Previously on Every Witch Way: "Wow, you were out for quite a while." I suddenly jumped as I heard another voice talking to me, and looked around in a panic, expecting to see Mrs. Novoa. However, what I saw instead, was something I didn't expect to see. It was a girl. A girl with long wavy brown hair with curly ringlets, and brown eyes. Around her neck and wrists though were the same crimson red collars I had to wear thanks to Mrs. Novoa. "How did you get here?" I asked. "The Council found me, and dragged me here," She replied. "After they knocked me out." "How long have you been here?" I asked her. "Don't know," She replied. "I can't exactly remember." "Well, what's your name? I'm Diego." "My name's Kim." She replied.
"Your powers are somehow tied to your emotions, so you must have been feeling something, that made this happen." She said, looking at each of us.
"You have to find the one thing that keeps holding you back," Said Lily. "Find the one emotion that keeps you from being able to acess your powers. Once you find out what that is, you have to then release that emotion, if it's fear for example, once you realise just what it is your afraid of, you then need to figure out how to overcome it."
. "No. Make it stop. Make it stop." "Jax, what's wrong? answer me!" I could hear Emma's voice calling out to me, but I couldn't respond. I finally understood now what it was that was holding me back. It was my other fear, the fear of facing my father.
"Smooth one Emma!" Maddie cried out angrily. "You could've killed us!" "Maddie, keep your voice down would you?" I asked. "Maddie? Emma?" I jumped as I heard Diego's voice and let out a sigh of relief.
"Play it cool," I whispered to her. "It's not what it looks like." "We'll see about that." She muttered angrily. "So are you a witch?" Emma asked. "It's a little complicated actually." She said as she turned toward me.
"Relax Diego," Emma said gently. "I can totally handle this." I saw her wave her hand as sparks of pink magic shot out of her finger, and much to my amazement, the collars on Kim were gone! "Whoa!" I cried out happily. "How did you guys get your powers back?" "It's a long story." Emma replied. "Now I can show you what I mean," Kim said as she looked over at me. We all watched as she concentrated, and a blue fireball appeared in her hand. "No way." I breathed in awe. "Th- that-that means means that your-" "Yep, I'm not a witch," She said with a smile. "I'm a Kanay." she announced proudly with a smile.
Chapter 20 - Good Magic Vs. Evil Magic
"Your a Kanay?" Maddie asked raising an eyebrow of suspiscion. "That dosen't make any sense. All the Kanay's have been wiped out, except for Diego. How do we know your not in cahoots with the Council, plotting to destroy us?" "Why would I want to do that?" Kim asked, as her brown eyes narrowed angrily. "First of all, I don't even know who you are, and second of all, If I was working with the Council, why on earth would I be locked up in a cell with power restricted collars on me?" Immediatly I could sense the anger rising from both of them, and I got in between them. "Stop it," I said gently as I looked at Maddie. "Maddie, it's okay. She's not working with the Council." "How do you know?" Maddie asked looking at me with a look of anger. "I can't believe your actually going to take her side, and not mine."
"This has nothing to do with that," I said feeling a wave of frustration building up within me. "Guys, can we do this later?" I had forgotten that Emma was still with us untilI heard her voice. "The Council's going to sense that we're here sooner or later," She replied. "We should get out of here while we still can." "I'm with her." Kim said in agreement. I looked over at Maddie, and all I could get was a look of anger. "What?" "Now your going to side with Emma too?" she spat out angrily. "Maddie, stop it," I said gently as I took her hands in mine. "You know how I feel about you. Nothing's going to ever stop me from loving you. Your my princess." I said with a smile. I saw the look on Maddie's face suddenly wash away, and was immediatly replaced with a smile. "Oh, proxy!" she gushed as she wrapped her arms around me.
"Let's get out of here now." I said as Maddie pulled away from me still smiling. "Your right. Let's go." I turned to Emma, and she began to channel her magic. "Our quest is now complete, take us back home on the double." Sparks of pink magic flowed from her finger, but nothing happened. "What's wrong? Why didn't it work?" I asked. "I-I don't know." She said. "That's never happened before." "Try it again." Said Maddie. Emma tried the spell again, and still nothing happened. "What do we do now?" Maddie asked, looking at me. "What you do now is you suffer," I felt a wave of fear run through me as I heard Mrs. Novoa's voice, as we all turned to see her standing with the rest of the Council. Before any of us had any time to react, the next thing I felt was a tremondous wav of pain flowing through me. I could hear everyone else around me screaming in pain. Just as I was begining to lose conciousness, the last thing I saw was Maddie's face, with tears rolling down her cheeks as we all fell to the ground, and I was engulfed in darkness.
