Russell found himself walking into the registration office; he had only been here for a couple of days and was already beginning to love this city. The entire atmosphere here was different than his home, but that’s exactly what made him feel so much more comfortable here. No stuck up knights telling him what to do anymore, nor did he have his grandfather breathing down his neck to practice magic until he was close to hurting himself with it. He had woken up extra early this morning to make sure that he was here on time, he wouldn’t have to keep his identity as a new person a secret anymore, and he’d have all the papers to protect him.
He saw the papers on a table as soon as he came in, a number of people were already here which surprised him a good deal. He made sure to sign in each and every bit, but he found himself hesitating as he had to sign in his place of birth and the magic skills that he knew.
Russell felt a little satisfied after having finished that piece of paper off, now just to hand it in. He found himself taking a closer look at the room around him, it wasn't very busy, but he felt a little intimidated by the man guarding the single door. It was rare for him to feel intimidated and that's what bothered Russell the most about this situation. He decided to keep his paper in hand and wait for his turn to come around.
