|Yesterday was just crazy, I was excited to find out that there are going to be others just like me and Wolf, but now… I’m just not sure. “Hey everybody!” I say as I walk through my family’s house. I’ve been gone for a while now since I live in the dorms and Dylan’s really close to me, so he’s going to be so excited to see that I’m going to spend the night! “Where is everybody?” I wonder, omigosh! The living room is in shreds! Everything is silent, what happened?!?!? I run in the kitchen to find it too, in ruins! But I see mom and dad facing away from me and clearly laughing about something. That’s when I see little Dilly grinning ear-from-ear, what does ‘grinning ear-from-ear’ mean anyways? “WHAT HAPPENED IN HERE?!?!?!?” I gush out.
“Huh? Oh, hey there Big Sis!!” Dylan waves.
“What. Is. That?” I say slowly, in front of Dylan is a humongous red scorpion. He was even petting the little creature!!
“Oh sweetheart you’re home!” mom smiles warmly.
“We’ve missed you so very much!” dad says not to be undone.
“Stop stalling, what is that?!” I point angrily at that thing.
“I’ve made my first spell Sis!! My very first! And a strong one too! Merle Ambrose said so!” Dylan said proudly.
“M-Merle Ambrose came here?! For what reason?!?!”
“Oh honey, I knew you wouldn’t understand…” dad says quietly.
“Understand?! Understand what?!?!” anxiety is biting at me from the minute!
“It is time for Dylan to be a wizard!” mom says happily, “Merle came here not too long ago and pronounced our little Dilly to be a Balance wizard!!! Eeeeeeee!!!! Aren’t you just so happy!!” mom grins.
“B-but, he’s only t-ten!” I protest, hey, you would too if you had to wait 2 years later to become a wizard!
“Yes, yes, we know sweetie, but Dylan seems to be a bit… hmmm, advanced.” Dad finally says.
I groan quietly, this is all too much; I slump down on a chair, only to find it to collapse under me. Apparently one of the legs got torn off by that little bug-thing. I fall down to the floor.*THUD* “Ack!” I squeak. Instead of getting back up, I just cross my legs sitting on the floor and turn to Dylan so he can go on. “Buuuuutt……” he starts, “Check out what I found at the park!” he says proudly holding up a brownish-chocolate colored sphere. “Looks kinda familiar…” I start to say slowly. Wait a minute! I’ve got a sphere too! And so does Wolf! He’s a Wielder too! My little brother! Who shall hold wisdom? But he’s only 10 years old!!! Great. Now I have to drag him along too on my little journey. I was hoping to keep my family out of this, to stay safe. But hey, what can I do about it?
“Hey uh, Dilly?” I try to say as sweetly as possible, I’m feeling a little bitter right now. “Want to meet my, uh, friend tomorrow?”
“Really! Can I go to a dorm too? Promise I won’t practice spells in the room!”
I turn to mom and dad, they both nod their heads, “Sure thing Dilly.” I say smiling.
Dylan and I are waiting together by Bartleby; we’ve been waiting for 18 minutes now. “When is he coming? I’m booorred.” Dylan complained. “Soon Dilly, soon.” I say.
Wolf WAS supposed to be here by 10 o’clock sharp! “Oh hey! Look! Here he comes! Come on lets go!” I say starting to run towards Wolf, Dylan hot on my heels. That’s when I noticed that there was some girl next to him, they were both running too. “Uh-Oh!” I shout, a huge black hole opens in between Wolf and I. “Ack!! NOT AGAAAAIIINNN!!!” he shouts as he falls in. “YIIIIEEEEAAAAHHHHH!!!” the other girl shrieks as she stumbles in too. Me and Dylan stop just in front of it. “What just happened?!?!” he screams.
“You probably won’t like me for this but…” I grab his arms.
“Wait! What are you DOOOOIIIINGGG!!!!!” he shrieks as I jump in the hole, pulling him down with me.
“YOOOUU WEERRREE RIIIGGHHTT!!!!” he says as we fall deeper and deeper in the hole.
“AAABBOUT WHHATTT???” I shout back.
“IIIII DDDOOO HHHAAATTTEEEE YYOOOUUU NOOOWWWW!!!! WHYYYYY JJJYYYOOOUUU DOOO THHATTT FFFFOOOOORRRR????” he screams at me.
