Chazie Felix

Hogwarts Express Year 1

The problem with books was that there are very few people who could enjoy the knowledge with you. Or, if you're in Chazie's shoes, listen to you talk and talk about it without getting bored and leaving. So Chazie liked to talk, it really wasn't a problem. For him at least.

 

The night before Chazie had been so excited that he would be going to Hogwarts the next morning, he couldn't sleep. So he picked up a book his mum had bought him awhile back that he tossed to the side. It was titled, Muggle Psychic Readings. The book proved to be very interesting and made Chazie laugh a few times about how ridiculous muggles were. Little did he know about divination yet. The book kept Chazie up all night, and only allowed him to get two hours of sleep. But the 11 year old body could run on that.

 

When he woke up, the book was still in his brain. He knew his mum probably wouldn't care about muggle readings, or she'd just reply with a generic response. He thought about how today he would be on a train filled with young wizards, but all of them were probably too excited to get to Hogwarts to care. But Chazie just really wanted to talk about this book and share what he knew about muggles and their crazy antics.

 

So he had this idea. And when Chazie had an idea, it was either a really good idea...or a really bad idea. There really was no gray area. Chazie had thought this was going to be an excellent idea.

 

Chazie quickly said good-bye to his mum. Too excited for his idea he had just got. He figured he could write her a letter if he ever missed her. The dark hair boy found an empty chamber on the train and took a piece of the new parchment he had bought, along with one of the quills and made a sign and hung it outside his compartment on the train.

He smiled at his work. There. Now he could tell people all about the book he read but they would think they were getting a muggle reading. How tricky was he?

 

The naive 11 year old went back into his compartment and waited for the flow of people. This was going to be huge. Look out Hogwarts, Chazie Felix was coming.

 

OOC: If you could introduce yourself to Chazie so he knows your name and can address you, that'd be real cool.

Amadeus Titor

Clickedy-clackedy-clickedy-clack.

 

Amadeus dragged his trunk down the train, searching for an open compartment. Each one he passed was either too loud or already full.

 

He would have passed by this compartment too if it were not for the sign on the door. Taking half a moment to decipher the illegible scrawl, Amadeus was left with a perplexed look on his face. Why would anyone offer muggle psychic readings on the Hogwarts Express? Why would anyone so willingly advertise their ignorance?

 

Amadeus shook his head and moved on down the carriage, continuing his search for somewhere to relax for the journey. Then a thought occurred to him and he paused in the middle of the aisle.

 

Why would anyone so willingly advertise their own ignorance?

 

What if the parchment owner - this Chazie person - really did believe in their own prowess? Then they would have probably advertised it as a psychic reading, ignoring the muggle aspect. No...this person obviously thought it some kind of practical joke. Or perhaps, a way to get a carriage to themselves.

 

Doubling back on himself, Amadeus knocked softly on the compartment door before entering.

 

"Do you mind if I join you?" The boy tucked his trunk away into the storage overhead before the boy could say no. "You can do as many psychic readings as you want. It'll help you practice....your natural gift"

 

"I'll even make it easy for you by giving you my name." He said as he reached over the table to shake the boy's hand. "Amadeus Titor, pleased to meet you."

When Chazie realized there was a knock at the compartment door, he almost fell out of the seat. As much as Chazie liked to think people would be as interested in Muggle Psychic readings, he secretly doubted anybody would show up. Chazie was kind of use to being the only one interested in something odd. He read a word once in a muggle dictionary called, 'Hipster'. Chazie figured if he was a muggle, he'd definitely be a hipster, whatever that may be.

 

A young boy walked in, he looked about the same age as himself. Chazie straightened himself in his seat, getting ready for his first ever psychic reading. But then, it seemed as if the boy who just entered the compartment wasn't there for the psychic readings. He threw his trunk up on the loft, not even waiting for Chazie's response whether it was okay or not.

 

"Oh..hi," Chazie said to him softly. Then he heard the boy say something about practicing. This fueled a bit of a fire in Chazie. He wasn't practicing this. He knew how the muggle readings worked just as good as the professionals! Merlin's beard, he basically was a bloody professional! But not wanting to scare the visitor away, Chazie kept quiet and waited for his time to attack.

