Thank you all for still reading. I'll actually be updating this one pretty often, and I realized that in the prologue and first chapter, my character is dieing! And to put your mind at ease, here's what happened to Lilia:
"Thanks for the cookie, Mrs. Marka!"
"You're welcome, Lilia. Gee, it really is coming down out there."
"Yeah. I wonder where Ophelia is?"
There you have it! Lilia is eating cookies, while here sister is getting zapped by Lightning! Just don't tell Ophelia... well, here's the story!
Where was my body? Where was Windmill Valley, or the storm, or, or, anything? But especially my body. Where the heck was it? I was... nowhere. This... place was like glass. On glass. On glass. And it just seemed to keep doing that forever.
There was nothing. No color, or scenery, or trees, or bushes.
I was freaking out when I realized something. My clothes had changed. They were no longer ragged jeans, or a paled red and blue swirly shirt. It was a majestic robe, that seemed to be made of wind. Like everything else It was transparent, but thank God I was as well.
As I was on the brink of insanity, when movement caught my eye. To my delight, it was a man, and... yes! He was wearing an orange monk-robe thingy-ma-bob. I'll call him Mr. non-bald monk. Nah, I'll just call him Phil.
"Hello Ophelia," 'Phil' said. "I see your time has come."
"Oh, crap!" I exclaimed. "I'm not dead, Phil, right?"
"No, you're not," He soothed, his voice soft and gentle. "And why do you think my name is Phil?"
"Well, then what is your name?"
"You're avoiding the question, and I don't have a name."
"Alright, Phil it is then! Now, why am I here, where is here, and where's my body?"
"Fine, then. I guess I am Phil. To start, you are in the spirits domain. Humans come here when they become spirits, one who commands Wind, Rain, et cetera. Your body is back down on earth, see?" He seemed to just grab nothingness, and pull it into a window looking down upon my lifeless body. Though I, um, my body,er, it was breathing, like I decided to take a nap in the middle of the woods. "Now, I have a question for you. What time do you think you got struck by lightning?"
This question had nothing to do with our conversation, but I'll still answer it. "Uh, I guess around 2:10," I answered, a questioning glimmer in my eye.
"2:13, actually," He said in a superior sounding tone. "Now watch here. It is 2:12 in this time-zone." He again did the pull on air to make a window thing, revealing a boy about sixteen or seventeen, the same age as me, running through a storm. "now in about thirty seconds, this boy will have the same fate as you. But instead of becoming a spirit, he will become Wind, and you will be his commander." I watched and waited as the boy ran on, his clothes getting soaked by the pouring rain.
But finally the thirty seconds was over.
Lightning struck him, and he sparked like crazy. His body slumped to the ground, and I could swear I saw his soul float upward and then vanished instantly.
"Wha-what happened?" I asked frantically. "If he's turning into Wind, where is he?"
"Calm yourself, Ophelia. He is in a different part of this realm, where he will stay till needed back on earth. Now, as his commander,you'll need to know how to, well, command. When you want to summon Wind, just call his name, and when you want him to stop, just tell him to calm himself. But take notice that when you command Wind, he may not respond. As you get better at commanding him he will respond better. Also notice that you can command Wind from indoors by putting both your hands on a wall that makes up the perimeter of the building, and speaking the command. Now it is time for you to return to your body on earth."
"Wait! If I'm just commanding Wind, then why did he have to turn into Wind?"
"I will explain that later, but you need to return to your body. Until next time." He raised his hand and placed it on my forehead, and in a flash, I was back in my body.
Thank you for continuing to read. Please leave a reveiw on every chapter from now on so I can see who's still reading. You can just keep saying 'good' each chapter. Thanks so much!
