I'm not gonna be the one to let this die!! D:<
I was sitting on the living room floor, playing dinosaurs with my 6-year-old brother. I was having fun, at least until my phone vibrated in my pocket. I took out my phone and groaned when I saw the all-too-familiar number on the screen. A really annoying jock from school, Jackson, was always texting me and trying to attract me, but there was no way I'd ever be attracted to that idiot. If you're wondering why he has my phone number when I don't like him, it's because a "friend" gave it to him even though she knew I didn't like him. Needless to say, we're not friends anymore. Anyways, I heard the front door open and I looked over to see dad coming into the house with the mail.
"Hey, dad." I greeted with a smile.
"Hey, Nova, Weston." He greeted the two of us, returning the smile.
"Dad, I think I need to change my phone number. Jackson keeps texting me and trying to call me. It's really annoying." I said, getting up and walking over to Dad. He looked at my phone and scowled.
"That boy doesn't know when to quit. Alright, go ahead and change your number while I go through this mail." He replied and I nodded.
"Okay." I said and changed my number on my phone. Not even a minute after I finished changing my number, Dad handed me an envelope.
"You got some mail, Nova." He said with a smile and I grabbed the envelope from him. I opened the envelope and took out the letter that was inside, then I read the letter.
You have been accepted and invited to Zadona, the school for elemental youths. What's is an elemental you ask? And elemental is a human being with the power over an element. Elementals are much rarer then ordinary humans so I'm not surprised if you haven't ever heard of us. There are so few of us that every new class we invite is made up of only a handful of teens. We want to inform you that you're an elemental and are invited to join us at Zadona. At Zadona you will learn regular school subjects such as math and spelling, but you will also learn how to control your element and learn about the dangers you must face in the future. With you parent's permission and your choice pack a medium sized suitcase with ideal things and be outside your house by 3:30 P.M. tomorrow. I can't wait to see you there!
Sincerely, Ms. Johnson ((Zadona's headmaster))
I was surprised by what I read. I didn't even know that there was a school for elementals like me. I handed the letter to Dad.
"Dad, read this." I told him and he grabbed the letter and read through it.
"There's a school for elementals?" He questioned aloud, obviously surprised.
"Do you think it's a scam? It sounds interesting, but I don't want to walk into a trap." I said, not that I was really worried about walking into a trap. I knew I could protect myself, I just hoped to hear that my dad knew that, too. And I wasn't disappointed. Dad chuckled and put his hand on my head.
"Come on, now. We both know you could make it out of a trap unscathed. I'd be more worried about the people trying to trap you!" He said with a laugh and I smiled, proudly.
"I know. I just wanted to hear you say it. So, I should go, then?" I questioned and he nodded.
"I don't see why not. Go get packing for tomorrow." He said and I smiled and headed to my room.
"Novie! Wait! Don't go!" Weston, my little brother, hugged my legs with a pouty face. I chuckled a bit.
"Don't worry, Weston. I'm sure I'll be able to come visit during holidays. I won't be gone forever." I replied and he seemed happy to hear me say that.
"Oh, okay.." He said and let go of me so I could go pack.
