✝ The Wolves of the Rose Cross ✝
I don’t have much time, so you have to listen to me closely, because it’s hard for me to concentrate when the binding makes things so fuzzy. Maybe if I think this hard enough, you’ll hear my thoughts, because I can’t say these things out loud. You can’t trust anyone at the Academy of the Rose Cross, Madeline, but the wolves at the Academy of the Iron Gate aren’t much better. It’s better just to not trust anyone in this town, ever again. Sister, when you start at Rose Cross tomorrow stay away from the Rose Council. Stay away and when I can speak again we’ll run away from this awful town and this awful life among beasts, and we’ll start a new life somewhere else. Bust most of all, Madeline, promise me that you will stay away from the boy named Logan Crowley.
