I was on the verge of a panic attack. How could Katherine be so level-headed at a moment like this? I had to admit, Lucus was brave. The way he just charged the shadow warriors head-on as if he was in a fight at school. Despite my protests, I knew Katherine was right. I had to use my powers and fast. The ghostly forms were closing in on Caleb; after all he’d done for us, I couldn’t let him die. I stood absolutely still and blocked out the back round noise. I closed my eyes and felt a tug in my chest. A tingling sensation surged over my body, causing my eyes to fly open. Thrusting my arms forwards, I focused my new-found energy on the shadow army that was now advancing on us. I felt heat shooting out of my hands. The warriors screams filled the forest, then everything went blank.
I woke up to three sets of eyes staring intently at me. My back was leaning against an Oak tree and Katherine was trying to pour water down my throat.
“W what’s happening?” I asked, my eyes starting to properly focus on my surroundings.
“You killed them. You used your magic.” Caleb replied. He looked pretty shaken.
“Then you passed out. The force probably drained you.” Katherine said.
“What do you mean ‘the force’? What is this, Star Wars?” Lucus joked. Katherine rolled her eyes. Both of us knew how much Lucus loved to joke around. Caleb, on the other hand, looked deep in thought.
“Whats the matter?” I asked him.
“Nothing,” was the only reply.
“Thank you for saving us.” Katherine said.
“Any time, Kat.” I said. But the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to try it again. Perhaps next time I’d be able to control it better, rather than using so much I knock myself out. I had made a discovery deep within myself and I was determined to use it well.
“We better start moving before Phobos sends another batch of his minions.” Caleb said. Katherine helped me to my feet and we began following Caleb. Neither of us had a clue what we would find at the Hall of Seasons, I could tell it was pretty important if some Dark Lord was trying to stop us. All we could do now was wait and see.
