TITLE: The Children of Chaos : Telos
GENRE: YA Paranormal Fantasy
I want my wish back. I need a redo. I’d gladly give up the chance for the perfect ending to the best day of my life if it meant unseeing what I just saw. Well, maybe not gladly, but I’d seriously consider it. Besides, the wish was wasted. He left before it could come true. And what’s done can’t be undone; what’s seen unseen.
“That settles it,” Cara says as the credits begin scrolling. “I’m never going in a cave. Ever. Not even if my life depends on it. And I’ll never be able to drive behind a car carrying pipes again either. Thanks, Lily.”
“Don’t blame me. You picked it out.”
“Well, I can’t go to sleep now,” Aria says with a shiver. “Let’s watch some cartoons or something.”
“Can’t.” I turn off the television. “My dad’s already freaking out about Carmichael. Once he sees what movie we watched…well, I better not add more to my list of sins tonight. I’d like to live to see my sixteenth birthday.”
"Party pooper,” Aria and Cara say together, dissolving into sleepy giggles.
“You guys go ahead.” I pick up the popcorn bags. “I’ll be right there.”
Aria yawns. “Mm’k, but hurry up. I want all the details of what your dad caught him giving you.”
I touch the locket of my new necklace and smile.
“Ugh,” Cara groans. “I said I was okay with this, but that doesn’t mean I want to hear about my little brother’s kissing abilities.”
