He was already in there when she arrived. Sliding her fishbowl onto the desk next to his, Vega dropped into the seat beside him.

“So you’re back, then.”

He rewarded her with a blank stare.

“What?”
juliet, the dice was loaded from the start
and I bet, and you exploded into my heart
I can’t do everythin’ but I’d do anythin’ for you
I can’t do anythin’ ’cept be in love with you

“You’re back,” she said again.

“Dorset put posters of your face all over the common room. And in huge letters, MISSING: JEREMIAH SMALLWEED. But you’re back now. Obviously.”

“Yeah,” he agreed. “Obviously.”
I just wanna go out tonight and make my baby proud
“—boy, who’s your baby?”
“girl, if you don’t know by now—”

“So where were you, then? Apparently, you were gone for a whole week. I didn’t notice, but Dorset certainly did.”

“…No,” she agreed, slightly disappointed.

“I suppose it’s not. But I’d want to tell someone, if I were you. It must’ve been lonely, being missing for a whole week.”

He opened his mouth, but Mrs Galanis jumped in to start the lesson before he could tell Vega Nettlebed that he didn’t care what she thought.

(She was right, though. It had been lonely over there.)

“…Pax Fellwater and Orion Alricsson…pushed you into a Vanishing Cabinet.” Ella repeated slowly, studying him from her deckchair.
you were always sure of yourself
now I see you’ve broken a feather
I hope we can patch it up together

“...Yes.”

but I said, “dancin’ is a dangerous game.”

“I see. Well, that certainly explains why you missed all those classes last week.”
schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness
and I have to sit down for a while

“No?”

She gave him a quizzical look.

“…Right.”

She flicked her wand. A box of Fudge Flies landed in his lap.

“And how are you feeling now?”
caterpillar in the tree, how you wonder who you’ll be
wish you may and wish you might, don’t you worry, hold on tight
I promise you there will come a day, butterfly, fly away

“Cyrus?” Ella poked her head through his office door.

“I need to talk to you.”

Cyrus had not been expecting her.

That much was evident from the fact that he was currently dozing in his chair, the medical textbook he was supposed to be reading having long since fallen from his grip to the floor below.

He jumped, startled awake. “What are you doing here?”

WHEN I COME TO CALL,
SHE WON'T FORSAKE ME

“It’s nice to see you too.” A faint smile twinkled its way up to her eyes.

“I need your help. One of my kids — well, not one of my kids, but, you know, a kid that I feel responsible for told me today that he got swallowed by a Vanishing Cabinet.”
