Fortunes |Book One|

Admit it, there's always a weird kid in the back of the class that nobody talks to. Don't pretend it's not true, because it is and you know it. People will always talk about how weird they are, but maybe that's because those kids are special. I'm not talking "Special help" special, or they have a mental condition, I'm talking special powers, abilities far beyond that of your imagination. These people are the weird kids in the back of the class for one reason only, they don't want anyone to know. When their secrecy is threatened, things can get...messy.

19. Chapter 19: Disappearance

Jinseinoshi woke up with a start from another dream ruined by the angry voices of his dead parents. He looked over to make sure Sorcellerie was alright before he rolled over to go back to sleep, except, she wasn't in her bed. Getting up, he began to look around the room. 

"Sorcellerie?" He called, quietly, not wanting to wake anyone else.

She wasn't anywhere in the room. Just as he was getting ready to wake Alkhimiya to help him look, something caught his eye. A note on her pillow. Picking it up with shaking hands, he began to read.

"Friends,

I've been contacted by my father. He is sick, and as a loyal daughter, I have gone to insure his health. Don't come looking for me. Don't worry about me. I'm fine. Just carry on as if nothing happened. As if I was never here. It would be best that way.

Sorcellerie"

Jinseinoshi instantly knew something was wrong. Getting up, he took the note and rushed to Alkhimiya's room, throwing open the door and shaking her awake. 

"What? What is it?" She asked, pushing her hair out of her face and looking around. "Jinsei it's two thirty in the morning."

"Read this," He ignored her protests, shoving the note he found in her face.

"This is strange..." Alkhimiya replied. "Where is she?"

"Not here," Jinseinoshi told her, scared. "She just dissapeared."

Alkhimiya was out of bed and looking for clothes before he could even blink. "We have to find her. Did you wake the others?"

"No," He turned his back to her so he couldn't see as she began to change. "You seemed the most...qualified I guess."

"Damn right I am," She explained. "But the others should help as well, their abilities and ideas may come in handy, and besides, she's their friend too."

"I'll go get Cretine," He told her. "You can get Aervisce."

"Are you still scared of her?" Alkhimiya teased. "That was almost a year ago."

"She nearly drowned me last time I woke her up!" Jinseinoshi defended. "Cretine is the timid one, so he's less likely to attempt to kill the person who wakes him."

"Oh I see how it is," the Russian joked. "Send your best friend to the death trap while you get off safe."

"No, that's not what I was thinking," He explained. "You have the training to defend yourself, I don't."

She ruffled his hair in a sibling like gesture. "Go get 'em."

He grinned. "Thanks."

A few moments later, they were making their way down the stairwell, a slightly singed Alkhimiya leading the way. They had come to the conclusion that her father had taken her, and that they had to get her back whatever the cost. Alkhimiya was convinced that Edmund had something to do with it, but she also agreed that her father was a suspicious character and that they should check her home first.

"Stop," Alkhimiya whispered, as they were about to turn the corner of the stairs. "McGuffin crossing."

They held their breath until Alkhimiya motioned them to follow her once again. "It seems as though she was merely passing by," she told them.

Soon they had made their way to the front gate, only to receive a crushing discovery. The gate was closed and locked.

"I was hoping you would show up," Edmund said, coming out of some bushes. "Father was able to get through the gate, being a parent and all but I can't."

"Neither can we," Jinseinoshi told him. "Alkhimiya might be able to climb over, but as for the rest of us..."

"Are you kidding me?" Edmund laughed. "You think I don't know what those two can do?" He gestured to the twins. "They could have that gate down in a second."

"We will talk about this stalking thing later," Alkhimiya growled at him, then she turned to the twins and in a much kinder voice continued. "He's right, do what you do best."

Aervisce began to glow silver as she called upon a gust of wind to lift her brother into the air, allowing him a better shot at the gate with less chance of someone getting in the way. As he was being lifted, Cretine began to glow gold and fire began to circle his hands. Cretine began to shoot fire at the gate, Aervisce joining in with a small tornado to help the fire along, as well as small chunks of dirt from the surrounding area. Soon the gate was smashed to pieces in the middle of the road.

"ALL OF YOU COME INSIDE IMMEDIATELY!" The piercing, shrill, voice of McGuffin screeched across the property as the woman began to storm down the front steps in a house coat, slippers, and a nightdress. 

"Run!" Alkhimiya shouted, taking off into the street. "Don't look back!"

Everyone, including Edmund followed, and soon the older woman began to slow down, unable to keep up with the much younger and faster teens. Everyone stopped to catch their breath once Alkhimiya had told them that McGuffin was probably just going back to the school to contact the police and their parents.

"Does anyone know where we are?" She asked, looking amongst her confused friends, each shaking their head.

"I do," Edmund spoke up. "But you'll have to trust me to lead you."
