Kay paused her reading when she heard Trish speak up, "you're not a freak Trish. You're an incredible young kid who is wise beyond her years" she told her truthfully, looking at her. "when I was your age, I thought the same thing about myself. I thought I was a freak of nature, I was lost and trying to compute my whole life had turned upside down and reset. My birth mother died when I was only 8 years old and by the time I was 9, my father walked out on me. Leaving me to fend for myself in our home until Sam figured out what happened. She told her parents and they took me in and adopted me, before they decided it was better if we all moved out of London and fly back to Seattle. But through that grief of losing both my birth parents, my phoenix side was starting to bloom. The nightmares made Fee summon our wings to wrap round me in comfort. I began hearing her voice in my head, making me think I was going crazy, Sam's parents put me into therapy because I was finding myself having sleepwalked miles from home some days, all because my subconscious mind was trying to ignite my phoenix bloodline...."

"so I get what you're going through Trish. But believe me, you are anything but a freak. You are incredible and far more smart than I was at your age. A girl who I know Josh is incredibly proud of every single day" she explained to her, lifting Trish's head up with her index finger and thumb and gave her a reassuring smile. "you got this kiddo" she smiled.

Chas nodded, happy that Serena agreed to keep her own truth a secret from who they were heading to see. "good. The less this guy learns about you the better. You need to keep the upper hand and advantage with him, just as you do with anyone who has links to the downworld." he replied to her. Josh too got into the cab when Chas and Serena were talking and waited for them both to be done, then looked out the window when Chas did eventually start driving into town and round the backstreets in particular.

Trish smiled and nodded. “Thank you Kay…I just worry if I’m holding Josh back…and where these gifts came from…and what if Josh has them too? I’m worried about so many things…” she lowered her head, tears resting on her eyes.

Serena climbed in and looked out the window, thinking. Then she looked at the coin and muttered “how does this all tie together…”

Kay listened to her speak, honestly understanding where she was coming from, even if their abilities were entirely different. Kay also if she was entirely honest with herself, saw a lot of herself in Trish to a certain extent, she could see how much Trish cared about other people, cared for her brother. The moment she saw the tears fall down the young girl's face, she moved the book slightly and pulled the girl into a hug. "like with everything else, we'll figure it out. You don't ever have to worry about anything alone okay?" she told her.

Josh shrugged as he sat in the back seat, "I don't know but something tells me we'll figure it out soon enough" he replied, hoping he was right but also unsure if he really wanted to know the answer. "these things always do." Chas spoke up as he turned up one more back alley that opened out just enough to be able park the cab. "it's that back door on the right there. The antique store" he commented.

Trish nodded, wiping her eyes and said “I just don’t want to be a burden to him…his done so much for me and given up so much…”

Serena opened the door and got out, shutting it behind her and pulling her coat closer to her chest. “Let’s go knocking…” she walked up to the door and checked to see if it was unlocked or open

Kay stroked her hair, tucking a few strands behind Trish's ear. "hey, you're not a burden to your brother. He loves you dearly, that much is very clear. Just as its clear that he'd do absolutely anything to make you happy and keep you safe." she told her. "but I can guarantee to you from what I've witnessed that a burden is the one thing he does not think about you as or see you as" she reassured her. Glancing around them, seeing John fast asleep and she figured her questions about her necklace could wait. "why don't we go watch a film on John's Netflix or something? He'll be okay here and if he does wake up and need me, I'll feel it in the bond. But you need cheering up." she smiled. "actually, I got a better idea...why don't we go bake some brownies?" she said.

Chas and Josh quickly followed suit in getting out of the cab, Chas locking it up swiftly after and looked at the shop. He really hoped this guy they knew could help them, and with little drama." let me do the majority of the talking" Chas said as he walked with the two of them to the door. He grabbed the handle and opened the door, a bell at the top ringing as he did so and stepped inside.

Trish smiled softly and nodded. “Brownies sound good…I love baking…I used to do it all the time with mom…” she got up so Kay could and rubbed her eyes.

Serena nodded and followed behind him, looking around the shop with wide eyes as soon as hey made into the shop. “Whoa…”

Kay smiled and let Trish get up first and off the bed. She quickly scribbled a note for John to say they were downstairs and placed it on his bedside table, just incase he woke up panicked and she couldn't get upstairs in time. She then got off the bed and straightened her clothing out, "well then, I guess you'll be a good helper!" she said to Trish with a smile, and heading downstairs with her, straight to the kitchen. Once in the kitchen, she opened the various cupboards to find everything they'd need and the fridge to get out the other ingredients.

