The Situation

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!

  2. Interesting that the one thing the principal seems not to be considering is that someone else might have defaced the locker.
