    Chapter 19.1

    Tristan blinked awake when he realized someone was in the room with him. Casting his magic out he frowned when he got a familiar feeling from the person but couldn’t place them. “Who’s there?” A face appeared over the edge of his bed and he let out a very manly squeak. “Fran, what are you doing in my room? You almost gave me a heart attack.” Tristan stopped talking when he saw her eyes in the dim moonlight filtering through the lone window. “The time is near for magic to fight magic. “Mind will fight mind “And life as it is known is at risk “Protect and follow the innocent mind” “Shit!” Tristan leaped from the bed in time to catch Fran as she fainted. He tucked her into his bed and after making sure there wasn’t anything she could hurt herself on in the room he headed out to find help. It wasn’t long before he started hearing voices calling out frantically. “Kitryn, Simon,” Tristan yelled. “She’s this way.” Within seconds Simon appeared in front of him, closely followed by Carl, then Kitryn and Patrick. Kitryn grabbed him by the front of his t-shirt. “Where is she?” Tristan sent a jolt of magic through Kitryn’s hands to make him let go. “She’s asleep in my bed. She came to my room, had a vision and fainted. Now you can either stand here and question me or you can go and get her. When she’s awake I’d love to find out how she got through my locked door and wards.” Kitryn shook his hands, probably from the magical jolt and nodded looking suitable cowed. *** A few hours later and everyone was gathered in the main meeting room. Meg had stayed with Fran and had promised to bring her to the meeting when she’d woken up and had food to regain her energy. Tristan repeated the words Fran had said and Carl wrote them down. They then got down to the business of deciphering what they could mean. “Well, I think it’s obvious,” Patrick stated. “It means those with mind magic will fight each other. And we need to protect Fran. She has to be the innocent mentioned.” Tristan pinched the bridge of his nose. How could the elder be so old and have so many mage friends and yet remember none of what he was taught by them? He swallowed a sigh and told himself to have patience. “Pat, come on, you know magic doesn’t work like that. Besides, what do you define as mind magic? Seer’s have mind magic, but not all seers are mages. Healers have mind magic, they use it to calm their patients. I have mind magic, I can conjure images that I can then let other people see. Shifters use a basic form of mind magic when they true-mate to create a bond between them and their mates. Need I go on?” Patrick waved a hand. “Okay, so I may have generalized too much. You and Milly are too alike, you know that?” Tristan grinned. “Well, if you listened when we told you things, we wouldn’t have to repeat ourselves.” A knock on the door forestalled any more conversation. Fran entered towing Meg along by one hand and holding a half-eaten sandwich in the other. Now the discussion could begin in earnest.

    I too am liking Tristan, thank you I too am glad Fran's visitor was who she thought it was. Of course, her power should warn her of any dangerous individuals - be they spirit or solid - but that being said, many seers have been taken so there must be a way around the power warning. I'm glad you like Fran. I think we're going to be seeing more of her now. glad you're enjoying things No one can tell a person off better than a parent (even if that parent is actually their sibling). There's something in the tone a parent uses. Yep, they're listening. I'm sure if he forgets, Fran or Jenny can remind him This is the same Kit we're talking about, right? He can be a stubborn cat. But, I'm sure Trissy will push him along with Simon's help if needed. Yep, it's like something parents learn in some sort of training school. How to turn their child's full name into something to be feared. Yes, it is, thanks Pupilull Thanks, LadyDe, yes I think Tristan is going to be the gust of wind this group needs. Thank you, everyone, for reading, reacting, and commenting, it means a lot.

