(A/N): I only co-wrote this chapter, RennRaven came up with the plot.
* * *
Once we entered out dorm, I immediately went to take a quick shower. I absolutely loved the feeling of the cold water slowly running down my stripped body. Showers always gave me a chance to think. Right now, I was thinking about what had just happened. I can’t believe they kidnapped us just like that! How did they even do that? Where was Dylan? Last I remember, I feel asleep on Dylan’s chest!
When I came out, I practically ‘threw on’ the first thing I saw which was a gray striped sweater and a pair of shorts. I glanced over at Natalie and saw her sleeping on my bed. I decided to just leave her there because, human or not, she needs sleep. Anyway, she’d probably stalk me once she wakes up. Plus, I can’t have her disturbing just like her brother when I’m writing my article.
I picked up the white side bag that I usually use for school and headed out to Kirsten’s small office in Jefferson University. It’s been over two weeks since I last saw her. I think I just pissed her even more since I didn’t finish my work.
Before I knew it, I was already standing by the door of her office. My knuckles lightly hit the wooden door repeatedly and her voice rang out. “Come in!” She yelled and I did as told. As soon as our eyes met, she held out her hand and said, “Where’s the article?”
I rummaged through my bag, pulled out the unfinished and nervously handed it to her.
She flipped through it and glared at me. “It’s unfinished.
I remained silent and her eyes went to my left hand. “I’m sorry.” I shyly said. “Th-There’s just so much things to do, places to be… Who knows what lies ahead?”
“You’re getting married?” She slowly asked, going off topic.
She dropped the article on her table, grabbed my hand and led me out of her office and into the little park that I found weird that I go to it almost every single day. The park was empty. No one was there but the pretty birds. It was quiet and peaceful and only five in the morning.
“Who’re you marrying?” She asked as she let go of my hand.
I know I’m going to be a hypocrite for saying this but, what else can I do? She’s my boss and if I ever lie to her, she could get me kicked out of this school! “…Dylan…?”
Then we heard a gasp come from the tree that was above us. My guess of who that gasp belonged to was Natalie at first but as soon as we raised our heads, we saw Brittani sitting on the tree just like what Katniss Everdeen did in the Hunger Games but with one of her hands cupping her mouth in shock.
What’s she doing up there? I thought and then I felt Kirsten grab my hand and pull my away.
“Let’s go…” She mumbled and once we far enough, Natalie came in from nowhere and stood in front of us, blocking the way.
“Vicky, where’d you go?!” She asked as she placed her hands on her hips.
“I had to submit the article, remember?”
“How could you?!” She exclaimed in her ‘angry’ voice. “I fell asleep for one hour, I repeat, one hour and you just leave me there along in the dark!”
I remained silent and just kept staring at the red headed girl that was standing before me with her hands on her hips.
Isn't that Natalie, Adam's sister, the bird? I never imagined Victoria ever being Tori, the princess of Luna Brillante. I can't believe I never saw it coming! I mean, the familiar look, scent and personality...
Which reminds me, isn't her brother, Sonne, the one I've always dreamed to be with? I can't believe I have found the princess even if I'm just the little messenger who got fired because my heart was beating faster whenever that boy was around.
