The Pandemonium Chapel could only be found by those who were permitted by those inside. The Chapel was much like a Castle in terms of appearance but much smaller. Or that was what people would assume when looking at it from outside.
It was once they got inside they would see how big it truly was. Inside was the size of a city. The sky above the chapel was dark and rain fell down like tear drops. Marcus walked through the mud towards the chapel, arms over his chest and his hood up over his head to protect his hair from the weather.
He made it to the doors and knocked three times and the doors opened automatically.
He entered, glad to be in the warmth. The inside the chapel was completely made out of marble with floating balls of light to keep the entire complex lit up. The Pandemonium Wizards were very well off for such a secret group.
'Marcus,' a middle aged wizard smiled at him, running his fingers through his urban hair. 'Safe trip?'
Marcus and the wizard hugged very briefly before they began to walk.
'Safer than I expected, Duncan,' Marcus replied, pulling his hood down to reveal a handsome face with short black hair and brown eyes. There was visibly nothing wrong with his appearance. 'The number of the Shadows has dramatically decreased.'
'Yes,' Duncan nodded as they continued on their way. 'All thanks to Alex Russo for defeating The Shadow Knight's Host.'
'Yes. I heard about Tris,' Marcus replied, his voice becoming softer as he spoke of his old friend. 'A truly upsetting loss. Has the court assigned Alex a new Guardian?'
Duncan shook his head. 'The court are a bit reluctant to give her a new Guardian at the moment. Did you hear about Tris preforming a Passing when he died? He transferred his skills and powers to her. Alex is two times more powerful than before which causes a problem for us.'
'Whys that?' Marcus asked, curious.
'Because Tris never trained Alex to control her Gaia Form. He never got that far. He spent a lot of time making sure she was ready to fight. And now that she's two times more powerful it means her Gaia Form is too unstable,' Duncan explained. 'And the training required for her to learn how to control her form would be too dangerous. We're not sure what stopped her the last time it activated but we're happy it did.'
Marcus chuckled. 'Understandable,' he commented as they moved along a corridor. 'That is why you called me.'
'We don't want you to train her or guard her. We want you to watch her and if her Gaia Form activates we want you to take care of it,' Duncan explained. 'In anyway possible.'
'And by that you mean?' Marcus asked and Duncan stared at him with a cold gaze.
'Eliminate her if you must,' Duncan replied. 'Tris did something stupid when he preformed the Passing. She was to come here over the Summer for further training. She is our greatest weapon against the darkness. But she is also our biggest weakness.'
'So you want me to watch her and if she has an odd spike assassinate her?' Marcus said, disgusted.
Duncan frowned. 'Don't say it like that, Marcus. These are hard times. Darkness is approaching and we have to be ready for whatever happens.'
Marcus stared forward, refusing to make eye contact.
'And that means you kill a girl who assumes she's under your protection?' Marcus questioned. 'Just because she wasn't able to do her full training before her Guardian died in her arms.'
'She is under our protection,' Duncan shot back as they passed the entrance to a library. 'But it doesn't stop us from being cautious.'
Marcus said nothing as they walked through the corridors and up the many steps. They came a set of golden doors with a dragon, a golden griffin and an elf imprinted on the metal. They walked towards the doors that slid open without a sound and they walked through.
The room was dark apart from the spot where a blue fire floated above the ground. There were fourteen Wizards sitting around the fire and Marcus and Duncan joined them.
'Now that we are all here,' a rasp voice said from the other side of the circular table. 'I'd like to welcome Marcus back to the Order of Pandemonium.'
There was a quite applause that Marcus acknowledged and bowed his head to.
'I would like to get on with the meeting,' the same voice said. 'Have there been any sightings or rumors of the whereabouts of The Shadow Knight?'
'No, Sir,' an African accent answered. 'By the looks of things he is in hiding, gathering his strength after his fight with the young Alex Russo.'
'And have we discovered the reason behind him taking a host body?' the rasp voice asked.
'We believe that it was he that killed the last Gaia Keeper,' Duncan said. 'Killing someone that powerful he might have received a large amount of damage. Maybe he can't move that far away without hurting himself. Taking on a host body would give him time to heal and allow him to act.'
'Any reason why he would choose the future form of Alex Russo's ex boyfriend?' the voice questioned.
'We assume it's because the trouble between the two before he ran away,' another voice said. 'Alex Russo slept with someone else and he found out. Then when he ran away his mother tried to drown the girl Alex cheated on him with but ended up drowning herself.
'We feel that The Shadow Knight was using the person with the most hatred towards her,' the voice continued. 'And lets face it. A guy who lost his mother and has been sleep rough for a few years is going to be pretty angry at her.'
There were a few mutters of agreements. Marcus laid back against his chair, crossing his arms.
'And now to the matter of Alex Russo,' the rasp voice declared and there was silence. 'Can you confirm that Alex will be out of New York for the summer?'
'Yes,' a voice said. 'She will spend the summer at a music camp where her girlfriend Mitchie Torress attended.'
'Do you know what lessons she will be taking?' the rasp voice questioned.
'Yes, Sir,' the same voice replied. 'Alex will be taking drum, guitar and singing lessons while attending this camp.'
'Marcus,' the rasp voice called.
'Yes, Sir?' Marcus asked.
'Has Duncan briefed you on your mission?' there were mutters now.
'Do you accept this mission?' the rasp voice asked and Marcus looked at Duncan who nodded, urging him to answer.
