I've started reading the weak student and I wanted to write a story about a keep and everything!
Prologue- Viper's Flame
On a warm spring day near the Inn at the keep, water rushed swiftly down the stream far from all over the world. Students lined up behind a man whering green robes with a pattern of starts on the hood. It was Thane, a master magi.
"Students, the only way that it is possible for you to stay here is by catching your first creature," Thane spoke allowed not turning around to face the students. "Desseray, If you may?"
"It's my honour master Thane," a young girl said from the line up of students. Desseray rushed up towards the stream. Strings of her pure black hair ran with the wind as she ran. Desseray studies the stream. "One egg, one egg," She muttered under her breath.
Desseray took a step closer to the stream as she bent down to reach into the stream. Her hand stirring in the stream for a long moment but eventually, her hand slowly came out with a oval shaped light pink egg. Desseray made a great smile. She turned toward the students. They clapped quickly as if they wanted to move it along.
"Desseray, I congragulate you for completeing your task. You are now a magi in training," Thane spoke as he faced Desseray. His blonde hair slid out from the hood of his robes as he shook hands with Desseray. "Now, Viper. It is your turn to receive your first egg now."
Viper gulped. He had only received a C in his offense and defense magic. If he failed to retreive an egg he would never be able to raise creatures of all kinds.
"Viper!" Thane yelled to him. "Please, try to capture an egg now," Thane said as he calmed down.
Viper walked slowly toward the stream. He closed his eyes as he approached. "I can do this," Viper whispered to himself. He opened his eyes. His hand gently tapping the surface of the stream and sinking in. Viper felt around. He was losing time! If he didn't find one within ten seconds he would fail.
Viper looked at the stream carefully. He noticed a red shining stone in the middle. He pulled his hand out and walked carefully to the middle of the stream. He reached in once again and Viper felt something as soon as he put his hand in. He grabbed the object and lifted his hand. The egg was warm and a light red. Flames flickered at the top of the egg.
Viper turned toward the students. They clapped quickly once again.
Thane frowned. "It may be hard to raise a Phoenix Viper. They must be kept in fire every night for five hours. Are you sure this is the egg you want?"
Viper smiled. He wasn't going to let any kind of difficulty get in his way of being a magi. "This is my Pheonix, and there is no way I will let it down!" Viper yelled with a grin. Viper studdies the egg. It was getting hotter and hotter by the second. Viper's hand felt like it was burning. Viper ignored the pain. "My Phoenix."
