Cali grabbed the spell quickly and turned to run out the door but the man dissolved into a black mist, snaking across the floor and solidifying infront of her. Cali screamed and stumbled backwards, tripping and landing hard on her butt. The man reached down and picked her up by the throat, she struggled against his grip but he held her tight. Cali opened her mouth to scream again but instead foreign words poured out of her mouth and the mans blood red eyes widened in shock moments before he exploded into tiny little red shards of broken glass which dissolved in seconds, leaving no evidence that he was there besides the broken windows. Cali hit the floor and stared in shock at what had just happened.
Al stared at Cali then at the place where the man stood and disappeared. It took him a while before realization hit him in the face and he quickly crawled to Cali. "Are you alright, Calalily? He didn't do anything weird to you, did he?" Al asked, clearly worried and checked her neck for any injuries.
Cali looked up at Al, “N-no… I-I’m alright..” she mumbled as he checked her neck, it felt as if it were going to be bruised but other than that she was okay, just stunned.
Al sat back and sighed in relief. She was fine. She's going to be fine, he told himself. He sat there for a moment in silence.. Wait, silence? Al got up and walked to the broken window. Those black creatures were gone. Completely gone. Al slumped to his knees and sighed heavily, resting the back of his head against the wall. He was so glad that was over.
Cali crawled over to her bed and pulled herself on top of it, curling into a ball beside her pillows she started to cry quietly. The shock was starting to fade away and reality was taking its place. We could have died! She thought to herself as her courageous façade melted, leaving her feeling weak and vulnerable. We could have died! Oh gosh, what have we gotten ourselves into… and this probably wasn’t even the worst of it… what’s going to happen when we have to face the man that Dana was talking about?!?
Al glanced at Cali curled up in her bed and it looked like she was crying. Worried she might be hurt, he got up from the floor and sat at the edge of her bed. "Hey," he said softly, "Are you alright?"
Cali nodded keeping her face hidden in a pillow ,”W-we could have died…” She mumbled into the pillow case, hiccupping as more tears poured down her face. “I-I’m sorry… I shouldn’t be crying…”
Al breathed deeply and moved the hair sticking to the side of her face. "No, you shouldn't be crying. I'd understand if you're scared but we're alive now so you shouldn't be crying."
Cali sat up and nodded again, taking a deep breath to stop herself from crying before pulling the rest of her hair out of her face. “Sorry…”
"You don't need to apologize," Al said, patting her head like a dog. He jumped off the bed and walked towards the door. "I'll vaccum the glass shards so don't step over there," he said, pointing to the mess by the window that was broken then went to search for the vaccum.
“Okay…” Cali said and wiped the tears from her face before getting up and grabbing some clothes, taking them into the bathroom. She brushed her hair and fixed her braid before changing into the dark jeans and black top to match the ribbon in her hair, pulling on some clean socks and brushing her teeth quickly. She headed out of her room and down the stairs, looking for the other window that she heard break.
Al vaccumed the last bit of the glass up right when he heard Cali walk out of the bathroom. He stood up and wiped his forehead like that was the hardest thing he did all day and heard his stomach give a low roaring growl. "I hear ya, I hear ya," Al grumbled as he pat his stomach as if that would calm the imaginary beast down. He headed towards the kitchen to look for food and dragged the vaccum with him.
((Ooops, sooo sorry!!!!))
Cali had found the other broken window in the living room and sighed, deciding to leave it she went into the kitchen and starting to make them some breakfast. Glancing over as Al came into the kitchen she motioned for him to take a seat at the kitchen table while she made scrambled eggs, bacon and toast.
