He ought to understand. He was a Mist faerie himself, no doubt using his power over water in his job as a plumber. The sun came out from behind a cloud and shone through the window. Laney glanced at the clock. She had fifteen minutes till she had to meet Fletcher and Claudia by the river. Pressing her lips tight, she twisted the tap just enough to let out a thin trickle of water. She would start with something small like making the water spurt sideways for a moment.
Something easy. The water carried on falling in a straight line and Laney felt a bubbling frustration. She could do this. She knew she could. All Mist faeries could make water move. She stared harder. Come on — do it now. Go left. Still nothing happened. Frowning, Laney put her hand under the cold water, letting it spill through her fingers.
The water grew suddenly hot and tumbled faster and faster from the tap. She thought she heard the stairs creak. Steam rose from the falling water and the tap began to judder. Hot water spurted over the worktop and the breakfast bowls, and then right across the window. Laney grabbed for the tap and turned off the flow. Sunlight glittered through the water drops on the window as they made dozens of zigzagging watery paths down the glass. Her T-shirt was splattered with water too. It was the same every time. First nothing would happen and then the water would go wild.
She wiped her forehead, which was damp with spray. The kitchen door opened. There were gold circles around the pupils of his eyes, just like hers. Gold-ringed eyes were the mark of a faerie — a mark that only other faeries could see. He surveyed the room, a serious expression on his face, and then he came in and shut the door behind him. Why is everything wet? Laney blinked, suddenly thinking of faerie folklore. In those days she would have been free to work magic, instead of having to hide her powers and pretend to be human.
She seized a tea towel and started mopping the worktop and the window. Laney shoved the plug into the sink and switched on the tap, squirting in too much washing-up liquid and filling the sink with bubbles. Are you actually listening to me? Think of the consequences of your actions. Laney grabbed a mug and washed it fiercely. She glanced at the clock again.

Ten minutes till she had to meet Fletcher and Claudia. Laney put the mug upside down to dry. My summer holiday. I know it is. Her dad stepped closer. Peter Stingwood told me yesterday that he thought you were spending too much time with Fletcher. Laney thumped another clean mug on to the side. The tribes. It was always the tribes. Three different faerie tribes lived in the village of Skellmore. Stingwood was a Thorn Elder who had never liked her.

The warm water grew hotter beneath her fingers. They were hunting for the Myricals — five faerie objects of great power, each one sacred to a different tribe. But the hunt for the Myricals was a secret and it had to stay that way, because the evil Shadow Faerie was looking for them too…. Mr Rivers exclaimed. Let me learn how to use my skills properly then!

Laney burst out. Her dad sighed. His face stiffened and he folded his arms. You have no idea what the tribes are capable of. Laney washed the last plate and yanked the plug out. It was time to go. Claudia and Fletcher would be waiting. She swung the door open before her dad could say any more and headed down the side alley into the narrow lane.
One side of Oldwing Rise was lined by a quiet row of cottages. A thick wall strewn with ivy ran along the other side and marked the edge of the churchyard. Beyond the wall was the grey stone church of St Dunstan with its pointed steeple soaring into a boundless blue sky. Laney crossed the lane and let herself into the churchyard, taking her usual shortcut round the side of the church.
She knew a rippling light would be playing across the walls of her house behind her, like sunshine dancing on the sea. It was a sign, visible only to other faeries, that Mist faeries lived there. A simmering feeling built up inside her.
Her throat tightened. Most faeries Awakened into their powers when they were quite young, but her Awakening had only been six weeks ago, on her twelfth birthday. In fact, everything she did seemed to convince everyone that she was useless. Maybe he was just trying to save her from disappointment. The only good thing had been finding the Crystal Mirror. It tingled sometimes, especially when her hands felt hot. Clouds covered the sun, casting the churchyard into gloom. Laney followed the path round the corner past tilted gravestones. She could still see traces of the flood here and there — the dark line near the bottom of the church wall where the water had reached.

She sped up, until she heard voices and saw Craig Mottle and Jack Turney — human boys she knew from school. They were coming out of the minimart with plastic bags and sniggering at something.

Laney watched them swagger down the High Street. Craig got a fizzy drink out of his bag and took a long swig before giving a huge belch. Both boys sniggered again. Laney smiled to herself. Laney reached the churchyard gate that led out on to the High Street. He blocked her path, stopping Laney from getting through the gateway. Jack Turney stood behind him, grinning.
Can you move, please? Laney glared at Craig. Of all the boys from school, Craig topped the list of the most annoying. Move, Craig! Like blackness there is spread upon the mountains a great and powerful people; their like has never been before, nor will be again after them through the years of all generations.

Fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns. The land is like the garden of Eden before them, but behind them a desolate wilderness, and nothing escapes them. Their appearance is like the appearance of horses, and like war horses they run. As with the rumbling of chariots, they leap on the tops of the mountains, like the crackling of a flame of fire devouring the stubble, like a powerful army drawn up for battle. Then the moon will be confounded and the sun ashamed, for the Lord of hosts reigns on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and his glory will be before his elders.
Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. When I blot you out, I will cover the heavens and make their stars dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give its light. All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over you, and put darkness on your land, declares the Lord God. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.
The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1, days.
And beware lest you raise your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the host of heaven, you be drawn away and bow down to them and serve them, things that the Lord your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven. And I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke;. And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering.

And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator. Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. Know therefore and understand that from the going out of the word to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of an anointed one, a prince, there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built again with squares and moat, but in a troubled time.
And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth. And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars.
And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands.
They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. Let the one who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house, and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak. And alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne.
The sun shall be no more your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give you light; but the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun shall no more go down, nor your moon withdraw itself; for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of mourning shall be ended.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Behold, the day of the Lord comes, cruel, with wrath and fierce anger, to make the land a desolation and to destroy its sinners from it. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. Like the moon it shall be established forever, a faithful witness in the skies. Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming; it is near,.
Before the decree takes effect —before the day passes away like chaff— before there comes upon you the burning anger of the Lord , before there comes upon you the day of the anger of the Lord. Seek the Lord , all you humble of the land, who do his just commands; seek righteousness; seek humility; perhaps you may be hidden on the day of the anger of the Lord.
And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1, days, clothed in sackcloth. And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. All the host of heaven shall rot away, and the skies roll up like a scroll.
All their host shall fall, as leaves fall from the vine, like leaves falling from the fig tree. When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,. And I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great host, all of them with buckler and shield, wielding swords. Persia, Cush, and Put are with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Of David.
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When evildoers assail me to eat up my flesh, my adversaries and foes, it is they who stumble and fall. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident. One thing have I asked of the Lord , that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock.
Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour. There will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down. He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
