It all started 10 years ago. I lived in a small town just outside of Brisbane... Capalaba, but this town was no ordinary town. For an average eight year old you would think mythical creatures were just imaginary; instead for me it's damn true. Lucky enough for me when my Father died i had a relative i could stay with. When i arrived at Toowoomba i realised that this town had as many secrets as my hometown had but nothing as dangerous though.

As i grew older i discovered my Father had lied to me about everything. Who i was, why i was here. My Aunt Kathy taught me about my ancestry, how to control my emotions and powers and she also told me about my gift that i had tried not to think about. But the more time i spent with her the more i learnt new things, just as i was beginning to find out about my parents i came across something very interesting.


'Knock, knock'. "There's someone at the door for you, well not exactly someone its someone's" My Aunt kindly said through my bedroom door. I got up and made my way to the door but quickly stopped at the mirror making sure my brunette hair was nicely placed down my shoulders and my clothes were tidy. I opened the door and asked "Do you know who they are?

"No i thought you would, but hurry up. They didn't look like the waiting type!" she replied as she walked towards her bedroom. Just as i was about to open the door i got a strange chill up my spine and as i reached for the door it got worse, but i guessed it was just nervousness. When i opened the door, there in front of me was three males roughly the same age as me. "Can i help you?" I questioned.

"Are you Caroline?" the boy in front asked.

"Yes I'm Caroline, what do you want?" I demanded.

"This will be a lot to take in, but you need to read this first" he answered and gave me an envelope. I opened it to see a letter from my mother whom was supposedly killed in a car accident when i was younger.

It read:

Dear Caroline,

As of now you will probably be having a great life and for that i am grateful. But right now you must have been told about who you really are, and i am very sorry that i was not the one to tell you and that I'm not there with you at this point in time, but maybe we will see each other again. I am writing this letter to you my dear because they are coming for me, and will eventually come for you. but i have told your brothers to stay with you, and you are to protect each other. I know that your father and I told you, you were an only child but these boys there with you are them. After you all turned five we decided to split you up, your brothers went to your uncle Jacob and you were to go to your Aunt Kathy's, but knowing your Father he didn't do that.

As of now sweetheart you must stay with your brothers, it's too dangerous for you to stay with your Aunt anymore. Caroline it's with my great regret to tell you that you must return to your hometown and uncover the secrets our family has buried there; otherwise you will be an open target for those who are trying to find you. Good luck my child.

Love Evelyn.B

After i had finished reading the letter i looked up to see the faces of those whom are my brothers. In some ways they looked like Father and like our Mother who we had spent little time with. " I can understand if you don't know what all of that means, but it's the truth" one of them said.

"I understand most of it, but not all" i replied.

"Okay, we can explain it; but first I'm Paul" he said. He had brown hair just like mine but cut short at the sides and a tip Mohawk at the front of his head and Green eyes.

"I'm Alec" the boy on the right of Paul said. He had short black hair, and blue eyes.

"I'm chase" he was on the left side of Paul. He was different to the other two. He had Silver hair and brown eyes "There are four more- Cooper, Dylan, Nick and Benji. Their waiting for us". Just then my Aunt rounded the corner with a suitcase in her hand, and gave it to Paul.

"Wah-whats that for?" i asked.

"Sweetie, you have to go with your brothers now. I'm glad that i meet you and got to know you, you're a wonderful niece. You'll get along fine with your brothers" she replied.

"What about school? And my Friends?" I questioned.

"We've already enrolled you in school and as of friends you can make new ones Caroline" Paul answered.

"So that's it, you guys turn up and then i have to go with you and trust you. I'm sorry but ever since i found out that my Father was lying to me i don't think i can fully trust anyone again!" I shouted.

"Father lied to everyone, and its okay you don't have to trust us if you don't want to. But you still have to come with us" Chase replied in a calm voice. He moved to the side and motioned for me to follow him. I gave in after standing there for a while and followed them down to two jeeps. "You'll come with us" Alec said and motioned for the silver jeep. In front of us was a black jeep which Cooper, Dylan, Nick and Benji were in.

Along the drive to Capalaba we kept in touch by walkie talkies. After a while of being in the car i got bored of listening to the radio so i looked out the window to discover we were surrounded by trees on both sides of the road. it took us at least an hour and a half to get to Capalaba and then another 10 minutes to arrive at the house. It was huge, at first i thought they had the wrong address until out came the man they described as our Uncle Jacob, with an unhappy look on his face.

"What's wrong Uncle Jake?" Cooper asked as he jumped from his seat to the ground.

"You haven't heard the news yet have you" He replied as he looked at me "At first i thought you guys hadn't made it their and gotten Caroline. I was just on my way to find you when an emergency call was made, it was your Aunt. It's all over the news so i wouldn't try and watch TV if i were you lot".

"What do you mean?" I asked.

"Your Aunt rang me to tell me to keep you safe, and then i heard screams and a man's voice and then on the news it had your Aunts house on the news. I'm sorry Caroline but your Aunt's dead" he replied sadly.
