The Excuse

You know, I don’t normally do this. Lie to get out of trouble, I mean. But then again I’d never have to face the wrath of Professor Snape in Double Potions first thing Monday morning. Look at that deadly combination and I can see your lips quivering. So, I had to do it. But of course I also had to be smart about it. Good thing I had all this knowledge stored in my mind, huh?

The Burglar
It was the end of May and the weather was beautiful, warm and sunny, with a slight gently breeze to keep one from over heating.
