Chris Perry smiled at the Welsh Springer Spaniel beside him. 'What do you think of this place, Jemmy?' he asked, jerking his head to the plot of land behind him. 'Do you think it's nice?'
Jemmy cocked its head and stared at Chris. The dog gave Chris the impression that Jemmy didn't care a bit about the land. Chris grew stern. 'Well, give me an answer.'
'Are you expecting the dog to talk to you?' said a voice.
Chris turned around to see Samantha de Hercules Conqueta, a member of Code X, smiling at him. 'Hey,' he said, leaving Jemmy as he walked towards Sam. 'What are you doing here?'
'Did you really have to ask?' Sam said in mock surprise. 'I thought you knew. Remember the Outdoor Week?'
Chris groaned. 'Right.' The Outdoor Week was what the students at Kelstorm Academy called the week-long conference that was currently taking place. Due to the amount of pressure inside the building, the student body seemingly decided as a whole to celebrate the week outdoors. 'What's the whole point of the meeting?'
'Not sure,' Sam said. She grinned at the dog. 'Is he yours?'
'Nope,' Chris laughed. 'Jemmy belongs to Taylor. I'm just helping her walk him.'
Sam raised an eyebrow. 'Speaking of Taylor, where's Her Majesty the Ice Queen?'
'Nowhere to be seen at the moment,' Chris grinned. 'If she heard that, you might not be here anymore.'
'I'll take my chances.' Sam turned back to where the others were waiting. 'Come join?'
Just as Chris was about to answer, he saw something that made him frown. 'Damn.'
What happens next? Give me ideas ppl.
