“What you mean you let them go?! Lucas, I thought I told you specifically that I wanted Landon and Riley in your grasp as soon as you saw them!” Frustrated, Logan picked up Lucas from the collar of his shirt.
“Sir, I have Landon right at my grasp. I can feel it!” I looked at the strange looking man that was standing close to Logan. He saw Riley! He put him down and looked at him.
“This has nothing to do with your group Lucas. This has to do with Riley remember? I must get it before she turns seventeen! Do you want to end up like the soldiers that I brought along to get the girl?”
I gulped and stood up. “You won’t kill her will you?”
They both turned to look at me. Lucas chuckled sickly, but Logan stopped him.
Riley's POVChapter 9: The Decision“Landon! No, get away!” I flinched when I woke up to see Landon staring at me. He had his hand on my cheek, but I pushed it away. “What? What happened?” He backed away and for the first time, he looked terrified. I scrambled to my feet and looked around. It had been days since I had my last dream, however, this one was horrid. We were still in the forest where I saw Lucas and his group. Jack decided to travel in the woods to be safe since Lucas worked for Logan. The morning was harsh with fog and cold air. I knew it was just a dream, but it felt so real.“Why did you do that? I told you to stop! And you charged at me anyway!” I slammed my fists into his chest. It felt like stone, but I didn’t care. He looked shocked so he let me hit him un
I couldn’t believe how much time had passed since yesterday. Nobody dared to speak much unless it was important, and we traveled all day yesterday without stopping. My legs ached from riding the horse because I wasn’t going to be carried by him anymore after that kiss. Even thinking about it felt painful. Gabe looked at me in sympathy a few times after he saw me flinch from pains and aches, but I kept looking straight ahead. “Okay, we’re here I believe.” Jack looked around as he dismounted his horse. I looked around and all I saw were trees and flying leaves. This couldn’t be it.Gabe dismounted and looked around also, but in disappointment. “This is it? It can’t be! Where’s all the magic?” He walked around the small area."Oh, we’re here.” Landon walked further into the area and pressed against the air. &ld
I didn’t sleep that night. My mind went crazy with the things I learned the other day. As I listened to the night’s song, I could hear Andrew snoring lightly and Landon pacing outside of my tent. How was I going to avoid my feelings with him when he was in love with me? I pushed that thought aside and thought about Robin for the rest of the night. Oh, how I missed him. If I thought hard enough, I could see him smiling at me with his warm brown eyes. He got his eyes from mom. The thought soothed me for a few moments until I could see the sun slowly rising. The sun’s beams glowed through my tent like a warm welcome to the day, but it didn’t feel that way. It felt like my personal prison burning a hole in my flesh. Nothing seemed to be helping me anymore. I pulled the door to the tent aside to see Landon sitting in front of a fire he must have made. It looked like he was cooking something with his hand because it was in the fire without any problems. I w
Chapter 12: The ControlLogan had Lucas by his collar in the air enraged again. “You imbecile! You almost lost my chances to have the power that she possesses. All I asked for is for you to do is make my plan follow through, not kill her! I swear to you if she dies, you will too, mark my words!” He threw him to the ground and stared at him. Lucas looked terrified, but patient. “Master don’t worry your plan will work! The boy that I have will be bait to lure her in without force. Just like you predicted. I just…lost control for a second. She will survive the wolf stopped me in time.” He pointed at the body that was lying on the ground. This wasn’t the boy that I saw in the vision. I looked at Logan and his expression changed. I knew this expression well. It was the look he gives me before he passes a nigh
Hayden sat next to me smiling. I smiled back. This had to be a dream. I saw him dead in his own home. He leaned in to kiss me, but he stopped. His face turned white, and he pointed at something behind me. I turned and saw the cloaked man standing a few feet from me. I grabbed Hayden’s hand, but he didn’t grab back. I turned and saw him still. I touched his face and realized it had turned into polished stone. I quickly turned back at the cloaked man.“You turn Hayden back right now!” I said, but he just laughed.“You have t-,” he stopped talking and turned around. There was nothing there, but he seemed startled. Suddenly, the room changed into a gentle meadow. I could see Robin on the other side.“Oh, Robin! You’re okay!” I ran to him, but he stopped me. “No time! Riley, you can’t believe an
I ran after him, but I wasn’t fast enough to catch him. Fortunately, Landon could run faster than all of us and caught him with one hand. Jack stopped struggling and went almost limp. I couldn’t help the sympathy that overwhelmed me, but my anger still boiled inside me. I had enough of secrets. I just found out that my own mom had to keep secrets from me. I walked towards Jack and stared at him. He wasn’t crying, but his eyes were glassy. He looked at me with a look that I didn’t recognize. It wasn’t hatred or sadness. My expression faded into a puzzled look. I looked down to the ground.“You have a lot of explaining to do if you want to figure all this out with me by your side. I will now stay with all these secrets,” I looked up and saw that Landon let him go and Jack was standing close to me shaking. He nodded and his expression changed into the normal expression Jack always had, but a small smile was placed with it.&
Robin's POV"Please let me go! They will worry about me!” They all laughed at him and shoved him next to me. He was crying and holding his hand that was wrapped in a white cloth. He tried to get up, but I pulled him down again.“Trust me, you don’t want to run. They will hurt you in a way you didn’t know possible,” I let him go and he cried even harder. He looked at me and his eyes widened.“A-are you R-Robin?” he sniffled out and calmed a little. I looked at him confused.“Yes, but how do you know that? Were you with Riley? Is she ok?” I spoke fast. I was excited to talk to someone who saw her. He smiled slightly and wiped the tears from his eyes.“Yes, I was with Riley and I’m not sure if she’s ok. She was screaming before I got kidnapped. Landon went to go get her because Jack was not around. I hope she’s okay,
Riley's POV“I swear! I can smell him Jack! Please let me investigate!” Andrew pleaded almost sounding like he was whining like a dog. I peeked through the tent door and saw Andrew shaking furiously. I would have gone out there, but I was still not allowed to leave the tent. Jack had his arms folded in argument and was shaking his head. Andrew was angry and eager. I could see it in his body language. I could see Landon in the corner of my eye and saw no expression on his face. He was completely blank which really bothered me.“Absolutely out of the question, it could be a trap since you can’t hear his thoughts!” Jack practically screamed at him, and Andrew looked like he was about to change. Then, I heard a light whimper coming from behind my tent and light growling. I immediately stormed out of the tent and that caught both Jack and Andrew’s attention. They called my name, but I paid no attention. I looked b
