I looked across the water, why does this feel so familiar? I took a deep breathe to steady my nerves. I couldn't look at him, but I had to know. “This is crazy but we have met before” I whispered needing to get it off my chest but hoping he didn't hear.
“Yes we have, in fact it was this morning” he drawled out, I rolled my eyes great he was making fun of me, or he is hiding something. I ran my fingers through my unruly hair trying to get a hang to soothe my frustration.
“No I mean when I was younger, I feel like we knew each other, maybe we were close but something happened.” I snapped at him. I turned to look at him, he body had gone rigid, his face a blank canvas. It sent shivers down my spine. Some deep inside was whispering to me. Run, get away, danger! I tried to shake it off but it wouldn't go.
“I am sorry but you are mistaken we have never met” his voice was emotionless, he just gazed across the laze “But maybe we could get to know each other”
I wrinkled my nose in disgust “yeah sure but there is not much to know, I'm not that interesting. I thought you would realise that by now” I muttered as I grabbed my belonging and began to pack them away.
He chuckled beside me “that is where you are wrong, if you look deep enough there is always something interesting” He smiled before a look a realisation hit him, he slipped his hand into her trench coat pulling out a letter.
“This came to my house, it was addressed to you, I have not read it so don't worry about that” He smirked holding her letter to me.
I read the address, it was my old home, I hadn't lived there for 11 years, since my father left me. I carefully opened the envelope an amulet fell out, it was a Jade green stone it held inside a black swirl cage. I placed it round my neck, as it felt like it belonged there. I pulled out the letter and was shocked beyond belief.
Dear Isabella Forest

Tears were streaming down my cheeks, I made no attempt to wipe the away. I was confused, my father loved my I thought he abandoned me. I didn't understand how could I be in danger? That there was more to me.
Caspian was staring intently at me, as if he was searching for something but not quite grasp it “ the letter was from my father saying that if he stayed would have be in danger, he have me this necklace to protect me. I don't know what it is but I do remember it” I whispered more to my-self than to him.
He looked at me as if he was burning deep into my mind, I could feel a strange froce trying to enter my mind trying to enter. I closed my eyes “No” I thought “how dare you try to get in” I felt a wave of power pulse from within me sending the unnown force out.
