"What did those Fey want?" I asked, catching an air of defeat about her, "They were here to talk to you weren't they?"
Ouch. I thought. Unwittingly, he had opened a whole can of worms I really didn't want to talk about. I suppose they will find out sooner or later.
I pulled my sleeve back, showing him the spiked black rune that was now burnt into my skin.
"I don't know how well you can read Fey, but that is the rune for exile. Those Fey were here to pass on a message from the Queen. The result you can see for yourself. It was for defending 'enemies of the Fey' from the Suicidals. They cast me out and left themselves with no Hunters because I protected you lot."
I was shaking from anger. I couldn't meet Sparx's eyes as he sat there mutely. I gave him a bitter smile.
"I guess you will be stuck with me for a while now."
With that, I walked out, before he also saw the tears in my eyes. I figured he probably didn't want to deal with that. I ended up running into Mark in the corridor.
"Ravyn?" he caught my shoulder, forcing me to look at him.
I closed my eyes, looking down and away from him. I was struggling to keep an outward appearance of calm.
"I heard what the Fey said to you.." he began.
"So you were spying on me!" I cried, seizing on the oppourtunity to vent my anger. "Just leave me alone you leech. I wish I had let those Suicidals kill you. I would have been home by now."
I wrenched my shoulder free and ran away from him, slamming the door to my room shut. I felt terrible for what I had said, but I was angry and hurt. I wanted to be alone. I paced the room in an attempt to calm down.
There was a knock at the door.
