As 3pm soon rolled around we all made our way over to potions class, knowing it was going to be very basic. Simple potions like making people smaller or larger as well as making people fall asleep were what we had been practicing in earlier lessons. “Ok class, today were going to make a truth potion” Professor Esme said in a cold voice, her hair dyed silver making her look very beautiful if not a little but dangerous, like all the teachers she wore her own robes which were a dark black with silver strips going along the edges which made it look very modern for the underlying fact she looked liked one of those dark mage’s. “Ok class, turn your books to page 8 and begin to make the spell” she said flatly whilst most the class looked rather excited about the task. Opening my book I looked through the ingredients floating over the amount I needed with my energy power “Wow I’m getting lazy” I thought taking my ingredients from the air before reading the instructions in the book. “Ok, grind the leaves to dust, add power and then pour into a bowl of water at boiling temperature” I said to myself filling up my bowl of water as I placed my hand underneath it heating it up to boiling much quickly that the small fires did. Using my energy power I used the stone rock to grind the leaves up into the small bowl as I quickly added the powder. “Add mixture to the boiling water and stir, adding a single Hornaberry berry every 30seconds until the mixture changes colour” I muttered going along with the instructions, floating over some berries whilst tipping the powdered mixture into the water I watching intrigued by the hopeful reaction. The water in the pot instantly turned black and thick making it hard for me to stir, adding in a berry I felt it dissolve into the thick liquid making the potion ever so slightly thinner. Watching the clock I waited 30seconds before adding another berry “Once the liquid has changed colour to become a clear as water, add in a single leaf from a Tarrant Tree to complete the potion” I said aloud watching the liquid noticing it had started to get slightly lighter in colour.
Stirring for a good few minutes the potion eventually became clear and adding in the final ingredient I stirred until that too had dissolved in the bubbling concoction lowering the heat the potion cooled down rather quickly, “I’m done miss” I said calling over the professor as she strode over to me looking very authoritative, “Well take a sip, if it doesn’t work nothing will happen” she said rather arrogantly like she knew it wasn’t going to work. Picking a small spoon a took out a small amount of the serum as I quickly drank it, instantly noting the lack of taste and smell, “It doesn’t taste of anything, not even of water” I said as she grinned “Congratulations, it worked then” she said smiling before turning and walking back to her desk “So Mr. Dovell, what’s your parents name?” the teacher asked as I looked at her funny not even realised the sounds coming from my mouth as I said my parents names “John and Jenifer Dovell” I heard, realising that it was the serum talking and not me. “Good, the serum takes over your mind slightly, so it’s not like the human truth serums where you just struggle to lie, with potions the truth will be spoken and you will have no control of it, like a second person controlling your mouth” she said as I looked worried hoping people wouldn’t asked personal questions “Tell me Mr. Dovell, is there any girl you have a crush on?” Professor Esme asked with a cocky smile as I tried to guide my truth “There are a few girls I have a crush on” the truth said as I tried to recover quickly “But, I doubt I would ever ask out some of them” I added quickly, the whole classes eyes on me as people began slurping drinks. “Could you tell us their names?” she asked as I gained control “No” I said firmly the spell finally weak enough for me to stop it “Ok students, remember Mr. Dovell is strong willed, the stronger you are the easier it will be to block the serums effect, after a while the serum will slowly fade. You gained control in 5minutes, which is quiet impressive” she said grinning. Soon enough the room was amass of giggling and embarrassed faces as the students asked the most embarrassing questions first getting an honest answer.
I had a lot of fun that lesson, it would have been nice to take the potion back to my room, but we were all forced to leave empty handed. Taking my time, I casually wandered the school halls and corridors, no real aim just walking through saying hi to a few people, shaking off the occasional girl from the year above who would try and get close to me. Eventually I wound up at the main hall, as is the way with this school, opening the doors and stepping in I calmly walked down to my normal seat as students were filing in through the doors a lot more packed than normal.
“Thank you for joining me on such short notice” Headmaster Harris said speaking up taking me by surprise having heard nothing about this “After last week’s kidnapping of you all, I have decided to increase the amount of defence lessons you have per week, and to do this you must drop a subject. It is down to you which subject you would like to drop, that slot in your time table will be filled with your new defence class. Also defence class is being upgraded, you will be taught more spells that will hopefully make you safer in your future” he said boldly before taking a seat as I tried to think about what to drop. Spinning around I saw the back of Jess’s bright red head, “What subject are you dropping as if we pick the same one, we would have an extra class together” I said with a smile pulling her back resting on a force field, her grin so wide it would make a Cheshire cat jealous. “I would love to drop sport, on Wednesdays” she said smiling as I nodded “Wednesday it is then” I said sitting back up as the three girls behind me all starting giggling and talking whilst my table just grinned at me. “What!” I said questioningly at them, which only served to make them break out in laughter “Your hopeless mate” Danny said laughing as I frowned in confusion, completely lost at his meaning I just sat there moving the conversation on.
The next day, to my excitement was Wednesday which for me meant a new lesson of defence class with Jess. I was quite happy how the situation had turned out as a lot of the people loved sport class, with it being one of the only lessons your could be a bit reckless in. Most students dropped subjects such as history or other theory based subjects such as magical creature’s studies or magical plant life studies. So with only a small number of people in my new defence class I knew it was going to be fun.
Walking down the halls with Danny and Tommy next to me, we quickly stepped into our large class room to find most the girls waiting for us as well as Professor Kroll standing with a woman, tall and statuesque her clothes making her look very smart as she wore normal human clothes instead of our traditional robes. “That’s everybody know, please take your seat” Professor Kroll said calmly as we all watched him but paid more attention to the women now sat on a chair in the corner observing us. “Class this is Lady Grove, she is here to monitor me to make sure I am teaching you all at the standard I should be, so relax” he said sounding rather nervous himself. “Continuing on with yesterdays lesson on fire movement, who can tell me what we learnt” he asked as a few hands shot up “Yes Mr. Quarrel” He said pointing to Tommy as he cleared his throat. “We learnt that creating moving fire, can be easier to control for example creating a sphere like this the flame will not spread as the fire moves inwards when bending” he said creating a sphere for proof “Excellent, yes now today we are going to be advancing this technique by using it on the fire animals we have been practicing making, so I want you to practice with your animals and make the fire bend inwards so there are no flames flickering” he said as I quickly cleared the tabled to the side standing at the back of my room because my creations were always bigger.
Danny and Tommy both made wolves whilst Summer made a large fiery bird, looking at their animals I looked to Professor Kroll as he was watching me excited standing next to Miss. Grove who was also watching me. Setting my body on fire, I looked down at myself bending the fire inwards as it all travelled upwards flat against my robes, to say the least it looked cool like I was just pure fire though it was incredibly detailed, more so than my previous fiery body’s. I left my hair like normal leaving the fire a place to escape to as I walked around giving a few twirls for the people watching me. Stopping my motions I created a force field set of steps as I walked up them much to the classes amazement, reaching the top I created a invisible force field saddle and in the second I swung my leg over and my fiery body touched the force field I created a horse made out of fire, the flames originating from the saddle as I increased the detail making it looked like a realistic horse except it was on fire.
Now the whole class had stopped and watched me as I removed the fire from my body, having to slowly disperse from my head making the overall effect look like the horse absorbed my flames, taking a few steps it was difficult to sync it up as I was sat on a floating force field and making the horse match my movements. Making the horse walk in a few steps I had to add the weird bouncing motion though I soon had it figured out, “Teleporting is no longer the coolest way to travel” I said facing the class we people laughed. Stopping the horse I focused on the face making it more detailed as it snorted small jets of fire as the mane of the horse was also flickering like normal fire as was the tail, though everything else was flush flat. “Very impressive Jamie, now stop distracting the other students” he said as I quickly removed my force field dropped through the fiery horse as I soaked al the fire back into my dispersing it as it touched my skin, making it look incredibly awesome . With my fire all gone, I sat back down in my seat watching Tommy and Danny as their wolves were equally as detailed, and they fact they were smaller meant they needed more detail than my horse.
“Good class, very good. Now to take this another step further I want you to try and increase the temperature... maintain the shape but make it hotter, if you can try and change the flame colour” Professor Kroll said as we all grinned, quickly hurrying back to my open space I jumped up onto my saddle creating the fiery horse at the first touch. With the horse immediately identical to the previous horse in detail, I decided to add a few features... Firstly I made the hooves glow bright white as I made the whiteness travel just a few inches high from the hoof. Then I made the horses eyes a deep fiery purple which looked deadly, I made the eyes slightly bigger so the purple flames flickered out above the eye socket, I then created a white fiery cowboy hat on my head as well as a white sheriff badge made of fire on my robe causing the class to laugh. Adding white fiery spurs to my shoes I changed the saddle to a lighter orange than the horse as I made a force field rope on my saddle as I pulled the rope guiding my horse in a circle. “I seriously cannot wait for Halloween” I said laughing causing most the students to laugh as they watching me trot around on my horse. Creating some stirrups for my feet out of a force field I stood up on the horse pulling him up by the rope as it stood on two legs moving the front feet slightly in a boxing motion before coming back down.
