Unspoken Words @lexa_alycia
More than Friends

Beep! Beep! Beep!

Luz slowly blinked awake, smacking her lips together to get the bad taste out of her mouth. She grumbled to herself as she stuck out a hand to the nightstand adjacent to her and felt around for her cellphone. After a few seconds, she wrapped her hand around it and shut off her alarm. With a content hum, she snuggled back into her sheets and was just about to drift off into dreamland again when the bedroom door burst open.

“Luz! Wake up!” King stormed into the room. “You promised you would make me cakepans today!”

Luz grumbled and burrowed deeper into her sheets, pulling a pillow over her head. Undeterred, King huffed and jumped onto Luz, landing on her back. Luz grunted again and turned over, pushing him off. The demon squeaked as he fell to the floor, rubbing his sore rear. He crossed his arms and narrowed his eyes in irritation.

“Luz! C’mon, I’m hungry!” King whined. 

No response. 

King tried for a different approach.

“And, you have to get up anyway for school!” He shook her by the shoulder. “Don’t you want to see your friends?”

Luz shifted again, this time settling on her back. Her eyes remained closed.

A mischievous grin crossed King’s face as an idea struck him. He placed his paws on his hips, leaning back a bit.

“If you don’t get up now, I’m happy to call Hooty over and see if he can get you out of bed.”

After a moment, Luz let out a heavy sigh, admitting defeat. She sat up and rubbed her eyes tiredly.

“Fine, you win,” Her voice cracked from disuse. King pumped his arms giddily and bolted towards the door. “And for the record, they’re called pancakes!” She called out as he left the room in a rush, eager for breakfast.

Luz yawned and stretched her arms over her head. She rose to her feet and walked over to her duffel bag, digging around for her rumpled Hexside multi-track uniform. Once she finally pulled it out, she smiled when she noticed a purple-pink stain on the collar. She traced a finger over it briefly, and then changed out of her pajamas into the uniform.

Just yesterday, in Abomination 101, Luz had finally managed to successfully summon her first abomination, with the help of Amity of course. Sure, it had exploded all over the room when she tried to dispel it, but the kinks could always be worked out later. Luz thought she had gotten all of the stains out with a potion she nabbed from Eda, but apparently not.

Once she slipped on her Vans and ran her fingers through her hair in a half-assed attempt to comb it, she made her way downstairs where the rest of the Owl House inhabitants were waiting. Lilith was seated on the couch, thumbing through a heavy tome. Her glasses were laid askew and her hair disheveled, indicating she was fresh out of bed. Luz waved to her as she passed.

“Morning, Lilith.”

“Good morning Luz,” She nodded. 

Lilith reached out for a cup of tea on the table and took a small sip, placing the mug back on the table gently and returning back to her book. Meanwhile, Luz pushed the door to the kitchen open. King was already seated at the dining table, bouncing in anticipation of eating the fabled pancakes Luz had been raving about for the last few days. Eda had managed to get all the right demon world substitutes for the ingredients only recently, and today was the first day Luz would be making them. 

She grabbed a black apron that read Witch way to the appleblood? off of the door hook, and tied it over her uniform so it wouldn’t get dirty. Luz set to work immediately, cracking Ulama bird eggs into a bowl and whisking them with a practiced flourish. As she prepared breakfast, she made small talk with King, asking him questions about demon lore. She had to pick a demon and present on it for an upcoming Beast Keeping class presentation and was still undecided.

Luz placed a plate stacked high with fluffy pancakes on the dining table and took a seat beside King just as Eda came through the door looking worse for wear. Her hair was a mess and she had heavy bags under her heterochromatic eyes. Luz smiled at her.

“Morning Eda!” She called out cheerfully.

“Hey kiddo,” Eda replied, voice scratchy. 

Eda made a beeline straight to the coffee pot and began brewing herself a mug.

Luz looked back down at her pancakes and cut a small piece for herself. She popped it into her mouth and chewed slowly. Surprisingly, it had turned out well, though there was an odd aftertaste that left her mouth feeling tingly. That was probably fine, she had mild reactions to demon world food before and this was nothing. She thought about how her friends would react to eating pancakes. Willow would be tentative about trying them, but would definitely give it a shot once Luz assured her it was safe. Gus wouldn’t even hesitate. And Amity… 

Amity wouldn’t let Luz make them all by herself, she’d offer to help make them together. Luz smiled warmly and imagined herself making pancakes with Amity. Playing around in the kitchen, tossing flour at each other… Amity would pretend to be annoyed at the mess, but secretly would love it. Amity would try to clean off the flour from her face, but she’d miss a spot at the corner of her lips. So Luz, being the good friend she is, would reach over and brush the flour away with her thumb. Her lips probably would probably be soft to the touch…  

Wait.

