A WHOLE NEW WORLD
People say life is what you make it, that you are your own person and control your own destiny. Those people don't know me and my life. From the time I was able to understand others have controlled my life , timetabling ever little detail down to the minute the only alone time I got was when I was asleep. Every aspect runs to their plan. They never care for what I wanted to do, guards trained to protect me with their life when I want to protect myself. I hated the thought of others laying down their lives for me when I was powerless and helpless. Sometimes I can't until I am queen and I can finally tell them to go away and let me live my life. But everyone thinks I am too young to make my own choice. I am 17 years old (by the human reckoning) for god's sake and being raised without parents has made me grow-up faster than most. It made me better understand the responsibility and the weight of the crown I was being given being the last female in the Markreason line. But after this year I will be finally see as the adult I feel I am, because I am making the journey into the realm of humans the scared realm. This experience is a rite of passage for me and all the other young elves.
I was brought out of the deeps of my mind by a cold, and emotionless voice calling my name "High Princess Alana". I jumped a little and turned around to face the source of the voice. It belonged to Donavain my brother second in comrade and friend who was standing behind me with his arm cross over his broad chest. Donavain was older than me at 25 year of age. He was tall than most, he towered over me at I figure he was 200cm in height. He had short charcoal colored hair that barely reached his forehead. Cold, piercing blue-grey eyes that bore into your very soul seek answers. A short hooked nose that was slightly out of place from being broken one too many times. His mouth was forever drawn into a flat, hard straight line." Yes Donavain what can I do for you?" I asked knowing my brother had probably sent him here to escort me to meet him at the portal. As I guessed he said "Prince Nikolai is growing impatient and what me to escort you to him" Donavain answered , before walking over to stand by the door waiting for me to join him hand resting just above his sword poised in case trouble arose." Just give a minute "I said, he remained a unmoved from his stance but inclined his head slightly signalling that he had heard me. I cased one last long look in the direction of Flarona my kingdom, my people and my home for it would a year before I sent sights on her fair shores again. Before again turning pick up my small bag with Donavain as my shadow.
It was early morning here in Citanaila capital of Avalon; it was crisp and quite that only noise being the slight rustling of leaves to the morning breeze. The flags of the 7 nations of elves Flarona, Serenata, Quotar, Aquarise, Citanaila, Garth Groyne and Wilder danced in tune with the wind. Six of our nations have different views and abilities. Citanaila was a nation for all elves it was a place of peace a multicultural place where everyone was accepted and welcome. No matter their background, views or the actions of the past. Avalon was run by Midearen. Midearen is the oldest elves ever know at 550 years of age. No word can explain how important he is to all elves. He has a great understanding of the past and future, he controls and keeps he records of our culture and he controls the only opening to other realms. The portal itself was contained in Midearen garden which it's self was an opus to the other realms within it walls it contain plants and animals lost to the other realm. Only few of the extinct species actual appear here Midearen believes that the many appear into other realms that we don't have access to. The portal was built into a water feature, the pool of water it sat was suspended, frozen in place you can gets walk across it.
Standing in front of the portal was Donavain friend and my twin brother Prince Nikolai Markreason. Nik was shorter than Donavain standing at around 175cm, but he was more strong built his arm cover in lean, hard muscles. He had short chocolate colored hair that was just fell into his eyes, which where forest green and full of life. Nik had a strong jaw, which paired well with his powerful sculpted features that could have chiseled out of marble. He was dress similar into me in the school uniform we had been proved. He nodded to Donavain, dismissing him to join the guards he had no doubt had hidden the garden and the surrounding area. Tension radiated of my brother like heat radiates of a fire. This was one year he was not looking forward to; he felt the weight of our world on his shoulders to keep me safe in addition to his own. "Stop worrying Nik, nothing going to happen we be okay" I said, try to get him out of his guard role. "That's my job" he joked before turn serious again "it not like our enemies don't know were going they could use is as a chance to attack you or the kingdom"." I don't think that the kingdom is in much danger, I trust you would instruct Donavain and the guard how to handle the situation" I said "and I have you, Ronan and Elza to watching out for me. This is why you should train me to fight so you don't have to worry as much". Nik just look frustrated because this was an old argument" I said it once and I say it again the battlefield is not place for you Alana". I went to open my mouth again to but he cut me off "I will not start this with you again the answer no" he said "come on Alana it time to go…." His voice dropped of suddenly as he saw two people walk around the edge of the garden one old and the other younger close to own age. Nik bowed his head in respect to Midearen before turning and jumping though the portal not acknowledging the other figure. I repeat his action and took a closer look at the other elven a figure with blonde hair and dressed in black insanely know who it was. I silently hoped Nik didn't get a good look at who it was or he would he liveried. He waved to me and sent me a message though own link "see you soon Alana" which was the last thing I heard before the darkness of the portal over took me.
It was impossible to measure the length of time you are traveling for all we know we could appear yesterday or even a hundred years in the future. There was no way of knowing unless you were Ernestine. The world out portal opened up to a clearing full of tree stumps that used to form a grand forest. The clearing was still apart my brother who was slowly pacing, awaiting my arrival. However now he appeared more human than elven. His eyes now appeared to lie in a straight line and his ears were rounded. " stop worrying Nik" I thought though our link , he just ignored my comment and held his hand out taking the bag that rested on my shoulder before leading the way to our families house. Our families house was built like the ones that government officials in this world live in , it was built in a 18th century country house. The house itself was built out of white marble stone and was three stories. The house had about 10 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, and some room with no apparent use at all except to display paintings. The front of the house had large bay windows the open to the world, columns built in the style of those found in 3rd century Greece monuments and a large wooden double door.
Ronan wasn't home when we got to our new home , but his wife for all intensive purses Elza made us breakfast an drove as to the place humans called school but it was more like a prison. The school surrounded by high grey brick walls that encased the entire grounds, the school itself was built in the same grey bricks and contained several small building and a gym plus oval. The ladies at the office look up at our entrance. She was in her late forties with dry brown hair to hide the grey, dull blue-grey eyes and a heavy powered face. "How can I help you two today" she said in a cheery voice, while taking a closer look at us "Your new here, I am guessing your Ronan Gattuso siblings". Nikolai nodded and said "that's correct, I am Nikolai and this is my sister Alana Markreason" in his casual, but polite tone. "Right your brother has already enrolled you just check your subjects for me "she said hand as sheets of paper with your timetables on them before adding "I just hope you aren't as much trouble as your brother he gave the teachers and Ronan a lot of trouble when he was here". I just nodded unsure how to answer her and glanced down at my timetable for today

Period 3- History room 216, R.G

And my other three subjects where maths, science, P.E and health. Nikolai timetable was the same until period five where he had P.E and his other subjects were maths, science and health as well but were at different times. "This correct" I said, in answer to her original question. "Same here "Nik said agreeing with me. "Okay well ever is in order I just have to brother to sign a few things, but I'll go get vice principal Tan to show you around, welcome to Wood Dale Private School.
