Dangerous places

This idea came from here

You came home to a silent house. Your parents sat alone at the kitchen table, barely nibbling at their food. The television that usually played the evening news at this time was switched off. When you inquired about the off mood, your mother looked away and your father nodded towards the hallway — towards the room you shared with your only sibling.

The note, as well as the tiny pendant that accompanied it, that you discovered on your sibling’s desk in that strangely empty room changed everything that day.


I ran to her room, no, this couldn’t be true, she couldn’t have run away without me, we were supposed to run away together!I grabbed the note, and immidiately recognized our way of communicating.

Dear Inia,
Our parents went to the end of my line, I cannot stay any longer.
This is no goodbye, I simply say farewell.

Remember all the fairy tales our nanny used to tell us?
They are true. I found a magic place deep in the forest, I went
there and found the immposible, the anwser to all my questions.

Please look for them and give them this letter, they’ll know where
to find me. If I’m still alive by then.

I am so sorry I have to leave you behind, but they raped me,
both of them, and mum was just watching. I never imagined Nath
would be able to go this far.

Please don’t be mad on me.

Your beloving sister,

Lyrica

That was it, the end for me. I knew what would happen at the moment Nath would be home. I grabbed the note, and the bracelet. There was no way back for them. Walking to my side of our shared room I grabbed the stuff which was hiding underneath my bed.
My bag,
My hard earned money,
My waterproof warm jacket,
Spare clothes,
My sleeping bag,
My small light airbed and
They keys of my new bike which I hide in the forest a week ago.

I put everything in my bagpack with a rush, then I walked over to my sister’s bed and grabbed all the food we spared and put in my bag. Along with the watercleaner and field book for eatable plants. “Mum, dad! I’ll be going to Elicia. She asked me over tonight for a sleeping party. I told you last week right?”
The practised lie was over my lips and before anyone could doubt it I vanished. Knewing my dad would probarbly follow me as I left, I actually ran to house I told them Elicia lived. She didn’t actually live there, but a friend of me and Lyrica did. She opened the door and I went in and closed the door before she could say anything.

Standing in front of Nicole I bursted in tears. “S.. Sh-.. *sinvels* SHE’S GONE!” I yelled. I’m alone, the world hates me, I can’t continue like this.”
Nicole wrapped her arms around me and tried to calm me down. “Where’s Lyrica?” she asked me.
“THEY RAPED HER! LIKE SHE WAS A PUPPED!” I didn’t see it, but I knew it was true. It was because I was able to see the past, at the moment I took a look at my sister’s bed I knew it. The horror what happened there was burnt in my eyes. There was no way I would ever forget it.

I pushed Nicole away from me and rushed to the bathroom. I got there just in time, reaching the toilet I let my tears go, I nearly drowned in them, but luckily the toilet was able to drain it away just in time. I heard a shocking voice. And I turned just in time to see Nicole faint.

Leaving a note for Nicole, and leaving her on the cough I left her house. I was sure nobody would be able to follow me anymore. Wandering through the forest I found my bike. Hiding behind some sheets and leafs but still new. And it wasn’t just a bike. It had 21 gears and was for rough terrain. I packed everything on my bike ate an apple and started cycling away from the village I had lived in for over 17 years.

This was it, no goodbye, but a farewell, like my sister said. I would only return here to kill Nath, and my parents or not at all. I shivered. Even though it was late Spring it would still be able to freeze at night. I zipped up my jacket and looked at the sky. There was no moon, no stars, like the sky was hiding me. Nobody would be able to find me, ever, again.

Dragon Scales (2)

I wake up on a bed made of leaves. Where am I? This is not Granny’s place. I try to stand up so I can sit but my head is too heavy. So I just stay in the position I am and close my eyes. What’s wrong with me? I have never been sick before. How can I be now?! Then I remember… Granny! What happened to her? I just hope she isn’t hurt or whatever.

“Serina?” “Serina are you all right?”
“Wh.. W-h.. Wh.. Who are you?” I find it myself difficult to talk, for some reason. Why can’t I just be normal like Lynn in those kind of situations.. I sigh. I will never learn, will I?

“Ohh, good, at least you can speak.”
“Do you know who I am?”

“Wh.. W-hoo.. Who you are?” Every minut that goes on, I feel something growing under my arm. What is it, and why am I here..
I try to open my eyes again. Slowely they open and then I see it. In
front of me is an dragon! How is this even possible, dragons are
extinct!

“Aah, yes I’m a dragon. But not any kind of dragon. I’m the last Dragon in the line of human transfers.”

Slowely I seem to be getting a hold on myself. A dragon! Unbelieveble! I always wished to meet one, ever since my granddad told me that story about The Divine Dragon. Would the dragon out of his story still be alive, or was it just an story after all? Finally accepting I’m in a somewhat magical home I try sitting again. With all my willpower I face the dragon.

“I’ll ask again.” “Who are you? And what is this place, what am I doing here?” “How can you be alive? And wha-”

“Don’t get too excited Serina, I’ll anwser your questions one by one. But you’ll have to anwser the first one yourself.”

“But I can’t! I know nothing of this place!” I yell to him.

“But you can, I know you can, just remember.” His voice stays so calm, even though I’m yelling at him. At that point I have deep respect for the lonely one. He must have been so terrible lonely all times. No wonder he stays calm, now that he finally found a living person. I
wonder how long he has been here for. I mean, a dragon doesn’t appear out of nowhere. it’s way to big to hide anywhere!

