Snow and Russell didn't look that disturbed or curious about her popping out from the stairs. Halberd came into the group from behind and Lace felt her face warm up and she shook her hands in his face before a fast "Aye, Halberd! How'd you sleep?" Lace backed off him and was rubbing her apple clean over her shirt. She half-opened her mouth but quit when she blanked on how she'd carry on with Halberd. She raised her head up a bit and after a quick glance to Russell and Snow, she dropped her smile and shifted over to Halberd's side.
"About the Court last night," Lace lowered her voice. "I don't know if you heard me over everything that was going on, but, I said some pretty horrible things about you." She spoke slowly after taking a new breath and placed a hand over Halberd's shoulder, "I'm sorry, and, I shouldn't have got like that, especially with you." Lace took a few steps to the now open door outside before back-pedaling back checking that they wouldn't be overheard. "There’s something I got to take care of with the nurse, but, you'll be at the cafeteria for lunch, right? Invite me over if you see me. I really want to talk some more."
A tray of milk, fruit, hamburgers, pizza, and whatever apple was left sat on Lace's tray as she rubbed her head staring at the meal. I hope I can squeeze in some ice cream before it gets too late. She stood with more energy on her weak leg now with her pants leg covering a small cast on her foot. After the dorms and unable to harass Wulfgard or Liza, she'd found a nurse, a charming woman, who treated the swelling and made the pain easier to bear. A brand new cherry lollipop in her mouth she left the food line with her tray and started to scan the tables for Halberd when there was an announcement.
"The following students, please report to Mr. Jones' classroom; Lace Condor-" her candy dropped on to her pizza as she stared around the ceiling and the intercom in confusion. What'd she do? The nurse said it was okay to skip class when she was helping me. She gave me a pass! Lace picked up and eyed the lollipop like it was poisonous. They called everyone else in her dorm to the office too, so, we're all in trouble? Lace ran over to a nearby table with three older-looking students and dropped her tray. "Can you watch this, please?" she asked them before her words became mumbled with the pizza now dangling from her mouth. She finished one hamburger and was halfway through the second as she jogged out of the cafeteria to the appointed room.
Lace was right in front of the door and after some quick body-stretching, she stood up straight and took another bite out of her pizza as she entered the room and what was hopefully a simple misunderstanding for everybody.
