You just need some good drugs.

“They made you Head of Quense?” Her brother’s profound disbelief of the new information had been a bit daunting. She saw no reason why she couldn’t be head of a house. Although she hadn’t been a Quense student while she was attending school and most of the students were afraid of her… she had been doing well enough with her PR job. She’d been told so. Though she was sure the only one who would think so was Devon, who alone knew the lengths she had been going to get people to lay off of Cassandra.

Right now, somewhere in America, a powerful politician coward in his room afraid to come out in fear that everything he owned just happened to be cursed. And a pureblooded “concerned” mother could speak in nothing but vowels and hand gestures.

Ah well… she thought she had done well. That was all that mattered.

Annet sat looking out over the students in her usual Annet-fashion. She had ordered herself a plate of salad but had not touched it, having gotten distracted by the conversations going on around her. She sat with her chin in her hand, staring over Devon’s shoulder across the way to the opposite wall, a small smile on her face.

Barely paying attention to their words near the end she cut in, speaking for the first time since entering the hall, her tone of voice musing.

“My adopted father was number 42 one year…” She flicked her dark eyes to Devon’s face first, then gave a little grin to Sarah. “And I met Everett Bones, number 12 that same year. I think he killed his daughter and son in law on their wedding day the following year.” She pressed her lips together and hummed lightly. “Tragic.”

She sat up straight, picking up her salad fork. She stabbed a few leaves of lettuce on to it.

  • And hate. Don't forget the hate.Devon, Tue Oct 5 7:24pm
    Sarah's interruption had an effect like warming up frostbite. Initially Devon sank into her defense, so grateful the most he could do was keep a face as though he didn't care. Then it began to... more

      • I have some back in my officeSarah Mason, Tue Oct 5 11:37pm
        There it was again. Surfacing in the worst way. Sarah's perfectly annoying habit of getting into awkward situations. She'd just made it worse. She put her drink down. "That is not what I meant," was... more
        • Consider me your new best friend, then!Eve, Tue Oct 5 11:59pm
          Annet Anderson spoke up, and added her own zest and spice to the subject at hand. Eve welcomed it wholeheartedly, munching delightedly on a piece of cucumber. Perhaps this was just the opportunity to ... more
          • Hey bestie, let's do lunchDevon, Wed Oct 6 10:12am
            Eve was enjoying this too much. Devon wanted to simply leave. Sarah was digging him deeper in his grave with the Shovel of Good Intentions, Annet was joining in for the sheer fun of it (probably) and ... more
            • I read that as Beastie, how odd. Annet, Wed Oct 6 5:09pm
              "Well there... doesn't seem like a great list to be on, does it? Enough to drive you to insanity." Annet, after taking a bite of her salad and swallowed added cheerfully. “Or everyone is just... more
              • So which one of you is Beauty?Sarah, Wed Oct 6 9:58pm
                Sarah was perturbed by Annet's behavior as much as she was by Eve's. She felt like Alice at the Madhatter's tea table in Alice in Wonderland, where everyone around her was totally off their rocker.... more
