I'd rather be a piece of cake

Hunter blinked, and kept blinking as Madeleine went on about how he was apparently the one who had locked Shifty away. He was pretty sure he wasn’t lying. But she was pretty adamant, so there was only one reasonable explanation. Taking her balled-up fists in his now large hands, Hunter held her eyes with his so she’d know he was earnest.

“Madeleine,” he said, “I have no idea what you’re talking about. I know you don’t know me very well, but I’d never do something like that. And besides, I’m not very powerful. Ask anyone. There’s no way I’d be able to stick Shifty in the passageways without Professor McKindy being able to undo it. I wouldn’t even know where to start with something like that!

“But,” he continued, “if you’re this certain I had something to do with it, there’s only one reasonable explanation.” He took a breath. This was not a comfortable concept to be facing.

“Someone must be impersonating me.”

Hunter let go of Madeleine’s hands and leaned back a little, putting his hands up to ward off, at least for a moment, the next rant he was sure must be coming. “I know that sounds crazy,” he admitted, “but I think it makes a certain amount of sense. If someone wanted to lock shifty away and blame it on someone else, maybe they thought I wouldn’t be here for a little while so they somehow disguised themself as me and done it in a way that you’d eventually find out about it and think it really was me! Luckily though I am actually here so now we have a chance to figure this out.”

Leaning an elbow on the table, Hunter put his pondering hand on his pondering chin and pondered. “The only question now,” he said slowly, “is why would someone want to lock shifty away and make you think it was me?”

        Toby took her hands and if it weren’t for the fact that she wasn’t a liar like him she would have screamed “Stranger danger!” but she wasn’t a liar, so Madeleine just stood there feeling tiny. It... more
