Chapter 3



I'd been spending a lot of time with Tyler. He was so sweet and funny. I think I might really like him. After the night in the bar I hadn't really seen much of Reid, but I'd seen Caleb, Pogue, Sarah and Kate a few times though.

If I were paranoid I'd say that Reid was avoiding me. Not that I care. It's just that he's Tyler's best friend. I want him to like me. If Reid likes me then Tyler will really be interested. If a guy's friends like you then the guy knows you're cool. At least that's what I read in Cosmo… maybe not the most reliable source.

I crashed onto my bed after coming back from my jog. It was six in the morning, on a Saturday. I would be sleeping like every other person on campus, but today was the day I was telling the Covenant about who and what I was. To say I was stressed was a huge understatement.

I had gotten the text last night from my circle's leader, Justine. She said I needed to do it now. Like a week was enough time to gain someone's trust? Did she really expect Tyler, or any of them for that matter, to be okay with the binding spell?

I grabbed my phone and sent Tyler a message telling him to text me back as soon as he woke up.

God, this was going to be a long day.




"Nope, no. I am not waking up." A pillow hit me in the face. I hate how much Tyler's aim has improved since we became roomates.

"Reid! Get up man. Hazel and the guys are coming over in half an hour."

At that my eyes shot open. I pushed the pillow off my head a sat up. "Why?"

"She said she had something she wanted to talk about." Tyler replied with a shrug.

"With all of us?"

"Yep. She said it was important, so that means you can't skip out."

"Whatever." I got out of bed and walked into the bathroom. When I came back out I slipped on a pair of sweatpants and a long sleeved shirt.

"Do you know what she wants to talk about?" I asked.

"Not sure man."

Just then I heard a knock on the door. "I thought you said she was going to be here in thirty. It's only been about fifteen minutes."

"Jeez, calm down Reid. It's probably just the guys." Tyler got up and opened the door.

What the hell was wrong with me? Why was I freaking out about a girl? I was so lost in thought I barely said hi to the guys when they walked in.

I had to get my shit together before Hazel came.


I walked up to Tyler and Reid's door, taking a deep breath before I knocked.

Tyler opened the door up with a smile, "Hey come on in, everyone's here."

"What do you need to tell us Hazel?" Caleb took the lead, which I secretly appreciated, getting straight to the point.

I looked around and bit my lip nervously. How the hell am I going to explain this?

I'm sorry for the long wait. I just edited these chapters and chapter 4 is being finished up and written. Over the summer I will have loads of time on my hands so I'll be able to update more.
