Beep, beep, beep. I lifted my head and glared at my alarm, it was Sunday for god sake’s!! I went to turned it off but when I touched it, electricity shot out of my fingers and into the alarm clock, it suddenly exploded. I screamed and fell off the bed, my blanket landed on top of my head. What the heck was that!!? I started breathing loudly and slowly looked up at my alarm. Smoke came out of it and it looked like it was struck by lightning, it was totally cooked. I sat up and looked down at my hands curiously. How the heck did I do that?
I stood up carefully; my legs were shaking very badly thanks to my exploding alarm, and ran to the bathroom with difficulty. Something was wrong, I felt different somehow. I looked in the mirror and gave a louder scream. My hair!!! My beautiful hair! Where are my blond highlights? Those things cost a lot of money, my hair was not a brown with blond highlights anymore, but a brownish black, slightly curly at the ends and it was much longer, the tips touched my butt slightly, it was beautiful and it looked hot on me. When I stopped examining my hair I looked up again and let out a shriek. My eyes!!!! They were not blue anymore; it was kind of a purple, pink indigo color. I was a freak!!!!!! I untied my robe with shaking hands and let it drop. My body!! It was very hot, much hotter than before with new more beautiful curves and my skin was kind of golden color, not a pale white anymore. Suddenly, my back started burning and I hissed in pain. What’s happening to me? It felt like someone was burning me with fire.
The pain stopped and I turned my back to the mirror to see what had just happened. I gasped as I stared at my back; I have never ever seen anything like this before. I unhooked my bra and looked more closely. There was a tattoo on my left shoulder blade. It was a black rose, with drops of blood dripping out of the green black leaves, and there was writing on the left side of it, it was a weird writing, it looked like Chinese writing a little bit, but it wasn’t. And the weirdest thing was that the writing and the tattoo were glowing slightly. I have seen this rose before…it was the same rose from my dream, the rose that was behind that guy’s cloak, the black one. This is the same black rose that was in my dream!!!
What is happening to me?! I have never felt so scared in my life. Maybe someone it’s just playing a joke on me or something and it is NOT funny. I opened my drawer and took out a tooth brush, I didn’t care if it was new or anything, I just wanted this tattoo out of my back NOW!! I scraped hard on the drawing, but it didn’t do anything, the tattoo just kept glowing much brighter. I could see blood coming too, but it wasn’t red like humans were supposed to have it, but black!!!! As black as the night!!! I wiped the blood off and ran to my closet. I slipped some random clothes on, and started down the stairs when I heard a voice behind me.
“Aphrodite?” I stopped in my tracks and looked behind me. There was a beautiful woman with long blond hair and pink eyes. How the hell did she get into my house?! What is going on?!! “Aphrodite, my darling, it’s so good to see you again” the woman spoke in an angelic voice, in a voice so sweet and beautiful that I actually relaxed for once.
“Excuse me, but who are—” I stopped dead when I heard my voice. My voice was…different. So soft and…beautiful. It was so soothing, angelic, musical and so… weird. I looked at myself on the mirror that hung in the hallway’s wall and realized that my voice wasn’t the only thing that was beautiful, but myself as well. I was gorgeous and that frightened me. I looked like a goddess, with that long hair and the weird eyes. Something was happening to me and I didn’t know what. This wasn’t a dream; this was real life, because if it was a dream I would have awakened already. I ran down the stairs and into the kitchen. I have to stop this before it gets too far and before I go crazy. I opened a drawer, took a scissors out, and cut a long piece of my hair, and the weirdest thing happened…it grew back!!! My hair grew back in just seconds! I glared at the woman that stood on my kitchen doorway. “What is wrong with me!!?” I shouted, scared to death.
“It’s alright, Aphrodite—”
“My name is not Aphrodite, it’s Amy” I scowled.
“Ah, but it is Aphrodite, you see, you are a witch, you are Aphrodite, the youngest daughter of Hector” I stared at her like she was crazy.
“I am who?” I asked, not sure if I heard right. That name sounded familiar. Where have I heard it before?
“Your real parents were killed after you were born. We have been searching for you for so long now. Now that we have finally found you, you must come with us,” she smiled.
“Wait, wait, wait! My parents are in a business trip, right?” I wasn’t sure of anything anymore.
“Those people that you call your parents aren’t your real parents, you were adopted” she smiled gently.
“Yes, I know I am adopted, I found out yesterday” I rolled my eyes.
“Your mother sent you away before she was killed. I am pretty sure you know all this, you had a dream I suppose, you had a about both your parents on your 18th birthday, am I correct?” I nodded mutely. How the hell did she knew that? And those people in my dream were my real parents? “Every witch discovers her powers 2 days after her 18th birthday and now that you have, you have to come with me for some training. You won’t be seeing your family or friends ever again now that your change is completed, Aphrodite” she stated. “And I suppose you have the necklace as well?” she looked at me with knowing eyes. I took the necklace out of my pocket and she nodded.
I stared at her for a couple of seconds then started towards the front door. This is all insane; I have to get out of here before I go completely insane!!! I don’t understand anything that’s happening.
“Where are you going?” she asked as she followed me to the door.
“I just need some time alone right now, that’s all” I was about to open the door when she caught my hand.
“I’m sorry, but I cannot let you go now that we have discovered you, Aphrodite, we have to leave, now” she raised her other hand and something black starting coming out of her palm. The black liquid was sticking to my skin and was starting to cover my whole arm slowly.
“Hey, what are you doing!!? Get off!!” I screamed as the black liquid kept growing and was covering my chest. It started going up my neck and I screamed louder, until it finally covered my mouth and silenced me. I couldn’t move. I heard a knock on me front door and Troy’s voice. Oh god! I reached for the knob and just when I was about to touch it the black liquid covered my eyes and my whole body. Oh god, please help me! I was trapped!! I need someone to help me!!
Everything was dark inside, everything was lost; I had a feeling that I was never going to see Javid again, or any of my family and friends. I was going to be taken away in a world that I never knew existed, a world full of…witches and wizards, where everybody is powerful. And I will learn secrets of my past, of my real family, where danger will strike me everywhere; no matter where I hid. But the worst thing of all is that I will never see Javid again, my Dark Love.
