A/N- Hey guys! This is my first House of Anubis fanfic; I'm a huge fan of HOA! If you're a Kickin' It fan as well, then read my stories, because I've done 4 Kickin' It stories so far! So anyway, my favorite pairings: Fabina and Jara! I think Jerome and Mara are totally cute together, but she keeps wasting her time on Mick. Anyway, Hope you all like it; this story is called Safe and Sound?
You must be careful Nina….keep the locket safe...don' ever let it out of your sight!
Sarah is that…
I jerked up from the pillow, letting out a little scream. Impulsively, I felt my forehead, and it sweat was beading down. I winced as I tried to play the nightmare back in my head. Was that just a dream, or was Sarah attempting to communicate with me once again? The thought of that was scary. I mean, scarier things have happened from the moment I stepped foot in Anubis house, but it seems that even after the Cup of Ankh incident (which was only last night), it's not over. Is it ever over in Anubis house?I looked out into the window, and shades of pink and orange began to emerge in the sky, with the glowing sun illuminating the early morning sky. I saw Amber on the other end of the room, who slowly rose up from her bed, and rubbing her eyes.
"Nina, was that you who screamed?" Amber asked me as she loosened the curls from her golden locks.
"Uh, yeah sorry Amber," I said. "Just a bad dream, that's all." But it was more than just a bad dream. It was a nightmare. Voices. Familiar voices.
Nina, get it together. The search is over. The elixir is over. The chosen hour is over. EVERYTHING is over.
"What was it about?" Amber asked me.
"Well what happened was—"
"You know what, I don't want to know!" She said. "Not another image to keep me up at night! Let's just get ready for school. That'll get your mind off of things." She approached me, and showed out a hand. Rolling my eyes playfully, I took Amber's soft, moisturized hands, and we both started getting ready for school. Typical Amber. I wasn't surprised that she didn't want to hear what my nightmare was about.
I didn't want to repeat it either.
"Nina, are you alright?" Fabian asked me, during breakfast.
I quietly played with my cereal, and sipped on my orange juice. I looked into Fabian, into his kind dark eyes. I had to admit, ever since he kissed me last night, I didn't know whether I should act like I'm his girlfriend, or if I'm still his friend. Love is a confusing thing.
"Yeah, I'm fine." I muttered, giving him a half-hearted smile.
"You don't look fine. You're hair's a mess, you're wearing your tie the wrong way, and you have black circles around your eyes. What happened?"
That was Fabian. Always caring, always looking out for you.
"Just been a bit pre-occupied that's all," I said, still muttering under my breath.
"Preoccupied? About what?" He asked me.
"Oh whisper, whisper, and whisper!" Jerome entered the room, smirking. I rolled my eyes. Here come the pranksters Jerome Clark and Alfie Lewis. It's surprising their last names are names of some very famous historical figures. I guarantee that if they even do something "historic" it most likely will be historic to The Historic World of Pranking. "Well come on, you can tell me know, I apparently know everything." Alfie approached right behind him, holding waffles in his hands.
"Nina, you look awful!" He said, looking at me like I was some monster.
"I've heard!" I said. Patricia and Amber walked into the room as well.
"Nina, what happened?" Patricia asked me. I was tired of being asked all these questions.
"Okay, I just had a really bad dream last night, okay? Not a big deal!" I exasperated, staring at everyone, so that they get the message and stops annoying me. Frankly, I didn't want to talk about it.
"What was the dream about?" Fabian asked me. I looked into his eyes and they were filled with concern. Sometimes even though they were sweet, those eyes are the ones that makes me give in to pretty much everything, which I don't like doing.
"It was awful," I said. "Sarah was, like, speaking to me."
"Did she say that there would be an alien attack? Because then we would have to be up in arms!" Alfie said. Patricia nudged him.
"No Alfie, this is not an alien invasion this is serious," Patricia said, talking to him slowly so that it would go through his thick head. She faced me. "What did Sarah say?"
"She told me to keep the locket safe, and that I need to be careful. Whatever that means." I said.
"You still have the locket, right?" Amber said. I took it out from underneath my uniform, and showed it to her. The locket that changed our lives forever.
"Alright, then I guess you just have to keep it safe, then." Jerome said. I looked into his eyes, and ever since last night, they were filled with fear. I almost felt bad for him, also feeling that this was a bit ironic. The Jerome Clark, always playing pranks, always the one to be person you need to be scared of, is the one that's scared himself. I couldn't blame him. We were all scared.
"Yeah, I pretty much got that part," I said, hiding it underneath my shirt.
