“Do you always think people are lying to you?” Ethan asked Gryffin, following him down the crowded halls. Gryffin stopped, not saying anything.
“What about me. I’m freaked out about this too!” Ethan said, walking up to Gryffin.
Gryffin turned to Ethan as the crowd of evers parted from the pair of boys blocking the halls.
“If I choose to believe you…” Gryffin started.
“You will help figure out what happened right?”
Ethan’s heart leaped.
“Of course…” He said.
“But…” He continued.
“What?” Gryffin inquired, fists clenching.
“You need to get people to stop being jerks to me and Rian.” Ethan said.
Gryffin laughed. “What do you think I can do?”
Ethan snorted awkwardly. “You are such an idiot.” He rolled his eyes.
“Come on say it.” Gryffin smirked.
“You are the coolest guy in school, if anyone can stop the rumours it’s you.”
“But…aren’t the rumours true?” Gryffin asked.
Ethan blushed and looked at his feet.
“Mate, it doesn’t matter if they are, I don’t really care.” Gryffin said, awkwardly stepping toward Ethan to pat his shoulder.
“I got to go…thanks though.” Ethan smiled weakly at his new ally. Gryffin watched him disappear into the crowd of evers. With a shake of his head the orange haired ever boy set off to find his friends. He couldn’t think of Ethan and Rian now, he couldn’t even think of his glowing chest. Right now he had to focus on classes.
“She had just finished and then she fell into my arms that’s all I know!” A voice said.
“You’re sure you don’t know anything else?” Another voice replied.
“I’m sure!” The first voice exclaimed.
“Because this was not a normal faint.” The second voice said seriously.
Taylor kept her eyes closed, despite being conscious.
“Well. We’ll get to the bottom of this, don’t worry.” The second voice said finally.
“Will she be okay?” The voice said that Taylor now recognized as Hale’s.
“If she wakes up she will be.” The unidentified voice said, shakily.
“You may leave.” The voice said.
“Can I…see here?” Hale asked, cautiously.
“Well…I suppose you can’t do more now, yes you may see her.
Taylor couldn’t find the strength to open her eyes. She heard footsteps. A curtain being pushed. The breathing of a boy coming closer. Hale.
“She…looks, healthy.” Hale said, his voice coming closer to her.
“Looks aren’t everything my boy.” The other voice said.
Taylor tried to open her eyes to reassure them that she was okay, but every time she tried to move any part of her body, nothing happened. She was becoming more scared every second.
“Hale, that’s you name right?” The voice said.
There was no response so Taylor assumed that he nodded.
“Hale. I need to go to supervise lunch. Nymphs are outside if you need them.”
“Right. Okay.” Hale replied.
Footsteps receded and Taylor knew she was alone with Hale. She would have shook with fear if she could move at all.
She felt Hale’s warm hand on hers. At least she could feel. That was good.
“Freezing cold…” Hale stated.
She felt his hand wrap around hers.
“Come on, wake up.” He said.
Taylor needed to move something, she needed to tell him that she was okay. She felt her finger move. She felt Hale’s hand squeeze hers tighter. She imagined what she would wake up for.
“Wake up for me.” He said.
She felt a tear run down her face as she tried to push her eyes open.
Hale. Hand. Life. Fairy Tales. Help. Friends. Future. Light flooded her eyes as her lids opened, she felt herself move.
“Taylor!” Hale exclaimed as she sat up.
Breathing hard, Taylor grabbed the sides of the bed she had been in and looked around.
“Where am I?” Taylor asked the smiling Hale.
“You’re okay?” He asked.
Taylor nodded. “What happened?”
“You don’t remember?”
Taylor racked her brain. “I can’t remember anything after Princess Etiquette…” She said.
“How can you forget?” Hale asked her. “You killed it in swordplay!”
“What? How long was I out?” Taylor asked, whipping her head towards him. Hale opened his mouth to speak but Taylor interrupted.
“You know what, just tell me everything from the beginning.”
Hale blushed. “O…kay” He said, he took a breath.
“Well, you were the first fight in the class and you and Jenna were against each other…and Jenna was beating you but then you won. When you came back to watch you kinda just…fainted I guess. The class started freaking out and you started glowing a bright green colour. Professor Espada got Dean Dovey and a lot of classes were canceled. She brought you to this infirmary thing and she started questioning students, when she was questioning me I asked to see you, and that’s why I’m in here…it’s lunch now.”
Green… it was just a colour but it made something inside Taylor stir.
