If there is one thing you need to know about Humphrey Williams, it is that he is a bibliofile. Which is a fancy term for a bookworm. He is always reading a book, likes all genres, and if you ask him what his favorite book or series is you will be talking a long time. His favorite kind of books to read had always been Fantasy and Science Fiction books.

This was his first time in a Wizard's book shop though. The first thing that threw him off were the moving pictures on covers. He was a Muggleborn, so he was used to pictures staying where they were. When he got used to it though, he thought it was awesome. You could do a picture of the climax of the story, and you would literally be showed a five or ten second clip of whatever it was.

At the moment, he was browsing the biography section of the shop. He picked up a book about a wizard called Albus Dumbledore. Looking at the back, he read the synopsis of what it was about. It was the story of a Hogwarts Headmaster, who had defeated the dark wizard Grindelwald. Also, it said, he was a mentor to one Harry Potter. Apparently Harry Potter had also overthrown a dark wizard named Voldemort about fifteen years ago.It looked very interesting, and he decided he would buy it.

Next, he moved to the fantasy, science fiction, and regular fiction part of the shop. Humphrey knew he could spend hours upon hours looking at the books in this part of the shop. When he was in a book store, he was like a little kid in a candy store. But, he had made sure to only bring enough money to buy two books tops. Otherwise he would be flat broke in about five minutes with an armful of books.

Anne walked into Flourish and Blott's she was going to get a book for DJ and a few for herself. She had a bit of time on her hands seeing as she really couldn't do much. The disadvantage of being very pregnant. She saw the ravenclaw from her class. She smiled and walked over to the children's section. She smiled seeing that he got a book on Dumbledore. She had a few visions of the headmaster and thought he was a good man. She was proud to go to the school and to have been in his house.

"Hello, Humphrey" She said politely. "How are you?" She asked him.

"Hello Professor Greene. How are you doing? The pregnancy going well so far?" he asked her. She was very obviously carrying a child. She was one of the teachers who he really liked. Fun, smart, and good at relating to kids. Everything a teacher needed to be able to do to run an efficient classroom. His first Divination class was a pleasant surprise, it was still his least favorite class because of the unpredictability of it. But, he had enjoyed the palm reading lesson.

"Did you ever get to meet Albus Dumbledore?" he asked her. "He sounds like an extremely talented wizard. Apparently, he overthrow this dark wizard guy named Grindelwald. Then trained a younger wizard to defeat another dark wizard named Voldemort. Sounds like a pretty cool dude." Humphrey said. He was excited about getting into the biography. Very excited if truth be told, he hadn't read a good biography in a long time.

Anne smiled. "Please call me Anne. Really it gets too confusing, there being two Professor Greene's." She said smiling. "Very well, thank you." She said. "how are you liking classes so far?" She asked. She knew that her class was not his favourite, but she knew why it was because with out the gift, it was so unknown.

"I never met him." She said shaking her head. "Yes he was a very good wizard." She said smiling. She liked the old headmaster.

"Okay, Anne. It feels weird calling a teacher by a first name. But, if that's what you want then okay. Classes are fantastic so far, all the professors have been really good. I just need to find a couple more friends." Humphrey explained. As a teacher, she may not have noticed, but he didn't really have any friends yet. Except for maybe Tatiana Devit. But, one friend is not near enough.

"Ah, I see. So, what kind of books do you like to read Anne?" he asked her. He could spend a lifetime in book stores. Be perfectly content too, as long as they kept ordering new books that is. On average, he read about one book a week. Sometimes two though, depending on the amount of free time he had.
