Grace, Leo, Orion & Randy

Grace opened the door to the sound of a whimper and Randy whispering words the Heads would find unacceptable. He was sitting on her bed with Ri in the next, both surrounded by various sweets and looking at the screen on the wall between the beds.

“What’re you doing here?” she demanded as she tucked the jar of glands into the relative safety of a dresser drawer.

“Movie night,” answered her brother as his breath came back to him.

“Without me?”

“Not my fault you got detention forever,” he shrugged.

“With her?” she pointed at Ri.

“Hey!” Ri pouted. “What’s that supposed to mean?”

“Poor kid has never seen a proper movie before. Someone had to introduce her and since you weren’t—“

“Get outta my bed.”

“Credits aren’t over.”

Grace whipped out her wand and pelted him with tiny brass bees that came out of it. Randy held up his arms to ward them off. “OW! Ow, okay I’m going.” He rolled off the bed and returned the movies to their box. “Now, don’t go having nightmares about all this,” he told Ri. “I don’t want to have to explain to Leo why I had to lend you Mr. Fluffy.”


“Trust us, you don’t want it,” Grace said, crawling under the covers of her bed among bits of chocolate covered peanuts and Ice mice. “Mom’s washed that thing a million times and it still smells like old grapes.”

Randy waved to Ri as he left, nearly bumping into Leo who was coming around the corner at the same time. He’d overheard the end of the conversation, along with half of Reym House thanks to the open door. He quirked an eyebrow at his room mate as he noticed he’d just left his sister’s room.

“Who’s Mr. Fluffy?” he asked.

Randy blushed. “It’s nothing, just a stupid stuffed animal I had as a kid.”

“That you would lend to Ri?”

“Grace brings him to school. She says Nor gets lonely otherwise. Mom used to say he’d keep nightmares away.”

“Does it work?”

Randy shrugged. “In other news, you seemed to have made it with all your limbs intact.”

“No thanks to Grace.”

“Do I want to know?”

“She tried to shut me in a cupboard.”

Randy glared in his sister’s general direction. “Thought she’d stopped doing that after Heather.”

“No. Apparently not,” Leo scowled.

      It was pitch black in the corridors, except for the dim bubble of light that emitted from the tip of her wand. Strange noises rustled in the corridor and the wind battered trees against the windows,... more

      “So, it’s a shadow?” Ri asked, for the hundredth time. “Yes,” Randy sighed. “And it’s alive?” she pressed. “Also yes.” “Then how come that kid can touch it?” “Because he’s a hunter. He fights the... more
