Chrissy POV:

Okay do I have everything? Phone? Check. Necklace? Check. High heels? Check. Bag? Check. Okay that's it, I think that's it, I hope that's it. Okay now to pick up my date. I got in my car and drove back to the Clearwater's house. I knocked on the door and Seth answered I smiled.

"You have your permit right?" I asked him

"Yeah do I need it?" He asked me back

"Yes you're driving, go get it." He ran back inside. He's lucky that I'm letting him drive my car. The only person who ever got to drive Drew was me. He ran back out and smiled. "Ready?"

"Ready." He got in the driver's side. I handed him the keys and he grabbed them smiling. He started it up and we were off. When we got there it was already full and when he went to get out I stopped him.

"Wait, okay so are you alright with pretending to be my, uh, my boyfriend?" He stopped

"Am I the first person you asked?" He asked me

"What?"

"Just answer the question, am I the first person you asked?"

"Yeah you are why?"

"Why'd you ask me?"

"What do you mean?" I frowned he looked at me

"It's no secret that there's something going on between you and Paul and Jared. So if I'm the choice between not choosing the other two in your love triangle than I need to know." He raised his voice.

"What? Love Triangle? Where did you hear that?" I asked him.

"Everybody knows about it! Someone saw you kiss Paul in the boys bathroom before his game and then Jared's mom said you once kissed him, and everyone can see it! The way you look at them the way they look at you!" My eyebrows raised as I listened to his rambling.

"Seth listen there is absolutely nothing going on between me and them. Sure we may have kissed but there's nothing going on!" I reassured him. Why I'm not sure there's just something about Seth that makes you want to make him happy. He sighed and nodded. "You ready?" I asked him.
"Why did you pick me?" He asked

"Why not?" I replied he just looked at me expectantly. I sighed. "Because your sweet, mature, funny, and such a gentleman." I told him I could see a small blush appear on his cheeks. He cleared his throat and got out of the car, coming over to my side and opening the door. I reached for his hand and he helped me out. I looped my arm through his and we walked inside.

"One more thing" he said I looked at him. "You look beautiful" I smiled

"Thanks you don't look too bad yourself. You look handsome." He blushed

"There you are!" I heard my dad's voice "what took you so long?"

"You know me always taking so long to get my hair done. I made Seth here wait a while." I told my dad he nodded

"Seth? As in Clearwater?" Tori asked I nodded.

"Yes, Seth this is Jack, Anne, Saul, and Eleanor Calder, everyone this is my date Seth Clearwater." I introduced. We got a table and ordered our food as we were waiting my dad and Eleanor's dad started talking about being lawyers. I thought they are supposed to keep quiet about their cases? And my dad says I get my disobedience from my mom, yet he blabs about important documents to his other lawyer friends. For all he knows he could be lawyering against him or whatever it's called that lawyers do. The food finally came and it was quiet which is weird because its never quiet during these dinner parties. I looked up from my food and saw everyone frozen. I furrowed my eyebrows and looked around. What the hell is going on? Why am I saying this in my head? "What the hell is going on?" I said

"Relax sweetheart, I'm here to talk to you."

"Mom?" I asked

"Yes" she came from behind the waitress.

"What's happening why did you freeze everyone?" She sat down next to me where Saul was sitting he had gone to the restroom.

"Your magic is coming in, you need to practice it and master it. So you could protect yourself and anyone else who needs protecting."

"What? Why couldn't you just tell me this when I got home?"

"Because I was just like you, stubborn you wouldn't have listened. I wish I did to my mom when my magic first came in. Here." She handed me a necklace. It had a crystal on it.

"What is it?"

"Amethyst, it's the family crystal, I have one too. It's known as the stone of fire." She explained taking off my current necklace and replacing it with the crystal. "Don't take it off, it'll protect you from evil, with this on you'll be untouchable to all evil. I've got to go, just practice and master your magic." And with that she was gone and everyone was unfrozen and digging into their food while talking loudly. I felt myself feeling lightheaded and every sound around me was fading out. Soon it felt like I was getting farther and farther from reality. Farther away from Seth, Eleanor, Paul, Sam, Jared, Emily, dad, and Tori. I could hear someone whispering my name but then it got louder and louder until I was fully aware of everything again.

"Are you okay?" Seth asked me. I was back, I looked at his worried face and then back to my food then up to see everyone staring at me, worried looks on each and everyone of their faces except two, Eleanor's parents. I nodded I couldn't answer my voice would crack or something. I realized that this is my reality.
