City Shadows Chapter 10Animal House
"So, is it just me, or are we having a lot of field trips?" Tim asked. The four of them sat at one of the outdoor tables just outside the cafe of their local zoo. All around them, people were walking or tending to their children who were either squealing with delight or throwing a tantrum because they never wanted to leave.
"Aren't we supposed to be studying the animals for biology or something?" Liam asked.
"Please! One time, we were studying physics in class and the school booked a field trip to the amusement part. Now, what do you think we did then? Physics or ride the roller coaster until I puked?" Mavis asked.
"I'm gonna say puke," said Mala.
"Correctomundo, girlfriend!" Mavis said with a wink and thumbs up.
"I just still can't believe he's here," Mala said, angrily glaring at Drago, who sat at a nearby table. The other seats at his table were filled with girls from their grade also on the field trip. Drago simply ignored them, which only made him all the more

"Demon Stalkers… Shadow Hunters? No, Night Crawlers? No, no, that one's been done before," Mavis muttered, scratching something out on a piece of paper with her pencil. "Dark Slayers? Shadow Slayers?" she continued asking herself.
"Mavis, are you sure that's really the best thing to be doing right now?" asked Liam.
"Yeah, I'm pretty sure your best friend could use your support right about now," said Tim.
"Well, she seems perfectly content wearing a hole in her carpet with all that back and forth pacing. When she's ready to talk about it, I'll totally be there for her." As Mavis spoke, Mala paced back and forth, the wooden floor squeaking beneath her heels as she spun.
"So, uh, Mala, do you want to talk about what's bothering you?" Tim asked meekly. All of a sudden, Mala whipped her arm with an angry scream, throwing a crystal shard straight into the wall. "OK! We don't have to talk about it!" Tim squealed, ducking against the couch.
"Oh!" Mala cov
City Shadows Chapter 8Callahan's Five
"Uuugggghhhhhhhh!" Mavis groaned, dropping her head onto the cafeteria table. She let out a heavy sigh, wetting the table surface.
"Mavis, you have to get over it," Tim said.
"But I ca-han't!" she wailed in despair.
"Mavis, it's only the second day back. It's not that bad," said Mala.
"Not that bad? Not that bad?" she repeated loudly. "We had a whole two weeks of freedom! And now it's gone!"
"We still had homework, you know?" Liam pointed out.
"Ok, relative freedom," she corrected. "But that's besides the point! Hey, do you guys think that maybe you could…"
"Could what?" Liam asked, taking a sip of his soda.
"Mavis!" Mala gasped in shock. "Absolutely not! How could you even suggest that?"
"You don't even know what I was going to say!"
"Mavis, we are not going to destroy the school," Liam lectured her.
"Ok, maybe you did know what I was going to say…" Mavis said dejected.
"Yeah, and we certainly aren't going to do it on purpose this time," Mala added
City Shadows Chapter 7One of a Kind
"After him!" Linos shouted, dashing through the abandoned warehouse after Daolon Wong. "We can't let him get away with that Coin! Tim, do something!" he shouted.
"I'm trying! He's moving too fast! And I'm still just an apprentice!" Tim argued.
"I'll slow him down!" Mala declared. She waved her hands as crystals formed around Daolon Wong's feet, trapping him. He struggled and pulled to free himself, but the crystals were too strong and held him in place.
"Ugh, pesky children!" he cursed. He pointed his staff to the crystals and disintegrated them with a ray of dark energy. "Let's see how you deal with this!" Daolon Wong muttered an incantation as a dark circle appeared in front of him. A giant black scorpion appeared and advanced on the group, snapping it's claws menacingly.
"Whoa! Operation: Midnight Madness just got more interesting!" Mavis declared.
"Look out!" Linos shouted, diving towards Mavis and tackling her out of the way as the scorpion's tail pierced the
