Krissa and her little brother, Micah, have been pushed around the foster system until they find themselves in the care of "Grandma" Athey. Krissa begins having unusual dreams and her brother knows more than she thinks. Their new friends, Pin, and her twin brother, Khevin, join forces to unravel Krissa's questions. Krissa has become The Chosen One and is drawn into a mission against an evil faction that usurped the throne from Khevin's family. With a group of friends accumulated from school, Krissa learns to control her new found powers and follow her dreams back to the world they all fled from as small children…

"I know," the man said with a sigh. He placed his other hand on the back of
Khevin's head and touched foreheads with his son. Stepping back, he leaned over, gave
Pin a kiss on her nose, and hugged her tightly.

Sealey stepped over to Krissa and handed her one of the heavier bags. "Let me know when you need me to help with it. We have a long way to go, and it can get heavy after a while."

"I can handle it. Thanks," she said and swung the bag to her back.

"I don't doubt that, but I wouldn‘t want you to strain yourself just before we need you to work your magic…literally," he said with a growing smirk. "I wonder whose wrath I would rather deal with…The Prince, or the Chosen One. Something tells me I'd rather deal with his."

Sealey chuckled, enjoying himself. He moved nimbly to avoid Krissa's swinging arm, despite the extra weight he carried, and followed everyone else onto the porch. When Krissa got to the door, he held it open for her.

"I'm afraid I might have to take your wrath, as well, for that one," he whispered to her as she went through the door.
"You might," Krissa said with what she hoped was an evil looking grin.

Daisy Mae waddled through all the legs and Krissa saw a bag strapped to her back. It had a small loop at her collar for Philetus to hold. She smiled at the thought of the small fuzzy creature riding on the round old beagle, and walked to the railing beside Micah.

"You have everything?" Grandma Athey asked Khevin. He nodded and she turned to Daisy Mae. "Well, old girl. You take care of yourself…and my pack of strays.

I‘ll hold down the fort, as usual."

The gray-haired woman bent down and rubbed the dogs head lovingly. She walked over to Micah and Krissa then and held her arms out to them both. Micah hugged her tightly and Krissa hugged over him.

"I will miss you both. You remember to listen to your dreams. Pin will be there to provide clarity and strength to them, so you won't have trouble remembering the important ones," she told them.

Pulling back from the hugs Grandma Athey took Micah‘s face in her wrinkled hands. "You pay close attention to what you see young man. Even if you don't understand it right away, it could still be important." She put a hand on Krissa's arm."Krissa, my dear, you will have some difficult times ahead, but you have the right people around you to help with them."

Tunuftol"s Fortress of Light -

I grew up in Vermont mostly and now live in Virginia with my family (those still at home). My husband and I have a blended family of seven kids. My childhood was spent moving around a lot. (non-military) About five years ago, we started home-schooling our youngest children. Now there are only two remaining in home-school. I have tried to nurture the love of books in our children and now our grandchildren -- always nurturing their imaginations. Recently, I have become active in our community with literacy, starting a local (and online) creative writing club and volunteer tutoring at the Adult Learning Center.

I struggle with Fibromyalgia and PTSD. So, have to be careful not to overdo things... I don't always listen to my own advice. I have a dry, sarcastic and corny sense of humor and always try to look at things optimistically. (again not always successful) However, I feel that if I don't give up -- for long -- then things will work out for the best eventually.
