It was another dark, summer night in Erde, an earth nation town. A phew flowers that have fallen were accompanied by the wind to dance on the pedestrian stoned street, passing by the library. Inside there was warm light coming from a phew lamps. A girl could have been see in this same library every night.As a matter of fact, you could see her there almost all the time. Not only because she liked reading but because she lived there. This girl was Kaltaine. Like always, she was in her armchair reading one of her favorite books.
She tried to concentrate on it but she just couldn’t. She finished by giving up and putting it down. A strand of her honey hair fell from her low ponytail and gently caressed the side of her face. She started walking and her brown eyes were observing every inch of the building. She was looking for somebody. The librarian, a middle-aged woman named Josie. She left without a message a few days ago and still hasn't returned. Kaltaine already went to the police station but they told her that she shouldn’t be worrying. Don’t worry. How could I not worry! She told herself. After a few long minutes she tried to calm herself down. Maybe...maybe I am overthinking. Of course, she was, but nobody could really blame her... Not after what happened to her last year... I’m definitely just overthinking. But she didn’t believe this herself. She started sweating and breathing quicker. Her heart was pulsing so quickly that she could hear it. She started squeezing her necklace, the star sides was pricking her fingers. The steps of her walk were precise and her body was tense. She took a deep breath. She knew that everything was going to be ok. That she is safe, nothing was wrong, but for some reason, she couldn’t believe it. She was expecting something bad to happen...
Vjjjjj... It’s, it’s just the wind. Yeah, the wind. Vjjj... I, I can barely hear it, it’s nothing. Just... nothing. She was scared. Crac... She blanched. Ok...Maybe, maybe...She was out of ideas. What lie could she tell herself now.? She started to carefully walk on the tip of her toes and without making a sound, armed with nothing else but her book. She had the strange feeling that someone was breathing in her nape. Her hand started to tremble and she felt fear wrapped around her heart. Out of nowhere she turned around just in time to see a boy with green eyes feet touch the floor in front of her after jumping from the second floor . Her heartfelt like stoping and she freezes. The boy approached her and tried to put his hand on her shoulder. Just before he could, she hit him with her book.
„Ow! That hurts, we don’t want to harm you. Just-”
You could see the fear in her eyes like you could see the fear in a baby deer who was about to be eaten by a wolf. Another boy leaves the shadow behind him as he approaches her and his hand squeeze the handle of a sharp dagger. She threw another book that was nearby at him out fear from seeing the weapon. It was useless as the boy took the light of a lamp, turned it into a lasso, and caught it. She froze. Magic! They, they have magic and weapons? She hear story’s about sorcery but had never seen it. She ran between the bookcases. Books. That’s, that’s my best shot to take down two guys with, with magic! She couldn’t believe what she just saw. It was scary enough before but now they had magic. What do they want with me? What did I do wrong? She randomly picked books and threw them in the hope to hit them. If only she could’ve reached the door and run away. The sun caster caught the books one by one with his lasso. Her efforts were in vain. She soon realized she had ran through was a dead end.
„Ok, that’s enough I’m not wasting my time anymore”, said the caster. The lasso caught Kaltaine’s left-hand which was about to throw another book.
„What do you want? ”
The green-eyed boy approached and said:
„We don’t want to hurt you. Just come with us”
. Come with you? I don’t think so. She grabbed a book with her right hand and threw it. She missed her throw and the caster used this opportunity to knock her off using another light. Silence...Kaltaine only heard some faible voices that seemed to be far away but they disapeared after a few seconds...
