Cami is the average Spanish girl. She dresses very simple and classic and almost always has her hair down. She normally keeps it shoulder length because she believes that the longer her hair is, the smaller she will look which isn't good considering she stands at 5ft 2. She's slender, but has a nice hourglass shape to her body. Her hands and feet, like her, are very small. She wears a size 5 in shoes and sometimes gets frustrated because she can never find shoes that fit.

Cami was born into a very small and poor family. Because of this, kids at school would make fun of her because she never had the same things they did. Since she was an only child, her parents always tried to give her the best that they could so she wouldn't have to feel left out, but this just made her feel like a burden to them. A few weeks after her 8th birthday, her parents, grandparents and her packed their things and moved to the united states. Despite not having many friends, she missed her old home and her cousin Ezra, who was like a brother to her. She try desperately to adjust to the new life style and the new language, but would often be bullied because she didn't speak English. She also started to see her parents less and less because they were now both working two jobs to support her and her grandparents. She started to feel more and more lonely until one day she met a boy named Alex. Despite her shy nature, they quickly became good friends and eventually became inseparable. She no longer felt that aching sense of loneliness. Alex always kept her laughing and happy. He was the reason she woke up smiling in the morning, but in the blink of an eye he became the reason she'd cry herself to sleep. During a fight with his father he hit his head and was killed instantly. For month on end, Camila couldn't eat, couldn't sleep, could hardly even get up in the morning. Her grades dropped significantly and she lost interest in everything. Alex had been her first love and she never even had the chance to tell him. With time, she started to return to herself again, but no matter how much time passes, she will still cry herself to sleep from time to time thinking abut her best friend.

She still lives with her parents, but plans to go away to college soon after she graduates. She wants to major in art and journalism and eventually become a traveling writer.

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.

Delaney wasn’t as lucky as she had hoped. She had dozed off to the, but only to be awoken by it a few minutes later. She jumped up as she heard a woman scream. When she turned her head to the TV, she saw a video clip, obviously taken by a cell phone, of a woman running as an earthquake swayed the ground and started to bring buildings down. Delaney sighed and covered her face with her hand. Maybe the putting the news on hadn’t been her best idea.

Delaney sat up and accepted that she wouldn’t be able to fall asleep with how alert she was right now. She scrolled through her contacts and tried to figure out who would still be up. Cami was an obvious choice, but with school the next day she could be doing homework still. She kept scrolling until she landed on the next choice. She found Eva’s name and figured she would still be up. At least she hoped so.

She stood from her bed and didn’t bother to change from her bed shorts and oversized sweatshirt. She went downstairs, grabbed her keys, and texted Eva quickly before leaving.

To: Eva
I’m coming to get you and we’re going to Willow’s, granted she’s not asleep. I can’t fall asleep and I’m bored. See you in a bit! (-:


Delaney slipped on a pair of slippers and went outside, shutting the door behind her quietly. She got her bike from the garage and leisurely peddled to Eva’s house.

About ten minutes into the bike ride she quickened her pace. She had started to feel unease peddling late at night by herself, something which normally didn’t bother her. She squirmed on the seat of the bike and reached Eva’s house a few minutes later. When she got there she leaned her bike against the side of the house and approached the front door, quietly sliding her feet against the ground as she did so. When she reached the door she saw it was opened a crack, and she peeked her head in to see Eric and Ezra in the middle of what she assumed to be reunion. Ezra must have gotten back. She smiled a little as she watched them, and stepped quietly in the room and shut the door after the hug was broken up. She cleared her throat and smiled shyly at Eric and then at Ezra. ”Uh, I hope I’m not intruding. I came for Eva.” She made a quick hand gesture to the stairs and her eyes drifted from where she was pointing to Eric’s eyes. She could feel her stomach knot the slightest bit.

Nathan pulled up to Ophelia’s and walked up to the door. Before he could even knock, Lyles opened the door and he smiled at the man. ”Thank you, Lyles. It’s nice to see you again.” Lyles nodded while he handed Nathan a box of snickers. Nathan grabbed them and shook his head slightly. He didn’t know how Ophelia liked snickers. He thought they were gross. Nathan accepted the box of candy and mouthed another “thank you” to Lyles.

