Chapter 3

"Return the remote to me," she said in a low voice that bordered on a growl. The few students who saw what was going on had their eyes glued to the teacher's face. They secretly wondered what the punishment would be if the culprit didn't fork over the remote. She looked from one face to the next of the boys sitting in the front row. Her face had a stern and unyielding look about it, like someone who had weathered storms rougher than this one.

The boys in the front row were famous for aggravating any new substitute teacher. Their pranks were almost legendary yet school had only been in session for seven weeks. Alexander Monroe, Brett Ryder, Alan Jacobs and Roy Landry all sat with smirks on their faces avoiding the glance of the teacher-turned-huntress. "If you don't give me the remote now, all of you in the front row will be punished. This quickly wiped the smile off of three of the faces, which now looked slightly incredulous. The last boy smiling, Brett Ryder was obviously the troublemaker, and now the teacher knew it. Brett slowly pulled the remote from his desk and pushed it across his desk towards her, never looking her in the eye. "Thank you," she said in a very different, almost purring voice. "Let's hear the rest of the announcements now," she said and walked back to her desk slowly and deliberately, surveying the rest of the class for any more disturbances. The substitute returned the television volume back to normal and everyone visibly began to relax again.
