Chapter Nineteen

“And so, I had a lot of trouble controlling my poisoning powers when I was little. I regularly poisoned Skyler because he was trying to keep me from poisoning everyone else and teach me how to… not do that.” Vikki finished, starting to slow down her story as Zoey not so subtly crawled backwards from sitting beside her to sitting … Read More

Chapter Eighteen

The clean up after they drove off was a bit difficult, but Doug managed to fix what he could before nearly passing out. “Those collars… They aren’t developed by JARGON, but they do use them. It halts the magical properties in the body, and zap the prey of energy. Those ones are specific to dragons, but I bet they use … Read More

Chapter Seventeen

Brie kept her promise that she and Aisha would refuse to sit with them at lunch, and in fact, were absent from the cafeteria completely. Dominic stayed true, however, and was waiting at their regular table when they arrived. Zabrina came down shortly after, and although she wanted to discuss what Brie had said earlier, Zoey tried her best to … Read More

Chapter Sixteen

They had gone back to get their cars, but Atlas had left his car to them as Ben, Blythe and he went to his house as soon as they could. Doug headed straight there as well, but he had to drive his truck. Luckily, the roads were relatively clear of traffic, so they were able to get there in good … Read More

Chapter Fifteen

When Dominic asked if Blythe was feeling alright that day, Zoey was surprised, and also confused. They had passed in the hallway earlier, and she appeared fine. She told him this, and he gave her a confused look. “That’s strange,” he remarked. “She wasn’t in the class I have with her. Did she have an appointment or something and have … Read More

They arrived at the water park and it was like a scene from a movie. For starters, the day had proved to be blisteringly hot, and once Zoey quietly confirmed that it wasn’t the fault of Atlas, and that he couldn’t even do that, she thought that she had never seen a place so beautiful. Doug agreed, and looked a … Read More

Chapter 13

When he did so, his arm gave out under him and his chin would have hit the ground, if not for Lynda barely managing to catch his torso as gently as she could. “You’re okay, it’s okay” Sullivan told … Read More

Chapter Twelve

Zoey packed her book bag with clothes and the things she would need for the trip, and even though she had practiced a few times flying, she was less than excited. Most of the times she had to fly had been due to being saved, but this was promising to be a longer trip than any before. She headed over … Read More

Chapter Eleven

Zoey hadn’t been to Skyler’s place before, but she saw that it was much larger than anyone else’s house that she’d seen previously, although she had to admit she hadn’t visited all of their places yet. It had nice little gardens around the property, including a small one beside the steps. When she paused to look at it, she saw … Read More

CHAPTER TEN

“Do you think he knows we’re both here?” Doug asked Ferris, who sniffed, but then responded, “Probably, I’m not sure how he knew we were here at all, so it’s best to assume he knows everything and be careful.” Rebecca opened her eyes again. She sighed, and then unfolded her legs. “That sounds like… Karver Zinc, he’s with JARGON and … Read More