Dropping through the fire again I dispersed it all whilst walking back to me seat “Kind of rubbish without the sound effects” I said making people chuckle. Sitting down I watched people trying and change the colours as I made flames on the end on my fingers, starting off with a normal orange flame on my thumb I went done the fingers changing colours as I had white, red, dark blue, green and purple. “4 more colours” I said to myself noticing the fingers I had left flameless as I focused on changing the type of fire I had, “I somehow manage to combine my white and red flame making a bright pink flame which was cool getting a lot of attention from the girls. “That’s cool dude” Danny said entranced by my multi coloured flames on my fingers. “Here” I said pushing the flames over to his wolf as I gave the wolf pink eyes, white paws and a mix of red and orange for the coat, although I could see he was struggling to maintain the heat. “Oh god” Danny said giving up on control as the fire dropped onto the floor spreading as I quickly picked it up floating it up into the air as I dispersed it. “Thanks” Danny said panting and sweating trying to get some energy back, his face looking like he had just ran a marathon. “Mr. Dovell, please don’t hand out fires, not everybody can control them as well as you” Professor Kroll said trying to discipline me but was too nice a teacher to be strict.
Creating a copy of myself I shrunk it down to the size of a mouse which was actually quiet comical to see. Floating the mini me up into the air and oblivious to everybody there I placed him on the shelf behind Lady Grove as whilst looking through the eyes of the copy I could see what she was writing. To my surprise it wasn’t about Professor Kroll but about me; “Jamie Dovell, 45 spikes and 80minutes, shows extreme control of large fires (detailed life size horse, with a mix of red, white and purple flames for detail) Can produce 8 different colour flames with ease. Also can mix fire with energy talent creating a force field which he made the shape of a saddle to make it look like he was riding his fiery horse, shows great control over large amount of fire making the saddle movement sync up with the actual movement of a horse to make it look extremely realistic” I read in my head as I tried to make myself look busy watching the class when I was in fact just staring into space as I read her page. “Doesn’t seem to show any signs of domination or aggressiveness, he does show off a bit dispersing flames and setting himself on fire in a pointless manner only for the effect that it looks good. From the looks of it, and my knowledge from teachers for only being in school for a few months he is already at 3rd and 4th year levels, being able to teleport and have excellent control before his first day at Harrington’s” I read, trying not to grin as I looked out to the class blankly. “I also fear that he has been reading my notes from behind me as his blank stare is now obvious” it read as I quickly removed the copy focusing my attention back on the class as I grinned watching the women stare it me from my peripheral vision.
The lesson ended a bit later after we got a few more goes at adding detail and movement to our flames, moving away from the horse, I created a large bear as well as I Chinese dragon which both looked extremely cool as my dragon got me a round of applause from the class. Walking out into the corridor I created my horse again as I strolled through the school into the main hall on my fiery horse as people all stared amazed before cheering, walking down the side up onto the performance stage I deformed the horse stretching it out as I turned into my Chinese dragon, adding even more detail I made the long moustache flames awesome as well as adding some bright purple eyes, the claws and teeth were all bright was I a grew my saddle out going a bit further down the body as I walked down the steps stopping next to Jess. Holding up my hand she quickly climbed on as she held onto my around my waist, lifting the dragon up we flew around the room as people cheered and clapped watching us. Morphing the dragon again it turned into a huge fiery phoenix causing another cheer to erupt from the students, flapping back down onto the performance stage I dispersed the flame and removed the saddle landing us on the stage perfectly unharmed as we walked back to our seats. “You really are a show off” Summer said sitting down, her face in the look of amazement seeing me flying around. “Is that easy for you?” Tommy asked as I shrugged “It’s easy to control but the hard part is syncing it up, I mean I’m sat on a force field, so to move I have to move the force field but then I have to move the fire in the same way and for things like horses where you bounce I have to move the force field in a bouncing fashion to match the horse’s movements and it’s all very confusing” I said as people laughed and I could hear the girls behind me listening to me before talking about it.
We talked throughout lunch all about our plans for the half term coming up in a few days as we had made plans to meet up in Barca, “My brother said that, the circus will be there” Tommy said as I stopped to look at him “There’s a mage circus?” I asked as he nodded “They go around the cities and towns performing, they are all quiet powerful and they perform tricks and stunts” he said as I grinned “I wouldn’t mind seeing that” I said hopefully as we continued talking about general nonsense.
Walking done the corridor I was stepped into my Life class, finding a few people already sat down waiting patiently as I joined them looking over to the right in the same spot as in my fire class Lady Grove sat there with her pen and paper not making it subtle that she was watching me. “Today class, we are going to go outside, our grounds have become untidy and require a bit of life put in to them, so please follow me” Professor Sowl said in her ever calmly gentle voice, “Jamie how did you drain that man of his life” a girl asked me from the water class looking at me causing other people to stare waiting for an answer “I’m not sure, I just did but I know I’m not doing it again, that was the first thing to actually drain me, I felt so weak afterwards” I said to who making the point that it was too powerful for them to attempt. Stepping out on the dead grass students immediately started healing up the area around them, “Life is the most draining talent there is, so you should always be careful when you use it for if you use if at the start of a fight you will be too tired and become an easy target” Professor Sowl said lightly her voice almost a whisper but remained loud enough to hear “Now everybody go and heal as much as you can, Jamie if you could heal the rest” she said looking to me as I nodded watching the students quickly walk off finding a dead space of land to heal. That just left me, Professor Sowl and Lady Grove standing by the entrance to the school, “So why are you monitoring me?” I asked as she sighed “How did you know I was?” she asked as I chuckled making a copy of myself as I shrunk him down in my hand “I was reading your notes over your shoulder” I said making the small copy wave making both women chuckle. “Well no point lying, after you killed that man, the Council sent me to monitor your for a week to check out your personality, to make sure it hasn’t changed since you’re classification, they are worried with a mage so strong you could be a threat if you reacting badly to taking a life” she said as I sighed “I understand, I did have an off week afterwards but I’m over it now” I said as it perked her interest “Did you feel bad for what you did?” she asked looking at me whilst I shrugged “I’m mean I felt bad for taking a life but that wore of quickly as either he died or the students did, but I felt bad was that I made a show of his death, I could of easily burnt him alive or crushed him in a force field, but no I did something totally new and made a show of it to scare his leader and I felt bad for that” I said as she nodded “Well you don’t seem like you’re about to become a undefeatable mass murderer” she said with a chuckle causing me to laugh “So what else have you written about me, I haven’t read anything past when you guessed I was watching you” I asked as she chuckled “Your trance stare, gave me a hint so I wrote it down thinking I would catch you out, which I did” she said laughing as Professor Sowl let out a girlish giggle. “Anyway, you’re a pretty normal kid, I have spoken to your teachers and they say that you are always friendly and helpful but you do like to show off, but they said that the horse you made today is fairly small to what you can do so I guess making wolves would be too easy for you” she said as I nodded “I like to try and push myself, Professor Kroll still teaches me new stuff, I just do it at a higher level than the other students” I said watching her nod in reply. “Anyway, I’m here for 2 more days then I will leave, so show off as much as you want, give the old men something to be jealous about when they read my memories” she said as I grinned nodding.
We had only been talking for 10minutes before all the students came back looking tired and defeated “I’m just going to check where needs doing” I said teleporting around the grounds finding lots of dead patches before teleporting back to the class “You may want to shield your eyes” I said calmly walking past the crowd into an open space as several off them pulled out sunglasses almost half expecting this to happen. Standing in an open space I looked around before looking up at the school as every window was full of faces all watching me from above.
Lighting my hands up in the glowing energy, I poured my whole mind and soul in to the output of my life energy, my body getting brighter and brighter as I saw people start to look away hiding from the purest of lights. Kneeling down I placed my hands on the ground shooting my energy through as I focused hard going brighter and brighter as it even when people looked away they couldn’t see anything, my light so bright it made everything hard to see. Feeding my energy though I brought the whole castle grounds to life growing grass in all the dead spaces, even making several trees and growing them to full life, flowers bloomed out of season as I created more plants, greener grass and more of it, the grass was thin and frail but I made it thick and green like a meadow. Lowering my output my body dimmed down, enough for people to turn and see me as I sat on the floor panting, however people were more interested in the new ground, it looked beautiful thick green grass everywhere as healthy vines climbed the school, tree’s with thick with green leaves and bloomed flowers, it really did look beautiful. “You ok Jamie?” Professor Sowl asked walking up to me as I wobbled trying to stand up “Yeah, that took more out of me than I care to admit” I said finding my legs as I looked down to find two patches of grass thicker and longer than everywhere else as two patches where an exact match for my hand print. “You built stuff with your healing energy” a girl said speaking up causing me to chuckle, looking over at her she was sat on a bench made out of wood which came up from the base of the tree but it didn’t have a trunk, it went straight into thick braches which I weaved into a bench. “There’s a few of those around, if you didn’t see I put my hands to the ground, you should check out the cliff when you have some time” I said calmly as all the students quickly hurried off, even Professor Sowl and Lady Grove followed them leaving me alone to take a few breathes on the bench to try and get some energy back.
