Kim doesn't really know much about the Cedric mostly on account that he is also a new kid coming to this school as well beyond while similar to Eli Kim doesn't pay much attention to school gossip seeing as well school gossip, though Kim has heard of him mostly from school and a small bit from his parents interacting with his parents specifically his mother. While he hasn't met Cedric he does hope that he would make a safe return home.

Out of character as well I agree with cinder and zion take all the time you need real life takes priority/
