Chapter 3: Rescue
Chase drug Tyler into the aged house and the girls locked all of he entrances. Tyler made sure that he had all of them in his sight, especially Chase who was standing beside him, staring at him hungrily. This made Tyler very nervous. As Tyler watched chase watch him, he noticed a few things looked differently about the older teen. Besides his scars, Chase looked… older. Not much, maybe around his late twenties or early thirties, but it was defiantly enough to notice that his constant using has finally caught up with him.
"So what are we going to do with Tyler?" Sarah asked. "We can't let him go, or he'll tell the others."
"just leave him to me, I'll take real good care of him" Chase said with a smirk.
Tyler glared at Sarah. "So you were fucking with us the whole time?"
"Basically." Sarah replied. "I had to know how easy it would be to manipulate the four of you. It's safe to say that it was easier than I thought it would be. after all, I tricked you didn't I?"
"You fucking whore." Tyler snapped.
"Watch your mouth. We can kill you whenever we want, keep that in mind."
"The others will suspect something if I don't come back soon." Tyler said.
"Thanks for reminding me." Chase said humorously. Chase's eyes flashed black and he changed his appearance to Tyler's, which also changed his voice. "You might want to keep him quiet for this." Chase said as he pulled out his cell phone.
Sarah muttered a few words and felt a light pressure on his throat. He tried to ask her what she just did, but his voice wouldn't work. "Alright, make your call." Sarah said.
Chase dialed Caleb's number and waited for him to answer.
"Hello?" Came Caleb's voice.
"Caleb, it's Tyler." Chase said with Tyler's voice.
"Where've you been? Reid's been looking all over for you."
"I drove Sarah to Salem to see her sisters. I called to tell you that I might be staying a few nights."
"You know, if it were anyone else I would be very suspicious about them staying alone with my girlfriend."
"I don't know weather I should take that as a compliment or not." Chase said jokingly.
"You know that I'm just messing with you." Caleb said. "But seriously, don't mess with her."
"Don't worry, messing with her is the last thing on my mind right now."
"That's what I like to hear."
"Hey man, I've got to go now. The girls are like slave drivers. They've got me helping them clean up and old house that they recently bought. It's a real disaster."
"Alright, have fun." Caleb chuckled. "And Tyler, I know that I don't have to remind you, but try not to use while you're there."
"I'll try not to." Chase said. "See ya later."
Chase hung up and shifted back to his normal form. Sarah lifted her spell from Tyler. "That settles that. And Tyler, Caleb says not to fuck Sarah or use while you're here." Chase said to Tyler."
"Fat chance that will happen." Tyler snorted.
"And what's that supposed to mean?" Sarah growled grabbing onto Tyler's shirt.
Chase grabbed her by the wrist and pulled her away from Tyler. "Keep your hand's off of him." He said pushing her back.
"I almost forgot about that silly crush you have on him." Sarah said rubbing her wrists.
Tyler stared at Chase. Was what Sarah said true? Did Chase really like him? Tyler felt a blush form on his face. Wait, why was he blushing? He wasn't gay, or at least he didn't think he was. He never had any desire to be with a guy. Then again, he's never had any desire to be with a girl either. He didn't care either way. He just classified himself as not interested.
"Well at least I actually like him." Chase growled at Sarah. "You're just fucking Caleb because he's hot and you can use him."
"At least I'm fucking him. Besides, I think he's in love with me." Sarah sneered. "And what have you got? Tyler's terrified of you and you've kidnapped him. I feel the love there."
The two of them glared at each other for the longest time until Winnie broke them up. "Will you two stop your bickering, it's really annoying."
There was then a pounding at the door. "Winifred Sanderson, open up. I know you're in there." Came Max's voice.
"Damn, they're here." Winnie said grabbing the book and getting ready for an attack.
There was some murmuring and the woman, Allison said a few words in what Tyler recognized as Latin. "Laxo obfirmo quod patefacio ianua." He wasn't one hundred percent certain of what she said because his Latin was a little off, but he knew to stay away from the door right now.
