    The Secret of Castle Hill

    Chapter Twenty ~

    Red eyes glared at me from the darkness. I screamed, reaching for my knife.
    But it wasn't there.
    Panicing, I turned and ran as the shrieking began behind me.
    I woke up with a start.
    Pale sunlight gleamed from a window. The bedroom was quiet. Most of the girls were asleep.
    I got to my feet, and headed for the bathrooms. After a quick shower, I changed back into my leather armor, and slung my bow and quiver over my shouder. I sheathed my knife, then headed out of the room.
    The main room was empty. Or so I thought.
    Lazer and Dinara sat beside each other in the far end of the room, their backs to me. I froze.
    They didn't hear me. They just sat there, hand in hand.
    I wished I had someone like that.
    Someone who'd just... sit there, and we wouldn't have to say anything, because we knew what each other was thinking.
    I jerked myself out of my thoughts.
    And who could that person be?
    The boy's door suddenly swung open, and out he came.
    Lazer and Dinara jumped, and sprang apart. "H-hello." Dinara stammered.
    I smiled weakly. "Hi."
    Jalock walked over to me.
    I shivered as our eyes met.
    I could feel Dinara and Lazer's eyes on us, but I didn't care.
    I looked away.
    "So... what happened last night?" I offered.
    "Not much." Jalock replied, dropping his gaze.
    "Did you get rid of her?"
    "Oh, yah, I got rid of her."
    The last thing I needed was for Elbeth to turn up and ruin my moment. But guess what?
    Elbeth emerged from the bedroom, and ran over.
    "Hi Jalock." She smiled, batting her eyelashes.
    We all turned around.
    Tizania was in the doorway. "Well, since you guys are all up, we can head for the training room."
    "Okay." Dinara said, and she and Lazer headed after her.
    "Let's go." I turned to Jalock, ignoring Elbeth.
    Suddenly from the shadows appeared Logas, and I jumped. He just seems to have a knack for appearing out of no where.
    "Er, hi Logas." I said.
    He fell into step beside me as we set out after Tizania.
    "Think today's training will be like yesterday?" Dinara voiced what everyone had been thinking.
    I shrugged. "I don't know."
    Tiz looked back. "No, it's not another trial or anything."
    "What are we doing then?" Lazer said.
    "Just practice." She replied.
    I wonder what "just practice" means in a place like this.
    Tiz stopped at a large wooden door, similar to all the other doors at Castle Hill.
    She opened it, and shoved us inside.
    "Have fun!" Tizania called, then shut the door.
    "Hello, hello!" A cheery voice called, and from behind us came a tall, round-faced man with bright blue eyes.
    "I'm Mr. Moonface." He said, shaking our hands. "This is our practice room! So, get out your weapons everyone, and we'll start practicing!"
    "On what?" Jalock asked, drawing his sword.
    With a wave of his hand, several misty figures appeared.
    "On them!" Mr. Moonface said. "They aren't real, of course, and won't hurt you, but it'll be like fighting a live opponent. So, choose one and start. If you don't want to do thay, you can practice your archery of knife-throwing over there."
    The misty figures seemed a bit strange, like a half-image of someone. They swirled around, waiting.
    I unsheathed my knife, and stepped forward.

    She kicked a rock in Blackys direction. "Not so hard Swirly! That nearly took my eye out." Swirly shook her head. Blacky always over-reacted to everything. He kicked it back and they played kick-the-rock al morning. Then Blacky went inside to eat. Swirly made her dirt underneath a bush and played kick-the-rock with herself while she waited. Then she kicked it to hard and it rolled part way into the frest. She ran after it and picked it up. Then she realized that she was in the foredt. She looked around in awe at all the trees and plants. It was so green and fresh she forgot about everything. Then she heard a loud hiss and saw a black tom with bright green eyes running at her! His claws were unsheathed and his fur fluffed out but Swirly could smell a faint whiff of fear scent. He galloped toward her and jumped at her but she stepped to the side and he crashed to the ground with an undignified. "Ummff!" Sworly ran back to her house but paused at the door to see what the cat would do. He ran adter her but stopped at the border of the twolegs nest then ran off. She wondered what his name qas.
