Chapter Two

347 10 1

When I got to my senses, I didn't want to open my eyes until I took in some other surroundings. I felt really warm and cozy, like my body would be lying on a cloud. There was something cold and wet on my forehead that felt like cloth. I could hear movement near me, so I acted like I was still unconscious.

Then I heard the door open and I heard the two people talking.

"How is she doing?" said a female voice. She sounded as if she were an older woman.

"So far she's been the same." said a male voice that didn't sound old, but not young either, so he is probably in his twenties or thirties. "Nothing has changed. She seems to be recovering and I estimate she will be waking up soon."

Well I wanted to find out who these people were, so I opened my eyes to find a man that was kneeling beside me. I was right; he looked like he was in his late twenties or early thirties. He was wearing a dark blue shirt with a denim jacket and long denim pants. Close to him stood an elderly woman that was wearing a blue skirt and a white button-up blouse with glasses. The woman saw that I was awake and smiled.

"You were right about her waking up soon." She said and nodded her head towards me. Than man turned and looked at me, then he smiled.

"Hey there, I see your finally awake." He patted my head lightly.

I sat up, and then got a wave of dizziness that made me have to use my arm to support my body. I thought I would be recovered by now. Then again I don't know how long I have been out.

"Oh no you don't." said the man as he put a hand on my shoulder to lay me back down. I need to move around because my body is so stiff, but I didn't want to fight with him so I obeyed and lay back down. When I spoke my voice was a little hoarse.

"Where am I? What am I doing here?" I asked.

"Don't worry; you're at me and my mom's house. A boy saved you." He said. Who knew some humans could be so generous to someone like me. I looked down at myself to find myself dressed in a really big crème color shirt.

"We just finished washing your clothes. Sorry for the shirt, we don't have any clothes for a little girl as petite as you." Said the older woman with a warm smile still on her face.

"Thank you, but who saved me?" I asked. Just then, a boy, well he looked more like a man, came in the door. He was wearing a black t-shirt with denim pants that were ripped at the knees; he had dark brown hair and hazel eyes.

"This is David; he comes around every now and then. You should be thankful he was stopping for a visit and just happened to see you in the river." The man turned to David. "Do you mind watching her while me and Agatha go to the store?" the man asked David. David shook his head no.

The man got up and led Agatha out of the room, leaving me and David alone. It was awkward in a sort of way because he just stood by the door watching me with a blank stare on his face. I didn't know what to say because I don't know him or the man or Agatha.

"Um...Thanks for saving me." I said, hoping that will ease the tension in the room. He just nodded and kept on staring at me. By this point I was starting to get a little annoyed.

"What are you staring at? Is there something wrong with me?" I asked.

"No." he replied. Wow, I'm surprised I actually got him to talk. I sat up and stretched my arms, trying to get rid of the fatigue I was feeling.

"You need to lay down." He said. Oh my God, he said more than one word. That's a record. I ignored him then stood up carefully. This time there was no dizziness.

"I said lay down. Now." He said to me. That ticked me off because I hate it when people try to tell me what to do. Who was he to tell me what to do? He doesn't even know me.

"Your not the boss of me." I said. I looked around to find the room was a baby blue with a light green border. There was only one window that had light green curtains to match the border.

"I don't care I said lay down." He ordered again. I was so tempted to let this guy have a piece of me, but he is only human and it wouldn't be right. Trust me I really wanted to.

"Don't make me mad or your going to pay." I said. He smirked and shook his head slightly as if trying to taunt me.

"Is that right? I don't think you would want to make me mad either." He said while staring and smiling at me.

"I don't care if you get mad or not." My hands curled into fists at my sides. I could sense that there were a lot of trees outside. That means that I'm still in the forest. Let's see how he would like it if he was hanging upside down by tree branches.

I smiled then closed my eyes and focused on the trees outside. Then I listened as I heard the tree branches shoot into the house, breaking the windows. I didn't mean to break the windows, but what was weird was that I didn't hear a word out of him. No scream, no gasp of shock, no cuss words, no nothing. Now that was a let down.

I opened my eyes to see all of the tree branches on the ground and David standing there just like he was before I made the trees attack him. I stood there shocked. What happened? I know I made the trees come through the window towards David. Otherwise there wouldnt be broken glass on the floor and a gaping hole where the window once was. Why wasn't he hurt or at least hanging upside down like I wanted?

"I knew it." He said. What was he talking about? He knew it? Knew what?

"What are you talking about?" I asked. He let out a chuckle and looked at me with his arms folded over his chest. Alright this guy was starting to make me mad again. This time I will see what happened.

I kept my eyes opened this time and called the trees to me again. They shot through the broken window really fast, too fast for him to dodge them. Right when they were about to get him, a white barrier shot up and shielded him from the branches making them fall to the ground just like the ones before.

I couldn't believe my eyes. He stopped my branches from hurting him. There could only be one explanation for how he was able to do that. David is a white magic user just like me.
