Revealed Secrets/Part Three

by scongrove


Previously...

When Jace revealed to Tessa about his recurring dreams of her death, she reassured him it was just nerves about becoming a father. With Jace’s confession weighing heavily on her mind, Tessa couldn’t sleep. Instead of tossing and turning all night, afraid to wake Jace, she quietly slipped out of bed and went downstairs for something to eat. To her surprise, Casey Barton was standing at the stove making a pot of soup.

Meanwhile, as the Breedline Covenant sleeps, Sebastian and his twin brother Thomas sneaks inside through a portal. Not only do they have the task of retrieving his sons Arius and Tidus, but they are also ordered by Lilith to kidnap Tessa.


After a hot bowl of soup, Tessa decides to go back to bed. Before she makes it back to her room, she is caught off guard when someone grabs her from behind. Before she can scream out, a hand covers her mouth, and something sharp jabs into her arm. Feeling dizzy as if she'd been drugged, Tessa uses her telepathic ability and calls out to Jace.     
              

Continued...

After Casey had got to the top of the staircase, he headed through the hallway and suddenly saw a bright light outside Arius and Tidus’s nursery. Just as he rushed forward, two men that were identical stepped through what appeared to be a portal and vanished. To his utter disbelief, one of them had the twins, and the other carried Tessa in his arms. She looked as if she was unconscious. And then out of nowhere, Jace’s cat appeared, staring in Casey’s direction with glowing green eyes.

****

Jace came awake when he heard the faintest whisper in his mind. It was Tessa’s voice. Fear and panic blew over him as he searched the bed for her. And when he found her side empty, it left him unsettled and panicked. In the dark room, he scrambled out of bed and flipped on the light.

Jace slipped into a pair of jeans hurriedly and called out to Tessa in desperation.

When there was no answer, he rushed into the bathroom, but she wasn’t there. He turned in a rapid circle, calling out her name over and over, but she wasn’t anywhere in the room.

The sound of someone pounding on his door sent him sprinting to the noise. When he sprung the door wide open, Casey stood outside, his face positively gray.

“What’s wrong?” Jace asked, looking at Casey with wide eyes. “Where’s Tessa?” 
  
When Casey told him what he’d seen, there was a helpless tone to his voice, one totally at odds as he looked at Jace’s expression.

As Jace struggled to breathe, he brought one hand to his heart.

Casey took a few steps back. “Jace, are you all right?”

With his hand gripped around the doorknob, Jace squeezed until it crumbled into pieces and fell to the floor. Fury clouded his vision, and all he saw were images of Tessa the last time Sebastian had kidnapped her. She’d been unconscious and bound to a bed... naked.

Every marking instinct in Jace’s body fired off at once, and there was no holding back the rumbling growl that roared out of his lungs.

As the noise blasted through the Covenant, everyone was awake and out into the hall. Tim and Drakon were the first to see the commotion coming from Jace’s room. They saw Casey with his body flattened against the wall, his eyes full of terror.

All the blood left Tim’s face. Fear knotted his gut and panic rolled over him like a tidal wave. No. Oh dear God, no. Not again, he thought.

Casey sucked in his breath and looked at Drakon and Tim fearfully.

When Drakon drew near, Jace whipped his head around and bared his teeth in a snarl. 

Drakon stopped in his tracks and held up his hand. “It’s me, Jace,” he said in a soothing voice. “Listen to me. You’ve got to calm down.”

As Drakon tried to persuade him to relax, the words did not register far enough for Jace to decipher through his agonizing pain. With his eyes locked on Drakon, they were glowing like two shimmering diamonds.

“You’re pissing him off,” Casey muttered in a low voice.

Jace jerked his head in Casey’s direction, his fingers balled, seething with rage.

“Crap,” Casey muttered under his breath. 

Jem stepped in and silently motioned Drakon back. And then he slowly moved closer, so he stood face-to-face with his brother. Jace was pale and shaking. He looked pissed... angrier than Jem had seen him in a long time. But he also seemed emotionally raw and pain stricken. 

The others gathered back silently, all waiting for Jem to calm Jace before the Beast within him became unleashed.

