I felt someone shaking me lightly. "Aurora, wake up."
Getting up, I opened my eyes to see Jay glancing at the clock on my bedside table and tapping his foot impatiently at me.
"What do you want?"
"It's half past one. We're already late!"
"For what?" I said, confused.
"Lunch with master?"
Took me about a minute to finally get what he meant. Jumping up out of the bed, I readied myself, quickly combing my hair and making sure I looked decent enough.
Jay rolled his eyes at me as I slipped my hand into his and for the second time, we 'teleported'. When I heard soft piano music, I opened my eyes and looked around. We were in an indoor restaurant, not many people were here and there was only one table that was occupied.
"There he is," Jay said, leading me to a table located at the farthermost corner of the restaurant. "Hey master."
I looked at the man who he'd just called Master and gawked. Surely, Jay must have been pulling my leg or something. This dude was too young to be the master. He only looked like he was around his twenties, almost the same age as Jay. Not even white hair, only tousled jet black hair and tanned complexion.
"Aurora Zanderwood." His emerald colored eyes swept over me and I felt very concious of myself as he studied me. I gave him a quick nod and sat down next to Jay who smiled at both of us. After ages of silence, the young man stuck out his hand with a grin on his face.
"Nice to meet you."
I shook his hand softly and smiled back.
"Nice to meet you too."
"My name's Sophocles."
I waited for him to continue and then noticed that both of them were waiting for me to say something.
"Ur...nice name. How old are you?" I blurted out and then felt my cheeks burn up. I felt Jay elbow me in my ribs as a short lasting pain hit me. Glaring at him, I turned back to face the amused looking Sophocles. "You just seem a bit young to be little Jay's guardian."
"I'm twenty six my dear."
I frowned, hearing this. "But you were friends with my father and mother...it doesn't add up."
"I time travelled back to those times to help with the war. That's how I met your parents. You're mom was pregnant at that time."
I blinked. "Yeah of course, that makes...sense."
"She's still not used to this whole magic thing," Jay muttered, rolling his eyes at Sophocles who just grinned like a dope.
"Give her some time, she'll cope."
I hated being the topic of conversation and changed the subject to something I'd been wanting to know about.
"Have you seen my parents lately?"
