The Rissannas
Social niceties are never nice
Fri Jul 16, 2010 5:46pm

"I've no idea, I'm sure," Vera promised, effectively ignoring the other adults in their vicinity. Cyan was the only one of even vague importance.

One topic seemed to be buzzing around the entire room, even as Vera had entered and walked through the crowds. Professor O'Locke. The Muggle woman. She was altogether unkempt and aloof, two qualities Vera particularly disliked in a Muggle. Personally, she had sent a variety of hexes and curses the woman's way, but had not heard of an effective assassination, and obviously, seeing the fiend now, Cassandra O'Locke was alive and well. It wasn't until Vera had been blackmailed by a strange small woman with an awful smirk that she had stopped sending the curses.

"Unheard of," Vera agreed, nodding solemnly. "And so uncouth, I saw her passing through the Court."

Sloane regarded Damon. She had seen him around, heard things, made it her business to watch and observe every student in the same building as her. She had not completed her analysis of him, but this was the first time they had come face to face. He looked at her and raised his eyebrows, smiling blandly, nodding. She gazed steadily back at him, eyebrows a fraction higher than usual, and then tilted her head in a sarcastic sort of acknowledgment. She generally disliked interacting with others in front of anyone else.

"It's that age," Vera smiled fondly, gazing emotionlessly down at her daughter. Sloane looked across the room to avoid her glance. "Have you heard if any of the others will be here this evening? I was hoping to take the opportunity to begin finding a suitable betrothal." It was blunt, but Vera was blunt. Most people knew that by now. "I understand the Traceys and DeMonicos have finalized engagements for Miriam and Richard. Have you heard of any others?"

    Cyan was taken by surprise, "Oh hello Vera," she smiled and returned the kiss, "I do agree. For some bizarre reason Drake thought that Damon should come to the same school as the rest of the family." ... more

      • Isn't there a reason for them being called 'niceties'?Cyan and Damon, Fri Jul 16 6:05pm
        Cyan nodded again, "Oh yes, she really did look a state," this, Cyan really did mean. She disliked dreadlocks with a passion, "I'm surprised they gave her a teaching job. An absolute state ." "Oh...... more

                      "Really? Well, whatever he is, it's disgusting. What a way to get a job." Tahlia nodded at Grace, glaring over at the Muggle. "I suppose you can't expect anything better from these people. We had... more
