Rain:198: Lewd Conduct

(Redirected from 198:Lewd Conduct)

Synopsis

Author Notes

Actually, both pages could probably stand alone, but I didn’t feel like dragging out the scene too long. Hence, a twofer. ^_^

And yet, there’s almost so much going on that I don’t know what to say. Your thoughts?

Transcript

Flashback:

Brother Arthur. I've received word that there has been a pair of students engaging in lewd conduct in the halls. Can I have you reprimand them.
Are you by chance referring to Rudy Strongwell and Rain Flaherty hugging and holding hands in the halls?
Indeed. Have you seen this taking place and done nothing to correct it?
Let them be kids. They're not hurting anyone. Besides, I thought you'd be ecstatic that our school's "most notorious trouble-maker" is at least showing interest in a girl instead of another boy?
Lewd conduct is lewd conduct, Brother Arthur. It has no place in the halls of a school.
Besides, Miss Flaherty is failing your math class, is she not? If she were more focused on her schoolwork than her foolish perversions, that might not be the case.
And the worst part is that for once I don't entirely disagree with him.
I would only be too eagar to allow these kids to continue to be happy and enjoy themselves, but Father Quenton is going to force me to intervene.
On the other hand, if Rain can improve her grade, it might be enough to derail his argument... at least for a little while.
Sheez. That guy IS evil incarnate.
I'm having a test in my class on Thursday. If she passes it, I won't fail her on the progress report and Father Quenton will get off everyone's back.
Thank you for telling me this, Brother Arthur. I promise, she'll ace that test.
Oh! One more potential silly question for you, Ms. Bryer.
I don't suppose you know why Rain and Rudy have opted to become a pair, do you?
Surely, you are aware of Rudy's reputation by now. It's really none of my business, but it seems strange to me.
You know...
...I can't say I know. It baffles me on part of both of them.
What I do know is that she's the happiest I've ever seen her right now. And I will do everything in my power to make sure that happiness stays.
