||Personality||
Matthew is a rather in touch with his feminine side. Not in the flamboyant, in love with shopping, and whores around. More in the needs attention, likes to go on dates, and doesn't have sex on the first date time. He is very in touch with his emotions to the point that he tends to attract more female than male friends. The only problem with being as emotional as he is. Assholes take advantage of his feelings. They mess with him. Use him. Discard him. In that order. Unfortunately Matthew is also rather trusting. He has been hurt more than enough times.

He is very caring and compassionate when it comes to things he loves. Like his music or his friends. Matthew spends many hours a day talking to his friends, planning his day with them, or doing something with music. When he is alone in his room, he usually is playing guitar or drum set. He will randomly sing around his house and he will sing to his baby sister when she needs someone to sing to her.

Matthew has a problem with people that lie to him or confuse him. He doesn't go back to people that lie to him the first time. He learns his lesson about them and tries to move on. Another wall gets built up and he continues on with his day. Matt does have a serious problem with those that confuse him. It's when they confuse his emotions. If he hates them one day and loves them the next that is when he confronts them. He isn't a afraid to get in a confrontation because of how he feels. Matthew would prefer to avoid it all together though.

Besides his emotional and feminine side, he loves to have fun. Matthew likes performing at parties, hanging out, and causing a bit of trouble. Not enough to get him in too much trouble, but enough to make life interesting.

||History||
Matthew Able Jacker. Born eighteen years ago to a Mr. Micheal Jacker and a Mrs. Amanda Jacker. They were a very unusual couple in the neighborhood they were in. Everyone around them seemed to be conservative Catholics while they were liberal atheists. During the neighborhood discussion meeting or school board sessions, they seemed to have their opinion disregarded. They had no problem with boys and girls going to the same school. They didn't have a problem with single mothers attending PTA meetings without the presence of a male guardian. Unfortunately Matthew was raised was raised up in this neighborhood. At least through his middle school years.

At an early age he figured out that he was into the same gender. It wasn't hard to figure out. Girls to him were icky when he thought about holding their hands. But he would hold any boys hand any day. It was problem for him during school. He was bullied for a long time. It wasn't just name calling. He had a lot of calls home about fights he had been in. He took the time out of his day when he wasn't being bullied to practice with music. It was a way of releasing in his feelings in a way that people thought was cool. He learned to sing, play the guitar, and play the drums. When he got a baby sister, he happily would play for her when ever she pointed to the guitar.

The end of eighth grade was the final straw fro the Jacker family. Matthew had been in more than enough fights and the parents had a problem with the way the school administrators were handling it. But the thing that got him out of school was when he discovered his ability. He got into a fight and ended up poisoning a kids drink. The kid was sent to the hospital and pumped. Everyone blamed Matt and his parents defended him through the expulsion. So he went to a different school and got a better reputation. Matthew the musician. He likes the friends here much better, but he still fears people bullying him.

So begins...

Ophelia was practically having a party now. Talia and Cami were here and Nathan was on his way. To say that around other people would not be good. Especially if it caught on. "Let me check if Nathan is still coming." They might as well make this a sleepover. It would be easier on all of them. Then to go home late and then try to wake up for school the next day. Quickly, she typed out a message to her boyfriend.
[To: Nathan♥]
[MSG: If you are on your way. Lyles will let you in.]

The message sent and Lia tuned in one time to here her friend talk about the essay she had just finished. In the trio, Ophelia was glad, Cami was the one to care about school. Kept the others on track. "It's probably perfect. Much better than mine probably." It's not that Ophelia wasn't smart, she just didn't see the need to put the extra effort into stuff she didn't care about. Like English, History, Science, Gym. Stuff like that wasn't interesting to Ophelia. But she was a wiz at math. Something about numbers intrigued her. People say she is crazy, but Ophelia just calls it a passion. Like her passion for chocolate. Speaking of Chocolate, Lyles walked into the room. "Miss Landers. I believe Sir Nathan just pulled up. Will he be staying over as well?" Lyles knew Ophelia so well. "Probably. Let Nathan in please and hand him a box of snickers to bring up to the room, please?" Lyles nodded and left the room. "Is there a fifty percent chance either of you will skip school and come with me the animal shelter?" Ophelia wanted another cat, but she needed someone else to help her judge which one deserves to come home with Lia.

Greyson just smiled at his best friend and his daughter, soon reminded by why he had chosen Remi to be the godfather. It was like as soon as he held Kelsey, he was a whole different person. It was ridiculously adorable. As they left to her room, he got up and cleaned up the child things. He placed her coloring books back on the shelf. Her box of crayons were put in the top drawer. her princess costumes were put in the toy chest. And his coffee cup was washed and put away. By that time, Remi graced the father with his presence. "I invite you over and my daughter gets a better greeting. I'm hurt." He teased. Walking around Remi, he headed back to the living room. Greyson sat down on the couch and left room for Remi. "Alright what excuse do you have to explain your tardiness this time?" Greyson had a bright smile on his face. It was always good to see Remi.

Evangeline laid down on her bed and stared at her phone laying on the charger. Then she looked over at her window. Big enough to crawl out of and close enough to the ground to not break her dancer legs. Evie looked back at her phone and thought about her brother who was just down the steps. He would throw an absolute fit if he caught her sneaking out. And would possibly call the police if Evie was just missing. It was already late. Maybe she could have someone come and rescue her from her over protective brother. First she texted Willow.
[To: Firebird]
[MSG: Save. Me. Eric is driving me insane. x.x]

Next was Ezzie. Brother number two. She didn't even know if he was in the country. But maybe he could call Eric and calm his craziness.
[To: Ezzie]
[MSG: Bro #1 is being over protective again. Help.]


Eric stayed in the living room for a little while still trying to figure out what to do with his baby sister. She was driving him insane with her curfew thing. After turning off the tv and lights, he headed to his bedroom. He slowed down by Evie's room. He could hear her bed creaking, so he knew she was in there. He went up to his own room and shut the door. But as soon as he shut the door someone rang the doorbell. He checked the time and prayed that it was important. Eric got up and went back down to the living room. Flipping the lights back one he opened the door. There was a giant smile on his face. "Ezra!" He gave his friend a quick hug before pulling him inside. "When did you get back?"

Matthew was strumming the strings of his guitar for his four year old sister. She had just barged into his room and pointed to the guitar. Even though she could speak, she didn't need to. It was clear what she wanted. Madeline sat as his feet and he just continued to play. He finished playing and his sister clapped. "Encore." Matthew laughed. "No one. It is like pass your bed time. So shoo." He waved his hand. She pouted, but stood up. She gave Matthew a kiss on the cheek and then scurried off to bed. Matt just shook his head. He loved his baby sister, but she was always breaking rules in the house. Matthew put the guitar down and pulled his phone out. Talia was busy with her other friends, but he was bored.
[To: Talia]
[MSG: Entertain me Talia.]

That was all he sent. Either she would or she wouldn't.

Ophelia really didn't believe that Camilla would skip school for anything. Despite how close they were, she doesn't skip school. Tali on the other hand would love to skip school. The brunette feels the same way. It's not like she was completely failing that she needed to be at school all day and all the time. "Good. I need someone to help me find a friend for Marbles." Then Nathan happily walked in with Ophelia's favorite chocolate. She was tad bit more happy to see the bag of snickers than she was to see her own boyfriend. But she was happy her boyfriend was here. "Don't disrespect my snickers Nate." She said jokingly after taking her bag. She opened it and pulled out one of the mini sized snickers. Ophelia could never get enough of these. She would end up eating the whole bag. "Well I was thinking we turn this into a sleepover. And Talia and I are skipping school to buy my another kitty." That was pretty much the gist of the conversation. Leaving out the parts about Camilla going to school. No one had to say it to know that she was going to school. Ophelia pulled out another mini snickers to eat. She shifted a bit so that she was resting against Nathan. "But would you all like dinner. I don't know if you have eaten."



Image

Remi gave Greyson the greeting he should have deserved. They mess around like this all the time. Just for the fact that they are best friends and now everything about each other. He could tell that Remi was only playing around. But Greyson liked to bother him about stuff like this anyway. It was funny and started up sometimes silly arguments. Remi seemed to be waiting for some kind of approval and Greyson just looked over him. "I will accept that for now. But you are now being forced to cuddle cause the greeting was above and beyond." Greyson laughed a little and shifted. He rested his head in Remi's lap. Greyson then thought about tomorrow. He needed to work, but he wanted Kelsey to stay here and play around. "Will Talia baby sit for me tomorrow?". They weren't the best of friends, but Greyson knew how Talia was when it came to school. Anything else was better.

Eric was so happy to Ezra. He missed his best friend. He knows that Eva missed him as well, but Eric missed him more. Of course this wasn't a competition. "I understand you missed me and all. But you could have gone home first. It's not like I was going anywhere." Eric laughed a little as Ezra put his stuff down. Ezra seemed to have gifts for him and Eva. "Aww you shouldn't have. Eva! Erza has gifts!" Just then a little blonde walked into the house. He smiled at her. Delaney was younger than Eric by a couple years, but she still made his heart soar. But he was a bit upset with the fact that Eva was leaving late. But it was Delaney. He trusted her with Eva.



Image

Evangeline wasn't hearing back from Willow or Ezra. This was just great. Trapped in her room. Her over protective brother barring the windows and calling any body withing a five mile radius that Eva was off limits. Well Eric wasn't doing any of that, but that is how Eva felt. Then a savior texted her. It was Delaney taking her to Willow's. It was perfect. She needed this. Evangeline stood up and ran to the bathroom to clean up a little. But then she heard her brother called to her. Ezra was in the house! Everything seemed to be going her way. She skipped down the steps and wrapped her arms around her second brother. "Hey Ezzie. Thanks for the gift. Talk to you later." She smiled took the box. "I will be with Delaney the whole time. Don't wait up. I will be fine. Call me if you get worried." She practically pushed Delaney out the house. The longer she was there, the more she would hear about Eric's protective rules. "Delaney thank you. I love you." She was so grateful.



Image

Matthew relaxed on his bed and read the message from Talia. She was absolutely useless as a best friend at the moment. But Matty wasn't going to blow up her phone to get entertainment. Maybe he could text Remi. But if he got rejected by him too then he was going to be really upset about being bored. So he decided to text Remi.
[To: Remi]
[MSG: Talia is busy. Entertain me.]

After the message was sent he grabbed a book and started to read.

Camila sat and watched quietly, just as she always did, and Nathan entered the room. She gave him the smallest of smiles and let her gaze fall on the bed sheets. She was always shy around boys, no matter who they were. It's like she became a completely different person when she was around then versus when she was surrounded by the girlfriends. But Ophelia and Talia knew this, and they never really questioned why she would suddenly become too quiet when a boy came around. They almost scared her.
Talia on the other hand couldn't be more open around boys. Especially Nathan since she knew him well enough to be herself around him. She pushed herself up and sat on the bed, facing Ophelia and her man candy and rolled her eyes. "I don't understand how someone can dislike snickers" she protested, taking a small chocolate out of the bag and handing one to Camila who took it gratefully. "If I were Lia I would have dumped you just for that" she teased, slipping the small piece of chocolate into her mouth. Talia was never the romance, crush having type. In fact, she believed that she'd be much happier on her own than when having to deal with a man. "Speaking of breaking up, Cami I heard Grayson is single!" she teased, almost laughing when her friend's cheeks slowly transformed into small tomatoes.
"O-oh, is he?" Camila stuttered, wondering just how much Talia knew. If she didn't know for sure than she would certainly know now thanks to her reaction, as well as the other two. Cami could not be more embarrassed. She know Ophelia and Nathan were both friends with the subject of the conversation, and not that they'd tell but if he were to find out Cami would have to move out of the country.

Remi chuckled as his friend shifted into a laying position and used his lap as a pillow. He heard his phone buzz and pulled it out, forcing himself not to smile when he saw the name.
[To Mattie]
[From Remi]
[MSG: Is that all I'm good for? Back up entertainment?]

He sent the message and turned his attention back to his friend. [Color=turquoise ]"You sure are needy today"[/color] he joked as he ran a hand through Gray's hair. "And stingy. I think I deserve a little more than just cuddling." Remi said this as a joke, but he slowly leaned down until their lips were almost touching. "Don't you think?". Despite the obvious attraction between the two, Grayson and Remi had never crossed the friendship line. They never really talked about why, and despite Remi's constant flirting and Grayson ' s occasional flirting back, they were strictly best friends. That didn't mean Remi couldn't tease hin a little, right? The male continued to move closer, fully knowing that they would end up kissing within seconds, but when that didn't happen he opened his eyes in confusion, only to be more confused. Last thing he remembered he was in his best friend's living room about to kiss, and now he was in a dark empty room, alone. Was he losing his mind?

