Key Nine: Trouble:
That Old Panda stared me down. I gave him a puzzled look.
"What?" I asked.
"Is this true?" he asked. I tried to laugh it off at first.
"Of course not!" I lied. I stopped laughing when I saw the Panda glaring at me. I lowered my head.
"I'm sorry," I muttered.
"Don't apologize to me," the Panda hissed. "You know what happens when angels mate with humans." I quickly shushed him before looking over at the bathroom.
"Not so loud," I whispered. Bookman gave me a strange look. It didn't take him long to see what the problem was.
"You didn't tell her what you were, did you?" he asked.
"No," I said through clenched teeth. That old Panda flicked out his cigarette.
"This is not good," he whispered.
"I know," I muttered. We looked up when heard the bathroom door open. Ami stood in the doorway looking at the both of us.
"Am I interrupting anything?" she asked.
"Where are your parents?" that Old Panda asked. Ami pressed her lips together as she gave him a blank stare. The expression on her face threw me for a loop. I expected her to throw back a snotty comment at him.
"Why?" she asked in a high-pitched yelp.
"Ami!" we all heard an old lady yell. Before we had the chance to respond, said old lady opened my door with a slam.