“Can I go to lunch?” Taylor asked, brushing off the thought.
“Uh, I don’t know if that’s a good idea…” Hale said.
Taylor rolled her eyes.
“Well, I’ll ask Dean Dovey, you stay here.” Hale said, moving to his feet. He got up to leave and Taylor grabbed his hand. He looked back at her.
“Thank you…” Taylor said, smiling weakly.
Hale nodded awkwardly and left to get the professor.
“Ya, she just fell on Hale and started glowing!” Jenna exclaimed to her friends. “It was so scary!”
Gwyn’s hands covered her mouth and Cora gasped. Vienna was only worried about one thing though. “What if that means she has a nemesis already? That would mean she’s better than me at being good!”
The rest of the group gawked at her and Cora dropped her basket.
“What?” She asked. “I need to be the goodest ever!” Vienna explained. “She’s probably ahead already.” She pouted.
“I wonder why…” Jenna snorted.
Vienna huffed. “I’m just saying, it must have been an attack.” She continued.
“She is right though, she couldn’t have started glowing by herself.” Gwyn said, worriedly.
“They should investigate everyone in that class, see if anyone know that kind of magic.” Cora said.
“Can they do that? Is that possible?” Gwyn asked.
“Probably,” Cora replied. “You’d be surprised.”
“Do you think everyone knows already?” Jenna asked.
“Uh, ya, for sure.” Vienna said.
The quartet looked at the students in the clearing.
“Only the first day and something bad’s already happened.” Cora said, shaking her head. “We have to get to the bottom of this, I don’t want anyone to get hurt.”
“Do you think she’ll be okay?” Gwyn said.
No one answered, they didn’t want to hope.
“What are you talking about?” Gryffin asked his friend as he picked up his basket.
“I mean if stuff like this started on the first day, the nevers are gonna be worse than the year Sophie and Agatha came to the school.” the ever boy continued.
“Wha-, what are you talking about? What started on the first day?”
“You haven’t heard yet?” His friend Rowan asked.
“Heard what?!” Gryffin asked, wondering if this had anything to do with his glowing chest.
“Well, of course we assume that it was a never even if it was during class…” Rowan continued.
“I wasn’t there, Julian you explain.”
“Just tell me!” Gryffin ordered.
“OK” Julian said.
“Ok. I didn’t see exactly what happened but this girl fainted or something, right? And then she started glowing, it was weird.”
Gryffin’s heart lept. “Like her chest? It started glowing?”
“Huh?” Julian said. “No, like her whole body turned green and started to glow. It was like a spell, then they took her outta the room and she was still asleep, the whole school knows about it, where’ve you been?”
Gryffin’s heart sank. It makes sense that her chest didn’t glow since no one noticed when his did…but even so, he felt they had something to do with each other.
“Wait, who was it?” Gryffin asked, snapping out of his selfish thoughts.
His many friends looked at each other tensley. Rowan nudged Julian and nodded at their friend. A boy named Perseus shook his head subtly at Julian.
You know how he gets… Perseus mouthed to his friend.
Julian looked at Gryffin then back to Percy, conflicted. He decided it was right to tell the truth.
“It’s Taylor, that girl you gave the flower to…” He said finally.
The group of ever boys groaned, all mumbling something about how soft Julian was.
Gryffin however said nothing. His face turned cherry red but his eyes began to mist.
“Gryffin wait-” A boy said, reaching for him. It was too late.
Gryffin bolted through the crowd towards the tunnel of trees.
“Hang on!” He exclaimed again.
The fire haired boy had already disappeared into the tunnel and into the school for good.
“Should we go after him?” Julian asked, tensely.
The boys rolled their eyes and dispersed as Gryffin continued on his quest to find Taylor.
Gryffin pushed a clump of fairies out of the way as his boots sounded on the marble floors. His royal blue coat flying behind him as he bounded up a staircase. He wasn’ sure where he was going or what he was going to do if he found her but he felt like he needed to. He looked for signs of life to tell him where to go.
He scanned the large, beautiful scenery of the interior of the school for good.
He squinted around even though he could see perfectly.
Finally he saw the bobbing head or a curly haired boy who also seemed to be looking for something. As soon as Gryffin laid eyes on the moving…thing, in the distance.
He sped towards Hale who now had his back to him. Gryffin ran up to him.
Hearing the sound of running coming closer to him, Hale turned to see a crazy eyed ever running toward him. Suddenly, he felt a hand clamp on his arm, pulling him towards the noises.
“Where is she?” A frantic voice asked.
