That is, until Edmond decides to work against the Queen and disappears to join the Queens brother, and setting a curse over the country. Concerned for his brother (and the world), Sebastian sets of to search after him. But he needs help.


22. ...

It was first when they had put back quite a distance from the castle that Lina dared to say anything. It wasn’t that Sebastian was calmer, he was just more anxious without the usual optimism.

She had never realised how much she had wanted to go, until Sebastian seemingly had given up. Sure, they could die, but at least she would die in a magic country by the hands of a dragon or other monster. A few hours ago she was sure she was going to miss her parents too much, but now she felt like running away and not looking back.

“I’ve been thinking and-“

“You can’t just give up like this!” The words came out harsher than she had intended them too. Good, she thought. At least he got the message.

“You don’t even know what I was going to say!”

She rolled her eyes as response. “You were probably going to go on about how you want to go, but it’s technically not right...bla, bla, bla.”

“No I wasn’t,” he said, not entirely convincing. She looked at him. “Well…yeah… But it’s just. I want to do the right thing.”

“Sometimes you need to do a bit of wrong to do something right.”

“Pretty sure that’s not how it works.”

Lina grinned. “Pretty sure it is.”

He sighed, but before he could retaliate she bit back. “What about the school roof? Weren’t there some rules for that too?”

Sebastian looked deeply torn, and her annoyance was relieved by sympathy.

“Can you really imagine backing out of the plan, whatever that is, now?”

He slowly nodded. “Fine. Ok. We might be hung for this and publically humiliated, but who cares. We’re doing this.”

“Yes,” Lina punched the air. “We’re so doing this.” Linas stomach growled.

“After we’ve eaten,” Sebastian grinned.

“First eating, then saving everyone,” Lina agreed. Sounds like a plan to me.
