Athena’s P.O.V.
As we all stood around in our elemental spots, Elle was handing us all a candle. Our Aunt Marie and James stood in the middle. As Elle approached me, she told me that I would be starting the ritual again.

“I’ll repeat what you have to say if you need me too.” She told me, handing me a green candle as I gave her a smile. I felt comfortable doing it by myself, but I needed to know what I had to say, especially since we are doing the ritual to change vampire back to humans.

“Is everything the same as the last ritual we did?” I asked as she nodded.

“The only thing that will be different, is that after we summon all the elements into the circle, you need to say one more thing before it is complete. I’ve already given James and Marie the potion. We are ready when you are.” Elle smiled as she headed over Roxi, handing her candle.

Each of us lit our candles. Dean smirked as I gazed over at him. I gave him a smiled and then took a deep breath to relax me. I was so nervous that something would go wrong. I closed my eyes and chanted: ‘Ego autem in terra circulus receperint.’

I opened them to see my flame get brighter. I carefully placed my candle on top of my stone, that glowed green. Slowly, I walked towards Roxi, as she gave me a smile, but I knew she was nervous as I. I closed my eyes once more and chanted: ‘Nunc receperint Aeris circulus.’

I opened them and saw her flame get brighter, as did the stone she stood on. I looked over to Elle as she nodded with approval. I then headed over to Dean. I noticed a smile appeared on his face, as I approached.

Standing in front of him, once again, I closed my eyes and chanted: ‘Nunc receperint pinguibus ignis Adfixus circulus.’

His flame grew brighter, as I slowly walked away towards my brother. He looked nervous, but seeing how I was, he relaxed his shoulders. Closing my eyes, I chanted: ‘Nunc receperint aqua circulus.’

I smiled how my brother flame got brighter. I headed towards the center of the circle where James and Aunt Marie were standing. I lifted the candle and stood in front of them. My Aunt Marie gave me a soft smile before I closed my eyes and chanted: ‘Nunc receperint Spiritus circulus.’

All of the elements started to glow as the ritual was almost completed. I looked over at Elle, as she had a smile on her face. “Now, Marie and James, you will need to stand looking at each other, holding the purple candle. Once Athena is back on her stone holding her candle, you will all chant ‘Beati eritis. Reduc eos maledictio data apou.'”

I nodded as I handed the candle over to my Aunt and James. The stood facing each other as I headed back to my candle. Once I was there, I closed my eyes and we all chanted: ‘Beati eritis. Reduc eos maledictio data apou.’, three times.

Opening my eyes, I saw everyone’s candles were out, but the Spiritual candle wasn’t. The Spiritual stone was also the only stone that was glowing. We all stood there amazed. I didn’t understand if we did it or not, but Elle seemed excited.

“Well, are we human or not?” James asked as Elle came towards him and smiled. I looked over and saw my Aunt Marie smiling and started to cry some tears.

“Well, you aren’t just human now, you are both the new Spiritual Element Leaders we have been waiting for.” Elle said as she blew out the candle and smiled at them both. She looked at James and smirked. “I knew there was something about you that was special, young man, but I never thought in a million years that we would see this happen in a ritual!”

I smiled as Dean came over and hugged me. His scent wrapped around me wanted me to kiss him, but I returned the smile. He leaned closer to my ear and whispered, “Come with me, I want to show you something.” I looked up and nodded.

Roxi and Logan kept talking as Elle was taking care of the candles and explaining to James everything that we had already heard. Dean and I snuck out, him holding my hand, as we laughed. I had no idea what he wanted to show me, but I was curious to know.

No one was in the main hall, but we headed toward the Fire Hall, which I have never been. The longer we walked down the hall, the hotter it got. Once we entered, it we were walking on a stone bridge, he held my hand as we crossed it.

I looked up to see a stone-like castle, covered in vines that climbed the walls. We started walking up the steps as he let go of my hand to open the old wooden door. My eyes were amazed at how incredible the castle was.

“Coming?” Dean asked as I looked back at him, still amazed with his home. I have always loved castles and fairy tails, but this was in-between an evil castle and a kings castle. As I entered into it, we were in a throne type room, with two staircases that were on each side of his elemental throne chair.

Dean grabbed my hand, as we headed up towards the stairs. As we went through the hall, there were 3 rooms. The one of the left, was a library, the one on the right was an extra room, and the only in the middle had another giant wooden doorway. Entering inside of it, there was a master bedroom.

It wasn’t as messy as I thought it would be. I always thought there would be his clothes everywhere or the bed wasn’t made, but it was spotless. I was shocked. “I never expected your room to be so clean.” I said as he chuckled, laying on his bed.

“You think I was a slob?” He joked as I laughed.

“Well, a little, but I’m kinda jealous,” I said, laying down with him on the bed. “I wished I was more organized like you.” I looked over at him and held my head up by my arm.

“Maybe I’ll surprise you some time and do it randomly someday for you.” He smiled as I leaned over and kissed his cheek.

“I’d like that.” I replied, as he leaned into my face and placed a soft kiss on my lips. It was gentle but soft. When he pulled away, I was sad, knowing that I wanted more from him.

“So, what was it that you wanted to show me?”

“This, my hall. I’ve always liked your hall better since there is more to do than in here.” He spoke as he stood up and walked over to the balcony, looking over at a warm red colored water that was flowing down some rocks below.

I followed him, looking over at the view as well. “So, do you have any duties?”

“Yeah, but I usually don’t have to do them, unless Elle tells me too or I’m angry and want something I can put my angry out.” He paused and looked over at me. “I make weapons, tools, and mine a bit, but I rather be spending it with you.”

I felt my cheeks blush. I didn’t know what to say, other than I didn’t want to make any promises to him that I couldn’t keep. Ricky was still alive, but I have felt that I have mourned him. Dean, on the other hand, is something that could be very dangerous for me to act on.

I gave him a friendly smile. “I’ve got to go. I want to see my parents for a little bit. Thank you for showing me your hall. I love the old fashion style it has to it.” I then left his castle and headed back to the main hall.

Unforgotten – Chapter 11

If you haven’t read Chapter 10, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/03/18/unforgotten-chapter-10/

