    Summary

    And as such, Miss Hardbroom would only hear the smeared recounting from three little witches of how it came to be that the ingredients for a levitation potion were spilled on the hallway floor, how Ethel Hallow received the purple bruise she is now sporting below her chin, or how Mildred Hubble is now, somehow, inexplicably, missing a sock.

    “500 lines. 'I shall not run in the halls',” she sneers, hoping that the punishment will keep the girls out of trouble for the rest of the day.

    If this were any other academy, in which there were not a little witch named Mildred Hubble, and another with the unfortunate name of Hallow, Miss Hardbroom would have been quite right in expecting a quiet day conducive to learning the Craft.

    As it is, this is no ordinary academy, and Mildred Hubble is very much still Mildred Hubble, missing sock or not.

    Summary

    “Apprentice?” Miss Hardbroom’s voice is very strangled, like she’s chewing on glass.

    “Don’t you think that’s the ideal solution? Mildred needs a guide in the ways of the magical world. And who better to teach her than someone as dedicated to The Craft as yourself.” Miss Pentangle smiles sweetly.

    Mum is still looking between them all only now she seems about to laugh. “Yes, that’s right,” she leans in again, her smile every bit as sweet as Miss Pentangle’s. “How kind of you to offer, Miss Hardbroom.”

    “I never offered -”

    “I’m sure Mildred will benefit greatly from everything you can teach her. After all, you are rather an expert in The Code, I hear.”

    Miss Hardbroom continues to sputter.

    ****
    Pippa befriends Julie Hubble.

    Hecate suddenly finds herself with an apprentice.

    Mildred has watched The Parent Trap one too many times. But she should have been watching You've Got Mail instead.
