War of the Chalk GolemsWar of the Chalk Golems
Nicolas rode his bike to the playground behind the school and saw Edward making the preparations, though for what he had no idea. He locked his bike onto the school's bike rack and made his way over to Edward.
"Look, let's just forget about this. It's a Saturday. We can go to the mall for a bit if you want, though not for long. I've got to cut my grass." Nicolas was lying, but even cutting the grass was fascinating compared to being with Edward.
"No, you really do have to see this," Edward said.
"See what? I was told there was a wager of five bucks, but I don't even know what we're betting on."
Edward smiled and made a sweeping motion with his hand across the schoolyard pavement.

It was one of those deliciously lazy afternoons which only the summer in her full glory can bring. The room had a wan, listless light to it, relaxing the other guests and myself as we languidly chatted over tea and crumpets. The air was also sluggishly heavy, dulling the senses to a slowly-blended calm engendered by the heat of St. Othniel's southerly climate.
At length, after much stimulating conversation, Christopher stood, producing a book of sheet music.

"Certainly," I answered.
"Oh yes, please do darling!" Tabitha exclaimed, "he's quite the maestro."
Christopher laughed, shaking his head.
