Hot & Cold

By KiwiiWorld

Action / Fantasy

Two small mistakes

Ruby sat alone.Behind the electrical shield. She had her head in her hands."Urg!" She screamed.
"Silence you little brat!" A big orange and red striped creature spoke.
Ruby looked at the creature. "Let me out!" She shouted. The creature just laughed as it left.
Ruby sat down again. And everything had been so perfect this morning.

The sun was shining. Ruby woke up. Next to her, slept her wonderfull girlfriend Sapphire.
Ruby was one of the Crystal Gems.So were Sapphire.
Ruby were a red gemstone, her abilities were shapeshifting, and she could also bring her weapon out, which were a magical boxing glove.Her body were hot, and not in a sexy way, but really hot. If she got angry, she could set things on fire.This allowed her to be able to swim in boiling water, and also lava.
Sapphire was a blue gemstone. Beatifull light blue hair which covered her one eye, and a blue princesse like dress. Her abilities were shapeshifting, future vision, and she could freeze an entire room.She were a very calm gem, which hardly got angry, unlike Ruby.
Normally Gems didn't need to sleep, but Ruby enjoyed doing it sometimes, especially after battling monsters.
The crystal gems were a tiny group of gems, who a long, long time ago came to earth. They protected earth during a giant war with their homeworld.
Rose Quartz, the leader of the crystal gems, were the one wanting to stay, she had fallen in love with earth.She loved it, and she wanted to stay and protect it from danger which homeworld could send, trying to destroy it.
The others had seen her love for earth, and desided to stay and help her.
Sapphire woke up."Good morning Ruby" she said with a very calm and emotionless voice.
"Good morning sapphie, slept well?" Ruby held around Sapphire.
Sapphire nodded, and smiled.
The warp pad started glowing.Pearl came back, holding a floating bubble with something that looked like a broken gem inside it. "I found this in one of the other worlds" She spoke serious.
The warp pad was a big, round, magical portal platform standing in the middle of the room.They had built a secret hideout, which were actually some sort of cave inside a mountain, near the beach. Behind the warp pad there was a giant, white door with four small dots on it.Each dot had its own colour.
Each crystal gem had their own colour and the white door led to their own room which suited each of their own personalities.
Pearl looked at Ruby and Sapphire."Ruby, Sapphire!?" She said shocked.Ruby looked at Sapphire."Yea we thought it would be kind of interesting to spend one day, unfused" She replied, rubbing the back of her head.
"What is that inside your bubble?" Sapphire asked.
Pearl explained she had found a broken gem piece.
Ruby turned her head."Wh-what!?" She asked shocked.Pearl looked sad at the bubble.
"I found it in the kindergarten" She replied. Ruby looked angry at the bubble.
Sapphire put her hand on her shoulder."We couldn't have known this" She spoke calmly.
"I thought we had found every last piece, we have to go back and look for the rest!" She almost shouted.
"No, Pearl found one piece only, there is no reason for us to go back, not today at least" Another voice spoke.
It was Rose Quartz.She had come out of her room.
She was a tall gem, with big pink hair, and she was wearing a white wedding dress.On her stomach, her gem was placed. Her abilities were shapeshifting, all gems could shapeshift, healing and her gems weapon were a shield.
Pearl turned around."I'll send this bubble back to the others" She said.
"Were's Amethyst?" Rose asked looking around.Suddenly a tiny, purple gem jumped down on her head from above.
"Here i am!" She giggled.
Amethyst were a purple gemstone, and she were the youngest.She wore a purple top, with black tights and white boots, her hair was short and had a light purple colour.
Her gem were placed on her chest, and her abilities were shapeshifting, spin attack and her weapon were a whip.
Rose placed her on the floor.
"There you are" She smiled.
"Ruby you're not fused with Sapphire, have something happend?" Amethyst looked at Ruby.
Ruby explained that they wanted to try one day unfused, just to see the difference.
Gems could fuse with others gems. It made them turn into another gem.
They got stronger that way, and could be very useful during battle against tough gems.But fusion were a serious thing, and it meant a lot to the gems. Besides fusion shouldn't be done with anyone, one wrong fuse could go out of hand, in a pretty bad and dangerous way.
Ruby and Sapphire were so perfect for each other, they normally stayed fused the whole time. Their fusion were Garnet.They normally didn't unfuse, cause they couldn't stand it, but this time they wanted to try it out, just to see the difference.
Amethyst shapeshifted into an owl."Imma fly around the beach for a while, call me if something happens!" She said and flew off.
"Amethyst, wait you can't just-" Pearl yelled after her.Rose put her hand on Pearls shoulder."Let her fly, she is still young, let her have some fun" She said with a smile.
Pearl looked into Rose's eyes."You're right, she shouldn't be dragged into too much danger, especially when it's not necessary"
Ruby went outside, and looked up at the sky.The sun was shining and the waves were splashing onto the beach. Sapphire went after her.
"It's a beatifull day today" She said.Ruby nodded.
Pearl looked at Rose.
"I know you said we shouldn't go back, but i'll return to the kindergarten and look around, just in case" She said befor she jumped onto the warp pad and disapeared.
Rose looked after her as she disappeared.She let out a big sigh.
Ruby turned her head.
"She worries too much" Ruby said.
Sapphire looked at Ruby."She is Pearl, she has been through a lot" She spoke.
Ruby sat down. "So have we Sapphi, we were there as well you know" She replied.
Sapphi were Ruby's nickname on Sapphire.
Rose sighed again. "I just wished she could calm down a little bit, and just sit down and enjoy the peace" She muttered.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written.

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace.
