Harsh sunlight was the first thing to meet her, causing her to squint and shade her eyes. The morning was still young with an angled blue spread over the sky. Phoebe turned away from the sun to see Bluebell waiting patiently for her; he shot a glance towards the field that the train car had skidded into, and Phoebe followed it. A small group of people was fast approaching.
“Glad to see you on your feet again,” Julia greeted with a smile.
“You’re the... Then that’s…” Phoebe’s gaze traveled from Julia to Yuli.
“Yup! Julia, the witch. Yuli is my partner and familiar.”
Familiar. Fox. Fae. “F-”
Before Phoebe could yell the word, Asmeret clamped a hand around her muzzle. “I understand, but now isn’t the time. The crowd here has got enough to deal with,” they said.
“Plus,” Julia sighed before continuing, “Yuli was the one who jumped in to save you. You know the difference between familiars and wild fae, right?”
The gang's all here! (Mostly!)
Also, school started back up for me this week, which is exciting (???). It means I'm going to be working less on Kata as well. Hopefully that won't hurt the update schedule, chapter I only has ~5 weeks until completion and I should be able to get it all out on time.
