Title: The Girl at School
Fandom: Person of Interest
Spoilers: Up to S3E05, just to be safe, although it doesn't really spoil anything.
Rating: PG13


The girl is well provided for; some sort of eccentric reclusive billionaire, the Headmaster says. Her clothes are spotless, and her allowance impressive, but none of her teachers would call her entitled or spoiled.

Their only complaint is the endless hours she spends with her headphones on, listening to who knows what, chatting with some internet friend or another seemingly all day. But what teenager doesn't?

Nobody at the school expected the email telling them to let her go, but when the Headmaster went to tell her she had already packed a small bag.

"She just died," she told him as if it explained anything, "and I'm the backup."

.finis.


Literal PS: My intention when writing this was to seem to talk about Gen, but in fact describe somebody the Machine is grooming to sub for Root, but after writing it I realized it could be Gen, who's been monitoring everything and sees herself as Shaw's avenger/backup.

I like the first idea better --- more detachedly creepy, less personally sad --- but of course feel free to run with either idea, or both.
