She knelt on the sidewalk, not sure where life would take her, now that her home was destroyed.
Tears streamed down her face. She was here, in Arlek, all by herself. As far as she knew, only the monsters -Dragons- lived here. She stood up, knowing that crying would do her no good and sniffed. Telene was 14 years old, and had been born in Arlek. The sky was dark, and she ran toward another fallen down building, as the rain began to poor down on her red hair. She opened the door that was only attached by one hinge, and entered cautiously. She heard footsteps and froze.
It is a dragon? Or a haunted house?? She wondered, her eyes darting from one dark corner to the next, without her head moving. She thought she saw something in a far corner and gasped. A girl walked out of the corner, a sword in her left hand.
“H-how did you find this p-place?” She asked, apparently as frightened as Telene.
“I was looking for cover from the rain.” She said, doubtful now that it would keep our the rain. She glanced to where the rain had come through the ceiling. “What’s your name?” She asked the blonde that had now set the sword on the table.
“My name is Keila. I came here to see my brother, but I can’t find him…and everything is destroyed. Did you just get here too? I hear there are monsters on the island, is that true? I hear they’re vicious, is THAT true??” She spoke quickly, not giving Telene time to answer.
“Yes, the town was destroyed, no I’ve been here for years. There…are supposedly monsters on the island, but I’ve never ever seen one, and I’ve been here for 14 years. …I don’t know if they’re vicious, since I’ve never even seen one. I can help you find your brother if you’d like!” She offered the last more for herself to have company rather than to be nice.
“Sure! But first I have to put my hair up.” Keila pulled her hair back and walked to a mirror in the room. It was very short, and she had to lean down to look into it. Telene walked toward her and also leaned down to see in the mirror, but it was skinny too. She bumped Keila on accident, and she fell against the mirror. Or at least, she should have. But instead she just…vanished. Telene gasped in horror! “Keila..??? Keila!?! Where….where are you?” She said, her voice just a croak now. She inspected the mirror more closely, then all the sudden was pulled through by a large hand! Wait, through? Not into? That’s weird, She thought. She woke up on a side walk, or road, with glass scattered around her. This was really strange. Then she heard an excited whooooo! come from somewhere to her left and gently stood up, checking to make sure she was still intact.
She walked to a gate she saw and banged against it. “Hello? Is someone here?” She called rather quietly, not wanted to upset anyone who might have been there.
“Who are you!? Why are you here!!!?” A gruff voice asked. She spun around and saw a weird looking fuzzy creature crawl out of a tree. It looked like a ferrytale. (xD) The creature was actually just a man with a deer skin over him. Or at least, it appeared to be a deer skin. THe man was shorter than her, but had long arms. “I…I’m Telene. I’m not sure why I’m here.” She said shakily. It’s cold in… She started thinking, then realized she didn’t even know where she really was. She didn’t think she was still in Arlek.
“Come with me!! I don’t do stuff with trespassers!” He huffed, grabbing her arm tightly.
“No! Please let me go! I want to go back to Arlek!” She yelled desperately. Truthfully, she didn’t really want to go to Arlek again, but she wanted to be anywhere but here. Why ever she said it, it got the man’s attention.
“Arlek?” He asked, surprised. She nodded quickly, then slowed the movement, thinking maybe telling him that’s where she came from was a bad idea.
“Telene!! Telene, it’s me, Keila!!” She heard a voice yell. She spun around again.
“Keila!! Where are we!!??” She asked quickly, glancing behind her to make sure the man wasn’t any closer.
Keila looked confused, “I don’t know. But guess what! I found my brother!! He lives here!!” She exclaimed, her face lighting up with joy. She stepped aside to show a boy a few years older than herself. He had floppy blond hair, and looked much like her.
“Hi. I’m Taniel. But everyone calls me Tani” He said, shaking her hand. He had a crooked grin, and thick eyebrows. You were wondering how you got here? And where this is? Well, this is Jalenule. And you got here..cause I pulled you through! Mirrors are passages to fantastic worlds guarded by creatures called Ferrymen.” He told her.
“This-” He explained further, motioning to the man who had stopped her earlier. “is A ferry man called Itak. Itak, this is….Telene, Telene, Itak!” He said excitedly. “And this is my sister-” He continued, giving Keila a sideways hug, “Keila!”
“How’s Ula doing these days?! Have you kept her good and fed?!” Keila asked happily. Telene’s eyebrows narrowed.
“Who is Ula? Keila, have you been her before!?” She asked, wishing that she just knew what was going on more.
“Yeah! I didn’t mention that? Yes, I sort of live here. Ula is my pet dragon!!” She smiled widely.
“But you were wondering if there were ‘vicious beasts’ and ‘monsters’ on the island! How could you…” Telene made an uncertain gesture with her hand at the end of the sentence.
“I didn’t want you to know about it. Not until I knew it was safe. And I didn’t think Tani would still be here.” Keila explained, getting impatient to go see Ula.
“Oh, and Ula is fine! She’s been doin’ real good lately!” Tani told Keila. Then he whistled loudly. Two dragons flew in from the forest and down to where they stood. Telene tensed up and took a few paces back. But Keila’s voice encouraged her. “It’s alright! They won’t hurt you! Just go pet on ’em. They’re nice.”
She had been there for about a week and was getting pretty used to things. There was nothing left in Arlek for her, so she had just stayed in Jalenule. She sat on a tree trunk bridge, reading a boring book. All the sudden she felt a warm breath on the back of her neck. “Ula, is that you? You silly girl.” She turned around slightly and saw that it was Ula and another Dragon. “who is this with you, Ula? A friend.” The other dragon had long curly things on the back of its neck and was a dark brown and white color. Ula moved out of the way and Telene turned completely around to face the dragon. “Hi.” She asked and said at the same time. It sniffed her fingers then sneezed. She giggled, thinking it was funny that dragons would sneeze. It sat down and stared enthusiastically at her. Then it scooted closer as she started to read her book, and she raised an eyebrow at it. It hurredly looked away, then sneaked another look at her book when she looked toward it. This went of for a while until the dragon fell asleep.
“I think I’ll name you Joli.” She said, quietly stroking it. She was going to like living here. She just knew it.