The latch on the door broke and the door swung open. Then Max and Allison walked in. Max had long brown hair that was kept back in a ponytail. He wore a white long sleeved shirt with a jean jacked along with a pair of jean pants. Allison had long light brown hair that went down to her waist. She had on a lavender blouse, a black skirt and matching black jacket.
"That was very rude you know." Winnie said.
"Like you haven't done worse." Allison snarled.
"You really need to stop dwelling on the past you stupid girl. Besides our name is no longer Sanderson, it's Wenham now."
"Same difference." Max said rolling his eyes. "You'll still be the same old hags we fought thirteen years ago."
"You think so? I'd have to warn you, we aren't as stupid as we were back then."
"Well that's a relief. Maybe you'll prove to be an actual challenge for us then." Max said sarcastically.
"Are you guys going to talk all day or are we actually going to fight?" Chase asked rhetorically.
"You must be the one that snuck into my house." Max said to Chase.
"Yeah, what are you going to do about it?" Chase asked with a raised eyebrow.
Max shifted his stance getting ready to attack. Before he could do anything, Chase's eyes went black and he was slammed against the doorframe. Max stumbled for a second. "What the hell was that?"
"That… is my magic." Chase said smugly.
Sarah, Mary, and Winnie all sent a serge of their power at Allison. Allison muttered "Contego" and an energy barrier formed in front of her and deflected their magic.
Both Max and Allison threw balls of white energy at the girls. "We wont be able to take them on without Dani." Max said to Allison. "Just worry about getting the book for now."
Tyler heard this and started racking his brain for a way to help them. He noticed that the book had managed to slide away from Winnie during the attack and she was now looking for it. Tyler's eyes went black and he mad the whole house, floorboards included, start to shake. Everyone besides him and Chase were startled and grabbing something sturdy to steady themselves. Chase threw Tyler a curious look. Tyler wasn't paying any attention to Chase, he was busy looking for the book. When he spotted it, he darted over to it. Chase realized what he was doing and darted after him, he tackled Tyler to the ground when he got to him.
Tyler was now flat on his stomach, inches away from the book. He struggled to get free of Chase while trying to get the book, but to no avail. He almost had the book several times, but Chase kept slapping his hands away.
Somehow Tyler managed to knock his elbow into Chase's face giving him enough time to grab a hold of the book. "Max!" He called, getting the other man's attention. Max saw that Tyler had the book, and Tyler slid it to him. Chase tried to stop Max from getting it, but Tyler managed to stop him, and roll out from underneath him but Chase wouldn't let him get any further. After Chase had Tyler restrained, he tried to use on Max again. Tyler yelled for Max to leave, then he did something that shocked Chase, he kissed him. Chase forgot all about what he was doing before, and deepened the kiss.
Seeing that Tyler was buying them time, max started to leave, but Allison stopped him. "We have to help him. I don't think that he's one of them."
"Alright, but make it quick, we don't have much time." Max said.
"Immotus." Allison muttered. Everyone except her and Max fell to the floor unable to move. They were conscious, it's just that they were paralyzed. "Max, will you carry him?"
Max handed Allison the book and tent to Tyler and slung him over his shoulder. After he had the younger man, he carried Tyler out to their car and bound his hands behind his back for insurance. Then they drove off to their manor.
A/N: I have figured out how to deal with the 13/18-age thing but I'll explain that in a later chapter. I hoped you all enjoyed this chapter, and sorry for the long update, but I was finishing up Obsession (I'm prolonging the last chapter for a while :) ) For those of you curious, no I don't know Latin, I found a nifty online translator. Here is what everything used in this chapter translates to:
Laxo obfirmo quod patefacio ianua – undo the lock and open the door
Contego - shield
Immotus – unmoving (I wanted to use paralyze, but it wouldn't translate)
Everything sounds better in Latin (if it wasn't it would just be very cheesy.) Hopefully you can expect chapter 4 soon, I already have it written.
