Claudia looked at him again and Connor hoped that he had made his intentions clear. He hated that he had hurt her with his actions - twice! - and he really did want to make it up to her. Of course, he didn’t have much of an idea of how to do that. But he did want to. But Claudia was smiling at him, just a bit, but smiling. And Connor felt relieved. Perhaps he had made his feelings clear after all.

Of course Claudia had been obligated to distance herself from Connor after his unseemly outburst and subsequent brawl in the Cetus commons last term. That only made sense - even one or the other would have been something that a well-mannered girl from a good family would not want to be affiliated with.

Things had already gone better than Connor had previously hoped. “Do let me know if there are reparations I can make for my misunderstanding of your intentions,” he added. Connor really did feel bad that he had misinterpreted the situation with Claudia, and he hoped to make it right.
