It's a dark and stormy night, lightning strikes through the sky. Klymene is walking through the dark, damp forest with Alexander slumped over her shoulder. A flash of lighting reveals her face, she looks injured. Tears are seen trembling down her cheeks, she looks broken inside... Angry yet sad.
"I will save you Alex, I promise" Klymene whispers to herself as thunder is heard in the background.
The screen fades to black
"You! You did this to me! You left me!" Kilina screams at her!
"I need help! I'm in so much pain" Kilina screams, grabbing her head in pain. Millicent stumbles backwards and falls to the ground.
"N.. No.. I want to help you please" Millicent begs. Kilina shoots a nasty stare at her
"Too late" she whispers. Kilina jumps up from the ground and launches towards Millicent and attempts to strike her. The screen goes black.

Millicent wakes up screaming and sweating, she breathes heavily and looks around her room. Kisandra comes running in.
"Millicent are you okay?" Kisandra asks panicked.
"I.. I'm fine.. It was another nightmare.. It.. It felt so real, like a vision. My Mother tried to kill me... Kisandra, my Mother is alive I just know it!" Kisandra walks over to Millicent's bed and sits down, she strokes Millicent's hair.
"Millicent.. I know it's hard to accept but Kilina... is dead. We need to accept that... You need to accept that" Millicent looks away.
"I never will! I know she's alive and I will do anything it takes to save her!" she says determinedly. Kisandra's eyes sadden, she stands up and begins to walk away.
"We'll find her Millicent, but you have to prepare yourself for the fact that she may be..." Millicent interrupts her
"She's not! I know it!". Kisandra walks out.
Kisandra leans against's Millicent's closed door.
"Oh sis.. Where are you?" she says to herself. She looks down towards the floor and hears a panicked knock on the door. Looking confused Kisandra cautiously makes her way towards the door and grabs her sword, lightning fills up the dark hallway. The knock on the door gets more frantic, Kisandra walks over and stretches out her hand to open it. Suddenly it bursts open and Klymene falls through with Alexander on her back. The pair crash hardly on the floor.
"Klymene?!" Kisandra exclaims. Klymene rolls over and is covered in blood.
"Klymene what happened to you?!" Kisandra exclaims and kneels besides her, Millicent comes out of her room.
