Money, dear boss.

There were many things Gray was good at. Keeping track of smallish objects was not one of them. He was sure he had had a letter he’d received yesterday in his pocket this morning, but now he did not have it, and so he was retracing his steps. He was reasonably sure he had dropped in the faculty lounge between breakfast and his first class, and so at lunchtime, he went back there again to look for the letter.

A quick glance did not immediately reveal it, which was a disappointment and left him stumped. If it was not here, then either an elf had gotten it, a student had gotten it, or it was somewhere in the masses of paper that constituted Gray’s room or Gray’s desk. All of those options failed to appeal. As he had no chance of digging through all the papers in his room or his desk in the space of lunch, however, he nodded to Selina, who seemed to be taking some refuge in cake, and was trying to think of another excuse when the Deputy Headmistress spoke on a different topic.

“Not today – so far,” he amended. “But we had, uh, a bit of a – fuss yesterday. Jozua Sparks…I think he tried to ask Lily Spencer out, and, you know, adolescents, stress, it’s a Ball year. Or that’s what they tell me, anyway. Nothing happened to me, though,” he added to round off this comment and confirm that Selina had had it worse, with fire and pink hair.

    On the plus side, immediately after she’d finished with the intermediate class, it was lunchtime. On the downside, wine was not a socially acceptable option at lunch in the middle of the week.... more

        • Gray frowned slightly in thought as Selina described the situation in her room in more detail, and her suspicions that Jozua was perhaps lying about the source of his trouble. He had seemed very... more
          • “Hm,” Selina frowned, as Gray explained the sparks. “That does seem more like something he’d do by accident - I mean, I can’t imagine him wanting to do that to Lily. Hopefully not to most of his... more

                “Wait until you teach the children of the first set of children you taught. That’s a super fun one. Wait until you have colleagues born the same year as your own children,” Selina retorted, when Gray ... more
                • Excellent. I’ll gather the cavalry. - Gray, Fri Feb 23 20:10
                  It took Gray a moment to catch the implication in what Selina was saying, and then he looked surprised. Due to his glasses and none-too-distinguished chin, he knew this was an absurd look on him.... more
                  • And wine. Wine would be good. - Selina, Fri Mar 2 20:25
                    “Thank you,” Selina said, deciding to take what Grayson had said as a compliment. When that sort of remark came from children, it usually meant that they hadn’t considered their teachers might be... more
