JAMIE FELT A LITTLE PROUD AT THAT, GIGGLING. ‘ i don’t really keep them, though. they usually only stay for the one night. ’ and sometimes, she minded that. other times, she PREFERRED it. as azure follows the pebble, jamie wondered briefly if whatever FORCEFIELD was around the lake was safe. was it okay that she was sitting so CLOSE to it? any nerves she felt at her proximity to their flag vanished quickly, replaced by something akin to EUPHORIA as kairi turned towards her. ‘ i swear on GODRIC’S BALLS i said that exact same thing to scarlet! ’ wide eyes emphasise her point, grin wide as jamie scooted even closer to kairi. ‘ -i am so EXCITED that you asked me. scarlet never likes it when i tell her she’d look good with MARKUS. ’ erin, on the other hand, was a much better audience. jamie leaned backwards, running her eyes down kairi’s frame, PURSING her lips. ‘ come to think of it, MARKUS might actually suit you, too. you seem like you’d match with someone quite… DARK looking. ’ she clasped her hands together, excited.
’ you know, kairi, we don’t HANG OUT as much as we should. ’
AS BORING AS THEY CAME RIGHT NOW? that could only mean one thing. jamie shifted sideways until she sat on the edge of the DAMP log, her chin still in her palms. her lips lift up into a sideways smile, eyes practically GLINTING with curiosity. ‘ wait, why right now? were you dating someone and it ended badly? ’ what? she was allowed to ask they were FRIENDS. ‘ so those were ONLY rumours? ’ that was a little disappointing, she had to admit. ‘ that ruins my plans of asking you how you managed to swipe a man that… BRUTAL. ’ jamie shrugged, flicking her hair behind her shoulder. ‘ i’m NOT, no. but it isn’t for lack of trying. apparently, it’s not easy to get two brothers to share. ’ she let out a laugh, twirling a strand of brown hair around her finger. ‘ one’s BIGGER than the other. ’ cue a wink.
’ now YOUR turn. who do you have your EYE on around here? ’
JAMIE WATCHED THE FLAG WAVE IN THE WIND. ‘ so we’re just meant to stand here and not even get in on any action? ’ not the fighting part, but jamie would have LOVED to see some sweaty, muscled men out in the BATTLEFIELD. was it bad she was hoping some of the other teams would make it to them? ‘ i’m BORED, kairi. tell me you have some gossip to keep us entertained until fred and james get themselves CAUGHT in fred’s little traps that he left around. ’ jamie rested her chin on her palm, sitting herself down on a nearby log beside the small LAKE in which they placed their red flag. you could just about see it, protruding from the very centre of the water. it was borderline CHEATING, but not quite. they checked.
’ are you SEEING anyone? ’ please say yes. ‘ a BOY, maybe a GIRL? ’
JAMIE KNEW HE WAS CONTEMPLATING SWEARING HER OFF. she could tell by the edge in his voice, the sighs between his words. ‘ i’m extremely comfortable and i do not consent to your non-consenting of this conversation, which will only help you GROW as a person, brother, which is ALL i want for you. ’ she turned to josh, half chewing on his cereal, half trying to read the small print on the cereal box. ‘ you need any love advice too? ’ he only chuckled harder, but jamie noticed the little stir in his seat she probably already knew TOO MUCH about josh and his… GIRLTHINGS.
‘ COME ON, JACK. YOU’RE CUTE, GIRLS LOVE THAT IN GUYS! ’ he had the potential to make the whole school swoon, if only he could be less… JACK. stubbornly, she crossed her arms over her chest and HUFFED, pouty lips overly dramatic as she stared at the azure of his eyes with an intensity that might have gotten him to spill the beans, if he hadn’t twisted away from her in his seat. ‘ what’s wrong with asking if he LIKED it? ’ she even shrugged her arms up, turning to josh for help. all she got was a sideways glance and a slight upward curve of his lips. it was unsurprising he’d be no help, really.
