On the day of Emily Lilac's fifteenth birthday, her father gives her a purple amulet - a lilac amulet – an ancient relic of her family. When she puts it around her neck, her world, her life changes.
She discovers that she is not human. And neither is everyone else.
She is part of the new generation of Psychics in a world of monsters. She is one of the only, one of the rarest species in existence and she is the key to ending the war between the two most powerful species around.
And in the midst of it all, there is a love. A Gravern and an Eternal come together, set apart because of the war, and must keep down in fear of death.
So Emily fights: not for the Eternals from the sky; not for the Graverns from the ground; but for the love that her friends share.


33. Invitation

I was sitting in my room, cruising around Facebook watching stupid arguments unfold and watching my photo likes increase rapidly, when a small invite popped up on my screen. I decided to click on it.

End of term party feb 2010!! <3 <3

You were invited to the ‘End of term party feb 2010!! <3 <3’ by Cathi ‘Miss Popular’ Nerona. The event is on the 12th of February 2010 from 7:30 – 11:00 at Inferno under 18s Club in Luton.

Personal Note:

Hey there emily, it’s cathi ;) I know we havent spoken much but id luv u to come to my partay! im sure youd luv these partys. We shud talk more at school too cos u seem really nice and friendly babe :) anyway look at the first comment we made cos it applies to u xxx

Accept? Maybe? Decline?

I stare at my screen in bewilderment. Cathi Nerona has invited me to her party?

Cathi Nerona is one of the Nerona sisters. They are sextuplets, two identical and four un-identical. They are the most popular girls in our year and they’ve given themselves Spice Girl type nicknames. Cathi is ‘Miss Popular’ and gets along with most people, although she has very bitchy tendencies. She’s never really spoken to me, but I never minded. This invitation seems out of the blue. Could it be because of my new form, because I’m Psychic?

I browse through the list of the people that have already accepted the invite. It’s mostly the popular group of people that have been invited. Apart from me, a couple of the chavs and the plastics there is no-one else outside the popular group! The people that are the main inviters of the party are, as I thought, the Neronas. There’s Cathi, of course, Hayli, Jeri, Lilli, Elli Mae and Carri. Hayli, ‘Miss Flirty’, has been with every boy in school just about. She can bend anyone round her little finger. Jeri, ‘Miss Fashion’ I believe is a bit of a daddy’s girl and gets what-ever she asks for, or at least that’s what the latest rumours of the day tell me. The one which probably heard these rumours first, or even started to spread them, is Elli Mae, ‘Miss Gossip’. Somehow she manages to find out anything and everything that happens in school, god knows how! She’s one of the identical twins along with Lilli. She’s the one who I know best, ‘Miss Clever’. She isn’t really that clever, she is just the only one that was in the top band in key stage three – the top 80 students in the year. Despite having academic smarts she has no common sense. The last Nerona sister is Carri, who is known as ‘Miss Chatty’. She is such a loud mouth with her popular friends, but is really nice when she’s not trying to impress others.

The Neronas are the most popular girls in school, so why would they invite me to their party?

I think it’s because I’m Psychic.

A smile emerges on my face.

I press accept on the alert and look at the page. It looks as if each sister has invited 10 people each. I was one of Cathi’s 10? It’s a highly fought after position, even more so than her sisters places. Seeing as Cathi is ‘Miss Popular’ everyone wants to be one of her greatest friends. I see that Tom, Charlie, Cory and Antony have all been invited by different sisters. Lewis is not among them. I notice that it’s an invitation only party, and the Neronas are the only ones allowed to invite.

I remember the personal note Cathi left me so I look at the first comment. It’s written by Hayli.

Hayli ‘Miss Flirty’ Nerona <3 <3 My boi, luv ya xxx

Heyya there guys, congrats on getting ivited 2 this partay! Its gonna be sooo fun and amazing <3 most of you guys already know these rules from the other end of term partays but il go through them 4 the newbies ;) like normal, this is an invite only party at the under 18s club inferno from 7:30 till 11. Also, like every other end of term partay each of us are inviting 10 peeps and the top 2 that we select get to invite 2 more peeps! It’ll be in ur invite message if ur one of them <3 also those people invited by one of the top two get to invite another person! That’ll give us 114 peeps 2 partay with <3 <3 <3

Anyway il see u soon and any questions about the partay just comment <3 luv you guys xxx

I shudder at her writing. I’m a grammar freak and I hate it when people type like she does. I re read the comment Hayli put and my personal message, and suddenly it clicks that I’m one of Cathi’s top two. What? How can I be one of the top people of Miss Populars invitation list? First, before I think about that I ponder another question: who am I going to invite? I have three main friends. I have two invite spaces. What am I going to do?

Just as I begin to fret I notice one of the top two people is Tom and he’s invited Naomi and Lewis. Phew, that means I’m free to invite Alice and Bella! I click the invitation button and scroll down until I find their names. Sorry Tina, Trixie, Cat... but maybe you can get invited by someone else. This is my moment to shine!


Cathi ‘Miss Popular’ Nerona: Heyya there Emily, u invited Bella and Alice right? Good choice babe xxx

Emily Lilac: Hi Cathi! Yeah I have :) anyway, thanks for the invite, why’d you invite me? xxx

Cathi ‘Miss Popular’ Nerona: No probs Em! I’ve wanted too but there has never been enough slots, soz babe :( so once I saw that u were Psychic I thought you’d find it amazing! There are loaads of people from other schools that go and im sure that youll be the only Psychic there and youll get loads of atentuon. Im sure youll get a boyfriend soon! xxx

Emily Lilac: Really? You haven’t seen another Psychic there before? That’ll be really cool if I got a boyfriend there! What are the parties normally like? xxx

Cathi ‘Miss Popular Nerona’: Oh they are sooo much fun, you are going to lloovve it! There’s dancing and bois and everything! U have to be there. xxx

Emily Lilac: Okay, I’m really excited! It sounds amazing! How long have you been going for? xxx

Cathi ‘Miss Popular’ Nerona: Since the beginning of Year 9! It’s been ages since then though, I mean I know that im a gravern now and u know your a psychic, its all so different now :0. xxx

Emily Lilac: I know, this time last year I would have never been invited to one of these! xxx

Cathi ‘Miss Popular’ Nerona: Thats not true, its just I haven’t known u that well! If you had talked to me im sure I would have been really good friends with u! Anyway, I need to go now, talk to you later? xxx

Emily Lilac: Sure, thanks for the invite again! I’ll see you at school tomorrow. xxx

Cathi ‘Miss Popular’ Nerona: Okay Emmy, byeee! Xxx

That was the longest conversation I had ever had with someone in the popular, let alone with one of the Nerona sisters! It was all thanks to me changing into my true form. I was finally getting noticed! But is this really what I want, to go to these ‘popular’ parties? Oh, it’ll be okay. There’s no harm in socialising and I can always say no if they try to force me to do anything.

It’ll be fine, absolutely fine.
