A prank for the new teacher - Excerpt from the novel La Maga A Story about Sorcerers and Magi

Illustrated novel Leonard and his buddies set up a prank for the new teacher

Pass and photo ID. You can’t get into the class without an admission pass and photo ID: student ID, license to practice magic, magical association card. Did you not receive the notice?” the hall guard croaked. And she was frog-like—bloated with a thick, jowly face and bloody, popping eyes.
No one ever gave me a hard time about being a walk-in,” the man protested. “I promised my son that I’d take the class with him.”
“This is a closed class,” the hall guard snapped, firmly affirming in her gravelly voice: “You cannot be admitted without an admission pass and a photo ID!”
“Where do I get a pass?” the man asked.
“You don’t! The class is filled,” the froggy character said.
The man stormed away. The hall guard continued barking at students and adults about the entrance requirements as they congregated at the threshold of a small lecture hall. There, a controversial celebrity lady mage would be presenting a class called Lost and Found: Mystical Codes and Keys.
Leonard and his buddies, Anil and Bertrand, presented the appropriate documents and were admitted. Leonard’s father, Lord Consul Leo de Lux, followed them. He was one of the top rulers of the North Atlantic Sovereignty.

“Pass and ID. No one is admitted without an admission pass and photo ID,” the hall guard rattled. Upon realizing who she was now talking to, though, she froze. “You can go in,” she rasped.
Leonard de Lux Junior made quick work of setting up a prank for the new teacher while his father chatted with some people from the Royal Conservationist Party. He figured he’d get away with it and that his dad, who had been on the rag about this particular teacher, would get a mean laugh from the escapade.
With sleight of hand, Leonard dropped a stink-bomb , disguised as a lace sachet, on the professor’s chair. When she sat at the desk to study the seating chart and call the roll, she would, you know, make a smell.  Leonard twitched his eyebrows and sneered at his buddies. They all sniggered and sputtered so that their pimply, adolescent faces turned reddish and even gawkier.
