My Ranking Points
The Elemental Rebellion
I don’t love Evie. I don’t.
But as I stare over to where she stands on the other side of the courtyard, it occurs to me that it would be so easy to love her again. That’s the problem. It’s far too easy.
That’s why I need to focus on Theo instead.
So beautiful. The way her brown hair catches the light –
I’m biased. Anya is plain, with dull brown hair, and eyes of exactly the same colour. If I wanted beauty, there are thousands of other options.
But none quite like Anya. If only she would get away from that Evie girl and come to me instead.
I walk over to her, and I know that I am probably as red as a strawberry.
“Hi Theo,” she says.
“Hi… um, Anya. So I was wondering…” Beetroot.
She smiles. “Yes?”
I say it all in a rush. “Wouldyouliketocometosupperwithmetoday?” Plum.
She grins, and I know I’ve said the right thing. “Okay.”
But I notice that she turns to Evelyn as soon as she says that.
She’s still in love with Evie. It’s so blindingly obvious that even a child could see. And as Evie walks into the castle, there is a spark of pain through her eyes.
Too bad Evie will never forgive her.
Too bad I will never forgive her.
Too bad all she has is Theo.
I hate him too. Smarmy loser.
The only person I like here is Lyn, but I feel like she has no time for me. So it’s up to me to make new friends.
Such a juvenile thing to do.
Those were my dad’s last words to me. Maybe if we’d had more time, something would have been worked out –
Sure. And pigs would fly.
Lizzy never understood it when I said that. She would always ask “Can I see the flying pig?”
Evan was the one who first told me that he had broken up with his girlfriend.
Eddie told me that he was getting married.
That was the day before he died.
Evie was my sister. She was the one who took the blame for things that I did, and took the punishment too. She was the one who hugged me when I fell over and scraped my knee, who fell in love with her servant, who never wanted to learn the rules of the Water court
I wonder if Lizzy would have ever learnt to use idioms.
I wonder if Evan would have found someone that he loved.
I wonder if Eddie and his fiancee would have been married, and had thirteen lovely noble-born children, and would never have to worry about Phoebe Matthews, or Theo Turner, or Anya Carpenter.
I wonder if Evie will ever become that person again.
I hope you liked this one, even though it was super sad. Sorry that it was so sad. I will be going back to Lyn and Fee later, and yeah… hoped you liked it. Sorry it took so long to post though, hopefully the next chapter will be posted in the next week. Comment if you want to be tagged, if you want to give any suggestions, if you have any constuctive criticism, or just if you want to comment.
this was a great chapter, very deep and sad, but I still loved it!!!! I’m also very sorry that I’ve been dead for the past 2 months. I read over all your past chapters though and they’re great. Keep it up!!
Thank you, that’s so sweet. Keep writing, I can’t wait to read your next chapter!!
