Ellie crouched behind a rock, her mind whirling.
magic? Her sister had magic??
Today was not her day, she thought.
She had heard the witches come. She had not watched. I must follow Charlotte. Ellie thought. No harm may come to her.
"Witches?" Charlotte asked. She sat down in the nearest seat, her head aching.
"Ohhh right, you're from another world," said Maddie. "I forgot about that. you see... so. Back in the old days, everyone had magic powers. They were sorted elementally. Fire, water, air, and land. But then... someone found a magic gem. Everyone wanted it. War began. Alliances were. Trust was broken. One group of murderers and traitors got their hands on it. They got all the powers... even ones that were unimaginable. However, that magic came at price. It turned them evil, and they formed their own society. They called themselves Witches. Fueled by their actions, everyone else followed their footsteps, and made their own clans. Magic dwindled. Now, from the sorcerers of old, there are the clans made from the powers. I am from the air clan. Toby here is from the fire clan."
"Best clan." Toby pointed out.
"And we have to save everybody!!!!" yelled Maddie.
"YOU SAY!" yelled someone. They all turned around and saw a person standing behind them.
"Sam?" asked Toby. "What are you doing here? Haven't the witches captured everyone?"
Sam shrugged. "I skipped the ceremony. Everyone knows I wouldn't have gotten powers anyway."
"Well, then." said the queen. "I believe you all have a quest to go on."
Oooo. A quest. "A QUEST!" Charlotte yelled. "I love it!"
The queen sighed. "Now, the Witches can steal your magic! They can sense it, so do not do any spells near the terrain of the Witch clan territory. You all need... a spell book, this potion, and this rock... and food and a few tent!"
Charlotte raised an eyebrow. "can't we just-" she waved her hands overdramatically. "Magic it up?"
Maddie snorted. "That does not lie in the regions of and of the clans' powers, so unless you want to turn evil, no."
How disappointing. "Now go!" said the queen.
Everyone except for Sam and Charlotte began flying.
"oh, you can fly, Charlotte." said the queen. "Sam, here are some Miniwings you can put on, I expect you'll be needing them."
Ellie noticed that when one of the people had lifted off, the had dropped the rock. Ellie had no idea how she was going to follow everyone, but when the coast was clear, she ran and she picked up the rock. Little did she know, all their fates rested on that rock.
