“Ugh!” A gentle shaking roused Ophelia from unconsciousness and she found herself lying on the footpath. “I’m alive?” She tried to sit up but a wave of nausea stopped her.

“It certainly seems so.” Aunt Sophie removed her hand from Ophelia’s shoulder. She sounded torn between amusement and concern. “You must have been dizzier than you thought if it made you faint. I didn’t think I spun the car that much.” Read the rest of this entry »

“I told you that it wouldn’t help,” Aunt Sophie said as Ophelia climbed into the back seat. “Let John deal with her. He can always cheer her up when she gets like this.”

“Does this happen a lot?” Ophelia swallowed guiltily. How could she have missed it? Read the rest of this entry »

At the gate, Ophelia paused and looked in cautiously to see if Kate was around.

“She’s looking for someone she doesn’t want to run into,” Sera said. “Kate Brooks.”

“Oh, the girl Philip mentioned yesterday?” Read the rest of this entry »

“The park’s been vandalised,” Cass said the next morning as they prepared for school. “See, I’m right about it being dangerous.”

A few streets away, Kate Stevens sat on a bench in her garden and contemplated revenge and how to get it when Ophelia had some sort of superpower. If only someone else had seen it, she could have reported the girl as potentially emerging. If she could get anyone to listen to her she still could, except the fact only she’d seen it would get her the same problem and she didn’t need that. No one needed that.

“Call me Sera,” she said absently, clearly mulling over what had been said. “Mum was clearly on something when she named me.”

“Very well, Sera,” Silver said.

“So you must have slipped into the area where normal people can’t see you, as well,” Sera said. “That’s why it didn’t attract attention.”

“You’re late!” Ophelia’s mother had her hands on her hips when she met them at the door. “You’d better have an explanation for this or you’re grounded.”

“Fifteen minutes isn’t late, mum. Fifteen minutes is delayed – especially given your impossible schedule for getting back by bus.”

“It is late! The bus leaves school at twenty five to four and reaches the nearest bus stop at ten to four. It’s a fifteen minute walk from the stop-” Read the rest of this entry »

“Urgh!” She collapsed to her knees, only now aware of how exhausted she felt and of a dark guilty depression forming on her gut. She swallowed, trying to push it aside, but it remained nagging at the edges of her consciousness. It took her a moment to realise that tears were trickling down her cheeks.

“Really?” Ophelia heard herself say as she sidestepped the attack. “You’ll have to do better than that if you want to kill me.” She clutched the crystal even harder. “I need a weapon.”

It warmed and a glowing blade made of the same red light as that which surrounded her appeared in front of her.

“That was a really weird day,” Ophelia said as they walked back through the park. She paused as she spotted the boy she’d seen the creature attach itself to earlier walking ahead of them. The creature was still coiled around him. “Oh it’s that boy.”
