Hey everyone~ Miharu here. This is my new story called Wishes. Some people may not
know the main character, but I've used her for roleplays a couple of times. The main
character's name is Ereya Laverne Chloris. At first, I wanted her to be of high class
or royalty but I took a Mary-Sue quiz and decided that she shouldn't be a princess.
So here it is.
I have heard tell of a great golden city called Iona. Born in Galia, a small town at
the tip of the peninsula connecting two realms together, and a commoner, it is an
impossible dream to find it. You see, it has been turned into a dark palace by the
Nariads. And never will I, Ereya Chloris approach such a deep and foul place.
I was born like most people in Galia, with a fair complexion and dark-blond hair. My
family works as shop-keepers and we are, as much happiness I can say, a very happy
family. I was born to Claudine and Barrett Chloris. I have an elder sister named
Destiny, about five years older than I am.
Destiny and I go to a school, where only girls attend. Of course there are cliques,
girls who have richer families than most. Sabrina Larum, the most beautiful of all (I
have concluded that her personal doctor had arranged her face), had been spreading
rumors of herself marrying a young captain in the desert realm, Deria. I didn't
believe her. She was twelve years old.
Destiny was much more brainy and witty than I was. I was an average student, failing
though at proper manners. I was too jumpy and energetic, as they say. I countered
that I was sixteen, and should be off outside planting new plants or somewhere where
exciting things happen. Obviously, my opinion didn't matter much.
My mother and father encouraged me to be more tentative and more focused about my
learning. As you can see, their encouragements aren't really working. The only thing
I was actually good at was calligraphy. Writing different symbols and words just
seems so fascinating. English was boring. History was even more boring. And proper
manners? Blech. Music was all right, if only I could control my voice.
My wish someday is to explore Teruma, the forest realm in which Galia is part of. You
see, traveling and finding out new things in this land is what I've always wanted to
do. Not packed up in a dusty classroom listening to my teachers for five years speak
about how the Derians conquered the what-she-just-said.
Unfortunately, sometimes wishes come true. And sometimes, they come true in a wrong
way. Meaning they don't go the way you want it to. See, my journeys starts with my
hometown, Galia. With the twelve-year old Sabrina talking about earth elemental magic
being taught in the capital city of Teruma. Of course, learning magic is very
exciting. Exactly what I wanted.
Destiny had seen my eyes light up and knew that I was up to something. And she had to
Before I knew it, I was off starting a dangerous quest. One that might end my life
and my sister's. And I had my wish of course. To explore Teruma. But it wasn't only
Teruma I had to go to. I had to journey up north to Winora, the realm of the winds.
Then to Sater, the realm of the waters. And of course, Deria, the desert realm. Lire,
the whole land I had set off to see.
What I didn't expect was my journey to the center of it all.
