Chapter 3: Mysterious Fighter
(Emilie P. O. V)
Great. I'm being tracked again. I should have expected something like this, in fact, I did, but not so soon. Not when Selena and Emmett are still just children. I thought I would be okay for now. Demons and other creatures came to get me, but none of them came in groups larger than five, so things were okay. But now a whole army is after me?
The life of a Golden Flower.
"Momma be careful!" I heard Emmett say frantically.
"Huh?" I asked at the exact moment I felt a stinging pain go through my index finger as the skin was sliced open. I winced and stared down at the cutting board. I moved the knife away from my bleeding finger and went over to the sink where I placed my finger under the warm water.
Emmett ran over to me and hugged my leg. "Are you okay, Momma?" he asked, his reddish brown eyes watching me with intense worry.
I smiled and nodded. "Yeah." I pulled my already healed finger out from under the water and showed my son. "See? Good as new."
But Emmett held his pout and wouldn't release my leg from his tight hug. "Momma's acting strangely," he murmured as he glanced down at the floor sadly.
"Strangely?" I asked.
Emmett nodded. "Ever since Mister Snake appeared and said people were coming. Are you worried, Momma? Don't worry because Father will protect you. I will too, okay?"
I crouched down to Emmett's height, his arms finally releasing me. I smiled at him and placed my hand on the top of his head.
"Thank you," I muttered. "But don't worry about me. Your Momma is a strong girl," I giggled. "I can take on anything life throws at me."
Emmett smiled at those words and nodded. "Yeah."
"Now, when those people come, you know exactly what to do, right?" I asked.
Emmett nodded with confidence as he saluted to me like a soldier in battle. "Yes, ma'am. Take Selena and hide in the new place. Don't come out until Momma or Father comes to get us."
"And if the battle escalates?" I inquired, my mind begging that the battle wouldn't and the children wouldn't have to go to plan B.
"Do the spell Father taught me and teleport to Uncle Undertaker."
"Good boy," I praised and kissed Emmett's forehead. "Now go play with your sister so I can finish making you two lunch."
He nodded and ran out the room.
I sighed and went back to making lunch.

"You know, that is very annoying," I grumbled as the baby gurgled in my arms and waved tiny hands in the air.
"No. Those demons going after the Golden Flower."
"Would you like for me to get rid of them before they can reach her?"
"Yeah. And make sure you make destroying them entertaining for us. Isn't that right?" I asked the baby in my arms playfully and smiled when he giggled.

