“Uh, sorry?” Audrey was meant to cough out a simple, one-worded apology but her tone made it sound more like a question. As if she wasn’t certain whether she really was sorry or not. She picked up her bow and a set of arrows, settling in place before looking her fellow camper right in the eye. “Ms. Ria dela Cruz, reprimanding me for the nth time. I guess letting me go would work to your and my advantage.”
She began to warm up, shot two or three dummy chests and waited for her trainer to react. She honestly hoped Ria wasn’t that angry because she herself was never fond of confrontations. They were a waste of time. That doesn’t necessarily mean she avoided them though. “Really, just woke up late, that’s all.”
Ria rolled her eyes at Audrey’s immaturity. She disliked Audrey’s insincerity and lack of concern for, if not all, most everything. But that wasn’t any of Ria’s concerns. Audrey could skip all of her classes for all Ria cared, but not on Ria’s watch.
“That sorry could’ve been just a little more believable if you actually meant it.” She snapped as she waved at the other campers, signalling for them to continue their training. “Well, since you’ve gallantly showed us that you don’t need to attend these advanced archery classes, why don’t you show us all how good you are. 25 consecutive bulls-eyes, miss one then you’re back to square one.” She said as she walked towards the other with her arms folded over her chest, as she slightly narrowed her eyes and glared at Audrey. She stopped a few inches from Audrey and turned around. “Everyone else, water break.” She announced with a smirk.
