The pranks around that school continued, the one with the chairs had been the one that had put Andy out of commission for a while. She iced the chairs to the floor during that day, but they continued to try to escape, at least until she was able to make the chair acting like real chairs and not like some monkeys in a zoo. She was sure the culprit was a Spencer, she just couldn’t prove it, no one could since everyone was affected by it, as far as everyone was concerned it could have also been a staff member that wanted to shake things up a bit after the Quidditch match that sent two students to the Hospital Wing in critical condition, one at least was already out, but didn’t seem to be good enough to play in the upcoming matches.

The staff room was empty, and Andy liked it when it was. She opened a window to let some wind flow in the room, but all she felt was a hot breeze in her face, no matter how many years she lives there in Australia, she was never going to get used to that goddamn weather. It was hell, it was awful and more importantly it wanted to cook her alive, and she didn’t like the whole concept of being cooked.

She took a seat on a nearby sofa and opened a book. She could have gone to her old room but what would be the point in doing so? She could regulate the temperature and relax a bit more, but miss out on the sunlight? She wasn’t a vampire scared of it, about to combust whenever the sunlight touched her skin, she just didn’t like when it tried to roast her, almost like a sacrifice to the Gods. She shrugged the idea and opened the book to start reading, she hopped she could at least finish it sometime this week, she had been dragging it for days.

The sofa was perhaps a bit too comfortable for Andy at that moment, shortly after opening the book, and starting to read, her eyes started to close, at first she would wake herself up, but that wouldn’t last long, it seemed that both her eyes and head were too heavy and soon after she started to drift away into dreamland, falling asleep on the couch, eyes half open while she was almost drooling herself.

Moving back home and taking up the teaching position that his grandfather helped get him hadn't been where he expected his life to be, but there were some nice things about being back home. Tallygarunga was more or less just like he remembered it, including the pranks, and in some way, it was nice to have something consistent, something he could depend on to never change.

It still felt odd being a professor, a position of authority, a position that was supposed to be an example to students. He did his best, though his best was a marginal effort on most days, like not smoking around the kids or drinking directly out of a fire whisky bottle while teaching class, that was more or less his effort. It wasn't as if he didn't like children in general, teaching them was an entirely different thing. He was pretty sure karma had a part in it, how awful he had been as a student at times towards the other professors, and now here he was a professor himself.

The pranks of the day had amused Rhys, whoever had been the perpetrators were certainly good at making sure there wasn't anyone of obvious guilt. He yawned and headed to the staff room, heading straight to get himself a cuppa. He smirked when he saw Andrea already in the staff room.

"Anyone figured out yet what student or students pulled today's prank?" Once the tea was poured, he took out his flask and topped it off with a bit of whisky, and then slid the flask back into his pocket.

Andy was having a somewhat pleasant dream about her and her friend Evelyn, a smile popped up on her face as she continued to be pulled by it further into her sleep. Being a somewhat light sleeper the moment the door opened and made an awful sound she opened one eyes, mumbled some incoherent words, mostly likely insulting the culprit of such sound, the one who had stopped the dream from moving forward, but at least she knew she had the real deal, and upon seeing Barrows, she opted to keep her mouth shut, their bets were far too amusing for them to stop over a few insults.

“If it isn’t Professor Barrows.” She spoke as soon as he entered the room. She crossed one leg over the other and closed her book completely, storing it on her side. “No, I’m betting it was the Spencers, it was childish, it had to be them. The Sturts would have pulled a smarter prank.” The hard thing about figuring out the real culprit was that the kids never snitched and half the time they didn’t even know who had started it. They were like zoo animals, the Professors were the keepers and they were definitely losing their battle, even some Professors were in it too, with their enjoyment for pranks.

“Who do you think it was Barrows? Got any specific Spencer on your mind?” Unfortunately, Andy didn’t know many of her students’ names outside class, at least not by memory, in class was always easier. “But more importantly, how were classes today? Same old? Like monkeys in the wild creating havoc?” her class was slightly different than his, the kids were able to destroy more things and potentially hurt each other, in his, the worst thing that could happen was letting a crystal ball fall on their feet.

Rhys grinned and laughed, of course Andrea thought it was a Spencer, that hardly surprised him. Though as far as childish went, from his point of view that was most of the students, Spencer or not. He drank a bit of his tea, then added a bit more fire whisky.

