Isis Carter
I think I'm reading "S.O.S."
Fri Mar 30, 2018 11:06

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 impromptu ones, especially, formed an immediate knot in her stomach nowadays. So to that end, she was hardly excited for whatever was ahead of them.

Maybe she was just in a mood after a difficult and long day, but Isis did not appreciate how once again, Nathan was put on the spot. His discomfort was obvious, and she reached to squeeze his hand, having no other way to offer any kind of comfort right now and, well, anyone on staff who didn’t know about them at this point had definitely missed the boat. Not that they weren’t particularly obvious, Isis thought, but they also didn’t make efforts to hide their relationship in non-student spaces.

It did help that Daniel also chalked his own name on to his list, but it didn’t completely mitigate her annoyance. Honestly, she found the whole thing a bit ridiculous, although even she was too tactful to say so. Isis had no evidence to contribute or to refute to the claims, however, so all she could do was stand there in her own irritation. Why Nathan? Why was it always him?

She didn’t notice, keeping what of her attention remained on the person currently speaking - in this case, Professor O’Malley - but on the chalkboard, Nathan’s name abruptly disappeared, leaving a gap in the list of names.

        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
