My Ranking Points
Festus here to bring you Chapter One of Child of Balance!
Tonight, two of the kids here in the town will be taken away by the School Master. Of course, the adults have locked us kids in our own rooms, which is really stupid because that never stopped him before. While the adults are busy scouting the town and the forest for any signs of the School Master, us kids here in the orphanage were huddled together and were all talking about random things.
Me? I sat alone in the corner, watching everything. I don’t belong. I never did.
I am Evak Cato Adrasteia. In case you have missed that tiny piece of information above there, I am an orphan and I don’t need your pity. They’re useless to me.
My ears perked up as I heard my name being mentioned in one of the conversations happening. I scooted closer and eavesdropped.
“Definitely…Cato…Evil…” Ah, they’re doing it again. Every time the School Master comes, the kids bet on who will be taken away.
Apparently, i’m going to the School for Evil. Really. Just kill one butterfly and the others suddenly you as evil. Normally, kids would be upset if you call them evil. I would be upset too, but then I remember that I don’t care. Pros of being apathetic.
I stood up and walked to the bathroom, the only place where I could get some peace and quiet.
Terrible idea to choose to be alone right now.
As soon as I shut the door, the lights bean to flicker and the kids started screaming. I winced and hesitantly opened the door to see what was going on. Standing a few feet away from me, a creature loomed above one of the girls. I made the mistake of stepping forward, the floorboards creaked and now, its attention was on me.
For once, I cursed out loud. The monster charged at me and threw me against the wall. My vision started to blur. I made a mental note to not curse out loud or you’ll be knocked out by a monster. Then I passed out.
|To be continued…|
Don’t be like Cato who curses out loud. You read what happened to him. He got KO’d by something.
Wait… Festus means happy in latin. Are you SERIOUSLY gonna travel the world on happy the dragon?
Interesting ! Btw your name reminds me alot about Leo in the Heroes of Olympus 🙂
