SEBASTIAN - Rejoining Our Pack


“Calisto!” He skid into the Dining Hall.

She stood up. Purple-blue eyes huge.

“Do you feel it?” Bast murmured. Touching her elbow. “I haven’t felt power like that in a long time.”

Gasping, she covered her mouth. Nodding as tears leapt into her eyes. She rushed out on the step.

He was on her heels.

The pulses of power were like the feeling of thunder rumbling but without the sound.
