<This part is still dedicated to Parogar, because he is awesome, and also because this is technically the same chapter.>
This part is only very short because it is an addition, or the second half, of the previous part. Sorry, and please tell me, if having this chapter as two parts puts you off.
And as usual, hope you enjoy.
“You’re lying! What does that even mean, anyway?!” I shouted.
I didn’t really get any of what Sophia had said to me, but it sounded wrong. I think she said something about me having royal blood from some country called ‘A lion’. But, the only cool royal family in the entire world is the British one, isn’t it?
“It’s Eliron, for gosh sake,” she said exasperated, whenever I named the country. “And it’s not a country. It’s. A. Planet,” she continued, through gritted teeth.
See what I mean when I say she’s gone crazy?
She tried to tell me that both she and I could use something called ‘instinct’, or what normal people would call magic. She tried to persuade me - to tempt me with her magically charmed words - but my mind was just too strong for her powers.
“I’ve told you before. Instinct isn’t like what you’ve seen in the movies. I cannot charm you using it!”
Of course, I didn’t listen. She was tricking me. Trying to make me look like a fool.
Even as she knew nothing would make me change my mind, she still told me that by having the tattoo on my neck, I was one of the two most special people in the universe. How ridiculous.
Of course, because she had the other tattoo, she was the other most important being. All I said in reply to her was, “You’ve gone mad!” and looked at her as if she had.
Sometimes, like just after my previous outburst of truth, she muttered “This is exactly what I meant when I said ‘don’t freak’…” under her breath, and I would not have a clue of what she meant. Neither did I care. She was still trying to trick me.
I mean, imagine if someone comes up from the street and tells you that there is another planet where people can use magic, and that you can use magic too.
“I’m not lying! It’s the truth. Why would I lie, anyway?” she growled, obviously frustrated at my super strong mind. All I did was tell my self on simple truth. Magic didn’t exist.
Sophie suddenly broke down in an outburst of tears, and I went to comfort her, shocked at her quick change of emotions. But as I put my arm along her back and calmed her, she did not seem sad. She was very angry – as angry as a tomato that had just been cut – or at least the same colour.
She looked at me and screamed in, what I think was, frustration. She brought her hand up in the air to hit something. I drew my head back quickly, poised to dodge any strikes at my face.
Instead, she slammed her clenched hand against the bed and let out another rapid waterfall of tears. A purple light started to emit from her hand and I stared in amazement. She didn’t seem to notice and, once a purple fireball-like object had formed in it, brought her hand quickly up, in despair. In the process, the ball of energy was released, and I watched in awe as it sailed through the air and crashed into the wall. Once the dust and glow was gone, a large hole in the hollow wall was all that was left.
I turned to face Sophia; her face turned pale, and her mouth was in a similar state to mine, mouth wide open, though I expected for different reasons.
“Crap. I… I.. Wasn’t supposed to do that. Erella is gonna kill me!” She murmured, while I understood nothing. She went into another round of crying, but less strong this time – her anger and frustration drained.
Okay. I believed her now. I mean, what else would you call that?
I mouthed the words silently as I waited for her to calm down. Now, it seemed right. It seemed plausible. It was a word nobody would ever really take seriously but me.
Yeah, this chapter has a slightly different approach than the others (more humor - or sarcastic humor, if you wish) but I still like it and I hope you people do too!
I really insist that you take the time to vote, if you like the chapter. I am rapidly losing confidence in my writing... Please comment, whether encouragement or constructive criticism. Even a negative comment is better than nothing right now... :D
