at the ice still clinging to the window ledge. Outside, a chill still hung in the air as the wind swept over the snowbanks. Occasionally the soft powder would get swept up in a soft flurry that gave the illusory appearance of pixies frolicking in the snow. Mila found herself sitting in an alcove, letting the sun grace her skin as she read. The book that the young, erudite student had in her hands wasn't written by the most illustrious of authors. Nor was it on the most innovative of topics. While it was true that Mila was often found with such literature in hand, being the scholarly individual she was, this tale was simply one of comfort and familiarity. It was a jovial little tale about bronze dragon who had the power to cheer up anyone and a grumpy, but clever knight that had been sent to slay them. The two formed a unique bond that made the story form a heartwarming ending. Though Mila was not typically a dexterous person, she could have convinced anyone who saw her read that she was by how nimbly her fingers could turn the pages to keep up with her reading pace. Mila read her book voraciously, enjoying every second of her chance to simply escape from the real world for a moment. It was so rare to find anywhere to read in peace around the castle.

Harvey spotted his sister's golden hair from just outside the castle. There she was, nose buried in a book again. Harvey hadn't seen her around as much lately, having actually been studying and everything. He normally wasn't the studying type, but with OWLS coming up so soon he had actually been worrying about grades for once. Sometimes he wished he had inherited a similar reading prowess to his sister or at least something in that vien. Though when he thought about it, there were so many other things he would rather do with his time. Explore the grounds with Edwin, for example. The two strong-willed boys made perfect explorers - just the right combination of brave, curious, and just a little bit naive.His sister on the other hand... well, there she was, reading again.

Mila may have found him a bit domineering these days... he had to admit he somewhat regretted that. He was her big brother after all, sworn to guard her from all evils. Then again, it wasn't his fault the girl couldn't take a joke. Speaking of which...

A sly grin crossed his face. He'd just thought up a prank. A rather humorous prank if he did say so himself. Original too! (He tended to reuse tactics that Edwin came up with, so thinking of one on his own was even more of an accomplishment. He chuckled at the thought of his sister's inevitable reaction, though not loud enough for her to hear. There was no malice in that laugh. Harvey had far from deserted the deep care he had for his sibling. It was simply a jovial, joking laugh. He'd never hurt her of course, just give her a funny little scare. Heck, he'd heard that surprises could be considered therapudic.

He quietly crept toward her position. Muttering a spell under his breath, Harvey flicked his wand silently through the air. A simple illusion spell, easy enough for a fifth year with his level of talent. As his whisper concluded, a large, black, illusory spider crawled onto the pages on Mila's book, as though it had just been chilling there on the outside cover. Harvey hid himself behind a tree, eagerly awaiting his sister's reaction.

Mila had lost herself in the pages yet again. She loved stories of all kinds and this tale was no different. So it should come as no surprise that she was oblivious to her brother sneaking up on her. She hadn't heard him whisper his spell. So it was all the more terrifying when from the underside of her book, she spied an 8-legged atrocity clambering onto her page. "No. No. No. No. No. Eeeeek!" Mila screamed and dropped the book. Spiders terrified her. She couldn't stand the creatures. The girl was in near tears from seeing it when she caught sight of someone in the corner of her eyes.

"Harvey Allan Prewitt! You are despicable!" She stomped her foot. Uncertain if the spider was real, and planted magically, or an illusion conjured by him, she was certain about one thing. It was his fault the spider had appeared and ruined her perfectly good day. "You are a menace!" She looked around, surprised for a moment that Edwin wasn't around. Usually these awful plans were his doing.

Mila was moments away from pulling out her wand when she reminded herself that her fool of a brother was not worth getting expelled for.
