Professor Collins: The professor smiled. "No no, it's quite all right." The professor studied River a little. "You look like your mother. Now, why don't you run along and rejoin your classmates? It's been an exhausting day for me and I think I'm going to retire to my floor now." Professor Collins held the door open. When River went out, Professor Collins followed her out and locked the door behind her. Then she smiled at River once again before getting in the elevator to go up. She made a mental announcement. I'm going up to my floor now. Remember you must be in your common room on the third floor when your curfew hits at nine. And you must be in your beds at ten. And don't think you can disregard your curfews and not get in trouble. I have ways of knowing if you do. Daniel: When Daniel heard the announcement, he guessed that the professor was done with River. He hoped that River had gotten the answers she was looking for. Max: Max frowned. The curfew thing might disrupt her plans a little. But then, if she continued through with it as normal, she would follow through with the curfews. She just wouldn't stay in bed. And she'd head back to bed after she'd completed the full punishment.
