“Doesn’t she look just like Alec?” Magnus’ light vice said. “She’s got more of you, like your bright blue eyes.” Will spoke softly and totally calm like nothing had happened. “Are you trying to flirt with me, William Sampson? You know I’m not single.” Magnus said through a giggle. Jade had felt like she’d heard enough of this confusing story and opened her eyes. She gasped with surprise, she had opened her eyes to her own room, in her own house. “And sleeping beauty awakes.” Will said as Magnus hit him with his shoulder. “Sorry” Will’s voice was shaking, he was probably nervous. Jade didn’t say anything; she didn’t want to say anything. She just wanted to run and forget that any of this had ever happened, maybe she’d ask her friend, Avery’s, Dad (who was a hypnotize) to make her forget everything. She just wished that none of today had happened and she’d never met anybody in last couple of hours. That Will hadn’t made the wrong decision about her and he knew she was totally normal, but she wasn’t. Jade remembered when she’d made the apple levitate and come towards her. Jade suddenly remember she was in the real world and tried to say something that would start a conversation that wasn’t awkward and scary, but all that came out was “How are you my Dad?” Magnus looked shocked, like he expected her to know. “Didn’t you know?” He asked, almost spellbound. “I didn’t even know this place, this building, the downworlders and shadow hunters, whatever they are. And I wish I’d never found out!” Jade stood up and pushed her farther aside, and started to stomp out of the room. Jade was closing into the door when suddenly a glittery blue puff of smoke appeared forming a figure. Jade took a shaky step back and blinked a few times to make sure it was real. She gasped as two hands appeared out of the smoke and grabbed her. They pulled Jade close to the body and she looked up to see her farther, Magnus smiling down at her. The grabbing felt more like cuddling and Jade leaned into it for a minute or two. She almost liked it, but pulled away in shock.
Jade had finally been able to exit out of the room with only a brief argument from Magnus. “But this is you” He’d said “You’re part of this; you’ve always been part of this, ever since you were little. You know you can’t escape from this.” Jade had said “Who’s my mum?” Magnus had stood there star struck from what she had and that had offered her a way out of the conversation and the room. Jade didn’t think twice this time, about turning corners. She trusted her instinct, and eventually came to a set of 2 elderly wooden doors. She tried to push them open but they were too heavy, she tried a second time still no luck, a third, a forth and even a fifth. But there was no success. Jade started to hear familiar light found steps from behind her, Magnus. She turned with a flash and panicked again. Ah, ah, ah. What am I going to do? I really don’t want to listen to him going on about complete and utter rubbish again. Maybe what I did with that apple might help with the doors. Jade started to think to herself, Focus, Jade, Focus. Suddenly a blast of the blue fog shattered out of her hands. It danced its way towards the door; Jade heard a small click and the door swung open, letting the cold air fly in. Jade turned round, to see where Magnus had got to. Nothing, nothing at all. Maybe he’s scared of the cold air and snow, Jade thought to herself. She turned back round and ran. She ran round the corners, down the stairs, past the shops and down the lanes, until she reached BANFORD ROAD. Her house was number 1, so she didn’t have to walk much further. She started to walk up the steps, as she took in deep breathes. Jade lifted up her hand and started to knock. There was no reply; she decided to just go in after all it was her house. She turned the brass door knob, but the door was locked. She banged harder on the door. Maybe they didn’t hear you the first time, Jade thought to herself. After knocking hard for hours, her hand was turning numb, not just from knocking but from how cold it was. Jade had a brain storm and remembered how she’d opened the door in the building. She tried to do the same thing again, and succeeded. The door flew open and revealed a house lit up in flames, but only on the inside. Everything was everywhere; the house looked like it had been turned upside down. Jade gasped and took a couple of steps forward. The door slammed behind her, she turned as a muddy hand covered her mouth. A spooky voice said “Shhhhh, you’re gonna come with me and not going to argue, OK? We're going to have some fun” Jade was about to turn round and karate chop this guy’s head off, when a cold metal object was pushed on her back, on the skin. She gasped and slowly nodded her head.
