"Hmph," she opened up the textbook, filtering to the page 200. In front of her was a separate parchment with the assignment details. Professor McGonagall, the Transfiguration professor, paired second year students, with first, to complete a project for class. Students were required to write an essay on the use of transfiguration changing inanimate objects to animals. The paper required five sources on it's practical uses, with a practicum component where the partners have to demonstrate in front of the class.
Ophelia looked up from the textbook and glared at the student sitting across from her. For whatever reason, the snotty-eyed booger filled butt-faced Ravenclaw met her gaze. Oh! She just wanted to give him the biggest wet-willy in the world. Looking down at the parchment next to the book, she picked it up before reading out the instructions of the paper, "Find five sources on the practical use of changing inanimate objects into small animals. Three sources should reflect on the practical uses of the spells. Two sources should detail it's Transfiguration use by; Helena Emerson, Lucas Keegan, Jonathan O'Naugghten (choose one). Decide and practice a practical use to demonstrate for midterm exams with your assigned partner." She read the instructions in her posh accent, and looked over at Art to see if he'd react to her reading.
She put the paper down. "We need to divide the work." Looking up at her classmate, she flashed him a winning smile. It was lucky he couldn't hear her thoughts, her languishing at the fact that she needed to share a space with him.
In class she'd tried to reject the assignment with him, but their Professor insisted, gently, that reassignments were not allowed. So, she was stuck working with him, and she wondered if the Professor was aware of the torture she'd set on her soul with this arrangement. So she waited to see if he was in agreement of dividing up the research for the project. The worst part, she suspected, would be practicing with him. Ugh.
