That's called magic, Ape, magic... :D
And Darkness, I really pity your character. Eaten by zombies... Eeeek.

Chapter V – Lost?
Aeris ran for about a minute before noticing that something was terribly wrong. She did not know where the library was. And worse, she did not know where she was now. Looking around her, confused, she tried to find an appropriate solution to the problem.
(That's simple. Let's just go back to the classroom and ask for more indications.)
And so, the young woman turned backed to the path she thought was leading to the right location. Nearly five minutes passed before she realized that she was obviously lost. Her first reaction was to cede to panic, chewing nervously her lower lips while spinning around to find any possible clue of where she was. Pragmatism made her calm down, knowing that losing her nerves would be indeed a bad idea. After some reflections, she came to the conclusion that she would first have to find someone who could help her. She went to the nearest door and knocked, waiting calmly for an answer. None was given. As she tried opening the door, she realized that it was locked. Her initial surprise was quickly washed away by an embarrassed chuckle.
(Of course it's locked… As if all the rooms were occupied… I wonder what I expected…)
As nearly all the doors were unfortunately locked – and the ones which weren't led to empty and dusty abandoned classrooms – she started thinking about another option. How much time did she loose already? Thirty minutes? Perhaps even more? The corridors were so silent… If she hadn't encounter Rukia, she could have believed that the edifice was deserted. Fumbling with the paper the teacher gave her, she tried finding some relatively useful informations on it. A map. A map. This time the chuckle was replaced by a loud laugh. How stupid she had proved herself! How could she probably explain to the teacher the delay, now? She had no excuses.
(Alright… So where am I…)
As she spotted on the map what seemed to be the courtyard she was facing, she managed to draw in her mind the shortest route to the library. Ten minutes later, she opened the door of an empty room.
(Nope, that's not it.)
Continuing her quest with her map, she quickly identified her mistake, and once again headed for the library. Once again, an empty room was the confirmation of her mistake.
(Doesn't look like it either…)
Annoyed by the previous failures, she turned the map upside down two or three times, trying to spot a liable element in her surroundings that could be found in the map. This time, she would succeed. Walking in long strides, it didn't last long before she came in the view of a large door.
As she opened the door, satisfied, she almost dropped to the floor.
No that's the god damn toilets! She raged out of frustration.
Slamming her fist angrily on the rocky wall, she did nothing more than hurting herself. Yep, such unconsidered action could be very painful, and the young woman was glad she had not used her head to accomplish such a feat. Muttering silence curses while holding her aching hand, never she would have noticed the silent and slender silhouette that now stood barely two steps behind her.
May I help you, young lady? Asked a melodic voice.
Quickly turning around to face the speaker, who wore a long night-blue cloak, thus hiding his face, the young girl answered in a embarrassed tone.
Hum… Well… Actually, yes. Could you tell me where the library is?
Right here, he answered, pointing at door next to the toilets.
Aeris blushed deep-red as she realized her mistake. The map was not wrong. She had just chosen the wrong door out of impatience.
Oh… Errr… Hum… Thanks… She said, confused, while walking towards the door.
Might I know what you intend to do in the library? The slender figure gently asked.
I… Have to give… Hum… This, to the librarian, said she, waving nervously the paper she had in hands.
Then no further will you need to go. I am the librarian.
Oh… Then… Hum, here you go.
She handed the paper to the librarian, whose hands revealed to be as dark as ebonite. After such a sight, she eyed him quite curiously, although she realized short after such things were not polite at all. Having apparently noticed the sudden attention of the young human, the librarian answered casually without leaving his eyes from the paper.
Drow. Dark elf, if you prefer.
It took some times for Aeris to register such informations, for she did not expect them to be exposed so easily.
Oh, right! Sorry, I am a bit lost.
She chuckled nervously while waiting for the drow's verdict. A few moment later, he bade her to follow him into the library. Such a large room, filled with knowledge (and dust)! Handing her a well crafted book, a feather, ink and some parchments, the dark elf then said.
Well, here you go, young lady.
Don't worry, I will accompany you to mister Harpell.
Thanks! (How did he know that? Oh well, I guess I must seem very lost indeed.)
Locking the great wooden doors as they left the library, thus securing centuries or millenniums of precious lore and wisdom, the two of them headed back to the classroom. While walking, the young lady curiously peeked out at the book, which was absolutely… empty. Nothing written on it.
Excuse me… She started with a curious tone.
The book will be yours to fill. Spells, mostly, for you will need them in written form to memory them each day, he quickly answered.
They resumed their walk, Aeris having now more questions in head than answers she had been given.
