Chatoyant College Book 13: Chapter 47: Suspicion

Dawn looked at Link to make sure he wasn’t confused or upset by the question. He and Roe had been having complicated relationship difficulties; she hoped mentioning Roe’s recurring vision didn’t make it worse.

But he sighed and nodded without his expression changing. “I thought about it right away when I was fighting the teeth—well, as soon as I had some time to think, anyway. I wondered if the vision was meant for me. But if this is the same thing that killed Christy, then it’s not a vision that’s only meant for me, is it?”

“Did you tell her that you think it’s connected to the vision?” Dawn asked.

“I think we’re back to there being no connection,” Dawn said, shaking her head. “These are just random murders, most likely.”

“That’s good, Troy,” Edie said. “That means the faerie didn’t attack Sean because of you. It was probably just looking for any victim that night, and when you turned out to be too difficult, it went after him.”

Link shook his head, twisting his fork between his fingers. “I don’t know about that. It seemed awfully determined.”

Chatoyant College Book 13: Chapter 45: The Connection

Dawn stayed quiet, letting Link and Troy work this out on their own. If this turned into an argument, she would grab Corrie and Edie and leave. But they’d come here to learn about what had happened when the faerie had attacked Troy, and they weren’t going to give up this easily.

Troy looked up at Link guiltily. “I was going to tell you eventually. I just couldn’t find the right time.”

“Troy.” Link sounded like he was making an effort to speak calmly. “You can’t just go around kissing guys. You have two jobs here—you have to get your education and you have to find a wife.”

Chatoyant College Book 13: Chapter 44: It All Happened Very Quickly

Dawn grinned, but let Corrie lead the way, since she was the one carrying the pancakes. Corrie set the plate down on Troy’s desk. Troy reached out eagerly for it, though he winced a little when he stretched out his left arm. The upper arm was covered with a white bandage that bulked out the sleeve of his T-shirt.

Link shut the door behind them and sat down in a chair next to it, his arms folded. “What exactly did the magic professors tell you?”

“Thanks for the pancakes from both of us,” Troy said.

“You’re welcome,” Corrie said, laughing. “I grabbed you two clean forks. You can both eat.”

Chatoyant College Book 13: Chapter 43: Pancakes

Saturday, May 20

Dawn was just starting to wake up and decide whether to actually get out of bed yet when she heard a quiet knock on her door. A quick glance told her that there was no one in Naomi’s bed; sighing, she got up to open the door.

It was Corrie. “Oh, good, you’re awake,” she said, smiling much too cheerfully for this early in the morning. Though Dawn realized it probably wasn’t that early—it was just that it was Saturday.

“I am now,” she said.

Chatoyant College Book 13: Chapter 42: Plans

Edie, Dawn, and Corrie left the magic professors’ lounge, walking slowly and quietly. Edie wondered if they would really be able to find anything. Well, if Dawn and Corrie would find anything. She would just be holding back and trying to stay safe… as usual.

Not that she minded being safe. But it was awful when her friends were putting themselves in danger for a good cause, and she couldn’t help.

“Do you want to start looking tonight?” Corrie asked Dawn.

Dawn shook her head. “Not until we have more information.” She pushed open the front door to the magic building. “We should at least wait until Professor Lal gets back to you with that schedule and the phone numbers.”

Edie’s heart dropped in her chest. They were obviously going about this all wrong. “Then it’s not us you need to talk to,” she said. “Professor Strega, hasn’t Roe told you about this recurring vision she’s been having?”

Professor Strega frowned. “I have not had much chance to speak with Roe recently. We plan to meet tomorrow at noon.”

Corrie shook her head. “She did say that she’s planning to talk to you about it at that meeting, but she was glad to have it rescheduled… well, anyway, the important thing is that she says the vision is just teeth. That’s all she can ever remember from the visions.”
