The next day I cautiously walked into the studio. I was going to make sure I wasn't alone with the director again. I also decided not to tell anyone about what happened after Dan left. I opened the door and grinned when I saw that Dan was waiting for me.
“I wanted to call you last night.”
"In all the time we've been working together, you now want to call me? Why?"
“I just wanted to make sure things were okay with you. Mr. Figs said you rather in a hurry.”
"Yeah... Well... He wouldn't know, wouldn't he?"
"Never mind. It's not important." I started to walk away, but Dan grabbed my hand gently. I looked into his eye but then turned away.
"Sunflower, tell me what's going on, please? I want to help."
"You can't help with this, Dan."
Mr. Figs cleared his throat. Dan and I jumped apart from each other. “Sunny, stay after rehearsal. We have some unfinished business to take care of.”
Dan glanced at me, but I just shrugged. I couldn't tell him that I was afraid of Mr. Figs, could I? I had to take matters into my own hands this time and that is what I was going to do.
