With a worried look still on her face, her mother said, “This is much

bigger than you can understand. Once your father gets home we’ll have

your grandmother come over and then decide what to do.”

Her mother jumped up and made some phone calls.

With a worried look still on her face, her mother said, “This is much

bigger than you can understand. Once your father gets home we’ll have

your grandmother come over and then decide what to do.”

Her mother jumped up and made some phone calls.

It wasn’t like her mom to be so cryptic. Keegan shivered, brushing

the feeling away. She didn’t understand what was going on, but she

hoped that her mom was just overreacting. Grabbing her iPad, she went

up to her room.

She decided to do some research on dark elves and was surprised at

how much information there was on Google. Obviously, most of the

information was incorrect. The dark elf didn’t seem bothered that she

was out during the day, and she was far from ugly. Most humans would

be shocked if they knew the extent of supernatural beings that blended

into their world each day.

Before the front door had even opened, Keegan knew her father was

home. After the reaction her mother gave her, his presence made her feel

a little apprehensive.

A few minutes later, she heard her grandmother arrived, the soft

mumble of her voice drifting to her room. Her father’s voiced boomed

up the stairs, “Family meeting!”

Keegan dragged herself from her desk chair and headed down the

hall. Thaddeus glared at her as she passed his open doorway. He was

sitting on the floor in front of his television, game controller in hand.

“Are you kidding me, Keegan! What have you done this time? I’m in the

middle of a game.”

Keegan stopped, leaning on the doorjamb and sighing. “Just get

downstairs. You know how dad gets if he thinks we’re not listening to

him.”

He reached over, grumbling under his breath, and turned off the

Xbox. “This better be good.”

“I thought you knew everything,” Keegan teased as they started

down the hall, ruffling her hand in her brother’s soft auburn hair.

Though he was four years younger than her, he was quickly catching up

to her in height.

“Shut up. You know that’s not how it works,” he responded, ducking

away from her grasp.
