Erix looked at me as I called upon the Serenities.
"Elissa, it's almost time for the Dawn Break Ceremony. You have to go back soon or your mother will be furious."
"This'll teach her to never let me have the freedom I deserve."
Erix lowered his eyes, the disappointment etched all over his face.
I didn't know I would pay for my selfishness.
"Princess, wake up. Your healing powers are needed."
My eyes instantly snapped open and I became the leader in a matter of seconds.
"Who else fell ill overnight?"
The warrior looked at me with pain filled eyes. "Seven. Including the young prophet."
My breath caught in my throat.
"Felicia is ill? How far has the sickness gone?"
The warrior sighed. "Too early to tell. I wouldn't have grieved you with this information, but I thought you should know."
I nodded. "I should always be informed of the ill. Just know that when it comes to family you should never hesitate to tell me."
I called upon the Ancient power of Serenital and asked that I be blessed with their healing today. The power responded to me instantly and I felt the rush of energy flow through me.
"Thanos I must see to my sister first. If we lose her we will be blind to the goings on above."
The warrior nodded and I hastily made my way to my families chambers.
I pushed the curtain aside and basically flew across the room to where my sister lay.
I knelt down and held her hand which was clammy and limp.
"Felicia, how do you feel?"
The little prophet coughed and opened her eyes.
"Elissa you came to me first. What about the other injured? I can see, they are in far worse shape than I."
I sighed. My sister was so young and she already had such a burden. From the moment she was born she had been gifted with the sight, which although made her blind to everyday life allowed her to see the future.
"Of course I came to you sister. We need you to survive. You are our eyes and ears in this dark age."
Felicia shook. "I will not make it Elissa."
I shook my head. "Don't say that. We are the last of our family and we can't give up now."
Felicia smiled. "I have seen it Elissa. I will not see to the end of this week. You are to be the last of the Seren bloodline."
"I'm going to start your healing so don't worry if you feel anything weird."
"Don't!" Felicia's voice quivered in fear. "My body will reject the healing and it will only hasten my death."
I didn't question her.
"What am I supposed to do then?"
Felicia's body became rigid and she tightened her grip on my hand. I realised a vision was about to be told.
"The end of the Dark Age will soon come. The remaining of the bloodline will finally step up and fulfill her duties and make up for what she did that day. She will return to the upper land and bring peace back to the world of Serenital."
Felicia relaxed and her wide unseeing eyes sought my face.
"What did I say?"
I smiled weakly. "You said there's a small chance you'll make it through the week, but for now I must aid the other ill."
"Good luck Elissa. I believe in you."
I got up and walked out the room, not thinking for a second the little prophet had believed what I had said.
