Chapter 1: The Rose and the Clock

Part one: The Eye that Eradicated Harmony (The Eye)

It was a normal day in her hometown; the city thriving, the skies blue, and the people living life. This young girl, with pink hair, gentle yet naive and shy, has been through many adventures lately. She is on her way to school, but she wasn't alone. Her name is Madoka Kaname.

"Hey! Madoka!" someone shouted from behind.

She turns her head to look at the oncoming girl.

"Sayaka!" She responded.

Her devoted friend, Sayaka has been her best friend for as long as she can remember. Tomboyish, confident, and self-assertive, she too been through adventures with Madoka.

"This is our last day of school, can you believe it?," she asked in excitement.

"I know. We can now enjoy the summer," Madoka sighs. "but there's something bothering me."

"Like what?"

"Like... it's as if something is watching us."

An unknown figure watches them from the trees. He nods his head on side and then quickly disappears. Madoka shakes off that ominous feeling.

"It must be nothing, I'm sorry."

"We'll be fine. Let's just enjoy our final day."

They both walk off to Mitakihara Middle School.

At the end of school they went to the cafe for a treat. Something has been bothering Madoka, a recent dream. The experience felt strange: a knight, an unknown virus, a crumbling tower, and an ominous eye. It was mysterious, as if the fantasy was reality.

"Sayaka?" Madoka asked.

"Hmm..? What is it?"

"There's been a dream I want to ask about-"

"I think we've spoke about your dreams before."

"Actually, it has to do with... with..."

"...With?"

Suddenly, another girl approaches them, holding a tray and some food. She seems shy like Madoka, with dark hair, pigtails, and red glasses. Madoka is surprised to notice it was another friend she knows

"Homura?"

"Hello, Madoka," She greeted, "Enjoying your time?"

Sayaka take a sip of her soda and smiles.

"We just got out of school," Madoka answered, "Where were you?"

"I had to deal with returning books. It was quite a long line, really. Then I had to visit the doctor for an appointment, and when returning to my apartment I had to-""

Sayaka and Homura chatted for a bit about their plans for the summer. Madoka was still concerned of her dream, but for now she put it aside. She now thought of another thing she remembered. So she took out from her bag a gem in the shape of an egg and showed it to Sayaka and Homura.

"Girls, remember this?"

The two look at it and laughed. They took their egg-shaped gems from their bags.

"Why wouldn't we remember?" Sayaka laughed.

"We'll never forget about that time," Homura added.

Madoka gave a thankful smile to her friends.

The mysterious figure appears near a window, watching them. As the sunsets, a mysterious ripple disrupts the cloud movements. Somewhere in the outskirts of the city, a knight watches the view, breathing heavily. He disappears.
