Prologue:


It all started after May disappeared. 


Hello, dear readers. My name is Simon Walker, and I have a story to tell. So, make yourself comfortable in your nice, cushiony chair, and take a sip of hot chocolate. Don't spill it on these pages, though. These pages hold a story. 


My story. 


It's a story about how the world ended. It's a very important story, mind you. So pay attention. It's not a story that you want to be repeated. It's not a story you want to see twice in history books. It's my story. So, lift these pages up to the light, and here we go...

Chapter 1:

 

Have you ever had the feeling that your heart is just going to explode out of your chest? 

 

That's how I felt when I stood on the wooden platform, waiting my turn to be Tested. 


In Narua, everyone is Tested for magic when they turn twelve. When they call your name out, last name first, you step up to the podium and place your hand on the Naruan Diamond. If it turned white, you were a Mystic. If it turned black, you were a Mythic. If it turned gray... You were one of the Powerless. 

 

My heart was thumping for that last reason. If I was a Powerless... 

 

No. I told myself firmly. You are not powerless. Do you hear me, Simon Walker? You have a power. 

 

That's what I told myself over and over again as the time of the Testing grew nearer. Beside me, my twin brother, Lar, stood. Despite the fact that we were twins, we looked absolutely nothing alike. I had dark, curly brown hair, freckles, and sapphire-colored eyes, Lar had straight blond hair and aquamarine-colored eyes. Often, people looked confused when they realized that we were even related. 

On my other side, my best friend, May Evans, stood. Her green eyes reflected anxiety and worry, and her shoulder-length blond hair was slightly tousled, as if she hadn't spent much time on her hair. I reached over and grabbed her hand. We'd known each other since we were six, and yet, she still surprised me at the least expectant times. 

"You scared?" I whispered in her ear. She grinned, pushing away all the worry that had been stored in her green gaze. "You wish." 

I opened my mouth to say something else when I heard the fanfare. May let out a long sigh. This fanfare was really getting old. Every child in Narua learned the melody of the fanfare when they were five. Why? Because the fanfare was so special. What was special about a bunch of trumpets playing a melody over and over? 

 

Exactly. In my amateur musical opinion, nothing. (Don't take this personally. I'm just not a fan of fanfares.) 


Two hooded figures stepped out from behind the curtain. The one in white placed a clear crystal on a large wooden pedestal. They spread their arms. "Welcome, Naruans, to this year's Testing!" 

It was a female voice that spoke from underneath the white hood. I assumed that this was Daylight, the guardian of the Mystics. She was a legend in all of the recorded history of Narua. 

Beside her, I guessed was Nightfall, the guardian of the Mythics. He was known for being dark and moody about everything. 

The crystal was definitely the famous Naruan Diamond. Whatever color you received upon your fingers touching the cold crystal determined your entire future. 

Daylight unrolled a scroll and cleared her voice. Then, she called out, "Austin, Quail!" 

A girl named Quail Austin stepped up onto the raised wood platform and placed her hand on the Naruan Diamond. A mist appeared in the clear crystal, and I watched as it turned inky black. Quail drew her hand back and walked over to Nightfall's side of the platform, which was painted a night black color. 

Daylight then read off the second name. "Bailey, Dania!" 

My mind was pretty much numb through the Testing until Daylight called, "Evans, May!" 

I released my hold on May's hand as she stepped up to the platform. She placed her hand on the Naruan Diamond, and the mist turned white. She removed her hand and walked over to the white side. I then proceeded to daydream until I heard a very significant name. 

"Walker, Larimar!" 

Lar walked up and turned to glare at Daylight before he placed his hand on the diamond. "Just call me Lar." 

He turned back and pressed his hand against the misty crystal. The mist turned white. He removed his hand and walked off to the white side to stand next to May, who was watching me with a worried look on her face. I swallowed as Daylight read a name off her scroll. 

"Walker, Simon!" 

I felt a hard lump in my stomach as a wave of fear engulfed me. I stepped up to the platform, and placed my hand on the diamond. The mist changed color, but it wasn't white. Or black. Or gray. 