“JJUSTT HOOLDD ONN TTIIGHHT” I shout back at him.
Then we stop. Wolf and Mystery Girl are floating in mid air; we’re right next to them. “Like, what the heck is, like, going on?” the girl shrieks. Me and Wolf both knew what would happen next, so we prepared ourselves. We all falled at once Wolf and I landed on our feet, since we knew it was coming. But Dylan and the girl fell ungraciously. “Yooooowwwww!!!” Dylan complained, “That, like, totally hurt!” the girl said. Apparently we have a girlie-girl on the crew. Then, all our spheres started to glow. Everybody took them out, and they all started floating. They rose high, they got brighter and brighter till we had to cover our eyes, then, and they all fell into our hands. Wow! They all turned into amulets! “Oooooh!! Perr-it-tyyy!” the girlie said. “This is amazing!” Wolf said gawking at his; Dylan and I just gazed at ours silently. Finally, I was the first one to make the first move, I raised the necklace over my head, and put it on, one by one, we all put them on. Then they shone brightly.
“NEWCOMBERS. TWO ARE NEW, TWO HAVE KNOWN. YOU ALL HOLD THE UNIVERSES IN YOUR HANDS. ICE, MYTH, YOU BOTH SHALL HOLD GREAT DESTINY WITH THE OTHER WIELDERS. ICE/FEAR, MYTH/WISDOM, FIRE/POWER; STORM/COURAGE. YOU’VE STILL NEED TO FIND SYMPHANY OF DEATH, AND GRIEF OF LIFE. THAN, THE GATHERING TO SAVE THE UNIVERSES SHALL BEGIN, BUT ONLY IF YOU ARE ALL UNITED AS A TEAM! TELL NO ONE EXCEPT FOR THE WEILDERS. LET THIS PRINT IN YOUR HEAD, YOU WILL REMEMBER….. REMEMBER……”
The booming voice died away. It became pitch black; we all fell in front of Bartleby. “Now that was, like, totally weird.” The girlie said. “Oh right,” Wolf says, “uh, Aly, this is Fiona Iceshade, Fiona, this is Alexis Heartflare.” I give her a smile; she just flicks her wrist at me. “Wolf, Fiona, this is my little brother Dylan, Dylan, this is Wolf Winterblade and like he said earlier Fiona Iceshade.” I finish off.
“Well, I guess we only need two more wielders than?” Dylan asked.
“Yep.” Wolf replies.
“Waitwaitwait!” Fiona says shaking her hands, “You mean to say that Aly here will hold power? And Wolf will, like, hold courage? And Dill will show wisdom and all that? But why me? Why do I have to be fear? That’s just totally unfair!!”
My gosh! We hold the universes in our palms and have a mission to save all humanity and all she’s worried about is our ‘powers’ or whatever they are! I sigh, “This is a lot harder than what I thought it was going to be…”
We all walk together to each and every school and talk to every teacher; we all learned at least one spell. Let’s see… Wolf learned storm-trap and the kraken spell, Fiona learned evil snowman, tower-shield, and ice wyvern. Dylan learned blood bat and scarab, since he’s new and all. And I learned fire-trap and meteor strike. So as the saying goes… you learn something new every day! Tee-hee! “Now what?” Wolf asks, “I don’t know about you guys but… I’m ready for some action!”
“Ya right dork-o! I’ve had enough for, like, one day!” Fiona says as she walks away.
“I guess she’s right… I mean, we didn’t find any other wielders…” Dylan says reasonably.
“So that’s a wrap for today than!” I say finally,
“Hey Wolf? Can you show Dylan where the boy dorms are?”
“Sure thing Aly.” Wolf says.
We all say our goodbyes and go our separate ways to the dorms. Man do I have a lot on my mind today! Two more wielders and that’s when the party starts! Yippee!!
I just hope everything goes as planned…
Heeeyy! I’ve just noticed! I’m now level 19!! How cool is that?!?!?
Yooooowwwww!!! That hurt! I tripped on something… now what is this little thing? I pick up a yucky-yellow-like mustard colored cube. Now what can this be? Hmmmmm… better go show Headmaster Ambrose this….
