This is a wattpad challenge story. 3 people wake up in a strange house to discover they are part of a competition to be selected for the palace wizard. The only rule:survive.
Jasmine Starwater woke up and saw a large ornate dome entirely of glass high above her. She slowly began to come to the realization that she was lying on a hard, cold, marble floor. She was 26 years old, and had long red hair and blue eyes.
Where am I? she wondered as she became more conscious of her surroundings. Jasmine sat up. She could now see that she was sitting on the floor in the middle of an entryway of a huge house. There was a large grand staircase,which was covered in cobwebs, and a large set of wooden doors. There were several huge windows above the doors, and Jasmine could see that it was nighttime outside. The room was dimly lit by candles on a large chandelier hanging high above the grand staircase.
Jasmine looked around and saw two other people lying on the ground. One was another young woman and the other a young man. Jasmine walked up to the woman and shook her shoulder. The woman had long brown hair. She slowly opened her eyes, and glanced around in apparent confusion. "Where am I?"she asked. "I was hoping that you could tell me! My name is Jasmine." Jasmine said.
"My name is Aslin."the other woman replied.
Aslin pointed at the young man lying on the floor. "Hey, maybe he knows where we are." she said. He appeared to be waking on his own. "Good morning sunshine!"she said cheerfully. The young man crinkled his brow. "Where am I? And who are you?"he asked. "Well, my name is Aslin, and this is Jasmine." Aslin said as she pointed to herself and then to Jasmine. "I am Zyke."the young man said. Jasmine was suddenly stricken with the idea to try to open the door. She walked up to the massive set of doors, and tried to open them, but discovered that they were locked. She pounded on the door, hoping that someone would hear her, and let them out. "Hello?"she yelled, but the only reply she got was the sound of her voice echoing off the walls. "Hey, look at that! Aslin yelled. Jasmine turned and saw her pointing at a podium that had suddenly appeared out of nowhere at the foot of the staircase. "That....is weird." Zyke said. Jasmine walked up to the podium., and saw a piece of paper lying on it. She read what was written on it aloud to the others,
Congratulations! You have been selected for the position of Palace Wizard by the king and queen of the country of Phantaria. This is the final phase of the interview process: the Wizard Game. The only rule:survive. The only way out of the game is to survive all the challenges the game will present. Happy playing!
