Chatoyant College Book 13: Chapter 12: Distance Sight

“The first thing you should do,” Professor Rook told them, his drawling voice washing over them like a slow wave, “is choose a location to look for. It may be best to choose a location on campus, something you can picture clearly. Unless you have tried this before and have confidence that your abilities can stretch a good distance, choose a location that is close by. You must start out with easy choices in order to reach the more difficult ones later. However, it must be something you cannot physically see at this moment.”

Corrie sighed silently and tried to think of something she’d like to look at in distance sight. She didn’t think she’d be any better at it than she’d been at any of the other psionic abilities.

June at the Patreon

I posted some stuff on Patreon in June!

I posted a theme poll for $5+ patrons and a prompt post open to all.

For $3+ patrons, I posted the compilation, an epub file containing the May chapters of Chatoyant College and the May Patreon story.

Patrons also got early access to the ebook of Chatoyant College Book 5, Parents’ Weekend, two weeks before it was also available at Smashwords.

June’s Perennials free story is Stories for Children, the different versions of a story that a wealthy woman tells her two sets of children.

Finally, the June Patreon story is Kidnapped by Pirates!, the story of a resourceful, clever princess who gets herself out of a tight spot.

Corrie walked to her magic class with the question of Elrath’s glamour on her mind. Would he have had to keep it up deliberately in order for it to continue after his death? That certainly argued for the theory that he had committed suicide. But if the glamour would have stayed with him after he died no matter what, that didn’t tell them anything.

If he had committed suicide, she didn’t think the administration needed to worry about anyone else following him. As far as she could tell, no one had known him well, so their grief wouldn’t drive them to it.
