Claire: Thank you so much. I'm glad you love my ideas. Don't worry. I'll update as soon as I can.

StarGazing03: Glad you like the first chapter. And, no. The teacher's names weren't accidental. They were a shout out to Glee. I couldn't help it! It's one of my favourite shows! (Others are Bones, Castle, The Good Wife and NCIS.)

OK. Now, let's revisit each chapter.

Prologue: Allie, Will, Jen, Lance, Miles, Mikaela and Marco return to Avalon High for their junior year while Will and Marco's little sister, Leah, starts her freshman year. We also learn a little bit about Morgan and Feya's plan.

Chapter 1: We learn about Allie starving herself over the summer and back at school and they catch Morgan and Feya making out in the closet. *shudders* Allie also notices the marks on their wrists and the gang decide to track down Allie's varsity track coach – who also happens to be a member of the Order of the Bear – to identify the markings.

Chapter 2: The gang finds Allie's track coach who explains that the markings are of the Dark Forces, more specifically, the people they're reincarnations of, Morgan le Fey and Morgause. She also suggests they read the follow-up to the Journal of the Order of the Bear, The Merlin Prophercy. Leah then meets senior Jacob Hardway and he serenades with the song Better Than Neil and they agree to go out on a date Saturday night. They then head to Allie's house after their respected practices to find the book. There, Morgan and Feya attempt to murder Allie by contaminating nachos with nuts, which Allie happens to be severely allergic to. Thankfully, Will reaches her in time and she's saved.

Chapter 3 (previous chapter): Allie has to spend the night in hospital for observation so the gang takes the opportunity to talk about the whole reincarnation business in private as well as try to figure out why Morgan and Feya would want them dead. Marco and Will decide to head down to the cafeteria to collect something to drink. But then Morgan and Feya shut down the elevator and release a gas which would cause Will and Marco to suffocate. Thankfully, Miles has a vision of this occurring and he uses his magic to save them in time. Miles wanted to tell Allie, but Will begged him to let him tell her himself when she was out of the hospital.

And that, of course is pretty much it. This will be an interesting one. Believe me...

"WHOO HOO! HOME SWEET HOME, BABY!" Miles crowed as Allie and Leah walked out of the hospital room carrying backpacks.

"Miles, keep it down. We're still inside the hospital," Allie repremended with a laugh as she and Leah joined the gang.

"Yeah. There are patients who are still asleep," Leah added, "Well, that and the nurses and a few of the doctors give us death glares whenever we come out of the room."

"We tried to keep the noise on the DL last night!" Marco defended.

"And some people snore," Jen added before coughing Lance's name.

"I have tonsilites!" Lance defended.

"Then get your tonsils removed," Mikaela suggested.

"I just don't think now is a good time with everything that's going on," Lance retorted.

"Lance, your health comes first. You don't need to be worrying about us. Just schedule the surgery," Allie demanded.

"Yes, Your Highness," Lance grumbled, earning a look from Allie, "Force of habit! You're King Arthur and I'm a Knight of the Round Table."

"Good save," Will remarked.

"Come on. Let's get out of here. All the looks are making me paranoid," Mikaela moaned.

"I'm with ya there," Allie, Leah and Jen immediately agreed.

With that said, they walked out of the hospital with the respective couples walking with their arms around one another. Marco had an arm slung around Leah's shoulders as a sign of brotherly devotion; as did Will. None of them were aware of the gazes of Morgan and Feya boring into them as they departed the hospital.

"I may have been in that hospital for one night, but it's good to be home," Allie sighed as she dropped her bag on the floor and collapsed onto the bed and into Will's waiting loving embrace.

"Yeah. I can understand why you woke up sore. That mattress felt like bricks," Will recalled as he rubbed his hip before remembering what he promised Miles and Marco, "Hey, Allie. I can tell you anything, right?" When Allie nodded, he continued, "While Marco and I went to get something to drink from the cafeteria, Morgan and Feya attacked us."

"What?" Allie gasped.

"They shut down the elevators with Marco and I inside. Then this gas started seeping inside the car. We didn't know what it was but we knew that we would end up suffocating. Thankfully, Miles saved us," Will explained.

"He had a vision that you guys were trapped inside. That's why he left the room so quickly," Allie realised.

"Wait. He had a vision?" Will repeated.