Luz felt blood rush to her face and shook her head to rid herself of such thoughts.

Don’t go there! We’re just friends, don’t be ridiculous!

Luz rubbed a hand over her face and stabbed her fork into her next pancake, stuffing it into her mouth in an effort to distract herself from where her mind had wandered. It didn’t work. She thought of Amity’s shy smile, how she brushed a stray strand of hair behind her ear whenever it fell out of place, the way her arms wrapped around Luz when they hugged, the melodic sound of her laughter. 

Amity. Amity. Amity. 

Luz groaned and banged her head against the table as another thought crossed her mind.

Remember, Amity wanted to ask someone else to Grom.

Her stomach flip-flopped. Beside Luz, King continued wolfing down his pancakes. Across the kitchen, Eda was fiddling with the coffeemaker, unaware of Luz’s inner turmoil. 

She couldn’t help but think, what if things were different? 

And, would it be so bad if they were?

Luz felt as if she had lost her appetite. She placed her fork down, swallowing the last of the pancake in her mouth. She lifted her head from the table and stared blankly at the half-full plate before her. Luz never failed to finish her breakfast, but today that wasn’t happening. 

The words were out of her mouth before she could think.

“Hey Eda, do you think Amity likes me?”

Eda poured herself a cup of coffee, raising it to her lips with an eyebrow raised.

“Baby Blight? Likes you? I thought you two were dating?”

Luz blushed and she began sputtering over her next words.

“Wh- What?!” Luz had never felt so flustered. “Why would you think that?!”

“Well, she’s always holding your hand when you two go anywhere together.”

“She just doesn’t want me to get lost since I don’t know my way around the Isles that well,” Luz insisted.

Eda shook her head, placing the mug back onto the kitchen counter.

“Just yesterday you went on a date together.”

Luz’s face reddened further. Her heart thumped erratically in her chest.

“We just went for a walk through the Market and got dinner afterwards!” 

Eda tilted her head quizzically and narrowed her eyes.

“She came over yesterday and gave you a kiss goodbye when she had to leave.”

“Friends kiss each other all the time!” Luz rose to her feet, balling her hands into fists.

Eda just stared blankly at her. 

A million thoughts raced through Luz’s mind as she reevaluated every single moment she had spent with Amity since they had become friends. Then, it finally clicked. She gasped.

“Oh my god!” Luz slapped her hands to her cheeks. “We’re dating! Why didn’t anyone TELL ME?!” She wailed.

Eda looked completely flabbergasted. She took a step back and then threw both hands forward.

“HOW DID YOU NOT KNOW?!”

Meanwhile, King let out a loud burp, having finished his pancakes. He patted his stomach, clearly satisfied.

“Not bad, not bad at all.”

Luz felt herself beginning to hyperventilate. She ran her hands through her hair and slumped back into her seat, trying to calm down.

“What am I supposed to do?” She looked up at Eda. “How am I supposed to tell Amity that I had no idea we were together all this time?”

Eda shrugged.

“Beats me,” The witch picked up her coffee mug and took a large gulp before promptly spitting it back into the sink. “Ugh, this is disgusting,” Eda shook her head. “How can humans stomach this stuff?”

“Edalyn, I believe it has more to do with the fact that you’ve had that batch of coffee grounds for years, they’ve likely spoiled by now,” Lilith stepped into the kitchen, brushing past Eda to the sink to wash her dishes. 

Luz’s eyes widened.

“Lilith!” Luz scrambled over to where Lilith was standing. “You have to help me!”

Lilith furrowed her eyebrows in confusion, and then her lips curled up slightly in amusement.

“What did you do this time?” She asked.

“Apparently, Amity and I are dating and I had no idea about it until now!”

Lilith snorted and raised a hand to her face to stifle a chuckle. Luz scowled.

“It’s not funny!” She huffed and crossed her arms.

“My apologies,” Lilith composed herself. “Well, now that you’re in the loop, do you at least  know how long you two have been together?”

Luz gulped. She tried to think back on the development of their relationship over the last few months, but it was hard for her to tell at what moment they had become more than friends. There had been countless moments where it had just been the two of them together, including secret Azura book club meetings, countless study sessions, and hanging out together outside of school. 

