Bobby had sort of expected that he'd be pretty much the only one here, though getting a bit more practice in Herbology was never a bad thing.
He wasn't altogether thrilled about having one of the Yaxley twins here - he could never quite tell them apart, was always afraid of offending both of them by not getting the name right, and he always had the impression that they somehow looked down on him for not being from a wealthy wizarding family. Though there was nothing he could specifically point to about that, it was just a feeling. Airs and graces sort of thing.
"Bobby... Bobby Cashmore, and yes, I'm in Ravenclaw." He slid the gloves on, and took up the shears.
The dittany looked quite formidable, but he wasn't worried with the gloves on. He was, truth be told, slightly more concerned at how his plant partner was snapping the shears at the plant.
So he took a different part of the plant, with its own leaves and fronds and things, and tried to follow the instructions - three sections down, the professor had said, but it all looked pretty smooth to him and not really clear as to which were the sections or not.
Not wanting to bother the professor for something he thought he ought to know, he turned to Ophi, gestured to where he thought he should cut, and asked, "Does this look about right to you?"
