The sirens blared loudly. Apollo carried Loki’s limp and lifeless body towards the source of the penetrating noise. Apollo was numb, paramedics worked quickly around him, yet their movements were slow and voices quiet. The world was a monochromatic shade of grey. They got into the ambulance and waited for the nightmare to be over. Kat clung to Apollo’s shoulder, crying oceans.
Soon Apollo was inside the hospital, listening to the steady beat of Loki’s heart. The healers had done their job and healed Loki’s physical form but they couldn’t do anything about his current mental state. Apollo gently stroked Loki’s hair as Loki fought off horrible memories of his past. Kat rushed into the bland room, colour drained from her face.
“Your sister …” she stuttered, out of breath,
“Spit it out!” he urged.
“There has been an attempt on her life,” she said. Apollo kissed Loki gently on the forehead and once again headed out into the night.
“I thought you didn’t have any siblings?” said Kat as they flew through the air,
“I don’t. We were close friends when we were younger, but I forgot about her.” he said soberly.
“I don’t understand. Why did your dad choose her for heir?”
“To get back at me.” he said sadly. Soon they reached the calm waters of Elysian and burst into the palace. It was deserted. He heard sobbing in the corner.
“Opal?” he asked tentatively. The small figure turned towards him and her features lit up.
“Apollo!” she cried and raced into his arms. Apollo hugged her to his chest and stroked her hair.
“I was so scared!” she said, still shaking.
“My mum sacrificed herself for me. I have nowhere to go.” she continued. Kat grinned.
“You can come to the Magic Academy and stay there.” Kat said grinning. Apollo mouthed a silent thanks and Kat grinned. Together they flew back to Quartz.
Loki awoke to see the smiling face of Apollo. He groaned in pain but happiness coursed through his veins. They shared a quick kiss and then Kat and Opal entered the room. Suddenly, the world felt great again.