He went upstairs to Ophelia’s room and knocked once and entered, not waiting for a reply. He smiled when he saw Ophelia, Cami, and Talia. He never really talked to Talia before, but she saw friends with Ophelia and Cami so she couldn’t be bad. “Hey guys.” He turned to his girlfriend and smirked slightly as he held up the snickers. “You need new tastebuds.” He set the box on the bed as he sat next to her, watching as Marbles plopped into his lap happily. He ran his hand across the kitten’s back. The kitten purred and Nathan grinned. “So what’s on tonight’s agenda? Anything exciting happening?”

Damian left the house dressed in the first outfit he could put together, which happened to be one of his favorites. He stepped outside and took out a cigarette, placing it between his lips. He lit in and inhaled, allowing the smoke to burn his throat. He dropped his hand to his side and walked down the street, keeping to the back alleyways and mazes that led to the darkest part of town.

He walked down the dimly lit street, his footsteps inaudible, and finished his cigarette. He let the cigarette butt fall and smushed it under his foot. He continued walking until he came across the abandoned warehouse he had seen in his dream. He usually practiced here at night, and it was of no surprise to see a recall of memories in his dreams. He remembered that boy. What was his name, Sid? Kyle? Whatever it was, Damian didn’t care much. Another human life that no one would miss. As useless as he may have been, at Damian got some fun out of it. As he rounded the corner leading to the warehouse, he saw a streak of blond rush past in his peripheral vision. He turned his head to get a better look. He saw Delaney riding on her bike, accelerating her pace the further away she became. What was the hurry? Couldn’t she stick around for some fun? He thought of pursuing her, but remembered he had better things to do.

Damian entered the warehouse and went over the the faint stain of blood on the ground. He should have probably cleaned that up when it happened. He smiled at the reminder and knelt down next to the spot, running his fingers across the floor. He walked to the supply closet he kept and took the bleach out, pouring it across the floor and smiled as the scent burned his nostrils. As soon as he was done here he would find Eva. Maybe that’s where Delaney. Two for one, he thought briefly, flashing his teeth as he did so.

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.



Image

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
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.

Image

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.

Delaney saw Eva and smiled. Before Delaney could even say hi, her friend was pushing her out the door and Delaney laughed slightly. “Jeez, I didn’t know it was that urgent. Love you too, though.” Delaney shook her head slightly at Eva and gestured to the side of the house. “I left my bike on the side of the house. I’ll get it and you can ride on the pegs or something.” Delaney walked to the side of the house, leaving Eva by herself.

When she reached the side, she didn’t see her bike right away. She craned her neck and squinted until she saw her bike closer to the backyard. Odd, she thought. She walked and got her bike, kicking the kickstand back and rolling it alongside her as she went back for her friend.

She walked back around the house and took a step back when Eva wasn’t there. She looked around frantically. She had just been there a minute ago. Where could she have gone? “Eva?” She dropped her bike but never heard it hit the ground. She waited for the sound but it never came. She turned around. If she knew one thing, she wasn’t in the Newman’s front yard anymore. Where was Eva? Delaney ran her hand through her hair. “Eric’s gonna kill me..” She was more worried about where Eva was then where she was now. She sighed and tugged on the sleeves of her sweater nervously. Now what?




Image

Nathan rolled his eyes at his girlfriend and wrapped an arm around her waist. Then Talia spoke up and he chuckled. ”Luckily, we don’t have that problem.” He turned his attention back to Ophelia. “I’m glad you’re not about to dump me over candy.” His eyes landed on Talia as she squealed about Greyson to Cami. Greyson Latier? Cami had a thing for him? Well, that was news. Nathan cocked an eyebrow and watched as Cami, at least her cheeks, turned slowly into a lobster. He had never seen her so embarrassed over a guy. In fact, Nathan didn’t think he had ever seen Cami flustered over a guy.

”Greyson latier, huh?” He looked at Cami amused. “I didn’t see that one coming.” He smiled as he said it, but he could feel his stomach twist slightly. He was glad Cami liked someone, but he couldn’t help but feel a little jealous.

