Audrey inched a little closer to Max.
"That's true," she said softly. "I always liked history." Audrey ate quickly again. "Come on. Let's get to Charms early."
Max and Audrey got lost more than once on the way to charms. The castle was large and had plenty of empty rooms. They got there at the same time as the Ravenclaws. Flitwick started class by calling roll.
"Now," said Flitwick, "Who can tell me what a charm is."
Audrey and another girl across the room raised their hands.
"Charms is one of the seven known spell types," the other girls blurted out.
"Charms change or add to properties of an object. It also changes what an object does, as opposed to what an object is, like in transfiguration."
"One point to Ravenclaw for each of you. Now who can give some examples of some charms we might learn in this class."
Audrey was determined to be first this time and forwent raising her hand altogether. "There's the hover charm and the cheering charm."
The other girl was sitting with her hand in the air looking insulted. "There is also the summoning charm, banishing charm, engorgement charm, silencing charm, and the confundus charms."
"Oh my," Flitwick said. "Let's not forget to raise our hands now. Anyway, what do you say one point for each spell listed. So that would be seven points to Ravenclaw.
