Rosetta Rainbow and the Arts of Magic

By Paperboy Jacky All Rights Reserved ©

Adventure / Fantasy

The beginning

Magic is not discovered. Magic is founded by those who are curious enough to seek her. Because they are willing to take enormous risks to achieve their goals, they have the right to be extraordinarily powerful in exchange of spreading their magic with trusted others. Therefore, utopias are possible to create because everyone functions harmoniously as one being.

One of the most powerful wizards in history took great risks that no one dared to ask of him. Using only his human abilities, he founded Purustory, the fundamental magic to enhancing all other arts of magic by purifying the impurities everything contains. As Purustory has that ability to enhance other magics, naturally, it is the most powerful magic founded at that time.

Purustory is founded by only a mere child who proved his worth to Nature herself. As there are others who have found magic as well, they came together to form a pact to the path to the doors of utopia. Along the way, the child founded an even more powerful magic, Mysticistory, which holds the true power to all the other magics. Because it is such a risky magic, only the ones who have founded their own arts were able to adapt to only a little bit of its incredible power. Dark wizards and witches have attempted to copy this extremely powerful magic and all have failed resulting in their deaths.

The Bermuda Triangle never existed until the boy came in contact with the island in the center of the triangle known as the Island of Waterlou which is the spirit of a goddess. Her sheer energy reacted to his arcane powers creating a land where wizards and witches could practice their abilities in secret, or even live there. To many wizards and witches, this is a safe haven. To others, it is hell because they were either humans which were destroyed by the magical enchantments that created the triangle, or for the dark wizards and witches, they were hunted down because of their motive to destroy the island itself. All the dark wizards feared the boy who created the place and no one ever stood up to him. On the contrary, the good wizards and witches gained his respect and he lives in harmony with them.

This legend the boy left behind is called the Island of Waterlou Legend, one that will help future generations of wizards and witches prosper greatly.


A woman woke up with a start. She looked around her and found herself in a wooden room with enormous logs as an infrastructure. She found herself on a bed, as if she was sick and her mother was taking care of her. Beside both of her sides were sleeping patients. Despite the fact she knew she was in a hospital, the beautiful place made her feel as if she was at home. But she just remembered what had just happened. A hooded figure had murdered her mother, Blossom Rainbow.

Rosetta lived a perfectly ordinary life on Planet Earth. However, her birth was the most astounding of all births. Her mother decided to fall down the Niagara falls and give birth to Rosetta the moment she fell inside a barrel full of cushions and air. She wondered how her mother had accomplished these crazy impossible feats. In the later years, she gave birth to her little sister Lotus the year after she was sitting on an unbelievably large lotus flower while sailing across a calm river. Rosetta did not believe that ever happened yet she saw it for herself. The year after that came out Violet, born while her mother was sitting on a field of oleanders. Rosetta had to seek mental help because she couldn't believe the things that were happening. Daisy came out the year after Violet while her mother was running across a field of daisies. This caused Rosetta to accept that crazy things happen in her life. Finally came out Rue born on a mountain on a rue bed. All five sisters got along extremely well, much more than a mother could have asked for. However, Rosetta questioned what kind of person her mother was.

However, Rosetta did not anticipate that she would have children of her own at such a young age. The first two were fraternal twins. A boy and a girl, Nate and Lavender respectively. Two years later, she gave birth to duodecoquadruplets, or twenty four fraternal children named after the greek alphabet after her greek origin.

On Rosetta's eighteenth birthday, the family decided to go to Hawaii. The moment they got there, they walked in the beaches in their white wonderful light tunics that her mother sewn for them. That was when the hooded figure murdered her mother. He used... magic. That was the moment Rosetta believed in it. He used magic to split the kindhearted Blossom Rainbow into thirteen pieces then tied the family up and dangled them under a volcano. When the full moon hit exactly the top of the sky, the hooded figure dropped them into the volcano. The sisters were so mortified at the turn of events that they fainted. As for the children, they already fainted. Rosetta felt her body twist in horrible angles she did not wish for and fell into a world of nightmares. Then, she landed on a soft pillow and felt her body revert to normal, a relieving feeling she has never had before.

