"Its nothing too special really," he said, laughing. "I promise you that the novelty of living here wears off really quickly after a while. Give me a few minutes to make sure the house is in a reasonable state, I don't have visitors very often...well, more like ever."
He vanished into the house, the lion turning to Aurora and rubbing its head against her hand, encouraging her to pet it.
"Wow, almost no-one gets to pet Tea aside from Barkeley, she must REALLY like you," said a voice that at first seemed to come from nowhere, but then its source revealed itself. Jumping from a tree where Muroe had been sat moments before was a young man, dressed in a bright blue shirt and a rather tattered pair of jeans. "Sorry, Barkeley should've warned you before I did that. I'm Muroe, I happen to be an animagus." He smiled at the confused look on her face. "Basically I can take the form of any animal I wish, I just prefer my eagle form." The biggest hint as to his identity was the fact his eyes were emerald green, exactly the same as the eagle's she had seen before.
