Professor,
Hello Professor d'Este.

Are you busy this weekend? Or sometime in the evening, perhaps.

Mister Skelton,

Bonjour, I hope you're having a good day.

I always have time for my students, specially if they ask for it. However, when we meet would depend on exactly how much of said time you require. Is there something you want to discuss with me or do you need my assistance with another matter?

Best regards,

Professor D'este

Professor,
Oh, well, um.

I suppose I would like some training outside of class.

The only issue is that it's not transfiguration magic. Would that be a problem?

Mister Skelton,

Training outside of class? I'm always one to appreciate a student's dedication, but I'm afraid I may need more details than just that. Is there anything in particular you have in mind?

Also, while Transfiguration magic could be considered my expertise, that does not mean I'm not proficient at other forms of magic. A proper wizard should have mastery over all fields. So, to answer your question: no, that's not a problem at all.

Best regards,

Professor D'este

Professor,
Oh... Well, I need training in some defensive magic. Defense against the Dark Arts sort of spells. I didn't want to trouble Professor Ka Mek because i didn't really want to talk to him.

You know the Boggart Invasion last year? In October?

Mister Skelton,

I see, I think I understand where you're coming from here. I heard of the Boggart invasion, an unfortunate event indeed, although I was not at Hogwarts at the time. Did something happen to you then?

I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but I used to be a Hit Witch, Mister Skelton. If you wish for me to teach you defensive magic, I'm sure we can arrange something, as long as your motives are true and you don't have any ill intentions. Does that seem fair to you?

Best regards,

Professor D'este

Professor,
Yes. Well, no, I... Well... Sort of. I was attacked I found a boggart in a room. It frightened me took me by surprise. I'd like to be able to protect myself if it happens again. Do you know how to stop nightmares?

I just... really don't want to go through that situation again.

I didn't know that, but yes. I think that would be fair. I promise, I only want to be able to defend myself, not to start fights. So, would you like me to come for lessons sometime after classes for the day, or on the weekends?

Mister Skelton,

I'm... really sorry to hear that, Moth. Encountering a boggart is a terrible experience that no one should go through, specially when unprepared. I'm glad to at least know you got out of it in one piece, the consequences could have been much worse.

I understand the sentiment, I really do, and that is why I decided I will help you. I can teach you how to defend yourself if you stay true to that promise. As for when the lessons should happen, I think the best option is likely that you stop by my house on your next Hogsmeade weekend, then we'll have plenty of time. I'll send you the address if you're alright with that.

Best regards,

Professor D'este

Professor,
It was terrifying. It wasn't too bad. I would just prefer it didn't happen again.

Your house? Are you sure? Is that allowed? I'd hate to break anything or... intrude. I've never visited a professor's house before. Or... anyone's, really. I mostly just stay at Hogwarts.

Mister Skelton,

Most people would be terrified when facing a boggart, Moth. That's what they do, they feed on our worst fears. But you overcame this, and that is much more impressive than what you may think.

You stay at Hogwarts? As in, permanently? Don't worry about coming to my house, really, you wouldn't be intruding at all. If that was the case I wouldn't have made the suggestion to begin with. I simply thought it would be a more comfortable situation than having to go to that same classroom you visit all week. Change of scenarios, I suppose? If you're more comfortable with having the lessons at school that can be arranged too.

Best regards,

Professor D'este

Professor,
I... yes, well. Thank you.

Well, yes. I don't have anywhere else to go, Professor. I was told that that was allowed?
In that case, I'd like to agree to coming to your house for training, then - thank you, Professor d'Este, really. It's one thing having to ask for this training in the first place, but having to take extra lessons where someone might wander in and see what I'm doing is... an embarassing idea. Not that I'm embarassed of learning more spells, of course, but... the context behind it is something I'd rather keep quiet.

Won't your family mind, though?

Mister Skelton,

It is, but it doesn't mean it's a good situation. I'm sorry I was not aware. What will you do now that summer is coming up?

Also, I understand that reasoning, Moth, and it is why I suggested having the lessons at my home in the first place. Some things are hard to explain to those who have not lived through them, and these reasons to want to learn defensive magic are... personal, to say the least. It will be alright.

As for my family, I mostly live on my own, although my son may want to greet you at some point. He's rather shy, so it may also not happen at all.

Best regards,

Professor D'este

Professor,
Um, well, I just stay at Hogwarts during the summer. I have since first year - I don't really mind, it gives me some time to get a head-start on studying, or let me catch up on books.

Thank you, professor.

I didn't know you had a son. I don't know why I would know, though. How old is he?

Mister Skelton,

Isn't that a bit boring and lonely though? Catching up on reading and studying are always good things, Moth, as is being diligent, but everyone deserves a break once in a while, including you. I hope you at least try to have some fun.

I would have been surprised, concerned, and confused if you had known, honestly. I generally try not to discuss my personal life with students. Bastien is will turn 3 in a couple of months, don't worry, I don't think he will interrupt your lesson too much, if at all.

Best regards,

Professor D'este

Professor,
I... I'm quite fine with how eveything is for me, thank you Professor. I appreciate your concern, but being lonely doesn't particularly bother me. I'm used to it, after all.

That seems fair. I'm sure he's very sweet, though. Kids are cute.
Don't worry, even if he does interrupt I wouldn't really mind - he's only a kid, after all.
But... really, Professor d'Este, thankyou for offering to help me. I'll try my hardest not to let you down.

- Moth

Mister Skelton,

My apologies, I didn't mean to intrude in your personal affairs. I suppose I just thought of how I myself wouldn't have enjoyed being alone at the castle at all back when I was a student, or even now.

He is a really sweet kid, I think that you will like him, although I may have a slightly biased opinion on the matter. He's my son, after all.

You're very welcome, I'm sure you wont let me down, but this is not something you should do for me, it should be for yourself. It is my most sincere hope that you keep that in mind.

Best regards,

Professor D'este
