Ghosts from the pastChapter 13. Back Home
The last two weeks of Raina's stay passed by quickly. In what felt like mere seconds to Raina flashed and were gone.
A reception had already gone underway in the grand salon, a reception for Raina, to say farewell and pray that she had arrived back in America safe and sound. Her dress was a stunning midnight blue, matching her flashing blue eyes. Her hair was swept up into a bun, little strands hung down around her neck and great diamond earrings glittered. She sat upon a plush velvet chair next to Kahn. She looked over at him and smiled, "You know Kahn. I'm sorry about getting lost when you took me out hunting. It wasn't intentional".
Kahn looked at her and for a moment Raina feared that he wouldn't accept her apology but to her immense relief he smiled, "Its ok. I'm glad your ok. The last thing I wanted was Lady Amelia storming over, furious cause we got you killed".
"I'm not telling anyone what happened. They don't need to know".
Kahn smirked and nodded, checking his watch, "That's probably a good idea. Your train arrives in twenty minutes so we'd better head off".
"Shit. I don't really want to leave now".
"If you ever come back we can go hunting again".
"I don't think so," Raina drawled sarcastically.
Kahn laughed as the two got to their feet. An instant hush fell over the room and the Death Dealers seated around the room stood up. Kraven slunk forward in an expensive black suit, "I hope you had an enjoyable stay Lady Raina".
"Thank you Lord Kraven. It was very enjoyable. I'll never forget it".
Kraven beamed and escorted Raina from the salon, then stood aside so the Death Dealers could pass. Raina slid into a waiting limo and laid her head against the window. Kahn poked his head in and Raina glanced at him in surprise. "You'll be riding with Selene. She's requested to speak to speak to you alone".
Raina nodded as Selene slid in on the opposite row of seats. Kahn shut the door and the limo raced away from the mansion. "I'm not going to tell anyone at home about you Selene. They all think my family is dead and that's the way it's staying. I don't want too many questions being fired my way by them".
Selene smiled faintly, "Part of me wishes you could stay".
"I wish I could stay. I don't want to leave but ... my loyalty is to Amelia so I must return to her coven; my home and I'd miss Diana. She's been my friend ever since I was a child, but I'll still miss you".
"I'm really going to miss you. At least I know your alive and your ok".
Raina smiled at her, "I'll try to come back. Maybe for: Markus's awakening".
"I'd like that. Maybe you'd be better at hunting here then".
Raina laughed and sighed. The two vampires sat for the rest of the trip in silence. When the limo pulled up at the train station they climbed out. As the other limos pulled up and Kahn and the rest of the Death Dealers got out, the large black train Raina arrived on pulled up.
Raina sighed sadly and waited for the signal. A red laser point shone through the window and Raina smiled, although sadly. She headed towards the train as two Death Dealers opened the door. Raina turned back and waved, "Thank you Kahn, thank you everyone. It was a pleasure to be in your company". With that she vanished into the train. A whistle blew and the train slowly chugged away.
Selene smiled sadly, Goodbye Raina my little niece she thought. She turned with the others and slipped into the limo she'd just been in with Raina. She sat in the place her niece had just been and laid her head against the window. She sighed softly as Rigel, Nathaniel, Kahn and Jubilee slipped into the limo and it screeched back to the mansion.
XWashington, Amelia's coven America
Raina glanced up at the large white mansion, which she had called home for so long now. She walked up the stairs and headed for her room, not wanting to be distracted. Footsteps raced towards her and from behind, Raina was pulled into a hug. She whirled around and smiled and laughed when she saw Diana. She returned her friend's hug, "Diana! Oh I missed you!"
"How was Budapest? What did you do? Were there many hot men?"
Raina snorted and shook her head, "You'll never change Diana! I'll explain everything later, for now I just want to sleep".
Diana nodded, "You'd better not hold out a single detail," she yelled as she ran down the hall.
Raina grinned and entered her room. She closed the door and kicked off her heels. She dropped onto the bed, exhausted, I'll have to hold back some details she thought happily as she drifted off to sleep.
Raina was dreaming, a bitter sweet dream. She didn't know that miles away Selene was having the same dream. A great ocean separated their covens yet they both smiled as they dreamed.
They stood side by side in front of their house, tears filling their eyes as they observed the house that had once been their home. They walked up the front steps and opened the door. There on the top of the stairs stood their family: Joseph, Arabella, Cecilia, Gabriella and Eve. They smiled.
"Oh your home" Arabella sobbed.
Selene and Raina raced up the stairs and hugged their family. They knew that they were only dreaming and that eventually they would wake up but for now they enjoyed their dream.
Raina had been right. After finding one another, Selene and Raina were reunited with their family again. But dreams come to an end eventually. For now they embraced their family. They were finally reunited at last.
A great ocean separated Raina and Selene yet they smiled as they dreamt the same dream and bittersweet tears rolled down their faces.Fin
