“She is here amongst us, but she is not alone,” one of the pixie dust angels told the queen of the woods.

“And?” the queen demanded.

“She is with some boy. Both look strange, if you ask me.”

“Strange, how?” the queen asked.

“Strange. You know they don’t look as we do.”

“How do they look?” The queen turned and looked at the pixie angel with her purple eye that sat in the middle of her forehead.

“I don’t know. They have things like the little people in Vanduesa.”

“What things might you be referring to?” the queen’s voice rose impatiently.

“You know those things that the little people get around with.”

The queen laughed, revealing yellowing teeth. “Oh, the things the little people in Vanduesa refer to as legs.”

“That’s it.” The pixie angel did an excited flip, and then nodded her head.”

Trisha North
“This is light.” He tightened his fist and then quickly opened his fingers releasing a magical burst of flame from his right hand. Swirling around his palms in different directions he caused the scarlet blaze to dance in thin air before he firmly clutched it and caused it to disappear, ”Light is the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible. It causes things to burn and sparks the act of ignition…In the Mortal Bible in the book of Genesis it is the beginning of life...” The Professor opened his arms wide as he spoke with great bravado “‘And God said, “Let there be Light!’” and there was light.’’ His hands released a stream of lightning bolts that flashed so majestically that it caused all of the onlookers to mask their eyes from its harsh glow before the bolts ceased in their gleaming, “But remember God also labeled that light as good and God divided the light from the darkness…” As quickly as the flame flourished in his hands before, he used his fists with the same intensity causing all of the fluorescent bulbs to dim and the room to suddenly fall into complete darkness.”
Trisha North, FLAME: Chronicles of a Teenage Caster

Trisha North
“With just a tap on the gas, the car flew off of the road and skidded sideways into the encompassing woods. And I felt the sudden impact as the tires scraped against mounds of dirt, buried roots and jagged stones.

The blood-red moon lightly broke through the scattered leaves above us as we bounced among the hidden marshes that could have stretched for miles. But I had no recollection of time because everything, the sounds and the surrounding scenery swept by so quickly.

Gripping the steering wheel, his feet on the pedals, spine arched, and my hair whipping my face in the wind from the freshly broken glass on my passenger-side-window I couldn’t help but smile with the childish pleasure of being hurtled through the air as if we were on a rollercoaster built for two.”
Trisha North, FLAME: Chronicles of a Teenage Caster
