Leonardo "Leo" Silverstone
Professor Grueshaw's classroom ---> Leo's dorm room
Tome - Henbane
"I‘m sure many of you are good judges of character,” agreed the Professor, “But you are still teenagers, not much trained in magic, so for the time being it would be safest to exercise as much caution as possible. It’s not that no one is trustworthy, it's that finding out who is trustworthy by trial and error may be a grave mistake. Many experienced witches are capable of disguising themselves as the sweet and innocent, and the familiar.”
“As for me trusting the lot of you with these spell books, no magical education would be possible without such an exchange, but rest assured, I do have safeguards in place.”
“Alright, let’s wrap this up,” announced the professor stuffing his book under one arm, “Homework, when you show up tomorrow, I want each of you to have selected one spell you’re going to try this week, okay?”
Leo nodded, then looked to see what Henbane had to say.
Leo smiled. He didn't have all these things in his room, but It just so happened that he had shop class...this afternoon. Where he'd be able to get all the things necessary to make a Tin Star. "Perfect! Thank you!" he said as he took out his Cell Phone, and took a picture of the page with the camera so he wouldn't have to take the book out during class. Then he closed the book, tucked her under his arm, and made his way to his room. Smiling and saying good night to his friend Diego when he bumped into him along the way.Oh boy! Tin Star is a great starting project! I bet you’ll want to get started right away!
Tin Star - Make your very own lucky star! This light luck boosting talisman has little to no Pendulum Effect!
You will need:
A sheet of tin (you can use a flattened can as well, but it may not be as pretty)
Hammer and nail, or small drill
Chain or thread to hang your star from
This is a fairly simple project. First take your metal snips and cut a star from the tin sheet. Make a hole to attach your chain or thread to later using the nail and hammer, or drill. You may pound designs into your star with metal tools is desired. Wrap the edges of your star in copper wire, paint flux onto the copper tape, and melt solder into the copper. Attach you chain or thread and your star is ready to go!
Once Leo got to his room, he undressed and changed into his pajamas, which basically consisted of a pair of red boxers, and nothing else. He often forgets to close the window when he gets dressed, and his room just happened to be across from the girl's dorm, giving any female nearby who happened to have their window open a pretty good view. He didn't realize it was open until after he finished undressing. He went to draw the blinds, not that it mattered all that much now. He figured no one would be up anyway.
Then he went to the shelf where he kept a collection of plushies he brought with him. He had the Teddy bear he's had since he was a kid that he slept with every night, as well as his collection of My Little Pony plushies. He didn't have the complete set yet, so far he only had Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Celestia. He was still missing Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Twilight Sparkle, Luna, the elusive Derpy Hooves, (that particular one was rare, he wasn't sure it even existed) as well as several other characters.
He grabbed the bear, and said goodnight to the ponies. Before going to bed, he walked up to his nightstand, and opened up Henbane one last time. "Hey Henbane, The Professor asked us to pick a Spell to try this week. Will this Tin Star be good enough for that, or is there another one I should try? Also, can you fill up with words to look like a normal book? In case anyone does find this, they won't get suspicious."
After getting the answer, he thanked Henbane, closed the book, hopped into bed, cuddled his bear, then went to sleep.