Standing up I walked for a bit checking out my work as I tweaked a few things reshaping plants before teleporting down to the dock as I saw the crowd of students eyes my plant life whilst they ran down the steps, teleporting to where they were standing I followed their gaze up to the cliff face as it was covered trees, coming out from the side then bending upwards, there was only about 7 trees in total but the cool thing was each tree had a small room built into by the branches, with the thick leaves as a roof. The room was only about the size of a king sized bed but it was sturdy and was enough space to consider a small hideout. “How do we get up there?” a girl asked as I chuckled “I could teleport you, or you could climb the cliff” I said hearing people laugh at the latter option. “Do you think you could create a large tree house that could fit a class in there that would be a cool hideout” Another boy from the earth class said speaking up as I shrugged, “Sure, but not today... I’m beat” I told him causing people to grin and nod before walking back up the stairs. “Were you healing us as well when you trying to blind us” Professor Sowl asked causing me to laugh “Collateral healing, why do you feel better?” I asked smiling “Few aches and pains I didn’t know I had have vanished, that’s all” she said smiling as I quickly teleported us all up to the front of the school where we started. “Ugh, I’ve never liked that” Professor Sowl said gripping her stomach “Ok class, head back to our class room please” she said walking next to me behind the class as we made our way through the halls. “I’m astonished by your control of your power, not many people can grow life only healing and possibly guide it on small things, but you grew trees out of cliffs into whatever you wanted” she said causing me to blush slightly at the compliment “I’ve done a lot more than what I showed you, the tree houses on the cliff are just decoys for my own hideout” I said causing her to gasp and frown at me “There’s no rules against it as nobody has been that powerful, but I will keep it a secret as long as it’s safe and doesn’t damage the school” she said quietly our walking slowed so the other students didn’t hear. “Thanks” I said happily looking up at the beauty standing next to me “One condition though” she said smiling not even looking down at me “Name it?” I asked nervously looking ahead at the students stepping into the class “You let me use it whenever I want, I could do with a hiding place” she said calmly as I grinned “Sure, I’ll take you after class if you want” I said watching her nod before stepping into the classroom.
“Ok Class, please get out your textbooks were going to be learning a bit about what Jamie demonstrated with the bench... how to guide life to your will” she said in her soft voice whilst all the class looked fairly excited. “Although, I doubt any of us will be able to do what Jamie did at his level, we can still guide smaller plants; Life isn’t just about healing and growing, if you grow certain parts you can twist the plant to take a shape you want.” She said as I spotted Lady Grove walking into the class room behind us, obviously having taken a moment to check the grounds.
“Could you all please take a flower from the vase at the front, grow the flower to full health but not only that, make it grown into the shape you want” Professor Sowl said calmly watching the students pick a flower whilst I floated one over to me. All I had was a single rose with a long stem as I cut off four short pieces of the bottom of the stem, placing them in a square shape I focused my healing on them as they started growing going up as 4 singular stems but quickly weaving together as I made a body of a deer. Making the stems go back down to the feet I made the legs thickening them up as it actually looked like the body of a deer, making the head I weaved them around before ending it by making some antlers turning it form a deer to a stag “Here you go Professor” I said floating the stem stag over to her desk as she quickly picked it up to examine it “How much of the stem did you use?” she asked as I shrugged “About a centimetre cut into four for the hooves where I started it” I said picking up my rose as I split the middle of the stem in half bending it to make a heart shape stem for my brilliantly red healthy rose. Inside the heart I creating a tiny thin stem as I wrote the word ‘Show Off’ inside the heart with the stem before floating it over to Lady Grove who couldn’t help but giggle as she read the rose.
Picking up another Rose flower from the vase I made a huge rose flower on the end of a stem as I carefully floated it up over a girls head spearing it through her bun as it stay there, the girls all quickly giggled and fussed over it before the girl wearing it mouthed a ‘Thank You’ at me.
Taking yet another rose from the vase, all eyes were now looking at me wondering was I would make next, twisting the flower around trying to decide that very question I pulling the head off, I thickened up the stem bending it and making the stem form the word ‘LOVE’ in fancy writing before re-growing the rose flower inside the ‘O’ making it look pretty awesome as I handed it to the girl next to me who just blushed placing it directly in front of her on her desk thanking me for it. “Ok, now I want you to try this out on a flower of your choice” Professor Sowl said watching me expectantly as I cut of stems of several flowers before sitting back down. Taking all the heads of them I heard the girls sigh at my defacing of flowers, but I didn’t take it seriously placing all the stems together in a bundle I grew them upwards twisting together to make one long stalk as I split the steams continuously making it into a sort of cone shape as more and stems grow. It was only about a foot long but it looked like a wooden funnel, on the top of my funnel on the thickest part I started to grown the flower heads making about 3 grow per steam as the further in I went the higher I made the flowers grow as it looked like an ingrown bouquet, the mix of pink, white and red flower heads all merging together as it looked fairly decent at the end.
Placing the bouquet on my desk, I looked around the class as nearly all the girls were hoping I would give it to them. “Sorry I have plans for this one” I said watching them all sigh collectively as I put it to the side before making something different, picking up some red flowers in different shades I did the same twisting them together as I grew it out, placing it around my waist, I split it into two going around my shoulders as I made some large wings out of wood as the starting part of the model was my harness. Growing it all out I looked like a wooden skeleton angel. I quickly added more spines to the wings before coating them in red flowers, going all the way down each spine as I made tiny stems connecting the spins together as I soon had a set of red flowery wings all in different shades of red making it look a bit like fire, pulling on the main stems of my wings they went outstretched revealing more flowers inside as the classroom clapped. Calmly breaking the straps of the harness I floated the flowery wings suit above the class as it hung outstretched above Professor Sowl’s office door, “Very beautifully made Jamie” Professor Sowl said smiling as I sat back down.
Taking a break I watched several people try and make the bouquets I did but got to weak and tired to continue after twisting all the stems together, girls were making words from stems and a few of the stronger students even tried to make stem animals like my stag but struggled trying to make it look right. After helping a few of the students out the class ended as I quickly took my flowers teleporting into Jess’s room knowing she wasn’t there.
“Hey, what are you doing in here” a girl behind me shouted as I turned to find Joanna “Shh” I said putting a finger to my mouth her face going from angry to calm in an instant, I placed the flowers on Jess’s bed evident by the dog asleep on it, placing the flowers on the wooden headboard I sprouted the thin part of the stems out, wrapping it around the head board going down to the ground as I put in more of the white and pink flowers along the stems surrounding the headboard and posts. Looking to the right side of the head board next to her bed side cupboard I grew out a thin stem writing ‘Because I can’ with the wood stem before turning to walk away “I was never here, you were never in this room when this happened, you know nothing of what happened” I said to her as she quickly nodded watching me teleport out her room.
Landing in my seat in the main hall I immediately spotted Jess behind me as I started talking to Tommy, “That was quiet the show you put on outside, I didn’t think you could get drained from doing magic” he said causing people to laugh “Yeah, go explore the grounds, I made some tree houses on the side of the cliff as my little hideaway” I said as he grinned “What all this I hear about you being all romantic giving out gifts in your life class” Danny said eating his sandwich as I laughed “It’s life class and we were given roses, there is no other topic you can use a rose for and I didn’t want to keep them” I said justifying myself causing them all to laugh “I heard you made a flowery set of wings” Summer said as I nodded “Their above her office door” I said as she smiled at me.