 

Because Chazie is ever so tactful, he waited until the boy, who he now knew as Amadeus, reaching his hand over the table. Chazie quickly grabbed the hand and not in the friendly handshake way.

 

He whipped the hand around and started to trace the lines on his hand and pretended to stare ever so deeply at his hand. One line he traced went all the way from the tip of Amadeus's pointer finger to the elbow of his arm. While he did this, Chazie made sounds like he was thinking hard.

 

"Hmm..." "Oh....well...I see." "Interesting."

 

Finally, Chazie spoke, "You see this line?" Chazie pointed to an invisible line he swore he saw in the muggle book one time. The wrinkle looked just like it. "This line means you're going to get attacked by an invasion of chocolate frogs. So be careful," he warned him, "And this line," he pointed to a line on Amadeus's nose, "This line means the little garden gnomes in the yard might not like you too much, so I'd avoid them. Unless you want to end up with some you-know-whats you-know-where." Chazie winked as if he knew what he was talking about. Spoiler alert: He didn't.

 

Chazie smiled proudly at his readings. He was sure they were 100% accurate, more or less. He dropped the boy's hand. "By the way, I'm Chazie Felix. Nice to get to know you."

 

At this point Chazie didn't know if he was being overly friendly or down right creepy. Either way, there was no stopping him now.

A short sound escaped Amadeus' lips as he was pulled across the table by his new compartment-mate. If one were transcribing it, it would probably resemble a mixture of 'wah?' and 'nyeh!' The former being a shortening of 'why are you manhandling me?' and the latter being a general sound of discontent. However, the brevity of this utterance hid all intrinsic meaning and Amadeus rested his other hand on the table whilst Chazie did his reading.

 

Amadeus couldn't quite understand what sort of noises the other boy was making. Every so often, between his ramblings about the different types of lines present, he would make a stretched out sound which resembled a Kneazle when it is stroked too hard.

 

Amadeus was beginning to have doubts about his estimates of this boy's intelligence. Perhaps he was really a few knuts short of a sickle and truly believed in his ability to predict the future. Well, Mother had said that it was important to socialise with people his own age. If this is what people his own age believed, then so be it.

 

"Oh really? Chocolate frogs, you say? Could you be more specific about the timing?" Amadeus kept his tone pleasant, as if talking about the weather forecast. He continued, sitting when the boy let go of his hand to poke him on the nose. "It's just that I'd rather not it coincide with a possible garden gnome attack."

 

Amadeus paused for a moment before continuing. "How would muggle techniques be applicable to magical situations, like gnomes and chocolate frogs? Surely that's what the magical Seers are for?"

Amadeus didn't look too pleased as Chazie stole his hand to tell the future and Chazie just thought was down right rude. He was doing this kid a favor, for goodness sake! But Chazie ignored him because he assumed the customer was always right.

 

But to Chazie's pleasure, Amadeus didn't laugh at what Chazie told him. In fact, he acted like it was very normal. Chazie wasn't sure where this boy was from, but if had learned a heard of chocolate frogs could attack him at any moment, he'd be preparing. He supposed this boy had a very interesting home life.

 

"Well," Chazie told him when he asked about the timing, "The lines don't tell me that. Sorry."

 

When Amadeus asked about the muggle and wizard relating question, he was almost stumped. But Chazie Felix not having an answer? That would be once in a blue moon.

 

"Uh," Chazie stuttered slightly, trying to think of something so Amadeus wouldn't call his bluff, "If you're a wizard...You're going to have a wizardly future...as muggles are going to have a muggle-ly future...yeah." Chazie thought that sounded about right. It made sense in his head and he was the one doing the readings anyway.

 

"But I have to say," Chazie said to Amadeus, "You don't seem very worried about this. Do you get attacked by chocolate frogs often?"

 

Depending on the answer to this question, the most interesting boy in the world could have walked into Chazie's compartment.

