Chapter 13: Good or Evil?
Lunch took place in the Clearing, a cordial picnic meadow with daisies dotting velvety, emerald grass just by the gates of the Blue Forest. Cheshire dragged Laurence through the channel of trees, branches entwined round each other. Tripping constantly, Laurence’s chest tightened as the channel grew dangerously narrow – then the channel flung him out by a hollowed trunk onto a patch of rich green grass. Cheshire yanked him to the front of the Good line and shoved past the other Evers. A nymph in a burgundy hood handed him a picnic basket from which a mouth-watering scent drifted out through a warm cloth. Cheshire lugged Laurence to a lofty bay tree and slung him by the waist behind it. What a large company! Mason, Aron, Dora, Lana, Aali and Julie gathered around the vast expanse of trunk, shaded by the trees sweeping boughs. Laurence dropped down on a stump covered by a sea of moss and flung of the silver cloth where a couscous with Camembert Cheese, spiced potato wedges, a honey-glazed lamb sandwich, crusty loaves with a raspberry spread and a glass of sparkling strawberry elderflower awaited him. Heaven. Laurence peered at the Nevers picking at gruel and pigs feet from decayed pails, and he frowned as blood spurted out of a wolfish-looking Neverboy’s mouth.
Ignoring the Nevers making rude faces across the Clearing, Laurence sipped his elderflower and let the strawberry tang wash round his mouth. A hand snatched it away.
“Later, Laurence how did you get that eye?” Aali looked eagerly at him. Laurence inhaled. Best to get it done and over with. So he saluted to his audience and capered about acting out the Study Scene. He acted out every detail, embellishing it a little, and when he got to the part where Ella punched his eye, he grasped it as though it were a Symbol of Virtue to an enraptured crowd of admiring Evers. Even some Nevers peeked out from oak trees to gawk at the crowd and stare at the scene Laurence was making. After the mob had died down, he surveyed the crowd for Jake and Ella. Now he really wondered what their reaction would be. Would they be sorry? Would they want to make amends and be friends? Or were they bitter and full of resentment? Laurence viewed the students. Ella and Jake were not with them. Laurence felt a twinge of disappointment as he saw them on the other side of the Clearing, totally neglecting his performance and muttering darkly to each other. In that second, they both twisted their heads upright, caught Laurence staring and Ella shot him a sour black look. Jake stared right back, but his stare was what could be described as somewhat ‘icy,’ thought Laurence, since he makes me shiver whenever I’m around him.
Laurence turned to Cheshire to appeal, but his friend was goggling a sign fastened to the Ever’s ranking board.
“Oh no.” A look of horror flashed in Cheshire’s eyes. The sign read:
Top 3 Evers: Report of Professor Dovey’s office now.
Now, now, now, now, NOW! Laurence felt dizzy.
The top three Evers were Laurence, Cheshire, and. . . Ella.
“Ella’s so mysterious,” Julie, Lana and Dora were piling heaps of information about Ella for Laurence.
“She’s always wearing a hood.” Lana bit her lip thoughtfully. “And always seems to hate everyone. Poor thing. But she wants NO sympathy whatsoever.”
Aron glanced fearfully at Jake. “And Jake is the only person who she actually speaks to.” Laurence was ******** with gratitude. This is what Good’s for, he thought. We fight for each other, and we don’t let our friends down. That was Good, right? Ella didn’t seem to fit any of those qualities. Laurence stifled a yell as despair jabbed at his neck, and dread washed over him.
Was Ella Good or Evil?
Hope you liked it!

Ella has always had a rough life and the only way she can get through tough times is through violence and stuff. Her parents divorced when she was 7, her dad is ***** 24’7 and she was bullied in Camelot for her elf ears.
