I started crying, my fear becoming real. Everyone was dead because I couldnâ€™t stop her, she killed everyone just because she thought they were weak. The ice was caving in around me, she had control now. The more my body freezes the more she gains power over me. I sat in the corner, knowing I would never see my friends again or Seth. He always looked after me whenever he could, even after she tried to kill him. I curled up crying, this was all my fault, I couldnâ€™t control my powers. All I could think about was how I was too weak to stop her, all my friends and my love will die because of me.
I could hear Seth calling me, I could hear the worry in his voice. I slowly stood up, walking towards his voice. The ice melted when I touched it, I was gaining more control over her. I kept walking towards Sethâ€™s voice, my heartbeat becoming stronger. Soon a light blinded me, I took a deep breathe in, coughing up water.
My voice was horsey, my eye sight was blurry but I could make out Seth kneeling beside me. I slowly sat up, Seth hugging me. I felt how cold his skin was and how wet he was.
â€œSeth your ice cold! We need to get you warm and dry! Why did you follow me, I was trying to protect you!â€
â€œIâ€™m not letting the only thing worth living for in my life die, even if it means I donâ€™t survive.â€
I had tears coming out of my eyes, no one has ever said that to me, I looked into his eyes, noticing something was bugging him.
â€œSethâ€¦â€¦â€¦.. Are the others fine?.................. Did sheâ€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€
â€œI-I donâ€™t know, I ran after you, leaving the others.â€
â€œWe have to get back to them then, I have to make sure she didnâ€™t kill them!â€
â€œTora, who are you talking about?â€
â€œThe oneâ€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦. Who took over me â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦ She is dangerousâ€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦ Iâ€™m scared she will take over againâ€¦â€¦â€¦â€
Seth hugged me tighter, I buried my head into his chest, listening to his heartbeat.
â€œShe wonâ€™t Tora, I promise.â€
I felt him starting to shiver from the cold, winter was almost here, it is the strongest time of year for me, but I can survive the cold, Seth and the others canâ€™t.
â€œWe need to get back to the others and get you warm. You will freeze to death otherwise.â€
Seth didnâ€™t argue with me, he probably could hear the worry in my voice. I got then helped him up, we started walking through the forest, not sure if we were going the right way but we had to try. I gave him my jacket trying to get him warm. Soon we came upon and old abandoned house, looked like no one lived in it for decades. I carefully went in, it was warmer than outside, we wandered the rooms, finding anything that could help us out. I found a room with the chimney, I gathered some wood and started to make a fire. It started going, Seth sat in front of it, warming up.
â€œThank you, for rescuing me.â€
â€œLike I said, Iâ€™m not letting you die.â€
I kissed him gently, his lips warm against my lips. I wasnâ€™t going to let her take him or any of my friends away from me, even if they were afraid of me.
â€œLetâ€™s hope we all can regroup soon, I fear there is much danger with winter coming.â€
