Untitled Poem 1Silent tears,
Fall upon the pages,
She writes as she waits,
For reality to pick on someone else,
Why does luck,
Work both ways?
It gave her the perfect prince,
It curses her to be apart from him,
It seems like a whole,
Drives the two of them further apart,
Blaring in her ears,
As she tries to talk sense into herself,
She's being fullish,
She know's she's being stupid,
And she know's this will make him happy,
To go some place where everything isn't upside down,
But she's afraid to face the withdrawl,
To go head first into something she know's will kill her inside,
It's hard enough already,
The armor that was shed,
Lies in the corner,
Though she's hesitant,
She know's they must be put back on,
The shelter she had built so long ago,
The shelter that protected her from the world of reality,
The imaginative life that once played for her every day,
Once on pause,
Starts up again slowly,
She know's she's being stupid,
But sometimes it's hard not to be,
Auroran Chapter 15Chapter 15
Kate stood staring at a small, white washed cottage house in a field on the out skirts of a town. Two children were playing in the front yard while a middle aged man sat slumped over smoking a wooden pipe. The children seemed to be playing an assortment of games ranging from tag, to hide-n-go-seek. They were laughing and giggling with each other as they enjoyed the warm spring day.
One of the two children was a skinny scruffy looking boy who seemed to be missing one of his front teeth. The other was a girl with long brown hair that shimmered red in the sunlight.
As the two ran around the house chasing each other, the man stayed silent and still. He himself looked scruffy and was dark skinned. He looked as if he had spent most of his life out doors in the sun.
Now be careful you two and dont hurt yourselves. We dont need any accidents. He warned as he stayed in his seat by the front door.
The two children merely carried on their game o

Kate tried to open her eyes as she felt her body slowly drift towards the floor. Her heart raced as the warmth of a persons hand gently stroked her cheek. Forcing her eyes to open, Kate stared up into what she believed to be the pale blue eyes that she knew only belonged to one person Suan.
Kate he whispered just loud enough for the two of them to hear.
She couldnt see him, but she knew perfectly well that he was there.
Are you ok? he wondered, your wrists look awful by the way
Thank you Mr. Obvious, she smiled as she heard Suans low chuckle.
Kate could hear the worry in his voice. Feeling relieved that she was safe; Kate carefully leaned her head against his chest and inhaled his sent.
I-Im fine, she sighed quietly. I was drugged though. I dont know how much longer Ill be able to stay awake she smiled faintly.

Crest Isle; and a Fathers Word
Sarah tapped her foot impatiently as she watched the door of the Cathedral. It had been hours since she left Kate, she should have returned by now. Where would she have gone to? Had she fallen asleep in the field?
Sarah stop worrying, Im sure shes fine. Acquiesce said as her eyes followed Sarah pacing. Its not like she cant take care of herself.
I know, but I have a very bad feeling about this, she said turning to face the spirits on the table. Where could she have gotten to?
Well if it helps any, while she and I were merged, I saw many names flowing through her mind. One in particular and that was Suan. Dinni piped up.
The prince? Sarah asked questionably.
Well maybe he knows where Kate is lets go!
Suan stared out of a dark window as he once again tried to drown out the sound of his sisters speech. She

Six weeks passed and neither Suan nor Kate saw each other. While Kate was busy studying and training, Suan was busy helping his sister find a way to stop the war. The two ended up forgetting about each other during the day.
During the passing days, Kate finally conquered controlling her spiritual chamber. She had begun using more difficult and complex skills. Sarah said that she had expected as much since Kate was the Guardian of Light. The spirits were naturally pleased with her progress.
On occasion, when Kate was finished helping around town (a duty that Sarah once did, but concerning she needed practice, she was more than willing to give up this chore), she would go and visit Auroran. Hed been docked in Scarlet the entire time and did not have many visitors. During her visits she informed him on her training and how much she had improved. At first he was upset that he wasnt traini

Yawning, Kate tried to keep consciousness as she starred down at the orange paged book in front of her. Sarah had a few classes in the morning, so she had rummaged through the library and pulled out a large stack of books for Kate to look through. They all had the same genre: Spirits. Most were the typical history of spirits, how to do simple spells, and so on.
One particular book that Kate took interest in, described the difference between the Divine Spirits, also known as the Tri-Aura, and the world spirits, such as Acquiesce and Gerad.
Picking up her head, Kate itched her nose as she felt the urge to sneeze. The small pile of books looked as though they came from the oldest part of the Cathedrals library. All of them looked worn, many of their spines were not connected any more, and their titles were peeling off around the edges. When Sarah dropped them on the table a pillow of dust and the smell of aging paper flew into Kates face. Since then the dus

Kate gave a deep sigh as she hung herself over the rail of the ship. She had been up all night thinking about the prophecy. It was a dramatic change for her and she didnt know what to think of it.
Staring out to the endless ocean, Kate couldnt help but listen to Suan and Auroran singing a song. Looking over her shoulder she smiled as she saw how happy Suan was. The night before the two of them had argued for a few hours, and all the while he seemed to be distracted with something. At least now he seemed to have forgotten his bad mood, almost like how Kate had.
Leaning on the rail, Kate watched as Neil joined in with the festivities. She couldnt help but laugh at the sight of all three of them enjoying themselves. Smiling she took a deep breath of the salty air and looked towards the horizon.
Hey theres land! she shouted pointing to a large land mass forming in the distance.

Kate were not going to chase Gregmor and his fleet! Ive been striving my whole life to stay away from the Navy and their maniacs! And Im not just about to turn myself in! Im a wanted man, if you havent forgotten! You are too if Im not mistaken! Suan yelled crossing his arms in anger.
Auroran and Neil switched their eyes to Kate for the next burst in the argument.
Why not? If what those men said was true, then my dad is probably being held against his will! That imposter could possibly be the one who started the war and is keeping it from stopping. My dad is a genius; its very unlikely that after they hired him eight years ago that he couldnt come up with a strategy that would have solved this whole war problem Kate pleaded helplessly.
Suan stared at her for a moment then shook his head.
Fine you leave me no choice then, she scowled unsheathing her sword and standing in an offens

Dad! Matthews glanced down at the dock to see who had been shouting out. Right at the edge of the dock stood a girl dressed in boys cloths with brownish red hair floating in the wind around her face. For some reason he felt a sudden connection with the girl. She seemed too familiar to him; the stance, the voice, even her physical appearance made his head spin.
Something the matter Matthews? asked a burly voice.
Huh? Oh nothing really he replied.
Whats on your mind?
Oh I just thought I saw a ghost haunting me from my past. It was some girl and she looked just like my late wife .how long are we going to keep up this charade? We all know this war is alive because of us. Stop feeding these lies to the good people of Zephyr. Matthews said in a harsh tone, provoking the man parallel to him.
The man gave an angry glance towards Matthews.
I suggest you learn your place Matthews;
