Today, we explore Chapter Ten: Raincheck. Here, Maura Leroux and Kyle Hawthorne, a professor at Mystic Academy who has tested Maura’s strength and discovered her secret that she is the last remaining Leroux, have a little chat.
“I know why you’re here–”
“I suggest keeping it to yourself,” she interrupted Kyle.
“Of course.” Kyle held up his hands in surrender. “We’re on the same side. I want what you want.”
“I don’t wish for Adrian to open Abysm anymore than you do,” Kyle sighed. “The mess he would create…”
“He wouldn’t only create a mess. He’d destroy an entire world.” Maura leaned forward in her seat, fingers grappling with the arm rest. “Abysm is gone, and with good reason. A world like that cannot exist under a ruler like him.”