Willow rolled over on her side and sighed. Half conscience, she ran her hand over the cool ground and inhaled. Lemon filled her nose and she came up short. She inhaled again. The scent was off, unfamiliar. She peeked her eyes open and stared at the pastel yellow walls opposite of her. She jerked up into the sitting position and looked around the room. She wasn’t home, so where the hell was she? She jumped up off the floor and looked at her watch; it read midnight. What was this place? Where was she? If she didn’t know where she was, then where was..

Oh my God. The panic started to bubble inside of her and she ran around the close to vacant room. She couldn’t find him anywhere and she could feel her chest tighten. “Lucas?” She would have screamed if her voice hadn’t given out on her. He had to be here somewhere. It’s not like she could have left and gone back home. She didn’t even know where she was! She bit her lip and blinked a few times; he wasn’t in this room.

Willow sighed and then heard a door creak. She turned her head to find Lucas peeking his head around the door frame he was in. “Lucas!” She exclaimed and ran over to him, swiftly picking him up in her arms and cradling him against her chest. “Where were you? I was so worried!” Lucas pulled on her hair and smiled up at her, pointing to the room he had been stolen from. “In there.” Willow looked into the room and then closed the door after seeing it to be nicer looking than the one she had been in. She hadn’t even seen that door she first time she looked at the walls. Had it just appeared? Nothing was making sense to her.

She hugged Lucas closer to her and he shifted in her arms. ”Mommy,” he whispered. ”Who’s that?” She looked at him and then slowly turned around to look where her son was looking. She paused when she came across a man with dark hair and tan skin. She bit her bottom lip softly. He was cute. Very cute. She pushed the thoughts away and took a cautious step forward to get a better look at the man across from them. “I’m not sure, honey.” She paused and raised an eyebrow at him. “Uh, who are you?” The question came out sharper than she had hoped, but maybe not sharp enough. After all, there was a random man in a mysterious room she had never been in before. Where did he come from? Had he been in there when she was looking for Lucas? She could have completely overlooked him; that was possible.

Damian finished cleaning about 10 minutes after he started. With the floor all clean and the scent of bleach and other cleaning products almost intoxicating, Damian left the warehouse and stepped into the crisp summer night. He inhaled and the air was like a brand new sensation. It was foreign to him, sweeter than usual. He exhaled and shut the door of the warehouse behind him. He turned back around and his surroundings were different; very different. He knew the warehouse inside and out, and where he was now was nowhere in that building.

He looked around the room he was being held in and walked around the perimeter of it, running his hand against the wall as he did so. The walls were cold; painted white concrete walls and white tiled floors. It looked like a room a mental patient got admitted to. Maybe this was some kind of joke, but he knew better. No one had approached him and kidnapped him. Like they could, he thought. No one ever went near him. He had turned around and appeared in this room. That was all he knew. He smiled to himself and leaned against the walls, right where they intersected. Maybe something else, or someone else, would come too.

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.

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.

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.

Delaney was thinking of how to get out of here and just where she was when she heard Eric’s voice. Oh crap! Not only had she been left with Eva, who disappeared, but now Delaney was stuck in a room with Eric, the boy she liked. Could anything else happen? Delaney sighed and shook her head at the boy. Now, how was she going to explain this to Eric and hope he didn’t get angry? “I, uh, I don’t know. I don’t know where we are or what happened. I went to get my bike and then I came back and Eva was gone and then next thing I know I’m here.” She almost whispered her explanation. She paused before continuing. “I’m really sorry.”

She took a step towards Eric and glanced around the room again. “This looks like one of those ‘escape the room’ missions..so, where do we start?” She didn’t mind being stuck in a room with Eric, not at all. If anything, she wish it happened more often. However, in a different room maybe: one with doors and didn’t give her the chills looking at. She scanned the bottom of the walls and the top, seeing if there was any crack or crevice they could pick their way through, but it seemed pretty held together from her view.