Looking around I noticed Joanna walking into the main hall quickly spotting me as she tried to stifle her smile but she managed just as she reached her table sitting down with her friends, “Do you have you defence class next?” Tommy asked which I nodded too “I can’t believe you gave up sport, that like the only class you can go all out in, plus your intimidation stuff makes half the school wet themselves” he said as I chuckled “I’m too powerful for sport, it’s actually rather unfair, at least now you stand a chance of winning” I said causing everybody to laugh “Yeah, I might end up scoring today as I won’t end up barbequed anymore” Danny said causing me to laugh “Anyway, best be off we have to get changed, good luck in defence class” Tommy said as they all got up leaving me alone on my table as I felt a tap behind me “Hello” I said leaning backwards as I caught Jess as she leant back both of us face to face leaning at a 45 degree angle “Can you be my partner in defence class, I want to go against somebody who doesn’t cower away” Jess said as I chuckled “I’d love to, anyway there’s something I want to show you” I said taking her hand as I quickly teleported us into a pitch black room “Where are we?” Jess asked as I quickly built a fire in my hands lighting up the room, “I made this during Life class, this is an underwater cave, with an air pocket in... I found it when feeding my life energy through the floor, so I broke into it and I’m going to use it as a secret hide out” I said making her grin “Ok we’ll it needs some fixing up, torches desks a fire” she said as I nodded “Well I wanted to show you first so I could get your ideas on it” I said as she grinned “Who else knows about it?” she asked as I sighed “Professor Sowl knows and I was meant to show her it but I forgot, I would like to get Rosie and Becky down here and it will just be the 5 of us that knows I want to use Professor Sowl to help us keep it a secret” I said as she nodded.
“Take us back, go show the professor before class so you don’t get in trouble and then we will decorate it after defence class” Jess said extremely happy about it as I quickly took us back into the main hall much to everybody’s surprise. “See you at class” I said letting go of Jess as I teleported into Professor Sowl’s class startling her as she was sat at her desk playing with my stag I made her. “Oh Jamie, don’t do that” she said quickly clutching her chest as she breathing deeply trying to regain control of the shock. “Sorry, I forgot to take you to me hideout so were going now” I said grabbing her hand teleporting us down into the darkness as she groaned clutching her stomach. Creating fire in my hands I moved it into a loop tracing the walls as Professor Sowl looked around “You made this room?” she asked as I chuckled “No, I found it I broke into it with a vine to give me access but only way in is through the water” I said as she smiled “I’ve shown Jess and I will show Rosie and Becky the Australian twins, but it will only be the 5 of us down here” I said as she nodded “you know you have to build another entrance as we won’t all be with you to teleport in” she said as I nodded “Were not that deep in the ground, I think I could make a trap door into the dock if I tried” I said as the women smiled and nodded “I will be stealing some torches after my lesson so we can see in here but I think I will make everything else” I said walking around the space as the room light up nicely with the contract of the fire against the water. “Anyway we have lessons, so let’s go” I said calmly taking Professor Sowl’s hand teleporting us back into her room before letting go and teleporting to my defence class arriving only 2 minutes early.
“All done” I said walking up to Jess as she grinned, “While you go around pinching things, I’m going to go to my room and pick up some books and paper so we have something to do down there” Jess said walking into the class, following her in I quickly sat down next to her.
Defence class was also a bit dodgy, our professor looked especially pissed off today, probably due to having more classes. “Ok class, take your chairs and find a partner... you are to stand on your chairs facing each other and to cast the spell only to knock your opponent of their chair” he said coldly and menacingly as we all quickly paired up moving to an empty part of the hall as we had a good 15ft gap between me and Jess. Looking past Jess I saw Lady Grove sat on the side having a perfect view of me and Jess although this time her note book was nowhere to be seen.
Pulling out my wand I waved it a bit sending a harmless bolt of energy through the air hitting Jess as she just stood there “What was that?” she asked me laughing “I thought you would flinch and fall off” I said making her laugh as she readied her wand. “Frov” Jess said forcefully sending a super fast white bolt of energy at me as the force sent me flying off my chair, however I caught myself in the air using my telekinesis landing myself back on my chair making her groan whilst I laughed “Refrefta” I said using a spell she didn’t know as I aimed it at her chair, the red bolt hit and the chair instantly splintered into a thousand pieces causing her to fall back onto her bum “Ow” Jess said standing up as I cast another spell “Evo Repairus” I said aiming back at the chair as it instantly reformed back into a normal sturdy chair “That was different” Jess said as I grinned “What was that spell?” she asked as I laughed “Refrefta, breaks any inanimate object into a thousand pieces” I said as she nodded trying it on my chair as I floated myself above it casting a repair spell on my own chair before landing back down “Ugh why did you do that?” Jess groaned as I laughed “Because I can” I said stumping her sending another spell at her “Dillium dispel” I said casting it at her chair again as the legs suddenly gained life running around using the legs of the chair as normal legs shaking and jumping whilst Jess clung onto the back rest for safety. The second Jess jumped off the chair quickly become lifeless going back to its normal state as Jess was getting annoyed at losing, picking up her chair and standing back on it she pointed her wand at me “Zar de than” she said loudly sending a bright white bolt at me as the bolt went straight through my force field hitting me as it sent me flying up into the air spinning, my body flew backwards high as I hit the wall nearly 20ft in the air before crashing to the ground, my body hitting the wall with such speeds that I actually left a dent in it as well as a blood marks on the floor around my body. Standing up to my feet Jess just stood there shocked, in fact every student stood their shocked “Ow” I said sarcastically putting my hand to my head and then pulling it back finding it covered in blood “Double ow” I said looking at Jess in her eyes, giving me the most apologetic look I have ever seen. Healing my body up I looked around the class and down at Lady grove as they were all watching me heal myself. “You win that one” I said jokingly as people laughed.
“Mrs. Hail, why did you use such a powerful spell on Mr. Dovell” our professor asked looking at Jess accusingly “I didn’t know what it did, my mum used it to scare away a bear once a few summers back, she missed the spell but the bear ran away, I knew it was a strong spell but I didn’t know what it did” Jess said as I sat down on my chair watching “I’m fine, it all ok” I said speaking up as Professor Lord walked away rather annoyed. Trying to lighten the mood I cast an anti-gravity spell on Jess sending he high into the sky as she left her seat, “Ok you can bring my down now” Jess shouted amongst the laughing as I looked to Lady Grove who was just chuckling my attempt to lighten the mood clearly working. Placing Jess in my telekinesis I lowered her back down waiting for the spell to where off, after a few second I felt her body get heavier in my metal grasp, quickly placing her on her seat we carried on casting spells and blocking oncoming spells as I was taught that my want would deflect certain spells. Although any disarming spells would still work.
Using a few of the new spells we learnt the lesson ended on a bit of a high note as lots of students copied us using anti-gravity spells and breaking the chairs. “Animal class tomorrow, let’s hope I don’t have to teach” I said walking back to my desk with Jess, her face going wide with a massive smile. “Anyway, I will see you tomorrow morning” I said walking out the class ahead of everybody else, walking down the empty corridors I picked up about 7 torches before quickly teleporting into my secret hide out, the room was immediately brighter placing the torches on the walls and using the vines to hold them there. Growing the main vine out I thickened it up and flattened it out snaking its way across the floor bending in a U-turn at each end making it look like natural wood decking, however more importantly the floor was now flat.
Looking around the room I built a desk coming up from the floor as well as some chair, all pieces well made and comfy as I got to work on building more things. Around the outside I built two wood bookcases and another table against the wall for me to practice things on. Walking over to the dock I lifted up the rock with my telekinesis before pulling out the soil making some steps going up into the floor. Melting the four stone slabs together I created a hinge on the stones it was sat on so it worked like a door, but still remained flush with the floor from above.
Teleporting into the castle, I quickly walked up to the water class girl’s common room as I quiet nervously knocked on the door. “What’s the password?” a voice said behind not knowing who I was whilst I stifled my laugh “Ummm, open the door before I break it, or does it need a pretty please at the end” I joked hearing laughing as my reply as Joanna opened the door smiling at me “Jess, it’s for you” Joanna said loudly as I heard girlish screams come from behind her as Jess quickly ran out the door jumping onto me giving me a hug, I landed hand on the ground with a grunt as Jess quickly apologised getting off me as I stood up “I’m guessing you liked the flowers” I said looking up finding several girls standing in the doorway watching “Yup, I love them thank you, nice touch with the message” she said as I chuckled “Well do you want to see what I’ve built or are you going to go scream girlishly with your friends” I asked jokingly as she laughed “I can scream with them later, show me your masterpiece” she said taking my hand for only a second later I teleported us to the hide out which now looked awesome. “This is great” she said checking everything out making me very proud of my creation, standing there watching Jess I think I actually felt love towards her. I already knew I was protective of her we got along great but something just click and whilst she was examining every detail of the hideout she wasn’t the only friend I had before school but more the girl I wanted to share things with. “I’m glad you like it” I said focusing back to reality deciding to plan things out later.
The next few days where great, in animal class the teacher actually managed to teach so I sat down with Jess and we talked and had a good time together. We spent a lot of time in the hideout which now had hammocks and beds as well as dozens of books to read, Professor Sowl also spent a surprisingly large amount of time down there as she often slept in the bed there. She said she was constantly kept awake by pets and people talking and it was peaceful down here, so I didn’t really question it. Today was Friday and I had just finished my history lesson which was incredibly dull, walking out of class I quickly teleported into the main hall. Being the first one there from my class, I sat at the table alone trying to plan my next week off, I created a small fiery chart in front of me as I tried to plan my days, some days were with my parents whilst others would be in Bacra.