EVENTUALLY, JACK CAVED. AND JAMIE MAY HAVE SQUEALED. no, no, she had definitely squealed. in her defence though, she’d stifled it quickly. the more he blabbered, the more her eyes widened, until her chin was leaning on her closed knuckles; somewhere down the line, josh had done the same. ‘ WOW. you’ve gotta’ be really freaking out to be asking her for help. ’ jamie punched josh’s arm at the remark, but nodded in agreement. ‘ i happen to be VERY good at things like this, actually. but i might need some more information if you want me to help you properly. i mean, you don’t want to EMBARRASS yourself, right? ’
THAT OUGHT TO REEL HIM IN, RIGHT? SHE CLEARED HER THROAT. ‘ first things first, you need to show her that you’re not fazed by it. you’ve got to act like nothing happened, but also let her know that you’re still thinking about it. ’ yes, yes, perfect. ‘ -you should probably lighten things with a JOKE too, when you see her for the first time. ’ that may have been faulty advice, considering WHO she was talking to, but jamie had faith in her brother. ‘ honestly though, i don’t think you should worry about messing it up. did you know she DATED teddy and ROSIER? i mean, he’s really… adventurous. ’
SHE GRINS WIDELY, BEFORE SCOOTING FORWARDS. ‘ BUT SERIOUSLY, JACK, TELL ME. DID YOU LIKE IT? ’
ERIN’S APOLOGY REVERBERATED THROUGH HER WHOLE BODY. her words came in crashing waves that hit jamie suddenly, almost making her stagger backwards. in truth, jamie didn’t think there was EVER a time where erin had hesitated towards them but she seemed to now. she didn’t know if she preferred the unnatural SILENCE or the familiar blabbering, even when the words threaten to take the breath right out of her LUNGS. paralysed by CONFUSION, it was all she could do to watch her BEST FRIEND cry and plead, as a tear-stained scarlet grasped her tightly by her hands.
‘ BUT, I DON’T UNDERSTAND. ’ BROWS FURROW, LIPS TREMBLE. an all-consuming wave of SADNESS washed over her as azure stared back at the familiar irises of erin’s slightly reddened cinnamon eyes. she couldn’t help the way her chin wobbled before she hung her arms rightly around erin’s frame. ‘ you’re such a stupid fucking idiot! ’ the tears in her eyes welled and unleashed with a ruthlessness not even the greatest wizard of all time could fight. ‘ erin burne, i would love you even if you were a plain, large sack of POTATOES, which sometimes we are. ’ but in a LOVING way. besides, she really meant it.
‘ WELL, NOW I KNOW WHY I’VE BEEN SO SAD LATELY. ’ and why she had nightmares that might compare with natalie’sno, that wasn’t true. that girl could really scream. jamie ran her fingers down long strands of erin’s hair comfortingly, feeling a piece of her heart reforming in her chest at the familial sensation it brought her. ‘ there’s nothing wrong with being DIFFERENT, and there’s definitely nothing wrong with being a VAMPIRE either. ’ if she wasn’t so busy crying, jamie might already have been thinking about the ways she could use this piece of information to her advantage… in bed.
TEARFUL AZURE MEETS EMERALD, EXCHANGING A LOOK. jamie had questions upon questions, complaints upon complaints. ‘ how could you think losing you was meant to be the BEST thing for us? erin, you’re meant to be the SMART one. ’ was she? well, it wasn’t jamie, and it DEFINITELY wasn’t scarlet. ‘ and you! ’ she considered pointing a finger at scarlet as she turned towards her, an arm draped over erin’s shoulders. ‘ why didn’t you TELL ME the second you remembered what happened that night? vampire or not, you two aren’t TRUSTED to be alone together when you’re mad! ’
A LESSON THEY HAD ALL LEARNED VERY EARLY ON. ’ WHAT DID YOU SAY TO HER TO MAKE HER CRY? ’
WHERE WAS SCARLET? HAD SHE NOT SEEN? how could she have missed it james and cameron, ripping into each other, their eyes VENOMOUS as blood dotted across their faces, their LIPS. it was all she could do to stare at the scene that unfolded in front of her; she contemplated STEPPING IN, but one glance at cameron and his SWAYING, and jamie had the sudden urge to TELL someone. someone. . . IMPORTANT. she’s half DAZED in a complete STUPOR by the time a clacking of heels echoes throughout the corridor, and the crowd of students disperse into the halls. cursing under her breath, she soon followed suit.
