Author's note: I've always loved astrology, and that's basically what this book is based on.
Chapter 5Elyon carefully climbed down the mountainside. He never really appreciated how high Mount Pyle was. Strangely, he didn’t feel tired. He didn’t feel anything at all. He ran past Mohali and into the plantation in which he was raised. He realized that this happened in a few seconds.
He ran up to Rhea’s cabin, pulling the dark red cloak that he had found in his closet tighter. He slipped in, like a red shadow, and found Rhea sleeping on the floor. He touched her and she stirred. Suddenly her eyes opened and her mouth began to form a scream.
Elyon put his hand against her mouth. “Quiet!” He hissed at her. Rhea’s eyes widened when she recognized his voice. Elyon took her hand and pulled her outside.
“Elyon!” Rhea exclaimed. She hugged him. “They told me I’d never see you again!”
“They were wrong.” He grinned. “But right.”
Confusion clouded Rhea’s features. “But you’re here.”
“I’m not supposed to be here.” Elyon informed her. “How’s Matte?”
“He’s fine, but he’s really lonely. There’s no one to talk too.”
“Yeah. It’s worse on Mount Pyle.”
“What’s going on?”
Elyon hesitated. He wondered if he should tell her about Chaos. He decided she didn’t need to know about it. “My trainer, Pisces, hates me. It’s because she was close with the last Scorpio, so now she thinks I’ve ‘replaced’ him.”
Rhea sighs. “It’s worse here. It’s very hot, and we’ve had 4 people faint from heatstroke already.” Rhea looked at Elyon. “When will I see you again?”
Elyon shrugged. “I don’t know. Just keep a lantern lit for me.” With that, he ran all the way back to Mount Pyle.
