Day 2

I woke up and I felt like I was being watched. Harry wasn’t in the room, I was alone-I think. Then I heard some one lean on the door on the door. Luckily I was clothed when I saw Hazel walk in. “After school today come to my dorm room. If you want your brother to know about you and what you have to do, you can, but he will be in danger if he travels with you.” I was confused. “Travel? what are you talking about?” I asked quickly. “You’ll find out tonight, our first class is starting, we ought to go.”

When the horn bird caws, you have to get to your class, three minutes later, it caws again. If you don’t make it by the second caw, you are late to class and have to spar a teacher (They are usually good). Hazel and I made it on time and Jack didn’t. He is the best at sparring and since the teacher knew that he asked if anybody would like to spar while he was warming up. Harry threw himself up and said “ME!” Harry ran at Jack, his wooden sword out. Harry ran at Jack full speed. Jack retaliated, he stepped to the side tripping Harry and pointed his sword at his back. “You are horrible. Who’s next before I beat Mr. Lee?” Before I could stand, Hazel shot up like a werewolf. “I would like to duel.” she politely said. “Wow a girl, she’s so good.” Jack said sarcastically. “Let’s go.” Hazel said. Jack suddenly took the offensive, he ran a Hazel, ready to raise his giant wooden axe down. Next thing you know Hazel easily dodged if with gracefulness, then Hazel dashed and she was behind Jack. Jack fell to the ground. WHAT?! I thought. How? Why? When? Where? Jack started howling in pain. Whoa! Amazing! After that commotion we started weapon battles. Many boys thought Hazel was a fluke, so they challenged her. All of those boys’ weapons  got destroyed in battle. I sparred against a friend of mine, Joey. My preferred weapon is a sword. Joey was using a double bladed staff. I swung with stealth and speed but Joey avoided me, barely. He took a shot at me, I deflected it with my sword. His arm was up in the air from the deflection I moved in for the finisher, suddenly Joey kicked me in the face.I was stunned and I was about to be finished of when something took over my conscience. I went crazy I dodged with a back Filippa and moved in for the final blow. I punched Joey in the face as hard as I could, he on the ground, defeated. “What the chiz drake? Not so hard. Gosh!” I told him I was sorry, and that I didn’t mean it. Joey ignored me for the rest of the class. I told Harry and Hazel what had happened. They said they’d help as much as they could to find out what happened.

Next we had pet class, this is my favorite part. It was time to train my griffin. Hazel was new so she got to pick a pet. She chose a baby roc (not a rock but a roc), a giant eagle that when full sized it can kill and eat elephants. This one was just hatched, but it was still about five feet tall and had a twenty foot wing span. Using her magic, Hazel easily trained her roc, while almost everyone else had a much harder time. Hazel’s roc was named Eero, Harry’s chimera is named Tartarus, and my griffin is named Vantos. All period we had to try to ride are pets, teach them to hunt, attack, sit, and play dead. It was tough, real tough. Next I will go to Hazel’s room like she asked me too.

As I walked into Hazels room with Harry I noticed that Eero was in their too, in a very deep sleep. “So, what did you want us to come for?” we asked. “You may not believe me, but what I am about to tell you is true. I am an elf, that is why I am powerful in magic and weaponry. you two will have to go on a mission with me to defeat a vampire king.” “Yeah right, prove it.” demanded  Harry. As she turned into her elven form (that was even more attractive) with really long blond hair and clothes from animal skins and plants Hazel said “Crimson was a powerful young elf who loved to whet his stones for hunting and seemed very timorous. But inside, he was a evil elf, ravenous for power. He had a pure heart, it was pure evil. All he wanted was more power, to conquer everything, he destroyed his tribe. He felt no remorse after slaying his tribe. He took over other places and made speeches about power and you had to give him an ovation or you die. Once a creature wanted to meet him at a rendezvous and he didn’t know he had xenophobia, because of this, the beast got slaughtered. Soon Crimson made a castle on a promontory with a great sea view. He even made people do libation for him. He was about to rule and destroy all when a vampire warrior appeared and killed him with his legendary death sword that he had stolen from a great dragon that he didn’t deserve to wield. Even though he didn’t deserve it he looked out into the panoramic ocean view and said “I am the Vampire King!” and that is how the Vampire King came. But then he was weak, and now he is powerful, more powerful than Crimson ever was, and he still has that sword too. He will be hard to beat!” and then she sent an image of everything that happened to me, in my mind with her magic. I was shocked. I stumbled out of her room and then I fainted.
