The first day of the first month upon the first school year was like always filled to the brim with excitment. Many students came from everywhere around and both new and old was walking here and there to go to their assigned locations.The new students would head mostly to a single class room except some induvidual cases, and most older students would head to the other classrooms like usual. There weren't really any grand welcomes, more like smaller ones where the students needing help quickly got pointed in the right direction. And the stream of students would continue to flow until the once filled school ground would run emty once more and everyone would have come inside like they should. ~~~~ Freya Like the other teachers of the school she had begun early today in preparation for the new students and she had been spending the whole morning going through lists and routines that needed to be followed on a day such as this. Then as the first batch of students had arrived she had started welcoming them and showing them in the right direction before a bit later leaving for her own classroom. Now standing there in front of everyone she waited for the seats to fill up before going behind the class to close the door as everyone had entered. Then she went back infront and smiled to them all "Hello everyone, My name is Freya Stormsmith and I would like to personally welcome each one of you to your first year at spellbourne academy. I know that your probably all excited to get started here, and I'm happy to inform you that I'm actually your Magic teacher. " she said as she took a walk down the center of the class room just to see all of the new faces that she would be teaching, she also made a headcount of the students to see if anyone was missing. "Well I'm not going to bore you out too much with a long lecture today as its your first day... instead I'm going to go through the security routines and then the class will begin" she said as she walked back to infront of the class. She didn't waste much time writing on the black board, instead she unfolded a sheet that blocked view of its side to reveal the text beneath it. Beneath it stood the rules that she was going to walk the class through, -1: "Okay rule number one... Never aim harmful magic towards any person or creature either inside or outside school grounds without clear instructions, and approval of a magic teacher. " -2: "Second rule... Stay inside school grounds at all times during school hours and do not walk any further than to the lake or forest in the back." 3: "Third rule... Only use school issued material inside the school grounds, your not allowed to bring in own books or magical items without the permission from the school staff. "That's all for now... any questions?... " she asked before continuing. - Q: A: - Questions done she began wiith the lecture. "Okay... Mana, is the mystical energy that exist all around us at all times. Mana while in its purest have no bound form or shape and flows freely from one place to another like a river. Mana exist within everything, living or inmate objects alike and its through the power of mana that we are all alive." she started and looked around the class as she circled around the class room to make sure everyone paid attention and could hear her. She smiled a bit extra to her sister knowing that she among all probably had heard this lecture a few times already. "The full power of Mana and its limitations are not today known, but it's believed that on its own it only continue evolution at a slow pace. Yet its natural power can be harnessed by anyone who is 'Mana sensitive' or Magically capable so to speak. This is done by the 'art of Channeling' and yes that will be on the test." she said as she sat down on the teachers desk and not on the chair behind it. She took a few breaths before continuing "The Art of channeling, is when someone tap into their surroundings and direct the flow of mana to form or flow in a specific direction or shape. All of you have experienced this during your tests... And that's what were going to focus on today... I want full silence... and that all of you close your eyes now. Then just focus on your breathing... listen to the sounds of yourself and other breathing.... hear your own heartbeats... then, feel how everything around you flow freely, its warm... its cold... wet,dry... yes its all... everything... yet without shape or form... that is mana. When you feel ready cup your hands on yourr desk... then whisper the words... Tide of fate thy river whom flow, force without hate that's changing so slow. Fill my hands, with liquid set... to quench my thirst with your water's wet... Aqua" Freya said filling her cupped hands with nice clean water that would slowly drizzle out on the desk. ~~~~ Suzy Suzy while being a new student didn't find it difficult to find the classroom that she had been assigned too, in fact she could possibly find it in her sleep seeing as she already had been here several times due to her big sister working here. Thus in experience Suzy felt rather comfortable in this school even as a student due to knowing so much about it already, she actually knew a few secrets too that her sister had shared with her. Yet today instead of exploring around and waiting for her Sister to finish class or something, Suzy was one of the students and was actually in the classroom herself. She was sitting in the middle row out of five furthest to the right near ther windows so that she could see inside. It was a rather tactical location for her as even while she had students both infront and behind her she wouldn't have any students to one side of her. But sitting to the furthest back or front was not an option as it was obviously geeky to be in front, and kinda a trouble student thing to be furthest in the back. Compared to many Suzy felt rather prepared to the point where she had spare clothes in her locker in case of accidents, not meaning that she would do them herself hopefully but you never knew when people waved wands around what would happen. Suzy sat there trying to look a mixture of interested and disinterested as to not show too much of either. During the class she sat silent yet wiggled her legs slightly from the rather tall chair as she watched her sister stand in front of the class. Obviously she knew that she was the one that was going to teach her something she actually felt rather happy about as she liked her sister really much even if they didn't always agree on everything. Watching with a smile as she saw her sister walk around the class room and telling them about the rules and stuff. Yet she refrained from asking any questions as she couldn't come up with any and instead let the show go on or so to say. Once it was time to cast their very first spell and they were allowed to actually channel mana Suzy was thrilled. She quickly got ready and shut her eyes cupping her hands way before her sister told them too just to get an early 'edge' on everyone else as she tried to find 'just the right thing' before everyone else. Then as her sister told them to chant she nodded to herself mostly. "Liquid flow whom in moonlight glow, from the clouds you rain and in the ground cause pain. Aid me now but cause no rubble, and grant upon me an liquid bubble... Aqua Bullirie" Suzy chanted and then formed a bubble of water in her cupped hands that unlike the water her sister had made didn't drizzle out on the desk.
