“We need your help.” Eleanor had no idea where the voice was coming from, but it was obviously somewhere in the building. Looking for it, she was certain, would end up being a mistake, and she did think about leaving without doing what she’d gone there to do in the first place. If she wasn’t getting paid for it she would have walked away. Unfortunately she needed the money. “Lea, we know why you’re here.”

It shouldn’t have come as a surprise, but it did. Finula managed to get through the handfasting and the party afterwards easily enough. There was so much going on that she did have to spend much time with the man her father had chosen for her, although he did always seem to be by her side. She wasn’t entirely certain how he’d managed it, or that she appreciated it, but it did tell her what sort of husband he was going to be. Her sisters had told her that was what would happen – if it hadn’t been for their support she wasn’t sure she would have been able to deal with everything and she still had the hardest part to go.

It was midday and all of Alena’s shifters we safely on Earth. She turned to smile at the fae princess, their eyes meeting for a moment, making it possible for her to see all the worry within them. “Both the cats and the dogs have safely travelled to Earth, Willow. Alder looks knackered, but he’s still going, so I applaud your decision to choose him as the one in control of that side of the door.”

As the last of the shifters stepped through the door Tybalt breathed a sigh of relief. He hadn’t been certain that six hours would be enough time, but it had and he turned to smile at Alena. “Your turn,” he said, reaching out to squeeze her shoulder. “Alder’s on the other side. He went through as soon as Willow opened the door to begin setting up the tents that we’ll all be living in to begin with, until they have a chat with the Prime Minister and let him know what’s happening, when we’ll hopefully be able to start working something more permanent out.”

Willow had opened the door at midnight on the day when the boundaries between their world and Earth were at their weakest, because it meant that creating it used less magic than it would have done on any other day, and fortunately the Princess wasn’t stupid. Theo was the first to step through it, as one of the twin Kings of the cat shifters, while Tybalt had stayed behind, making sure that everything ran smoothly on Kalinia. As they only had six hours to get everyone through, before the dogs took over, it was important that it all went as planned – and with cats getting anything to go as planned could be difficult, but Theo knew the realisation was beginning to set in. Kalinia was fading fast. With Willow’s fae gone they’d have a little extra time. With Willow gone they had no other chance of getting to safety, unless they did what the griffins did and went hunting for a door, and it seemed unlikely they’d find one because they didn’t have the ability to feel magic.

There was something about the human girl, but Quentin couldn’t work out what it was. He found himself staring at the back of her head, again, wishing he knew, because then, maybe, he might be able to stop himself from watching her so much of the time. It could have been her confidence. She never once let the way some of the fae treated her affect her as she truly believed she was meant to be at the school and he knew that, technically, as she’d found the doorway, she was. Finding the door meant she had enough magic to be regarded as one of them, if she managed to finish her time at the school.

Before my magic manifested I thought I was a pure shifter, but I don’t know why. I know very little about either side of my family, because we don’t keep track of our bloodlines in the same way the fae do and that means we have very little knowledge of who my ancestors might have had relationships with, although I do know now that at least one of them must have had a child who was shifter-fae. When Willow found out about me… you have no idea how hard I was hoping she never would, because I knew that she’d want me to go to the school she set up and that wasn’t something I really wanted. Now, though, thanks to her annoyingly convincing arguments, I find myself standing outside of the building, hoping that whoever I’m going to share a dorm with will be understanding. Having a shifter in the school is unusual, to say the least.

When Fairuza applied she never believed she would be accepted as one of the twenty shifter-fae students at the school that Willow created and when she was she wasn’t entirely certain that she actually wanted to go. Most of the shifter-fae she’d met hadn’t wanted to go to the school, because they were against learning how to use their magic from a race that looked down on them, which was something she understood. The thought of having to deal with the fae was exactly the thing putting her off. Some of the fae she’d met, her father’s friends, had been lovely, but those who went to the school… like everyone else she’d heard horror stories. Yet her father, who’d gone to the school when it was first open, had managed to convince her that most of the fae she met, even though they would mostly be related to the elders, would be open minded enough to accept her.

It wasn’t an unusual situation. Travelling to Earth had changed things for all three of the races, and for the humans as well, but for the fae the change was more obvious. Like many fae parents Iantha’s had split up because the two of them disagreed on a number of issues, the main one being whether the fae should be mixing with the other races, and those arguments had been passionate on both sides, because her mum was the only one who’d married into a fae family. All of her siblings had chosen shifters or mer people to be their lovers and she was seen as the black sheep due to her choice. She had handfasted for love, a love that had faded with every argument they had. Of course it hadn’t helped when the man she had chosen told her that her family wasn’t permitted to enter their home.

It was one of those things everyone heard stories about, but Vaughn had never really believed them. The fae had always kept themselves separate, not wanting to mix with the humans, while the shifters and mer people had been much more friendly, although there were humans who had issues with the other races. Really that was to be expected. Finding that creatures most people thought were fiction actually existed was difficult and those problems were exacerbated by the fae’s irrational need to pretend that the rest of the world didn’t exist. Of course there were those who said that behind the scenes things were very different, that the fae Queen was fighting with her elders to get them to accept that being on Earth meant they had to change, and until he stepped through the wards it was something he couldn’t accept was the truth.

The flash of colour made Colton stop, although it took him a couple of steps to realise that he had seen something. Slowly he turned to look at it and found that the flash of colour was actually something that looked like a red door. He knew exactly what it was, because his parents had told him about the school, so he knew he had a decision to make. Being able to see the door meant he had enough magic to be counted as fae by the fae, but he wasn’t sure he wanted to be fae, even though part of him obviously already was, as he’d heard a lot of bad things about them. Not just from his parents, who’d both graduated from the school before choosing to live in an area that was home to several other mixed bloods, from shifters to mer people, so they didn’t have to spend any more of their time around fae who believed they were better than everyone else due to their ‘pure’ blood.
