Who: Nikolas Vaisey and Lucy Elkins What: Studying the wonderful world of Animagi...and stuff. Where: An empty classroom When: Friday, 22 January. Around seven o'clock. Rating/Warnings: TBA. Not high.
Nikolas was perched atop the large desk at the front of the classroom. Presumably it would be occupied by a professor during class hours, but right now he was considering it a very comfortable seat. His legs were folded in front of him and he was bent over a heavy-looking book - there were also several pieces of parchment next to him, scattered across the desk top, and an abandoned quill. It seemed he'd been here for a while, though what he was taking notes on was anyone's guess.
He and Lucy had decided to meet up again and, he supposed, talk about what she'd been studying. Sometimes, especially lately, he wondered why he was so interested. It was an intriguing topic, but it wasn't something he was studying personally, and how much could he really get out of this? Admittedly, he'd found himself paying much more attention during Transfiguration lately, taking more detailed notes, even asking more questions in the class. The book he was reading right now, in fact, was one he'd seen mentioned in his Transfiguration textbook index - apparently it had a very detailed chapter on Animagi, regarding what determines the animal one eventually becomes.
In short, and for reasons he wasn't completely sure of, Nikolas couldn't deny that he'd been looking forward to this all day. Maybe it was the prospect of an exciting weekend, with Quidditch and, hopefully, some time to relax. This was just a way to start it off...well, it felt right. Now it was just a matter of Lucy arriving. Maybe she'd forgotten?
