Chapter 12





I was sitting on the couch talking to Hawk, Charlie, Jackson, and Benny.

"We need to go to Cemparation." Benny said. 

"How can we do that? Queen Dorian said that it is full of guards and minions." I said. The door opened and I saw Mrs.Fritz.

"Phoenix!" I hugged her. They left and I helped her carry the bags in.

"Phoenix where were you. That day you left we were receiving letters saying not to worry about you." She said placing the bags down.

"I was somewhere." There was a screech! I opened the window.The falcon landed on the table.

"Stay calm." I said to Lilly and Mrs.Fritz. I took the paper off its foot. I opened it.

Dear Phoenix,

You don't know me, but I know you. Don't trust anyone except the people you work with. 

Good luck on defeating Queen's sister.

There was no signature. I told the falcon to leave and  closed the window. I looked at Mrs.Fritz and Lilly.

"Would that falcon come often?" Mrs.Fritz questioned. I shrugged.


It was dinner and there was a knock at the door. I opened it and saw another letter. I opened it.

Phoenix here is a book to show you your family.

I know I should've told you. Don't open it until you come back to WinterGreen.

Queen Dorian.


I closed the letter and looked outside. No book. Something hit me in the face.

"Ow." I looked down. A book. I picked it up. Really. Who would throw a book at someone's face? I thought.
