Chapter 2: Graves 1 7/12/2015 1:05 PM
Graves Zahhak floated along the halls, feeling empty inside. The ghostly troll had been too creepy for the others to handle, and accidentally scared them away. Not only that but he passed through the troll he liked, causing her to chill instantly. He didn’t just like her, he liked her. He felt so stupid. He always was clumsy, but today…
He walked into class hoping he wouldn’t do anything stupid. The teacher, Ms. Yonlla, looked at him and quickly back to the board.
“Graves, what is nine plus ten?” She asked. Before he could answer, a troll whispered in his ear a false answer. Without thinking he accidentally repeated it,
“Twenty-one,” No,no,no why would you say that?! He thought.
Ms.Yonlla walked over to his desk and quietly said, “I want to see you after class, Mr.Zahhak.”
Finally, the bell rang. He talked to the teacher, and then left. School was over for the day, and Graves was glad. As he floated to his locker, he saw his sister. He waved, but she didn’t notice. She was looking at someone. Graves left the school, and floated home. When he floated through the door, his sister was somehow already there.
“Hey, Graves!” She said cheerily to him. She was obviously in a good mood.
“Hey,” He replied, pulling out his homework.
“Let Me tell you about this girl I Met today,” She said, not acknowledging that Graves was trying to concentrate, “Well, I didn’t really get a naMe or anything, but we buMped into eachother!”
“Yeah,” Graves said, not really paying attention to her babble about whoever she met.
Graves finally finished his homework and decided to get on Trollian. As he logged on, he saw that he had a message. It was from someone with the handle of JudgeJustice. The message said,
1 W4nT tO w4Rn YoU 4bOuT sOm3Th1Ng. Wh4T3v3R yOu Do, Do NoT l3T yOuR s1St3R n34R wHo Sh3 1S t4Lk1Ng 4BoUt. 1F yOu Do, 1T w1Ll OnLy Br1NG D4nG3r 1NtO bOtH yOuR L1f3 4Nd H3rS. pL34s3 H33d My W4rN1nG.
This message freaked Graves out very much. He had no idea how this person knew that he had a sister, or how they knew that his sister met someone today. Perhaps she had talked to someone else. Maybe this was really the person she met messing with him. No, that couldn’t be right! How would they know his handle? Maybe she had given them it? Graves didn’t think that she would do something like that though.
He was freaked out for sure, but he realized that it may have just been spam. He simply brushed it off as just that. He replied with a, “Please don;t spam,” And that was the end of that, because he blocked them.
