I ran down the corridor straight towards the portal. My father told me I would be safe where ever the portal took me.
A blue light hit my head and I blacked out after taking a few more steps through the portal.
Ten Years later
"Just go through the portal, sweetheart." Father told me. I started running till my legs gave out. But not before a blue light hit my head taking my memories of my father and my warlock life with it. The portal grabbed me and dragged me in.
I woke up with a start. The nightmare appears every night with my father replaced by a black figure. I don't understand why I can never see my father. I mean my father has been with me my whole life. I think I should be able to remember what my father looks like. I tried to find sleep and was welcomed with another dream.
"Alec, take care of my daughter. She is going to see things in her future that I hope you can help her avoid. Alec, I'm going to do what I did to Clary. I'm taking her memories. Help her, Alec. Make her believe that she is yours." the black figure said.
"But what if I can't make Kylie think she's my daughter? What if her powers start to show? She's just like you, you know, Magnus." Alec said.
I was shaken awake. I opened my eyes to see my father, Alec.
"Kylie, what's wrong? You were screaming." he said. I looked at him confused. "Well, it doesn't matter. It's your 18th birthday, I got a whole thing planned. how about you get ready and I'll get the rest of the day set up?" he asked.
"Sounds great." I said. He then walked out of the room leaving me to my thoughts and to get ready. I thought back to the dream. Don't dreams mean something? Is Alec my dad? Or is this Magnus guy my father?
I quickly got dressed in the outfit that was laying out for me to wear today. (A/N outfit at top) Obviously chosen by my Aunt Isabelle. There was a note beside it to confirm this
Happy Birthday! You should wear this today. And don't worry. I already talked to your father about it. He's okay with you wearing it.
I quickly threw it on and zipped it up. I walked out the door and looked down. A small black box sat on the ground. I picked it up and opened it. Inside held a small bracelet. Black with diamonds all over. I smiled and saw the note. It told me that this was present number 1. There was 9 more to go. It also told me to head to the kitchen. I walked into the kitchen to the smell of pancakes. Dad sat at table with pancakes in front of him.
"Ready for pancakes?" he asked cheerful. I laughed at his cheerfulness and sat down. The question from earlier came to my mind. Is he my real father?
"Papa? Can I ask you a quick question?" I asked.
"You just did, but okay. Shoot." he said. I nodded and continued.
"Are you my real father?" I asked bluntly. He seemed shocked but quickly recovered.
"Want the truth?" he asked. I nodded my head yes very quickly to hear his answer. "No." he stated plainly. "Magnus Bane is." He quickly exited the room with out saying another word. Magnus Bane? Research time!
