"Well, the Dean's assistants should call you soon enough, I guess."

"Yeah. I... You could probably also talk to my father, you might be worried about my head, but he knows my preferences pretty well. For - obvious reasons."

Permalink

"That's a good idea. Whenever you're ready to tell him about your sister and everything, I guess."

Permalink

"Yeah." He winces. "I... Really shouldn't procrastinate on it."

Permalink

"Are you going to call him or go visit, where does he live?"

Permalink

"Call, he doesn't live in Drofnfjord. He's in Seldalr."

Permalink

"Okay. Well, don't let me stop you."

Permalink

"Mhm." He pauses, hesitates, and then settles for patting her shoulder. And then he heads off to retrieve a phone and make a phone call.

Annie has a book in her bag. She pulls it out, in case eavesdropping turns out to be redundant or difficult.

"Hey, dad. - No, actually, there's - it - something happened, dad."

And he explains the something. Annie already knows what the something is.

"Yeah, I'm - I'm okay," he assures. "She's - nice. Yeah, if she wants. Annie? Do you want to talk to my dad?"

"Sure." She collects the phone. "Hi, Aldaras's dad."

Permalink

"Hi," says Aldaras's dad. "So, uh. The love thing."

Permalink

"The love thing. It's pretty weird. I'm dealing. I'm going to do my best not to harm him."

Permalink

"Good, I'm glad. He's a good kid. What are you in college for?"

Permalink

"Undeclared at the moment, the magic department seems unfriendly to the concept of privacy so probably medicine."

Permalink

"Yeah, it's - pretty bad about that. Why medicine?"

Permalink

"Research. Cure cancer or something, I'll have to find out more to know where I'd specialize best."

Permalink
"Good for you. You - sound pretty decent."

You know. For a brief phone call that is not the interrogation he wants.
Permalink

"I'm glad. ... Is there - anything you need to know about him?"

Permalink

"...Is there anything that it would be best for me to find out in partial form as opposed to a complete infodump because I'm his keeper now?"

Permalink

"... Complete and utter romantic."

Permalink

"He is, you mean? I wasn't sure how much of that was the necklace."

Permalink

"He is, yeah. As far as I can tell, it hasn't screwed with him at all. Just the - love thing."

Permalink

"That's good to know, then, thank you."
