“Jozua? And Lily? It was them that were playing up in my class too. I mean, I didn’t catch Lily doing anything but she was certainly finding it all very amusing,” she explained, rather overlooking the fact that, at Lily’s age, she possibly would have found a teacher with bright pink hair amusing too, or that amusement at that did not necessarily warrant suspicion. “I’m not sure I’d quite buy Mr. Sparks’ excuses. I don’t remember this sort of thing happening last time. Was it fire again?” she asked. Jozua had always been a bit more fire-prone than the average student, but she also had the sneaking suspicion that Daniel was right and that wasn’t entirely an accident. The fact that he had always done it… It worked as a point for both sides, but it certainly didn’t enhance his credibility as a fine upstanding student.

“I did wonder whether…. Cleo,” she sighed, feeling bad for suggesting it, but it certainly seemed like something strange was going on. “She wasn’t that far away. But she’s not responsible for my hair, that’s for certain. So, unless she’s causing the chaos and then someone else is taking advantage of that to try and pull a prank… I suppose we just keep being vigilant.”

      • 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
          • When Selina began glancing around, Gray was momentarily nervous, worried about what was going to come up now , but it just turned out to be semi-serious (at least he hoped it was only semi-serious)... more
            • Seems reasonable - Selina, Fri Feb 23 10:25
              “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
