in which the lesser of two evils may still be pretty evil

Bella didn't mean to take so long about eating her dinner. It's just that this book is really interesting. Supplemental history reading, recommended by the professor, by a different author than did their textbook, one who can really write, she'll have to find the rest of his work - and now she's one of six students left in the dining hall and it's closing. Four of them are a group of dwarves who she can only assume live in the dwarf housing; individual dwarves sometimes find their way into Harlowe and there is even one in Thatcher, but not a bunch of them. The other one's a mermaid.

Bella doesn't think the mermaid lives in Thatcher, which makes it Harlowe, but Thatcher's on the way to Harlowe from here.

She knows not to go swimming with her and this will have to do.

She goes up to the mermaid.

"Excuse me. I try not to walk around outside by myself. Are you heading towards Thatcher? Harlowe's right past it," she adds.

"Oh. Then yes!" says the mermaid, smiling. She has large bright green eyes and long black hair and a slight teal cast to her pale skin, and she's dressed in the usual mermaid ensemble of 'scaly legs and lots of heavy gold necklaces'. (The scales are also teal. So is her hair, if you look closely, but it's dark enough to pass for black at a glance.)

"I'm Jala," says the mermaid. "It's nice to meet you!"

"No, I'm good," says Jala. She smiles again. She has a very sweet smile.

"So why do you not walk around outside by yourself?" asks Jala.

"Oh," says Jala, wide-eyed. "Wow. That's a pretty good reason."

"Well, yeah," says Jala. "I mean - I don't know - maybe if you were the only person fated to break it, or something, and it was something really horrible. Are you? Is it?"

"That bites," Jala says sympathetically.

"Of course not," says Jala. "The administrators don't do anything about anything."

"Probably," Jala says glumly.

"A little something somewhere isn't the same," says Jala, shaking her head.

Apparently Jala doesn't have anything more to say about that.
