She made up in energy and personality and BRIGHT PINK GUMBOOOTS!

As Olive stepped out of the way, Lisa walked over to the bars and bent down and then sprang to reach them.... She was so so ... oh so far away from ever reaching the bars. Her cheeks flushed red out of embarrassment for she didn't want to see lame. Her eyes flicked over to the castle and then back to the bars. Aha! She had an idea.

"Hold on..." She then went and began climbing the nearby small Hogawrts sized castle and then took a leap of faith (or in reality flung herself at the monkey bars for dear life). "Ha! Ha!!!" she cried out as she grabbed onto the bars. Now she was just hanging out. She pulled herself up, wiggling her feet to help her get higher (it didn't actually help but the action made her feel MUCH better), and then peered down at the other girl. "Made it. Now I don't want to get down at all...." she bit her lip as she glanced at the girl below her and the ground.... If she fell.... the impact could really hurt.
Olive watched as the girl attempted to reach the monkey bars. "Yeah, I'm going to Hogwarts. First year." She stifled her laugh as she watched the girl fail miserably. Could someone her own age be such a big comparison to her? She had to accept that it was possible, and it was standing right in front of her.

Lollies hum? Sure if that's what she wanted to call herself, who was Ollie to tear her down. She was funny, that Ollie was for sure of. All her friends at home were book nerds and smarties. None of them had a fun personality like this girl. The only time they wanted to hang out with her was after school in the library. What fun was to be had there? They couldn't even talk to each other!

"I'm Olive, but you can call me Ollie... Actually, I prefer Ollie" She informed the girl, hoping to make a new, exciting friend. She watched the girl walk over to the mini Hogwarts and take her leap of faith. Ollie winced not wanting to see her fall. But when she opened her eyes there she was, successfully on top of the monkey bars, right where Ollie had just been. SHe did look nervous up there. Ollie figured it looked a lot more daring for someone who was used to being closer to the ground.

"You might want to be careful up there. My hands are scrapped from coming down." She informed the girl. Ollie was used to scrapes though. She spent most of her time outside anyway, so she didn't mind.
