Default Detention: Bernadette Grantham

The moon had already begun rising over the lake by the time the Headmaster approached. It would be 7 soon, detention time and if Grantham knew what was good for her, she'd be on time or early. It saved them both a lot of extra grief in the long run and he wasn't sure which of them would have been more reluctant for a second detention. Him. Probably him.

Believe it or not, the man did have other things to do besides supervise children through their punishment. Headmaster came with responsibilities, go figure.

Malachi waited by the edge of the lake. Some of the boats tied by the dock nearby bobbing in the gentle waves. There wasn't much to give away what they'd be doing for the evening but he hoped the girl had eaten her belly full at dinner and was ready to work.

Beerrrrrnie, Bernie Bernie. Se was quite the troublemaker. In fact, she was giving his own son a run for his money, but it was still the beginning of the term. Curtis was already making strides to knock her out of first place. At this point, he wasn't sure who was worse. And it was something that Bernadette even seemed to LIKE the idea of getting detention.

Kids these days.

With a sigh, Piers approached the lake, hands tucked into his pockets. He had changed from his teaching attire into something more casual, including some flannel since the nights were already starting to cool down. "What's on the agenda tonight?" he asked the Headmaster as he neared, looking out at the lake. "See if we can't lure the giant squid out to give her a scare?" Come to think of it, she'd probably find that rather exciting...

Of course Bernadette liked the IDEA of getting detention.

It was the following through part that she didn't enjoy as much.

Dragging her feet slightly, and with a giiiiiaaaaaaaaaaaaaant sigh, she wandered down to the lake where Professor Fuller-Thompson AND the Headman himself were. Giant squid, they were talking about, eh? Well that would certainly make this all worth it! "I'd LovE to meet the Giant Squid, sirs," she greeted them enthusiastically.

No need to check their watches, she was right on time and as bubbly as ever.... for now.

He’d been about to say it, about to point out that the squid would be more a treat than a threat to Grantham...but then Rainbow Truffles came and beat him to it. If nothing else, she’d done herself a disservice. Wanting something during detention was the surest way to not get it. Kid could’ve pretended otherwise, see if it got her anything more than this surely would. An opportunity missed, alas.

“Bartholomew Henry will remain where he is. There’s no need for providing you playmates when we mean to punish you.” Just...so she didn’t forget why they were here. This...was very much detention.

He looked to his work bestie Piers, then the boats floating just a ways off. “You did neglect to clean or maintain them, like I’ve asked, yes?” Couldn’t go making anything easy, afterall.

“Before we begin, there’s just a few things to get squared away. I’ll be taking your wand.” He removed a hand from his pocket and stuck it out to receive it. “You’ll also—and think carefully, it could determine how long you stay out here—tell us why you were given detention. Why d’you think we’ve done what we’ve done.” He prayed a small prayer she’d get it because he didn’t really want the alternative.

“Impervius should do, give her a hand with that?” Once the Charms Professor got that done, she’d be better suited for the night’s activities.

Bartholomew Henry was the squid's name? "But that's the CUTEST name I've EVER heard," Bernie whinged sighed. Ah-ha, the ooOohKaaay wE'Re HeRe tO pUniSh yOu lecture was starting already. When did the Headmaster start becoming such a grumpy pants? Remember back when they used to wander Beauxbatons, tick off the Headmistress, and fight dragon-fires together? Those were the good ole days.

She eyed the boats and the charms professor and then the boats again, listening carefully to the grown-ups. Was it just her, or did they sound like they were plotting her demise?

She sighed AGAIN but handed over her wand, tapping the headmaster's palm with her index finger as though warning him before she set it there gently. "Remember to take good care of her. She might need more spellotape; she was pretty slow in your class against that dummy." It hadn't been Effie's fault those dummies were fast, but Bernie might need to upgrade (or repair) her mahogany wand before next term....

Anyway, um, to the Headman's question. She squinted up at him. "Well I know why I've done the things I've done, but I dunno why you and yous," she wiggled her finger between the two men, "have done the things you've done. Why've you done those things, huh? Do I wanna know?"

She peered up at them seriously and paused as she thought carefully about what he wanted to hear next.

"I can't speak for you, sir, but I believe that you gave me detention because you didn't want EVERYONE to just ride the boats all the time. That's my guess. You're probably thinking, right, they're supposed to be for firsties and all that, but on account of how my first year was spent at Beauxbatons, I didn't get the formal opportunity to ride in a boat as a firstie, so I thought I'd need to make use of that opportunity this year, because I'm still smöl and all, and I made friends with a first year on the train, and he thought it was a brilliant idea and all, but I do understand that if all of us attempted to ride the boats every term, then we might run out of boats for firsties, and it might like, stop being special for them, because they're new and all that, but ya only get one shot, and I thought, do NOT miss your chance to boat, so I did it, and I did enjoy the view of Hogwarts from across the lake, I mean, it's LOVELY when it's all lit up at night, like, it really does take your breath away, and I hope I didn't cause any confusion or make anyone look for me, because I really did just try to fit in with the other kids, and those boats are pretty neat and fast and all that, so cheers to whoever maintains those, sir, and even though I made it safely and really caused no harm to anyone or any THING, I mean, I'm real sorry."