"Your aim is off," Sebastian commented as we trained in the mansion's large basement. I swear, we could fit like five elephants down here. When I first saw the basement, I was shocked one could be so big.
I sucked my teeth and stared at the target in front of me. "Aurea testa explosione!" I still was unable to hit the damn bull's eye!
"Your mind is not clear right now, is it?" Sebastian asked as he walked over to my side and stared at the stupid target from my view. "Usually you hit the center right away, and more than once."
"I know. That's what makes me even more mad," I grumbled. "Aurea testa explosione!" I shouted again, but still missed. "Damn it!"
Sebastian grabbed my wrist and stared at my palm. "Your hands are starting to hurt, correct?"
I pulled my hand away angrily. Whenever I used my abilities a lot, my hands actually began to sting a bit, but it only happens when I use my abilities way more than usual, like right now. I've been training for four hours straight, but I still can't hit the damn bull's eye!
"I'm fine," I lied.
"What are you so worried about, Emilie?"
I glared at the ground.
"Everyone," I muttered. "A group of demons is coming, so this won't just be a regular battle."
"You are thinking about the incident four years ago," Sebastian said, his voice low.
I glanced up into his handsome face, and scolded myself mentally as my eyes began to burn with tears, but I couldn't help it. My body began to shake as I stared down at the ground and began to remember that awful day when so many died.
"I feel sick," I whispered, my voice sounding choked and shaky at the same time.
Sebastian pulled me into his arms and held me tightly as my throat constricted. I felt like I was going to throw up. The images continued to flash through my mind and I squeezed my eyes shut as I clutched the front of Sebastian's shirt.
I won't ever be able to get over that day, will I? It's forever burned into my memory. The scar that will never heal.
Sebastian grabbed my chin and made me look up at him as his lips crushed against mine. His arm that was wrapped around my waist tightened until it was practically impossible for us to be any closer. I cupped his face in my hands and brought our lips closer, just as tight as our bodies were.
Unfortunately, the passionate kiss was quickly interrupted by the basement door swinging open from the top of the stairs.
"Momma! Daddy! Uncle Undertaker is here!" Selena shouted.
Sebastian and I quickly moved away from one another, even though Selena wouldn't be able to see us from where we stood in the basement.
"We will be there in a moment," Sebastian said.
Selena agreed and closed the door.
I wiped away the stupid tears left behind and looked up at Sebastian. "Why do you think Undertaker is here?" I asked.
Sebastian shrugged, his eyes locked on my lips. He bent down and kissed me again, but I was the one to stop this kiss this time.
"Later," I chuckled and Sebastian smirked.
"Right," he said.
When we went back upstairs and into the living room, everyone was already there, including Snake. He had been with us for two days now, and I'll admit, my grudge against him was beginning to fade. Snake was actually a pretty cool guy, but if he scares my precious babies again, we're going to have some serious problems again.
"My~, you two ~have grown," Undertaker chuckled as he crouched down in front of the twins and placed his hands on either of their heads. "Looking more and ~more like your~ mother and father~ everyday~."
Selena and Emmett smiled and Undertaker glanced over at Sebastian and I.
"~And you two have~ not changed ~at all~," he said to us.
"Nice to see you again too, Uncle," I said, the word still sounding weird to me.
"I have come ~with odd news~."
"Odd?" Ciel asked. "How so?"
I sat down on the empty love seat as Selena and Emmett sat on either sides of me and leaned into my sides. Sebastian stood by the love seat as we all paid attention to what Undertaker had to say.
"It would seem~ that the ~army has disappeared~."
"Disappeared? How the hell?" Romeo asked bitterly.
"Language around the kids," I said to my friend.
"Oops. My bad," he said and covered his mouth.
"But Romeo is right," I added and glanced at Undertaker. "How did they just disappear?"
Undertaker's grin grew wider. "It would seem~ they were ~ambushed. By who~? I ~am not sure~," he said as he intertwined his fingers together.
"So . . . No battle then?" I asked.
He shook his head.
Relief washed over me, and I couldn't help but smile. "Thank goodness."
"But now we have to worry about who took the army down," Sebastian stated, and my relief went away. There went my happiness quickly.
"True," I sighed.
"But since the person took down the army, doesn't that mean he or she isn't an enemy to us?" Jonathan asked.
Ciel shook his head. "For all we know, the person got rid of competition and is ready to attack himself."
"Is there anything else you know?" I asked Undertaker.
"Not~ quite yet~. But I ~am working on that~."
"Does this mean I can come back? Asks Oscar," Snake muttered from where he stood by Undertaker's side.
Undertaker grinned over at Snake. "I believe~ you would be ~better off here~."
"Yes," I heard the twins whisper to one another happily, they had grown attached to Snake quickly, after he apologized to them.
Undertaker tipped his hat. "I will take~ my ~leave now~."
"Bye bye, Uncle Undertaker!" the twins said in unison and waved goodbye with small, chubby hands as Undertaker left.
With him gone, the room fell into silence.
"Where do we begin?" I spoke up, breaking that silence.
"We should wait and see what Undertaker finds, and work from there," Ciel said.
We all nodded.
"Now," Selena giggled and glanced up at her father. "Can we have cake?"
"Oh, yeah!" I chimed happily and looked up at Sebastian. "Can we?!"
Ciel sighed. "Sometimes I wonder if Sebastian had two children or three."
I glared at him. "Hey, don't try to act like you don't want cake either."
Ciel looked away slowly, his cheeks flushing. Ha! Got him!
"Cake time! Cake time!" the twins chimed in unison.

I glanced up at the full moon as a soft wind blew by.
"I wonder how she's doing right now," I muttered.
"Are you Myth Mezzanotte?" a voice spoke up behind me.
I glanced over my shoulder at a person I had never seen before, but I instantly knew I didn't like. In the person's eyes was that same gleam Momma, no, Jade had in her eyes. This person is bad.
I rose to my feet and glared at the person. "How do you know my name?" I asked.
"I was wondering if you could help me out."
"No," I said flatly.
"You know about the Golden Flower, yes?"
I didn't answer.
"I want you to help me get her."
"No," I said again. "I refuse. Emilie is my friend."
"Emilie? Is that her name?" the person laughed with excitement. "How pretty! I love it! It sounds like a name given to a doll!"
This person disturbs me. I quickly turned away and ran off.
"Hey! Wait!" the person shouted behind me, but I kept running.
All of a sudden, something wrapped around my ankle and I was yanked down to the ground. I groaned and stared down at my captured leg at what had grabbed me.
"You're pretty fast," the person said and approached me slowly. "That's useful."

I hid behind Sebastian as the stupid insect began to slowly descend from the ceiling.
"Kill the spider!" I said and pointed at it from behind Sebastian. "Kill it, kill it!"
He nodded and squished the thing quickly.
"Does this house have an infestation?" I asked and looked around. Stupid spiders. Why do they have to exist in the first place?
"As long as they stay away from us," Sebastian mumbled, his eyes growing dark with hatred.
I stared at him confusingly. "Sebastian?"
He shook his head. "Nothing."
Alright! Another chapter. Hope you all enjoyed it.
