"Stupid trees," Ri grumbled as her boot snapped and crushed over twigs on the forest floor. "Stupid dagger. Stupid sap. Stupid people."

It was all stupid but the most stupid thing was Zydrie. Zydrie who had always been one of the least annoying people she knew. She liked Quidditch and Quidditch practice and Quidditch games and talking about Quidditch and all things generally Quidditch related. Orion could easily get on board with that. Sure, she was a bit bouncy and talked far too much but it was usually about Quidditch so...

But now. Now. Now all she did was talk about how they must be related and other stupid things. And she made it sound so real. Even her Gooey McGooFace sidekick was starting to believe it. But it was all rubbish. Stupid stupid rubbish. Just like this stupid...

"Forest?"

She could have sworn she was heading for the road. A couple of hours down that and she'd be near the train station and a one way ticket to Quidditch camp where she belonged. However, the direction she was sure was clear before she looked down to prise her foot from a root was now blocked by dense branches. She did a quick 360 spin and saw that the opening was now to her left. Odd.

Either she'd gotten turned around somewhere or this forest was playing tricks on her, just like Zydries stupid tree. Hearing the sound of her friends voice calling her name made her decide that any way was better than staying put. She'd rather take on a whole coven of banshees right now than deal with whatever Zydrie wanted to talk about.

Ri practically felt her insides leave her skin as a loud crack shook the little clearing. She thought she screamed but maybe that was just her ears ringing. When she looked round a boy dressed in black with an amused sneer on his face, not unlike Leos, was staring back at her.

"Did I frighten you?" He cooed, disgust and amusement rolled into one.

"A bit," she nodded. Then, "What are you doing sneaking up on people like That?"

"Well let's see. You're on my land. In my forest. I should be asking you what you're doing trespassing."

"I was invited," she frowned.

"Not by me," he countered.

She tried to ignore the very uncomfortable shiver than ran from the base of her neck all the way to her toes. Something about him wrenched at her gut and made her want to run as far in the opposite direction as was possible. But she was stuck. Like a bunny I'm headlights his gaze had her rooted to the spot.

"Zydrie invited me. But I'm actually on my way out so if you just point me towards the road we'll both be happy."

A sinister chuckle. "You're miles from the road."

Ri looked off into the tangle of branches. "Can't be I only just left!"

    The sprites green eyes glowed at the opportunity to serve and bowed it's little head gracefully. "Breakfast will be served shortly," it offered. "Allow me first to show you to your rooms." Dutifully... more

      It had been an hour at least since Ri stormed out with Zydrie bouncing after her. Neither Schuler nor the remaining Hardy looked in the slightest bit concerned and Talora was still slightly shaking.... more
