Entering the World of Encrest Part I: The Magical World
Third POV: Ricky and Sandra
They found themselves on the cold ground. As they became aware, their minds were instantly filled with questions.
They got up in the middle of a big sigil with unfamiliar scriptures around them.
They observed that the naked room they were in appeared old and primitive. It had a medieval architectural design.
"Where are we?" amazed Ricky.
While they were looking around the place, a short ray of sunlight touched the part of Sandra's pale brown eyes.
Only a small quantity of light could pass through the allocated spaces which came from the mysterious black door.
As they came near the door, they heard the murmur of the crowd making an indistinct noise.
Ricky opened the door, and they were astounded by what they saw. A bustling crowd of foreign entities encompass
Chapter 12Entering the World of Encrest Part I: The Sky Harbor of SalnorThird POV: Ricky and SandraThe lady's plume of crimson hair was coiled and braided in two, with tiny red ribbons attached at the end.She was wearing vintage pilot goggles with sparkles in her silver eyes, her ears were as sharp and pointy as an elf, her skin was like fresh strawberries dipped in milk.Her lips were cherry red and plump, and she wore a long and thick copper gingerbread gown made of wool cloth with a tucker tucked into her flat chest.The woman stopped while she was looking at something in between."Hmm, Natousak gna abi, ta ilagu agm gnabiakak, egnat agm golib..."(Hmm, Round ears, exquisitely odd chimerical personalities, and an unprecedented sense of fashion...)The siblings gave a sudden blank expression and both of their brows rose. They looked at each other for a few sec
Chapter 13Entering the World of Encrest Part II: The Village of MirhanCarter's POV:I began to worry while Ricky and Sandra were engulfed by this blue flame and immediately disappeared.For the sake of my two most cherished siblings, I fought my fear. Trembling with trepidation, I ended up forcing myself into the old abandoned well.I can't stand around here doing nothing as if it never happened!I could see that the entrance over me was progressively diminishing. The light from above gradually diminished as I descended further down into the well.I felt the weight of the air. My lungs deprived of oxygen as the terrible odor of sewers entered my nose. I scarcely breathed, trying not to inhale the foul stench of poisoned air.When I reached the very end of the well, even though I couldn't see much of the floor I was stepping on, I felt the wet, spongy ground underneath the heels
Chapter 14Entering the World of Encrest Part II: The Rainbow ForestCarter's POV: "Noyagn nayid oyak ibat!" (Get out of here, now!) A creature shouted from far away. It sounded masculine and a bit deep. He was wearing a long black robe. A hood covered his head and I couldn't see much of his face hidden behind. At first, I thought it was Lincoln because I noticed the long robe he had on, but it turned out to be a different person. I did not understand what he was declaring, but it drew the attention of the many that caused the people to flee headlong in panic. A sudden unreasoning terror permeated the place. All began to leave from their respective places. The hooded man was running at a brisk pace toward my direction while he was being chased by someone. I was dumbfounded when he disappeared from my sight and reappeared at the nearest distance possible. He immediately caught me, and we fell to the
Chapter 15Setbacks DrawThird POV: Ricky and Sandra "How come you live under here?" asked Sandra. "If I were to answer your question, I am an outcast," Amarra responded. She then opened the door and entered her home and started packing. "You see that place over there? That is the Ministry of Encrest. I always wanted to join the Academy..." She pointed her finger out the window to indicate where she was saying. "But anyway, too bad we ain't staying here for long. I forgot something to bring with me," added Amarra while forcefully pushing some of the items in her bag and satchel to fit in. "We just got here, why are we leaving too soon?" asked Ricky. "I'm setting out on an adventure," Amarra replied. "That sounds fun! I love adventures, too! Can we come?!" Ricky gasped in excitement. His eyes were brimming with enthusiasm after hearing the word 'adventure'. "I am sorry, but I will take you back to where you
Chapter 16The Downhearted FollyThird POV: Ricky and Sandra "Oh no..." Amarra gasped. She then hurriedly ran to a burnt house and went inside. Amarra's pace of running drew Ricky and Sandra's attention, and they changed their focus on her. The inside of the house was in disorder. The thrown pieces of paper, dust layers and disorganized carpets were scattered on the floor. Even the furniture, shelves and ornaments were in disarray.An old man was seen reclining on the floor. He looked thin and pale with his body covered in red ribbons running along the inside of his thighs. There were scratches and wounds everywhere on his bloodsoaked body. He was coughing out blood and breathing hard. Amarra rapidly approached the old man and knelt down at his side. She appeared devastated and saddened by an old man's appearance. Her spirit was depressed. Tears rushed down her face and a drop fell from her chin onto the old ma
Chapter 17The Magical of AmuletCarter's POV: I felt like a child in a long dream, unable to wake up, trapped in the reality you have created by your own imagination. All was so detailed in fashion and everything in it seemed so real! At first, I was terrified of what could happen here, especially if I had to immerse myself in the wicked barbarians with their dangerous magic. Nevertheless, all the fear that I kept in myself immediately disappeared after seeing the glamour of this colorful world. In those few moments, I felt a strange feeling of tranquility, a serene comfort with a strange dab of magic over my heart that I did not quite seem to understand. It was indescribably inexpressible. No existing word or phrase could describe what I was feeling, but it was a very unusual feeling. I mean, aside from the enchanted garden, I felt the same extreme level as Raven and I visited this place. "Where are we?" I asked
Chapter 18The Gems of EncrestCarter's POV: I approached him to see what he was reading and what was in his book. A sudden flash of light came out from the book. All I saw were wrinkled letters, I couldn't read and understand what was written in the book. But one picture that was drawn helped me understand what he was reading. "All right, but what are you reading?" "According to the book-" he showed me a word I couldn't read then it slowly vanished. "Hmmm, strange. My book couldn't trace its origin. Nothing comes out. I wonder..." "Why?" I curiously asked. "This book has the ability to retrace the history of all things. Simply place the item you want on top, then the rest is told." "Oh, Wow! Really?? What a cool thing! It works just like a scanner of some sort." My eyes widened a little at the new information I had learned.<
Chapter 19The Prickly QueenThird (Main) POV: Raven was struck by a sudden mental disturbance. Raven and Carter hurriedly came close to the broken window, and from where they were standing, they saw an aggressive lady with great vehemence struggling to capture an orange toad in front of the yard. Raven went ballistic after he saw the window. His skin turned auburn. His face was like a suppressed cherry bomb shivering from the explosion. He cast and conjured an energetical white rope and strangled the lady with fury and jumped out from the window. The lady was wearing a cerulean stola - and minty-dagged shirt like robe and had an armlet worn on her undergarment. A long woolen dress covers her whole lower limbs. Her cheeks were blushing like pink tulips. Her plume of golden stardust hair was braided into a bandeau and her eyes were forest green. "You broke my window!" Raven got enraged and spoke fiercely, tightening the energetic
