Hi! Since the original thread was closed due to mean comments, I am reopening it! I will pick up directly where we left off, so if you forgot, here is the link to the original thread, even though you cannot comment on it. - https://lost-cities-keeper.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:191403
After school, Sophie walked to the Leapmaster with Keefe. He still had his shirt off. Magnate Leto had called him to his office, and Keefe explained the dare, and Magnate Leto would let him wear his shirt off for the whole week as long as he served detention for the rest of the year. Keefe was happy to do it. On one condition. Magnate Leto did not tell Lord Cassius.
Keefe and Sophie leaped to Havenfield, to find Fitz helping Grady with Verdi. Sophie blushed, and dragged Keefe inside before Fitz or Grady knew she was back. She dragged him upstairs to her room. She opened her mouth to say something to Keefe, when Fitzs thoughts dragged her out of it.
Um, sorry to bother you.
What are you doing? She replied.
Um, I wanted to ask you a question.
Keefe looked at Sophie questioningly. She shook her head at him, meaning not now. Keefe smirked. He layed back on her bed.
Um, are you and Keefe a thing? Fitz continued.'''Sophie flushed. Keefe smirked.
I dont really know. Sophie admitted.
Can you find out for me? I still want to be Cognates. I just feel like- us- wasnt a good idea. I am so sorry.
Ok, I will try. Sophie sat up, and looked at Keefe. '“Keefe-'”
Keefe immediately stopped her. '“I got some pretty strong emotions, Foster. And I found one in particular.... Do you love me Sophie?'”
Sophie processed what Keefe had just said. HE USED HER FIRST NAME.
She swallowed the lump in her throat, and flung her arms around him.
You write well, but am I the only one that thinks that Sophie is only unmatchable because they don't know who her genetic parents are? So if Mr. Forkle just tells the matchmakers, and they promise not to tell anyone, couldn't she still be matched with Fitz?
A couple weeks later, Sophie was at home in her room. She pulled out her spy ball, and said Fitz's name. He appeared in the spyball and Sophie saw him walk up to the Song's house. She realized what he was going to do to. She watched silently as Fitz snuck in through a back door. He ran up some stairs, and stopped at a door. He knocked, and none other than Linh came to the door. A floating ball of water hovered above her palm. Then Fitz did what Sophie knew was going to happen.
Keefe, what is going on? Did you manifest as a telepath? Sophie asked.
Nope, Keefe replied.
THEN WHAT IS IT????!!!??? Sophie screamed mentally.
Chill your beans, Keefe chuckled. I've spent so much time with you I can now recognize your "emotional scent". So I searched for your emotions, and nudged them. Then you opened your mind to mine, and here we are.
Sophie was shocked into silence for a while.
This is not normal, Sophie finally replied.
Yeah, thanks for making me feel special, Foster. Keefe smirked.
This is what I get for spending so much time with you, Sophie chided. She felt Keefe grin.
You know you like it, Keefe responded.
Sophie sighed so hard it hurt.
She had to adimit she did.
It was midnight.
Sophie couldn't sleep. They were making no progress against the Neverseen, and Sophie had a bad feeling in her stomach. She felt like something bad was going to happen. She tossed and turned, and turned and tossed. And turned. And tossed. One time she even fell out of bed, Iggy letting out what Sophie was convinced was a snicker.
In the morning, she trudged downstiars. She could feel the bags under her eyes. She plopped down on a crystal chair, and reached for a peice of mallowmelt. Grady looked up from his paperwork.
"Good morning, sleeping beauty." He smiled.
Just then, Edaline walked in, holding a message with the Black Swan symbol on it. Sophie's heart began to race.
"I found this in the pocket of my cape," Edaline said uncertainly.
"Why you?" Sophie asked as Grady took the letter from Edaline and opened it. Edaline shrugged.
As Grady read the letter, his eyebrows scrunched together. He hadn't been reading it long, before he dropped the letter, and slumped back in his chair. Sophie's heart reached an all time high.
well too bad if you aren't because im the author here so I decide where this goes
Anyway Here's the next part
“Dude, seriously, the trees won’t be able to filter all this carbon dioxide you’re emitting,” Keefe jokes. “That is the seventh time you’ve sighed in the last five minutes. Seriously, what?”
They were in Study Hall at Foxfire, and Fitz was worrying about Linh.
“I’m just nervous about what they could do to Linh,” Fitx replied.
“Yeah, and why weren’t you worried when the Neverseen took Tam? They can do all the same things to Tam,” Keefe retorted.
Sophie sucked in a breath. She thought she would never see the day when Keefe would defend Tam.
“But they could hurt Linh to make Tam cooperate.” Fitz stated.
“Ok, so Linh may be in danger. But when we thought Sophie was dead, you didn’t shed a tear. And who cried? Whose mother erased his mind to get information on Sophie? Who?” Keefe said, surprisingly calm.
“Uh, we were talking about Linh. And now we’re talking about me?” Sophie asked nervously.
Keefe looked at her. “This is not about Sophie.This is about you whining about Linh not being here.”
Fitz balled his fists. “Yes, it is. Everything leads back to Sophie. If the Black Swan hadn’t created Sophie, my dad wouldn’t have sent me to go look for her. I would have continued to live my life as normal, and THIS ALL WOULDN’T BE HAPPENING!” Fitz burst out.
Keefe looked shocked. “So maybe some of our problems wouldn’t exist, but the Neverseen would still exist, which means my mom would still be in it. And your brother would still be a traitor. But we wouldn’t know those things now. Sophie helped us get where we are. The Black Swan created her for a reason. And I trust the Black Swan. The rest is up to you.” Keefe finished, before standing up, and walking to his next class.
There was a shocked silence within their group. Dex looked down at his notebook, pretending to take notes. Biana was looking at Keefe’s retreating back with her mouth open in an O.
Fitz turned to look at Sophie. He also wore a shocked expression on his face, but he was looking at Sophie.
Sophie gave a long, hard, look, before gathering her belongings and following after Keefe.
MORE MORE MORE MORE YOU ARE SOOOOO GOOD. I like the Linh going missing part... even though I ship Lylie. Anyways I also like that Fitz got completely roasted by Keefe, and your writing is great. Keep up the good work! :D
