7章: 奔向沼澤地

 

回來摩根聽到一個聲音在個聲音堅定,穩鍵帶著的嚴肅和權威的口吻。瑪麗。自從他學會了說話甚止在這之前通過思想和潛意識相互通交流。

 

瑪麗把米娜帶回床上掖好被子,摩根已披上外套悄悄溜出門口。已經走到下一個街口,以為瑪麗會迎趕上。

 

!摩根反駁著瑪麗道時間不多了!我否則為時!摩根突然感到來自她的孿生姐妹的一陣莫大的無奈和挫折。不到半分瑪麗。隨著她的到淡淡的從地面升起,瀰漫在街好主意!摩根暗道,隨後街燈便漸漸暗而熄滅,人們從窗戶將無法看到她們在幽暗中的個黑影。摩根雙手合掌,輕輕一揉,手打一個色的光球從的手掌升起,照亮在他面前的道路。她化了多年時間來掌握一招術經過多少個夜晚的溜出去幽會男孩或行其他的她已是一個能隨心變出只有讓的同伴可以看到燈光的家。

 

動了!瑪麗一邊呼吸一邊道:沒有,我甚至不知道拉在哪裡!」

 

如果我拉的方向感就好了!」摩根說。

 

瑪麗轉動著的眼睛:真的摩根,我不能這樣冒然而進。我不能任何人知道是我們干否則知道在里可以找到這將會帶來更大的麻。」

 

我想我先到中心再想法子摩根

 

等一等瑪麗一把抓住摩根的肘拉到人行道邊。變得更加濃密。有人來了。在她身後可以隱隱聽到一個雙腳快速移的節拍。摩根把她的魔光往腳聲的方向照過去。一個矮矮的小女孩的身影被照亮了。瑪麗稀釋了濃

 

 

我想我能幫忙,」她們的小妹妹快步來,說:我不能留在家裡而你們--」瑪麗臉色青。我不相信你能幫忙在必須回去!」道不明白我們現在不但要想辦法如何營救們還要擔心來保沒聽媽媽說嗎不管是什么--」

 

但我知道米娜滿臉發光,一片懇請的模樣。向摩根。

 

摩根了口氣。那好。來。我不能再浪費時間。在黎明之前我只有幾個小時。」

 

瑪麗了一下摩根,一把抓起米娜的手。好吧,知道些什米娜

 

離開婚禮后我聽到有些人在。他們說要到沼澤地邊戒備森嚴的監獄」。

 

池塘旁邊哪座奇怪的建築嗎我知道其切位置」摩根幹得好米娜。

 

瑪麗邊走邊看了看周們這樣嘰嘰喳喳會吵醒全鎮的人即使她如是瑪麗有一奇妙的感——沒有人能聽到她們--就象媽媽在家裡營造的那種消音效果。現在不在家裡的房子。即使在某程度上從家裡房子帶來了消音的能力還是小心為妙。

 

米娜拉著瑪麗的手落在摩根幾步之遙而摩根一路往沼澤地方向奔去。摩根一直是姐妹中最冒也是最敢於用她的法力。當發現自己具有這些法力時,甚至在能完全掌控它們之前她會淋漓盡致地把它們發揮到極致去做一些頑皮少女會做的事情。像這樣的夜沒有什大不了的。然而一夜的血液行著一莫名的。第一次她感到她的使命是正的。仿佛以前的調皮搗蛋的惡作劇是為今天積累經驗鍛煉真正需要時為善而行使的魔力。

 

世上可能沒有比摩根和瑪麗更不同的孿生姐妹。摩根並不需要親的教誨 ——然法媽常如此做——她頭腦里總是聽到瑪麗的警告聲音字字清晰不要讓魔力迷幻瑪麗知道摩根在半夜出去, 她會提醒不要做任何愚蠢的事要小心。而瑪麗在學校功課很好並遵守紀律。 求刺激而是留在家裡尋規韜矩地練習的法術就像其他孩子練鋼琴一樣。所以一個表演家。利用算力頭腦是可以想辦法行施她的魔法,而讓它如發生一件意外事件或可輕易用自然象解

 

走在路上,瑪麗在考慮不同的略。不像摩根從來沒有去過那片澤地所以不知道她會遇到什麼限制。只有到了那兒才會看到各種狀況得胸部砰砰的跳動, 她知道那是恐懼。試圖想象是什麼東西害了格雷厄姆,以及 如果碰到它,將如何戰勝它。但是雖然她好奇和她也從來沒有想到會有與家人同類的東西存在。終認為是獨一無二的在這世界上的其他人只是普通正常人。對自己的人一無所知它有多么強它的魔法和動機是什麼。這種一無所知的狀態把她嚇壞了。捏緊米娜的手深吸了一口氣。

 

Chapter 7 – To the Swamp

 

Come back! Morgan heard a voice in her head say. It was firm and steady, with hints of her mother』s severity. It was Marie. Since they had learned to talk, or perhaps even before, they had been able to communicate to each other merely by thinking and directing their thoughts to each other.