Athena’s P.O.V.
“I can’t believe I’m going to do this,” James grunted, as I handed him his new daylight ring. He placed it back on his finger and glared at me. “If I burn into a million pieces, I’m coming back to haunt you.”
“James, she did it just the way I would of. I would be more worried about pissing her off.” Aunt Marie said as she smirked back at him. I always wondered if they had something going on? I can’t believe so after James caused Eli to died.
James then took a deep breath and slowly walked into the sunlight. I watched with fear, knowing that vampires can burn in the sunlight and I didn’t want another reason for my mother to hate me. I know she didn’t hate me, but deep down, she didn’t like what my brother and I were about to become.
James sat in the sun, not burning up and smiled. “It worked!” He exclaimed, he was like a little kid who had just seen snow for the first time. I smiled. I’m glad that it worked. He came up to me and hugged me. “Thank you so much! You have no idea how long I’ve spent in the shadows during the day.”
“Your welcome,” I said, as he released me. I looked over at Aunt Marie. “So, what’s next?”
She gave me a gentle smile. “Well, we have to get back on the road, now. I don’t want you guys to be seen by anyone with those markings on.” She said as we all got into the RV. I looked out the window and saw my parents arguing.
“Tanner, we need to go back home. I’ve been out of work for the past week and I-” My mother said, checking her phone, but my father interrupted.
“No, our children need us. I need you.” My father grabbed my mother’s hand, his eyes looked desperate. “Please, see if you can take another week off.”
“I can’t and I don’t want to! Tanner, don’t you see? Our children are turning into monsters and I don’t want to stand by and watch them died!” I was shocked that my mother even said that. “I love you, Tanner. I do, but I need to go.”
“Jade, it’s not safe for you to go home.” My father said as he held onto my mother’s hand. “Fuck your job, you can always find another one.”
“I don’t care, I’m going home. I want our normal lives back. You, the kids, and me.” She then paused. ” I wished you never went looking for your sister.” She pulled away from my father and opened one of the storage doors on the side of the RV and started heading to the bus station that was just across the street where we were parked.
My father started yelling for my mother, but she wouldn’t turn back around.
“Where’s Jade going?” James asked as my father came back onto the RV and shut the door.
“She’s going home.” My father sat down on at the table. “I tried to convince her to stay, but she won’t listen.” He looked at me and then over at Logan, grabbing each of our hands. “I’m not going anywhere. Where ever you need to go, I’m coming with you.”
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
As soon as our mother left, we kept driving. Since James and my Aunt Marie didn’t need to sleep, they took turns. James’ daylight ring was working perfectly fine. I made me glad that something I did, turned out just fine.
I looked out the window, after looking away from a few of the books we took from my Aunt’s house. We turned into a graveyard parking lot. As I kept looking forward, there was a giant tree, sitting in the middle of the graveyard.
I looked over at Logan and he was staring at it too. My Aunt Marie put the RV in the park. “Here we are.” She spoke as she smiled at both of us.
“Where are we?” I asked. Looking at the entrance of the graveyard gave me goosebumps.
“We are at the Witches Circle of Life. This is where all witches are safe from harm and also where you are both going to be working on the vampire cure.” I gave her a weird look as I noticed the tree was now glowing.
Logan and I quickly left the RV, as if we were drawn to it. I grabbed his hand as we looked forward at the now white leaf tree. We were about to start walking into the graveyard, but Aunt Marie stood in front of us, both.
“Wait, we need to talk before you go in there.” She said as I looked over at the tree and then back at her. “I can only be in there with you for a short amount of time if I drink this potion. If I go in there, I’ll only have about 4 hours or so to explain everything you need to know about it.”
“Then let’s go,” Logan said as he started to walk past the entrance.
“Logan, it’s not that simple. Once my 4 hours are up, you have to get me out of there. If I stay any longer, the older spirit witches can do whatever they want to me because I am a vampire.” She sighed. “I want to make sure that you guys know everything you need to know before going into there.”
Logan turned back around and looked at me. “When do you think we should go?” He asked as I thought about. The sooner we were in, the sooner we can figure out how to make the cure, but the longer it might take.
There was still so much that we both needed to know. More about vampires, about spells, about magic, and about our own kind. I looked over at Aunt Marie, I could tell she was worried about us going in there alone.
“How many days do you think we should wait? I asked. She thought about it but sadly came back.
“About a day or so, give or take. It depends if anyone knows you two exist.” She paused. “Whenever you feel ready, we will go in, I just want to make sure you guys are safe. There will be others who will fear you both because of your power.”
I looked over at Logan as he nodded. I knew he would agree to what I have to say. “We’ll wait until midnight, and then we should go in. It will give us time to learn more, but not long enough to be noticed.
Aunt Marie smiled. “Alright, let’s eat and fill your heads with as much knowledge as we can.”
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
I eyes fluttered open as I looked around. Everything seems different. All I saw was dark walls. All my senses felt heightened. I could see things I didn’t think I could ever imagine seeing.
Am I in heaven? Or is this hell? Whatever it is, I don’t ever want to leave, but then I thought of her. My Athena. I could fell my blood in my body start to warm up at even thinking about her.
I wanted to see her, but where am I? I got up from the floor I was laying on and walked closer until I heard someone walking by the door. I listened in as I could hear my mother’s voice. Was she dead? No, can’t be.
“I can’t believe we did this to him. I feel terrible.” She spokes as I heard her. I could hear her heartbeat fasten and my throat started to throb in pain. I was hungry, but for my mother?
“Savannah, we had to. He was dying and this was the only way to save him.” I recognized another voice, my father’s.
“A hybrid was really the only way? We could have sent him to the hospital and had them do their best to save them. You just want to make up for lost time.” A hybrid? What was my mother talking about?
“Our son is alive, honey. He will still alive until we pass on to the next world. He’ll be able to have a life, fall in love, and possibly have kids. He would’ve found out sooner if you didn’t lie to him about having cancer.” What was he talking about? I never had cancer. I was about done hearing this conversation.
I needed to find out answers, now. I tried to open the door, but it would’ve budged. “OW!” my hand started to burn, as I let it sit on the hande. I pulled it away and watched as my hand healed itself. “What the hell?”
What was going on with me? None of this was normal. What did they do to me? What am I? I looked around the room, seeing if I could find something to help me get out. Nothing. Nothing was in this room, but the blanket I was laying on.
I backed away from the door, took a deep breath and slammed into the door. It still wouldn’t break open. I turned around and saw a window, tried smashing that, still nothing. My blood boiled as I was furious at myself and my parents.
Pacing back and forth, I realized I still had my phone in my pocket. I quickly grabbed it and saw I had missed calls, voicemails, and messages. I quickly saw the first one from Athena:

Are you really gone? My heart is killing me. It aches and misses you.

Please, answer me. I can’t believe this is happening to me.

Ricky, I miss you.

My heart filled with joy that she still missed me, I tried to reply back, but I had no service. Damn it! Nothing is going right! I looked through more and more of the messages from Athena, but the last one really hurt.

Dear Ricky,
Whether you are dead or alive, this is the last message I will send to you. It’s been about 2 weeks since you have been gone or haven’t responded. Thinking about your day and night has brought me nothing, but sadness. I don’t know why you are still on my mind, but I have to get you out of it. I need to be focused because today, I am finally going to cure my Aunt. You will always have a piece of my heart, but I will never stop thinking about you.
Goodbye,
Athena

I threw the phone against the wall, as it broke into a bunch of little pieces. She thinks I’m dead and she doesn’t know the truth. More anger built up in my soul as I started pounding on the door.
“GET ME THE HELL OUT OF HERE!” I screamed. Still nothing, that was until I saw the door window open. I looked at my father with anger filled in my eyes. “What the fuck did you do to me?!”
“Hello, Son.” He gave me an evil smirk.