"it's an impressive amount of stock but I can probably guarantee that most of this stuff wasn't obtained legally" Chas commented after noting how Serena reacted to it all. "if it wasn't you, I'd take some kind of offence to that Chas Chandler" the rugged scrawny bloke behind the counter spoke up, walking out of the dark part and into the more lit area. "good job it's me then." Chas replied, "so what do you want? Where's John, you don't normally visit without him" the guy replied, looking around for the recognisable blonde in a trenchcoat. "busy elsewhere. We've come on behalf on him. We need you to identify this for us, so we can figure out it's owner" Chas explained, letting Serena hand over the coin.

Trish sat on the counter so she was out of the way for Kay when she asked “how are you doing with this kid thing? Feeling better about it?”

Serena stepped forward and held out the coin in the light, fighting not to use her shadows. It was a lot harder then she thought. “We found this at a scene of a fight. We were hoping you could tell us more about it”

She started putting the ingredients together in a mixing bowl, managing to get the volumes of things just by eye and making sure Trish got involved as well by asking her to hand things over and such. At her question, Kay paused for a millisecond as she thought about her answer before replying, "I'm still scared crapless about it. I'm not going to lie, it's a lot to take in. But it seeming that the universe isn't going to let me have any say in this situation and I'm just going to have to get used to it. It's not that I wouldn't want a family with John, or think he's not worthy of being a father, because it's far from that... I'm just worried about being a mother and bringing a kid into this world of magic and darkness. I'm still getting used to the fact I'm not 100% human. Let alone in the future I'm a mother" she explained, trying not to use too many complex words. "saying that though, I know after talking with John about it, that I can have the hope we can do it...together." she added.

The shop keeper stepped forward and took the coin from her, scrutinising it intensely before putting it under a magnifying glass to check it further. "Interesting, very interesting indeed" he murmured to himself as he looked it over constsntly. Eventually he looked up and handed the coin back to Serena. "you said you found it at a scene of a fight? I'm guessing a magical fight if this is to help John out" he assumed. "I can tell you who that belongs to though" he told them all, "but whether you'll like the information or not is another matter" he added as he started pacing back and forth. "Chas you'll know him, it's Papa Midnite." he said.

Trish nodded and said “at least your kid won’t go into the world of magic without help? I mean…look and me and josh? Everyone said I was crazy…and Josh had no idea what I was…still doesn’t…at least your daughter will have you guys and Chas and Serena to guide her…”

Serena looked at the keeper and kept her hands behind her back so she didn’t use her shadows by mistake. Then she asked “Who is Papa Midnight?”

Trish's words made sense to Kay, she knew deep down she was right yet it didn't fully stop the anxiety of the prospect of bringing a child up in this world. Then there was facts she hadn't even yet thought about: that their future child would be half phoenix, half mage and that would make her even more of ararity than Kay herself, putting her into so much danger. "yeah...you're right. I just hope we can be successful in keeping her safe" she replied, mixing everything together then carefully pouring the mixture into a square tin. "Wanna be the one to sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top?" she asked, changing the subject.

"Someone we gotta tread lightly around." Chas stated matter of factly before deciding to give more information on. "He and John have never liked each other and always screw each other over if they can. Papa Midnite is a voodoo user and someone who will gladly work with any asshole in the downworld to get what he wants. He killed his own sister so he could use her skull as a way of communication to the afterlife" he explained with an aggravated sigh, pinching the bridge of his nose. "Shoulda guessed he'd hear about you know who and would want them for himself" he said again annoyed.

Trish smiled and nodded, picking up the bag of chips and starting to pour them out. Then said “the other person Serena saw…do you think the boy is Serena and joshs kid? That I become an aunty?”

Serena had to hold her hands to stop the shaking and stop shadows from flying around to hunt down this murderer. “Well then…that means we pay him a visit and see who hired him…he can’t be working alone…then we make sure he doesn’t hurt anyone else…” her eyes were glowing and she hadn’t noticed yet.

"I do, it certainly alluded to that Trish, which means our families remain strong together hopefully if the kids were seen together in that vision" Kay replied to her as she let her put the chocolate chips in the batter. "It also means that Josh and Serena were cleverly mesnt to meet and be one" she added, "or that's what my sister Sam would say anyway" she smiled with a soft chuckle, thinking about what a hopeless romantic Sam always was and seemed to still be. With the chips put in, she grabbed the tray and walked to the oven where she opened the door and put the tray in, closing the door and leaning against the counter.

