Klaroline + they find out dragons exist/aren't extinct when Caroline accidentally finds herself with a pet dragon
More of the mini drabble prompts from a couple weeks ago! I went full on with the magic school thing here. Sorrynotsorry.
Have It All
When Caroline’s newest student, a young boy from a coven in remote part of Sweden that was exhibiting abilities his parent’s didn’t know how to deal with, had shown up with a blue enameled box as a gift Caroline hadn’t been able to turn it down. He’d smiled, sweet and shy, and told her in heavily accented English that he was looking forward to beginning to learn and left the box on her desk while one of her assistants set out to introduce him to the other kids in his age group.
She’d studied the box for a minute, held it up to the light to admire the vivid blues and swirling silvers that decorated it. It had been remarkably heavy, she’d noted and she’d been searching for a latch when someone had knocked at her office door.
Running a school meant precious little time to kick back and relax, Caroline had found. She was forever on her feet putting out (sometimes literal) fires. She’d set the box aside once she’d returned to her office, buckled down to do some of her endless piles of paperwork, and forgotten all about it
Until it had begun to move. On its own.
Now, a couple years ago Caroline might have screamed bloody murder. Her nerves were made of sterner stuff now that she was often surrounded by tiny people with extreme, sometimes uncontrollable, power at their disposal. She merely pushes back her chair, eyeing the box perched innocently on a bookshelf under the window.
She’d been subject to a prank or two and while little Valter Andersson didn’t seem the type to attempt to make an entrance but maybe that had been on purpose, an attempt to lull her into a false sense of security by hiding his true shit disturber nature.
Magical kids were definitely crafty.
