Cassandra Locke and Jael Grace
I was hoping to find you.
Tue Jul 20, 2010 12:08am

Cassandra had many hopes for this night. She hoped she would not die, or taken on serious harm that would cause irreversible damage. Any other verbal abuse, harassment, and general disgruntledness, she was planning on putting up with. One other hope she had was that she would be able to talk to Chase Harlow.

So far, miraculously, it hadn't been that bad. A group of pissed-off looking adults stood in one corner scheming, but the rest of them were at least polite. It was growing tedious to explain why she thought magical children should learn to use basic technology such as cell phones and computers. The older classes were going at a faster rate, as she felt they were behind in their studies, and the younger years were starting from scratch. She hoped she had time.

Cassandra found Chase Harlow on her self-designated "break" from schmoozing, walking the perimeter of the room with Jael in silence. She saw him just long enough to cringe visibly at his fiance, and walk over, waving to Austin.

"Hi," she told Chase, a mild smile on her face, "I'm Cassandra Locke, Austin's Muggle Studies professor." She held out her hand, slightly worried that Chase might see this as more of a blind date, and less of a serious conversation about Austin in his family. "I've been wanting to talk to you," she added.

              The exchange was painful, but it could have been worse. Cassandra, who had no problem with people calling her a liar, felt torn that Austin's brother was suggesting he send him off. That was a cruel, ... more

                Chase sighed heavily when Locke had finished making her speech. This woman was trying to turn this into something more than it was. Sure, she was right about Penny trying to make Austin unwelcome but ... more