Logan’s P.O.V.
We all got into the RV, watching our Aunt Marie’s cottage go up in flames. I could feel how to sadden my Aunt Marie was that she was losing this place. This was her home. A place that I wished I could’ve to seem more of.
“Where to now?” I heard my father asked. Our parents weren’t getting along and my mom has been in the back room, ever since we had markings all over us. My Aunt Marie suggested that either she and James could drive during the night until one of us could make them some daylight rings.
“Well, first we have to get Ricky, then we have a long drive to the Spiritual Tree. Sooner we get there the better.” Marie said as she got up and walked over to my sister, who sat there, not speaking a word since we left. “Athena, you need to call Ricky’s phone again. If not, try his mother.”
Athena slowly grabbed her phone, as I watched her dial his number, her face saddened. “Phone is off. It ran once and went to voicemail.” She chucked her phone on the floor. I picked it up and placed it on the table. I touched my sister’s hand and felt everything she was feeling.
She was scared to know if her visions were true or not. She was afraid that something bad happened to him and she wasn’t able to say goodbye, or do the other thing, which I wished I didn’t know. I pulled out my phone and dialed Ricky’s mother number.
It rang more than twice, as I waiting for her to pick up. Until I heard her voice. “Logan, I’ve been meaning to call you all.” I heard her fragile voice spoke. “It happened so quickly, I just don’t know what to say.”
I could hear her sniffing. My stomach started to get tense. I felt like I was going to start crying, but I held back the tears. “What happened? Is everyone alright?”
Athena looked up and stared at me, I know she was trying to figure out what was going on, but I kept a blank face. I didn’t want her to see me get upset or see me cry. I’ve always kept a strong wall up when it came to emotions. I don’t like to show my weaknesses. Even if someone died, I try to stay strong for Athena.
“Oh, Logan,” She paused, as I could hear her blowing her nose. “Ricky’s dead.” After hearing those words, I didn’t know what to think. I looked into Athena’s eyes and I think she heard too.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
I knew when I looked into my brother’s eyes, something was wrong. Something I feared would happen. My one true love, my first love, was now gone. My heart felt like it fell in my stomach. I didn’t know what to do. He was a part of me, gone before I had a chance to tell him goodbye.
I got up from the table and went into the small RV bathroom. I closed the door shut and just started to cry. Why couldn’t this pain go away? Why did he have to go? Why is my heart hurting this much? I kept running questions after questions in my head to explain to me why he wasn’t alive. Tears kept falling down my face, as I looked up into the mirror.
My eyes were red, but the tears kept coming. Someone knocked onto the door. I ignored it. I didn’t want to talk to anyone. No one can help me.
“Hunny, please come out. I know it hurts, but you need to talk about this?” I heard my mother spoke. I don’t know what happened to me, but I snapped. I opened the bathroom door and stared at her. I could sense she wanted to say those words I wished never existed.
I told you so.
“Are you alright?” She asked, but I still gaze at her, with hate.
“Am I alright? What do you think I am? Happy?” I snapped at her, I could feel my pulse heating up. Every inch of my body was so angry. “Ricky is dead and you want to know how I am alright? How could you ask such a thing after my best friend and first love is dead!”
My mother looked shocked and tried to hold onto my father’s shoulder. “Athena, please calm down. I know how you feel.”
“Don’t even say that! No, you don’t know how I feel because you didn’t lose your first love, you got him back! Mine’s gone forever!” More tears started to fall down my cheeks. I looked at my mother. “He’s gone and you kept him away from me. I hate you!” I yelled and ran in the back room.
I saw my Aunt Marie come behind me and comfort me. Her cold skin relaxed me, as she hugged me tightly. “I’m so sorry, love.” She whispered in my ear. It felt weird that my Aunt Marie was more comforting than my mother has ever been.
She pushed back my hair and wiped the tears from my eyes. She placed a cold kiss on my forehead. “It’s gonna hurt, right now. Losing someone is never easy, believe me, I do know. I lost my first love a few years back. To this day, I’ve never found anyone else to replace him.” She spoke as I sat up on the bed and looked at her, wiping away the last of my tears.
“How did he die?” I asked I hoped it wasn’t too bold of a question, but she didn’t flinch at the question. She kept twisting the only ring from her finger. It was a Claddagh ring with a beautiful blue topaz stone in the shape of a heart.
“Well, a month before you guys were born, I was dying and in the hospital. My grandmother tried to cast a beautiful spell and ended up being a curse. I had until my 21st birthday to find true love and have a child, to keep me from dying. While I was in the hospital, your father and mother sat by me the entire time. An old friend of mine came to visit, which happened to be my first love, but I couldn’t be with him.” She paused.
“Why not?”
“Because he wasn’t human. He was one of the older vampires that I had crossed my paths while looking for another way to cure my curse. We both fell in love but kept it a secret. Relationships between witches and vampires were allowed. It was very dangerous and deathly.”
“I can see why, but how did he know where you were?” I asked it was a little weird to me that he knew where she was.
She pulled off her ring and held it up for me to see. “With this.” She put it back on her finger. “He gave this to me, once the elders found out we were together and had us end it. We were bonded together, since I let him feed on me, at one point.” She smirked. “So, I had a bond spell put on the ring and his watch, to let him know where I was and what my health was at. There was another gem in the watch, the same as in my ring, that would change colors, so he saw the gem start to go black, which meant I was dying.”
“Once he saw me, he didn’t want to go, so I fed on him and he took me out of the country, that night and brought me to his home, where I completed the transformation to become a vampire. I still kept in touch with my brother, the first few years were the hardest and your mother didn’t want me around if I still fed on humans. It took me years to finally come up with another way to feed, but without even feeding on humans.”
“During that progress, I found your mother’s best friend, James. He had overdosed on drugs a few times before I changed him. I wasn’t going to let your mother’s best friend die because he didn’t get to be with your mother. My Eli ended up getting himself burned to death because of James. James was fighting after he was turned that he ripped off Eli’s daylight ring. He burned to death and I never forgave myself for that. He died because I was stupid and tried to save a druggie who wanted to die.”
I couldn’t believe it. She lost her love too. I touched her hand. It broke my heart to know that my Aunt Marie went through all that to save someone who wanted to be saved but ended up losing her one true love.
“I’m so sorry, Aunt Marie,” I said as I pulled her in for a hug. She hugged me back but pulled away. She stared into my eyes.
“The point of me telling you this is that revenge won’t get you anywhere. Hence why James is still alive. If I were to kill him, your mother would want to kill me. Be the stronger person and try not to lash out to your mother because you might end up hurting her.” She turned my hands upside down and showed that they had a little black in the middle of my palm. “See, you getting angry is like if someone were to turn a toddler or baby into a vampire. A fit would cause half of the planet to die off. You are a lot stronger, you need to train your powers so that you don’t hurt anyone by mistake.”
I nodded as she got up and left the room. I looked down at my hands and wiped them away from the ash that stained them. Aunt Marie was right, I needed to be careful, otherwise I might hurt someone important.
________________________________________________________________________________________________
“Alright, switching up the drivers.” James said as my father pulled over and they switched seats. We were all sitting at the table, with the exception of my mother, who has been on the phone with Ricky’s mother for the past hour.
“James, do you mind if we can pull into a fast food place in the next stop, we don’t have much food left in the fridge.” My father asked as James nodded. My father walked over to us. “What’s she learning now?”
I looked over at the book and the language. I couldn’t understand what it was saying, but my mind switches the words around. “I call out to my gods and goddesses, let me have the powers to bless this daylight ring.
“She’s learning the basic daylight spell. James’ doesn’t have a daylight ring, so I figured if she could turn his ring into a daylight ring, she will be able to do any basic spell.” Aunt Marie spoke as she handed me his ring.
“This better work, I don’t want to be the kid’s experiment.” James holler as we all chuckled.
“Now, focus and repeat after me: ‘Clamavero ad di deaeque benedicere vires adimant anulum habeam.'”
Clamavero ad di deaeque benedicere vires adimant anulum habeam.” I spoke and focused on the ring. I felt some type of weird feeling in my body that moved the ring up in the air, without anyone touching it. I then touched the ring, as it fell into my palm.
“Wow,” Logan said as Aunt Marie smiled.
“Did it work?” I asked, as Aunt Marie looked over at the ring and gazed up at James.
“Well, there is only one way to find.” She spoke.

