Default Divination Lesson; dendromancy

As had been foretold in the corn husks, it was a sunny cloudless day at Hogwarts. Perfect conditions for what was to come and had the usually resigned centaur in an almost playful spirit as he stood beside his stump in anticipation of the two-legged one's (your) arrivals with the Forbidden Forest to his back. Sitting on the stump is a wooden bowl filled with colorful edible flowers carefully selected and plucked from the earth by Thereos and a few select younglings from his colony.

A pleasantly crisp breeze shifts his peppered brown locks, signaling the arrival of Hogwarts students and the rise of his chest. Upon making eye contact, his warm eyes of earthy hues reflective of the forest and the autumnal leaves seemingly bore into your very soul, he instructs you to pick one or two flowers from the bowl to consume. "Take this time to slow down. It is vital to your success here today. Use all your senses to see it, touch it, smell it, and sense it. Once you have become acquainted with your selections, gently slip each into your mouth. One at a time. Allow each petal to melt against your tongue. Sense it. Savor it. Smile between each wave of floral flavor. Let it linger and then swallow it. After you have swallowed it, let your lips turn up slightly and smile."

The flowers are all perfectly safe. No harm will come to you. Trust. Centaurs are not prone to such deceitful methods of instruction.

So come. Take your flowers and mindfully eat them. Instruction will begin shortly.
- Arrive at the stump at the edge of the Forbidden Forest; mindful floral eating (this post)
- Entering the Forbidden Forest; what do the trees tell you of our purpose here today? (link)
- arriving at a sacred crooked grove; what natural order and rituals have brought you here on this path to Hogwarts?(link)
- preparing for a dendromancy reading (link)

- Thereos calls the class to him (link)

Abnormal did not even begin to describe the behavior Thereos was witnessing among the bowtruckles and made the centaur all too eager to return to his home to consult the sage.

"I do not know, Mr. McCarthy," he replied with an airy graveness while looking over both of his broad shoulders to check that his students were all accounted for and to evaluate the positions of the bowtruckles. "It is clear that our presence has brought forth great trepidation and that we shall not be able to perform readings as predicted. We must not fight the forces before us. All is a sign. An acorn at the threshold will keep lightning out."

Pausing a moment here, Thereos glanced around the groove just as the cloudless sky was no more and the sun eclipsed. Even if they were to have successfully began their readings, all had turned to bad omens now on the scent of an approaching downpour. A most unsettling of circumstances. The path of Jupiter had assured him there was to be no rain for another two weeks.

"Back to the castle, younglings. Stay close to me and do not fear. We will survive this tempest of uncertainty."

His eyes then gazed upon the bowtruckles and a particular part of their perimeter in fervent hope that, as a fellow dweller of the Forbidden Forest, they would permit him escort all back to the safety of the castle.

His priority did not seem to be to teach them what he knew... .................................................. ......
but rather to impress upon them that nothing, not even centaurs' knowledge, was foolproof
