Crystal

I blinked a few times but the blackness consumed us. "Who is she Lapin?" I asked. I needed to know. I wanted to know. Who was this child that I kept seeing?

"She? She is no one who you should know about yet." Lapin replied, but I knew that he knew more about it then I did.

"What do you mean?!" I shouted at him, all I wanted was answers and I still needed the most important answer of my life.

"I mean that you should not know!" Lapin snapped, then calming down he carried on,

"Little Sapphire, she is someone who comes later, someone who is important. I cannot tell you. Be ready...Crystal, I am soon going to leave and things will change."

When Lapin called me ‘little Sapphire' it made me smile like before and something inside of me seemed to glow. But why ‘little Sapphire'? It seemed very odd, but Lapin was an odd person or well phoenix. Then using his hand and made a tear in the blackness and walked out.

Okay Lapin how the hell do I get out of here? I could feel the wind blow my hair and I followed the scent that was surrounding me. Next thing you know I stood facing a tree that was by the lake, something caught my eye, something that looked out of place almost.

"Jordan? What the hell?" I sighed walking over to her then it finally came to me what was happening. I stood over her looking at her body, which was also when I noticed something looked different about her.

Jordan eyes fluttered open and she shoot up taking deep breaths. Her face was pale, sweat made her red hair cling to her face and her eyes were an angry red. Finally she looked up to see me looking down on her.

 "Crystal." She gasped then getting her breath, "Crystal... I just had a vision..."

"Ya you do that". I knew all too well what she could do.

"No...a vision of the future..." She took a few more deep breaths steadying her self. I only wished that I was sitting down, because her next words felt like a slap in the face. "You're going to die..."

Silence lingered around us as her words sunk in. "Crystal I'm sor-

"Don't." I snapped. "You don't see the future. I see the future. I see what happens to people. I see the future!" With every ‘I ' I stepped closer to her and snarled every word.

"I'm just telling you what I saw!" She shouted standing up a little too fast and fell. Atomicity I reached out to catch her, making sure I grabbed her covered body.

"Let's get you back to your room Jordan." I put her arm around my shoulders and half carried half dragged Jordan back to her room.

Once in her room I lay her down on her bed, then going to her bathroom and socking a cloth for her eyes.

"Close your eyes Jordan, you need to rest and this isn't good for the baby." She snapped her head up looking surprised. "Hey didn't even use my power, I worked it out and I won't tell anyone about it."

She studied me guessing weather to trusted me or not, but again she surprised me by what she said next. "Do you hate me Crystal?"

This took me completely off guard. "Why do you ask that?" I was confused by her question.

"Just something I said in my vision, about hating you and I...I don't know...I." She shrugged not knowing what else to say and closed her eyes. I put the wet cloth over her eyes and moved her hair from her face.

"Will you be okay? I could stay if you want be me too?"

"No I'll be fine."

"Alright. But Jordan if you need anything then asks okay. I'll see you soon." I walked to her door when she called to me.

"Crystal do you want to know about the vision, I think there's something important about it or well someone important about it."

"No I don't want to hear about it. I'll keep your secret, if you keep mine." I looked round and she nodded in agreement. I sighed opening the door then stopping again.

"Hate a strong word Jordan. Believe me I use that word for people. You might be able to guess who that is." Thinking of my father who I might be seeing very soon, then Corvina face came into my head. "But, I would never use that word on my friends."

 Hearing the soft melody coming from outside, my feet followed it without knowing where I was headed. Then I saw the gate into the rose garden, smell the sweetness of the flowers that bloomed and heard my mate Damien singing and playing the piano.

 
‘You cool your bedwarm hands down
On the broken radiator
When you lay them freezing on me
I mumble can you wake me later
But I don't really want you to stop
And you know it so it doesn't stop you
You run your hands from my neck
To my chest

  I smiled replaying one morning in my head where we're messing about. Running my hands over his bored back, spin, neck and his chest. He carried on playing and I crept closer to the gate, just watching him lost in the music.

 ‘Crack the shutters open wide
I want to bathe you in the light of day
And just watch you as the rays
Tangle up around your face and body
I could sit here for hours
Finding new ways to be awed each minute
'Cause the daylight seems to want you
Just as much as I want you'

 More like moonlight I thought to myself, unless I use my birthday gift from Midnight and then I can go in the sunlight.

‘Its been minutes, it's been days,
It's been all I will remember
Happy lost in your hair
And the cold side of the pillow
Your hills and valleys
Are mapped by my intrepid fingers
And in a naked slumber
I dream all this again'

The lyrics fitted so well for us and I walked into the rose garden. Damien saw me looking a little worried, whatever he saw on my face it made him carry on playing the song.

Crack the shutters open wide
I want to bathe you in the light of day
And just watch you as the rays
Tangle up around your face and body
I could sit here for hours
Finding new ways to be awed each minute
'Cause the daylight seems to want you
Just as much as I want you'

As he sang therse words I walked over to the piano, then I sat on the edge and all the while looking into his semi crystal blue eyes, they were changing colour. And so were his wings many were still black but some where white, his hair also changing. My oath was working but I still had some work to do. I knew the next verse to the song. I didn't want to be afraid anymore. Corvina wasn't going to win; I wouldn't let her take anything else away from me. This time I sang along side my mate smiling warmly at him.

 ‘Crack the shutters open wide
I want to bathe you in the light of day
And just watch you as the rays
Tangle up around your face and body
I could sit here for hours
Finding new ways to be awed each minute
'Cause the daylight seems to want you
Just as much as I want you'

We both just stared at each other and I knew right there how I felt about Damien. And also what I had to do, taking my phone out of my pocket I texted Lucas. ‘Tomorrow.'    

"Will come with me?" I suddenly asked Damien.

"Of course." He answered quickly without even asking me what or where we were going.

"Thank you." Then move to sit on his knee, his arm wrapped round me and I kissed him.
