Chapter 23

“In two days this could all vanish, how are we supposed to concentrate on soccer?” Hope asked as we practiced our juggling.

She’d gotten pretty good after I’d shown her a few tricks.

I was going to go insane if I stayed inside The Cave another minute. Once a cool and intriguing place, I pretty much hated it now. Reminded me of everything that was so not right with me.

I adjusted t...

Chapter 22

“Basically we’re all gonna die.” Hope paced the floor behind me, cracking her knuckles again.

I stood before three monitors down here in The Cave and the different face filling each stared at me with wide eyes.

I’d stunned The Council Triad silent, which was saying a lot considering the middle one liked to talk. He was the leader, Victor, and he had a mustache so big it looked lik...

Chapter 21

The creature glared at me. His teeth, which looked like oversized fangs, stuck out from his mouth like a rhino, only from the top of his mouth.

He had a pig’s nose with a purple ring through it. Ouch. The rest of his face looked sort of human.

And his body—well, maybe.

It was covered with some kind of silver armor. Only, it was darker than silver. And it shimmered with a little bi...

Chapter 20

“Hey!” Christian pushed off me as I plowed by him, dribbling the ball toward the goal.

I spun. Pushed. Kicked. All of it. I’d make it to the goal no matter what. This was mine. A normal kid’s soccer game. Nothing else mattered.

It was dark out. The lights were bright. The crowd was loud.

And it rocked!

I kicked with everything I had, and the ball blasted by the goalie. “Yes!” I sp...

Chapter 19

I landed on my back. All the air jetted out of my lungs. Hope screamed. Then Tish did.

Oh, crap. We landed in a nest of Barbarians, didn’t we? We were going to die.

Someone pushed my shoulder. “Get off me, man.”

It was Braeden. I opened my eyes and there he was. My body lay over his, and even though he had a few years on me, my size kept him pinned down.

Until he pushed me. I roll...

Chapter 18

The cave was pitch black, but Braeden had a torch burning as he stood by the entrance.

“Wow. You really were a boy scout once. Huh?” Hope said.

“Glad for that, now, aren’t ya? I think you’ll be owing me some chocolate.”

“Mmm, chocolate. I could eat a pound of it right now.”

“I’m hungry, too,” Tish said.

“I got you covered. Come on.” Braeden led the way, and I saw a light up ahead....

Chapter 17

Barbarian Boy flapped his only wing. But one wasn’t enough to keep him—us—airborne.

Bad thing, though, he was veering toward the cliff where my friends were.

I kicked my legs, trying to get him to go down before he reached the other side. Maybe I’d be able to grab that rope bridge on our way down and not plummet to my death.

Barbarian Boy snapped at me. His fangs grazed my neck. I...

Chapter 16

“Home. Home. Home,” I said at the coin. “Please?”

“We’re gonna die!” Hope cried.

“Go!” I pushed her through the back doorway and around the side of the small house. “Come on.”

“Hi.” A deep voice stopped me in my tracks.

A creature, not much bigger than me, smiled at us. For once, someone my height. Only this kid had two horns coming out of his head, right at his temples.

I blinked...

Chapter 15

It was completely silent now, but the wind whipped around me still. I couldn’t hear anything. Not even muffled breathing.

I floated in the swirling darkness. No light. Couldn’t see anything. Lashes of hot and cold, struck my face and bare arms like little whips.

There. A light. Up ahead.

Something pushed me from behind, and I lurched forward. I twisted so my back hit the ground.

T...

Chapter 14

“I almost peed my pants watching you.” Hope eased my window open. “How can you be so graceful on the soccer field but not climbing a silly tree?”

“Not as talented as you, I guess.” I wiped the sweat off my forehead. “That was no sadventure.”

Hope giggled. “You so can’t use that word anymore. It just doesn’t work for you. Besides, it’s mine.”

“You own words now? Kinda thought they...
