“I want everyone to go except for me, Sam, and Lila. I’m appointing Ana Hopespark as team leader. I’ll be communicating with you via commlink.” Luna tossed Ana a commlink. “Any questions?” she asked.
I do, Ana thought, WHY IN EMBER CITY AM I A LEADER?
Before she could say this, however, Sam began having a nervous break down. The pressure was probably getting to him.
Instead of going to No Man's Landing, the class gathered around Sam, Luna, and Lila.
“Hey, Luna, what’s with the hat?" asked Snoelle, "Don’t you think something that heavy could have caused him to faint?”
"I thought you were supposed to go to the Landing!" said Luna, sounding annoyed. She glanced at Ana, wondering why she hadn't gone there.
"I- I can't be a leader, Luna!" Ana cried, "I don't even know where the Landing is! This is the first time I've ever been to Aethasia in the first place! I've never even seen fog before! I can't do this!"
Ana turned to Snoelle, the brave, confident, popular girl, "I think . . . I think she should lead instead." Ana whispered, her face reddening in shame.
