I am a realist. The personality tests I took in college told me so. Therefore, I did not think twice about taking my phone out of my pocket and pretending to have a conversation with nobody as I walked past the weirdo in the green dragon scale leggings and blue tarp poncho who tried to catch my attention.
There she was. The geek queen. A walking, talking encyclopedia of all things magical. I had to convince her to talk to me. My only problem was that I was GREEN and GROWING SCALES. My friends would have rolled on the floor laughing if they saw me and then dragged me to a hospital when I proved my coloring wasn’t a costume. Thanks, but I’d rather not become a lab rat. Whether it was fate or luck, I ran into Ryn. I had to believe she could help me. I had to.
