Ah, composition. Bella is going creative writing and needs to nail this one. But she expects to like it. The classroom has arched ceilings, for some reason, hard-to-check rafters and detailing up there, so she inches into the room very cautiously, ready to backpedal, waiting for backup classmates before going in more than a few steps.

Basira arrives at the entry in the middle of a group of people who collectively thought passing period was a great time for a bathroom stop—admittedly they don't seem to be late, so maybe it could become an organised stop.

"Something wrong?"

"Don't like the ceiling, wanted a big group. This is probably big enough though."
