The Lupe Sorcery: The Destiny Begins - Part Two

by lupeartist14

That night, Eniad couldn't sleep. The lie her father had told kept buzzing in her head. Finally, she couldn't take it. She had to tell someone.

"Psst! Cloud! Wake up!" she poked her sister.

"What's wrong?" asked Cloud, her face full of worry.

"Nothing, it's just, Dad lied to us," she avoided her younger sister's gaze when she said this.

"Huh? Why would he lie to us? About what?" Cloud demanded.

Eniad took a deep breath. "Look. This afternoon, when he said that Lupe was a lone Lupe, he was lying. He said he didn't know that Lupe, but he does. I could see it in his eyes. It pained him to lie. I don't know why he did that, but I don't like it," she whispered.

Cloud sat there, silent.

"I know you think I'm crazy. You don't have to say anything. I know I sound crazy, but it's like something inside me was telling me he was lying. I don't know," said Eniad.

"I don't think you're crazy. It's just, well, Dad's never lied to us before. Why would he do that now?" Cloud said softly.

"I dunno. He's been acting weird after this afternoon, after the attack."

"Can we talk about this tomorrow? I'm tired," said Cloud drowsily. "We can talk to Dad tomorrow,"

"WHAT?!" Eniad whispered fiercely. "You can't tell Dad! He'll get really angry. He'll probably start this lecture on accusing people of stuff! Keep it a secret, okay?" she added.

"Kay. Goodnight," And with a yawn, Cloud slumped into sleep.

Eniad smiled at her sister. She lay down and slowly drifted to sleep, glad to have something off her chest.

***

She was walking in the forest as an adult. She heard a noise, and quickly turned around. There was nothing there.

"Odd. I could've sworn I heard something," she mumbled to herself. Turning back around, she jumped. Cloud, Fanger, and Sport were all standing there, smiling at her.

"Guys! You're… adults!" she exclaimed.

Cloud grinned. "So are you." And with a wave of her paw, she conjured a mirror out of thin air. Eniad gazed at her adult body, then back at her sister.

"How did you do that?" she asked her.

All of her siblings smiled mischievously at her.

"It's my Gift," explained Cloud. "We all have it. So do you. Although we may have different powers, we all still have it. I can spot anything I want, and conjure objects out of thin air. Now, Eniad, you must discover what powers you have. It will help you in the future. We must go now."

"Good luck," added Sport. And then everything turned white as Eniad opened her eyes to a bright, shining morning.

"Huh?" she said groggily.

Her foot was extended up in the air and her tail was wedged between the floor and Fanger's tummy. Her ear was also wet; Sport had drooled on it in the middle of the night.

"Yuck! Sport!" she said with disgust. She shook herself, and Fanger awoke with a start, his eyes wide.

"Where'd he go? I had him in my clutches!" he said, dazed.

"It's clutches, nerd, not crutches," she snapped at him. "And you almost cut off the circulation in my tail last night!" she held up the limp form.

"I knew that," he muttered. "Sorry,"

They got up.

"I had a weird dream last night," she told him, scratching her ear, which was still wet.

"What was it about? Alien Aishas doing ballet?" he snickered.

"Ha ha. Very funny." She told him the dream. He responded with wide eyes.

"I had the same exact dream! But then I was chasing a Meerca across the desert and burning my feet."

"You had the same dream? Every detail?" she asked him. He nodded.

She bit her lower lip. "Wake up Sport and ask him what his dream was. I'll tell Cloud."

It turned out that all the pups had the same dream. Cloud said her moon scar felt tingly. She rubbed it vigorously.

"Let's tell Mum and Dad," said Sport.

They went to the living room. Clyde was chewing a bone, and Anuo and Annala were discussing the importance of Lupe society. The pups told them all about it. The adults acted the same as Fanger, wide-eyed.

"A dream like that comes when a Sorcerer Lupe or Lupess is about learn their powers! We all had it once." Annala motioned to her daughter and son-in-law.

"So, we're going to get our powers?" asked Cloud.

"Supposedly. Do you have any idea what your powers are, besides you, Cloud?" asked Anuo. "Because if you do, that will help you learn them easier."

Eniad recollected her father's lie and how she knew about it, but she didn't say that. She had a feeling to keep it to herself.

***

That same day, the Lupe pups started practising. Cloud tried to get something to appear in mid-air, but was unsuccessful. Sport was waving his arms like an idiot, as though expecting something to happen.

Then Fanger got really mad and stomped about.

"Shoot! I can't get anything to work! I don't even think we HAVE powers!" he pounded the ground in rage.

Another Fanger popped out of him, glided across the room like a ghost, and went back into him. Fanger looked shocked. Gaping, Sport mouthed soundlessly his awe and envy to Fanger.

"Wha... what was that?" he asked when he had found his voice again. "That was… incredible! Apparently you can make another version of yourself at will! Oh my GOSH!"

The girls stared.

"How did you do that?" Eniad asked quietly.

Fanger, still shocked, grinned. "I guess it's just my powers." Still grinning, he danced around, howling, and ran to tell his parents.

"So we have to get mad in order for it to work?" Cloud asked her siblings. "Okay, the. GOSH, I AM SO MAD! I FEEL LIKE WRECKING EVERYTHING! I HATE EVERYTHING! TOO BAD I DON'T HAVE A SLEDGEHAMMER, OR I'D-"

A sledgehammer popped out of nowhere in a flash of red light.

Cloud met Eniad's and Sport's eyes. They were dumbstruck. Cloud fell over in shock.

"Easy, girl," soothed Sport, fanning her with his tail.

"Nice view. Hand me the sledgehammer," muttered Cloud to Sport.

"Oh, no you don't!" Sport danced away from her claws as she slashed at him.

Eniad shook her head at her younger siblings. Ever since her dream, she was feeling a little more grown-up, and her brother and sister were acting just plain silly.

Suddenly Clyde, Anuo, and Annala burst into the room.

"Is it true?" asked Anuo excitedly. "About Fanger?"

"Yes," the other pups chorused. Cloud excitedly showed everyone her sledgehammer she had conjured.

"I'll keep it beside me every second," she said, smiling and hugging her prize.

Eniad felt jealous. Two of her siblings had done magic, and she hadn't done anything. Sport said he was very proud of his brother and sister, and he'd let his magic come when it came.

Man! Eniad thought with anger. Why can't I do anything? I'm the oldest, so I should have gotten my power first, right? Darn it.

She went to sleep that night, still envious. She also ignored the little voice in her head that reminded her of her father's lie. But anyone could've known that... she thought to herself. Right?
