Hope you like the third chapter :D read and enjoy
Skye had been on bed-rest for what felt like ages, but it had only been a week. After her wounds got infected she had to stay in the infirmary for longer. Magnus came in to visit her one morning, and told her that she was well enough to leave the infirmary. Skye hurriedly got dressed, in the only clothes she owned, which was a pair of blood-stained black jeans, a black long-sleeved shirt, combat boots and a pair of gloves, one reaching her elbow and one reaching her wrist. Her jeans were torn in various places, and so was her top. When Magnus saw her she immediately said that she would take Skye shopping.
After the shopping spree, Skye got a grand tour of the Sanctuary, and she even got her own temporary bedroom. She met everyone that worked at the Sanctuary, and she felt like they were friends gave Skye a tour of where the abnormals lived, even the dangerous ones in the SHOE. The one abnormal that Skye loved the most was the huge fire elemental, that looked like a beast. He was deadly and no-one could enter his concrete/titanium enforced room, because they would get burned to a crisp. Except Skye. Seen as she was a fire elemental, and technically made of fire, he couldn't hurt her. The first time she ever visited him, he had tried to burn her, and tried again and again until he just couldn't be bothered anymore. Skye liked spending time with him, although he couldn't talk, he felt like a companion, a friend, to her.
"Woah Skye! What are you doing?" Henry shouted at her, when he saw her come out of where the fire beast lives.
"Just visiting Kaminari," Skye said happily.
"Kaminari? You named him?" Henry shook his head, "and anyway, you can't go in there, it's to dangerous."
"Fire elemental, remember?" Skye said, flipping her red hair to one side, "His fire can't harm me.
"Oh, ok. But still be careful." said Henry.
"Sure thing, Hank." Skye said as she walked away, but he knew full well that she wasn't going to.
In a way, Skye reminded Henry of Ashley. Skye was free-spirited, and didn't care what anyone else thought about her. She had only been in the Sanctuary for a week, and already everyone liked her. She was just a like-able person. Henry smiled to himself as he walked back to his lab.
Skye walked to the library that afternoon. She loved the library, it was a place were she could relax, where she could be alone. She also found plenty of books about fairies and fire elementals. But when she opened the library doors, she sighed as she saw that someone was already there. It was a black haired man, using a ladder on rails attached to the bookshelves to reach books up higher. He was balancing a stack of books in one hand, and a glass of red wine in the other. (i bet you can guess who it is ;D) He looked down at her as the door opened, and smiled.
"Well hello there," he said,
"Um, hi?" Skye replied.
"You must be the new arrival Helen was telling me about, the fire elemental, right?"
"Yep, that's me."
"Huh, interesting. You must be very unique to have a power like that. It almost makes me the tiniest bit jealous. Almost."
"I like to think so. Apparently my kind, elementals, are very rare. Bullshit. There used to be more of us than humans. Those were the days." Skye said, with that far-off look in her eyes.
The man laughed, "Oh, where are my manners? My name is Nikola Tesla. Perhaps you've heard of me?"
"My name's Skye Miller, and don't flatter yourself. I've been hiding away from civilization for a very long time, so I don't know half the apparently famous people you talk about." she answered.
"You're a feisty one. I like that." he smiled.
Skye tried to not act creeped out, so she just smiled, and Nikola went back to whatever he was doing before. Skye scanned the books on the shelves up higher, looking for something to read.
"Do you want me to get a book for you?" Nikola asked, seeing that she wanted something out of her reach (or was it?).
"No, I'm fine thanks," she said, as she spread her wings and flew up to the top shelf.
"Impressive." Tesla said, studying her wings. He pushed the ladder across the rails until he was right next to her. He went to touch her wings, and she immediately burnt his hand.
"Oww, that wasn't nice!" he said.
"Well don't touch my wings," she said, extinguishing the fire that had ignited in her hand.
"You could have told me that before." Tesla complained.
Before Skye could reply, the library doors opened, and in walked Magnus.
"Nikola! I've been searching all over for you. We have work to do." Magnus stopped, realizing that Skye was there and Nikola was holding his burnt but healing hand."I hope you weren't giving Skye any trouble." Magnus said, eyebrows raised.
"Me? Trouble? Of course not." Nikola scoffed.
"Don't worry, Magnus. If he was it would be more than just a hand that was burned." Skye smiled. "But you're healing anyway, so it's alright. You're a vampire, right?"
"Part vampire actually. How did you know?" Nikola asked.
"I'm a telepath."
"Really? What am I thinking now."
"Jeez, I was only joking. Magnus told me about you yesterday. Apparently you're arrogant, obnoxious..."
"That's enough Skye." Magnus said sternly.
"Woops, I said too much." Skye leant towards Nikola anyway and whispered into his ear,"and by the way, she said you were too charming for you're own good, and cute."
Nikola looked at Magnus, and winked.
"Oh bloody hell, what did you tell him?" Magnus asked.
Skye smiled sheepishly. "Well, I'd better be going." she grabbed a couple of books and flew straight for the door.
"Skye..."Magnus called after her, but she was gone.
"Well, Helen," Nikola said as he climbed down the ladder. "Aren't you looking beautiful, as always," he said, grabbing her hand.
"Dear lord,"she said, rolling her eyes.
I loved the ending, and giggled the whole time I was writing it!
