Devon and Cassandra
He's almost as bad as Eve
Mon Feb 14, 2011 7:54pm

Against the majority of likelihood, and history so foully rehashed, and conditioned submission, Devon woke up. It was one of those pinpricks, he wasn't sure which one, but they stopped shortly after. It jabbed him in the side and then! - then - he woke up. It was the sweeping, reckless feeling of wanting to take gasoline to his house, of scheming to make his parents pay. He could not learn. Every plot ended with himself and Erin bruised and broken, he got so used to seeing that terror in her eyes every time he told her, "I have an idea."

She was happy to let it go. She'd plead, weep, they just had to try harder! They had to be good! They were born the scourge of the family, and Erin was desperate to earn her wings.

It was Sarah's hand, over her mouth, and one of those final pricks. He was instantly furious with himself for having wasted the entire walk down to the hall, and then again for wasting the time to be furious with himself. He lit Annet's office on fire, everything of organic material. He wanted to kill Ravenscroft, right there, but miraculously kept himself back. Pushed a note between Sarah's hand and her lips, to assure her that Annet's office was on fire and would need extinguishing. . . eventually.

Rand. Devon wanted to spit. He hadn't been protecting Cassandra, like Devon had. Rand had made her the broom so he could push himself on her, a magical invention tightrope of seduction.

"Rand!" Cassandra gasped; Devon's head snapped fiercely to her. Without a whit of intention, Eve got a nosebleed.

But Rand, in handcuffs, was as devastating a loss as Annet.
