At Whateley AcademyEdit
Gwen has a dream about the Artificer in the Court of the West. She does some experimentation with storing spells in her fairies, and then has to repulse an advance from Lina. This causes a lot of drama and angst.
Natalie Nichole Mahren arrives at Whateley with blood in her eye and an intent to retrieve her daughter, who was taken from her by her husband dropping her off at Child Protective Services in Alaska. She dricks out and tries to fight Jerry Mendez. Security gets her under control and puts her in a holding cell.
Security Chief Delarose appraises the headmistress of their latest problem. They pull Miranda Nichole Mahren out of class so she can see her mother. Then Elizabeth Carson explains what the school is about and shows Natalie Range 4, which was her son’s responsibility.
At lunch, Amy is discussing her latest devise with Sapphire and Alyss, a golden disk that is a battery for the energizer power she uses to charge her devises. As they leave the table, Sapphire runs into Exquisite, who behaves contemptuously toward them. Alyss mentions that she's seen her hanging around with Starbright, who has been hassling her, but has eased off lately because of the retaliation.
After classes, Alyss is going through a stack of books at Exemplar speed. She talks a bit with Dana and Jinx about Parents Day, which is tomorrow. Then she heads to Hawthorn cottage to be with Amy. On the way, Exquisite jolts her with a disabling pain effect, and says that "Starbright says hi" before walking away.
Outcast Corner is having dinner together when Elyzia Grimes appears, lightly singed, and proceeds to beat Caitlin over the head with her umbrella for giving the three little pests adamant essence tools. Then Caitlin sees the woman with Team Awesome!, and leaves with a mental despairing wail of pain.
While Gene Nalley is preparing for the trip up to Whateley for Parents’ Day, he finds a pair of work boots in the back of the closet where his wife had relocated them. He finds a letter from his daughter, Lanie, that she’d put in there so he’d discover it just after she left for school.
