Juniper Blight

Juniper had a love hate relationship with Herbology. She understood the concept of each lesson but could never get it right. Her Assignments always got a top grade but her practical work... not so much.

Professor Bryce allowed Juniper to go into the Greenhouses after lessons so she could practice her spells so she could learn how to get it done correctly. Once her last lesson ended, she headed towards Greenhouse 1 and walked in, not noticing someone was watching her.

She grabbed her plant from her last lesson of Herbology and noticed that it had died off. She sighed before placing it with the others and grabbed a new seed and a pot of soil. The spell she was learning to use was a fast growing charm. Every time she had tried this charm, the seed would grow but then it would either die, shrunk, disintegrated or just didn't grow in general.

Juniper planted the seed, gave it a little water before taking a deep breath, pointed her wand at the pot before speaking softly the spell, focusing on making the see grow.

Suzy came into the greenhouse, peering into the room to see if anyone stayed after on this date. She noticed a student in there, 2nd year Juniper, mid-spell. "What cha doing in here?" She asked from the door. "Thought we were out of class by now!" Traversing through the space, the 5th year took a seat in front of Juniper and her new pot and seed.

"What are you working on right now?" She waited for the student to explain. Since they were in different years, their class material was not the same. "Mind showing me?" She asked. The older teen pulled her wand from her hair and twirled it in her hand. She watched her technique, intently, ready to help.

Would the seed grow? The 5th year watched the pot with the fresh mulch that Professor Bryce had imported and brought into the school. It smelled earthy, and was loosely compact. Suzy looked up to watch Juniper as she casted.

Juniper jumped and clutched her chest where her heart was and glared towards the fifth year "oh my godric! you scared the life out of me". She watched her walk into the greenhouse and sit down in front of her "yes we are but Professor Bryce allows me to come in here to practice my spells for Herbology"

Juniper looks at her suspiciously before sighing "i'm trying to cast a fast growing charm. usually it grows before something horrible happens. or it just won't grow in general". She raised an eyebrow at the fifth year before sighing and holds her wand and points it at the pot.

She hated performing spells in front of people as she gets quite nervous but she pushed through it and gently spoke the spell and watches the plant grow before dying straightaway

"Sorry! Didn't mean to scare you!" The 5th year announced to the frightened 3rd year. She'd come out to the greenhouses for another activity, but decided against it when she heard the third year was lingering in the greenhouse. "Ahh, yeah. I see. She's pretty nice, ain't she, Professor Bryce." The 5th year smiled.

Suzy watched Juniper cast the spell and notice that her hand movement was off. Taking her wand out, she demonstrated the motion to Juniper. "Like this, see." She showed her the movement. "The spell should emit a green light when you cast it correctly." The witch smiled to the 3rd year, "I think you can do it, so try again."

Suzy grabbed the pot with the dying plant in front of Juniper and pulled it out of the soil. She gave Juniper the pot back to replace it with another seed.

Juniper nodded slightly, confused to why this 5th year Ravenclaw was helping her. She ignored it and smiled slightly when she mentioned Professor Bryce "she is really sweet. I always go to her for help, no regrets"

She watched her perform the spell correctly and glared at her slightly, jealous that she was able to do it but shook it off and nodded softly. She sent her a smile but it was fake as she hated watching people do things correctly, especially simple things, that she couldn't do.

She took the point from the Ravenclaw before grabbing another seed and placed it in the pot, within the soil making sure it couldn't be seen through the soil
