Chapter One (Maya):

            One, two, one, and two.  Step, step, step, I told myself, pounding around the track like a pack of wolves were on my heels.  The key is balance and rhythm, not speed or strength. 

            Despite my internal couching, I was still at the middle of the group.  Genesis Crown, my former-nemesis, was closing the gap between us, her black hair bouncing.  Keep going, my brain urged me.  Just don’t trip on-AAAAHHHHH!!!  I stumbled over a rock on the track, sailing head over heels and smashing into the dirt.  Genesis passed me with a smirk, followed by Nimbus, who was carrying a green lap flag.  He’s on his second lap already??!

            Somehow, I managed to get up and continue the next few laps, passing the finish line in eighth place.  Coach raised his eyebrows at me as I stumbled past him towards Nimbus.  Who was in first, as always.

            “Nice run, Maya.  I like that you’re focusing on rhythm and pace, not pure speed,” he grinned.  “You’ll do better next time.  If you keep up your pace and don’t trip over any rocks next time, you might get third or fourth place!”

            “Yeah, right,” I half-grumped, wrapping a damp towel around my neck.  “You can’t get any worse than eighth place.”  Nimbus arched his eyebrows and pointed to the track as Rorry Sońg burst past in ninth place, puffing and panting over to us.

            “Better luck next time, Rorry,” Nimbus smiled, and Rorry returned the grin half-heartedly.  I followed him over to his pack, where he grabbed a Boston Crème donut.

            “You’ve been carrying that in your pack the whole time?” I asked, scrutinizing the treat. 

            “Don’t expect me to eat while I run,” he joked, biting into it.  I raised my eyebrows.

            “I wouldn’t put it past you,” I retorted with a teasing smile.  Rorry laughed, his crystal, cobalt-blue eyes sparkling, and quickly finished off the donut in one fell swoop.  “By the way…we don’t have much homework to do.  Want to come over after school?”  His answer was interrupted by a shriek.  I wheeled around, and stifled a scream of my own.

            Nimbus was standing on the track, staring at two furry tails that had uncurled from his jeans.  They were a dark-amber/golden hue, with black tips.  The track team gathered around him, staring at the tails. 

            “Someone get Coach!” Caspian Firefoxx called. 

            “He’s in the bathroom,” Genesis answered, absently picking at her jacket.  Nimbus was still rooted to the spot, swaying back and forth.  “Nimbus, what-I just don’t get it.  Did these just appear?” 

            “I-I was just thinking about how much I love track-and how I wished that I could take speed to the next level…then I felt this burning pain a-and these appeared,” he shakily answered.  Creepy, I thought.

            “Well maybe we could get you to a doctor…” Rorry started. 

            “No!  They might cut them off, or send me to a lab, or the circus…” Nimbus rushed.  “What if I’m just some experiment?” Rorry put a hand on Nimbus’ shoulder.

            “Calm down.  You can come with us to Maya’s house if you want.  It’s nice and quiet there.  We’ll sit in the garden and talk.” Nimbus nodded slowly.  “We’ll leave a note for the principal.  We don’t have to tell anything.  But we should get you away from Coach quickly.  Which means we leave now.” 

*****

            My mother sat with us in the back garden, a strange expression on her face.  Nimbus attempted to tuck his tails into his pants, but they were too big.  Genesis flopped on her back and whipped out her phone.  Rorry just sat there, a butterfly on his nose.  He crossed his eyes and stared at it, as did I.  Caspian was locked in a debate with himself over some random topic.  All of us were trying to avoid the obvious, except for my mom. 

