Tempest stood with her back laid against one of her bedpost. She looked at Divina who was wearing a vampire costume. They were waiting fro Nila to finish changing into her costume. She was behind her black curtains surrounding her bed. Bother her and Divina jerked when they heard Nila fall.

"I'm all right," they heard her say. "Just stay where you are."

Tempest and Divina shared a worried look but stayed put on their beds. Tempest rolled her eyes and went to her mirror. She fixed up her hair and replaced her hellish halo. Tinkerhell. That's what she was. She looked down at her red fishnet stockings and fixed the back of her red heels.

"Divina can you please come over here and adjust my wings?"

"Sure, not like I've got anything better to do anyway." Tempest looked at her through the corner of her eyes. Divina was sulking her way toward her very slowly. When she reached Tempest she crossed her arms.

"What exactly is it you want me to do?"

"Just re-adjust my wings."

"All right."

Tempest felt Divina pull and tug them then turned her around.

"Is that good enough?"

"Yeah," she said looked at the mirror.

"All right then." Divina sat on Tempest bed and Tempest watched her. Her eyes revealed anger and sadness. And her attitude suggested that she was taking most of her anger out on everyone.

"Ta dah!" jumped Nila making Tempest lose her focus on Divina's eyes. Nila laced one leg after the other over the foot of her bed.

"What the bloody hell are you," asked Tempest staring at the pink and black costume.

"A graveyard fairy." She fixed her pink fishnet stockings as she fixed her feet into her black heels.

"You're wearing pink," remarked Divina.

"Yeah so? Like I've ever cared what people think of me."

"Well maybe you should!"

"Divina What's the matter with you?" exclaimed Tempest.

"Everything! I hate everything!" She stormed from the room and Tempest and Nila ran after her in there thick heels. They feet hit hard against the stairs.

"Divina," they both yelled in unison.

"Just leave me alone!"

She ran off and Chad and Void borage watched her go. Tempest walked to the middle of the room and looked at the closing entry way.

"Do either of you what going on wither her?" she demanded.

"No," they said. There was a pause as they all fell silent not knowing what to do.

"Look," began Chad, "I'll go find her and talk to her."

"She said she wanted to be alone," said Nila.

"Just leave it all to me," he said agitated. He walked form the dormitory and Tempest picked up her dagger.

"Lets just get to our classes."


They all sat in Defense Against the Good Arts. Tempest looked around the classroom for Divina and Chad. They weren't there. Tempest Void and Nila all exchanged worried expressions.

"Attention students," said Madam Jacquilina. "Now today I have a special treat. Behind these doors are many gnomes. Can anyone tell me about knows?"

"They are the most annoying creatures in the world. They cause mischief and take things. Especially food, particularly sweets like candy," said Nila.

"Good Miss Cerdwin. Fifteen points to Slimythings." Nila smiled and Void and Tempest stared at her in shock.

"Hey, I might not be bloody smart in everything, but I do have my specialities," she smiled secretly and turned back to her paper.

"How exactly did you know all that,"asked Void.

"During my trip America, we went to the beach through like door that is almost like the door in the Shrieking Shack. Gnomes came out of nowhere and covered the place. They had to evacuate. It was hilarious, you know, after it blowed over." Tempest and Void laughed and Nila just sighed exasperated.

"So, that the only way she could know anything," remarked Void. Nila let out a gasp and threw her book at him. Tempest fell over laughed.

"Well I didn't hear you answer!"

"I raised my hand you nitwit. You just answered first," said Void.

"If you two haven't noticed the whole class is staring at you," said Tempest.

Tempest watched them both flush in embarrassment. Madam Jacquilina smiled a think you toward her and called back for everyone attention.

"Lets get back to the lesson if you don't mind. Now as I was saying, behind each of these doors are at least a dozen gnomes."

"That like six dozen gnomes," said Void.

"Shut up smart mouth," remarked Nila.

"Now," continued Madam Jacquilina, "in that big crate over three, there is an enormous amount of candy. Let the lesson begin. Ahlohamora!"

She sat at her desk and out of the door came a dozens of little gnomes. Nila acted fast and stood on her seat. Void and Tempest began to kick at their legs as they jumped on the desk. Tempest pulled out her wand and looked around the room.

"Eek," she heard someone scream. She turned around and smiled. Astrea was being attacked by gnomes.

"Hilarious." She pointed her wand at the gnomes and listened one last moment to Astreas' voices creaming fro the gnomes to get off her. "Flipendo," she finally said. The gnomes knocked off of Astrea and she jumped on her desk showing no gratitude whatsoever.

"That's it," began Nila standing up from her crouched position. "I've had enough of these pesky creatures."

She stood up and walked from her seat to another desktop. She repeated that three more times till she finally stopped.

"Bombarda!" The casket exploded and the candy fell everywhere on the floor. Nila smiled in the direction of Tempest and Void.

"Brilliant job," said Void. "Now kneel down and on my mark both of you Petrificus Totalus on all at them. All right?" The nodded. "One...two...three!"

"Petrificus Totalus!" they all said in unison. The gnomes fell stiff to the ground and Tempest ears jerked at the noise that was not from a student. She jerked her body around and stared at a gnome that was running toward the candy.

"Nockturals Infinis," she muttered.

Nila stood back up and jumped to the ground. She walked back to them stepping over gnomes on her way.

