"Eclipsa!!" I shouted as I ran towards her castle, my hair hitting me in the face, I really should tie it in a bun. My legs felt wobbly, but I managed to keep running.
The past year had been a mess. Stupid confessions, awkward encounters... Basically, a lot happened, and I was getting tired of pretty much everything related to Mewni, and now Eclipsa's going to make things even complicated for me!
"Something's terribly wrong!" I shouted as I reached the main doors, which were open as usual. I ignored the puzzled monsters who were guarding the entrance and ran inside.
Eclipsa walked out of the throne room. She was dressed in her usual long dark purple gown embodied with light purple crescents. She was wearing her large sun hat instead of her crown, typical Eclipsa. "What's the matter sweetie?" she asked in a usual peppy tone.
"Mom's saying you're going to hand over the kingdom to me!" I almost screamed. My heart was pounding so hard, it felt as if it'd burst any moment.
"Well," Eclipsa smiled amiably, " I don't see anything wrong about that." She smiled as she adjusted her poofy teal hair, which had a few grey strands peeking out here and there.
"So you really are going to hand it over to me!" I gasped.
"I think you're capable of ruling a kingdom," Eclipsa said plainly.
Rule a kingdom? Me? The sixteen-year-old, who barely has any magical abilities? The trouble maker who can't even use the wand! She must be joking!
"You don't have to worry about it," Eclipsa broke into my thoughts, "Sweetie, I might not always make the best decisions, but I think you're -"
"Queen Eclipsa!" I cut in, my face grew hot and I felt a lump in my throat. "Meteora will be a better queen than me...I-I don't want to be queen." I clenched up my hands trying to retain the anger that was rising inside of me.
Everyone was expecting so much from me...first mom and dad, and now Eclipsa. Becoming queen wasn't really my only problem right now. I had a lot to deal with....
"Aww sweetie, I didn't expect you to be so upset about it." Eclipsa said placing a reassuring hand on my shoulder, "is there something else troubling you?" Her greyish-purple eyes locked with mine, making it impossible for me to lie.
"No..." I managed to mutter out, as my eyes grew teary.
Mom and dad are really nice and understanding, but talking with Eclipsa felt way easier...and I always tend to vent out my problems to her.
"It's just I don't-"
A strange rumbling sound made me stop halfway, eerie music started playing somewhere nearby. A gush of cold wind blew right past me, making my whole body shiver.
I glanced at Eclipsa, the color had quickly drained from her face. She opened her mouth to say something, but nothing came out. I've never seen Eclipsa in such a state before.
"Eclipsa, what's that music? What's going on?" I asked as I took her hand, even though she was wearing purple gloves, I could feel that her hands were trembling.
Instead of replying she quickly withdrew her hand from me and took off her glove; revealing the dark purple marking on it. A strange bluish green ring with a shining white stone glistened on her index finger.
A tingle ran up my spine because I recognized that ring. "Is that the 'Ring of Time?"Eclipsa nodded as she quickly removed the ring and handed it to me.
"I don't want it..." I said, pushing it back towards her because I clearly knew that ring was a symbol of dark magic and it only brought misfortune. " You shouldn't be using it either..."
Before I could say anything else, the eerie music grew louder, and a dark shadow started to engulf our surrounding. She shadows almost look as if they were, alive."I'm sorry for putting you in such trouble my dear, but I don't have a choice. You're the only one who can fix the timeline." Eclipsa said as she slid the ring onto my index finger, "I wish I could explain more, but time is clearly against us. Remember the magic of this ring will work for two days."
Just as she finished the last sentence, the dark shadows completely engulfed us and the eerie music got louder and louder. Everything had turned pitch black.
"Queen Eclipsa!" I screamed, but I couldn't even hear my own voice, the music was too loud. I tried to run, using my hands as a shield against whatever obstacle was in front of me, but I found myself floating, floating in a pitch black space.
What was Eclipsa talking about? Fix the timeline, that doesn't make any sense? What on Mewni is going on?
I've been to the underworld, dangerous dungeons, crowded shopping malls, and even deep-sea trenches, but I've never been so scared in my life! My whole body felt numb, and I could feel the beads of sweat pouring down my forehead. My heart was hammering against my chest.
The eerie music got even louder, and I clasped my hands over my ears to prevent my eardrums from exploding. But the noise was still unbearable, and the eerie tone of the music was making me feel dizzy. It sounded like a strange lullaby, a lullaby want to put you to an eternal sleep...
I tried to focus my mind on the problem at hand, but right now everything felt like a problem!
I tried to use a simple teleportation spell, but failed miserably, which was the only thing that didn't surprise me today.
My eyelids were getting heavier by the second, I tried my best to stay awake, I could almost hear a female voice, humming to the eerie music, but soon the music overpowered my will and I drifted off to sleep...
