The day had been unpleasant so far. Most April Fools Days were. Some students had been pulling pranks, and she nearly screamed every time one of their fireworks went off, even if it was in a different place in the castle. By the time dinner arrived, Rusti had become completely fed up with everyone around her. She just wanted to curl up in her bed and sing herself to sleep, no more loud noises, no more explosions. Just quiet.
She squeaked a little as she jumped in her seat, the food falling off of her fork. That bang was a lot closer than any of the other ones had been today. She glanced at her twin, Dusti who sat next to her. She always felt safer with her sister near, though she wished she could feel safe on her own as well. She mentally chided herself for not being strong enough and then went back to her food. Another bang echoed through the doors of the Great Hall and Rusti's hand went to Dusti's leg in shock.
"That is just those stupid fireworks, right?" she whispered, a worried expression on her face.
