Alic took a deep, shaky breath.
He'd admit it; he was nervous to all Hell.
Thankfully, Summer School was in session, and even more thankfully, no one had to take Care of Magical Creatures this Summer. He didn't even know if a student could take Care of Magical Creatures as a Summer Course, considering it was an elective. Could kids take elective Summer Courses? He'd have to ask.
In the rush, he hadn't had time to relax. He'd had to get a passport and a visa (thankfully the Ministry of Magic had managed to make that go so much faster), a Portkey, and pack all in a very short amount of time, to move into Tallygarunga after getting the job - and wasn't that a mouthful! He thought Hogwarts was bad!
But now he was all unpacked, setup in his own quarters. He had a map of the school, and had been given a rather extensive tour. But it was several hours until dinner, and he was too keyed up to nap. So, finally, he'd grabbed the case of his violin, and headed out to the courtyard. The courtyard, to his luck, seemed to be empty and abandoned, so he'd found a shaded spot to set down his violin and sit on a bench. He'd pulled out his violin, quickly checking the strings of the instrument and the hairs of the violin, before rosining his bow.
He quickly tuned the instrument (considering that it had gone through Floo, it had stayed tuned remarkably well) before beginning to play, the notes to Mazurka in A Minor echoing throughout the Courtyard.
