I woke up next to Erik, my heart was racing, and thank god it was just a dream. We were in our tent at the exiled camp; Eriks bare chest was rising and falling. I whispered to him, for him to wake up. His wide eyes fluttered open and he looked at me. “Hey, love.” He smiled. I kissed him and began to speak “I had a terrible dream, we were taken and I died, but then I came back to life and…” he interrupted me. “Stop, It was just a dream.” He smiled at me then climbed on top of me. We kissed and then Erik made love to me. I felt a surge of power run through me, more power than I had ever experienced before. I looked at Erik who was still on top of me., but It wasn’t Erik, It was the face of Jacobs older brother; Simon.
I screamed at the top of my lungs and kicked him off of me. I attempted to leave the tent but I wasn’t even in the tent, I was in the council room. I was naked and so was Simon who was trying to calm me down. “Get away from me!” I screamed, tears streaming from my eyes. He slipped on a pair of gym shorts, and handed me a t-shirt, I quickly put it on and then raced toward the door. Simon caught me and tried to restrain me, I elbowed him in the gut I kicked, screamed, and punched but it was no use. I finally gave up Simon put my hands behind my back and tied them there with fairy blood rope. I was bonded to this monster, Where’s Erik? I thought. Simon looked at me “He is safe, taking a nap actually, we hired a few sirens.” My cheeks were still wet with tears. “How could you do this to me?” I muttered. I stood up and kicked him in the stomach. “Why wont you fight back?!” I screamed as he flew against the white wall. He looked up at me. “I don’t want to hurt the baby.” Was all he said, I lost all control. I felt my wings, tail, and horns break my skin. I can’t let this monster be born, I punched my self in the stomach, and as I was drawing back for another punch Simon in his demon like form. Grabbed my hand and twisted it behind my back. I looked up at the ceiling and thrust myself through it, Simon flew after me but I was faster. I headed toward the treehouse, which was the only place they could keep Erik without the rest of the society knowing what they were up to. I flew like a speeding bullet, I heard the the air whistle around my flesh as I passed through it. I saw four witches circling the tree, their eyes closed, they were chanting. They didn't notice when I slipped through the door of the shack that lay almost hidden within the leaves of the oak. I smiled when I saw Erik, he looked at me "no!" He cried as I passed the threshold. "You can't get out now, nothing with a heart beat can leave the tree house once they have entered, there are witches outside." He looked down. My wings and such had not yet retreated, with the sharpest part of my dragon like tail I cut the fairy blood ropes the hog tied Erik. As I looked around for a way out, I felt somebody push me. The wind had been knocked out of me, I tried to breathe but it was hard. I looked over to see Simon kissing Eric, sucking the life out of his gorgeous body. I stood up and plunged my open fist into Simons back, I heard a crack as his rib cage was obliterated by the force, it was warm and bloody. I grabbed onto his beating heart and ripped it out of his chest cavity. As Simon fell to his knees I bent down and kissed him, sucking out the last bit of energy he had left. I then felt a snap in my chest, the bond was broken. I ran to Erik and fed him the energy I had taken from Simon, that was enough to bring him back to consciousness. I picked up one of the toy cars that were scattered on the ground and I looked out the door of the treehouse, one of the chanting witches were in my view. I pulled back, and like a professional pitcher, I chucked the car at her head, the next thing I new the little, green, plastic car was lodged in her skull. she fell to the ground in a similar way Simon had. Erik smiled at me, they must have needed at least 4 witches to keep that spell going, because we flew right out of the house. I reached into Eriks back pocket for his wallet...he always kept matches in his wallet. I struck the match against an oak plank and watched the treehouse slowly engulf in flames. A minute or so of flying later I looked back, the small forest like sanctuary the succubus lived in was going to drown in a sea of flames, they will be to worried about that, we will have a few hours head start.
