Considering the school somehow knew students were coming before they'd even arrived, Zoe was always surprised by how much physical paperwork the beginning of a new term brought. She currently had piles of folders scattered around her desk in organized chaos form; eventually, everything would be back in the filing cabinets, but until then there was a bit of a maze going on to get through the room.

This wasn't quite how she'd imagined her adult life to be, but it could have been a lot worse.

Bay had almost chickened out of this conversation, but it seemed important someone know about Gert officially. So she was there during office hours, awkwardly peeking through the doorway.

"Principal Winchester?" she said. "I'm Bay. I graduated this year. Um -- you probably knew that, and -- "

She finally registered the maze of paperwork.

"Should I come back later?"

"Thanks," Bay said, and scooted on in. "It's not about me, it's about somebody else who goes to school here. Or -- she did, anyhow. Gertrude Yorkes."

"Gert with the dinosaur," Bay agreed, tucking her hair behind her ear as she slid into the offered seat. "And the purple hair. She, um, didn't really blend."

Not that Gert had ever wanted to, from what Bay could tell.

She drew a deep breath, steeling herself for what she had to say next. "I don't know how to say this, but -- she was killed."

[OOC: You saw nothing!]

"Back in L.A.," Bay nodded, and wiped an eye with the side of her hand in a way she knew made her look like a kid. "It's strange, you know? Portalocity really didn't want to sell her the ticket, and I finally bought it for her, and --"

Deep breath, Bay. She blinked hard again before going on.

"Someone had kidnapped one of her friends," she said flatly, keeping the story as short as she could. It wasn't like extra details would make Gert less dead. "She was stabbed trying to save her."

justbeingbay: ([neg] say what now?)
From: [personal profile] justbeingbay
One of the ways Bay was still a kid was that she'd had some secret hope Zoe would be able to say some magic words and make it all better -- bring Gert back to life, or, if not, make Bay's heart stop hurting like this. She hadn't realized how much she wanted that until she saw it wasn't going to happen.

She was disappointed even as she knew how silly it had been.

She shook her head. "No, I mean, someone should clean out her room and all of that, but that's --" She waved a hand vaguely. It wasn't what she was thinking of yet. "I just wanted someone from the school to know. Officially. She deserved that."

"So I get to join a club of 'this sucks,'" Bay said, with a weak smile. "Thanks. I'll go see the guy in town. And I'll clean out her room, but maybe not right away."

She wasn't ready to handle Gert's stuff, but she didn't want some janitor to do it either.

From: [personal profile] justbeingbay
"Uh-huh," Bay nodded. "I will. And ... thanks for listening and everything."

justbeingbay: ([neu] very suspicious)
From: [personal profile] justbeingbay
Bay nodded. "I'll try," she said. "I haven't been sleeping great, but that's to be expected, right?"
