Charlie sighed, scratching out another sentence and replacing it with a new one before dropping her quill and rubbing at her temples. Why she had ever thought it was a good idea to take Ancient Runes as an extra-curricular class she’d never know! All those different runes and pronunciations were making her head hurt. She’d been trying to complete the class’s homework for the past two hours, but all she’d really achieved was wasting a couple sheets of parchment and using up half of her ink.
The redhead definitely wasn’t one of the smartest people in the world, but she should have been able to properly translate everything; the class had been working on translations since the beginning of the year! Frowning slightly, she picked up her quill and attempted to decipher the next line of squiggles. Unfortunately, Charlie was just as successful with that as her brother had been when he’d tried to dye his hair a vibrant green. In the end, it had turned out more blonde than green… and in a twisted, metaphorical way that was exactly what was happening to her homework. The answers were meant to be a bright green, but all she’d been able to accomplish was a dull looking blonde; not exactly the best way to start one’s day.
After huffing a bit more, and attempting one last translation, she cast her gaze around the library, checking to see if any of her classmates were present. There was no one there that she recognized from the class, which was a huge shame. Any one of her classmates would have been able to finish the translations in a few minutes! It was so frustrating! She just kept telling herself that it wasn’t her fault, and that it was the runes fault for getting so jumbled up in her head. And even though she tried her hardest, she just couldn’t straighten them out and learn the different pronunciations and translation methods. They just didn’t stick!
Sighing once more, Charlie continued scanning the library for any familiar faces for a few moments more before looking back at her books, her face taking on a look of pure frustration. Merlin, why was no one ever around when she needed help with homework? They were always there when she had food, or was trying to draw or colour in peace. But nope, when she needed help, no one came within twenty feet of her. The redhead raked her fingers through her already disheveled hair and looking around the quiet space, her eyes full of hope. Maybe someone would finally show up…