Image

Ezra smiled when he said Eva's happy face and handed her the gift, happily returning the hug. "Drive responsibly!" he called out as the girls left the house. He sighed and turned his attention back to his friend with a subtle smirk. "I see nothing here has changed" he teased, gesturing slightly towards the door. Ever since he can remember, his best friend had been crushing on this girl, Delaney and by what he could see, she liked him as well. But nothing ever happened, and Ezra was becoming impatient with his friend. "When are you going to man up and say something, amigo?" he said as he patted his friend's shoulder. "You're a sexy chunk of chocolate and she obviously likes it" he said as he took a seat, expecting the usual laughter to come from his friend, but there was nothing but silence. He looked up in hopes he hadn't offended him and his eyes widened like a pair of dinner plates. "What the'?!" he quickly got to his feet and looked around the empty room. It was most definitely not Eric's house.

Ophelia was glad that one of the people she hangs out with appreciates the taste of snickers. There was a reason she kept Talia around. Besides for how awesome she is in general. Candy is a big deal. Then of course Talia through in how she felt about Nathan not liking the marvelous chocolate. "Talia is exaggerating. Chocolate is not worth losing all this." Ophelia gestured to all of Nathan when she said that. Of course the girls don't really get to see all of that, but if they did they would understand. The brunette put another snickers in her mouth. And then Talia started to tease Camilla about Greyson. Who was another really cute guy. "He has been single for a while now. Maybe I could put a good word in for you." Ophelia winked at Cami and ate another snickers. Her best friend resembled a tomato and it was fantastic. Of course Ophelia would never actually do anything that would cause a panic attack. Calling it a quits with a snickers she folded up the bag and leaned across of the bed away from Nathan to put them on the night stand. But when she went to look at her friends they weren't there.

Ophelia raised an eyebrow. The room was dimly lit and cold. She didn't recognize this place at all and it was quite frustrating. No one kidnapped her. She wasn't dreaming. And now of her friends abilities cause illusions. But something was clearly going on.



Image
Image

Greyson was needy every day. It was just how their friendship worked. He asked for things and sometimes Remi would provide. IT was a rather stable relationship. They could be dating if they didn't have an unspoken rule about strictly best friends. They were attracted to each other and flirted quite often. Remi more than Greyson did though. But neither of them have tried to make a move. They had kept it likes it. But Remi leaned down and it seemed that the first move was being made. But then after a while of waiting, Greyson realized that Remi was gone. He sat up and looked around. "Remi?" Not only was Remi missing he was no longer in his own home. He was somewhere completely brand new. Then he got worried. "Kelsey!" He called. "Here, Daddy." He saw her in the corner, completely exhausted and confused. He went over to her and hugged her tight.



Image
Image

Eric was a bit nervous to make moves on Delaney. It was a delicate process. At least that is what he thought. How was he supposed to walk up to the beautiful blonde and just ask her out. He shook his head and laughed a little. When he turned around though, Ezra was no longer there. Eric raised an eyebrow. "Aren't you too old to play hide and seek Ezra?" He was waiting for a response, but nothing. He turned around again, but he was even more confused. He was no longer in his house. He was in some strange room. "What the..." And then he started to worry about his friend and then his sister. And it didn't help that when he turned around that he saw Delaney. So they were in the same situation. But Eva was with her. Eric did not want to get mad at Delaney. He liked her too much, but she was here and Eva wasn't with her. "Do you know what's going on?"



Image
Image

Evangeline couldn't be more grateful to Delaney. She waited their patiently for her friend to return with the bike, but she didn't. In fact she wasn't there at all. This was bad. They were two young girls outside alone. Something awful could have happened to her. Eric would not be happy. Eva turned around to head back inside, but she was no longer outside in her front yard. She was in a room. It looked like a mental patient belonged here. She was so confused. Eva touched the wall and then slowly backed herself into another person. When she turned around to see who the person was she almost screamed. Eva slapped her hands over her mouth and backed herself into a corner. She was in an empty room with Damian. Of all the people to be trapped with. Evangeline could have cried right there, but she didn't. She just stared at him. Terrified.



Image
Image

Matthew got the text message and felt bad. He didn't mean to make Remi feel like second when he wasn't. He was just trying to explain his situation. He was about to respond, but his sister started crying in the next room. He got up and jogged over to her. Matt laid in bed with her and sung a lullaby to get her to go back to sleep. It wasn't long before she drifted off again. The blonde started to head back to his room, but then it got weird. He wasn't in his room. Nor his hallway. Nor his house. This was someplace new and unfamiliar. He briefly glanced around, but it seemed that he was alone. At least for a moment. He turned and saw a confused Remi. Despite their situation he smiled. "I was going to text you back."

Camila wasn't sure how she felt about Nathan knowing who she had a crush on, specially since he and Grayson were friends. She felt almost…guilty. She didn't know why. She had long since given up on having anything more than a friendship with Nathan. The final stamp on that was when he and Ophelia started dating. No guy would ever come between her and her friends, ever. Still there was that lingering feeling. Cami ' s red cheeks only worsened when Ophelia offered to put in a good word for her with Grayson. She would die if he ever found out how she felt. She looked down at the bed in embarrassment, but something looked different. It wasn't the bed anymore, it was a concrete floor. And she most definitely was not in Ophelia house. She quickly jumped to her feet and looked around terrified. Was this some kind of prank? No, her friend's wouldn't pull this on her, specially knowing how much of a scaredy cat she could be. So who was responsible? She took a few cautious yes forward but stopped when she heard a very familiar voice followed by a not so familiar and innocent one. It was Grayson, no mistaking it. As if things weren't already bad enough, now she was in an unknown place, alone with the guy she had a huge crush on and could hardly speak when around him. Cami felt her heart beat triple, but she continued walking, clearing her throat quietly. "u-um" she wasn't sure what to say, but maybe Grayson had an idea of what was going on.

Image
Image

Talia loved teasing her friend about her crush, but she was rather exhausted. She layed back down on the bed and closed her eyes as the others continued talking, and then everything just went silent. Had she missed something? Talia opened her eyes and immediately pushed herself up into a sitting position. She had no idea where she was but it sure as hell wasn't Ophelia's house anymore. "What the-? Guys? This isn't funny! I'm going to murder you all as soon as I figure out what the hell is going on!" she called out to absolutely no one. She looked around the room and saw many things, but an exit was not one of them. She grunted and began walking along the the walls of the entire space until she came upon something interesting. A single piece of paper placed on to of an empty desk. She picked it up to find a single word written on it. "Bookshelf?". She looked around and saw a small bookshelf in the far right corner of the room. Perhaps there was an explanation to what was going on hidden somewhere in all those pages. She put the paper in the pocket and began to investigate.

Image
Image

Remi was almost convinced that Grayson was playing a prank on him, but everything was far too elaborate for a prank. He slow began walking, looking for a way out, or in, but there was nothing. The suddenly and familiar voice that came from behind him made him pause. He turned around to see who he expected and sighed. Out of all the people he could be stuck in a room with, and it had to be Mathew. Not that he disliked Mathew. In fact, it was quite the opposite. Remi had started to like him so much that he couldn't seem to function properly around him. It's as if all of a sudden he forgot how to flirt or even act casual so he resorted to teasing and empty insults. With a huff, Remi folded his hands over his chest and walked closer to the boy, look down into his eyes. "Okay Mattie you have 5 seconds to explain what's going on" he stated coldly. He didn't think Mathew actually knew or had anything to do with the situation. He seemed to be as confused by it all as Remi was, but since his nerves were getting the best of him, he didn't have a clue what to say. The whole thing made him uncomfortable, and Remi was very rarely uncomfortable with anything.

Image
Image

Ezra stood quietly and watched as a small and very beautiful girl frantically searched for someone named Lucas. Had she been there when he first popped in? It was possible, since he was kind of in a haze. Finally a littke voice came out of nowhere and by the girl's reaction, he guessed that was Lucas. He watched quietly, not wanting to interrupt, and busied himself with studying the room until she spoke and demanded to know who he was. Ezra lifted a brow, unsure of how to respond. Under regular circumstances he would have smiled flirtatiously and quickly introduced himself, but the situation now was beyond regular. Still, seeing as they were stuck in the same room with no way out, he thought they should at least know each other's names. "Ezra Vargas" he said with a soft smile and playfully shook the boy's small hand. "You must be Lucas" he deducted. "Has anyone told you you're very handsome?". Ezra had always loved kids, maybe because he practically raised his sisters, but kids always seemed to get attached to him as well. Turning his attention from the boy he looked at the unknown girl and offered her a faint smile. "And you are?". Ezra was thankful for all the time his friends spent helping him with his English. Now his accent, though still very obvious, was at least understandable.

Ophelia didn't have much an idea how to get out of the room either. There wasn't much in the room they could use as an escape. And they had no idea what was behind the walls or what was keeping them together. It was quite sticky situation the couple got themselves in. The thought of blowing out the walls wasn't a horrible idea. It was all they had right now. Nathan did bring up the ceiling, but whatever was up their could fall on them so that wouldn't work either. That could prove to be even more dangerous. Her boyfriend held her hand and gave her the option of the walls or the ground. In his free hand, he created his ball of destruction. A smile formed on her face. Ophelia couldn't help, but find power rather attractive on her boyfriend. Thinking over the two options in her head, she came up one. "Ground."

Using her free hand she created a fireball. It was a around the same size of Nathan's, but wasn't as spherical. Random chaotic flames would bounce off the ball. Ophelia heated the ball up so that the color went from red to blue. Blue was the hottest flame. If that doesn't get them out, then nothing will. Opehlia combined her ball with Nathan's and then it was released. The ball of destruction made contact with the ground, but didn't cause a hole. Instead it bounced up and hit the ceiling. Ophelia moved closer to Nathan and hid herself in him. The ball just continued to bounce around and Ophelia hoped that it didn't hit them. Ophelia was fireproof, but she could easily be taken out by Nathan's ball.

Greyson set Kelsey down. There didn't seem to be anyone else in here that posed a threat so there was no need to keep her in his arms. Camila looked fine which was good. He didn't know what he would do if she was hurt. He would jump much quicker into finding a way out of here. There was still a rush, but for other reasons. For one he wasn't going to let his daughter stay in this kind of condition much longer. From what he could see, there wasn't much water around. Which means if he was going to have to make water. It would take a tone of energy and if it doesn't work, he would pass out where he stands. Kelsey could restore some of his energy, but not enough to make up for the fact he created an entire tsunami. That is what it will take to break the walls down. "Can you think of any ways out?" He was hoping Camila could come up something better than the idea in his head.

Eric thought it was kind of Delaney to help him shift the walls, but he didn't want her to waste energy. There were no plants in here meaning she would have to pull them from thin air. He could only imagine how tired she would be after creating some plants to help him move a wall. He placed his hands on the wall, palms spread. He rotated his hands so that his fingers were towards each other. The wall was made of material that could be moved. He was shifted stuff like this before. He pressed against the wall, but nothing happened. He couldn't hear a shift in anything. Not even the drop of a pebble. He rotated his hands again so that his fingers were toward the ceiling. He pushed harder and still nothing. "The walls won't move."

Damian was trying to get in her head, but she wouldn't let him. Evangeline couldn't let him get to her. It wouldn't end well for her. “If you want to leave so badly, then why don’t you? I know what you can do.” Eva didn't want to put on a show for him. That was what he wanted. He wanted her to use her abilities, but she didn't want too. Not anymore. Not for him. Anyone but him. Who knows how he would use her powers against her. Damian took another step towards her and she moved back, but she was being blocked by a wall. For a brief moment she thought about running around him, but he was close enough to grab her if she tried. “It’s beautiful, really. The way you can manipulate the air. Powers. Such a destructive thing, for such a pretty girl. Shame. I’d hate to see it be your downfall.” If Eva wasn't scared before she was absolutely terrified now. Damian backed up and hid away back in the corner. Eva just stared at him, but he was giving her the opportunity to break herself out.

She moved off the wall and moved closer to the center of the room. Evangeline took a deep breath and tried not to notice Damian staring at her. Watching. She stared ahead at the wall she wanted to take out. Evie moved her hands behind her to collect most of the air. She didn't take too much so that they could still breath. But it was much harder to breath than before. Lingering for a moment, she glanced over at Damian. He was still watching. Looking back at the wall, she threw her hands forward. The air pushed against the wall, but it didn't move. The wall deflected it and pushed the air right back at Eva. Evangeline was okay with the hit, but she got a bit tired. Despite her silent protest, she dropped to her knees and leaned against the wall.

