A/N: Ok, so I just finished reading the 3rd book in the House of Night series and was inspired to write this story. Like I said, I just finished the 3rd book, so don't get all upset cuz I don't have something that comes later in the series. ENJOY! ;D
Disclaimer: I don't own Maximum Ride or House of Night.
Land here, my annoying Voice told me.
Ugh! Whatever…better to not argue with my all-knowing Voice. "Guys! We're gonna land here for the night, ok?" I yelled. I got an array of okay's and whatever's from my wonderful Flock as we angled toward the forest ahead.
I let my Flock land before me, but just as I was slowing myself to touch down, one of my famous brain-explosions hit me like a round-house kick. I screamed, tumbling through the air and skidding to a stop on the hard ground.
"MAX!" everyone yelled, running to my side as tears of pain streamed down my dirt-covered face. I felt Fang's arms circle me, lifting me onto his lap, whispering comforting words just loud enough for only me to hear.
After what seemed like ages, but was probably only a few minutes, the pain subsided enough for me to think clearly. What the heck was that? I thought.
A blessing, The Voice answered.
I mentally rolled my eyes, but took a deep breath and looked up at my Flock.
A relieved, "Max!" came from all except Fang and Angel, who were staring at me as if I'd grown another head.
"What?" I asked, annoyed.
Fang answered me, "Max, your forehead."
Nudge gasped, then dug through her backpack to find me a small compact that I could use, "Look Max."
I sighed and took the compact, gasping when I saw what now covered my forehead. My reflection showed a pale girl with giant brown eyes, and on her forehead was a bright, sapphire blue, crescent moon with wings. Suddenly, I was consumed by a gigantic coughing fit. Doubling over, I coughed without control, unable to stop.
Go to the House of Night, my Voice advised, it's about a mile to the South.
I nodded, extending my wings, motioning for the Flock to follow, afraid that if I opened my mouth again that I would start coughing again. I took off, flying to the South. I spotted a large castle-like building, just before I blacked out.
A/N: Yah, I know it's short, but just think of it as a prologue…kinda. REVIEW! ;D
