As Professor Xavier disappeared into his office after introducing the new to Teppenpaws to their house (Raine could not, after all this time, really find it the substitute home it was promised to be), Raine followed. The door had barely shut behind him when she knocked, and came in. She had been wanting to see him all day. But of course, he had been busy with the orientation, and then at the feast she couldn’t talk to him.

The precious piece of paper was clutched in her hand, and she held it out to show him, unaware that the school received their own copies and that he might already have seen it. “Our mom wants to put them on the wall, mine and Kyte’s - he got one in Defence too - but I said I had to show you first. I passed two! And look, not a single T!

“Thank you. For… for last year. I couldn’t have done it without you.”

        Raine’s smile grew, and she blushed furiously as Professor Xavier heaped her with the kind of praise she had never in her life expected to hear from a teacher. He was proud of her. She had worked... more
