Nod. Yeah. I - don't know your family that well but I guess if you do trust them it would be good to have some help with, uh, stuff. 

Permalink

They're - I do trust them. And I don't think it's a good idea to try to do big things without them, you need - well, grownups, for one thing, and also people who are good at money and bureaucracies and stuff.

Permalink

Yeah. That all makes sense. I guess I should meet them, then. More than I have.

Permalink

Oh. Yeah, that makes sense.

I have in fact not spoken to your father since he dropped you off. So. Uh. I guess if we're going to do complicated stuff we could plausibly talk to him about it ever.

This weekend?

Permalink

Yeah. Okay. 

And now I should actually go to school. Love you.

Permalink

Love you.

She goes to school. She spams her attempt at mass heal, whispering under her breath. She checks whether she can still hear Connor from her math class.

Permalink

She can! He's way more interesting than math class.

Permalink

Oh cool. It occurs to her that if she watches him a lot then she might get magic even faster, so... she might do that. A lot.

He takes Zana out to play in the forest, and builds a fortress in the bushes with her, and thinks about Karen talking to his family - he's worried she doesn't like them - and thinks about the book they're reading, and wishes she weren't at school, and thinks about kissing her, and wishes he had magic, and wishes Zana weren't going to be sent off to school in a year, and wonders if she's listening.

Permalink

I am listening, yeah. You're cute.

Permalink

Maybe Zana will not need to be sent off to school because by then they'll have stopped needing to pretend to be normal. Maybe she will have a superhero costume to fly around in. 

Permalink

Maybe so. Someone's gotta teach her math and science and history and stuff, but I guess maybe we could just read her lots of books? And give her her own when she can read by herself?

Permalink

Well, you could do that. 

Permalink

Yeah. And, like, it'd be fun. But I have very little idea what else I'm going to be doing in a year.

Permalink

"Hey, Zana, do you wanna go to school or do you wanna do weird stuff that's not that?"

Permalink

"Can I go to school for THREE DAYS?"

Permalink

" - sure. Why?"

Permalink

"I want to see it but I don't know if I'll like it enough to go for more than that."

Permalink

"That sounds really good. Okay. Three days of school."

Permalink

....I guess we can try that, sure.

Permalink

She's very clever.
