7 weeks and 5 days until the Trial
Dean Sophie’s POV
“Alcina, Alcina.” Everyone made such a fuss about her, and yet I see nothing worth making a fuss about. She was the first student to go missing, so she missed the welcoming. And my dazzling entrance, I think. One of the Neverboys has been talking about her lately. His hair is messy and not platinum blond, but white. Just like Rafal. His eyes are bloodred, however. Not like Rafal. His ranks aren’t good, so I don’t know his name but, he sure bears a striking resemblance to a certain School Master.
I yawn again. Professor Anemone shoots me a ***** look then continues with her lesson. “Remember girls, just becausd there’s a deadly Trial in two months doesn’t mean you can’t look presentable!” I groan and glance over at Jayde. She’s fixing her lipstick in a pocket mirror, not paying the slightest attention to the lesson. Her lips are moving eyer so slightly. We’re supposed to be working on ‘accessory matching’ which I don’t really think is a suitable lesson for today. However, the professor approves of my match and says I can go read Winning Your Prince since I finished first. A golden 1 shimmers over my forehead, then vanishes. I have Animal Communication next. Did I do my homework? I stifle a yawn and open the book. Whoever knew being a butterfly was so tiring. Suddenly, the rock candy door crashes to the ground. It’s a hooded beast, grunting and roaring, drool dripping to the ground. Evergirls scream and dodge behind desks. That sounds familiar….the panting. It pulls out a bow. No…no no no no!! My fingerglow blares to life, lavender light blinding everyone. Professor Anemone conjures a silver lovebird and tells it “Fetch Clarissa!” before facing the beast from my nightmares. Then, it vanishes, bow clinking to the ground. Black smoke billows up. The third message in less than twelve hours.
Dean Sophie makes an entrance! I said at the beginning that I would ignore books 4-6 because I started this before I’d read them, so yeah. Sophie is Dean, Hort is History Professor, but we might get some SophiexHort. Maybe. 😉 Hope you enjoyed!
