"You're punishment is a month of grounding. You will not spend time with friends, you will not read, you will not be on electronics. Understand?"
"Yes ma'am." I say, sadly lowering my head.
"And you will have extra chores to do."
"I will not leave the house under my grounding without telling you two?"
My mother smiled. "Exactly." She hugged me. "I missed you-"
She was cut off by a sharp knock on the door.
My dad sighed. "Of course..." he walked over to the door, but just as his fingers touched the lock-
It burst open and a figure walked through, their hood covering their face. My father was thrown into the wall, and he crumpled to the ground. The figure forced my mother up against the hallway wall. "Why are you here?" they hissed. It was a feminine voice that spoke, and as it did the hood fell of to reveal the white blonde hair of a girl who looked about eighteen.
"Who the hell are you?" I cut in angrily. The emerald green eyes looked at me, but when they reached my pissed off face they softened.
"Emily?" her voice was soft as a small smile broke across her face. I froze. Her voice sounded so.....familiar. Where had I seen her from? Where had I known her from?
I glared. "Let my mother go, or I swear to God-"
"I cant do that. You know they aren't your real parents." she said as her voice hardened again.
"Yes, they are." I say, glaring.
"What's going on?" My sister says as she rushes down the stairs, freezing when she sees the girl.
The girl dropped my mother and started toward me menacingly, but I held my ground. "You really don't remember?" she whispered, her emerald eyes taking on a sad edge.
"Remember what?" I ask hesitantly. I wasnt so sure I wanted to know.
She took a deep breath. "Emily, its me. Sapphire. Your best friend. Your new protector."
