Daughter of Magic

8. Chapter 8

I told Lou and Blair about what had happened. They seemed to think that he did like me, though we should talk to Piper or Jason - who was his other friend - and figure out more. Well, I should. They weren't going to accompany me. 

Now I was sitting in the middle of the grass, dreading going over to the Aphrodite cabin. But I had to or else I would never know what is up with Leo. 

So I pulled myself up off the grass, took a deep breath and walked over to the pink dollhouse that stood out more then any of the other cabins. 

It took a moment before anyone answered the door. Thank the gods it wasn't Drew. 

"Hi," I said. "Can I talk to Piper?" 

"Sure, I'll go get her," the girl turned and walked inside for a moment, leaving me standing on the stairs awkwardly. 

I guess she was talking with someone already maybe? Because it took several moments before she appeared in the doorway. 

"Oh, hey. You're Allanondra, right?" 

"Alla, please." I told her. 

"Right, of course. What can I help you with?" 

"I have a few questions about... Leo." 

"Oh... Alright." She stepped forward and closed the door. "Let's talk someplace else." 

She lead me away from everyone else and towards the strawberry fields where we walked through the berries and talked. 

"So, what is it about him you want to know?" 

I closed my eyes and took a breath, looking up at her when I felt confident. "I want to know if he, maybe, likes me a bit more than just a girl he wants to know better or be best friends with. Does he tell you that sort of thing?" 

"Occasionally. Though he talks to Jason more than me. You might be better off asking him." She picked a ripe strawberry and started picking off the leaves. "Why?" She asked as she bit the strawberry.

"Well... It's kind of complicated..." 

"Try me." 

"Alright..." So I launched into the story, the date, the kiss, the confrontation, the hand-holding thing and what Scott had said. "What do you think?" 

"I think, it's quite possible he likes you more than you think. I'll talk to Jason, get him to talk to Leo about it then I'll get back to you. Does that sound good?" 

"It sounds perfect. And, thanks for helping me, by the way." I told her as I started backing away. "I would be completely lost without it." 

"No problem... He told me you could manipulate the mist, so maybe you could find out yourself?" 

"Nah, I think this way'll be easier. That kind of magic is exhausting." 

"Alright, well, I'll talk to you soon." 

"Thanks again!" I called as I ran off.
