My bunkbed rattles beneath me and I sit up straight, hair grazing the
uneven ceiling. I wince as bits of dried paint rain down on my lap.
My plain bedroom is dark and still. Shadows shift and pull,
causing my stomach to flip pleasantly. Humans dislike the dark.
I love it.
I’ve always loved it. Unfortunately, there are some very bad creatures
who also enjoy the magic of darkness. I blink the sleep from my eyes and
immediately feel the swirl of magic in the air. Magic that doesn’t belong in
I swear under my breath as anxiety shoots through me. Though the top
bunk is rickety and the mattress too hard, I’m warm and comfortable in my
plush blanket—a gift from Raven this past Christmas. I’m going to have to
leave it behind.
I’m going to have to leave her behind.
There is very little in my life that makes me happy. She is one of them. I

“If you’re sneaking out, so am I. You promised you’d take me to your
next party.” The floor trembles beneath our feet. “What is that?” she
