Be patient

Sarah nodded, trying to allow herself to be convinced while she knew this would mean she'd need to know Cassie's schedule and be keeping a watch in case something happened. She was still rather tempted to go over and demand from Eve what she was thinking, allowing this to happen. Sarah understood the council was sticking their hands where they didn't belong. They'd sent her an owl with an attachment of protocol they expected within the Mercy Wing. She was already doing what was on it and more. It was beyond infuriating, never the less, when she needed to be spending her time preparing for whatever the term would bring.

Jered spilled on himself and commented on the children issue. A casual comment. It usually was. She sighed, holding her hand over the spot and removed it wandlessly--it was one of the things she could do wandlessly-- and sat back.

"Yeah, good thing," she said, less than half-hearted in the effort. It didn't bother her when they'd first started to date. She wasn't ready for children. Even now, she knew she wasn't ready for it. But in any conversation they'd had concerning the idea, Jered was clear about the idea that he didn't want children. Now... now she wasn't so sure about that. She considered the fact that she'd always wanted children. At first, she figured he would come around. She knew where it stemmed from. Jered had grown up amid the abuses of a pureblood home, filled with expectation that, when not met, turned him into a person to air frustrations on rather than a loved son.

She tried to be patient with it. In truth, she didn't want to end things because of that. And the way he was with Austin... and her niece and nephew... Sarah knew there was a change of heart in there somewhere.

She ate her food, looking down at it pensively between bites. That sick feeling was coming back and she wasn't sure it was this flu (or whatever was plaguing her) at this point. She turned to Jered, a smile that she was forcing on the best she could. "You don't even want just one?" She asked in a whisper. "Some of them are sweet," Sarah said, looking out at the student body.

    Jered sat in his spot and looked out over the students as he waited for Eve to begin her speech. He had an uneasy feeling in his stomach. His eyes swept the room, locking onto certain people he... more

        Jered sighed as Sarah vanished the stain. He could have done that, with his wand. He had to get his act together about using magic more, especially with purest eyes around this school. But then it... more

          Sarah gave a half-hearted smile and turned back to her food, not wanting to answer his questions. Did he really believe that? Maybe. Probably. He'd been like this any time they talked about it. Sarah ... more

            Jered waited a beat for Sarah's reply but when none came he stuffed the fork of food into his mouth. It was probably for the best she didn't answer. They would just get into a fight and then cause a... more
