I happily chat, while we order, when I notice Flamesong suddenly looks terrified, as if she's seen a ghost. " Flamesong?" I say, giving her a worried look. " Nothing is wrong, is it?" I add.
"I'd like to apply for a job here." a cold voice says, and I turn around to see a navy blue DT. "Go in the kitchens. I just fired the chef. You're the new one now." I snap, then watch him go back to the kitchen. He doesn't exactly strike me as a master chef, but oh well. If he messes up, I'll just fire him too.
" That's it. I'm just going home," I mumble. I stomp home, and look in the mirror, when I jump back, startled. That's not my reflection in the mirror. A beautiful female comb tail stares back at me, grinning. Her glistening white fangs shine in the light, and her scales are a deep, penantrating black, yet they have strange silver gleam. She has a mischevious, evil look in her eyes. Basta, Basta. Are you startled? A voice in my head says. and I look in the mirror to see that whoever is in that mirror is talking too. I narrow my eyes. " What the...?" I say. I know who you are, my friend. I know everything. I glare at the fish in the mirror. " Who are you?" I snarl. Don't be so aggresive... I have a proposition for you. I can't imagine what it must be like for you... your capable of so much more. Come with me, Basta. Come with me, the Queen of Shadows! You were once so glorious, full of victory and strength. Now look at you! Your a little goody two shoes! " ENOUGH!" i yell, and throw a rock at the mirror, and it breaks into shatters. But her face appears in each indivual shatter, and she laughs cruelly. Stop trying to be something your not! I know the taste of blood, the howls of pain are something you need. You enjoy it. Why run from your true self? I stare at her. Did I actually once enjoy the killing? My thoughts reflect from earlier. I miss the action. She's waiting for my answer, I can tell. I shake my head. " I don't know who you are... but I can't go back." I say, glaring at it. " Then allow me to give you a head start!" she screams, and shadow swarms from the shards, and everything goes black.
I run to Cornelious's study, and search through the books. " Queen Naiad... also known as Queen of the Shadows... hmm..." I murmer. I read as my eyes skim the page. For thousands of years, a queen of shadows ruled Waterflash. She was well known for manipulation, and her trickery. When she didn't get her way, she killed, or used her powers to convert them to her side. She was granted an un natural long life. Soon a young hero named Angus and a small army of fish rebelled against her, and she was defeated, though after her great defeat neither Angus nor any of his soldiers were ever heard from again. It was unknown how she was, and soon legend turned to myth, and myth turned to rumors, and Naiad was forgotten. I slam the book shut. If this is true, I must tell Cornleious!
Hi guys, you've probably noticed I'm not on as much. The reason for that is the fact that I'm so much busier than I was last year. Also, I'm in the school play for once. (Squee!) So, I probably will be popping around everyone once in while anyway. But, until then- toodles!
