I was about to be arrested.
That was my first thought when a flash of movement outside
the window caught my attention.
But when you’d illegally let yourself into your school on a Sunday, these
were the worries that plagued a girl.
Acting on instinct, I hurled myself off the piano stool and onto the floor,
scuttling to the windows overlooking the quad. Maybe they hadn’t seen me
yet. The late afternoon sun was sinking, and perhaps, if I was lucky, the glare
would temporarily blind them. I could make my escape out one of the back
doors. There was an exit in the administration hall. Others in the math and
history wings. Of course, not one anywhere near the music rooms. Helpful.
Ever so carefully, I lifted to peer out the window, and yelped at the face
on the other side. I ducked down again, though there was no chance he hadn’t
seen me, what with his nose an inch from the glass.
I was totally busted. But at least it wasn’t the police.
Lawson’s laughter on the other side of the window made me realize how
ridiculous I was being. I stood, embarrassment heating my face.
“You want to let me in?” he yelled.
I squeezed my eyes closed but nodded. “I’ll meet you at the door.”
Scrambling down the hall, I tried to come up with a plausible story that
would result in the least amount of trouble. I still had nothing by the time I

My uncle stood on the other side, boxes of his work balanced
precariously in his arms. He shifted beneath their weight, sending a USB
stick and a pile of papers sliding off the top. They fluttered down around our

runaway pages. I glanced up at his familiar face. “Before you say anything,
just remember, I’m your favorite niece.”
“You’re my only niece,” he grumbled, but there was still a hint of
laughter in his voice.
I put the papers back on top, then took the box from him, lightening his
load. “Which means you won’t have me arrested?”
He kicked the doors closed behind him. “Well, that depends on how
quickly you start explaining why you’re at school on a Sunday night, instead
of at Meredith’s, which is where you said you were going. How did you even
get in here without tripping the alarm? If you broke a window, I won’t be
impressed.” He walked toward his office.
I hurried to keep up. “No, no. All windows are intact. I used the code.”
“What? How do you even know it?”
I snorted, then remembered I was probably about to be grounded until I
turned eighteen. Which, admittedly, was only a couple of weeks away. But
still. I tried to force my expression into something more suitably chastised.
“Sorry. But you’ve been driving me to school and unlocking that door in
front of me for the past three years. The code is my birthday. Just like all
