Mrs. Loser
 
“Class.”
Stiletto heels on the tiled floor. Click-clack, click-clack to the front of the room.
A full class rustles with anticipation. Whispers flit through the room like bats in a cave.

Is she the new teacher?

What do we… 

What happened to…

A Lesson in Music Theory
 
i. adagio: a slow tempo
