Re: On the train: The Schoolboy/The Witch
"Mmmph, well," Aedan agreed with a little smile. He wasn't much of a witch, not now, not like this, but he still knew plenty of them, and plenty about them. "Have you met any other things that society at large has deemed to be a fairy tale?" He queried, gently. Some new about some beings, others knew nothing, and he laughed at the proviso that Hugh tacked onto the end.
"That's probably very true in this town. I'd wager that half the people you meet aren't strictly human. And that may be generous," he said conversationally, not at all perturbed by the fact that the percentage might be a great deal higher. Even the men in his family, if they were born human, didn't stay that way. The last male that was born human and stayed that way until his final death was a few generations back, and far enough that he couldn't immediately recall his name.
