Catching Up

"I'm not Aldrest."

Shizuma turned around. She had tears in her eyes and she quickly wiped them away. "Joanne, where have you been?" She eyed the makeshift bandage I had made. "What happened?"

I lay down on one of the cots, wincing. "Neil happened. He has gone crazy. He's killing students."

"We know."

"You do?"

"The guys got in a fight with him. He hurt Kyle and Axel pretty badly."

"He fought both of them at the same time?"

"He fought three of them at the same time. Somehow he has gotten really powerful." She put her head in her hands. "I knew this competition was a bad idea."

That reminds me. I took the yellow handkerchiefs out of my pocket and laid them  on the table. "Has anyone else come back yet?"

"No."

"Do you have any idea of what is going on?" I looked at her hopefully.

"No, I don't. But If we don't figure this out soon..."

I didn't hear the rest. I guess I'd fallen asleep.

The End
