Quinn strode with purpose towards her designated meeting place with Brittany, the Black Lake. It was a place that she loved to frequent, as she enjoyed looking out on the water and collecting her thoughts. She also loved looking out for the giant squid, having never seen one up close and always hoping for a glimpse of it, although as of her sixth year the squid had yet to make an appearance.
However, the squid was the last thing on her mind as she made her way to the lake. Her mind was instead still fixated on fixing the current puzzle before her. Here are the pieces: her best friend is in love with her fellow prefect who has a penchant for malice, but this malice was not unleashed upon Quinn this morning despite their turbulent subject matter shortly before their class. She was hoping that her best friend would be the missing piece to this puzzle.
She reached the lake and found that she was there first, so she looked out on the water as she waited. No squid.