“Uh…”

Lilith sighed and shook her head.

“Okay, let’s try for another approach. Do you feel comfortable talking to your other friends and seeing what you can gather from them about the situation before coming clean to Amity?” 

Luz nodded rapidly.

“Yeah! That sounds great!” Luz rubbed the back of her head sheepishly. “Thanks Lilith.”

“I’m glad I could be of some assistance,” Lilith replied and turned back to the dishes.

Eda glanced at the clock hanging on the wall, and noticing the time, she elbowed Luz.

“You better get going now, otherwise you’re going to be late to school, kid.”

Luz cursed under her breath and rushed out of the room, racing up the stairs to grab her book bag and school supplies. She hurriedly brushed her teeth and returned downstairs. Before she grabbed the door handle, she called out a goodbye to everyone over her shoulder.

“See you guys later!”

Luz opened the door, slamming it shut behind her, and took off into the woods, not even giving Hooty a chance to make some passing remark. As her feet thumped against the ground, her mind raced as she tried to put her thoughts together.

I can’t believe Amity and I are dating! When we first met, I doubted we’d become friends, but now we’re… girlfriends.

Luz’s face warmed at the thought. She couldn’t help but feel giddy at the new discovery. As she neared Hexside, she noticed Willow and Gus waiting by the entrance. Her pace quickened and she called out to them.

“Willow! Gus!”

They turned to look at Luz and smiled, waving hello as their friend approached them. Luz stopped right in front of them, panting heavily as she caught her breath. She looked up at them pleadingly.

“I need your help!”

Their eyes widened and they looked at each other before turning back to Luz.

“What’s up?” Willow asked.

“AmityandIaredatingandIhadnoidea!!!” Luz gasped.

“Uh Luz,” Gus scrunched his eyebrows together. “I didn’t quite catch that.”

Luz straightened and tried to compose herself before speaking again.

“Amity and I are dating, and I had no clue until this morning.” 

Willow and Gus looked at Luz blankly. After gathering her thoughts, Willow was the first to respond.

“Is this some kind of joke Luz?” Willow crossed her arms disapprovingly. “Because it isn’t very funny.”

Luz shook her head, gesticulating wildly with her hands.

“It’s not! I swear I had no idea until Eda pointed it out to me during breakfast.”

Willow facepalmed and let out a loud groan. Gus looked back and forth between his friends, not knowing what to say. Luz rocked back and forth on her feet anxiously. 

“This is bad, isn’t it?” 

Gus’ eyes widened as he looked past Luz. 

“Uh, guys,” He whispered.

“It’s not that bad,” Willow looked up and tried to reassure Luz, placing a hand on her shoulder.

“Guys!” Gus hissed.

“What?” Luz looked questioningly at him.

“Hey!” Amity looped an arm around Luz’s shoulder and gave her a quick peck on the cheek. “What are we talking about?” She looked around at her friends with a laid-back smile. 

Luz’s face reddened at the kiss, now aware of what it implied. She stuttered, fumbling for words but nothing came out. Gus looked like he was about to bolt on the spot. Luckily, Willow came to the rescue. She laughed awkwardly, waving a hand in the air and pushed her glasses up the bridge of her nose. 

“Oh, we were just talking about the field trip to the Demonic Museum at the end of the week! Right Luz?” Willow gave her friend a look and inclined her head to encourage her to speak up.

“Right!” Luz squeaked. 

The school bell signaling five minutes to classes screamed, saving Luz from herself.

“Well, I better get going since my first period is on the other side of school. I’ll see you later,” Amity stepped back and flashed a small smile at Luz. 

Luz managed a half-hearted wave, lips pressed together thinly, as she tried to refrain from panicking. Amity gave her a confused look, but nevertheless turned and walked away towards the school entrance. Willow, Gus, and Luz watched Amity as she disappeared inside.

“What am I going to do!” Luz cried, throwing her head into her hands. “Now I can barely hold myself together whenever I’m around her. She’s going to figure out the truth in no time at all!”

Willow, ever the level-headed one, reached out to Luz and pulled her hands away from her face. She spoke reassuringly and squeezed Luz’s hands in an attempt to soothe her nerves.

“I know this sounds bad--”

“Because it is,” Gus unhelpfully pointed out. 

Willow leveled him with a reproachful look. Gus shrunk under her gaze and mumbled “Sorry.”

