Prof. Isis Carter
Don't worry, I'm prepared for that.

.At the knock on the door, Isis straightened upright. She’d been a bit too slouched to be truly professional, trying to wait out the latest bout of nausea she was feeling. It’d been coming and going for a couple days now, so she was pretty sure she’d contracted some sort of stomach bug. Which was just super fun and only slightly panic inducing, based on the whole disease-that-led-to-a-quarantine-of-the-school thing that had gone on the year prior. Isis doubted this was anything similar, and she knew logically that she could hardly live the rest of her life with this paranoia, but it was definitely a thought that crossed her mind.

She was, however, surprised to see the source of the knock a moment later when her door began to open. Typically, the whole “come to my office if you need anything” bit of her speech to the first years was just a formality; it was rare that any of them actually came to see her, at least this early in the year. For Pecari House, that was automatically alarming. What the hell could have already gone wrong?

“Of course,” she answered kindly, standing up to welcome Evelyn in and gesture to the chair on the other side of her desk, all the while distinctly wishing her stomach was somewhere far removed from her body if this was the way it was going to behave. “Come on in. Is something the matter?” She certainly hoped it was nothing serious. A case of homesickness or something could be dealt with fairly easily, but Isis held a decided distaste for actual student difficulties. Not because she couldn't handle it - looking at her own life, it was more than evident that she could at least scrape by - but because it was always such a shame when a student was feeling negatively, especially one so new to the school, and so young.

        It was good that Professor Carter looked friendly, because Evelyn had just about convinced herself to forget the whole thing and leave. As it was, she smiled at the professor and made her way inside... more
