Jacob had many hiding places when he needed them and even though this was a completely new school to him some of the same places were still great for being alone. The kitchens being his number one place to hide way for awhile during a free day and just do what he loved most. Sadly this being a new school meant these were all new house-elves, creatures not used to him being there and for the most part didn’t want him there either. They didn’t outright say it and Jacob assumed they just couldn’t if they even wanted to as it would go against their nature. Yet they weren’t very subtle about it. The library could be another place to be alone but it seemed the students of Hogwarts liked their library even more than those of Ilvermorny.
No, the best place he could find at the moment to get some peace and quiet was near what the school called the black lake. Ilvermorny didn’t really have a lake near by like Hogwarts. His old school was up near the mountains so it was an interesting sight. Jacob liked being alone sometimes for a number of reasons. One was that he wasn’t nervous with no on around. He never understood why but being around people he wasn’t sure of yet always put him on edge, especially girls. The second was that being a natural born legilimens he could read people from a very young age with almost no training. What training he did need was to not hear people’s thoughts or know memories. It wasn’t too hard to keep out of people’s minds but if Jacob wasn’t paying attention he could easily hear what someone was thinking. Even going so far as to answer their thought, which never ended up going well as people would think he was going through their thoughts on purpose.
He was happy just sitting back by the lake and relaxing for a moment, sure he’d rather be in the kitchen but this was nice too.