Image

Image

Nathan chuckled slightly as Ophelia reassured him, and then winked at her when she made the comment about the others missing out. His mind drifted to nights at Ophelia’s when it was just the two of them. The nights when they would be in her room teasing each other, and then teasing turned into doing, the way things would pick up between them but cool down before anything got out of hand. He grinned to himself and turned his attention back to his friend’s embarrassment.

It seemed as though everyone wanted it to happen, and Nathan tilted his head slightly, watching Cami. He liked seeing her get so flustered over a guy, and liked hearing how everyone was willing to pitch in. He could even put in a good word or two. After all, he and Greyson got along just fine. What he would say, he wasn’t entirely sure. It could be hard being wingman for a girl he still had a hint of feelings for, but he had Ophelia now. He had to move on and focus everything in the relationship he was in. Not that he already was, but he knew if he moved on from Cami things with Ophelia could be where they already should be. On the bright side, he could tease Cami about finding someone.

He smiled and looked down at Marbles, or where Marbles should have been. Maybe the kitten had moved without Nathan knowing. Nathan lifted his head again and when he did, he saw a blank wall ahead of him. He got to his feet quickly and looked around. His eyes landed on none other than his girlfriend. At least they were together. He sighed and walked over to her, putting an arm over her shoulders and pulling her close. “Any idea where we are?” He had a feeling she wouldn’t know. How could she? This wasn’t a room in her house, at least none that he had seen. The depressing atmosphere of it wasn’t like the rest of Ophelia’s house. Wherever they were, Nathan had a strange feeling they weren’t alone.




Image

The man introduced himself as Ezra Vargas and Willow raised an eyebrow. So this was the Ezra that Eva had talked all about. The one that was like a brother to her and she saw only when he came to visit his cousin, Cami. Willow nodded her head slowly. He turned his attention to Lucas, who gladly accepted it. He enthusiastically nodded his head with a cheeky smile. "Yup! Mommy says I'm the most handsomest boy ever." His mother smiled and whispered in his ear. "That's cause you are, silly." Lucas turned himself more towards Ezra and Willow repositioned her arms around him, only to let him down seconds later. Lucas grabbed her hand and then reached another out towards Ezra. The gesture didn't surprise her, as her son was very open to everyone, but given the situation, she was surprised how comfortable he was.

Willow turned her head to look Ezra straight in the eye. "Willow. Willow Harmony Phoenix." She grinned a little as she continued to hold eye contact. To enter his mind, or to not invade his privacy? He had given her no reason to, but she didn't know what his intentions were. Being stuck in a room with a girl and her kid, if something were to happen..

Willow contemplated for a few seconds. She always got a thrill out of it, but she had better not. She turned her head and looked at where Lucas had entered. The door was missing and Willow sighed slightly. She looked back at her son and then at the handsome man next to her. "You can't blow out a wall by any chance, can you?"

Damian watched her. He watched the way she backed into him unknowingly, the way she covered her mouth, and more importantly the way she backed away from him. Terror. Absolute, sheer terror. The reaction brought an uncontrollable sly grin to his face. He took a slow, taunting step forward out of the shadows of the corner. “Hello, Evangeline. It’s a pleasure to see you here.” He kept walking until he was a foot or two from her. He was ready to corner her, but he knew not to just yet. She was delicate. A delicate little flower bud he had to pick from the weeds. He would provide for her and allow her to mature and blossom, just to watch her wilt and wither.

He smiled politely at her, and quickly assessed the situation. He needed to make sure no rash decisions were made. He could handle them if they were, but it would be an nuisance if so. Damian outstretched his hand slightly and gestured towards her. "You see, I was looking for you. I'm glad you found me. However.." he paused and withdrew his hand, folding his hands in front of him and returning to his normal, emotionless expression. "It seems as though we're trapped. Just us two. Isn't it lovely?" his voice was as smooth as velvet and he looked around the room, as if telling her to as well. He wanted her reaction. How would she react with him around and to what depth did her fear run? How much would it take for her to crack, just being in a room with him? How delicate was she really?

