I'm so happy for Cecily. :D And what a wonderful way to teach that form a lesson! I too would love to see a sequel.

This has been so good Myth Tree, thank you so much. I like the way you have been realistic but also given us a happy ending. Yay for ?Elsie? Carr's cameo though, I didn't recognise the name before. If it was there?
A good idea with the form - it tells them that they were in the wrong, not cecily or just Jocelyn alone.

Felicity was so right wne when she said you can not run away from yourself. Pleased Cecily has the twins and Daphne in the English branch.
I thinkkeeping Upper IVA as middles is not just punishment for how they treated Cecily, but for their general childishness.
Thanks for an excellant drabble.

"I am appalled that Miss A. has not managed to solve the issue of bullying. Those girls will do the same to someone else at some stage unless they are made to realise what they have done." I agree with you 100%.

A (hopefully) happy ending for Cecila but I am appalled that Miss A. has not managed to solve the issue of bullying. Those girls will do the same to someone else at some stage unless they are made to realise what they have done.

Is this the end? Seems like a bit of a cop-out. Cecily needs to be helped to grow up, not be encouraged to run away. She's insecure enough as it is --- look at how easily she sinks into one of her black moods out of pure insecurity, even on the day that Con turned up for belated birthday celebrations with her and the rest of the family; how she eavedrops on the meeting in the salon, etc.

Poor Cecil. Even though Jocelyn is gone, she's still got the rest of the firm to deal with & they're hating her at the moment. Glad Jack was there to comfort her when she needed it most. Hope she doesn't eavesdrop on whatever is happening in the Salon & it all gets resolved soon.
Thanks Myth Tree

Poor old Cecil! What a horrible situation for her, entirely and thoroughly horrible! I'm glad the staff are on her side, but that doesn't always help in cases of bullying. I am hoping that things will start to resolve soon, but I seem to remember saying that in a comment a few updates ago! But the situation is very realistic and well-paced; there's no magic cure for bullying, and often it takes a long time to die down. But poor old Cecil!
On a side note, very pleased to see Tristan turning up and being a lamb :)
Tristan is always a lamb, at least I think so. (Even before I read your version)

I understand that bullies can have their own problems too, but to expect Cecil to have compassion for her at this stage, so soon after she has been held down so hard her shoulders were bruised, after months of bullying which made her feel so worthless she wanted to cut herself - that seems a little insensitive to me, although I know Nancy means well.
