    Ice reached to touch his ears, hesitated, then continued. They felt soft, and cat-like.
    "They are so soft," Ice commented. Vate seemed to blush, but Ice couldn't really tell.

    "W. .Why thank you." He replied, straightening.

    "I guess being a cat has perks!"

    Ice giggled. Just then one of the teleporter's teleported to the wrong place and fell. Ice started in alarm. The man was not getting up. Both Vate and she ran over.
    The man was gasping for air, clearly a sign that he had broken at least one rib and it had punctured his lung.
    While Vate called for an stretcher to take the man to the infirmary, Ice gently smoothed back the mans hair.
    "You're going to be alright," she said. The man's ragged breathing lessened. There was something odd about this moment. Through touching the man, Ice felt an outflow of power, a vast power, that she had never felt anything like in her life.

    As two men helped carry the stretcher towards the infirmary, Vate jogged alongside the man.
    He frowned.

    Being part animal, vate had the ability to sense the emotions and auras around him, he had felt Ice's surprise when she had touched the man but he could not feel anything from the man himself.
    That fact alone was almost as troubeling as the injury itself.

    The two men swiftly set the injured fellow down inside the infirmary and stepped back for Vate to start his work.
    "I just don't have the medics. . " he mummered, sounding slightly fearful.

    "Alright. . . I'm going to try something. .. Risky to stabelize him. . ."

    Ice was still surprised when Vate spoke.
    "I can help you," she said softly.

    He looked at her and nodded. "I suppose you'll have to do," he said, but not unkindly.

    "How may I assist?" Ice asked.

    He looked at her with a pained expresion.

    "I may need to feed off your energy. . . I just don't know fi you can handel it. ."
    Ice was mildly startled. Feed off her energy?

    "What do you mean?"
    Vate was already moving, pulling out a small tear shaped necklace from a box and placing it on.
    "Magyk healing. . . But I am not strong enough to do it myself."
    He offered his hand out to her, Ice saw that it was beginning to glow a soft shade of blue.

    "Will you help?"

    Ice nodded without hesitation, "Of course." She took his hand and Vate started to heal the man.
    The sensation of energy being taken from her wasn't the most pleasant, but she felt that it wasn't the worse thing that she had ever been through. She focused on the task at hand and didn't let her mind wonder. She knew that would be expending the energy that this man might need to survive.

    After what felt like an eternity, Vate released her hand.
    Ice staggered back, fatigue rushing over her body. She gripped the wall and looked over to Vate.

    The young healer had collapsed to his knees, breathing heavly.

    Ice breathed a sigh of relief. "This may sound strange, but, I think I have healed before. That is, before I fell into this world."

    "Really?" Vate asked, still panting.

    She nodded, "And I didn't faint!" She started to laugh, somewhat hysterically. "Oi, today has been so much. I think we both deserve a good dinner and rest."

    "That sounds. . . Heavenly." The cat boy agreed, smiling. He looked down at the man who was sleeping peafully now.

    "I will have one of the other healers tend to him."

    ~{*}~

    Upon entering the Mess Hall, the first thing Vate noticed was that The Circus Master nor The Commander were present.
    The second thing he noticed was that Celestial was sitting at a table for four with a young man with reddish-blonde hair and an eye patch.
    Vate grinned, widely. "Look whos back. . . "

    "Who?" Ice asked, looking over at the table. "Well, let's go and join them."
    They got their dinner and went to sit at the table with Celestial and the person Ice didn't know.

    "Hello stranger." Vate commented as he took a seat.
    The young man with the eye patch laughed cheerfully.

    "And greetings to you, kitten."
    He had a soft British accent and a mellow voice.
    "I'm so glad you all missed me!"

    Celestial elbowed him and the side. "Shut it, Vexos, it was peacful without you."
    He laughed and shoved the white haired girl back. "Oh come on, Love. It isn't any fun here without us all together."
    He stopped and smiled curiously at Ice. "Hello Ma'am, I don't believe we met before." he extended his hand.

    "I am Vexos."

    Ice shook his hand. "I'm Ice." She said. "We haven't met. I'm new to the Circus. I've only been here about a month."

    "Oh, I see," Vexos said.

    "So, where are you from?" Ice asked.

    "Oh, just a layer of England most do not know exist." he replied with a slight smile.
    "But honestly, I perferr my time here!"

    Celestial laughed softly and nodded.

    "But enough about me," Vexos added.
    "What happened to the likes you?" he looked from Ice to Vate.
    "You both look utterly spent!"

    Ice and Vate looked at each other.
    "Well, for me," Ice started, "it has been quite a long day. Finding out I'm faelven and growing wings, passing out yet again, and that a guy thinks I'm his fiance; just things like that."

    "We had an emergency," Vate said. "A teleporter broke his ribs and punctured his lung when he was practicing."

    He paused and Ice continued for him, "We had to use both our energies to stabilize him."

    Vexos whistled softly. "My, you have had a long day. . ."

    Vate nodded, biting into his food.
    "The patcient is doing much better now. . ."

