On the run

Quercia has to move to Australia after her dad is made redundant. She thinks her life is really plain until she meets Fuoco and Sirena. This suddenly throws her into a time of secrecy and magic...

Includes an ending chapter about the history of Paganism and the meaning of some keywords.


3. Midnight Party

I shuffled home, glum after a looong detention. The worst part is, it was'nt my fault. Okay, it was but I couldn't help it. I got busted in the toilets after the bell had gone and I was just talking about a party. Organised by Fuoco and I was invited! Along with Sirena... oh well, it can't be that bad and she has got to stop staring at me when her eyes start to hurt.

I felt a gaze burning into me and turned round but see nobody...


I shriek and turn ready to slap whoever it is, but my hand is caught in a warm but firm grip.

" That's not very nice." Fuoco. He gives me that grin again but this time I don't buckle. It just ignites my rage even more.

" What the hell!" I shout and curse for a while before I melt into embarressment after realising how stupid I must sound. " I'm sorry, I don't usually get guys jumping out at me in the near dark."

"Ah..oops..um, I just wanted to check if you're coming to the party this weekend."

Oh lord!

"Yeah, my parents are out for the  weekend so i'm free to do what I like." I grin and try to think what to wear.

"Good, see ya then!" He started to leave.

"Wait!" What did I want to say? " What time is it?" Stupid girl, you should have said something better than that.
