Sara was in awe with the older student sitting next to her. It was a lot for the eleven-year old to take in during breakfast, but the Lyra nodded in agreement trying to seem cool. If she was honest, Sara didn't really understand the whole gender thing - no one had taken the time to explain to her anything other than there were boys and girls in the world -, but she had been raised always respect the people around her. So what if everything that Holland was telling her made no sense to the eleven-year old? Just because she didn't understand it didnt meant that it wasn't true.

She preferred to continue in another path of conversation. “It was probably bad for you.” Sara looked at Holland hopefully since she didn't want to make the older student angry at her, especially since it was a small school and Sara was relying on older students to help her out when it came to her studies.