 

It was a brilliant sapphire blue.

Chapter 2:


Whispers spread through the crowd. I felt like a sunflower in a field of poppies. What had happened? Was I a Mystic, a Mythic, or was I a Powerless? 

Daylight and Nightfall exchanged looks from underneath their hoods, then locked eyes. All around, people were whispering and muttering. Even my parents were speaking to each other quietly. 

I heard Daylight clear her throat. "Well. This is... quite a strange occurrence." 

Duh. I thought in my head. 

"Since your magic shows no signs of inclination towards a specific side, we will allow you to first remain in Azuron Village, then let you spend time in Zathar Village. After that, you may choose whether to be a Mystic or a Mythic."

I felt a rush of relief. I wasn't a Powerless! 

Then, I felt panic again. What if I felt at home amongst the Mythics? Away from... 

I saw Lar and May exchange worried glances. Daylight nudged me towards the white side, then finished the Testing with "White, Ivory," who was sorted into Mythic. 

The crowd dispersed, and my parents shot a last look at me before Daylight spread her arms, and ushered the Mystics out of the Testing House. Nightfall ushered the Mythics away out of the opposite side. I didn't know how the Mythics got to Zathar Village, but I sure knew how the Mystics were going to get there. 


Dania Bailey squealed with delight when she saw the two snow-white pegasi, tapping their hooves against the ground, tossing their heads so their manes rippled. They were attached to a blinding white carriage that looked like it was carved from ivory and given the reflective properties of diamond. 

"Gah." Lar averted his gaze. "I think I'm looking at the Sky-Fire." 

"It's a carriage." I assured him. "If it really was a piece of the Sky-Fire, then all Mystics alive today would be blind." 

The Mystics all filed into a line and boarded the carriage one by one. I hung at the back, and when I stepped inside, I was blown away with amazement. "Great Sky-Silver..." 

The carriage was much bigger inside than it looked on the outside. Inside was the size of a small house, with an upstairs, and beds on the entry level. Light filtered in through unseen windows, dappling the walls and floor with splotches of golden light. Color decorated the whole place, red floors fading to orange, then yellow, then green on the walls, then right to indigo and violet on the ceiling. I frowned as I looked around the room. There wasn't a single splotch of blue anywhere. 

From thereon out, everyone was going crazy, squealing as loud and enthusiastically as Dania had when she had seen the pegasi. Daylight clapped her hands to get our attention. We all stared at her like baby owls. She cleared her throat. "We will be on a long flight to Azuron Village, and this will be our home for the time being. Treat it well, and it may give you a reward." 

"What about our things?" Falco Morgan piped up. 

"The moment the Testing was complete, they were loaded onto the carriage's storage room." Daylight informed him briskly. She swept her robes behind her. "If any one of you need me, I will be in my quarters." 

With a mini explosion of white sparkles, she was gone.

Chapter 3:

 

Okay, first night on the carriage. Don't do anything stupid in your sleep, Simon. 


I was in the bed I had selected for the journey, although sleeping seemed out of the question. The light was no different than it had been seven hours ago. 

At least, I assumed that it had been seven hours. There were no clocks here, nothing to tell us what time it was. Not even a stick. 


"Hey, Simon." 


I jumped as May suddenly spoke from next to me. She laughed. "Sorry if I scared you." 

"No, no, no. I was just... Jumping for practice." I said unconvincingly. She smirked. "Really?" 

I admired her attitude. The way she said things, as if life was the primary source of information for absolutely everything. I liked the way she stood up for what she knew was right. 


Long story short, I really liked her. 


Don't judge. I bet that you've never looked straight into a girl's eyes, both revealing and private at the same time. May's eyes were the most beautiful green color I'd ever seen. Greener than the most beautiful emerald in history. Her blond hair just reached her shoulders, short at the front, but fanning out into a sheet at the back, the longest point at the middle, just touching the back of her neck. Her hair wasn't golden, it was much paler, but darker than platinum blond. I thought she looked pretty. But once again, don't judge. 


"Simon, wake up!" 


