“If It Means a Lot to You”

story by Mabel Harper & Emrys Webb
written by Emrys Webb


Jules hadn’t told Enforcement—or anyone else besides Rory—what had happened to his office. He’d known from the start who’d done it. He’d taken steps to prevent a recurrence: placed a seal on the door, and Ordinators to guard it. Involving the authorities, he reckoned, wasn’t worth the risk of them snooping around, potentially figuring out what he was working on.

“Let no one enter,” he instructed the stone-faced sentinels as he locked up at the end of the workday, cast the seal, and started off down the hall.

Silas Eads, Teddy Grenville, and some other Hunter yes-men were hanging around near the bend in the hallway, watching him with predatory grins.

Jules looked first Eads, then Grenville in the eyes as he passed. “No more loitering in the hallways, Scholars. Doing so is punishable by suspension and demotion, effective immediately.”

“You’re going down, bitch,” one of them said as he walked away.

Jules stopped, turned back with a humorless smile. “I hope that was worth saying, seeing as I’ve heard it about a million times before. You’re all demoted one rank and suspended pending further disciplinary action. Get out of my department.”