She dug her toe into the mud and looked up at the Headmaster earnestly. "It was a one-time thing, sir. I promise I will NOT do it again."

Unless he wanted her to, y'know, take a boat out and keep Bertie Henry company? One could hope.

You know, they actually were plotting her demise. Good guess.

Piers gave the Headmaster a nod when he asked about the boats. "Yes, I took a nap instead." He did like his naps, and took every opportunity he could to take one. So if he didn't have to clean the boats, he was definitely going to nap.

The Groundskeeper then crossed his arms and listened to the two conversed, Piers' eyebrows gradually raising on his forehead until they couldn't be raised anymore. To be honest, he was actually kind of impressed with how she talked to the Headmaster. Impressed, but he should probably be more... disappointed. It's just... she was so casual. So sassy for being so smol.

And then came her monologue.

Piers zoned out for most of it, to be honest. But when she finally drew for breath, he pointed his wand at her and said "Impervious," to protect her from getting wet. She could thank him later.

"Perfect." What the man did with the time he would've used to clean the boats was hardly a concern of the Headmaster. All he wanted was filthy boats for the Gryffindor. He had that, he was pleased.

Less pleasing were the words that came out of Grantham's mouth when she decided to speak, despite his asking that she think carefully.

That...that was not thinking carefully.

It wasn't anything to do with the wand. That was pocketed the moment he received it then forgotten. It wasn't about Bartholomew's name. It wasn't even about the accuracy of her statement once she actually began to use common sense. It was the snark in between and it visibly had the man facepalming on nothing but reflex.

"Had to go and mess it up, didn't you? Couldn't let us be out of here in an hour. That's an extra half hour added and I encourage you to do more thinking before speaking for the rest of the night lest you intend to sleep in one of those boats." He couldn't keep her out here all night, but he could get close enough to that. "Had you left off your little spiel about knowing why you do what you do versus why we do what we do, the answer would've been perfect. It would've been well thought out, mature and impressive. I wasn't expecting such clarity after the crime and an answer like that could've shaved 15 minutes off your time. It showed that you understood what I'd been asking and makes that whole first part both untrue and unnecessary." Clearly, she did know why they'd given her detention. It went without saying, he was disappointed.

Rather than ask her anything else that could potentially turn this into a 2 hour detention, the Headmaster nodded toward the lake. "Go fetch one of the boats. Pull it onto the shore. Professor Fuller-Thompson will provide the equipment for cleaning."

........????????

A nap?!

Bernie glanced again between the two adults, growing a smidgen more concerned the longer she waited out here. Why was the Headmaster doing this? Why was he going all... bossy and disappointed dad on her??? All she'd done was answer his question, exactly as he'd asked it, since he had said we and all. Um, was he doing this to impress the Charms professor???????

She frowned, deeply, at the Headmaster's response, her brow furrowing, her lip wobbling. She barely even flinched as Fuller cast some spell on her robes or something. Nimble, he was. She glanced down and touched her hem gently, admiring how they suddenly felt like a raincoat, and looked up at the Headmaster again. "I...." I didn't MEAN to make it sound like a spiel! It had been an honest question! Bernie shut her mouth abruptly. "I'm sorry," she said curtly instead.

Turning around on her heel with a flourish, she marched herself down to one of the boats, and started tugging on the rope it was tied to. UGGGGGGFFFF! It was heavy! So heavy!!!!!!! But she wasn't going to ask for help. She was just going to tug the boat as much as she could, gritting her teeth stubbornly.

The “sorry” he accepted with a simple nod. It was likely an oversight on her part. It seemed of late, quite a few of the students were having oversights. Dare he blame it on their time at Beauxbatons? No. He still expected them to know better.

Malachi conjured himself a chair and took a seat by the shoreline, just beyond the water. “Chair?” He offered Piers. This could take a while. There was no need to stand through it. They were not the ones to have received detention.

Now sitting, the Headmaster pulled his stack of plans from his robes and began looking them over. He occasionally glanced up to ensure the girl was still working but there was equally no need for everyone’s time to be wasted.

He supposed, once she was good and tuckered out, she’d ask for some help. Perhaps she would get the boat into shore with pure determination. Even then, she had another 4 to pull in.

No complaints here, as long as the work got done.