            “Well, this is nothing new, but I’ll explain everything,” she started, her snowy white curls bouncing on her back as she sat down.  I gaped.  Nothing new??  I thought.  She’s seen human-tails before?!  Or is she just kidding with us?  “We-when I say we, I mean all of you, including me, are not human.  I’ll put it bluntly first.”  Rorry jolted forward in a cross between horror and curiosity, scaring his butterfly away.  My mother continued, “We are called Slydogs, and we have grown up alongside humans, in disguise, for many years.  This explains the tails, Nimbus.  We have the ability to transform into a human to fool others, but…we’re foxes.  Bear with me here.  This is not some creepy joke.  All of us are very special.  We are decscended directly from the great Slydog’s children, Lightningfoot, Blazeear, Ivynose, and Ivorytail.  There are lots of precautions we’ll have to take now, but no one has to cut their tail-or tails-off.  Are you still with me?” 

            Caspian fainted.  Rorry looked like he was going to vomit.  Genesis had stopped texting and was looking at her hands as if she was expecting fur to sprout from her skin.  Nimbus closed his eyes and began to take deep breaths.  As for me?  I wasn’t sure how I felt.  Confused, angry, and scared, to name a few.  I searched my mother’s face, looking for the telltale smile.  Nothing.  Is this true?  I wondered. 

            “P-prove it.  That we’re not ps-psycho mutants,” Genesis stuttered.  “W-why should we believe you?” 

            There was a sudden flash of blinding light.  When it died down, I screamed.  My mom had disappeared.  In her place was a small, lithe fox with bristly, light-grey fur and three, poofy tails.  No-no-no-no-no, this isn’t happening!!  My mind shrieked.  Rorry jumped back, startled.  Nimbus choked.

            “You mean, we can do that?  Transform, I mean,” Rorry asked.  The fox nodded, and transformed back into my mom.

            “Are y-you still my mom?” I asked nervously.  My mother smiled.

            “Of course, Maya!” She hugged me tightly.  “Now you all try it.  Close your eyes, and envision a wish of another life…” 

            I want everything to turn out all right, I thought. Suddenly, there was a flash of light, and my world went spinning.

            Then I blacked out.

Chapter Two (Rorry):

            I opened my eyes and bright spots filled them.  I shut them again and curled my tail around myself.  Wait, I have a tail??  I thought.  Sitting up, I dared open my eyes.  Fuzzy lights spun into my vision.  I was sitting in some sort of bioluminescent cave, with glowing, blue moss clinging to the ceiling.  The others were sitting up, yawning and stretching. 

            “Maya, where are we?” I asked the fox next to me.  She blinked, confused.  Then I understood.  “Sorry, Genesis!  I thought you were Maya.  This could be confusing.” 

            “I’m over here, if you were wondering,” a snow-white fox with lime/cyan highlights and three tails yipped.  What do I look like?  I wondered, and studied my paws.  They were also white, with tiny flecks of crystal blue. 

            Maya’s mother looked around, and gave a small whimper.

            “Children, I know you’re adjusting to your new form, but…RUN!!” she burst, and bounded for the cave exit.  A loud snarl sounded behind me, and I caught a whiff of cat musk.  That’s all I had to know.  We all took off, winding down a mossy path towards a forest below. 

            Huge paws pounded the earth behind me, as the cat closed in.  I risked shooting a glance at our pursuer, and screeched.  The creature, whatever it was, was…hot pink?  It had the build and shape of a panther, with rosy pink fins running down its back, slavering jaws, two whip-like tails, and crazed, blue eyes. 

            “I’ll hold him off!” Maya’s mother suddenly cried.

            “Are you kidding?  That thing’s three times your size!” Caspian puffed, but she paid no heed, stepping in front of Rorry. 

            “Keep going!” she cried.  “I know what I’m doing!”  Maya gave a squeak, but we all dashed forward and away, as the panther-thing snarled and leapt forward.  Be safe. 

            We continued forward for what felt like hours, paws pounding over dirt.  Slowly, the forest changed, and we were standing in front of a huge, stone manor.  Gargoyles snarled down at us from the top of the tall gate.

            “What do we do?” Nimbus asked.  Genesis tentatively pawed at the gate.  It swung open.  “Never mind.  That worked.”  I nervously stepped in, my tail bristling.

            “Let’s be careful,” Maya advised.  “We don’t know who owns this manor.”

