The Visitor From Curtisville--Ch. 7 The Sin Eaters
Chapter 7--The Sin-Eaters
On Lolly's last visit to Hogan's Gap, they wouldn't let her take any of the golden sun apples from the sacred orchards, nor any of the whistling stones or butterfly fish. They said that she didn't deserve any of these gifts because she was a "irresponsible, unclean, thieving brat," made even more despicable by her unhealthy obsession with anime fetish comics and the occult.
Ever since the Sparkle Lice and Locker 490 incident, she was forever grounded and had her privileges withdrawn...well, at least until she turned eighteen. Her books of spells and sorcery had been confiscated by the authorities, he

Chapter 6--The Very 'Special Snowflake'
Megaera's sharp yellow eyes scanned Ellery's wan and pale face. With a brisk twitch of her wrist, she pushed a squirming lock of purple hair behind her ear.
"So her 'good deed' of returning that lost artwork of your story was obviously just an excuse to glomp one of the O'Breen brothers?"
Ellery squinted at her through the fire and wood smoke. "I think she had no idea until she saw Ryuu walking besides me. What we didn't know at the time was she was Hoturu's assigned lab partner in Biology, and she had developed this really massive crush on him." She then added with a shrug. "Hoturu, being the macho, jock, silent type that he was, kept quiet about it. Perhaps he was even embarrassed and was blatantly ignoring her in the hopes she would eventually give up the chase."
Kes cleared her throat. "I'm wondering if that was really your actual story you got back?" she asked. "Or was th

Kes, who had been staring at Ellery in frowning concentration, raised her right hand. "Uh...'Scuse me," she said hesitantly, "but when is this Lolly Mcclaren character going to show up?"
"I was just getting to that part," muttered Ellery, rubbing her nose tip.
"Oh..okay," said Kes, nodding briskly as she lowered her hand.
It was then that a sudden unmistakable stench drifted into her nostrils.
Ugh, who let one? Kes wondered, appalled.
Her delicate nose twitched as she soon traced the acrid odor to the now embarrassed canine cop still siting firmly on her feet.
The Visitor From Curtisville--Ch. 4 Past History
Chapter 4--Past History
A herd of twenty licorn glided out of the surrounding forest, spiral horns and fluffy silvery hides glinting in the moonlight as they clattered across the cobblestone streets. They splashed in and out of a shallow creek that meandered through the front yard of one of stately townhouse, throwing up liquid moonbeams from their flying deer-like hooves. Finally growing weary of their wild games, they broke up into small groups, wandering up the hedge bordered streets to graze on lawn grasses and clover. Suddenly one of the licorn snorted, as a sickly oily odor filled its delicate nostrils. Its mane bristled all the way down its spine as the scent awoke a deep primal fear. Others soon sensed it too and panicked, and the whole herd quickly turned and vanished into the trees as silently as they had appeared.
Lolly Mcclaren's stride slowed as she made her way down the main stree