Ophelia ran her hands over the wall. In the movies there was a soft spot that acted as a button. Buttons mean secret doors. She was hoping for a secret door. But she couldn't find one. She was trying to keep her cool. Anything that messed with her mood and she could end up hurting herself. Being trapped between four walls wasn't that bad. Eventually whatever trapped her here would have to let her out. The brunette continued to feel around the wall, but she couldn't figure out what was going on. Taking a few steps back she felt someone touch her shoulders. Fire came to her hand and she was ready to set whoever it was ablaze, but it was just Nathan. She let the fire go out and she sighed, moving closer to him. Now that she wasn't alone the walls didn't seem so scary.

He asked if she had any idea where they were. She just shook her head. The room was unfamiliar and scary. If Nathan wasn't here she might have tried to set the room on fire just to watch the walls burn down. It would have at least meant freedom. Unfortunately with that plan, Ophelia wasn't completely fireproof. If it didn't work, she would end up killing herself. "Does Father Time have any ideas on how we can get out of here?" A small smile formed as she looked up at him. She was only teasing and she honestly didn't think that he had any idea how to get out.



Image
Image

Greyson looked around the room for a brief moment. There was no doors. No windows. Nothing. Bending down and picked his daughter up and held her close. He didn't know what was going to happen and he would prefer it if he had a hand on his daughter the entire time. "Where are we, Daddy?" Greyson had no idea. This was no where that he would recognize. "I don't know baby." Then he saw a very pretty woman appear before him. She looked just as confused as Greyson did. He looked over her and instantly recognized her. It was Camila Vargas. She was very attractive and if he could remember correctly only a year behind him. He saw her a lot when he went to school, but then that stopped after he graduated. He never really got the chance to talk to her. Not that Greyson didn't want too. He was just busy dealing with his daughter. Kelsey was just staring at the woman. "Daddy who is she?" The child attempted to whisper. "Her name is Camila." He said before he turned his attention towards her. "Are you alright?"



Image
Image

Eric looked over Delaney as she spoke. He wanted to make sure nothing bad had happened to her on the way in. But she seemed sincerely sorry for not keeping up with Eva. It wasn't entirely her fault. This was some uncontrollable force of nature. He sighed and just nodded. "It's alright." Right now they just needed to find a way out so that he could make his way back to his sibling. The blonde compared their situation to a escape the room game. The only difference between that and this is with the game you could just turn the computer off. "I can see if I can move the walls." Eric shifted earth as an ability. Maybe it would work in this case.



Image
Image
Evangeline wanted to get far away from Damian. Away from this room. Out of the city. Country if she needed too. Her eyes searched the room frantically for a way out. But she was coming up empty. It didn't help that Damian was talking to her. Talking about looking for Eva. About being trapped. He seemed abnormally calm for someone that was trapped in an unknown place. She had half a mind to blame him for her condition, but the way he talked about being trapped meant that this wasn't his doing. But he was definitely going to use it to his advantage. Evangeline wanted to try and blow down a wall. Or blow him away. Anything. But she was afraid to use her powers. Or to move. Being around Damian paralyzed her. If she had a voice she would scream, but it seems as though he has taken it away from her. As he stepped toward her she took a step back. Eva needed the distance. The distance would keep her sane.



Image
Image

Matthew smile diminished when Remi didn't seem as happy to see him as Matt was to see Remi. Actually he was feeling hurt that Remi believe Matt had anything to do with this sick joke. They were trapped with, what it appears to be, no way out. Matthew wouldn't have time to plan a joke this elaborate. Not to get his crush to talk to him. Not for anything in the world. "I don't know. I showed up hear just like you did." Matthew explained trying not to sound hurt. He shoved his hands in his pockets and started to walk around the room they were in. There had to be some way out. Some kind of way. Being trapped wasn't an option for Matty. His sister would need him to sing her a lullaby. He hummed for a little before looking at Remi. "Any ideas on how to get out?" He was hoping Remi would help.

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.



Image
Image

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.



Image
Image

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."



Image
Image

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.



Image
Image

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.



Image

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
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.



Image

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.

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."

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

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.

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.

Image

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.

