This is inspired by this passage in Eustacia: "Now, with the pain in her face nagging furiously, and worn out with a sleepless night, Miss Stewart was wrathful....'Margia may learn Milton's sonnet on the massacre of the Piedmontese, and repeat it to me before Fruhstuck tomorrow morning'.

And this drabble makes the assumption that Nell and Con are living in one of the houses of the school separate from the others - an idea which I've certainly read somewhere, though I can't remember whether I read it in the books or in a drabble...sorry!
