Guess what I found in Geography yesterday?
Medina means “city of the prophet”
Too bad Elle’s dead
“LIVIA ANNETTE WARD!”
“WHAT HAPPENED TO JOSLYN?!?!”
“I don’t know, I found her like this.”
“I swear! Really!”
There was a pause.
“Are you a Raven?”
“ARE YOU A RAVEN!”
“Some people say I am.”
I heard a shout. Something breaking. A shriek. Metal scraping against metal. And then there was light.
“Livia?” I asked.
“Who’s that?” I pointed my shaking finger at the second body lying on the wooden floor.
“Alia Woodson. No time for questions. We have to get you out of here.”
She grabbed my hand and started running down a dark hallway, I heard running feet behind us.
“Is she dead?”
“I said. No. Time. For. Questions.”
“Ok, can you tell me why you killed Lacy?”
“’Cause she knows things.” Janna said.
“But you didn’t kill me yet.”
“Yeah, we’re getting to that.” I could see Cal roll her eyes in the mirror, that can’t be safe to do while you're driving.
“Where are you taking me?”
“Could you stop asking questions? That’s what got your little friend Ellyana killed.”
“Wait, you’re the one who killed Elle?” Janna asked.
“I thought someone told you.”
“YOU! You killed her.”
“I mean, it was her or me.”
“You killed Elle! You killed her!”
She sounded like she was bored.
Things I wanted to do right then (but couldn’t because I was tied up in a car)
At least push her out of the car
Turn the car around
Use the pocketknife lying just out of reach to gouge out Cal’s eyes (actually, that would be a bit too violent)
Kill Janna because she was giggling
Find Elle’s body and cry
“You weren’t two seconds ago.”
“Yeah I was.”
Maybe I wasn’t...
I hate having to listen to orders from Cal.
But I got Arianna (without killing her, or her killing me despite the struggle she put up) and dragged her into the clearing.
“Are you finally going to tell me where we are?”
“FAO headquarters is a clearing in the middle of the woods?”
“No dummy, it’s underneath a clearing in the middle of the woods. Janna, blindfold her.”
“Excuse me? Are you missing something?”
“Janna. Please blindfold our guest.”
Josh (yes, this is the first time we’ve used his perspective)
I was panicking.
I had texted Cassia 27 times in the last four hours.
She hadn't texted back.
Amy was lying on the floor of the cabin.
Amy could be dying.
Amy had a wand.
Mrs. Whitaker and Elle's bodies were still lying in the bedroom.
I had to do something.
But I couldn’t leave Amy alone, could I?
You would think the chosen one would be a faster runner.
We slid into a secret passage and hopped into a car. (benefit of living at Shadow Creek: cars aren’t locked because you don’t need keys to drive them)
I think this car was Marion’s, not sure though.
“Um, buckle your seatbelt. We don’t want to die now.”
The chosen one can also be kind of annoying.
I kicked at the gas and we were off, driving as fast as was relatively safe. At the rate we were going, and if we didn’t get caught or crash or run into anything, we should make it in time.
ok, on to the questions! (does anyone other than Briana actually answer these?)
how do you get into FAO headquarters?
Does Josh actually leave Amy alone?
Is Amy dead?
Where is Livia taking Cassia?
Why is Livia taking Cassia wherever she's taking her?
