Howl and Flora
Oh dear.
Fri Oct 8, 2010 10:36am

She just heard? What did that mean? Flora was disappointed that they didn't actually teach mind reading, and shrugged. "It was pretty bad," she said, before going back to her food.

Howl stared at Kim, unimpressed, until she mentioned Headmaster Grace and Nurse Mason getting married. He burst out laughing and said to Kim, "Your terrible!" then, shaking his head in disbelief and still grinning, he looked up and saw Madison Connor leaving the table. Good, he guessed. He knew there was friction between her and the Robeless; definitely Kim, anyway.

Then there was Jael and a boy who looked like he was in first year. He knew that Jael sometimes repeated what people said, so he just smiled at the boy - who introduced himself as Reece - and said, "I'm Howl."
"Hi!" Flora said, happy to see someone who was in her own year. "I'm Flora."

    The scene next to her had started getting out of hand when Kim Baden had sat down. Madison Connor had turned to Reece and given him a look. That was Kim Baden, the look said, the girl who stabbed... more

      • Oh, my dear!Kim, Fri Oct 8 12:21pm
        Kim broke out into a grin without meaning to, her entire face flushing right after. He must have known she was just making it up, just to say something, but she'd made him laugh. She looked down at... more

          Kim Baden didn't look scary at all when she was trying not to laugh, Reece thought. So much for Madison Connor's promises - but he had to take what she said with a grain of salt, he remembered. The... more
          • Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaa!Howl and Flora, Fri Oct 8 12:59pm
            Howl's face broke into a grin again when he saw Kim was grinning and trying not to laugh. She didn't look so like she had last term any more. Flora said nothing, because she didn't know who the... more
            • I meant Howl, of course.Kim, Fri Oct 8 3:14pm
              Howl's renewed grin was almost contagious enough to break down Kim's line of defense, but thankfully, Jael and Reece kept on with the conversation. Of course Grace wasn't marrying Mason. Mason was... more
              • AwwwwReece and Jael, Fri Oct 8 6:24pm
                Okay, now Reece knew for sure it was Kim Baden. He felt a little self-congratulatory for guessing, but there was no one there with whom to share his triumph. In a way he liked her wry sense of the... more

                  "Well I guess that's one way of looking at things," Flora said. It was weird imagining people with clay insides, and the images of them in her head kept getting squished by big rocks. She eyed Jael... more

                    A thought struck Kim at the same time as a memory. She used to hang out on street corners with various people, or sit with homeless men selling trinkets while the pedestrians walked by. There was one ... more
                    • Okay, well don't get mushy nowReece and Jael, Sun Oct 10 12:30pm
                      Reece was in the uncomfortable position he was an 11 year-old who had started getting crushes on girls over a year ago. He didn't dare tell anyone. All his friends still didn't like hanging out with... more
