She wondered whether she'd meet him again. It seemed doubtful - Berlin was a large city, so chances were slim. It was probably better this way - relationships outside the Academy were rather frowned upon. She sighed, turning the page in her book, unable to concentrate. Stop thinking about him...! she scolded herself. She never allowed herself to get attached - she wasn't going to start now.
Sadie's phone buzzed, indicating a call. "Hello? Right, um, ok...? Am I in trouble?" she asked, a confused expression on her face. "If it's about the sneaking out, that's already been dealt with; no need to bring it up again..."
Getting up, she got her coat and headed out, letting the door slam shut behind her. As she walked across the school grounds she contemplated not showing up at all, just leaving for the night and heading to a club or something. Maybe attempt to find Ryan again, Maija in tow. Oh how she was tempted not to show up to the meeting.
But the blonde knew that she'd be in even more trouble if she didn't show up. So it was with much reluctance that she showed up at William's office. She knocked once before entering. "Sadie Carlisle. You wanted to see me?"
The lenient rule was mainly so the older students could still have a somewhat 'normal' life over the weekends - they could go out to clubs and bars as long as they arrived back at the Academy before the night was out. However it leniency only applied on weekend nights.
It had been a Thursday when she'd snuck out, but Sadie was going to defend herself until the end. "Look, I wasn't doing anything to undermine the integrity of the Academy, if that's what you're worried about."
At William's next words, Sadie's green eyes widened and a look of pure incredulity came upon her pretty features. "Compromise his integrity?!" she sputtered, looking mildly sick at the suggestion. "Surely you can't be insinuating what I think you are, Mr Barnes...!" Now there was a gross thought - her and John. The blonde shook her head vehemently at the suggestion. "He's... No, just no."
"Nothing is going on between Professor Mason and me!" Sadie yelped, looking at William as if he was nuts. "That's just gross on so many levels. First of which being because he's my grandfather!"
Sadie would have revelled and gloated at William's obvious embarrassment over having misjudged the situation had she not been still grossed out. "Yeah, well, for someone who works at a spy school you don't really know how to gather correct facts," she muttered under her breath. As if she'd sleep with a teacher just to better her grades; Sadie had too much integrity for that.
"Is it a regular occurrence around the school then, students sleeping their way through their classes?" she asked, rather curious now that her grouchiness over the disturbing accusation was fading. "Seeing as that was the first conclusion you jumped to..."
