Take Caution

"What do you mean? How can our past be effected, let alone at stake?" Winnie asked, confused, eyebrows crumpling, she brushed a strawberry curl out of her face, but it just bounced back into place.

"Someone, somewhere is going to attempt to gain power, power over the world." Many eyebrows raised at that, eyes widened and John, Galen, and Theirry's faces went to stone.

"I'm not sure who yet but I do know that they plan to get rid of us; I think they think that we will get in the way of their control of the world, which, seeing that we know this much already, we probably would," I smiled at that but I was the only one.

"Do you know how they mean to 'dispose' of us yet?" Hannah asked, she made the word sound like a curse.

I should my head sadly and said "I haven't heard anything about that, but it can't be good." Theirry grimaced in agreement.

"Now, I'm telling you this because I want you all to promise me that you will be careful and alert 'til more news comes," I said, looking intently at each and every individual sitting around the Victorian table.

"Kellen, I-"

"Promise me," I repeated, cutting Thierry off short. He grimaced, his old eyes staring down at the table.

"I promise," he said after a moment. Murmured "I promise"s followed his and everyone looked at eachother with meaningful looks, and I understood why. The one who wishes to control the world could easily mean to kill us off one by one. This meeting might be the last time we see one another. I severly hoped it wasn't.

"Now, you may get back to what you were doing, thank you for listening" I murmured and everyone stood up.

"Be careful!" I called after them as they started to depart in ones and twos til it was only Galen and I left standing in the room.

"I do have a question though," Galen said, pulling me to him.

"Mmmm and what would that be?" I said, looking up at him.

"Who or where in the world did you find out that someone wanted to get rid of us and control the world? That's not the usual gossip you'll hear on the streets" he pointed out with a grin but still very serious.

I grinned back myscheviously and said "I have my ways." He laughed and hugged me, but it seemed more like he was trying to shield me.
