I slapped her, making her jump.

"Don't you dare ruin my career. I've worked long and hard for this, and I'm not gonna let some stupid girl ruin it. No matter what right she thinks she has, or who her daddy is."

"Well I'm sure he'll be pleased to here that." She hissed at me again.

"Will you listen to me? The reason you're doing this is because you think I lead Midnight on. Now I'm going to let you in on a secret. Her father told me something about her mother on the day she died. Something about her power, and that power was past on to Midnight. Now myself and the headmaster are the only ones who can help her, and I can't do that if I'm being attacked by you and your father. Do you want your friend to be ok?"

She nodded.

"Then I suggest you forget my 'dirty little secret' and concentrate on helping your friend."

"I still hate you."

"And I'm mature enough to ignore that."

I left her in the dark. I needed to sleep, or else talking to Midnight tomorrow would be difficult. I reached my room and collapsed on the bed.
