However, Jerry knows that this professor has some gift in Divination magic. The famous prophecy came from her mouth, and the prophecy did come true in the end.
But that was beyond anything that she usually does. Her usual prediction activities are probably to make a hundred predictions, while most of them are not going to be true, whilst some may be real.
Jerry had checked the relevant information before regarding this professor. Although her Divination level is not good, she is really good at teaching him some Divination.
She is the great-great-granddaughter of the famous Cassandra Trelawney, a witch who was born with the ability to foresee the future using the Inner Eye. Prophecies made by Seers are recorded by the Ministry of Magic and stored in the Department of Mysteries.
Or suppose you haven’t heard about Cassandra Trelawney. In that case, you’re probably familiar with the name Gellert Grindelwald because he was also a Seer who predicted the second Muggle World War that had not yet happened in 1927.
Therefore, Jerry thinks that the professor’s class can be listened to and referenced. If he really wants to master Divination that can predict ten or several decades, he also needs to spend time and study it.
Or when he gets the Dream card, he can study it later.
“So, you’ve taken Divination class, which is the most profound class of all magical arts. I must tell you that if you don’t have the gift, I can’t do anything about it. Books can teach you, but they’ll only do a small portion of it.”
After Professor Trelawney asked everyone to open their books, they began to set up a prediction practice ahead of time.
Jerry’s understanding is that Divination magic is very deep, and it has nothing to do with the textbook and her teaching if you are not good at it. The main reason is that you don’t have the talent to do so.
On Jerry’s side, Hermione was shocked when she heard that books did not help the subject much. Because in her opinion, no matter what class it is, books are very important. It is precisely because she spends time previewing and reciting books in advance that she can be more efficient than others in the class.
“Today, we will learn the basics of Divination. Tea divination or Tessomancy, please turn to the fifth page and start the divination in two groups.” In this way, Professor Trelawney began her teaching after making up some terrifying prophecies for a few students.
Jerry closed the book three hours later and sighed, “This doesn’t make sense at all.”
After the class, he didn’t find any logic and magic principles from what Professor Trelawney explained. He didn’t learn anything just now.
“I think the Divination class is a mess. She’s obviously just making up those things.” When Hermione put away the book, she complained.
Apparently, she felt that Arithmancy is more believable because it has some logical procedure. In comparison, this kind of divination by observing the characteristics of the future by using the sixth sense is no better than just random guessing.
After the class, the secondary classes will begin in the afternoon.
In addition to Transfiguration, Charms, Potions, etc., the secondary classes for the third grade also have the Care of Magical Animal class. In the afternoon, Gryffindor and Slytherin will take the Magical Animal class together, and it will be the first time Hagrid teaches in Hogwarts.
The class subject is to understand the personalities of hippogriffs, get along well with them, and ride them around the Forbidden Forest.
The whole process went smoothly, except that Draco said something rude and was attacked by the hippogriff. But it was blocked by Jerry with the Protego Charm. After the class, Jerry stayed alone instead of returning to the castle.
“Jerry, thank you so much just now. If students are injured in my first class, I’ll be in trouble.” Hagrid held Jerry’s hand, his eyes full of guilt and gratitude.
He was very concerned and nervous about his career as a teacher. He didn’t expect that a major incident would happen. If Jerry hadn’t reacted quickly, he might have ended his role as a teacher today.
Jerry smiled and shook his head, then took out a small box from his robe, “Hagrid, you are one of the best magizoologists in the world. Today was just an accident, and it’s not your fault. By the way, I’m staying here to give you something that I accidentally bought in Greece. I think you’ll like it!”
Hagrid was a very enthusiastic person when it came to magical animals. He knows everything about it, such as how to care for Norbert or a dragon, Thestrals, a three-headed dog or Fluffy, and so on. So Jerry also intends to give him some small gifts in return.
“This is a chimera and a griffin!” Hagrid opened the box and immediately let out a voice of surprise.
Because he saw two magical animal cubs in the box, one with the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of a fire dragon. In contrast, the other one was an eagle head with a body of a lion with a tail. These two are the famous Greek magical animals Chimera and Griffin.
“I’ll leave it to you. I’ll be going now!” Rejecting Hagrid’s invitation to dinner, Jerry told Hagrid not to tell others that he had given him a Chimera and a Griffin and waved away.
Chimeras and Griffins are like dragons. The Ministry of Magic restricts them, and cannot be owned privately. But the box he holds has an Extension Charm attached, which the Ministry of Magic does not allow.
However, Hagrid is also the type of person who doesn’t like to follow the rules. He is not worried that Hagrid will be in trouble as long as he can keep it a secret.
“Alright, time go to the Room of Requirement tonight to seal the soul in Ravenclaw’s diadem. Then go to the Ministry of Magic in London to get a magic car and do some meditation. However, it might cost me a lot of red stars. Fortunately, the Voldemort souls should give me plenty of red stars later.”
On the way back to the hall for dinner, Jerry started making plans for the evening.
