After chasing around Warren, Mal and Unseelie all day, I ended up standing in the middle of the woods in a salt circle surrounded by creatures trying to kill me, Kelvin and Rocky were in the Fae world trying to find Mal and then Warren went in after them. Around nightfall Whitewood decided they weren’t coming back soon, they’d gotten distracted; he didn’t seem surprised. Then I spent hours on the phone putting together cover stories that were a little ambiguous for why no one was going to school. I think Rocky’s mother loves me at this point, she was so excited when I told her we were going out of town shopping with my mother. This left me spending three days at Whitewood’s not able to go outside, it was a little awkward spending that much time with a teacher.
If nothing wakes him up then I swear he sleeps until noon, so I cheated a little everyone loves the smell of coffee in the morning. So I enticed him to wake up earlier with breakfast. I don’t think he’s had anyone cook a meal for him in a long time. The thing about hanging out with a teacher…all they do is teach. By day two I was making deals to have him stop forcing math and magic at me around the time school normally ends, I couldn’t take anymore. We spent the second evening pretty much ignoring each other. I watched tv and he read a book, that worked for us. The third day was a little bit better, as we’d worked out a system for dealing with each other. Whitewood is a sad and lonely man…it’s a bit depressing. I totally called him on throwing magic around his backyard, that Devyn was trying to do for months, his face was priceless. Apparently I wasn’t suppose to figure it out. Then he told me what happened to all of the half-stars from before…not pretty. It was a really weird three days…..really weird.
