Mission: New Semester
Location: Care of Magical Creatures Paddock


Jason sat against the fence. The space inside the paddock was sealed over with a bright greenish bubble, and a slight buzzing noise could be from within. As the students arrived, Jason had them line up outside.

Pandora stood with her arms crossed waiting to see what the lesson would be today.

Jen and Fiona stood together near the back to see what the new teacher had in store for them.

Barny finally got there, he looked around for the teacher, but the groundskeeper seemed to be running the show. He looked over at Fiona, only to see her looking away. A part of him curled up inside and he moved up to the front of the class to help Jason with the class.

"You need something?" asked Jason.

"I've been helping the professor with the class." said Barny.

Jason nodded, "I'll have to have you stay after a little then, we'll talk afterwards."

Barny nodded and took a position against the fence aside Professor MacAulay, whom he nodded at.

Pandora kept to herself. What she really wanted was to talk to Ben again. He was a year ahead though so she didn't get the chance to see him in class. She would have to figure out a way to spend some more time with him.

Reginald came walking into view. He passed everyone else and right to Jen. He was in the mood for some mischief after his confrontation with Peter. He stood in front of Jennifer and then leaned down and kissed her passionately and lovingly. He brought his hand to the side of her face and let his thumb gently her cheek. He pulled back from the kiss, breathing out with a smile and then opened his eyes, noticing hers was still closed. "Hi." He said softly and then took his hand away from her cheek and face. "Did I miss anything?"

Jen smiled softly. "No. I don't think you missed anything."

"Only you." Reg smiled and then winked.

Jen crooked her finger for him to come closer and whispered. "Then aim better next time."

"So let me go for a bulls-eye then." Reg crept closer and then leaned forward, kissing her again on the lips. He moved his hands to her waist and brought her in closer.

"Hey, get a room!" someone in the back yelled."

Jennifer broke the kiss and hid her face against Reg's shoulder.

Reg laughed as he put his arm around Jennifer.

Jen turned to face the new teacher, but still stayed close to Reg, leaning against him. She wondered what he had planned for class.

Professor MacAulay stood in the back, watching. She was there to see if this new teacher would work out -- or if they'd once again need to find someone to finish out the year.

Millie was next to turn up with some more Ravenclaws. She leaned against the paddock fence her cloak wrapped tightly around her to keep her warm. She wasn't too fussed about the new teacher, just as long as he or she COULD Teach...

Jason cleared his throat, "I've got a real treat for you lot today, I've managed to make arrangements with the ministry, through my friend Horace here, to bring you something most of you haven't seen before. If you've read any of the histories on Quidditch, you'll know that we didn't always use snitches like the ones used today. Originally, a magical creature was used, the Golden Snidget." Drawing himself up a little to seem more imposing. "We will not be catching these creatures, as they are actually fragile and easily hurt. The fact is that our using them for the game nearly drove them to extinction, and these creatures are protected, so we have to take care of them carefully. Remember, no chasing them and if they come to you, be very careful with them, I wouldn't want to have to snap anyone's wands and send them home a failed wizard." He looked at them all, face stern so as to pass on that he may not be entirely kidding on that score. "The shield will allow you to pass through with resistance, the birds cannot, Sorry, ladies, your hair is likely to get a bit mussed." So saying, he preceded them into the field, to demonstrate how it was done.

Barny took up a spot beside where the new professor had entered, dying to go in, but knowing he should be the last one to enter, only after making sure everyone else had made their way in.

Pandora reached into her pocket and pulled her hair back into a pony tail. Something she often did in potions to keep it out of the way. This way she hoped it didn't get too messy as she moved forward.

Jennifer looked at Reg and smiled before taking his hand and heading in.

Reg held her hand in his following her in. It felt good for him to be able to do this in public now. No worry for whoever was watching.

The buzzing increased as they walked into the bubble. Jennifer looked with awe at the Golden Snidgets flying around her. She squeezed Reg's hand tightly as they watched.

After everyone was inside, the teacher began to tell them about the magical creatures.
