Elijah Marcus O'Hare was found guilty for his crimes thanks to the evidence I'd acquired. I don't know how long he got exactly but I didn't care. They talked to Luke Mathews too, but there were no charges they could hold against him. Oliver is still doing his sentence- he sent me a letter of apology as part of a programme he's doing but I hadn't even opened it. I plan to never see him or Eli ever again.
Living at Mathew's proved to be entertaining. It was just me and him. He was almost always working but I hardly noticed. Tyler was with me most days and he stayed over on weekends- in a spare room, of course. It was some of the best days of my life. I had no worries or problems since there was no America or Eli. It felt so strange to have no care in the world.
However, we were both due to head back at school soon enough...
"I prefer doing school work here," I sulked, crossing arms over my chest as I sat on the edge of my bed.
"This has been fun, I agree. We need to do so much more work though, De. This was always temporary until you got better," Tyler explained. He sat beside me, arm wrapping around and pulling me closer.
"I'm still ill, look!" I pulled my top up a bit to reveal where I'd been shot. There was only a scar and reddening now but I hoped that just maybe it got me my way.
"I'm sure you'll cope," He said with a chuckle, kissing my forehead.
"Devon!" I almost jumped at the voice before I found myself grinning from ear to ear, looking for who it was that had spoken.
Ari ran at me then, grinning widely. "America didn't want you, I see," She teased as she pulled back, inspecting to see if I was okay.
"I'm fine," I said as I noticed the look before smirking slightly. "Heck, America couldn't handle me."
She hugged me again, laughing to herself. "Hug time!" A voice called out. We stumbled back then when we were more or less glomped.
"Jackson, you are not normal," I said, rolling my eyes when I caught sight of the boy's curly hair.
"I saw an opportunity and I took it," Jackson replied, pulling away and giving us his best mischievous grin. He glanced at me before speaking then, "Good to see you back to start this term."
"C'mon De," Tyler said. He was back at my side with tickets in his hand.
"Right." I nodded, pulling the pink suitcase along as we boarded the train that would take us to St Flamel's.
"You have to tell me everything," Ari almost begged.
I rolled my eyes, laughing. Of course I'd tell her because up until now it had been kept a secret. It felt like it had all happened to someone else, anyway. Right now I was busy concentrating on what was to come. I didn't know if I was looking forward to it. Surely I'd have a relaxing time now, right?
I doubted that. I mean, I'm Devon O'Hare and my life seems to be adventure after adventure.