            “Don’t worry,” a voice in the shadows of the manor said.  “You don’t want to know.  And you won’t.  Get out.”  Caspian froze as a black fox-wolf stepped out from the shadows.  He was easily the size of the cat that had chased them, even a little bigger.  His beetle black fur blended in with the dark cobblestones of the wall, and except for the streaks of red on his tail, he would be perfectly camouflaged. 

            “I’m sorry, sir,” I apologized, bowing my head and pinning my tail down.  “We were just looking for a place to rest.”

            “Well, that’s not good enough,” he growled.  Suddenly, a yip of protest came from the shadows.  More Slydogs?  I wondered.  Genesis waved her tail impatiently as a young, dark-grey Slydog popped out, just a little younger than us.

            “Inkfur, let them in.  They mean no harm,” she protested to the first one.  Inkfur growled and gave in.

            “Fine.  But I’ll be watching them, Nightstep,” he sighed, striding up the steps.              Maya gave a yip of happiness as the doors opened, and we walked in.

            “Welcome to WhiteHeart Manor,” Inkfur snarled.

Chapter Three (Nimbus):

            How do you navigate around here?  I wondered, emerging out into a corridor I’d already traveled.  This place is huge!  And confusing…

            After a brief tour of the Common with Inkfur, he’d left us to wander, saying something about “preparing the Succession Test”.  Whatever it is, it didn’t sound interesting, so I’d headed off on my own.  Maya stayed behind and talked to an official about sending out a search for her mom. 

            The place was pretty much alive with life, except for the area where I was.  However, I was hopelessly lost.  I can figure this out, I thought.  I think. 

            Stepping around the corner, I looked up at the ceiling and sighed.  This particular section showed a smoky grey Slydog with two tails (like me!) and blazing yellow eyes.  He was bounding forward, leaving a streak of blue-ish lightning and smoke behind him.  Who’s that?  I thought. 

            Suddenly, I heard a sniffle from behind the door right in front of me.  Someone’s crying!  I thought.  Cautiously, I pushed the door open with a squeak and found a rosy pink Slydog with three tails sitting in the middle of the room.  She yelped and stepped back, the gold bracelet on her paw rustling.

            “Oh!  I’m sorry, I didn’t mean—” I started, stepping back.  She fluffed her tails and tried to regain her composure. 

            “It’s alright,” she told me, forcing a smile.  “I’m sure you meant well.  Though I literally didn’t see you coming.”  It took a second for what she said to sink in.

            “You’re blind?” I asked.  She nodded, her glassy eyes traveling around the room, fixating on me.  “Huh.  You don’t mind?” 

            “I’ve gotten used to it,” she said, almost defensively.  “Took me ages, but I memorized the entire layout of WhiteHeart Manor.” 

            “I’ve got to see it to believe it.  I don’t even know where I am right now!” he confessed.  She smiled. 

            “You’re in the Royal Wing, also known as the Forbidden Wing,” she informed me.  I gulped and raised one paw nervously.

            “Oh, um…should I leave?  Is it forbidden?” I asked.  She laughed.

            “No, it’s fine.  Inkfur didn’t tell you about this area?  I should’ve known.  Brother has a habit of not telling things,” she chuckled.  Wait…

            “Inkfur’s your brother?” I gaped.  She nodded, and I realized something.  “Wait, I haven’t even introduced myself.  I’m Nimbus.”  She stepped forward.

            “I’m Princess Roseberry, but call me Rose,” she said.  Princess?  My mind was ready to explode with all the new information.  “I’m…erm…taking care of my mother, Queen Highblood.  She’s sick.” 

            There was an awkward silence as I registered a sleeping figure behind Rose, her fur a golden-brown. 

            “Um…alright.  I should probably be going though.  If your brother finds me here who knows what he’ll do…” I started.  Rose smiled. 

            “That’s fine.  I should probably give Queen her medicine anyway.  Come by tomorrow?” she asked.  “I’ll give directions.”

            “That would be great!” I yipped.  “Bye, Rose!” 

