Fita opened her eyes, her body was aching so much, it was quiet dark, she had no clue where she was. "Lud are you there?" She wasn't sure if that was loud enough, but her lungs were exhausted somehow. She could hear a faint stir, a voice was heard, "Fita, where are you?" She could just see a faint silhouette near her. Quickly she reached out, she could feel Baloc's rough hair, "where are the others?" She asked. Her eyes were adjusting to the low light. They seem to be in a room, further away she could see two other shapes on the ground, she crawled over to them, unsure it where anyone else but her brother's. She gave one of the shapes a sharp jab in the side. They moved with a stir, she was relived when she could hear Ludwick's voice. "Ouch, what was that for?"
"I thought you were dead".
"No I'm alive, don't worry, where are we?"
"I don't know, I think those people kidnapped us".
She saw Ludwick spring up, "what, are you kidding me, dad's gonna be pissed!" He started around the room, now Fita's eyes had adjusted fully in the dim lit room, it was almost like a storage room. She remembered the lady and man, but who were they? Voices were coming from the wooden door to her far right. She felt Ludwick as he pulled her to her feet, away from the room. "Baloc, wake up Golong, I have a plan". Baloc instantly kicked Golong, who sprung up, "careful, we don't need any of us injured!" He said sharply to Baloc who shrugged. The door flew open, at the moment Ludwick brought out his hand, a flash of light shot out of his palm, it was so bright, Fita was stunned for only a few seconds before her brother yelled for her to move. Without hesitating she bolted to the door, followed by her three brothers, jumping over the two bodies on the ground. They escaped into a polished hallway, it was light by many lights, Fita's eyes were hurting, but every time she slowed down she felt Ludwick pushing her along. They reached a door, Golong had pressed his ear up against the polished wood. "I can hear a lot of people in there", Ludwick looked through the key hole, "it's not actually a room, it looks like a main hall or something, come on, I don't think they'll notice us if we go along with it". Ludwick pushed open the door, the noise was louder than ever. Fita wanted to cover her ears, but she was afraid that Ludwick would bark out something and she'd miss it. "Okay, now everyone hold hands so we don't lose each other", he said. Fita grabbed Baloc's hand as he did so to Golong, Ludwick lead the way as he pushed past people. They eyed the kids off, Fita looked ahead, never make eye contact or you'll just cause trouble. "Hey, where are your parents?" Fita heard a voice, she smashed straight into Ludwick who had stopped. "We're trying to find them, we're lost, could you tell us where we are?" Fita heard Ludwick say, she peaked around his waist, a man was standing a few feet away, he looked down at her. "Ah, I see, so you are the kids they're after". Fita wasn't sure that this was good, was he referring to the people that kidnapped them? She watched as the man brought out a whistle, he blew on it, sending a shrieking noise that stopped everyone in their tracks. Fita's heart was pounding fast, what was happening? Around six wizards appeared, all wearing dark clothes, the two she recognized. She knew she had to run, Ludwick was already pulling her away from them. She pumped her legs, trying to hold onto Baloc from behind. "Quick, we have to get out of her, see if you can spot the exit sign!" He yelled, the people watched them run. All of a sudden her body froze, she struggled but her body stood still. All the children fell face first, "I'm sorry kids, but I can't let you leave, you're needed". She heard the man say.
Seth sat in the chair, his heart was thumping badly. How could this happen, he promised Mink that he's look after them, this job was a mistake. He was never at home, his relationship with the kids was horrible. He needed time to think things through. Inglewood entered the room, "thankfully I have a wizard who is willing to help us, and I think you might know him". Seth got up as he saw a tall wizard walk in after Inglewood, "Frost, what are you doing here?" Seth said with astonishment. Frost stared at him, "I was told about your kids, I can't turn my back on you after you saved my life". Seth tried to hold back the tears, many wizards hated Seth for who he was. He drank a lot after Mink died, he was a hopeless case. Frost joined Seth's side, "what happened exactly?" Seth tried not to look at Frost's worried face. "The kids have disappeared after maybe using a summoning spell".
Seth grabbed the book from Inglewood's desk and showed him, Frost examined the contents, "Seth you're kids are in trouble, if they disappeared because of this then we have to find them fast".
"I know, I just don't know about who this spell summons".
"I know, first there are two people, Minty Vogue and Clause Vogue, not brother or sister, married". Seth frowned, he had heard the name before, where was it from, "can we search them up?" frost raised his eyebrow, "have a feeling that you might know them?" Seth nodded, Inglewood grabbed a globe and rubbed it. "Show me Minty Vogue and Clause Vogue", mist spurted out f the globe as it came to life. Two figures formed in front of Seth and Frost, along with a family tree. Seth examined the lady with dark clothes and pale skin. She had brown hair and looked strangely familiar. "I know her, she looks really familiar to me". Seth said, Frost was looking through the family tree, he instantly grabbed Seth's wrist tight enough so Seth wouldn't ignore him. "Maybe this will light a match for you". He pointed at a spot of the family tree, Seth's heart almost stopped when his eyes landed on the picture or himself, a few year younger now, connected by a thin line to the lady. Mink was there as well, she was connected to him by a different colored line, the color line of marriage. "Seth, the reason why she looks familiar is that she's Mink's twin sister, she's you're sister in law!" Frost bellowed in awe.
