Rowland walked with Eliza through the school’s hallways. After his encounter with the creature, as he was calling it, he refused to let Eliza out of his sight.
As they reached her class, Rowland saw a black blur zip down the hall and into the women’s restroom behind Eliza.
“I’m going to stop by the bathroom before I start teaching. See you later,” Eliza said as she turned to leave.
“Wait!” Rowland said, grabbing her arm. “I think I heard the maintenance man say one of the toilettes was out of order. Maybe use the one down the hall?”
“Okay, thanks for the tip.” Eliza walked away as Rowland exhaled with relief. He had successfully saved her life, though he feared it would not be the last time.
