Delilah knew about the mask? A smarter girl would have made note of that, but Eris’s heart was thundering in her chest. Loudly enough that she could hardly focus on the moment on hand. Adam, Adam, oh god what had she done to Adam? Eris Fawley was a girl of unwavering loyalty and turning away from Adam made her feel guilty, especially after he had taken her in over the holidays and had came to her home, with no reason even to do so. Hands starting to shake at her sides, which was a long forgotten habit Eris hadn’t picked up since the first few meetings with her friends early last year.
Was she one for vengeance? Eris had never thought it over, but her stubbornness had lead to this terrifying moment in front of her. The two paths to take were murky and faded with fog, but the subconscious of Eris’s mind knew the right thing to do would be to stop this plan. The people in front of her did not understand, and Eris had been worried to not have friends, but there was Adam. Adam trying to stop her, Adam trying to plead with her.
Her friend through so many struggles. Was she willing to fight with him just over a- oh god. Kaegen was here. How must Adam feel? The boy who attacked Adam last year, he was here and looked insane. Slowly, etching backwards into the wall, the words of Aurelia came through her head.
“I’ll...I’ll get him out of the school and make sure he gets the punishment he deserves.” Eris blinked, as Adam left and the twin pathways of choices became even less blurry. She couldn’t fight Ben with these people. Not with Kaegen, who was insane and willing to KILL people. Not with Aurelia, who spread gossip and rumors like a fly. Especially not with Elena, whose very existence was reminding Eris of a pained existence, easily forgotten but far harder to admit to.
Folding her arms across her chest, wand sticking out of the right pocket at a tilt, Eris watched Elena step forward with a knife in her hand. Sharply, Eris took another step back, staring at the knife with distaste. When she turned to see Adam’s blonde hair leaving the room, the child realized that she was in over her head for real.
A knife was for bad guys. Bad guys stabbed people and Eris didn’t want to be a bad guy. No, a superhero wouldn’t have gone to a group full of people who wanted to stab people and kill them! She just wanted to talk to Ben, and maybe she would have to do it alone. These people seemed too bloodthirsty, and Adam was gone. If Adam left, that was never a good sign.
Shoving the knife away, Eris felt a bit breathless, her nativity conflicting with the conversation she could hardly understand. “No thank you, I don’t want to kill him. I think I’m going to go find him, and uh ask him what’s up. I will tell you all when I find out what he really is.”
With that, she hurried out of the room.
Eris Fawley has left the thread.
