Sage and I had some fun in the wake of my meeting Dev and Dee. It was a unqiue experience. Sage asking a lot of questions about what I wanted. What I needed. He seemed very keen on the idea of sharing me with others. I wasn’t sure about it still, but I was happy to make Sage happy. He was like a new person.
I was up and ready by 6am. I had breakfast and the kids moving by 7 and we were all at the AU building by 8 on time and ready to go for our days. It was Saturday, but I still lived in the building, and technically so did Matt. Though we spent most of our time at Sage’s. Matt had a special pass to stay with us. He couldn’t stay the night on the weekdays but every weekend he was with us.
We were still finding a place for Faelen. He wasn’t eager to go to school with Venatori. And I wouldn’t be after what he’d been through. But he didn’t want to be around other therians. The idea scared him more than it did being with the Venatori. And I wasn’t sure I wanted him in a human school. We had a few more days to figure it all out before people cam knocking on our door.
But what surprised me most about the start of my day was that a note was sitting on my desk at work on top of all the files Dae’lin wanted me to look into. I still wasn’t doing field duty. I was lucky I wasn’t on mandatory leave after having been taken control of my a powerful dragon. And then I thwarted a Venatori ploy and now I was working against them, even though they didn’t know that yet.
The note read:
Dear Mr. Sétanta,
We have granted you an hour of time with Jeffery Taylor and Marvin Thomas starting at 8:30 today to extend till 10:30 in the fish bowl.
We realize there is a conflict in your schedule but this is the only time the boys are available.
Richard Weston, Headmaster
It was about damned time.
