A New Revelation
 
 
Arabella and Astrid are on a hunting trip in the Adirondack Mountains, Arabella just returned from hunting by herself.
Astrid: “How was the hunt?”
Arabella: “Really good, I caught a deer for dinner.”
Arabella drags the deer near their fire pit and starts to prepare it. After a little while they start to eat.
Astrid: “It’s really gross… but also really good at the same time.”
Arabella: “(laughs) You’ll get use to it. So you ready to learn how to hunt?”
Astrid: “Totally.”
Arabella and Astrid take off into the woods and Arabella teaches her the basic of how to track you prey and the best way to attack.
Arabella: “(a little out of breath) You know for a new hybrid, you’re a natural.”
Astrid: “(laughs) Thanks.”
Astrid hears something walking towards them.
Astrid: “Do you hear that?”
Arabella: “Yeah.”
A giant black wolf emerges from the brush and stares at Astrid.
Arabella: “Is that Erik?”
Astrid: “Yeah, looks like he tracked us here.”
He shifts back into a human.
Erik: “You were suppose to tell me when the hunting trip was.”
Astrid: “Crap! I new I forgot something.”
Erik: “You’re always forgetting something.”
Before Astrid could say anything back he kisses her.
Astrid: “Hmm, your lucky I love you.”
Erik: “(smiling) Oh I know.”
Erik notices a odd smell in the air.
Erik: “What‘s that weird smell?”
Arabella: “Stay alert.”
Astrid: “What’s wrong?”
Arabella: “We are being watched.”
Erik: “Any idea who it could be?”
Arabella: “No.”
Erik: “I’m sure we will find out.”
Some one walk out into the clearing and stands in front of Arabella.
Arabella: “Who are you?”
He just stands there, not talking, he just stares at Astrid.
Arabella: “Well, this is a little weird.”
Astrid: “Yeah, especially since he won’t stop staring at me.”
Erik: “Should we just kill him?”
Astrid: “Why would we do that? He isn’t doing anything.”
Erik: “He could be evil.”
Astrid: “(rolls her eyes)That’s not a good enough reason to kill someone Erik.”
Arabella: “He could be right though, what if he is here to hurt us.”
Astrid: “If he hurts us then we will kill him.”
Arabella: “So, what is your name?”
He still doesn’t answer.
Arabella: “You have two choices, talk or die.”
He turns and looks at Arabella.
???: “My name is Blayne.”
Arabella: “Why are you here Blayne?”
Blayne: “That is none of your concern.”
Arabella: “Whatever, just leave.”
Blayne: “No, I don’t want to.”
Blayne glares at Astrid again and she suddenly is thrown backwards and slams into a tree.
Astrid: “Ow, what the fuck just happened? Was that you Blayne?”
Blayne: “Yes.”
Astrid: “Why the hell did you do that to me?”
Blayne: “I wanted to.”
Arabella: “You’re a warlock?”
Blayne: “Yes.”
Arabella: (thinking out loud) Why would a warlock be trying to kill a hybrid? Hybrids have done nothing to upset warlocks, there should be no reason for this to be happening.”
Blayne: “I’m not trying to kill her.”
Astrid: “Then why did you do that?”
Blayne: “I’m here to study you and that man. Hybrids are new to me and I wish to know more about them and their abilities.”
Arabella: “That’s fine but there was no reason to hurt her.”
Blayne: “There was actually, I want to test their limits of pain, and see how long it takes them to change into wolf form.”
Arabella: “Try to be nice if you can.”
Blayne: “I will try.”
Blayne stares at Erik and he starts screaming and doubles over. After a few minutes he turn into a wolf, he tests Astrid and gets the same result.
Blayne: “Your pain tolerance it fairly good, you change quickly like you should.”
Erik: “Why is that a good thing?”
Blayne: “Being able to change quickly mean you are easily able to defend your self when needed. You are of course stronger in wolf form than in human, so naturally you would want to switch form as quick as possible.”
Astrid: “That makes sense.”
Blayne: “I want you to fight each other.”
Astrid: “What?”
Erik: “Why?”
Blayne: “(sigh) To test your strength obviously.”
Reluctantly Astrid and Erik fight. It was almost a even match but Astrid pined Erik down and he couldn’t get away from her.
Astrid: “(laughing) I’m stronger than you.”
Erik: “Keep laughing, ill get you back for this.”
She laughs at him again. She kisses him and helps him up.
Blayne: “Females are always stronger than males.”
Erik: “That kind of sucks.”
Blayne: “You would think that.”
Arabella: “Anything else you need?”
Blayne: “No, I have what I need.”
Blayne leaves.
Erik: “Now what?”
Astrid: “Lets go home.”
They hear a weird noise, then and angel flies down and lands next to Arabella.
Astrid: “Hi Vivian.”
Vivian: “Hi.”
Astrid: “What’s up?”
Vivian: “Nothing really.”
Astrid: “Do you need anything?”
Vivian: “Well I finally learned how to give people wings and was wondering if anyone wanted to be able to fly.”
Astrid: “That’s cool you can do that. So you can basically turn people into an angel?”
Vivian: “More or less yeah. So do any one of you want wings?”
Astrid: “Uh, no thanks.”
Arabella: “I do.”
Erik: “So do I.”
Vivian: “Awesome. Lets move over into the clearing.”
They all follow Vivian.
Erik: “So how does this work?”
Vivian: “With my new magical powers I can have the wings grow out of your shoulders.”
Arabella: “Will it hurt?”
Vivian: “Well yeah, you have wings growing out of your back.”
Arabella: “I’m ready.”
Erik: “So am I.”
Vivian: “Okay, Arabella your first. Come lay down on your stomach.”
Arabella: “Okay.”
