He stopped there, but Vergil continued to watch him expectantly.

'Go on' Vergil encouraged. 'Tell me about when you first met her.'

'Well…' Cam began. 'I don't really remember much. My brother and I…we left home and went out into the streets. That's when I first saw her. She was just a child, and so was I, we must be about the same age. She always stood out because of her hair, a beautiful and vibrant red…'

Vergil smiled silently as he listened.

'I…I really like her, and seeing her again years later, here…in this place……'

Cam bit his tongue, staring off into nothing.

Vergil tensed suddenly, unfolding his arms and taking a step back.

'What?'

'The pond' Vergil hissed, raising a hand and pointing.

Cam looked around, heart leaping to his throat. He saw the fish scatter as frost crept along the surface of the pond, creeping up the walls and down the steps to the grassy floor of the garden around.

'Oh no…' Cam whined, rising and stepping back. The instant he had noticed, it began to get worse. 'I can't stop it!' Cam cried, becoming hysterical.

The air grew heavy, and cold. Their breaths formed as mist before them.

'Extraordinary' Vergil sighed, gazing all around him at what was changing, not in the least bit phased by what was happening. 'What an incredible power…'

'I don't know how to control it' Cam sobbed, looking behind him as the air grew colder still.

It began to snow.

'Just be calm' Vergil told him in a level voice. 'You're getting emotional. It's what's triggering it.'

Cam bowed his head, beginning to tremble. He closed his eyes.

'Calm' Vergil spoke more firmly now. 'Don't let it control you.'

Cam hunched his shoulders, hugging himself and balling his fists. He took a slow breath, and then another.

The next he opened his eyes, the frost was gone, along with the cold.

The air around them was back to the way it was before, and there was only Vergil standing there before him, smiling widely.

'Good' he simply said. 'Good.'

Later that day, Cam sat alone in his room upon the bed, staring out of the window for the longest time, thinking about how strange that man was.

'He didn't seem scared of my powers' Cam mumbled to himself. 'He didn't even seem surprised at all.'

When he did glance Vergil through the window in the garden, Vergil looked up at him. Seeing him, he smiled and waved.

Cam tensed slightly, waving awkwardly back in response.

Vergil lowered his hand, he

turned and walked away. Cam stared after him, thinking to himself.

He's so strange. There's something off about him. He doesn't seem put off by me at all.

Cam spent many days in his room after that, wishing only to be alone with his thoughts. For the longest time he stayed on his bed, arms folded behind his head and staring up at the ceiling. Here he stayed, and here he thought about all the people he once knew. Luke, Valery who was supposed to be his wife and queen, his mother, his father, Durril, Elaina.

'I wonder what they're all doing now' Cam thought aloud to himself. 'I wonder if they're thinking of me……I hope they're all alive………'

He gave a heavy sigh, closing his eyes and becoming still.

There was a knock at his door several minutes later. Cam opened his eyes and sat up in bed. The sudden noise in the quiet had frightened him a little, and as he stared at the door, his heart beat a little faster in his chest.

'Who is it?' he called.

The door opened slowly, and Cam saw Andrew standing there, lingering on the threshold for a few seconds, before stepping in. He placed the tray of food he carried for Cam upon the table nearby, then turned to him.

'I'm glad to see you're doing well' he said to him.

'Yeah' Cam mumbled. 'I guess.'

'Still' Andrew added casually, 'you've not left your room for quite some time. I hope everything's alright.'

Cam glanced up at him, tensing slightly. 'Y-yes' he said hastily.

'Then what's wrong?'

'I just…' Cam looked away. 'I'm worried about……….the people I once knew……people who were dear to me.'

Andrew nodded in silent understanding.

'There is a man that's been asking about you.'

Cam glanced up.

'He's most insistent on seeing you again' Andrew went on. 'His name is Vergil. You know him?'

'Vergil's been asking about me?' Cam mumbled to himself. 'Yes' he spoke loudly. 'He……I met him a few days ago. He came here, and um…we walked through the garden, to the fish pond.'

'Did anything happen?' Andrew spoke slowly, an eyebrow raised.

Cam leant forward, resting his elbows on his knees.

'My powers came out' he said quickly. 'The pond frosted over…and…everything grew cold…'

Andrew watched him expectantly for several moments.

'You brought it under control then?' he asked. 'Your magic.'

'Yeah' Cam mumbled. 'Vergil told me to be calm, and so I tried…and I think it worked. It seems to happen when I get too emotional……that's what he said anyway.'