I opened my eyes to see an upside-down face. I twisted myself around so my feet were where my head should have been, and vice versa. Lar was looking at me with a grumpy look on his face. His blond hair was sticking out in different directions, and his aquamarine eyes looked tired. I could see from the look on his face that he was heavily annoyed. I blinked in response. "What?" 

"We're arriving at Azuron Village. In thirty minutes." He said. "I've been trying to wake you up forever." 

I noticed that everyone else was already up. I blinked again. "How long have I been sleeping?" 

When I asked, Lar snickered. "I'll spare you from the embarrassment." 

I wondered what had happened, but I decided not to ask. I just got out of bed, walked upstairs to the bathroom, and washed my face. I braced my hands against the sink and stared at the reflection in the mirror. A face stared back. That face had light freckles, curly dark brown hair, and sapphire-blue eyes. It was me. Did I see myself in my past life as the eleven-year-old commoner from Narua City? 


Or did I see something else in those eyes that betrayed something dark?

Chapter 4:


I was frozen in a kind of awe as Daylight led us through Azuron Village, all the way towards the academy. The village consisted of a large market with a countless number of stalls and tents, filled to the brim with fruit that made my mouth water. And I swear that I saw a stall selling candy. I did have to admit... I did have a sweet tooth. 

I didn't get to see much else since Daylight led us through only the east side, but I could tell that the village was much bigger than the tiny portion I had seen. But no matter where you stood from, even if it was on the outskirts of the village, you would always see the academy. 

The academy was an enormous castle-like structure made from smooth stone, polished until it shone like diamond. It was decorated with ivory and crystal, and the four towers at its corners were tipped with a darker material that I couldn't quite identify. 

I felt something brushing against my arm, and turned my head to see May moving her hand into my palm. I clasped her hand instinctively. She didn't flinch. Even once. 

Once we had stepped past the large bronze doors of the Mystic Academy, Daylight spread her arms and spun on her heel. "Welcome, all, to the Mystic Academy! This is where you will be remaining for your five years of magical training! Over by the left, where Tessa Cici is standing—" 

Tessa gave a small wave from her side of the crowd to indicate where Daylight wanted to show. 

"—Are your dormitories! You have been assigned a dorm room, which you will find by searching for your name on the door. Once you find your room, you will unpack, and will be allowed to roam around the castle, to get used to the passageways. However, there is one rule." Daylight's eyes narrowed into thin slits. "Never go into the third hallway on the second floor. Otherwise, you may roam free around the castle and around Azuron Village. Oh, and please note that you are allowed to bring purchased items from the market into the castle, provided that you will not have them out during class, which is due to start in a month. Now, off you go!" 

Daylight flicked her wrist, and she vanished. We all scurried up the left staircase, and emerged into a narrow hallway. It was only wide enough for two people to go shoulder-to-shoulder at a time, their hands grazing the cold stone walls. Tessa and Tyler led the procession at the front, and we all stopped from time to time to read the names on the doors. I found my name carved into the smooth maroon wood of the second door. Below it were three more names: 


May Evans 

Larimar Walker 

Jada Parker 


So I would be sharing a room with my crush, my brother, and a girl from Narua City. 

I took a look at the other doors. They were speckled with names I remembered from the Testing. Then, a name from room 1 caught my eye. It was a name that I was sure had not been called out in the Testing. It was a name I had never heard mentioned before.

Chapter 5:


I felt a chill go down my spine. Where had this kid come from, if not from Narua City? Were there other places in Narua that did Testing? 

I wracked my head, trying to think. All those Naruan history books had said that no other Testing sites had ever been recorded in any places other than Narua. But if that was true... Where was Kenoro Steel from? 

Door 2 opened and Lar poked his head out, his blond hair smoothened down neatly, his aquamarine eyes flickering like jewels in the light. "Simon, are you coming in or not?" 

"I'm coming, I'm coming." I dismissed. I wrenched my gaze away from the unknown name on door 1, and walked into room 2. The door shut itself behind me, and I gazed around the room in profound awe. There were four beds, and our packs were placed on one neatly. Lar was jumping up and down on his bed, May was gazing around the room, and another girl, who I assumed was Jada Parker, was unpacking. 

