It was three in the morning and five cloaked teenagers stood at the bank rocks of the Lake in Central Park in New York City. Since no one (except probably the homeless) is in Central Park at this time of the day, it is the perfect time to do something malevolent.

Eris, the one in the middle of the group, stood forward and opened the book she was carrying. The book was hard covered with varnished leather and a red symbol embossed on the front. She opened it to the page marked by a bloodstained bookmark garter. The page was bordered by miserable snowflakes and had an incantation of an indistinctive language, handwritten in an icy calligraphy. When she got there, she began to read it in a whisper.

And as she did so, each of the other four came forward and dropped something into the water. Loki came forward first and dropped a handful of small little diamonds, the size of grape seeds. Isis came forward next, who carried a vial of cat blood, and poured it onto the water. Then Samael came forward and dropped three coins from a dead man's pocket. Then last Thanatos came forward and dropped a strand of hair from his classmate in English.

After that, she gets to the part when the incantation starts to have an effect on the wind and waters. The waters began to glow, right where they dropped the items and began to form a small whirlpool. At the same time, the clouds swirled right above the whirlpool and as it did so, as Eris reached the end of the incantation, a lightning struck from the sky to the water. After a fraction of a second, the lightning vanished, and both the sky and the water were still. But the water was still glowing and rippling.

Then suddenly, a tall pillar of water was rising. It was smooth at first but soon it took shape. It took the form of a great lady, so tall that Loki's head (the tallest of the five) was on the level of her chest. She had a flowing hair and a blurry body covered in a fluttering dress. As the water become flesh and the soft glow decreased, she opened her glowing eyes and glared at them.

The five teenagers knelt down and Eris said in the indistinctive language, "Hail Glasciesa, daughter of Our Father Below."

The figure walked towards them. She walked on the water gently and gracefully. With each step, ripples came from under her feet. As she touched the ground, the glow in the water, in her body and in her eyes faded and the five teenagers stood up.

Eris said in a whisper in the same language, "Milady, welcome to the human world. We have done our job to summon you. We wish to take no part in joining or in going against your plans; because our youthful human strength and speed cannot fulfill your desires. Just grant us that no harm will come upon us."

"I understand, my followers," said the figure. Her voice was feminine and icy. "I guess you should help me find hosts for my two children then."

Jack and Jill Tennyson, twin college students, walk together alone in a dark alley on their way home from the club with their friends. They walked close together because suddenly they felt cold. They didn't wear any jackets because it was very warm when they left and went to the club.

As they were walking, they suddenly felt a slight breeze from behind them. When they looked behind them, they saw a fog. It was moving towards them but not for them. The fog passed by them and encircled them. They held each other close. Then they heard a soft cracking sound. Then they felt something cold on their feet. They saw it was frost-living frost. Frost that was creeping in on them. They tried to move but the frost kept their feet glued to the ground. The siblings hugged each other. The frost entered their pants and entered their skin. And through their internal organs, the frost was racing itself towards the siblings' hearts. They were screaming and crying for help. But no one can hear them.

They felt the cold in their chest and in their head and their whole body till they felt frozen. But really, they're not frozen. Someone else has taken over their bodies. And these possessors made an effect to the bodies they "borrowed". The siblings' faces changed from tan to pale white that was almost blue. And their hair turned white and icy and spiked like icicles. The color and appearance of their clothes changed from casual spring wear to cold blue and gray winter outfits.

Once their transformation was complete, the frost on their feet disappeared into their pants. And out of the fog were the great lady and the teenagers who summoned her. The lady said to them, "Thank you my followers. You may go back to your ways."

The teenagers bowed and left as the fog disappeared. And as it did, the lady and the two were gone completely. The alley was empty. It began to rain.
