I decided that he needed to get some sense knocked into his head

    "They're kinda nice. And terrifying," says Chloe.

        "Understatement of the century," mutters Jermaine.

"What's that about finding spells?" asks Scorpius.

Permalink

"That is a very good way to describe them," Felix tells Chloe. "I didn't want Trevor to interrupt with a dad joke about using a finding spell."

Permalink

"I take offense! My jokes are not dad jokes, they are mildly-drunk-uncle jokes."

Permalink

"Aside from history, I can't say they are much worse than expected. The worst scare we got... in a class, was when someone found a dead husk beneath something and someone else was trigger-happy enough to throw an iron bar at it and hit the wall."

Permalink

"A dead husk... of a person?" asks Chloe, looking queasy.

    "Well, couldn't be a mal, they'd just dissipate or get eaten," says Magnus.

        "People get eaten too, anything that was well-hidden enough to not be eaten could be a person or a mal," argues Scott.

Permalink

"Mal... or we assumed it was a mal until now."

Permalink

"It looked really dry, and we just decided to get it out of the room. The person who found it did that, and we went back to business. It was probably too small for a mal."

Permalink

Fenris thinks, then decides to take a bite of toast instead.

Permalink

"This is definitely not a mealtime conversation," decides Chloe. "What classes does everyone have after lunch?"

Permalink

"Sorry, it definitely isn't. And we've got history."

Permalink

She grimaces. "Ew, history after lunch is the worst."

    "At least it's not shop, if you fall asleep in history nothing bad happens but in shop you burn a finger off," says Scott.

"Shop keeps you awake!"

Permalink

"We take turns paying attention."

Permalink

"Teamwork for the win! Though, I would take extra shop time if I could."

Permalink

"We have not slept during class for longer than a second, but mostly to not create the habit and grind the little mana that grants you."

Permalink

"I guess that makes sense," says Chloe, but she still sounds dubious.

Permalink

"We couldn't get a better time with the three of us together. What do you guys have after lunch then?"

Permalink

    "New York has Language Hall," says Chloe.

        "Except this nincompoop," amends Magnus, hiking a thumb in Scorpius's direction, "who's cramping our style and doing his own thing."

"My schedule is optimized for mal hunting," says Scorpius primly.

Permalink

"That is definitely more exciting than after lunch History, that much you have to admit."

Permalink

"I figure it is more useful, given your ability to get mana from it. Which, how does it work?"

Permalink

    "You told them about it?" moans Magnus.

"It was relevant," shrugs Scorpius. "And anyway to answer the question I got a work period after lunch now so I'm going patrolling."

    "Patrolling!" wails Magnus.

        "You're gonna get a rep, Magnus," says Scott.

Permalink

"If it helps, the school was full of rumors about that ability of his."

Permalink

"Of course, they are hard to believe. I was assuming it was just the kind of exaggeration that you guys didn't want to dismiss because it was useful or something."

Permalink

Fenris frowns. "It is also obvious when he fights."

Permalink

"It's only obvious when the fight is that long," he says, shrugging.

    "Well it's not the secret we want to be public," sighs Magnus, massaging his temple. "And what do you mean a rep?"

        "Nag," shrugs Scott. "Nag nag nag. You're not his mother."

"Thank any gods there are for that," murmurs Scorpius.

Permalink

Fenris decides to not pursue what he was thinking. "I think it is pretty much public by this point? Does this mean I can't ask how it works?"
