Allanah and Suzanne both took a seat, and glanced at each other, both wondering what he had planned. The large clock in the corner ticked away the minutes, while the scratch of Professor Dayton’s stylus on the screen of his tablet went on.

The sound of it made Allanah shudder. She could practically feel the sound, and had to take a few deep breaths, as a wave of nausea washed over her. This was why she chose not to use a stylus with her own devices. Her friends found it amusing, but just accepted it as some strange quirk.

The Professors, and her parents, not so much, instead, choosing to believe that she was just being ‘fussy’ and ‘difficult’, though she had tried on numerous occasions to explain it to them. Suzanne gave her a sympathetic look. While she didn’t understand it, she had seen the reaction her friend had to this particular stimuli on many occasions, and knew that this must be torture for her.

After what felt like forever, Professor Dayton looked up, and Allanah was surprised to see that he was smiling at them.

“Well, young ladies.” He looked at them as if expecting some kind of response. They cast sideways glances at each other.
