2:Legacy of the King



Chapter Two: Secillia
              
The sun’s warmth wrapped around my face like a heated cushion, instead of biting winds and the dangerous frost I was used to. It wasn’t normally like this in the Partridge, but then again the Partridge wasn’t considered normal. Everywhere people had secrets, and everything is not as it seems. There was once a spread of rumors that were actually the truth despite the fantastical elements in them. Such as Watchers able to control the flow of dark magic from the stream of energy around them. If so they have the strength to tackle mountain bears with their bare hands. In some cases they could outrun a cheetah. It would be could if you and a Watcher both shared a grudge. I followed along the others who were whispering to themselves of the prospect that that maybe, just maybe, some of the books might be saved. 


            ‘Bah, these fools. If their minds were set right they wouldn't even be wondering if there was a book left in the entire world.' I thought. It was obvious they bought into what the Watchers told them . . . or were forced to believe it.
             
I started to scan the area for the rare herb I was looking for. It was for a special potion I was brewing. As I walked on the muddy path a familiar vendor named Bevin winked at me. “Hey, Secillia,” he whispered.

Panic gripped me. He might blow my cover. “What are you doing?!” I whispered back. I hoped to stay hidden within the mess of people (Idiots really), get the herb, and run straight out of here. After all tomorrow was the big day. Tomorrow I would leave this retched place.  Tomorrow I would finally be free of my father’s shadow which was always cast over me. Yet Bevin could alter the entire outcome by just looking at me. This was a very precise plan and I would not let him ruin it for me. I started walking the other way when I heard Bevin screaming. I turned my head long enough to see a figure hurtling towards me.“Ahhh,” I screamed. It was an ear piercing yowl loud enough for an entire village to wake up in the middle of the night. I quickly shut my mouth as I gazed into the depths of two big fiery red eyes. I stood up suddenly and started running. When I looked behind me I saw the entire Merchants Plaza looking at me, and a boy trailing behind me.My plan was gone at the most and delayed at the least. But this is just a setback. I will not give up when I have come this close. This time I sprinted away leaving the plaza behind me, and leaving me to my thoughts.

‘Now to get that herb.’
