Okay, I know in the past
I've always trashed my stories halfway thru
But this is different
Cause I've figured out the whole story,
Beginning to end, so now I just have to put it into chapters for u guys to read!
This is the first chapter!
I know it's kinda long, but thats because
I have to give a lot of info for it to make sense
The rest of the chapters wont be as long (except for an occasional few)
If u see anything written inside these: [ ] it means that I'm giving info for the reader and it's not actually part of the story.
'where am I?'
Everything was hazy. I felt scared. I looked around and saw shadowy figures up ahead.
"Hey!" I called as I ran over to them.
But they didn't even hear me. As I got closer the shadowy figures turned into 4 people. They were all wearing strange hooded robes that hid their faces. Each robe was a different color: green, white, blue, and gold. The robes were covered in ancient markings, all centered around one single symbol: a strange swirly design. [I'll upload a pic of the symbol when I get home] the symbol looked familiar but I couldn't think of where I'd seen it before. Then the hooded figure in green pulled back his hood. He had dark brown hair and sharp, green eyes, but he looked only old enough to be 14! He addressed the group:
"The time of darkness has passed. There is no longer any need for Fortune's Five."
'Fortune's Five?' I wondered. I only saw 4 people.
"but what will become of us, Toro?" The blue hooded figure pulled back her hood. She had light brown hair and deep blue eyes.
"Kaylie, you know very well that we will soon die." replied Toro "We will be reincarnated when we are once again needed. That is our destiny."
Kaylie whimpered and the white hooded figured held her hand. She pulled back her hood. She had silvery blonde hair and crystal eyes.
"You know we will come back once again" she told Kaylie.
Kaylie turned to face her. "But we always come back in times of peril! Look at me and tell me that you don't wish that would could just be normal teenagers, Inali!"
Inali looked at her hands.
"Kaylie is right!"
The gold hooded figure stepped forward. The others turned to face her. She did not remove her hood like the others. And, unlike the others, whose robe's ancient markings were gold, the markings on her golden robe were silver. I figured that she must be the leader.
"We spread peace on the earth and deliver the people from misery, but we get nothing in return! Not a single ounce of happiness!"
Inali placed a gentle hand on her shoulder.
"It is our destiny." she said gently. "The fates have decided what will become of us, and you must trust them."
"Why should we trust them?!" the leader demanded. "We never get to experience the joy and peace we give others! We live and die in times of evil and hatred." she looked at her hands. "And," she whispered "consumed by this evil, we lost our fifth member....."
The group hung their heads in silence. I heard the leader let out a tiny sob.
"Zuno will always be remembered, Nalia." said Toro gently. I let out a tiny gasp; Nalia is MY name!
Nalia looked up suddenly and her hood fell off; I could see her clearly now: She had wavy black hair and dark brown eyes. She looked like me! ..... Except, she looked powerful and in control. She couldn't possibly be me..... Could she?
She is you.....
I looked around for the strange voice. Suddenly everything was covered in a dense fog.
"What's going on?!" I asked
She is your past, Nalia..... And now you must prepare for the future.....
"What do you mean?" I asked
A great danger is coming..... You must protect the people.....
"What am I supposed to do?"
Find the others..... The others will help you.....
"How will I find them?" I asked
Fate will bring you together..... Find the other four.....
"Four?" I questioned "but they said Zuno disappeared! Even if I could somehow find Toro, Kaylie, and Inali, how will I find Zuno?!"
Find the others, and you shall be victorious in the great battle to come..... If you do not, we are all doomed..... Find the others, Nalia... Nalia... Nalia...
"Nalia! Nalia! Wake up!"
I opened my eyes. I saw my 12 year old sister Malina, who was shaking me as if the world was ending. I groaned and sat up. I looked at the clock.
"Its 7:30!!!!!" I exclaimed "I'm gonna be late for school!"
I pushed her out of my room and then began getting ready for school. Because Im in 9th grade, school started at 8.
As I quickly ran a comb through my short black hair, I thought back to my dream. Was i really supposed to help save the world? How was i gonna find the others? Was this actually happening or was the dream just that: a dream? I had so many questions!
I sighed and looked at my reflection in the mirror: with my tangled black hair, and narrow brown eyes, I looked nothing like the elegant and powerful leader I had seen in my dream. Could it actually be possible that it was up to me to save the world?
