She smiled. Good. A hopeful start. Headmaster Grace gave Kim a small smile back, and allowed her to take a seat in front of his desk.

What surprised him was when Kim swore, She's a real bitch, after he mentioned Emma. Devon, aside from being delighted that there were other people out there as fed up as he was with snots like the Westbrooks, was taken aback by her vehemence. He laughed, a bark, almost, then shook his head. He really oughtn't encourage students to curse and punch one another. Still, "Yes, yes she is," he agreed.

With episodes like that, it would remain briefly under the Head of House's jurisdiction, and later fall to Devon if a student proved to be consistently violent or unhappy. He was secretly pleased he didn't have to rap her on the knuckles for fighting.

And he didn't want to put ideas into her head, should Michaelson be innocent. "Was he kind to you?" he asked, serious. "Did he threaten you at all? What did he say when the books fell?"

He was half-looking for a way to read if she was lying, half still fishing for facts. The more details he got, at any rate, would help when he had to discuss the matter with Rand himself.

        Obviously Emma Westbrook didn't have friends in the high places she thought she did. Kim planned to stay away from her for the most part from now on, but keep her in line all the same if she'd try... more

          Kim's answers were less satisfactory than her first one, but Devon was happy to have gotten that much. She looked a little confused after the last question, as though there could have been several... more
