Dane Golden-Keisi

A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.

Dane was an unusual person. Fortunately, he knew that and had accepted it a long time ago. He was comfortable in his skin. He was aware of who he was and was not willing to change it. He didn’t have insecurities like all the other students in his year seemed to have. In some ways, it was nice because he didn’t have to waste time worrying about trivial matters. But in other ways, it made him an extremely awkward person and thus, he didn’t have many friends and was usually by himself if he was not found with his twin, Drew.

 

He often spent time in the library, reading up on anything and everything. Usually it was about statistics, psychology, or experimentation. There were so many things that he found fascinating, though. Oftentimes, he had to have his parents buy books and have them sent to Hogwarts because the library didn’t have the reading material that he was looking for. It was disappointing but now that he was in his third year, he’d grown used to it.

 

As he left the library, a new book in hand, he kept away from the other students in the corridor. From the look of it, he didn’t know any of them and that meant he didn’t want to interact with them. He turned a corner and fell, his untied shoelaces getting the better of him. He thumped to the ground and sighed. It wasn’t the first time that had happened and he was sure it wouldn’t be the last because he was so clumsy and he tied his shoes too loosely to do him any good.

Alayna was an awkward person. It was a rare occasion when she knew exactly what to say to anyone and usually that meant that she was doomed to erupt into a rambling mess more often than not.  She managed to avoid the most uncomfortable of ordeals by avoiding most others and just sticking close to those she was knew well, but even the people in that category seemed to slowly be sinking into some form of awkwardness with her. But could nothing be allowed to be normal anymore? Was she just supposed to get used to this weird… weirdness? Supposedly she was, but the girl didn’t like it. She didn’t like it at all.

 

She felt even more on-edge as she walked through the halls now. Was that person looking at her weird? No… they couldn’t be. Why would they be?! Okay but that person had definitely… did it matter?! Nope! No it did not. Where was she supposed to be going again? Oh. Right.

 

Alayna had taken to going to elsewhere to finish her homework to minimize awkwardness as much as possible; especially after her little mishap with Jake. Sitting in the main common room for more than a minute was near torture, so she had no choice but to find a relatively abandoned place to get it done. Sometimes that place was an unoccupied classroom… others a hallway, or- when she was lucky, the library where she could actually sit and pretend to be semi-normal. The girl headed there now to check and see if anyone on her ‘avoid list’ was there, but before she could make it a relatively bothersome scene caught her attention.

 

A boy fell, one that looked at least a little familiar, and by the way it happened it seemed like he might’ve really hurt himself. “Are you okay?!” Alayna squeaked as she dashed over to him. “Are you hurt? Do… do you need to go to the hospital wing?”
