No one really talked to Noklie anymore, not after Rue and Sansa had taken the courtesy of telling absolutely everyone about his little outburst in the middle of the werewolf chaos. Half the first years gossiped about him, and the other half treated him like a ticking time bomb. Eolande was the only one who’d sit next to him in science class and he pretended this didn’t bother him. After all, the green haired girl was nice- though she had been forlorn after being told she couldn’t bring snakes to class anymore.

She could hardly count how many of those Gardner-Harper children she’d seen, or the Murdochs, descendents of their very own headmaster.

They were easy enough to teach, anyway. A bunch of eleven year olds hardly compared to her more advanced chemistry or biology students whom she had just finished with. She didn’t teach physics, that was taken care of by the second science teacher, but she imagined that would be much more difficult than teaching basic earth sciences.
