Calista P.O.V


    Sitting on a rock I quietly waited for Alex to return. He had to feed and not wanting me to partake in seeing that he left me alone for a few moments. The sky was clear leaving the stars in the sky as little lights. The woods were oddly quiet, I could not hear any animals, the wind wasn’t even stirring. My back itched and burned no doubt from the silver lines where my wings would soon come in. I kept thinking about that man's response when I caught my father on fire, seeing as there was no fire near him I assumed that fire was my power. I mean I was supposed to have a power, but something told me it was more than that, if it was just a power then he wouldn’t have been so freaked, or it could have been that I probably killed their king, my father. Shivering at the thought I hope that someone saved him, I -i don’t know if I could deal with it the fact that I had killed my father. Sighing I laid back on the rock thinking about how much my life has changed, I mean one moment I’m starting my first year of pre med and the next I’m kidnapped, and then I find out all these incredible things and then I’m engaged. Laughing silently to myself I wonder what my best friend Katharine would say about all this. Before she died we talked about everything, we knew everything about one another. A single tear fell down my face. God did I miss her.  

    “You alright?” Alex said from out of no where.

    “Yes I’m fine, just thinking about the past is all.” Nodding he placed a gentle hand on my back.

    “Come on lets go home.” Nodding he picked me up and ran back to the house. Resting my head against his chest he carried me to my room. Laying down in my bed he looked me in the eyes as if he was searching for how I was feeling. I had blocked him out of my mind so he could not read my thoughts as far as I know.

    “Does your back hurt?” he asked randomly.  

    “ A little why?”

    “The slashes are bigger.” Nodding I nuzzled my head into my pillow.

    “Why did that guy freak? When I started my father on fire.”  Sighing he took my hand holding it in his.

    “That’s because you shouldn’t be able to do that, Fae have nature based powers, only an elemental would be able to do that. There hasn’t been an elemental for the past thousand years, the last one was murdered, by your father.” Nodding taking in all this newfound information. I closed my eyes.  “Is being an elemental bad?” I wondered my voice groggy with sleep.  

    “No sweetie, it's not bad, it just means that your even more special than I thought.”

    “And how special is that?” I laughed teasingly. Pulling me close he kissed my head before resting his cheek against my forehead.  

    “More special than you could ever imagine.”

    “Will you show me one day? How special that is?”

    “I will spend my whole life showing you how special you are to me.”

    “Promise?” I asked. “That we will have forever?”

    “Forever is an awfully long time love, you sure you want me to promise to that?”

    “More than anything.” I admitted snuggling into his chest.  

    “Then I promise.”

    “Good, good.” I smiled and placed a kiss on his chest.  Feeling safe within his arms I drifted off to sleep just as he placed a kiss on my head.
