Edie looked back at Professor Rook, confused. Was he implying that they had messed up the trap somehow? She couldn’t have done so—neither could Corrie. They’d both been far away when the professors had trapped Gerlina.
She realized that she might have distracted them. Maybe they’d hesitated when she’d run out into the center green because she was getting in their way. Her magic was like a faerie’s—she might not have been able to move through the lines of their net the way Troy and Link had, so they could have been worried about trapping her by accident.
“Sorry if I got in your way,” she said, hoping she sounded genuinely remorseful. “I saw that girl and freaked out. I didn’t want her to get caught in the middle.”
“You did the right thing, Edie,” Ginny said.
