Chapter 1 Test to Party


"I did it, I did it!" Saige ran freely through the halls of Dispatch a huge smile on her face as she practically jumped, cartwheeled, and dodged reapers who just happened to be in her way. They bowed in her direction once they realized who she was but Saige didn't notice the girl was on a mission to find her best friend and to tell him the good news before her parents' announced it. Since her parents were the rulers of the realm no news or gossip escaped them obviously when she reached them they would be aware of the news. The reaper rolled her eyes vividly spotting her best friend cruzing on his lawn mower.

"Ronald, Ronald I passed my field test with flying colors!" Saige handed the reaper her paper and smiled brightly." Do you know what this means?" he asked." Yeah now I can join you as a field agent or do some other occupation to benefit our realm!" she answered also breathless from running." No that means the party is on! "He yelled immediately getting a punch in the arm by the girl." Is that all you care about Knox?" He laughed rubbing his arm. Saige's parents had promised that if she successfully passed her test then the reaper could have her party. Her dream had become a reality and tonight they would celebrate.

"Anyway since the party is a go am I invited?" Saige laughed punching his arm again." Of course numskull it wouldn't be a party without the great Ronald Knox but my sister said if you attempt to flirt with her again she will gut like a fish and even though she's a record-keeper she can still do it." Ronald gulped nodding that he understood not to get on Melda's bad side." Well I have to go see ya tonight!" Saige yelled running to the other side of the building to the library where her sister was working." Melda!" the young reaper turned seeing her sister organizing a group of files while on top of a ladder. The woman had short dark brown hair, yellow-green, and wore a nice dress shirt with a half inch skirt.

Melda was considered ordinary compared to other female reapers but to Saige she was the opposite there was more to her than people would believe. She was extremely intelligent, hardworking and secretly was a private tutor to many reaperlings who struggled in their studies. Saige admired her sister's kind heart but was also a little jealous too; compared to Melda she was not that smart but Saige was quick-thinking and a skilled fighter. Yet when it came to looks the girl felt that her long dark blonde hair could not compete with her sister's spunky style.

"You're having insecure thoughts again aren't you?" She heard Melda utter more to herself than to Saige." No stop reading my mind!" she yelled before Melda hushed her." Saige this is a library if you want to yell go outside." The girl huffed;" You sound like grandma right now you know that? Anyway I'll see you at home." Melda waved a good-bye as Saige walked outside to a large building that was attached to Dispatch. She sighed going inside sensing her parents had just finished another council meeting and caught a glimpse of the elders leaving their house.

"Mama, Papa!" Saige screamed running into her father's arms." There you are back so soon my youngest?" She broke from her father's embrace glaring at him viciously;" Papa I am no longer the baby Rory is since he's five." The girl said motioning to the fussy light brown haired boy in her mother's arms." And besides I'm nineteen no longer the youngest." He smiled kissing his daughter's head." Of course my little princess also we heard someone passed their test." Saige positioned her arms behind her back;" Who knows maybe I did maybe I didn't; it's a mystery." Her father chuckled also placing his hands behind his back challenging his daughter.

"What do you think Wendolyn?" The woman placed Rory down at her feet and gazed between her husband and daughter trying not to laugh at the sight." Well I think we should look at the paper Saige has in her hands Samir maybe that will hold some answers." He nodded taking the paper and gazing at it to confirm that his daughter had indeed passed her test." We were right you did pass."

Saige jumped into her father's arms hugging him tightly." So I can have my party right?" Samir looked at Wendolyn her face serious." A promise is promise dear." Samir's head buried itself into his daughter's shoulders he would probably regret the party later.
