When we got to the main doors, we were met by Joe and Willow, closely followed by Dawn and Indigo. I couldn't look at Dawn. 

"We need a meeting!" Joe said, hurriedly. Confused looks flashed across everyone's faces, except Willows. I looked at my watch.

"Look Joe, this will have to wait till tomorrow. It's nearly half eleven, and I don't know about everyone else, but I could do with some sleep - decent sleep." I went to walk past him, but he held me back.

"Henry, I know a lot has happened, and you could do with a rest, but this is urgent."

Kira looked from Joe, to Willow, to Dawn and Indigo.

"What is it? What's happened?" She said, worriedly. Dawn stepped forward. 

"That's what I'd like to know too. Being dragged from my room, without a reason." She said, rather angrily. 

"Not here. Somewhere private. Follow me." He led us to an empty room on the second floor. We made the journey in silence, and the castle seemed kind of freaky. It was dark, and no one was about. I could hear each individual footstep on the cold slabs. 

"What's going on?" I heard Indigo ask Willow quietly. I looked round.

"Let Joe explain. I'll miss something out." She said to us. 

When we got to the room, I fell into one of the chairs. My body was aching all over, due to sleeping in the forest, and all I wanted was to fall asleep in my comfy bed. Everyone sat down, apart from Joe and Willow. 

"Is anyone going to tell us what's going on, yet?" Dawn asked.

"Something's happened. We have received a message, and we need your help. The others are busy arranging everything so I'm the only one here to explain it to you." 

"Explain what to us?" I asked. I wished he would just spit it out all ready and get it over with. 

"Well, let me think, where to start..." Joe rubbed his eyes, thinking. 

"From the beginning. Start with what you told me." Willow said. So she knew already. 

Joe looked up at us all individually, and sighed.

"You see, your not the first Six." He said. I looked at everyone, and they were all looking at Joe, questioningly. 

"What do you mean?" Kira asked him. 

"He's saying, that there were another Six before us. It's the guardians. They used to be the most powerful." Willow said, excitedly. 

"But we had a traitor." Joe said to us. 

"Who? Whose guardian was the traitor?" I asked him. I couldn't imagine it being Delilah. She always seemed so... loyal. 

"No one's guardian was the traitor." Willow told us. I looked at Joe and asked: 

"Then who?" He looked up at me, and I saw a look flash across his face.     


The End
