"Camila...." her parents placed their hands on her forehead as they continued, "Im sorry we couldn't stay any longer..." her mom struggled to voice out.
"Take these, as remembrance from me and your father.." she coughed as she used her remaining magic to infuse the two crystals, along with her father.
Her parents coughed for the last time as they turned to dust. Only leaving the dark blue sapphire and pink morganite as remembrance. "Mother? Father?" The young princess shook her parents, no use.
They were gone.
She clutched the two gemstones tightly towards her chest as she cried softly.
~End of her Flashback~
"Olwen dear, would you mind taking our son out for awhile?" Brendan's dad whispered to his mom, it was difficult to make out but thats all the curly haired prince could get. He wondered....Where is Mama taking me?
He looked up at his mom, he was about to question but his mom was already dragging him out. "Come on Brendan, lets go okay?" she smiled at him through the daylight. The prince smiled brightly, his eyes shinning like a light. His mother's look softened, then became sad, without loosing his positivity, he looked at his mom, "Mama? Are you okay?" his mom nodded.
"Im fine dear, but listen." Brendan nodded carefully and slowly, she brought out a beautiful necklace. It was a pure golden chain with a star-carved fire opal embedded in the center. "You must run as far as you can, keep this with you. Keep it around your neck at all times. Got it?" she asked again.
The young prince, confused but trusting nodded with determination. Snatching the necklace from his mother, he gave her one last hug before saying his goodbye.

"Dad? Where's mom?" Stefan said as he waltzed in, adjusting his glasses, "Out." was all his father replied, not even bothering to glance up at the 14 year old prince, "Its late, are you sure she's okay?" the prince asked, glancing at the wall clock.
His father grunted, slamming his newspaper on the coffee table, "YES! Now stop bothering me and go to sleep!" he scolded, but the teen just brushed it off and proceeded to walk into the kitchen for a small snack. But he quickly paused himself due to the faint smell of blood in the kitchen.
He wouldn't... The dark skinned prince grimaced. He made his way to the sink and peered in, indeed. There was a bloody knife there.
"Crap." he muttered, oblivious to the volume he exclaimed it in as his dad yelled back from the living room, "WELL IF YOU'RE GONNA BE SO NOISY MIGHT AS WELL MAKE ME A COFFEE." he stated matter-of-a-factly. Stefan sighed as he began making his father's coffee, but he added a small extra ingredient.
He poured half the bottle into the cup and stirred. He brought the cup back to his father, who slapped him. "Took you long enou—" and he was out like a light. The clock was ticking, Stefan bolted to his room, packed and went to his mom's room as well.
As he was searching, he came across his mom's diary. At first he hesitated, but he flipped through the pages and and a necklace neatly placed within it.
It was beautiful, a long black ribbon holding a small midnight blue Aphrodite shaped like a crescent as a pendant. Under it was a note:
'Dearest son, if you ever find this notebook. Its time, take this necklace and hide.
The prince teared up a bit and grabbed the necklace and fled somewhere safer.
