Kimber Yates did not understand at Hogwarts at all. He had been so excited to be a Hufflepuff, but now he was starting to give up on the whole thing. Now he almost hated the house and he was given a prefect badge. He'd naturally hidden it from his family, since he didn't want his family to see it at all. Instead it'd been burred in between the pages of one of his several dueling books. This shouldn't be too bad, right? No one would know and there wouldn't be an issue at all. Instead he kept it all a secret as he did with most things in his life.
But now he was at school and he couldn't hide the badge. He wasn't embarrassed by it, but he was sure they gave it to the wrong person. On top of that he finally was able to sleep in a bedroom again. On top of giving him the badge, the professor gave him a new dorm room with the sixth years. This was just fine with him though. He was working on not fighting with his new dormmate. Maybe they'd be friends?
No. But oh well.
So Kimber was sitting in the trophy room looking at his new badge. His fingers ran over the top of it the way he had longed to do over summer.
