The Lost World I live in a mystical world. A world where anything unusual is just another average day here. Where people have green colored faces, and have vines growing out their heads for hair. Trees talk, and unknown creaturesroam the ground we walk on. Fog actually creeps over the land, and powers exist. This is not your ordinary world, this is a world called Taika, the planet of magic. My home is in a little town called Green Terra. It is known for its lovely scenery. The wishing flowers, talking trees, and bushes cover the area and its translucent serene lake. From generation to generation my families possessed the power to manipulate water in its many forms. Usually at the age of thirteen your powers awaken, but for some reason mines didn't. Grandfather said my time would come, that I was special. But I don't think that time will ever come. I will never be able to create water out of thin air, or make a huge wave just from a drop from leaves. “Una, come inside.” That's my name Una, it means “white wave”. It is the perfect name for me, because I have silver white hair and fair skin, unique in every way. I walked into our beautiful small cottage. Our cottage was beige with brown shutters. Vines crawled up on the side of the house blooming with rare flowers. I walked into the kitchen and seen my mom cooking a delicious meal. The aroma smelled so good I could taste it. “Una, go help your brother train with grandfather in the back. I think they might need some help with the equipment.” I moaned and went out the back door. Just because my powers didn't kick in yet they expect me to help everybody else with their training. I hate being on the side lines watching them have all the fun. I can't wait till I get my powers and get to tag along on their adventures. When I reached outside I saw my brother forming water and throwing it at the defense dummy, leaving a piercing hole through its body. My grandfather was congratulating him when he noticed my presence. “Hello, are you here to help us this afternoon.” “Yes, that what it appears.” My big brother, Destin stared my way and gave me a slight smirk. He thinks he's better than me because he got his powers before I got mine. He is always teasing me. Even though I don't have my powers he fails to realize that I am wiser then he is. He can be so careless at times that, one day it's going to hurt him in the long run. I went into the shack and grabbed another newly improved dummy. All the other equipment was on their shelves. We had all sorts of battle equipment: swords, nun chucks, spears, bows and arrows. The usual anybody would have. I closed the door behind me and placed the dummy in front of my brother. “Una, how about you train with us today.” “Really I can!” I said excitedly. “Why not, even if your powers don't kick in you need to learn some self defense.” I pulled on my lucky gloves and started my training. I would have never known that I was so good at this. Grandfather said I had a gift for this kind of thing. Maybe I didn't need my powers I could fight without them. I finished up my training with Destin and grandfather and went back in the house. My dad was sleep on the sofa snoring loud enough for the neighbors to hear. I smiled and went upstairs to my room. I sat on my cozy purple bed and stared at the ceiling. It was so quiet I could hear my own heartbeat. Then it was interrupted by the sound of pebbles being thrown at my window. I jumped up and looked out the window to see my two best friends Aden and Persephone. Click here to read the rest of this story (35 more lines)
