A Whateley Academy Adventure

Behind Kane Hall, Whateley Academy
Years of dodging revenuers made Bobby Earl cautious by nature, and he circled the parking lot behind Kane Hall twice, looking for anything that seemed out of the ordinary. Ducked down in a row of juniper bushes, hidden from view, he glanced at his watch. He had a few minutes to go before he was supposed to meet Officer Mendez, and he wasn't about to take chances. Not when there was a still at risk.
There was a slight rustle a dozen or so yards to his right, and he cautiously peered that direction, then looked around himself again. There! He spotted a shadow that seemed out of place against one of the cars, a shadow that hadn't been there only moments before. He looked more closely; the silhouette matched that of Officer Mendez. More surprisingly, the officer was looking his way.
