Consider me your new best friend, then!

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 really get to know the staff, the people she had brushed off with an absent wave of her hand—she had really underestimated Annet, and poor Sarah’s words were getting a bitter edge to them with Eve’s help. Honestly, both women near her were doing a fantastic job tormenting Devon. It obviously wasn’t intended on Sarah’s part, and for Annet…well, Annet probably didn’t have any ulterior motive to her input, but Eve couldn’t have wished for better company. Devon was literally surrounded by the least tactful people imaginable. Cassie could have remedied the situation, but Eve was happy to note that she and Rand were becoming fast friends and completely oblivious, or completely uninterested, in the conversation at hand.

“A pity, yes,” Eve put in, “that so many of those people are less than savory characters. However, this whole thing has been great publicity for the school,” Eve added, looking over at Annet understandingly; the school rarely was shown in a good light, and the fact that Rand was mentioned as a new addition to the staff did redeem some of Devon and Eve’s past indiscretions. Harper Ravenscroft and Jillian Summers wouldn’t be showing their faces for, hopefully, a long while.

“Yes, Devon, it’s probably for the best that you didn’t quite make it.” Eve nodded over at Sarah. “All that unaccustomed fame and prestige would get to most people’s heads.” She tried to stay away from the subject of Rand letting it get to his head. He had thrown her a few less-than-pleased glances during her speech, and obviously wasn’t enjoying his success nearly as much as Eve.

    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

        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

          "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

            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