"Hey, have you seen Mara?" Amber asked. "She has my hair straightener."
"Uh, she and Mick went to school early, I think." Fabian said. Amber's face suddenly darkened, and she quickly took the last sip of her orange juice and started walking out.
"Aw, c'mon Amber I mean you got me! Don't waste your time thinking about Mick!" Alfie said, letting out a goofy grin. She turned and faced him.
"Alfie, first off, I'm not jealous, and second we are not boyfriend and girlfriend. I just went on one date with you! That's all! Can we leave it at that please?" And with a huff, she stomped off.
"Oh, come now Alfie forget about her," Jerome said. "Race you to school?"
"Oh yeah you're on!" Alfie said, and they started hastily running out the door, leaving Patricia me and Fabian alone.
"So, Nina do you really think that it was real? It could've just been a dream, you know. After all, lots of scary things happened last night." Patricia said.
"I don't know," I admitted helplessly. "But it seemed so real. Like Sarah really was telling me something again."
"Alright, well just keep the locket safe. I'm going to go see if Joy's done unpacking. We have a lot to catch up on. See you two later."
"Bye," I waved. Now it was just me and Fabian alone. Fantastic.
"Here, let me fix your tie," He said, smiling a bit. He reached for my tie and started putting it the right way. I gave him a thankful smile.
"Can I ask you something?" I asked.
"So are we….are we like….girlfriend and boyfriend now?" I said a bit awkwardly. I gave me a confused look.
"Do you want to be?" He asked.
I thought about that question. Do I? Of course. But how do I tell him that? Will being a couple jeopardize our friendship? Will we be the same? I faced him, and eyes seemed just as confused as mine.
"I'll have to get back to you on that." I admitted. Luckily, he didn't seem hurt. He seemed…a little…relieved. He cleared his throat.
"So, fancy walking to school together?" He asked in his British accent. I smiled.
"Sure, I'd fancy that," I said, laughing a bit. We both got up from our seat, and started walking together…holding hands.
"Alright Class we will continue this discussion after your lunch period!" Mr. Winkler said. We all got out of our seats, and started heading out the door. I rummaged through my bag….but I couldn't find it.
I couldn't find my project!
Haha, you thought I was talking about the locket, weren't you? Trust me; I'm guarding that with my life right now.
"Nina?" Fabian asked me. "What are you looking for?"
"My biology project! It's due today! If I don't have it, Mr. Sweet's going to murder me. Ugh, I'm going to have to go back to the house and get it." I started heading out the doors, when Fabian caught my arm.
"Here, why don't I come with you?"
"Fabian," I said, smiling. "I'm just getting my biology project. I'm not hiding antiques from Victor this time."
He smiled. "Well, anything can happen. You're not yourself today. I don't want something happening to you."
"Oh, fine let's go," I said, laughing playfully shoving his arm. We both walked over the house which wasn't far away, and started sneaking inside to my room, without Victor and Trudy catching us. We both slipped inside my room, and I started quietly rummaging through my desk.
"Fabian, stand guard!" I hissed. "I don't want to see Victor's pointy face." He nodded and stood in front of the door. After going through what I call my black hole, I finally found the project.
"Okay, good it's here," I said, almost hugging my assignment in relief. I faced Fabian and gave him a smile, but he didn't seem to be smiling. In fact, his jaw dropped, and his eyes were so wide, it could've fallen out of his head.
"Fabian?" I asked, confused. "What's wrong?"
With a shaky finger he started pointing behind me. I turned around in confusion, but from what I saw I could have my eyes fall out of my head as well. I let out a little whimper, and I reached out and clutched Fabian's hand, in fear and shock.
Writing. I saw writing.
Engraved on the walls of my bedroom.
Slowly popping out.
In drippy ink.
And it looked like…. blood?
"Oh, dear chosen one,
You make think that this is over,
You may think that the search is over,
You make think that your job is done,
But in Anubis house it's never over. EVER.
If you don't find what I ask, you will die a painful death.
Do what I say…
No more writing was forming.
A/N- OMG! Huge cliffhanger! Hope you guys liked the first chapter of Safe and Sound? Review please! It would mean the world to me! I will update as soon as I can! Sorry, this chapter's short…trust me, I can write longer, but I really wanted to see how this turns out. If I get like a decent amount of reviews (maybe 5-10) I'll continue. But if I don't, then I don't see the point on continueing….so anyway, hope you all liked it! Tell me what you all think will happen and who wrote that! I'd like to hear some of your interpretations to my ambiguous chapter.
PEACE. LOVE. HAPPINESS.
