It was about forty-five minutes later that Ophelia heard the loud thumping as her her mother charged up the stairs and burst into the room.

“Oh! Ophelia!” She grabbed her daughter into a hug. “I’m so sorry!” I’ve been so self absorbed that I didn’t even notice you were getting sick.” She sounded on the verge of tears. “You should have said if you didn’t feel well. I told you to be careful.” Read the rest of this entry »

Ophelia felt quite a bit better when they woke for school the next morning. Even so she still felt pretty awful and had to cling to the wall in order to make her way downstairs to the kitchen without assistance.

Aunt Sophie took one concerned look at her and ordered her straight back to the bedroom. Read the rest of this entry »

“Okay!” Kira transformed and hid under the bed again. “You really need to vacuum under here if I’m going to be hiding here a lot.”

“Won’t he think I’m dead?” Ophelia asked.

Alsia shook her head. “No doubt he thinks that you are dying but our kind forge a link to those we use our venom on. The antidote will break it but he’ll know that you survived and come after you.”

“How many times do I need to tell you that I’m not here to fight? Not with you and not with her?” The woman gave Kira a look of exasperated forbearance when she didn’t budge. “I had hoped that it wouldn’t come to this but there’s not enough time to persuade you.” She made a gesture and an invisible force lifted Kira off her feet, gently pushed her against a nearby tree and held her there. Bands of ice wrapped around her and fastened her firmly to the trunk. Kira yelped and struggled futilely as the winged woman walked towards Ophelia. Read the rest of this entry »

“Hmm… if we didn’t have this stopgap potion you’d only have a few hours. With it you probably have a day or two before it loses effectiveness and you lapse into a coma. I’d be amazed if we don’t have an antidote by then.” Read the rest of this entry »

All through the teleport Ophelia could feel an icy cold spreading out from the wound. By the time their feet touched the grass of the park her legs wouldn’t support her and she sank to her knees.

A/N:  Check out my latest blog post with various updates.

Once again the Kithreian managed to leap out of the way. His eyes fixed on the Key as he turned to face her again.

“Ah! I see! You’re a thief using Andarian-mirian’s property. A clever thief to work out how to use it. A talented thief to be able to use it at all.

It nearly worked. It would have worked if he hadn’t turned around in his constant sweep for trouble. As it was she was almost on top of him when he spotted her charging at him. His surprise hindered his ability to get out of the way. He managed to dodge her attack for the most part, but she managed to get a second shot in as she flew past him and catch it across one shoulder with the hammer.
