He hung up, paused to compose himself.
Not at all.
Stepping back inside the classroom, he returned to his seat, but didn’t sit down. Instead, he stepped up a little further to where Glory Girl sat and touched her shoulder. When she raised her head, he pointed to the door. She nodded, stood.
Hm? What does he want to talk to Glory Girl about?
Loss of family members?
When they were both in the hallway, he spoke, “Sorry to pull you away from that.”
She shook her head, golden curls swinging, “Not missing anything. I’ve already taken this class.”
Sooo, why are you here exactly? Just wanting to get away from some things, but still be around people?
“Oh. Then why are you here?”
“New Wave may be disbanding. My mom suggested that if I wanted to keep being a hero, I should consider joining the Wards. So I’m here, checking things out. Your leader and director okayed it.”
I see. They did lose a lot of manpower. Neither pun on that word intended, but both appreciated and endorsed.
I can’t blame them if some of the remaining members have decided to retire after the events of Extermination.
