I am trying out a new writing style...so I apologize if this is not my best writting...
Have you ever heard the expression, ignorance is bliss? Whoever said that, you were right. It is. I had never given much thought to the saying before, except to wonder idly who-the-heck said that when taking an English test. Maybe I should have paid more attention. It would have helped me quite a bit.
The Sword of Fire has always had a carrier. From the dawn of the Earth, people have wielded it, protected our world with it…well, not strictly speaking people…
Everyone always said that angels were with us, that they would protect us and guard us. I don't think anyone actually took that statement literally. Oh, sure, it was a nice thought, and it comforted people in times of need and grief, but no one believed it. I know I didn't.
The Sword of Fire has been passed down for generations, it has been kept secret, silently being past from person to person. Before a few years ago, I had never even heard of the sword, and I certainly didn't expect what was going to happen, not even a little bit. You'd think after reading millions of fantasy and sci-fi books I would have put the clues together and figured something out. Wasn't that what the heroines were always doing in the stories? Saving the day with their knowledge and brains?
Well, let's just say I was no Hermione Granger. I was ignorant. Blissfully and wonderfully oblivious to what was right in my face. I was normal. Just a normal sixteen year old trying to make it through high school and figure out what I wanted to do with my life; I was worried about things like if my cell phone was broken, if the boy I liked noticed me, and if my shoes were untied. I was not worried about legendary swords, demons, magic and angels.
Ignorance is indeed bliss children.
Ignorance does not last long though…because when the time is right, the Sword of Fire is passed down, and, to put it mildly, all hell breaks loose.
And I was right in the middle of it, because apparently, I was the wielder of the Sword of Fire, and I had to save the world.
Like I said, ignorance is bliss.
