Ashton: New Kid.

I was walking to school in the morning when I heard someone yelling. Curious, I decided to check it out, so I followed the sound to the park. And I saw a freshman yelling at a classmate. I could tell because they looked the same age. Then, I saw something terrible, the freshman  pushed the other classmate onto the ground using some kind of propulsion power. When I felt the backdraft of air, I knew he was an Aeromancer.

"Hey, stop picking on that kid!"

He looked at me and laughed. "What are you going to do? Heal me to death? Hahahaha!"

I looked into his eyes and saw which abilities I could use on him without him getting seriously injured.


As I screamed the name of the spell the kid pressed his hands to his head and he fell to the ground screaming in pain. It was like a headache mutliplied.

I grab him and hitch him over my shoulder, then I turn to the kid he was picking on. I put my hand out infront of me, and I point my palm at him. And after a few seconds he was completely healed.

"Follow me."

I began walking back to the school, carrying the kid over my shoulder, with the other one trailing behind. Within 20 minutes I was there. And the first place I went was the office. I noticed a new kid there, waiting in one of the chairs. Then, the secretary spoke.

"What happened this time Ashton?"

"This kid on my shoulder, was bullying the other kid."

"Hmm, OK, Garth!" She calls another staff member, "Take this child to Mr. Berath, and take the other child to his first class."

She waited until Garth left the office before talking again.

"And you, Mr. Ashton, to the principal."

"Yes, ma'am."

I take the steps and enter the office, and she looks at me from her chair.

"Have a seat."

I do.

"You have to stop doing this Ashton, you have to stop defending the children by beating up the stronger ones."

"Hey, that kid was an Aeromancer, that could've gotten really ugly really quick."

"But that's not your job to decide. You have lot's of potential as a Healer, Ashton. Don't throw it away."

"I'm not, I just think they deserve a voice, and they don't get one."

"Ugh. I don't have time to deal with this. But, I have a punishment in mind."

"A punishment?"

"Yes. There is a kid out there, his name is Murphy. And he needs someone to show him around and introduce him to everyone. That's going to be your job."

"My job?"

"Yeah, now have fun."

I step out of the her office and into the main office and I see Murphy.

"Hey, Murphy."

He looks at me. "What do you want?"

"I was told to show you around. So, let's go."

He stands up and I show him around, while we talk about lots of things, from my expedition to stop the dark, to his close encounter last night.

The End
