Doomsday Academy, a couple weeks after “A Solution”

“Hey, Sunny. I was wondering, I mean, there’s that dance…” Ketil set his hand on Sunny’s arm, stepping close to her. The unseasonably warm day had all the students outside, enjoying a few moments of sunshine.

“The holiday dance?” Sunny smiled encouragingly. Ketil had a shock of red hair and horns like a demon’s, a crooked smile and a scar across his nose that even Changing hadn’t healed. “I hear it’s coming up soon, yeah?”

“I was wondering…” He trailed off as Aron lifted his hand off Sunny’s arm and dropped it as if it were dirty. “…I guess you already have a date?”

“No, no, I don’t… I didn’t…” Sunny’s smile faded.

Ketil shook his head. “I can read the wind, Sunny. Enjoy your date.”

“…what?” Sunny stared at Ketil’s retreating back in distressed confusion.

  1. Nooooooo, you stopped lying to yourselves about keeping the initial pact, don’t fail in the other direction! At least talk over new expectations first!

  2. Dear the impending four-way, one of the fundamentals of the whole process you’re not-quite-but-might-as-well-be setting up, is all the communication, ever. Talk! ETA: Though having just found myself repeatedly in a situation where I didn’t know enough to be able to ask useful questions — and got blindsided in my ignorance — I can sympathize. They’re new at this, and it is not easy.