“But!” Willow turned back to Luz. “This isn’t something that can’t be fixed. We have to get to class now, but find me during lunchtime and we can talk about what to do.”

“What about me?” Gus asked.

“Someone has to keep Amity occupied while Luz and I figure out a game plan.”

Luz nodded, squeezing Willow’s hands before dropping them and holding the straps of her backpack tightly in an attempt to center herself.

“Sounds good, and thanks guys,” She twisted her backpack straps in her hands nervously. “Honestly, I don’t know what I’d do without either of you.” 

Gus and Willow smiled at Luz and together, the trio set off to their first classes of the day.

----- ----- -----

Luz jumped to her feet as soon as the bell screamed, signaling the beginning of lunch. She pushed past her classmates and raced down the halls to the cafeteria. Once she arrived, she bypassed the lunch line and made her way to a table at the corner of the room her friends had already claimed. Gus and Willow looked up as Luz approached them.

“Yes! I made it!” Luz pumped an arm in the air, thrilled she had beaten Amity there.

Willow stood up from her seat and grabbed Luz by the arm.

“Let’s go to the greenhouse, no one should be there,” Willow turned to Gus and nodded her head. “You know what to do, we’ll be back soon.”

Gus waved goodbye and settled back into his seat as Willow pulled Luz out of the cafeteria and towards the direction of the Plant track classrooms. They didn’t speak on the way there, neither were looking forward to the awkward conversation that was about to ensue. Once they reached the greenhouse, Willow opened and closed the door behind them, drawing a spell circle to lock it. She placed her hands together and looked up at Luz.

“Okay, first things first, I’m going ask you a few questions to get a feel for the situation and we can move forward from there.”

Luz nodded, wiping her sweaty hands on her uniform skirt.

“Do you know how long you’ve been dating each other?”

Luz shook her head. Willow couldn’t help but cringe. She felt bad for her friend, but her heart broke for Amity, who had been head over heels for Luz almost as long as she had known her. She knew how hard it had been for Amity to open up to Luz and ask her on their first date… and the fact that Luz didn’t even know it had been a date, and that they’d been together for about a month now… Willow didn’t know how Amity would take it. But she knew it would be bad. Extremely bad if not done right.

Oh Titan. Poor Amity.

“Do you happen to know?” Luz asked with a hopeful expression.

“Around a month ago, Amity came to me after your first date and told me all about it. She was worried that I might not take you two being together well, given our history, but I didn’t mind. I was happy for both of you. I know she’s been working to make amends for her past actions, and that she’s changed herself for the better.”

All thanks to you.

Willow decided to not voice that last thought aloud.

Luz’s eyebrows scrunched up together in thought.

“A month… that means our first date was that picnic Amity organized at the Grom tree!” Luz facepalmed. “I’m such an idiot! How could I mistake that obviously romantic outing for something just friends would do?”

Willow shrugged.

“Honestly, I have no clue,” A small smirk appeared on her face. “Didn’t it click when she kissed you for the first time?”

Luz blushed, shifting on her feet.

“Okay to be fair, she only kissed me on the cheek when we had to go home after the picnic. Cheek kisses aren’t necessarily romantic!”

Willow cocked an eyebrow.

“So… you two havent--”

“No!” Luz squeaked.

Willow sighed, placing her hand on her hip as she examined her friend.

“Okay, well I think you should definitely come clean to Amity about this before her birthday--”

“BIRTHDAY?!” Luz exclaimed, eyes wide.

Willow frowned.

“You… didn’t know about that either?”  

Luz wanted to bury herself in a hole and never crawl out. Not only was she a horrible friend for failing to remember Amity’s birthday, but she was an awful girlfriend to boot. Her lack of response and baffled look was everything Willow needed to see. Willow had half a mind to shake Luz by the shoulders and scold her, but figured Amity would do that once she found out the truth. Willow crossed her hands behind her and leaned back.

“Okay,” She was silent for a moment, needing time to think. “Her birthday isn’t for a few days, it’s on the 20th, so that gives you some time to think about what you want to say to her and tell her before then.”

“And what should I say?” Luz asked. 

Willow sighed, rubbing her chin contemplatively. 

“Well, I think that should be mostly up to you. I mean, of course you have to apologize for not realizing her feelings for you since she made them really, and I mean, really clear. I also think she’s going to feel really insecure about your relationship when she finds out you had no clue about it. So you’ll probably have to reassure her--” She stopped in her tracks. “Wait…” Willow faced Luz with a grave expression. She spoke slowly, as if the words she was saying physically pained her.

