Fran was flicking through a picture book when Kitryn led the others into their small greeting room.
“You need my help,” She stated and watched Simon close the door.
Kitryn chuckled. “Yes, we need your help. But only if you’re comfortable and aren’t hurt by what we ask you to do. Okay?”
Fran frowned. “But if I not help. More hurt.”
Kitryn kneeled down in front of her. “But, they aren’t you. You are who I care about. You are my family.”
Fran shook her head. “Pete and Nelly family. See-mom mate, family. I help.”
Kitryn looked at Simon who was smiling. “You can’t argue with her logic.”
Kitryn shrugged and motioned O’Connor forward.
“Fran, my name is Brian. My mate Angel had a few ideas that helped them guide their Seer gift. If you are willing I can tell you what they told me and we can see if it will work for you.”
Fran nodded a serious look n her young face. “I try. No promises.”
O’Connor chuckled. “Where did you learn that turn of phrase?”
“From me, sea man. And he learned a lot more too, so you’d better behave and look after her.”
Everyone’s gazes jumped to Meg as she entered the room loaded down with pillows and blankets.
Simon moved faster than Kitryn could follow and had everything piled neatly on the end of the couch Fran was sat on.
Meg sighed. “I am not incapable of carrying some pillows and blankets.” When no one answered she sighed again “They are for Fran. If you’re going to have her using her power, she will most likely pass out after.”
They all helped to get Fran situated comfortably. Hen everyone except O’Connor moved to sit on the other side of the room so as not to be in the way.
O’Connor settled on the floor in front of Fran and smiled.
“Right, we are going to start with some relaxation exercises to make sure you are open to any visions you get.” Once she’d nodded he led her through the basic breathing exercises. In and hold for two counts, out and hold for two counts, and repeat.
After several minutes of this, he spoke quietly. “Now I want you to focus on Cheryl. You’ve seen her in a vision?”
“Good. Picture her and think of your mind like your hands. You’re going to reach out to her and try and see what she’s doing.”
Time stretched out as Fran frowned in concentration and everyone held their collective breaths as they waited to see what would happen.
“I see her.” Fran’s voice was strong and clear. “She has Fae and Mage. They forced to help her. Mage connects. Fae points.”
Kitryn tried to puzzle out what she meant when O’Connor spoke first. “So, Cheryl is forcing a Mage to connect her to other Seers, and a Fae to direct the combined gifts?”
Fran nodded. “We need to help Fae and Mage. Kitty help.”
Kitryn nodded and moved to her side. She was fading fast and would soon be asleep. “Yes, sweetheart, I will try and help the Fae and Mage, we all will.”
That seemed to be what she wanted to hear and she dropped her head to the pillows and passed out.