A knock on the door alarmed the Rosetta.

"Come in." Rosetta replied remembering her manners. A teenage boy walked in. For a short while, they observed each other's unique physical attributes. Rosetta had this odd feeling that this teenage boy was not an ordinary person. He had this extremely noticeable arcane aura that composed his body, black hair, ocean blue eyes, and a navy cloak that made up his clothing. She then realized that the boy has seen her freaking looking self, purple hair with the back tied into a rose, blue eyes, a sharp beautiful face yet looking tired, and her own clothes in which she wore a purple shirt and a thin pink dress.

Blinking at the young teenager with her blue eyes, she tried to make the best first impression she could ever make, but failed miserably. She could not take the little boy seriously. At least... she did her best to smile and that was enough to satisfy the teenage boy.

"My name is Jay." the boy replied, "Your manners are wonderful. Would you care to tell me your story of how you got here? You will be taken seriously. I promise."

Rosetta looked at the teenage boy and easily fell for his request the moment she saw his eyes. As if the arcane aura pushed her to do so. She poured out her miserable story about every radical and unseen thing she had ever saw and felt.

"Happy Birthday." Jay first answered without Rosetta telling him so, "First of all, your family are all safe. Four sisters and twenty six children, right?"

Rosetta nodded.

"So you mentioned that you were blasted from a volcano. I heard it on the news just now that there was a volcanic eruption… I'm sure that was no coincidence. We also have our ways of getting news," Jay explained, "I hope we healed your injuries well. After all, I can’t have an injured student."

"Thank you for your concern Jay and for tending to us." Rosetta answered.

"You are very welcome." Jay replied. "Any questions so far about absolutely anything?"

"Wait, did you say you can't have an injured student?" Rosetta asked, "What did you mean about that?"

"You told me a hooded figure used 'magic' to kill your mother, correct?" Jay asked and continued, "Well, we know who did that as we know magic ourselves as well. The one who murdered your mother is Lord Ryoula. He is the leader of the organization the Hell Tribe who plans to destroy all happiness and our magic. If you want to be able to defend yourself the next time we meet him, it is necessary to be equipped. You will have the protection of nature on your side as well. You will be learning good magic to combat the evil. Additionally, our island is paradise. We have absolutely every magical creature that you may want to see, like dragons, or unicorns."

"You mean you have dragons here?" Rosetta asked, "And what else do you have here?"

"I told you, we have every magical creature possible. You will find out on your own." Jay explained. "There is so much to explore Rosetta. I also have a lot of hope for you."

"Hope for me in what?" Rosetta asked, "You don't mean in learning magic, right?"

"I mean it when I wish for you to learn magic." Jay answered, "You have an extremely strong magical spirit within you. I believe we can help you tap on those resources that you have within you and use them for yourself and the good if you wish. The first magic I would like you to learn is Hydromancy."

"What’s that?" Rosetta asked once again.

"Water Magic." Jay announced. "Lessons begin this afternoon at three in the forest. I have provided a map and directions on how to get there beside your bed stand. I will be there to watch you learn. The one who will be teaching you will be my apprentice, Py."

"It sounds like a rip-off of your own name." Rosetta muttered. Jay rolled his eyes.

"My apprentice Py has a friend named Fy and By. I don't think it is unusual. And they don't have names similar to me," Jay answered. "But if you need anything, just ask the nurse."

And with that, Jay vanished out the door leaving Rosetta with only a few wisps of dark blues and light blues to see in the air.

"What a cute teenager, bossing me around. I think it might be fun to learn magic!" Rosetta giggled. She jumped out of her bed.

