"Hey, Hollowshade Girl." He whispered. I felt so clumsy running into him... So not like me. I guess I was just not expecting to see him. In here. At all. His hands were wrapped around my waist to stop me from falling back and I stared into his fair hazel eyes through the dark. He was so close, but all I could do was asked one question. A question I ask every time I see him. (which is almost never.)

"What are you doing here?" He shrugged his broad shoulders.

"Could ask you the same thing."

"Well, it is my school." I countered, crossing my arms. He didn't let go of my waist and I was started to get the feeling he probably wasn't going to. He shrugged again.

"So."

"So what are you doing here?" I asked again.

"Why are you up this late?" He asked, dodging my question again. I just stared at him.

"Couldn't sleep. " I stated. "What about you? Same excuse? Oh wait, I'm not supposed to know."

People down every turn
Pain inside their hearts
A girl with scars on her wrists
A boy with a knife in his chest
She hides in the dark
Wondering when the pain with end
He stands up to fight in defense
Only to get knocked back down again
She fights with her parents
They don't wanna support the child
She's left to fend for herself in the cold
Alone with the child
Do we see what we are doing when we say the things we say?
Do we see who we are hurting with the actions that we're taking?
What we need
Are broken families reconciled
We need hearts to mend, scars to heal and battles to end
We. Need. Love
To stand up for the broken
We. Need. Hope
To give a hand to the hopeless
We need the world to care.
What are we doing with the words we are saying?
Who are we changing
And what effects are they having?
Lets be the change.

The past is the past, and no matter who you are, or where you are- it will ALWAYS find a way to haunt you. Whether you like it or not.
Kacie Taylor is what her best friends call a psych. If something bad is going to happen, or someone strange is around, Kacie knows. And her nightly visions get harder and harder to control- more or less understand as they gain a new roommate. Beth Hollow. As Kacie and her two best friends, May and Kayla, are on their own mission to solve the reasons behind the kidnapping attempts on Kacie, they're trying to learn more about the mysterious Beth. And how she just happens to know the strange and mysterious Colton who tends to show up whenever Kacie is in danger.
---------
"Stop giving us that face Kacie. " May said, poking my cheek. I blinked a couple times and looked at her.
"What face?"
"The face that says you're going psychic again. And whenever that happens, something bad tends to follow."
----------
"Did you see anything?" May asked curiously. Taking a deep breath, I looked between my two friends, then at Beth that just came out of the bathroom and shook my head.

I was terrified that Delilah had found me. "Oh no. Not her." I thought to myself. I turned around quickly to see that Delilah was right in front of me. "At last. We meet for second time my child." Delilah grabbed my arm and said, "Come with me! We have much to work on." Then, out of nowhere, a dagger was thrown at Delilah's shoulder. "Ugh!" Delilah's arm was now dripping with her blood. "Curse you terrorist!" She screamed. Chantal was standing there with her sword drawn. She then said, "Leave him alone witch!" Delilah smiled, then started to taunt her. "Do you honestly think that you can protect him? He'll be mine soon Chantal. You might want to back off now, while still can." Chantal, now getting agitated, said, "The Earth-God is not something that want to trifle with. His power cannot be contained by anything." Delilah smiled, then said, "True. But, however, his power can and will be wielded." "You may be able to wield him, but you'll never control him, unless he lets you." Chantal started. Before Chantal continued, she looked at me, back at Delilah, then said, "You'll never get him as long as I live!" Delilah grabbed Chantal by the throat while enraged. "Then you'll die...

"Okay... so let me get this straight. I can somehow create ice out my freaking hands from sleeping with you?" I asked, pointing at Mason with a shaky finger. He shook his head and stood up as the flame in his hand disappeared.
"No, you already had these powers. They just didn't resurface until now."

"Why don't we make a deal. I want you to meet me here in three days, and bring your lover boy with you. Then you can give me your answer on if you want to join me or not."

