A/N: I'm so sorry I haven't updated for a couple weeks. I've been going through something personal and I was on vacation all last week. I don't want to bother you with excuses, so I'm just going to say I'm sorry again, but I do have a life in the summer, so it may take more time between updates. I'll try my best and I'm sorry if this chapter isn't that long.
Will said something that surprised everyone. "Weira?"
Trill squeezed her eyes shut and Hay Lin quickly guided the woman to the edge of couch where she could sit down. The servant put a hand to her head and blinked rapidly to clear her mind.
"Will, what are you talking about?" Matt asked his girlfriend, gently pushing her back down when she tried to sit up again.
"Who's Weira? What does she have to do with anything?" Taranee asked as she looked at Will, concern in her eyes.
""Whoever this Weira chic is, she sounds like bad news," Irma muttered under her breath before grinning when Taranee glanced her way.
"Why was Will dreaming about her? She should be dreaming of ways to fix all this! Fix Caleb and bring Elyon home!" Cornelia frowned as she blinked away her tears again.
"Wait!" Hay Lin said from where she was tending to Trill. She had overheard their comments. "Don't you guys remember what my grandma told us a while ago when this whole guardian thing first started?" she asked before sighing when all she received were blank looks. "Weira was-" Hay Lin was cut off by another voice.
"Weira was Elyon's mother," Trill explained as she stood up again and looked at Will's bandaged wounds as if she were thinking. "Weira was the Queen of Meridian once, until something terrible happened. She was a great queen and will always be remembered in the hearts of the Meridian people," Trill continued.
"But why would Will dream about her?" Hay Lin asked, confused.
"Why don't we let Will talk?" Will spoke up, trying to let her friends know she was well enough to explain.
"Not now, Will," Taranee waved a hand dismissively at Will, causing the redhead to frown and silently count down in her head. "Will!" Taranee cried as silent countdown reached one.
"Will, tell us what you saw," Trill urged the girl, wanting to know as badly as the guardians what the heck was going on.
"Well, it was almost like I was with Elyon, but no one could see me and or hear me or feel me. She was brought into the cave and then Phobos and Nerissa showed up and Phobos said something about a choice she had to make once that girl Mel was done with her and then Phobos said he had one question before they left the two girls alone and he started to say Weira or something else, but Elyon cut him off by asking about Weira and then I woke up," Will explained, just as confused as everyone else by the dream. However, Trill looked thoughtful as she stayed silent.
"Trill, do you have any idea what's going on?" Irma asked the worker, hoping she could shed some light on the strange occurrence.
"Perhaps," Trill replied. "Will, I believe your aura was in the cave for a little bit with Queen Elyon, but when you started to stir it came back and then you woke up. Anyway, Queen Elyon never met her mother. Once her brother turned thirteen, the day after she was born, darkness and chaos overcame Meridian. Two loyal servants of the queen, the Browns you know them as, took the heir to the throne away from the awful, hoping to protect her from her brother's wrath, something even Queen Weira could not do as Phobos drained her powers and sentenced his own mother to a slow, painful death. So, as when Nerissa had first tried to drain Queen Elyon's power and then succeeded, she used the looking fountain to show Queen Elyon false images of Weira. However, it gave Queen Elyon the impression that her mother is still alive, somewhere, waiting for her daughter to rescue. Phobos knows his sister's weakness. Queen Weira is her weakness. They will use that to their advantage. Queen Elyon would do anything, and I mean absolutely anything if it meant meeting her mother," Trill finished with a sad smile.
"So, what you're saying is Phobos and Nerissa will use 'Weira' for something that will make Elyon do as she is told, even if it means destroying her own kingdom?" Will asked as the listeners took in the new information.
"Somewhat, but I am not sure how they could do it because the only place they can do it is in this palace, somewhere they won't be able to get to," Trill responded, worry etched in her face.
"Don't worry, Trill. We won't let this happen," Irma assured her as determination flashed through her eyes.
"But what about Caleb?" Cornelia asked, hardly able to focus on the story of Weira.
"My dear girl, trust me when I say that everything will work out in the end," Trill said softly as she took one of Cornelia's hands in both her own. Cornelia looked up at her and nodded, although she was unsure. How could things ever be alright again?
A/N: I told you it would be short, so I'm sorry. Next chapter will also be relatively short and then they should get longer again. Please review!