Coincidence? Delaney shook her head. That wasn't even a possibility to her. There was no way she, her cousin, and all their friends or people they knew happened to have special abilities. They were all from the same area, basically went to the same school, and living near each other. This was planned. “Not at all. There’s a reason why we were chosen and not other people, and frankly,” She turned her body so she was facing him completely. ”I don’t think I want to know.” The reason why they had been chosen was a story for another day, one she would maybe listen to after whatever needed to be done was done. Delaney turned her head and yawned into her hand. She blinked and turned back to Eric.

Exhaustion hit her and she tried to shake it off. She glanced around the room looking for a clock. She was surprised she couldn’t find one. It had to be late. It had already been late when she went to Eric and Eva’s, so what time could it have been now? It had to be early in the morning. “Would it be rude to leave and try to find a bed?” She whispered quietly to Eric, not wanting to disrupt those still grieving. She hoped he would say yes. She wanted to talk to him even though she was so tired.




Image

Image


Ophelia reluctantly calmed down and Nathan couldn’t be more relieved. He knew she had been about ready to tear the room apart. He watched as the fireball disappeared and he could feel the heat radiating off her body weaken. Good. She’s back. He grinned at her, and his smile only widened when she wrapped her arms around him. She was just ready to murder someone, and now she was back to her loving self. Oh, how she never failed to impress him.

He held her and stayed like that until he heard a yawn escape from her. Despite the situation, he let out a barely audible chuckle. He pulled back slightly, placed a hand on the side of her face, and let his thumb stroke her cheek. ”Someone’s tired.” He looked at the exists and then back at his girlfriend. It seemed as though some were already making their way out of the ballroom. He watched as Mattie left, soon followed by a now calm Remi. Nathan looked at Willow and made a mental note to catch up with her later. He needed to talk to her, and also thank her for saving a possessed Remi. He turned his attention back to Ophelia. ”Why don’t we try to find you a bedroom? There has to be one in here somewhere. It’s late, anyways.” It had to be around 2, maybe even 3 in the morning.




Image

Image


The slap was way louder than Willow had anticipated. Willow smacked him and it seemed as if the room froze. Willow just stared at her best friend. Snap out of it already, she thought. It was Greyson who spoke first. ”Really Willow. Violence?” Willow looked at him, and then down at Kelsey. She looked terrified. Willow felt bad for scaring her, but it couldn’t be helped. Remi was on the verge of completely losing control, and someone had to step up. Willow opened up a link between her and Greyson, ignoring her throbbing head. “You should have seen what was in his head.” She could still feel the presence of his negative emotions, and she tried her best to forget about them but couldn’t.

She saw Remi snap out of it and she gave herself a mental pat on the back. He mouthed a thank you to her, and she gave a nod. “It’s what I’m here for.” She sadly smiled, answering both Remi and Greyson with her comment. She didn’t want to leave Remi by himself, and she tried to follow Greyson’s lead with teasing. How effective it was, she couldn’t even imagine. She heard the soft sound of music and she turned her head to see what, or who the source was. She saw Eva and Lucas dancing and she couldn’t hold back the smile taking over her face. Maybe she could get Eva to teach Lucas everything she knows.

By the time Willow looked back, Remi was gone, and her eyes landed on Ezra and Cami. It seemed as though Cami’s eyes were elsewhere, and she followed them over to Nathan and Ophelia. Willow knew how Nathan felt towards Cami, but she didn’t know how Cami felt towards him. Maybe there was emotionally something between them stronger than friends. Willow turned on her heels and went back to her son and Eva’s dance session.

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
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
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

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.

​Delaney couldn't be more relieved when Eric turned his attention to the whole group and brought up getting a good night's rest. So he was in agreement with her, and it wouldn't be rude. She looked around and saw how worn out and defeated everyone looked. Yes, some sleep was definitely needed right now. She could feel her shoulders start to sag in her posture and she smiled at Eric. He would come look for a room with her and they could talk more tomorrow. Maybe during training, whatever that consisted of. She knotted her fingers and started towards the exit with Eric by her side. She didn't tell anyone where she was going. She would see them all tomorrow.

