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?”

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.

Chatoyant College Book 12: Chapter 23: In Nature

Edie managed to focus on studying for the magic midterm, but that was probably only because she had two other people to help keep her on task. Her plan worked out well; she, Derwen, and Darcy were able to help each other a lot, bouncing ideas and questions back and forth. Edie had already thought she was pretty well prepared for tomorrow’s midterm, but she left their study session feeling even more confident than she had going in.

As she often did on Tuesday and Thursday nights, she had dinner with Derwen, Corrie, Annie, and Roe after studying. She made sure to let them know that she was meeting Leila after dinner, so they would understand that she had to rush off and Corrie wouldn’t worry about her.

Chatoyant College Book 12: Chapter 20: Springtime

Monday, April 17

It finally didn’t just look like spring outside—it felt like it, too. Edie was out early that morning, hoping to find Leila and get another chance to talk to her, but she was nowhere to be seen. However, being out early gave her a chance to drop her jacket off in her room between breakfast and magic class, which was good, because the sun was out and it was warm.

A student in magic class even asked if they could take the class outside, and Ginny said no for two reasons: one, she was pretty sure there was nowhere they could sit that wasn’t muddy, and two, they were doing review before the midterm, and she didn’t want anyone getting distracted.

Chatoyant College Book 12: Chapter 16: The Sisters

Corrie and Annie waited around after finishing their breakfasts to stay with Edie, though Roe headed back before they did, saying she had homework to do. When Edie finished, the three of them headed back to Gilkey.

Corrie had something she was wondering about that she hoped Edie might have asked Leila—since Leila was the only one likely to have an answer for them. She didn’t know whether to ask about it in front of Annie, though. It might be a really uncomfortable question for Leila, if she really had been involved in the story that Link had told them.

And she didn’t want to bring up Leila in front of Annie any more than she had to. She was still hoping that Edie and Leila would break up for good and that Annie would then be able to date Edie.
