Chapter 9: Leaving home

Getting a sketchy looking letter from the OAA (Omnis Animorum Academy) which contains a text that explains why my 'human' parents are not allowed to drop me off at the school. Apparently it is forbidden for normal people to know the exact location of the school. 'For safety reasons' they said. This actually made me a little worried and scared at the same time. I'll be at a place which none of my family members will be able to reach if there may be a case that I will need them. But, that is not what I've told my parents, of course. Otherwise they would have never let me attend the OAA. I just gave them a random address of a school that is nearby. My mother knew the existence of the school but didn't know its location, thank God. I told my parents that it would be easier for me to adapt if I went on the road with someone I already knew that also attends the school; in this case that is Olivia. Leaving them was not easy at all. I cried while saying goodby and so did my mother. I've never been away from her for this long. -It's for the best.- I try convincing myself in my thoughts.


Going over to Olivia's and waiting for our ride to arrive at midnight, was a misery. Besides the fact it was way too cold for a summer night, the ride was also a good twenty minutes late. -Way to go with the OAA service..- I thought. When suddenly a nice looking black BMW X6 parked in front of her front yard I was shocked at the thought that this was our ride to the OAA. I was not expecting a this fancy car as a ride to the creepy boarding school with a stupid name. 'Not for normal people' I remember. "Why would anyone call a school by that name."I think. Must say it does sound cool in Latin, but it still is stupid.

Coming out of the black X6 I can see Jacob heading towards us. We were standing in front of Olivia's house with our luggages waiting, as I mentioned before. "Wow Jess, you're taking a lot of stuff to a place you don't like or want to attend. Are you secretly smuggling your parents within those luggages or something?" Jacob says amusingly and laughing for a short amount of time while coming closer to me with open arms, to embrace me maybe? Olivia also laughs. "Ha-ha, really mature. Are you the funniest in your circle of friends?" I fire back bumping in to him and heading to the backseats leaving them all the work. I can feel him being a little disappointed. Why would he even try to hugging me?

Finally were they able to finish placing the luggages between all that chit chat and cared to step in the car. I heard them talk a little but couldn't make out what they were saying precisely. -Not that I care though, why would I..- I try convincing myself in my thoughts. Jacob steps in the car and puts his seatbelt on while Olivia enters the car. "Ladies, seatbelts please." Jacob says nonchalantly. "Already done, can we leave now? It's a trip of 5 hours. The sooner we leave the sooner we arrive. So please go a head.." I say irritated. "Fiery, just the way I like it." Jacob reacts. "Ha-ha." I say while attempting to lay down on the backseat in a comfortable position. "She's right Jacob, keep your eyes on the road. I hope you have slept enough.. Good thing Jessica chose to sit on the backseats now you don't have to dream, hehe." Olivia says smirkingly somehow teasing him, he turned a little red. I act like I'm already asleep and didn't hear any of that, but in my thoughts am I questioning the meaning behind that phrase like a maniac. -Could it be that Jacob is checking me out and Olivia figured it out? Does he have feelings for me? Does he like me? Does he think I'm beautiful? Ugh.. My head hurts- I start overthinking. I will have to get answers from Olivia once we're roommates at the OAA. Shouldn't be that hard I guess.

Listening to the crappy songs the radio was broadcasting I fell asleep. We were already an hour on the road before I fell asleep. I'm not sure how long I slept but I had a really weird dream. **A man sitting on top of me and choking me to death. His eyes were leaking a brown colored light. I could hear Olivia in the background also choking. We were in a car I suppose. The man on top of me wasn't trying to kill, just to weaken me or make me pass out. I could feel his eyes burning in to my mind and the brown light taking over. The man is now inside of my head and is controlling me. I'm numb and cant move, not without the man wanting me to. I feel like I have to obey him. But I can still hear everything in my surroundings. Olivia was still being choked, but she was suddenly able to throw the man choking her away from her. I could feel the car shuffling from her attack. Thinking that I'm now saved a sudden gunshot roars our surroundings. Silence takes over for milliseconds when and Jacob shouting "NO! Olivia!" in a way that broke my heart.** I wake up to the sound of a nearby car's horn. -Was that really necessary.. What does he even want- I question in my thoughts.

Three cars start circling around ours to slow us down. Suddenly our car is being lifted mid air while the motor is still running. We are being pulled to a stop by some force. From the sudden stop of the car I bump my head to the seat in front of me causing my forehead to bleed a little. "What is happening?!" I shout while touching my wound and noticing the blood. "Nothing good. Rebels with Psychic powers, a group fighting against the Elite. Are you okay?" Jacob says with a little shiver and care in his voice. "What do they want from us?" I try asking in confusion. "I.. I have no idea." Olivia responds a little scared. Jacob also doesn't seem to know what their purpose is. "Okay, well can't we just do some Psychic things and fly away or something?" I ask not sure if I should be scared or not. "That is beyond our limitations.." Olivia says while Jacob continues "They are with way too many. We have to either give them what they want or.." he stops. "Or what?" I ask now definitely scared "Or we'll get hunted." Jacob continues.

A strange silence takes over, our car still held mid air but now the engine has stopped. The three cars are blocking our way. All parked around us so we can't drive away. I'm basically shivering from the fear while Olivia is on her phone. Asking for help I guess? A sudden ringing sound reaches our eardrums, drilling on it. Olivia starts screaming from the pain while me and Jacob are following her lead. We're trying to block the sound with our palms without success. A male voice starts forming in my mind and the ringing stops. The male voice speaks "Give us the Halfbreed right now or face death."
