So apparently I'm getting a surprise! Vesta and the others said I was to meet them out behind the greenhouses tomorrow afternoon, and then I'd properly be one of them! But I can't tell anyone else, it's a secret. I can't wait, it's so nice to fit in somewhere and to have actual friends and not just people who stare at me and talk about me. Even though...well, I'm just going to forget that other thing, with the girl. I can't do anything to help her, not anything more. I hope one of the professors got that note I charmed into the staff room though. At least if they know the hex, they can fix her, right? I'm sure she'll be fine. I've had to stop talking about her, 'cause Vesta started to get annoyed. I mean, I suppose that's fair enough. Maybe she feels bad too, but I doubt it. She's too tough to feel bad.
Sometimes I wish I was more like her. Life would be easier if I didn't feel as much or think about things so much. That's when I start to feel crap and Vesta has to shove me out of it. I don't know what I would do without a friend like her. Even if she scares me a little sometimes. I'm sure I'll get used to her, especially when I'm properly one them. Oh, I can't wait!