    Chapter 18.5

    Jenny looked down at her daughter, and Tristan could see tears glinting on her cheeks. “I really don’t know a lot. The seers are all too badly drained to tell me much. I know Cheryl is using their powers to see what’s happening with her enemies, and that she has something planned that will be happening soon. I also know she has a mage working for her, but not willingly. I was ordered to treat a young female mage. Her name was Milly, she was very pregnant and the trauma of being taken brought on her labor. She had a baby boy and she named him Michael. She said that was the name of her mate and then she told me she didn’t expect for them to make it out alive and made me promise to protect the baby and the toddler who’d been taken with them. She wouldn’t calm down until I promised, and the baby was left with me when guards came to take her away again. No matter how much she cried and begged they wouldn’t allow to even give him a cuddle goodbye. The last thing she called out was for me to remember my promise. “The baby and toddler, whose name is Ophelia, have been set up in the room next door to mine. They are both calm and sleeping alright at the moment, but Ophelia keeps looking for her mother. She may not be able to talk much yet, but anyone can understand ‘mama’ and then a child searching around. I don’t know how much longer it will be before she starts to realize something is wrong. Children are more perceptive than an adult will admit.” This was said with a glare at Kitryn who hung his head and cast a pout through his eyelashes at Simon. Simon just chuckled and pushed him off the couch they were sitting on. This seemed to break the cloud that had settled over the group and everyone chuckled. Jenny stopped and seemed to be listening to something. “Duty calls, the baby is awake. I’ll come when I can and Kitryn, remember to listen to Fran. A child she maybe but her powers are growing fast and she will soon surpass any seer I’ve met in my lifetime.” The glow surrounding her intensified and when everyone had lowered the hands they’d used to block their eyes Fran was sleeping alone on her bed. Simon ushered everyone out while Kitryn tucked Fran safely into her bed. They all made their way silently back to the main room that had become their regular meeting room now. “What now?” Simon asked when no one spoke. Tristan looked at Patrick and at his nod spoke, “Patrick and I know Michael and Milly. I went to school with Michael and I stood for him when he had his mating ceremony with Milly. Patrick told me Michael was the mage who set wards around the compound.” “But you said there weren’t any wards around the compound,” Simon pointed out. “I know. Patrick and I had just decided Cheryl must have Michael and have a way of making him do what she wants. Fran’s mother confirmed that and told us how he is being controlled. He’s obviously taken down the wards, but the wards surrounding Fran’s room and how they’re keyed to work are the strongest I have ever seen. I don’t know how he knew she was here or how to find her, but nothing can get to Fran in that room and there are extra wards to increase the strength of her gift. Essentially that room is the safest place on the compound for anyone we want to keep hidden from Cheryl. As soon as I have rested I will restore the wards around the compound and add a few modifications so Michael can’t be forced to break them. But, at this moment I am afraid I need to head for bed. Patrick, I take it I have my usual room?” At Patrick’s nod, Tristan headed out the room throwing a “Goodnight all,” over his shoulder.

    Yes, she is. I think she is even more powerful than the adults around her realize, but we'll have to wait and find out. Thank you, Gary, for reading and commenting

    I would hope that any guardian would be protective of a child under their protection, i know this isn't always what happens, but i like to think it is the norm. Thank you, Gary, for reading and commenting

    Thanks, Gary. And, yes, I'm sure kids have a radar to make sure their parents have no time alone once they're born until they move out of home. Thank you for reading and commenting

    Chapter 18.4

    Patrick and Tristan rounded the hallway corner just in time for Tristan to have the wind knocked out of him by a blur of pink. More people ran up as Tristan tried to catch his breath and hold on to the now wriggling pink lump in his arms. Playing a hunch, he gasped out, “Fran, I presume.” The wiggling stopped and a far too intelligent gaze captured his. He got lost in that gaze for a few moments before yelling got his attention. “Fran, what have you been told about running in the hallways. You’re meant to be staying with your friends tonight.” “But, Kitty, I wanted to meet Trissy.” Tristan ignored the shocked gasps and the chuckling that he was sure he could hear coming from a certain vampire. Instead, he concentrated on Fran. “I’m Tristan. But I’m sure you knew that already. Why did you have to meet me so urgently?” “You ‘posed to help me see mom again.” Before he could answer Kitryn interrupted. “Fran, we had this conversation. Your mom is dead. She was killed by the bad people. She’s gone to another place now.” Tristan shook his head. Fran wasn’t a baby or even a toddler. She was at least six if not older. He couldn’t understand why some adults not only treated children like they were stupid but used silly terms like, gone to another place, and bad people. Why not just say the person is dead and gone? And why call the ‘bad people’ exactly what they were? Evil, manipulative, B— “She is not gone!” Fran’s shout echoed in the small hallway. “She was here. She taught me to find Bad Lady. ‘fore Conny helped me. She showing me power. You no want me to know.” Kitryn sputtered. “It’s not that I don’t want you to know about your power. You’re a child, you should be playing games, not looking for or helping to fight bad people.” “Bad people want me. I fight them. I help. Help mage and Fae. You no stop me.” The more upset she got the more her speech garbled, but Tristan got the idea. “Fran, do you mind if I see your room? If I can sense your mom from her visit, I can set Kitty’s mind at rest.” He ignored the growl at the name he used and kept a smile on his face for Fran as she nodded enthusiastically. He stood straight and set Fran on her feet. He let her take his hand to lead the way. He ignored everyone else as they trailed behind them. Fran may be a child but she was a seer too. Her power would protect her. That was what made the missing seers such a mystery. He still couldn’t work out how this Cheryl was getting the seers and not leaving any trace. “My room,” Fran announced proudly and pushed open the door. An immediate feeling of peace surrounded him. “No evil has been here.” He stated and moved further into the room. He went to one knee in front of Fran. “Can you please think of your visitor and try and call to her? If she is nearby she may come and set everyone’s mind at rest.” Fran nodded and frowned in concentration. A glow appeared beside Fran and slowly grew until it took the shape of a woman. “Fran, what’s wrong, darling? Why did you call me?” Fran let out a low cry. “Kitty say you dead and gone away. He say I didn’t see you. He see you now.” The glowing woman spun to glare at a sheet white Kitryn. “Kitryn Franklan Hermarn Gerald Jackier.” Tristan winced as Kitryn paled further. Everyone knew you were in trouble when a woman used your full name in that tone. “How could you tell your niece that? You know the basics of a seer’s power. I would have shown myself to you if I could, but I seemed to only be able to appear to Fran and only in this room. I know I asked her to keep quiet until I could get things figured out, but I didn’t expect you to react like this. But I see you have a mage here. If you can get him to boost Fran’s power I can stay and explain a bit better.” Tristan snapped out of his shock and nodded. He sent a burst of power into Fran and felt it funnel out. The woman solidified and the glowed dimmed but didn’t disappear. He also sent out feelers of magic into the room. He found wards of protection, and wards to boost power, and wards to aid focus. There was more but those were the most powerful ones. “So, you had better let me explain what’s happened so far and you can fill in what you know. I don’t know how long I have so listen carefully, I will say this only once. “I was injured in the attack on our home and I felt it when my mate was killed. However, by then I had already been caught by a mage. She’d surrounded me with some sort of shield, it stopped the breaking of the mating bond from killing me. They took me with them when they left. Before you ask, I can’t tell you where Cheryl is. I was knocked out. I’m kept in a three-story building with no windows for me look out of and get any idea of my location. I am forced to use my small healing abilities to try and keep multiple seers alive. You don’t know how happy I was when I felt Fran’s power rising and realized I could link with her. The night is the only time I’m left alone unless there’s an emergency. I’ve been trying to find out what I could and pass it on to Fran.” Fran had curled up as close to her mother as she could and had apparently fallen asleep.

