One of the students had given her a headset as a library fine, it wasn't comparable, no, but it had bought the child a few more days to find the book before she found it herself. The strap felt odd running under her chin, but she certainly couldn't wear it over her head as the manual suggested. Luckily the microphone was adjustable and could swing back down by her lips properly.

A touch of a button and the headset was ringing through to the phone on her desk and beyond. Ah, certainly useful. It meant she didn't have to climb down from the shelf she was checking. "Evening, Simon," hmmm, yes this shelf HAD been shuffled around a bit. That was one of many aspects of having to make the library public that she didn't care for, children in a rush mishelved things.

Factor in the ability of some of her texts to wander of their own accord and it meant she had to check each shelf when evening fell. "Do you think your student will think to look in his club room? I am glad I set hair in the binding when last it was repaired..." Tsk, students.

"Good evening, Nix." he did his best to keep annoyance out of his tone, since it wasn't at her. "Perhaps. Have you thought about telling him where to look? Or is this your hobby?"

"I understand." Sometimes you just had to let kids get in trouble. Or, at least, other people had to let kids get in trouble. It was safer for everyone if Simon didn't have to deal with discipline.

Then he cursed in Spanish for several minutes, explaining, "I don't think that someone could get this many questions wrong accidentally."

"So far I've found two correct answers in a fifty question assignment." a crackle and pop from his end of the line made clear that the student was going to get back an envelope full of ashes with an F marked on it's outside rather than the paper they'd turned in.

"Thirty." he said grimly. More than half! Which meant it was definitely a fail. Simon's grading was harsh, but consistent.

"I don't know. I haven't asked. It's Johann Schmidt."

"I haven't immolated him or told him to drop." Simon said dryly, "That is about the best I can say. Would you talk to Mr. Fayre on the boy's behalf?"

Simon preferred to have the Nix talk to people for him.

"I can do that." he agreed with a low, hissing sigh. Not even at the students, or the way things had to be sent in circles, but rather at the fact that he'd rather just immolate his problems.