I let out a deep sigh as I laid out on the couch in the living room, still at Emma's house. I thought about closing my eyes, but each and every time I thought about, I would see my mother's dead body. What was I going to do? I knew I didn't have it in me to go against my dad, but yet I didn't want anything to happen to Emma. Suddenly just as thoughts about Emma swirled around in my head, an icy wave of fear ran through me, and I sat up immediatly like a speeding bullet. Something's wrong. I thought. Emma's in danger. "Hey Jax, have you seen Emma?" Andi asked as she came down the stairs. "She's been gone for a while now, and I'm starting to-" she cut herself off as she looked at me, and immediatly the expression on her face changed from concerned to fear and worry. "What's wrong?"
"Emma's in trouble." I said fearfully. "The Council has her." "Well don't just stand there, we gotta do something!" She cried. "What's going on?" Daniel asked as I noticed him coming down the stairs. "Is Emma back yet? Where is she?" "She's in trouble." Andi said worridly. "The Council found her." "Jax, take us to the magic realm now." Daniel said as her voice suddenly filled with worry. I drew in a deep breath, and felt my magic bubbling up within me. Swirls of blue and black magic shot from my hand, and the next thing I knew we were standing once again in the Council's fortress.
"Where is she?" Andi asked, looking around in fear. "She and Maddie have to be around here somewhere." Suddenly another icy wave of fear ran through me, followed by a sudden stab of pain in my gut. "She's this way," I said taking off in a flash. "Wait up!" Andi called as she and Daniel managed to catch up to me. "How do you know where she is?" Daniel asked. "Call it a hunch," I replied. "It's something you wouldn't understand." Hang on Emma. I thought. No matter what happen, just keep holding on.
When I opened my eyes, I realised my hands and feet were tied and bound. "Diego? Maddie?" I looked around as a wave of fear ran through me. Please tell me I'm not alone. I thought fearfully. "Well, well Chosen One, seems the time has finally come at last." I heard Jax's step mother's voice as I turned to face her. Behind her was a man I had never seen before, but looked very much like Jax. "Your Jax's father," I said fearfully as they both drew closer toward me. "Seems you've heard of me." He replied in a deep voice. "Now then, let's see what we can do about those powers of yours shall we?"
"Don't touch her!" Jax! I thought happily as I saw him with a look of anger showing in his eyes. "You dare to defy us son?" Mrs Novoa turned toward Jax. "First of all, your not my mother, and second of all, get away from Emma." "Now your ordering us?" His dad said as his voice boomed with anger. "No one us orders us to do anything, especially you." "Seems like you need to be taught a lesson." His step mother replied as I saw sparks of royal purple magic begining to shoot out her hand. "Jax!" I cried out in fear.
I used my magic and shot out a huge blast of energy toward them, knocking them both off their feet, before teleporting to Emma's side. "You got your powers back?" she asked in amazment. "H-how?" "Never mind that now." I said. "Use a teleporting spell to find Andi and Daniel. They're with Maddie and Diego." "What about you?" she asked. "I can't just leave you here." "I'll be fine," I replied. "Just go." "Not without you." "Emma, now." I said. "Go!" Suddenly a huge blast of pain shot through me knocking me off my feet. "AGH!" I cried out as I hit the wall. "Jax!" I heard Emma's voice, and used my powers to stop her from coming toward me. "Emma, go!" I ordered. "I don't want anything to happen to you-AGH!" a scream of pain cut me off. "Stop it!" Emma cried out. "Stop hurting him!"
"It's about time you pay for all your incometence Jax." came my step mother's voice as I looked up at them. With a mixture of pain and anger flowing through me, I managed to use every last bit of magic I had left within me, and once again knocked them both on their feet. "Jax!" Emma cried out as she ran over toward me. "What were you thinking? You could've been killed!" "I don't care what happens to me." I said weakly. "As long as your safe, that's all that matters." Suddenly, I heard my step mother's voice call out, "You'll pay dearly for that!" Suddenly out of the corner of my eye, I saw a fury of royal purple sparks coming toward Emma. "Emma, duck!" I cried out, as I saw a swarm of pink magic shot out her finger, which not only stopped my step mother's spell, but it also knocked her backward. "Emma, please, just get out here while you still can." I said, while getting shakily to my feet. "I already told you," She said as she grabbed a hold of my arm. "I'm not leaving without you."
"Why are you being so stubborn about this?" I asked. "Because I'm sick and tired of everyone risking their lives to save me, just because I'm the Chosen One, dosen't mean I need twenty-four hour protection." She let out a deep sigh. "Why are you so worried about me anyway?" She asked. I drew in a deep breath and looked at her. "Because I'm scared of losing you." I said. "Losing my mom was hard enough on me, that I don't want to feel that same pain again." "That's what was holding back before?" she asked in shock. I nodded in response. "Oh Jax." she said softly, as I felt her arms wrap around. I can't keep doing this to her. I thought. I can't keep putting her in danger. If I never would've come here, my parents would've never known of her existence and she would be free.