“You do like Amity, right?”

Luz nodded her head rapidly.

“Yes! Of course I do! I mean, what’s not to like? She’s so smart, kind, and brave, I get lost in her eyes sometimes, and I love it when she laughs too--” 

Willow raised a hand to cut her off, she was relieved by her friend’s adorable rambling, but they didn’t have much time left before the lunch period was over.

“Okay, that’s good. But back to what I was saying before… it’s going to really hurt her to find out about this,” Willow’s face was dead set in a serious expression. Luz gulped. “So you have to be really careful with what you say and how you say it. Make sure you’re both alone, and won’t be interrupted. Alright?”

“Got it,” Luz fiddled with her hands. “Thank you, Willow. This conversation was really helpful.”

“I’m glad,” Willow grinned. “Now, let’s get you back to your girlfriend.”

Luz squeaked again, and Willow didn’t hold back her laughter as they walked back to the cafeteria together.

----- ----- -----

The end of the school day came far too fast for Amity’s liking. She barely got to see Luz at all and when she did, Luz was acting weird. Almost as if she was embarrassed to be around her.

“That’s absurd,” Amity told herself as she walked home. “She’s the least self-conscious person on the Isles. If there was something bothering her, she’d tell me.”

“Whatcha doing Mittens?” Amity’s sister Emira, seemed to materialize on her left. “Trying to find the best way to propose to Luz? Because I’m pretty sure it’s illegal until you’re seventeen anyway.”

“Not to get engaged,” Edric chimed in from Amity’s right, sandwiching his little sister between the two of them. “It’s totally within their rights to agree to get married before they’re adults.”

“Can’t I go a day without you two making fun of me?” Amity pushed onward, doing her best to ignore her older siblings.

“Of course,” Em said, faking sympathy in her voice. “But then where would we get our amusement?”

“You could make fun of each other,” Amity’s pace quickened. Her mood was already pretty rotten and having these two on her case wasn’t helping.

“We’re going to do that plenty this weekend,” Ed caught up to her, walking just ahead of her so he could look at her. “That’s our birthday gift to you, a full weekend free fro-”

“OH TITAN!” Amity exclaimed, making Ed jump back a good few feet. “My birthday’s this weekend?”

“Jeez Mittens, did you really forget?” Em’s tone changed to one of genuine concern. “Yes it’s this weekend. Sunday but-”

“The party will be on Saturday,” Amity rolled her eyes as she finished her sister's thought.

Every year, Amity’s parents threw a massive party on the weekend of their children’s birthdays. They went all out with flagrant decorations, ballroom dancing, and the best caterers. Everyone who was anyone would be there. The one problem was that all three of the children hated them. Hating these parties was one of the few things they all agreed on

“Sorry Mittens,” Ed put his hand on Amity’s shoulder. 

“It’s okay,” Amity took a deep breath in and exhaled.

“Think maybe mom and dad will let you invite your friends?” Em asked hopefully. 

Odds are they wouldn’t, given that the last time Willow was at Blight Manor their parents made Amity stop being her friend. Gus was talented but didn’t stand out. And Luz…

“I highly doubt it,” Amity really didn’t want Luz to have to see her in that kind of situation.

Forced to talk to people she had no interest in. Knowing that no one was actually there to celebrate Amity but to associate with the Blights and get on their good side. All the while Amity had to smile and pretend this was what she wanted.

“It’s probably for the best,” Em agreed. “It’s not like you’d get to spend much time with them anyway.” 

All three of them let out a collective sigh. 

“Look on the bright side,” Ed sounded cheerful. “It’ll be one of the last parties our parents make us attend this year.”

“Until next year,” Em countered glumly.

“At which point nothing will have changed,” Amity added on top of that.

“At least we all get to be miserable together,” Ed said in defeat of their situation.

Blight Manor came into view, with it’s lone tower and gate making for a foreboding welcome. It was home only so far as all three of them lived and slept there. None of them had ever felt sentimental value to the building itself. Their fondest memories were all from when they were much younger and didn’t realize how oppressive their parents were. Amity was the first to reach the door, opening it with the black skeleton key her parents had given her when she started school.

“We’re home!”

