Faces In The Flames

14 year old June Ford is always alone. Her Dad is always away at work trying to earn as much as he can to keep them both going, as June's Mum and little sister both went missing while she was still a kid. Every night Ju sits around a old small bonfire and lights it while waiting for Dad to come home, it's always late. One night June sees a face in the flames, the face explains she is the chosen one to save the Underworld. June tries to ignore it but she starts seeing faces in the fire she lights every night, of her lost Mum, her sister and lots of other faces she doesn't know. They are all crying which tortures Ju, but one night it's up to her to stop the crying.

4. I must be going crazy

I sigh. "Ok, how do I help you then?"

"Wait and you will know when you are needed. When your time has come I will call you through flames, but it has to be on this bonfire." Amy replies.

"Ok, thank you Amy."

Amy vanishes and the flames begin to die down.

Review of tonight. I have just been talking to fire, it's name was Amy and Amy told me I need to save the Underworld from the evil warlock Raven. I must be going crazy. Oh well, I gotta go to bed. As I pick up the rug and fully put out the remains of the flame, Dad's car pulls into the drive. I smile and race up to him just as he is getting out.

"DAD YOUR HOME YOU WILL NEVER BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED TONIGHT OMG YOU WILL NEVER BELIEVE IT BUT ITS TRUE COME..."

"I know what I will believe, that you haven't done your homework again!" Dad interrupts. (Dad home schools me, he pulled me out a few years back because he couldn't afford it what with Mum disappearing and stuff.)

I make my eyes all big and pout. "I love you daddy!" I say in an adorable tone. He smiles and leads me into the house.

"Goodnight pumpkin!"

"Goodnight Dad!"

I race into my bedroom and leap into my bed, I begin to dream about talking flames and dreams coming true...