"Why didn't you tell me straightaway?" Allie demanded.

"Alles, you were in hospital because you almost died, remember? I didn't want to worry you so I decided to wait until you were discharged to tell you," Will defended.

"You still should've told me," Allie retorted as she climbed off the bed and turned her back towards him.

"Look. I get it. I blew the 'no secrets' pact we made on our first date. And I'm sorry. But I didn't it because I love you. And I don't want someone I love to worry about me too much," Will tried to explain.

"Will, with this whole reincarnation stuff, I still worry about you either way!" Allie confessed to him as she turned to face him.

"Don't. I can look after myself. It's ME who should be doing the worrying about YOU!" Will snapped, "I mean, you starved yourself over the summer and you almost died. Yesturday, you nearly died because of nuts!" His voice was breaking, but he didn't care. It didn't stop Allie from worrying, though. "I'm your boyfriend and I love you! No, wait a minute. Scratch that. I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU! I have been since that day at the water fountain last year! And when I found out you were King Arthur, I swore to protect you because I'm in love with you; not just because of your destiny. I can't exist without you! And it's killing me, Allie! Without you, I go crazy! Without you, I'm insufferable to some people! Without you, I may as well die!"

*song starts here and is sung by Leah and Miles*

Will was full on crying now; heck, even sobbing! But he didn't care. It felt good to finally let it out. Allie immediately pulled him close to her. She stroked the soft chocolate brown locks that covered his head as he cried against her.

Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor.
Reaching for the phone cause I can't fight it anymore.

"I'm so sorry, Allie," Will whispered into his beloved girlfriend's chest one hundred times over and over.

"No. I'm the one who should be sorry," Allie whispered back.

"You have nothing to be sorry for," Will retorted.

Allie just kissed his head and let him cry into her chest.

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind.
For me, it happens all the time.

"Tell me you feel the same way. Please," Will pleaded.

"I feel the same way," Allie reassured him as she leaned against the bedpost.

It's a quarter after one.
I'm all alone and I need you now.
Said I wouldn't call but I've lost all control
And I need you now.
And I don't know I can do without.
I just need you now...

The sobbing stopped but Will still had tears leaking from his eyes. He remained snuggled into his girlfriend's chest listening to his favourite lullaby; her heartbeat. And Allie let him stay in this position. And she would for as long as he needed to stay with her.

Another shot of whiskey; can't stop looking at the door.
Wishing you'd come sweeping in the way you did before.

"I love you, Allie," Will murmured as he pulled away from her chest and stared into her eyes.

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind.
For me, it happens all the time.

"I love you, Will," Allie murmured back.

It's a quarter after one.
I'm a little drunk and I need you now.
Said I wouldn't call but I've lost all control.
And I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without.
I just need you now. Whoa, whoa.

And together, Will and Allie whispered the following words:

Guess I'd rather hurt than feel nothing at all...

And with that done, that kissed.

It's a quarter after one.
I'm all alone and I need you now.
And I said I wouldn't call.
But I'm a little drunk.
And I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without.
I just need you now.

Their kiss was fuelled with nothing but their love for one another. It was passionate yet pure. They wanted to go further yet showed no intention to.

I just need you now...
Oh baby, I need you now...

Then Will's hand unintentionally went up her stomach and landed on her breast. She inhaled in shock and Will immediately pulled away.

*song is fully faded out by now*

"Oh crud. Allie, I'm sorry," Will fumbled as he went to withdraw his hand...but Allie kept it there.

"Will, relax. It's OK. I...actually kinda like it," Allie confessed shyly.

Smiling, they kissed some more. Will's hand remained on her small, yet perfect breasts.

In the park, Leah was out on a run with her headphones in her ears as her iPod Touch blared out Not Afraid by Eminem. Like Allie, whenever she runs, she likes to listen to rap to keep herself motivated if she ever runs with her iPod; Eminem, especially. The angrier the rapper, the better. She kept her Eminem songs on a cycle. First it started off with When You're Gone and the current song now she was listening to was preceeded by his duet with Rihanna, Love the Way You Lie. She wasn't aware of the fact that Miles was behind her jogging to the rhythm of the Black Eyed Peas song, Boom Boom Pow!

"Hey, Leah!" Miles called out as he caught up to the youngest and female Wagner.

