Black Catkin Part 5The Legends: The Scrolls of the Black Catkin
Rashel looked at the girl, in the backseat, through the driver's mirror. She looked about 14 years old, and seemed pretty trustworthy, but Rashel knew from several Circle Daybreak reports that Jasper, their contact, had mysteriously stopped taking any jobs from them for a long time. To Rashel, this girl could easily just have been covering up for her father (if he was her father). She also wanted to find out if what she'd said was true.
"This is it," said Pandie, pointing out the window, "the one with the big iron gates."
Rashel drove past the gates and around the corner into an empty alleyway. Even though she and Quinn dealt with the Night World spies that had been creeping around the area, didn't mean it was safe. Trying to remove The Dark One's cronies from a city, town, or village, was like trying to remove dried bloodstains from clothing; virtually impossible.

Leilani found herself back at school feeling as if she'd woken up from a strange dream. The weird thing though was this felt more like a dream than anything else. For one thing the classroom was completely empty except for herself and a handsome boy about her own age with rusty red hair and clear blue eyes, and there was no teacher.
"Are you sure you can handle it?"
Leilani looked surprised at the boy. He was staring at her like someone who stares at a beautiful piece of art that only they can appreciate. "I'm sorry," she said, trying not to stare too long at his beautiful blue eyes, "but are you speaking to me?"
"Yes, I was." the boy answered her calmly, "I want to know can you handle it?"
"The dangers of being an apprentice knight" the boy answered again, "and of allowing someone to steal your heart after you've stolen his own, Firefly.

Pandie stared at the boy in front of her. She wasn't used to people at her so intensely, and this boy was giving her strange looks. Why is he looking at me like that? she thought to herself, Have I still got some dirt on my face? I thought I cleaned that all off in the rest room.
Then, as if to answer her question, she found herself looking at her through his eyes. To him, she was mysterious, beautiful, and looked like a heroine from an ancient myth. I don't look like that, Pandie thought to herself, remembering all the times she'd arrive home from hunting, with dirt on her face, twigs in her hair, and blood on her fingers or claws, depending on whether she was in her human form or her half and half form.
Suddenly she felt something cold and wet nudge her leg. Looking down, she saw a dark brown and tan cocker spaniel sitting beside her.
"Casey," she said without thin

Seamus Hanlin stared at his little girl sitting on the seat across the table from him. To be honest she wasn't really a little girl anymore.
Leilani had more than halfway grown into a fine young lady. Her hair was black as soot and cut into a short messy chin length bob which was a lot shorter in the back than it was at the front, and her eyes were the same jewel green his own eyes were: snapping and bright also. She already made a fine looking apprentice knight in the black breeches she'd been lent and her apprentice uniform.
"Dad! Wake up! I've been trying to get your attention for the past five minutes!"
"I'm sorry, Leilani" Seamus apologized to his daughter, "I was miles away there. What was it you wanted to talk to me about?"
"Well," Leilani said, clearing her throat a little, "it's about this whole fey and knight business. Why did you let me grow up think

"WHAT DO YOU MEAN THE PARCHMENT WAS LOST?!?! WHAT FOOL WAS CARRYING IT?!?!"
Calder Blueoak winced and held the phone receiver away from his ear. This guy's worse than, Hunter Redfern, he thought to himself, At least when Hunter was in charge, I didn't get almost deafened answering the phone. "I mean, we lost it," Calder spook into the phone, "it was beyond our control. We were attacked, and Felix..."
Before he could finish what he was saying, the voice on the end of the phone interrupted him. "So, that little made vampire worm lost the parchment." said the voice, deadly calm, "Don't think I can't sense what you're thinking, Blueoak, just because I'm talking to you on this thing. You'll lose more than your hearing if you don't get that parchment back."
Immediately Calder slammed a mental wall up around his mind. "Yes sir" he said, wishing his boss would mee

"So Firefly, do you like your present?"
Leilani looked up from her mother's world famous Hawaiian cooked breakfast and shrugged her shoulders. "It's certainly interesting" she said, feeling the soft suede material of the over-tunic, "Dad doesn't usually give me this kind of stuff for my my birthday. Is something up, Mum?"
"Nothing's up" Leilani's mother answered her casually, giving her a cheery smile, "I can't imagine what gave you that idea. Why don't you eat up the rest of your breakfast and try on your present."
"Is that the time? Quickly Leilani, time's running out."
Leilani shrugged her shoulders and quickly polished of the rest of her food. Her mother was acting so strange but Leilani decided to not question her in case there was a method to her madness.
"You've no time to change," Leilani's mother said matter-of-a-factly, busily tidying away the empty brea
