Chapter 1: The Secret

Gemini Valor was walking through the crowds outside of Marcus Junior High, a school in the small, unknown town of Whispering Falls that was full of people who were from magical families. It was the first day of the school year. Gemini was now in the eighth grade. If she survived this year the worst part of school (the teasing part) would be over. Her black hair shimmered in the sunlight. She was scanning the crowd for her friends. She was tall enough to see over everyone's heads about 5 feet 9 inches.
Aquarius McDagger and Aries Averet were looking for Gemini. Aries was only a bit shorter than Gemini and Aquarius. At last Gemini's green eyes met Aries brown ones. "She's over there," said Aries.
Aquarius' blue eyes looked in the direction Aries was pointing. Aquarius waved Gemini over.
Gemini spotted her friends and smiled. Aquarius had her blonde hair pulled back in a ponytail while Aries' brown hair was worn down. Gemini walked over to her friends and they started comparing what color they where in. Depending on how the school's computer shuffled up the names you could end up in three different colors, red, blue, or green. All three girls were in blue. The three had not only shared school experiences but they also shared a secret. They were 3 of the 12 Zodiac Protectors. This secret formed a bond between the three. Each had her own power. Gemini had the power to read minds and orb in to peoples' thoughts. Aquarius could control sunlight and water with her emotions. If she was sad it would rain, if she was happy it would be sunny. Aries had the power of telekinesis and astral projection.
Gemini, Aquarius, and Aries were the first ones in the building. They went to the place that they were told to go to in their letters. There the color teachers told them which teacher was their first hour teacher. All three girls were in Mrs. Batson's first hour. In their first hour was a boy named Leo Macintosh. Gemini had a huge crush on him.
Leo was also a Zodiac Protector. When Gemini searched his mind with her power she not only found that he controlled fire and could turn invisible, she found that he liked her, too. She was ecstatic.
