Summonsed by SilEnigmaArts Summonsed by SilEnigmaArts
~ The rain had stopped mid afternoon and as the sun went down the mist had drifted over the moors, its finger reaching out and touching all in its way.
Kalina was glad it had stopped raining for tonight was to be a special night.

When she had come downstairs this morning to feed Orion she had seen a note that has been slipped under the back door sometime during the night.
It was written in the most beautiful caligraphic hand and read "Crosswyk Hall...Midnight" and was signed by none other than the great Warlock Draevan himself.
She knew this note would come but when, she did not know.

Kalina had always known that she was different to other children that she knew. For she seemed to be able to make things happen just by thinking about them. This special ability had, as a child, often gotten her into real pickles but somehow mother always knew when this happened and came to her rescue "fixing" things. It was on the night of her fifth birthday that her mother had come to her room. The moon had cast the room in a beautiful blue hue, something that Kalina had always loved. Mother had sat on the edge of her bed and it was on that night that she had come to know who she was and what her special abilities meant. From that moment on, Kalina had been taught to hone and control her special abilities, learning when and how to use them but most of all learning that her "special gift" was one that had to be kept a secret from the world. To hold this secret was a special bond they shared as mother and daughter and more often than not as co-conspirators on many occasion in her life as she grew up, blossoming both in her incredible beauty and in her special powers.
Through her younger years she had remembered certain nights that her mother would tuck her into bed and tell Kalina she was sprinkling her with magic dust to take her to magical places far away in other lands as she slept. Places she would feel safe in because Orion would always be with her, keeping her safe and sharing in her wonders. It was on these nights that her mother would visit the Coven to be with her kin, kin that her mother had told her would be her kin when her time came. The only thing she need to know was the name ... Draevan.

It had been three months since she had stood over the open grave weeping uncontrollably as they lowered her mothers casket into the ground.
Orion was in her arms, nudging her face and licking away her tears, purring as if to comfort her as they both grieved together. On the night of her burial a single red rose was placed at her doorstep with a note that had one word on it. That word was .........Kin.



All day she had been like a cat on a hot tin roof, pacing and restless. So many thoughts and emotions were going through her mind she just could not relax. Orion had been with her the entire day, following her from room to room and when Kalina would actually sit down, Orion would jump on her lap purring and nudging her as if to reassure her all would be ok.

Finally the sun set and even though she fed Orion, it seemed, like her, he was not hungry. Her stomach felt like a whole rabble of butterflies were doing cartwheels inside her. The clock had just struck the half hour.....it was time to go.
She went to her mothers room and took out the cape her mother used to wear on those "special nights". She held it up to her face, deeply inhaling the beautiful scent of her mother into her nostrils.
A single tear slid down her face as she whispered " I miss you so much mother, please help me to be strong".
Orion was sitting on her mothers bed treading his paws deep into the down bedspread. She went over to him lifting him into her arms and kissed him.
"It's time Orion....please keep me safe" she said as she carried him downstairs to the back door.

And now as the mist seeps through the grounds, Orion watches her with protective eyes as she walks down the lane heading toward Crosswyk Hall. Tonight her life changes forever for tonight is the night she has been "Summonsed"....~
