~ FANTASIA ~
Prologue. . .
Once I broke out of the educational prison also known as school, I immediately turned on my laptop excitedly. Let's just say that school and Rosa Chi do not mix well. Instead, video games and I are a match made in heaven! I would literally die if video games suddenly disappeared. Just the idea makes me extremely scared. Yes, I am proud to be a gamer. With a grin painted on my face, I typed my password at lightning speed while, of course, jumping up and down on my stiff chair. Unbelievably, I'm not randomly excited like I usually am. I know, it's a miracle.
My super awesome friend, Vanessa, bought me the game I was dying to get my hands on. Drum roll and spotlights get ready for my fabulousness. I finally and officially owned 'Fantasia' at last! Quickly, I inserted the blessed video game disc and impatiently tapped my right foot against the cold wooden floor. C'mon, I've been waiting ages to play the hottest fantasy game and apparently the only thing that's stopping me are these irritating lags! Stupid laptop, stupid lags. . .
Lazily, I pulled out my phone from my jeans pocket.
'So, Rosa, you try the new game yet?" Vanessa texted me.
The sounds of tapping was heard as I quickly replied, 'I would be if it wasn't for my stupid laggy laptop. If I wasn't so broke, I would buy myself a brand new laptops...'
'LOL. You really are something, eh?'
I stole a glance at the still loading page. What's taking it so freaking long?! I was about to pull out my midnight blue streaked hair until Fantasia suddenly appeared. Finally! In bold red letters, I skimmed the words, 'Warning: You are about to emerge into a world known as Fantasia. Vampires, werewolves, angels, dark angels, nekos, zombies, shapeshifters, elves, trolls and other creatures exist in the supernatural world. Player, enter at your own risk. Do you wish to proceed?'
Underneath the bold red letters was a green box labelled 'Yes' and a red box labeled 'no'. Hmm... this is a quite unique introduction. As I thought, the arrow hovered over the green box. I really really hope this is not a virus like that other game... A single click sound is heard and the screen transformed into a brilliant yet blinding white screen. What the heck? Driven my instinct, I protected my sensitive emerald green eyes by shielding them with my two hands. First, the lags and now this?! Fridays are supposed to be relaxing and carefree!
Soon, the whole room was eventually enveloped by the strange light coming from my laptop. The only thing I was worried about was saving my precious. Sticks and stones may break my bones, but nothing's gonna hurt my lil' phone. As soon as I safely placed it in my pocket, I shut my eyes tightly and hoped for the best... Cross my fingers, and hope to not die.
Chapter 1: Fantasia
I woke up with a feeling of nausea. White fluffy clouds decorated the plain blue sky. I don't remember walking outside... Instantly, I stood up with wide alert eyes. Where in the world am I?! I rummaged through my jeans pocket and jumped for joy as I found my phone still intact and more importantly in one piece. Now, all I have to do is call someone and... No signal?! I'm pretty sure I'm still somewhere in Canada! Unless I somehow uncounsiously walked to U.S.A.
Weirdly, instead of the usual time, it read 59:8:50:31. I observed the last number count down faster than the other digits. Shoot, my phone mysteriously turned into a time bomb! Okay, who exactly hacked into my phone this time? Wait, could it be, that it's counting down a certain time? So, the last two digits are the seconds, the one before that are the minutes, the one before that are the hours, and the first number are the days. Whoa, did I actually just mentally use math? It's a miracle!
But, what does it mean? As I looked more closely, I realized there were two suns shining in the sky! One was the regular yellow Mr. Sunshine and the other one was bloody red. This is definitely not Earth I'm currently standing on! I suspiciously scanned my surroundings. Familiar evergreen trees surrounded me and grass was being squished by my Nike high tops. I realized that I was in a meadow in a forest in the middle of nowhere. What happened to carefree Fridays, eh? No signal, no Wi-Fi, no nothing! So this is how the cavemen felt... Only inventing fire... There was no sign of humanity! Not a single house or building was here. I sighed heavily as I started to walk into the forest. Wow, this world looks beautiful without pollution or trash.
What did 59 days, 8 hours, 50 minutes, and 31 seconds mean? Does that mean I am going to die in about 59 days?! I'm too young to die! I'm only a sixteen year old that looks older because of height for crying out loud! Suddenly, I heard footsteps crunching the dry leaves on the ground not so far from where I was standing. Instantly, I grabbed a stick and crouched down camouflage style. Yeah, I only got a stick to defend myself. Better than nothing, right?
"What was that bright white hole in the sky? Could it be the Great Pro-" A high pitched yet boyish voice innocently questioned in surprisingly English.
Maybe I'm still on Earth after all and there's a glitch on my phone! "It's impossible. Don't listen to that." A lower and more masculine voice cut off the guy who talked before.
I heard someone sniff and ask, "Guys, do you smell that?"
How can they smell me? Pretty sure I took a shower last night... Someone snickered and replied in a calm low voice, "Yes, I smell you, Layle."
The same person who was sniffing earlier protested, "Hey, I do not smell, Dark!"
Guess the guy who was sniffing is Layle and the guy talking in a lower voice is Dark. Those are quite unique names. It would be hilarious if someone named Light would come! And a slouching panda-looking detective. Death Note reference there for all you anime only leaves the girly guy... No offense, dude whoever you are.
"You may want to wash, Layle." Dark strongly suggested and the sound of footsteps were getting louder.
Hopefully, they won't spot me underneath this bush. Ugh, I'm wearing skinny blue jeans and a red hoodie. I definitely stand out against green grass and my clothes are getting dirty! In normal situations, I wouldn't care much. But these are my favourite jeans and I highly doubt someone would let me borrow their washer in this place.
"But, I just took a bath on the last full moon!" Layle whined and I heard stomping.
Last full moon? Guess this guy doesn't use calenders. But, back at home, the last full moon was last week. Man, that's a long time to go without a shower! No wonder this Dark guy is saying that. I tightly covered my mouth to stop my laughing.
"Layle, you do stink!" The girly guy exclaims, giggling.
"How about your flowery perfume, Patrick?" Layle countered teasingly.
I heard more stomping and (I assumed) Patrick argued, "I naturally smell this way, Layle! At least, I do not stink like trash!"
Unfortunately, I accidentally tripped over a root due to trying to hold my laughter and a loud sound was heard as I fell on the dirty ground.
Well, there goes my once clean hoodie.
"See, I told you I smelled something! But both of you didn't believe me and instead said I smelled stinky!" Layle yelled as I heard the footsteps get closer and closer and closer.
Shoot! Cheese sticks! I retrieved a sharp stick and played dead like a dog. As I shut my emerald green eyes close, I tried to think positively and convince myself that this was all a dream. Finally, the footsteps came to a stop and I heard steady breathing. Great, now they surrounded me.
"What is that?" Layle rudely asked.
Excuse me? I am not a mere object! I am a living (but currently playing dead) human being!
"By the looks of it, not our kind." Dark observed.
As soon as I felt something poke my back, I recoiled and instantly jumped. While holding the stick menacingly in the air, I took a step back.
"Who the hell are you people? Stay away from me! I am not afraid to use this stick!"
Three 'people' stood in front of me. One really short blondie with pointy ears, a black haired guy with matching black feathery angel wings, and another guy with milk chocolate hair and warm dark brown eyes that appeared to be human. I blinked several times to make sure my eyes weren't playing tricks on me. Houston, we have a problem. I'm not in Canada anymore.
