Suspicion

Andrew found Xander staring at the walls of his office.

"You know that look the girls get when they're up to something? Not the one where they snicker and nudge each other when they're trying to prank you. It's more like when they're watching the clock in anticipation of something."

"Who have you got at the moment?" Andrew ran through Xander's class list. "Um, aren't these two chemistry geeks?"

"Yeah. So?"

"Why didn't you break them up? When you get more than one in a class they start competing." The dull explosion of a toilet echoed down the halls. "See?"

Andrew brings me amusement.

Xander still needs to learn the little things, but experience does seem to be a great teacher. Or maybe it's the cleaning up of the aftermath that's the great teacher.

Ah, yes, I remember the day ... *ahem* Or so I've heard.

When I think of the things I did as a kid, they'd lock you up for it now.

Same here; it's a miracle we survived.
