Like Your Mom
Arison looked up to see who had done the shouting. They were in library, no one should be that loud. It was one of the owls in the Other class. "What is it?" Arison asked.
"Elna went to the Other world. That means class is off!"
Arison felt his patients faded a bit and it could be heard in his voice. "If you don't like the class so much why did you sign up for it?"
He shrugged. "I just wanted the trip to the Other world."
"We have to learn about the world of the Others before we go. It'll keep us safe."
The owl sighed. "You went without a class and you're still alive." Arison opened his mouth, but he didn't get the chance to talk. "I hate to say this, especially to a male, but you sound just like your mom sometimes." Then he walked out of the library.
Arison stared after him. Like my mom? He thought. He loved Otulissa, but he wasn't sure how he felt about sounding like her.
