Dorian continued to meditate in silence. Kerr looked up and saw Nora give him a shrug and a reassuring smile. Kerr sat on the edge of the couch, listening intently for the others. When he and Whitley had gotten downstairs, they rounded the stairs into the living room. He thought he’d heard someone moving in the darkness, but Whitley pulled his arm and led him to the library.
He wasn’t sure where the others had ended up, but he knew they would hear Dorian calling to them. Nora got up and came over to them, smiling warmly.
I’ve been waiting for you guys. They’re going to share the prophecies with us now. Dorian said he feels that something is off, and the sooner we all know what is to come, the sooner we will be prepared to face it.” She laughed lightly. “I’ve been waiting for this for a very long time! The prophecies are the only part of our history they haven’t taught me about.”
Kerr hadn’t thought much about how different this was for Nora. She was used to the abilities, she was used to the strange history they all shared, she was the only one who was raised in a safe and happy environment. The sadness and jealousy he felt thinking about how much he’d missed out on was much more intense than any he had experienced in his life thus far.
“You are so lucky.” He blurted out.
Nora gave him a hurt and confused look. “So are you.”
Kerr was about to ask what she meant by that, when the library door opened and Thatcher came in, followed closely by Hadley.
Thatchers eyebrows were knit together in concern and Hadley looked a little panicked. Kerr was on his feet in an instant, he had already seen it.
“Are you sure it was him?” Kerr asked Thatcher catching him off guard.
“No, I’m not. But it was strange, I felt a connecting. Like a thread was strung between us.” He answered.
“What’s going on?” Dorian asked.
The library door opened one more time and Romulus entered, followed closely by Tahlia. They wore the same look of panic that was still etched on the faces of the other two Evolved. It was clear Absalom had in fact made an appearance.
