but you like an audience

Bella arrives early to her next gym class, too. Delaney's not there yet, which is annoying, because he knows how to solve a puzzle.

Charlie knows a few things about Delaney and his family. The most interesting thing is this: Delaney appeared in the hospital with broken ribs, once. He did not do this crowing about how much fun it was to be stomped on/thrown down the stairs/whatever. He did this with no explanation at all. Charlie doesn't need victim cooperation to press charges for battery - but he does need someone to press charges against.

And no one at school saw a thing.

Audiences, indeed.

edgeofyourseat: Smiling, conspiratorial or challenging. (⑷ wanna try?)

"Maybe they asked reeeally nicely," he suggests, distorting the word to at least three times its normal length and adding a wink to make his intended meaning more clear.

He shakes his head. "Sorry, babe," he says, "you're not gettin' the story out of me that easy." Brightly, "But cheer up! Now if I piss you off you've got a great way to make my life hell for a while!"
edgeofyourseat: Sarcastic or disbelieving. (⑺ back into your place)

He shrugs. "And look at me, not asking."
