Angus gave Thalle a look and shrugged. "Who doesn't like slides?" he seemed to be saying as he took the slide down to his common room.
As the girls took out their books to study, Angus got a large kettle of tea on one of many small portable magical stoves and set it down in front of them, together with a few mugs from obvious different tea sets.
"More tea." he announced. "Earl Grey with a hint of lemon, please." he said to the kettle, as he tapped the lid with his oak wand. "Let's hope I got it right this time." he said seriously.
"Get settled in. I'll get my stuff as well." and he disappeared through an archway leading to the dormitories.
As Gwen and Tiva settled in, another girl entered by the stairs. She made her way to the kettles as well, when she noticed the Ravenclaws. She pushed her glasses on her nose and hesitantly made her way towards the girls. "Congratulations." she said, her grey eyes seemed to look at a point slightly above their forehead. "It was rather cold, wouldn't you agree? It took so long! And I had forgotten to pack some lunch too! If it hadn't been for the six hour rule, I would have either frozen or starved to death. Are you going to be studying here?" She awkwardly started a conversation while plucking some hair and dust from her house's couch and guests.
"Oh hi, Thalle. Is this your sister?" the fourth year girl asked Thalle. He recognised her from his year as Priscilla Mudbanks. Apparently, she was trying to be social with their guests.
Larch with Pheonix Feather core, 13 3/4 inches, surprisingly swishy.