Remi wasn't hesitating to make it seem like this unfortunate event was Matthew's fault. Matt didn't say anything about it though. He didn't want to upset Remi more than it seem like he was. Silently he put his hand on the wall. Acid secreted from his hand in attempt to melt the rock. Nothing. A sigh escaped him and he just sat down. His back against the wall. There wasn't much else he could do. His abilities limited him there. "it looks like I'm stick with you" Matthew looked up at Remi and then away from him. "Sorry for the inconvenience." he muttered. Now Matthew really wanted to find a way out of here. Remi wasn't very pleasant to be around at the current moment.

Ophelia was completely freaking out. Nathan was covering her and maneuvering them around so that the ball would never have the chance to hit Miss Landers. The ball should have taken out the floor or even the walls. But nothing. Not a single movement. Finalyl the ball dropped and the fire went out. Nathan's part of the ball broke down with flames shooting out of it. Her boyfriend didn't release her until he felt like it was safe to do so. The couple made eye contact. Ophelia's pupils were completely dilated. She was was trying to calm down, but she was having a hard time. Nathan asked if she was okay and she nodded her head. That had almost died just about then. Even if the ball hit Nathan, the flames could have reached Ophelia. "Let's agree to never do that again when we are in a closed space." The brunette was feeling a little bit better, but then something even more unexpected happened. The ground disappeared.

She clutched onto her boyfriend as they fell. Now Ophelia thought she was going to die. The brunette opened her eyes and there seemed to be light at the end of this and before she knew it, they had landed in a very open space. It looked like a ballroom. Ophelia would know. Her parents have dragged to more than enough. She gave a once over of Nathan just to make sure she didn't dig her nails into him. But out of the corner of her eyes she saw a body on the ground. Turning to look at it, she screamed. "Talia!" Ophelia left her boyfriend's side and ran over to her. Tears rolled down her tears immediately as she looked at her best friends wounds. "N-no Talia.." Ophelia's hands were shaking.

Greyson watched Camila. She had an idea and she was ready to get right on it. Kelsey stepped a bit closer to Camila to see exactly what she was doing. "Daddy her ear is to the wall." The father just shook his head and shushed his daughter. "Kelsey. Let her concentrate." He motioned for his daughter to give Camila some space. After a second of waiting nothing happened. Greyson was about to tell Cami that it was okay she didn't have to keep trying. But a silver outline shoved Cami away from the wall and she hit the floor. The outline disappeared and the wall returned to normal. Greyson went to Cami's side and looked over her worriedly. "Please tell me you are alright?" Greyson kept his hands to himself not so that she wouldn't freak out about being touched. Kelsey came over and leaned on her father watching the girl on the floor.

Then there wasn't a floor anymore. Greyson grabbed Kelsey and held Camila as they fell. He was going to make sure that they weren't going to get hurt wherever they landed. The ground was soon beneath again. But they were in a different room. It was larger and had lots of room. Kelsey seemed fine and he checked to make sure Cami was fine. Then he looked over to see Ophelia crying over something. And he instantly recognized the person in her arms. It was Talia. Remi wasn't in sight yet, but he could only imagine what he was going to say when he finds out.



Image

Eric couldn't believe that there was earth that he couldn't move. That would be a story to tell when he finds Eva. He saw how sad Delaney looked. He moved to sit next to her. "It's going to be alright. There has to be a different way out." They had to have missed something. Eric really didn't mind being trapped in here with the blonde. He has been trying to find time to tell her how he feels and what not. And since they were going to be here for a little while why not tell her now. Eric cleared his throat. "Since it seems we will be here for a while, I wanted to um tell you something." He felt like a nervous child. When he went to open his mouth again, the floor disappeared.

Eric grabbed Delaney and held her tight. He didn't want anything bad to happen to her when they landed. The ground came back to them. The room they were in was much bigger and brighter than the one from before. Eric was confused again by the room they were in, but it was the least of his worries. They were out of the dark rook. But he heard someone crying. He turned to see two people he remembered from when he went to high school. Ophelia was the one who was crying. And the person who she was crying over was Remi's little sister. Remi was no where in sight. This made Eric worry about his own little sister.

Evangeline should have moved when Damian approached, but he didn't. She was too tired. Too drained. She used most of her energy to move the air and then the rest of her energy was taken when there wasn't enough air in the room. Too make things worse, her blow attacked her back. No amount of fear could get Eva to move away from her stalker. And she just let him talk to her. Talk about her powers. Talk about her potential. Talk about being her mentor. All Eva could was listen. Eva could tell when he left her again. There wasn't a shadow lingering over her anymore. But she thought about it even when she shouldn't have. Controlling the air was a rather useless power and Damian, who was powerful beyond belief, was offering a chance of a lifetime. Damian was taking advantage of Evangeline right now. He knew he was going to get her to think. He had her used her powers to drain herself out so that she would listen. And she fell for it. Evangeline looked over to say something to Damian, but then the floor disappeared.

She fell through screaming a tad. Eva had wanted to scream since she had first appeared in the room with Damian. What better time to let it out than when she was falling. Then the ground returned. But it was the floor to another room. A much bigger and brighter room. Quickly she spotted Eric and ran over to him. Never had she been so happy to see him. The siblings held each other, but Eric showed Eva what was going on. It was Talia in the arms of Ophelia. This was tragic. Eva stayed near her brother and watched. Still thinking about what Damian had said.



Image

Matthew couldn't tell when Remi was joking or being serious anymore. He seemed so serious before, but when Matty looked at him he seemed genuine in the fact that he didn't mean what he had said. Matthew just nodded to let Remi know that he forgave him. Remi pulled the blonde up claiming to have an idea of some kind. "What is the great idea?" He asked slightly amused to what Remi was going to come up with. But they were interrupted. Remi sensed something and when he screamed Talia, Matty figured something bad happened. He didn't know what to do. They needed to get out of here and find Talia. His best friend needed him. Then the floor disappeared.

Matthew dropped and reached for Remi. He didn't want to lose him in the fall. The last thing he needs to to lose him and Talia. That was all he had right now. It wasn't long before they were in a different room. A much bigger room. With people Matt recognized. But unfortunately the only person he cared about right now was barely moving in Ophelia's arm. Matty ran over there completely silent. He was in partial denial about what he was seeing. Talia was fine earlier today. How could something have happened to her? Tears rolled down his eyes, but he wasn't crying. No sound was escaping him.

Eric sat next to Delaney and she leaned herself against him. She rested her head against his shoulder. The act immediately calmed her. As much as Eric made her nervous, being around him also put her at ease. She was glad she was stuck with him, and not anyone else. She wouldn’t know what she would have done if she was with someone else. Maybe it would be alright. ”Since it seems we will be in here for a while, I wanted to um tell you something.” Delaney continued to look straight ahead. ”What is it?” As soon as she finished asking, the ground beneath them game out, and Delaney was crushed against Eric’s chest. She immediately wrapped her arms around him and braced herself.

The short distance had surprised Delaney, and she didn’t hurt at all. Maybe Eric had taken the damage. She looked him over quickly. He seemed fine, too. She sighed in relief and turned her head to see others. They were crowded around something, rather, someone. She craned her head until she saw who it was. Her hands tightened on Eric’s arm and she slowly got to her feet, shaking her head in disbelief. Talia lay there almost lifeless. Delaney needed to do something. but with Talia’s state, she didn’t look like she could swallow anything she could give her. Delaney frowned and stayed by Eric’s side, releasing when Eva joined them. She felt utterly helpless. Especially with people surrounding her, she wouldn’t be able to tend to Talia properly.

A sigh of relief escaped his mouth when she said she was alright. ”Let’s agree to never do again when we are in a closed space.” Nathan laughed and agreed. She was more than okay. She was doing well, given their current situation. It didn’t surprise her though, she was a fighter. She was a free spirit. Nathan was still smiling when the ground gave out beneath them. He quickly kept his hold on Ophelia as they fell, one hand on the back of her head and the other around her back.

Nathan took the impact of the fall for both of them, but it was very light. The landing felt as though he was coming down from jumping, not from falling through a ceiling with his girlfriend on top of him. She stood up and detached herself from him. Nathan remained on the ground, checking his body for any potential bruises or stiffness It may not have hurt, but it could have left some damage. He seemed to be fine. He stood up and finally took in his surroundings. He couldn’t help but stare in disbelief. He had never been a room so nice. It reminded him of Beauty and the Beast, one of the few movies Delaney had forced him to watch when he was not only a child, but during their weekly movies nights. He was still taking in the room when he heard someone crying. He turned his head to see it was Ophelia. He had never seen her cry before, at least not like this. No. This was something different. He immediately rushed over to her. Why was she crying? He didn’t need to ask. He saw as soon as he approached her. Talia lay in her arms, bloody and broken. He lifted a hand to his face and covered his mouth with it. Dear God... He placed his
free hand on Ophelia’s shoulder. He couldn’t do much else to comfort her, not with Talia in her arms.

Then others started arriving. Remi, Matthew, and Cami all approached Talia. Nathan couldn’t look, especially at Cami. It would break his heart to see her cry. Ophelia crying had already done it’s fair share, but Cami could make it worse. He averted his eyes and stared at the dying girl.

Willow watched Ezra allow Lucas to glow. Lucas was completely ecstatic. He could feel the energy surrounding him and squirmed as he struggled to keep his eyes closed. Willow just shook her her slightly and smiled, her thoughts running to what Ezra had said after his embarrassing attempt. A force field. Whatever had brought them together did not want them to leave, or at least break out before something could happen. What, she didn't know. Whatever it be it better not be something bad. She was still groggy and not in the mindset to deal with something bad.

Lucas opened his eyes and smiled with delight. "Oooh, now I'm like you! Mommy, why don't you glow?" Willow places a hand on her son's shoulder and was about to respond when the ground opened up and she was falling. She grabbed for Lucas about the same time Ezra did, reaching him only a second before. However, Ezra was strong and Willow and Lucas both ended up being pulled to him. The three hit the ground and Willow immediately checked Lucas. He happily stood up and walked to the other side of her, wanting her to get up. She shook her head slightly and got up. They had just plummeted from a ceiling and Lucas wasn't the least bit phased about it. Lucas tugged on her hand and he pointed to the small cluster of people in the center of the elaborate ballroom. It took her a few seconds to process what she was seeing, and when it did, she pressed her son's face into her leg and ran her fingers through his hair. She watched Remi cradle Talia in his arms and Willow couldn't help but want to comfort him. She was close with Remi. He was one of her best friends, and she had shared a decent amount of her time with Talia because of it. Why Talia, of all people? Someone so innocent and kind. The thought of someone hurting her made Willow sick. She closed her eyes and tried to suppress her anger. Unforgivable.

He had gotten to Eva, he could tell. She looked up at him after a while, ready to speak. This was it. She would accept and he would be one step closer to getting his final prize. He almost smiled, but it hadn't been confirmed. No need to celebrate just yet. She opened her mouth to speak, and then they were falling. Damian immediately changed the force of gravity. He outstretched his hand nonchalantly and leased the force so he lightly landed on the ground. He watched as Eva hit the ground and he smirked. If she was with him, she would know how to make split second decisions, how to maneuver her powers in such away that her reactions with them came as naturally as the instinct to scream. He place his feet lightly on the floor and then proceeded to walk to the darkest corner of the room, which was rather difficult considering he was now in a brightly lit, extravagant ballroom. He leaned against the wall causally and watched as everyone cried or watched. He recognized the girl as Talia. Yes, he knew her, along with everyone in the room. One of the perks from being an outcast was the way he could observe and intake information. Talia: close friends to Ophelia, Cami, and Matthew. Sister of Remi. Even if he hadn't know, it wasn't hard to guess. They were the most emotional ones out of everyone, and the resemblance between she and her brother was difficult to miss. He watched as Remi held her and Damian tilted his chin up slightly.

Damian remembered observing Talia, much as he now did with Eva. He would watch her, follow her, see what she could do. He knew she could manipulate magma. It was a marvelous gift, really. Pity. Just like Eva. If each knew how to use their powers they wouldn't need to worry about being hurt. Damian put his chin back down and glanced at Eva.

Celeste uncrossed her legs and recrossed them with her right over her left. She was waiting. Waiting for the saviors to stop trying to break out of the rooms they were in. Some of them realized that they were being closed in by a force field. Other people just kept trying to get out. Celeste couldn't hear what they were saying. The field was keeping her from interfering. But their was one child she couldn't see. Talia. And that worried Celeste, but the field had a mind of its own. When they were ready, the field would let them go. Celeste stood up to pace back and forth. Her outfit not complying with the way she was walking. Using both hands, she held it away from her feet so tha she could pace in peace. And finally they all disappeared into the ballroom. It must have been time for Celeste to approach them. To explain why they were all here. It was quite exciting and nerve racking at the same time. It has been centuries since the last time she had to explain to a group of teenagers why they were special. With a wave of her hand she was at the entrance of the ballroom. She was expecting confused children, but they were all sad. Then she remembered Talia. The girl she couldn't see while she was waiting. Her eyes grew wide and she made her way over to where some were gathered.

