A Whateley Academy Story
A Little R&R 3
Crystal Hall, Tuesday late morning, Oct 30th, 2007
I was sitting at my usual table for lunch, surrounded by my regular cast of unsavory characters. However, along with Alyss and Sapphire, today, we also had Monkeywrench eating with us. Monkeywrench had come over, mostly to talk to me about a project he’d been working on, and to ask if he could get some devisor brownies from me. Since we got that talk out of the way quickly, my furry friend had joined in on our other topics of conversation.
“Come on,” Monkeywrench exclaimed, gesturing to the notebook I had open beside my tray. “You shouldn’t be bringing school work into the cafeteria. It’s sacrilege…”
I closed my notebook with a wry smile, knowing that it was pointless to keep it open at this point. I hadn’t been able to look at my class notes since everyone had arrived, and the conversation had really started.
Sapphire gave me a curious look and said, “I assume that you’re an exemplar today.”
“How did you guess?” I asked her curiously.
However, it was Alyss who answered, “Because that is the only time you try reading your class notes at lunch.”
“True,” I admitted with a shrug. “That’s when I makes the most sense to do so.”