Hearing the door open and my class walk in, I quickly dispersed my schedule watching them walking down the aisles sitting down on the table around me. “You know you could of teleported us all here” Tommy said with a bit of mock frustration causing me to chuckle “Sorry, I wasn’t thinking” I said to him as he smiled. “Anyway when did you want to meet up next week?” he asked looking over the table whilst a few of us shrugged in response “I can’t do the weekend, my parents are planning a meal” I guessed knowing we would do something as a family on the weekend “Same, any time in the week will be fine” Danny said confirming it all as by the time dinner had arrived we planned to meet up on Monday at the bottom of Green Street at 11am.
“Hey Jamie, you might be able to do this, but I watch a trailer for a video game called Diablo 3, in the trailer there were these gods that basically turned into a ball of light travelling through the air before landing back as humans again, do you think you could do that with fire” Tommy asked confusing me to no end “Here like this” Summer said pulling out her phone which wasn’t really allowed as she opened up YouTube playing the video. “That’s cool” I said grinned as I stood up walking over to the performance stage causing nearly all the students to cheer. Looking back at Tommy and then down at Jess I set myself on fire, my flames going a lot redder than usual as I sprouted a set of massive fiery wings, all very detailed and accurate as I used my telekinesis to flying around in the air going very quickly making the flames trail behind me, landing on my knees with my wings spread out people cheered at the awesome sight, my body whizzing through the air being all they saw was a ball of fire only becoming defined once I had landed. Standing up I jumped up floating myself in the air with my fiery wings spread wide as I created a large horse below me, dropping myself down I landed on the force field saddle making it look like I was standing on the horse. Walking the horse around it snorted like horses do but instead of air it snorted out two large jets of fire, walking the horse back over to the performance stage I dispersed it all before I thought up my next performance. Standing on the stage I created a ring of fire around me as I made the ring fire go high, higher than me causing it to mask my body from the watchful eyes of the students. Kneeling down I pushed the top of the ring down, pushing out the middles slightly making it look like it was an actual tube fighting the pressure of being squashed. In burst of fight the fire dropped to the ground sending thousands of streams everywhere all over the room which turned into small fiery birds, walking back to my seat the people watch the birds enthralled by their multicoloured beauty, back in my seat I flew the birds into the fires lighting up the hall and with each burn disappearing into the fire. They all looked back at the stage shocked that it was empty. “That was beautiful” Jess said behind me leaning back making me smile.
With the week coming to an end, we were all very excited about going home for a bit, Harrington’s was fun but I think everybody missed their parents, I know I am. To be honest I was actually rather dreading the walk back through the countryside. Now we were more powerful I knew any trouble caused would be amplified, I know I have more control than when I first came here.
On Saturday morning, the day we were leaving, I decided against taking anything home, I wouldn’t need my clothes as they were all at home anyway, I picked up a few books for some light reading as well as Prince before I made my way down the halls to the courtyard ready to go. Standing around I saw Danny and Tommy making their way down as well, also carrying a few books along with their pets. Danny’s pet was a rather small dragon although Tommy’s pet was a Hare. I was actually rather surprised at their size, both average size for them but tiny compared to Prince who was about 16ft long now and as thick as my thigh. We talked for a bit mostly about how they did in their Sport lesson, Tommy had apparently scored a number of goals and without me overpowering them all he was now the best in the class.
“Ok Students, we are going to make our way back the way we first came here and then once in Bacra you are free to do what you wish” Professor Featherwind said calmly leading us away and out into the countryside. Although we didn’t walk in pair in straight line I did manage to find Jess talking to Rosie and Becky who I guess she hadn’t spoken to in a while. Teleporting over there I listened to them gossip occasionally inputting something when I knew what they were talking about, “How are the boyfriends?” I asked curiously looking at Rosie who was smiling at me “Long gone, we got fed up of their constant asking to make out, I mean it’s fun but I don’t want to do it all day everyday” Rosie said making me laugh “What are you plans this week, I’m meeting the guys on Monday but if you would like to spend a day exploring the cities I would love to join you” I said hopefully seeing all the girls grin “And what if we drag you to all the girl shops” Jess asking smirking at me “Then you have to model anything you try on or buy for me” I said smiling back making them blush and giggle “That sounds like a good idea, plus you can teleport us around” Becky said now grinning at me while we started walking out the force field into the cold outside world.
“Jamie, can you heat us up” a few people shouted making me laugh, making a force field I spilt it down the middle of the large group of people spreading them apart slightly as I created a large fire snake down the middle, a series of “thank you’s” in reply.
Making our way through the cold windy terrain we came across the door leading into the Norway area. However this time no carriages awaited us and I hate to increase the heat of my fire snake to keep people warm. Looking down the mountain I saw the other door and being too lazy to walk the rather long trek down the mountain I put a large force field around all the students teleporting is to directly in front of the door. People immediately started groaning and clutching their stomachs not used to the feeling of teleportation but those who were stood calmly whilst Professor Featherwind opened the door into Bacra.
Seeing the Orange light shine through the door I felt overjoyed with happiness rushing through the door into the large hall were lots of parents stood waiting. Spotting Jess’s parents I quickly grabbed her hand teleporting her to directly in front of her mum whilst I spotted my mum just to the right of her already watching me. “Oh I missed you, how was it? Are you being good? Did you learn anything interesting?” my fired at me making me laugh “I missed you too, it was great, of course I am and yes lots of things” I said making her smile at my answers. “Is Jess coming back to ours?” I asked curiously whilst mum just shook her head. “Jess is going home, and so are we, your fathers at work and he is looked forward to seeing you, were going back out to the new forest to test out what you have learnt” mum said making me grin manically.
Walking back through the City we found a unused door whilst my cast a spell on it before opening it up revealing out kitchen, stepping inside I took in the small and sights of my kitchen, all tiled and tiled modern hugely different to the wooden and stone style of Harrington’s. “YES! Normal Clothes” I shouted teleporting to my room and opening my wardrobe to change, teleporting back down I slipped my wand into my sleeve holding it there under my Enchantment bracelet. “So what have you been up to mum” I asked seeing her smile sitting on the dining room table watching me enter the room. “Not much, to be honest I don’t like being home alone now, nothing to do” she said smiling at me while I sat down opposite her “Well why don’t you tell me what you have been up to?” she asked very interested in my life. “Umm lessons are ok, my animal lesson professor is a bit odd, he mumbles to himself and acts rather insane but when he focuses we learn a lot, some professors are rather scary to be honest, they act like if you do something wrong they will beat me” I said chuckling making mum nervous but calm seeing me chuckle. “I am more focused now, before I went I could do things vaguely but now I have more control and know what to do with certain things, the kids are fine as well I don’t really talk to the older students and there’s only a few girls that keep trying to date me for popularity, but it’s all going ok so far” I said putting her at ease as she smiled at me before getting up and heading into the kitchen. “What do you want for lunch?” she asked half knowing the answer “Cheese sandwich please” I asked nicely, her already knowing it was my favourite snack “They have very little bread there and snacks are usually fruit” I said rather annoyed that I couldn’t get a cheese sandwich at Harrington’s. “Ok well it’s in the microwave, now tell me what’s this about you killing somebody” mum asked going from her happy motherly smile to a firm cross expression in an instant. Over the next 30minutes I explained everything about what happened and lady grove while I ate my huge pile of cheese sandwiches.
Dad arrived home just after 6pm and was very happy to see me, giving me a big hug as well having the biggest grin on his face I had ever seen. “It’s great to see you, we’ve missed you terribly even your pranks” Dad said making us all laugh “I’ve missed you too dad, I can’t wait to show you what I can do now” I said excitedly seeing him smile and nod. “Well we will leave first thing in the morning but for now I have bought you this” he said rushing to the closet under the stairs pulling out a fancy robe that looked to be my size. “What’s this for?” I asked seeing him grin “Well firstly were going out to night in a fancy restaurant in Nomin, and you will need that robe for the Christmas dance at Harrington’s and you will be dancing” Dad said firmly making me giggle “I can dance, one time during the performance thing at dinner, I floated all 5 tables high into the air and created about 200 copies of myself and we all danced with girls from the school while Tommy did a music spell” I said stunning him “You can make 200 copies of yourself?” he asked nervously whilst I did just that. Creating a copy of my body dozens of me soon filled the house before vanishing back into me, my dad’s jaw clearly dropped before he smiled with such pride at me. “Anyway, what and where’s Nomin” I asked remembering the name I didn’t know “There’s more than one mage city, Bacra is basically the capital but there’s Nomin in the Arctic Circle, Deocron which is an underground city somewhere in the world, very bad place, it’s were the scum of the mage world end up and there’s also Skamton which is in Switzerland high up on and in the mountain” dad said making me gasp having never known this.
