The Wielder Diaries: My Crystal
by Ashley Scheller
GENRE: Fantasy Adventure
Please...Please come back... Those words ring in her ears as she awakens. A strange band of characters call her Kayla, a name she’s forgotten along her life filled with transforming animals, magic, and dragons. Anybody would want to remember such an exciting life, yet there seems to be a truth no one wants to share, WHY it’s important Kayla remembers. With a mystical book in hand, she races against time to recall her adventures she shared with her family and friends in this first installment of ‘The Wielder Diaries’ series, ‘My Crystal.’
Left alone, before I could ask any more questions, I studied the item carefully. It was certainly odd for a diary, let alone a book. There was no title. The covers were made of this blue-tinted, crystal-like material. The covers themselves were a mystery as some inky black liquid that stained them oddly swirled around on its own just beneath the surface. The entire outside was rather warm to the touch and surprisingly growing hotter the longer I held it.
Come on…I need you. These people need you to help me out here!
Bearing through the pain, I pried it open.
It hurts! Knock it off! Work with me here!
A chill ran down my spine when I heard a whiny screech, but it wasn’t about to deter me from my task. Slapping both hands on the tan pages to prevent the covers from snapping shut, I next heard a ghostly sigh.
“Whew!” I leaned back. “All right, that was weird.”
I studied the reddish font while I sat back up, ignoring the slight burning sensation in my hands. Before I could start, the pages’ aged, tan color dissolved away while a gold font replaced the icky red. Although the pages I was looking at became pure white, the rest of them remained tan like they were waiting for me to turn to their spot.