Unforgotten – Chapter 8

If you haven’t read Chapter 7, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/02/25/unforgotten-chapter-7/

Athena’s P.O.V.
I entered the RV, not realizing that someone was with me. I turned and Ricky scared me. I jumped, as he shut the RV door.
“You scared me. I was going to be right back in-” He pressed his lips to mine and wrapped his arms around my waist. It caught me off guard, but I liked it.
My fingers when through his hair, as he held my waist, one of his hands drifted to my butt, where he squeezed it tight. He broke the kiss and started to place kisses down my chin and neck. I craved more of his touch when he placed one last passionate kiss on my lips.
Our faces were touching as we both were trying to catch out a breath. “I’ve been wanting to do that all day.” Ricky spoke as I smirked. He placed another kiss on my lips before I went over and grabbed my crocheting bag.
“How have you been feeling?” I asked. He turned to face away from me, but I understand if he didn’t want to answer. I was worried about him. I loved him with all my heart, even though he is my first love. He was still everything to me.
“I’m feeling great.” He responded. I wanted to ask more, but I figured he would get annoyed with me asking, so I dropped it.
We both left the RV and walked back inside. I looked around and saw that no one was in the living room or the dining room. I left my bag on the table as I looked up and saw them outside.
“You are not going to fucking turn him! I won’t let you!” I heard James’ voice yelling at someone. I walked further into the kitchen and saw the back down opened. “You created me to be this fucking monster, I’m not going to let you turn him into one as well!”
I stood in the doorway and saw my brother, father, and Aunt Marie, sitting at one end of the porch, with James and my mother, standing in front of them.
“James, I will explain! You need to lower your voice.” Aunt Marie said as she saw me standing in the doorway. “I need to talk to Athena.”
“No, you won’t! You want to turn her best friend into a monster! I don’t want her to become like you, something so evil!” My mother said as I could see the anger in my Aunt’s eyes.
“Your daughter and son have something that can help save people like us. People who don’t want to kill themselves because they can’t leave their house during the day. Whether you like it or not, it can help save Ricky as well.” She spoke and then walked over to me. “Tomorrow morning, we will talk more, but only if you and your brother want to.”
As our Aunt Marie headed upstairs, I looked up at my brother and father. My brother nodded, telling me that he had his approval and my father smiled at me. I felt Ricky grabbed my hand and whispered, “You don’t have to do this, Athena.”
I looked up at him and smiled. “I’m not just going to do this for you, but to save my Aunt Marie and others who want to be free from their immortal curse.”
I saw relief in his eyes, but all I could think of is if this would really work?
___________________________________________________________________________________________
The next morning, we were all sitting down for breakfast. My Aunt Marie deicide to make us all something to eat. We all ate in complete silence, until Ricky’s mother spoke.
“So, Ricky.” She paused and took a sip of her coffee. “I got in contact with your father and he wants to meet you today. I figured we can both go meet him, while everyone is settling in.”
Ricky nodded. “Okay, but I wanted Athena to meet my father as well.” I was shocked, but then again, I was glad that he offered. Although, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go meet him now, plus what I have read in my mom’s journals, I don’t think that I will do that.
“No, I think I should stay here. I can always meet him another time.” I said as he looked disappointed, but I hoped he would think of it as I am trying to save his life.
My mother suddenly got up and walked away from the table. My father followed her, I was about to, but I could already hear her, then again, everyone could.
“Why are you so supported of this, Tanner?!” We heard my mother shout. “Why would you want to turn our daughter into something like that!”
“Jade, if she is going to save my sister, your best friend, and possibly Ricky, wouldn’t you want her to at least try?” He spoke, there was a long pause. The entire house went silent. “Wouldn’t it be great that you got your best friend back?”
“Yes, but this isn’t the way to do it. James said it can be very dangerous if-” My mother spoke, but was interrupted.
“Have you asked him if he still wants to be a blood-sucking demon for the rest of the world?” Once my father spoke those words, she walked back into the kitchen and looked at James.
“I know you heard, do you?” She snapped.
“No.” He softly said. She then looked over at our Aunt Marie.
“You can teach them, but I swear to god, you hurt my babies or they get into harm’s way, I will kill you.” James chuckled as her serious face turned to face him too. “Both of you.” She walked and left the cottage. My father followed her again.
“Well, that was fun.” James spoke and smirked at me. “Boy, didn’t miss her attitude.”
“Be nice, James.” Aunt Marie said as she looked at me and Logan. “Finish up breakfast and we will start your lessons.” She started to walk upstairs. We all got up from the table and James started to take care of the plates.
“Ricky, let’s go. It’s gonna be an hour drive from here and the cab will be here shortly.” Ricky’s mother spoke as she smiled and left as well. Ricky and I headed outside and stood on the porch, he hugged me tightly.
He looked back at me. “Are you sure you don’t want to go with us?” He asked once more.
“I’m sure, but I know you will tell me all about it when you get back, right?”
“Right.” He kissed my forehead, making me smile. “I love you.” He whispered.
“I love you, too.” I whispered back as the cab pulled in. His mother and Ricky got into the cab, I waved them goodbye. Once they were out of sight, I walked back into the cottage and almost walked into James. “Oh, I’m sorry.”
He smirked. Pulling a piece of my hair behind my ear. “Boy, do you remind me of your mother when we were young.”
I pushed his hand away and headed towards the stairs, but he grabbed me and threw me against the wall. Placing both of his arms on the other side of my head. My heart started to beat faster. I felt the hairs on my arms stand up.
“You know, your mother was this fiery when she was your age. Makes me want to have you even more.” He whispered in my ear. I pushed him away and ran upstairs. My Aunt Marie was waiting for me in the hallway, as soon as I entered in she locked the door behind her. Logan was sitting on the couch, drinking something.
Aunt Marie looked me in my eyes and saw the fear that was in them. “I’ll take care of James, don’t worry.” She whispered to me as I nodded and then sat down next to my brother.
She handed each of us a teacup, with some tea in it. “Now, each of you needs to drink this as I explain.” I smelt different herbs, but the one that stuck out to me was rose petals. As I took a sip, it started to calm me down, from what had just happened.
“This tea can determine how much power or skills you have. Witches can feel different elements, you just have to have your mind opened to them. Drinking this will also relax your mind, so as you are drinking it, relax your mind completely.” Aunt Marie said as I took a few more sips. “One thing we have to find out is which element represent your soul.”
As we finished our teas, we noticed that there were some herbs sticking to the bottom of the cup. Mine looked like it had formed a symbol. It looked very familiar. Looking back in my mind, it looked like a spiral, something that I would always use for my creative blankets I would crochet.
“Why are my herbs like this?” I asked as I gave my teacup to Aunt Marie. She looked surprised as she saw inside of the teacup. She got up and looked over at the bookcase to grab a dark green book, that had a spiral on the spine of the book and book cover.
“It can’t be.”
“What can’t be?” Logan asked as I looked over at him. What there something wrong with me?
“Athena has one of the rarest gifts that you can ever get as a witch. My grandmother had it as well.” Aunt Marie paused as she sat back down across from us and handed me the book. I looked down and looked at the witchcraft symbol, showing all the elements.
“Witches who have the symbol of spiral, are very rare. They can form their own elemental circles without others. They can feel all elements, as they can put their mind to it. However, witches, as rare as these, are very powerful. They can be a threat to other witches, making them want to strip them from their power or kill them from creating any more of their kind.”
“So, what you are saying is that I’m a rare witch?” I asked as I saw my aunt looking into my brother’s teacup.
“Both of you are.” She showed the inside of the teacup and smiled. My brother and I were shocked, we both smiled, not sure what we understood about it. I handed the book to my brother as we read.
“Will we both be able to make the cure?” I asked, but Aunt Marie had moved from her chair to the window. The sun was shining in, but she wasn’t burning up. I could see that she looked very worried. “Aunt Marie?” Logan and I walked over to her. She watched as our parents were fighting in the RV.
“We need to get everyone in the house, now.” She started to walk over to the door, but I grabbed her hand.
“But, why? Aren’t we safe?”
“You are now, but because of how rare your powers are, I need to keep my promise to your mother and keep you both safe.” I still didn’t let go. “Don’t worry, Ricky and his mother will be safe, as will your parents, I need to tell your father.” I let go of her arm.
“What can we do?” Logan asked.
“Look at that book I handed you and find a protection spell. Write down what you will need, I’ll go out and have someone get it.” Aunt Marie left and closed the door shut. I went to sit back down and look at the book, but Logan shut it.
“What happened before you came up here? I know something is wrong?” Logan asked. I didn’t want him to worry about James. I hate that he knows when something is wrong.
“Don’t worry about it, it was nothing. We need to focus on finding a protection spell.” I said as I looked up and saw him rolling his eyes. Hopefully, he can drop it so we can focus.

