Lila sat on her bed, as she had been for the last hour or so. The black case was sitting on the table opposite her. She was wary of it,

something about it made her shiver. She had no idea as to what it could be, as far as she knew this thing hadn't even existed until now.

Her parents had never told her of any kind of…secret stash? Is that what this is? Lila took a deep breath. Ok, I guess the only way

I'll know what's inside is if I open it. She stood up, and crossed the room to the table. Her hands shook as she placed them on top of

the box, as she unclasped the lid… "And really bad eggs!" Jack burst into the room. Lila screamed and in her surprise accidentally

knocked the box off the table, sending it skidding across the floor. "God dammit Jack!" She gasped. Her heart was pounding at a million

miles a minute. "Didn't your mother ever teach you how to knock?" Jack laughed, "Aw luv, did I scare the little kitty, ay? How 'bout you

let ol' Jack make it up to you?" He walked over to her and wrapped his arms around her, and kissed her gently on the neck. He noticed

she was shaking. "What's wrong pet?" He followed Lila's gaze to where the black box lay on the floor, half under the bed. It was



"Will…come to bed." Elizabeth whined. Will had been pacing the room for far too long. "What are you thinking about?" She asked him.

Will answered without looking up. "Lila." He must have noticed the animosity in the silence that followed his comment. He looked up to

see Elizabeth glaring at him. He laughed. "No, no, not like that. Don't be silly." He went and lay down on the bed next to her. Elizabeth

turned her head away from him. "Do you think she's pretty?" She asked haughtily. Will smiled, and softly turned Elizabeth's face towards

him. "Of all the things I have seen in this world, of all the pretty women and wonderful treasures, I have never found anything as beautiful

as you. Every time I look at you, you take my breath away, and I can't believe how lucky I am to have you." Elizabeth smiled softly. "I'm

sorry Will, I guess I just…" Her sentence was cut off by Will's lips. As he kissed her she melted into his arms. "I love you, Will." Will

smiled, "I know." And he kissed her again, holding her body close to his.


"What's this, then, kitten?" Jack asked softly. Lila shook her head. "I don't know." She walked over to the bed, and lifted the covers off

the floor. Jack watched intently as she slowly reached out her hand, and in one, swift movement, she lifted up the box, quickly tossing it

to the side as if she were afraid to touch it. The contents of the box lay on the floor. Lila stared at it for a moment, before gingerly picking

it up. It was a wooden flute. A simple, wooden flute. Completely unremarkable. Lila frowned. "Why would my parents…?" She trailed

off. There is more to this that it seems. She thought. Although it appeared to be merely a wooden flute, she felt something in it…

something more…powerful? "Lila." Jack's voice was soft. "Can I have a look at that little trinket?" Lila was surprised to see the concern

in his eyes. She handed the flute over to Jack, who inspected it intently. And she noticed how his eyes widened as he turned the flute over

in his hands. She stepped towards him, and saw what had caught his eye. On the end of the flute was a mark. Lila looked up and met

Jack's eyes. She lifted her hand, and gently touched her shoulder. The mark that had been carved into the flute depicted to swirling 'C'

type shapes, one hooked on to the bottom of the other. Lila's voice was low. "My birthmark."