"I don't know about childish, all the houses were affected, which means either the perpetrators were quite clever so that no house would be left out and lead straight back to them, or they don't think very highly of their fellow housemates." He paused, he rather wished he had an idea who'd done the prank, but he hadn't gotten anywhere, granted he was only trying to figure out who did it so he could find out first and then win a bet with Andrea. He shrugged, maybe he could pretend like he had someone in mind, though he didn't, and he was tired so he just shrugged it off instead.

"Monkeys would probably leave less of a mess, might actually be easier teaching monkeys now that you mention it."

Spencers were always destroying things, it had to be a Spencer behind all that, and if it wasn’t well, they shouldn’t even be in the house they were in. These damn kids trying to make people’s life harder than it is already. She watched Rhys from her seat, still thinking about the dream that involved her friend, weird, but pleasant to say the least. “Whoever did it didn’t want anyone to know probably…” the prank could have gone wrong, but then again, as much as she thought the kids were stupid, some were quite smart, even in the circus house.

“Pretty sure just didn’t want it to be traced to them, or is several people working together. The past few days have been somewhat…gloomy.” At first was the murder, then the explosion and then the accident that landed two students in the Hospital Wing, whoever planned it probably wanted to light up the mood and they managed to do it, but also endangered a lot of students in the process as well.

“Can argue with you there. Do you think if we turn them into monkeys, they’ll be easier to teach or will just start throwing poo at us?” Andy spoke, trying not to laugh at the situation and mental image of turning students into monkeys and watch them roam around school as such. “I’d rather not have my classroom filled with poo.”

Rhys shrugged for a moment, soaking in Andrea's words, even if he'd never planned to teach there was one thing for certain, there was rarely a dull moment at Tallygarunga. Sometimes he felt like it possibly even riballed the constant drama and chaos of Las Vegas, especially the last week or two. His grandparents were calling him every day lately, worried about him, though not coming right out and saying it, always some other excuse for their call. He tried to promise his grandmother he'd try to make it home for dinner, but he wasn't sure if he was going to deliver on that promise or not. Not that he lived far, he just rarely felt like eating with his grandparents, despite the fact he loved them dearly, he didn't love spending tons of time with them.

"Perhaps there's some inter-house cooperation going on, a few kids from each house. I love a good prank as much as the next person, but I'm determined to figure out who, not to punish them of course, so I can win my bet with you." A bunch of monkeys, he wasn't sure about the throwing poo around bit though, might be fun to see all the students as monkeys, but Andrea was right, it would probably cause more mess and trouble than it was worth. He chuckled as a different idea popped into his head.

"No, not monkeys, we should turn them all into sloths, that way no poo throwing and they'll move slower and be easier to deal with."

He could be onto something, it was common people from different houses to get along, but the two main houses who could easily pull a prank like that were the Sturts and the Spencers, while the Flinders were a smart house they were too passive to even consider such a thing, and they were too nice and sweet, they wouldn’t want to hurt anything. The Bourkes could be in on it, they did enjoy practical work and pranks, well, pranks were more practical than theory. Should she go with the knowledge she knows of her house? The Sturts weren’t the prankster types, but they could come up with something just to mess with the Spencers and catching everyone in the process.

“You know, you might be onto something. I too would like to know who’s doing this, but mostly to ask them to stop, I’d like to teach a class from start to finish for once.” Did Andy like pranks? Absolutely, she loved them when she wasn’t at the end of it. Did she like playing pranks on others? Debatable, she liked to create chaos and then watch as she can leave completely unharmed.

She didn’t agree with a lot of people, but it was right there that she actually agreed with Rhys, turning their students into sloths would be easier, and it should be a perfectly acceptable punishment. They wouldn’t be running around like wild animals, they’d be easy to hoard in one place, and unlike monkeys, no poo. “Sloths work, but aren’t they a bit too big? If we do snails, they can all go into the tank.” Obviously, she couldn’t turn her students into any animals as a form of punishment, but it didn’t hurt to talk about it, didn’t hurt to dream about the endless possibilities of having a quiet classroom without something getting broke.

“You know, I bet one day someone is going to play a prank where everyone gets turned into animal and I’m not sure if I’m going to like the outcome…”
