The girl that had shouted "Another one!" disappears from the rooftop and re-appears directly beside me just as a different girl comes from huge cathedral-like doors.
"Hello," I say again, and the Cathedral-girl and dissappear-reappear both look at me.
"Hi," says dissappear-reappear, "I'm Keela,"
"Adria," I reply, "I like your name!"
"I'm Nikki," says Cathedral-girl, good, names are definitely good.
"And I, young ones, am Skye," The second girl I saw standing on the rooftop is now also standing with Keela and Nikki but she is looking at myself and Nikki. "Have you picked sides?" she asks me.
"Uh, I think the guy at the desk before I started with the blasting water at dummies thingy, but after the lady sent me to hi-"
"Get to the POINT!" she bellowed.
"Yesh, temper! Anywho, he said Kingdom," Skye growled at me and I instinctively took a step back.
"No need to get your nickers in a knot. Are you crazy or something?" I said bluntly. Keela looked at me, her mouth slightly open and her eyes wide.
"Do not tempt me," she replied with an evil smile. I grasp my throat as I suddenly find it hard to breathe. "I am not crazy, simply, experience and much more able than you are,"
Suddenly, my air supply returns in a rush, choking me. When I look at Skye, she is drenched, head-to-toe, as if she just went swimming in her clothes.
"Oopsies," I snicker.
"This is not over," she says, addressing all of us now. "And you, Nikki, I'm looking forward to meeting you under . . . better circumstances," Keela rolls her eyes at Skye as she walks away.
"Welcome to the Kingdom," she says after Skye is gone. "She's from the Freedom,"
"That sounds like a good thing," I reply.
"Belive me, it's not." I shrug looking at the big cathedral that Nikki had exited from.
"So, you're new too?" I ask her.
"So, do I have to go in there too?"
"It's advised," replies Keela, she's definitely not new.
"Well, if you say so! Be right back," I walk over to the big doors and need to use all of my strength to open the doors.
"Good luck," calls Keela.
"Thanks," I reply, gulping hoping that I don't need luck in what I'm about to do.
