It was a week after her twelfth birthday when Sky felt it.
She had been lying in the grass in their backyard when she heard her neighbor’s voice. Turning her head towards the direction of the house, but no one was outside. Her eyebrows furrowed in confusion but she returned to her solitude. However, her mother’s voice cut into her thoughts, adding on top of the neighbor’s voice. Sky stood to her feet, taking in her surroundings. Both her mother and the neighbor were inside so how in the earth did she hear them?
A shot of pain went through her head and she winced. Suddenly, as if that was a signal, a plethora of voices began to seep inside her head. So loud, so meshed together. A pang of both excitement and annoyance passed over her. It was here. It was finally here. But god, did it hurt… Was it supposed to hurt?
Daemon. She needed to find her brother. He would know what to do. Clutching her head, Sky rushed inside the house and up the stairs. Without knocking, she barged in on her brother, assuring herself that her problem was far bigger than whatever he was doing at the moment. “Dae.” Sky winced as she walked closer to her. Another pain shot through her head and the voices got louder and louder. “I-It’s here.”
