"...okay."

She pokes the phone one.

Permalink

There are numbers.

Permalink

Which she can dial! She calls the first person on the list, mouths 'Thanks', at Dr. Xavier, and goes to complete the call in her room.

Permalink

The first person she talks to is tentatively intrigued!

Permalink

How tentatively?

Permalink

They're going to want her to demonstrate her abilities before they commit to anything at all.

Permalink

Well, sure. Her access to transportation and her ability to find locations is currently not great, but Annie would be happy to meet and show off the otherworldly magic if this person can come to her or if they can meet where Dr. Xavier works and Annie can tag along with her or whatever.

Permalink

They're sure they can arrange something.

Permalink

Cool. Annie thanks them and consults the time to see if she can sneak in another call without being rude.

Permalink

Yep, at least one more.

Permalink

Ring ring hello this is the otherworldly magic person Dr. Xavier may have mentioned.

Permalink

Dr. Xavier did mention!

Permalink

Cool so here are some of Annie's otherworldly magic properties (she omits the "instant love" one) and here's why she wants to be a sorcerer.

Permalink

He nods along and can't promise anything right now but promises to have a look at his schedule.

Permalink

That's very kind of him.

And now it's probably too late to call a third person. She will do that tomorrow when Edie is at school.

Permalink

Well, some of these people are likely to be teaching class then, but not all of them.

Permalink

She can leave messages.

Permalink

Voicemail is convenient like that, but it might be hard for her to get a response if she doesn't know the number of the phone she's using.

Permalink

...yes, that is a complication. Uh. She leaves one awkward message suggesting calling her care of Dr. Xavier and then does not repeat this mistake.

Permalink

And, as these things are wont to go, Edie comes back from school.

Permalink

Edie mulls something over for a brief second, and then asks, "So how was your day, sweetie?"

Permalink

Eeeeeeee~ "It was fine but it turns out it's hard to leave a voicemail with a borrowed phone the number of which I don't know and I love you."

Permalink

"I love you too. Ooh, yeah, that sounds annoying, which phone were you using?"

Permalink

"Your mother's."
