The 7 great mages

Adventure / Fantasy


     Annie was but a young girl the first time she was kidnapped. She was such a beautiful child, adored and envied. Before her eyes were emerald green and she had beautiful scarlet hair. But after she came back she had one emerald eye and one blood red eye, her hair remained the same scarlet that it had always been. But when this occurred she was feared and hated. The people who kidnapped her realized that she had a gift, it isn’t every day after all that a little girl knocks a person out by saying “sleep!”.

     So she was kidnapped and loaded up the day of her 5th birthday. Four weeks later she escaped. A week in she heard the voices. These voices told little Annie how to escape the nasty place with all the Baddies. These voices came with her new eye colour. She fell asleep on the first night and the Baddies poked her with needles so that she would be under their control and that they could unlock little Annie’s full potential. But they didn’t realise that they had just let Annie escape by believing that they had control. They unlocked her potential and in doing so let a force that had been helping Annie, to get even closer than it was before; that had been helping her for years in the background. Little Annie didn’t realize this, so when she yelled out “Die! Just Die you Baddies!” as the voices had told her to, all the Bad men did as she said. She didn’t know at the time but the people who were doing the autopsy found that they had died of a stroke or heart attack; simultaneously. That exact moment her eye turned red. ‘It will be how you show that you survived the torture that they made you suffer’ the voices told her ’listen to us and we will keep you safe’. It took Annie 3 weeks to get back home. She walked 388.5 kilometers until she got home. She was fed and watered by random strangers who payed no mind to her red eye because it was covered by her hair like the voices told her to. ‘They fear what they don’t know, we will protect you from those people; for now cover your eye, and you will be able to make it home.’

     When little Annie got home she was hit and beaten by her parents, and all of her friends and teachers at her school were scared of her and hurt her whether in her marks or physically, emotionally, verbally, and mentally. All of this because of her eye changing, something that couldn’t be controlled.This would have never happened if a teacher hadn’t told little Annie that she wasn’t allowed to have her hair in her face. She was also feared because she talked to these ‘voices’ and she would have actual conversations with them and seem to make eye contact with these ‘voices’ and even worse yet she had names for them too. But no one knew that these things making Annie look insane was actually her ancestor that had acted as a coping method for all of the abuse from her peers, teachers, and family. With the added bonus of opening a gate that had been long forgotten and opened the gate for seven others as well.