Bernie wasn't even going to TURN AROUND to give these GROWN MEN the satisfaction of watching her struggle. She had far too much pride for that. Instead, she tugged and tugged and tugged on the boat's rope, managing to create a small ripple in the grit on the shore and a large rope burn on her hand. Together, this effort certainly made it LOOK like the boat had shifted a whole quarter of an inch toward the shore.

That was it. If she couldn't get the boats to move, SHE would move. Bernie scrambled up the rope holding the boat in place and flipped down inside the boat, lying flat on her face in a combination of humiliation and frustration.

Well, at least they couldn't see her struggling from here. In fact, they couldn't see her at all.

"Oh yeah, there's a toothbrush in one of the boats," he said with QUITE a chortle. There wasn't a toothbrush though, but a rather large scrubber brush. He just LOVED to give tweens a hard time. He was so good at it, too.

Piers turned and followed the Headmaster to his spot away from the shoreline and nodded at the offer of a chair. "Ah, yes please." He always did like a relaxing time at the lake. He could just pretend there wasn't a detention taking place and just relaaaaax.

She was fine, right?

Trent lifted a hand to his mouth, coughing to disguise the snicker at the mention of a toothbrush for cleaning. It was the sort of demoralising thing you saw in muggle movies and were the girl displaying a sour attitude, perhaps something he would have welcomed. As it stood, it was a funny idea and likely nothing more.

The Headmaster conjured a second chair next to his own before turning his gaze back to the Second....Year.

What in Merlin’s soggy beard.....? Malachi watched her climb into the boat and disappear, likely flopped on its floor. That simply wouldn’t do. With a flick of his wand, the boat levitated from the water and over to the shore, stopping just before the men. It slowly began to tilt in an effort to roll the girl out of it without unceremoniously dropping her on her hide.

She could thank him later.

“Rise and shine, Grantham, there’s work to be done. You like the boats so much, you can surely clean them.” He kept tilting the boat until it was entirely wrong side up. “Circe, just look at the bottom of this one. Best get started on it before returning for the others. And look, there’s your new wand.” The scrubbing brush that likely fell from the boat when she would’ve.

He summoned a bucket, filled it with water then levitated it over. Chop chop. The night wasn’t getting any younger.

Well that was one way to get the boat onto the shore! Bernie raised her head as the boat started floating away, then tipping up, up, and she began sliding down, down... till she landed on the ground, on her feet, as any Lion should.

Thre second year nonchalantly smoothed out her robes and cleared her throat. "I DO like the boats, sir...." but what was this? Why was he flipping it over? What was the point of that? Bernie's mouth popped open and closed like a fish from the lake. "Shouldn't I focus on scrubbing the seats where the precious firsties sit?" Also, wasn't it pointless to scrub the bottom of a boat??? It would just get dirty again instantly as soon as it touched the water????

She picked up the bucket and the ugly scrub brush that had fallen out with her. "Also, sir, er, sirs, I might need some soap in here???" Hello, Fuller, this is your specialty. Cleaning charms and whatnot. Also, was the Headmaster making fun of her broken wand???? That was cruel. She just stared at him with a kicked puppy expression.

The Charms professor took a seat in the newly conjured chair and plopped down with a sigh, extending his legs out and crossing his ankles, watching the boat being dragged out and watching Bernie get dumped onto the ground. It was quite entertaining, really. Detention WAS fun, wasn't it?

"The soap's in the brush," Piers said, gesturing to it. All she had to do was start scrubbing, and the suds would appear. Cleaning charms at their finest.

Oh! Wow, Fuller really was a Charms master. Huh. Bernie would have never thought to check the brush.

She slopped some water from the bucket to the boat and then sighed deeply. Cleaning. Was. The. Worst. Still, the faster she got it over worth... she leaned down and began scrubbing, soap-laden brush in hand.

See? They'd had it all thought out, the soap was in the brush, Piers was a forward thinking and he knew he could count on him for that much.

The fact he hadn't been making fun of her wand made it difficult for him to understand the kicked cruppy look. "Lighten up, Grantham. It's only detention. It doesn't go on forever." Unless she had more things to say without thinking. That would've certainly made things longer.

"Be sure to give it a good and proper scrub. Really put your back into it.. Don't forget the other side."

Ah, detention.

Oh no, Bernadette was definitely going to keep up the kicked pup expression. She sniffed a little, her lips fixed in a permanent pout, and started scrub-a-dub-dubbing at the boat. She went up one side and then down the other, sloshing water all over the place, getting some suds in her hair, and definitely getting mud all over her boots. But whatever, right? It didn't go on forever and she had to look busy.

