Again, Kaye swore near her, but this time Myfanwy noticed that Kaye wasn’t swearing at her, exactly. Just in her presence. That was somehow less offensive than having her yearmate swear at her directly, and she was willing to let it pass. More important, anyway, was that apparently Kaye hadn’t actually even known about the brownies. Myffi had just accidentally told her. Ah well, she knew about the alcohol anyway. Might as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb, or whatever the saying was where you were already in trouble so you might as well get in more trouble while you’re at it. Also it definitely wasn’t appropriate that Kaye called Nolan ‘the peg leg’, but it was kind of funny that she called him a traitor for not sharing his brownies. Or, more accurately, Myffi’s brownies. “Well, next time, I’d loved to be included,” Kaye grinned.

Myffi had definitely decided that there wouldn’t be a next time. So why wasn’t she telling Kaye that there wouldn’t be a next time? She didn’t think Kaye had drunk much - if any - of the booze, even though she knew where it was created and stored, which could be out of respect for Ruben’s produce, or because she just didn’t like it, or maybe because she didn’t want to be caught, but Myfanwy would be okay with Kaye helping herself every now and again. She wouldn’t mind sharing brownies with her, either, except that was really breaking even more school rules than she was breaking already. She totally had guilt about that, but then Kaye said, “You are the most interesting Head Girl the school has ever had,”. Myfanwy blinked. That was a surprising thing to hear, but not as surprising as the next thing Kaye said, which was definitely the nicest thing she’d ever said to Myffi: “I don’t think I gave you enough credit before. Now it totally makes sense why you and Ruben hang out.”

Surely nobody was completely immune to flattery, so it was totally fine that Myfanwy couldn’t help smiling. It was totally excusable that she thought maybe Kaye wasn’t so bad after all, and she’d gotten along okay with Holland, and well with Ruben, and fine with Nolan, who were all friends with Myffi, too, so it made sense that they could probably be friends: it had just taken them a while to get started off on the right foot. It was totally understandable, too, that Myffi found herself saying, “You’re not so bad, either. And if I do get any more brownies - and I’m not saying I will,” she hastily added, “- but if I do,” she smirked, “I’ll be sure to include you.”

Honestly it kind of sounded fun, getting Cledan to send her packages to work or the post office, smuggling brownies into school under guise of innocent baked goods, having an illicit substances picnic behind the Quidditch stands with Kaye and Leo and Nolan. Actually it sounded really fun. “I guess I’ll still be the most interesting Head Girl if they find out everything I’ve done and kick me out,” she mused idly, tipping her cup back to drain her juice.

    “Wait, shut the eff up,” Kaye blinked her heavily lined blue eyes in complete surprise. “There were brownies? And you shared them with Nolan and the peg leg didn’t even save me a bite? The traitor!”... more

        Kaye really liked the idea of falling into this bizarre friend group. Leo, Myffi, and Nolan weren’t exactly something that made sense, but it didn’t feel wrong. They all meshed together in their own... more