While Marie had tucked Mina back into bed, Morgan had put on her coat and slipped quietly out the door. She was now at the end of the block. She assumed Marie would catch up.

No, Morgan shot back to Marie. We』re running out of time. We have to go or it』ll be too late. Morgan felt a pang of relenting frustration that she knew belonged to her twin.

Less than half a minute later, Marie appeared at her side. As she came, a light fog rose from the ground and spread across the street. Good idea, Morgan said, and then the streetlights dimmed and went out. Anybody looking out of their windows would not be able to see the two figures in the thick darkness. Morgan rubbed her hands together and when she opened them, a reddish light rose from her palms to light the path in front of them. It had taken her years to master this trick, but after many nights of sneaking out to meet boys or carry out other mischief, she was an expert at creating this light that only she and her companions could see.

「This is so impulsive,」 Marie said under her breath. 「We don』t have a plan. We don』t even know where Mara is.」

「If only we had Mara』s sense of direction,」 Morgan said.

Marie rolled her eyes. 「Seriously, Morgan. We』re not going to just be able to barge in. We can』t let anyone know it was us, or they』ll know where to find her and we』ll all be in bigger trouble than we already are.」

「I figured we would just go toward the center of town and figure it out from there,」 Morgan said.

Wait. Marie put a hand on Morgan』s elbow and pulled her off the sidewalk. The fog became denser. Someone』s coming. A faint patter of quick-moving feet could be heard coming from behind them. Morgan extended her light in the direction of the footsteps. It illuminated the short, small figure of a little girl. Marie lightened the fog.

Mina!」

「I think I can help,」 their little sister said as she came running up. 「Please? I can』t just stay at home while—」

Marie was livid. 「I can』t believe this. You need to go back right now,」 she said. 「Don』t you understand? On top of figuring out how to save Mara we』re going to have to worry about protecting you. Didn』t you hear Mom? Whatever is out there—」

「But I know where she is!」 Mina』s face was bright and pleading. She turned towards Morgan.

Morgan sighed. 「Okay. Come on. We can』t waste any more time. We』ve only got a few hours before dawn.」

Marie glared at Morgan and grabbed Mina』s hand. 「Fine. What do you know, Mina?」

「I heard some people talking before we left the party. They were saying that they took her to the high-security holding cell by the swamp.」

「Is that what that weird building next to the pond is? I know exactly where that is,」 Morgan said. 「Good work, Mina.」

Marie looked carefully around as they walked. 「Now shush,」 she said, 「We』re going to wake up the whole town with our chattering.」 Even as she said it, however, Marie felt a strange sensation that no one could hear them—a feeling similar to the muffling effect that their mother created over the house. She didn』t dwell on it. Even if they somehow carried the silencing power from the house, they could never be too careful.

Mina hung onto Marie』s hand, a couple of feet behind Morgan, who was leading the way to the swamp. Morgan had always been the most adventurous of the sisters, and the most daring with her powers too. When she discovered them and even before she had fine-tuned them, she used them to their full potential to do the things that teenage girls would do. Night excursions such as this one were no big deal to her. This night, however, she felt her blood run with a strange excitement. For the first time, she had a mission—and a righteous one at that, she thought. She felt as if her fun escapades had been building up to this, preparing her for when she really needed to use her powers for good.

There could not have been twin sisters more different than Morgan and Marie. Morgan didn』t need her mother to lecture her—though Fa frequently did anyways—because she always had Marie』s warning voice (literally) in her head. Don』t get power-trippy, Marie would remind her when she knew Morgan was out in the middle of the night. Don』t do anything stupid. Be careful. Marie was the twin who did well in school and succeeded by following the rules. Instead of running out to seek thrills, she stayed in the house and practiced her powers in a regimented, ordered fashion, much like other children would practice the piano. And so, she became a virtuoso. Combined with her calculating, sharp mind, she always managed to use her powers in a way that would make them seem accidental or easily explained by natural phenomena.

As they walked, Marie considered different plans and strategies. Unlike Morgan, she had never wandered over to the swamp and so she had no idea what her constraints would be. She would have to see when they arrived. She felt a thumping in her chest that she recognized as fear. She tried to imagine what the thing that had killed Graham could be, and how they would subvert it if it came to it. But, inquiring and smart as she was, she had never considered that there could be something similar to her family out there. She always assumed that they were alone, and that everyone else in the world was just plain normal. She knew nothing about their enemy: how strong it was, its powers, its intentions. This utter lack of knowledge terrified her. She squeezed Mina』s hand and took a deep breath.