Then I remember something granddad said long ago. “If you feel like leaving the past behind, forget it, it’s not an option. It never was for me either.” Come on Serina! Think! I say to myself. Then I remember and get dragged into an memory.

And old man sits across of me. When I want to ask him something, I hear a laughing voice.

“Granddad! Granny is being mean to me! I’m not allowed to get another cake!”

“Don’t worry about it my child, we’ll just sneak into the kitchen when she isn’t there.” He smiles to the little kid and continues to read in ‘The Magician’s Newspaper’.

“Granddad?” the little girl asks again. “Why is Granny always so stiff when you two are together? Aren’t you supposed to be just like mum and dad?” The old man smiles and opens his mouth to speak.

“Listen closely Serina.”

I gasps. Realising I’m the little girl, and this is one of my hidden memories. Yes, that will be it. The day after my granddad died, well not the day he died, actually the day the Rulemakers said he died, there came a letter. Nobody saw it arriving luckily. It was pure luck. My window was open, and somehow an paper plane landed on my desk. All it said was ‘Open me’. Of course, that’s exactly what I did. A small letter showed up.

 

 

Dear Serina,

This plane, it’s magic. I invented it when I was in Magic School. I was the best. Nobody was able to do the stuff I did. Except for this one girl. After a while, we became more than friends. We made plans for the future and spent as much time as possible together. But just after our little one got born, we got attacked.

It was all because of our jobs. Working for the Rulemakers isn’t anything you know. We did the most dangerous jobs and quit because of the little one. She told me she was going to save me. “It will be the last time I enter my dragon form” she said. “Please protect and take care of her. I love you.” she switched to her mighty dragon friend and together they died while I fled.

The rest of the story you know, the kid sadly died but I found your grandmother and lived happily together.

Still there is something you should know, sometimes you and me had conversations about stuff you shouldn’t know. You’ll remember them because I’m most likely dead if you read this. That’s the magic of the Paper Plane.

I’m sorry I never came to say goodbye.
Granddad

I had tears in my eyes but I had to focus from myself. It seemed like I paused my memory though. Play? Apparently it worked, and granddad started talking again.

“Granny knows who I am, even more then you think she knows. She’s still mad because I hid my first kid for her. But I just couldn’t tell her, it would have broken me. But ever since she found out she’s acting like this. And not only that, I think she was a member of the group who attacked me.”

Granddad all looked broken and then I got the pieces all together. Granny said something to me before I fainted! Was it a sort of spell? Did she do this to get revenge on him? But that means! …. That dragon! It’s my granddad!

Dragon Scales

This idea came from here

Everything has been normal in your life lately, aside from the strange and bothersome itch on the back of your arm. The area has become increasingly rough over the past couple of days, so you take to the mirror to investigate. You are shocked to find that a patch of hard, blue scales has erupted from your skin and is beginning to spread.

What happens now?


I just can’t believe it! Is this really true? I turn the spot back at the mirror again and take a closer look. Yes, this is really like in Granddad’s stories. Would I be the Legendary Dragon then? I sit down and sigh. No, I can’t be… This must be an mistake.. It’s impossible that I’m the Chosen one. And besides, I wasn’t even selected to use magic!

I grab my shirt from the chair in the bathroom and run downstairs. “Mum!” I yell through our house, “Where are you?!” I hear a soft voice in my mind who tells me not to yell that hard. I mutter a bit to it: “it’s not my fault I can’t use magic Lynn, don’t make me remember!” The last part really made me sound angrier than I ever had been before. “Mum!” I yell again.

Then finally there is a response. “I’m in the kitchen darling, please keep your voice down.”

I sprint to the kitchen and see my mum sitting with my older sister Lynn. They are both looking at the little boy who is crawling on the table. “I’m going to Granny’s, see you later mum!” I quickly walk by and hug her before I go outside.

In the end I decided to run to Granny’s. Somehow I’ve always been able to run forever but I never told someone. According to the stories Granddad used to tell me, it might be dangerous. My mood turns sad. Why did he have to leave us so early. He was only just about a human’s age. Not even that old for an Magician. I still don’t get it.

There was a message last week. I remember Granny took the Bird Service to our home. And she never takes the BS. She’d always walk to us for her fresh air and health. Everyone knew her time to pass would soon come. It can’t go on like this. Someone has to figure out what really happened to my Granddad. I know he’s still alive. I don’t trust the Rulemakers. They turned stupidly over 10 years back.

I look up. Seems I already arrived at my Grandmum’s place.

Before I get the chance to ring the door it swings open. “Aah, Serina, darling come in, come in.” I quickly go inside and run to my favourite chair.

“Granny..” I start. But before I am able to go on I get interrupted.

“Serina please it’s been ages since I last saw you. How old are you now, 25, 26?”

“The Magician Medic said I was still 17 Granny.” I look her in the face and she has a puzzled look in her eyes.

“Darling, that’s impossible and you know it. You’re human remember.”

“Well, talking about human….”

I lift my shirt and show her the Blue spot. Except for the fact it’s not a small itcing spot anymore. A whole part of my stomach and back is being covered by the once blue, but are now colourful scales. Granny gasps. Then she grabs my arm and says 3 simple but not understandable words.

“Shjin Lihgto Shjin”

I wake up in a field of grass. Where am I? Am I dreaming? Is that even possible? I try to move my arms to rub my sleep out of my eyes when I start screaming.

“Hey, hey, Serina, calm down. It’s not the end of the world.” An familiar voice happens to be above me. I look up and faint…
