Teaser: Excerpt

The Dream Magic 


      The Dream Magic was searching. It was searching for someone to give its powers to. A person that would use the powers for good, and not their own purposes. It needed a strong person, one that would not give in to the Darkness whispers.
      It could feel things were changing. A sense that the balance between good and evil was once again going to be disrupted. Magic belonged in the world of Mystica once again.
      There were some remnants of magic about. The Priestess of the Goddess of the Sun had some, and pockets of magic were strewn about the kingdom.
Nothing compared to the might of the wizards. They moved mountains, commanded spiders, controlled the weather, and were able to make storms out on the sea.
      The Dream Magic looked for someone it could give its magic to and fulfill its quest of freeing the wizards’ magic for all of Mystica to use. It would not be easy. Once the magic was given, the dreams would come. The visions would reveal to the person their destiny. It would show them places to go, spells to say. It was about to the person to follow the dreams, and do as they bid.
      This person not only had to be strong, but compassionate. It had to be someone who would want to help people. This was a powerful magic, and if in the wrong hands, could be detrimental to the kingdom of Mystica and all future Dream Walkers.
      The magic could be used to help, or destroy. There were safeguards in place, just in case a Dream Walker turned to the dark. It did not want to take these measures, if not necessary. It was like taking someone’s soul away. Once the magic was given, it was linked to that person for life. The Dream Walkers that successfully completed their quests rested peacefully in the Cloud of Dreams. The Cloud of Dreams was all white with big white puffy clouds to lay on. There, their magic could be gathered for they were no longer on the Earthly realm. When there was great need, they were allowed to watch and assist the next Dream Walker.
      The Dream Magic gathered its silvery essence. If flew through Mystica, looking for its next owner. It looked. It watched. No one stood out to it that could handle this next quest. It went further.
      It traveled to a different world. A world where lights came on with a switch, and contraptions zoomed by at a high speed.
Tall buildings reached into the sky. People crowded the streets, pushing and shoving each other. It thought to itself, there are a lot of people on this word. It should be able to find someone here.
      As it flew through this new world, it came to a library. In the library, it saw a young girl reading. Something about the girl drew its attention. It came closer. It watched her. It saw how she opened the door for people. It listened to her cheerful greetings and responses. She always had a friendly hello and a smile on her face. Still, the magic sensed a great sadness about her. This intrigued it. It stayed and watched her some more.
      Miranda tried to go about her daily life after her parents died. She studied, read, and tutored children. The library was one of her favorite places to hang out. She tried not to think of her parents, but when she did, she hoped she was making them proud.
      After watching the girl for some time, the Dream Magic decided this girl was going to be the next Dream Walker. It entered her soul in her sleep and starting to give her the dreams. It would be up to her what to do with them.
      It hoped it choose correctly.
