Inside this Book – THE NEXT MORNING DURING HIS FREE THIRD PERIOD, BEN SAT ON a wooden bench outside the office of the Dean of Students on the third floor of the Schoolhouse trying to get further through his Approaches reading. After Chapel that morning, Mr. Dennett, Hawley’s Head of House, had handed him a note asking him to come see the Dean, and so here Ben was, wondering if he had already done something wrong. Had Ahmed complained? The Dean of Students’ office was on the same third-floor hallway as College Admissions, the Athletic Director, and the Bursar, and the name of each department was painted on each door in dull gold outlined in black. The walls up here were bare of student posters, and the smell was different too: dripped coffee burned off a warming plate, toner from a big copy machine, the perfume of the women who ran the offices. Ben heard low voices from inside the Dean’s office but otherwise the floor seemed empty. Ben sat across from the open door of the Bursar, looking in at a front desk covered with paper and jars of pens and an electric typewriter. There was no one inside. Quietly from a little boombox on top of a file cabinet came the saxophone of a song that Ben thoroughly recognized but couldn’t have named, “Careless Whisper” by George Michael. He wondered whether the Dean, Mr. Phelps, was keeping him waiting out here on purpose. He looked again into the Bursar’s office with some tip-of- the-tongue feeling, as though the solution to his wait could be found on that desk.
Inside this book –The Expectations PDF Book by Alexander Tilney – CLASSES WENT BY IN WORRY, HOURS AND HOURS OF READING, soccer practices, Seated Meals in the High Dining Room and cafeteria lunches, and even though Ahmed seemed not to have let the Jell-O incident touch his serene enthusiasm, he didn’t eat Jell-O at the Dish anymore. Ahmed loved the rain. He loved the cool greenness. The pool construction was imminent: his father told him they were almost done with the plans. Rory told Ben about another captain’s practice, but for some reason Ben had no interest in playing. After seeing the boiler on its block every day when he came and went from Hawley, he wanted to do anything but play squash. In bed every night he would watch the glow-in-the-dark stars fade as he tried for sleep. But every morning he looked forward to Chapel. He hadn’t come any closer to believing in God, but he loved singing the sturdy inevitable hymns, he loved inhaling the five-story air, and he loved the light that erased the cames in the colored glass and traversed the room. The light found such traction in that air.