Celeste didn't want to break up the mourning period, but if Talia was hurt without Celeste knowing they didn't have time for mourning. Without a word, she bent down and picked the poor child up in her arms. She treated all these children like they were her babies and her child was hurt. Muttering a few words, Talia disappeared from Celeste's arms. She turned to face the crowd. "I sent her to the infirmary. She should recover to full health." Celeste already had someone in critical condition the elements haven't even started training. Kain is much stronger. He already knows who is gifted. They needed to get started right away. Sooner the better. "I guess I should introduce myself." Celeste turned around to face the teenagers. It would have been better if they all had smiles on their faces.

"My name is Celeste. I am in charge of informing you all about what is going on." Celeste watched them for a moment and didn't give them time to question her. "You were all hand picked by celestial beings to carry on celestial duties on earth. Including stopping Lord Kain." She looked down at the ground and then back up. "Kain...he is the one that hurt your friend. I didn't know that he would figured you all out by now." Celeste cleared her throat. There was no time to get in her feelings. "You all will have to train and master your abilities in order to defeat him." Her explanation was almost over. "Remi. Ezra. Eric. Greyson. You four will lead this group. Any further questions will need to be directed toward your personal muses. I will be around. Please don't let Kain hurt another one of you." Celeste didn't want to see another one of her children get hurt.

She disappeared leaving behind some of the twinkling stars. It was time to get serious.

Ophelia allowed Remi to take Talia from her arms. Cami and Matthew joined her knelt down beside her. She felt as though she couldn't breathe. Who could do this to such a wonderful person? This wasn't fair. Nathan was close by in what felt like an attempt to comfort her, but she wasn't sad anymore. Shew as angry. Furious even. Ophelia's blood was boiling and she could feel her temperature rising. The unfortunate part about being of fire, when she is angry her abilities take over. They usually just make her hotter. It was why when Ophelia was angry something was usually set on fire. But she didn't say anything. The tears that were on her cheeks evaporated. The brunette knew she needed to calm down. She couldn't get someone hurt from how angry she was at this current moment. That was when someone just appeared and collected Talia. Ophelia was on her feet in an instant and before she could say anything Talia vanished. Miss Landers was about to scream, but she explained where she was. She couldn't really get mad over that.

Ophelia stayed near Nathan, but didn't touch him. She was still burning hot and she didn't want to burn him on accident. She tried her best to listen as Celeste spoke about what was going on. Why they were here. What the plan was. But only one name mattered. Kain. The bastard that hurt her friend. A person that needed to die. A tiny fire ball formed in Ophelia's hand. She wasn't creating it, it was just from thinking about the things she was going to do to Kain. He was at the top of her destroy list. When Celeste disappeared, Ophelia turned to Nathan. "We have to find him right now. I have to kill him."



Image
Image

Greyson didn't know what to do or how to help Remi. His sister was on the verge of death and he couldn't bring him back. The mood of the room was depressing. He wished their was something he could do to make it better. But that would mean going back in time to protect Talia. Only problem with that is that he can't go back in time. Then a random collected Talia from Remi. Greyson didn't really think that was a good plan, but as she explained where she was sending Talia he thought otherwise. Celeste seemed to really care about Talia. As if she raised her. As Celeste continued to speak, Grey made his way towards his best friend. It was just to keep him from doing something stupid to himself or to someone else.

Kelsey was standing very close to her father, afraid to look at her godfather. He was so distraught that it made her sad to look at him. Greyson looked at Celeste when she called his name. He couldn't believe that he was a leader. The only thing he has ever been in charge of was his daughter and sometimes Remi depending on the state hew as in. Right now would be one of those times. Celeste left and his focus was back on his best friend. "Remi?"



Image
Image
Image
Image

Eric and Evangeline felt bad for the fact they weren't as sad as the others. They felt awful that Remi almost lost a sister, but they weren't that close to her or her family. But Eric could only imagine what it would be like if the same thing happened to Evangeline. So they just kept quiet and watched. Eric saw Delaney just stand still so he left his sisters side to comfort his blonde crush. He knew that she was used to helping people, but this was one person she couldn't help. Eva went over to Willow. She knew that Willow was friends with Talia and she could only imagine was going through her head. Lucas seemed confused and sad for the fact that his mother was affected by the situation. Eva ran her fingers through his hair and stood close to Willow.

There was someone that collected Talia and sent her to the infirmary. Then she explained everything. From their abilities to Lord Kain. Eva thought it was nice that she and her friends weren't the only ones with this burden. Then Eric's name was mentioned to be leader. Eric didn't mind of course, but Eva did. That gave him more reason to control her life. She would love to have complained to Celeste, but she was gone. Eric looked over Delaney. "Are you alright?" He was genuinely concerned for her. Eva didn't say anything to Willow. She was waiting for her best friend to speak first.



Image
Image

There was a sliver of hope in Matt's eyes when Remi started to speak to Talia. But was quickly replaced with sadness when she didn't respond. Not even a twitch of the finger. The blonde boy just continued to cry silently. His best friend was hurt and he didn't know what to do. It was like he forgot how to function in life. He wasn't one to cry in front of people, but he didn't care. They were unimportant. Talia was just taken from him. Someone came and took Talia. Matty couldn't even move to see who it was. All she said was that Talia was in the infirmary to recover. But Matty didn't think that was enough. He needed his best friend now.

Celeste spoke about their abilities and what was going on. The name Lord Kain was thrown out there and it stuck with Matthew. Kain ruined him. Messed with Talia. And indirectly got to Remi. He was so hurt and angry. Matthew just kept quiet. He brought his knees to chest and hid his face. He didn't want to talk to anyone. He didn't want to be bothered. Matt wanted Talia back. Celeste disappeared and he continued to sit there. Completely devastated.

The only thing in her head was the different ways she could rip Kain limb from limb. Each way resulted in burning his the pieces so that there was no way they could come back together. She could only imagine that by the way Remi was screaming, he would assist her in her quest. Camila and Matt seemed quite useless at the moment. She wouldn't ask for either of their help anyway. The last thing she would need is for them to complain about the murder of someone. And she thought that Nathan, her boyfriend, would support her decision one hundred percent. Absolutely not. That was all she heard from him. There was probably a really good reason behind why Ophelia shouldn't go out and kill the person that practically killed Talia. But she wasn't listening. Her boyfriend had just told her no. If Nathan was trying to calm her down it wasn't working at the moment. "But I-I have too...Talia...and Kain..." Ophelia wasn't making any sense.

Ophelia and Nathan made eye contact as he spoke for a second time. ”We already have someone on the verge of dying. We don’t need another person in that situation.” He wasn't messing around. The fireball in her hand disappeared and she slowly started to calm down. If she didn't care so much about him, she would have just taken him down as well. Ophelia would get her revenge, but not right now like Nathan said. If something bad happened to her it would just be bad. Two people down. Her body temperature lowered and returned to its normal state. Ophelia looked down at the ground before reaching out and hugging him. She wouldn't have hugged him if she thought she would hurt him. The brunette had a head ache and was actually quite tired. Being furious really took a toll on her. An involuntary yawn escaped her.


Image
Image

Greyson did not know how to calm down Remi. He exploded the moment Celeste left. In all his years of knowing Remi, he had never see him get so angry. It was like he was possessed by something of pure rage. Kelsey was absolutely terrified. But she didn't have anyone to turn too. Her babysitter was whisked off to the infirmary. "Remi you need to relax. You can't just venture off and kill a galactic Lord." Greyson was good with speaking reason, but he didn't think reason would work right now. He could blast Remi with a wave of cold water. That should shock him. Or just make it worse. Willow came over and seemed to try and help Greyson with the angry Remi situation. Greyson thought about kissing Greyson for a moment when whatever mind trick Willow did clearly didn't work. But she had a different idea.

The smack was rather loud. That should be pretty efficient in getting Remi out of the state he was in. Kelsey hid her face in her father's leg as they just sat an waited. "Really Willow. Violence?" Greyson was only teasing to lighten the mood and unfreak out his daughter.


Image

Eric didn't know what to make of this entire situation. Everyone was reaction differently to the news that Celeste had just given them. It was late and this was a lot of information to take in. Maybe it was time everyone just went to sleep. Especially the ones who were deeply affected by Talia. He would tell them that, but he was going to hold off on that for a little while. “Correct me if I’m wrong, but we’ve been chosen among millions of others, to fight against some evil galactic lord and face death while doing so?” If there was a better non crazy way of explaining all that he would explain it that way. But the way Delaney explained it was exactly what was going on. "I know its weird. But it might not be coincidence that only we have abilities." Eric just thought they were lucky or had an extra chromosome somewhere. But that didn't seem to be the case.

Evangeline didn't know what to do with Willow. She was angry. So angry. Even Lucas was a bit afraid. She left him with Evie when she went to go and deal with Remi. She looked at Lucas with a small smile before squatting. Evangeline wanted to take his mind away from what was going on at the current moment in time. "Did you practice the dance moves I taught you last time I saw you?" Lucas smiled wide and nodded. Pulling out her phone she started playing a song on a low level. She didn't need everyone to pay attention. Then she started dancing with Lucas.


Image
Image

Matthew heard Remi. Screaming and throwing a fit. He wanted to get up and help him. Help him feel better. Tell him everything was going to be alright, but he didn't believe it himself. Talia was gone. She wasn't dead, but it felt like she was. Celeste whisked her away and Matthew was left with nothing. Just a bunch of teenagers who were supposed to defeat the person that harmed his best friend. Although his crush was in need, Matthew just couldn't move. If his guitar was here, he wouldn't even play it. There was a loud smack and Remi just stopped. The situation must have been handled. Tears were forming in Matt's eyes again so he stood up and walked away. Matthew left the group to find the exit.

He needed to clear his head. There was so much going on at the moment. Lord Kain. No Talia. Training. Saving people. Matthew did not sign up for this. Not all in one day. He just kept walking, getting lost in some unknown hallway. But it felt nice not to be where Talia was left to die. the blonde wrapped his arms around himself and tried not to cry. Crying would not bring his Talia back. So he started to sing instead. "Are you, are you, Coming to the tree? They strung up a man They say who murdered three." He wiped the tears falling from his face. "Strange things did happen here. No stranger would it be. If we met at midnight. In the hanging tree."

Camila could hardly contains her tears, not that she was even trying. The thought of Talia dying and not ever getting to see or speak to her or even be teased by her ever again made her tears come even faster. Ezra held her tightly, as if she would break is he let her go, and they stayed that way for several long minutes. Cami could hear Remi yelling, and it only made things worse. She could only imagine how he felt. If she felt this horrible and Talia wasn’t even her family, she could only imagine what was going through her brother’s mind right now. He had every right to yell and be angry and cry. Finally, Cami gathered the courage to stand up straight and wiped her tears. Her eyes were puffy, as if she had been crying all night, and her nose a bit red.

Ezra couldn’t help but to be worried about her. ”She’ll be okay...”. Though he said, he didn’t know for sure himself. The damage done to Talia’s body was the work of a savage, and odds of her surviving something so brutal were almost none. He couldn't say this to Cami, of course. He had to stay positive for her sake, and everyone else that needed it. It seemed like Talia’s brother would be needing it the most. Ezra watched as the scene played out in front of him. Willow’s hand smacked into Remi’s face and he immediately stopped. He watched as Remi’s expression changed from rage to shock to completely devastated. Ezra wasn’t sure how close they were, but judging by the look on Willow’s face, she must have been close to Talia as well. Ezra stayed near Camila. She needed him, even if he couldn’t do much. He slowly led her back to where everyone was gathered, keeping an arm around her shoulders.

Cami was exhausted. All the crying had taken a big toll on her. The sounds of despair and rage in the room hadn’t helped the situation. She quietly followed Ezra to the rest of the group, keeping her head down. She only glanced up for a minute and saw Ophelia in Nathan’s arms. Cami’s legs felt weak. She eventually made eye contact with her best friend and her stomach sunk. It was like witnessing the crime all over again. Cami could feel the lump in her throat slowly forming again.