“Anyway, let’s get ready our reservation is at 8” he said leaving me with my robe as he went over to mum giving her a kiss. Getting dressed in my room I felt smaller than how I left it, the large rooms in Harrington’s made my bedroom feel like I was in a wardrobe, getting called downstairs I saw dad wearing a robe similar to mine a very glossy black and looking very smart whilst mum wore a gown, the top stopping at her chest as it hung just down the sides of her shoulders before going all the way down to the floor. It was weird, I had always seen mum as a rather casual person but right now you she looked stunning. “You look very pretty mum” I said calmly stepping into the room as dad quickly walked over to the door casting a spell as he opened it to reveal what looked to be a winter wonderland, houses were covered in snow as was the floor and it looked to be about 3 feet thick. Stepping out into the cold I quickly created a visible force field which went just above the snow so my parents knew where to step “Visible force fields?” Dad asked looking at me stunned “Just something I toy around with” I said playing it down whilst we walked over the snow in a single line, dad taking the lead as mum following him and I followed her, looked to each side of me I saw nothing but fancy restaurants it was clear people considered this a posh city. I could see people watching me in fascination and walking past one window I saw a cute girl sitting there watching me, although I didn’t recognise her I presumed she went to one of the other school and by the look of her I guessed Lady P’s girls school. Creating a bit of fire in my mouth I blow it to her, instantly turning it into a heart shape as it headed towards her window, I carried on walking back the fiery heart hit the window bursting open as I made tiny little streams shoot backwards when then gave a tiny explosion so it looked like fireworks.
I knew it looked good and by the time it was over I was out of sight leaving her sat on wonder which was sort of my plan, making myself seem a bit mysterious. Seeing dad stop I turned the force field to the left so he could walked towards the door of the restaurant, stepping inside the coldness leaving us as people all eyed my family walking through the door “Your name Sir?” the middle aged man asked standing at the podium “Dovell” Dad said proudly, the surrounding people obviously recognising the name because the waiter instantly started being nicer leading us to a table and being generally quick about things.
Sitting down I saw people glancing at me occasionally trying to put the name to the reason I was treated so highly. Ordering drinks I asked if I could have 3 pints of water, having to explain I overheat a lot which to be honest was my only problem with being powerful. “Let’s have a toast” Dad said excitedly speaking louder than necessary clearly showing off. “To my son, Jamie... World’s strongest mage and top in every class, I hope that you exceed greatly in everything you set your mind too” He said firmly and loudly letting everybody know whilst they gave me a small round of applause. “Wow thanks dad, although it was obvious your more excited about my power than I am it was still lovely” I said seeing him grin and blush, slightly embarrassed he was so obvious about it. “Not every father can be this proud of his son, and just like you I am going to show off” he said making me laugh seeing where my show off side came from.
Granted the fancy restaurant was nice, I was getting bored. Looking to the small vase of flowers on the table I took them out the water growing them to full health before twisting them together sprouting my branches and flowers on the end until the original 3 twigs with flowers become 10 twigs with about 30 flowers the enter thing looking like a bouquet. Placing it back in the vase I thought it looked much better, “Very impressive” mum said eyeing the flowers longingly “This is what I do, I follow the lessons but they are all very easy so if were making fire animals the students would make birds or dogs and I would make horses, I would do what they do, just bigger” I said dad grinning at the mention of fires the size of horses “But when I’m sat listening to stuff that I am way beyond I fiddle around with ornaments creating things” I said picking a flower off from the placing it on mums gown making the twig super thing going through the material a few times like I was sewing a button on. With the flower secure I made it grow slightly so it looked better, “What else do you do when you bored” dad asked looking at me intriguingly “Depends, usually its growing plants to make stuff but sometimes I like to try and make new colours” I said creating an orange, red, white, green, blue flames on my hand on each of my fingers and thumb already attracting some attention then mixing colours on my other hand so I had a purple, pink, violet and a lighter blue “those are stunning” mum said looking at my fingers “Yeah, green is my favourite but it’s pretty dangerous it sparks a bit if it gets too close to things, want to see what I made last week” I said rhetorically moving all my fingers together so they touched, created a large multicolour flame. Creating a visible force field I trapped the multicoloured flame in the force field before releasing the flames on my fingers so I just had a ball of trapped multi colour fire. “So do you want to play a game of catch like we used to dad” I asked grinning making him laugh “I’m ok, if that thing explodes you in trouble” he said forcefully. Dispersing the flames and then the ball I went back to the bouquet snapping off a bit of the handle to the bouquet creating a very detailed wooden stag. Looking around I floated it to nearby table giving it to the man who instantly gave it to his young daughter who only looked about 6. Looking at the man and the daughter, I created another twig figure, this time a large creature being a hawk. Creating a base and a branch for him to stand on I coated the hawk in brown flowers making him looked more detailed before floating it over to the same table, with desert being placed on the table we all dug in, mum eating her cheese cake and dad his weird fudge thing whilst I had the largest chocolate sundae I had ever had.
“Oh yeah, if you’re wondering how I paid for this Jamie, I got a second job in the council. I work as a doctor for the humans but I report to the council to let them know what sort of medical advances they make and how we could better help the humans in medicine” dad said proudly knowing he was doing good and I was proud of him for it as was mum. “Sweet” I said looking at him whilst we both smiled at each other.
Finishing my sundae was a mission, but somehow I managed it. After paying for the food we quickly left the restaurant making our way back towards the door we came in by, walking out and above the snow again I created a weak force field around some snow sending it flying towards my dad who fell off the force field path into the snow. Jumping off mum quickly began making snowballs along with my dad as they bother trudged backwards; I spotted the girl again in the window as she was talking to some older man who shook his hand. Mum took this open opportunity and sent her snowball straight for my face; getting my while I was distracted. Laughing it all I turned to see dad and mum floated about 50 snowballs around them waiting for me to get up, it was only an instant later I realised stupidly that snow was water and it was their element.
Getting the attention of the people in the restaurant either side of us both my parents launched their snowballs at me, quickly creating a force field I blocked them all watching the snow drop to the floor whilst both my parents were quickly creating more snowballs. “2 on 1 is a bit unfair on you isn’t it” I said laughing creating a hundred snowballs around me and behind them as I launched them all at one nearly burying them. Pushing away all the snow they built a snow wall as their line of defence before making more snowballs, taking advantage of my obscured sight of them I decided to show off, creating some visible steps going up I stood about 10ft off the ground, my parents being able to see me now over their wall as I jumped from the steps onto my invisible force field saddle, instantly creating my fiery horse when I landed on the saddle. Along with the reins I made the horse back up onto its hind legs, the flailing front to slicing through the wall melting it as the legs when through it. Watching them step back I made my horse blow out his nose two jets of fire melting the falling wall making my parents both step back trying to get more snow to through at me.
Slowing stepping through the melting snow around my fiery horse’s hoofs I creating a dozen snowballs launching them at my parents, however I was shocked feeling a snowball hit the back of my head. Turning around I saw the girl from the restaurant standing then was 5 snowballs floating around her “Water or Energy?” I asked loudly seeing her grin “Energy, like you” she said before firing all the snowballs at me. Turning on my horse I ran down the street away from the barrage of snowballs coming from the girl and my parents who had stockpiled a considerable amount.
In an open space at the end of the street I decided to test my intimidation ability as I floated myself up off the horse keeping it there whilst I was about 20ft above, setting myself on fire I started growing the horse making it jump and buck around as I grew it into a very large Chinese styled dragon, everything was detailed and ever the scales looked real. Using up a fair bit of power I drew in about half the streets worth of snow, turning it all into an army of snow soldiers which were marching towards the people now stood outside the restaurants to get a good view of the action.
Teleporting from my dragon I used my Diablo 3 style of fiery teleporting landing at the front of my army of 40 men walking towards my parents “I think you should give up now” I said firmly, everybody staring at me in disbelief as I was in full control of a huge fiery dragon as well as 30 force fields and my own fiery body. “Never” the girl shouted as I pointed to her and one of the soldiers ran towards her jumping on her burying her in his body, the force field disappear upon impact as the girl quickly scrambled out from the snow laugh her ass off. Seeing my parents stand their ground I made the first line of soldier turn into catapults and the second line of men become the ammo being fired.
My parents both launched snowballs at the now flying soldiers the impact breaking the force field making the snow just fall to the ground with no momentum. Running through the snow the girl quickly joined my parents as I saw her moving the wind around guiding her snowballs making them colder. I looked at the 3 of them confused as the all huddled for a few seconds before firing more snowballs at me, a lot of them missed me but hit my catapult and soldiers making them break. Suddenly I felt the ground beneath me start to shift, my body was sinking down to the ice floor whilst I started seeing my destroyed soldiers and catapults rising up higher. Trying to melt the snow around me I felt the cold breeze as in an instant the snow around me froze around making me stuck, all that remained outside the snow was my now freezing head. “Ok Jamie, game over, you loses” Dad shouted walking up to me as they kept piling more snow on me whilst I tried to melt it. “Ok, ok get me out of here, I’m freezing” I said letting my fiery body melt the snow, floating out the hole I dispersed my fiery dragon and spread out all the snow evenly so it looked the same as when we arrived.
