My Ranking Points
I am so nervous. I am somehow in rank number nine and I do not feel ready. And worse, I will be facing Peter and James and all those other girls I sort of knew. I am laying in bed and breathing hard. But today was the day. My secret project is done and I will have a little peace for about thirty minutes. I smile. Holding my piano charm I look at my watch, I cannot wait for lunch.
Classes went by as usual. Lady Lesso taught me a few curses that could really help me defend myself. I also have been practicing sword fighting since I decided it will probably be handy. But there is one person who keeps on looking at the school for good like a maniac. I do not understand why he is so intrigued by the school for good. But, I ignore it. I cannot deal with that right now since it is Trail Eve.
Lunch comes around and I eat as quickly as I can. I run over to a hedge and crawl through a crack in it. I come to my “secret garden.” I smile. Going to the middle of it I place my charm down. I focus on my fear of the trail and my figure glows.
Touching the piano I say, “Arias Mulcule!”
The piano slowly grows larger and larger and larger. I walk over to corner of my garden and grab the chair I hid. Bringing it over to the piano I place it down. I sit down and let my finger touch the keys. Pressing one down it makes a noise. I smile brightly. It works!
I warm up, my figures dancing gracefully on keys. Then I start playing a song I know by heart. Closing my eyes my hands do all the work. I only get one key wrong, but I do not care. Opening my eyes I do the ending.
“I didn’t know you could play,” someone said. I jump and scoot around.
“Peter?” I am confused, not that long ago this boy would not even look at me.
“I heard music and decided to try and find where it is coming from,” Peter said. I stare down at the ground a little. Nobody has ever heard me play besides my mother.
“You’re really good,” He adds.
He looks at me, then the piano, “Can I join you?” He asks.
“Umm…” I do not know what to say, but this could help my relationship with him and the trail, “Umm… Sure?” I scoot over on my chair. Peter sits next to me. He then starts playing something. Oddly enough, I know it too. I start playing along with him and we create a beautiful melody. We play faster and faster until Peter stops, his hands not wanting to go any longer at that speed. I laugh. He laughs too. I start the ending slowly in case he wants to join me again. He does. We end. I do my special thing I added.
Then Peter just bangs on the keys. I laugh and **** on the keys too. He laughs and we both stop, catching our breath from laughing so hard.
I look at my watch. No! Time is almost up! I decide to “pack up” when Peter plays one more thing. I look and his hands do not even look like they are touching the keys. When he is done I touch the keys in person last time and do a trill.
I get a kiss on the cheek. I smile and lean my head on his shoulder.
Then I get up quickly and start “packing up.”
Also, @nadea, could Peony save Sienna from something? I already have it planned out but I wanted to make sure you are okay with it.
Oh, and VERY good job!! I really like it because Sienna also plays piano. (And because I play piano & love it so much!)
Just saying… it’s the TRIAL by Tale, not the TRAIL by Tale. Just saying. Also, tense changes again, and you had a couple of dangling participles, and remember that “he said” is usually not capitalized. I think that’s all.
Good job on the story and heightening the Peter-Peony romance!
@nadea, this is what I was thinking: Someone (probably a boy) would sneak up on Sienna with sword(maybe) or about to do a spell and Peony stops him. Or something like that
Um… I’m not sure about the “Saving Sienna” plot point. Why would an Everboy want to kill Sienna? (Neverboys don’t have swords). It could be James, I guess.
Oh, if this is trying to prove to Sienna that Peony wasn’t trying to hurt Lol with the pirates, I get that. But better mae it neverboy with Wish Fish or spells or something.
And you can let Peony save Sienna, Sienna and Peony pull out the guy’s flag and drop it, and Peony runs off again? That seems ethical because Peony would be unsure how Sienna would act…
Anyway, yeah that’s possible. Good idea!!
Yeah, I guess that is probable. It’s not me to decide, really it is @nadea but I think that maybe it shouldn’t be a sword? Or maybe like make up some guy that really hates him, like ooh! Gaston’s son?
@nadea, that does work. 🙂 ya. I guess it could happen like that
