The Power Within

17 year old Scarlet Deane is a good student with a boring life,...according to her. She is bored of her boarding school, students, teachers, lessons, nothing is fun anymore and the question of who she is, is coming more up lately. Since there is no escape from her school the only thing she can do is hoping that the answers to her questions she has been seeking for will find her instead.
And upon the arrival of a new student called Drake Pyrone, Scarlet's prayers are answered.


4. Scarlet

It was midnight already, Scarlet didn't even feel the need to sleep, she never did at night. In the middle of the night she always felt more awake than in any other part of the day. She wanted to go outside, to explore the dark and beautiful night. She was sitting on her bed in her room, the lights were off and her curtains were open.  The sky was full of stars and in the middle of the sky a full moon shined and led up the darkness. The sight of the sky was hypnotizing, Scarlet couldn't stop staring at it. Her alarm clock beeped, 00:30, the perfect time to escape without anyone noticing.   Scarlet put on her sneakers and a jacket and opened the door silently, she closed the door behind her and tiptoed her way out of the dorme.   No one knew she was doing this, no one even thought Scarlet would break a rule, but recently she had the urge to do stupid and impulsive things. She felt caged and angry, the last few months were a blur but she knew she had screwed up to much. Scarlet  was done with playing by the rules she had lived by and wanted to live how she wanted and not society. And thanks to that decision she didn't had a lot of close friends anymore. Scarlet exited the emergency door at the end of the hallway.   When she stepped outside she felt the cold winter wind on her face, and took a deep breath of the fresh Schotland air. Scarlet looked around quickly and when the sight was clear she sprinted towards the forest. After a short walk she reached the lake. The lake was usaully the most beautiful when there was a full moon, the reflection of the moon was five times the size of that in the sky. Scarlet kicked of her sneakers and rolled up her jeans so that they won't get wet. She dipped her feet in the ice cold water, she didn't mind she just liked the touch of the water. She looked around, no one would come here in the winter but she still felt a presence of something, but she didn't know what. She turned around to look at the lake when suddenly a hand touched her shoulder. Scarlet didn't scream, she turned around hoping not to see a teacher and luckily it wasn't one. She saw Drake standing behind her but something felt different it was almost like she felt a different energy around him this morning than now.   "What are you doing here?" I asked nervously. "Looking for you." I couldn't see his face clearly he was standing in the shadows wich covered almost all his face except for his mouth. "Why?" I didn't know what to say besides that. He stepped forward, closer to me, revealing his face in the moonlight. His eyes where glowing like stars stolen from the sky. I felt hypnotized. He stepped closer to me but I didn't manage to move and before I knew it his lips where on mine. It was just for a split second. But it was enough. The second time Drake  leaned closer towards me, he kissed me passionately. This time I felt his arms around my waist pulling me closer to him, I put my hands on his shoulders and leaned on him. I felt alive and felt like his kiss melted me. I closed my eyes, and lost track of time. But when I opened my eyes I wasn't at the lake. I was staring at the ceiling of my room. Scarlet slowly stood up and sat on her bed. She looked at the alarm clock, 04:21 P.M., in three more hours she would have to wake up. Scarlet thought to herself she probably had fallen asleep and had never been tonight at the lake, she never kissed Drake. But what did this dream meant? Why did she kiss some guy she only met today? It wasn't exactly the time to try to find the answers, and after all it was just a dream. She lay down again and closed her eyes, it still felt like Drake's hands where around her waist and she still felt the soft touch of his lips. It felt to real to be a dream. Still thinking Scarlet felt asleep and just before her eyes closed completely she caught a glimpse of a shadow behind her window. As fast as possible she jumped out of her bed and opened her window, but there was nothing outside. Scarlet was seriously getting crazy and was seeing ghosts. She walked back to het bed and lay down. She curled herself up in her blanket and fell asleep.



I knew that voice very well, the last time I heard it I was seven and the last words that voice said were, "Goodbye Scarlet, I'll see you again when it is time.."   And clearly it was time.   I turned around, "Agatha, it's been a long time" I said. "It really has been a have changed Scarlet, you have grown into a beautifull woman since the last time I saw you." "And you haven't changed a bit."  And she really didn't, Agatha was still a young woman, even though ten years have past since the last time Scarlet saw her. She still had long white hair, and her face was full of the same youth it was years ago. She wore the same long and red dress and her eyes where twinkling like black stars.   "Why are you here Agatha?" "I still can't tell you until you find out who you truly are, but for now just needed to warn you." "Warn me, from what?" "From what is coming, your life will become dangourus dear child, I can't stop what is coming but I can warn you, listen to my words Scarlet, don't trust anyone but yourself." "If you say so, why should I trust you?" A small smile appeared on Agatha's face, "Not only beautifull but smart as well, to trust me or not is a choice that's up to you." I didn't understand Agatha, I was just more confused than I was before.


Agatha first appeared in my dreams after my parents death when I was four. Everything from that time was now just a blurred memory, but Agatha was one of the fewest things I remembered crystal clear. I was devastated after the death of my parents, and then all of the sudden Agatha appeared in my dreams. She talked to me and gave me advice, she was like a mother to me. The psychologists thought it was some post traumatic psychological disease that I developed. Making up a woman that could be like a mom for me. But I knew Agatha was something real and not the fruit of my imagination. But when she disappeared when I was seven I thought the doctors where probably right and that I just had a wild imagination. But here she was, standing in front of her again. Agatha looked timeless like the years didn't have a influence on her.


"Why did you leave me Agatha?" She sighed, and looked into my eyes, her eyes looked sad and tired. "It was the right thing to do for you, when I was around you I endangered you, I did it so you could be safe." "Safe, from what? And if you endanger me why did you return?" "I can't tell you what the thing that is looking for you is, you'll have to find out alone, but the only thing I can tell you is that it is related to your family..., find out who you are Scarlet and we shall speak again." "Agatha wait!!" But she had already disappeared into the darkness around me. Leaving me alone again.   I had to many questions. Why did Agatha appear? What did her warning mean? What was after me?   And most importantly,    Who am I?
