Ludwick stood his ground, he watched his father get into the car and drive off. "What's up with him?" Golong asked, "It seems like that book was part of work, and you going into it wasn't a good idea" Ludwick said, who sat down on the coach. "What was It called again?"
"Summoning Spell, I remember the words you know". Golong smiled, Baloc laughed, "okay then, what were the words then?"
His voice seem to echo through the house, "don’t say that again Golong" Ludwick as he got up, "I think something is happening". The kids were silent, sure enough they could hear something, it was a whooshing noise. "Guys, get away from the windows whatever you do, there's something out there!" Ludwick whispered, quickly all the children centered themselves in the middle of the room, keeping clear of the windows. Shadows flickered past the windows. They could hear voices. A sudden knock on the door. The children did not move, "how is it that the spell worked, I didn't use my hands" Golong said in a whisper.
"Did you read the whole lot of the spell?"
"No, I don't think so".
"There are some spells that can work without using your hands though".
The door flew to their feet, it was taken off the hinges. The kids screamed, a tall lanky lady with dark clothes and long hair was standing at the door, "it's rude to not let someone in". She said in a raspy voice, she was walked in. "Who are you exactly?" Ludwick asked, "I am the blood child of the great lord, surely you know that since you summoned me and my master". Baloc saw another stranger walk into the room, it was a male, he looked to be in his twenties. "They were the ones that summoned us, I thought better", he examined the room, "quiet a weird place to live!"
"Clause, shut up, never speak to the ones the summoned us that way!"
She turned to the kids once more, "come, I think our lord would be pleased to see you four". They didn't move, the lady smiled, "alright, I'll guess we'll do it the hard way. She brought out her hands and it went dark.
Seth got out of the car and headed into the building, the book still under his arm. How his kids were able to get to this book. Did he lock his study, Most probably not. He saw Inglewood, he was his boss. He was tall, well built and bossy. He tried not to make eye contact, he was already in enough trouble as it seemed. But to his dismay he felt a hand grab his shoulder followed by a rough voice. "Hey there Seth, hope you haven't been causing any trouble lately?" She tried to ignore the fact that he knew what he was talking about. "It wasn't my fault, I was just trying to get back at him for what he said, he started it!" They continued through the hall, "don't start playing the blame game" Inglewood said, "you should never fight one of your own clients". Seth was unsure about his boss, for some reason he wasn't yelling at the top of his lungs as he would to others. "The only reason why I'm not going mad at you is because of what the client said to you that made you go mad". Seth tried not to remember what that man said to him, it was too hurtful, long ago he was married and lived happily. But then one day she died, her death was unknown. He was tortured that the fact that she was gone forever. He was interrupted by Inglewood's voice again. "You can't throw magic at them though, it's against the rules here and I would've fired you on the spot if you weren't as good as you are". Seth realized that he had no clue where he was going, he ended up at the front of Inglewood's office. "Well then, we should talk about it, come on inside". Inglewood pushed Seth into the office, it was quiet big. Shelves were stacked with books from laws to magic spells. "Sit down over here". Seth followed Inglewood to the table. Inglewood eyes the big book under his arm. "Where'd you get that book?"
"It was at home."
"Why bring it here?"
"My kids were looking through it, it had some spells that weren't for them".
Inglewood eyed the book, "and what spell did they find?"
"It was a summoning spell".
Inglewood motioned for Seth to pass the book, "what page was it?" Seth flipped the book open and showed him the page. Inglewood frowned, "hmmm, a very dangerous spell did your kids read out the word?"
"When I was there they hadn't said anything about it, they let me have a look, and that’s when I took it off them. I'm sure they'll be fine".
All of a sudden a man came rushing in, "sir, we have a problem!" Inglewood looked at him, "how bad because i really need to talk to Mr Peirce".
"Real bad it's coming from Mr Pierce's house". Seth got up, "what happened, are the kids okay?" The man shrugged, "we just sent some men down to your house, they'll be calling in a short hour". Seth put the book down, "Seth, hold on a second", Inglewood was staring at a paragraph. "How long do you think your kids had the book?"
"I don't know, maybe a while, because I wasn't in the house". Inglewood closed his eyes, "this spell can be created even if you don't use your hands, I'm guessing your kids could haven remembered the words and pronounced them after you left". Seth rubbed his temples, the only one that would try out spells in the family would be Golong. The man returned, "they aren't there, they can't find any trace of them, how many kids sir?"
"I have four kids".
The man left the room once more. "Seth I really think you should give your kids to the council". Seth turned to him, "I would never, Mink believed that I could look after them".
"Seth, Mink isn't here anymore, and she believed, but look what's happened now". Inglewood stood up from his chair, he was taller than Seth. "I'm telling you, you have to give the children in, who knows, they might be dead.
