Corrie looked at Dawn, surprised by her statement. “You think they know more than they’re saying?”

“Who?” asked Edie. “The administration?”

“Yeah, whoever sent the email.” Dawn pointed to it. “The Office of Communications. Or the administration as a whole, probably. These people are just the ones who send emails. Maybe it’s even the guards who are hiding something.”

Corrie checked her phone and was surprised to find that it was almost ten; time had passed quickly while she hung out with her friends.