*****

            I made it back to the Common just in time.  Everyone else had arrived, including Inkfur.  He made a point of glaring at me suspiciously.  I rolled my eyes.

            “Alright.  The Succession Test shall begin with Caspian,” he informed us.  We murmured good luck as he stepped forward nervously and followed Inkfur out of the Common. 

            “What is this Succession Test anyway?” I asked.  No one answered.

            “Well,” Maya started.  “I found out that it’s not painful, but it’s not an exam either.  The first part might be painful.  Possibly.”  Rorry sighed and rolled onto his back, twitching. 

            “Oh!  Maya, what did the officials say about your mom?” I asked.  She bounced happily.

            “They said they’d send a search party immediately!  And they did!” She announced.  All of us perked up and yipped happily.

            Suddenly, Inkfur came back into the Common.  Caspian was not with him.

            “I’ve left your friend with the other apprentices.  Come now, Genesis.  Your turn.”

Chapter Four (Genesis):

            “Good luck,” Rorry whispered as I followed Inkfur into a large room, almost as big as the Common.  Elaborate tapestries hung from the walls, and I found Caspian lounging on a couch next to the young Slydog who’d helped us get into the Manor.  She winked at me as we passed.  I gave a quirky smile in return, even though I had forgotten her name.  Oh, well.  I’ll ask later, I told myself.  

            “Alright.  I suppose you don’t know what the Succession Test is?” he asked.  I shook my head.  “The Test is a test.” 

            “Gee, I had no idea,” I snarked.  I could have sworn that he smiled, but when I looked again, it had disappeared. 

            “Well, it’s more than that.  It’s a series of challenges and physical exams to determine your Grand Predecessor.”

            “Grand Pree-dee-what?” I stumbled. 

            “Grand Predecessor.  You have been summoned to the Slydog Realm for a reason.  Your bloodline is almost certainly tied with one of the Great One’s four children, Lightningfoot, Blazeear, Ivynose, and Ivorytail,” Inkfur explained.  “Or the Great One himself.”  He held a paw in the air and moved in a strange, trance-like motion. 

            “Okay…” I started.  “I’m not sure about that, but let’s get this over with!”  Inkfur didn’t open his eyes, and I was starting to wonder if he hadn’t heard me.

            Suddenly, he lunged forward towards me, paws pounding the floor.  I gave a bird-like shriek and bolted for the door.  Caspian sat up, alarmed, and Nightstep gave a yelp of alarm. 

            “Call the guards!!” she yelled, chasing after Inkfur.  “Inkfur’s having a H.S. again!”  An H.S?  I wondered as I vaulted over a potted plant.  My pursuer took the blunter approach and smashed into it, shattering the pot and sending dirt everywhere. 

            After attempting to climb up the walls and failing miserably, I backed into a corner, trapped.  Inkfur slunk forward, and then pounced.

            Suddenly, he stopped with a yelp.  Two, purple Slydog guards stood behind him, pinning one of his tails to the ground.  Inkfur growled and turned, but they were faster, closing in and shepherding him towards another door at the end of the room.  Caspian bounded forward and happily nudged me.

            “You could’ve been hurt!” he exclaimed, then turned to Nightstep.  “What was that?  Do Slydogs here randomly start attempting to hurt each other?  Should I be avoiding everyone?”  Nightstep gave a small, nervous chuckle.

            “No.  He just had an Hostile Spasm, but you’re right.  That was a really bad one,” she commented.  “And before you ask, Hostile Spasms don’t happen to everyone.  Just descendants of the Great One.”  She did the same paw motion that Inkfur had, only this time, she didn’t attack me after. 

            “The Great One being…” I trailed, ignoring her nervous glance at my failure to do the paw-ritual-thing. 

            “Slydog.  The Slydog himself,” she whispered, doing the paw-thing yet again, once on her right paw, and once on her left.  “The very first and original.” 

            There was an awkward silence in the room that could only be filled by my cricket impersonation. 

