There was a chill in the air that crawled up and down Katriana's spine. She had been walking through the maze in the garden of Henry's estate as she often did when Sabrina would tell her to take some time for herself. This was one of those nights.
The moon was full and seemed so close to the earth, so close that Katriana outstretched her hand to touch it and smiled at the knowledge of her silliness. It reminded her of the time when she was younger and her mother and her would sit outside on the full moon nights and just dream out loud and make wishes on the brightest star. Giggling while she listened to her mother tell her silly stories of the spiders on the moon. Now she would do anything to have those moments back.
To think it was a year ago when she was just a 19 year old girl working in a restaurant trying to make ends meet with the memories of her family haunting her every thought. And now, she was immortal, a product of Sabrina's venom. Although she had great strength and beauty, she still felt an emptiness at times. Junior had gone to the U.S. as instructed by Henry and so Katriana was lonely in the evenings, yearning for his touch, his company and because of this she was left with her memories to haunt her once more.
In the daytime Sabrina would fill Katriana's time with combat, language and culture training. Having her ape the way Sabrina walked, talked and behaved. She was becoming more and more like Sabrina and at times she would look in the mirror to see if she could still find herself. And when she did a crooked smile would reflect back.
She was very aware that time was closing in on her training. Sabrina was planning on letting Katriana make a public appearance by Ishmael's side. She knew the only way Sabrina would allow that is if she was fully confidant that Katriana was able to pull off being her. Ishmael would have zero tolerance, so less than perfect was not an option. She had one final task and that was to be able to kill as Sabrina could, without remorse.
Katriana looked up once again into the night sky and picked the brightest star to make a wish....
