My Guardian Rose
Chapter 166: For the First Time in Forever
"Aren't ya gonna let 'em out, Rosie?" Riley asked as I stared at the Detention Hall. I laughed aloud, startling a few nearby. "No, I'll let 'em sweat it out a bit, 'fore I do."
"They're lucky she didn't kill them..." Ken breathed and I grinned. "Tha', they are, Teddy." It had already been two days since I had let the others out of the Detention Hall, and I knew that Red and Vhanoss would eventually crack. Maybe they were sorry, maybe they weren't. If they weren't, they'd be sorry soon. "Are you sure...?" Lance asked quietly. He had begun to stick around me a lot, seeing me as a shield from all the nasty glares. He had become very timid, jumping at every little thing, nothing like how he used to be. "Yeah, trust me. They'll break. If they don't break, I'll break 'em." I chuckled. "Don't literally break them." She can if she wants!
Thorn said excitedly and I rolled my eyes. You two give me such a headache. But you love us!
Thorn giggled and I huffed. Don't use my own line against me. I still don't know how I feel about you.
I thought with a grunt. Hurtful. I like you! Sure you do. I do! I really do! You're a funny host!
I chuckled softly. Thanks? I guess. "Even I don't know how to respond to that." I swear, all I need sometimes for a full conversation is myself.
Both of them laughed as I grinned. "You're doing it, again." Riley muttered.
"Irritating, ain't they?" Emma laughed and I chuckled. "Yeah, you would know, wouldn't ya, Mania?" She nodded eagerly. "Yup! I named mine Baxter. He's nice." Everyone but Nanna and I stared at her strangely. "Damn, it's good t' have you back, Em." Nanna giggled, nudging her shoulder. Emma let out a light laugh. "I think I could get used to this kid!" Jack laughed as he landed in front of me. We shared a quick hug and everyone stared at us suspiciously. "Wha'? He an' I c'n be friends, righ'?" I huffed and Jack chuckled. "I just wanted to ask, how's the training
?" I quickly caught on to what he was really asking. "Oh, it's fine. Growin' at a healthy rate, said." He smiled and nodded. "Also, uh... It's been a while since we had a random snow day..." I laughed softly. "Sure, mate. Go wild. But don't bury us!" He giggled excitedly and flew into the air, above the low-hanging clouds where we couldn't see him. "What's he doing?" Lance asked timidly, and I chuckled. "He's Jack Frost, ya know. He's gonna make it snow." My little group cheered, and seconds later little white puffs began to fall beautifully from the sky. Jack flew back down and grabbed my hand before tugging me over to the fountain. He quickly froze it and jumped onto the ice, pulling me with him. It was big enough that we could ice skate around it. "You're a natural," He laughed, "And you don't even have skates!" I laughed as well, watching Lucy and Jamie build a snowman together. The snow had already covered the ground enough for half of the town to engage in a snowball fight. Everything was at peace, if not more for the first time in a while.
Yes, cheesy chappy title.
Hope ya enjoyed! I did! Expect more, soon! Ciao~!