The hallways were long and confusing and after a while, each hallway blended into the next and Delaney couldn't even keep track of where she was. The mansion was a maze and there were millions of doors she didn't feel like checking individually. At least she was with Eric. If she had gone with anyone else, she would have been complaining out pouting by now. She kept her face placid and watched the halls blended into one another as they walked. "This place is enormous." She didn't mind just walkin around, potentially lost. She got to spend more time with Eric. It wasn't bad at all.

Nathan willingly let Ophelia go to Cami and Ezra. He watched as the two girls embraced and he looked around the room. Just then, Eric suggested everyone better get some rest. At least Nathan wasn't the only one with that idea. It was odd knowing Eric, Ezra, Remi, and Greyson were going to be in charge. He never thought he would see them instructing others. He was glad they were picked though. They would be good leaders. Nathan just hoped Remi would be okay. He couldn't even imagine the pain he must be feeling.

He glanced around the room and watched the others. He saw Willow standing with Eva and he thought about going over to her. He knew Lucas would be happy to see him, and he had to talk to the boy's mother anyways. He could talk to her while he waited on Ophelia. Cami looked pretty bad, if not terrible from devastation, and it could take his girlfriend a while to calm their friend down. Cami started crying again and Ezra left his cousin alone with Ophelia. He walked over to Willow and Nathan decided just to talk to her in the morning. Lucas was looking worn out, and Willow didn't look too hot herself. It had been a long day.

Willow was glad to see Lucas having fun in such a stressful situation. Eva had kept him busy and she couldn't be more grateful. She didn't want her son to see her being violent, especially with those he was close with. What would he think if he had seen her hit Remi? She came back over and Lucas tightly wrapped his small arms around her leg. She smiled and when she looked up to thank Eva, Ezra was right next to them. She hadn't seen him walking towards them, but she didn't mind. "I'm going to help Cami find a room or some sort of place to sleep, so I'll see you tomorrow." Willow nodded her head. "Good luck trying not to get lost. I'll see you then." He then leaned down to Lucas and asked to play with him tomorrow. The little boy smiled excitedly."Well, duuhhh!". Willow returned the small smile Ezra gave her, and then he was gone again.

Eric made an announcement and Eva's voice snapped Willow out of it. "I will go with you to find a room." Willow nodded. "I'm fine with that. Thanks, for watching Lucas." She was glad Eva was so willing to look after him. Lucas yawned and Willow could feel her son's grip loosen around her leg. She leaned down and put her arms underneath his armpits, lifting him up into her arms and holding him against her chest. "Come on buddy, time for bed." Lucas wrapped one arm lazily around her neck and leaned his head on her shoulder. She could hear and feel his breath become more shallow, and she turned to Eva. "Let's go. The sooner, the better."

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

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.

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."

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
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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

Delaney couldn’t help but smile as Ezra clapped for her. She bowed her head politely as he did so, and then he soon made a comment about him being around plant life a lot and her eyes widened in surprise and delight. Not many willingly went out of their way to go outside and garden or take care of plants. In her eyes, the only time people, mainly teens, were around trees was when they were lounging around or making out under them. She was glad some appreciated nature and it’s fruit like her. She was glad one of those people was Ezra. They could definitely be friends now.

He went on to explain about his gifts and mentioned being shy about them. She wondered why, but he quickly followed his statement with Willow insulting him with Twilight. Delaney rolled her eyes. Leave it to Willow to insult someone about the coolest and best thing about them. Delaney didn’t understand her pink haired friend sometimes, but she always had a laugh with her. He closed his eyes and she stared at him. Before she could really guess what he was going to do, Ezra started glowing and Delaney covered her hand with her mouth. She certainly knew what Willow meant with her reference. He continued to glow and then the sky started changing. She watched the colors changed through the leaves in awe. A soft light blue, a deeper blue, a reddish purple, and a deep navy blue flashed across the sky before her eyes within seconds. Stars twinkled and Delaney glanced quickly to check that Ezra was doing this and the sky wasn’t actually going to collapse on them. He made it look effortless. She shook her head slightly as the sky returned to its original state and just smiled. She didn’t even know what to say. She was glad he spoke first. “Cosmic bodies send cosmic energy.” Delaney laughed slightly, remembering the Twilight comment. “That was amazing! Willow’s right, you are the real life Edward Cullen. How did you discover you could do that?” She tilted her head to the side as she looked at him. She looked at him for a few seconds before standing up on the branch and then starting to pick the ripest apples and placing them gently in her basket.

