Just interesting ones

Slate was off on a tangent about the teachers. Torn wondered briefly just what year he was in—along with the girl beside him. It was a little unnerving with her sitting beside him, doing nothing but eating. She hadn’t said a word to anyone at the table, but didn’t seem entirely focused on her food, either.

He briefly mourned the fact that Slate wasn’t in the same house as him, but felt a little more at ease with the other boy’s assessment of Winchester. And, he obviously had no idea who O’Locke was, either.