            “Well…um…Inkfur would have wanted to start the Test, so let’s do that!” Nightstep broke the silence, and led me through a door at the end of the hall. 

END

Chapter Five (Caspian):

            I left Genesis to her testing and decided to help Nightstep clean up.  However, I discovered quickly that it was nearly impossible to get anything done with my clumsy paws.  Nightstep chuckled.

            “Haven’t you learned anything from your walk?” she asked.  I stared at her blankly.  “You can transform back to a human if you want.”  There was a burst of light and a crack.  Suddenly, Nightstep was gone.  In her place was a tanned girl with shocking green eyes, pink bangs, short hair with a beetle black sheen, a black shirt, and jeans.  She looked around my age, but just a little younger (Twelve?  Thirteen?). 

            “Cool!”  I noted, closing my eyes.  There was another bang, and I was suddenly back to normal.  “Um…what’s your human name?  Other than your Slydog name.” 

            “Taka,” she told me.  “Have you earned your Slydog name yet?  That’s part of the Test.  At least the last time I checked.”

            I nodded. 

            “Phoenixfoot.  Makes me sound retro,” I said.  Taka chuckled and carted the shards of the potted plant off.  I began sweeping up the dirt, humming Guns and Ships all the while.  Phoenixfoot, I told myself again.  Sounds nice. 

            Taka came in, a concerned expression on her face. 

            “Caspian, follow me.  Quickly, please,” she said softly.  Confused, I turned into Phoenixfoot and bounded after her as she slipped through the halls.  Eventually, we ended up in the dining hall, with its magnificent, long table and luxurious throne.  Everyone was there (except for Inkfur), including a rosy pink Slydog with three tails, like Inkfur. 

            “The Queen is feeling much better and requests your presence for dinner tonight,” Nightstep told us, holding her head up regally.  “She would also much prefer it if you, as our guests, would turn human for tonight.”  The others gave baffled looks, but I easily turned back. 

            “Cool,” Maya whispered, as if afraid the Queen would hear.  The others closed their eyes and became human, except for the pink Slydog, who remained in Slydog form.  As if she had heard my question, Taka turned to me.

            “The Princess has free will, unless her mother commands it.  So, does the Prince,” she explained.  Who’s the Prince?  I wondered.  Again, Taka turned to me.  “Of course, Prince Inkfur is currently in the dungeon facility, due to his uncourteous Spasm.” 

            Suddenly, human footsteps echoed down the halls.  Taka hissed and shoved herself into a seat.  We frantically dove to do the same, avoiding the three thrones at the end of the table.  The Princess took a seat at one of those, shooting Nimbus with a small smile.  Do they know each other? I wondered, noting Nimbus’s enthusiastic reaction. 

            A tall, regal woman strode into the room.  She wore a golden dress with a satin ribbon around the tiny waist, and a fur collar.  The Queen had her brown hair up in a bun.  Her scarlet lipstick was slightly smeared, but no one dared to point that out.  On her head sat a gold leaf headpiece, a simple band circling her head.  Her eyes seemed warm and friendly enough, but were set in a milky, pinched face.

            “Welcome,” she greeted, taking her seat.  “I am Queen Highblood, but you may call me Queen.  I am a fair and gracious Queen for permitting your entrance into my Manor, aren’t I?”  We shot quick, confused glances at each other before nodding humbly. 

            The room went silent for a minute.  Then Maya, tempted by the food laid out, took a bite of the mashed potatoes.  The room became even more silent.

            “How dare you!” Queen exclaimed, her eyes flashing coldly. “Rule #594 of the Queen’s Law: The Queen always eats first.  Take her away!”  Maya shrieked as Taka miserably stepped forward and led her away.  Rorry shot out of his seat and was pushed down.  I made a small noise in the back of my throat, and the Princess’s eyes widened. 

            “That’s not fair!” Nimbus exclaimed.  Taka slipped back into her seat a moment later, looking even more miserable than before.  Queen glared at Nimbus, then cleared her throat.

            “That’s better,” she said, taking a small bite of the sliced ham.  “Let’s begin.”