“You only won because someone joined your team” I said jokingly causing the three of them to laugh. “Jamie” I said holding my hand out to shake the girls hand that joined my parents side “Kathleen, and I know who you are, my father talks about you all the time” she said making me curious “Really, do I know your father?” I asked curiously as she stepped back making her way towards the restaurant as several men stood outside “You don’t but you will” she said confidently stepping back into the restaurant, her attempt to be mysterious was very good and even knowing she said it on purpose I couldn’t help but want to chase after her. Putting it to the back of my mind I lifted myself and my parents out of the ground landing us on my visible force field, leading us to the door we came in through.
Back at home we all got changed into our comfy clothing before sitting down in the lounge with the TV on low just talking about my school life. We were sat there for hours and I talked about teachers, about girls, about things I had done. Going up to bed I was again surprised at how small my room was, with Prince with me on my bed there was very little room to move but I didn’t mind, prince coiled around my legs, her head just above mine as I his body laced across my a few times before he head rest above mine, sure enough I was pinned by Prince but he was warm and I didn’t care.
Waking up the next day, I checked my parents’ bedroom to wake them up only to find it empty. Teleporting down the stairs the kitchen was empty too as was the lounge and the garden, getting slightly worried now I heard some banging coming from beneath me. Quickly closing the front door I raced down their half expecting to find dark mages or Lucifer but instead I found my parents both trapped under a mountain of junk “Do you guys need a hand” I asked sitting on the stair looking at them whilst mum was pinned by a load of camping gear and dad under a couple of canoes. Using my energy talent I floated everything off them allowing them to get out and stand back up, dusting themselves of and checking for dirt. “We need the camping gear Jamie please” mum said watching me float everything camping related to one side then floating everything back packing it tightly against the wall so it didn’t fall. “Were going camping?” I asked excitedly hoping to make some cool stuff while we were out there. “Yes, I presume you have plans to meet your friends over the holiday which is fine, seeing as you can teleport you can just whiz off whenever” mum said looking at me with one of those caring smile but then a rather mischievous smile to dad. “Oh god” I said suddenly understanding the look hearing both parents laugh at my outburst. “You still have to find your girl, I’ve found mine” Dad said justifying himself but only making it worse “Lalalalalala” I shouted sarcasticly holding my hands to my ears running back up the stairs half embarrassing myself half mocking them, my actions only causing them to laugh more my mum giving dad a kiss once I was gone from sight.
They came up about 20minutes later, arms full of camping equipment which I helped load into the car for them. Driving away from the house mum and dad were both talking about general stuff to do with work and the house, family members and friends all of which I cared little for and understood less. We drove for about an hour before ending up in the Forest, parking the car I grew some bushes around it so it was hidden, tall enough to mask the car from any onlooker. Taking our stuff out of the car we walked for a few miles into forest, dad had placed a GPS point on the car so we knew where to find it again, Prince was happily slithering around even though he could take down any small prey here, he was like me only going for the bad people hunting mice or rats and fox’s if he was really hungry. Finding a collection of tree with a thick canopy we decided to set up camp, setting up their tent with magic my parents calmly stepped inside. Following them in I was surprised at the vast space in side for a 1 man tent it was huge on the inside, way larger than what it looked like from the outside, inside it had 3 large bedrooms, a lounge and dining room area and even a kitchen “Cheats” I said jokingly to my parents checking out the tent making them laugh “Magic tent, did you really think we were going to sleep in a dingy 1 man tent together” dad said laughing whilst mum giggled “I guess not, anyway you unpack I’m going to start building” I said pulling out two sunglasses handing them one each “What are these for, were not some sort of bad ass celeb” mum said putting them down “You’re going to need them if you want to be able to see” I said floating them onto her face whilst dad put his on by himself.
Stepping outside I poured my power into my healing, my body getting brighter and brighter as even through the slight gap to enter the tent I was lighting up the tent and they couldn’t see outside, it was just a white light shining in. Kneeling down to the ground I planted my hands into the ground, my parents rushing out the tent to watch me seeing nothing by a source of bright white light, too bright to even see anything around them. Growing the ground I grew trees and thick grass, I made a few chairs and benches as well as making the area look like a jungle rather than the English forest. Finding loads of rocks indenting the earth I used my telekinesis to lift them up floating them over as I made a ring for a fire and a spit roast made from two trees.
Finally lowering my output, I also made a tree house for myself just to show. My brightness starting to dim as my parents could finally un-shield their eyes to look at me, “Oh wow” Mum said looking around at the surrounding area as I completely transformed it. “I hope you like it” I said snapped the branch of the tree allowing it to spin around on the spit roast frame, with my work done I calmly took a seat on my chair leaving them the bench which they quickly sat on snuggling up together whilst I lit the fire in the stone circle I made, keeping a fireproof force field around the wooden spit roast I kept that from burning leaving us with a glowing fire keeping us warm.
“Hey dad... how did you ask out mum?” I asked curiously looking to him while they both smiled “You having idea problems?” he asked smiling looking over at me whilst mum was resting her head on his shoulder “I don’t know, I mean there are a few girls that I know like me but only Jess seems normal, all the others just act desperate like they want to date me to better their own lives” I said sadly looking into the fire whilst dad stuttered to find the right words “Which girls do you like?” mum asked quickly covering for dad lifting her head up to look at me. “Jess is nice, she’s fun and I know she likes me” I said making Jess’s face in the fire “But there’s also Summer who is really beautiful, there the only two that don’t act weird around me and I don’t know what to do” I said hearing dad laugh “You don’t chose the girl, you will just know which is the girl for you, but if you only like Summer for her looks then it’s not going to be a very good relationship, Jess is a nice girl if you’re talking about Jess Hail” Dad said whilst I nodded in reply.
“But I don’t want to date Jess just because she the only girl who doesn’t treat me differently because of my power, I’m mean even the teachers stutter around me trying to word their sentences right to not upset me” I said hearing my parent laugh as a response to my comment. “Look we can’t tell you who to date, but as long as you don’t string girls along or be mean to them were all for you dating whoever you like” mum said calmly giving me another of her famous motherly smiles. “Ok well I gave Jess some flowers so I think I might already be stringing her along, so what should I do about that?” I asked nervously looking to see the disappointment in their face “Why did you give her flowers?” dad asked calmly putting me at ease slightly “We were bending plants to our will in life class, I handed out the things I made to the girls seeing as we only had rose’s to use and the only topic with roses is love and I didn’t really want to keep all these roses. So I made a stag similar to the one in the restaurant for my professor a few hearts and words made with stems then a bouquet just like in the restaurant which I put on her bed growing it move so it weaved around her bed frame. I only did it because after I had killed that man I was a bit of a recluse for a week I shut everybody out even jess and I felt bad for that” I explained to them hoping they would understand “Well ok then, well all you can do is act normal, spend time with her so you friendly but if you want to date her spend time with just her or if you want to try and remain friends go as a group, so your with her but you with other people so it eliminates the whole romantic dates aspect of being together” dad said rather confidently like he had some experience with this.
“Anyway, were going to head to bed, we have a room set up for you if your tree house gets cold” mum said dragging dad off into the tent whilst I sat on my chair with Prince coiling around the stand of my seat and up around my shoulders. “If you want, I could spy on Jess. You can easily keep my invisible for a while” Prince said in my ear making me chuckle “Thanks Prince, parents give boring advice, at least I can count on your to have some fun ideas” I said laughing before climbing up into my tree house, resting in my hammock with prince following me up sleeping on the branches above me. Creating a hole in the canopy it was nice to lie there looking up at the stairs, being miles away from anywhere the night sky was clear and beauty; I could several constellations whilst prince pointed out a few shooting stars.
Waking up bright and early in the morning I was surprised at how cold it was, the fire outside was out and my body heat was dropped due to the fact I wasn’t heating myself up with my power. Climbing out of my tree house, I spotted Prince Slither through the thick grass, his stomach larger than before which I guessed was now full of rats and mice who foolishly came to the fire for warmth.
“What are we doing today?” I asked heading into my parent’s room finding them both cooking a large breakfast “Good morning to you too, were going to relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the forest” Dad said calmly making me smile before sitting down for some food.
Eating breakfast we talked a bit more about my dating situation as well as what this ball was going to be like. “It’s the Winter’s Eve Ball, all the girls obsess over it and because of your title as world’s strongest you will be expected to attend and to dance, so you better find a date” dad said in his ever reassuring voice. “Ok, well I’m going to go to Bacra and check out the stores my last couple of visits there have been somewhat rushed” I told them confidently, finishing the last of my food before teleporting out of the tent and into the middle of the great hall in Bacra.
