A voice roused him from sleep. Casey opened his eyes to the soft, warm light filtering in through the treehouse window. Strange, he thought, remembering snippets of a dream; the Keepers taking him in the middle of the night, being in the cold, white laboratory rooms, a glass chamber, being afraid. Casey dismissed the thoughts as just his occasional nightmares about the labs, but it was the clearest dream that he'd had in a long while.
"It's the middle of the day and still you are sleeping."
Casey rolled over in his bed, which felt oddly cold and hard this morning, to see Sascha already up and dressed for the day. He loomed over him expectantly as Casey rubbed at his sleepy eyes. "Someone's chipper this morning," he mumbled, finally sitting up. Normally it was Casey who was awake first and Sascha who lingered in bed, struggling against his nocturnal nature.
Sascha smiled and laughed, a warm, musical sound that never failed to make Casey smile. "Of course I am happy! Ecaterina is finally here!" He stepped aside to reveal a woman in the treehouse, waiting behind him. Casey was stunned by her appearance; she towered over him, probably as tall as Sascha was. Her hair was long and silky-looking and glowed a warm honey color in the sunlight. Her modelesque form was complemented by her gentle yet beautiful face; she was straight out of a painting from a bygone era and it made Casey's heart drop in his chest.
"E-Ecaterina? But I thought she was dead! You said.." Casey was cut off as Sascha swept the beautiful woman into his arms and spun around, the image of a couple on a movie poster. Ecaterina laughed, the pixie-like jingle echoing off of the walls and making Casey cringe.
"No, silly! She is alive and she's finally here!" Ecaterina smiled and stroked Sascha's cheek as he finally set her down. "I have longed for this day for so long," She whispered. Casey's brows furrowed in confusion. Was he missing something here? Was he invisible, or was she just moving in on his man?
His question was answered promptly enough as Sascha leaned in and kissed her. Ecaterina grinned into the kiss and for a moment, she glanced at Casey with a wicked gleam in her eyes. Casey's jaw dropped and he felt himself lost for words; it sorta felt like he'd been sucker-punched in the gut.
What the hell was going on here?
