That night I had slept amazing, with dreams filled with happiness and friendship, rather than the usual sadness and bullying. I never slept like that before, and the usual dark circles under my eyes are much lighter, my skin much brighter than its usual colorless hue. I walk into Sieri's room only to find her still asleep. Looking at the clock, It says 7:45. Class starts at 8.
“Sieri? It's time to wake up! Class starts at 8:00… and you still need to eat and get dressed…” I say tiptoeing over to her bed. “Sieri…” I whispered, smirking at my new found idea. Once I get over to her bed, I bring my hands to her stomach, just as I am about to start tickling her, she starts screaming,”No! I’m sorry! Please! Please don't hurt me!” Without even opening her eyes she curled her slender body into a ball, and started sobbing.
“Sieri! It's alright! I promise I won't hurt you! Please stop screaming…” I moved my hand to her back, and started rubbing it as I brought her body closer to mine. At this, she stops her screaming, but continues bawling.
“Tell me what is wrong.”I whisper softly.
“I’m not from here, ya know? I’m not from Witchwood.” She whispers back.
“So you are from one of the other cities?” I question. There are other cities, but Witchwood was the most populated, and also the capital for the Magic Born
“Yes. I'm from Plebis…”
“I have never heard of that place before… what's it like there? I bet you miss home… why didn't you go to school there? All magic born cities have schools for their children to g-”
“They do have a school. You have never heard of it because it's very small. And no, I do not miss home and I never will!” She yells again, this time in my face causing me to flinch.
“What happened? We can just skip school. Tell me what happened.”
