Is that all? the nervous mother asks the lady in the pink-framed glasses.
The lady looks over the paperwork. She doesn’t say anything for a few seconds.
The mother begins twirling her red vibrant hair, anxiously waiting for a response. She scoots her chair near her husband.
The lady turns to the couple with a smile on her face. Yes, she says, everything is in order. Your children will be accepted into James Micason Middle School. Our methods of teaching have been trusted for 40 years. We know your children will adjust to our faculty very quickly. Why, they’ll be ready for high school by the end of September in 6th grade?
Oh, the mother sighs, That’s good to know. Come on Bammer, let’s go home.
As the couple exits through the door, the strange lady begins to smile evilly. She presses a button on her phone.
Sir, she says in a menacing voice, we got new suckers- I mean recruits.
