Happy Caturday, all!
Here’s another snippet from Psyche’s story. To meet the content limit I left out one sentence between last week’s and this one—hopefully it’ll still make sense. Last week’s is available here, or you can scroll a little way to find it.
“But you didn’t die along with Suvi. You have a long life ahead of you and I’d be remiss if I didn’t do everything in my power to make sure it’s a good one.”
Twice in one day Psyche was dumbstruck. To her horror she felt tears burn up behind her eyes. Nobody had mentioned her sister casually in such a long time, let alone by name. The outrage she’d normally feel didn’t have time to spring to her defense.
Principal Seymour straightened and took a deep breath, palms flat on the cold metal of the desk; it was so cold goose bumps had broken out along the principal’s arms. “I don’t mean to be cruel, but instead of the broad discretion past principals have shown your behavior I want you to consider any special treatment you received in the past as rope. Please do not use it to hang yourself in my school.”
Thanks for reading!
