Chapter 6

Liliana eyes fluttered open as she felt the chill of cold air embrace her bare arms. She looked at her wall in a daze for a minute not wanting to get out of her warm bed so early in the morning. She let out a long winded sigh and then Liliana finally crawled her way out of the bed. She walked over to her small wardrobe and then pulled out a pair of tan baggy cargo pants and a black sleeveless turtleneck that hugged her upper body perfectly. She then pulled on some black boots and a fishnet glove that went a little ways past her elbow, the finger parts of the glove were all cut off.

After Liliana finished getting dressed she pulled her curly hair into a high ponytail once again and then made her way to her window to look outside. When she pulled the thin curtains to the side her eyes went wide at what she saw in front of her. The sky had turned blood red; it was the same sky that her father disappeared in.

"The Demons Sky…" She said as she gaped at the crimson sky that now surrounded her. She pulled her curtains shut as quickly as she could and then ran down stairs to be greeted with her mother's friendly face.

"About time you woke up." She said with a motherly smile on her face. Liliana let out a sigh of relief when she saw her mother standing there and then she ran over and gave her a big hug.

"L…Liliana… is everything okay?" She asked as she stared at Liliana nervously. Liliana clung on to her for a few more minutes before she finally let her go and stared at her with a serious expression that shocked Kristine.

"Mum, don't leave the house today." She said flatly. Kristine stared at her shocked that she would even say something like that.

"I would but I have errands I must do." She said as she watched her daughter cross the room and grab her bag.

"I'll do them today so don't worry…" Liliana said not looking at her mother even once. Kristine just stared at her confused and feeling a little worried now.

"Liliana… what's wrong?" She asked as she looked at her daughters back nervously. Liliana did not reply she just turned on her heel and headed for the door. Once she was in the doorway she turned her head back towards her mother and gave her a worried smile.

"Just please… listen to me this time." She said as she left the house and slammed the door shut behind her. To make sure Kristine wouldn't get out she blocked the door, and then she put some kind of charm on the door.

"That should keep anything from going in…" She said to herself. Once she was finished with the charms she began to head to her job. The whole time she prayed that the charms would be enough to keep her mother safe.
