Hearing Charlie’s voice stops Hyacinth in his tracks. He smirks and turns his head to look at her.
Charlie, speaking aloud: Stop…
She looks dejected and scared. She can’t bear to make eye contact with him. Hyacinth grins wider.
Hyacinth: So you CAN talk! I swear, they don’t push you girls hard enough here.
He continues walking, pulling her along with him.
Hyacinth: Things are going to be a lot different around here when the Minister of Education gets involved.
