Chapter 1

Miranda stood at the foot of the bed watching the tiny child wither in agony. She cringed at the sight of the child's sweat soaked body, and the silky brown ringlets of hair stuck to her face and neck.

She was the most beautiful child Miranda had ever seen. The child's large brown eyes, which Miranda had only seen a few times, sparkled with flecks of gold and silver.

Miranda mainly came at night to help the small child through the torment of the nightmares. Nightmares filled with blood, and demons with pointed teeth.

In these dreams the child would find herself watching from above as the demons fought each other to the death. Every time a demon's tooth struck an innocent blood would spray hot and sticky over the child. It would congeal to her soft pale skin, and before she could scrape it off more would be splashed on her.

Try as she might the child could never awaken from the dream until it played out.

Miranda wished she could do more for the child, but she was not allowed to touch her yet. Her fingers ached to hold the child close and to calm her fears.

The Directive was precisely written to protect The Family, and it was her job to follow it. This child if proven to be "The One" would be very important to The Family. She would allow them to continue on in this world without detection. It would allow them to continue to live in peace, and not suffer the perils of the nightmares.

Miranda began to sing the lullaby she first introduced to the child immediately after she was born.

That had been the first test.


The child came into the world screaming at the top of her lungs as Miranda stood watching the miracle she had been searching for and flower petals appeared in Miranda's eyes.

The humans who had assisted with the birth tried to calm the child to no avail. They soon became concerned that something was wrong with the infant so Miranda began to sing. The infant immediately calmed, and searched out for her Mother's breast to nurse. Miranda had never seen a more beautiful sight as the infant's hand caressed her Mothers breast, and her Father leaned in to kiss her on the top of her head.

Miranda felt so drawn to this human it scared her. At one point the infant opened her eyes, and connected with Miranda's. The infant smiled and the overwhelming warmth, love, and protection that came from her entered Miranda's body, and spread throughout her core. Miranda's body trembled as she ached to touch, and hold the tiny human.


It had been Miranda's job from the first she day she came to this world hundreds of years ago to find the one who would protect The Family. She had searched every continent while her earthly body slept. Miranda sighed, what little time that managed to be. She did not know of any human needing so little sleep. In fact the earthly body she had chosen seemed to thrive on hard work, and hot coffee.

Miranda did not mind this at all as Fairies needed very little rest to rejuvenate, and the earthly drink called coffee was intoxicating.

Her profound sense of smell made her the perfect entity for this responsibility, and she knew she had finally found the child from that very first real fragrant whiff of Freesia she encountered four years ago.

So she followed the perfume as she floated through the sky, and landed herself into a room watching as two humans made love. Their moments were slow, and sensual. Kisses were long, and from what Miranda could feel breath taking. They touched, and caressed each other for so long Miranda was concerned the event would not take place, and she would once again have to go in search of "The One".

The couple experienced orgasm at the same time. Miranda felt the electricity strike through the air, and the smell of Freesia was so intense Miranda felt as if she too would experience her own exploding orgasm. She knew at that instant "The One" had been conceived.

She only wished her experiences at love making would equal this. The human body she had embodied had only taken two lovers her entire time here. The present one although better than the first, and a permeant fixture he still could not bring the scent of Freesias to her during their love making.

Freesias were the embodiment of life to her kind. Love, birth, and yes even death produced the amazing perfume. In her human form she was constantly surround by flowers, and so one of the first Golden Rules at Runway commanded no Freesia's around Miranda. With the flowers around Miranda could not concentrate. The smell would make her blood boil, and she would need to get away to relieve the sexual tension her body so craved. With the scent around Miranda could not function as the Dragon Lady or Ice Queen as she had become to be known.

The rest of the nine months it took to produce a human infant it was Miranda's job to make sure the female human carrying the child was not harmed in any way. Although there were a few close calls thanks to Miranda the female human was never injured.


Anna as she was called had been riding in a car (the objects that humans use to take them from place to place). Her Husband was with her and the side of the car Anna was seated in was hit by another car going at a very fast speed, but luckily Anna had been unscathed. As Richard (Anna's Husband) got out of the car to inspect the damage he was amazed. Scratching his head he walked in circles around the car unable to find a single dent or scratch. Now Richard knew they had been hit, the car had been pushed way over into the far lane on the other side of the divide. As the occupant of the other car jumped out, ran over to them voicing his concern for what had happened, and worried about the injuries the others may have incurred, Richard just shook his head.

Unbeknownst to them Miranda had positioned herself between the two vehicles cushioning the blow to Anna, and the car. Both males were amazed, and perplexed. "That is some car you have mister. I would never get rid of it." Richard had glared at the man reminding him that he had put the life of his Wife, and unborn child in danger, but did not press the issue since no one somehow had been injured.

The second incident happened right before Anna was to give birth, and she had stupidly climb on a ladder to reach a dish high in one of her cupboards losing her balance. She had screamed as she felt herself falling, but luckily for the couple Richard had just walked into the kitchen, and saw her start to topple. Running over to her he managed to catch her as she tumbled from her perch.

Richard had been sitting in the living room reading a book when he had gotten the urge to get a drink. Had this not happened Anna would have tumbled to the floor with dire consequences to her, and the unborn child. Miranda had been watching Anna in the kitchen that day, and everything within her core told her Anna on the ladder would result in a life-threatening event, and instilled in Richard's mind the immediate need for a drink of water.


That day in the delivery room Miranda, and the infant locked eyes as the child started to calm. They were the largest and deepest brown pools Miranda had ever seen. The infant's skin glowed, and sparks were emitted from its body. Miranda's body became warm as she reacted to the sights and smells she experienced.

The infant although too young to realize it felt warmth, love, and protection from the sparkling crystal blues eyes she was mesmerized by.

As Miranda watched the child nurse, feelings came to her maternal instinct. Most her age already had their own children, but the lovers her human body had taken produced none for her. So she was content to now care for, and nature this child in hopes she would protect The Family, and their entire being.


Miranda jerked as the now three year old child sat straight up in bed eyes wide open, and screaming at the top of her lungs.

Miranda had realized she had stopped singing as her mind took a stroll down memory lane, and the child instead of being eased out of her nightmare had awoken with the strong vivid images still fresh in her mind.

Miranda was horrified at what she had let the child experience.

Just then the child's Father came running into the room, right through Miranda, and scooped up the shaking child in his arms.

Miranda acutely aware of the implications immediately began to sing once again.

The small girl wrapped her chubby arms and legs around the towering man and quieted instantly.

As her Father rocked her in his arms she looked upon the beautiful blue woman standing at the foot of her bed, and was reassured. The feeling of love, warmth, and protection wound its way through her tiny body.

This was not the first time she had seen this woman, and she knew it would not be the last.

She first saw her the day she was born standing behind the doctor. She was petite, dressed in a flowing blue gown, her eyes a deep sapphire blue with specks of white crystals in them. Her hair was silver, and softly laid against her forehead. The woman had the most intoxicating smell to her, and every time the small girl smelled it she knew the beautiful woman would be near.

Andy locked eyes with the woman as she continued to sing reassuring Andy that everything would be alright, and not to fret about her dream. Andy's big bright smile spread across her face, and Miranda smiled back, "I will always be here for you child, never forget. Soon the bad dreams will disappear, and you will only have happy ones." Then Miranda disappeared.