Josh noticed her eyes glowing and instantly placed his hand on top of hers, squeezed it gently then wrapped an arm round her, "your eyes are glowing" he whispered into her ear as Chas listened to what she was saying, "no one can seem to kill Papa Midnite, it's best we don't confront him in a fight. Trust me, he almost killed John numerous times, he's not to be messed with" Chas explained back. "Chas is right lady, no one messes with that man. He's high up in the Downworld. You'd be beat to listen to Chas" the keeper chimed in. "if papa Midnite is involved in whatever you guys and John is? Then Midnite is pulling the strings" he added.

Trish frowned and then said “if it’s true…I wonder what kind of powers the boy will have thanks to both his parents having gifts?”

Serena closed her eyes to calm down, muttering softly “if he goes for John or anyone else with me around…he won’t know what hit him…I don’t back down from threats to my family…” she turned to face away from the keeper, having a hard tim e hiding what she was at the moment.

Kay thought about what Trish was theorising and shrugged, "I guess anything is possible really" she replied, "it makes me also wonder just what my future kid is fully capable of. I can only imagine what it must have been like for Chas and Bane to witness it in action" she added.

"I think it's time we should go" Chas suggested to Josh and Serena, to which Josh nodded in agreement. "I think you're right" Josh agreed. "What about compensating me for my information?" the keeper asked Chas, "consider it your pay back for what you owe John" Chas replied back, shoeing strictly in his tone that he wasn't going to be accepting any other response other than 'okay'. The keeper got the hint and just nodded, "fine.." he replied, letting them all leave.

Trish nodded and swung her legs a little but then asked “Kay…can Josh and I stay with you guys?”

As soon as they got outside Serena cursed and hit the wall with her fist, both of them hearing the bones brake. “I hate this. I just want to stop all of this! I hate seeing those close to me getting hurt. Watching Kay and John like this…why does it matter if I’m kept a secret? I’m not the most important here…”

Kay looked at Trish when she asked the question she did, before choosing her words to speak up, "its not my place to give you that answer Trish, this is John's place after all. But I'm sure if you ask John when he's better you'll have an answer. He took in me and Serena after all, so maybe there's room for you and Josh as well. It's clear this millhouse is more than just a millhouse. For all we both know it could create rooms" she smiled, chuckling at the end comment of hers.

Both Josh and Chas flinched in surprise at Serena punching the wall when they got outside, both knowing that she would have broken some bones in her hand. "Serena... Don't ever say you're not important because you are. I know you hate this, but unfortunately it seems this world of yours has these troubles" Josh told her, taking her hand to check it. "Josh is right, no one said this was going to be easy. This is why John was walked this path alone for the most part and usually does all he can to drive people away. But I can tell you right now, if you had shown what you were in there, he would have sold you on the black market in the downworld before you can say Kay's name. As I said before we got here, he's not to be trusted when it comes to that side of things, but he is when it's information involved. As for Papa Midnige, I'm not having you go near him. He's too strong, even for John sometimes." Chas began explaining.

"I need you to promise me you won't do anything reckless when it comes to this guy and we need to get you back to the millhouse to see to your hand" he added, practically giving her pleading look.

Trish sighed and nodded “ right…and I should ask Josh first anyway…it’s just been better here…I don’t feel like such a freak..”

Serena was breathing hard, her eyes glowing now. “I can’t Chas…this man is a danger…I can’t just sit back and let people get hurt…” she was shaking as Josh held her busted hand. She seemed like another force had taken over.

Trish's words made Kay smile because she did honestly feel she could understand where Trish was coming from. "I know what you mean kiddo. It's how I feel about this place as well. I don't think I'll ever be able to thank John enough for taking me in when I really needed it. Squatting in abandoned buildings or in alleyways was getting real hard to deal with. Not to mention crazily cold and risky" she told her as she grabbed a drink and sipped it.

Chas sighed as Josh tried to keep Serena calm by rubbing her shoulders. "Midnite deals in cursed objects and just scamming people out of their money by using his voodoo abilities. He's a con man if no one stands in his way. You HAVE to keep away from him Serena. You won't be letting anyone get hurt by continuing on with your life as if you didn't learn of his existence." Chas explained. "so I'm pulling rank here and taking you and josh back to the millhouse and I'm not taking any backchat from you about it" he added.

Trish nodded and said “I don’t think Josh would go for it…I just don’t think it’s right him having to give up everything for my sake…it’s not fair…”

Serena looked at him and he saw her eyes had changed. More then silver. They looked like the night sky and glowing as she said in a voice that wasn’t her own “I can’t let a man like that harm others because it suits him…the arts are not meant to be used for personal gain…” she was shaking and her skin was ice cold under Joshs hands. Something was wrong.
