Professor Xavier
And Another One

After the first day of classes, an elf popped into Cleo's room. He was a different one from the ones that had taken turn following her about and sitting in on the intermediate classes, but she might have recognized him as one of the ones who frequently worked closely with Professor Xavier and the Gardening club in maintaining the grounds.

"Snappy brings Miss Cleo a letter from Professor Xavier," he told her, and held it out toward her. "He wishes Miss Cleo well."

The letter, if she wished to accept it read as follows,


I understand you may want to keep to yourself for a little while until you get a handle on what you learned this summer. But if you wish to do some solo garden maintenance in the meantime, we have a bit of an infestation of gnomes near the fishpond. Snappy or one of the other elves can show you the way sometime if you're not sure where that is. There's a fair number of gnomes out there, so some elves might be of some help to you with the task, too.

Professor Xavier

          Parker had waited a while before responding to Cleo's letter, hoping that he might run into her somewhere like he had a lunch. He was so much better at talking in person with someone than writing, or ... more