Remi’s heart was beating so fast he was on the verge of a heart attack. He couldn’t see or think clearly, all he cared about was being with his sister. He needed to see her. What if she didn’t make it. What if she died, and wasn’t there to say goodbye? The energy inside Remi’s body only grew. He could hear WIllow and Greyson attempting to calm him down, but it was useless. He was...there were no words to describe how he was feeling. He never imagine he could feel so many negative things all at once. He could feel another scream building in his throat, and that’s when he felt a hand hit his face. He blinked a few times, a couple of tears rolling down his face, and stared at willow with round eyes. The negative energy in his body slowly began to settle down, causing the red glow to dissapear and his eyes to return to their usual color. A sudden wave of exhaustion washed over him, and he wanted nothing more than to let himself drop on the floor and lay there for a while. Maybe forever. He let out a shaky sigh and looked at the ground. Greyson was still beside him, and he commented on Willow’s aggressive way of getting his attention, but he was grateful. He wiped his eyes with the back of his hand and looked up at her, muttering a thank you that was almost too quiet to hear. He then quietly turned around, making eye contact with his best friend for a brief moment before placing a hand on his shoulder and giving him a silent thank you. He didn’t have to say anything out loud. Greyson would just know. He looked down at Kelsey, she was terrified, and it was mostly his fault. He thought it best not to approach her now. He’d apologize to his god-daughter later. He continued walking, stuffing his hands in his pockets, and stepped out the first door he found. He caught a glimpse of Matty on the way out, his eyes began to swell again but he quickly blinked them away. He had to get out. He had to get away from everything for a while. He kept walking, he didn’t know where he was going, but he didn’t care.

Ophelia was happy to be embraced by someone. She definitely needed the hug. Nathan always seemed to calm her down in her ugliest moment. She would have to remember to thank him when they weren't surrounded by so many people. But he released her when he saw how tired she was. It was emotional exhaustion. But tired was still tired. He sounded like her parent when he suggested that she went to bed, but she only nodded in agreement. Sleep was necessary. In the morning she would try and find the infirmary where Talia is. Then she will tell her all the violent thoughts she has of Kain. Maybe Talia would wake up if Ophelia went in full detail about what she wanted to do to the bastard. Another yawn escaped her as she ran her fingers through her hair. Just then she made eye contact with her other best friend. Someone that had also just lost Talia. Camila definitely needed a hug. Breaking away from Nathan completely she wrapped her arms around Cami and held her tight. Ophelia wasn't going to cry, but she would hold Cami for as long as she needed. Ophelia may not seem like she cares about people, but when it comes to those she is close too she would do anything for them. She ran her fingers through her best friends hair. "Nathan was going to help me look for somewhere to sleep. You should do the same." Her voice hushed. Sleeping this off would be good for both of them.



Image

Greyson was glad that he hadn't seen the inside of Remi's head. Whatever was in there had compelled Willow to smack him. if he was in there he might have been to scared to try anything. Grey couldn't have been more grateful to have his bestfriend back. Or near back. In his eyes he was grateful, but he was still mourning. He just let Remi walk out. There was no point in making him stay and get over it. In the morning he would try to talk to him. But right now he just needed some time to himself. Greyson watched Willow walk back over to her group of people and he looked down at his daughter. Although still terrified, she was tired. The father picked up Kelsey. "Let's fine somewhere to sleep." he whispered to her. He quickly left the bedroom in search of somewhere for him and his daughter to sleep. The mansion was big and he wasn't in the mood to get lost. Greyson just started checking every room until he found one that was good enough to sleep in.



Image

Eric could tell that this was just too much to handle at this current moment in time. For anyone. He watched Matthew, Remi, and Greyson walk out of here. They must have been looking for somewhere to sleep this off. To think about it. Eric should be doing the same. Delaney was tired as well. She thought it would be rude to leave and find somewhere to sleep. Although he wanted to spend more time with her, sleep was more important than his love life. He shook his head. "No. You should get some sleep." He said to her. Looking around the room, he just saw a bunch of sad and mourning teenagers. So he decided to address the group. "How about he all get some sleep. It's clearly been a long day and there is stuff we all need to think over." He wasn't telling them to go to sleep. Eric was just suggesting that they did. His attention went back to Delaney. "I will look with you." Eric would like to sleep as well.



Image

Evangeline turned the volume up to the music after the slap. She wanted to keep Lucas' attention on her not on what her mother was doing. The plan was working. He was having fun and Evie was being a good temporary babysitter. Even though she was laughing with him she was concerned for Willow. She was mourning and angry. That wasn't a very good thing for someone like her. With the ability to tap into minds she could only imagine what was going through Willow's. It must be a wreck. Especially after dealing with Remi. Once that situation ceased, Willow came over to where they were. Eva stopped the dance session and pointed to Lucas' mother. He smiled and hugged her tight. It was like he hadn't seen her four weeks. The dancer smiled and stood up straight. She heard her brother suggest that everyone get some sleep. She rolled her eyes. Eric was already implementing his leadership duties. But he wasn't wrong. Sleep was going to be the only part of their days that make sense. "I will go with you to find a room." She said to her best friend.



Image
Image

Matthew finished his song, but he didn't stop wandering. He didn't want to go back to the group of people in the ballroom. He stopped looking for the exit and he was trying to find the infirmary. Matt just got lost. He didn't know where to go so he just let his feet drag him around. His thoughts went to Remi as he walked around. Matt couldn't imagine what he was thinking. He could potentially lose a sister. Matthew then felt bad for not being there for dealing with his rampage. But Matt was almost afraid to be yelled at. He was so fragile at this point. Eventually he would apologize to Remi for not being there. But not right now. Not today. Just then he crashed into another person. The dazed blonde stumbled back and looked at who it was. It was Remi. The person he was just thinking about. Eye contact was made, but Matthew didn't say anything. He just looked back down at the ground.

Camila cried for a little while as her and Ophelia hugged. The pyromaniac had run out of tears, but she was still a bit sad for what had happened to Talia. And she was also tired. Just physically and emotionally exhausted from today's events. A nap was definitely needed. Eric, one of the leaders, also said that everyone should get some sleep. Discussing this tomorrow was a given. Ophelia would try and find Talia tomorrow. She would have too. She needed reassurance to know that her best friend hadn't just died. Ophelia pulled away from her other best friend, but they lingered near each other for a moment. It was almost like a silent 'it's going to be okay' moment. "We will talk tomorrow." Ophelia said with a tiny smile. Then she went back over to her boyfriend. She reached and held his hand tight. When it seemed like he was ready to go, she walked with him to find some place to sleep. She was so grateful to have him here. She didn't know what she would do if he wasn't. Ophelia might have gone to get herself killed. "Can you sleep with me tonight?" The brunette honestly meant sleep this time. Tonight she just didn't want to be alone. Her head was resting against Nathan's shoulder as she waited for an answer. She wouldn't be upset if he said no.



Image
Image

Everyone seemed in agreement with Eric's idea to get some sleep. Even his sister who was clearly annoyed with the idea of her brother in charge. He would talk to her tomorrow. Delaney was ready to get some shut eye and Eric was ready to help. They left the ballroom and immediately got lost. The entire thing was like a maze. Every hallway led to another even more confusing hallway. Delaney was just as confused. He nodded at her enormous comment. "Come on. Bedrooms have to be somewhere." Subconsciously he reached out for Delaney's hand. He held it as they continued walking around. It was something he does when he doesn't know where he is and he doesn't want to lose a person. Since he already had her hand, he didn't feel the need to let it go.



Image
Image

Evangeline was tired. It was official. She was dead tired. Sleep was necessary and she was about to just get a piggy back ride from her brother. But he disappeared. Ezra was going with Cami. Greyson was no where in sight. And Willow needed to carry Lucas. Evie would get one from Damian, but she was afraid that he would take her somewhere else. Also she is still afraid of him. She would just walk. It won't be that bad. Willow collected her son and told Evie to follow. The girl complied and walked with her to find a room somewhere. If they didn't find a room soon, her legs were going to give out. "This place should have come with a map."



Image
Image

Matthew and Remi stood in silence. The smaller blonde didn't know what to say to Remi. He had left during his time of need and he wasn't in the mood to be flirty. But then Matt was pulled into a tight hug. For a moment he didn't hug back almost numb to the embrace. But soon he started to break down again. As tears welled in his eyes, his body began to tremble. And before Matt knew it, he was crying in his crushes arms. He wrapped his arms around Remi and just cried. He had only ever cried in front of his family and Talia. He was so set on never crying in front of Remi and yet here he was. Being absolutely pathetic, but he couldn't stop.

Camila was physically and mentally exhausted. Ophelia and her parted ways and Camila turned back to Ezra. "Let's try to find a place to sleep like Eric said" he suggested, and Cami just nodded. A bed and a good night's sleep was much needed right now. She would probably be up early in the morning to try to find the where Talia was being kept. Even if her friend was still unconscious and couldn't talk back, she at least wanted to see her. See that she was still breathing. Cami walked silently alongside Ezra, who kept his gaze straight ahead. He looked deep in thought and Cami didn't want to disturb him. He probably had a lot on his mind. His first day back after almost two years and this is what he comes to. Cami let out a soft sigh, unintentionally catching her cousin's attention.

Ezra kept his gaze on the hallway ahead, glancing to the side from time to time to try to find a good place to stay in. The unknown woman's words kept circling in his head. He was to be one of the leaders. He had never done anything of the sort. Not to mention that it was mow up to him and the other four guys to find find this Kain character and make him pay for what he had done. Honestly though, Ezra had no idea how they would go about doing that. The woman said herself that Kain was very powerful, and they were just a bunch of teens. The odds of finding and beating him were looking pretty slim. Deep in his thoughts he heard a sigh come from Cami and he looked down at her in concern. "Are you okay?". It was a dumb question, but he needed to ask anyway. She just nodded and rested her head on his arm. He smiled softly and slid an arm around her shoulders. Finally they found a room. There was another empty room right next door, but Cami asked if he could stay with her until she fell asleep, so if course he agreed. He didn't necessarily want to be alone either.

Image

Remi wasn't at all surprised when Mathew started crying in his arms. Something about it just felt…right. As if this was the only place he was allowed to cry, in Remi's arms. Remi himself was out of tears. He wasn't sad anymore, not one bit. He was angry, frustrated but mostly just exhausted. His short rampage earlier took a lot out of him, and now he just wanted to rest. He ran a hand throw the smaller blonde's hair and let him cry as much as he needed. He didn't say anything. He didn't think he needed to, he just held him tightly. He couldn't say everything was going to be okay, because he wasn't too sure of that himself. After several minutes, Matt card down the slightest bit. Remi let out an involuntary yawn and knew it was time for bed, but he couldn't just leave the other. "I'll help you find somewhere to sleep" he suggested as he slowly broke the hug, taking hold of his hand instead. He continued walking in the same direction he had been before until he found an empty room. It looked comfortable, and the bed was big enough for two. "I'll stay until you fall asleep…if you want" he suggested awkwardly as he rubbed the back of his neck. Perhaps he shouldn't have asked at all. Maybe all that Matty needed was to be alone.

6 am || Friday || School Day || Everyone should be waking up or getting ready for school




Image
Image

Light was shining through the window waking up the exhausted brunette. For a while, she did everything in her power to go back to sleep. It had taken her hours to fall asleep in the first place. She just kept thinking about Talia and that made it almost impossible to sleep. Nathan did a wonderful job helping Ophelia sleep. But now it was time to wake up and she wasn't ready. A couple more hours cuddled up with Nathan is all she asks for. Wake up Opehlia.. Her eyes shot open at the voice. It wasn't her own and it sure as hell wasn't Nathan's. She wrote it off as her self conscious trying to get her to get up. Looking over her sleeping boyfriend, she smiled softly as she pressed a soft kiss on his lips. She pushed herself out of the bed and stretched a bit. Good you are up I need to talk to you. Ophelia eyes grew wide and she looked around to see what it was. But she couldn't see it. On your shoulder. Ophelia looked on her shoulder and saw a blue whisp floating on her shoulder. Miss Landers jumped and brushed her shoulders off. That's no way to treat your muse. The whisp appeared right before Ophelia. It was rather small, but it reminded Ophelia of a flame. "Look uh muse, it's too early to deal with you right now. Can you wait until I find a shower?" The muse clearly rolled her eyes and then disappeared. Ophelia ran her fingers through her hair trying to decided if she would wait for Nathan to wake up before going to find a bathroom.



Image

Greyson was happy to give Kelsey to go back to sleep. She was so peaceful in her sleep. It was still a bit too early to wake her up. The better question was why Greyson was awake. Being in this mansion, he didn't have to go to work. Kelsey didn't have school. He would be able to sleep in. But he couldn't go back to sleep. No matter how much he tried. A sigh escaped him and he got up out of the bed. He had managed to find a room with two beds. One for him and one for his daughter. He sat on the edge of his daughter's bed and ran his fingers through her hair. She is so precious! There was a woman with a bright smile and perfectly straight black hair. Greyson was beyond confused to how she even got here or why he was in his room. But he was more concerned for her attention towards his daughter. "Who are you?" He was trying to be as calm as possible. Sorry hunny. I should have introduced myself. I'm your muse. And babysitter. She said walking closer to the bed. The muse ran her fingers through Kelsey's hair. Greyson remembered Celeste saying something about muses. This must be them. Giving her a once over he stood up. "Oh well can you watch her. I want to go find her some food to eat." The muse nodded excitedly. Greyson hesitated for a moment, but then he left to find a kitchen.