~Part 2 out of 3 Parts~

~The Greedy Hare and the Cloud Rabbit~

By: Kitty Sayjo

On the day of Maria’s birthday, Daniel rushes towards her room with a present in his hands. “Maria, I got you some-,” he starts to say before he trips at the entrance of her room.

“Daniel, are you okay?” Maria asked in a panic. As Daniel slowly gets up, Maria became horrified by what she sees.

“Your head is bleeding.” she says, pointing at the right of his forehead. Daniel feels a drop of blood stream down from his head.

“Oh, I must’ve hit my head on something. Don’t worry about it, I’m fine.” Daniel says as he tries to cover the cut with his hand.

“We should at least bandage it. Let me get something for it.” Maria says as she wheels herself towards her nightstand and opens the top drawer. She looks through it and pulls out a small box.

“What is that?” Daniel asked.

“It’s my first aid kit. I keep it nearby in case of emergencies.” Maria replies as she wheels toward him. Daniel kneels in front of her and removes his hand from the cut. Maria opens her kit and begins cleaning Daniel’s cut. As she takes care of his cut, Daniel starts to chuckle.

“What’s so funny?” Maria asked.

“I’m supposed to be your caretaker, but you’re the one that’s taking care of me,” Daniel replies. Maria giggles as she places a bandage over the cut. “Thanks.” Daniel says as he gets up.

“No problem. It’s the least I can do.” Maria replies as she notices the present on the floor. “What’s that?” she asked, pointing at the present. Daniel looks behind him and picks up the gift.

“It’s for you.” he replies as he hands the present to Maria.

“Oh, thank you,” Maria says as she takes the gift and begins opening it. Inside was a white, stuffed rabbit with black marble eyes. “It’s beautiful, Daniel,” Maria says as she holds the stuffed rabbit close to her.

“What are you going to call him?” Daniel asked. Maria looks out the window for a moment before deciding on a name.

“I’ll name him Cloud,” she says before looking up at him. “What do you think?” she asked.

“I think that’s a nice name for him,” Daniel replies. Maria looks over at her door for a moment before her smile turns into a frown. “What’s wrong?” Daniel asked.

“It’s Boris. He usually comes in to wish me a Happy Birthday, but it seems like he’s late this year.” Maria replies.

“Don’t worry. I’m sure he’ll come eventually.” Daniel says as he gives Maria a warm smile.

For the rest of the day, Maria celebrated her birthday with Daniel and the other servants in the manor. Unfortunately, nighttime came and Boris still didn’t come out.

Disappointed, Maria gets ready for bed. As Daniel was carrying her into bed, he notices her sad expression.

“Did you enjoy your birthday, Maria?” he asked as he puts Maria on the bed.

“Of course. I just wish Boris was with us.” Maria replies.

“I’m sure he would’ve. Maybe he was busy.” Daniel says as he pulls the covers over Maria.

“I guess you’re right. I just wish that I could help him more.” Maria replies. After saying goodnight to her, Daniel was about to leave but was stopped by Maria.

“Daniel, could you stay with me tonight. Just for a little while?” she asked.

“Sure.” he says as he sits on her bed.

“Thank you.” she says as she starts to fall asleep.

The next day, Maria and Daniel were playing cards in her room when they heard a knock at the door.

“Come in,” Maria says out loud. The door opens and Boris walks in the room.

“Morning, Maria,” he says as he approaches them. Maria looks up at him and gives him a warm smile.

“Morning, big brother,” she says happily. Boris looks over at Daniel, who was looking at the cards in his hand.

“Would you mind giving us some privacy?” he asked.

“No problem, Sir,” Daniel replies as he gets up and leaves the room. Boris looks back at Maria and kneels to her level.

“I’m really sorry that I couldn’t be with you yesterday. I was really busy.” he says.

“It’s okay. It was still a great birthday.” Maria replies. Boris notices the stuffed rabbit, Cloud, sitting on the table.

“Who’s this little guy?” he asked as he grabs the rabbit. “That’s Cloud. Daniel gave it to me for my birthday.” Maria explains.

“Cloud? What an odd name for a rabbit.” Boris says as he examines the stuffed rabbit. As he looks at it, Boris grabs one of the ears and gently, but firmly, pulls it. The thread starts to breaks and the ear nearly breaks off before Maria stops him.

