You shouldn't lie to people!

Drew shrugged at his comment about being cool dudes, and DJ laughed. “No one ever thinks their parents are cool. I meant like they don’t seem to be super embarrassing. Like I said my Dad makes Dad jokes. My first week of school ever he sent singing letters about how much he missed me.” It had ended after DJ had written Mom and she had forced her husband to stop.

The other boy asked if he was going to find out his form the Draco nodded. “Oh for sure. I’ll probably do it this summer. My parent’s one friend is an Animagus who turns into an Octopus. He said that the first time he ever completed the change he freaked out because he couldn’t breathe and I don’t want to deal with that.” His Dad’s best friend had been the one that suggested that DJ attend RMI. Jonas had been reluctant to send a kid to RMI. According to him he had no good memories of RMI and didn’t want the experience repeated. Uncle Riley said it was because Dad didn’t make friends he dated all the girls he made friends with and all his relationships had ended badly.

DJ watched as Drew lined up his shot. The other boy sunk a solid ball meaning DJ was to go after the striped balls. When Drew missed the second shot DJ stepped up and lined up a shot for a corner pocket. He hit put too much force into it, and the ball missed the corner pocket and zinged away. “Damn,” he said and stepped back allowing Drew room to do whatever he needed to.

The fourth-year nodded as Drew talked about living at RMI since he was four and how Aaron was into spell development. “That’s cool. My parents are Hex makers in the military, so I know how many books there are for spell development. Does Aaron ever show you the new spells?” DJ himself had cast some of his parents' Hexes. They used him and Evie to rank how difficult the hexes were to cast. Most of the spells DJ couldn’t produce even a little bit of the desired effect, but there had been a few he had been able to cast successfully.

“Remington hasn’t mentioned it surprisingly. To be honest when we talk it’s a lot about classes. I guess that's the whole joke about Dracos. All we care about is family and classes." DJ said with a smile. He didn't love being in Draco but that might because it had been his Dad's house and he thought he was more like his Mom then his Dad. Of course, he wasn't sure what house his Mom would have been in, but he figured she would be a Cetus or Lyra.

    “ That’s cool both seem like cool dudes. ” Drew didn’t know about that, but he shrugged affirmatively anyway. They weren’t the most embarrassing dads in the world (for example, Scott existed) but... more

        Okay well DJ was right, Dad and Aaron weren’t super embarrassing. Of the staff couples they probably did the least PDA, which was a relief. And they never did anything nearly as mortifying as what DJ ... more

                  DJ hadn't thought about how it would come off to Drew that he had taken Dakota's side. After all, DJ had heard her side first. The fourth-year figured Drew was sugar coating things to make smooth... more
