Kirsten hands over twenty bucks. "Paypal me or I take it out of you some other way."

Permalink

"Don't tempt me."

Alicia takes the money, dashes down the hall, drops downstairs four-steps-at-a-time again, and returns to the parking lot.

Permalink

The driver accepts her money and zooms away.

"A cab. Really?"

 

An Atlanta appears beside Alicia, perched on the narrow curb between lawn and asphalt.

Permalink

"How long have you been watching..?"

Permalink

"Since you got back to your dorm room. I've had an eye on it for the past half hour. It's getting easier and easier for me to multitask. Pretty soon, I think I might be able to watch the whole campus at once."

Permalink

"So... know where I can get twenty bucks?"

Permalink

"Yeah. While you were out, I set up a little scavenger hunt."

Permalink

 

 

"...what?"

Permalink

"Check around back."

 

The Atlanta vanishes.

Alicia circles the dorms.

 

Their building's built along the edge of a hill, with a moderate slope spilling out behind it. There's a wooden staircase leading up onto a porch behind the dormatory's back doors. A few picnic tables are set up on the porch, intended as an outdoor study area but in practice they don't see much use.

Permalink

"So." An Atlanta sits on the railing at the wooden platform's edge, just beside the staircase. "Find me something with teeth but no mouth. Something that wears a ring with no fingers."

Permalink

Alicia climbs the stairs and surveys the porch, seeing nothing dental or jewelry related anywhere on the landing.

"...ooooor you could just swing by the dorms and slip a couple bills under Kirsten's door?"

Permalink

"Humor me."

Permalink

Alicia searches the slope next. Finds a whole lot of grass and several pieces of junk that do not in any way resemble her cryptic counterpart's riddle.

Permalink

Then she glances back at the underside of the porch. And at the dark recesses where that underside joints the slope at the base of the dormitories.

Permalink

She raises a hand in the direction of the darkness, chuckles to herself, and says: "Lumos!"

 

The space lights up.

 

She spots something glinting near the center of the illuminated expanse and skitters up to retrieve it.

Permalink

Overhead, the Atlanta is clapping.

 

"There you go, finally thinking like a MG!"

Permalink

"Oh. A key ring. Har har."

 

Alicia emerges from under the porch with her prize and climbs the steps again.

Permalink

"It'll get you into my dorm room. You can help yourself to any of my old things from there."

Permalink

Okay then.

 

Alicia heads upstairs, rifles through Atlanta's dorm room, and then returns to her own hall with a wad of money in hand.

 

"Hey." She knocks on Kirsten's door with a wing-knuckle. "You still around?"

Permalink

Kirsten opens the door. "Yeah? You got my money?"
