Alex shook her head, curling up. She hugged her knees, pressing her forehead against them. "No..nooo. G-go away." she whimpered, speaking to Liam. As soon as she finished speaking, the window exploded, the glass hovering in midair. She froze, her eyes going from blue to crystal white as three shadows slipped into the room. Everything stood still. The shadows didn't move, she didn't move, the glass just hovered. Alex...come back with us. Come on..we won't hurt you We just want to have fun.. They said to her. Her eyes returned to blue as she shuddered, the glass hitting the ground and snow swirling into the room. Alex felt freezing cold, and the snow didn't help. The symbol on the back of her hand glowed red and burned. She scooted back against the wall, afraid. Vane ran in, growling at the shadows, but as he tried to attack them, they seemed to disappear, only to reappear in the same place. Mya heard the window shatter. "I'll be right back Isaac..." she said, the overwhelming fear coming from her sister worrying her. She ran up the stairs and peeked in the room. She only saw a broken window, snow, Liam, Alex crying, and Vane. She must be sick. Mya sighed and went back to Isaac. "Everything's fine." she giggled and resumed helping him cook. Come on... play with us..the weather is perfect It won't be long You'll have to join us soon Alex whined, shaking her head. She couldn't form words, her entire being felt like it was being torn apart. She heard herself speak, but she never actually said anything. Don't make this hard.. Let's go! Come on..don't make us work for it Alex closed her mouth tight, her eyes closed, her head covered by her arms as she was reduced to a shaking pile of fear. She wouldn't do anything. Reality swirled in front of her and all she could see was Liam, who seemed to be moving in slow motion along with Vane, and three...infected. Her heart seemed to beat slower. The infected had clear eyes instead of red and their skin was completely gone, leaving only muscle and bone. They wore black cloaks. She screamed.. Vane tilted his head, now hiding behind Liam. He watched as Alex seemed to shake, but something seemed off. It wasn't..normal..shaking. Her eyes stared forwards, not blinking, not moving. He whined again, trying to get her to stop, but she didn't.