"I’m going to learn magic!" Rosetta shouted and jumped for joy. All the sleeping patients screamed with Rosetta, not in a good way though. The nurse nearby looked concerned.

"I’m sorry." Rosetta apologized when she heard the screams and bowed after she got on the ground to the nurse.

"Don’t worry dearie, it’s natural for you to feel excited." the nurse answered, "I would give anything to have the Leader of the Leaders personally supervising you learning magic! Or maybe teaching you magic! But him visiting this place personally is already a big honor..."

"Is he that good?" Rosetta asked quietly in a doubt.

"He is the greatest wizard of all time, the greatest!” the nurse piped, “His powers are much more powerful than the ones heard in legends."

"Wow, I’m really excited then!" Rosetta answered.

"Do you want lunch?" the nurse asked. "It will fuel you up!"

Rosetta nodded. An early lunch sounded great. Within moments, a hot piping Greek lunch arrived. It tasted so good, just like her mother's cooking, perhaps even better.


"You came earlier than I anticipated." Jay answered, "Way earlier than I anticipated. According to my time, you came two hours earlier than the given time. But knowing me, I anticipated that my anticipation may be wrong as well! So I came here just in case you thought to show up early."

Bang! Rosetta looked at a boulder that a little boy just obliterated with some water.

"I got too excited, that’s all." Rosetta answered, taking great interest at the fragments of the shattered boulder. Jay chuckled and noticed her interest and her hunger. He got up from his spot, a smaller boulder and walked in front of Rosetta. The little boy quickly followed him and hid behind his leg.

"Alright, let’s start. I told you back in the hospital I was going to make you my student." Jay told Rosetta. She nodded. At Jay's leg was a really young little boy who looked like he is seven years old. He was unbelievably adorable looking at Rosetta with his brown eyes. He too had hair like Jay's except he lacked the arcane aura around the entire body.

"Depending on how fast you learn, it will be the determining factor of how fast you can learn all the magics! Your first lesson of the day is Hydromancy, a fancy term for Water Magic. The user of Hydromancy is called a Hydromancer, do you understand?” Jay asked.

"Yes. I understand." Rosetta replied and asked, "Wait, isn't the little boy the one who is teaching me?"

Suddenly being taught magic was a little difficult for her to take in, but in the end, she managed to pull herself together. Who wouldn’t want to be supervised or maybe even taught by the greatest wizard of all time?

"Py here indeed knows extremely powerful Hydromancy." Jay explained, "And he will be teaching you whenever you are ready. I was just explaining the terms."

Rosetta nodded.

"I sense a strong magical aura within you." Jay replied. "I believe you should be able to learn magic rather fast too."

Jay looked at Py.

"Let me explain how you get your magical energy from within. All the elemental magics require energy within you. You basically do that with Water Magic," Py explained. "You need to focus energy in a certain spot in your body, and it is from your hands."

Rosetta felt as she couldn't comprehend such a thing yet. Py seemed to notice.

"You must focus! Gather your energy from within your body and concentrate it in your hands." Py explained.

Rosetta had a feeling in her body and she directed that feeling into her hands.

"Jay, can you perhaps elaborate on what Py said?" Rosetta asked. Jay nodded.

"We are one with nature." Jay explained, “We imagine we are Water itself. Water is easy to mold. We aren’t manipulating the water. That’s not being one with nature. The moment you manipulate is the moment you defy nature who provides the connection between you and whatever you want to bond with. When we are one with nature, we may draw water from the environment and release it from our hands. Well, at least that's how Hydromancy works in theory."

A small droplet formed on Rosetta’s hand. It fell and made quite an impact to the ground although she didn’t notice. She tried again. A cup of water slowly oozed out of her hands and suddenly dropped on the ground. This water control was not easy at all.

"You lack control." Py pointed out.

"I know!" Rosetta shouted back. This time, a ball of water formed on her hands. In no less than a second, the ball deformed and fell to the ground.

"I want a demonstration of any sort!" Rosetta demanded.

