The anxious knot in my stomach was growing unbearable. Months of preparation had led us to this moment. It seemed like a lifetime ago we’d fought our way out of the Troian Center and found shelter with the Betos in the rainforest. Since then I’d become a new woman. Or at least I was trying to be. I’d embraced my role as the Eva and studied the history of my people. But my education was short lived. It seemed that my destiny would seek me out before I was ready. Brutal attacks lead by the Ravinori, ending in utter devastation for the Betos, had forced my decision to return to the place I had fled. I was in search of the missing Pillars and a way to stop the dark forces from gaining power. We’d fought for every inch we gained on our voyage back to the Troian Center, but now that we were finally here on the precipice of my destiny, I felt stiflingly uneasy.
We marched forward out of the protective tree line of the forest and into the open field; a wall of bodies, hands clasped moving with purpose toward the Troian Center. Even though we had the protection of Remi’s invisibility power, I still felt tense and exposed. My heart pounded with uncertainty as a cool wind rushed past and we picked up speed. I could barely feel the strange sensation of lightness that being invisible provided. My skin tingled, but it felt more like nerves than magic. The last time I’d been invisible the sensation had felt much more intense, which had me worried that maybe it wasn’t working right. The possibility that Remi wasn’t strong enough to stretch his power over all of us made me shutter with fear. This was more people than he’d ever tried to share his power with before.
