I hear a sheep knocking on my door.
Miss thought, her eye opening as she tapped her fingers patiently on the tea table, a small smile on her face. The witch never had to lift a finger when Relica was around, even if she wanted to. The poor girl would gracefully move on her own accord, or how Miss told her to move. If Miss asked her to jump, Relica would ask how high. That was not, however, a simple summary of their relationship; it was much deeper than that. Upon seeing her servant enter, she gave an earnest smile, the dimness of her room seeming to envelope Relica's body. Yes. As Miss suspected, the woman knew exactly what she wanted, and how she wanted it, even if Miss changed it up a bit. Such was a bond between a master and servant; their
bond at least. It was an expected result with witches
, at least. On her normal days, Miss usually took Earl Grey tea with a normal amount of sugar, but why she wanted extra was a mystery even to the one who presented it. On her sad days, she took Chamomile with no sugar at all. And on those happy yet contemplative days of hers.. That was when she took Chai with a fair amount of sugar. Today, though, today she had no idea why it was so different. This was how humans were, and Miss was no human.
Greeting her servant with a tilt of her head, she chuckled. "Good day, Relica. Of course it is to my satisfaction; it always is.
" A thoughtful eye drifted to something in the corner of the room, before back at the servant slowly, her mouth still curved enigmatically. "Correct. More than less, yes.
" Miss parted her lips to say something, but the pre-thoughts found the best of her, and she closed her mouth, staring up at Relica. "Have tea with me, my friend. I want you to tell me how the students are doing, and what they are like...
", A questioning, glowing eye perked up to her servant, and she smiled mischievously, "And I want to know how you're doing, too.
Did she maybe, possibly, probably look like an idiot waving over to Adelaine and Rose every time they came in the lunch room to eat every day? Yep. Most likely. But hey, the fact that they were coming over and sitting next to her in the first place proved it was working. As the proper, older girl approached, Esther cold not help make her eyes bulge at the very sight of her. Bulge in a good way, of course. Urgh, Adelaine always carried herself with grace and perfect poise, but really, Esther could never spot any sort of confidence or pride in her eyes. Not that that was a bad thing; humility was one of the seven heavenly virtues, of course. Then again, it bugged her more than it should have. Just as it did when the girl slowly sat down and prepared her lunch. Every. Freaking. Day.
Not that that
was a bad thing either, but ugh, it truly confused her more than it should have as well! The people back at her home would probably poke her with a stick had they ever found her. Clearing her throat, Esther stabbed a shrimp, and so comfortably placed it in her mouth.
"Oi, it's quite the opposite, ya know!
" Esther insisted stubbornly, stabbing another shrimp and placing it in her mouth with a small grin. "I can't understand the way you think, but, oh well, guess we were raised on different streets if ya know what I mean. C'mon, you must want to rush out of class! It's awful boring.
" Esther tried to reason, but she knew it would never get to her friend with the fancy name. And, speaking of friend, Esther finally saw those red eyes staring both of them down. The girl smiled in welcome, not even having to wave to get Rose Ether over to them. This girl was always stuck in her own thoughts, or would have totally been made fun of back at home for her eagerness to learn. Ah, but she was cool. Whenever Esther needed help on the homework they assigned, she would be the first to ask Rose. And, if not, Adelaine. Giggling, Esther winked. "Welcome, my friend.
" She greeted with a thumbs up, and was about to take a sip of her water, but took note of "The Boss" approaching them. Relica. Urgh, she was usually in charge of the chores, but Esther knew the woman had a burden placed off of her just last week when Esther herself was performing them.
But yay, she spoke of a present, and presents were one of Esther's thing in the world. The girl gave a toothy grin, practically giddy with excitement. "Sweet! A present! Thanks, boss.
" The young witch thanked merrily, and, when Relica had disappeared, another witch had made her way to them asking for Rose. Gah, why weren't there any daring kids like Esther in this school?! Just smart, goody-two-shoes girls with a lovely reputation. Raising an eyebrow, she watched Miss Endora's hair bounce around as she spoke, and even though Esther paid no attention to what she was telling Rose, she grew agonized when the woman took her bottle of water! Her
bottle of water! Well.. someone's
bottle of water. "H-Hey!
" Esther whined, pouting a bit as she watched the woman gulp it down, but thankfully, not enough to make it disappear. Crossing her arms, she looked down at what the woman sighed, and groaned. "Yes, m'am..
" The girl mumbled, and when the woman disappeared, Esther glared at the bottle of water, before taking another sip.
"Whatever! Not my fault I was.. you know, dying of dehydration.
" Esther grumbled, and then gave a light-hearted chuckle, finding the situation sort of funny. Oh, well.