Arabella lays down on her stomach. Vivian places her hands on both of Arabella‘s shoulder blades. She starts to chant something in a unknown language, her hands start to glow and wings start growing out of her back, Arabella starts screaming.
Erik: “That looks painful.”
Vivian finished giving Arabella wings, she does the same things to Erik.
Erik: “That was really painful but totally worth it.”
Arabella: “So how do I fly?”
Vivian: “Just think about flapping your wings and they will respond instantly. It very easy once you get the hang of it.”
Erik starts to flap his wings and he flies over to where Astrid is and tries to land on her shoulders. They both fall to the ground.
Astrid: “Why did you do that?”
Erik: “I thought it would be fun.”
Astrid: “Asshole.”
Arabella: “He’s always been one.”
Astrid laughs.
Erik: “Ugh.”
Astrid: “So can you pick me up and fly me around?”
Erik: “Yes, yes I can.”
Erik picks Astrid up in his arms and he starts to fly around for a little while. Then they go back to where Arabella is supposed to be.
Astrid: “That was fun. Where’s Arabella?”
Erik: “She was suppose to be right here.”
Astrid: “(looks around) Shit. Look, you can see where she was dragged away, but the trail ends after a few minutes.”
Erik: “We need to find her.”
They start looking all over the woods for Arabella, but couldn’t find her anywhere.
Else where…
Arabella: “Ugh my head, what happened?”
Blayne: “You’re at my house.”
Arabella: “Blayne? Why did you knock me out? If you had asked I would have went with you.”
Blayne: “Sorry, I wasn’t sure that you would, being that you don’t know me. We need to talk about Astrid.”
Arabella: “Ah okay… what about her?”
Blayne: “She’s my sister.”
Arabella: “Are you sure?”
Blayne: “My dad sent me a letter saying that I have a twin sister named Astrid. He sent a picture of her and I together before they separated us. She’s very young in the picture but you know its her.”
Arabella: “Are you going to tell her, do you want me to help you tell her?”
Blayne: “Yes, it is very important that she knows.”
Arabella: “Why?”
Blayne: “ After the next full moon she will turn into a witch. She will have to stay home, no one can see her when she gets her powers.”
Arabella: “Why.”
Blayne: “You’ll understand when you see it.”
Arabella: “We should go.”
Blayne: “Yeah.”
Arabella and Blayne go back to her house. She walks in the door.
Astrid: “Arabella!! Thank god you’re okay.”
Arabella: “There is someone here to see you.”
Blayne walks in.
Astrid: “Hi Blayne.”
Blayne: “Hello, how are you?”
Astrid: “I’m fine. How are you?”
Blayne: “Okay. There is something we need to talk about.”
Astrid: “What is it?”
Arabella: “You have a brother.”
Astrid: “I do?”
Blayne: “I’m your brother.”
Astrid: “Oh.”
Erik: “Wow, I wasn‘t expecting that.”
Astrid: “Me either.”
Erik: “Are you okay?”
Astrid: “Yeah.”
Erik doesn’t believe her. 
Erik: “Can I talk to you in the kitchen?”
Astrid: “Uh, sure.”
They head to the kitchen.
Erik: “Are you sure that you’re okay?”
Astrid: “Yeah, I’m just surprised that’s all.”
Erik: “I can understand that.”
Erik kisses her right as Blayne walks in.
Blayne: “Oh sorry.”
He turns to leave.
Astrid: “Its okay. What do you need?”
Blayne: “I have to tell you something, it’s very important.”
Astrid: “Is it okay that Erik here?”
Blayne: “Yes of course.”
Astrid: “So, what is it you  need to tell me?”
Blayne: “Sometime after day break tomorrow you will become a witch.”
Erik: “What do you mean?”
Blayne: “She is going to obtain powers, what they will be is a mystery.”
Erik: “Why is she getting them?”
Blayne: “ Being first born child of our parents who are also witches she automatically gets powers.”
Erik: “Then how do you have powers if she’s a first born?”
Blayne: “We are twins.”
Astrid: “Okay, I need a minute.”
Astrid leaves the kitchen and goes up to her room to be alone. Blayne and Erik go back into the living room with the others.
Arabella: “Where’s Astrid?”
Erik: “She went into her room, she got a little overwhelmed by everything. She just needs a little time alone to think it through.”
Arabella: “Ah makes sense. It‘s a lot to take in. ”
Blayne: “Should I go talk to her?”
Erik: “No, I will go up in a little bit to check on her.”
Blayne: “Okay.”
Half an hour later Erik goes up stairs and knocks on her door.
Astrid: “Who is it?”
Erik: “Its me.”
Astrid: “Come in.”
Erik: “How are you doing?”
Astrid: “I’m okay, I just don’t know how I should handle all of this.”
Erik: “I wouldn’t either.”
Astrid: “What am I suppose to do. How will I control myself?”
Erik: “Babe don’t worry so much.”
He kisses her again and it helps her relax a little knowing Erik will always be there to help her. Arabella walks in.
Arabella: “Gross.”
Astrid: “Maybe if you had knocked before you walked in you…”
Erik: “What do you need?”
Arabella: “I wanted to see how you were doing but it looks like you’re okay.”
Astrid: “I’m fine, this is just a lot to take in right now.”
Arabella: “Yeah I understand. We will get through it together.”
Astrid: “Thanks you guys, I feel a little better.”
They all go back down stairs and see Blayne bending fire.
Astrid: “Wow!”
Blayne looks at Astrid not realizing that the fire is moving to where he is looking and the fire burns Astrid in the face.
Astrid: “Ahh.”
Blayne: “Oh no, Astrid I’m so sorry!”
She runs out of the house before Blayne could anything.