’ HAVE YOU SEEN SCARLET? ’ but all she got was frantic pointing and shakes of the head so, jamie had to do the next best thingfollow the fire. where there was a scarlet, there was HAVOC; something she’d learned to LOVE about her best friend. when azure catches a glimpse of the running HUFFLEPUFFS, she didn’t doubt for a second that’s where she would be. and it suddenly made SENSE too, though she couldn’t quite figure out WHY. there was URGENCY as she ran towards the barrels, tapped the rhythm that had taken her YEARS to master, and even still, jamie still ended up DRENCHED more often than not.
THROUGH THE COMMON ROOM, SECOND DOOR TO THE RIGHT she knew who she’d find there. but jamie didn’t quite expect to see what she saw. scarlet, her arms wrapped around a sobbing ERIN BURNE; she’d never seen scarlet look so DESOLATE before. the eager GRIN on her face dropped, her heart growing heavy in her chest at the sight. ‘ what’s. . . going on? ’ a sense of FAMILIARITY washed over her, interlaced with a sadness that made jamie want to SOB right along with them. frowning, she stepped slowly towards the pair of them. ‘ why are you guys crying? ’ and then everything that is erin burne HITS her.
’ ERIN, WHAT’S HAPPENING? ’ WHY WAS SHE NOTHING MADE SENSE. ‘ TELL ME, WHAT’S WRONG? ’

MORNINGS WERE HER FAVOURITE. the light of the morning sun splayed through her curtains, colouring every surface, every splotch on the walls, with tones of GOLD and ORANGE she rose with the sun whenever she was back at home, often greeted with the smell of her mother’s signature breakfast from downstairs and the sound of her father’s bad jokes. then, there was the added bonus of josh making jack uncomfortable somehow. she dabbed her brush against her face, sliding her fingers down the length of her hair as she gazed back at her reflection, at the FRECKLES that dotted her cheeks.
BY NOW, IT WAS TRADITION FOR HER TO BE LATE. so, jamie took her time twirling her hair into perfection despite knowing she’d likely be bundling it up into a bun later. she probably would have taken even longer, if she hadn’t heard what she’d heard if JACK MCLAGGEN, her weirdest brother, hadn’t uttered that one word. KISSED? who was kissed?! jamie tripped over her chair as she LUNGED for the door, knocking over her BOOKS as she stumbled all the way down the stairs and into the KITCHEN. by the time she’d reached them, eyes wide eyed and SHOCKED, she was breathless.
‘ WHO KISSED NATALIE? YOU KISSED NATALIE? ’ wasn’t her name NICOLE? azure staring intently at jack, she pulled her chair CLOSER to him, grazing it LOUDLY against the floor. ‘ how come you didn’t TELL ME? ’ she’d be offended, if she wasn’t so deliriously HAPPY to know there was someone out there who could handle jack’s… weirdness. jamie barely notices the food spread across the table, resting her chin against her knuckles instead as if she were about to get told a BEDTIME story. ‘ how was it? did you LIKE it? ’ was it his FIRST? ‘ when was this?! i mean… the last thing that happened was that ATTACK. ’
A SUDDEN GASP, HER LIPS TWITCHING INTO A GRIN. ‘ JACK, DID YOU KISS NATALIE DURING THE ATTACK? ’
