The Continuing Saga

Okay, peeps, another sneak peep at part of my next novel.

Trollop sat at her desk alternating her glare between the wizard and Sally, before settling her eyes on the new girl. The wizard’s expression was as calm and as irritating as usual, so Trollop decided to narrow in on the girl, who looked down at her feet and fiddled with her hands.
“You have been trouble since you arrived it would seem. Not only have you started a riot in the dining room, you have turned one of my best boys into a rat and terrified the cook. What do you have to say for yourself.”
“Not much I would imagine,” Said the wizard. “Especially with you glaring at her like that. She’s frightened.”
“She’s a killer.”
“Only by accident. Her brother was tormenting her about her magic and she lost control. Her parents, who favoured the boy, remonstrated with her, her father hit her and in a fit of temper she turned the parents into cats and kicked them out of the house.” He placed a hand on Sally’s shoulder. “Besides, why was she sent here when she has other relatives to care for her?”
Trollop was surprised. How did the wizard know all this?
The Banana aethograph on Trollop’s desk pinged and a message popped up telling her she had a new aethermail in her Poodle account. It was marked urgent. She looked at the wizard. “I have to deal with this. It’s urgent. Please wait outside."

That's all for now.  See you on Friday.