Image
Image

Eric rolled over to find that he was in the bed alone. His dream had made it seem like Delaney was with him, but how he was so wrong. He had put the blonde in a different room and left her with a kiss on the forehead. The male sighed and buried his face in the pillow. He wanted to go back to sleep and return to his dream, but he was officially awake. Eric sat up in the bed and looked around in the room. It was rather cozy and homey. But he would rather be back in his own home with his sister Eva. Speaking of Evie it was a school day. Despite their current situation, his dyslexic sibling was going to school. She needed to keep up because catching up wasn't easy. Especially for Eric. He was the one that had to help her. Rolling out of bed he left his room to find the kitchen. He wanted to make her and the others going to school breakfast. On the way he saw Greyson. They both eventually found the kitchen and agreed to make the entire house breakfast.



Image
Image

Evangeline was so tired. And she was hoping to sleep in much later than she did. After staying with Willow for a little while she had dragged herself to the nearest bedroom which happened to be right next to her best friend's room. The tired child rubbed her eyes before sitting up in bed. A yawn escaped her and she looked around. It would have been nice to smell food. Her brother always made food on school mornings. But the mansion was so big that she doubted her brother even found the kitchen. Evangeline laid back down on her bed. Eventually she will be here long enough and she will just miss school all together. Well hello beautiful. Evie turned her head to see someone laying next to her. Evie screamed and the muse slapped a hand over her mouth. She glared at him and he removed his hand. "Four seconds to explain." Evangeline wasn't joking. I'm your muse. She raised an eyebrow and remembered Celeste mentioning muse in her vague speech the other day. Her eyes ran over her muse. He looked older than her. Almost like her brother's age. He had to be at least Damian's height. But he had a much gentler face. "Nice to meet you. Now get off my bed." Evangeline waved her hand, and blew him onto the floor. He fell with a thud and stood up glaring at the one he was supposed to train. But then he just smirked at her. Grabbing Evangeline he threw her over his shoulder, and left the room. "Hey! Put me down! Don't make me bite you!" Her muse chuckled. I don't mind sweetheart. Evangeline just gave up fighting. The muse proceeded to take Evie to the bathroom.



Image
Image

Matthew shifted a bit in his sleep. His sleep was thankfully dreamless. The last thing he needed was a dream about Talia. Or even Remi for the matter. Those two were the only two who were consistently in his dream. But he didn't need to think about them. Not now anyway. Soon Matt's body was trying to wake him up. He had shifted a few more times, but every position was uncomfortable. He tried moving closer to the warm body next to him, but that forced his to wake up. Matthew was wondering why there was a body next to him. Quickly he looked down to see if he had clothes on and sighed in relief when he did. But that didn't explain why Remi was next to him. Sleeping quite peacefully. For a moment, Remi just watched him. He doesn't really get this with Remi. They are usually a bite farther away from each other. Matt looked down and then climbed out of bed. It was nice to be with Remi, but he wasn't really in the mood anymore. To be honest he was expecting Remi to be gone when he woke up. Stretching a bit, Matt left the room to go and find a bathroom.

Ophelia was not in the mood to process her muse. She needed to get showered, dressed, visit Talia, and then argue with Nathan on the unimportance of school. If Miss Landers was to go to school it would be because Camila would need someone to be with her. Ezra couldn't be there in the building. But if Cami didn't need her, Nathan would have to be girlfriendless at school. ”Morning, beautiful.” Speak of the devil. Nathan was awake. Ophelia turned around to face her sleepy boyfriend. She liked his morning voice very much. It was husky and deep. Another benefit to waking up with him. "Hey darling." Gently she ran her fingers through her hair, before she started rocking on her heels. When he got up off the bed, they shared a loving embrace and a kiss. He always knew how to make her morning. Ophelia smiled at him when he asked how she was. "Better." There was still some anger and sadness coursing through her veins. But she would be fine for teh next couple of hours. Granted that is if she doesn't go to school. Speaking of school. "I was actually about to find a bathroom to shower. Want to join me?" She winked playfully. She didn't want Nathan to think that there was anything seriously wrong. So she let him know the only way she knew how.



Image

Image

Greyson wasn't in the slightest worried about Kelsey even though he doesn't know anything about the muse. If Kelsey needed Grey, she would just do what children do best. Slip away. That thought made him chuckle. That was when Eric joined him in the kitchen. Extra help in the kitchen was always nice. Especially since this is a new kitchen and there were way more than two people to feed. Eric just took on the roll of eggs and bacon. It wouldn't take long for them and it would be easier to make a mass supply of those. Greyson was making waffles and pancakes. Kelsey liked pancakes so that was really who he was making them for. Grey and Eric were talking before Ezra joined them. Clearly hungry. "All those cooking shows I have watch were finally coming in handy." Eric joked. Greyson laughed. "That and between the both of us I actually know how to cook." Greyson was only teasing, but it was nice to have something to laugh about. Eric glared playfully at him and then looked at Ezra. "Ezra, could you find fruit some where. Evie is gonna want some." Greyson saw his best friend walk into the room. He looked like he still needed a moment. Greyson just waved at Remi with a small smile. Willow showed up and it seems like she was going to handle it.



Image
Image

Evangeline's muse refused to put her down the entire way to the bathroom. Despite all her protest and kicking. It seemed no one heard her. And if they did, they didn't care. Not that it mattered. If this muse was of Celeste she was safe. But she just didn't like the fact he was carrying her into the bathroom. Finally she was put down and she adjusted her clothes. "That requires dinner and a movie." she muttered. The muse laughed. "Or I tell you my name and I don't tell the world about your dyslexia." Evangeline gasped and just looked at him. He was staring at her with a smile that unfortunately resembled Damian's. He wasn't kidding. She glared at him and then turned on the shower water. As she did that her muse got quite comfortable in the corner of the bathroom. He rested against the wall. "Aren't you going to leave?" He shook his head. "I am progressing our relationship. My name is Air." Evangeline just looked over him. He was just going to sit there. Evie just stepped into the shower and closed the curtain. She threw her clothes out of the shower and then bathed herself. Peaking her head from behind the curtain, Air was still there smiling. "Towel." He threw her one. She dried off, but remained behind the curtain. "Seriously Air get out. I will be fine without you for three seconds!" Air sighed. "Your clothes are folded on the second shelf." He clapped two times and disappeared. When Evangeline thought it was safe, she got out and got dressed.



Image
Image

Matthew was in and out of the bathroom. He had clothes and things waiting for him when he was in there. If he cared, he would have questioned it. But he didn't. Right now he was trying to think of a way to try and get to Talia without having anyone follow him. It was quite selfish, but he wanted alone time with his best friend. Matt walked back to his room and silently hoped that it was empty. He didn't feel like engaging in conversation. Walking inside he saw a small child sitting on his bed. Her smile was bright and her hair was bright red. But when she saw Matt's frown, she frowned as well. "What's the matter, Matty?" Matthew doesn't know this girl. How does she know him. The girl picked up on his confusion. "I'm Poison! A muse from Celeste!" She was very proud of that. Matthew nodded and didn't ask any more question. "I just miss my best friend." Poison seemed to understand. Pushing herself off the bed, she walked over to him. "Well I know where the infirmary is. I can take you, but first..." The girl took Matt's hand and dragged him out of his bedroom. "Find out what smells so good!" Then she just disappeared. Guess that meant Matthew had to find the kitchen. With a sigh, he started to follow the smell of food.

Delaney rummaged through the closet, grimacing slightly as she did so. Many of the clothes weren’t her style. In fact, a few of the dresses hanging to the side scared her. She didn’t want to think about why or for what event her muse had put them in there for her. She didn’t feel like getting ready or going to school. She plucked a pair of jean shorts and a tanktop out of the closet and quickly dressed. She brushed through her hair and met her muse outside. Delaney watched her muse asses her outfit and frown. ”Well someone needs a lesson in fashion. We can do that after school.” Delaney rolled her eyes and asked her muse where the bathroom was. Her muse pointed to a door on her left and Delaney went in to use it before heading to the kitchen.

On the way to the kitchen, Delaney turned to her muse. “So, do you have a name? Or do I have to call you muse?” The muse grinned. “We’re named according to what powers you have, so I’m Plant, which is really unfortunate. Wish you could just manipulate vines. How sick would the name Vine be?” Delaney glared at her muse. “Well sorry for the inconvenience.” Plant laughed and skipped in front of her happily. ”Don’t sweat it. Come on, Eric’s waiting for you.” Her muse turned and wiggled her eyebrows at Delaney before disappearing around the corner. Delaney could feel her cheeks heat up and she looked down at the ground as she kept walking. She thought back to last night when Eric had left her at the door of her room with a kiss on the forehead. She had almost wrapped her arms around him and hugged him, pulled him close to her. Instead she froze and just let him go. Her stomach twisted as she stepped into the kitchen and looked at how many people were already there. The first person she saw in the kitchen was Eric. She ducked her head slightly and heard him ask Ezra to go find fruit. She looked at the two and spoke quickly. ”I can help you find fruit, Ezra. It should be easy enough.” She smiled to herself. She could already feel where the plants in the house were and in such a big house, she didn’t know how Ezra would go about finding fruit. She could tell there were a bunch of fruit trees in the backyard. She knotted her fingers together as she waited.

Nathan was relieved a little when Ophelia said she was better. He knew she must still be upset or angry or both, but her being better than last night was good for him and everyone else. She most likely wouldn’t do or say anything rash regarding the death of the Kain guy, or at least not this early in the morning. He could rest easy for now. Ophelia mentioned a shower and he chuckled. He ran a hand through her hair when it started to fall in front of her face. He remembered they had school and he almost sighed. He would rather stay home with his girlfriend and cuddle and watch movies. He was too mentally exhausted to go about his normal routine and sit in a building with a bunch of people he barely cared about. He would rather stay in the mansion, even though it was still foreign to him. “I’d love to, but with the others around we wouldn’t want to disturb them if they’re sleeping. How about I go to find us something to eat while you get ready? I’ll help you find a bathroom.” He winked when he mentioned disturbing the others and took hold of her hand, walking towards the door. He was glad Ophelia was able to joke with him. Her joking around made him instantly feel better. She must not be as bad as he had thought, but he knew she was still hurt. At least she was trying to lighten the mood. He was grateful for it. As they reached the hallway, he turned to look at her. “Who were you talking to this morning? I woke up to you and another voice, unless that was a dream.” He didn’t think he had dreamt it, but he wasn’t entirely sure. Maybe he had imagined it.

Remi scooped Lucas up in his arms and the child wrapped his arms around the man’s neck. Willow nodded when Remi said he slept, but didn’t elaborate on it. She was glad he had slept. If he had stayed up night pacing the floor or trying to get to his sister, she wouldn’t know how to go about that. Of course he needed to see Talia and check on her, but it was a long night and after the show he had put on before Willow slapped him, her friend deserved a goodnights sleep. He must have been exhausted. She could relate to his comment. A long, dreamless night for her and her son, she assumed. Lucas usually went to her when he had a dream.

Remi asked how her and Lucas slept and she shrugged. “The same, I guess. Nothing special about it.” Remi played with Lucas’ hand and Lucas smiled as he spoke, lifting his other arm up in the air. “Great! I had my own bed and...and mommy and I had a tickle fight this morning!” Lucas leaned closer to Remi and whispered in his ear, even though Willow could still hear. “Don’t tell mommy, but I won.” He pulled back and smiled triumphantly, and Willow smiled at the two. If anyone could put a smile on a person’s face, it was Lucas. Then again, she assumed any kid could do the same. Kelsey probably could too. Willow looked at Greyson cooking with Eric and she looked back to Remi. She could see Matthew a few feet away from them out of the corner of her eye and Willow just watched him approached. She thought it was weird to see everyone coming together under one roof and interacting. She wasn’t sure of the relationships between everyone, but maybe she’d find out sooner or later.

Gravity kept bothering Damian as he wandered the halls in search of Eva. He could smell something being made, but he could eat later. It wasn’t like he had anywhere to go during the day. Gravity brought up him being rude again for about the sixth time, and Damian abruptly turned around. ”Excuse me when I say this, but I don’t need you. If I wish to converse with you ever, I will turn to you. However, if you really want assist me right now, could you please direct me to Eva’s room?” Gravity came up short and she nodded her head quickly. Damian could tell he got to her and he straightened up, waiting. Gravity passed him and continued forward. Follow me.

