So...Herbology. That was interesting, Star liked herbology herself, she enjoyed being able to get into her work, although some of the finer points always seemed to escape her. Like with potions; she never could really tell when to stop (or start) watering her plants, and for that matter, much dirt they needed, she had a tendency to drown her plants in soil before Professor Sprout came over and noticed what was going on. While she generally saved the Gryffindor girl from killing the plants altogether, it was always a close call.
"Why do you like herbology?" She queried, interested. "I mean, I think it's a very interesting class, but I'm not very good at it."
She shrugged at his next question, "you know, I'm not really sure. It's like you said, some things just come easier to people than others. I never seem to be able to catch the potion at the exact moment it's ready. I always wait a little too long or not long enough, I can never get it to the right shade, I do things in the wrong order," she sighed, "I'm just really not a great shakes at potions."
She nodded thoughtfully, "you're right," which would explain it! She thought to herself, she had always been rubbish at potions back at the orphanage, evven when they'd simply been mixing baking soda and vinegar to make a volcano.
"Actually, that's what fascinates me," she admitted, "I've always wanted to know why that happens."
She remained silent a moment longer until Silus asked how long until they got caught. Star immediately felt guitly, he was right, she hadn't thought about the possibility of them getting in trouble at all. Still, the idea of going inside was not at all interesting.
"We should be all right for a couple more minutes," she said, "I doubt they'd expect students to be out here after a storm."
Thank you .mel for the gorgeous sig ♥
