Lizzie's Diary - Entry 35
Marilyn took Lizzie’s hand and smiled pleasantly her way, urging her to follow the crowd of spirits downstairs. Dane and Fletcher were leading the procession, followed closely by Monty and his subordinates, who were all very silent considering the circumstances. Marilyn, Lizzie, Gabby, and the rest of the tribe followed.

26 of March, 2021 - 2:03 AM CARI If there was one thing that I knew how to do well, it was how to disappear. I was skilled in casting glamour, and I always triple-checked my phone’s ringtone before stepping out, ensuring that there was no chance that I would make a sound. A couple of years back, I taught myself how to charm objects, inadvertently turning an old necklace Mami had gifted me into a ward against spell trackers. Val had bought me my first broomstick when I was four, and she and Nanny made sure I knew how to ride like an expert. On top of all that, living with Nanny and his family’s affinity for security magick prompted me to learn to find weaknesses in his spellwork. It took years of trial and error, but eventually, I figured out that Nanny’s other affinity, fire, was a major factor in his spellcasting. Once I had realized that, it was only another week of research before I felt confident enough to create my own water-centered counter-spell: and it started with a denim jacket I bought from a local thrift store.
Scarlett Moon - Chapter 7
Monday, 6/ 6 / 2135 Scarlett spent so much of her free time at Noah’s that when the healer joked about her moving into the guest house with him, she took him up on his suggestion and moved the very next day. While the older members of the court weren’t so shocked, there was one youngster in particular who wanted to join them--and the morning following her sudden move, Scarlett was dressing for her supply run when she heard a frenzied knock at her door.

I’m here again. I looked around, taking in the familiar surroundings. At first, all I could see was the same empty void as in my previous dream. The same window appeared before me, and the usual scene played out. Rocío and I were fast asleep in our bed; I even saw my chest rise and fall in time with my own even breaths.

Three Minutes After The Bell AXEL “So,” Val began, her tone light. “Is there anything I should know about?” I shrugged my shoulders and remained silent, hoping to feign ignorance. Please don’t invoke the oath, please don’t invoke the oath--
Lizzie's Diary - Entry 34
Five out of the six teens that were in the room jumped up from their seats around the area rug and rushed to the door, pulling Lizzie into a bear hug. Their auras were all bright and optimistic, though they were all overtaken by light green as soon as they saw the human.
Scarlett Moon - Chapter 6
The following eighteen months were simultaneously uneventful and stressful. The day after their heart-to-heart, Noah added Scarlett to the chore list as a floater. The newcomer helped most often with farm and cleaning duty, though she didn’t mind laundry duty. Joining the court on these tasks not only proved to the angels that she could contribute well with minimal supervision, but get along with her peers.
Scarlett Moon - Chapter 5
“So?” Scarlett frowned, not bothering to peek up from her magazine. “So, what?” Following their discussion in the closet, Noah and Scarlett had continued hanging up his clothing until the walk-in was full of everything he owned. Wellington had done the honors of teleporting the healer’s dresser over with folded clothes and all, so there was nothing the teens needed to do in that regard. Noah had spent the entire time talking, regaling Scarlett with stories from his time growing up in the Jackson colony. She learned a lot about the Zeroua Court’s conception: particularly how Alice pressured him, Aria, and Gin into exploring beyond their borders and almost immediately got them killed, resulting in her recognition as their princess.

26 of March, 2021 - Mid-Night Meal CARI We all grabbed our lunch and settled at our usual table; while Lilly and Helena normally sat with other freshmen, they joined me and my friends for this meal. Jett was already seated by the time we got there, and Max, Diego, and Oreste joined us shortly after.
Lizzie's Diary - Entry 33
17th day of December in the year 2140 The Council of Elders took less than a day to approve my and Matteo’s proposal. Monty isn’t happy that we seem eager to kill bandits, but he just doesn’t get it. I’ve seen firsthand the greed and cruelty of our kind. We act like we’re high and mighty, without weaknesses, but that isn’t true. We hurt and bleed and die just like any colonist, and I’ll kill as many bandits as I need to stop them from destroying another colony.
