My Ranking Points
Sorry this came so late in the day! Thanks for the positive feedback on my last chapters 😀 Go to my favourites to read them, I promise it will be worth it. This will have spoilers from the original SGE series fyi. Constructive criticism is welcome and ask to be tagged if you want to find out what happens. Hope you enjoy! Tell me what you think is gonna happen after this! I’m curious about what y’all think.
Jenna stood up, laughing, the smile on her face brighter and kinder than ever. Taylor must have hallucinated it. First her chest glowed, then one of her first friends looked like the devil! What could that mean? She must have been going crazy! Jenna walked up to her and held out her hand. Taylor shook it. “Nice one.” Jenna yelled over the crazy crowd.
“Right. We still have a lot of work to do!” Espada shouted. “The loser plays the next person!”
Jenna groaned and moved to pick her sword, Taylor laughed and joined the class, trying to push away her previous thoughts. She felt hot and dizzy but she wasn’t sure if it was the fight, fright or the blast of heat from a while ago that was making her feel so sick. Her vision blurred and she stumbled forward as the next pair began to battle. Her head spun and her stomach flipped, her hands began to sweat. She fell into someone’s arms, she couldn’t tell who. She barely heard the people cry out to her, but she heard the warm voice of Hale of Neverland. As darkness clouded her eyes forcing here lids to close, she heard Hale’s voice.
“Taylor!” He cried, his voice sounded like it was fading away from her weakening body. “Taylor…” Then everything went dark.
“I swear! We have no reason to lie to you!” Ethan told Gryffin.
“Shhhh!” Gryffin hushed.
“I swear, we were in the middle of Phys Ed and we felt a rush of light and heat. Then we started glowing!”
“Shut up!” Gryffin said, pushing him away.
“Please believe me! We need someone’s help. If it happened to all three of us, maybe it happened to more people.” Ethan begged.
“Ethan.” Professor Lukas said in a cross tone. Lukas arched his eyebrow at him and Ethan shrank back as the class turned to look at him. Gryffin took a step away. Ethan sulked.
How did the rumors get to the teachers? He wondered, blocking out Lukas’ voice which was going over “the perfect bow” Why does everyone here ****? He continued to ask himself. He felt alone without Rian, he felt defenseless without Rian. He was Ethan’s rock and the only way he could live through this school. Only the first day and Ethan already couldn’t survive without him. He had hoped the evers would have changed after the Sophie and Agatha thing. He thought people would read it and evers would stop being jerks! But maybe they aren’t jerks…maybe they’re just not used to it. People are afraid of what they’re not used to.
Even if Ethan knew that was know excuse for the way he was treated, it made him feel better. It made him hope that things would change. If only I had the courage to tell everyone though. I don’t know why I can’t. I don’t know what’s holding me back. WHY CAN’T I JUST TELL EVERYONE THE TRUTH?! He yelled to himself.
“You ok?” Gryffin mumbled to him.
Ethan realized his fists were clenched so hard that his palms were bleeding. He looked at the floor.
“Ya…” He murmured. But he wasn’t ok at all.
“I don’t have a special talent!” Viktor exclaimed to Professor Sheeks.
“Me neither…” Nicola said.
“I don’t know any magic!” Viktor said.
Sheeba Sheeks rubbed her temples, wondering how he had gotten into the school in the first place.
“Look. I am not going through another year of stress because nevers are useless and have no talent. So just do something remotely close to magic!” Sheeks exclaimed to the pair.
The professor conjured an apple out of thin air. “Do anything to this.” she said, placing the apple in front of Nicola.
“I can’t.” Nicola said.
“Just try!” Sheeks said, rolling her eyes.
“I’m a reader!”
“I’m a teacher!”
“I didn’t even want to come here, my friend signed me up for this school!”
“You’re still here though.”
“Ok! But I don’t. Know. Magic!”
“Just do it!”
Suddenly, Nicola began to cough violently. Her throat was all of a sudden scratchy and hot. She coughed and Sheeks waved her away, Viktor began to slap her on the back. As Nicola gave a final cough, she hacked up a dark purple liquid onto the floor. It glowed for a second, then disappeared into the cracks of the stone floor. She wiped the substance from her mouth, eyes wide. Viktor gaped.
Nicola cried out as her eyes glowed the same colour, shooting a blast of pain through her body. The liquid filled her throat again and she coughed out more dark purple goo. Pain filled her mouth as her teeth grew into fangs, ripping through her pink gums. Purple substance dripped from her sharpened teeth, eyes still glowing. She snarled at her teacher.
The class gawked, unable to say anything. Professor Sheeks was smiling from ear to ear, rotting teeth fully exposed.
“Anger magic!” She exclaimed like a bubbly little girl. She clapped her hands excitedly. “The best kind of magic for a never!” She bustled over to Nicola whose pupils were now ***** and the whites of her eyes now all purple. New claws for nails picked at her pointed teeth angrily as horns emerged from her head.
“My dear that is amazing! Your anger brought out a monster form.”
Nicola looked at herself in horror, fangs and nails shrinking back into her body. Her eyes cleared and she wiped the last bits of purple off her teeth. She breathed fast and hard, she couldn’t understand.
Sheeks was practically jumping up and down with joy. She squealed with joy again as a giant “1” exploded over Nicola’s head.
“But how…how did I do that?” Nicola asked.
“I’ve never done anything like that! I’ve never done magic!”
“You can do it because you are a special girl.” Professor Sheeks said, still smiling wildly at Nicola.
“I knew you would be great…it was…” The teacher’s voice trailed off.
“It was what?” Nicola inquired.
Sheeba Sheeks shuffled her feet, knowing she had said too much already.
“It doesn’t matter…well done Nicola.” The teacher said, waving her off.
Viktor’s eyes watered as he looked up at yet another 20. He hadn’t got 20 in his last class so he hadn’t failed yet. However as he looked up at his ranking he wondered why he could never seem to get a good rank. He had thought his chest glowing yellow meant something. He thought it meant he was special. He thought that he would get better at classes but it was like he was cursed. He wondered how he got into the school in the first place. He had sent in his admission at the last second when it mysteriously appeared at his doorstep. Come to think of it, he didn’t remember sending it in at all. Viktor’s head spun as he tried to remember that day.
He was going to answer the knock at the door, he got a splinter in his finger as he pushed on the wood. When he got the splinter out he saw that no one was waiting outside at all, but there was a piece of paper underneath a rock (to keep it from flying away). He picked it up, thinking it was now his destiny to go to the school he began to fill out the admission form.
Viktor remembered going downstairs to find a way to send back the form. He then remembered going outside…and then darkness…
He woke to his father shaking him awake, he vaguely remembered his father saying that he gave in the form…but it didn’t seem real. Nothing seemed real until he got the letter saying he would be going to the school. Strange, he had never tried to remember that day…but now that he was, he felt like he had been asleep the whole time.
Nicola slapped him on the back again, he jumped.
“It’s okay, you’ll do better next time!” She exclaimed, still looking nervous about what just happened.
Viktor gulped, wondering what he could have forgotten in that time.
