Happy Christmas Liss

The room was in darkness, the only light came from a computer monitor and the operators face was bathed in a peculiar green light. Matey peered through the porthole window of the heavy door and wondered. It was impossible to tell who had breeched one of the Chalet School’s strictest rules or what they were doing in the technology lab at twenty past three in the morning but Matey was renowned in the School for standing no nonsense and she was not about to start now.

Meanwhile the occupant of the room was tapping on the keyboard a look of concentration on her face, more from trying to stay awake than anything else and had no idea the School tyrant was watching her. She chuckled as she read the story she had found in her email. The author had certainly come up with an answer to the question many girls had asked about the Heads changing eye colour. She just had to use it.

Suddenly the door swung open and the florescent strip lighting had buzzed into action. “What on earth do you think you are doing?” The girl froze.
“Oh crumbs,” she thought “I’m for the high jump now”
She turned her chair stood and faced Matron hoping that her body would conceal the screen. If Matron saw it there would be fireworks.
When Matron saw the girl she was surprised … this was not a girl she would expect to be awake at 3am!
“I errrr” she said stifled a yawn as best she could.
“I was just updating the Magazine Website Matron.” She answered.

She hoped Matron wouldn’t ask to see it. She wasn’t exactly sure how IT literate Matron was but she had answered honestly. She had updated the Magazine Website.. Just not the approved school version.

Suddenly a cackle erupted from the speakers…well not from the speakers but via the speakers from the Rossneath Peninsula in Scotland. Using the web cam with Rachel the Witch had obviously not been a good idea! Both Matron and the sinner jumped.
“What the…" exploded Matron.
“I errr...” She knew, of course she knew and she was going to kill Rachel the Witch but Matey had no need to know.
“Internet interference I think Matron, I’m not sure” She lied glibly through another yawn.

Matron moved towards the computer and eyed the screen with interest. She turned to the Magazine Prefect with a smile but Liss was asleep.

Matron read the articles with a grin on her face, grinned at RTW through the web cam window and deleted all evidence of the nights Internet access and carried Liss to bed.

The website appertaining to “The Chaletian Unplugged” remained a mystery to all but the select few.