"Right," he responded, stretching out the vowel in a pretense of understanding. "I see where you're coming from. That makes sense, I guess."

 

The explanation did not, in fact, make sense. It made the very antithesis of sense. If sense were to have a lookalike contest, Chazie's explanation would take home the award for worst try. Yet, it was not worth starting up an argument on this. Amadeus rationalised that if this was the calibre of First Year mind that he could come to expect, then he'd have absolutely no problem with classes this year.

 

Amadeus scooted himself over to the window and glanced out, not really taking in the view but the glass' faint reflection of Chazie. "I can't say that I'm unsurprised, all things considered."

 

"My parents were never really that pleased with my sweet tooth." He spun the yarn thick; his brain thinking up new ideas as each word was formed by his mouth. "When I was about six, they put this spell on me. Rana-something - I don't remember the name. From then on, any confectionery of mine that was animal shaped would start to bite me. I couldn't even open a packet of Sugar Mice without ending up covered in tiny bites. Eventually, I just stopped eating sweets altogether."

 

Amadeus kept his face solemn but internally smirked. If this boy was as daft as he previously made himself out to seem, he would eat it up.

Amadeus didn't sound too convinced, but Chazie didn't care. He knew what he was speaking of was strictly facts. He was half tempted to pull the book from his bag and show the boy everything. But he decided not to waste his time. He could reiterate what was in the book perfectly.

 

He started to become aware that Amadeus wasn't believing what he said, or didn't think he was that bright all because of the psychic readings. Chazie realized this when he started to tell a story about his sweet tooth and a spell. Chazie knew this was a false made up story and Chazie was not going to delay on calling him out on it.

 

Chazie wasn't stupid. He took what he learned from books very literally and could memorize the words from a book very quickly. It was often a downfall when he read a book about muggle psychic readings written by a wizard. Obviously the information wasn't going to be very accurate. But if he read a book about something useful- like wizarding laws. It often times came in handy.

 

"Actually," Chazie started, "I highly doubt they did do that, unless they're in prison right now, or a snapped wand." Chazie paused before going on, "You see, I read a book one time all about using magic in a home because it's confusing, you know. If there was no laws on what kind of spells you could use, there'd be havoc. There's not many restrictions, but there are a few. And one of them is putting spells on your children. It's considered child abuse to most ministry members. I can you lend you the book if you want."

 

"Plus," Chazie added, "I'm not familiar with any spells that begin with rana that deal with food. Rana is actually a genus of frog, but I guess that does fit in with the chocolate frogs, now doesn't it?" Chazie smiled proudly at the knowledge he spread out for Amadeus. He really wasn't stupid, maybe naive sometimes, but not stupid.

 

He was gullible when it came to books, because it hadn't yet learned that everything you read isn't true, so it didn't stop Chazie from telling everybody and anybody when he learned something no matter how ridiculous it sounded.

 

"Sorry," Chazie suddenly realized how long he had been rambling, "I didn't mean to go for so long. Sometimes I get carried away."

"Well," thought Amadeus. "He's not half as daft as I thought he was."

 

The way in which Chazie's brow furrowed as he expertly cut through the dung of lent credibility to the notion that he wasn't as thick as Amadeus had previously assumed. Fact after fact after fact. Cold hard logic - it was wonderful to see. It could have been the smile plastered across Chazie's face or maybe just the fact that Amadeus had found someone who appeared to be quite clever from his age group. The result was the same, however: he began to chuckle.

 

"I didn't know how long I'd have been able to keep that going," he laughed, wiping the tears from his eyes. "It's just that I wanted to be able to one-up your 'muggle-ey - wizardly' bit and this seemed like the funniest thing to go with. I mean, there's no way I could have topped that whole psychic reading joke, though!"

 

"I guess I'll pass on the law book," he continued chuckling, filling the cabin with mirth. Internally, his flood of positive emotion was ebbing away to make room for more rational thought. What if the boy really did think that his psychic reading bit was factual? Would this mean that he'd be mad at Amadeus for laughing at him?

 

Perhaps now would be a perfect time to gauge this boy more accurately. "But I would be interested to know what other kinds of books you've got."

