Tifa has gone to her bed in the dorm and dropped her things on it before realizing that there were others sleeping in the other beds, not a lot because not all the girls were back yet. Looking around Tifa made sure she hadn't woken anyone else up before reaching for a bag and starting to throw stuff into it. It wasn't until she was halfway through packing her things up that Tifa looked at what she was doing and asked herself why?

Once everything was back where it belonged she grabbed her diary instead and sat on the bed knowing she should probably get some sleep. However, it was quiet and none of the other girls were up so she figured it was the perfect time to write a promise to herself. Reaching for her quill and inkwell and her wand Tifa settled in for writing. "Lumos," She said in a hushed tone causing the tip of her wand to light up.

"Win-GAR-dee-um lev-ee-OH-sa," She said in the same hushed tone causing her inkwell to levitate so she didn't have to worry about knocking it over. Then Tifa started writing.

Dear Diary,

The ghost, or what I think is the ghost, of Headmistress Filipa Freitas has been teaching me protective spells for the last couple of months while most of the students were gone. Tonight she taught me the snake summons spell Serpensortia and the snake vanishing spell Vipera Evanesca. Honestly, it wasn't as hard as I had thought it would be. I mean my wandwork could use some practice, but the spells were easy.

Prince came in at the end, I don't know if he was delusional or just tired, but he drew his wand on me, I had put mine away so I was defenseless. Ok well not really, I mean I could have used my ice ability on him if I really needed to but this is Prince we're talking about. He's my friend, he brought me to school. At least I thought he was my friend. But He claimed his wand was out in protection of the school and himself. Like I was dangerous. talking about how ghosts can't carry wands. Filipa didn't have a wand, at least not one I saw.

I'll show Prince, I'll show all of them. I'm not dangerous, I'm not a threat, but I am powerful. I'm not going to run away, besides tomorrow night is the carnival I had planned to go to and I think I'll stick to those plans. I'm not going to run away. I've read too many stories of Muggle-born witches running away when things get hard and possibly becoming the very danger that others have perceived them to be. I refuse to turn into the very danger that Prince perceives me to be tonight.

Tifa closed her diary caped her inkwell, "Nox," She said putting out her wand. Moving to her trunk with a flick of her wand she popped the secret compartment to her trunk placed her diary within it and spelled it to unlock for her and her alone then put her inkwell and quill pen back in its spot.

With that done, Tifa crawled into her bed to get some sleep.
