For a given value of 'control' roughly equal to 'NOPE'
Fri Feb 23, 2018 05:46

Joe’s main enemy was the headmaster? Wow. That was hardcore. She did recall hearing a rumour that Joe had punched the man once, but had dismissed that as being completely wild and crazy. But perhaps it was true. Still, Headmaster Brockert deciding to mess with both her and Joe because of something several years back made about as much sense as… well, any of today, where apparently making sense wasn’t vital part of things, but she still very much doubted that was what was going on.

Georgia flinched slightly as the cup merged back together, but as it didn’t start laughing at her again, she actually felt slightly better about it not being broken, and then Professor Xavier made his presence known and continued tidying up her mess. Oh. Oops…

What happened?

His tone was gentle, and she was glad it was their own Head of House, but she still felt slightly inclined to panic under the scrutiny of a teacher, having just yelled and destroyed school property. Well… sort of. It was undestroyed now, so maybe that was less of an issue. But she had yelled and thrown things, which was neither good nor prefectly.

“Uh… yeah. What Joe said, more or less” glad that he’d gone first in trying to explain, “Like… I just came to talk to him, and then his teacup- but it wasn’t his fault,” she added, not meaning to link Joe to the guilty party, “the teacup started calling me-” she blinked firmly. She was not going to add crying in the middle of Cascade Hall to the list of horrifically embarrassing things that had happened to her this year. “Like, Joe said,” she repeated, feeling he had said everything far more neatly and more like a reasonable human than she was going to manage. “Uh… sorry for breaking it,” she added.

“Me neither, specifically,” she shrugged, when Joe mentioned his lack of enemies. It was one thing to think that Jozua and Lily wanted to mess with her and another entirely to take that accusation to a teacher. “I mean, I doubt the... cliquey ones like me,” she said, meaning the snooty Purebloods but not quite sure that was a term she could use in front of a teacher, “but it seems a bit random that they’d start picking on me now. They never have before.” And the cup had known things that she didn’t think other people knew…

    Joe thought, he really did, but he honestly could not think of anything he had done recently which would make another person consider him an enemy. “No,” he said. “Unless you count the Headmaster,... more
