Well that was a relief. Teal wasn’t racist, which was good because Kit really didn’t want to have to have Darby wait in her bag for the entire class period, but she also didn’t want to get in trouble for having Darby out.

She even hit him.” Darby dropped the bean and skittered towards Teal, prodding her arm with one of his hairy legs. Kit giggled again. “Aww, he likes you!” she cooed, scooping the tarantula up and booping one of his legs with her nose. “Such a good tarantula,” Kit said, putting Darby back down on the table.
