Updated~ Wow, you guys really are crazy! I read the last post, but I didn't see it until I'd already posted this...is it alright if I just keep this part?
Nahla here with the........................................................second chapter! (Here it is)~
"Careful!" I shouted to Giles. "You almost killed me!"
"S-s-sor-r-ry," Giles mumbled. He looked like he was about to cry. Whoa this guy was sensitive.
"It's okay. Really." I tried not to make him cry, because for some reason it seemed like a really bad idea. "No harm done, right?" But I was too late. Just as I thought he was about to start bawling, there was a crackling sound, and overhead I saw a storm-cloud. Then it started to cry. Not Giles, the cloud. Giles sobbed, but his tears were pouring down from above the classroom, and in seconds everyone was soaked in...saltwater. From a cloud. There was a miniature lightning bolt that shot down not three feet from me, and the air felt static-y.
It was about then I decided to get out of there.
I dashed out of the room and almost fell off the ledge surrounding the building. There was no railing, and the ground was about 300 feet below. I turned, planning on taking the stairs, but Jill and two of her elf-friends were standing in my way, dripping wet and smiling mischievously.
"Where do you think you're going?" she asked.
"Yeah, we want to know why you just ran out of there," the girl on her left said in a mocking tone. "We were just going to ask you if you want us to teach you to fly."
"As if he actually could fly," the one on her right added. They snickered.
I knew I couldn't trust them, but I just wanted to learn so badly that I nodded, not even wondering why they offered to help and they themselves had no wings.
"Right," Jill said, her smile growing larger. "First thing you need to learn is footing, so you don't fall off like this," and she pushed me off the edge.
My only thought was AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! I closed my eyes. It didn't even cross my mind to open my wings.
Something changed, but I didn't really notice. It took me awhile, but I opened my eyes and noticed that now I was falling up. Jill and her friends were about 300 feet below me, which meant the ground was 600 feet down. I really hoped I didn't start falling down again.
A few seconds later I saw the branches on the Tree getting thinner, and I started to slow down. Then, I stopped moving, and somehow was floated over onto one of the top-most branches (it was still thick enough for me to land and not fall off). There, standing on it, was...Giles?...and also a large black owl resting on his right shoulder. Giles' eyes were tightly closed, and he seemed to be concentrating extremely hard. But the owl pecked his ear, and, though its beak didn't move, I heard it say, Giles. He's here. The voice sounded like an echo inside my head, like it was hollow. Weird. The last time I checked, there was something in there.
Giles slowly opened his eyes, and as soon as he saw me he smiled and said, "I-it w-worked! Yes, it-t-t worked, Kasha!"As if suspecting what he was about to do, Kasha lifted off his shoulders, and Giles ran and nearly squeezed all the feathers off of me. "Y-y-y-you lived!" he said. "I s-saved you-u! A-all I s-s-said w-was Voranath, a-and..." I screeched as I started floating in the air, along with Giles. "Oops," he said, and suddenly we fell back onto the branch, Giles landing on top (of course). The weird echo-y voice in my head chuckled, and the owl, Kasha, flew over to us. By that time we'd gotten up and I was looking at Giles and Kasha in turn, wondering what was going on.
(By the way, Luke, Kasha is one of my main characters that I just created on the spur of the moment. She's really a black owl, and a _______ (what's the name for a female wizard?))
Anyway' that's all for now, folks! (Tell me if I should change something, EKUL.)
