When the word friend and Sarah were put in the same sentence Devin couldn't help but start to laugh. "I think someone said something along the lines of her being a force of nature actually. It has been widely believed that if she wanted she could be nice, but the right situation hasn't come up." As Devin talked it was clear her was not being serious. More like a playful quip conversation than anything else. Still there was no shortness of history between Devin and Sarah. A rivalry was the best way to mark it and it had been so since the first day they came to school. A series of events and a few bad timings had made what had once been a pretty healthy little competition had started to turn ugly and as such Devin had started to try and avoid it.
"Anyway it isn't something we need to get into. What we do need to talk about is how you are going to get to your first class." Devin said. He had looked up at the board and saw that Liv had been assigned to the Fire group living quarters. He let out a heavy sigh and couldn't help, but suspect that things could get a little messy. Still it was involving someone out of the whole thing so the fire group should understand that. At least Devin hoped they did. "Well the fire area is nice in the winter so you don't have to worry about being cold. Still they are kind of far away from the classrooms so we will have to find someone around there that can help you map out your morning route. Shouldn't be too difficult." Continuing to look along the line with her name on it Devin cracked a smile and saw a fun fact. "Looks like we are also teaching a class together. Application of Magic 3/4th year."
Devin wasn't sure if the transfer know what that meant, but he remembered it being in the information packets sent to everyone before classes. Liv looked smart enough to have gotten it and read though so he just continued on his way with talking about other things. "So if I remember Hogwarts is broken into four houses or something like that. I guess you could say we have a similar system; however, there isn't actually any sort of sorting. Remember how I said to tell people you are already recruited? Well that means one of the groups has convinced you to join their group. Here we have Fire, Water, Earth, Sky, and Wood. You tend to see similar personalities go to the same groups, but that said it is completely up to you where you end up. Being a seventh year is pretty big since it means you vote for all major student body issues." Devin stopped
"Already seeing who you can hook this year Devin?" A woman's voice shouted. A few people around the chart went silent as everyone turned to see who was making all the noise. Devin; however, didn't have to turn to see since he already knew. As others looked they saw a strikingly beautiful blonde standing in a very strong stance. Sara
"Hey Sara." He said while turning. No surprise to him he saw Sara standing tall with a few of her normal friends. She had a look which matched her fire groups bonfire and had a seemingly upset tone in her voice. "Just giving out some orientation to the new transfer. Sure you remember the notice we got..." Devin was cut short by Sara who began to talk again.
"Yes, Devin I know. What I don't know is why you were asked to show her around. As you can see she is living across the hall from me." Sara had crossed her arms and started to look like she was thinking then after something came to her she walked forward and walked right up to Devin who started to look away while she spoke to him in a lecturing voice. "Just remember that it was Fire who ended up with the Student Cup last year and it is going to stay that way this year." Her tone had gotten softer, but her eyes were still burning. Sara then turned to Liv. "Welcome to the North American Magic Academy. We call it home and we welcome you."
Devin saw that Sara didn't introduce yourself and was confused until she looked over at him and then saw what it is she was expecting. He rolled his eyes a little and smiled. "Sara I would like you to meet the new transfer student Liv. Liv I would like you to meet Sara. She is the student president of the Fire group and as it turns out your new roommate." The group of students surrounding the little scene had started to lose interest when the conversation become more mild and soon enough people were back to their normal self.
[Just so you know I am not wanting Sara to be seen as a bitch or Malfoy like character. She is more just upset at Devin and her character will be a rather nice person. Still this will be interesting to see how Liv reacts. Just wanted to add this little bit of OOC so we don't instantly make her a evil bitch lol]
