    Summary

    “What’s his name?” he asks gently. 

    Rayla swallows the sob that builds in her throat because, as much as she doesn’t want to talk about it, she knows that she does because the thought of him, of going home to him, is the one thing that’s kept her going these cold and lonely months. She wants to refuse. She wants to keep it in, to hold fast for just a little bit longer, and maybe, if she stalls enough, she won’t have to think about him at all.

    But it’s too late for that, and she knows it. 

    “Callum,” she whispers. “His name’s Callum.”

    [In which Rayla happens upon an inn run by a human family on the Xadian side of the border and finds herself talking a little too much]

    Summary

    Two months have passed since Emperor Belos captured Eda, forcing Luz to make a drastic decision. In return for curing Eda of her curse and letting them leave in peace, she gave Belos the portal to the human realm. Before slipping away, she managed to destroy the portal with some well-hidden glyphs, insuring the Belos would do no harm.

    In these two months, Amity Blight has been slowly losing her mind.

    Her crush on Luz had been growing stronger every day, and it was a miracle that she hadn’t noticed. Maybe she could finally work up the courage to tell her how she felt? How long could she keep her parents from finding out?

    Meanwhile, Eda had growing concerns over how the Blight children were being treated and one very smitten kid to worry about. Hopefully nothing came of it, because she was running out of room.

    Summary

    Rayla woke up in a tiny body in a tiny bed, blinked, looked at her tiny hands, and said “Right.”

    Summary

    It’s a standard injury in gymnastics. The hands and wrists aren’t built to take weight like that, but handstands and backflips and vaults and bars are all part and parcel of it, and pushing your body to its absolute limit is the point. They say you’re not a real athlete until you’ve put yourself out of commission at least once, and it’s not like Runaan’s one to talk, but it’s still concerning, and he doesn’t like the look of the leftover sports tape on Rayla's skin.

    "What happened to your wrists?" he asks.

    “Nothing," says Rayla. "They're fine. I just made Callum strap them before practise on Thursday night just to be safe.”

    Runaan shoots her a sidelong glance. “Callum?”

    Rayla shoots one back. “Yeah,” she says carefully. “He’s a friend."
