Recap: as I laughed to myself all I could do was feel my eyelids droop as I fell into a deep sleep as well…

Kaleigh's POINT OF VIEW

I had the most bizarre dream I have ever recalled upon. I was in a tree literally in a hollow tree and it was on fire around me. The colors were morphing from a vivid red to a calm magenta and more colors I can't even think of. I then touched the flames and they were cold as ice. I then saw a shadow of a person holding an axe coming towards me and I was able to get through the flames but then, a scalding pain was seeping into my left palm. I was turning into a crescent sage. I then woke up and thought 'this was probably how it felt for Brian. He was so brave and that's why I love him.' I remembered Jack telling me stories about a land of crescent sages and how they were taken over by an army of demons. Jack said the story was passed down from one generation to the other. And that's how he found out. I never knew it was real but, I always had hope.

Brian's POV

I wrapped my arms around my love as I yawned and said, "good morning love." She yawned as well but I could tell she was awake before me. She then rubbed her eyes and said groggily, "how'd you sleep cutie pie?" I was blushing a rose pink when she called me that and she only giggled slightly. I then kissed her neck when she finally blushes. She then said, "I had the most bizarre dream." As she was telling me more details about the dream, I then said, "Well Kaleigh, that is how I became a crescent sage, it was very frightening and painful. I never want you to face that kind of torment ever. I would be terrified to lose you."

Kaleigh's POV

A single tear ran down my cheek as he told me about his transformation. I was right, and i did listen to Jack's stories at night. But he never told me that crescent sages have the powers of a vampire. He then said, "I'm okay now sweetie. After a few days, the powers and abilities come more into affect. And we never die. But before I tell you, can you keep a secret?" I silently nodded my head and he continued, "I was transformed in 1659. I was trained to be romantic, tender, and chivalrous."

Brian's POV

Kaleigh had her mouth agape in amazement. I then closed her mouth because she looked a bit shocked. She then stuttered, "Wow…just…wow." As I stared at her I remembered Emilie, the past love of my life, she was now dating Richard, my arch enemy. The last thing he said was, to stay away from Emilie and to die. How I regret leaving her yet, Kaleigh looks exactly like her.

As we came back to the real world, Kaleigh fell asleep and I laid her on our gargantuan bed and I lay next to her. I was stroking her hair and this felt right. And I was lucky to burn the tree that changed me into what I am. I know I am a monster, or a killer you may call me. I didn't want Kaleigh to see me in sunlight for she might leave me as well. I then said to myself, "I know Kaleigh needs to know but I'm afraid she might leave me or worse, I'll end up accidentally hurting or killing her…"

Kaleigh's POV

I felt Brian was stroking my hair. I decided to keep my eyes shut because this felt right…this is where I want to be. Although Brian had amazing self control, he could slip and I could die. God knows I will never leave Brian but what if he leaves me? I'd be scared senseless. I'd die then he and I would never forgive each other. I suddenly started to cry but without a single noise, you'd be able to hear an ant pee on cotton. I then asked, "Brian, would you ever leave me?" He looked at me as if I had three heads and replied, "Kaleigh, I would never leave you in an eternity." I stopped crying and I got this mental picture of a waterfall and a sunset on a beach in my head. I then asked, "Brian? Why am I picturing a waterfall and a sun setting beach?" he then responded, "I have that ability and the ability to control nature. You see, sages were created by god to help control things like nature and whatnot."

Brian's POV

Kaleigh didn't seem nervous around me. With that I felt even more nervous with telling her what we now feed on. I backed away and growled, "I can't even be near you. Ask, what do we eat?" She looked a little weirded out and asked, "What do you eat?" I then replied in a low growl, "We are supposed to drink blood…Human blood. At least I have the control to stop unlike the others…" she looked more understanding than terrified at my monstrous figure in the dark and replied, "Brian, I will always love you and I knew about the burnings, and Liam told me about Emilie and Richard, he reminds me a lot like Braden, my biological father, he did….things to me…." As her whimsical voice trailed off into her spiraling torrent of never-ending fears and terror, I had this violently defensive yet aggressive stance. From the sound of it, she was put here by fate. And I knew from the start that the bastard who nearly killed Emilie will have to die….

Kaleigh's POV

I gently took Brian's hand and softly said, "Brian, it's the exact opposite, I feel completely safe here, and especially here with you. And could you possibly enlighten me on the Richard person?" I obviously knew Brian was frustrated with me since Richard was the one who took Emilie from him. He gave a defeated sigh and motioned for me to sit down. He then began, "Richard is a vampire, like sages but only for death and all things evil and discordant. Vampires were made by Satan where crescent sages were created by god. That's really where the clash of god and Satan began…

Brian vs. thoughts

I know that I could lose all control but, I love her too much, I would love to have passion if it's ok with Jiminy cricket. Stop calling me that! I am no cricket! I am a human being! And besides, do you really wanna lose her? No but that's beside the point. But really, I do love her and I know we can trust in each other. Yes, I know you love her, since you never loved a woman, but my heart will always belong to her.

Brian's POV

I was watching my angel sleep peacefully underneath the stars while the gargantuan oak tree where Kaleigh first fell asleep in my arms. But I knew what was going to happen; I just had this vision in which something…or someone…does the unforgiveable to my sweet angel. I'm not about to let that happen…
