"I've just spent the best part of an hour avoiding many misfired spells," she told him with a heavy sigh, feeling far more grateful when a cup of tea floated over and landed delicately in front of her. "I'm sure I have a few singed hairs at the back..."

She ran a brief hand over the back of her head, trying to work out if her hair had indeed become any shorter before she shrugged. Tea was more important. She sipped at it and felt much better, finally returning the man's earlier smile. "At least it's the weekend now though! Do you have any plans?"

      • Drink tea, it will straighten you up again.Grayson Wright, Fri Nov 23 21:42
        “Ouch,” said Gray, somewhat redundantly. “Remind me never to come in your classroom without a Shield Charm up.” DADA was a subject he was glad not to teach, he thought. There were incidents with... more

          Tabitha gave a small laugh and then tried desperately not to think of the stack of marking that was waiting for her in her private quarters. At least she had the weekend to get through it all -... more

            Well, at least he wasn’t the only one without real plans for the weekend. That was something. Though he suspected it might be characteristic of the sub-species of humanity he had joined here –... more
            • Indeed.Tabitha Hawthorne, Fri Nov 23 22:39
              Tabitha felt a relief when Gray did not comment on her slip up or push the matter - the reason why, she didn't know nor particularly care. At least he wasn't going to be spreading it around the... more

                How did he keep essentially admitting to his old life to colleagues? Did he actually want to discuss that? It was pointless to do so, but here he was. “I was in the original scripted material stuff,” ... more
                • Firing up the old braincells.Tabitha Hawthorne, Sat Nov 24 20:21
                  It was clear by the short nature of Gray's response that the Charms professor didn't particularly want to talk about that part of his life. That was fine with Tabitha and actually made her feel a... more
