What does one do when faced with two possibilities equally as dreadful as the other?
The professor thought about it for a bit.
Never think unless you want to lose time. You see, thinking and time are deep enemies. So deep one can’t find the bottom.
The professor’s way.
Options were dwindling, but being an adventurous professor, I decided to stay put and see what happened. After all, they might just walk by.
I bent down and pretended to look at a frog.
(It’s better to do that sort of thing. You see, when someone is coming along that you really want to talk to, but you don’t want that person to know that you really want to talk to them, it’s best to pretend to be busy with something very dreadful and boring. Not that frogs are boring.)
The professor must admit, I was curious to see what they were doing together.
The moment was come.
“Professor.” A voice from behind.
I spun quicker than a merry-go-round.
It was Mr. Magi. He’d never left.
“Are you coming?” he asked. “We must figure out what’s going on. Come.”
But it was kinda too late.
“Professor.” It was LottieOllie this time.
Mr. Magi’s eyes widened and he came over to where this professor was standing.
“Well, Lottie,” he said. “Have you turned from your dastardly ways?”
And this professor looked severely at Amelia. You see, I was trying to pose the same question to her with my eyes.
I don’t think it worked. Rats.
Lottie smiled. “And have you, Mr. Magi, decided to quit going about the Land on a foolish mission that will never end?”
“Young lady!” Mr. Magi scolded. He wasn’t angry. Not at all.
“Now that it’s been brought up,” I began, “what are you two doing together exactly?”
“We just met,” Amelia said.
“Rats and a heifer.”
Mr. Magi blinked twice–nay, thrice. “I don’t see any.”
And that’s when Schwarz Tauptinker came over. “Come on! The duel is going to start. And I want you to see me win–oh yeah!”