Ed’s voice echoed through the empty foyer. Unsurprisingly, their parents weren’t there to greet them. Amity made her way to the stairs to go to her room while the twins went to the kitchen to help themselves to an after-school snack. Amity was just passing by the living room when someone called for her.

“Amity, please come in here.”

Amity flinched at the sound of her mother’s voice. Swallowing down her nerves, she slowly made her way into the room. Odalia Blight stood in front of Amity, eyes narrowed in judgement. Alador sat in a chair examining an old leather-bound book.

“As I’m sure you’re aware dear,” Odalia said lovelessly. “Your birthday is this weekend.”

“Yes mother, this Sunday.”

“Right, it’ll be your fourteenth birthday this year so-”

“Fifteenth birthday, Odalia.”

Amity’s father hadn’t bothered to look up from his book as he corrected his wife. Odalia looked to the ceiling, doing the math in her head to see who was right.

“Ah yes, well regardless we’re expecting quite a turnout for your party on Saturday so please be on your best behaviour.”

Amity gave a small nod and turned to leave.

“One second young lady,” Amity’s father closed his book and stood up. He towered over both Amity and her mother. “I’ve heard that you’ve been spending a lot of time with the Human. Is this true?”

A cold chill ran down Amity’s spine. Based on the question they didn’t know that she and Luz were dating, thank the Titan. Still, she had hoped that they wouldn’t know about Luz at all. The worst case scenario began to play out in her head. Them telling her to leave Luz, to never speak to her again or else they’d do something about it.

“Y..yes father.”

Alador drew closer to Amity, a cold gaze meeting the fear in Amity’s eyes.

“This is the same Human that interrupted the petrification of that dreadful Owl Lady, correct?”

“Yes,” Amity’s voice trembled.

This was it. She’d have to tell Luz that they could never be seen in public again. All of those wonderful dates they had gone on, Azura book club meetings, all of that would be gone.

“I see,” Alador reached into his cloak. Amity shut her eyes, afraid of what was to come next. “Then please make sure she receives this.”

Amity’s eyes shot open. Alador was holding out an envelope with the wax seal of the Blight House closing it.

“I’ve been curious about this Human for quite some time. I’d like to meet her in person and see what she’s like.”

“Oh,” Amity gingerly reached out for the envelope. Her shaking fingers took it carefully from her father’s steady grasp.

“Do you think the Human will come?”

“Luz,” Amity stared at the letter dumbfounded.

“Pardon?” Odalia’s sharp tone cut through the room.

“The Human’s name,” Amity quickly explained, looking between her Mother’s stern expression and her Father’s unreadable one. She desperately hoped they didn’t think she was being difficult, they were quick to anger and slow to forgive.

“Will… Loose… come?” Alador’s mispronunciation felt far more insulting than just calling her Human.

Amity looked at the letter again. On one hand she really didn’t want Luz to meet her parents. More specifically, to be judged by them. On the other hand disobeying her parents was not something Amity wanted to do on a good day. And these next days leading up to her birthday always made Odalia more tightly wound than usual, which was saying a lot.

“I think she will if I invite her,” Amity finally said.

Her father nodded and turned to sit back down but Amity wasn’t finished.

“On one condition!” Alador stopped but didn’t turn to look at Amity. “I need you to swear this isn’t a trap to capture Luz. I know Belos issued a pardon, but Luz is still the only human on the Isles. If I’m going to offer her hospitality, then that needs to be honored.”

“My, my, young lady,” Alador’s response was surprisingly almost cheerful. “Someone’s being rather paranoid, very fitting for the next generation of Blights. I suppose, since it is your birthday, I swear as the head of this house that no harm shall befall Loose when she is here.”

“Thank you father, is that all?”

“Yes, you may go now Amity.”

Without so much as a goodbye, Amity turned and left the room. She climbed up the stairs to her bedroom and barely managed to shut the door before she collapsed onto her knees. She blinked back tears as she stared at her trembling hands. Taking deep breaths, Amity pushed herself off the ground.

Oh Titan what just happened?! They want Luz to come here?! And I just asked my Dad not to… kidnap her? What was I thinking?

Amity walked over to her dresser, intending to change out of her uniform.

I could deliver the letter now. Or I could wait until tomorrow and do it at school. I don’t want to deliver it in front of Willow though. That would bring back some harsh memories of what happened all those years ago.

Amity sighed and changed into her casual attire of a black dress and purple leggings.

Might as well get this over with. I can go over stuff with Luz too. She’ll need all the preparation she can get before the day of the party.