    I'm sure Kit will try, but i think Tristan will get around him He strikes me as someone who always gets his own way. Of course, Carl may change that Thanks for reading and commenting
  12. Caz Pedroso

    Chapter 18.3

    That's because he's sensible and not too close to what's going on yet. I think that gives him an outsiders view and so he can see what the others either don't see, or refuse to see. I think he won't give them much choice. Now when he comes up against ~Kitryn about Fran, that will be interesting to see. Hopefully, you will only have to wait until next week. I am doing my best to not miss weeks unless it is unavoidable. Thank you, everyone, for continuing to read and comment.

    Chapter 18.2

    I hope we will get some answer finally too. In the next chapter, though? Hmmm, that might be a bit ambitious. Yep, questions, questions, questions, as far as the eye can see. I'm sure we'll start getting some answers soon though. The wards will be explained soon, that much i know and can tell you. As for Fran, the adults are another story. Hopefully, Tristan will be the sensible one to pull their heads out of their backsides and to show them they need to work together-with Fran too-to get to the bottom of whats going on. I think being Elders, Tristan and Carl will put duty first. and if for any reason they don't I'm sure the others will remind them...loudly. Thank you everyone for reading and commenting, it means a lot

    Chapter 18.1

    I agree with you. When I started this story, it was supposed to be short and sweet. It is currently standing at over thirty thousand words and at a guess is just over halfway through. We'll have to see where it takes us I'm glad, she is a great character to write. I'm waiting for the kits to ask an adult what the noise they keep hearing at night is I'm sure the mage will add something to the discussions, if nothing else he may add more questions I'm sure they'll have a shower after breakfast, and before leaving their suite. I think most shifters understand. If they're mated they remember what it was like, and if they're single they're just wishing it was them making the noise with their own mate. Thank you all for reading and commenting, it means a lot to read all your views and comments. :

    Chapter 17.3

    Yep, more questions but very few answers at the moment. I do like to add mystery, but in the case of this story, I think I will be glad when some of the characters start finding some answers. We'll just have to watch and find out together I'm hoping someone will find the one answer soon that will start unraveling all the mysteries at once. They may do, but I think the adults mind automatically went to the worst case scenario due to everything else going on at the moment. I think these adults are going to be due a huge shake up very soon. They think that because Fran is a child and untrained she needs to be sheltered. They need to change their thought patterns soon, before someone does it for them. I'll add another one for you. OR Jenny isn't dead and she is projecting to her daughter Thank you for reading nad commenting, and I'm sorry it took me so long to reply.
