Looking outside

Megan walked restlessly around her room. There wasn't much place to pace but she was doing the best with what she had. It was clear to her that things needed to change. She had been at Hogwarts for three years already, doing the same things over and over again. If she was honest with herself, she was going nowhere fast.

"I need a project," she said forcefully, "something to keep my hands and mind busy. I need something different."

Grabbing her robe and bookbag, she decided to do something she had been meaning to do for awhile. It wasn't a project so much as a way of expanding her horizons. Sure enough, he was right where she had seen him last Saturday, quietly hidden in an alcove with a stack of books.

"Hi. Can I sit here with you?"

Terry looked up quickly and swallowed. "Sure."

She could tell he was just being nice and didn't really want her here but she was resolved to make a new friend with someone who seemed like they could use one. She let the silence drag on for half an hour before she finally asked, "You're friends with Padma, right? I'd ask her this but I don't think she'd appreciate talking to me right now. Could you help me with the assignment in History of Magic? I'm just not getting it."
