My Ranking Points
“Hello, Lady.” Lea said sarcastically with a glint in her eyes. The handsome boy- Circo, I think- stared at her for a moment with disbelief before regaining his cool posture.
“Nice to see you too, Princess.” He sat up and ran his fingers through his blonde hair to smooth it down. So… what are we going to do?”
I could tell Lea was already getting angry that he didn’t get her sarcasm, but now he was acting like he belonged here. Lea exploded.
“Not ‘we’,” Lea gritted through her teeth. “You are ‘not’ coming with us!”
Circo looked around at us and shrugged. “It sure seems like it.”
Lea gasped, and Angelique interrupted. “Youn know when I blasted you with magic before? I’ll do it again if you don’t show her some respect.”
It was his turn to be flabbergasted. “W-what? I am being respectful… I’m not even *****!”
Lea glared at him and he stopped talking. I turned toward him and threw him an extra sandwich. He caught just in time before it fell into the fire. Lea sighed and poured him a cup of water from our waterskin. Circo’s grin grew larger.
“Hey, I knew you liked me!” He said in between bites. Lea flushed and turned away. Angelique sighed. No one said anything for quite a while. The fire crackled in front of us and the owls hooted from the trees. Lea took small bites from her sandwich and Angelique did the same. However, I was much too distracted to eat and broke the silence.
“So, Lea, Angelique, as I was saying before, tomorrow we’ll reach the next town and there we’ll restock on supplies. We’ll spend the night in a inn, an the following day we’ll set out. Then, we follow the river until we get back to Amber Sile. From there, we’ll track down Cecelia.”
My mouth burned with disgust as I said the name of the murderer. We’ll find her and make her pay for what she did to Amanda. We will.
“Hey, can I come along with you guys-” Circo started excitedly, but Lea interrupted him by splashing her water onto his face. The three of us bursted into laughter and Circo soon joined in.
