Chatoyant College, Chatoyant College Interlude: Summer Break

Chatoyant College Interlude: 11, 12, and 13

11: Corrie to Edie and Dawn

YES!!! I knew they’d figure it out!

12: Edie to Corrie and Dawn

You both got the email, right? What a relief.

Not a lot of details, though. I hope they’ll tell us what they’ve figured out to make the campus safe. Maybe they won’t tell the whole student body, but we can go talk to Professor Lal and make her tell us.

13: Dawn to Corrie and Edie

Wow, they cut that close, didn’t they? I was afraid it was going to be bad news when it got so late in the day without any word, but the email finally came out. I might have been a little distracted at work checking my personal email, but there’s never enough work to fill up my time anyway. (Sorry, I may have complained about that a hundred times already.)

I just hope they’ve really done it right. Maybe we can get them to explain their system to us so we can poke any loopholes and they can fix them.

Of course, we know how to keep ourselves safe, even if their plan is full of loopholes. And maybe now that everyone knows about faeries, they’ll also learn to keep themselves safe—even if we have to teach them.

Now I know for sure I can say, see you two in the fall! I’m looking forward to having you as roommates!

Chatoyant College Interlude: 6: Corrie to Dawn

Hey Dawn,

No, I told my mom the whole story. I’d already told her about the faeries a while back, though. I’d tried to keep them a secret, but it’s impossible for me to hide things from my mom. I knew she’d freak out a lot more if she thought that I had dropped out of college than if she knew the truth, so I had to make sure she knew why I might not be going back in the fall!

Chatoyant College Interlude: 1: Corrie to Edie

Hey Edie,

Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. I really don’t think it’s fair that I should work a clopen on my first two days back from college. (A clopen is when you close the restaurant one day, and then have to be there to open it the next morning. I don’t know if that’s a normal word, that’s just what we call it. Anyway, it sucks, because I barely had enough time to get home and sleep. I had to take my run after my shift.)

So that’s how my summer vacation is going so far. But I knew I’d be working the whole time. I have to earn that mad money!

Chatoyant College Book 13: Chapter 69: Normal Families

Corrie headed back up the stairs, followed by Edie and Dawn, after getting Charlie to agree to meet them at the magic building at seven regardless of how many other werewolves he’d managed to get to agree to join. If he could get two others, and she could get her dad, that would be enough. Or if he could get one other, and she could get her dad and one other, that would be enough.

Besides, she didn’t really want to call her dad in front of him. It would be uncomfortable enough in front of Dawn and Edie. She and her father got along pretty well now, but they’d known each other for less than a year—or she’d known him for less than a year, really, while he’d known about her all her life, even if he’d never known much.

Chatoyant College Book 13: Chapter 68: Be There

Corrie raised her eyebrows and looked at Dawn. That was probably the best they were going to get in terms of Tom agreeing to help them.

Dawn blinked a few times, but said, “We’re all meeting at the magic building at seven. That’s a little while before sunset. Do you want to meet us at the gate at five of seven or so and we’ll take you there?”

Tom raised his eyebrows. “Do you see a clock out here?”

“Uh… meet us at the front gate now?”

Chatoyant College Book 13: Chapter 67: Revenge

They all agreed to meet at seven with whatever backup they could find. Troy and Link seemed to be arguing in quiet voices as the students left the magic building, so Corrie, Edie, and Dawn separated from them easily, even though they were both going north and staying carefully to the paths.

It was another humid day. “Do you think it’s going to storm?” Corrie asked Dawn.

“There’s a storm near here. I’m not sure if it’s coming in this direction.” Dawn glanced back. “Do you think Tom will agree to help us?”

Chatoyant College Book 13: Chapter 66: The Magical Net

Corrie was a little surprised to find that she was getting more and more enthusiastic about this plan as they discussed it. She didn’t really need to be convincing Troy and Link of the plan—it was the magic professors’ plan, so it was their job to get the Djanaea on board. But she wanted the plan to work, even if not all of it made sense.

Maybe it was just that it was the only plan they had. She wanted Gerlina to be caught; she wanted the murders to stop. If this was going to give them the best chance, then she wanted everyone in on it.

“I didn’t know there were werewolves on campus,” Link admitted.
