No such Thing as Happy Endings?

Chapter 1

The crisp cool autumn air blew softly through my long, wavy black hair. I kept a hold tight of my cloak to make sure my hood would stay in place. I made my way through the forest as snowing ash floated and fell to the cold hard ground. From a distance I could hear quaint footsteps and soft but hearable whispers. I never turned around I looked forward and started running, but I wasn't fast enough. A dark shadow grabbed my leg and I fell to the cold ground. I checked out my surroundings to see if there were any more of them…none accept the one. I repositioned my leg and loosened free of the shadows grasp. I jumped up and ducked down as a blast of dark energy made its way toward my head. I grabbed my medallion from my neck and opened it as the figure made a running leap at me. As I opened it a bright white shining light lit up the sky as the dark figure was sucked into the medallion. The light faded back into darkness as I took a long breath of relief.

"You haven't changed Zarrina have you?" a calm cool voice came from behind me.

"No and neither have you Reynolds. What purpose do you come here to find me?" I said turning around to see a tall man in a black coat and hat with a scarf wrapped around his mouth.

"I have a job for you to do and it could possibly change everything you know." He said

"To whom does this involve?" I said questioning my options.

"This is involving your own flesh and blood and his well-being." He said in a calm voice

"Reynolds I know the story I know what happened and I am upset still of what had happened, but I cannot help him." I said clenching my fist

"Do you not wish for him and her to be happy, do you not wish to save him the only brother you ever had" he said

"OF COURSE I WANT TO SAVE HIM, BUT HE WAS NEVER THERE TO SAVE ME! SO MANY NIGHTS I CRIED WANTING TO BE IN HIS ARMS AND TELL HIM HE WAS THE BEST BROTHER IN THE WORLD AND THAT I WAS SORRY, HE MAY BE MY BROTHER BUT HE HATES ME AND HE WAS NEVER THERE FOR ME!" I said falling to my knees starting to cry.

Reynolds came and kneeled to my side. "Zarrina you were only a couple of months old when your father abandoned you. Your brother does not blame you for your mother's death like your father. He actually misses you very much even if he doesn't remember you that well and if you remember I brought you here when you were young. You see he never got the chance to be your brother. If you do this you can save your brother and be with him forever. He and she can be rid of this nightmare and everyone can be happy again, but you have to help. They are both counting on you." He said patting his hand on my shoulder.

"Alright what do I have to do…What do I have to do to save Varen!" I said clenching my fist harder.

"Go to her world and find her. Tell her you know how to find and bring Varen back. Tell her you are his sister and that there is hope, but that you two must work together if you want any hope to bring him back. Now open a portal to her world and I will take care of the rest. If you need me just say the word Aguarine." He leaned in and gave me a hug.

I gave him a reassuring nod and opened a portal. I gave Reynolds one last glance and entered the portal to the world of my past where I must find her. The one my brother longs for…Isobel.
