She could feel it creeping up her ankle and legs. It was hardening, making it impossible for her to move. A laugh sounded as it went higher.
“Sorry Devin but things must be done. You must be taken out of the picture.”
“What did I do, Amber?!”
“You betrayed me! You left Sensai, you roubou BACK your Angel's light, and you risked everything for one human! That betrayal will never be forgiven!”
“Amber...I'm sorry. I never meant to hurt you but I had to save him! He was my brother!”
“You think apologizing will help?! No! It's time you payed the price!”
“What do you plan to do when I'm gone?”
“Infiltrate. Sensai taught us that. So I'll play pretend.”
“They'll never believe you! They know you Amber!”
The crystal was up to her neck now.
“Oh I know. That's why I'll look like you.”
“Oh yes. I told you everything was mine and would be!”
Amber touched the stolen colar on her neck.
Devin sat up, panting. She looked around and took a deep breath. She was safe. It took a few minutos to regain her composure.
“Oh that was horrible.”
Devin slipped out of cama and over to her cabinet of herbs and potions. She pulled out a mix of cinnamon and vanilla bean, heating up some water. She put the mix in, feeling relaxed por the scent. She sat on the couch, feet pulled up. She drank the soothing mixture, a full moon showing through her window. She heard a knocking sound and waited a few minutes.
It didn't sound again. Devin went to the door and opened it. The mug spilled from her hand, crashing over the floor. A crystallized rose sat in front of her door. A note was attached to it. Say goodbye to your little friends, my Crystal Angel. I'm coming for you.
