I've always been fascinated by the paranormal. My adopted parents aren't too keen on anything of that nature though. They're really religious, and they don't believe in anything I tell them. In fact, I'm not really important to them, but they keep me anyway. But I swear, everything changed when the new kid came to my school.

That's when everything changed.

5. Gerard - Welcome To The Family

The first thing that Laura did was panic. The second was an new and primal response for her, she made herself something to defend herself with. There was no thought she put in, the weapon simply appeared in her hand. On the other hand, she had also developed a set of rather strange astral features.

Her wing were that of a black dragon at the top and tips, while they blended into that of a firebird, or pheonix. Her hair was joined with locks of firey feathers, and she looked defensive enough to use that whip in her hands. "Stay away from me..." she threathened, and Shade simply grinned with her wolfy smile.

"Calm down, I'm not gonna hurt you, isn't that right Gee?" Shade called in a sing song voice, and I nodded. "Yep, this is Shade Hallows. Shade, this is Laura-" I began to introduce before Shade butted in again "Helsing! This is the girl! She's got the dragon wings!"

"Shade, do not be your usual self." I warned, and the girl sulked and ran away, chanting to herself loudly "Micheal's in the car!"

I shook my head and smiled. "You okay? She can be... Overwhelming at first." Laura fidgeted and nodded slowly. "I think so. She's pretty scary." I laughed, all too familar with that concept of thinking. She could be pretty damn terrifying at times. "She's a good person. Little crazy, but a good person. Mikey is in the car. Come on." The girl nodded, the wings finally disappearing now she was at easy. She probably didn't even realise they were there. Just something her subconscious did.

So, I gestured with my head to the carpark, and she nodded and began to walk with me. "You know you had wings then? Astral features?" I asked, and stopped and looked at me suspiciously. "No I didn't." I shook my head and chuckled "Laura, yes you did."

"But... What if I don't want this? I don't want to fight demons..." she says quietly, eyes cast down to the gravel beneath us. I breathed slowly and nodded "If that little outburst of magic hadn't of happened, you would have never been discovered. The crest, I would never have seen it. I would have watched you die." I said slowly, emphasing each word and watching news sink in.

And her eyes went dull and sharp. "You don't actually value me for anything but my magic?" she hissed, and I shook my head in realisation of what she'd interpretued. "No, Laura-" I began but she shouted louder, her eyes pratically burning and searing with anger "You just want to use me! You don't want to help me!" I backed off, looking around for somewhere to go, to hide.

But she was past the point where I could. Her wings reappared, and the same scythe appeared in her hands. "You don't value my life at all! You just want me as a weapon!" she roared, and fire crackled at the base of her wings. Soon enough, my own astral features had reappered, and my voice grated against the air "You idiot! Of course I give a fuck about you, because if I didn't, I would have let Lupin have you!"

"Lies! I fucking hate you!" she screamed, and swung the blade at me. I wasn't expecting it to be honest, and I stepped back and blocked upwards with my sword, and she tried to hook it away. Instinctive fighting was strong...

My fingers kept a tight grip on my weapon, and I ducked and twisted the scythe away, throwing the weapon her hands. She hissed, and tried to run towards the scythe, but I tripped her and put the fiery blade to her neck. "Don't do that again." I growled, and she hissed, baring her teeth.

"Say that again fucker."

"Don't do that again." I growled even more viciously, and now it was her will against mine. She realised she couldn't move, and could barely breathe, so she silently burned in anger. "You are probably the most important in all our lives right now, so everyone gives a fuck about you." I said sternly, before leaning downwards and whispering into her ear "So never ever think I don't care about you. Never."

Laura's fire in her eyes seemed to die down, and she nodded slowly, her wings and weapon disappearing. I smiled and offered her a hand up as my astral features disappeared, and she took it and I pulled her to her feet. "And now you're offically part of the family."