Damian walked right behind her. His muse led him down several halls until they came across a door. The girl cleared her throat before Damian could knock. She’s not in her room right now, she’s in the bathroom. So you will wait outside the bathroom until she emerges.” Damian sighed softly and nodded his head. He was starting to become agitated, but he had to remain calm for his conversation with Eva. If she said no and he lost his cool, then there was no way she would willingly say yes. He would just frighten her more, in which case he could threaten and force her to train with him. That wouldn’t be too bad after all. Damian leaned against the wall connecting to the door and turned his head to his muse. “If you do not mind, I would like to speak to her alone. You may reappear after. Is that understood?” Gravity hesitated before nodding her head. Yes, I understand. She disappeared and left Damian by himself. He waited against the wall until he saw Eva come out of the bathroom. She seemed to be by herself, and Damian flashed his usual smile at her.

Ophelia great despite what happened yesterday night. It was just nice to have someone to help her take her mind off of her best friend. Even if only for a brief moment. He rejected her bathroom proposal, but for a good reason. The wink was assurance that they were thinking on the same level. It was for reasons like that, that she adored Nathan. He flirted with her no problem. Even if it was reasonable flirting. "I will be quite this time. I promise." her voice practically in a purr. Opehlia doesn't know what the word quiet means. But she was only teasing. He had already made up his mind. Which meant they weren't doing anything. They started heading towards the bathroom since he agreed to at least walk her there. As they walked he mentioned the second voice that he woke up too. For a moment Ophelia had to think about it. "Oh. I sort of met my muse this morning. But I sent it away because I didn't want to be bothered so early." Leave it to Ophelia to forced her muse to leave before they were even properly introduced. They got closer to the bathroom and she turned to him. Leaning up on her tip toes she placed a kiss on his lips. "Make sure they have bagels in the kitchen." She whispered between the small gap she left between them. Leaving Nathan, she walked into the bathroom to get cleaned up.

Matthew walked into the kitchen, not expecting the group of people. He first noticed Remi. For a moment it seemed that he had seen him as well, but Remi just went back to talking to Willow. Matt just kept walking to where the bar stool was. It was quite isolated. It was to make sure that no one felt like they had to talk to him. He would be perfectly fine humming to himself. He hummed quietly. Waiting for food to be done. He wanted to go and talk to Remi. To explain why he didn't wait for the older male to wake up before saying anything. But he was surrounded by others. They could talk later. Maybe.

Greyson was practically finished with his part of the breakfast. There were more than enough pancakes and waffles for everyone. When he looked around to see who else had joined them, his face lit up slightly. Camila had joined them. Greyson smiled softly at Cami before she ducked away toward her cousin. He just looked down with a smile still on his face. He wasn't going to confton her right now. He wanted to go deal with his best friend. Greyson washed his hands and walked over to Remi and Willow. He smiled at Lucus. "Hey little man! he said, giving Lucas a high five. Then he looked at Remi. "Hey little man." It was less enthusiastic, but it was just to tease. Then he looked at Willow. "Hope you slept well knowing you smacked my precious Remi." Greyson was truly just trying to lighten the mood. He wanted everyone to be happy.

Eric was making the last of the bacon and he was hoping Erza would just hop to the job without question. But he was distracted by Camila. Not that it was a problem. Eric was a tad bit distracted by Delaney. She had joined them in the kitchen and immediately offered to help find fruit. That was the best job for her after all. He smiled at his blonde crush. Eric thought that he should give a verbal hi or a hug, but he stayed put. He needed to finish his food before his sister came down and complained. Speaking of siblings he looked around. "Has anyone seen Eva?"

Evangeline took her time getting ready for school. It's not like she wanted to go. Being forced to try and understand something she clearly didn't understand. On top of that she didn't want to be bombarded by brother 1, brother 2, Air, and Damian. They were all annoying. Evie really just wanted to see Delaney, Willow, and Lucas before heading out. But she knew that wouldn't be the case. Especially because Air can just pop in and out whenever he felt like it. Damian always seemed to find Eva. And her brother tag team seemed to have implanted her with a tracking device. Running the fingers through her now straight her, she sighed. Time to embrace another terrible school day. She walked out of the bathroom, she saw Air waiting for her. Smiling. She walked a bit closer and quickly realized that it wasn't Air. It was Damian. Why her muse looked like the scariest person alive was beyond her. But the better question was why Damian was waiting for her. Evangeline kept walking by him hoping that he wouldn't want to say anything to her.

Ezra assured Cami that they were almost finished with breakfast and that she didn't need to do anything, but regardless, Cami wanted to help. She looked around and glanced back at him for a moment as she spoke. "I'm going to set the table" she abounded quietly and began looking through cabinets to find cups, spoons, plates and whatever else they would need to eat. She watched out of the corner of her eye as Grayson walked over to Remi, probably to see how he was doing. Cami would have gone herself, but she didn't know what to say or what to do so she continued on her mission to make sure everyone had their utensils. There were some smaller cups and spoons for the kids as well. As far as she knew, there were only two toddlers in the house, and Kelsey was nowhere to be seen. Cami guessed she was still asleep. The events from the day before probably wore her out. Without a word, she began migrating the items to the table, offering Mathew a little smile once she saw him sitting by himself. He seemed to be just as destroyed over what happened to Talia as she was.

Ezra simply nodded to Camila's suggestion to set the table. She needed something to do, to distract her, so why not. He was about to leave the kitchen to go on the mission Eric had given him when Delaney volunteered to help. "That's okay by me" he said with a little smile, discretely nudging Eric with his elbow. "We'll need something to carry them back" he said as he bag looking for something big enough. Finally he found a plastic bowl and pulled it out. He inspected it to make sure it wasn't dirty or broken and turned to the blonde. "Okay let's go. AND I'll see if we can find Eva too". Ezra added before he headed out of the kitchen and out into the many hallways. He had no idea where to start looking. Was there a backyard somewhere? A greenhouse maybe? The house was enormous so there had to be a lot of yard space. But which way was the yard?

Remi pretended to only be paying attention to Willow but he watched as Mathew walked over and sat by himself. Why was he always by himself. Certainly he couldn't enjoy it. No one likes being along. However, Lucas' enthusiastic voice brought him back to reality and he laughed softly at the boy's comment. A real laugh, even though it was weak and short, would do him good. "I won't say a word" Remi whispered back to him and hooked pinkies with the boy as a sign of a promise. Lucas looked ecstatic and Remi almost wanted to smile. Little kids really were amazing sometimes. "Hey little man". Remi looked up to see Grayson greeting the little boy and then the same comment was directed at him. Remi lifted an eyebrow, catching onto his friend's teasing. "Little? Trust me, there's nothing little about be". Remi responded with a half hearted wink. He still wasn't in the mid to flirt, but perhaps it could distract him, even if just for a moment. "Where's my little princess?" he asked, noticing Kelsey was nowhere to be seen.

Ophelia saw that she had clothes and things in the bathroom already. Her muse must be looking out for her. Stripping down to her birthday suit, she turned on the shower water. It needs to be scolding hot for her to be able to feel it. A side effect to her element being fire. She sat there waiting for the steam to clog up the room. Once she could no longer see herself in the mirror, she took a long necessary shower. She took the time to think about her best friend. And then think about her boyfriend. And then she thought about whether or not she take the extra time to wash her hair as well. That decision was made rather quickly. By the end her hair smelled like strawberries. Miss Landers turned off the water and stepped out of the tub. She wiped the steam off the mirror and saw the reflection of a tiny blue wisp. Rolling her eyes, she moved it so that it was in front of her. "By later I meant, when I was dressed." "You were taking too long." The pyromaniac went back to drying her hair. "Well you have until I get dressed to explain what and who you are." Ophelia walked away from the mirror to grab her undergarments. The wisps just stayed by the mirror annoyed by the time limit. "I am your muse. Fire. We are named by your ability. I wish you had a nice ability though. Like Nathan. Having the name Time is better than Fire." Ophelia glared at the wisp.

"Is that it?" Ophelia slipped on a skirt and brushed her hair out. She didn't want water dripping down the back of shirt. The wisp did not appreciate the attitude. "That's no way to talk to your muse." The tiny, helpless looking blue flame claimed. Ophelia giggled. "You are not intimidating. Damian doesn't scare me. You definitely don't scare me." The wisp knew Damian and just backed off. "Well fine. You are free I guess." Ophelia put the shirt on and smiled. Without another word she left the bathroom in search of her boyfriend and her bagel. It wasn't long before she strolled into the kitchen which was surprisingly full of people.

Greyson chuckled and winked at Remi. At least he was trying to flirt, which was a semi good sign. Luckily, they didn't have to go to school. The last thing they needed was to have class. Willow seemed to be doing alright too. She was in a semi-dangerous state the last time he saw her. Lucas clearly had no idea what was going. All three of them were curious to know about Kelsey. "I didn't know my princess was so popular. She is with my muse. But I am about to go get her so that she can eat breakfast." He said so nonchalantly. He trusted Celeste so he trusted the muse. "And as soon as she comes down of course you can play with her Lucas." Kelsey would like having someone to color and stuff with. Then he looked at Remi. "But does my other princess want breakfast? Eric made eggs and bacon. And I made waffles and pancakes." He would get Willow food too if she really wanted some, but he was just really concerned for his best friend.

Eric wash his hands and slightly glared at Ezra when he nudged him. Way to be subtle. The two also agreed to look for his younger sibling and he was quite grateful for that. He was going to force her to go to school whether she wanted to go or not. Not that he really cared if she didn't want to go. School would be good for her and her dyslexia. Delaney and Ezra left for fruit. Nathan appeared and complimented his cooking. Eric just laughed. "I'm more Rachel Ray." They were only messing around of course. Eric doesn't really cook. He usually just buys food. Evie doesn't seem to mind.

Matthew smiled softly at Cami as she went to set the table. He was just trying to be polite. But he was having a hard time keeping his eyes off of Remi. He wanted to go up and talk to him, but he was frozen to his seat. It didn't help that Remi was openly flirting with Greyson. There was some jealousy of curse, but he wasn't going to give Remi the satisfaction. He was waiting for the two people on the mission for fruits to come back. He was hoping they would return with apples. That was all he ever ate for breakfast. Especially before school. The quicker he ate, the faster his muse would take him to Talia.

Evangeline just wanted Damian to leave her alone. He seemed to always want to ambush her when she was alone. God forbid another person showed up it would be like Damian and her didn't even know each other. He ended up catching up with her and blocking her path. She took a few steps backward thinking about bolting in the other direction. But when he spoke, she froze up. Like always. Any thought of running fled her mind. It was annoying what power he held over her. Now she was wondering her Damian look alike was at a time like this. Of all the times she could ask for a muse he wasn't around. Damian seemed to be waiting for an answer. The answer to the question that he asked her before they fell through the floor. She just stared at her, searching for the words. But it seemed that her vocabulary that she learned in elementary school left her. 'Say something!' she scolded herself. "N-no. M-my muse will train me." Evie managed to choke up while taking a few steps backward.

Cami finished setting the table, her eyes wandering back and forth between Nathan and Grayson. Nathan seemed to be on a mission to get Ophelia some breakfast. Cami knew her best friend well enough to know that the bagel and cream cheese was for her. She smiled softly to herself. Nathan really was such a good guy. Grayson seemed to be busy talking to Remi. She made a mental note to say hello to him later. She wanted to speak to Remi as well. Maybe he knew something about Talia. Cami's stomach turned at the memories at what had happened the day before and suddenly she had lost all her appetite. She sighed and ran her fingers through her hair. She wanted to leave, but she needed sonething to eat. Preferably something light like a fruit. Which meant she'd have to wait until Ezra and Delaney made it back. She sat quietly on a stool to watch the rest of them go about their business. Mathew seemed to have the same idea as her. Cami wanted to talk to him, but he didn't seem to be in the mood for socializing.

Remi listened to Greyson and Willow talk about their kids and Grey mentioned Kelsey being with his muse. Remi cocked an eyebrow and looked at him. "I didn't get one of those" he muttered, not really caring much about it. He rolled his eyes when Grey referred to him as "his princess" and smiled a little. "Thanks dear, but I'm not hungry" he teased as he carefully handed Lucas over to his mother and stretched a little. "I'll just get a drink" he informed him so he wouldn't get worried. "But you're oh so thoughtful" he chimed as he dramatically kissed his cheek and walked past him to the fridge. He found a small bottle of orange juice and opened it up, immediately drinking from it. His mind knew he had to eat, but his stomach didn't agree. Remi said he'd be going to get Kelsey, so Remi decided to sit and enjoy his juice until he came back with his goddaughter. He walked over to the corner of the table and say down. Not two seconds later he was staring off into space again, completely unaware of Mathew being just a few feet away.

