Its lunch at the moment..... A fairy named Ibius is showing too much intrest in me for my own liking. Some how the name seems familiar.
Like I've heard one of them mention it before. Oh well.
I'm sitting under a willow tree. I bought a pot of pasta salad from the cafateria quickly. That Ibius has a large crowd and I don't need anymore hateful comments then they've been giving me.
"What you writing?" Alise jumps up slamming the book closed. She locks it and shoves it back into her bag.
"Nothing" She says staring at Ibius calmly. But he can see her fear and he saw the word. Enough to confirm his suspisions.
"You believe in Fairies?" He says leaning against a tree. He flashes a smile but Alise remains calm not smiling back.
"I dont see what that has to do with you" She hisses.
"A lot and you know it" Ibius says standing up. Alise steps back and her fear is plain on her face. "I wont harm you"
"How can I trust a Fairy?" Alise whispers taking another step back. Ibius sighs.
"If you run I will just catch up with you" he says shaking his head. Alise knows that but she doesn't care. She turns and begins to run but soon she finds herself pinned up against a tree by her wrists.
"Let go!" Alise says struggling but she knows it useless. Ibius disguise slips, becoming his true self. Invisble to the whole world except for Alise.
The full glare of his silver eyes makes her catch her breath and stop struggling. His skin seems to glow and sparkle at the same time against the light that flows through the branches.
"Told you, you shouldn't have run" he says. Then he notices her shock and feels and hears the race of her heart as the blood flows quickly round her body.
"Please let go" Alise whispers. "Please...."
She doesn't like the fact that this closeness seems to make her skin tingle and her pulse race. "Why can you see us?" Ibius insists.
"I don't know..... My family always has" Alise chokes out. Ibius eyes widens and he slowly steps back releasing her.
"Your..... your whole family tree? What side?" he asks.
"My fathers who got it from my grandmother....... My family usually only has one child on that side" she mutters.
Ibius face goes into worry. "I must go...... but I will come to see you again Alise" he says . Then he walks off.
"Wait..... why did I tell him all that?" Alise whispers. She looks down at her wrist to see a fading imprint of a Fairy cast.
"No, he can't be" She whispers. But its true. Now she remembers where she heard his name...... He's the High King and the Fairy cast imprint is the royal sign.