It is now my sixteenth birthday and like on tenth birthday, I received a life-changing surprise. But unlike my last surprise where Delilah... Well, you know what happened, but anyway back to the current events. Unlike the last one, my surprise was that was being relocated. I went with a new family by the name of the Wilkonsons. "Welcome Cesar!" Said Mary, my new foster mother. "Thanks, miss..." I started before she cut me off. "Please. Just call me mom." Mary said. "Okay mom." I responded. "Allow me to introduce you to our family." Mary motioned me to follow her up the stairs. When we arrived up the stairs, I noticed a girl in the room across from mine. Then I began to ask Mary. "Who's that girl?" Mary stopped to answer my question. "Cesar. I'd like you to meet your foster sister. Thi..." before Mary could finish, the girl interrupted her. "Come on mom, I think I can introduce myself to him." Mary shrugged her shoulders and smiled. "Okay. I'll leave you two alone for a moment." As Mary walked downstairs, the girl smiled then said, "My mom is weird isn't she?" Before I could answer her she cut me off, then reached out her hand to me, "I'm Chantal. What's your name?" I accepted the...

Hello! I am Cesar. I'm a being of infinite power, who just wants to fit in with the crowd. Anyway, being really powerful is really cool, but it also means I have to fight those who want to use my powers for numerous purposes, which I will discuss along the way. Anyway, my story began when I was 9 years old. The day I entered foster care was the best day of my life. But, I would soon find out that my whole life would change on my tenth birthday.
"Not so fast Cody! Slow down!" I said, trying to keep up with my foster brother. "Try to keep up Cesar! You don't want to lose for the third time do you?" Cody taunted. "No. I'm not going to lose to you again Cody!" I yelled boldly. "Oh, is that so?" Cody sneered. "Test your luck bro!" Cody yelled over his shoulder. I noticed that Cody was almost at the the finish line which was just a tree, so I dropped into a sliding position, slid past Cody, and touched base. "Wow Cesar! I'm impressed. You beat me. Let's go home." As Cody was turning around I tapped him on the shoulder and said, "Wait! I think we've got time for one more thing." Cody smiled at me then said, "Sure. What do you have in mind?" I turned around in all directions...

The sound of being in a car came to me softly at first, then we made a turn, making my head move to the side. The car became more real, the uncomfortable seats became more real, the expression on my father's face while driving was the worst reality. That sudden middle-gut singe of anxiety and pain hit me as if I just went down a roller-coaster. I looked out the window to my side of the seat and another feeling came over me, I knew this road, I knew these trees and the way the sun shone through them. I was back, somewhere that I didn't want to be. I knew that we were back in America.

We continued to drive straight down the road, the 30 foot trees flew past my window as we moved. I kept my eyes on the bare parts of the trees, imagining how fast I could run through them.

" Grandpa should be happy to see you." His tone didn't sound too happy.

" I thought he hated me as much as you did." I left him with that. He shot a glance at the back of my head, I could see in the reflection of my window; a mix of concern and surprise. I felt like a child talking back to their parent, but I knew that he couldn't smack me across the face. He turned his face...

"Espresso or Mocha?" Aaron asked as he was standing at open cabinet doors that hung from the ceiling above the counter. He looked under the cabinets at me, waiting for an answer. I was sitting with my feet propped up on the couch in the living room. I was out of my gear and in some comfortable clothes.

" Ummm." I thought for a moment and looked around as I contemplated.

" Mocha, I guess." I answered looking at the coffee table sitting next to the couch. Aaron chuckled through his breath. I scowled at him.

" What's so funny?"I asked with my arms crossed. He looked back into the cabinets.

" Usually you're certain about everything you do. I never thought I would hear those words come out of your mouth." He chuckled again as he grabbed a small, cardboard box out of the cabinet.

" Are you implying that i'm stubborn or something?" I interrogated him sternly. He chuckled even harder, then turned around to the back counter.

The van revved up the hill and caused the engine to whine in some way familiar to me. My arm hurt like hell and my heart was beating so hard, I started to get frustrated with the rope around my hands and the bag on my head. I was getting light headed to the point of becoming loopy.

" Let me go you bastards let me-"

" There's no need for that kind of language, Prizmarine. I'm here now, it's fine." The bag was pulled off of my head, flinging my ponytail into my face. I was breathing hard from fright, it was dark in the back of the van, the front window, which was inaccessible because of the divider, only allowed the light in from the passing street lamps.

" England, wow. Hell of a trip to find you." I couldn't see his face. That voice, the tone, it sparked memory. Wait a minute-

" Now what was the reason to put us in this trouble ,Priz?" A light switched on, I flinched. There they were, those ice-cold, deep-sea, blue eyes that held secrets of their own. He was slouched against the wall of the van, arms crossed, which emphasized his muscles even more.

