My Amazing Tags:
Grace watched with surprise as Elle took Kane away. The entire student body just stood there frozen watching them leave. Nevers were frozen with their arms still prepared to throw gruel. Evergirls had stopped mid sentence to witness the action. Everboys stood staring at the princess who dared to defy their leader.
“Woah,” Mina said once the prince and princess were inside, “I did not see that coming.”
“Me neither,” Grace replied, “Elle doesn’t seem like the type to be so bold. Although if someone were being mean to my friend, I wouldn’t stand for it either.”
“Who was that prince?” Wilhelmina asked.
“Kane. He and Elle were friends when they were young. Something got between them, but I wasn’t really paying attention to what it was,” Grace explained.
“Grace? Can I talk to you for a moment?” a voice asked. The girls looked up to see a nervous Neverboy.
“Luke!” Grace exclaimed, a smile spreading across her face, “Yeah, of course! Is everything alright?” She stood up.
“I-I’m not sure,” he eyed Mina suspiciously, “What’s up with her?” Mina, who was horking down her lunch, looked up mid bite.
“Oh sorry. I’d forgotten how good human food tastes,” she said, “I also seem to have forgotten table manners, if you couldn’t tell.”
“Believe me, I can tell,” Luke grimaced.
“She used to be a Wish Fish,” Grace explained.
“Um. Cool?” Luke looked around anxiously, “Can we go somewhere private?”
“Yeah, sure! Where do you want to go?” Luke led her to a tree out of hearing range.
“I think you’re in danger,” he said urgently.
“Wh-what?” Grace’s eyes flew open, “Why?!”
“My roommate said that that boy, Kane, will curse you. Grace, you need to stay away from him. He can’t be trusted!”
Grace’s fright turned to confusion. “Kane? You think Kane’s going to hurt me?”
“Mmhm. You and your friends.”
“But, Kane wouldn’t hurt anyone! He didn’t even hurt those bullies! Your roommate must be wrong!” Grace said. Anger coursed through her veins.
“My roommate is not wrong, Grace! He knows more about Kane than anyone else!”
Grace snorted, “Oh yeah? Then who is he?”
“His name is Victor, and he’s Elle’s cousin!”
Grace’s anger extinguished, replaced with surprise. “What?”
“Yeah! He said that Kane’s mother turned his dad into a swan, and that Kane is going to do the same thing to you!” Luke yelled.
“B-but, I thought that her cousin was Good.”
“Well, he’s not. Are you paying attention? Kane’s Evil like his mother! Victor said so himself!”
“I-I don’t believe him,” Grace replied shakily, “How do you know he’s not just using you, Luke?”
Luke looked at her with disbelief, “I can’t believe this! I’m trying to save you from an Evil villain, and you deny it and ask if I’m being used?”
“I’m just worried for you-”
“YOU’RE worried for ME?” Luke exclaimed, “There’s an Evil mastermind disguised as an Everbo-”
“No, Luke!” Grace said, slamming her foot down, her face bright red, “I refuse to believe you. Kane has given me no reason to doubt his goodness. Your roommate on the other hand lied to his family about which school he’s in, and seems to be putting lies in your head, too! I’m sorry Luke, but I’m going to go sit with my friend and eat my lunch! Come talk to me once you’ve got things figured out!”
Grace walks past Luke.
“Grace, wait!” Luke grabbed her arm, but she pulled away.
Grace didn’t have a chance to talk to Elle about what happened until the end of the day. Her friend had been pretty silent since she had emerged from her room after lunch.
“Hey, Elle?” Grace asked. Elle was sitting on her bed reading, Grace was sitting on the middle bed, and Mina was sitting on the bed to the left of the room admiring her hands (You never really appreciate fingers until you spend years with fins).
“Hm?” Elle replied, looking up. Her face had stopped bleeding, but there was a red, **** scar on the left side of her face.
“Luke talked to me at lunch, and um, I need to tell you something about your cousin,” Grace said cautiously.
“Huh? What does Victor have to do with Luke?” Elle put her book down, anxious to hear what Grace had to say.
“He’s, um, he’s in Evil.”
Ok, so I have to catch up with the story (you tagged me for chap 2 and I didn’t know which rp was it) But great!
