Rose still hadn't made up with her friends, and it was getting frustrating. But it was honestly no surprise if Hayley and Harley were half as busy as she was. The NEWT year was no joke, and with still no definitive idea of what she wanted to do after Hogwarts, Rose was starting to feel the pressure. She was fairly sure she wanted to go into Herbology like her dad, but what if that wasn't her dream after all? She needed other good grades too in case she realized she wanted to do something else. So Rose was trying to study for Potions, trying to remember all the different potions they had learned over the years. She knew that the NEWT exam would cover all years and probably ask for specific ingredients, so she had to memorize it. Rose quizzed herself on the ingredients of the Shrinking Solution, but realized she had forgotten the daisies. With a groan, she put her face down in her book and closed her eyes. She would never learn this all.

Adorah had wanted to read up a little bit more on Astronomy before the next class. She had just finished studying for Potions in the library when she went to search for a book about the constellations. There were plenty of students in the library, but she didn't know any of them. She was still much a loner at Hogwarts and had yet to make any strong bonds with students. Her roommates and she had gotten off to a bad start, and there seemed to be a group of them becoming friends while she awkwardly lived there. She made her way to the section that contained books about the sky and the beyond and looked at the titles. One that was on a shelf just above her reach had a silver binding with bright pink letters. She couldn't read the whole title, but it seemed to be calling to her. She stood on her toes to try and snatch a corner of the book, but no luck. Frustrated, she noticed a student at a nearby table that looked older (and taller) than she was. The student had laid their head in the book, but maybe they'd be willing to help her.

"Excuse me," she whispered to the girl, "could you help me reach a book? I'm too short."

Rose was a bit startled by a whispering voice near her head, and jerked up to see a young girl standing there. Rose blinked, her worries slipping to the back of her mind as the young girl asked for her help. She sat up straight, wishing the girl hadn't found her literally with her face in a book. Rose was a prefect, so definitely able to help younger kids. That was one of the things she liked most about the position. "Of course." She whispered back with a friendly smile. Rose got to her feet, looking at the first year. "What book do you need?"

Adorah pointed to two shelves above her head. "The silver one with the pink letters. I'm not sure what it says because I can't really see it," she whispered. She felt bad for the disrupting the girl, but she just really wanted to read that book. She looked at the book the girl's head had been laying in and skimmed the first couple of words. "Why were you laying your head in your book? Is a magical book that does something when you lay your head in it?" Adorah wouldn't be surprised if there were true, as everything in this magical world didn't seem to make sense.

Rose looked up to where the girl pointed, wondering why she wanted a book without knowing what it was about. But she didn't question it. "Oh, I see it." She said, reaching up to grab it for her. Rose wasn't very tall for her age, but definitely a lot taller than the first year girl. She handed her the book with a smile. The girl's next question made her blush and laugh a little. "Uh, no." She told her. "It's just a difficult book, and I was getting frustrated. I wish it would be magical though." She thought for a moment. "It would be pretty great if you could just put your head on a book and get all the knowledge into your brain automatically."

Adorah took the book from the girl's hands and looked at it. The book was entitled Astronomy and its practicality in your day to day life. It seemed interesting and relevant enough. She tucked it under her arm. "That would be pretty cool!" she stated excitedly. Maybe one day, Adorah would know enough magic to invent something like that. There must already be magic relevant to the subject that could help with the transference of knowledge. "I'm Adorah, by the way. Thank you for helping me get the book. I like to do additional reading between classes." She looked at the book the girl had previously had her head in. "So, what are you reading about?"

Rose smiled as the girl seemed pleased with her book. "Are you interested in Astronomy?" She asked the girl. Her younger sister Diana had an interest in the subject, though she was a few years older than this girl. "It really would be cool. Maybe someone will invent that someday." She said, a little wistfully. Even if someone did, Rose wouldn't be able to use it to study. She was nearly done with Hogwarts. "No problem, Adorah. I'm Rose." She said with a smile. "I'm reading about Potions, I'm trying to memorize some of the recipes from the past years for my NEWTs. At least the ingredients." She said with a small shrug. On the OWL they had asked for ingredients of several potions, and Rose didn't doubt that the NEWT would be the same.

Adorah nodded her head and took a seat at the table the girl had been sitting at. "I really like it! It's so interesting to learn about worlds beyond our own, and I'm curious to learn about the correlation between magic and the stars." Adorah listened as Rose explained what she was studying for and looked down at the book again. Potions hadn't sparked an interest in Adorah yet because they really had only learned about a few ingredients. She wished they would brew their own potions, but as the semester was dwindling down, she was losing hope that this would happen. "We just saw a potion be brewed last class, and Professor Pendleton did it himself. It all seems rather complicated. I wish I could brew one myself." She realized Rose had mentioned something at a newt and wasn't sure what she meant. "Did you say you were learning ingredients for your newt?" She thought sounded a little odd, but maybe it was a magical newt.