Sprinting down the street , breathing hard enough to make my lungs burst, my feet padded against the wet, asphalt. My breath clouded behind me; frigid cold air sliced past me. All I could think about was how close could they be now, where could I hide, would they find me and what would they do to me, where the hell was Aaron?

I halted onto the side walk facing an alley way , the walls dripped from icicles. The light at the end showed a way for me to go, but I had no time to think when screeching tires echoed down the street from the turnoff that I took. I took a second look at the alley and just booked it down the ramp. I almost ate some major shit when the bricked ground gave way to some ice. The van revved past the alley way but the immediate halt burned rubber and pulled the van back to the alley. Three or four men hopped out of the black van all wearing black wear or ski masks, and carrying sub machine guns and smaller hand guns strapped to their thighs. They had been ordering each other around in a different language.

"Aaand cut!" The producer said. I sighed and stepped off the set, walking towards the back door. "Semira, you did good. Are you sure this is the only film you want to produce?" I smiled sadly at the producer's question.

"Thank you, but I am sure. I will be going back home to Europe with my husband in the morning." I said.

"It's a shame, though. You played the part of Inali so well, I actually had a hard time remembering it was just a film." I smiled at his praise and turned to the man waiting for me at the back.

"Believe me, you have absolutely no idea. " I said as the man came over, shaking the producer's hand after giving me a kiss.

"Thank you for all this." He said. I began to walk slowly away towards the door.

"Donovan, let's hurry. " I called, taking a glimpse at the producer's face as he heard what I just said and wondering if it was just a coincidence. I smiled and took Donovan's hand as he hurried over and held the door open for me. "How was Walter?" I asked. Donovan gave a smile.

***FIVE YEARS LATER***

Antonio:

Laura and I practically had to sneak Donovan and Inali out of the castle with how heavily guarded it was. Not to mention, there was almost every member of the Kingdom's leadership board that was merely refusing to allow the King and Queen to leave. As much as I can enjoy kids, it was rather difficult to try and 'kidnap' the royals with a whining five-year-old. I now understand why Inali had second thoughts about raising their son in the palace. But I have to admit, they made some great parents. Once we were safely out of sight of the towering castle walls, I punched Donovan heavily on his shoulder.

"Ow." He grunted.

"That was for not telling me that you got my sister pregnant. " I said almost too coldly. Inali picked up her son and sighed at us.

"Antonio, you've punched him for the same reason every time you've seen him in the past five years." She said. I shrugged my shoulders.

I woke up running to the bathroom again and Donovan was by my side instantly. After I cleaned my mouth out, I looked at him through the mirror. He seemed worried.

"Are you sure that you aren't sick?" He asked. I gave him a tired smile and turned to look at him. His eyes never left me. "Cuz you keep waking up like this in the middle of the night at least a few times a week. It really has me worried." I placed my hands on his chest and sighed.

"I promise you I am perfectly fine. All of this will pass in eight months." I told him, kissing him quickly and walking back over to his bed.

"I have the feeling they will be the longest eight months of my life." He muttered, coming to lay back down next to me. I smiled and closed my eyes to get some sleep. There was a prodding at my shoulder and I sat up abruptly. "You really need to start taking it easy. " Donovan whispered, massaging my shoulders. I sighed.

"If you keep doing that, I may fall back asleep. " I said. He stopped and kissed my cheek before climbing off the bed and pulling his shirt on. I got fully dressed and took my bow and quiver in my hands.

It was cutting close to the end of winter break and we were all standing around the room that Inali was staying in as Mr. Walner checked her to be completely sure she was in good enough of a position to be back on her feet permanently. I thanked him again as he left the room and turned back to my half sister that sat up in her temporary bed. We may be half siblings, but when she got back, we didn't exactly make the wisest decisions. But after that, we agreed we would move past it all and just be siblings. Although it was kind of difficult for both of us, I had to admit that much.

