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 scene in front of colleagues and students. That wouldn't be good under the current circumstances.

Jered shrugged at her change of topic question. He didn't really have an opinion on it. He was told he had to take on a class and potions seemed like the only thing he could do. He had been brewing them with his Nanny from the age of 5. And he had never officially graduated from Pitts so didn't know the advanced magic in Charms and Transfiguration.

And it'll be less work for you if they can cure themselves,' Jered replied after a few more mouthfuls. He took a gulp of water before turning to Sarah and looking at her with his serious gaze and leant towards her.

'You need to be careful this term too. If the Muggleborn students are a target, itís only a matter of time before you become one too,' he whispered into her ear. He didn't want anyone overhearing. No one could be trusted now.
