A/N: Check out the first Sunday Blog in which I talk about where I’m at with life and writing.Â While topics will vary it is going to be a regular thing.
A/N2: I finished this a bit late so the edited version isn’t back yet, so this is the raw version. Will post the edited version once I have it.
â€œI’m not getting any particular alarms from the thought of Dan doing this,â€ Sonia said. â€œWhich suggests that it might not be a disaster if he does. I’m still not happy about it, but that might just be a mother’s worry.â€
â€œIt probably is,â€ Daniel said. â€œYou do fuss, mum. We’ll need an escape plan for me if I’m going to do this.â€
â€œI’ll teach you to teleport,â€ Anthony said. â€œI’m already teaching Selene. You’ll be able to run then if you need to.â€
â€œHmm… I’m not entirely happy about this idea,â€ Matthias said. â€œBut the potential is to great to not risk it. We have to make sure the government can’t brainwash or experiment on those kids and I don’t think Selene can do that alone.â€ He smiled at Selene. â€œNo offense, sweetie, it’s just that you’re just one person.â€
â€œNone taken,â€ she said. â€œI couldn’t agree more.â€ She tapped her fingers on the table. â€œMel’s coming to school here right? That’s going to be the riskiest bit if anyone finds out.â€
â€œHmm… yes…â€ Matthias said. â€œA pretty problem. How do we hide your relationship to us…â€
Daniel frowned at his soup as he considered the problem. â€œAnthony’s been on the run from his family for a while, right? Do the authorities know he was here?â€
â€œThey shouldn’t,â€ Anthony said. â€œWhat are you thinking?â€
â€œDon’t hide it, at least not completely,â€ he said. â€œFake an emergence for her a couple of weeks into term after Mel is here.â€
â€œTell them you’ll train her yourself because you worry about your family if you send her to Brierthorne and let them talk you into sending her to their school instead,â€ Matthias said.
â€œThat’s risky,â€ Sonia said. â€œWhat if they don’t buy your reasons?â€
â€œNothing about this is unrisky,â€ Anthony said. â€œI think that idea has got potential except they mustn’t find out Sal is Selene’s godmother or they won’t entirely trust her. On the other hand if they think she’s the main spy they won’t be looking elsewhere.â€
â€œSo me, Daniel and Lisa?â€ Selene said. â€œThat works for me… I like Lisa, we’ve been training together.â€ She smiled at Daniel. â€œI’m sure you’re cool as well but I don’t really know you yet so I can’t really comment.â€
Daniel chuckled. â€œI understand. Well if we do this, and I think we have to do this, we’ll have the chance to correct that. Do we know where they are putting the school?â€
â€œCumbria,â€ Sonia said. â€œJust a stone’s throw from the Morgan’s holiday home, actually, though they don’t know that.â€
â€œWell, that’s convenient at least,â€ Daniel said. â€œWe can’t be seen to be getting on too well with the staff if this is to work, so we can pass on information through there. So are we agreed that we’re doing this?â€
â€œIt’s dangerous as all hell,â€ Sonia said quietly. â€œBut I think we have to.â€
