“Earth to Lil to Lil Falcon….”

I cringed and peered at Mr. Sorenson. He was still in front of the class, but it wouldn’t be long before he was in my face. The entire class turned to look at me.

“Do you think you can pull your attention from your doodling and answer the question?”

“What question?”

The class snickered.

Today was a really bad day to mock me. I didn’t want to do this, but…. Shut up!

Everyone stopped laughing.

Face forward.

They turned away from me and faced the board. Power of persuasion to the rescue, again. Hopefully, the amount of energy I had used was too low to be detected by our security, the Civilian Psi team, or Leather Face. I was probably already in trouble for the rescue I had pulled outside the school.

“The one we’ve been discussing at length for the last fifteen minutes,” Mr. Sorenson continued. “Would you like to answer it, or would you prefer to share the masterpiece you’re working on with the class?”

He started walking toward me. My heart dropped. I couldn’t deal with another humiliating moment at the hands of this teacher. The page in front of me had drawings of demons with bat-wings and horns, raven heads and black eyes. At the top, the name Valafar was underlined several times.

“Can you repeat the question?” I asked, closing the book.

“Why would a car traveling at a constant speed have different velocities?”

I hadn’t the faintest idea. Trying not to panic, I located Christian, the class genius, and read his thoughts. “If it is moving in a circle?”

“And why is direction important when it comes to velocity and not speed?”

No idea. Bug somebody else already.

“Come on, Miss Falcon. You must have heard something I said this morning. Or maybe if you rubbed those charm bracelets you are so fond of, the spirits might give you an answer.”

She shrugged. “That was Goddess Xenia’s way of dealing with male arrogance. She saw how our forefathers abuse their power by taking many mates. That’s why we are matriarchal.”

“So do you have someone in mind for a mate?” I asked tentatively.

Kim bit her lower lip, and for a brief moment I was sure she wouldn’t respond.

“Why don’t you go for a swim too instead of interrogating me?” she said.

“Nah,” I said, shaking my head. I’d done enough scuba-diving. Bran and his ability to trap pockets of air under water made scuba diving quite an experience.

“Don’t want to cause a riot?” Kim asked with a mocking smile that usually bugged me. Not today though. Beach times were rare this summer and I wasn’t about to let her spoil it for me.

“What do you mean?”

“Guys act like idiots around you,” Kim said with a dry chuckle. “Bran. Sykes. The Academy students. Teachers. Even the Security Guardians here on the island.”

Bran and Sykes, yes. “Come on.”

“Haven’t you noticed how they stare when you walk by, look for a reason to talk to you? The teachers think you are adorable. It’s quite…annoying. Everyone knows you and Bran are together.”
