I meant Howl, of course.

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 holding hands with the new Quidditch coach up at the table, and Grace was drooling over Miss Anderson like always. Kim had just said it, just to say. Nothing meant, nothing implied. . . just letting a string of interchangeable words leave her lips.

Jael's answer was weird though. Like some kind of wannabe crackhead poet. No more reds. Okay. Well that made about as much sense as the fact that magic existed. Kim shrugged at Howl and Flora, but Jael wasn't looking at them, anyway. She was probably thinking about blood. Or more likely, nothing.

But now Reece actually wanted to trace the rumor back to where it started. Maybe he'd been a bad one to ask in front of. If he was Madison Connor's brother (likely), then he was Head Grace's nephew. Instead of answering, Kim quickly shrugged, and threw the conversation in the most unlikely direction she could think of. She was getting cocky, that was the problem, like what had happened back when she'd first met Cosar and Arlis and ran her mouth of so much, they'd decided she was the girl for them. She turned down the table to face Jael again, saying, "I figure since Seth's still here, we should stick around each other this year. Just in case I start mysteriously stabbing Abby again, you know."

    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

      • 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

              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
              • Can't help it :]Howl and Flora, Mon Oct 11 3:00pm
                Howl nodded and smirked slightly when Kim mentioned Headmaster Grace, which was nothing compared to the sudden and weirdly loud laugh that came from Reece. Howl jumped slightly on the bench and then... more
