Okay, last week’s vote was a tie, so I’m going to include both choices in today’s storyline.
Professor Taylor pulled me aside after class. I thought he was going to lecture me on the fact that I sort of caved to pressure from the class for this week’s assignment. Last week, Jillian Lawrence complained that my angel had no face, so this time I gave them what they wanted, only I kept his face hidden with the mask I drew for him. But instead of getting a lecture on how an artist must be the master of their work, the good professor had three words of advice for me. “Seize the day,” he said. I could have pretended that I had no idea what he was talking about, but why waste his time or mine? I knew exactly what he was referencing. He basically was saying that I needed to stop being such a chicken and tell my masked angel how I felt about him. That was easier said than done. I told him I would think about it, but the moment I stepped outside the classroom, walked down the hall and turned the corner I realized I didn’t have much time to contemplate my decision when I looked up to find my masked angel waiting for me.
He smiled, ever so sweetly. I loved that smile. “You know,” he walked closer to me. “The masked angel looks kind of familiar.” And that’s when I knew—there was no getting around it. I was going to have to tell Duncan the truth—unless…
What happens next?
- I confessed everything.
- I lied.
