My Ranking Points
Hello fellow Evers and Nevers! My next chapter is up and I will try to post a new one later today!
Chapter 7: The endless woods and princess Uma 🙂
I ran. Not because I was sad but because I was embarrassed and if I had stayed a second longer I would be DEAD. I tripped on rocks and scraped myself on bushes and banged into trees but I didn’t stop running. I needed some alone time. Pronto. I ran deep into the endless woods and finally, stopped. Panting I sat down next to a tree. I had cuts from thorns and tree branches all over me, I probably had a few bruises too. I sat there thinking for forever. I felt a single tear slip down my cheek. My friends probably thought I was a savage, a never, a *****. I was alone. Night was falling so I got up and started heading back to the school. Luckily I didn’t get caught by any teachers. When I got to my dorm I was surprised to find Julie out of bed. “Whatever” I thought. I hoped into bed fearing what would happen tomorrow, then I fell asleep. I awoke to the sound of singing. Crystal was in the bathroom. She came out looked at me and left. Jane and Julie had already left. I walked into the bathroom and had a quick rinse, I cleaned of my wounds and braided my hair to the side. I put on some brown jeans, a top and hiking boots. I didn’t want anyone to notice me (even though they will notice me no matter what) so I put on one of my cloaks and wire the hood up. I spotted a schedule on my bed and picked it up. Great. My first class was Animal Communication taught by princess Uma. I walked into the class and made sure to get a seat as close to the back as possible. Thank god Elizabeth wasn’t in my class! But at least one of her friends was in my class. Princess Uma strolled into the classroom with a big smile on her face, she was followed by 3 animals, a dove, a rabbit and woodpecker.
“Who wants to go first?” She said. Everyone’s hand shot up into the sky like a rocket. All except mine. I got to go last. When it was my turn I walked up to the front of the class as slowly as I could, princess Uma asked me to take my hood off, I hesitated but took it off anyways. I could here girls whispers, “She punched Liz in the nose” “that girl is a Never” “she shouldn’t be here” “freak” they whispered. “Would you like to introduce yourself to this woodpecker?” Princess Uma asked me. “Ok.” I gulped, how was supposed to communicate with a woodpecker?! I eat birds!
“Hi. My name is Ella, I’m from Camelot.” The bird chirped back, he asked me about Camelot, apparently his name was Robin. “Camelot is… Nice. There are woods nearby that are full of animals like you.” Next the bird asked me what my favourite food was, I was surprised I understood animal. “Ummm… Birds.” Robin then had a rant on why I shouldn’t eat birds and if I want to be a princess them I would have to become a vegetarian. “Meat is the most common food in Camelot and birds are especially popular so it’s either starve or eat my favourite foods.” I snapped. The bird was furious and I was too, we fought but only with words up until the bird started pecking at my head, Princess Uma grabbed the bird of me and told him to settle down. Our rankings poped over our heads, surprisingly I managed to score a six. “Class dismissed.” Princess Uma said “Except you Ella.” Ugh, now I’m in trouble.
“You’re probably wondering how you scored a six.” She said.
“This is Animal communication class were young Princesses talk to animals, you may have had a not so pleasant conversation with Robin but you still had a conversation and you understood every word he said. That is how you got your six, but I am wondering where you got all of those cuts.” I didn’t quite know how to respond to this but I did without getting punished. “I, um may have ran into the endless woods yesterday.”
“Oh.” Was her response. “Ok. You can go now, don’t want to be late.” And with that I was off.

LOVE your writing @ellaenchanted! 🙂
Ella and Jake are in my story, for the past 3 chapters so far, and I would be grateful if you could read it. 🙂
Thank you! Your writing is fantastic. 🙂
Ditto. Except I’m half Korean. Technicalities! 😉
Also, Jake is going to play a much, much bigger role in my story now and I’ve got some incredible twists planned! I’d really like it if you could have a read (@arian2). Great story! 🙂