Sensing Jace’s pain, Jem tried to soothe him, sending him waves of comfort telepathically. S’okay, brother, Jem said, desperately trying to connect with Jace. Gather your strength, Jace. Breathe and calm yourself. Whatever happened, we can deal with it together. I’ll help you get through this.

With rage still reflecting in his stare, Jace looked away from Jem and refocused on Casey, his wide stance suggesting he might lunge forward at any moment.

Jem put his hand out, halting Jace’s movement as he stepped forward. Whatever it took, he had to reason with Jace. He knew Jace was in there... somewhere. Having to fight his own brother would be his worst nightmare.

Listen to me, Jace, Jem pleaded. You can do this. Do you hear me? Please... don’t let the Beast take control. 

Jace cocked his head, glowing eyes blinking. And then he glanced back and forth at Jem and Casey as indecision rolled through him. The last thing he wanted to do was hurt the ones he loved, but he was hanging by a thread, the Beast within him clawing at his insides.

Everyone fell silent as minutes passed, or maybe it was just a couple of heartbeats. Their expressions were tense as they kept their eyes locked on Jace.   

He took several deep breaths in an effort to clear his mind. He felt so damn helpless. And then he heard Tessa’s voice again.

Jace... help me.

Oh God, the thought of Tessa’s pain, and the dreadful fear she was in was more than he could bear. A sick knot formed in Jace’s stomach. He had to get to her.

Rage exploded in his mind until he shook and his eyes narrowed into slits. A cold gust blew around Jem as if Jace had pushed the air at him.

At this point, Jem didn’t care if his brother lashed out at him. Then again, he was running on nervous energy, so he probably wasn’t thinking wise when he put his hand out to Jace in another effort to calm him.

Without warning, a voice yelled, “Stop!”

The two brothers stopped and turned toward the voice at the same time.

“Please, Jace,” Cassie pleaded, her voice laced with tears. “Someone’s going to get hurt if you don’t calm down.” 

Jace growled low in his throat.

“Cassie... no,” Jem warned.

“He won’t hurt me,” she said moving closer. “He’s still my brother.”

Jace’s white eyes flickered at her as she approached him. “Jace,” she murmured, keeping her voice low, focusing on how close their sibling relationship had always been. “It’s me. Cassie.”

Jace heaved a deep breath.

When Drakon lunged forward, Tim grabbed his arm and said, “Drakon, hang on. She’s talking him down.”

Jace’s lip curled up into a snarl as Drakon’s movement caught his attention.

“Look at me, Jace,” Cassie said without varying her tone or turning away. She kept her eyes locked on her brother. “It’s okay. No one is going to hurt you.” She slowly reached out to him. “I love you, big brother.”

When her hand came into contact with his arm, silence fell as if time had stopped. Jem felt the shift in the air first. And then everything surrounding them changed as if the wind was blowing inside and the sun fell from the sky.

It was too late, Jem thought. He knew Jace was already gone. He’d surrendered his body over to the Beast.

As Jace opened his mouth, a raw scream erupted into the air.

Cassie covered her ears and closed her eyes, cutting off the sound of her brother’s agonizing screams.

The burst of energy that followed was so intense it shattered all the stain glass windows above the staircase. Shards splintered and scattered while everyone ducked for cover. The floor underneath shook with such force; the magnitude resembled a high-level earthquake. 

Pieces of furniture in the room whipped around Jace, and a bright light blasted from his body. There was another screeching howl, and then the light disappeared taking Jace with it. The unforeseen wind came to a halt, the furniture came crashing down, and the trembling floor stopped.   
   
Jem pushed his way into Jace’s room. As he looked inside, he tried to remove the haze of confusion that was clouding his mind. Jace was gone... vanished. And then he heard a soft meow. Focusing on the sound, Jem was baffled when he saw Jace’s cat at his feet. Unable to comprehend the unexplained occurrence that had just happened, he slowly turned around, his eyes meeting the stares of everyone in the hallway.

They stood in silence, gathered around in utter disbelief. Mia wrung her hands repeatedly despite Angel trying her best to calm her.

Kyle wrapped his arm around Celina while Drakon moved next to Cassie and tangled his fingers with hers. Alexander and Tim were standing next to one another completely shocked, and Casey stood alone, bewilderment and worry etched into his tired features.