It delighted Chazie that Amadeus seemed impressed with the amount of knowledge he could spin out on a moment notice. It also made him happy that Amadeus seemed as if he knew a fair amount of knowledge too.

 

Amadeus started to laugh, which made Chazie laugh. The boys laughed for a bit before Amadeus finally broke the chain of laughter with words. But with those words, the smile was taken off of Chazie's face.

 

"Oh..." he was slightly taken back by Amadeus calling his Psychic Readings a joke, "It wasn't a joke though." Chazie stood up and since he was only 11, he had to stand on the train seats to reach his trunk. He rummaged through it for a bit before finding the book. "See," he sat back down with Amadeus, "I read this book last night. It's all about muggle psychic readings. It was very interesting, presuming that's actually how muggle readings work." Chazie opened the book and quickly flipped through the pages, "Although, it might not be, I guess. I mean, what does a wizard know how psychic wizards anyway? I guess I should learnt to think more about what I read," Chazie admitted thinking more hardly about the subject.

 

"But they're still fun, I guess," Chazie shrugged, closing the book. He was sort of greatful for Amadeus helping him realize this, if he hadn't- Chazie might have been going around the Hogwarts hall making a fool of himself.

 

"But these aren't the only books I read," He indicated the muggle Psychic book before putting it down on the seat beside him, "I have loads in my trunk, besides the spell books required for first years. I got some Quidditch books, History of Wands books, Dueling books, then I have some fictional books I read sometimes too," He worried that he was maybe coming across as a book nerd, "I have a lot of spare time back at home." He said the last part sheepishly.

 

Chazie sat awkwardly staring at the boy for a bit, not sure if he was thinking he was a complete loser now. He dug his hands into his pocket, which he often did when he was noticed and touched the Spindle's Lick'O'Rish Spiders his mom gave him to take on the train.

 

"Here," he pulled out the bag of spiders and gave Amadeus one, "Just try not to get bit. I hear a spider bit is worse than a mouse bite," Chazie winked.

When reviewing and analysing this situation, Amadeus would be able to quite clearly recall the point at which his ill-thought-out words caused a less than brilliant response. Chazie's face fell, seemingly quite hurt by Amadeus' laughter. Amadeus thought quickly and attempted to run damage control on putting his foot in his mouth but this was halted by Chazie's rummaging.

 

"I apologi-"As the boy sat down with a book in hand, Amadeus couldn't help but glance at the pages being flicked through. His mind began to work overdrive, trying to relate the pictures that he could see in the pages that Chazie stopped on to the information his brain already had stored on the topic of psychic reading. Unfortunately, that particular resource was quite empty - merely a mental signpost that read 'See: Skepticism.'

 

"Undoubtedly. I sometimes like to read muggle books on magic for fun." He smiled with the recollection of some of the wilder theories that muggles had on Stonehenge and wandcrafting. To be fair, he didn't know how wands were crafted but he knew that it didn't involve the dew from daffodil petals or the hair off an older relative's back. He didn't even have an older relative with back hair, now that he thought about it. Well, really...it was more that he never asked about it. How would somebody go around bringing that up in conversation, anyway? Chances are, it wouldn't be a pleasant chat. He was snapped out of his reverie by Chazie's listing of all the books he had with him.

 

"Wait, did you say History of Wands?" His smile slowly crept up to cover the upper portion of his face. "That sounds wicked awesome! You should get that out."

 

"Thanks!" Spider in his mouth, Amadeus quickly jumped up to open his trunk and began to remove a few of his thicker tomes. "If you like, we can book swap for the journey. These ones are really interesting." He let a pair drop to the table with a heavy thump, the top one opening to reveal its title - 'Language of Magic'. "I really like the dueling one - 'Vectors of Battle'. It's sort of about how angles are important when you're casting certain types of spells. It can get a bit arithmancy heavy in some bits but my mother usually helps explain that stuff to me."

