Updated: 2018-02-10 19:02


Friday 20th June.

Cassy stared into her cup of coffee, completely oblivious to everything around her. Her life seemed perfectly fine on the surface but there were so many unanswered questions that she knew she could not live with much longer. The mug grew hotter in her hand, as she stared, and started to bubble.

"I would appreciate it if you would not break the mug Cassy!" She almost jumped of the stool in fright as Susan spoke. She had forgotten where she was.

"Sorry." she looked up into Susan's eyes and nearly burst in to tears. "I don't know what to do?"

Susan sighed. She had been waiting for this. She knew the questions about her past had been bothering Cassy but had not found a way for her to come to the truth on her own. She was afraid to tell her what Anna had seen in case she turned away from the group.

"Why have you come here so early Cassy? The others won't be here for another half an hour yet! Did you want to talk about something?"

"I need to know what's happening to me and why. I know you said everyone has gifts but just cannot use them, but you also said that it's strange that mine are so strong. I'm just… confused I guess. Nothing makes any sense." Her dreams had been getting worse. There had always been shadows and screaming voices, but there had been more. The bright light that Cassy had seen occasionally seemed to be so much further away now. The feelings of pain and fear never seemed to leave Cassy now, and the voice asking to be saved echoed through her mind.

Cassy had told no-one about her dreams and still did not know what they meant, if anything. All she knew was that her parents were lying and her whole life had changed since her birthday. Cassy was not even sure if the change was good or bad.

She had come to Susan's early today because she could not stand being around her parents, knowing that something was wrong.

They sat in silence in the bright kitchen neither one knowing what to say. This was one of Cassy's favourite rooms. Pale wooden cupboards ran along one wall with dark marble worktops above them. The floor was marble too and Cassy felt it was almost like walking on black ice. Even with all the dark marble, the room shone brightly as the sun streamed through the window reflecting of the highly polished surfaces, making rainbows on the walls. Cassy watched them dancing light and looked for patterns. The buzzing of the doorbell made them both jump. The group had arrived.

Friday 4th July

Cassy banged on the door. "SUSAN?" She shouted. She was an hour early, but she needed to talk. She banged on the door again just as it swung open.

"Oh Susan, thank god you're here."

"I'm not." She smiled. "I'm in the kitchen. Come on through." Cassy closed the door. Shaking her head. She never knew which Susan was real. She rushed through to the kitchen to find Susan.

"Now Cassy, what was all that noise for? You could wake the dead yelling like that."

"Sorry, but I found this." She handed Susan the paper in her hand. "Mum and Dad or rather Sam and Jen were both out when I got home so I found the keys and looked through the office, I found this. I'm adopted Susan. Why didn't they tell me?"

"I know darling." Cassy's head jerked up at the words. Susan looked at the papers again and saw the name Liza Johnson printed by mother. Just as Anna had said. She now had conformation.

"What? How could you?" Confusion and betrayal lit Cassy's face. Now Susan was lying to her. Was there no-one she could trust?

"Anna." Susan looked into Cassy's eyes and saw her confusion. "Anna did have a premonition before, the first day you came here. She saw your mother and father."

"Why didn't you tell me?" She screamed getting angry again. "Wh

me and try to sleep. Come back in the morning."

As Gavin left, Susan smiled to herself. Her plan was going smoothly. Only Gavin's emotional interference had not been considered. He was only a kid, what could he know of love, she felt sure it was just an adolescent crush nothing that could alter her plans. Only true uninhibited love could stop Cassys power from taking over now. Only the love of a witch for her could stop 'him' coming now. Cassy had opened the door with her rage and this was how he was going to enter.

Pushing and pulling books on a shelf Susan smiled as the shelves moved aside to reveal her inner sanctum. No one knew of this room. Only the right combination of books opened the hidden door. She knew it was a cliché, but it had amused her. This room was hers alone. Black candles lit up instantly as she entered. In one corner, covered with black cloth stood Susan's altar. She had prepared potions earlier in the day and they sat ready for use next to her spell book. Stretching from this to the far corner stood a shelf unit filled with bottles, jars and books. Magical symbols adorned the walls, amulets and crystals of every kind hung from the ceiling. Everything she needed for any spell or potion was here. A salt pentagram filled the floor and in its centre, a black cauldron smoked.

"You've done well so far but things will get harder now my love. I have almost broken through into her mind and I am growing stronger every time she uses her powers here, but I need more and time is running out. You must bring her into this room. Once I touch her mind within this pentagram, I can take her essence, her powers wherever she uses them will strengthen me. I will get stronger faster."

"What of the boy? He grows fond of her. I've blocked their link for now but it won't last long." Susan worried about Gavin realising that Cassy had been fed a potion to block her telepathy, but it had been necessary.

"You know what to do if they get to close. Nothing must interfere with my rebirth."

"Do you know who this girl is?" Susan had been pondering this for sometime now. Unsure if Adam knew.

"It matters not. I feel her strength we are compatible. She is the one that's all I need to know."

"But she is..."

"I said it doesn't matter." The voice boomed and echoed off the walls. "I want her. She belongs to me and no other." The words rolled like thunder around the room and Susan cringed from the sheer volume.

"Yes my love, my heart, my lord."
