Angela ‘Vi’ Summers breathed a sigh of relief as she followed her kids out of the Lightman Group. Who would have known that taking a group of future Slayers/Slayers siblings out of school for a couple of hours to find out who kidnapped the class pet could go so wrong so fast?
She had never felt so helpless, not even on the day that her Watcher had been slaughtered in front of her. The slayer within her was screaming at her to get outside and get rid of the threat to the children she was responsible for, but she knew that this was not something she could take care of, and her kids needed her where she was. So, she devoted herself to keeping them calm and listening to every conversation her enhanced hearing could pick up, and in a building with mostly glass walls that was pretty much all of them.
The fear incited by the helplessness of her situation was driving her up the wall, and the only thing keeping her calm was Loker. He bumbled at first, struggling to communicate with the kids, but eventually he got into the swing of things and kept them, and to some extent her, distracted.
She had heard when Oscar learnt the truth, and waited, panicking to hear how they dealt with it. She relaxed minutely when Doctor Lightman started speaking to the boy, and then more fully as she heard Oscar’s response.
The way Loker dealt with Oscar’s reaction to the truth cemented her estimation of him, and she had enjoyed the song he helped the boy write, which served the dual purpose of entertaining the kids and teaching them the lesson they had come in for today.
As she was leaving she paused in the doorway and turned back and grabbed him, carefully so as not to hurt him, and planted one on him, ignoring the cheering of her students. Finally pulling away, she slipped him her card, turned and left, shepherding the kids out of the building and back towards the Council School, where there were some very anxious parents and guardians waiting.
