Drabble #348

VI: don’t panic.

“We can’t,” said Arthur wisely. “It’s against the rules.”

Martin frowned. “What rules? No wait, don’t tell me. There’s a big fat guidebook with ‘Don’t Panic’ embossed on the back…”

“No,” said Arthur, eyes lighting up, “But that sounds great! Mum, d’you think–”

“He’s teasing you,” said Carolyn. “With a period-specific literary reference, no less. Good luck, Martin. All the books Arthur’s read are thirty-eighth century or later.” 

“Not true! I’ve read White Fang!” 

“Ah, yes. That was published while we were stranded in 1906. We were there for three weeks, but with Arthur’s chapter-summaries it felt like thirty.”


 → Academically, Lydia’s one of the finest students I’ve ever had. Her A.P. classes push her G.P.A. above a 5.0. I’d actually like to have her I.Q. tested. And socially she displays outstanding leadership qualities. I mean, she’s a real leader. (happy belated birthday, @banshee-lydia!)
