    Wednesday was sitting in the library dressed in her blue and pink flannels, debating if she were up for attending the Madness tonight while leafing through a book. She'd put in a few appearances this school year, but for some strange reason she found herself getting distracted when she'd visit. She couldn't quite put her finger on the reason why, only that ... that she didn't know. It'll come to me eventually; it always done.

    Today had been a good day. There were meetings and class and study into the afternoon ... her meeting ... the only down side had been when a 3rd year almost set a classroom on fire while practicing Incendio. Really, she thought, and her knew her face couldn't disguise her testiness. How is it we have 3rd Years who can't master a 2nd Year charm? Wednesday hear the sound of her mother "cluck clucking" her tongue ... never mind that. You teach your way, Mamma, I'll teach mine.

    There was someone standing at the entrance to the library. They cleared their voice and Wednesday smiled. She didn't need to look up from her book 'cause she knew who was standing there. Even his "Ahem" has an accent ....

    "Why, Holoč!" she said, her bubbleyness overflowing into her voice. "Are you here to see me? I'm ... charmed." She shut her book as he sat. "And how was your afternoon?"

    Holoč hadn't yet changed into his night clothing; he was debating getting in a quick nap and then apparating home to his wife and daughter, if only for Saturday. With the field trip coming up I'll be tied up next weekend, he thought, and the Dance is not long after that. After what happened this afternoon he had a desire to see his family, in particular his daughter. It won't be long before she's off to school....

    "My afternoon was much as discussed." He sat back, wishing for a small glass of port. "They stopped by and asked for a space--as you anticipated. And I gave them one--" He sighed long and loudly. "And I gave them a little warning, as you asked...."

    Leaning forward, Holoč said, "They are such a job to watch as they go about their studies. You can see how full of each other they are." His crooked grin appeared a touch sad. "They're only children: I'm worried we may damage their spirit."

    Wednesday grinned while crossing her legs. "They're all children, Holoč: that's why they're 1st Years." She chuckled. "And for some they'll never grow out of that ....

    "Look, Holoč, I'm not a hard ass--this you know." She cocked her head to one side, staring off into the corner. "I'm the last person who wants to break another's spirit--especially those who have it in droves." Tapping her fingers on her knee Wednesday added, "But, we all answer to a higher power now and then, don't we?"

    Holoč nodded. "It was a couple of students who complained to the Headmistress, wasn't it?" He'd only heard rumors... something about kissing and Wednesday allowing student to fire off spells at each other....

    She simply nodded, her face mostly expressionless, but Wednesday's thoughts were more to the point. Yes, and those little witches are totally on my Shit list! But she wasn't going there, not with Holoč. "Kerry shot off a controlled Incendio," she said, "and froze one of the girls with Impedimenta ...."

    Wednesday leaned forward again, her voice dropping into a conspiratorial tone. "But, Holoč, when Kerry did Reparo!" Her eyes took on a dreamy quality as she visualized the scene. "He took Annie and kissed her and ... then repaired that jewelry box!" She slowly sat back, eyes still a bit unfocused. "Never mind the skill: it was so romantic! And I'm sure he gave her that box when the got back to the tower--"

    She dangled a slipper off the end of her foot. "Stuff like that makes me wish I was 12 again, just so I could find someone to sweep me off my feet!"

    There are some who say you are still 12, Holoč thought, but he liked Wednesday enough that he kept this thoughts to himself. "I'm constantly amazed by the stories." He scratched his clavicle, stifling a yawn. "When I discovered where they'd come up with their Fire Bush Seeds... for 1st Years they are more inventive."

    But his thoughts returned to the Lower Tower Dungeon. "When I said they instructors were watching them... poor Annie. You should have seen her face."

    "Oh, I can imagine." Wednesday had very good visualization abilities, and while she might not see as well as Deanna, her imagination could fill in gaps very well. "But it's probably how you said it, Holoč--" She smiled back at him as he frowned. "Not your fault, honey; sometimes you can't help but play daddy."

    She folded her hands across her crossed knee. "Annie, to me, is the sort of girl who possesses a very wide range of emotions. If you told her 'Instructors were watching' I can guess she's thinking all the worst things are happening..." Just like I felt when I was in school, she thought. "She's like that because she has passion. So does Kerry, but his is a different sort of passion--"

    Wednesday's hands began flying about as they often did when she got excited. "This is what Mathilde doesn't get at times: you need to let students be themselves! What happened in class yesterday happened for a reason, and we have to acknowledge it." She forced herself to calm before saying, "I brought them into the advanced class for reasons other than talent, Holoč. We've a couple of other 1st Years who have talent, sure, but Kerry and Annie... they have maturity. They know how to control their passion; it doesn't get in the way." She raised a coy eyebrow. "Not much, anyway. It's besides the point. They're going to have to do some catching up, and they already know it. That was what made them ask for a spot, not because they want to make out.

    "You know--and I told Mathilde this--I don't want to keep them contained. I don't want to cripple their spirit: I want to set it free." Her hands were in motion once more. "I want to turn it loose and see where it takes them. Isn't that what we're suppose to be about?"

    Wednesday stood, smoothing down her nightclothes. "One of these days those kids are gonna rule--and I wanna be able to say I helped." She put her hands on her hips and smiled at Holoč. "I'm goin' to the Madness. You wanna come?"