“What are you doing?” she asked, grabbing Cloud from Boris’s hands.

“Sorry, Maria. I guess the thread wasn’t that strong,” Boris replies as he gets up. “I have to get back to work now. I’ll see you later.” he went on as he patted Maria’s head before leaving.

As he walks down the hallway, Boris sees Daniel waiting nearby. Daniel sees him and notices the upset look on his face

“Is everything alright?” he asked. Boris stopped dead in his tracks and looks up at Daniel.

“You’re just a caretaker. Nothing more.” he says before continuing down the hallway. Confused, Daniel walks back into Maria’s room and finds her sewing Cloud’s ear back on.

“What happened?” he asked.

“Just a little tear. Nothing serious,” Maria replies as she finishes sewing. “Now, where were we.” she went on as she grabs her cards from the table.

A few weeks later, Maria and Daniel were looking out the window, searching for animals in the clouds. They stared for a while until a thought came to Daniel’s mind.

“Why don’t we go outside and have a picnic today?” he says.

“That sounds nice,” Maria replies.

Around noon, Daniel prepares a basket and pushes Maria towards the garden. They strolled along the stone pathway until they came to the big oak tree.

“This looks like a good spot.” Daniel says as he grabs the blanket and places it on the shaded area. He then takes Maria out of her wheelchair and sits her on the blanket. They began enjoying their lunch and looking at the clouds.

Halfway through, Maria thanks Daniel for everything that he has done for her.

“No problem. I just enjoy being with you.” he replies.

Suddenly, Daniel goes up to Maria and kisses her on the cheek. Maria starts to blush as she looks at Daniel with a shocked expression.

“Sorry. I don’t know what got over me.” Daniel says as he starts to blush in embarrassment.

“It’s okay. I understand,” Maria replies as she kisses Daniel on the cheek. “There. Now we’re even.” she went on as she smiles at him. While they continue to look at the clouds, Boris was watching them from his window.

“That’s going too far, boy.” he mutters under his breathe.

That night, Daniel tucks Maria into bed. Before he leaves, Maria stops him.

“Do you think we can do it again sometime?” she asked.

“Of course.” Daniel replies.0

“Alright. Good night, Daniel.” Maria says as she drifts off to sleep. Daniel looks at her and smiles.

“Sweet dreams, Maria.” he whispers before leaving the room.

As he walks down the hallway, Daniel had a feeling that someone was following him. As soon as he was outside, a voice calls out for him. Daniel turns around to see Boris facing him.

“Oh, sir. I didn’t notice you,” he says. Looking closer, Daniel could see the pure hatred in his eyes. “Is everything alright?” he asked.

“No, it’s not.” Boris replies as he pulls out a dagger.

“W-what are you doing?” Daniel asked in a panic.

“Don’t act so innocent with me. I know what you’re doing.” Boris replies as he slowly walks towards him. Daniel starts to run as Boris got closer. He ran towards the woods as Boris begins to chase him.

Suddenly, Daniel tries and falls to the ground. Boris catches up to him and looks down at him.

“You really think that getting close to my sister will get your poor hands on my money.” he says as Daniel faces him in horror.

“You don’t understand. I don’t care about your money!” Daniel replies as he backs away from him.

“Don’t give me that crap. Why else would you be so interested in a girl who can’t walk?” Boris asked as he gets closer. Daniel continues to back away, but Boris grabs him and pins him against a tree. “Tell me. Why are you so close to my sister?” Boris yells out as he raises his dagger.

“BECAUSE I LOVE HER!” Daniel yells out. Boris slowly lowers his dagger after hearing what Daniel had just said.

“What?” he asked.

“It’s true. I fell in love with your sister. I don’t care the money, or the fact that she can’t walk. I only care about her and her happiness.” Daniel replies. Boris releases him and looks out into the woods.

“Does Maria have feelings for you as well?” he asked.

“I think so.” Daniel replies. Boris looks at him and gives him a warm smile.

“If she feels the same way. I’ll allow you to be together.” he says.

“Really?” Daniel asked. Boris gives him a firm nod before Daniel starts to hug him.

“Thank you, Sir. I promise that I’ll make Maria happy.” Daniel went on.

“I’m sure you will, and I hope she’ll forgive me for doing this.” Boris says.

“Doing what?” Daniel asked. Before he could get an answer, Boris stabs him in the chest. Daniel falls to the ground, coughing up blood. “W-why?” he asked.

“I care about Maria’s happiness as well. Being with a poor boy like you won’t make her happy.” Boris replies as he watches Daniel take his last breath. “I better get someone to clean this up.” he thought as he heads back to the manor.

The next day, Maria wakes up to find that Daniel wasn’t in yet. She waits patiently for him, but he still hasn’t arrived. After a while, Boris comes in and sits beside her.

“Where’s Daniel?” Maria asked. Boris looks up at at her before coming up with a lie.

“He resigned last night.” he replies. Maria’s eyes widen in shock.

“Did he say why?” she asked.

“No, he just left without saying a word,” Boris replies as he stands up. “I’ll have one of the servants help you from now on.” he went on.

“Okay.” Maria replies in a saddened tone. Boris notices the sadness in her eyes and tries to comfort her.

“I’m sure he had a good reason for leaving. Try not to think about him.” he says as he leaves the room.

As soon as Boris was gone, Maria starts to cry.

