"What is she doing here?" Emma slowly walked over to Collette.
"I-I'm not sure…"
"Who is she?" Greg looked at the pair.
"Jacob." The woman called out. "Jacob, are you ok?"
"What the…" Jacob stared at her. "Mom, what are you doing here?"
"I came to put a stop to all this before someone seriously gets hurt." Sally carefully stepped around Butch. She was wearing a long black coat over what she was wearing and black high heels. Her hair was pulled back into a ponytail.
"Too late…" Collette held her ribs. "But how did you know we were here?"
"She was in on it!" Greg blurted out.
"She can't be in on it!" Collette yelled at him. "She's my aunt! She's J's mother!"
"Actually…" She looked down sheepishly.
"You were in on it!?" Jacob yelled. "But why?"
"I can explain honey." She paused for a moment. "I was chosen to be a part of a…society of sorts. It specialized in the history of the 'Chosen Ones'. My job was to seek out the 'Chosen Ones' and test them to make sure they could work together without disagreement. Adam is also part of this society and I asked him to help me with your test."
"So he's a good guy?" Collette raised a brow.
"That's right." Adam placed his hand on her shoulders. "And it's been an honor to be in your presence."
"He took one look at your picture and instantly agreed." Sally smiled.
"But why didn't you tell us, Mom?"
"I wanted to Jacob, I really did, but I swore not to." She gave her son a pleading look. "Can you forgive me?"
"I don't know…" He hung his head.
"I think you should." Collette placed a hand on his shoulder.
"Yeah?" He looked up at her.
"Yeah, since Sally's the only one that can cook something edible." She grinned.
"Funny." He narrowed his eyes at her.
"But why test us now?" Greg looked to Sally.
"Yeah." Emma followed. "Why not when all four of us were together?"
"I'm not sure how long it will take for the next 'Chosen One' to be found and we don't have much time left."
"So…it isn't Adam?" Emma asked.
"Nope." He smiled and pulled out the necklace. "I'm an amateur hypnotist. It's a hobby"
"Weird hobby…have you ever considered reading?" Collette remarked.
"The website I couldn't get on." Jacob suddenly blurted out.
"Protected by the society." Sally smiled. "Nothing to worry about, we'll tell you everything you need to know."
"You guys are freaks!" Sheryl suddenly blurted out. She had been standing back, quietly listening to the conversations.
"Should I, Sally?" Adam asked.
"I think you better." She nodded. Adam snapped his fingers and Sheryl was under his control.
"Don't they remember anything?" Emma looked up at Adam.
"No, they just think it was a dream. It's actually quite fun."
"So you did kiss me, you pervert!" Collette suddenly screamed. Jacob held her back. "I knew it!"
"Adam." Sally almost growled.
"I couldn't help it; she's such a beautiful young woman." He smiled. Collette blushed.
"You're still a pervert." She crossed her arms.
"I think we should get back." He smiled. "Butch, get up!"
"You too, Sissy." Greg smiled. The loved the idea if having an enemy under his control. The siblings pulled themselves to their feet and followed the group back to the school.
"This shouldn't take to long, Collette." Greg reassured as he attached two wires to her collar. They had returned Sheryl, Butch and Sissy to their rooms and Sally had returned home. Greg had asked about Collette's collar and she told him the story behind it. He said he knew a way to remove it.
"What are you going to do again?" She asked nervously.
"I'm just going to send a few large volts to the collar from the schools electricity supply, it should overload the locking system."
"Uh huh…" She nodded. "But I don't like the word 'should'."
"Everything will be fine, Collette." Adam smiled. "I hear he's fantastic in his science lessons."
"Would be better in art though." Jacob yawned. "How you going to get enough power from the school electricity from the plug sockets?"
"It's all about hacking." He tapped away at his computer for a moment. "Ready Collette?"
"This is dangerous…" Emma bit her bottom lip. "It is attached to her neck after all."
"It won't be too much that it'll kill her, but it might make her a little numb or just make her body tingle."
"Great I'm going to be bacon!"
"Here we go!" He pressed the return button and the collar began to spark. Collette winced and clenched her teeth."
"Argh! I can't take it, turn it off!" Greg pressed the return button again and Collette dropped to her knees. Adam, Emma and Jacob were instantly at her side.
"I guess you can't get it off…" Emma sighed. "I'm sorry, Collette…"
"I-It's not your fault, Em." She smiled through the pain. "Don't worry about it."
"I'm sorry too, Collette…" Greg shook his head disappointedly. "But I'll figure it out, I promise." She nodded as she struggled to her feet. Adam gently pulled her up by her arm and held her steady.
"The feeling should come back soon." Adam smiled and held her close to him. "And thank you for at least trusting me once, princess." He whispered in her ear.
"You're welcome…" She mumbled. "But stop calling me princess."
"But you are one." He smiled.
"Are you ok now, Collette?" Jacob tilted his head to the side.
"Still a little numb." She laughed. "But I'm ok."
"Good." He placed a hand on her shoulder. Images of Collette surrounded by a black mist suddenly flashed through his head. He jerked his hand away and stepped back.
"Are you ok, Jacob?" Emma looked up at him.
"Fine." He nodded. "Just fine."
