Who: Neville Longbottom, Blaise Zabini, Michael Corner
Where: Hogsmeade Barracks, Hogsmeade
Summary: New recruit Blaise is tested
Watch For: 'Anything goes' and personality clashes
... And Let Me See ...
Despite the icy wind, Blaise kept the hood of his cloak down as they reached the training ground and barracks. Much warmth as it provided his ears, it also hampered his side-vision. Born and raised in the stormy mountains of northern Wales, he could endure cold far better than ignorance. As they'd passed through Hogsmeade, he'd noted the destruction, and the nascent rebuilding. There were deep wounds here, only just beginning to heal, and the Zabini name and face were on the wrong side of that.
Still, in deference to the arrival of the highland night, he'd drawn his gloves back on. Now, leather-sheathed thumbs hooked in his belt, he stood at Neville Longbottom's side and studied the structures before them.
