The days trailed by in a haze... Before I knew it, it was Saturday... Finally I could venture the castle as I pleased.
I had a breakfast of bacon and eggs before grabbing a book. I intended to go outside but I was confronted by Tahlia in front of the portrait hole.
"Um, Grace, can we talk?" She asked in a awkward-polite kind of tone.
"S-Sure" I replied, not knowing what else to say. We went back up into the dormitory and she sat down on my bed. My bed. She was staring at me. Curiously. Like I was a rat she had finally made turn yellow.

"Grace! Grace! Come here!" I heard James' voice call me from the top of the stone steps.
"What now? Can't I just go outside for once!"
"Sorry... This is important, if I don't tell you now I never will"
