#1 aurora borealis Part 1: “Moving Forward”

Time: Day
Mood: Lame
Location: Alaska

I watched them as they flew away. The “Dark Sisterhood”, that’s what they were referred to in my research and that’s what I decided to call them.

We would have surely died if Mei Lien had not intervened. She turns to us when the coast was clear and gives us a weary smile right before she collapses and passes out. Her body lacking that vibrant and exuberant glow from earlier. I too wanted to pass out. I stumble down to my knees and hang on to dear life. Who would save us if I did? Who was left? I could no longer sense Genevieve. Either she was killed in action or got to Rachel and fled. I was hoping for the latter… could she have ascended like me?

In the end, it was two regular imbued hunters that saves us, Makena and Duke. She fills me in on her side of the story with Genevieve and we get everyone to a safe place. Edward was a different story, he was in semi critical condition as he only has half a functioning body left. We took him to the nearest medical facility while Duke took Mei Lien back to where Genevieve and Rachel was.

“How are you holding up? Shouldn’t you be in the treatment room as well?” Makena inquires.
“I’m more than okay. I can already feel my body regenerating back to its supernatural state. That question is more for him.” I replied nodding my head towards Edward between a see through window and the treatment room. “Besides, I can hear his heartbeat just fine. It’s in no state of shock.”
“That’s amazing! What else do you hear?”
“I hear everything and it’s more than annoying like listening to static. But I’m starting to manage to filter things out.” I explained.
“And Keenan?”
“Finding his strength… the huma- regular people… will freak out if they discover that his wounds have already started healing. Looks like you have much to learn about this new kind of hunter.” I said making eye contact with her.
“I do. It’s the only way to get revenge for my dad.” she replied with watery eyes.

I took her words into heart and fully agreed that more people were going to suffer losses if I couldn’t match the Dark Sisterhood’s strength. But there is a ray of hope. There are others like me, and possibly my sisters as well. We will need all the help we can get.

Later that day I received word that Mommy & Daddy just landed at the airport along with other childhood friends, so I headed towards Genevieve and Rachel for a much needed shower and change of clothes.

“Aurora borealis, here we come!”
