I don't think I have that setting
Sat Nov 18, 2017 11:57

It was good that the older person wasn’t lost because Kit would have had to be a little bit judgmental about that and she didn’t like being judgmental, but they were super close to the rec center and Kit was pretty sure that the person had come from the rec center. Or maybe they just liked walking around the school in their swimsuit? That was maybe on option. Following Halloween, Kit had gone to a couple of classes in her dinosaur costume before Grandpa Garen had told her that she had to wear her robes to her classes so then she had stopped wearing her dinosaur costume. She still had it though. Grandpa Aaron made the best costumes! She had at least three plans to sneakily get him to help with cosplays that she thought would be better with magic. Of course she couldn’t let anyone else know because it was probably against the rules to go to a Muggle convention with a magical costume, but Kit was pretty sure that if she didn’t tell Grandpa Aaron what it was for, he wouldn’t ask. Marissa got stuff charmed all the time for her secret parties and she hadn’t got in trouble once. So either Grandpa Aaron didn’t know or he didn’t want to get Marissa in trouble by telling. Grandpa Aaron was nice like that, unlike Grandpa Garen who was the rules-grandpa.

“There are lots of other places to get into the passageways,” Kit said enthusiastically, bouncing on the balls of her brightly-sequined feet. “Like on the Quidditch Pitch, there’s an entrance in the rock wall! Grandpa Aaron says that the caretaker from a long time ago put it in. She was caretaker when my mom and dad went to school here so that was a super long time ago obviously because my mom and dad have me and also my big sister Marissa. Do you know Marissa? She’s already got a best friend but she’d probably be next-best-friends with you if you wanted. Because you’re new right? I’ve never been new to a school except for in kindergarten obviously but I went to Rock Creek for my whole time in elementary school but we got new kids sometimes because their parents moved to Colorado.”

Kit took a big, deep breath. Darby was skittering around the passageways at the edge of his leash. He liked the passageways a lot. Sometimes they heard noises like maybe there were spiders or something but they never saw them. Also, Darby might eat the spiders. Kit wasn’t entirely sure what Darby ate except for he liked the insects she fed him and he was okay with the mice-popsicles he got fed sometimes too, but she was pretty sure he waited until the mice weren’t popsicles to eat them because Kit was pretty sure Darby didn’t have a tongue and if he didn’t have a tongue how would he lick a popsicle? But popsicles usually weren’t furry, and Kit made a face at the thought of a furry popsicle. That sounded like a gross thing to lick. But also Kit would be grossed out if she ate a mouse any other way too.

          Wow the more the big kid talked the more Kit realized that she sounded really weird. Not in a bad way, but in a magical way, like a fairy. Except not like the fairies they saw in Magizoobotany or... more
