Tersoo flinched as water splashed on him for the second time that morning and the fifth time that week. The boys in the room above his seemed to be hell-bent on annoying the hell out of him. He wasn’t going to lose it though.

First week of orientation in the Law School, he had heard the Head Housekeeper say people shouldn’t pour water out from the higher floors. Why, it was even in the rules of conduct booklet which had been given to every student upon complete registration.

Still, they poured water. They brushed their mouths and spat onto his window and didn’t even have the courtesy to be discreet. He had gone to tell them to stop and they practically told him to do his worst. Why on earth were some guys so dirty and ill-mannered?

Tersoo took a deep breath. He was going to close his eyes and count to ten because gentlemen never lost their composure. At the count of ten, he knocked on the Head Housekeeper’s door. A gentleman never lost his composure but he could only take so much. And sometimes, snitching was necessary to save one’s sanity.
