Dhara had kept her distance so far, though being in the same classes made it difficult. She didn't try to approach me or anything, but that was probably because I hadn’t been alone since the attempted kidnapping. The guys updated their dean about it, sticking to their story about my powers not showing yet. Security floated around every time we went out now, but nothing had come to a head. It was like a huge storm was building, the clouds rolling in and rain starting to fall, and you're just waiting for everything to ramp up in intensity. That's how it felt around here, but everyone seemed content to ignore the tension.

"Eat," Aeson said softly, pushing my plate closer to me. I frowned down at the eggs and bacon on my plate, no longer hungry as my mind kept reminding me of all the impending changes.

"Do you want something else?" Van asked, looking down at my plate with a grimace. "They have french toast today."

"No, I'm not hungry. I just need a minute," I said, pushing it away and walking out of the cafeteria. Nobody followed me this time, apparently picking up on the fact that I wanted to be alone. Plus, Evander could hear me yell and run out at lightning speed if he needed to. Vampire senses are handy.

I stepped out onto the second floor balcony, needing to feel the morning breeze. The salty air tickled my nose as I inhaled, the spring warmth finally starting to come around. Yes! I am so sick of ice and snow. The Obsidian Sea stretched out below me, the islands in the distance so small, I could barely make them out.

"Nice view," Dhara's voice called out as the door clicked behind her. "I've been trying to get a moment alone with you, but clearly they're possessive. Supernaturals, am I right?" I snorted at her cheeky humor, hating that I liked her despite knowing why she was here.

"What do you want?" I asked bluntly, not willing to play this whole small talk game with her.

"I just wanted you to know that you have options. I was sent here to find a supernatural, but it seems they found you first. Which is not surprising. I know this is their area, but I don't think you belong here. I can't tell what you are though, so maybe that's why they haven't taken you off to their school already," she said thoughtfully, half reasoning it out with herself.

"And what options are those? To go live in your oppressive territory that values purity?" I asked, raising my eyebrow as I turned to face her, bracing my back on the high railing.

"Is purity so bad? Sure, the council says that it's a genetic toss up if the species are mixed, but with purity there's no guessing game. The Knights can help you find out what you are," she said, and I could tell easily that she believed every word she said.

"And if I'm mixed?" I asked pointedly, realization finally dawning in her eyes.
