”Amethyst!” My mom called from down stairs.
“Coming!” I yelled. I sat up and flipped my pillow so my mom won’t ask why it’s wet from tears. I went down stairs and sat at the table and started eating my toast and eggs.
“Are you going to tell me why you let dad carry me to the forest so I couldn’t age?” I asked.
“You know that the forest-“She cut off her sentence and said. “What forest?”
“You know something mom.” I said looking into her eyes.
“Why did you let dad bring me there, why did I still age?”
“I guess I can’t hide it from you anymore…..”
“You can’t hide anything, I know Jason knows too.”
“It was a long time ago…” She said.
“Tell me, why did dad bring me there?” I asked.
“Your father didn’t want to take care of you anymore, so he put you in the forest and hoped you would never wake up…”
“Please tell me more.” I whispered.
“But he didn’t know that you had a hidden power, you woke up and left before the ageing was complete…” I looked at her. Hidden power…Ageing…Complete?
“Before I gave you some soup that made you pass out, you came back a few years later and Jason was older than you. He made sure
That you would think the forest was all a dream.”
“Jason knew the whole time….I always wondered why an eight year old was playing with a six year old.” I said.
“Then I missed my little girl I wanted you to be older, so I made you use your hidden power. That made you four-teen.” She said.
“How did you know I had a hidden power?” I asked.
“When your dad was at work you got mad at me when you were two. Then you used it on me…”
“I’m sorry mom.” I said.
“C-Can I ask you about Joshua? And why dad loved him more than me?”
“W-Who’s Joshua?” My mom asked.
“Uhhh…No one I have to get to school!” I said quickly leaving. As I flew to school I couldn’t stop thinking about the people I killed….Jake…Lamasa….James…Kendra….I don’t think I killed Kendra but I broke her heart… And then I crashed into someone.
“Owwww….Sorry.” I said standing up. Who did I crash into? I looked around and I was in school!
“Amethyst?” Kuniko said.
“Oh I’m sorry; I have to get to my class!” I said quickly leaving. As I walked down the school halls I saw people happy and laughing. They Looked at me weirdly when I walked by, no one but Kuniko and Jason know what I’ve been through. Everyone looked at me and then they knew I was part of the Lamasa family so they turned their heads away. I walked down the hallway and saw when I first met Jake. I held into my tears and walked to class. Jake…Why? Karuson…Why did I even care about him? I sat down and listened to Alex.
“Look at her wings she didn’t even shine them. She’s even sitting on books to make her self look older.” Brook whispered.
“Ewwww…Why does she have bandages all over her wings?” Rachel asked.
“To make the Lamasa family laugh, she thinks she’ll become a princess and live happily ever after but this is the real world!” Ashley said. I ignore them; there comments are not as mean as before now that I figured out about Jason, my hidden power, and the forest I have to do something….I have to do this for Jason! I stood up and faced them.
“I’m tired of you guys picking on people!” I yelled.
“A Lamasa thinks she can hurt us?!” Ashley asked.
“Yes, with my hidden power I can beat you guys!”
“Lamasa! Sit down!” Alex yelled.
“We’ll fight after school.”
“Deal.” I said shaking her hand. It was time to finish this. I walked to the back of the school. They were all waiting.
“Are you ready?” I asked.
“Yes.” Ashley said.
“Ready? FIGHT!” Rick yelled. Ashley started with a jump and then wind was everywhere. I jumped over it and used a wind wave.
“My hair!!!” She yelled.
“Do you need my help?” Her boyfriend asked.
“No I can do this.” I jumped and flipped and came behind her and pushed her onto the floor.
“No fair, no fair!” Brook and Rachel came running and I jumped in the air and they both went flying. I landed.
“Ugh, I can’t believe a Lamasa won!” Brook yelled.
“See I told you a Lamasa could win.” I said.
“Ugh whatever!” They all yelled and then they left. I smiled as they left.
“They shouldn’t bother you anymore.” Kuniko’s voice said from behind me.
“Why did you come out here?” I asked.
“How much do you know?”
“What do you mean?” I asked.
“How much information did Karuson give you?”
“All of it, anyway do you know who Joshua is?”
“All of it….”Kuniko whispered.
“Yeah, I’m pretty sure you knew.”
“Oh that’s ok, bye.” She said quickly and then she left. After school I was going to the library and then I heard someone….
“Who’s there!?” No one came out I just walked and then I felt a hand! It went around my mouth and then I saw a knife in the person’s hand! The stabbed me in the back and then they said.
“I’m sorry Amethyst, Karuson give you too much information…Now you must die.”
“K-Kuniko?” I barely said.
“Yes, you are going to change the Lamasa name if you live any longer.”
“But…I just wanted to change….” I said. Kuniko took the knife out and ran away. I fell to the floor.
“I will change the Lamasa name….And I will help Jason!” I cried. I stood up. I flew home and went inside my room without my mom seeing me. I took a bandage and put it on. Now I had bandages on
my shoulder, back, and wings. I went down stairs hoping my mom would tell me about Joshua.
“Mom, can we talk?” I asked.
“Ok dear.” She said. I think she knew what I was going to talk about.
“Mom, who’s Joshua?” I asked looking into her green eyes.
“I guess secrets always come out…..”
“Please tell me.”
“I’m only telling you because I love you.”
“Please and if you wan to you can tell me why a prince like Jason was friends with a peasant like me.”
“Well this all started when I was twenty-six.”
“Two of them, and there both twins.” I said happily.
“I can’t believe we had a girl!” My husband yelled.
“What’s so wrong about it? We have a boy and a girl.”
“You know what? Why don’ you give your girl the Lamasa name?”
“Why!?” I yelled.
“Because, everyone knows that our family name have never had a Girl who lived through birth!”
“But that’s because she’s different.” I said.
“What’s so different about her!?”
“Well one, she lived through birth, and two she has a hidden power.”
“How can you tell!?” My husband yelled.
“It’s because I could tell as soon as she-“
“Don’t say that!” He yelled. Whacking me across the face.
“Our boy Jason has the hidden power!”
“Ugh, we’ve had them for two years already and you keep saying the same thing!” I yelled.
“Ugh! Go away I never want to see you again!” He yelled.
“Fine!” I yelled grabbing Amethyst.”
“Mom, are you saying me and Jason are…Brother and sister!?”
“Then, who’s Joshua?” I asked.
“Joshua was me and your other father’s kid. After the king kicked me out me and your father met.”
“This is so weird…”
“Why did dad, let me and Jason hang out still?”
“Jason was begging his dad so his, your dad told him just pretend you’re friends. Not brother and sister.”
“This is so weird….”
“I’m sorry I never told you before.”
“It’s ok, but what happened to Joshua?”
“He died of Cancer….”
“Why did I never see him before?” I asked.
“Because everyday when you would wake up your father would take him for a walk, and then your father was getting tired of all of that so he brought you to the forest….”
“But I broke out and at that time Joshua must have died.” I said.
“Thank you for telling me this mom.” I said and then I went into my room. “Kuniko knows that I know too much…So…I have to run away…” I whispered. I packed everything and then flew out the window. I already left mom a note.
About 2 chapters left until the end.
