Halo stood gawking at her mother. "What did you just say?" she asked blinking her eyes awkwardly. Her mother had just divulged something that made her lightheaded. Could it really be true? "We had to keep it a secret from you as our own parents did from us. It was for your own good." "You mean to say that I'm a wi...witch?" she asked rather alarmed. Her father walked over to her and placed his hands onto her shoulders. "We don't have much time for you to come to terms with it darling. Halo, we need to get you to the camp." "What camp? What are you guys talking about? Is this a joke for my birthday, because if it is, I'm not understanding it." Her mother sighed and rubbed at the tension knotting between her brows. "We will explain more on the way. Just go pack." Halo stared at them as if they'd gone mad but the seriousness of their expressions made her see this was no joke. "What should I pack?" she answered after a long pause. "Clothes. Leave all other possessions here. We need to get you to the camp before midnight. You will begin to access your powers then." "Powers?" "Just go." her father warned. As the vehicle sped through a wooded forest, Halo awoke from her hallucination filled slumber. She noticed they were driving in a place she had never seen before. Living in a rural town she hadn't really seen much forest around town. They were headed somewhere completely different. "Please explain this to me because I feel like I'm going to be sick." she said holding her tiny frame. "We are sorcerors darling." "Like witches?" she asked looking at them with disbelief. Her mother turned around and touched her forehead instantly flashing her with thoughts of what they meant. "As long as I touch anyone, I can communicate telepathically... along with other gifts. Your father has telekenesis. You ever wondered why when you were a child you could see stuff floating and we told you you were seeing things?" As if things were falling into place and making sense her other gave her a quick run down. "They will explain more to you at the camp. You and the others are being taken here to train. We are against an evil far greater than you will ever understand. We're doing this because we love you." "Others....there's more?" she whispered. Before her mother could answer her father and mother joined hands and chanted something. Out of nowhere a purple bright light sparkled and a gate appeared. As they passed the haze she turned to see the opened portal close, hiding their location to the world. It all was too much to handle at once but before she knew it she had been dropped off, hugged and left standing in the middle of a leaf covered road. There was a few buildings and the sounds of crows cawing filled the air. She turned around and saw a young guy with the same dumbfounded look on his face. He blinked his eyes and ran to her. "Please tell me you didn't just get told you were a damn witch and left here in the middle of nowhere?" he said panic in his eyes. Halo nearly toppled in laugher but he could tell it was out of nervousness. "I don't know what's going on but I'm officially freaked." "You and me both. I'm Halo Wesley." The boy held his hand out to shake hers. "Samuel Cyan... Sam's all right though. I guess we should see if we can find someone to shed some light huh?" Halo could tell he was a leader and nodded slightly before grabbing her duffel bag and following him down the vacant road not sure where they were going or what would happen.
