I skid to a halt on the dry path outside the school, dust billowing up around my feet. I'm late, late again. Oh great work Falcon, just send my closest friend off to some school somewhere and don't tell me till the day after. I run into the building and find Maylee.
"Finally, I thought I'd never find you!" I pant out, exausted after running all the way here. I collapse onto the seat next to her.
