Soooooo... this is my first try at a fanfic. It's also based on an underrated ship! It takes place right before Legacy. Please read it and give me suggestions for what should happen next.
Chapter One- Linh
Linh sits on the edge of Calla's Panakes tree, looking up to the night sky. She had left Sophie's house hours ago, but she was too tired to go home. She was too worried about Tam, who had left them to join the Neverseen. Or had he left to save them? She really hoped he went to help Linh and her friends. Tam wasn't like that, was he? Would he really betray them like that?
As Linh was lost in her thoughts, one person was caught in her mind. Sophie. They had grown closer since Tam had left, mostly because Sophie was having boy problems. Linh didn't know what the big deal about boys was. All of them seemed more or less the same. Sophie, on the other hand, was special. Her eyes, and her abilites...
Linh wished she could be that special. Instead, she had been frowned upon during her childhood, and her teenage years. She was glad that she was no longer being seen as the Girl of Many Floods, and now one of Sophie Foster's friends, who saved the elvin world time and time again.
But Linh had a new desire- one to stand with Sophie at the front, not being behind her like always. She wanted to stand with Sophie, and hold her hand. She wanted to show that she was powerful, too.
But Linh couldn't do it. She was so quiet and calm, so all she could do was keep those thoughts in her person.
"Linh?" A familiar, soft voice said from behind her. It was almost pitch black now, but Linh could still see.
Linh turned around quickly, getting up off her feet.
"Sophie?" Linh asked. It was definitely her. Her blonde hair was back in a ponytail and she was wearing imp pajamas. (A gift from Dex, maybe?)
"What are you doing here?" Sophie asked. Linh pulled her hair behind her ears.
"I can't go home." Linh said. "Not until Tam is back with me."
"You could stay with me, if you want. Havenfield has room for you." Sophie suggested.
Linh lit up. "Of course i'll stay." She said nicely. She had totally emphasised that too much.
Linh woke up suddenly. In Sophie’s room. She was still there. Her head was on Sophie’s shoulder, and Sophie was propped up on a huge pillow.
That night, Linh had mostly sat in Sophie’s room, crying and crying and crying. She was just so worried about Tam. “He’ll be fine.” Sophie kept saying. After a while, Linh kept crying so she could stay in Sophie’s arms.
She didn’t like Sophie, did she? She’d never heard of an elf that liked their same gender before. Maybe she was a first.
While Linh was thinking about her growing feelings for Sophie, she realized she felt better. She took her head off of Sophie’s shoulder, which took a lot of effort because her whole face was in a lot of pain. Maybe because of all the crying she had done.
Sophie woke up with a jolt. “Linh?” she asked. “You’re… here?”
Linh blushed and scooted farther away from Sophie. “Sorry… I didn't mean to…” she started.
Sophie smiled, blushing the slightest bit. “It’s okay.” she said. “Are you feeling better?”
Linh smiled. “Yeah, you really help me feel better!” she said. Sophie stared at Linh with wide eyes.
Linh felt like she was red as a flareadon. “I’m sorry…”
Sophie put an arm around her. “It’s fine, Linh. You make me feel better too.”
Linh wished this moment could be perfect, but because she was thinking about Tam, she couldn’t make it as perfect as she wanted it to be.
Linh took a deep breath. “Sophie? Do you remember when I told you I liked someone?” Linh asked.
“Well…” Linh said. “That person is…”
Suddenly the door of Sophie’s room burst open. It was Fitz, and he glared at Sophie. He looked down at her hand. Linh was holding her hand.
Fitz turned red. “Sophie, we found a way to contact Tam.”
Sophie was very angry at Fitz. He said he FOUND a way to contact Tam, but later then told her it was just to try to communicate to him telepathically.
That was the one and only way, but it was too dangerous. Now, Sophie was alone with Linh again. She had asked for her to be there, because Linh was the only person she could handle right now. To be honest, if Sophie could spend the rest of her life alongside one of her friends, it would be Linh.
Linh was making a mural out of water on Sophie's wall. It was of Iggy, her pet imp, and it was beautiful how well water could listen if you told it something.
A knock on the door made Linh lose her concentration. The water splashed onto Sophie's bedside.
"Sorry." Linh said.
Sophie smiled. She went to open her door. It was her adoptive father, Grady. "That boy better not be in there." He said. "You know how i feel about him."
Sophie laughed and opened her door. "It's Linh." She replied. "She's staying here for a few days."
Grady kept a straight face. "Are you two-" He started.
Linh cut him off from the other side of Sophie's room. "No." She said.
Grady smiled. "Well then." He closed the door and left the room.
His presence still lingered there like those thick clouds of smoke in San Diego. Maybe it was because of what he had said. Are you two-
What were his last words going to be????
Sophie had felt a feeling growing inside her, one for Linh. She didn't want to admit it until right now. But, first, she needed to know how Linh felt.
Sophie knew what she was about to do, and there might be dire concequences.
