"Uh, well, I picked Sonic. So you can pick the next one," Andrew said.

Okay, Cole replied as he climbed into his car.

"Hm..." Ferris paused as he thought, then his face lit up. "I know where! When are you free?"

Clemence smiled to herself and headed to her class.

"Uh, tomorrow. I have a paper I need to work on before we all meet up. Does that work for you?" Andrew asked as he began gathering up his things to go to the library.

"Yeah, tomorrow's perfect. Does 6 work? I'll pick you up," Ferris said as he walked into his building.

"Yeah, that's good for me. See you then." Andrew smiled again, wider this time, and texted Clemence when he hung up: Hey, we need to all meet up. I got a witch's notebook.

I have some stuff to tell everyone too. When? Clemence texted back, perplexed by how he managed to get a notebook.

Sounds good, I'll let Ferris know. Andrew sent that text off to Clemence, then sent Ferris another message: We're meeting at Clemence's. Sound good?

Works for me! I'll let Sunny know Ferris texted him, then sent a quick message to Sunny relaying the message.

(I'm thinking we should skip to the talk?)

Cole helped himself to a bottle of water from Clemence's fridge, and sat down on her couch as he waited for the others. She'd seemed off at dinner, not totally herself, though Cole couldn't put his finger on what exactly was wrong.

Andrew knocked on the front door, adjusting the notebook under his arm uneasily. It seemed to weigh a hundred pounds.

Sunny chewed on her lip harder and harder the closer they got to Clemence's house, until she noticed it was bleeding. Frowning, she rummaged through her bag in hopes of finding a tissue.

(Yeee)

Clemence rubbed her arm absently, sitting on the edge of the couch. She almost pulled her sleeve up to check it, but when Cole came over she quickly clenched the edge of it in her fist. "Come in!" She called out when Andrew knocked.

Ferris saw Andrew at the door and jogged up to meet him. "That it?" He asked, nodding to the notebook as he opened the door when he heard Clemence.

"You okay?" Chris asked her, obviously concerned.

Andrew nodded. "Yep," he said. He wasn't sure what else to add. "Yep, this is it." He opened the door when Clemence answered, and smiled at her and Cole.

Cole frowned, having noticed Clemence's hand movement, but decided not to comment on it right then. Had she been staring at and fidgeting with her sleeve all night? "Hey guys," he said as Andrew and Ferris came in, and managed a small smile.

"Hmm? Oh yeah, yeah, just nervous," Sunny said as she pressed her sleeve to her lip. With her seasonal allergies having disappeared, she hadn't felt the need to carry tissues around anymore. "What are you thinking?"

Ferris nodded and smiled warmly at him as he went inside. He waved to Cole and Clemence and went to find somewhere to sit.

Clemence smiled at them and stood up. "Do you guys want anything to drink? I have water and...well, water."

"I'm thinking...I don't really know what to think," Chris admitted, pulling up outside Clemence's place.

"Then I'll take some of your finest water," Andrew said, smiling in a teasing way.

"Me either," Sunny said. She touched her tongue to her lip, and was only half surprised to find that it was already healing.