"Hey, Miles!" Leah greeted through her steady laboured breathing before challenging Miles, "Wanna race?"

"Last person to the corner buys lunch?" Miles offered.

"You're on!" Leah responded.

With that, both of them took off at blazing speeds. By now, their songs were changed and they were both listen to Eminem's song with Skylar Grey and Dr Dre I Need a Doctor.

I'm about to lose my mind.
You've been gone for so long.
I'm running out of time.
I need a doctor.
Call me a doctor.
I need a doctor, doctor.
To bring me back to life...

They were neck-and-neck for the first quarter of their little race until Leah found the energy to overtake him. This, of course, motivated Miles.

I told the world one day, I would pay it back.
Say it on tape and lay it, record it, so that one day I could play it back.
But I don't even know if I believe it when I'm saying it.
Doubt startin' to creep in, eeryday it's just so grey and black.
Hope, I just need a ray of that.
'Cause no one sees my vision.
When I play it for 'em, they just say it's whack.
But they don't know what dope is.
And I don't know if I was awake or asleep when I wrote this.
All I know is that you came to me when I was at my lowest.
You picked me up, breathed new life in me; I owe my life to you.
But for the life of me, I don't see why you don't see like I do.
But it just dawned on me: you lost a son. Demon's fightin' you. It's dark.
Let me turn on the lights and brighten me and enlighten you.
I don't think you realize what you mean to me; not the slightest clue.
'Cause me and you; we're like a crew. I was like your sidekick.
You gon' either wanna fight when I get off this f***ing mic.
Or you gon' hug me. But I'm out of options, there's nothing I can do cause...

By now, the race is halfway over and Miles and Leah were neck-to-neck once more. There were moments where they had random bursts of energy and other times where they were barely able to keep a good pace.

I'm about to lose my mind.
You've been gone for so long.
I'm running out of time.
I need a doctor.
Call me a doctor.
I need a doctor, doctor.
To bring me back to life.

Now the race was three-quarters done and Leah was in the lead once more. And, in the end, she reached the corner first.

"Ha! I won!" Leah cheered.

"Showoff," Miles grumbled.

"Since you have to buy the two of us lunch, you can choose where we go," Leah decided.

"Are you in the mood for Italian? I wanna try that new place just down the road," Miles told her.

"I love Italian," Leah breathed.

Smiling, they ran towards the resteraunt.

It hurts when i see you struggle.
You come to me with ideas.
You say they're just pieces, so I'm puzzled.
'Cause the s*** I hear is crazy.
But you're either getting lazy, or you don't believe in you no more.
Seems like your own opinions, not one you can form.
Can't make a decision. You keep questioning yourself.
Second-guessing, and it's almost like you're begging for my help.
Like I'm YOUR leader.
You're supposed to f***ing be my mentor.
I can endure no more!
I demand you remember who you are!
It was YOU who believed in me,
When everyone was telling you, 'Don't sign me.'
Everyone at the f***ing label. Let's tell the truth.
You risked your career for me. I know it as well as you.
Nobody wanted to f*** with the white boy.
Dre, I'm crying in this booth.
You saved my life, now maybe it's my time to save yours.
But I can never repay you. What you did for me is way more.
But I ain't giving up faith. And you ain't giving up on me.
Get up, Dre! I'm dying! I need you! Come back for f***'s sake!

"Hello. Are you ready to order?" the waitress asked as she approached Miles and Leah's table.

"Yes. I'll have the Pasta e Fagioli with a Sprite, please," Leah requested kindly.

"And I'll have the Spaghetti alla Puttanesca with a Coke, please," Miles ordered just as kindly as Leah.

"Would you like some garlic bread?" the waitress questioned as she took the menus off them.

"Yes please," the both of them responded together.

"I shall be back with your orders soon," the waitress promised before leaving them at peace.

"Did you see the way she was checking you out?" Leah asked Miles.

"She's so pale. She's possibly a vampire. Vampires are everywhere these days," Miles grumbled.

"Miles, that's what you thought about Mikaela. And look where you are now," Leah reminded him.

"Leah, I've gotta confess to you. Mikaela and I aren't as happy as we were at first anymore," Miles admitted, "She seems more distant than normal and is so interested in spending time with Lance."

"Let's just hope she's not the reincarnation of Elaine of Astolat," Leah remarked.