'Excellent. We will arrange for you to teach her drum lessons.'
Marcus nodded, unsure if he could be seen or not.
'Then this meeting is over.'
Marcus stood up at once and left without a word. Duncan followed him into the corridor where Marcus turned to him.
'I don't agree with the mission,' Marcus told him.
'Then why did you agree?' Duncan asked.
'Because if I didn't then Alex has a high chance of dying if there's the slightest clue something is wrong with her,' Marcus snapped.
'You know the rules,' Duncan said. 'If you accept a mission you must carry it out.'
Marcus folded his arms. 'I can't believe they're sending me to some camp. Which one is it anyway?'
Mitchie covered her ears as Alex started screaming with joy the moment they passed the wooden "CAMP ROCK" sign. Alex was practically jumping with excitement as Connie drove past a number of kids dancing, drumming, playing guitars and cars parking to let the kids out.
Connie parked the van near the kitchen and the three got out of the van. Alex started jumping up and down.
'Oh my God!' Alex screamed. 'I'm at Camp Rock!'
Mitchie giggled. 'Isn't it cool?'
'So cool!' Alex said and hugged her girlfriend. 'Thank you!' Alex said before grabbing Connie and forcing her to join in the hug. 'Thank you both.'
Connie laughed. 'It's the least I could do after you saved Mitchie's life.'
Alex and Mitchie smiled at each other. She had no idea Alex had saved her daughter more than once. Nor did she know Mitchie had been tied to the Statue of Liberty a few months ago to draw Alex out. And since then the statue wasn't the only thing Mitchie had been tied to...
They got their stuff our of the van which resulted in Alex carrying a few bags on her back, one guitar case that actually held her guitar and another guitar case that held her sword that she had been given to by the Pandemonium Wizards.
It was Tris's sword.
'You two are in cabin number sixty nine,' Connie told them and Alex smiled at this, noticing Mitchie was trying to stop herself from doing the same.
'My favorite number,' Alex smirked, giving Mitchie a quick wink that caused her to blush. They started to get their stuff out. Alex and Mitchie walked Connie to her cabin, both of them pointing things out to Alex as they walked pass them.
'OK, girls,' Connie said. 'Here's my cabin. I'll see you layer, OK?'
'Yeah, Mum,' Mitchie said, kissing her on the cheek and Connie walked in. Mitchie and Alex then went in search for their cabin, finding it was one near the lake and they both squealed with excitement before rushing into their cabin.
'Oh my God!' Alex smiled. 'This is our home for the summer!'
'Mmm...' Mitchie said. 'I'm living with you a few more years than I planned. Maybe we really should get married.'
'Shut up,' Alex laughed.
'I just want to know who is taking who's name,' Mitchie joked. 'I think Alex Torress is very good. But Mitchie Russo is just cute.'
'It's a good thing we're not famous,' Alex giggled. 'People would be calling us Mitlex or Alitchie.'
They both laughed and started to unpack. Mitchie couldn't help but notice that Alex had not packed and bras.
'You were serious when you said you weren't going to wear them anymore?' Mitchie asked and Alex smiled slyly.
'I thought it would make you happy,' Alex said. 'Means you see more for less effort.'
At this Mitchie pulled out her black corset and held it up at Alex, a teasing smirk on her face.
'Does that mean I don't have to wear this?' she asked before getting her stockings out with a matching thong. 'Or this?'
Alex's throat went dry. 'Y-you brought them?'
'Well I thought you'd like to see me in them,' Mitchie smiled. 'But if you'd rather see more for less effort I think they'll stay in my suitcase.'
'No!' Alex said a bit too quickly. 'I'd love to do a lot of work just to get you in it!'
At this Mitchie pulled out a pair of handcuffs. 'If you get out these tonight I'll put the corset and stockings on. If you don't then I get my way with you.'
'So either way I win?' Alex pointed out.
'So do I,' Mitchie smiled.
Alex saw the lust in her eyes and wanted her so much. And it didn't help with the weather being so hot! It was almost like Mitchie could read her mind because she walked over to her, throwing the corset and other stuff on her bed before grabbing Alex, unzipping her jeans and sliding her hand inside, causing Alex to gasp and hold onto Mitchie for support.
'Y-you're so evil sometimes,' Alex breathed.
'This is my territory, Russo,' Mitchie smiled. 'New York was yours. Now we're in mine and do you know what that means?'
'You're mine for the entire summer,' Mitchie kissed her neck softly. 'And I'm going to enjoy it,' she whispered in her ear, sending shivers down Alex's spine. Without another word Mitchie took her hands out of her jeans and walked to her bed, quickly licking her fingers with a look of satisfaction in her eyes.
Alex didn't think music was going to be the only thing going on this summer. And she didn't mind one bit.
I'm terrible. I planned to have time off from Alex and Mitchie for at least a day (doesn't sound like much now I think about it) but I could not resist. I hope this opening chapter tells you how much darker it will be on one side of the story but how much smuttier it will be on the other!
I originally planned this one to be longer but I feel this ending is more effective. I'll just have to make sure the next chapter is a lot longer!
Thanks to all those who reviewed the final chapter of Sweet as Sugar! I couldn't stop myself from smiling as I read them. I feel a bit bad that I killed off Tris now :( but going by your reviews he and his death had a impact so he served his purpose.
Review and tell me what you think of this opening of the brand new Alex/Mitchie femslash. I'm actually considering doing a trilogy!
