Chapter Four! It should be longer this time. Enjoy!
It wasnt as bad as I’d been expecting.
My parents remained blissfully oblivious to the alien amalgam in their basement, and I remained free to search for the spells I needed to help Kevin. Some of them had been successful, which was more than I’d been hoping for this early. Kevin had learned to be patient, and I got to the point where I even considered him my friend. It’s strange how harboring a fugitive alien in your basement for a while will change your outlook on life.
The trouble came a few weeks in.
I came home from school whistling- I was sure that after two consecutive misses, the spellchart I had picked up today was the right one. Kevin would be happy to know I wouldn’t be singing his flesh off tonight.
