It’s not that bad
Wed Jan 3, 2018 09:50

On the upside, Drew was able to punch Connor for longer than he thought he was going to be able to. He had only meant to hit him once, but then he had realized that Connor might hit back if he had the chance, and Drew didn’t want that. Someone would probably come break them up eventually, so if Drew kept Connor busy until then by hitting him, then Connor wouldn’t have a chance to hit back. It made a lot of sense, really.

He kind of noticed that there were other students in the Common Room reacting, but none of them did anything to stop him, so Drew kept hitting Connor. Weirdly, Connor wasn’t hitting back. He was just crying and kind of trying to block Drew, but not doing a super good job at it. Drew managed to hit him in the face (it was bad to hit people in the face, but Connor was the actual worst so it was worth it) and Connor did manage to start trying to hit Drew back. Luckily for Drew, Connor was bad at that too and didn’t land any punches that actually hurt, so Drew just kept hitting him. Not as hard as the first couple of hits but still hard enough to hurt a little.

The downside happened swiftly. Drew was suddenly in the air and he was about three thousand percent sure that Aaron was the reason, because that was who could get to the Common Room fastest and was able to do that kind of magic. As soon as he realized he was suspended in the air, Drew stopped trying to hit Connor. He didn’t actually want to fight more and it would probably make it worse if he looked like he still wanted to.

How dare Connor claim that Drew had started this fight?! Okay yes Drew had insulted Connor’s dad on purpose, but Connor had insulted Drew’s dads first. Drew was pretty sure that the other Ceti who had seen what had happened would back him up. He got along well enough with Huburt even if his roommate was the most boring person on the planet. Jessica Franklin was there too. She was giving Drew the stink eye like she really didn’t approve, but she would probably tell the truth if Aaron asked for an eyewitness account. Drew didn’t know whether everyone else had heard the conversation leading up to the argument, but he was pretty sure that most of Cetus had heard Connor use the first slur and completely sure that everyone had heard the second one.

“He deserved it!” Drew set his jaw defiantly. “He called me a,” Drew spat the word that Connor had called him, “and he called you and Dad,” Drew said the other word that Connor had used.

    It was about three seconds between the words leaving Connor’s mouth and Drew practically running toward him to hit him. At first, Connor was shocked. He had never actually been hit before, not like... more

        Aaron wasn’t exactly sure what he had been expecting when he asked the boys what had happened, but he was pretty sure that it was on the level of what Connor had said. Well, not directly - Drew... more
        • This was definitely not for the better - Connor, Wed Jan 3 11:58
          Connor was still crying a little bit but he was no longer actively being punched, so his tears were starting to subside, although his sniffling wasn’t. He was embarrassed to be crying in front of the ... more

            Drew did not land super gracefully when Aaron let the spell down, but after a stumble he regained his footing and obediently went to Aaron’s office. Okay so this wasn’t going great , but things could ... more
