When Henry Suckers hit the ripe age of 21, he knew his time has finally come. While he has already decided on the course he wishes to take, the choice of institution has yet to be decided. There are many around, but 4 of them stood up due to their impeccable reputation.
Suckers’ first priority was to enter Peetwogs Witchcraft College, dubbed the best school of its kind. Graduates from this college hold high position in many castles in the kingdom. Make no mistake, it’s no easy feat to enter this college. While the quality of their intake has slowly been depreciating, Peetwogs Witchcraft College is said to only take the crème de la crème. Suckers will have to be at his best to get in.
Next is the Kenistry People Magic Garden. Situated in a prime location, this school offers a wide range of magical courses. It also boasts of its very own castle, one that bears its name. Though not as reputable as Peetwogs, Suckers will not hesitate to take up any offer from Kenistry.
Encharmed Yourself is another place where Suckers can learn their magical tricks. The reputation of this school was boosted due to its successful collaboration with Al-magic Assistance, which has since been totally absorbed by Encharmed Yourself. Suckers thought that this place is not that bad either, he will certain give it a thinker should an offer comes along.
Then there is the Dementours Killing College. As the courses offered here are pretty specialised, i.e. killing of dementours, it renders this college the least famous amongst the 4. As such, it is no surprise that Suckers will try to enter this college as a last resort. After all, Suckers will still get to learn the trade of magic. But the facilities here can be quite sub-standard. Rumour has it that students have share crystal ball during certain courses.
After a long process of sending out applications and attending entrance interviews, Suckers was rejected by Peetwogs while offers came from Kenistry and Encharmed Yourself. After much deliberation, Encharmed Yourself was chosen, due to its ample parking space for transporters. Encharmed is the only school amongst the top 4 that provides parking convenience, at a charge of course.
Upon entering Encharmed, Henry Suckers was quickly taught the very basic craft, the magic of duplicating transcripts. With this spell called “photo-copios”, a bright light will illuminates from a certain instrument and any paper based transcripts will magically duplicate itself. A very fascinating spell, but many students like Suckers get bored quickly with it. Nevertheless, this is an essential art for they will need to cast the “photo-copios” spell many times in time to come.
The next spell that Henry Suckers learnt from Encharmed was the magical art of balancing. It is a crucial trick in any dual presentation that the left side of the presentation reconciles to the right. Many students hate doing this and thus, they often refer to this presentation as a piece of shit. Due to this, the people in the witchcraft and wizardry kingdom often refer it as ‘balance shit’. When things do not balance, a spell called “balencio ette ol cost” is cast. A powerful element will emerge and force itself either to the right or the left side of the presentation, depending on needs. A powerful spell indeed, not many can master this spell.
Next is the art of disappearing. No, not physical disappearance, not yet, only lecturers can cast the self disappearing spell. Students will learn the basic disappearing trick first. When there are unwanted elements, often unable to be placed within the ‘balance shit’ or anywhere else in any presentation, there is a need to make these remnants disappear. This spell is called “immaterialisis”. Certain faculty in the school despise this spell. As remnants are very important to them, this faculty often complains to the lecturers of any abusive casting of “immaterialisis”. However, it is still widely cast; particularly when the “balencio ette ol cost” spell could not be conjured up.
One spell that Suckers have to master is the evil art of making others feel stupid. Others here refer people who are not exposed to the art of witchcraft and wizardry. Henry Suckers find this evil as it plays with the mind of others. But, it is the most important magic that one can learn from any magical school. This spell called “Ayem meh consultanus” can play with the mind of people and if cast with a level of authority, one can really feel that he is more intelligent compared to the rest.
As time goes by, Henry Suckers felt that everything points to the “Ayem meh consultanus” spell. In fact, it is the sole spell that all students wish to master upon entering these magical schools. But Suckers felt disillusioned after spending a few years in Encharmed, because casting the “Ayem meh consultanus” spell will only give a short term solution. Making others feel stupid doesn’t mean they are really stupid. Sometimes, it is the lecturers and the students of these schools who are totally oblivious about what they are doing.
Anyway, being in the witchcraft and wizardry practice is crucial in the demanding magical kingdom. After spending so much time studying, Suckers can't wait to graduate and leave. Will he succeed though? We will see…