Jem wasn’t prepared for this as everyone looked to him for information. He turned to Casey and said, “What the hell happened?”

“It was Sebastian,” Casey said wearily, “and someone that looked identical to him. They took Tessa and the twins... and left through a portal.”

Jem whirled around, his gaze finding Celina. “I thought you put a spell on this Covenant to keep anyone from using a portal?”

“Another Wicca can break the spell,” she said in a serious tone, “one with a lot of power.”

Everyone’s mouth fell open. Cassie stepped forward and stared at Jem in frustration. “What about Jace? What happened to my brother?”

Jem lowered his head and grasped the back of his neck. He looked indecisive as if he wasn’t sure how to answer his sister’s question. He had no clue to what happened to Jace. Lifting his chin, he let out a weary sigh. “I don’t know, Cassie.”

“Shit,” Kyle cursed. “How did he just disappear?”

“Where could he have gone?” Cassie asked impatiently.

Jem ran a hand through his hair and stepped forward, his focus solely on his sister. As he reached out to her, his gut clenched. When he wrapped his arms around her, Cassie let out a soft cry and turned her face into his chest. Tears glimmered in Jem’s eyes as he thought of all the demon’s that still tormented Jace. Jem knew his twin was suffering. Maybe he’d never know the extent of agony that had chipped away at Jace over the years. But Jem knew his brother suffered because he saw the pain he tried to mask every single day.

Alexander looked agonized. His jaw tightened as he looked at Jem and Cassie. He saw the worry in their eyes, the helplessness they felt.

To Alexander’s surprise, Mia walked away from Angel, her eyes were troubled, and her hands shook as she moved next to him. “It’s going to be okay, Alexander,” she whispered, wiping her eyes. “We’ll find them.”

Relief swamped over Alexander’s face. He all but sagged. There was hope in her voice. He reached for her hand and said, “Thank you, Mia.”
 
When Jem pulled from Cassie’s embrace, he looked over his shoulder at Mia. As her gaze met him, she expressed hope and determination.  
  
Tim finally spoke out, his tone direct. “Let’s go find out what happened on the video surveillance. We’ll need more details on where to begin our search for Tessa and the twins.”

****

Drakon stared at the video screen and rewound the footage to start just after a bright light emerged from outside Tidus and Arius’s nursery.

As Jem came in, Drakon held up a hand in absent greeting before returning his attention back to the screen. Tim stood beside Drakon and stared up at the monitor. When Sebastian and Thomas came into view, Drakon frowned and then hit the keyboard to pause the video.

“Son of a—“ Jem said through gritted teeth. “Am I seeing what I think that is?”

“Can you zoom in on their faces?” Tim asked.

Drakon typed a rapid succession of commands, and the screen capture zoomed in as the picture sharpened.

“Holy shit,” Jem bit out. His gut knotted and his pulse started pounding until his head throbbed. “I don’t believe it. Casey was right. Sebastian has a twin.” 
 
Alexander walked over with Kyle following close behind. “What did you find out?” Kyle asked as he looked at Drakon.

Drakon gestured toward the image on the monitor. “Take a look for yourself.”

Kyle and Alexander stared at the screen in disbelief. Then Alexander’s eyes narrowed in confusion. “Sebastian is a twin?”

Jem glanced at Alexander and said, “Did you know anything about this?”

Alexander’s lips thinned in a tight line. “No, but I do know one thing for sure,” he paused and let out a deep breath, “I’m going to do everything in my power to put an end to this.”

Tim and Drakon looked at each other at the same time. And then Tim shifted in Jem’s direction. “You’ll need to notify your parents, Jem,” he said. “I’ll contact Kenneth. He needs to know about Tessa.”

To be continued...
 