"Well," she said leaning against the desk, "that was fun." They laughed but were quickly silence by an applause. They turned around and Madam Jacquilina was applauding them.

"In all my years as a teacher not one student has actually used their brain to unleash the candy. Not one student has even stopped s single gnome let alone all of them in a single wave of magic. I must say, you three are very promising students. I am awarding each of you twenty points. Class dismissed." She smiled and Tempest placed her hands on her hips.

"I must agree, we do kick ass." They all left the classroom calmly and out in the hallway was Zoltron.

"Hello cousin. You know I barely see you anymore. Isn't it a shame?"

"Oh yes. Now what is it you want?"

"I wanted to know if you've heard the news?"

"What news?"

"That Astrea is the seeker for Dufflebaggies."

"She's what?!"

"I'll take that as a no you didn't know."

"No I didn't. How long have you know?"

"Just since today. I wanted to know because your first match against her is tomorrow."

"They were waiting till that last minute to see if they could psyche Zephyr out," remarked Nila.

"Has anyone ever told you that you talk to bloody much," asked Void.

"Just shut up."

"Anyway are you ready?" asked Zoltron.

"Of course. Oh, by the way, have you see n either Chad or Divina?"

"Yeah. They were in the library. Divina looked pretty upset."

Tempest, Void, and Nila looked at each other worried. Tempest asked Zoltron to lead them to where he had seen them. He complied and they all ran, skipping their next class.

"At least we lasted this long without skipping classes," said Void as they ran.

Tempest laughed. "Yup, I guess nothing last forever."

They crept slowly into the library and Zoltron led them slowly to the back. Deep in the back they heard voices and Tempest told them all to stay quiet.

"It's just not fair," said Divina.

"Just calm down Divina. Everyone getting worried. I lied to Zephyr. I don't like to lie to her."

"Like she even cares, and why are you calling her Zephyr? She's not even around, so call her anything you want!"

"Stop it! She's your friend!"

"So?! She's the reason that I'm be-throned! If my sister hadn't sacrificed her life for hers, she would be the one be-throned! Not I!"

"It's not her fault she carried Morgan essence. She didn't cause any of thus! She didn't even cause your mother to fall ill. None of it is her fault so stop being so angry with her."

"NO!" They heard her sit down. "I wish I could save her."

"Don't worry, everything will be all right," they heard Chad sooth. Tempest gripped her fists and circled the bookshelf quietly. She stared at Divina sitting on Chad's arms.

"So you're be-throned?" They jerked around and stared ta her. She smiled and crossed her arms. "Why is it, I'm always the last to know these things? Oh well I guess I'll just have to do my own screaming."

"Tempest . . . " began Chad. She glared at him then turned her attention back towards Divina.

"You really think you're life is so much worse?"


"Shut up! Your sister may have died, but I had to witness my father die before my eyes! I was three years old! You at least had your sister and got to know her! My father died! His death stopped nothing! I am wanted dead Divina! So top being a bloody bitch! At least your mother is dying and not dead!"

Tears dripped down her cheek and she walked away. She slammed the library doors in her wake and heard the echo of them closing in the hallway.



"Are you all right?"

"I will be, just alert me of they come to find me. Would rather be alone for the day."

"All right."


"All right."
There was a pause but she knew he was still there. "Are you going to the secret passage way?"Tempest laid down of the floor of the secret corridor. No one knew she was here so she's didn't more. The whole day had past and she was beginning to grow hungry. She sat up and dusted herself off. The word spun as she looked around. She had spent the whole day there sleeping and crying. It wasn't fair how Divina was blaming her she thought. It just wasn't fair. She leaned against the wall and looked up at the ceiling. She wanted to move but she could force her body to move an inch.

"Need help." She turned and stared at Gorx. He was dressed as Master Vlad ad in her opinion looked hot.

"No I'm all right, just, uh, sit down with me."

"Already way ahead of you." He sat down and she laughed. "What's so funny?"


"No tell me."

"Only you would think to look for me. Especially here."

"Well I am the only one that knows you're here, that is, unless you told someone of this place.

She shook her head and smiled. "No I think I'll just keep this place to myself."

"Good thinking. That's usually what I do. Only you know of this passage. I haven't told anyone."

"Good," she agreed. Se turned to him and noticed he was staring down at her. "Why did you come looking for me?"

"I heard you screaming in the library. I thought I'd give you a while to relax and cool down, as well as bring you food."

He brought out some pumpkin pasties and candy corn. She grabbed it from his hand and without any regard for how stupid she would look, stuffed it in her mouth.

"Wow, you were really hungry weren't you?"

"You have no idea," she said swallowing the last of the food. "Thank you by the way."

'Don't mention it." He stood up and offered his hands. "Come one I'll sneak you back to the Common room."

"Thank you." She took his hand and he helped her up. She took his hand and he helped her up. She dusted herself off and when she looked back up at him, he was staring down at her.



"I like you, a lot, ad I think you know that already."

"Well I . . . "

"Just close your eyes for a moment, I have a present for you." Se agreed and closed her eyed tightly. Suddenly she felt a pressure against her lip. Then came a body pushing her up against the wall. She circled her arms around his neck and let herself relax. As soon as she let herself relax she felt Gorx pull away and look at her.

"We should go."

"Not yet." She kissed him back and he held her tightly. Soon, what was supposed to be a short peck on the lips turned into a long passionate one.
