Nevermore XVII“There are some secrets which do not permit themselves to be told.”
Andre awoke sluggishly the next morning. A strangely thick sense of grogginess hung over him. Was he actually even waking up? Or was still dreaming? What had he been dreaming? He felt around on the bed for his phone to check the time; a little after nine.
“I guess I’m awake…” he mumbled, though he still couldn’t shake the feeling that something was off about the world.
It was the call of his bladder that really brought him around. Reluctantly, he pushed himself up from the mattress and stretched his limbs, bringing to his attention the second oddity of the day. He was still dressed in the clothes he’d been wearing the night before, something he’d normally never do. It had always been too difficult for him to get comfortable enough to sleep in jeans.
“What the hell?”
Nevermore XVI“All suffering originates from craving, from attachment, from desire.”
Seth slumped forward into the little puddle of his own blood. More dripped from the wound on his forehead. His vision was hazy and his skull was throbbing, but at least it was quiet. He could still hear the ambient background noise of the city – cars driving, distance voices, the rustling of the wind – but the alley around him was quiet. Darkness was reaching out for him, and he barely fought against it. The only thing he even tried to do with the last bit of mental strength he had was to lift his head and get one final look at the shadow figure.
It hadn’t moved at all, standing silent and still as a sentinel. He wanted to say something to it, but the words jumbled in his mouth, falling out in a garble of mismatched&
Nevermore XV“The fury of a demon instantly possessed me. I knew myself no longer. My original soul seemed, at once, to take its flight from my body; and a more than fiendish malevolence, gin-nurtured, thrilled every fibre of my frame.”
Seth lashed out at Andre with his claws, but they never reached him.
As if a boulder had been cast into a pond, a cascade of deep green light – nearly black – shot up from the book and fell over Andre, wrapping around him into a perfectly spherical form. It rippled when Seth, moving too fast to stop, crashed into the smooth surface and bounced off of it with a light “oouf” as he fell to the ground.
“The hell is that?” he snarled loudly, his huge eyes bulging even more.

Nevermore XIV“The scariest monsters are the ones that lurk within our souls...”
Normality had been restored between the three friends. Andre wasn’t sure if Hector and Will had entirely forgiven him, but they were at least being amicable again. It made the second half of the school day go by faster, at least. The two of them even walked with him to the Comic Nook, which seemed to help Ernest relax too. Andre had been just as worried about confronting his boss as he’d been about his friends; having the two of them there to ease the tension was a relief.
“You seem better today,” Ernest noted as they closed up the shop that night. “Guess you were just a little burnt out?”
“Yeah, I guess so. I can’t wait to be done with Calculus forever.”
“I hate to break it to you, but there’s still college math to look forward too.”