Nathan and Willow conversed and joked quietly until they heard someone approaching them. Nathan was just about finished his food when Greyson and Kelsey joined them. “Hope you all don’t mind, Kelsey and I joining you.” Nathan shook his head. “The more the merrier!” Nathan’s eyes flickered to Kelsey and he grinned. She was very cute. He had never seen her before, but he guessed that was something Greyson preferred to keep quiet. Lucas shifted himself in Nathan’s lap so he was closer to Kelsey. Nathan let him do so and adjusted himself so he was now sharing the seat with his godchild. The three year old smiled at the other child politely when she ran over. She started eating and he stopped shortly to watch her, then greeted her enthusiastically, “Hi, Kelsey!” Willow could tell he was happy to be around Kelsey, especially since she was the only other child in the house. Willow finished chewing the food in her mouth and swallowed before greeting Greyson. “Not at all. It seems we didn’t have a choice in the matter, though.” She smirked at him and took a sip of her drink. It was easy to joke around with Greyson. She didn’t have any reason to not like him, and he and Remi were close so it made it easier for her to become comfortable around him. Just then, the light through the window started to become brighter, the sky a deeper blue, and then that faded, becoming a light purple, only to fade into a deep black color. Willow and Nathan watched as the stars shone in the sky through the window and Nathan looked around slightly. Lucas was staring out the window, happily chewing some pancakes, but staring wide eyed. Willow had a blank face as she watched the sky. Nathan turned his head to look at his girlfriend. Ophelia was still with Cami and not too far away. If something was coming and about to hurt all of them, he hoped he would be able to get to the two on time to protect them both. Willow stared as the sky changed. When the stars came out she couldn’t help but smile. The nighttime was her favorite time of day. Whatever was happening with the sky, she liked it and was grateful. It was a beautiful thing, to go to bed at night with the stars and wake up and eat with the stars.

He heard the frantic footsteps as he turned the corner of the hall. Damian stopped and listened as they faded and eventually ended. Eva had run out of there and he just grinned. He had a feeling the running would never end. Her fear would never stop, even if weakened, but that may not even happen. He couldn’t go to the kitchen, not yet. He could smell the food coming from there, and where there was food this early in the morning, there was people. Frankly, he didn’t want to. Being in a roomful of people he didn’t like wasn’t ideal to him. If Evangeline had gone there to be protected or calm herself down with the distance, he wouldn’t follow her. He wanted to watch her, see what she does and assure nothing happened to her. He was feeling famished, but he would make himself wait. It wasn’t anything he hadn’t done before. He walked throughout the maze of a mansion, finding his way around fairly well. Some halls blended together and it was easy to lose track of oneself, but he was managing. He let his feet carry him where they wanted, only allowing him to stop when he felt a hand on his shoulder. He turned his head to see his muse, Gravity. She obviously did not care much about his prior warning and restrictions with her. He turned to face her, giving her a rather irritated look. She brushed it off quickly and stared him in the eyes, taking her hand off him. What exactly do you plan to do with that girl? Damian couldn’t resist the small smile and dark chuckle that escaped him. “I’m going to do exactly as I told her I would, train her. I will test her and see if she can handle it, but of course I’m going to be getting something out of it as well.” Gravity angrily furrowed her eyebrows at him. She opened her mouth to say something about him hurting her, but he raised a hand and cut her off. “When you teach a child how to ride a bike, they will get a few injuries, will they not? When you train someone, they will also get a few injuries.” He grinned and turned his back on her, leaving her in the middle of the hallway. He already knew his muse was going to be a nuisance. If she didn’t like him having a conversation with Evangeline, Damian knew Gravity would never approve of the training sessions. He didn’t care, though. He would try to deal with her if the time came to do so.

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.
