Holly smiled sweetly as Bernard gave her the glasses. “Sir?” Trey asked. “We’d like to talk to you about battle.”
“I know.” Bernard said with a laugh, tapping his head. “How easy is it for you all to forget I read minds?”
Trey cracked a smile. “So what do you think? We’ve never tried it before.”
Bernard didn’t answer for a long time until he finally agreed. “Fine. Okay.” He nodded for affect but the two teens could tell he was extremely worried.
“Just mind?” Holly asked hopefully.
“No.” Bernard rubbed his forehead and said, “If you’re going to do it, physical and emotional is best. Draw yourselves up a chart and record wins. Be finished by the Honors Event though.”
“Yes sir.” Trey said happily. He gave Bernard a departing nod and Holly added a smile before Bernard vanished from the room. Trey turned to Holly with a smirk. “I’ll make the chart. Make it easy for you, Holly.”
“Oh please.” She snapped, “Like you’ve ever actually cared about anyone. Especially me.”
“I care about you, Holly. Gimme a hug.”
