    Summary

    She picks up one of the chess pieces and fingers it fondly. “I must admit, I had a bit of a hot head in those days. I believe I told everyone that they probably couldn’t win if they played against me anyway - that the logic was much too complex for them. But if they did dare, I’d go easy on them.”
    “And what happened,” Mildred rests an elbow on the table and leans closer, intrigued.
    “Well, this girl I hardly knew, who never spoke except for in class, but who always got top marks, sat down across the table and informed me that so long as I explained the rules to her, there was no need to go easy.”
    “Miss Hardbroom?!”
    “That’s the one,” says Pippa grinning at the memory.

    Summary

    “So, erm, Hecate, is it?”

    Hecate stiffens, her spoon halfway to her mouth.

    “We met at my interview last month. Julie Hubble,” the woman says, holding out her hand to shake before retracting it almost as quickly. “Oh! Er—well-met.” She scrambles to touch her forehead and nearly upturns her soup bowl into her lap.

    Hecate flicks her wrist and freezes the whole ensemble before last week’s porridge disaster can repeat itself.

    Like mother, like daughter, apparently.

    Hecate Hardbroom finds her life turned upside down when Cackle's hires a new Ordinary Culture teacher.
