OOC – this is actually set on Starr's first day (a couple of weeks into term) so not sure how much she'd have seen him around!


“Yeah, outside,” he nodded, when she queried it. “I mean, I know the outside's kinda faked here but something green to look at would be nice right now.” Starr would never have described himself as a claustrophobic person – he was used to being in some really tight little spaces.
