Doors to Destiny

All Rights Reserved ©


Eliana and Jack can teleport. But they can't control it. When they open doors, they sometimes are just gone. They need to learn to deal with it before someone finds out what they can do. On their way to go get some coffee to warm them up, they didn’t recognize their surroundings. Looking around, Ellie didn’t notice anything too weird, until she saw some people. Everyone had green skin. If she’d taken a black and white photo, she wouldn’t have noticed anything off, but they were green. “Jack. Jack? Are you seeing this? Is this real?” Ellie was frantically turning around, wondering if this was normal here. But it can’t be. We would’ve learned about it. Someone would’ve mentioned it. “You mean that everyone’s green except,” he paused and glanced down at his arm, “for us?” “No, I meant there’s a really pretty leaf over there,” Eliana said, voice dripping with sarcasm. “Yes, that’s what I meant!” She was pulling on her hair, fidgeting with her ring, doing anything to occupy her hands.

Chapter 1


Jack walked to his appointment, dreading talking to the doctor. He didn’t want to interact, he didn’t want to answer questions about how his anxiety had been, he didn’t want to be here at all. He pushed up his glasses on his nose, brushed his hair out of his face, and opened the door.


As Eliana walked home, she thought about her day. She’d gotten a book from the library that she’d wanted to read for years. Eliana had gotten her homework done, and managed to draw something. Not something good, but it was something. A broken mirror, black and white, with a few bright red roses on it. She paused, and took a deep breath of the crisp spring air She decided to go to the park and read. Eliana pulled out Eliza and Her Monsters. She pushed her loose, light brown curls away from her face, and opened the book.


He stared at the ground after checking in, trying to avoid looking at the blindingly white walls, hoping that this would be an easy appointment. As he stepped through, he thought he felt the temperature change. He glanced up. Not again. Jack immediately heard the din of a crowd of people in a coffee shop. He turned around, seeing signs for a place in town that he knew. How am I going to explain this?

He got a coffee to try to relax, and started back towards the office. Jack opened the door, walked in, and walked right back out. I’ll just tell my parents I freaked out and left. In the cool spring morning, he enjoyed the steaming coffee, and walked slowly so he could take pictures of trees, birds, anything he found.


Eliana looked up, as it was getting darker. She looked down at her watch, noticing that it was getting late, and jumped up to go home. I’m going to be late, they’re going to be there before me. She ran most of the way there, until she could see her house, and see that she had beaten her parents in the race home that only she was aware of.

She opened the door, dropped off her bag, and took the stairs two at a time up to her room. She laid down on her back, her pale brown curls spreading out behind her like a halo, and took a deep breath. Everything will be okay. It’s not like she’d meant to leave, but she was going into the kitchen, and ended up in the library, so she decided to relax for the day.


He walked in the door, waiting for his parents to notice. “Hey, mom, I’m sorry, but I couldn’t handle the doctor’s today.” he said, when she finally looked up from the television.

“That’s fine, honey, at least you tried.”

“Thanks, mom. I’ll make you some dinner.” He walked into the kitchen, and started cooking. No one noticed anything’s wrong. I can do this.
