Outside Reading Homework Section #2 post A and B

Quote: "Maybe you should slow down, so I can catch you (page 106)." The significance of this quote said by Seth is that he likes Aislinn and wants to be more than just friends with her. He means that she should slow down, as in not trying to always run away from him, and then they could be more.

Omnipresent (page 100) - presence in all places at the same time
Whim (page 103) - a sudden desire


In Wicked Lovely, not much has changed since the first section, but we can tell that the characters are getting closer and they have more to do with each other. I’ve learned that Keenan is called the Summer King, and that it is very out of the ordinary for someone on the faerie court to follow one specific person, which is why Aislinn is very concerned that she is being followed by Donia. I think that I would be very concerned also if I were being followed by a group of faeries that only a random few people could see. I would have done the same thing that Aislinn did and tell a really close friend, it would just make me feel a lot better and like I wasn’t alone and like I could turn to someone if I needed and not need to keep secrets. Aislinn also keeps a few secrets from her grandmother, who she lives with, and I think that I would have done the same if I was in her position because I usually tend to keep issues and most everything to myself, but if a friend was in on the issue then I would be comfortable going to them and telling them what’s going on rather than my parents. On page ___, Aislinn is just coming home from a long day after she got attacked by humans and then saved by the faerie, and her grandmother is very good at seeing that something is wrong and asked what happened and Aislinn just said that two faeries were following her and that everything was just fine otherwise and that she wanted to try to figure out what they wanted from her. Her grandmother was at first very nervous and said that she planned to take her out of school and home school her and basically put her on lock-down, but then to Aislinn’s relief, she said that it was okay and to just be very careful and to still abide by the three rules. Even though Aislinn knew that she would need to tell her grandmother eventually, she couldn’t do it now and she wasn’t going to.
