Borrowed Wishes A Lux Novel, now read read a new story!
My calendar always filled too quickly in Autumn, Something about the temperature drop makes people want to invite the creepy girl out. People who wouldn’t otherwise talk to me suddenly needed me. I guess it’s nice to be liked no matter the reason.
Dare called me out tonight. My ex girlfriend, the one I thought would be the one. Strange did not begin to cover it, uncomfortable yes it was. She needed me, so I went, besides it was part of my job now.
As a Traveller I watch over magic. I make sure all the right magic stays in the right place. I shouldn’t have been able to get to Hallow Earth but I did. I shouldn’t have gotten my hands on The Necronomicon but I did. So, whoever decides, asked me.
Dare met me on the stoop in front of her building. She looked too skinny and pale under the street light. Her ghost seemed gone, that was odd. He was protective.
“He’s gone.” Aria’s voice was in my head. That’s a problem. As mediums we’re unsafe without our protectors.
“Hey Dare.” I said hugging her close. I pulled into my arms, she shivered. I walked her to her apartment.
Once inside we were safer to talk. I sat next to her on to sofa. She looked so frail compared to the last time I saw her.
“What happened?” I asked reaching for her hand.
“He just vanished, about three weeks ago.” Dare said with a sob.
I wondered if it had anything to do with Nepenthe. Dare was mixed up with pretty shady people.
“It’s not that.” Aria snapped in my head.
“Okay. I get it.” I snapped right back mentally.
“Alright, I know that face.” Dare said.
“Aria says its not Nepenthe related.” I said with smile.
“Duh, I know. I can hear her, and I stopped four months back.” Dare said blushing.
