"Let's get straight to this today, as I want to make sure we're careful and have enough time to harvest all the pus." Professor Carter was very excited to see how well the students would go today and was eager to start his lesson. On the tables at the front were buckets filled with vial. "Now; gloves, goggles, work aprons, buckets and follow me." He put on his gear and went with them to the still silvery grounds of Bubotubers.

"Watch me carefully. You would have done this in potions, but for those who haven't, I am going to show you." Landon held up one of the bottles from his bucket to the plant. It wriggled slightly as he put the bottle close to the boils and carefully squeezed each one. When they burst, it sprayed the yellow-green pus into the bottle. "If you hold your bottle like this," He showed them how to hold it at an angle over the boils, "you won't get a nasty splash back in your face. Now fill each bottle up and you'll be done for the day."

Landon motioned for them to get started before beginning to walk around and watch their progress to be there for any questions. Once they were all done, he had them lug their heavy buckets into the greenhouse and place them carefully into the large trough basin in the corner, by the sink. "You did well today! Go grab something to eat and I'll see you next lesson. Class dismissed."

Aonghas came in from the quidditch pitch, he had taken to flying as often as he could, it was just a nicer way to be able to start the day. He found his mind clearer and his ability to concentrate stronger. He just wanted to do nothing more than to just let himself fly for all of the day, but he couldn’t, even if the days were getting warmer and warmer. Aonghas had to do well in his classes, well, he wanted to do well in his classes, even if flying around the quidditch pitch was the more agreeable thing he had to do. The hufflepuff took a long shower, washing away the quidditch practice. He took the time to get himself dressed, putting on his uniform, getting his tie nice and straight before moving on to his school things, he gathered up the different bits and pieces he needed for the day, gathering up the homework, the books, his various notes and placing them inside his bag, he was going slowly, just gathering everything that he would need for the day and then with a last check that he had everything he headed out of the dorm to the class.
Aonghas walked into the herbology green house and took his usual spot in the class. He knew what they would be doing during this lesson, but it didn’t make him want to do it any more. Especially as he would never ever need to do this again, the advantage perhaps of being head of a family was that gross things like collecting pus would never be something he had to do. He put on the gloves, work apron and goggles, he grabbed the bucket and followed the professor to where the bubotubers were. He watched the professor carefully as the man began showing them what exactly they were to do, how they were supposed to do it. Then once he’d shown them they had been able to just get started. He frowned but got to work, being exceedingly slow to ensure that he had no splash back, that he didn’t see any of it in his face. He continued to work, collecting the pus until he had filled his bucket, then and only then was he able to pack up his things and head out of the greenhouse. He washed his hands thoroughly afterwards.

Between the upcoming Quidditch game and things with Lars, Elliot was a bundle of nerves all week. It didn't help that he really wasn't looking forward to their lesson today in Herbology, dragging his feet as much as he dared on his way down to the greenhouses. Professor Carter wasted no time getting them started and Elliot just miserably grabbed his things to head out to the bubotubers. The demonstration turned Elliot's stomach a bit, but he still tried to watch closely, noting the angle of the vial especially. He could handle watching some gross pus if it meant he wasn't going to get covered in it himself.

When it was their turn, Elliot took his time putting his gloves and goggles on, still dreading the actual task of collecting any pus. Finally, when he couldn't put it off any longer, Elliot kneeled down next to his bubotuber, whispering fervently to it "Please don't spray me," under his breath as he squeezed the first pustule. The release of pus was gross, and Elliot gagged a little at the sensation through the gloves, but he managed not to get it everywhere, for which he was grateful. Moving methodically, Elliot was able to mostly zone out for the rest of the lesson, relieved when his bucket was full without him noticing much time had passed beyond the first few vials. He lugged his bucket back to the greenhouse and eagerly made his escape as soon as everything was cleaned up.

The objective of the lesson couldn't have been clearer and that was obvious going into the Greenhouse as Professor Carter wasted little time getting them up to speed, they quickly got geared up and followed the man outside to where the Bubotubers were waiting for them. Christian watched closely as Professor Carter demonstrated how to harvest the puss, the last thing he wanted was to get that nasty stuff all over him. Once the professor had completed his demonstration Christian gathered a collection of vials and got to work harvesting and filling up the vials with puss. After he had filled several of them and felt he had a good handle on what to do overall he handed the vials back to Professor Carter. Once the lesson was over Christian grabbed his bag and made his way back up to the classroom.
