"Mer?" Winter Penhallow bumped her identical 15 year old twin on the shoulder, her wavy brown hair falling over her face, covering her dark brown eyes.
"Yes, Winnie?" Summer murmured, fully focused on trying to turn the sand castle into a glass castle.
They were on a private beach, on break from Camp Half-Blood, the Institute, and Hogwarts. They hardly ever got to rest.
"Have you learned how to control it yet?" Winnie cringed when she said 'it'.
"Not yet... it still keeps on sputtering when I need it and it gets out of control whenever I'm trying to relax. Have you?" Summer sighed.
"Nope. But I do make wonderful icy treats." Winter winked.
"Oh! Can you make us some right now? Can I have a slushie?" Summer asked excitedly.
"Go get me some juice." Winter smirked.
"Okay! I'll do it later. I'm too lazy." Mer said, stretching out the 'y'.
Winter sighed. "Our bloodline is so weird. Sometimes, I just wish we were normal and didn't have so many monsters trying to kill us."
Mer nodded in agreement. "But you gotta admit, it is kinda fun, sometimes. Oh, and by the way, have you talked to daddy lately? I don't know where he is."
Winter shook her head. "Nope. So... How's your Parabatai? I thought it was against the Law to leave your Draco."
Mer laughed. "Oh! It isn't against the Law, silly. It's just- it's just difficult. It makes me feel like something's missing. Like a big chunk of my heart's missing."
Winter grimaced. "So, how's Draco?"
Shrugging, her lip twitched. "He's okay."
"What is it?" Winnie rolled her eyes. She could tell her sister was hiding something.
"Nothing." She replied nonchalantly. "Why?"
Winter rolled her eyes once again. "Number one is because I'm your twin, number two is because we have magic, and number three is because I can feel what you feel sometimes and you are definitely hiding something."
"Okay fine... But, Winnie!" Mer whined. "I promised him that I wouldn't tell anyone."
Winter nudged her like an over friendly cat. "Please, please, please?!"
Summer looked at her, grinning. "Nope!"
Her grin slid into a look of pure agony. She hunched over, gasping a she held her shoulder where her binding rune was. "Dra-Draco's hurt!"
"What?!" Winter was shocked and helped her into an upright position. "But he's still in the castle! How?!"
"I don't know." She said between heavy breaths. "But I've got to find him!"
"Not like that!" She gestured to Summer's attire, which was a gray shirt covering her light blue swim suit and brown flip flops.
"But Draco's in trouble! What if he's dying?! What if someone's to torturing him?!" Summer worried. "I have to get to him!
"Here. Let me help." Winter pulled her wand from her boot. She wasn't going to swim anyways, so what's the point of wearing a swim wear? Whenever she touched the water, it would just freeze into ice. "Accio Summer's clothes!"
A pile of cloth floated to them, drifting gently in front of Mer. "Quick! Go change. Get ready to apparate."
"Thanks, Winnie." Mer called, relieved, from behind the changing sheet that Winter conjured up.
"No prob." She offered Summer her hand. "Are you ready?"
"Yes." Summer took a deep breath. "Let's go."
Winter and Summer turned together on the spot, hand in hand and appeared in a dark room.
"Draco?" Winter asked, her voice quivering. Summer clung to her elbow.
A hand pulled her down. "AH-mmff!"
It was Draco. "Are you two out of your minds?! This was a trap! It was all one bloody trap! I was the bait!" He hissed.
"Oh Draco! What did they do to you? And who are they?" Tears filled Summer's eyes as she hugged him.
Draco winced. "They were hanging me by my hands and electrocuting me. You should have never come here. They were talking about the Penhallow Twins and they told me you two were going to be captured to be taken to an arena to fight to the death."
The lights came on and a man came in. "Nice job, Marbolus."
Draco nodded. "My pleasure."
"Draco? What-?" Summer whispered, hurt."
"I. Am. Not. Draco. Malfoy." Draco said, enunciating every word properly.
"Where's Draco?" She flew at 'Marbolus', grabbed him by his shoulders, and started shaking him. "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH HIM?"
The man looked calmly on. He snapped his fingers. "Sedatives!"
A group of people in white lab coats came in holding a little box. Each pair held Summer and Winter down as the third person injected something into their bloodstream.
Woozy, Winter watched as Draco fell down in a heap. A dull light came into her mind. "Eidolon"
