Chapter one.


    Calista P.O.V.

    Flying.. I was flying. Looking down my breath was taken away by the beautiful mountainside. Lush plants carefully placed by mother nature. The wind was blowing threw my long brown hair stirring a restlessness inside of me. I had to get there. I had to find..

    I abruptly woke up to a sharp pain on my shoulder. Bolting straight up I clutched my arm while squinting my eyes as I looked around my room. The sun illuminated my surroundings, the sea blue walls, the golden curtains, the familiarity of it all soothed me. Throwing the dull green comforter off my bed I stumbled to the bathroom. Turning around I examined my shoulder, huh it seemed to be fine. Shrugging I made my way downstairs taking them two at a time. Following the normal morning routine I grabbed an apple, got dressed and walked outside.  

    The forest smelled of spring, the sweet aroma of lilacs and roses clung to the air like a second skin creating a calming aura. Sitting on my normal rock I grabbed my sketch book, opening to a blank page I took out my pencil and drew whatever my hand decided to draw. After a few moments it took the shape of a cute little house on the top of an mountain. Looking up at the green mountains before me I had the sudden urge to climb to the top of it. Smiling to myself I put away my sketch book and began to climb to the top of it.   


    A few hours later I was still no where near the top when I spotted a stream, following the bubbling sound I stopped when I saw a pool of water big enough to swim in. stripping down to just my undergarments I jumped into the fringed water. Laying on my back I looked at the sky. Bugs danced around the water like fairies, the sun glowing against their wings giving them the appearance of orbs. A chill ran up my spine as the hair on my body stood on edge. Slowly turning around I was greeted by a man, and god was he gorgeous. Stark black hair surrounded his pale face as if it was an evil halo. His mystic blue eyes seemed to be staring into my soul slowly moving away from the figure that stood before me a smirk crossed his face as if scaring me as some sort of game.

    “Afraid of me huh?” A deep voice teased. Gulping I shook my head.

    “ No, you startled me.” I admitted half heartedly  as booming laugh ran out of his mouth.

    “ Your so amusing.” he stated then disappeared. Suddenly a hand went around my head and covered my mouth. He whispered in my ear making me shiver.  “I can smell fear you know, you're practically drowning in it.” Lifting me out of the water he shoved me towards my things. “Get dressed and come with me.” Taking a deep breath I walked towards my clothes then bolted past the rock. Twigs snapping against my bare feet ,my heart was pounding in my chest  as I heard a synclinal laugh echo  from behind me.

    “How sweet, she thinks she can run. Ill give you a few minute head start then I’m coming after you.” he yelled after me. Running as fast as my body would allow tears filled my eyes. Branches scratching up my body, I was running into trees and rocks bashing my head every time but  I didn't care,  I needed to run, and run fast. Knowing I didn’t have much time I tried to hide behind a giant bush hoping he wouldn’t find me. Beads of sweat mingled with the tears that ran down my dirt covered face. Shivering against the cool spring breeze I placed a hand over my mouth suppressing a sob as my other hand grabbed my stomach.

    “Told you I would find you.” I Jumped at his voice and screamed. Picking me up he cradled me to his chest.  

    “Shhh no need to scream I wont hurt you.” Looking into my eyes his voice had an hypnotic quality as he spoke. “Now sleep and when you wake up you will be living in a fairytale.” It was as if my mind was being controlled because in that moment I was terrified and yet my body forced myself  to sleep.
