Year Three of the Addergoole School, Day One
Being home for a month had been too weird. Allyse’s skin felt itchy, working around the layers of geasa that were at once unnecessary and far too confining. She’d wanted to ask her mother about Addergoole.… Read on

“Perhaps you’d like to speak first today, Shahin.” Carter’s gaze was penetrating, and, despite his gentle tone, there was a clear force behind his words. She nodded slowly. It was fair. She cringed. It was fair, she had to admit.
Of course, he probably thought it would be Xaviera that was foremost on her mind today; the girl sat beside her, clearly not quite at ease in the unfamiliar cy’ree meeting.… Read on

Someone help us ’cause we’re doing our best
Trying to make things work, but man, these times are hard
“I think part of the problem is, she doesn’t know she’s broken.” Shahin looked over their late-night Café dinner at Emrys, her lips pursed in thought.… Read on

Yo, you wanna hit us? We can hit back
If you talk that talk, you got’s to live that.
This is self defense
Shahin had gotten her shopping trip. It had taken some coaxing, some cajoling, and the support of Carter, Kendra (given some practice, the mouse would have teeth. … Read on

It’s not all that glitter is gold, half the story has never been told
And now you see the light, you stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights
She missed Emrys’ certainty. Playing off of him, there was never any room for wavering or doubt; with him at her back, she knew where she was going.… Read on

I wish the real world
Would just stop hassling me
They were something of a ragtag group, Shahin mused, as they headed out to the Texas State Capitol on the fourth day of their trip. The Fifth Cohort were adjusting well enough to being back out “in the world;” they’d only been in Addergoole for a couple months, after all.… Read on

And just in time
In the right place
Suddenly I will play my ace
She’d done a good job of faking confidence when they started the challenge, but inside, Shahin had been a mess of nerves. She wanted this to work, but they weren’t the brightest cy’ree by a long shot, and they had so many weak links, links that could be yanked at any point by their Keepers or by their old damage.… Read on

We got one thing in common when we walked in
A memory we’re tryin’ to kill
Swearin’ up and down we’ll never try again, but
We know we will
Welcome to the club
Shahin settled onto Carter’s bed for their Sunday cy’ree meeting, looking around at the group thoughtfully, her gaze returned just as pensively by Eris.… Read on

For all together, a team can weather, any storm they may go through.
Yes, teamwork, can make a dream work,
Can make the greatest dreams come true
She tried to pretend she wasn’t clinging to Emrys’ hand as they walked down the hall, and was stupidly grateful for the fact that he seemed to be clinging every bit as tightly, and ignoring it every bit as studiously.… Read on

Channing knocked on Carter’s door nervously Sunday evening, hoping either Kendra or Callista would be able to make it. Nikolai had said he’d be there, but Eris was impossible to pin down on plans, no-one had been able to find Shahin, and the other two members of their cy’ree both had rather controlling Keepers.… Read on

Does anybody out there want a second-hand heart?
One that’s already broken in?
Conrad looked uncomfortable, his tail drooping, as he took his seat back with the crew. Cassidy, facing him, picked up on it immediately.
“Hey guys, what’s up?” His question seemed directed as much at Kailani as at Conrad.… Read on