~Chapter 1~

Athena’s P.O.V
First day of school, I’ll be a Junior, this year. Same as my brother. I groaned when the sunlight hit my face. I looked over at my alarm clock and saw that it had just started to go off. I wasn’t ready for this first day, I missed my dad.
My dad left awhile ago, for a business trip I think, but he hasn’t answered my phone calls or have told mom when he was going to come home. Usually, when its the first day, my dad would walk into my room and wake me up, as he was excited to get us kids out to school.
He would then make an awesome breakfast and drive us to school, wishing us to have a great day, but this was the first time he has missed a day like this. I got up and opened my closet, picking out an outfit out of the new school clothes that my mom and I got a few weeks before.
I decided that one of my WWE Lita shirts would do with some shorts, since I had a feeling it was going to be hot out. My phone started buzzing, as I looked over, it was a text from Ricky, my best friend.
You need a ride? he texted.
I ignored it, he and I have known each other since we were babies, but since he has started going to college, we haven’t talked much since. I wondered why he would just message me out of the blue like this?
Someone knocked on my door as I tossed my phone on my bed and grabbed my backpack. “I’m coming!” I said, as I looked and saw my brother come in.
“Ricky’s giving us a ride. Why didn’t you message him back?” Logan asked as I zipped up my bag and threw it over my shoulders.
“I wanted to walk.” I lied. I really didn’t want to talk to Ricky. I looked over and saw my phone go off. I looked at my caller ID. It was my dad. I quickly grabbed the phone and answered.
“D-Daddy??” I asked, I had a tear escape from my eyes.
“Yes, how’s my baby girl?” He asked. My heart was overjoyed. Logan’s eyes got wide as I put the call on speaker.
“We miss you, daddy. Logan’s here too.” I spoke, wiping a tear or two away from my face.
“Hey dad.” Logan said.
“I miss you both so much. I wanted to call and wish you a great first day. I’m sorry if I can’t make it.” He explained. Logan looked at me, I bet he could see the smile on my face, just hearing my dad’s voice. “I’ll be home as soon as I can. Something happened with my trip and it might be awhile longer.”
“How long? You okay, daddy?” I panicky asked.
“I’m not sure, sweetie. I’ve been feeling under the weather and I can’t travel until I’m better. I’ve got to go, but I love you too so much.” My dad hung up the phone as I finished wiping my tears. Logan pulled me in to hug me.
A car horn honked from outside. Logan pulled away and left. “I’ll be right out, just have to grab my stuff.” Logan said. I walked out to the front of my house, where Ricky’s car was parked. I got in the back seat as Ricky turned his head and gave me a smile.
He looked different, he cut his long blond hair and doesn’t look like he has shaved his face in awhile. “How are you, Athena?” He asked, but I looked towards my house, hoping that my brother would come out sooner.
“Fine.” I said, just to shut him up. Finally my brother got out of the house. Logan opened the passage’s door and got in.
“Hey Ricky, thanks again for giving us a ride.” Logan said as I rolled my eyes. “My mom said that if you need gas money, we can give you some.”
“Naw, don’t worry about it.” Ricky said, driving away from our house. “Actually, wanted to know if you guys wanted to come over Saturday to a party?”
“Hell, yeah we would!” Logan excitedly said.
“I’ll pass.” I snapped, crossing my arms as I noticed Ricky had glance at me through the mirror.
“Come on, you don’t have to drink, it will be fun.” Logan tried to convince me.
“No, I-I have a date.” I lied. Why the hell did I just say that.
“You don’t date.” Ricky said as he turned into our high school. “You are coming, I’ll bring you home whenever you want to go.” He stopped the car.
“Thanks, but no thanks.” I got out of the car and quickly slammed the car door, walking as fast as I can into the school.
“Athena, wait up!” I heard Logan shout as I saw him pacing himself for running after me. “What was that all about?”
“I don’t want to talk about it.” I snapped and Logan dropped the subject. Logan and I walked to our homeroom, we had the same homeroom since coming to high school. We both sat in the back of the class as Ms. Eddy counted to see who was here.
I decided to putt out a mini project I was working on. I started to crochet a bookmark as Logan played on his phone. Ms. Eddy passed out our schedules and smiled when she saw me. “Working on a new project already, Athena?” She was the one to get me into crocheting, since it was a way to stay stress free.
“Yeah, I’ve been trying some different one’s in the book you gave me.” I returned the smile and pulled out the finished product of what I was working on.
“Beautiful, I love it.” She dropped the schedule on my desk. “Here you go, I’ll be seeing you at 8th period.” The bell rang and everyone in homeroom, grabbed their stuff and left. My brother took my schedule and peaked at it.
“We have English, Algebra 2, and History together.” He handed my schedule back. “Come on, sis.”
________________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V.
“Why can’t I go?” I argued with my mother. “Just because Athena doesn’t want to go, I can’t go? This is bullshit!”
“Logan! Watch your language!” my mother sighed. “I feel safer if you both went together. I know you think you can take care of yourself, but I don’t trust Ricky enough to keep an eye on you.”
I through my arms in my hair. It was totally crap that she didn’t want to let me go by myself. “Fine, what if I get Athena to go?” I asked.
“Then you can go, just make sure you are back before 11.” She then went back to looking at the computer. Her office phone rang. “Let me know what the plan is.” She answered the phone and I walked out of her office and headed down to Athena’s room.
I walked right in, Athena was on sitting on her bed crocheting, like she normally does. “Thanks for knocking.”
“I’m sorry, but can you please come to the party with me, tonight? Mom won’t let me go by myself.” I spoke, checking my phone as Ricky had just texted me that he was on his way. “Pretty please, Athena?”
“I already said no.” She snapped as she kept crocheting.
“I’ll tell mom about your habit.”
She looked at me in confusion. “What?”
“You heard me, I’ll tell mom you’ve been smoking pot.” Her eyes widen, she stopped what she was doing.
“How do you know about-” I stopped her from finishing her sentence. “I’m not the only one who uses the treehouse for that.” I replied with a grin on my face.
I remember the first time I caught her, she didn’t see me, but I’ve been low on pot and come to find out that she’s been up there smoking it. I never thought that my sister would do anything like that.
She rolled her eyes and placed her crochet stuff on her night stand. “Fine, but I’m not staying long.” I grabbed her sweater that was hanging and threw it to her.
“You might want to change, its’ getting chilly out.” I said before leaving her room. I popped my head back in. “Forgot to tell you that Ricky is bringing us. He’ll be here in 2 minutes.” Athena crossed her arms and gave me a dirty look.
I slowly walked into my mom’s office, she looked tired, but when she saw me she gave me a small smile. “So, is she going?” My mom asked.
“Yeah, she changed her mind. It’s still okay if we go, right?” I asked.
“As long as you are home before 11. Make sure that you both have your phones and you let me know when you arrive and when you are on your way.” She said, sitting back down in her chair before answering another call that was coming in.
I heard Ricky honk, and Athena was already waiting for me outside. She had a dress on, which was shocking because she normally doesn’t wear dresses or makeup, for that matter. I ignored and we started to walk over to Ricky’s car and he drove us off to the party.
___________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
My party was going pretty hard. I had a lot of girls come up to me, but the one I was interested in, was ignoring me. She looked hot, especially for a girl who never liked to dress up. I poured two shots and walked over with them to her.
She crossed her arms and looked away, when I sat down next to her. “Seriously, Athena, please just talk to me.”
“Why should I talk to you?” She snapped at me. I handed her a shot, but she still didn’t look at me.
“Tell me what I did wrong! Please, I’m begging you. I want to fix this.” She rolled her eyes and got up and walked away. I seriously couldn’t remember what I did. I got up and followed her outside.
“Athena, stop running from me!” I yelled, grabbing her wrist as she pulled away and looked into my eyes.
“I told you that I loved you and you said nothing! Just ignored me and said you were busy with college!” She screamed. She told me before I left for college and I didn’t know what to say to her. I loved her too, but her mother warned me to stay away. I didn’t have the heart to tell her.
“I’m sorry that I didn’t explain why I didn’t say anything. It’s more complicated than that.” I said pausing. “I’m never going to be good enough for you. I figured ignoring your feelings would make it easier for you to forget.”
Athena started to cry a little more. “Ricky, it’s not that simple.” She spoke softy, I tried to hug her, but she put her hand out in front of me. “Can we please find Logan so we can leave?”
I nodded as I went back inside to get Logan.
I felt so stupid. Why couldn’t I just tell her? I wanted to be the only one for her, but I don’t want to ruin our friendship, which was already on the rocks. Maybe I just needed to find someone for me, so that I can help her move on.
_________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V
Ricky came to get me and it was all silent in the car ride home. I figured I would leave it alone, unless something bad happened.
I thank Ricky for the ride home and Athena never turned back to look at Ricky. I didn’t understand why she was acting like this. Maybe it’s because dad has been gone for so long? I followed her into her room. “Is everything okay?” I asked as she turned and nodded. I didn’t believe it for a second.
“Seriously, what is wrong?” I snapped, crossing my arms. Athena sat down on her bed. Taking off her shoes and jacket.
“Don’t worry about it, its nothing.” She snapped. I rolled my eyes, this is what she would normally do.
“Put your shoes back on, let’s go to the treehouse.” I said as she looked surprised. She got her shoes back on and followed me to the backyard, where stood the tree that held the tree house we all build together.
For years, Athena and I would come up here to talk or to read, but it has been transformed into a mini smoke place for me and sometimes Athena. Our mom has no idea that’s what we do up here, but my dad knows and says as long as I don’t get caught, he’s okay with it.
I climbed up the treehouse first and then helped Athena get inside. She sat on the right side of the treehouse, that’s where she would normally sit. I grabbed a little bit of pot and started to grind it up for a joint.
“Seriously, what’s wrong? And don’t lie to me. I’ll find out one way or another.” I said, looking up at her for a second. A faint smile appeared on her face.
“You sounded like dad.” She said as I returned the smile. “I miss him, Logan.” I nodded in agreement. Don’t get me wrong, we love our parents, but we love it when all of us are here together. Mom has been busy stressed out on trying to pay the bills, that she hasn’t had the time to spend it with us.
It doesn’t bother me, but Athena doesn’t really have friends expect Ricky and I. Although, Ricky and Athena seemed to not be talking as much as they used to. I decided I was going to break the awkward silence. “Is there something going on between you and Ricky?” I asked, finishing up the small joint I rolled.
Athena sighed as I put the joint in my mouth and lit it. “I-I-I told him how I felt and he didn’t say anything about it.” She softly said, as I passed the joint to her. I knew she had feeling for him, but I figured she would be too shy to say anything to him. I did know that when our mom found out, she told Ricky to stay away, Athena doesn’t know, but my mom doesn’t want history to repeat itself.
“Look, I’m just gonna come out and tell you this because I love you and I am your twin.” I took a deep breathe. “Mom told him to stay away from you, before he left college. She didn’t want your heart to be broken.”
Angry flushed her face. He handed the joint back to me, she wanted to pace back and forth, but there was no room to do so. “I can’t believe she did that! I’m tired of her treating me like a little flower!” I started to laugh, when she said flower, but it’s the truth. “It’s not funny!”
“Okay, I’m sorry, but I didn’t think you were going to say flower.” Athena finally started to relax. “Listen, here’s what I think about all this. Yes, your in love with him, but you have never been in love with anyone else. I think you need to put your feelings on the back burner, which I know will be hard to do, but I think that you’ll find someone else and forget about him.”

