A Sorceress, chp. 7
I stared over at Katrina during breakfast. She looked as sad as I felt, staring at her hands, not meeting anyone’s gaze. I was miserable, of course, even though I was surrounded by gorgeous girls who wanted to ‘make me feel better,’, which should be any guy’s dream. But they were all shallow and fake, and only cared about seducing with ‘Joshiepoo’. Katrina was the only one I actually connected with, she made me laugh for real for the first time in years. She was real.
I trudged over to Maeva’s room with my few other classmates in my level. Nowadays, we were near masters to the subject, so we just fought with our weapon of choice. In my case, it was a fiery hunter’s dagger, with gems on the handle. I was assigned to duel with Jackie, a girl who learned to fight on her own even before she came to the Academy.
