Ignis and Glaciem

I am different to the other kids, in more ways than one. I mean, no-one really fits in in high school but I just feel different, though that could be down to the fact that I’m a Wise One. My name is Doe. I’m not entirely sure why my parents named me so but I think they said it was something to do with how innocent I look when I sleep and how fragile I can be...


5. Hallucinations

“Doe, let me in.” Faren was knocking on the door. I opened my eyes to see that my room was covered in snow. I could hear my brother pushing on the door but it was frozen shut. “Hang on”, I called. I stood up and gently placed my bare feet into the snow. The cold rose up my body and I felt refreshed. I stepped lightly through the snow towards the door then traced the door with my hand and it opened. Faren took a step back when he saw the cold. He didn’t want to touch it. “Mum and dad found something, they told me to bring you downstairs. You okay?”. I rubbed my eyes and shut my bedroom door.
“Yeah. Much better now”. I followed him downstairs and into the living room then sat down on one of the wooden chairs near the coffee table. My mum and dad were sat on the sofa opposite me.
“Doe, I think we’ve found out why everything’s happening and why it only affects you and Ivory”, my father said in a hushed tone.
“Iridian Gelidus, the only Glaciem representative in the Wise One council died last night at two AM”, answered my mother. “So the Wise One world is unbalanced and, well it’s very dangerous and it’s never happened before. They haven’t found a Glaciem to take her place and it takes at least a year for them to be initiated.”
“So, what’s going to happen to the Glaciem” I asked. I could hear my heart beating and for the first time, sweat appeared on my palm.
“Nobody knows but it will affect everyone. If the world becomes unbalanced, it won’t just affect the Wise Ones”. My head felt dizzy again but my vision didn’t go black this time, it showed something else.
The Igni had turned against the Glaciem and were hunting them down. It was very dark so I couldn’t tell if I was outside at night or just in the middle of a very large room. There was no moon so assumed I was inside but I’d have thought someone would have put lights or windows in such a room. It was very warm in here too and there was no furniture.

A small light source appeared not too far away from me but it cast shadows. I found that I was lying down, so I got up and sat in the newly cast darkness. I didn’t know what was going on and I tried to figure it out when I saw a face I recognised. Ivory. He was being held down by two Igni, a third held a ball of fire in his hand, a tiny sun. He walked closer and closer to Ivory. I wanted to help but I couldn’t move, I was paralysed, unable to help my brother. Everything went bright and when my vision returned, all I could see was flames. I screamed as loud as I could.
I was curled up, shaking, on our living room floor. Hot tears streamed down my face. This whole thing had to be a nightmare.
“Doe?” Ivory was knelt beside me. I shook my head. I wasn’t Doe. This wasn’t real.
I opened my eyes and looked at him. He was fine, it was just a hallucination. He wiped the tears away from my eyes and helped me up. Everyone was staring. My sisters had all come downstairs to see what had happened. They must have heard me scream. My whole family stood in one room. You could feel the power but it felt unstable. The room was getting too warm and I couldn’t stand everyone looking at me so I darted out and back to my room.
The snow still covered my bedroom floor but there was more now. I shut the door behind me and lay in the snow. It melted around me. I hugged my knees to my chest and began to cry. What was I if I was no longer cold? What if this wasn’t sorted? What if my hallucination was really a premonition? Would I ever be able to see Fabien again? What if my powers hurt him…kill him?
“Fabien” I tried to cry out but I hardly made a sound. I had to tell him what was going on and I had to find out what was going on with him too.
