“Venn diagram style. I like it,” Sammy nodded along. Ben Pierce was a fun kid, and she’d almost forgotten that they’d get to be in classes together this year, with him and his cohorts joining the Intermediates the very same year in which she and hers prepared to depart from them. She liked Ben a lot, honestly, as she liked all of her teammates. (Well not the same way as all of them, as she liked one in vastly different ways than the others.) He’d just always seemed like such a kid--while they were only two years apart, being thirteen versus being eleven as they had when they’d met seemed like a huge difference--but here they were now, in the same class, even if it was just this year.

It was probably something that Gia and Jax at least had found weird about her in the beginning, but hopefully by now they were trained to a raised open hand. Ben, as a fellow athlete, would certainly require waaaaaaay less coaxing.

    So Professor Ammon had him pegged already. Ben shifted a little guiltily in his seat, fully aware that the 'Easy O' was exactly why he was here. His folks would be happy to see him get consistent Os... more
