Ivy

Ivy has always had uncontrollable anger and she has no idea why until she is sent to a boarding school that is out in the middle of nowhere. Right away she makes friends with bad people or so she thinks. When she befriends a girl after being hospitalized she realizes that there is something bigger that is going on than just her. What will happen when she doesn't choose a side and her friends suddenly turn on each other?

4. Chapter 4

“Welcome back! I hope those shocks didn’t take too much out of you.” Petra says sneaking up behind Ivy.

“Actually I had a question to ask you. Do you know a girl named Kathryn?” Ivy asks. Ivy turns toward Petra so that she can hear her answer. Petra looks scared.

“How do you know that name?” She asks.

“I met her in the hospital. She said she was trying to fight to keep me alive and that was why she all of her scars. She was kind of annoying too. Do you know who she is? Is she one of the “bad guys”?” Ivy asks. She was suddenly very eager to know who this person was. If she scared Petra then she must be pretty bad. Kathryn seems like an odd character among all of these other beautiful people.

“She actually talked to you and she was nice? What did she say?” Petra was up in Ivy’s face now.

“Whoa. Back up. She just told me to heed your advice about friends.” Ivy says. Was it unusual for Kathryn to speak up like this? She didn’t seem uncomfortable talking to Ivy.

“This has never happened before. She has always refused to talk to anyone. It’s a miracle. I still stand by what I said about watching who your friends with. That applies to Kathryn. We don’t know whose team she’s on.” Petra says. Then, her face turns into a glare. “What are you doing here?” She says to Damon who had just appeared behind Ivy.

“I was just wondering what was so interesting that you would be getting up in Ivy’s face. I think I heard something about the princess. She’s so used to not being able to talk that she forgets that she actually has her voice. She is your guardian though so you might want to get used to what her presence feels like.”  Damon says. Then, he points to the corner of the quad and there’s Kathryn sitting with her nose in a book. She looks up and nods at Ivy.

“Where the hell’d she come from? I’ve never seen her.” Petra says.

“She’s not always here and she doesn’t actually show up until she’s met the new Elisabeth. That’s when she actually starts doing her job. I’d like to see her reaction when I do something like this.” Damon says. He brings Ivy’s face even with his and right as their lips are about to meet Kathryn rips Ivy out of his grip. Ivy sees that Kathryn is glaring at Damon. Then, Jasper shows up. What was he doing here?

“What happened?” Jasper asks Ivy. He looks at Kathryn then at Damon then back at Ivy.

“Why the hell would you care?” Ivy asks. Jasper and Kathryn cringe at the use of that word. Kathryn drops Ivy’s arm and starts running in the direction of the front gates. She looks like she had just seen a ghost.

“What the heck was that? She just ran away. Does she always do that?” She asks staring after Kathryn. “I thought you guys said the school was impossible to escape from. She just ran through the front gates like it was nothing.” She looks around at Damon, Petra and Jasper and they all shrug as if they have absolutely no idea what’s going on.

“Well, actually that’s normal for Kathryn. They don’t even try to stop her anymore. That’s why she ends up in the hospital so often. I don’t know why they even keep giving her a new shock collar if it just gets broken every other day or so.” Damon says.

 "Really? Why? What exactly is she running from?" She asks. Damon, Jasper and Petra look at each other and Jasper nods.

"I can tell you about her if you want but it would be best not to talk about it around so many humans. Let's walk." He motions for Ivy to follow and they walk toward a wooded area.

"Shouldn't it be Kathryn's choice if she wants me to know about her?" Ivy asks. They had been walking in silence for a couple of minutes through what seemed to be endless woods but they did soon come to a clearing. They were at a small canyon type structure with a river at the bottom of it.

"She gave me permission to tell you. She was going to tell you herself but then you freaked out at her and she left. What do you want to know about her?" Jasper says. He sits down on a giant rock and motions for Ivy to sit with him. "You are going to want to sit down for this."

"Well, I guess you can start by telling me what she is." She says.

"Well, she's not human but I'm guessing you already knew that much. You've seen her wings right?" She nods. "She has one white and one black and that symbolizes the fact that she is a hybrid. Half-angel and half-demon."

"Angel and demon? Is that even possible? I thought those two races hated each other." Ivy says.

"Yes. That is true that we do hate each other but we have put aside our differences for the time being." He says. She looks at him questioningly. "I'm an angel. In case you were wondering." She relaxes.

"Good. So, where did Kathryn come from originally?" She asks.

"She came from hell. She's here because she needs to protect you. It's her job because of who you are." He says.

"Because of who I am? How am I so special that someone would come all the way from hell to protect me?" She asks.

"She didn't come all the way from hell. She's dead and that's why she's living on the earth. She's been trying to protect you for hundreds of years. She doesn't like people and she hates fighting unless of course she's fighting for you." He says.

"If she were dead wouldn't she just be a ghost?" Ivy asks. Jasper shakes his head.

"You see that's the thing I have never been able to understand about her. She says she died and then ended up living here on earth but she's never explained it in much more detail than that." He says.

"Is there anyone in my new group of friends that isn't an angel or a demon?" Ivy asks. Jasper shakes his head. "Of course not. So I'm the only human. I'm not the only human at this school am I?" She asks. He shakes his head again.

"You are not human." He says. Ivy looks up at him surprised. She chooses to ignore what he said because she is definitely human.

"So, I have one more question. How is she a hybrid if she came from hell? Isn't that impossible?" She says.

"She comes from one of the most powerful families in hell. She's actually one of the strongest demons ever to set foot in hell, on earth, and even in heaven." Damon says. He had appeared out of nowhere.

"Where did you come from?" Jasper asks. Damon smirks.

"Dude, I've been here the whole time." Then, as if he was reading Ivy's mind he says. "It's almost impossible not to know about her. I guess you would have good reason not to remember though. You actually started over unlike your sister." He says. Then, he covers his mouth realizing that he had said too much.

"Sister? Do I have a sister?" Ivy asks Jasper. He shrugs his shoulders and glares at Damon.

"I don't know." He says.
