Adrian had to gather his thoughts for a moment. "Look, Kalo... Weird things happen in this school a lot. You know that, I know that, everyone knows that. But something weird happened to me when you and Isack were holding the door." He swallowed hard. "I could feel everything each of you were doing, including the hound even though I couldn't see him. And then when his tongue was coming through..." A wave of doubt hit him, but he pressed on.

"I felt like I could transfer some of your strength to Isack for a moment. The second I did that, the door slammed shut and the tongue was cut off. Did you feel anything in that moment?" Adrian looked at his feet for a moment. "Like, sort of feint for a bit? I know I didn't imagine all of that!" he added, desperate for a kind of preliminary defense.