 

"Feel free to take a look at the other one too." He plopped himself back onto his seat and happily nibbled the legs off of the spider, speaking between gulps. "It's all about how different languages can affect the magic you can cast. Which is really interesting because it makes you think that the words that we use for our spells might do the exact same thing as spells in other languages. Does that mean that the spells themselves don't really mean anything and are just a way to- sorry, I'm rambling. I'll stop."

Aara was very bored.

 

She had spent time with friends. Some time wandering the corridors. Some time at the snack cart loading up on chocolate frogs. And now was spending a brief moment reading a very curious sign on a compartment door: Free Muggle Psychic Readings. Muggles had psychic powers? Since when? Raising an eyebrow at the sign, Aara took a bite of her chocolate frog. She highly doubted muggles could do anything of the sort, but...

 

“Why not?” Curiosity peaked, she shrugged to herself. There had to be at least another hour left before reaching Hogwarts. What did she have to loose beyond a few brain cells? She had more than enough to spare a few.

 

Pushing open the compartment door, Aara observed two first years. She was not much taller than them, and could have easily been mistaken for a first year herself – particularly as she had not changed into her school robes yet. “Hello there, I hope I'm not intruding...” She said, as the boys looked deep in conversation. Not that she would have necessarily cared if she had intruded.

 

“I'm here for my psychic reading,” she proclaimed, and took a seat, looking expectantly between the boys.

Apparently, running down the corridors of the train wasn't permitted. Something about it being dangerous and irresponsible, something ridiculous like that. After getting chewed out - twice - Jax had resigned himself to a leisurely walk, hands in his pockets and looking out the window as he walked.

He wasn't paying enough attention at first to really notice the sign when he strolled by, but the fact that there was a piece of parchment stuck to one of the doors was enough to make him backpedal slowly, stopping once he was in front of the sign. "Muggle Psychic Readings?" he muttered, arching an eyebrow skeptically. Why would anyone do Muggle psychic readings ... on a train to Hogwarts ...? That was bold. To put it kindly.

He stood there for several minutes, pondering the implications of that sign. Did he really want a Muggle psychic reading?

Not especially.

He'd had experience with Seers - or rather, people who fancied themselves Seers - and hadn't been especially impressed. There was no reason that he should go in the compartment - he doubted this Chazie kid wanted to deal with skeptics. Then again, he had put the sign up. Putting a sign up with the words 'Muggle' and 'Psychic' was kind of just asking for it.

He put a hand on the door and pushed it open, drumming his fingers on the parchment sign and surveying the people that were already in there - two boys and a girl. He clicked his tongue and leaned against the doorframe, crossing his arms over his chest and surveying the room. For a few seconds, he didn't say anything but when his eyes fell onto the books his interest piqued intensely and he tipped his head at the table. "Vectors of Battle," he sad approvingly. "Excellent read."

Shifting his weight from one foot to the other, he tapped a finger on the sign on the door, smirking slightly. "T'sup, I'm Jax. Muggle psychic readings, eh?"

Sitting next to Chazie and directly opposite him, the girl's eyes flitted between Amadeus and the boy. His smile had not faltered since they had broken out into raucous laughter and this girl's entrance did not change that.

 

"That's his expertise," he pointed at Chazie before turning to look out of the window. The train was passing through a tunnel and this made the glass temporarily more of a mirror. Amadeus took in his reflection. Was he really smiling like such a buffoon? It was starting to become a noticeable strain on his facial muscles and he wanted to drop it. The fact that a new person appeared in the reflection behind him dispelled that notion. Turning, he greeted the newcomer.

 

"It's a long read," he patted the seat next to him with a smile. In a moment, he was mentally reeling from the action. He had been very quick to invite this person to join him without so much as an inkling as to who he was. For all he knew, the boy could have absolutely no idea about the book and merely commented on the title in a positive way to gain his favour. It's what he would do in that kind of situation.

 

"Just like father says: I'm not a cynic. I am a realist."

 

"It can be pretty boring stuff," Amadeus turned the book towards the boy and scratched the back of his head in a slow, deliberate manner. He wondered if the boy would be dissuaded. "Especially when it gets to the parts on spell aerodynamics and the teardrop airflow stuff. It's not nearly half as good as Chazie's psychic reading. He was able to tell me things that I thought nobody else knew!"

