"For the millionth time, were are we going?" I asked, as Shane quickly dragged me
through the forest, dodging every tree in our way. With his hand holding mine tight,
I stumbled, but kept going, knowing that Shane would never in his life put me in
"I told you, Morgan, It's a surprise. Im going to show you something that nobody else
knows about. Shane said as he continued running, his bare feet making almost no sound
at all on the soft soil. His pitch-black hair flowed behind him, revealing his
pointed ears. He had never told me why they were pointed, he only reply that ever
came out of him was, "They just are." Those words echoed in my mind and the sound of
Shane's soft footsteps halted. I suddenly snapped back to realty and bumped into him.
I helped him up and looked at were he had stopped. Before us was the largest oak tree
I had ever seen.
"A tree... You led me all this way to a tree?" I asked.
"Not just a tree. It's different." He responded.
"Everything is different with you," I protested. "Its just a tree."
"Why do girls always have to be so stubborn? Just wait." He said. At that, he mumbled
a few soft words under his breath... A large golden door appeared in the tree. It was
finely crafted, with emerald green curvy lines covering it. I stared in amazement.
"What is this?" I asked. He looked over at me, smiling.
"Lithia...." He replied.
"What's a lithia?" I asked.
"Not what... Where." He said, his smile turning into a grin. He took my hand tightly
in his, opened the door, and led me away from our farmilliar home in Great Britain.
