Room 312, lateTuesday afternoon
After Reserves, Dinah headed back to her room and pulled out the music book she'd bought a week or so ago, and settled in to practice learning to sight-read, shutting the door so as not to bug anyone too much.

The do re mi fa so la ti do would still probably be audible as you got closer, though.

[door is shut, but post is open, and door will probably be open again soon.]

"Awww." Dinah grinned. "You don't want me to help your little sister? Jaime, that's mean." That giggling isn't evil at all, no.

"She doesn't need the ability to kick my butt on top of being a brat," Jaime shot back, laughing in spite of himself.

"I'll teach her to kick other people's butts?" Dinah offered, taking another cookie, snickering. "Still. I hope most peoples' parents don't freak out too much when they see this place."

Oh, that's right, he was normal!

"Oh, yeah, maybe it's a good thing my parents won't be coming. They'd totally freak."

Er... not really, but...

"Uh-hunh." Dinah tilted her head, studying him, then carefully asked, "So, what did they think of Tracy, anyway?"

"Everyone likes Traci," Jaime sort of boasted. "We tried to keep the weird stuff out of sight, you know? No need to freak anyone out."

More than they already were.

"That had to be kinda difficult," Dinah said, sympathetic to that. But at least Jaime himself had taken his girlfriend having superpowers well. She'd never told Matt. Then again, Jak was fine with it... which was really, really nice. "How did you find out Tracy was a magician?" she asked, curious.

"She was kinda teleporting into town when I met her," Jaime grinned. "A bit hard to miss, you know?"

"Wow," Dinah said, then laughed. "Yeah, that's one heck of an introduction." She grinned. "So you guys just hit it off after that, and she'd come by and visit when she wasn't doing magic stuff in England?"

"Or other places around the world," Jaime agreed. "It was hard on both of us, though. Which is why... you know..." The breakup.

Dinah winced and handed over the tin again. "Have another cookie?" She looked down at Camille, and very gently picked her up. "I'm sorta starting a thing. Maybe. I think." She couldn't help smiling down at Camille. "Like, just barely, as of last week. With Jak. Have you met him?"

"Can't say I have, but he can't be too bad a guy if you like him, right?" Jaime grinned and took another cookie. Hey, as long as they were talking about Dinah, he didn't have to be careful to avoid certain topics.

Dinah grinned at him. "I think he's a really good guy. He's blond, has pointy, really long ears--" She gestured so he got the idea. "Likes energy drinks and running around as much as me, and he's kind of an explorer, like Illinois Smith, back at his home." She grinned. "He doesn't talk, really. But he doesn't mind me reading his mind to hold a conversation, so..."

"Guess super-powers can be pretty handy, huh? Especially when meeting cool guys who don't talk."

He grinned. "Should I keep an eye out for him and hassle him about you?"

Dinah snickered, then stuck out her tongue. "You won't get a reaction, mostly. I'm guessing, anyway. But you can try." She shook her head, cuddling a sleepy Camille closer. "He does blank-faced really well. Except to me." She made a face. "I never told Matt about the powers. Maybe, if I had... Anyway. This is nicer. A lot less complicated."