"I'm glad you're back Inali. " Laura said for the two hundred and fifty-eighth time in the past seventy-nine days. Inali replied the same way that she has each time with a small smile and squeezed Laura's hand. "Dinner is in an hour, so if you're up for it, I put some clothes in the closet for you." Inali gave her another smile and a quick nod, watching her leave with Antonio that looked at me skeptically. Ever since we found out that he, Inali, and I were related and he saw us kiss the first day she got back, he has had his superstitions for whenever Inali and I were alone. He was right to...

"Well, I trust you all had a good chat. " Migizi said in a light mood. She was going to enjoy this, wasn't she? We all glared at her as she looked at us each in turn. Turning to the broken woman in the room across from Laura, she stepped a bit closer. "Well, do you want to tell them what's going to happen Vorom?" Migizi asked her.

"That's not my name!" She screamed ferociously, lashing forward. Her chains rattled and Donovan and I exchanged a glance. Her voice was rough and unrecognizable. Her hair moved swiftly with her struggle to try and get to Migizi, displaying her face for only a brief moment. It was dirty and bruised. Her blue eyes so bright in contrast to the darkness in the room and her eyes red from blood and the lack of sleep. That was not Inali... It couldn't be.

"So you have said. " Migizi replied cooly. Well, if you aren't going to tell your friends, oh. Let me rephrase. Your brothers and friend, let's let them find out for themselves. Shall we?" A deep, menacing growl came from Inali's throat, surprising all of us. Migizi nodded towards the door behind me and it opened. A man came in with a bag too small for torturing tools. I had seen it...

An hour before daylight, Laura woke up and we stomped out the remaining embers of our fire. Packing up the few things we got out last night, we left our spot and continued on our journey. The storm died down some more the further we got from the Kameer Aksa village so we managed to pick up the pace.

"Where exactly are we going?!" Laura yelled over the wind that flew passed us as we galloped. I looked back ever so slightly.

"I guess we'll find out!" I hollered back. An unsure look crossed her eyes but was gone just as quickly as it came. Donovan slowed next to a single tree among the whiteness of the plain and Laura and I did the same. "Everything alright?" I asked. Donovan yanked something out of the bark of the tree and held it out for us to see. A black and red arrow.

"These are just like the ones that Inali used when she was dressed as Vorom. " Donovan told us, looking around the open space that surrounded us like an ocean.

"You think she came this way?" Laura asked, taking the arrow and placing it in the quiver on her back with her own. Donovan continued to look around for a moment, then grabbed a hold of his reins again.

When I woke up, Laura was standing near the bed with her back to me as she pulled her shirt over her head. I reached my hand up and slowly ran a finger along the scar that went diagonally across her lower back. When she was covered, she turned back around to face me sat on the edge of the bed, swatting my hair lazily.

"C'mon sleepy. You need to get dressed." She said. I groaned tiredly and quickly tugged her down onto the bed, wrapping my arms around her to keep her from moving away. She placed her hands on my chest and tried to push but failed. "Antonio, let go." She struggled.

"Nah. I'm actually pretty comfortable right here. " I said playfully. Laura let out a huff of air and I waited until she stopped struggling to give her a long kiss.

"You know, I actually would kick your ass, but am only showing restraint because you're injured." She said. I raised an eyebrow.

"Who's fault is that?" I asked. She lowered her head and I just took into consideration how much guilt she held for it. "Hey," I said, lifting her chin with a finger. "It wasn't yours. " I said, searching her eyes. She stared steadily back.

Antonio:

I had managed to fall asleep after Krasivaya brought me some water and herbs for the pain. I woke up with a stinging sensation coming from my left rib and I groaned, opening my eyes to see Alexandra sitting there, looking at me. Again. I attempted to sit up, leaning back against the headboard. Alexandra dipped a rag into a wooden bowl that sat in her lap. Ringing it out, she placed it on my left rib and I breathed in deeply. She looked at me again.

"What are you doing?" I grunted.

"Keeping your wounds clean." She replied. "Krasivaya went to bed a few hours ago." I nodded and sucked up air in between my clenched teeth as she raised the rag to my side again.

"What is that stuff?" I asked. She chuckled as I clenched the sheets tightly in my fist.

"Yarrow, White willow bark, and rubbing alcohol." She said, dipping the rag back into the bowl.

"No wonder it hurts. " I grumbled as she applied it again to the cut.

