The rest of the school year goes by.
Edie and Emily continue working with magic. Emily gets her metal-manipulation from the blue rose and spends almost a week abandoning the rest of her magic practice just to play with it delightedly. Edie works up to keeping all three non-black roses that they have duplicates of in at all times. She practices enough with the blue rose to pick another kind of magic, and goes with repairing things. Emily discovers the ability to rearrange her petalsuit at will, which she takes less advantage of than she'd like to if they weren't being discreet. They tell their parents.
Summer rolls around. Classes let out.
So, Emily emails the Canadians, our mom actually owns a huge-ass house in Westchester County--she basically hates it, but she says we can stay there for the summer if we want to practice magic in without having to worry about being discreet or getting seen. Wanna stay with us?
