Chatoyant College Book 12: Chapter 38: Settling In

Derwen’s cries attracted the attention of a few people around them, and they started making enough noise that Ginny came over and told Derwen she’d done a good job. Darcy, on Derwen’s other side, was smiling a little, but her shoulders slumped. Edie caught Darcy’s eye and rolled her own eyes toward the ceiling. Darcy’s smile widened.

“Sarah,” Ginny said, speaking loudly enough that the whole class could hear her, “while I’m pleased that you’ve caught on so quickly, remember that this is almost as much luck as it is ability. The more magic you have available to you, the easier it will be to reach your magic and start something. And it may be that you have a particular affinity for fire magic, but that when we do water, air, and earth, you will not have so much luck.”

Chatoyant College Book 12: Chapter 37: The Flame

“I’d like you all to close your eyes and sit quietly for a moment. Ignore the candle in front of you and the classroom around you for the time being. Don’t think of anything but my voice. Try not to fidget, if you can.” Ginny’s voice grew warm for the last sentence, and someone laughed.

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.