Unforgotten (Sequel to Unclear) – Intro & Backstory

Hey dearies! So, here is the sequel you have all been waiting for! During last year, I started working on the sequel to Unclear! Although, this one might be a little better than Unclear, it is more ‘clear’.

It you haven’t read Unclear, I will leave the link to all the chapters, just in case you want to catch up and understand what’s going on. 

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2018/07/21/unclear-list-of-chapters/

Unclear is in many points of views, mainly Jade’s, who is the man character. She ends up getting pregnant and trying to find her true feelings of who she really loves and struggles with that and other issues that happened in her past.

Unforgotten is in 3 points of views, Athena, Logan, and Ricky. Athena and Logan are Jade and Tanner’s twins. Ricky is Savannah’s best friend’s son. Each chapter isn’t based off of one person’s point of view, it’s a mix of all three of them and possibly more, but this book is still in the works.

The first chapter will be release next Monday, but I wanted to go into details on what is going on. So, here it is, the intro to Unforgotten:

Jade’s POV

My Love,
It has been too long since you have left. The kids and I are worried sick. I lied to them and told them you were on a business trip, but I can’t keep lying to them. Please Tanner, come back to us. Your family needs you. I want to hear your voice.
The twins will be 16 in two weeks. Please, show up. We all miss you. They want their daddy back and I want my husband back. If not, this will be my last letter to you. I can’t believe you would do this to this family. After everything we have been through.
I have no one left but you and our kids. My mom has forgotten who I am. Have you too? Forgotten everything? Please, call me or the kids. Its been months, Athena thinks you are having an affair with someone. Logan thinks you left this family.
Please, Tanner. If not for me, for the kids.
I love you.
-Jade
I folded up the letter and placed it into the envelope. I grabbed my wine glass and took a sip. It had been almost six months since Tanner left to check on his sister. Last time I heard from him was four months ago, but he told me it wasn’t safe for me to call.
I don’t understand why. Why won’t he just come back?

I wiped the last of my tears. Thank god the kids were already in bed and haven’t seen my tears. I wrote the address on the envelope and left it on my desk. I’ll put it in the mailbox in the morning. I finished off the glass of wine and left it on my nightstand.

I crawled into bed, holding onto his pillow, hoping that one day, he would come back. Not just for me, but this family. I worried that he’ll never return, just like his parents did for him. I wish James was still here. I could really use my best friend, but he’s dead.
I checked my phone and saw it light up. I sat right up when I saw Tanner’s name popped up.

My heart beated faster as I answered it. “Tanner??” I quickly said, I started to cry again. It was silent. I could hear him breathing. “Baby, Tanner. Is that you?” I asked again for an answer, but nothing. “Please, say something!”
“Jade. I can’t come home, ever.” He said, my heart broke into pieces.
“What do you mean you can’t come home?? Tanner, please come home!” I cried more. I could hear Tanner crying in the background as well.
“I’m sorry, but I’m sick.” He said.
“H-How sick?” I asked.
“I’m Marie sick…” He said as I started to cry even more. I knew what Marie was. We haven’t heard from her in a while, so he went to go find her. He can’t be. Marie wouldn’t let him be like that? Would she?
“Don’t hang up, tell me what happened.” I snapped at him. He sighed and cried more.
“I have to go. Just tell the kids I died, but I promise you, I will find a cure for this.” He hung up and I cried into my pillow. Why did this have to happen to us? To this family?

Logan’s POV
I walked away from my mother’s room. I was shocked at what I had overheard. I knew something was going on with dad, but I didn’t know he was sick. I wished my mother didn’t put the call on speaker. Something was up with this family and mom is just going to keep secrets.
I slowly walked back to my room. I paused and stopped at the door next to my room, my sisters door. I thought about waking her and telling her, but I figured I would keep this just to myself. I closed my bedroom door, making sure that I didn’t make a sound.
I got into bed, just thinking about where my dad would be? I had to find him, not just for my mom, but for Athena, my sister. She was daddy’s little girl and it would hurt her more to find out that mom was lying to us, than he was dead.
I figured I would tell her after we both turned 16. One way or another, I will find out where our dad is. Whether it kills me or not, but I will find him.

Next chapter will be out next Monday! If you can’t wait til then, you can always find the book on Wattpad, just search ‘katieasehl’. Not only will you find this book, but other’s that I have also written.
