Into the Raven’s Nest
I can still hear my heart beating in my ears and the rush of blood to my scalp. He pulled his chair back and came around in front of his desk.
“What do you think your punishment should be for this bad behaviour, Miss Bennett?” He’s so close to me I can smell his musky aftershave.
“Um… I don’t know?” I’m fifteen. I have never been sent out of the classroom, let alone in a principle’s office.
He leans down close to my face. The heart beat in my ears. Rush of blood. It feels like every hair on my body is standing straight up.
I’d heard rumours about him. This kind of thing.
