Chapter one:


 When the intercom buzzed Beth jumped to answer it.

“Hello? She asked

“Hey it’s me, let me in it’s like a million degrees out here!” a familiar voice called back.

Beth grinned as she pressed the buzzer. She knew that voice; it was her best friend Autumn!  She couldn’t believe that in one week Autumn and herself would be going to one of the most prestigious boarding schools in north America, Penfield academy. A few moments later there was a knock at the door.

“Hey Autumn!” Beth cried as she opened the door engulfing Autumn in a hug.

“Hey! Who’s ready to start packing?”

Beth laughed while walking to her room they packed two suite cases and one duffel bag full of Beth’s clothes. Autumn being the most organized of the two helped Beth pack all of her clothes attempting to use the least amount of space she could.

“well it looks like were done, you want to grab an ice cream?”

Beth asked while sitting on top of her butterfly suitcase so that Autumn could close it.

“yeah, that be great!”

Beth hopped off of her suitcase and grabbed her purse and yelled into her dads office,

“dad! I’m going to cold stone with Autumn do you want anything?”

“no! I'm good!”

Her dad called back,

“I’ll be back in an hour or so love you!”

She yelled while walking outside tugging the door shut behind her. Autumn and she waked to cold stone which was conveniently located two blocks from her home in Manhattan. They walked into cold stone got their ice cream and ate it quickly while walking outside and hailing a taxi. They did all of the tourist things that real new Yorkers see as tacky. They even went to the statue of liberty and bought a key chain. Then went over to Autumn’s apartment so that Beth could say goodbye to the woman that acted as Beth’s mother for as long as she had known Autumn. They talked for hours until Beth’s dad called her asking her to come home. She got and fell asleep instantly on the couch. The rest of the week flew by until the day they left for a one hour long plane ride where there would be a car waiting for them under the name Larkin. Then they heard the call for boarding,

“Good afternoon passengers. This is the boarding announcement for flight 89B to Maine we are now inviting passengers to begin boarding at this time. Please have your boarding pass and identification ready.”

“This is it, by dad!”

Beth said while standing up and giving her dad a hug then went to stand in line with Autumn they boarded and found their seats in first class then got situated and waited for the instructions.

“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome onboard Flight 89B with service from new York city to Maine We are currently third in line for take-off and are expected to be in the air in approximately seven minutes time. We ask that you please fasten your seatbelts at this time and secure all baggage underneath your seat or in the overhead compartments. We also ask that your seats and table trays are in the upright position for take-off. Please turn off all personal electronic devices, including laptops and cell phones. Smoking is prohibited for the duration of the flight. Thank you for choosing southwest Airlines. Enjoy your flight.”

Then the in case of emergency ones,

“Ladies and gentlemen, on behalf of the crew I ask that you please direct your attention to the monitors above as we review the emergency procedures. There are six emergency exits on this aircraft. Take a minute to locate the exit closest to you. Note that the nearest exit may be behind you. Count the number of rows to this exit. Should the cabin experience sudden pressure loss, stay calm and listen for instructions from the cabin crew. Oxygen masks will drop down from above your seat. Place the mask over your mouth and nose, like this. Pull the strap to tighten it. If you are traveling with children, make sure that your own mask is on first before helping your children. In the unlikely event of an emergency landing and evacuation, leave your carry-on items behind. Life rafts are located below your seats and emergency lighting will lead you to your closest exit and slide. We ask that you make sure that all carry-on luggage is stowed away safely during the flight. While we wait for takeoff, please take a moment to review the safety data card in the seat pocket in front of you.”

They then clipped on their seatbelts and talked for thirty minutes until the captain made his announcement,

“Good afternoon passengers. This is your captain speaking. First I'd like to welcome everyone on Rightwing Flight 89B. We are currently cruising at an altitude of 33,000 feet at an airspeed of 400 miles per hour. The time is 1:25 pm. The weather looks good and with the tailwind on our side we are expecting to land in Augusta approximately fifteen minutes ahead of schedule. The weather in Augusta is clear and sunny, with a high of 82 degrees for this afternoon. If the weather cooperates we should get a great view of the city as we descend. The cabin crew will be coming around in about twenty minute’s time to offer you a light snack and beverage, and the inflight movie will begin shortly after that. I'll talk to you again before we reach our destination. Until then, sit back, relax and enjoy the rest of the flight.”

And they did, in the hour and a half flight they had the best movie going experience they ever had. They got off the plane and went to the baggage carousel grabbed their bags then were shoved to the entrance and exit doors. When they got pulled to the side by a skinny bald man in a black suite that had dropped his sign that had Larkin written across it.

“are you miss Elizabeth Larkin?”

Beth swallowed hard then answered,

“yes why?”

“David Andersen at your service I am supposed to drive you and miss autumn Keller to the Penfield academy and drop you off at the admissions office. Can I take your bags?”

“Yes thank you very much that would be great.” Beth said while David took both of their suitcases and led them outside to a town car and put their suitcases into the trunk. Then held the door open and they slid inside and he shut the door behind them then went into the driver’s seat and started the car.


“The little town of Bennett cove is three hours away so buckle up and get comfortable.”

Three hours later they arrived at the front gate and were greeted by a slender woman with deep auburn hair, slight curls a slender, sharp nose  her green/grey eyes are alight with excitement.


“Hello I am Professor Anderson I am the head of Sighstrike house leave your suitcases at the door we need to get you two dressed into your uniforms.”


She took them inside and had them dressed then took them to the grand hall to get assigned.