"Are you sure? Py might make you look really bad." Jay nervously told Rosetta.

"Just get him to show me please!" Rosetta pestered. She didn’t care how bad the kid would make her look. Her yearning for magic wanted a demonstrator for magic too as she did not want to learn everything by herself or by theory.

"Rosetta... Py's little demonstration will make you look bad!" Jay told her, "I...no Rosetta, Py will not give you a...uh...ok, fine, Py will show you a small demonstration, step back, it’s going to get messy."

Jay and Rosetta stepped back and expected it to just be a show. After all, any type of demonstration can’t hurt, right?

Py brought his tiny hands up with his hands pointing up to the sky. Rosetta frowned as if she was expecting a better display of magic. The earth shook and Rosetta fell on the ground. She regretted her the thought about not getting hurt. She got up and watched as a few geysers erupted from the ground violently, leaving a giant holes deep from the earth. The water spiralled up in the sky and dropped. At that moment, the huge mass of water whirled above Py’s head, constantly spiraling around his head like a dragon. Jay looked at the demonstration looking completely shocked.

"That must be equivalent to a whole lakes worth!" Rosetta spoke breathlessly looking at the size of the water dragon. There was a boulder the size of a small hill nearby. Py aimed his hands that let off a blast of water at the boulder which effortlessly crumbled under the twisting walls of water that headed towards it. Rosetta gasped. Jay was right. Py's power had really made Rosetta look bad as she watched the enormous damage the mass of water had done. And most of all, she couldn't believe a tiny little five year old had done all that! Py smirked at Rosetta.

"I told you Rosetta." Jay replied. "I knew Py's display would make you feel bad."

"How did Py do that?" Rosetta asked stupidly. Jay ignored her.

"Py. You totally went overkill there." Jay somewhat scolded Py.

"What's that?" Py asked innocently. Jay covered his face with his hand. It must have been a very stressful day for him.

"Never mind that." Jay quickly dismissed the idea of scolding Py. He then turned back to Rosetta, "Your question again please?"

"I said how Py did that." Rosetta asked. Jay looked at Py.

"You need good control and focus." Py explained, “And you also need a lot of time to train your hands to get used to the power that you gather in your hands. This magic is still Hydromancy, except I used the underground water. You need to be Water's friend for you to use it. I could have used my own magical energy to create a ton of water, but I think it is easier if you use water outside of you. And it is easier to get your water than creating water."

"What’s the name of the spell?" Rosetta asked.

"Nah, it is too complicated to explain. I combined spells together into one." Py told her. "Did you get everything? Are you confident in what you are about to do?"

Rosetta nodded and shouted, "Hydromancas!"

Absolutely nothing happened. A young girl just arrived to watch Rosetta fail a spell. Py recognized the young girl and they played patty cake. Jay looked at him with a stern face.

"You need to use your energy the way we told you as you say it. After all, this is magic, you can’t just say the spell to activate it. This isn't a movie. Try again." Py replied.

The young girl giggled. She beat Py in patty cake. They then played again. Rosetta continued to attempt the spell with a more successful attempt.

"Hydromancas!" Rosetta shouted and aimed her energy at a tiny boulder. It was barely ambushed, but it was ambushed. The young girl immediately flicked her head over to Rosetta's. As Rosetta saw her do that, the young girl's black hair whipped aside, revealing emerald-green eyes. The look from her eyes were powerful. Rosetta’s felt some sort of pattern going on.

"You learn extraordinarily fast!" the young girl remarked while still sounding surprised.

"Who are you?" Rosetta asked, "My name is Rosetta by the way."

"I am Lila, the Leader of the Forest Tribe." the little girl revealed, “I am the first student of Jay and friend of Py!”

"Rosetta, your next lesson continues with Lila." Jay replied and looked at Lila, “She’s all yours. I told you the rest by mind.” and Jay walked away with the little kid Py following him like a little puppy.
