Thierry Asheford stepped into his Conjuration class that morning, bleary-eyed and slouching. He definitely was not a morning person. He set his satchel on his desk and sat down, holding his head in his hands. As the professor stepped inside the classroom, Thierry slowly lifted his head, yawning. "Good morning, Professor," he recited along with the rest of class. He glanced over at Samuel, a newer student that he shared a desk with, squinting a bit as the class began. "Did you do the homework?" he asked. "I kinda forgot." He smiled, embarrassed. He tried to pretend like he was searching his bag for his homework, but then the professor walked by. "Forgot to do your homework again, Mr. Asheford?" Professor Ling asked with a tone that suggested she already knew the answer. "U-uh...yes, Professor," Thierry said, ducking his head. "Sorry." "I am very disappointed in you, Mr. Asheford. That's the fourth time this week. Detention, after school. And you will not disappoint me again." Thierry nodded, then pulled out his notebook and pen. As the professor continued to check the other students' homework, Thierry ran his fingers through his hair. He didn't like being called out in front of the rest of the class. Once the professor finished checking the homework, she finally started to teach, telling everyone that they were going to be conjuring familiars that day. Thierry took out his textbook and turned to the page that the professor directed, which had instructions on how to conjure a familiar. "Seems simple enough, huh?" he asked Samuel, smiling a bit.