I went over to my bed and started unpacking too, but my head was distracted. Where had Kenoro Steel come from? Was he even Naruan? Was he from the Distant Kingdoms? 

I shook my head. No. That last theory was ridiculous. The Distant Kingdoms didn't exist, they were a fairy tale. Who had ever heard of a world with no magic? Ridiculous. 

I was so distracted that Lar had to snap his fingers in front of my face multiple times to snap me out of my trance. 

"Wuh—Huh?" I blinked as my brother keeled over with laughter. He snickered for a couple more seconds, then said, "Sorry. But you should have seen the look on your face!" 

In response, I smacked him across the back of his head as he was bent over. "Be quiet." 

I shoved my empty pack under the bed, and stood up, my skin prickling and my face just beginning to go red from embarrassment. "I'm going to explore." 

"Have fun." Lar told me. I ignored him and opened the door, closed it, then spun around and collided with someone in the narrow hallway. 


"Oh!" 


I heard someone yelp as I landed painfully on my back end. My head stopped spinning a few moments later, so I could see whoever I had bumped into. I looked up, and saw a boy about my age, except I could see muscle curving underneath his skin as clear as day. He wore a black outfit, but with no sleeves. He had onyx black hair that drifted across the side of his face, and a lock of it curled over his forehead like wind. I didn't recognize him. Then, it hit me. He had come out of room 1. The only boys there were Kai Griffin and... 


Kenoro Steel. 


I bit my tongue. This was Kenoro Steel.

Finally! 

 

I only had to change two words. Turns out that the autofilter system didn't let two certain words through. It's a phrase often used when you're shouting/angry, and means "be quiet." So... For future warning, try to avoid that phrase.

Chapter 6:


Oh, shoot. 


That was my first thought. My second thought came shortly after Kenoro Steel offered me his hand and helped me up. Wait—What? 

"I'm sorry." He apologized to me. I blinked. "It's okay. I should have been watching where I was going." I stuck out my hand. "Simon Walker." 

"Kenoro Steel." He shook my hand, then there was a long, awkward pause as our brains came up with nothing to say. Finally, I broke the uncomfortable silence. "Where are you going?" 

"Just wandering." He shrugged. "You?" 

"Same. Wanna go together?" 

He shrugged again. "Sure. I don't see why not." 

We walked down the hallway, silent. Kenoro had his hands shoved into his pockets, and he moved so silently for someone of his mass. Even though he and I stood at the same height and even though he and I were the same age, I was confident that he would be able to throw me half a sky-length without breaking a sweat. 

I decided to spark a conversation, and turned to him. "Are you from Narua City?" 

For a split second, a new expression flitted across his face, like someone had stabbed him. And suddenly, I was falling into an endless pit of nothingness. 

I opened my eyes to find myself staring underneath a white hood. My heart skipped a beat when I realized I was staring under Daylight's hood. I saw the face of a radiant young woman with golden curls and a pale complexion. She was beautiful. 

I instinctively panicked. My mind was spinning. What was happening? 

Before I could see any more, though, I was plunged back through the pit of nothingness, and I was gasping and gulping down huge breaths, my lungs heaving. Kenoro looked very disturbed. "Are you okay?" 

"I think so." My chest fluttered with unease. I decided against telling Kenoro what had happened, due to the fact that anyone would be annoyed if they learned that someone they hardly even knew had been rooting around in their head, even if it wasn't intentional. 

Kenoro gave me a rock-hard stare, then resumed walking. I followed, though I fell a little behind. How and why had Kenoro seen under Daylight's hood? Why had that memory come up when I had asked him where he was from?

Chapter 8:


That day was pretty boring. Lar and I went around the palace while May and Jada explored Azuron Village. But at the of the day, it suddenly dawned on me that Daylight had said that I would be visiting Zathar Village soon, too. 

Well, I didn't want to. I wanted no ties with the Mythics. Maybe if the Mythics had been taken away to somewhere safer, maybe if the Mythics had been separated from everyone else permanently, then maybe Tourmaline— 


No. The memory was too painful. 


