“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 real human people and not beings that had simply morphed into existence for their convenience, and then who melted away when no longer in use, like the MARS room, or went back into their little boxes at the end of the day. From a fellow adult, however young a one, she thought it was more likely to be a compliment, and Selina was someone who had taken a great deal of care of her appearance. For all that the lotions and potions could not make her actually look young any more, she did look good for her age.

“Oh, I’m pretty sure when I was your age, I spent all my time bemoaning how old I felt. And all the years in between. And I’m sure that, somewhere down the line, when I’m teaching the grandchildren of the first children I taught, I’ll look back at this and wonder what I was complaining about. I think it might just be human nature. Well, maybe a certain set of us anyway… I don’t recommend it though, it you can at all help it.

“Maybe,” she nodded, when he said it might be Pecari too.
