It's been oddly quiet at St Trinian's lately. It's almost as though it's a real school, and that just can't be. However, things are sure to look up with the arrival of a new girl and Miss Dickinson's ... son?Rated: Fiction K+ - English - Adventure - John C. - Chapters: 5 - Words: 6,013 - Reviews: 29 - Favs: 16 - Follows: 29 - Updated: 11-06-09 - Published: 03-02-09 - id: 4898138

A/N: Hey! So, erm, here's the prologue to a little fic idea I had. Shouldn't really be a long piece, but we'll see. Tell me what you think, and if you'd like to see it continued. I apologise for shortness now, but its hard not to write without giving it all away. On we go!
I don't know how, or when, this will actually reach you, all I can hope it that it does. I've found … well it's a school, and it's relatively safe - for any given value of safe that is. I've got it set up for yours and the tin man's safe entry into the place; you're just lucky that no one really pays attention to what goes on around this place. All they want is to make sure the students all make it through the year alive. (They're only a danger to each other … and society but maybe society needs shaking up now and then)
It's an all girls school though; but don't worry: there's no problem. Like I said, no one pays attention to whats going on around here.. Just … keep to the plan, okay?
"Miss Fritton! Miss Fritton," Ruby Dickinson ran after the Headmistress of St Trinian's, slightly breathless by the time that she had finally caught up with her.
"Yes?" Camilla asked, looking amused with Ruby's breathlessness. "Well what is it dearie?" she asked, rolling her eyes at how long it was taking Ruby to catch her breath. It really wouldn't do, not in St Trinian's.
"It's … well … " Ruby panted, a blush crawling over her cheeks. "I received a letter, from my son's school," she said, sounding completely embarrassed. Camilla stared at the English teacher.
"I didn't know you had a son, dearie," she said, studying her slightly. Another blush crossed Ruby's features.
"Yes … well," she coughed slightly. "He's been expelled from his school," she said, showing Camilla the letter. "He was caught hacking, again," she added, an annoyed tone entering her voice. "I know that this is an all girl's school, and I wouldn't normally dare even considering asking," she pleaded, "but I am at my wit's end. I just …" she sighed, "I don't know what to do with him."
Camilla stared at Ruby for a few moments longer. "What the hell," she said eventually, grinning widely. "It's growing a little stale around here these past few days," she said, shrugging lightly, "we've got a new girl starting in a few days, why not have your son show up on the same day?" she said,
Ruby grinned widely. "Oh thank you, Miss Fritton, you won't regret this … I hope," she added with a nervous smile. Camilla smiled back, wandering off to go and meet Matron, who had told her all about her new cocktail that she simply had to sample.
Ruby walked back to her classroom, a satisfied smirk crawling on to her face.
That was easy.
