    Summary

    The thing is, Jonathan Sims is someone you’d call the police on if you saw him hanging around a school, those frazzled clothes and bags under his eyes, the frantic muttering and thousand-year stare.
    Yet there he sits, headteacher of The Magnus Institute for Gifted Young Minds.
    The name’s a bit misleading, it is. They’re in a bad part of town. The parents are either terrible or absent, and the kids—
    “They’re monsters,” his new and handsome coworker grins, when Martin’s signature on his contract is barely dry. “Absolute monsters. Get too close and you’ll lose some fingers. Or maybe your mind.”
    “They’re babies,” is all Martin can feebly manage, in reply, and Tim’s eyes narrow at the fondness in his voice.
    “You’ll learn.”

    Summary

    Martin sighs, brushing his palm over Jon's shoulder blade in slow, circular motions. Moments like these, when Jon comes to him for comfort and affection, unlock something special deep in his chest. Jon loves him, Jon trusts him, Jon wants him close by when he doesn't feel well. What a privilege that is.

    or: Jon gets a migraine. Martin gets payback.

    Summary

    Jon wouldn’t say he’s happy, what with Martin being so upset, but his concern is underpinned by how strangely good it feels to be able to have hard days in the normal way; to lament bad weather and wet socks; to have problems that are nothing a lazy night in and good company won't fix. They fought so hard, to have days like this.

    or: Martin has a day as mundane as it is long. Jon rises to the occasion.
