“So should we still call you Silver?” Sera said when Kira appeared that evening. “Or would you prefer we call you Kira?” She positioned herself by the door to listen for anyone coming upstairs.

Kira shifted into her human form and shrugged. “Call me Kira in this form, other than that it’s up to you.” She sat down cross-legged on Sera’s bed. “I spoke to my family. They aren’t happy. Mother threw a fit and ordered me to ignore anything the key said. Gran and dad shut that down, but they are worried too. They don’t want Ophelia involved in a war with the Idri Council – it’s too dangerous. She can’t just banish Kithreiri like she can the Lost Ones, and no one wants a war on two fronts. But we can’t see any alternative – we don’t have anyone strong enough we can spare for the fight and Ophelia would have to go anyway because only the key knows where we are going.” Read the rest of this entry »

“I’ll have to tell dad about this,” Kira said as they walked to the gates after school. They had tried to talk to the Key again at afternoon break but it had just repeated the same images as before but with more urgency. “We have to do something. I don’t know what to think about all this but that hole scared me.” Read the rest of this entry »

“I think,” Sera said dryly. “That stopping whatever that thing is, is everyone’s fight.”

“You’re right,” Kira said. “But why is it showing us this? The Idri Council were at least partly involved in its making. If they want this thing, shouldn’t it be on their side?” Cold waves of fury emanated from the crystal at that. Fury aimed at its creators. “I guess that explains it, but why is it so angry?” Read the rest of this entry »

It was a forest, dark, dank and full of buzzing creeping insects. Wet and hot, far hotter than the unseasonably warm weather afflicting Caredale. Unless the Key was showing them a hot house somewhere Ophelia was certain this was nowhere in Britain. Somewhere in the tropics maybe?

Looks like it, Kira said. But it feels slightly off.

She was right, Ophelia realised. This might just be a vision but something was scratching against her skin. Read the rest of this entry »

Ophelia didn’t hate Physics as much as she hated Chemistry, but it certainly wasn’t her favourite subject. Especially since she and Sera had been having trouble getting their circuits to work in the last lesson and she hated feeling stupid.

“I did some reading,” Sera said as they took their seats. “I know what we were doing wrong.”“I hope so,” Ophelia said. “I’ll die if we fail again.” Read the rest of this entry »

“Are you mad at me?” Kira asked in a small voice after Ophelia dragged her and Sera into a corner out of earshot of anyone else at the start of their morning break.

Ophelia looked at her slumped shoulders and sighed. “I’m not mad. A little irritated maybe, but mostly confused. Why didn’t you just tell me?” Read the rest of this entry »

“Kate? Are you okay?” Amelia Edison put a hand on Kate’s shoulder. “You’re going weird again.”

“I’m fine!” Kate rounded on Amelia who paled and stepped back from whatever she saw in her friend’s face. Ophelia took the opportunity to head quickly towards the school door as the bell rang. Behind her she heard Kate swear loudly before yelling, “Oi! Get back here! I haven’t finished talking to you yet!” Read the rest of this entry »

“What do…” Ophelia trailed off as something plucked at the edge of her consciousness and she realised Sera was right. Kate was different in some way she couldn’t put her finger on. She pushed it aside and looked for a way to avoid a confrontation.

“Act casual,” she said as she spotted Mr Dooley and began walking towards him She wanted to get into his hearing range before Kate reached them.

“Good thinking,” Kira said. “She won’t dare try anything around a teacher… will she?” Read the rest of this entry »

“Did you sleep well?” Aunt Sophie asked when they came to breakfast. Ophelia and Sera exchanged a quick glance before Sera shrugged.

“Okay, I guess. Dad was snoring again. How can you sleep through that racket?”

“I’m used to it – he’s always snored.” She looked like she might say more but the landline rang. “I bet that’s Cass.” Read the rest of this entry »

It was cold and Ophelia could see nothing but white mist in all directions. She looked down and saw she was glowing like when she fought. She racked her brains trying to figure out how she got there but the last thing she remembered was going to sleep before getting back from Silver’s.#

“What the hell?” she said. “Where am I?” Read the rest of this entry »
