faster than anticipated

So our underage hero meets up with two responsible adults who will do their best to help him and the three younger students he's (mostly) in charge of.

Hmm. He feels much bolder about dealing with them that I had quite realized. Hadn't expect the character development to come this soon.

Ah, well, he doesn't outright confront them. That will come later, when things rise to a crisis, and he must force them to accept that he must do something. Still room for the arc.
