Ms. Greer and “The Cursed Child”
“Nothing’s as easy as it looks,” Bradley gasped. He fell to the floor from the second-story library window.
“I didn’t think you’d make it.”
“So, you can climb faster than me. It was my idea to cut off the alarms’ systems to the second floor detectors.”
“Yes, I agree. You are the #1 geek. They’d better have two copies. You promised.”
“They will. Saw the invoices when I was helping Ms. Greer unload the boxes from UPS.”
“Where do we go next?” asked Silvia.
“Storage room 207C. All the stuff is placed there before it is cataloged for the shelves.”
“Another great geek fact.”
“Without it, we’d have to look in every box.”
“I didn’t mean to imply that being a geek was without its benefits.”
“Got the mini-lights? Can’t cut on the lights. There’s a window to the outside.”
“You know everything…”
“I try…. Top box on the left are the new ones. I placed them to the side before I left school.”
“It’s here,” squealed Silva. “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Wait…. This book is stamped To Be Shelved March 1, 2016. How can this book be here? It hasn’t been released!
“There’s a lot you don’t know about our librarian,” mused Bradley.
