Landon tried to keep his first year lessons as simple as possible, hoping to introduce the new students into the magical world and classes as best as he could. The third lesson for them had already approached, and Landon could see that most people were keeping up with everything, and he had definitely noticed which students liked the class and which didn't. The students were giving their pumpkins to the house elves, telling them what they would like their pumpkin to be made into, when he noticed one of the Hufflepuff students holding theirs rather than levitating it into the air like everyone else. He watched her as she passed it to the elves, and as she had turned around to leave, Landon gestured for her to come over, easily remembering her name. "Marylou, if you please!" he exclaimed with a friendly smile, not wanting to potentially scare her away. She hadn't seemed very bright or cheery the past couple of lessons, and so the man wanted to know what was up. "I couldn't help but notice that you didn't attempt to levitate the pumpkin. Of course, it wasn't essential for you to be able to move it, but it would have been nice to join in, right?" Landon hoped that the girl agreed with him. After all, magic was supposed to be fun to the first years and so he found it odd that she didn't attempt to cast the spell. "Would you like to follow me back to my office? Maybe have some afternoon tea with me? It gets lonely sometimes, so I would love for you to come!"
