Chapter Fifteen (Genesis):
“I still don’t understand,” Rose said. “You’re saying…the Great One is my brother?!” Nimbus nodded grimly.
We were all back in the jail cell. Rose (who had been trapped in the Queen’s mind) found Maya and Kodah, and explained what had happened. She had tried to carry Nimbus, but he’d been too heavy. Kodah, using his Slydog powers, had called us all back to the cell.
“I don’t remember having this memory,” Kodah spoke up quietly from the corner. “And the way the Great One appeared, it almost sounds like I am Slydog.” He made the hand gesture thing, and for some reason, Rorry winced and scuttled as far away from Kodah as possible. He’s been acting really strange since we got back, I noted.
“Well, look on the bright side!” Maya perked up, leaning into him. “We have some clue as to what’s going on. It sounds to me like the Great One isn’t so great, considering he cheated and hid in her mind. Good thing we didn’t run into him.” Kodah nodded. She had a point. But still…
Fiddling with a stray lock of hair that had escaped from my bun, I bit my lip. This is so boring…
“—Genesis?” Ruby ended. I started and looked around. Think of something!
“Uh…I agree with Ruby,” I put in, rolling my eyes as if it was a somewhat silly question. The others didn’t buy it.
“The question was if we should go back into the Queen’s mind and try to find out more,” Caspian provided.
“No,” I decided, almost immediately. The others looked at me curiously. “I don’t know why, but I have a bad feeling about this. Like we’re meddling in matters too big for ourselves.”
And to be honest, I meant it. Part of me was all macho and This is so cool, I’m a fantasy evil-queen fighter, but the other part thought, I just want to go home and do DCI and drink some Snapple on the couch with my mom like I always do, and be normal!
