The Immortal

Would you fight the evil that surrounded you? Would you risk your life to save another's? Would you try to save the whole human race? Well, would you?

If anyone had told Avia Green she was the only person in the world that couldn't turn immortal she would of laughed. Immortality? Demons? Evil? Please. But what if one man is trying to destroy the human race with what Avia created inside her head. What if Avia is the only one that can destroy him? What if the whole world is relying on Avia to free them of their evil spirits? Yeah what if.

"Why do you look like you got hit by a bus and run over three times?"

I rolled my eyes as I sat at the kitchen table with my younger sister, the morning light leaking through the blinds. The air was coated with the smells of frying eggs, fresh bread and orange juice that I was holding just under my nose. I looked over the carton and towards my sister Ebony, who was smirking in my direction, a sparkle of trouble in her eye. Ebony had always wanted to be perfect and for some reason she never had any trouble in failing.

"Ebony May, stop insulting your sister," my mother sighed, multi tasking as she fed my other sister in one hand and washed the dishes in the other.

"But mum it looks like a blind man dressed her and then spat in her face!" Ebony giggled, scraping her fork on her plate and making me cringe.

To some girls like Ebony, insults like these would make their mascara pour down their faces but to me the insult didn't hurt a bit because one, it's Ebony, my 15 year-old sister that thinks she's a model and buys $500 flat irons and two, I did look like an ogre that got hit by a bus and ran over three times.

This morning it took me about 20 minutes to force myself out of bed. Usually this isn't the case and I get out of the warm covers in record speed but this morning it felt different. The sun wasn't shining into my room like normal, my room was shadowed like a dark abyss and the silence clung heavily to the room. Normally I would get up to the sound of loud birds, footsteps, the rustle of curtains and the pop and sizzles of toasters and frying pans. Even the neighbours ute's engine didn't creak and whine like usual. It was all too weird to contemplate about so I ended up getting up and walking into the kitchen like a zombie.

"That's enough Ebony!"

I couldn't help grinning as Ebony rolled her eyes and let out a big huff of defeat while cleaning her plate. As she stood up I got a glimpse of today's outfit, a tight dress that hugged every part of her petite and slender body. It was the colour of a midnight sky and she made it more casual with a denim cropped jacket and some dirt coloured doc martens.

"This is what fifteen year-olds wear to school these days?"

Ebony snarled at me as she placed her dishes in the dishwasher and tried to pull her dress down before our mother saw, "Yes, they do Avia but you would never know because you're to  busy hanging out with boys."

"What about Thea?" I hissed back with a smile. I walked over to the window and started cleaning up the mess Lilly was making from her highchair. "Last time I checked she was enrolling into this beauty school or something."

"Yeah but you hang out with Jamie more than Thea. If I was her I would ditch you and start talking to more important people like Cara," Ebony argued, wiping the stove as Mum hummed in the background, pretending to not listen to our conversation.

Snorting, I grabbed Lilly and washed her face, "Yeah because she-eee's such a role model" I spat. Cara Sandilands was the prettiest and snottiest girl of Colton High. She had the common popular girl's slender legs and tight waist but had the personality of a troll. For some reason this 'role model' was on Ebony's "Future Best Friends' list.

"She rescued a kitten from a tree."

"No she didn't, her boyfriend Steve Phillips did and HE let her take all the credit!" I barked. This was getting on my nerves and I needed to evacuate the scene ASAP. "You know what Eb, wear all of the 'nineteen year old' clothes you want because I don't give a crap."

"Avia."

I ran out of the kitchen and down the hall with anger flaring in my chest. Sometimes I just wished Ebony would just listen to me and not the latest gossip in 'Teen Vogue'  or whatever magazine she reads. Why do looks always come before personality? That was just one of the things I would never understand.

I stopped at the staircase to watch a morning storm brew outside, little rain drops racing down the glass window beside the front door. The sun still brightly shone down, orange and yellow clouds turning grey and dusty as they grew in the sky, flashes of lighting and thunder appearing at a rapid pace. It was like an usual summer storm until one cloud caught my eye. In the middle of the grey and black puffs of storm I saw one white plump cloud with a bright blue aura around it. Blinked once, nope I'm not hallucinating. Blinked twice, yes it's really there. But how? It was one of the most peculiar things I'd ever seen. I smiled, maybe this was a sign of luck or something. I had read about things like this before. And even though I wanted to believe it, something deep down inside my chest was telling me otherwise.

***

Rain fell from the sky as I ran down the street and into the storm. Drops of water flooded the pavement as my boots skated through the water. Mum had pleaded with me to drive to school but for some reason I had a feeling we would've died on the way there. Yes, I was getting a severe case of paranoia but I've read about death signs like this before and I wasn't taking any chances.

"Avia wait up!" a familiar voice cried. I pulled up my coat hoodie as water ran down over my head and watched as my best friend Jamie appeared from out of his driveway three doors down from my place. He had his jacket pulled up over his head and we both started sprinting down the street.

"How are you doing?" Jamie panted as he bolted next to me.

I laughed at the fact that he was trying to start a conversation and wiped a wet strand of hair from my face, "I'm good, how about you?"

"Great!" he chuckled. Jamie was one of my best friends besides my other friend Thea. He could easily fit into the popular crowd but instead of hanging out with future super models and his bad boy friends he choose to hang out with me, boring old Avia Green. I still ask him about it but he just shakes it off, "This rain is making me blind."

I laugh as we tear onto the street of Colton High. The tall building stood high in the street, rain drops falling from the roof as students ran from the bus and into shelter. I even glimpsed at Cara Sandilands running in 6 inch heels, her makeup close to running.

As we reached the building, I looked up at the sky when we got undercover. The white cloud was still glowing in the sky above, making me feel squeamish. It seemed to be larger then I last remembered it.

"Do you see that?" I asked Jamie as he tried to dry his dark brown hair. He looked up at the sky and frowned.

"See what?"

"The white cloud! Isn't it weird how it's the only white cloud in the sky?" I cried, how could he not see it? The sky was now fully blanketed with grey and black, rain pouring down hard onto the cement. I saw the white cloud disappear behind the roof before looking back at Jamie.

I saw him looking around and it was clear he saw nothing, "Nope."

It was then when I walked backwards and into a stiff chest.

"Oh, I'm so sorry!" I apologised as I turned around to slam back into the body. I gripped his shirt to stop myself from stumbling and looked up to see a tall boy with pale smoky blue eyes and dark locks of hair. Two girls appeared beside him, one a tall blond with dark hazel eyes framed with long lashes and another: a short brunette with a small nose and full pink lips.

"Avia Green," the boy spoke, his voice raspy and strangely fascinating, "You need to come with me."
