Ella looked back at the board. "So we're going tomorrow." she said after a moment of silence.

"Or more people will wind up dead- isn't that what you mean?" Ella asked, surpassing a grin. 

"Yes." Ezrah said, obviously trying not to laugh. "Of course, its not because he's as old as dirt and might drop any second." 

"No," Ella said, biting her lip. "It would be mean." 

"Yep. I just phrased it oddly." He grinned at her. Ella looked down at her watch and stood. 

"I need to go and do all my homework so I'm free tomorrow." She picked up her backpack and threw it over her shoulder, and left, hopping over the  nail polish lady and she walked home.