"Emma!" I pulled away from Jax as I heard Andi's voice, and immediatly was wrapped into a big bear-like hug. "I was so worried," She said in concern. "Are you okay? what happened?" "Relax Andi," I said gently. "I'm okay." "Are you sure?" Daniel asked as he wrapped me in a hug. "Your not hurt any where are you?" "Relax Danny." I said. "I'm fine. Really. Though if it hadn't been for Jax, I probably would be dead right now." "Speaking of Jax," Diego said walking up to us and looking around. "Where is he?" I looked around in confusion. "He was right here a second ago." I said. "Jax?" I called out his name, but got no response. "Where did he get to?" Suddenly I felt a slight nudge on my shoulder and looked up. "Hex!" I cried happily. "What are you doing here? How did you find me?" Hex glowed a bright shade of golden light. Understanding Hex was like trying to understand morse code. Sometimes I wondered how Andi could even understand him. "Hey Em, There's something inside him." Said Andi suddenly. "Looks like a note or something." I took the note from Hex, and immediatly felt a sinking feeling in my stomach. It was in Jax's handwritting.
I realised that I will never be the right guy for you. You belong with Daniel, and I see that now. Being with me will only put you in danger, and I can't have that happen, which is why I've decided to leave Miami, and I don't plan on returning. You will be fine without me I'm sure. I'm sorry for ever getting you involved in any of this in the first place. If had never met you none of this would've happened, and you would be safe, and now without me around, you will be. I will find a way to deal with my father and step mother to keep the Council away from you and the others. Take care Emma, and no matter what happens, don't give up hope. I will always love you, even if you don't have the same feelings for me.
I let the letter fall from my hands and sank to my knees as I felt tears fill up in my eyes. "Emma? you okay?" Daniel asked. "What's wrong?" "Jax is gone." I sobbed. "He's gone and he's not coming back." "Shh, it's okay," Said Daniel softly. I immediatly fell into his arms and cried.
Six Months Later...
"Emma, another order of smoothies to table 6 outside." Diego ordered. "I'm on it!" I said as I grabbed the tray of smoothies and headed outside. A cool breeze blew around me as a few seagulls squaked overhead. I looked out toward the ocean as the waves lapped against the shore, coming in and out with the tide. Can't believe it's already Summer. I thought as another breeze blew around me. "I wonder what Jax is doing right now." I muttered to myself. It's been six months since he had left, and things have since gone somewhat back to normal. "Emma!" I heard Diego calling me and immediatly snapped out of my thoughts, and went back to my duty. "Here you go, one strawberry-bannana smoothie, and one mango-guavo smoothie." I said handing the two elderly woman their drinks. "you such a dear," Said one of them polietly. "It's no problem." I said with a smile as I headed back toward Diego. "Hey," I turned around to see Daniel and I smiled. "Hey, what's going on? I thought you were on lifegaurd duty."
"I am." Daniel replied, but Joe's taking my spot, which means I'm on break." "Great!" I said happily. "I'll go get you a smoothie." "Emma, hang on a second." I turned around and looked at him. "What's up Danny?" The next thing I felt was his lips touching mine as he kissed me. "I love you." He said softly. "I-" I was about to reply, when something caught my eye. I saw a bunch of people dressed in black clothing jogging across the beach, almost like a military unit. "Let's go, keep it up." I heard Agememnon's voice, and looked over at him. "Let's go keep it up." he ordered. As I scanned my eyes through the crowd of people, I suddenly let out a gasp.
I couldn't believe it. "Jax?" I muttered. "What?" Said Daniel as I suddenly looked up at him. "What did you say Emma?" "Uh-" I cut myself off again, and looked out toward the beach again, but Jax wasn't there. Neither was Agememnon. Am I going crazy? I thought. Was I imagining seeing Jax there? "You sure your okay?" Daniel asked. "Maybe you need a break or something, the sun's probably getting to you. I'll go let Diego know that your taking a break." It was then that I thought back to my mother's words, and thought of the spell she had taught me. I know now, I thought to myself. I know who my heart belongs to now mom. I'm in love with Jax, not Daniel, what am I going to do now? How was I going to tell him? What am I going to tell Daniel? Something tells me this is going to be one crazy summer.
It's finally over, but not to worry, because the story will continue on in my sequel titled Dark Signs. What will happen in the sequel? That is something for you to decide. Hope you enjoyed the ride throughout the story, and please let me know what you would want to see happen in the sequel.