 
 

 


Book of the Month contest entry


NOTE: This is not part of the chapter. A reference for terms and characters, especially for new readers:

BREEDLINE - A species of humans that have the ability to change from human form into a wolf. They are not like the old legend of the Lycanthropy myth. Breedline species can shift into their wolf at will. The moon has no power over them. They do not pass their ability to other humans with a bite or scratch like the Lycanthropy myth.
The Breedline gene is passed down to offsprings that are born identical twins. Although they live amongst human, their species must be kept secret.
In wolf form, they have super strength, speed, and heightened senses. Compared to humans, Breedlines have tremendous advantages when it comes to health. Their bodies heal fast and are not subject to illnesses or diseases. The only thing that slows their healing process is silver. It is their Kryptonite. Besides old age, a silver bullet to the brain is the only thing deadly to the species.
All males change into their wolf at the age of eighteen. Females do not go through the change until they make love to their Breedline bonded mate.

BREEDLINE TWINS - Identical twins that are born from either one or both parents of the Breedline species. They have a strong, unbreakable bond from birth, are born with telepathic abilities, and have the power to sense the other's emotions or injuries. In some cases, the bond between twins are so strong that if one dies, the other twin may pass on, especially if they don't have a mate.

BREEDLINE BONDING - The male Breedline spends their life in search of their bonded mate. When the male comes in contact with her, he instantly feels a simultaneous, desirable attraction and she becomes the most important thing in his life. He is there to love, protect, and cherish her until death. Once they are mated, they bond for life. It is possible for them to have more than one mate in their lifespan.

BELOVED - A word used by a Breedline to express the bond to their mate.

DOUBLE BONDED - In some cases, male Breedline twins bond with the same female, but one will carry a stronger bond. Usually one of them must sacrifice for the other twin.

BREEDLINE COVENANT - The Breedline species must live within the boundaries of a Covenant, which is only formed with their species. The Covenant is governed and ruled by a head council. The council keeps their laws in order and oversees the species population.

THE BREEDLINE QUEEN - Over centuries the Breedline Covenant is ruled by a true Queen. If there is no Queen living, the Covenants are governed by an appointed head council until another Queen is born. A Breedline Queen is born once every one hundred years. Her massive stature, black fur, and red eyes are the Queen's trademarks. Her alpha wolf has twice the strength, speed, and size of any Breedline. The Queen is expected to rule over all the Breedline Covenants where she will be respected and obeyed by all Breedline. This is their absolute True Law.

THE QUEENS RING - This ring has been passed down to all Breedline Queens for generations. When the new Queen places the ring on, it instantly shifts in size to fit her finger.

TRUE LAW - All Breedline Covenants have an ancient book of laws. If either sex disobeys the Breedline laws, they can be shunned, or no longer protected by their Covenant. If a Breedline takes another life out of revenge, or evil - other than protecting their life, and the life of another - they will never have the ability to shift back human and cast out as a rogue wolf.

ROGUE WOLF - A Breedline shunned by their Covenant for taking another life out of revenge or evil and forced to live as a wolf until death without the ability to change human again. Some rogue wolves form into packs, which can be dangerous for other Breedline species.

RED (BLOOD) MOON - When the full moon passes through the amber shadow of the earth, producing a midnight eclipse visible across North America. So begins a lunar eclipse tetrad, a series of four consecutive total eclipses occurring at approximately six-month intervals. This incredible light beams into the heart of earth's shadow, filling it with a coppery glow and transforming the moon into a great red orb. During this time, all Breedline species that are mated have a strong desire to create an offspring. This is also a time when Breedline females are more fertile for the conception of twins.

CHIANG-SHIH DEMON (Kiang shi, a.k.a Ramael Arminius) - An ancient demon that inhabits the body of a Breedline fetus before it's born, or during a Breedline's death. It continues to take the soul over the natural lifespan of the child, or the deceased Breedline. When the demon possesses a fetus, it breaks the bonding and telepathic abilities of their twin when they are born. If the demon possesses a deceased Breedline's body, it must do so before the soul passes on. If the soul is not intact, the body will soon die.
In most cases, the Chiang-shih demon will take the life of the other twin, even before their birth. The twin that is born with the demon will bring only evil to whomever they encounter. Their sole purpose is to gain full control of another soul and seek world domination.
There are two ways the demon is cast from the soul it possesses: by its first-born son, and the Angel of Mercy, Zadkiel. The Beast is the only one who can kill a Chiang-shih demon.

