On the bus, I had to sit next to Natalie. Natalie was a little too friendly... especially towards me. When nobody was looking she mind controlled me and made me kiss her. "Focus Natalie!" Chantal always said when Natalie started to flirt. Natalie scowled at Chantal then said, "You're no fun Chantal." Chantal responded by saying, "Damn right I am! Please stop flirting with him." Natalie smiled then said, "Why? Do you like him?" Chantal glared at Natalie then said, "Not in the way that you do." Natalie smiled for the second time and said, "Then why can't I have him?" Chantal responded. "Because...
"You're not like yourself." Mason huffed, swinging under my leg and dodging a blast of cool, icy wind. I attempted a shrug and he held up his hand in a symbol to take a break. This was me. A fighter, a supernatural, and a bad ass. Well, the new me. Since that time they said I passed out, it felt like I came back to life in a new mind. A stronger mind. That and I found some giant textbooks under Mason's bed that I've flipped through occasionally.
"You're acting different too. " I told him, poking his shoulder and moving behind him.
I woke up shakily, knowing that Mason probably told Delta when he left my room last night, and that means that Derek probably knows now too. I sat up slowly, my vision blurry. Why was it so hot in my room? As my eyes adjusted from their sleepy state, I could probably rephrase my thoughts. Why was it so cold in here?! I looked around in a daze. My entire room was covered inches thick in layers of ice and snowy powder. The curtains looked like frozen pillars and the window was tightly sealed. Slowly, I began to feel claustrophobic as I turned to my door. It was covered by so many layers of ice...
I woke up from my nap to find Mason laying next to me with his head propped up on his elbow as he played with a blue strand of my hair. I gazed back into his mesmerizing gaze. He gave me a weak smile and I returned it.
"Hey there sleeping beauty." He whispered.
"Hey. " I replied quietly, still feeling rather tired. Leaning down, Mason gave me a soft kiss when the door opened and our older siblings walked in, groaning and turning around as Derek walked back into the hallway.
With nothing to do and feeling a sudden sense of organization, I decided to clean my room. It was weird with having Mason watching me every now and again from his window, then hearing Derek and Delta laughing and doing who knows what in his room across the hall. Taking the last ounce of patience I had left, I got up and shut my door, then picked up a giant bundle of dirty clothes and tossed them into my laundry basket before going to the mess of shoes at the bottom of my closet when mom came in. She was barefoot and wearing sweats. Her hair was a mess from a hard days work and she had bags...
Someone was gently shaking me awake and I pried open one eyes, looking at a blurry Derek. I gave a weak smile, hoping that today I would be able to forget the haunting scene of yesterday.
"C'mon Simka. Training day." He said. Hearing Derek above all people say my Seeker's name made me jump upright. I pointed a shaky finger at him and scooted back in my bed until I pressed against the headboard.
"How... how did you..."
"Mason told me everything." He said before I managed to the find the words to finish my question. "He's waiting downstairs." He...
I practically sprung out of bed with a loud siren. I looked around my room, wide-eyed until I spotted Derek standing near my dresser with his phone. He tapped the screen a few times and the annoying noise stopped. I groaned and plopped back down, throwing a pillow over my face.
"Sarah, get up." He said. I groaned again in response.
"Oof!" I grunted as a heavy weight fell on top of me and poked at my side a few times, causing me to jerk around. Pulling the pillow off of my head, I gazed up at Mason looming over me with a wide grin on his face. I couldn't help but...
I opened my eyes to find myself standing on an earthy platform with a ring of fire around me. Inches above my head was a long pointed piece of ice. And it wasn't melting. Looking around, it appeared that I was in some sort of cave with clouds floating around on the roof of it. As it appeared, I was at the entrance. The sky was split in half, one side day and the other night. What was going on? My first thought was that this had to be a dream and I pinched my arm. Nothing changed. My hair whisked around in a breeze that wasn't there. I stared up at the sky and where it split when a suddenly...
