"There isn't time anymore." Rose stated the obvious as if it had just occured to her.
"I'm just going to get changed. I'll shower after school." Jake said as he raised himself off the floor with his wings, and flew up the stairs making both girls jealous that they only had legs. The schoolbus honked its horn outside, and Kaity began to panic that they would be late for their first day at school. Rose grabbed her wrists.
"We don't need to rush. I'll handle it." She announced, proudly.
"Thank you!" Kaity giggled. She was now fully dressed, and they'd even beat their brother who had gone upstairs to change. It used to annoy Kaity when Rose used her powers, it had felt like she was flaunting how she had magic while Kaity didn't, but she knew that she didn't mean it, and if she had it, why shouldn't she use it?
"Luis, there's no point. I can't do this. It's a billion times harder than Elementary. Do they not remember that that's where I was just last week?!"
"Shae, you need to get some self-confidence. You can do this, you're a smart girl." Luis turned back to his own homework, as Shaena sighed and muttered something about not needing self-confidence, but a new teacher.
"Hello, little guy. Where did you come from?" She asked, and wondered at herself for talking to an inanimate object. It certainly wasn't there when she'd come home from work only hours before.
"I dunno, Kait. Too early, go back to sleep." Kaity happily snuggled down under her covers again, while Shaena turned the lights off again and headed downstairs for some breakfast.
"I had a dream about you." She whispered, Shaena could hear the smile and was excited. Something good was going to happen.
