Isolde's Room

Previously the lodgings of the late Lady Braddock, the Dower House fell into disuse for a number of years, particularly after Braddock Manor passed to Brian himself. Since the arrival of the University, it has been renovated into an administrative building as well as faculty and staff housing on the second floor.

"Of course not. We are very interested in the world continuing as it is supposed to, at least until it's time for it to stop. I'm just here to let you know that while her choice is made, we very much consider your status probationary."

"The Dark may have retreated, but that is only to lick its wounds. With a child this close to the nexus, they likely consider it too large of a threat and seek to remove her. Without a guardian, they will succeed. See that they don't. If you can manage that, we will bow to the child's choice."

The woman just makes a thoughtful noise and moves towards the door. "Good luck to you, guardian. I would be amused to be proven wrong about you."

"I should hope you do not need to see me again. That would mean you had failed." As she stepped out of the door she faded from sight, leaving no trace behind.

Isolde hasn't been all that talkative since she carried Wanda up to her room. As she said, it's fairly sparse, with not much in the way of belongings. The bedspread is almost assuredly the university's.

As Wanda wakes up, she sees a large black wolf still curled on the floor nearby.

Wanda props herself up on her elbow, "You could have shared the bed, you know. You didn't have to sleep on the floor."

"Yes, yes, and you've walked to the store uphill both ways in the snow," she says, adjusting her position on the bed to make as much room as was possible. "Now get up here. I can't have my guardian stiff from sleeping on the floor."

Isolde hesitates, but ultimately does climb into the bed.

She shows no sign of shifting back just yet, but her pelt is already filling in compared to what Wanda saw earlier.

"...happy?"

"For the moment," Wanda says, moving her arm across Isolde's back as she lowers her head back onto the pillow. "Your coat is really nice."

Wanda brushes the back of her hand against Isolde's cheek. "I cheated you of your chance. I seem to be constantly needing looking after."

Wanda smiles, "And I shouldn't be so pushy, but I can't help it." She polite averts her eyes from the change, not sure Isolde wants her to see that again.
