"Why did that
happen?" As if expecting my question he immediately
"This school is full of power
strengthening spells and charms. This helps
someone to achieve their full power and learn to control their own
strength. Mainly, its to help the students." I swallow,
looking at the ground, lost in thought.
"What if it hurts some of the students instead?" I ask
quietly. He slows his pace, then stops. I turn to look at him,
surprised. He watches me with those all-knowing eyes and sighs.
"I have to go." He says suddenly. I feel my shoulders
drop but quickly collect myself.
"Ok, see ya." I wave and turn around to find my way back
to my room. But I was chewing my lip again. I actually revealed
something to him and all he can says is ‘I have to go.’
Stupid Typical man.
I don’t see Ashley or any of her friends, school was almost
over, and I didn’t want to go to the end of class. So in the
common room I make myself a sandwich (for later), grab a drink, and
head to my room to watch TV.
Before I go to bed that night I sigh, and sit on its edge. I
fidget, then sigh again. I had never prayed before, but I was
nervous about class tomorrow. Ok, so my first day was over, but I
wasn’t there for most of it and I had a weird feeling about
I didn’t want to kneel, it felt stupid. I didn’t know
who to pray to. This god they spoke of here, Zin, seemed like a

‘powers stronger than me…’ No.
‘The almighty one…’ No.
‘The holy spirit…’ No…but there was
something there. Then suddenly it sprang to my mind.
‘To all pure spirits…’ It felt odd against my
tongue but I said it anyway.
"To all pure spirits, please help me to get through tomorrow.
Protect me, just for that day and I will be thankful’
When I was saying it, it felt good, but after wards I sat there
feeling stupid, so I just went to sleep. I was not going to pray
The next day I had Luken first class, and I didn’t get lost,
and I wasn’t late, so I was feeling pretty good all around.
When Luken walked in I noticed the class hushed noticeably and I
look around. All of the girls had a dreamy look on their face and
all the guys sat up straighter in obvious respect. I commit that to
memory, young as Luken was, he was respected greatly around here. I
wondered why, he wasn’t that special.
But as he walks in, another man follows him. I hadn’t seen
him before, but the other students seemed to recognize, and respect
him, too. I look him over.He was strong, and I mean he had some
serious muscle going on. His face was full of too sharp angles and
his hair had a crew cut. But he smiled as he came in, looking
rather relaxed. Luken looked small and weak in comparison to this
