A Place in This World (1)

Summary: Flora and Helia had a girl named Felicity then they had a major falling out. Fearing for their friend's safety as well as that of her daughter, the other Winx girls manage to transport Flora and Felicity to Earth where they will live for the next fifteen years. For that period of time Flora and her daughter go on as normal people with no thoughts of magic. Then one day it all changes with the accidental visit from the daughter of an old friend and the possession of one of the three keys to unlocking a hidden power.

Disclaimer:I've made it this far without cryin' a single tear and I'd sure hate to break down here.

Flora looked around anxiously as she waited for Stella and Layla to arrive. The floral fairy had somehow managed to sneak out of the house with her daughter without rousing Helia from his drug and alcohol induced slumber. But she knew from experience that there wasn't much time and her husband wouldn't be passed out for long.

Spotting the headlights of an oncoming vehicle Flora instinctively tensed and tried to hide Felicity's sleeping form behind her slim body. As the vehicle drew closer Flora's panic began to subside and she breathed a sigh of relief as Stella emerged from the car with Layla behind her.

"You weren't followed were you?" Flora asked walking up to her long time friends with Felicity securely in her arms. The infant just snuggled closer to her mother's body as the other two women approached.

"No, we had Nabu set up a security barrier to make sure of it." Layla assured the frightened woman.

"Are you sure you won't take Layla or Musa up on their offers?" Stella asked hopefully even though she already knew the answer.

"Yes, I'm sure. I don't want to put anyone in danger. Bloom was right Earth is the safest place for me and for Felicity. Helia won't think of following me there." Flora assured the blonde woman wishing she felt as confident as she sounded. "It'll be good to make a fresh start."

"Very well." Stella almost sounded like she was pouting. "Now hold still while I get this portal set up."

"We'll miss you Flora." Layla called as Stella began the incantation.

"I'll miss you too." Flora sobbed out as she embraced the two women who were making her escape finally possible.

"Don't forget us." Stella added

Flora nodded and tried to smile through her tears. Then with Felicity securely in her arms, she stepped through the portal, with Layla keeping an eye out for possible intruders and watched the world she'd known all her life slowly fade away.

And when I leave this world, I leave with no regrets.

So there you have it, the prolog to my newest story. This is a completely different second-generation fic than the one I have up with Rogue Scholar. Yes, Flora and Helia's daughter's name is still Felicity. But other than that nothing's the same. But I hope you all liked it. The first chapter should be up shortly.
