I heard Mom coming down the hall well before she charged through the door, questions pouring out of her. "What's wrong? Are you okay? You didn't blow up anything, did you? What happened? Are you hurt? You don't look hurt. What happened?" she snapped at the mages. Two jumped back and the one I bumped into burst into tears.
Dad, on the other hand, strolled in with a cup of lemonade in one hand, a sugar cookie in the other.
Mr. Grady cleared his throat. "No one was hurt." He paused for a moment. "Mr. Hale. Mrs. Hale. I fear I have some unfortunate tidings. It pains me to have to tell this to anyone, let alone to a distinguished couple such as yourselves, whom I have always regarded as pillars of our fine commun-"
"Get to the point," Mom exploded.
"She's an ord."
"Beg your pardon?" Dad asked. Only Dad could sound totally relaxed and totally serious at the same time, while eating a cookie.
"She didn't even make it past the first stage," said Mr. Grady. "She has nothing. She is nothing. She's an ord."