Tourmaline hadn't deserved to go the way she had gone. If it weren't for the Mythics, Tourmaline would be here in Azuron Village with all of the other Mystics. 

"Hey, are you okay?" 

Lar's voice interrupted my thoughts. I blinked. He arched an eyebrow. "You were making that face." 

"What face?" 

"Whenever you think about Tourmaline. You make a face." 

"I do not." 

"Yes, you do." Lar's face softened, and he put a firm hand on my shoulder. "We all miss Tourmaline. What happened to her was... Just plain shocking and unpredictable. No one ever thought that would happen. No one ever expected it. And no one thought that someone like Tourmaline would be targeted. Everyone liked her." 

"I know." I murmured. "I know." 

My hand curled around the edge of my sapphire blue blanket. "I'm going to sleep. Wake me in the morning." 

I whisked the blanket over myself, plopped my head down in the pillow, and succumbed to the gathering darkness. 


I was running. Running from something I couldn't see, hear, or touch. But I knew that something was there. 

With every step, a shadow jumped out of the forest of briars and threatened to engulf me in fear and doubt. I shut my eyes. I couldn't let it get to me. 

Simon... 

I stopped running. Tourmaline? 

A shadow lashed out at me, but it seemed to just vanish. I walked closer to where I had heard Tourmaline's voice. I saw something glimmer through the thorns, and fought even harder. I clawed at the briars, until I felt a soft, warm breeze hit my face. 

 

When Light and Dark begin to clash 

The sky will fall, 

And the land will crash 

When the sun sets on the second moon, 

The final battle will meet its doom. 


The Sapphire Keeper finds their way 

To save the worlds in the darkest of days. 

One will turn on the others and leave 

Once lost in the Grove of Singing Trees 


As the fire burns 

And the ocean turns, 

Truth shall come, 

as shall lies 


Before the storm dies, 

The Sapphire Keeper shall rise 

The last fighters will clash on the brightest night, 

Dark must fall to bring the light. 

 

I paused. The thorns stabbed my face and arms, but I ignored them. Tourmaline's voice wreathed around me. "Simon. Wake up. Follow the sky-fire's trail."

And I accidentally sent in chapter 8 before 7. Curses. I apologize for any confusion. 

 

Chapter 7:


"Simon! Wake up! Wake up!" 


With my eyes still closed, I reached up and slapped someone. "Go away." 

I covered my face with my pillow, and slapped the person again. "Go away." 

I heard a sigh, then heard a creak as someone's weight came off the bed. Then, a hard lump plopped down on my stomach. The air was pushed out of my lungs as Lar wiggled around, driving his back end into my lower torso. I whipped the pillow off my face and tried to wiggle out. "Ack! Lar! Get off!" 

In response, he laid down on me. I tried to get out, but he pinned me down. Even though we were exactly the same age and height, I was average weight and Lar outweighed me by about 10 stone-masses. 

"Argh!" I twisted and turned in every way I could think of, but Lar stayed on top of me. He made a satisfied sort of sound. "First, wake up." 

"I'm up!" I yelled. He jumped off of me, and I inhaled deeply, relishing the air. I then sat up and glared at my brother. "There are more polite ways to wake someone up than sitting on them." 

He shrugged. "Just give me my water bottle." 

"It's over there." I pointed at his top dresser drawer absentmindedly, and to my shock, the entire dresser left the gravitational pull of the ground and began floating. 

A vase slid sideways off the polished wooden dresser, and Lar nearly jumped out of his skin. I'll admit, the look on his face was priceless, but the shock that came from having that dresser just start floating for no apparent reason was... well, shocking. 

I looked at my hand, then back at the dresser. Was I making this happen? 

"Simon... Put the dresser down." Lar ordered. I lowered my hand, and the dresser once more obeyed the force of gravity. I looked at my hands. Yesterday... I had done something in Kenoro's head. I had seen his memories. And just now, I had made that dresser float. My magic just might have been blossoming.
