Caught Clueless Chapter NineCaught Clueless Chapter Nine by violetfireflies
One time, in my last year of elementary school, I was walking along the fence of the playground, out in the field where no one else bothered to go. The sound my stick made when I drug it across the chain-link was somehow satisfying, like it was my own song. More spontaneous and natural than the songs we had to sing in music class. I stared at my feet as I tried to walk with one foot directly in front of the other. It was almost summertime; the birds laughed and swooped low in the breeze, pausing in the bushes and then scattering again like a wild swarm of mosquitoes.
When I reached the end of the fence and looked up to turn around, there was a girl. She was small, with long tousled hair that tumbled in waves down to her waist, freckles, large downcast eyes, and full, dark eyelashes. Her tiny fingers wrapped around the links in the fence and rattled with the vibration of my music. I couldn't help but notice that she was barefoot. And on the wrong side of the fence.
I stopped and let the

That night in the hospital waiting room was beginning to be the longest night in my life. Every time I saw a doctor emerge from the white swinging doors, my heart started racing in my chest. I thought something terrible had happened and that's why it was taking so long. I tried to busy myself with counting how many times the nurses walked past and stole a glance at Gill. It was annoying me, but I'm not sure why. It wasn't like I should care.
I sighed, blowing strands of hair away from my face, and glanced at the clock on the wall again. It wasn't as late as I had thought.
As time continued to tick by, I saw several frantic people rush in: a woman clutching a pillow, being led by the hand; an elderly man, panting and wheezing. My anxiety escalated. It was too much. I tried to calm myself by closing my eyes and humming. After a while, the click of the nurses' heels on the floor was the only sound I heard. I kept envisioning the doctor walking out, shaking his head sadly.
I exhaled a shud

After we ate dinner (if over-salty French fries could be considered as such), I had a burst of energy. My excitement was mainly due to the fact that Luke, Chase and Gill were starting to open up to me, and they trusted me. Because of my newfound enthusiasm, however, I managed to get myself separated by an entire two blocks from the group. I guess I wasn't thinking and walking fast. Bad combo.
Suddenly aware of my unprotected state, I glanced around. There was only the stillness of the empty streets and looming, graffiti-laden buildings that were squished up against each other like stalks of corn in a field. I paused and rocked forward on my heels in a momentary survey of the long block ahead. Litter and child's chalk drawings were scattered on the sidewalk and I began to realize we were on the poor side of town. The side of town where huge families of more than ten people crammed into apartment buildings, and children flooded out onto the streets during the day to play with cans and ju

It had been exactly one week since the incident with Gill and Chase. I was doing my best to avoid both of them, Gill especially. I still hadn't thought of an excuse to explain what happened to his coat, and Chase and I just never crossed paths. Kathy was becoming a good friend. We always met at Sonata Tailoring every day to look at the nice clothes and chat. Luna could be a pain, but she was bearable most of the time. Candace hardly ever emerged from her room when other people came over. She was way too shy.
My spring crops were planted and growing, almost ready to harvest. It was quite a chore watering them every day and weeding the field, but I was getting used to it. Amelia proved to be a little troublemaker, a quality that I didn't believe cows were capable of possessing until now. Just the other day, she thought it would be hilarious to follow Luke on his way to the forest. I'm almost positive she has a little crush on him. It took much bribing with fodder to get her to come back.

Placing me gently on my feet, Skye smiled and said, “Alright, let’s see what you’ve got.” He started throwing open every cabinet and drawer in my kitchen. He pulled out seemingly random ingredients in my eyes, but the concentration on his face made it obvious that he knew exactly what he was doing.
When he opened my refrigerator, he grinned widely. “This is wonderful!” he exclaimed, removing the vegetables I had stored from previous seasons; the Harvest Sprites had enchanted them so that they would never spoil. “Absolutely wonderful…” he repeated, eyes raking over the ingredients that he had lined up along my counter. “Are you ready?” he said suddenly, spinning on his heel to face me. He clasped my hands in his, eyes shining with pure elation.
I couldn’t help but smile back at him. “Of course!” Somehow his smile grew even wider, and he grabbed my frying pan.

What’s the big deal anyway? The Harvest King isn’t as noble as the fairytales and history books make him to be. It’s nothing but a title and a position given without any valuable merit.
Other than being an insufferable know it all.
Father turned his head sharply towards me and narrowed his glowing red eyes, “I can hear you, show some respect Rosalie.”
“You show ME some privacy before I give you any respect!” I yelled. I quickly reached up and covered my ears, “And stop reading my mind!”
As if that would help.
Anger briefly shot through my father’s eyes before they started to soften the more he looked at me. He sighed deeply and frowned, “Rose- why can’t you just see that I am trying? I have far busier things to do but I went out of my way to save your life-“
“Oh gee, thanks for taking some time out of your godly errands to do something that
