Hello once again, Readers!! I started two new pages: Aurora’s Journal and Fenn’s Journal. It’s just an experiment for now, but basically I want a spot for them to write out their thoughts for the readers of the trilogy to see. For now it will go chapter by chapter starting from the beginning. My goal is for them to write one entry a week. It’s not going to have anything to do with my normal posts though which I should be getting back into the swing of now that NaNo is over.
Any who…I hope you enjoy! And if not, just hang in there, other posts are to come!
My name is Aurora Megalos.
I can’t believe I’m doing this right now.I guess I’m supposed to tell you everything. At least that’s what Fenn says I’m supposed to do. He bought you for me yesterday. He has one of his own and told me he thinks it would do me some good to write out my feelings. Maybe he’s right. Lately everything has been so crazy. I keep having these strange dreams about a man with glowing blue eyes. I don’t know what it means. Maybe I’ve watched too many sci-fi movies.
But I can’t seem to let go of the thought that maybe there’s more to it. This morning, when we were on our way to work, there was this guy at the bus stop that I haven’t seen in town before. After getting in my usual tiff with the bus driver, the guy dropped an amulet. I couldn’t stop myself. I went for it. When I touched the amulet, the dreams that I have so often, surfaced. I saw the glowing blue eyes and the clearing. That has to mean something right?
But what’s even stranger is the fact that my eyes changed color. They turned blood-red. I mean, how does that happen? I felt this surge of power when I touched the amulet. It was like something was waking inside of me. Something that I have always passed off as being crazy. I can’t keep lying to myself though. How else do I explain my anger issues that result in fires erupting around me? It’s like a horrible version of Carrie.
Needless to say, Fenn freaked out. I don’t blame him either. I can’t name how many times he’s had to come to my rescue. I won’t admit it to him, but he’s been the only one in my life who has kept me grounded. I trust him. Sometimes I wonder if it can be more than that, but we’ve been friends for so long, it’s hard to imagine potentially ruining that. I don’t trust myself enough to risk it.
Anyway, the guy took the amulet before I had a chance to figure out what was going on. He noticed my eyes and said the bus was no place for my change. What was he talking about? It scares me to think that everything I had believed was pure crazy about myself, might actually be true. What if I am something more than just a girl with issues? I don’t know. I don’t think I’m going to have a chance to find out. The guy got off the bus before I could make any sense of the situation. But what’s even crazier is that he did something weird to the passengers. I think he made them forget what had happened…using what I assume is some sort of magic that came out of his hands. Fenn saw it too, but he didn’t say anything about it. Figures.
I know…it all sounds ridiculous. If anybody ever found this, they’d probably think I’m a nut. Believe me, I’ve replayed this over and over again in my mind, praying that this was all just a bad dream. But if I am to be completely honest with you (which is what Fenn said I should do), then I have to admit that I don’t think one single part of it is ridiculous. I felt what was inside of me. Pure power. The kind that can change the world. I just wouldn’t be caught dead admitting that out loud. Especially not to Fenn. He wants me to be normal. Heck, I want to be normal.
Oh well…I guess I’ll never know. But at least I got it out onto paper. I actually feel good about this. Fenn has a knack for knowing just what I need.
I have to go back to work now. My breaks up.
