Age of Red (Book 1)

I was pacing in the little space I had of my dorm room.

I had.... what been here for weeks and hadn't made any improvements with freeing them.

My mind was was so caught up with myself. I was too busy kissing a boy to even think of them.

I brought my fingers to my lips thinking how they felt against Liam' s.

You're doing it again.


Thinking about Liam over your sisters, you must really like him.

I thought about it. The first time I saw Liam I had felt a small connection. Since I came to the school I knew the connection was growing. I didn't think I wanted to stop it.

I would have to figure that out later. Right now my sisters were my priority.

Hey voice, any idea how I could do that?

Sorry Vera, you have to figure this out on your own.

I groaned. I thought you would be helpful.

How could I help, I'm just a voice in your head. I could be made up. A figment of your imagination. Also you are the one surrounded by supernatural teens.

The voice was right. There was plenty of help here. I just had to find the right one.

Just then the door opened, Alice walked through with a small smile on her face.

As soon as she saw me, she ran toward me her smile brightening. "Did I just see you get out of a car with Liam?"

I was surprised, "You saw that."

She nodded happily, "Everyone did, you guys parked right in front of the window of the cafeteria."


"Where did you guys go? On a date? Ooh, did he take you the movies. I love the movies!"

Unfortunately I didn't have time to answer these questions. One of the reasons being that I didn't know what a movie was. It sounded complicated. I probably needed to ask Ms.S about it.

I grabbed Alice's shoulders stopping her ramblin. "Alice, you've been here for a while now right?" She nodded her head yes.

That was good.

I continued, "Do you know any thing about magical prisons? Anything at all?

She thought about it for a second then shook her head no. My hope deflated, I let go of her shoulders.

"But the library might have something on them." My hope was reborn.

I looked in her eyes, "Are you sure?

"Yeah, our library has tons of info. Why?"

I shook my head, "It's just really important."

"Okay. I can take you there tomorrow." I nodded, thinking of the information I was going to get.

I looked out the window it was getting late. Suddenly I felt very tired. "I'm gonna use the bathroom," I told Alice.

She nodded and sat on her bed reading her book.

I got some clothes that Ms.S had dropped off for me. This time it was an over sized gray shirt and black shorts.

I went to the bathroom and showered. I put my clothes on, got out and walked to my bed. I got under the blanket.

I looked at Alice, she was still reading her book with a small lamp open. I didn't mind the light.

I lay my head on my pillow and instantly fell asleep.


"So what's it like having classes with the Ms.S," Tanya asked me.

It was breakfast time and I was sitting with Alice and her friends for the first time.

They were nice and friendly to me, introducing themselves. There was Tanya the fairy, along with Henry, and Fiona. Katy, Max, Luke, and Penny were witches. Or wizards. They are all about there titles.

We all sat at a rectangular table eating breakfast. It was actually relaxing to be with other people. This morning I had found a jean jacket with black boots, a black shirt and some black shorts.

"It's actually really nice. Ms.S explains everything to me and helps me whenever I need it," I answered Tanya.

She looks surprised, "Really. I thought it would be no fun to be withbthe principal for most of the day." She chuckled, "I need to change my courses."

I smiled at her. Earlier this morning I had another class with Ms.S. She told about things in the outside world. How humans had no idea we existed. That they thought This was a school for troubled rich kids. This time I asked her about movies. She told me they were just people pretending on a big screen. I didn't really get, but she promised me she would take me one day.

I took a bite of my pancake. It was my first time trying then. I didn't something know something so thin and soft could taste so good.

We all finished our breakfast, said goodbye and went our separate ways. Alice and I went back to our room.

I went her bed and sat down grabbing the book she was always reading.

"Is this a good book," I asked her.

She nodded, "It is. I've already read it three times."

I was confused, why would someone read a book more than once.

Alice was moving around. Today she was wearing a blue jean drew that went good with her red hair.

It looked she was getting ready to leave. "Where are you going?"

She sighed, "Unlike you I still have classes to take." She went to the door, "When I get back we can go get those books you want." She smiled and left.

I had nothing to do, so I decided to go the garden and read the book Alice liked so much.

When I got there I sat at a picnic table, which instantly made me think of Liam. I wonder what he was doing.

I shook my head and opened the book. The first few chapters were entrancing that I actually couldn't put the book down. I was so into it that I didn't notice the girl standing in front of me.