When she finished one side, she raised her hand for the Headmaster's attention. "Can you flip it for me? Sir?" she asked in her high-pitched little second-year voice. How did they come up with these detentions anyway? "Did YOU ever have to scrub boats for detention, sir?" Obviously the Headmaster had had a detention before. She wondered if Fuller-Thompson had ever had one though. He seemed like a goody-goody, too nice to break rulez.

Yeah I broke that mirror, so what? ll NOT backward ll Official Gryfferin ll Lemon's favourite

Scrubbing boats?

"Never." He replied, honestly. "I've had to shovel dung, scrub the loo..." He tapped his finger against his chin, recalling his own days within the castle with some amount of fondness. "Repainting sets, helping with the castle's meals for a week--clean up afterwards mostly." He could've gone on til he realized that the more examples he gave was the more evident it would've become that he had a...healthy detention life....to say the least.

It wouldn't do to encourage bad behaviour in this one.

"But there's no need to flip the boat. It appears you've missed a spot." Or several. Everything she'd just cleared away....had returned. All the gunk and the grime, everything that attached itself to the bottom side of the boat, all returned to be scrubbed again.

Fun, yeah? SO MUCH FUN!! Kinda made her wanna keep having detentions, didn't it????

Yay menial tasks.

Bernadette's eyes widened at the sheer glossary of detentions the Headmaster had had... she was impressed, to say the least, and slightly concerned because what if he drew on his own detention history for inspiration for her next one? Because it was only inevitable that she would find herself in detention again in a few months...

Bernie shook her head and looked at the spot on the boat she'd missed. "Oh no!" The second year lept into action and furiously scrubbed that gunk, then bent down to pick up the bucket to rinse it again, only to notice that somehow, all the gunk had returned, regrowing as though she had never scrubbed it all off in the first place.

Bernie dropped her bucket with an alarmed cry. "Headmaster, these boats are CURSED! I just scrubbed this all off and it's already DIRTY again! Watch!" She took her brush to the boat and furiously removed a circle of grime, then looked to him to see if he was watching as it all came back. "What do I do?!?!" This wasn't detention; it was an exercise in futility!

Was it...bad to be so amused by her reaction? Probably. It would only give away the game. Trent sat forward in his seat, one leg crossed and his arm propped up to cradle his cheek while his fingers did their best to cover his mouth. Certainly not amused. Nope.

Ahem.

As to what she would do...

“Scrub, scrub harder Grantham. Perhaps that will deter the grime from returning. I’ve seen this before, yes. It’s the only chance you have. Give it your all, and we’ll see if we can’t dislodge that dirt.”

It wasn’t entirely a lie. If the girl continued scrubbing, it would all go away, every last spot.

.......until she was done and it returned again. Strange how cursed boats worked.

Wow, the Headmaster really seemed to be intently studying the boat. Bernie would have thought that he'd get up and come over and look at it but maybe he knew what the curse was just from watching. He was supposed to be an expert on these things, after all. Sure enough, he seemed to have a solution for her.

"Okaaaaay," the second year called out nervously, not at all expecting this to work. She took her brush to the boat with a renewed vengeance, gritting her teeth and scrubbing so furiously that she began to bend the bristles of the brush back. When she paused to rinse the soap off, the brush looked like a worn, old toothbrush.

But sure enough, no sooner had Bernie enthusiastically tossed water on the boats than the grime had returned. Like magic. "Noooooooooooooooo," the second year cried, genuinely distressed and frustrated by this horror. "Sir, sir," either sir would do, "PLEASE help. Nothing's working!" Bernie threw her hands up in horror, accidentally tossing her scrub brush toward them as she stood there, about to cry.

Piers... zoned out. It had been a long day, okay? Thankfully this detention was being led by Trent so he really didn't have to do much. He was just chilling until the scrub brush flew towards them because dear Bernadette was having a whining fit.

Was she about to cry?

"Bernadette," Piers said almost exasperated. "This isn't about getting them CLEAN, it's about doing as your told." So yeah, the boats were going to stay dirty and it was going to drive her nuts, but that wasn't the POINT. So she needed to come pick up her sudsy, dirty scrubber and get back to work. Life was hard, kid. Deal with it.

It.... wait..... whuhhhhh??? Huhhhhh??????? Bernadette S T A R E D at the Charms professor as though he had two heads and four arms. Her face went from ugly crying mode to the red tomato of embarrassment and anger in just a few seconds. Really? They DIDN'T want her to actually scrub the boats??? They were just wasting her time out here?!??!? Trent had L I E D to her?!?!??!?!?!?!!

"Then what was the point of even trying!" she exclaimed at the men, crossing her arms and kicking over the charmed bucket of water as she turned on her heel and stalked away. Bernie began walking forcefully along the shoreline and away from the Headmaster, the Charms professor, and all the stupid, dirty, cursed boats. She was done here. She'd rather go live in the Forbidden Forest than be betrayed like this.
