Rilynn's Search

"What's your hurry Cameron? I'm sure whoever has her is hunkered down hiding until most of the heat dies down and they think we have stopped looking for her." Rilynn was certain of herself and Cameron wasn't sure why that bugged him. All he knew was she was going to be a problem with her arrogance. Snapping him back to reality with her hands in his face. "Hello, like I was saying what's your hurry? She isn't going anywhere." Rilynn needed Cameron’s help worse than Kinessa did, her father was missing and all she had to go off of was a rumor that he was working for a Warlock from the East woods. Cameron knew she had a hidden agenda in mind and he was dead set against doing anything other than finding Kinessa and William.

"My hurry is because every minute we stand here with our thumbs stuck up our asses, Kinessa and William get farther away and the more danger she could be in. Therefore whatever plans you have in mind i out of the question." He grabbed his duffel bag and walked to the door. Rilynn took a deep breath, she was far from a pushover and was determined to find her father and Cameron will be at her side to help. She had been on the search for him since early spring when he and four others went on a weekend fishing and hunting trip, but when only two returned; barely walking and the other two in body bags, and her father missing, she pulled all her resources together along with everything her father taught her about tracking, surviving in the wild and following her instincts.

Rilynn gathered her gear and followed Cameron out the front door. After throwing everything into the back of her old CJ7 Jeep, she debated on making one last attempt to convince Cameron she needed his help. He was already in the jeep waiting for Rilynn with his mind set on finding Kinessa Suntree. Rilynn knew she would have to do all the convincing the hard way. She had already heard that Kinessa was in the best care that she could be in. Cameron was only hunting for her to save his pride because his baby brother was her true soul mate.

She drove them into a clearing at the south end of the forest where Cameron had found William's cave. "We should head back west, looks to be a lot of activity this way." Rilynn could tell they went east but her father was off to the west. Cameron followed his gut and questioned. "How can you be so sure it was them and not a bunch of wild boars passing through?" Rilynn was about to get pissed off. "Why won't you just listen to me, obviously there was a struggle here and she was dragged this way." Cameron thought about Kinessa being dragged and putting up a fight against William. That wouldn't be much of a fight or struggle, something wasn't adding up, but he knew she wouldn't give in easily and would fight with everything she had in her.

A whisper of wind caught Rilynn's attention; she watched it pick up and stir the leaves around. She was always taught to take this as a sign of something coming, whether it was good or bad would depend on what the leaves done now. She watched carefully and braced herself for the worst. The leaves began to lift off the ground and circle around her like a small tornado. She could hear whispers "Do not follow me into the dark. Protect the light." She had no clue what that meant. Cameron was frozen, he had never seen anything like it. Her long black hair wrapped around her face like a cocoon and when it fell it was like it was releasing a beautiful butterfly. Did he really just think that in his own brain? He shook his head hard. "How could I think that she is arrogant, stubborn, and I bet she could be a real BEEP!!" Cameron placed all the cons out there in front of him while tracing a capital "B" in the air.

Rilynn had only spoke to the spirit world once before; she was a child maybe ten years of age, she thought she was dreaming when she seen her mother just disappear into thin air. She wasn't ready to see another disappearing act now. "We need to go now!" Rilynn demanded of Cameron. He seen a flash of fear cross her face and he figured he would ask questions later. They started to move toward the west Cameron wasn't much of a boy scout he knew enough to help him survive but he never liked the camping experience. He dealt better in the city life when it came to be a watcher; he knew how to deal with people and crowds, not nature and all its glory. Did that make him a snob or even girlie? Cameron started letting his mind wander over these insecurities and he questioned just how manly he was or even if he really could protect Kinessa for what was coming after her.

"Dude, you still with me?" Rilynn had been trying to get Cameron to pay attention to what she was saying about watching where he walked but he was so involved in his own little world that he hadn't been listening when he found himself snagged in a hunter's net. "What the hell just happened?" Cameron started yelling. "Shhhh you idiot you wanna get us both killed. Just give me a minute and I will get you down." Rilynn checked the scenery out she knew there was always more than one trap. She managed to bypass them all but now the fun part was scaling the hundred year old oak that stood between her and Cameron swinging in a hunter's net; which of all things was truly not on her To Do List today.

After she managed to scale the old oak and cut Cameron loose, Rilynn decided to take the view in from the higher perspective. She could see what appeared to be an abandoned barn not far from them maybe a mile or so. She thought it would be a safe place to bunk down for the night.

Cameron was quiet most of the way trying to prepare himself for all the ridicule and criticism that Rilynn had waiting for him. Not only was he doubting his manhood now, he was even starting to doubt his skills as a watcher. What he didn't know was he wasn't the only one trying to fight off the demons.

They both knew eventually they would have to come clean about their insecurities, especially Rilynn if she was going to earn Cameron's trust to help her find her father. She has battled the past ten years with trying to understand what happened to her mother with no answers or support from her family and friends. They just continue to tell her that there is no hope of finding her and she is just wasting her time. Would it turn out to be the same with her father?
