We choose the nobles and mages.

Sometimes, nobles remind you of pigeons. Same strut. Same beady little eyes. Same puffed-up attitudes.

And same inward-facing circles, impossible to break into.

For a few moments, you lurk around the edges, smiling brightly whenever someone glances your way and offering enthusiastic laughter when a joke rings out. A few lords and ladies glance your way with raised eyebrows—you haven't really mastered the subdued, aristocratic chortle—but no one invites you into conversation.

Standing there, all dressed for the ball, you feel very small and very silly.

Then from behind you, a voice says, "Well, well. I do believe we've met."

You turn to find the Queen's Scholar from earlier this afternoon. She's added an academic hood and gown to her gray mage's robes. The red trim denoting her status still displays prominently. She twists the stem of a wineglass between her fingers.

"It's good to see you again! I don't believe we were introduced properly, though," she says. "It was all very fast. For real, now—my name is Melusine."

"And I'm Rosalee," you answer.

Melusine eyes you over the rim of her glass. "So, you seemed quite interested in the Mages College."

"No, I only…"

Her look stops you.

1."I'm interested in the College on a purely theoretical level."
2."It's only because my grandmother Laudine was a mage."
3."Mages rank high, right? I ought to be familiar with them."
4."I knew a hedge wizard in Bourg-les-Bains. He got me interested."

1 and 3 sound insulting. 2 is true enough. I'm going to say 4 as a choice.

Agreed, 2.
I would say 4, but I don't know the setting enough to know if there's prejudice against hedge-wizards

Grandma was a mage.

"You're so lucky. You must have many stories about her," Melusine says. "She was a great mage."

"Not as many as I'd like," you answer softly. "She brought so much honor to my family."

"Of course." There's a pause while Melusine sips more wine. "But you never wanted to attend the College yourself?"

1."Me? No, I'm not a mage."
2."I might've considered it once or twice."
3."Absolutely, I wanted to!"

We might have considered it.

Melusine grins wickedly. "I think you're just being modest."

Suddenly awkward, you shuffle a little. "It's been my dream to become a Ranger. Now that I've got that, how can I go haring off after magic?"

"You're allowed to want more than one thing, you know." Melusine pauses. "Mage-Professor Jacmes is here tonight. He's one of my instructors at the Mages College. Would you like an introduction?"

"I—"

"Consider it done."

When she smiles at you like that, it's almost too bright, too warm. The other mages have withdrawn from you, but you can't help but notice the smirks they're casting your way. Melusine lifts a glass of wine from a passing servant and offers it to you. Your fingers brush as you take it.

1.I want to know her better. Let's keep the conversation going.
2.This is a bit much. I make an excuse to leave.
3.I ask if she wants to seek a quieter corner.