"Who?" Miles demanded who is having a memory black.

"The Lady of Shalott. Lancelot ditched her for Queen Guinivere so she didn't eat or drink anything for ten days before floating to her death in a boat down the river to Camelot," Leah explained.

"Ah," Miles said as he remembered everything about her, "Wait. What makes you think she could possibly be Elaine of Astolat?"

"Think about it. She is dating you but she's more interested in spending time with Lance than she is with her own boyfriend – you, in this case. Allie and I have noticed that whenever Lance and Jen show off PDA, it's almost like a dagger of envy strikes her heart," Leah informed him.

"Damn you two for being so observant," Miles cursed, earning giggles from Leah. For a moment, it seemed as if Miles and Leah were the couple and that Miles wasn't dating Mikaela and Leah didn't have a date with Jacob Hardway the upcoming weekend.

I'm about to lose my mind.
You've been gone for so long.
I'm running out of time.
I need a doctor.
Call me a doctor.
I need a doctor, doctor.
To bring me back to life.
Bring me back to life.
I need a doctor, doctor.
To bring me back to life.

"Your orders are here now. I hope they are to your liking," the waitress announced as she placed the steaming pasta dishes before them.

"Thank you very much," Miles thanked before the waitress walked away.

"Wow. This is really good," Leah commented after swallowing her first mouthful.

"Maybe we should suggest this place to Will and Allie. I hear they do this romantic setting for couples who are madly in love," Miles gushed, earning him a strange look from Leah, "I heard about it from Lance!"

"Nice, using one of your best friends as a defence," Leah sighed.

"Do you honestly believe that Morgan and Feya want us dead?" Miles blurted.

It literally feels like a lifetime ago.
But I still remember the s*** like it was just yesturday though.
You walked in, yellow jumpsuit.
Whole room cracked jokes.
Once you got inside the booth, told you like smoke.
Went through friends; some of them I put on.
But they just left. They said was riding to the death.
But where the f*** are they now?
No that I need them, I don't see none of them.
All I see is Slim.
F*** you, you fairweather friends.
All I need is him.
F***ing backstabbers.
When the chips were down, you just laughed at us.
No you bout to feel the f***ing wrath of aftermath, faggots.
You gon' see us in our lab jackets and ask where the f*** we been?
You can kiss my indecisive a** crack maggots and the crackers a**.
Little cracker jack beat making wack math.
Backwards producers, I'm back, bastards.
One more CD and them I'm packing up my bags and as I leave,
And I guarantee they'll scream, 'Dre, don't leave us like that, man' cause...

"I don't see how to NOT believe it, Miles. We're reincarnations of King Arthur and his court after all. And Morgan le Fay and Morgause dispised us back then. It's only natural they try to kill us in this life," Leah explained.

"But why you? You're not the reincarnation of anything," Miles objected.

"Actually, I am the reincarnation of someone," Leah butted in.

"Who?" Miles demanded.

Leah went to speak but gunshots were fired. Miles and Leah immediately ducked as well as everyone else in the resteraunt. People were trying to get in contact with the police. Miles turned and saw Leah on the ground clutching her arm stained with blood from a bullet wound. His eyes widened as he went to help her.

"Hang on, Leah," Miles pleaded as he activated his magic.

I'm about to lose my mind.
You've been gone for so long.
I'm running out of time.
I need a doctor.
Call me a doctor.
I need a doctor, doctor.
To bring me back to life...

"By the powers of the Old Religion, heal this wound. Any pain that she has; soothe," Miles muttered as he waved his staff over the wound.

Bring me back to life...

Slowly and painfully, the bullet was removed and it landed in Miles' hand. There was still blood leaking from the wound but now, it looked more like a flesh wound than an actual bullet wound.

Bring me back to life...

"You OK?" Miles asked her worriedly.

"I'm fine," Leah assured him, "What about you?"

"No injuries. I'm OK," was Miles' response.

Miles ripped some of the fabric off his shirt and tied it around Leah's arm as some sort of makeshift bandage.

"What do you think this bullet is?" Miles questioned as he held up said bullet.

"I don't know, Miles. But I think Dad would know," Leah replied.

"Come on. We need to alert the others and get back to your place," Miles announced.

And without a second to lose, they ran like the wind.
