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.

“What exactly is the agreement?” Corrie asked. “What are you telling them, or asking them? I mean, you don’t have to tell me if it’s supposed to be a secret, but I’m really curious.”

Link shook his head. “It’s not really a secret. In fact, I guess it might be better if more people know. I trust you guys not to run around telling people about it.”

“Of course,” Edie said. “First of all, we’d have to explain about the faeries and the merpeople that go to college here, and then if they stopped laughing long enough to listen to the rest of it…”

“I’m sure he’s fine,” Corrie said, trying to soothe Roe’s worries. “He can take care of himself, right? The Djanaea have their own magic.”

She actually wasn’t sure whether Link could hold his own against any faeries who decided to give him trouble. But there had to be something he could do. It would be ridiculous to send someone with no more power than an ordinary human to talk to faeries like Mardalan.

“Yeah, I guess,” Roe said with a shrug and a twist of her mouth to the side. “But it’s mostly illusion magic, and he doesn’t want to hide himself from the faeries, since he has to talk to them. So I don’t know if it will keep him safe.”
