She sits next to Darren in English.
"Neither do I till I see yours, I don't have it memorized."
"Yeah, same here. It would be really cool if I could just memorize everything, I could keep up with Darren!"
"Darren, if you have an eidetic memory and never told me I'm going to be irritated and fascinated in equal measure."
"I wish," he snorts.
"He is just better at school than I am. So I would need an eidetic memory to keep up. Or smartness points."
"It's a technical term," declares Savannah loftily. "Smartness points."
"I must not be smart enough to have acquired this concept."
"If you are smart, you get lots of smartness points. If you are not, you don't."
"How many smartness points do we have now?"

Savannah loiters, Darren and Bella proceed with magic lessons, they all eat pancakes (the blueberries are gone; there are apple slices and banana slices and chocolate chips available for those who don't want them plain), and eventually the twins are collected home by their dad.
The rest of the week passes much the same way - Bella and Darren being magic geeks at one house or the other, Bella memorizing rune flashcards and drawing charts in her spare time. Charlie announces that he's going to go get her a laptop while she and the others wander the Avalon, after he's looked in on it and learned how to get into it if he needs to.
