Declan as he turned to face her.
    'It's woken up,' she replied with a gulp.
     
     

    CHAPTER 9
    'Oi, get me outta, outta here here. You can't keep me locked in a cage cage. I'm not some kind of animal animal. I'm a troll troll, I'm a pixie pixie troll. We have rights right, you know know. Get me outta here, get me out, out!' screeched the creature from the back of the car as it shook the bars of the cage.
    'Shut up,' Lana shouted back at it. 'Just shut up, you horrible little thing. Why should we let you out? So you can freeze us all too? You're an evil little sh—'
    'Lana, that's enough,' yelled Emma over the top of her voice.
    Lana instantly quietened down, sulking.
    'Sammy, this is my sister, Lana,' she said with a smile as Sammy sat, terrified, occasionally stealing a glance at the ugly creature in the back of the car.
    'Hi, Sammy. Sorry about that,' she said, reaching across to shake her hand. Sammy shook it and then put her hands back underneath her legs.
    'Wh...wh...what is that?' she gulped.
    'That's a pixie troll and it's because of him and his kind that the world seems to have stopped, evil little...'
    'Lana, stop it,' Emma said, shaking her head.
    'Well it is!'
    'I know, but Sammy doesn't understand any of this. So before you keep going on and on about him, we need to explain what's happening.'
    'Oh yeah, right. Sorry,' she said. 'Did you get your tattoo this morning?'
    Sammy nodded.
    'Did you discover any special power yet?'
    Sammy shrugged and looked down shyly.
    'You've probably just not had the chance to find out what it is, with all this happening this morning,' Declan said as they drove away from Salisbury towards Winchester.
    'Erm... what's wrong with her?' Sammy asked as she looked at Moira, who not only seemed to be in a rather deep sleep but was also very pale.
    'She was bitten, we're taking her to hospital,' Elliott said, turning to look at her from the front seat.
    'Hospital? But what good will that do? Everyone's frozen.'
    Lana and Emma smiled. 'It's not just any old hospital we're taking her to. It's a special hospital for the Watchers,' Emma replied.
    'The Watchers?'
    'You're a Watcher, Sammy. That's what we are. We're half... erm... half...' Emma suddenly wondered whether she should be the one to tell her the truth.
    'It's okay, Emma. She needs to know. Normally Eleanor would tell her, but I think under the circumstances, it's okay for you to go ahead and do the honours,' Declan interrupted.
    Smiling, Emma continued, 'Sammy, we're special because one of our parents was special. We're all half angels,' she said.
    Sammy raised her eyebrows.
    'Seriously, we're half angels. You too, that's what your tattoo means.'
    'Och, half angels, half angels angels. Who do you think you are, you are? I'm special, and you're special special, we're all special special. Get over yourselves selves,' muttered the troll angrily.
    'Oh shut up,' yelled everyone at the same time.
    'You're telling me that either my mum or my dad is an angel?'
    'That's right,' said Elliott.
    'Where are your parents?' Emma asked.
    'My mum died when I was a baby and my dad, well, he runs a bakery in Salisbury, with my step mum.'
    'So it is likely your mum was the angel,' Lana said with a sad smile.
    Sammy's eyes glazed over, 'Does that mean she's not... not... not really dead?' she asked.
    Declan looked at her through the mirror, 'It's a possibility,' he said. 'But that doesn't mean that you can see her. Most angels aren't allowed to return. But we can look into it when all of this is sorted out.'
    'You can?' she asked, her face glowing.
    'We will, I promise,' he said with a wink before he returned his full attention to the road.
    'So what happened to you this morning, Sammy?' asked Lana.
    'I was just working at the bakery with Dad when suddenly everything stopped,' she said, putting her head in her hands and sobbing. 'I don't know what happened, nobody was moving. I thought they were dead, but how can you die standing up like that? I was so
