Abigail let out a laugh and I turned towards her, weapon ready. Anger pulsed through my veins. She had tried to kill the people that she had spent the last ten years looking after. Kids she was supposed to care about. Cold spots appeared on my skin, turning the area to become black. My body was transforming into my demon form. I fought against it. If the demon inside won, instinct would take over. I gritted my teeth, willing myself to stay human. Losing control wasn’t an option. “I’m not going to let you get away with this?” Abigail rolled her eyes. “With what?” I glared at her in silence. Part of me, the demon, wanted to rip her into pieces for what she’s done, but my logical part knew we needed her if we were to figure out a way to get Mark and Sky’s magic back. Sh
I woke up a few hours later from Cassie tossing and turning. It looked like she was having a nightmare. I gently shook her awake. It took her a second to come to, when she did, she looked at me with worried eyes. "Leah's very scared, she's in a dark room and her magic does not seem to work. I told her that we would come rescue her soon." “And we will,” I said as I gave her a reassuring hug. After we had got out of bed and I had sorted myself out, the sun was setting. It was time to get everyone gathered and go over the almost non-existing plan one more time. There was an empty feeling in the pit of my stomach. Would we be able to get to Leah and rescue her? I really hoped so. I teleported myself and Cassie to the cabin where Mark, Seth and Sky had been staying. We went over the plan one last time. The wolves woul
I walked over to Cassie and gave her a kiss on the forehead. She stirred and opened her eyes to meet my gaze. "What did Freya say? Does she know where Leah is? Cassie asked, chewing her lip. "She said that she was in between." Her hand went to the necklace. "But how will we find her?" "Freya said to follow our hearts and use our connection to Leah." Cassie frowned at me. "That doesn't really make sense." "But you are related." Sky let out a yawn from the other side of the sofa. We must have woken her up. I looked over at Sky with a raised eyebrow. Did Sky know something I didn’t? "Does that make a difference?”
When I arrived at the cabin, several wolves were there. They stopped howling when they saw me. I turned to the shifter closest to me. “What’s going on?” “Something’s wrong. Mark and Seth are here...” As he spoke Mark walked out from the cabin with the Alpha. Mark approached me with a stooped posture. His eyebrows were drawn together, his lips curled and his face pale. My stomach turned into knots and I took a deep breath to steady my racing heart. “What’s wrong?” I shook my head internally. If anything had happened to Leah, it would be on me. I let her go back against my better judgement. Mark swallowed and met my gaze, his eyes haunted. “Leah’s gone. I got home and she wasn’t in the house. When I asked Abigail about it,
I woke up to the smell of food sometime in the late afternoon. After I walked downstairs, I found Cassie and Sky cooking dinner. I stood at a distance and watched them for a while. It looked like Cassie was teaching Sky how to make pancakes. After we had eaten, Sky asked for a scrying bowl. "I thought you didn't have any magic?" She gave me a sad smile. "I don't, but I promised Leaf I would let her know that we had arrived safely." I gave her an understanding look. “I’m sorry I wont be able to help you. I don’t have the ability to scry.” Cassie perked up. “But I do.” she pressed her lips together, a slight blush on her cheeks. “It’s very new, so I don't know if I will be able to get it to work, but I'm willing to give it a go."
When we got to the house, I left Leah with Sky to go and check on Cassie. I was excited to tell her what we had discovered. As I made my way over to the cabin the sky had started to brighten, given way for a new dawn. I expected Cassie to be asleep, but when I walked inside the cabin, I saw that she was playing cards with some of the wolves. I approached her and gave her a kiss. "How did it go? Where's Leah?" Cassie asked, biting her lip. "She's fine, she's in the house with Sky." Cassie bit her lip. "Who's Sky?" I squeezed her shoulder. "It's a long story, I will tell you on the way back." She nodded and stood up from the chair. I thanked the wolves for keeping Cassie safe, before taking her hand. While we made our way
The middle-aged woman stopped in front of us. "Welcome to the house of the hidden, I'm Leaf." There was a moment of silence as she studied us before she waved her hand, removing the concealing spell that had been placed over the house. Several teenagers appeared in the room. A few cast us a curious look as they walked out of the room to leave us alone with Leaf. "Why are you hiding out here, instead of being in the village?" I asked. "Isn't that the question," Leaf said, giving me a sad smile. “However the more urgent question would be why are you here? You are clearly not from the village yourself.” A feeling that she knew who we were entered my mind. I looked her over, something about her felt familiar and my gut insti
Leah turned up a few hours later. She told us Mark and Seth were going to stay at home and hopefully that would keep Abigail from becoming suspicious. It meant that the wolves would have to look over Cassie without Mark, however he had already told them to meet us at the cabin. I left Leah in the house while I teleported Cassie to the cabin. It didn't have any electricity, so I lit up a few candles and waited for the wolves to turn up. I didn't have to wait long. After I had made sure that they were happy to watch over Cassie, I teleported back to Leah. "Are you ready for this?" I asked as I grabbed her hand. "As ready as can be" she said before I teleported us to the city and the Whitelock industry building. When we arrived in the alleyway, the streets were almost e
I enjoyed my flight, knowing that Cassie was safe in my house with Leah protecting her. It made me feel less worried, especially after the defensive display of magic that Leah had manifested by instinct when we were sparring. I knew she still felt bad about it, but in all honesty, it was nothing. If I had been prepared for it, I would have been able to deflect it. My fighting skills went way beyond some elemental magic. There had been a war in the supernatural community. Freya had tried to solve it in a peaceful way for many centuries. She was a strong believer that everyone, no matter their origin, should be able to co-exist and live peacefully amongst each other, and amongst humans if we so wished. Being raised by Freya had its advantages and I had seen first-hand the beauty of different species living together in harmony. Freya's place, or more correctly,
