Charlie stands up.
Charlie: There’s someone at the door, right?
Pepper nods as she also gets to her feet. Charlie opens the door slowly, with a creak. Aurelie is standing on the other side.
Aurelie: There you are. Why aren’t you three at lunch?
Pepper looks pissed, but doesn’t say anything.
Avery: Ate too much breakfast, I think!
Aurelie: Oh… well, don’t make a habit out of it. When the Minister of Education comes, it’s not going to look good if we have girls wandering all about. People like us need a strict schedule.
