Michael stared at the scene before him with wide eyes. For the first time since this evening it occurred to him that he might just be in the home of some witch and worst still that they existed. Adrian didn't look shocked at all and it hit him that he really didn't know his brother like he claimed.

"I see her." He repeated with a pained whisper. The flames in the room started to spark up and go higher. The six point star underneath them glowed slightly burning their feet. Michael shuddered.

What the hell is going on here! He wanted to say but he found that he could not speak. His eyes remained on Elijah fixated. He felt like he was outside his body watching the happenings of the things in the room through the eyes of a third person.

"Noah!" Elijah suddenly screamed. He gasped and let go of Michael. Michael gasped moving away from him and outside the star. He supported his left hand with his right and looked up at Elijah.

"There is a problem." Elijah whispered harshly, opening his eyes. "Werewolves. She's with thewolves." He breathed in deeply. "She's in danger but we cannot save her. I feel her presence strongly but there is another within her, the alpha's."

"Werewolves? Alright I'm out of here. This just turned into a circus. Unbelievable." Michael chuckled bitterly. He couldn't believe that he had come all the way here for nothing. They were definitely playing with his mind.

"We need to get her out of there but we need help and now." Elijah said ignoring Michael. "You best start believing that this is real if you want to save your woman. Looks like your woman is in deep shit." Elijah said. He moved away from the star lost in thought. He started to contemplate on what exactly he was going to do to save Gloria.

He wasn't strong enough to go against the werewolves, Noah would tear him up. There was only one person he could ask for help. The mother of all witches. He knew he could trust her with this because if there was anything Jessica wanted most it was for witches to be the only supernatural in ocean city. She wanted the city and Noah could not lay a finger on her.

Elijah took a hold of Adrian's hands and started to chant a few spells his eyes tightly shut. "Are you coming with us." He asked challenging Michael.

Michael grunted frustrated and took his hand.

After a few seconds they appeared in front of a secluded mansion. It was just like the usual wealthy people houses in ocean city only it was in the middle of no where.

The three of them stood watching the mansion in sight. Michael could no longer question Elijah, he could only now go with the flow.

"So who's going to knock?" Elijah asked breaking the overdue silence that enveloped them. The weather was so cold they shuddered wrapping their coats around them. Michael looked at his brother at his left and Adrian shrugged, a way of saying hell no don't look at me. He gaped at him for a second shaking his head, then he turned to his left where Elijah stood shaking. The cold affected him more than it did the rest.

"You know if I was going to knock I would have already." Elijah shrugged, gaping back at him. Michael looked to the house and then back at Elijah. He had come this far and there was no way he was going to go back without any result. He noticed Elijah's shaky hands and his brows furrowed. Raising up his head he looked into his eyes,

"You are scared of her?" It was more of a statement than a question.

"Hell yes I am. She's the warlord. The first of her kind."

"Then why did you bring us here if you knew that you were scared of her are you out of your mind." Adrian cut in. He moved over to stand in front of Elijah his hands in his coat pocket in a weak attempt to warm them.

"I was just about to ask the same question but he sure as hell is out of his mind." Michael added in frustration. He kicked a stone in anger sending it flying straight up.

"I'm not the one who went to a witch to find his lost lover so before you come judging me why not look at yourself in the mirror first." Elijah hissed. Michael was already on an edge and Adrian could notice it. He moved in between them because he sure as hell didn't need a fight.

"The last thing we need now is a fight. If she's as powerful as you say she is, then she already knows we are here. I think it will be better if knock rather than leave." As if on cue they heard a click sound and the three of them immediately looked to the house. The door was now open. "You see."

"Well let's go. We are already here after all." Michael agreed staring at the now opened the door.

"I don't think that's a good idea. The fact that someone opens the door for you doesn't mean that they are Inviting you to their home." Elijah objected.

"So what do you want us to do then. Stay out here and freeze to death or go back and gain nothing and risk being killed on the way?"

"I don't know."

"You better start knowing because you were the one who brought us here in the first place and if I can remember we are here because Gloria is somehow in trouble with the wolves." Michael huffed.

He still couldn't believe he was actually saying the wolves like it was really a thing. Everything That was happening was no short of crazy but since they were for his woman as Elijah liked to say he didn't mind.

"Look I say we go in, there is no way I'm going to leave here without knowing where Gloria is." Michael stated. He didn't wait for their replies, he was already tired of waiting. He was going to go with or without them after all Gloria was his not theirs. He waltzed to the door not caring if they were following or not.

"Well we are already here and she's aware. I don't think that we can go back now." Elijah said to Adrian swallowing. He was scared but he couldn't turn back now. He knew that Jessica had already seen him and there was no escaping her.

You should have thought about how ruthless she was before rushing to get help from her Elijah. A voice in Elijah's head scolded him.
