"The university it's only for women?" ask Quiebrahuesos, looking around at the classroom.
Her mother-in-law, Gawiel, looked at her confused. "Why you ask? D'uh. Just look around and find the evident answer!"
Quiebrahuesos looked around. As far she could tell, there where only pointy-ears women.
"Yes?" she ventured as an answer to her own question.
"D'uh! Obviously not! More than half the students are male!" said Gawiel, as she rolled her eyes, making her classmates laugh at Quiebrahuesos, who moved uncomfortable in the bench, too small for her.
Gawiel picked that place with a purpose, to make specially visible the new wife of her son Manwë, the Dryad of the House of the Manwë. Well, at least, what all the elves of Vanilion thought it was a dryad, thought to herself Quiebrahuesos Wargh, trying to make herself feel better. Despise they attitude, looks and laughs, they didn't seemed to suspect she was really an orc of the plains!
But that really didn't make her feel much better, as everybody in the classroom looked at her, the last novelty in the bored high elven society of Vanilion.
Meanwhile her daughter-in-law, Quirwen Wallae, the dryad, feel uncomfortable and out of place -surely she needed some trees to hug or something, she thought-, Gawiel Manwë smiled, as her idea to be mor popular in the University where working!
With all her classmates looking at the Leaf Elf, she was as well the center of attention, for well: bringing her! And she was in her house and married to her son
. Surely it was embarassing to have a barbarian dryad as daughter-on-law, but everything was nice!
"Psst!" said one of her friends.
"What?" asked Gawiel
"Are you sure it was a goof idea to bring the dryad?" she said.
"Why not?" said Gawiel, bothered. She didn't liked when people didn't give her attention. Or didn't do what she wanted. Or they contrary in any way, even in a small one, to anything she wanted, decided or desired.
"Well, surely you know, surerly the Dryad grab attention..."
"But what?!" she said, annoyed as her friend keep taking time in saying what she thought.
"I don't think it's the right attention... I mean, you are using her as a jester. Surely she it's fun, and lovely for a uncultered savage leaf elf barbarian, which foolishness is more expected and forgiveable!
...But it sort make everybody remember you son, as she it's his wife... So it's making all of you look more and more of some weirdos"
"Shut up" Gawile whispered to her friend, furiously biting the writing feather. She hadn't thought of that. She never thought of that. She never think in that sort of things, and later mom allways it's nagging.
Why everybody it's so silent now?
The Professor who was giving the class was looking at her. Crap. Did he asked something? She didn't heared. She knew that professor, he will love to humilliate her.
But then, the eyes of the professor, in front of the classroom, moved to the dryad...
Half orc At the university, technically, but: Shhh!, don't tell Quiebrahuesos that!!
Let's play along with Quiebrahuesos!
From the 10 elves in this pic, point out their genders!
tip: there are more male pointy-earz than female ones!
