*Previously on the Blue Moon*
I was stunned and by the looks of it my new ‘friends’ were as well. I couldn’t take the information in.
The next thing I knew there was an explosion at the front doors.
CHAPTER 5: Danger
We were on our feet before you could say the word ‘danger’. And that’s the exact word that screamed at me in my mind. I looked at father. He was making his way towards me. Dominick and others were standing in front of me. Waiting for whatever was about to come. My father took my hand and looked at me in the eyes.
“Ann, you have to run. I think that you’ll be safe with Dominick and others. We can’t protect you anymore that they got through our shield. Take Cassie and Luke with you. I know they’ll be able to help. They all will protect you with their lives.” He had tears in the corners of his eyes. He looked at me with such love and sorrow. My heart almost broke.
What was he saying? Was he serious? I didn’t have any intention to live without him and mother. Well I didn’t have any intention to live at all. I wanted to fight to protect my people not the other way around.
“Father, I’m not leaving you here on your own. I am their princess and I will fight alongside them. I’m not going to run just to protect myself.” I said it with determination in my voice. I wasn’t moving from this spot until he let me fight.
He shook his head, “Annabelle, it’s not so easy. If something happens to you the whole kingdom and world will be at risk. I can’t let that happen. You have to go. Promise me you’ll stay safe.”
“Promise me!” he said it with authority in his voice but at the same time I could see him pleading with his eyes.
“I promise.” I whispered. Second time in my life I was promising to run away and stay safe to the people important to me. I couldn’t bear the thought of losing everyone. No. This is not happening. Please, I begged my goddess silently.
‘Be strong my child.’ I heard a soft whisper in my mind.
Tears rolled down my cheeks. Why? Why is this all happening to me?
I heard sounds of fighting just outside and my father gave me a quick hug. “I love you.” He whispered and walked towards the fighting.
Before I could do anything my mother hugged me. “Remember sweet heart, we’re always with you. We love you and your brothers more than anything.” She had tears streaming down her face, she turned around and just as fast disappeared through the doors.
I ran after them and felt strong hand go around my waist. Oh goddess I’m going to die, I thought. Then I heard Dominick’s voice.
“We have to go.”
“No.” with that I wrenched myself out of his grasp and ran, he grabbed me again, but not before I saw my mother and Sam going down.
“NO!” I shouted. This can’t be happening. No, not them. Mother… Sammy…
I felt numb my mind went blank. The only thing I thought was ‘not them’.
I could feel something inside me wanting to get out. I couldn’t hold it, I didn’t want to. I let it out. There was a burst of pure white light, just like when I was 8. This time though I didn’t faint.
After my eyes adjusted I could see the attacking vampires on the floor… turning to ashes. The only ones that didn’t were Dominick, Katarina, James and Trevor. Strange. I looked around, everyone’s head was turned towards me. Why? I thought. I didn’t wonder for long as I remembered. Mother. Sammy.
I called to them in my mind but the link to them was dead. My knees gave out. If it wasn’t for Dominick holding me I would have crumpled to the floor. I was shaking and crying. I couldn’t take it anymore. I gave in to the darkness. I loved how it instantly welcomed me.
