The next morning, Luke went to The Well. He looked at the fairies who were buzzing around, fixing the explosion. A few days ago, there had been a horrible explosion. He noticed a couple of fairies with magnifying glasses, trying to look for clues. He sighed, it was basically his fault that this happened. Ashley. It's because of Ashley! She wanted to turn back into a fairy! He was fuming. After a while, he noticed that he was standing in front of an unfamiliar house. He looked at it. House A. He knocked on the door and the very same girl, who came out of the diary was standing in front of him. She was still in her pajamas.
"Why did you have to turn back?" he asked trying his best to keep his voice low. It was still dawn, barely anyone was awake. The girl, Ashley, looked surprised.
"What do you mean?" she questioned his question. "I had explained everything!"
"Well, because of you, I have to suffer the pain of watching The Well get reconstructed." he said.
"Well, I'm sorry." she was about to close the door, but Luke kept it open.
"You do realize that the Queen could find out, right?"
"Yes." she nodded calmly.
"So? Why don't you do something about it?"
"Because you were the one who transformed me!"
"Well, what about the freakin' Forbidden Book Of Magic?!" he yelled. He was losing his temper. Ashley gestured him to lower his voice. She slammed the door in his face and Luke flew all the way back home. House L.
While Luke was flying home, Lily's parents were discussing Layla's future. She was becoming really absorbed in fashion. They had asked her what she wanted to be in the future and she had said she wanted to be a fashion designer. They'd asked her this question a year ago, and now it was time that she get applied to a university. Grade twelve was already finished for their daughter. Just the prom and the graduation and it was all over! They had to start searching for universities.
Once Luke arrived home, he looked at the time, 7:07. "Already?!" he exclaimed which brought mom and dad to come out of their room. They had been awake too but they didn't know that he was out. "Good morning, hon" mom said and planted a kiss on her son's forehead. Dad smiled at him, that was his way of saying good morning.
"Lea! Its time to wake up now!" mum yelled up the stairs. She didn't want to go upstairs, after all, mom and dad's bedroom was downstairs, not upstairs.
"I'm almost ready!" sixteen-year-old Lea yelled back down. She was getting ready for camp. Lily was helping her get a proper outfit; Lea was a lazy person when it came to outfits.
"No! That's the worst combination ever!" Lily shrieked as she stared at Lea wearing black jeans with a short wintery yellow dress.
"What? It looks fine." Lea rolled her eyes. "Get me some clothes then, don't just wait there, staring!" Lily rushed to Lea's closet and took a hold of anything that'd look nice. She chose an in-between-knee-and-feet dress with embroidery. She smiled at her sister, "How about this?" Lea agreed. Lea was going to her first day of spring camp and she was getting late; she was going to be away for three weeks.
Meanwhile, downstairs, Layla had come down stairs for breakfast. Luke, Layla, mom, dad, and Louis were completely ready for breakfast. "How much more longer till the two come down?" Louis groaned, "I'm starving!"

Why are you writing only?
Because I want to.
Can I please write? I have a lot of stuff to write too.
I'm going to write, now. Get lost.
I'm going to go sleep, it's eleven o'clock anyways.

The family had finished eating their breakfast and everyone went their own ways. Dad to work. Lea to camp. Luke to park. Layla to her friend's birthday party. Louis to campus. Lily to park. And, mom to kitchen. To clean up.
Before dad went to work, he had to first drop Lea off for camp. It was a three hour drive.
Luke went to the park and coincidentally, he saw Ashley with Andrealama. He sneaked behind the slide, stealthily. He eavesdropped on their conversation.
"I still don't understand how you came back!" That was Andrealama.
"Really? I told you so many times! What part don't you understand?" Ashley giggled.
"Everything!" Andrealama said. That was when Luke heard a whoosh. He looked around and saw Lily walking towards him. He flew to her and smacked his hand over her mouth. His sister bit him and was about to smack him on the head when Ashley said hi.
Luke groaned. "Ugh."
"What are you doing here?" she waved Andri over. Andri glared at Lily, which made her cower behind her brother.
"Andri! That's not nice!" Ashley scolded.
"Are you older?" Luke asked, curious. He was shifted from one foot to the other. He loose jeans made a 'shhh' noise. Ashley nodded. "Of course, I'm four years older."
"You're in grade nine?" Luke asked which was replied by a nod from both the A sisters. "Nice." he nodded and smiled in his head, knowing that she was going to be in his grade next year.
"You're gonna be in grade ten next year?" Lily asked meekly. Ashley nodded.
"Well, are we going to get to the real conversation now, or what?" Andri growled, flicking her blond hair behind her back, narrowing her eyes at Lily.
"Why do you keep glaring at Lily?" Luke growled back.
"She's my ex-friend. My. Enemy." Andri said pointing out her finger and stabbing it in the air towards Luke. Luke looked at Lily and saw a tear slip down. Even though she always protected him and stood up for him it was time that he give her his payment.
"Oh really? Well maybe you guys still would've been friends if YOU hadn't listened to the darn fake stuff Emalia said! And, maybe, you could've listened to what Lily wanted to talk to you about! Maybe, you would have still been friends!" he was getting so annoyed now. He looked at Andri, she had a shocked look on her face. She looked... guilty, regretful and sad. Luke stormed away, dragging Lily behind him.
In the meantime, Layla was at her friends birthday party, they were having a blast! They'd had cake, pizza, gift opening and games! Layla's friend, Enchanter, was busy buzzing around, making everyone have a fun time. It was almost the end of the party. Some of Enchanter's friends were sleeping over, like Layla, Jilly, Yin, and Kim.
Meanwhile, all the way across town, Louis was at his campus. He had forgotten to get a few of his books that he had to study. He buzzed in and out of his dorm room trying to figure out where he had left his book. He turned around to look at his dorm mate.
"You did something to it, didn't you, bro?" Louis said flatly.
"Nuh-uh. I cross my heart, I did not do anything." Louis's dorm mate, Gabe, said.
"C'mon, dude! I swear you had it last time I was at campus!" Louis was getting annoyed. He had a short temper.
"I put it back on your desk, in the red binder. Check again, dumbo." Gabe snickered. Louis flew to his wooden desk to see if what his mate said was true. He flipped through his red binder and Voila! he had found it. He scowled at Gabe and stormed out of the dorm hall. He flew all the way back home in the bus. Once he arrived, mom asked him to help her clean up the house a bit. He found an excuse and said he was supposed to study.
"Okay, but once you're done, please help me." mom begged. More like, ordered.
Lily and Luke were in the living room, talking. About how Andri abandoned them to figure out how to return the Forbidden Book Of Magic and to apologize to Her Majesty.
"Luke, what if we-" she cut herself off because Louis flopped onto the couch and started dozing off. "Louis! Get up! You just woke up." Lily scowled and Louis, out of annoyance, flew to his room.
"So what were you saying?" Luke asked his younger sister.
"I was saying that what if we return the Forbidden Book Of Magic the way we stole it?"
"Are you kidding me? Have you even seen the Paper yet? It's all everyone is obsessed with, they want to find out who stole it and punish those people!" Luke freaked out. His sister was acting like the Witch in town. Acting like a risky brat.
"We should at least try!" Lily's eyes wandered to the clock. "We should do it today. It's only ten o'clock, right now."
Luke sighed, "I guess you're right."
