Chapter 7: Secrets Revealed – I hope you like it! 🙂
Laurence couldn’t have been more enraged as he glared witheringly at the trembling Julie.
“I came out here, because of YOU?!” Laurence could barely restrain from throttling her. Julie whimpered loudly, making Laurence even more disgusted.
In his temper, the faculty had come out, despite his frantic attempts to keep them away. Here they were now, piercing Laurence icily with stony faces.
“On their first night too!” Professor Manley snarled, glaring at the five quaking Evers.
Professor Dovey took charge, addressing a few cool words to the students then sending them back into the towers. She then turned away and proceeded to go leave, then hesitantly looked back.
“Laurence, I’d like a word. My study now.” Laurence gawked at her, appalled.
How did Professor Dovey know he led the others out? Why did she not pick on Julie? Laurence felt heated outrage just by thinking of Julie. The sky started pelting the group with hailstones, and wind whipped recklessly around their shoulders. Julie was a bright purple, teeth chattering and body trembling frenziedly.
“Now! Hurry up!” Yuba scalded the Ever’s ears so they were burning when they reached the towers. Laurence’s insides felt numb with the bitter cold. He trudged dismally to Dovey’s office, and dropped wearily on the candy floor. Mason, Aron and Cheshire gave Laurence reasurring looks, and Julie brushed his hand. Laurence slapped it away, leaving a blazing red streak on Julie’s hand as she left. He faced Professor Dovey, face hostile and tongue ready for an argument.
“Laurence,” She sighed. “It is a dreadful disgrace to be found out of bed on your first night.” Laurence shifted restlessly.
“I usually give a punishment, but I shall let you leave with a sharp tongue lashing. As it happens, I know why this storm was provoked. One person called it.”
Laurence listened closely, hoping to hear a Nevers name or perhaps Julie’s.
Laurence was speechless. Dumbfounded. Astounded.
“I’m sorry?” Professor Dovey nodded, her gaze unblinking. “I expect you are wondering why!”
She mused in silence for a while and Laurence coughed in case she had forgotten he was there. Dovey veered back to the authentic world in a flash.
“You have a unique, but incredible talent. I expect you knew?” Laurence stayed befuddled.
“Weather control. You control the weather with your emotions. You were bored, and wanted something to be excited about, so you created the storm.”
WHAT? Laurence was nonplussed getting more confused by the second, and even worse, his head was searing and throbbing. Laurence felt faint, and the room grew hazy in front of his eyes. Blinking rapidly, to stop himself from fainting, he focused on Professor Dovey’s round glasses.
Professor Dovey saw his concentrated expression and glassy eyes. She frowned.
“Best go to sleep now. Close the door behind you.”
Where was the sharp tongue lashing?
Laurence stumbled out of the room, slamming the door, head bursting. His eyesight was blurry and a severe pain stung everywhere. As soon as he walked into Room 12, a gentle snoring soothed his stinging ears. A wave of guilt washed over Laurence for waking up such calm boys.
He promised to Never lose control of his talent, Ever again…
But how easily could he keep that promise?
I hope you enjoyed! 🙂 If you were interested, you could read the other parts @peppy 🙂
Thanks for reading! If you would like me too include you in my story, please comment your bio 🙂
I just read your other chapters. Incredible! You are one of the people here that I genuinely wait to hear more from. 🙂 🙂 Just as a thought for next time: your writing is brilliant and the vocabulary is amazing, but sometimes you overuse your wide range of words. Overusing may be better than underusing, but it is still essential to vary between complicated and easy words. Trust me, I know. Sometimes, people write with complicated words as their own style, so I’m sorry if that’s the case. I know it’s very tempting, when you know so many words, to use them very often, but sometimes you just need to rein it in a bit. Personally, I think that if you polished your work and limited your use of “complicated” words, you could become a great writer. Please don’t take my criticism as a setback and please don’t go UNDERUSING now I’ve said this! To be honest, the “overusing” problem is actually very small, you somehow make it work quite well anyway, it was just a little thing I noticed. Looking forward to more! 🙂
If you need another Ever or a Never you can find 2 bio’s @EllaEnchanted 🙂
@arian2? I will try to ‘rein down’ at little 🙂
Thank you for pointing that out 🙂
I liked it 🙂 peppy if you use complicated words its fine. It will make your readers look at the dictionary and learn more and new words that they can use for other conditions if needed.
