MY STORY PART 2 (continuation)
"Why me? Out of all the other kids on the world?!", I asked Keith as we were walking on a carved pathway along a stream which was flowing in the exact opposite direction we were going in, which fell down into a waterfall that we have passed earlier. "Because Olvan sent me all the way from GreenHaven castle to Eura just to get you."
"Then why did Olvan send you to pick me up?'
"Because Lenori believes that you are the one the prophecy spoke of."
"Then know did she know that I was the one in the prophecy?"
"Because she had a vision", Keith said, "Listen up, Xian. You are the one the prophecy spoke of, and whether you like it or not, you are the one that will save the world." I guessed that it wouldn't be worth it trying to save to argue with Keith. For one thing, I was in the prophecy. the world, You have to save the world, whether you LIKE IT OR NOT!" Keith's words echoed up and down my brain as we continued walking up the steep trail. I was beginning to feel very hungry, tired and thirsty even though we have stopped to have a snack, rest, and get a fresh, clean, drink of water from the river. we sat down on two boulders to rest so we could enjoy the view of the waterfall and the rainbow created from pure, white light that the water was bending. He explained to me how rainbows were created as we ate our corn on the cob, and I explained to him that when I was very younge, like, five years old, how I was obsessed with rainbows and how i always set out to search for the pot of gold on the other side with my brother and sister. We continued walking along the river until i noticed that the river was slowly dissapearing, and when we were in the woods, I suddenly felt my body uncontrollably trembling with fear. "Hey, Keith?", I asked , shivering. "Yes, Xian?", he replied. "Do you think there are any wolves in this area of the forest?" "No, Xian. Don't worry. This is Amaya. There are no wolves or coyotes or any wild canines of that sort in Amaya. i hope.", he scratched his chin, and then continued, "Besides... even if there are any wolves here, I promise I will protect you... with all my might."
Several days of endless journeying, hark working, and sigh seeing days went by. "Keith? What if Lenori os wrong, and i don't summon a spirit animal?" "Don't worry", Keith said, "Lenori is never wrong. every vision that she had came true." We walked for a few more hours, and I was wondering what spirit animal I was going to get. I thought maybe i wanted a strong, predatory animal that could grant me great courage, strenght, and perserverance. I felt like i needed that in my life. In about an hour, we reached a clearing in the middle of the woods, and Keith whispered to me, "Here it is, Xian, the moment of truth." "It's been a long journey, but you've done well. i... know you must miss your home." "But why am I even here?", i asked Keith. "Olvan and Lenori are just up ahead. They'll explain what's going on." "ok", I whispered nervousley, walking towards Olvan and Lenori. "This is the one?," said Olvan.
"Yes. It's the same as my vision.", said Lenori.
"Thank you, Keith. We will take it from here. Why don't you scout the way back to GreenHaven?"
Keith shrugged. "Awesome, more walking," he said sarcastically. "Good luck with your nectar ceremony. I hope we meet again."
I waved him a good bye and smiled, "yeah, bye! Thank you so much for taking me here and for saving my life two weeks ago!"
"Take care!", he waved good bye, and retreated from view. "Hello, Young one. My name is Olvan, leader of the GreenCloakes. I'm sorry to have brought you so far but times are deperate."
"It's okay, really.", I said, "I didn't really enjoy my life at home anyway, but why am i even here?."
"Very few people in Erdas ever summon a spirit animal. It's a wonderful gift, but a rare one. Lenori believes you are one of the chosen few."
"and how exactly do i summon a spirit animal?", i asked. Don T be nervous. all you have to do is drink from the nectar of niani. It only takes one sip. here." Lenori offered a bowl to me and i accepted it. i was a little bit nervous to drink from the nectar of Ninani, but something about is was strangely tempting to me. I held the bowl up to my lips, took a deep breath, and swallowed. I savored the nectar, for it was toe only sweet thing i ever had in my life. I smiled as i swallowed the last bit of it in my mouth. once it was all gone, i literally felt like the world was spinning. and suddenly a blinding flash blurred my vision. i fell backwards onto the ground, when suddenly, a huge, pitch black shape was slowly clearing from blurry circles, and into the shape of a midnight black panther. i would have just run away from it, but no. this was my spirit animal, and this was the animal that i was going to save the world with.
