It was half past seven, and Quatre was getting ancey...
Giving another long, deliberate look at the clock on the wall, as if staring at it long enough would melt away the minutes, make it so that Trowa wasn't late... the blond let out a scathing sigh, shutting his eyes. An optimist to his very core, he loathed to think that something might have gone wrong... was Trowa okay? With the happenings lately in the school...
"What on Earth?" His eyes were open again, and he strode quickly to the window, pulling aside the blind to be greeted by the sight of smoke and flames. Before his brain could accept the image before him, he heard the lock click, the door to his room being pushed open.
Professor H looked grim and out of breath. "Come with me." He croaked. Looking the boy over, he added. "If you want to help your friends, you'll need to come with me."
Quatre didn't have time to think. He followed the tottering man out of his room.
Granted, he hadn't realized what Professor H had meant by 'helping his friends'... but about an hour later, far away from the confines of the school, he'd have a much clearer, staler idea.
Whew, I forgot what a long trip it was from here to home! Especially when you travel back and forth between the two in a short number of days. It's tired me out... but no luck with getting rest tonight, I have a ton to catch up on.
Well, now, I ought to say where I disappeared to. I wasn't really MIA, in case anyone was worried. My older sister has just gotten married, and unfortunately, she planned the ceremonies during school (not that I'm complaining! She shouldn't have to match her schedule around mine, of course.) So I had to go home for a bit, to help celebrate.
The wedding itself was beautiful. I have a whole bunch of photos I plan to get developed as soon as time permits- though I'm not sure all of them I'd let people see. There are a few, um, embarrassing family ones... (Dad can get really interesting once he's had a few glasses of wine).
Anyway, I'm back now.
Trowa; I heard that your injuries were more complicated then we'd expected? I hope you're all right, and that everyone's kept safe. Speak to everyone soon!
