My Ranking Points
As soon as I stepped back into Dovey’s office I saw that Danny was gone.
I felt my face pale.
“Where is he?” I demanded, clutching at my hair.
“Would you all like some water? You must be thirsty from all the trouble you’ve been causing.”
Westina shook her head, and Cassian nodded vigorously.
I glared at Dovey, who was filling two glasses of water with her wand.
“What did you do?” I growled.
Dovey said nothing and handed one of the glasses to Cassian. She twirled the straw in the remaining cup in silence. I felt a spark of dread develop at her nonchalant demeanor.
Dovey sighed and set down her glass. “I called his mother.”
I blinked. “Wait, really?”
Behind me, I heard Cassian spit out his drink.
I shot a glare at him, but by now he was shaking from bouts of laughter.
“Yes, really,” Dovey said, stacking some papers on her desk. “We need to go over some issues.”
“What kinds of issues?” Cassian asked, still snickering. “I mean, Danny is so stable and so clearly sane. What issues could he possibly have?”
Dovey didn’t seem to have caught the sarcasm in his voice. “Well, a lot of it has to do with his family problems, but he also has some anger management issues and some more…..deeply rooted problems that I am not at liberty to tell others, especially students.” At the last part, Dovey glanced over at Westina before she stared sternly at each of us. By now, Cassian had stopped laughing, his brow furrowed in thought.
“I trust all three of you can keep this incident to yourselves,” Dovey said, sipping her drink. “If I hear anything blowing around the school related to any of today’s or last night’s events, I’ll know exactly where to look.”
Sorry it’s short; I ran out of ideas