Ezra had absolutely know idea how Delaney knew where the back yard was. The mansion was enormous and they had let even been there a day. Somehow though, she led them straight to the large variety of fruits. "Wow". Being from Spain he was used to seeing big amounts of fresh fruit and vegetables, he just didn't expect to see them here. "I'm suddenly really home sick" he chuckled, looking at the scenery. He looked at the bowl then back at the fruits. It seemed like Delaney was thinking the same thing. Too many fruits and not enough bowl. He looked around for a moment and noticed something near the back door. "We'll look at that!" he smiled as he walked back over and picked up one of the two woven baskets. It was a little bigger than the bowl and had handles to make it easier to carry. He walked back over and sat the basket on the ground. Time to fill it up.

Currently, half of the people that she could see in the room did not have anywhere to be this early in the morning. Those people just happen to be the ones making breakfast for the people in the house. That was awfully kind of them. Ophelia could never cook for other people. Because of two reasons. One. People cook for her all the time whenever she needs food. Two. The effort to make food for others was a waste of energy unless she really cared about them. Cami, Talia, and Nathan could get food anytime they wanted. But everyone else would need to beg, plead, and be completely malnourished before she even thought about it. She ran her hands through her hair and saw Nathan approach her with a smile. Adjusting her skirt, she smiled back. Ophelia saw that he had her bagel with strawberry cream cheese. She kissed his cheek and then took her plate. "You are the best." But he already knew that. She picked up one of the halves of the bagel and took a bite from it. Out of the corner of her eye she saw one of her close friends sitting alone. Cami clearly needed Ophelia to cheer her up. Her attention went back to her boyfriend as she swallowed the food in her mouth. "I'm going to go talk to Cami." She saw that he didn't have food in his hands for himself. "And you are going to get yourself breakfast." It sounded like a command, but Ophelia could never really tell Nathan what to do. She never could. He was almost immune. With that she walked around him and semi skipped over to Cami. She took another giant bite from her bagel. "What's up buttercup? Not hungry?" She sat in the stool next to her. "You know if your man candy made the food, it has to taste good." Her voice was low. She didn't want to let the whole world know that Cami had a crush on Greyson.



Image
Image

Remi politely turned down Greyson's offer to get him food, which was completely fine with Grey. He just want to let his best friend that he would be here for him whenever he called. For a moment he lingered with his two friends before deciding it was time to go and get his daughter for breakfast. Willow took her son further into the kitchen to get food. Remi just sat down. Greyson just hoped that Talia was okay to get him out of this funk he was in. It was surely depressing to see Remi less than himself. A sigh escaped him and he started jogging back to his room. Nearing the room he could hear his little girl counting. He raised an eyebrow. "Ready or not here I come!" Her and the muse must have been playing hide and seek. A low chuckle escaped him and he opened the door. "Daddy!" He heard the moment he opened the door. The little girl took her attention away from the door and jumped on her father. Greyson picked up and kissed all over her face. She started giggling and squirming in his arms. "Hey baby girl. Were you having fun?" She nodded her head enthusiastically. Then she turned too see her babysitter smiling wide, while sitting on the bed. "Just shout Water, whenever you need me Grey." With that she faded. Kelsey gasped with admiration. "Daddy! Is she magic!" Greyson laughed and nodded his head. "Yes she is. Now come on. I made breakfast." She clapped her hands in approval and he walked with his baby girl back down to the kitchen to feed her breakfast.

Eric leaned up against the kitchen counter, waiting for Delaney to come back. He just wanted to talk to her. Or just look at her. Which ever he thought would be a bit less awkward. But right now he was waiting. Looking around no one was really eating anything. Willow and Lucas were the first to grab food. Nathan grabbed bagels for Ophelia no less. Everyone else was either too scared to eat first or waiting on the fruit. Eric heard his stomach growl and he decided that he wasn't going to wait for a dinner bell. He grabbed a fresh clean plate and started at the pancakes. He grabbed three of those. Then he threw two big helpings of eggs and five pieces of bacon on the plate as well. He walked over to the table that Camila had set and settled down. Hesitating for a moment, he thought he should at least wait for Eva. But she was taking way to long. Drenching his pancakes in syrup, he grabbed his fork and dug in.

Matthew just watched Camila set the table. There wasn't much else to look at. Well besides Remi. But Remi was too busy flirting with Greyson and chatting with Willow. Matty was trying so hard not to jealous. All the two did last night was sleep in the same room. But when Remi and him made eye contact for a brief second it was like Matthew was invisible. It just made his regret ever having a crush on the man. But Matt couldn't stop his heart from doing what it wanted. He sighed a bit and smiled softly at Camila when she took a seat all by her lonesome. He thought that maybe she was also waiting on the fruit. People were starting to eat the food that had just been made. Matt stayed in his seat and watched Remi join the table. They were sitting close to each other, but Remi didn't say a word. That slightly irritated Matthew, but he pushed that away. He decided that he should at least talk to Remi. Or just say hi. They were supposed to be at least friends. "Hi Remi." Matthew got a genuine smile on his face as he ran his fingers through his own bleach blonde hair.

Damian did not look pleased with her answer. But Evangeline could never really read his emotions on a good day. All she knew is that he was out to get her about one hundred percent of the time. Willow didn't believe her and Eric thought she just needed to be indoors more often. But Evie knew that being inside didn't make her safe. It just gave the tall, dark, and mysterious boy a challenge. For a moment they were silent and Evangeline thought that she was going to be freed. But instead she was given a lecture. The scariest and most thought provoking lecture she had ever heard. And unfortunately Eva was right about her muse. Air never said that he was hear to train her. Celeste never mentioned the muses being helpful in the elemental department. The people that were in charge might have been just as confused as she was with her powers. Damian seemed to have the most control and power in the group. At least from what she could tell. And he was practically offering her power. To actually be able to protect herself and those she cares about. Kickboxing could only take her so far. If she was confronted by Kain she would be absolutely hopeless. “Evangeline, you should know I do not come as a second option.” Her eyes grew a bit wider. Her decision needed to be made now and this would be it. No going back. A shaky sigh escaped her. Eric would not be pleased with what she was about to say. "O-okay." Her voice barely above a whisper. She was practically ashamed that she had said yes.

Ophelia giggled when Camila's face turned a bright red color. It was amusing to see how embarrassed she could get just from mentioning anything about Greyson. As much as it would please Ophelia, to continue to make her friend it would eventually get annoying. Cami was already embarrassed enough. She took another bite of her bagel and watched Nathan get his food. She never understood his breakfast choices. Bagel and strawberry cream cheese was the way to go. Had everything she needed for a 'healthy' breakfast. Turning back to her friend Cami, she tried to remember what she was really wanted to talk about. She quickly remembered about needing to go to school. "So. I was wondering. Do I have to be at school today?" The pyromaniac was asking as if, Cami was her mother. That wasn't the case at all. But she just wanted to know that if her best friend didn't need or want support at school, Ophelia would then have to convince Nathan to skip school as well. Ophelia finished her bagel and sat the plate down. She needed something to drink, but she was too lazy to get up and get it herself. Maybe when Greyson walked by, she would ask him. She would ask Nathan, but he already sat down to eat. She was not going to bother him again. Also, Willow was with him. Ophelia tried to avoid her at all cost.



Image
Image

Greyson waltzed into the kitchen with his daughter in his arms. She smelled the food and smiled the Cheshire cat. "Are there pancakes, daddy?" The father nodded and she squealed, wiggling around in his arms. She insisted on being put down so that she could run to get the food. Grey laughed and set his daughter onto the floor. She grabbed a small plate and attempted to reach for everything. Once she realized that she was two short, Greyson prepared the plate for her. "Thanks daddy." She said taking her plate in hand. He nodded and held his own plate of food in his hand. Kelsey ran straight to where the other child was sitting. Willow and Nathan were there as well enjoying breakfast. Greyson helped Kelsey into her chair and then sat next to her. "Hope you all don't mind, Kelsey and I joining you." Not that they really had a choice, the duo had already sat down. Greyson looked over to his best friend to see that he was talking with Matthew. Then he saw Camila was clearly red faced, but busy with Ophelia. He thought the seating choice he made was a rather good one. "Dig in princess." Kelsey didn't have to be told twice. She started to eat her food as well as her father.



Image
Image

Matthew didn't think Remi would say anything to him. Not only did he respond, he was being a bit playful. That lifted up his spirits. There was nothing better than having your crush want to be around you. But it made him feel even more guilty for leaving the older blonde before he had woken up. Matt didn't know whether or not to be sorry for that or brush off the comment. "Sorry. I uh need a moment to myself." He stated, running his fingers through his hair. "But next time we sleep together I will be sure to be there for you in the morning." Matt said, in attempt to be flirtatious. It was just for the sake of Remi. Anyone else and he would have just stopped at the sorry. He saw that Remi didn't have any food and that concerned him a little. "Not hungry?"



Image
Image

Evangeline knew that she shouldn't have accepted his offer. She knew that she should have high tailed it the moment he caught her in the hallway. But she sat there and listened to him like she always did. She always let him do whatever he wanted. She just let him get into her head and she couldn't do anything about it. Evangeline never told anyone about the times she has seen Damian. She was too afraid to say anything. She would rather just forget that they ever met. But she had walked right into the lions den with no escape. Damian's idea of training could mean anything. She would find out exactly what he meant at eight thirty tonight. Evie would show up on time for fear of what would happen if she showed up late. She just nodded, still not being able to use her words. Finally, some space was put between them when he walked away. He didn't fail to look back and prompt Eva on lying about the training. Evangeline thought she would be allowed to tell someone, but she could. The dancer nodded and then took some steps back. She couldn't tell anyone about her dangerous meet ups. If something bad happened no one would know where to look. Before he could say anything else or come up with more terms, Eva turn and ran. She ran down the hall as far away as she could. She was trying to find the kitchen. That is where everyone should be. And it would be her temporary safe haven.

Ophelia never meant to embarrass Camila as much as she clearly has. The pyromaniac would not mention Greyson Latier for the next couple hours. Just to keep her best friend sane. But after school, Ophelia was probably going to ring it up several different times around other people that weren't Grey. Just to bother her. It would be great. Nathan would probably help. Or he would ceased the teasing. Moving on from Cami's crush, she allowed Ophelia to skip school. She would have jumped for joy if Camila didn't suggest that she skipped school. Ophelia almost looked dumbfounded. Camila? Missing school? Granted their best friend was severely injured, but Camila never missed school. And Ophelia may tease her about it, but in the triangle one of them must get a decent education. "No. You are going to school." And Ophelia cringed at her next words. "And I am going with you. Only I am skipping all my classes and following you around." That way she technically wasn't going to school. She was just going to trail her best friend to make sure that she is okay. Just then the sun that was once high in the sky, dipped low. The moon and stars were out. Ophelia was ready to attack, as usual. Whoever did that could be a threat. Her eyes ventured over to Nathan. She couldn't lose him either. And she was close enough to Cami to protect her. Just then it was like someone turned the lights back on. Ophelia didn't address what was happening. "Deal?"

Greyson and his daughter ate their breakfast quite peacefully. Well Greyson ate, and Kelsey destroyed. It's like she hasn't eaten in days. His food was good, but now that good. Willow teased about him and his daughter sitting here and he glared playfully. Messing with Willow was pretty easy considering she was close with Remi. Anyone close with Remi was good for teasing. Since Remi either teases or flirts. That pretty much how he gets by in life. Kelsey to a break from stuffing her face to sip some of the water. “Hi, Kelsey!” She looked over at Lucas with a smile. Greyson leaned down and whispered his name to her daughter. Setting her water down she waved. "Hi Lucas." Now Kelsey was going to have a friend to play with. That was good. The father can't entertain his daughter 24/7. He sipped his orange juice as the lights dimmed and it became night time. He held his daughter close to him, concerned for the change. It soon returned to day and he looked less worried. Elemental glitch? He didn't want to address it really. "Daddy who turned off the lights?" Greyson chuckled. "I don't know sweet heart."

Evangeline kept running. Getting lost a couple times as she was trying to find the kitchen. After a while she stopped running to catch her breath. Looking behind her, she didn't see a single trace of Damian. It made her feel better. Just a little. He was still in the house. The young girl held her hands out and saw that she was shaking. She was still terrified. Running her shakey hands through her hair, she started actually looking for the kitchen. Walking in, she saw almost the entire house gathered. Well all except Ezzie and Delaney. She spotted her brother quite easily. Jogging over to him, she slid in the chair next to him and rested against him. Eric could feel her shaking and he looked at her with great concern. "What's wrong?" He whispered. Evie just shook her head. She wasn't allowed to say anything. Something bad could happen to Eric. He stared at his baby sister for a moment and then just decided not to push it.

Matthew for some reason was expecting a small flirty comment back like Remi had done with Greyson, but instead he just got a confused look. That kind of hurt so he was glad that the conversation was dropped. Remi said that he couldn't eat because his stomach was in knots. Matty could understand the feeling. That was why he was only eating fruits. Remi asked about him and his eating. Matthew shrugged a little. "I was waiting for the fruits, but I am losing my appetite again." He said.