    Celestial gave Vate a concerned glance.
    "Magyk healing takes quite a bit out of you, will you be alright?"

    The cat boy merely smiled.
    "Of course, nothing a little bit of food and rest cannot fix."

    "Vate, you have had a long day," Ice said. "Having to take care of me and then that man." Ice shook her head and added softly, "The poor man."

    She finished her meal. "It was nice talking with you all but," she yawned then continued, "I'd best be going to bed."

    Ice slowly wandered to her tent, enjoying the chilly night air. So much had happened. She had so much to think about. Inside her tent, she was alone. Mirage and Shadowstep were out. She went to take a shower. Her wings were growing even larger. She wondered what she would look like when he wings came in. Touching them, she winced, for the skin covering them was tender. After putting on the salve, she made her way to bed and fell asleep almost instantly... and she drempt.

    Something was following her. She ran through a forest, leaping over fallen branches and dead tree roots. She ran on until she came to a small clearing where a large, smooth-faced rock stood. Dozens of smaller rocks stood around it, making a circle.
    "Welcome to your destiny, child," a voice said. A faerie appeared at the top of the rock. Her purplish skin and black hair made her known as a dark faerie.

    "My destiny?" Ice asked, "What destiny?"

    "The one I am about to give you," the faerie laughed somewhat evilly. "You know it is your destiny, for you are of my blood."

    "What?" Ice asked. "Tell me, dark fae, what do you suppose to be telling me?"

    "You, Alicesis Valentine, are my niece," the faerie continued.

    "No! My mother and her family is dead," Ice protested.

    "Your father has been lying to you for years on end," the fae said a bit sadly. "Now, it is time."
    The circle began to glow. The faerie started to speak the ancient words.

    "No!" Ice yelled. But it didn't matter, she couldn't resist. A power so dark and pure spread into her. It was very vast, deep, almost feeling without end. The ceremony was complete.
    "It feels so... limitless," Ice observed, dipping into her own power.

    "Aye, that it does," said the faerie. "Now, you have a mission to go on."

    "I do?" Ice questioned. "W-what is your name?"

    "Nightshade," the faerie said.

    ************************

    Ice woke up, a cold sweat all over her body. The tent was quiet. It was still dark outside, the sun barely at the horizon. Ice had to get out. Throwing on some clothes, she ran outside and into the forest. She ran and ran until she came to a spring. She wanted to know why. Why it was all happening to her. Who was she? Why was she here? She felt the cold wind and quickly realized she had forgotten her coat.

    Her heart pounded and she sank to her knees. A pain on her back caused her to start. Then she realized something. On her back, her wings were finishing growing. The pain was the skin that was still over them splitting. Her wings were coming out almost like a caterpillar comes out of its chrysalis. She endured the pain as her skin split and the wings appeared, crumpled. She knew they would become vibrant once the blood got to them.

    "Ice?" a concerned female voice suddenly called.

    Ice looked back, wincing as she did. Kneeling on an extended tree branch was Celestial, a bow and quiver of arrows at hand.
    "Ice!!"

    She leapt down from the tree and dashed over to the fallen girl, looking her over in shock.
    "Oh my Gods, We need to get you back now!!"

    "I'm okay," Ice said, trying to sit up. The pain was terrible, but she managed to. She closed her eyes as another wave of pain came from her back. "These wings better never been cut off again!" she hissed.

    "Ice, you've lost a lot of blood," Celestial said, kneeling beside her.

    "I'm fine, really," Ice replied, waving her off. She grit her teeth, wishing that she hadn't moved. Another piece of skin broke free as one of the wings tore out of their cell.

    Without warning, Celestial gripped Ice's arm. Causing her to look up in surprise.
    The white haired girl's eyes were closed, her form had taken on a soft glow.

    "Celestial?"
    Suddenly, she started to dissolve. Truly vanish into a shimmering dust, the same started to over come Ice.
    She nearly paniced as the weightless, bubbly feeling fell over her, but no sooner did she blink did she realize they were right back at The Circus.
    Celestial helped her to her feet and escourted her to the infirmary.

    "I guess I didn't have a choice in the matter," Ice muttered as she stumbled into the infirmary.
    Inside, there was a very surprised Vate.
    "Hello, Vate," Ice said. "Sorry about this. My wings are braking out of their shells and Celestial didn't give me a choice or not. Apparently she thinks I'm loosing a lot of blood."

    Vate got to his feet, placing down the book he had been reading.
    He had paled dramatically as they had entered.

    "Err, I believe she is correct, Ice. . ."
    He whirled around and rummaged through his supplies. Coming back with an IV, gauze, and various medicines.

    "P-please, sit!"

    Ice did as she was told. There was, after all, no way out of it.
    Another piece of skin tore and her wing unfurled as Vate and Celestial attended to her.
    "I feel fine," Ice said to no one in particular. Another wave of pain tore through her back as the last pieces of skin started stretching out. She made fists and prepared herself for the final rips.