THE BEAST - He is the second born son of the Chiang-shih demon. When provoked into a rage, he will shift into his Beast instead of his Breedline wolf. The Beast is an enormous, dangerous two-footed creature that has wolf-like features. One bite has enough venom to kill the Chiang-shih demon and leave the soul of the person the demon possessed unharmed.

SHADOW WALKER (a.k.a Shadow Figure, or Black Mass) - The perception of a patch of shadow as a living, humanoid figure, particularly interpreted by the Breedline as the presence of a malevolent entity. When a Breedline species dies and does not pass on to the other side, they are left to roam the earth as a shadow of themselves - a ghost. They will not pass on until they have settled unfinished business before their death.

ZADKIEL (Tzadqiel, a.k.a "Righteousness of God") - The Archangel of freedom, benevolence, and mercy, and the Patron Angel of all who forgives. Breedline species tradition considers him to be the Angel of Mercy.

SUCCUBUS (a.k.a CREEPERS) - Creatures that search for, and feeds off the blood of the Breedline species. Creepers are skilled at extreme sexual pleasure, and the ecstasy they create is exceedingly intense and highly addictive. They cast off a scent that hypnotizes Breedlines into overwhelming sexual urges. They use their human-like bodies and beautiful features to control and influence their thoughts.
They have the ability to reach into the Breedline's mind during sleep, casting a spell of dreams about sexual contact, or intercourse. And one much less obvious manifestation of Creepers is nightmares - realistic, graphic, terrifying nightmares that rob the Breedline of sleep. Over a period, it can lead to severe fatigue and depression, leaving them emotionally and spiritually drained. Death can occur if they completely take over the Breedline's body.

HALF-BREED - This species is born with the genes from both Breedline and succubus. They can bond with either a full-blood Breedline or another half-breed. They do not have the ability to change into the Breedline wolf, but they do need blood from them to survive. With the power to hypnotize, most Breedlines have minimal respect and credence toward the half-breed species.

WICCA (or Wise One) - According to the Breedline species, a Wicca is the goddess of magic, witchcraft, the night, moon, ghosts, and necromancy. A Wicca is also considered to be a demonic spirit. It is unclear to the Breedline if they act under the orders of the devil, or they are simply not understood and treated as outcasts. They have the ability to do white magic (good) or dark (evil).

KATAKO (a.k.a Lucas, or Dark Shadow) - He is the Chiang-shih demon's offspring that is born both Breedline and Wiccan. After one year, the Katako develops into an adult with the mind of a child, without reaching full maturity. It has the power to appear translucent, or become completely invisible. Being born half Breedline, it can shift into a wolf and transform, or mimic another creature with the power to instantly travel from one place to another. Their true purpose of creation is to bring forth the souls stuck in purgatory by using one drop of its blood. Tessa Fairchild - the Breedline Queen - destroyed the Katako in battle using the deadly venom of her Breedline wolf.

GOLEMS (a.k.a The Death Army) - Evil creatures created by dark Wiccans with the power of necromancy. By releasing the souls of demons stuck in purgatory, the Wicca can give them the ability to shape into a creature that is made from earth. These creatures have various qualities, such as mass strength, enormous stature, and the power to consume their victims by saturating them with mud.

GUARDIANS (a.k.a Spirits of the Forest) - They originated during the Middle Ages with the purpose of protecting all creatures, especially the Breedline, from the destruction of any creation made by a dark Wicca. They have the ability to stay invisible with the power to move through any barrier and over any distance instantly.

THERIOMORPH - This species is born with the genes of a Breedline, but do not have the ability to change into a Breedline wolf. They shape shift into an enormous black panther. They possess powers of mind manipulation and random visions of the future. They must use the drug dopamine to suppress their urges. Their eye color shifts into a glowing lavender when their Theriomorph nature takes over. The Breedline see them as a threat to their species.

ADALWOLF - A species that has the power to shift from their human form into a beautiful creature, three times the size, resembling half man and half wolf. Born with super-strength, they can move from one place to another in supernatural speed. Their eyes take on the appearance of two-shimmering diamonds. With the power to regenerate their own cells, an Adalwolf will stop aging at thirty. The moon has no power over them. And an Adalwolf is immune to silver. They can bond with any species.
