7 weeks and 5 days until the Trial
“Ugh…” I blink. My arms are sooo sore. Who knew being a butterfly was so exhausting? I roll out of bed.
Morgan is tapping her foot, waiting. “Why did you take a twenty minute bath right before class started? We’re going to be late!” I brush my hair hurriedly, flinging water everywhere. “I just…felt like i needed to.” I know that doesn’t explain anything, but I’m not going to tell her where I went last night. Even I’m still disgusted. Morgan bounces on her toes, impatient. Her red hair flys into her mouth and she spits it out before continuing. “I got a letter from Kiko this morning!” I drop my hairbrush. “You did?” She nods excitedly. Kiko moved in with Morgan’s family after her third year was over as a housemaid. Over time, she became like a sister to Morgan, regaling her with tales of her brother and them giggling until the wee hours of the night. That’s what I’ve gotten so far from her breathless rant. Then, a wolf’s roar breaks up her words. She seizes me by the wrist and I wrench it away. Not that wrist. She looks at me, confused. “What was that about?” I offer my other one. “I was up late last night doing homework. That wrist hurts from opening so many pages.” I’m not sure she catches on. I feel so bad lying to her. Then, she shrugs and grabs my other one. “C’mon, sleepyhead. Let’s not be late.”
And thank you to @annemarie2009 for giving me the idea of including Kiko! She’s actually my favorite character other than Hester and the rest of the coven. Thank you! Just wanted to give credit where it’s due.