Erik and I flew to the main rebel camp, 2 days later me, Erik, Daniel, jack, and a few other fables switched bases, we were going Devin Island, Canada. Before we totally went off the radar for a while I needed to talk to my family. Erik and I took a little detour through Michigan, when I saw the chesterville city limits I almost cried. We pulled into the driveway of my home. I walked up to the door and unlocked it with my house keys. Peri was on the couch watching TV, he looked at me. "AMY!" He screamed and ran to me, I embraced my little brother, it was may I hadn't seen him in almost 4 months. His hair had grown out a bit, I noticed how peri was growing. "MOM! AMY IS HOME!" He screamed, his medium voice cracked. I smelled Swedish meatballs, mom was cooking. All of a sudden my mother sprinted out, a child in her hands, he was Asian and looked like her was a little over a year old... Jasper. I hugged my weeping mother and my new baby brother. "Where is garnet?" I asked my mom. She looked down, " garnet passed away on March 27th, sudden infant death syndrome, the doctors said it was amazing that she lived so long." New tears rolled down her face. I hugged my mom again, she was roughly an inch shorter than I. She pulled out her smart phone and dialed my fathers number "amethyst is home!" She said," can you get ahold of the kids, and everybody else!? Okay I'll see you soon darling." She hung up. "Baby, I thought you were dead." She hugged me again. Only then did she notice Erik, who was standing behind me. "This is Justin I presume?" Her face was tear streaked. I shook my head negatively, "this is Erik, Justin's older brother." Erik smiled. " you raised amethyst better than any mother could." He said softly. She looked at me again, "you have explaining to do, we can wait till your father gets here so you don't have to explain it twice." And just like that my father, ruby, Alex, pearl, Stevie, aunt Sheila, and lily. were crowded in my living room. I got more Hugs than I ever could have imagined, not that I’m complaining. “I’m not staying.” I raised my voice over everybody else. My dad stepped up, “Yes you are young lady, and you will not see this boy again.” I smiled at my dad and turned to give Erik a rather passionate kiss. He didn’t drop dead, and since we re-mated his eyes turned blue like mine. The room fell silent “I love him, he is just like me. He can give me love and attention, a future with children whom I can raise, teaching them what they are. This town cant offer me any of that.” I said. “So you’re going to drop out of school?” my mother asked. I shook my head. “I’ve been taking online classes, just like Erik did when he turned 13. I know you guys worry for me...” my father then interrupted. “No, you are never leaving this house.” He roared. There was only one way I could make him understand just how much I needed to leave. I heard the bones in my back shift I heard the cracking sound my skull and tail bone made as I grew my extra body parts. Erik made sure my blouse and skirt were held up. The shrieks coming from those I loved were not very pleasant, I felt like a monster… I was a monster. I walked toward my mother and father and placed one hand on each of their shoulders. As my succubus appendages receded I delivered the memories of the moments I shared with Erik, of my Royal adventures, of me ripping the heart out of the chest of my enemy. The looks on their faces were of genuine disgust and amazement. My Family let me walk out of the house without further protest. Erik and I were on our way to Devin Island, we needed to hide from the society, they weren’t going to give up until I was dead or they had what they wanted.
Four months have gone by and my stomach is bulging. Daniel knows there is a possibility my unborn twins are Simons, but we are hoping for the embryotic test to show Erik’s DNA. We went to a fable hospital; it looked nothing like a hospital, more like a tattoo parlor. “Two heart beats!” the elf had said as he moved the ultrasound head across my belly, that was two days ago, the results are in. It was the same red haired elf that treated us two days prior. “I don’t know how this is possible with the whole ‘succubus mating’ thing but the babies have different fathers. The bigger fetus, the boy, is not Erik’s. The smaller girl is. “is there any way to get rid of the bigger one?” I asked. The elf looked at me like I was a monster. “No, It would kill you, this far into the pregnancy the baby can take your energy, when it dies it would latch itself to you and you would die with it. You need to be very careful…If you miscarry this far into your pregnancy, you almost definitely won’t survive.” the elf said. On the car ride back to the hidden fable village on Devin Island I glanced over to Erik. “We need to kill it when it’s born.” I said. He nodded and turned back to the road.