It was crazy looking around with more time to spare, I saw people walking all bunched up together which was normal but I could also see street vendors and circus acts lining the streets, people wore a mass range of robes going from tattered and old to very slick and formal. It appeared dad was right about a few things, although everybody robes people tried to be unique with their shoes and hair, girl’s hair was all well kept and it was easy to guess there was a big market for hair stylists. The shoes were also pretty different although lots of people wore boots under their robes some were wearing trainers or even heels on the girls. “Must be a nightmare to walk on these cobbles in heels” I thought putting it in the back of my mind before stepping out of the hall on the edge of the bustling crowd.
I felt like a mouse, a mouse trying to cross a jam packed motorway that was still moving at 30mph. Trying to think of a way around it I created a set of force field steps going up before creating a visible force field path for myself. I attracted a bit of attention seeing this young boy walk about a foot above everybody’s head wearing my normal human clothes. Walking down the street more and more people stared at me curiously watching me walk above the crowds, it was a bit unsettling at first but I guessed I had to get used to it “You boy, get down from their” an old man said forcefully sending a bit of earth flying up from the ground hitting my force field shattering it. The resulting effect made me dropped to the ground the people around me trampling all over me as I heard people laughing.
“Enough” I roared sending a force field about 5meters wide around me sending people flying whilst I slowly stood up healing up my few bruised muscles before looking at the old man who was in a bundle of people trying to untangle themselves. “You should more considerate towards other people, you do not just trample somebody because he’s in your way” I shouted seeing the people stopping and staring at me “Buzz of kid, you know nothing of our way of life” a voice said, the same one that made me fall in a first place “And you know nothing of who you’re dealing with” I roared back finding a body to the voice floating him out of the crowd in to the open space “What is your name?” I said firmly flipping him upside down as I watched all the blood rush to his head “Put me down or your will be sorry” he said trying to be forceful but only made me laugh. “Sorry huh, what are you 9... 10 spikes” I said jokingly laughing at him “I’m 12 and 2minutes your insolent child” he spat at me making my chuckle “Well how cute... my name is Jamie Dovell I have 45 spikes to 80 minutes and the current world’s strongest mage” I said seeing his face attempt to pale but the redness from the blood made him go slightly pink. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to offend you” he said begging for forgiveness as I rolled my eyes. “Pathetic excuse for a mage, if you have reason to harm me follow it through. If you have no reason then you’re just a bully and bullies deserved to be punished” I said taking hold my force field around his arm spinning his body rather fast before walking off.
People’s eyes watched me nervously, their gaze flicking between me and the spinning man. Reaching a corner I clicked my fingers at head level to show that I was doing something, their gaze going back to the old man as my force field vanished dropping him on the floor with quiet a thump.
“That was a bit mean” a familiar voice said to the side of me, turning I saw Kathleen sat down in a café wearing some rather stylish robes, not down to her feet like some this one stopped at her thighs, it almost looked like a summer dress if it wasn’t for the top half of the robe “Kathleen” I said a small smile creeping across my face seeing her before noticing the 4 mages around her. “So, I see somebody still needs a babysitter or four” I mocked jokingly seeing her scowl slightly not liking the fact she was followed by these 4 mages everywhere. “Dad thinks I’m going to get captured like some damsel in distress, just two more years and I will be taught to teleport and then I will be fine, no more guards” she said cheering herself up making me chuckle “Easy, I learnt that at home before I even started school” I said seeing her jaw drop “Well were not all as powerful as you” she said taking a sip of her drink as I teleported from my stood position into the chair next to her seeing her jump in shock before giggling. “Energy talent is lots of fun” I said sitting back as the guards looked confused to see me inside their little 4 man shield around Kathleen “I know, I can create small force fields but this is my first year in Lady P’s” she said making me smile “What’s it like there, I heard that this discourage power and go for more beauty and elegance” I asked seeing her smile “That’s but it’s not all like that, but there are some things schools do not share and we have our secrets” she said giggling intriguing me a great deal. “Well what can you do with your energy power?” I asked calmly changing topic but reminding myself to look into what she meant at another time. “Small amounts of telekinesis and probably medium sized force fields” she said proudly finishing her drink. “Do you mind I ask how strong you are” I asked hopefully watching her stand up whilst she paid for the drinks she had “9 Spikes” she said sounding proud of her capabilities. “9, then you should be able to teleport easily” I said looking up at her as she walked away from the table with her guards, slowly getting up from my seat I teleported directing into the middle of the 4 guards next to Kathleen how just giggled at me whilst I walked with her “I don’t think your babysitters are very good, I could of teleported you away by now” I said jokingly hearing a few of them mutter behind me. Taking my fun to a new level I created a copy of myself startling Kathleen who just looked at me amazed, creating more and more copies soon there was about 12 of me all bustling around. Making 3 of me distract the four guards I teleported Kathleen away up onto the roof of a building in Bacra “Ugh what did you do to me” she groaned clutching her stomach as I helped her up from her knees “Teleported. You body will get used to it and you will no longer feel it after a while, a bit like finding your sea legs” I said happily seeing her stand up straight taking a few deep breaths as we watched the guards push the copies of me off.
Dispersing my copies they all started looking around panicking as they could no longer see Kathleen “Now we have some time together, how about I teach you to teleport” I offered hopefully seeing her grin excitedly at my offer. “Now you have to feel your energy power, feel it inside yourself, teleporting is a sudden burst of your power so you have to feel it build up then picture yourself in another location and with that picture in your mind push your energy out” I said calmly seeing her nod. “Picture yourself on the next roof” I told her, watching her focus on the next roof then instantly disappear, looking to the roof I spotted her clutching her stomach with a huge grin on her face “There, now you just have to practice, after a while picturing things becomes easier and the pain will lessen every time” I explained to Kathleen teleporting next to her my stomach feeling fine after excessive use of my power.
“Anyway, I will leave you to it, have fun” I said leaving her to practice as I teleported away into the city. Walking the streets on the ground I checked out a few of the stores some stores had nice robes in the window and I did almost feel out of place wearing human clothes. Walking the streets for a few hours I decided to head back to the camp site teleporting inside my tree house in a flash, “I wondered when you were coming back” mum said chirpily looking to be in a great mood. “Yeah just roaming around Bacra nothing really interesting going on, I still don’t understand why people act like you’re not there when walking through the streets” “Just ignore them dear” mum said calmly relaxing me slightly, sitting down on the chair I made I created a fire in the pit causing dad to come out from his tent with two blankets throwing me one then wrapping the other around himself and mum as they took the bench. “So what are you plans for the week?” Dad asked looking at me as I stared into the fire “Bacra tomorrow with the guys then again on Wednesday with Jess and the girls” I explained not looking from the fire, watching every flicker and spark happen without my aid, examining this natural fire so I could make my own just as natural. “Well, were going to Bacra as well tomorrow, to pick up some more things, also Bethany and Jess are coming to stay out here with us” Dad said smiling giving me butterflies in my stomach. “Here is some money to spend tomorrow, just don’t waste it” Mum said handing me a pouch with about 40 coins and a roll of notes. “How much is there” I asked curiously looking up at her “Enough for you to buy something you like the look of” she said before heading back into the tent with dad. Opening up the pouch I counted it all finding 37 identical coins and a roll of notes adding up to 840; even if it was similar to human money £840 was a lot of money.
Waking up on Monday, I waited until 10 before making my way to Bacra. Dad said that Jess would be hear by 6pm and I should be back by then, Watching them leave through the wooden door they brought I sat around making some more benches as well as growing my tree house out making it look very awesome. As 9:45 rolled around I teleported into Bacra instantly landing inside the Great hall and finding Tommy and Danny already there waiting “Hey guys” I said quickly teleporting up to them whilst they sat on the steps watching the doors into the great hall “Hey Jamie” Tommy said happy to see me, both boys standing up expecting to see nobody else arrive.
Creating the visible force field we walked above the crowds, looking down at the shops and the people we saw from above, Tommy and Danny was have great fun no longer getting barged and trampled by the ongoing rampage of mages in tough boots. “Left Jamie, go left” Danny said following my path as I lead them down into the empty street, dropping my path down into steps we were soon walking along the normal ground. Heading into Green Street the place was alive with noise of various tones; we could hear the shouts of girlish screams and that of boys cheering as well as the noises coming from the stores. Heading into a Café we each bought a drink, I decided on a mug of Bingleberry mead; although completely un-alcoholic it was sweet and fizzy, and frankly rather delicious, Tommy and Danny both drank Roman Latte’s, they looked awesome the magic in the drink made the foam turn 3D two little foam figures acting out a fight sequence before dropping into the drink.