 

"Though, where are my manners?" He still had no idea of their names. "I'm Amadeus and this, as you might have deduced, is Chazie."

"Woah!" Chazie exclaimed at the book Amadeus had put on the table, "You'll have to let me borrow that someday. It's probably a lot more accurate than my Psychic Readings," Chazie rubbed the back of his neck sheepishly, suddenly a bit embarrassed about the scene he had tried to put on.

 

But then a girl broke the almost awkward silence as she walked in demanding a psychic reading. Chazie was a bit disappointed, he was very much enjoying the conversation him and Amadeus had gotten into on books, he forgot that he even had the sign still on the front of the compartment. But this girl looked older and Chazie really did want to impress the older kids. He didn't want to fall flat in front of a girl who was already at Hogwarts.

 

"Well, I guess I could give it a sho-" He was cut off by another unannounced entrance. He was silent, but then noticed the book Chazie and Amadeus had been discussing. He seemed equally interested. The new boy also seemed interested in the psychic readings. It was odd to Chazie that his compartment had suddenly gotten popular.

 

Chazie wasn't sure if he should go ahead with the readings, now that he realized that they were pretty much a joke and inaccurate. He went back and forth in his head and was grateful that Amadeus had done all the talking when they first entered. But it seemed as if he was egging Chazie on to give them a show.

 

Oh, what the heck, Chazie thought. He did put the sign on the door intending to give readings, it'd be false advertisement if he didn't now.

 

Chazie first grabbed the girl's hand and started to stare at it, "Well, well, well," he said as if he saw something, "It looks like you should be careful walking down the hallways this year. Do you have any enemies? It looks like somebody is going to curse a bag of gummy mice and set them free on you. I'd watch out," Chazie warned.

 

Then he turned to the boy, but instead of grabbing his hand, he wanted to try something else. The boy was still leaning on the door frame and Chazie got up and onto his knees to examine his feet. "Hmm," Chazie said as he examined the boy's left shoe. He stood up and looked at the boy.

 

"Well, in potions this year you're going to make a potion that turns all the viles into living objects. They're going to be mad that you woke them up and try and attack you. But I think the potion professor can help," Chazie mumbled the next part, "I hope so at least."

Aara Aydelston

Aara resisted the urge to pout as another boy entered the compartment immediately after her. Not only was she now out numbered by boys three-to-one, her personal psychic reading would no longer be the center of attention! Psh. What kind of a name was Jax anyway? Aara believed names could be telling of a person's character. Chazie? Probably good-natured if not a bit bumbling. Amadeus? Good strong name with a lot of potential. Jax? Sounded like a good-for-nothing who had to steal the attention wherever he went...

 

Not that Aara was one to judge...

 

“Oh, I'm Aara,” she gave everyone a warm smile, even Jax. “And is that so,” she looked to Chazie after Amadeus gave him such hearty praise, “what can you say about me then?”

 

Chazie studied her hand intently. “Enemies? I shouldn't..” At his final declaration, Aara blinked once, then laughed, thoroughly amused. “Well if that's the worst you can see, I think I can handle it!” She paused, then grinned mischievously, “Though who ever it is will probably wish they hadn't.” She would jinx anyone who was foolish enough to attack her into next week. Her Slytherin pride would demand vengeance and retribution.

 

As Chazie turned his attention to Jax, Aara could not resist commenting, "I had no idea muggles were such experts at footwear divination..." Was the skepticism audible in her voice? Probably.

Still leaning against the doorframe, Jax nodded at the boy who had turned the large book toward him. "A bit boring, yes. But when it draws parallels to certain techniques actually used in battle, it gets a lot more interesting since it has some 'real-world' worth."

Aara's reaction to her 'psychic reading' made him raise his eyebrows a little bit - at first glance she didn't seem like the vengeful type - in fact, she'd seemed relatively nice when she had introduced herself - but there was something about the way she added onto her statement made him highly suspect. Hm. Regardless...