END

Chapter Six (Maya):

            “Hey!” I shrieked as Taka stepped forward and led me away.  “I will not stand for this!!  Someone get a lawyeeeeeee….” 

***

            “I’m sorry,” Taka whispered as she locked me into Duel Cell #12.  She looked like she meant it, so I gave a half-smile as she slipped away. 

            A small noise sounded behind me, like a wheeze or a cough.  I ignored it, pressing my face up against the thick bars.  The noise sounded again, and I turned around.  Nothing.  I turned into Swanpelt (I had taken the Test and found out I was Ivorytail’s Descendant) and crept forward. 

            Suddenly, a shape materialized out of the shadows.  Inkfur stepped forward, his eyes coated with crust, fur matted together. 

            “I-Inkfur?  You look like you’ve been here for ages!  It’s only been a few hours,” I exclaimed.  He rubbed the film of pus out of his eyes and made a raspy sound in the back of his throat. 

            “W-wat-ter…” he choked.  I turned a saw a small bucket of water in the corner. 

            I brought it over and noticed Inkfur’s leg was chained to the wall, short enough so that he couldn’t reach the water.  But now he could, and he gulped it down gratefully, practically dunking his muzzle in. 

            “T-thank you,” he rasped, his voice crackling and mending.  “Not a l-lot of people would do that.  I just drank half the water.”  I shrugged and took a quick sip from the water bucket. 

            “You’re in bad shape,” I noted, lying down beside him.

            “The Dungeon does that to you.  It’s a spell,” he told me.  “I also just had a Spasm, so that drained my energy as well.” 

            “Why not become a human?  That would help with your strength,” I asked.  Inkfur shook his head. 

            “I can’t.  I don’t remember how, and honestly, I don’t want to go back to the boy I was,” he sighed.  I cocked my head.

            “Well, what were you back then?” I asked.  He made a snarling sound, and I stepped back, but then he collapsed and I gave him some more water.

            “A prince without a name.  I hated it.  Rose was always the one who got free will, because she was nice and beautiful.  I was nice and handsome too, but not in the way Mother wanted.  I demanded a different kind of princess, not the kind that would bring her Manor to its royal peak.  So now I’m her slave.  She hates me for my Spasms, and hates me because I had a bad effect on Rose.  Mother removed my memory and locked me in the top tower,” he explained, his chest heaving with the effort of talking so much.  I gaped. 

            “Inkfur…” I started.  “I’m so sorry!”  He took a swig of water and shakily laid down. 

            “I don’t even remember my name,” he moaned, trembling.  “It started with an N…”  I patted him on the back with my paw, comforting him. 

            “I’ll help you find a new name,” I said.

            “It doesn’t work like that.  Names are like footprints, they’re part of you.  But at the same time, they’re not footprints, since you can’t leave them behind just like that.”

            “Watch me.  My name is now Bertha!”

            “Heh.  If only.”

            “Oh, okay.  Maya it is.” 

            He sighed.

            “I accept your offer.  Thank you,” Inkfur added.

            Light gently filtered through the bars of the cell, illuminating Inkfur’s frosty grey eyes, brimming with unspoken gratitude.  Heh.  He’s not as bad as I thought.  He’s just a boy trying to get through life like me!  I thought.  Now Maya, let’s get to work.  Aaron?  Jasper?  Rajan? 

            I turned to ask Inkfur a question and found him collapsed on the floor, puffing and straining to transform to a human.  I put my paw on his and attempted to somehow give him my energy.  He flushed furiously and drew his paw away into the shadows., but then inched it back out again.  It was a pale hand, with a milky-white tone, icy-blue veins, and scars crisscrossing over his thumb.  Inkfur shuddered with the effort of staying in human form, and slowly inched out.  

