Chapter one Karla TOKATEKA "Our world is one of darkness but there is color and wonder," Karla announced to the girl sitting on her bunk. The girl sitting on the bunk was none other than Joyce, Karla's best friend. Both girls were young ladies of their people. Karla, who was exceptionally beautiful, was a water lady. Her hair was dark aqua blue, her skin creamy white with a tinge of blue, but her eyes were most startling. They were dark green with specks of blue and purple floating in the green aura. Joyce, on the other hand was a fire lady. She had fiery red, almost orange hair, pale skin with a scattering of brown freckles, and her eyes were a soft magical grey. Both girls were only thirteen and they were being sent to Tokateka, the school of the universe. Karla could hardly wait for she had an older brother who had gone. His name was Lord Koregan of the Water People and he was destined to marry Princess Miranda of the Water People. He was very distraught over the fact for he loved Camaraline, a common girl. He would have flat out refused but for the sake of his father's name, he had consented and was to be wed to the young princess in a few months. The reason this excited Karla so was because Koregan had found a spell that would repulse Princess Miranda from him. He had found it at Tokateka, the only place with the knowledge of every possible spell in the universe. Underage people, meaning people who were not of age to go to Tokateka were not allowed there at all. One had to be thirteen to get in and even then, the white dove of Marciss had to permit you to go there. Both Joyce and Karla had been presented before the white dove of Marciss and it had cooed its approval. "What do you mean? I see no darkness, except for at night, in our world," Joyce looked at Karla with bewilderment. "Oh Joyce, that is simply because you have not the sense to see the poetic bleakness of life. There are only a few bright moments to look forward to and even those eventually flicker and extinguish," she replied. "You water people are far to dramatic. There is not enough light, I love her and I cannot marry that one. Get over it," Joyce disapproved of Koregan attempting to get out of the marriage, mainly because she had a crush on him. "What do you think Tokateka is like?" Karla inquired dreamily as she gazed out her little tower window at the moving surface of the water far above her roomy home. "I imagine it is a stony fortress filled with giddy school students from everywhere possible. There are lessons to be taught and they shall be learned," the red head responded in a bored tone of voice. "Do you want to know what the problem is with fire people? They never have any creative moments, all they think about is reality. Don't you ever find reality boring?" Karla spun around and flopped on the bed beside Joyce. "No, I find it reassuring. I know that in reality, there are ways to battle and destroy anything but in fantasy, there are creatures that have not even yet to be identified. I find it much safer, here on stable ground," she rolled on her back to look at the bubble-domed roof of Karla's room. Her friend only sighed in exasperation. "Girls," Karla's stunning mother poked her head in the room, " You should really go to sleep. We have to get up bright and early to shop for your school supplies." "Fine, we'll go to sleep," Karla began climbing to the top of her bunk. "Goodnight Mrs. Waves," Joyce smiled as she wiggled under the soft, seaweed silk sheets. "Sleep tight you two and I mean it, sleep," she smiled and flicked off the electric eels gliding across the roof then she shut the door.
