I glared at Wes from the floor. Kell had unceremoniously dumped me onto the carpet before Risha dragged Wes into the room. As the key clicked inside the look, Wes rapped on the door. "I've been a bad boy, so now I have to go to your room."

I rubbed my temples, wondering when this splitting headache would end. Probably when I finally knew what was going on. "No, you've been a bad boy so now you're in MY room."
