Chatoyant College Book 12: Chapter 31: Pass It On

When Dawn and her friends reached the magic professors’ hallway, it was immediately obvious which of the professors was keeping watch on campus tonight—Professor Strega.

Dawn sighed a little, but she knew it could have been worse. She wasn’t sure how much she trusted Professor Lal anymore, and Professor Rook was really difficult to talk to. It didn’t help that he appeared, to her Sighted eyes, as literally a giant crow.

Chatoyant College Book 12: Chapter 30: The Way It Was

Dawn, Corrie, and Edie walked the rest of the way to the dining hall, enjoying the weather, then claimed a table with their jackets (it was not quite warm enough for them to go without—though Rico was already in short sleeves every day) and headed over to the food.

Dawn got in line for the pasta station, noticing that the girl in front of her was vaguely familiar. She didn’t think about it until she started telling the dining hall worker what she wanted and the girl, waiting for her food to be finished, turned to look at her.

It was Edie’s friend—no, she wasn’t Edie’s friend anymore. She had been Leila’s friend and had annoyed and harassed Edie. Chris, that was her name.

Chatoyant College Book 12: Chapter 29: Bargains

“We told you about this,” Dawn said. Had it only been a couple of weeks ago? It felt like a very long time had passed since Elrath had broken the treaty and abdicated the faerie throne. “We didn’t believe you that the treaty wasn’t being enforced, and one of the reasons was that the magic is still keeping people from finding out about faeries.”

Elrath frowned. “We talked about how Alaineth had selectively enforced the treaty, and the division in magic between the faerie land and campus land. The division in the magic cannot be undone.”

Chatoyant College Book 12: Chapter 28: Smoothing

Friday, April 21

Dawn caught sight of Edie and Corrie on the path and lifted her arm to wave at them, making big gestures so they could see her. Corrie waved back, and Dawn picked up her pace. The two of them must have been waiting for her; they’d all agreed to meet for dinner after their last classes, and they both had afternoon classes that let out earlier than hers.

She caught up to them with relief. “Happy Friday,” she told them.

“Yeah, you, too,” Corrie said with a laugh. “Had a long week?”

Chatoyant College Book 12: Chapter 27: Progress

Charlie put his hand on the back of his head, rubbing his hairline. “Not really. I mean, obviously you’ve seen that I’m able to move through faerie territory, though I avoid it when I can.”

Corrie nodded. “Of course. It only makes sense, since they’re pretty scary.”

“Well, to be fair, we’re pretty scary, too.” Charlie grinned. In his human shape, it just looked like a friendly, somewhat goofy smile, but Corrie had seen him in wolf form. She could imagine the canine snarl hidden behind that kind face.

Chatoyant College Book 12: Chapter 26: Losing Control

Corrie laughed. On her way back from the dining hall, she’d met Charlie on the path, and they were walking to Gilkey together. While she knew she should go inside and get back to studying for her math midterm, she was having too much fun to go be boring now.

“Aren’t you a bit cold?” Charlie asked her, draping his arm around her shoulders.

“We’re almost to Gilkey,” she pointed out. “And it’s not that cold tonight. I’m warm enough in my hat.”

“Are you sure?” He squeezed her shoulders, shaking her a little bit.
