"They are! But they have very different mannerisms and it is easy to tell them apart." Maira comments, then decides to add: "Fernanda is the doctor and oldest, Felicia is the nurse and middle one, Trix is younger of the trio and the pilot."

Permalink

"Nurse and pilot again, huh? Plus doctor, I like them already, what are you gonna be?"

Permalink

"I don't know yet. I honestly feel that I can't out do them no matter what I try. Felicia also does random volunteer work on top of nursing."

Permalink

"Oh, come on, you've gotta think bigger than that. I'm gonna be prime minister when I grow up."

Permalink

Maira giggles, but it is pretty clear she is giggling with Pru instead of at Pru.

"I couldn't be that, the United States elects Presidents."

Permalink

"I knooow and you just barely now got women's suffrage, it's awful. You can be president though! I checked and there is definitely no rule that women can't!"

Permalink

Maira actually daydreams about it for a moment, the shokes her head. "I don't think I would like it. Maybe I could be some kind of scientist."

Permalink

"Scientists are cool too!" Prudence agrees cheerfully. "Like more the kind of scientist who takes stuff apart to find out about it, or the kind who puts stuff together to do cool stuff?"

Permalink

Maira thinks for a moment, then with a self-satisfied smile. "How about both?"

Permalink

"I like you! C'mon okay you've gotta show me the way, we're gonna be late for class."

Permalink

"Sure! I will show you around!" Maira says with a smile that isn't an armor anymore.

Permalink

Prudence trots happily after her, book-bag bouncing at her side.

Permalink

They manage to get into Maths just a second before is too late.

Permalink

Otherwise known as "exactly on time"!

Can Pru find a seat next to Maira?

Permalink

Yay! She dumps her bag with a clatter and seats herself, plopping down her book on the desk in front of her, open to a page that's comparing the jawbones of various theropod species.

Permalink

Maira is momentarily distracted when she catches sight of the book, the turns to pay attention to the teacher.

Permalink

Pru is ... probably paying attention. While reading her book. Yeah. That's a thing.

Permalink

Maira actually is! She seems the type that gets very focused in class. Or at least in Maths.

Permalink

Pru is very focused on her book! She does raise her hand once to answer a question, and she's right, so that's something.

Halfway through class she passes a note to Maira. The handwriting's quite legible, in a big loopy primary-school sort of way: do you know if any kinds of birds hunt in packs???

Permalink

Maira doesn't answer any questions unless a teacher asks.

For a moment it almost looks like Maira is ignoring the note, but then she writes it a replies and passes it back with quick discreet motions while the teacher isn't looking.

Not sure. Don't know.

She also crossed "pack" and drew an arrow pointing to the "flocks?"

Permalink

Oh yeah. Flocks.

Pru eats the note.

Maths! Dinosaurs! Managing not to actually get in any trouble all class!

Permalink

Maria blinks when she notices the note being eaten but doesn't make a comment.

Class can go by without incident and then the bell rings.

Permalink

Pru gathers up her books. "Hey, I forgot to ask, d'you play a musical instrument?"