*****

            I studied Inkfur.  It was the third time that month he’d tried to go into human form, and I still hadn’t gotten used to him.  Inkfur’s hair was a frosty-white, with fluffy, small spikes of it pinned forward to his head like porcupine quills.  His eyes were like his Slydog form, electric grey with icy-blue streaks.  His face was chiseled and innocent, though his eyes were deep and puzzling.  Inkfur wore a light-tan dress tunic with a stitched collar, and faded pants with golden lace cuffs.  His feet were bare and laced with blisters and scars.  I turned into human form and put a hand on his shoulder, guiding him.

            “Can’t…keep it up…” he muttered.  Even his voice sounded different, rough yet soft, with a cold-heart accent and a flow like honey.

            There was a crack and Inkfur was back to Slydog form. 

            “That was better,” I praised him, passing him a half-eaten chicken leg from the food trough. 

            Taka came in later and gave us more food and fresh water.  Smiling half-heartedly, we accepted the bread she’d sneaked from the table and gulped down water.  We had decided not to tell her yet about me training Inkfur on transformation.

*****

            I was woken in the middle of the night by footsteps coming down the hall.  I lay awake and pretended to sleep, snuggling up under the threadbare blanket-bag that me and Inkfur took turns sleeping in.  He was stretched out next to me, in human form, fingers just a few inches from mine.  I inched forward and held his hand, relaxing.  Probably just a guard, I thought.  Then the cell door opened and someone entered the cell.  Queen Highblood.  I turned into Swanpelt and sat up.  She looked surprised to see me awake, and more than a little disgusted at my pelt, which had become ragged and thin. 

            “What are you doing?” I hissed, not bothering any title of respect.  She grimaced.

            “What I should have done a while ago,” Queen replied.  “Getting rid of my son.”

Chapter Seven (Rorry):

            It was only a few months in, and we were all facing punishment for “disobeying the Queen’s Law”. 

            I had sneezed in the presence of Queen Highblood.

            Nimbus/Eagleflight had been too sweaty.

            Genesis/Novaeyes accidentally stumbled upon the Queen’s makeup table (she hadn’t done anything to it).

            Caspian/Phoenixfoot had burped at one of the dinners.          

            The Queen was obviously not pleased with us.  She disappeared at night and would randomly pop up and punish us for not following the Queen’s Law.  It was rather silly, but no one dared disobey, for it seemed like Queen Highblood had eyes everywhere.

            Perhaps there are multiple Queens that are all identical, I wondered, watching a butterfly flit across the courtyard.

            Caspian waved a hand in my face, snapping me out of my daydream.

            “Seriously, how can butterflies be so interesting?” he asked.

            “They’re so pretty…” I half-defended them, yawning.  He laughed and leaned back and forth on his toes. 

            “You’re going to have to do better than that, Rorry,” Caspian joked. 

            Novaeyes pattered in and turned into Genesis. 

            “The Queen wants to see you, Rorry,” she told me.  I gulped, turning into Willowear and slipping out the door towards Queen Highblood’s chamber.

***

            “Um…you wanted to see me my Queen?” I asked, bowing.  She stepped forward.

            “Yes.  I am going to teach you how to Electrify,” she said regally.  I pricked my ears, confused, and rose up.  “You are a descendant of Ivynose, correct?”

            “Yes, Your Majesty,” I responded.

            “Electrifying is simply harnessing your power,” she said.  I have powers? I wondered.  “Think of a strong emotion.  This will spark your Electric Energy.”  I began to think about all the peaceful moments I’d spent as Human-Rorry watching the butterflies in Maya’s garden.  A dark light filled my vision until I could barely see. 

            “Good.  Now direct your energy at me,” Queen Highblood ordered.  I focused, and eight, giant, green thorns smashed through the floor and tried to surround her!  I yelped and stepped back, and they disappeared.  “You lost your focus.”

            “I-is that bad?” I asked, staring at the holes in the floor.  She held out one paw and the holes began to mend. 

            “Not very.  Don’t worry about your opponent, Rorry.  If you need to use your powers on them,” she coached.  “They’re probably strong enough to survive.”  I gave a slight smile.  Maybe she isn't all that bad.  

            But then I remembered about Maya and my blood burned cold.