Once my eyes were open, all I saw was a pale light and felt a strong heat coursing all along my body. I would have sworn I had died if I didn't see the entrance to the cave and the fire a few feet away. I attempted to sit up but groaned in pain and slumped back down. Someone was at my side in seconds, holding a cold cloth to my forehead.

"Don't move." A soft and very familiar voice said. So, I did the opposite. Scrunching up my face from the pain, I sat up straight, and slowly, moved into a crouch. Then, I stood straight. She stood up slowly next to me. "You have a fever."

"Yeah? Whose fault is that?" I asked, moving towards the direction I was sure was the extra room where I was tortured. I have to be pretty numb to still be able to walk. Even with using the wall for support. The ground in there was glistening red as I made my way over to look at the place.

"It's yours, Antonio." She stated. "If you didn't lie so much, that might not have happened."

After managing to convince Laura and Antonio that Megedagik was Inali, as frustrating as it sounded, Antonio checked on the calculations he's apparently been working on since he 'randomly' got coordinates to an unmarked area which led us straight to where we were staying. So, Antonio believes that she was trying to tell us where she was. But if she was, then she wouldn't have told me to stop looking. Not that I was looking for her exactly. I couldn't stop apologizing to Itahu and Manipi for the trouble and for the fact we had to leave. Itahu told us that she was expecting something like this to happen and that she was sorry for not telling us sooner who she really was. I didn't blame her, though. With as intimidating as Inali has become, of course she would do as Inali asked. Once we all had our things packed and we walked into the living room, Itahu handed me a large bundle.

"Take this, please. It should last the three of you a few days until you reach a village some miles from here. I wish you good luck." I took it gratefully and handed it to Laura to put in her bag. Manipi led them to the stable as Itahu took my hands. "Please understand that some things can change...

"Antonio!" Donovan yelled over the howling wind. I looked over and he pointed to a small wooden shape off in the distance. I turned my horse in the direction, following him and Laura. We had been traveling for two days, and above all times, now the blizzard decides to pick up.

We stopped in front of a small wooden cottage in the middle of the icy bliss. As soon as we hopped off our horses, the door swung open and an older looking, native woman there, pulling a thick fur coat over her, she said a few words to Donovan, which I hadn't heard and led us around to the back where there was a stable without any stalls. Three horses were already in there, and we added ours to them. As the woman closed the tall doors again, she led us back around to the front of the house and brought us inside. The house was bigger than I thought. Everything was wooden except for things such as rugs, lamps, cushions and some other household appliances. A fire was going in the stove and candles were lit all around the house.

As soon as we walked out of the electronic room, Antonio rushed to his guest room. I hoped he could remember the way, considering how big the Estate was. I looked over to Laura as she watching him run off.

"You seem worried about him. " I observed. She looked at me with big, genuine eyes.

"I am. Ever since I found out he could fight, all I can do is worry about him." She said. I patted her shoulder a few times.

"Don't worry. Antonio will be Antonio. He has a side to him that none of us knew until now. Not to mention, he is a guy. He'll be adventurous no matter what. That's just something you can't change." She nodded in response.

"I'm just going to make sure he's okay." She said, and quickly walked down the hall in the direction that Antonio disappeared.

Antonio:

There was a light knock on the door as I sat, looming over my map with a pen in my mouth, trying to figure things out.

"Antonio?" A voice asked before I heard the door click shut behind them. I wrote a few more calculations in my journal before sticking the pen back in my mouth and moving the protractor and little compass again. I...

Laura:

Antonio wasn't next to me when I woke up. When I looked around, I noticed he wasn't even in the room. Opening the curtain briefly, I noticed the sun just beginning to rise. Breakfast wouldn't be ready for another few hours. Was he with the horses? Maybe he found something to help them. I gazed out towards the stable, but the door was shut and still locked from what I could see. Although the guard was not out there. Something was wrong. I ran out the room and began to knock on Donovan's door. Slowly at first, but then more frantically. He opened it, looking like he just woke up.

"Is Antonio with you?" I quickly asked. He furrowed his eyebrows.

"Um, no. Why?"

"He wasn't with me when I woke up. " I said, realizing how weird that sounded. Donovan furrowed his eyebrows at me. "I couldn't sleep. " I said shortly, leaving that as the only explanation I would give. I just then noticed that his hair was buzzed. "And, what happened to your hair?" I asked. He shrugged.
