Nathan Xavier
Hoping not to pull a Georgia
Wed Mar 28, 2018 12:27

Nathan sighed as he got another owl about an emergency staff meeting. The last one went so well. At least this one wasn’t so urgent that he had to immediately leave the students he was currently in charge of. That was probably a good sign.

Later, though, when Daniel Nash pointedly looked at where the hot spring had been, he shifted nervously and began to suspect he wasn’t going to like this one much either. Yep. Called out. “Erm, maybe?” he admitted, squirming under the eyes of his fellow staff members for basically claiming responsibility for the sabotage in the staff lounge. He wanted to insist he hadn’t done it on purpose but Daniel’s phrasing made that redundant. And the sooner they stopped talking about this, the happier he’d be.

Daniel did move on, and the fact that Nathan’s name was plastered third on the list of troublemakers was at least mildly mitigated by the fact the Daniel added his own to it as well.

He didn’t really want to implicate anybody else, especially if it meant drawing attention to himself again, but this was an important discussion and the staff needed to know what he did. Without anybody writing or saying anything, more information was added to Daniel’s chalkboard: Georgia Kirkly (went invisible), Zevalyn Ives (heated the classroom).

Well, there. Nathan slouched down further in his seat, feeling no further need to add anything. He supposed he could still bring up Joe’s rudely talking teacup, but as he had no clear indication of who was actually responsible for that, he decided it wasn’t very helpful.

            There were certain annoying factors involved with being a teacher. One such annoyance was having to grade a slew of homework, but that could be what compensated for by assigning less than the average ... more

              Everything linked by a fever - the nasty fever which was going around the school. Fabulous. Gray had already been worried about catching such a fever from all the students, and today he happened to... more

                Isis didn’t mind staff meetings in previous years. After the rather eventful start of term they’d had this year, however, there was a solid possibility of a radical change of opinion. Fairly... more

                  Aisha got up from her seat, moving around the outside of the semi-circle, to where Grayson was seated, rubbing his eyes. “Hey, let’s have a look at you,” she said softly to get his attention, placing ... more

                      “I’m sure they’ll realise. I think they get the idea, anyway,” she assured him, when he started worrying about the board. She wasn’t going to stick her head back into the meeting to add that. “And if ... more

                        “I don’t think that was me,” said Gray when Aisha confirmed he had, in fact, seen what he’d thought he’d seen in there. He managed a half smile. “I guess you don’t have to worry about job security... more

                          “Indeed. And here was me worrying I might be bored,” she agreed, when Grayson made a remark about job security. Ok, in truth she was getting slightly bored. It wasn’t like there was a huge variation... more

                    Tarquin wasn’t especially pleased by the idea of an after work staff meeting. Danny had looked mopey about it when he’d flood home to tell him he’d be late, which meant that they’d be at odds when... more
