Have fun? Of course!

Presley went back to her own sculpting soon enough, and her attention was with other students again as Sarah followed Cassie's lead, their hands crossing each others and padding down areas together as they started to make their own little creation.

This wasn't an activity for wands. Not for Sarah at least. It was too nostalgic and she preferred this the way she grew up doing it. There were a couple other activities that were the same. Cooking, for one, was done without magic. She'd grown up talking with Grandma Mason as they baked and cooked and made all sorts of food and desserts. Mostly the later. It seemed wrong to take shortcuts now.

Of course, there were a couple ways to help things along that she didn't mind a little charm here or there. The snow was still falling on them, and would for the next ten minutes probably. Then she'd expand the snow around them, making sure they had plenty to work with so they didn't have to hunt it down.

Just as she was doing this the first time, Cassandra initiated conversation. She gave a smile, wondering if Devon had put her up to this. Walking back from the poker game, she'd been quiet, both Devon and Mark with her, though she didn't talk to either of them unless asked a direct question and even then quiet, minimal answers. Devon, she was sure, was considering having her committed. He suggested therapy often enough, though he didn't push too much.

"My life isn't much to talk about. You'd probably be very bored," Sarah said. She started on a corner, building it up with soft powder beneath her gloves and patted it solid. "Students, students and more students. Jered and Austin are coming with me to my sister's house for Christmas." She paused. "If we get out of here in time. Austin really misses California, so we'll be there for New Year's."

Sarah moved, making tracks with her knees as she made a new spot for herself with plenty of space to continue their walls. "How about you, Cassie? How do you like teaching still?"

    Cassandra grinned over at Presley and waved. They were doing their magic-type tricks, those little flourishes and bits like Devon liked. That extra little spark. But a snow fort? Oh yeah. Cassandra... more

        Annet didnít mind snow. She liked the crunch of it underfoot, and the way the sky looked when it snowed. It reminded her of some sort of post apocalyptic world raining ash, and never getting fully... more
        • What kind of snow do you mean, Noah?Cassandra and Jael, Sun Jan 9 6:13pm
          "Yeah, I really have," Cassandra answered Sarah. "I've had some doubts about whether I should be doing something where I can see a more immediate impact, but the longer I'm here, the more my world... more

            Cassie gave Sarah hope. She smiled at her response, thinking if just a few more wizards felt the same way this world much just get a little better. "Good, I'm glad," Sarah said. "It wouldn't be the... more