Suddenly it was his turn for his psychic reading, and Chazie was examining his shoes. Jax raised his eyebrows skeptically. Strange. Aara seemed to think so too, judging by her tone and practically echoing what was going through Jax's mind. The boy didn't move, just raised his eyebrows and listened to what Chazie was saying about his ... future.

"All that from my shoes, eh? Interesting." He moved across the compartment, sitting down on the seat that Amadeus had gestured to and crossed his arms over his chest. It was obvious that he didn't really believe any of it - if something actually happened this year, perhaps then he'd drop his skepticism. "So," he said, a small smirk appearing on his face. "Is this the beginning of a long career in divination?"

Amadeus propped his smiling head up on his hand whilst he watched the scene unfold. Multiple things had to be taken into account as the social interaction continued: the verbal responses of the newcomers to the pair that had been there initially, the body language accompanying these responses and how they interacted with one another - to name only a few.

 

It was rather difficult to do so without staring at each member of the compartment, so Amadeus settled on having his eyes dart over the book whilst he took in as much as he could from the periphery of his vision. For instance, the girl - Aara - had laughed in what seemed to be a sincere way. Smile extended all the way up to her ears and eyes crinkled in a way that exuded amusement. Amadeus was only half paying attention to the words that she was saying, for he was too busy deciphering another language. The spectrum of emotions on her face seemed to transition in a logical manner - amused to happy to slightly more focused smiling. Sincere or not, it was fluid and Amadeus needed to be able to do fluid.

 

He was so busy focusing on her that he missed Chazie's jump to the boy - Jax was it? Thankfully, this boy was far simpler. The only thing that Amadeus had to decipher was the seemingly arrhythmic movement of his eyebrows in response to Chazie's psychic reading - which for some reason now had the boy groping at Jax's shoe.

 

He noticed the way in which Jax responded to Aara's quip on the validity of the reading. No overt change - perhaps agreement? So it seemed that everyone in the compartment had quite a high level of skepticism when it came to Divination.

 

Lovely.

 

"There's not enough salt in the world for me to take to believe in Divination. Muggle or otherwise." Amadeus leant back as Jax joined him. "Chazie here had the very wise idea of having this sign up in order to assess those who entered the compartment. Consider it an intelligence test."

 

He motioned the seat opposite Jax, inviting to the girl to join them. "Chazie and I just discovered we share a mutual interest in literature. What sort of stuff interests the pair of you?"

DEVON WAS RUNNING! 8DDD He knew he shouldn't be running, though, so any time TALL PEOPLE were around, he skidded awkwardly to a stop and stared up at them, terrified. And then WALKED REALLY FAST. BUT DID NOT RUN. D: ...until he got excited. Usually a few moments later. AND THE HE WAS RUNNING! 8D AGAIN!

 

And then, finally...HE SAW IT! Devon stared, gaping a moment. AND THEN HE TOOK OFF!

 

"WAAAAIIIIIIIIITT!!" he cried loudly, running down the hall again. He saw his target disappear into a compartment...BUT THEN A SHINY BADGE PERSON STOPPED HIM TO SCOLD HIM ABOUT YELLING. D: Why did they scold him THIS TIME? Was it because he hadn't stopped and stared at them enough? D:

 

"I'M SORRY! I WILL NEVER DO IT AGAIN! D8' Usually, Devon didn't lie...he was sincere in what he said, though. Even if he wouldn't possibly be following through. At least, until he remembered why he'd been running. "AS SOON AS I FIND IT ALL!" he corrected back over his shoulder, running down the corridor! He BURST into the compartment that he was SO SURE HAD WHAT HE WANTED...only to find just a bunch of other kids! D:

 

"NOOOO! WHERE DID THE CANDY LADY GO?! DDD8" He begged them. "I wanted that!" He explained, mouth open in a pouty-face like this: D:

 

"I'LL KEEP LOOKING!" he insisted, standing fully back up from where he'd sunk almost to the floor and burst out of the compartment. A moment later, he stuck his head back in. "HI I'M DEVON!" he said.

 

But only to be polite.

 

DEVON EXITS.
