No take. Only throw.

Eli peeled the tape off of the carry-box and opened up the lid. He had thought about where the safest place to let Professor Wollice's niffler get some exercise, and had decided on the library. The books sparkled to him with metaphorical value rather than real value. There was probably little that Nyx could get into here.

 

"Nyx look!" Eli said, smiling at the creature newly in his charge. He took from his pocket a knut he had taped to a string and threw it down an aisle, intending to play something akin to a game of fetch.

Kelby Matos

Kelby did not find herself in the library often, and when she did manage to spend time in the dust and grime, it was exclusively to learn more dueling spells. Though the Gryffindor found she wasn’t doing terribly in her classes this term, it was obvious what was most important to her. (Spoiler alert: the answer was always dueling.)

She ventured out of her usual section to try and understand look up the coward charm that had been appealing to her recently, but the first year was met with an odd sight instead. It looked like this Ravenclaw kid was trying to fish… with money… and a weird little creature? Had she mentioned lately that Hogwarts was a strange place?

“Why are you fishing in a library?”

Nyx

Nyx's beady little eyes lit up with the presence of the little bronze knut that she desperately wanted. Her little stub of a tail practically wagged as she wondered which way he was going to throw it. And when that knut when flying, and Nyx followed, scrambling off the table and knocking over several books.

 

PRECIOUS!

"Not fishing." Eli took a second look at his setup. "Ok, it's kind of fishing, but I'm in charge of Nyx for the week, and I can't just leave her in the box the whole time. She needs some kind of exercise." This was an academic statement. The knut bounced away, Nyx bounded after it, and Eli took the free second to pick the scattered books up off of the floor. He looked back at Kelby, slightly annoyed but mostly amused that she'd beaten him at semantics.

 

"Fine, it's exactly fishing."

 

Eli tugged on the string, but instead of reeling in a niffler, the string detached itself from the knut and fluttered empty back into Eli's hand. "Oooohdear."

Radueriel Benson

Rad was studying in the library, trying to memorize potion ingredients so he could at least have some sort of leg up in his very worst class, when he heard the voice of his Gryffinfriend (he was going to make this stick, ok??). She sounded curious and a little confused, which meant that whatever she was looking at would probably be of interest to the small Slytherin. So he dog-eared the page he was on and closed the textbook for later revising.

 

He trotted over to her, book tucked under his arm. She stood by a Ravenclaw boy Rad had never met, who in turn was standing in front of an odd setup including a string and a nervous face. "Hi," he said by way of greeting, mostly to Kelby but a little bit to the boy as well. "Was there supposed to be something on the end of that string?"

Nyx?

Kelby started to ask Eli who he meant by Nyx when the little creature hoped out of the box to chase after the coin. “Not that fishing is a bad thing, mind you,” she added when the Ravenclaw confirmed her suspicions. “I just thought it was a little weird in the library, but whatever floats your boat.”

People gave her odd looks all the time for her various behaviors, so she supposed it wasn’t fair of her to judge this boy who was trying to be responsible (without being gross! something most of her housemates needed a serious lesson on!)

It wasn’t until Rad approached and pointed out that the string now hanging loosely with nothing attached that Kelby realized the severity of the situation. “Um, I think we just accidentally let a creature free in the library.”



“Locomotor Mortis!” she called out, attempting to lock the legs of the creature who had escaped. “Wait, does the leg locker curse work on magical creature?”
