Only if you judge me by mine

Summer had been 82% awesome for a lot of reasons and a lot of them were weddings. Or almost-weddings, which was close. Aunt Jessie had almost gotten married but then she had gotten baby dragons that needed a mommy dragon and it was Jessieís job to be a mommy dragon when baby dragons needed on. Like that was her entire job. Kit thought that was amazing. She wanted to be like Aunt Jessie when she grew up. Mom and Dad had never-not-once let her go visit Aunt Jessie. Drew had gotten to go, but when Kit had asked Dad he had laughed at her, which was mean. Mom had explained that Drew and Madeleine got to go because Aunt Jessie was their bio-mom. Kit didnít understand why that meant they got to pet dragons when she didnít, but that was how the cookie was crumbling.

Aunt Alissa had told them that she was getting married which was really cool because that meant that Kit would officially and for real have a cousin! His name was Sawyer and he was kinda too serious but he took dance from Aunt Alissa which meant he couldnít be too too serious, right? Kit was sure she could make him into a top-rate cousin, anyway, and that was what mattered. She didnít know if he had other cousins, but Kit did think that if Sawyer did have other cousins, she should get to have them too. You could never have too many cousins!

Now what Kit had thought was going to happen was that Marissa and Danny were going to say they were going to get married too. Danny was great. He was cool and had great boots and watched Disney films with them, or even anime sometimes (Kit was pretty sure he didnít know the difference even though she had explained it like a squibbillion times). Danny liked to kiss Marissa a lot even when Kit made grossed-out noises or threatened to tell Dad, and Dad thought that they needed a dragon to guard Marissaís bedroom thanks to Danny. Kit didnít really understand that last part but anything that meant getting a dragon in the house was awesome in Kitís book. So she had been really disappointed when Marissa had explained that her and Danny had broken up.

But now it was the Opening Feast at RMI and Kit had a plan.
She was a second year this year which meant that except for Marissa and probably Drew, nobody was really watching out to make sure she went where she was supposed to go. And Kit wasnít in the same House as either one of them so she made sure to go and sit nicely by the Lyra fire for a little while, while she thought they could be looking at her. Then she was going to stand up and leave her fire, but it was time for the new Headmaster to start talking. He didnít talk for very long, just long enough for Kit to cheer for people being head students and prefects and stuff, and then the house-elves appeared and Kit sneaky-snuck over to the Cetus fire.

Danny had a little sister whose name was Claudia, and Kit knew her from classes from last year but theyíd never worked together. Claudia seemed really smart but she was friends with the boy who had called Drew a mean name last year so normally Kit wouldnít have approached her but it was an Emergency.

Claudia was dressed really pretty, which made Kit feel a little bit plain. She had decided to dress up as a tree today, with brown culottes and a green shirt. It was only her purple-sequined Converse high-tops that stood out, at least in her opinion. But even if Claudia was really pretty and grown up, Kit knew it was important for her to talk to Claudia. It was her mission.

ďHi youíre Claudia right?Ē Kit asked, then moved on without waiting for verification. ďMy name is Kit and - well my name is Katherine but everyone calls me Kit anyway, we were in classes together last year but also youíre Dannyís little sister and he was going to marry Marissa but now heís not and we need to fix it and you have to help me!Ē

                Good grief there was no predicting what would happen next in any situation where Kit was involved. Claudia was suspecting that any sort of logical reasoning was going to be a complete waste of her... more
