Hey everyone. Before the story, I just wanted to say some things. One is that,
Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 are meant to be together. But they're just too big for the
diary entries thingy and I didn't want anyone's fingers hurting because it's too
long. If you want to see the combined chapters, it's in the arenas. I guess just look
for it. So..Here's Chapter 2.
Ereya Chloris, a seventeen year old girl from Galia, a small town dreams of exploring
the realm she lives on, Teruma. But, because of her curiosity, she ends up getting
her wish the wrong way. Now, she's off to explore the whole of Lire. And to the
vanquished golden city of Iona.
I was standing there with my best friend, Talia watching Sabrina's posse shake their
little rears, flouncing their hair. It wasn't such a pretty sight. See, the tallest
one of them is probably only 5 feet tall. And when you see little elementary girls
show off like that, you can't help but shudder.
Destiny is in another class, up where the college-leveled students are. As I have
already told you, Destiny is Ms. Smarty Pants. I don't do bad at school, but I'm not
where my sister is. The oldest is always better they say. Yet, Destiny's scared of a
tiny dog. We were different with each other, although we held the same appearances as
the rest of the town does.
And it's because of my difference did I got myself into big, big trouble.
Sabrina was there near the door to her classroom, speaking with her friends in a
hushed tone. I could hear her saying, "Listen, listen closely. Remember how my father
visited Teruma, the capital?" Her friends obediently nodded.
"He says that the schools there teach elemental magic. Of course, I would want to
learn magic but I love this town too much to leave." Sabrina continued and flipped a
strand of her hair.
I rolled my eyes, but knew that I myself was interested. Elemental magic..If I could
learn that, I could explore Teruma without worrying about dangers. I'd just be able
to protect myself! It was the perfect plan.
Just then, my history teacher, Mrs. Pratts opened the door and hissed for us to come
in. Now..How to describe Mrs. Pratts. Just imagine a 70 year old woman with a wicked
look on her face, carrying a meter stick. Got it in your head? Good. Don't be scared.
She's not actually scary without the meter stick. I repeat, without the meter stick.
I took my seat next to Talia and licked my lips. It's practically burning in here.
Mrs. Pratts began to take her huge history book out and began to explain the
geography of the realm we were a bit connected to, Deria.
"Deria has a shaping between an oval and a rectangle." She drew it on the board and I
raised my eyebrows. Borrriiing.
"Because it has a simple shape, building defensive walls around it were extremely
easy." She continued. I sighed.
"But the people overestimated the power of their walls, and it fell soon. But of
course, that is another lesson altogether." I yawned.
"Geography is an important part of the lesson. But, I have another announcement to
attend to. Now, before you worry, it is not bad news."
Ooh. It became interesting. I straightened up and stared at her with a look that
probably looked eager. I think.
"I have no idea if you know this, but Teruma the capital is looking for students
interested to learn elemental magic. Now, let me tell you, such a thing to learn is
extremely difficult. But, it will take your mental and physical being to practice,
which is why I am certain that it will give you positive results."
I turned to Talia, but Mrs. Pratts continued to speak.
"It is of your choice and of ours. Before Teruma accepts you, you must be accepted by
your own school first. We choose only those who are well-behaved, eager, who has a
positive attitude, who doesn't slack off and most importantly, one who would
represent Galia properly."
Okay..Maybe I won't get in.
"Do you understand?"
All thirty-three heads probably nodded because she gave a shadow of a smile.
"Good. Now, let us return to the geographic features of Deria."
Ugh. Here we go again.
