THE PROPHECY OF ARCADIA (EXCERPT)
He rolled his eyes. “The only thing I’m keeping from you is how utterly obnoxious I think you are. Oops! I guess the cat is out of the bag now,” he replied sarcastically.
We had all returned to La Maison Falafel after school, including Lucas. We needed to discuss the big fight, since it must have been another incident fueled by the suddenly ubiquitous drug. Whoever was responsible for its distribution had become bolder, and I didn’t doubt it was related to Alexia and Ethan’s reconciliation.
Melanie still didn’t trust Lucas completely, even though he had come to her rescue at the nightclub. Knowing her, she probably resented him for that, as well. It didn’t help his case that he hadn’t been able to catch the guy who had been selling Ayahuasca at the club.
Sean stepped between them before things escalated. “Calling each other names won’t help our case.” Melanie remained where she was, but Lucas took a few steps back. He obviously had more sense than my dear sister.
“What will happen to Taylor and Anthony now? Will they still be possessed once the drug leaves their systems?” Mia asked.
“It depends on how frequently they’ve been taking the drug. By the way, they’re calling it ‘the Big A’ now,” Lucas replied.
“Oh, now you mention it. If I had known, I wouldn’t have bothered learning how to pronounce its original name. It took me forever to get it right,” Sean joked, in an attempt to lower the level of tension in the room.
“Can’t you or Durgin use your compulsion mojo to find out from those guys who sold them the drug?” Melanie asked with contempt.
“There’s only one person is this room who can perform that kind of invasion, and it’s not me.” Lucas glanced in my direction.
I stiffened immediately. “No way! Don’t even think about it. Doing it to Gary was bad enough, and he almost couldn’t handle it. I would probably turn an Earthling’s brain into mush if I tried.”
Lucas acquiesced. “There is that. I guess we’ll have to rely on more traditional means.” He turned toward Melanie with an ironic smile. “How about you, Mel? I just hear you complain and complain, but so far I haven’t seen you use your amazing powers to help at all. If you could use your abilities to spy on me, for sure you can follow our boys Taylor and Anthony once they leave the hospital.”
Melanie’s face turned red with anger, and her hands clenched into fists by her side. “How did you…” She paused, trying to compose herself. “Don’t call me Mel!”
