(Sequel to :
Power drew from vanity,controlled by hands of evil Should it go wild,will make everything scather
Balance will be distrupted with the sealing pieces
It will bring chaos,And only death and demise
The sky will fall, The ground and waters will be diseased
Just as the arcane knowledge many praise.
Fire will go cold, ice will go warm.
The living will be dead,and the dead will live once more.
For the light will go back,the stars stop shining.
the sun is dead cold,the moon is black too.
The world is dark.
This prophecy couldn't let her sleep, when her dream had its sweetest state, the scene with the phoenix muthering the words of the poem were striking up in her subconcious, jerking the girl out of her slumber and putting her into an unpleasant state.
The case had been solved, Libald was put in prison for 20 years.Rachel could still feel anger when she thought about the man, being a light mage and commiting terrible crimes for selfish purposes is a federal offense."Well, I hope at least the hoes in the prison will like his dress...", she thought.
Rachel was happy to see that Tresh recovered, when she was invited to the party, she saw it with her own two eyes: the phoenix had done a wonderful job,except when he gave the prophecy, the pyromancer thought she could do well without SLEEPLESS NIGHTS.The party was thrown by... somebody named Kevinar Reyese, "Isn't he the same guy Libald talked about when he threw a tantrum?", she asked herself in her mind.Anyway, she was surpised that Castellus himself decided that he deserved a party too, "Fun fact:This old man knows to party better than all my classmates combined."
She chose not to drink, though, the nightmares had already made sleeping hard for her, in the morning she's possibly more tired than the momment she went to sleep, drinking would only make it worse.Rachel didn't hesitate to eat... and shoot fireworks into the sky.
She had to ask herself, though. "What now?",Rachel doubted she could make it back to Earth soon, so it was a 1 million gold question what she would do next, she grasped a better concept of how things work here, but it wasn't enough, not even close enough, Rachel couldn't even find Elliot, or get a clue about his whereabouts.All without his memories, the light mage was exposed to all the odds of this foul world, more precisely, was exposed for his father's pursuit to kill all the guardians of the medalions, needed to unlock the forbbiden knowledge of Earth. Great summary, right? Too bad Rachel had been introverted and kept that to herself, and she wouldn't change her mind about this anytime soon.
Well, after all, They didn't know where Elliot is, neither did Rachel, her only clue, as much as it hated the fact, was the prophecy let by the phoenix, which obviously hadn't made much sense for the 16 year-old.
But still... what should Rachel do?
Her only idea was to remain where she was, the girl really hated to admit it, but she wouldn't be able to stand her ground against her father, not a bit. She needed to become more powerful. "Anyways, Rachel, back to pretending-you're-a-fully-functional-being-but-you-know-well-you-are-actually-a-menthal-hot-mess."
She was at the party, the wierdest thing happened to her : a woman, possibly in her 30's, approached her. She had brown hair and red eyes, she wore a traditional pyromancer dress, her staff always with her.She must have been a really big figure, otherwhise, why would she dress that fancy?"I guess over-dressing is a thing around here...", Rachel thought.The woman approached Rachel, it was a bit awkward.Her steps were silent, and it was almost like she wanted Rachel. "I pressume you must be Rachel Amber..", the woman said, loudly enough so everybody near her could hear it.Rachle nodded, feeling so awkward, who was that witch and from where had she known her name?She couldn't remind telling it to anyone other than the people ,she was 100% sure those people didn't tell the woman anything about her. "I just couldn't resist the temptation of coming and meeting you, I've been told you pulled off a phoenix to break the bond between the reckless light mage and poor Tresh, remarkable,nontheless.", the woman said, sitting down near Rachel.The witch looked her in the eyes, what did she want?Possibly she wanted Rachel to teach it to her.... which she was unable to because the phoenix should want to come to you, not the other way around.
Rachel stood next to her motionlessly, starring at her, "Who the hell told you that?", she thought. "News travel fast, dear,I for one, heard it from Castellus himself.And, assuming you don't have any OTHER businesses to attend, I would like you to attend my class instead . I teach Fire magic at the academy, and I think you could just fit in the many vacant positions I have in my... let's says honors class. Of course, you'd be getting your own dorm, and you could also attend other classes, too, if you wanted."
Castellus was waving in the distance, possibly way too "stoned" by the party to do anything else than that.
Truth is, the woman was really persuasive, but she didn't come off as evil, possibly she was just a really ambitious teacher, sick of some unpleasant details about her class.Rachel was stunned, she came off as a female Gandalf for summoning a phoenix. She thought it through.
"That feels like something useful. I accept. What's your name,though?", she asked with a smile on her face, maybe that was the solution she had to find for now.
She was looking around the campus, finally finding the fire school.It looked to be really crowded... It was almost like everybody wanted to be a fire mage, it was strange, yet really exciting.The teacher's name was Alan Nightshade,"Wierd name for a pyromancer, perhaps she's married.". She was wondering where she would be meeting familiar faces.
