Congratulations! You have been accepted into Blackstone School!
But mystery letter, you might think, I never signed up for Blackstone School!
You actually did, you just didn't know. You all signed up for a new, revolutionary boarding school that would be a mix of different cultures. Well, that's Blackstone School!
You, along with five other students, have been chosen specifically. You will live and learn alongside elves from the Lost Cities - try not to freak out about that, humans - and humans from the area around Blackstone School.
We have the support of three councilors from the elvin world, but no one else.
Cecilia has wavy, light brown hair that reaches down her to her elbows and brown eyes. Light caramel skin tone. She wears the teacher version of the uniforms - black pants, a dark green shirt and a gray jacket if it's cold. Around 5'4.
Teacher of math, ELA, Human History
Amber has bright amber hair and bright blue eyes. She has pale skin and a few freckles. She wears the same thing as Cecilia, except for a long, dark blue cloak. Around 5'7. Hydrokinetic.
The setting is Blackstone School. It's in a forest, with a dirt road winding up to a garage. There's a main buliding in the center, with five smaller bulidings, one long buliding off to the side, a large garden, and a ampi-theater.
The first room of the main building is a small foyer with three doorways and a spiral staircase. The door on the left leads a hall, which goes to the kitchen. The middle door has a small dining room, with a table with eight chairs. The door on the right leads to the largest room of the three - a lounge area. There's two long couches, a TV, some armchairs, a coffee table, a bookcase, and a small upright piano.
The second room of the main building is divided by a hall. There are six doorways, two on the left side and four on the right. The doors on the lefthand side are studying rooms/classrooms, with three desks, chairs, a whiteboard, and a bookcase in each. Two of the doors on the other side lead to bedrooms with three bunk beds in each. These rooms can be decorated however you want. The other two rooms are small bathrooms.
The other buildings are classrooms, as well as an art/music room and a building where the teachers live/work. The long building is a pool/gym/classroom.
Moren kept ignoring her and wiping his eyes constantly. He tripped and the whole world seemed to tilt. His foot caught on a rock literally IN the gorge and he hung upside down from it. His head hit the side and he passed out, his ankle twisted at an unnatural angle.
"Moren? Oh my gosh - MOREN!" Amber said. She carefully peered over. The rushing river below spat out droplets. Amber closed her eyes, controling the river water to lift up Moren and put him on the ground. It worked. Amber opened her eyes, letting go of her concentration. The water dropped.
Amber nodded. “The Advil should kick in soon.” She leaned the crutches against a tree. “Until we can get you to a healer, these will have to do. I’ll help you stand up. Don’t put ANY weight on your injured foot.”
He pushed himself up with his hands. “Yeah, I know. I already learned that the hard way.” He reached for the tree branch and pulled himself to a standing position, putting all his weight on his uninjured foot.
A woman beamed into the courtyard. She had dark hair with little jewels in it, bright blue eyes, dark skin, and a large bag. Amber jumped up and opened to door for her. She came inside, tossing her long hair.
"I'm Livvy. I'm assuming you're the student Amber was talking about?" she asked Moren.
"You aren't getting in any fights," Amber said. Livvy laughed.
"I'll bandage your foot in a cast and give you a few elixirs. You should stay in here for at least a day. Amber can hail me if anything goes wrong."
Livvy picked up a few elixirs from . the table. Achey-break, Scratchs-'n-Spilts and Bone-Mender. She grabbed a few bottles of Youth. "Drink these, then wash it down with a bottle of Youth," Livvy commanded, putting the bottles on the table next to Moren.
Livvy set out a few more elixirs, sticking a note to each and writing instructions. She set them to the side and took another box of Prattles, putting in the cabinet. She lit the candles again and drew the curtains. She peered at Moren's ankle. She then opened the curtains and blew the flames out.
“Careful! Here, use this.” Amber handed him a remote that controlled if the mattress was easy to sit on - like a sleep number thingy.
“Okay. If you need anything call Amber, then me. Well, call me if you need anything medicine wise.” Livvy said, them pulled Amber aside, pointing to the different elixirs and telling her when to give them to Moren.
The mattress kept moving up and down. It was annoying, really.
“I should go,” Livvy said. “I’ll check in with you tomorrow.” She left without another word. Amber could see her run into the main building and come out again, her bag lighter. She held up a clear crystal and leaped away.
“What books? Oh, I know what you might like.” Amber dashed out of the room and returned carrying the Hobbit and all three Lord of the Rings books. She put them in the bedside table with a loud noise. “The Hobbit goes first.”
“The Hobbit.” She handed it to him. “It’s very good. Fun fact! JRR Tolkien got inspired for this story from elves. He spent his time in the trenches of World War One, I think, working out the Elvish language.”
Amber heard the last part. She paled, cursing in her head. She ran into the Music Room. “Everyone to your dorms now.” Once she cleared that room, she whipped out her imparter. “Show me Ceclia Bashrrine.”
“Amber! I still can’t find her...”
“She was kidnapped.”
“By Moren‘s mom.”
Ceclia swore. “I’m guessing she’s part of the Neverseen?”
Amber nodded. “Can you contact the Collective? They need to know about this. I’ll contact our supporters in the Council.”
Ceclia nodded. “I’m coming back.” She turned off her imparter.
Del woke up, head throbbing with pain. She coughed a few times, her throat burning, as she looked down at her bonds, tying her to a chair in a dark room, except for the small light in front of her. She heard a small laugh then some footsteps approaching her. A woman came into view. She looked a bit like Moren but more cold. And calculated. But beautiful nonetheless.
"So....you must be Del." The woman said, jerking Del's chin up at her. Del tried to yank her head away but the woman held on, locking her jaw. "I don't appreciate all that much what you've done to my son. Moren was always going to be the best of the best. But now you've softened him." Her gaze darkened even more, though she smiled in a mockingly kind way. "So we'll have to take care of you. And it's not as though you can blame me. I'm just a mother protecting her son."
She let go of Del's head, slapping her across the face. She stalked out of the room and Del heard the door being locked. She hung her head, hair falling around her and her shoulders shake with sobs.
Sara felt i huge amount of ice cold water drench her. she woke up in an instant. she must have made a huge ball of water while sleeping and not even realize.she looked around. she was on the floor, Cecelia and amber seemed reaaly concerned, WHAT THE H*** HAPPEND?!?! she finally noticed moren. "OH MY GOSH MOREN! WHAT HAPPNED?" she looked around again. "wait a minuet" she said, "where's del?"
"wait, you mom is evil and she has del" sara asked she pondered "i have a plan" she told them what it was and then went into the woods and took a sip of her drink, automaticaly feeling woozy I Thats not lush berry juice, thats slumber berry juice! and thats not tea, it's- she didn't finish the thought, she passed out asleep again. when she woke up, she was somewhere else, somewhere dark and cold, and were those, chains? she could barley look around, but she felt dels precense. (don't worry, i have a plan)
While Sara was being watched, Moren's mom had come back to talk to del. she sat down and smiled as though they were wonderful friends.
"So, Del, I'm here to make a bargain." She pulled out a tall hourglass. She set in front of del. "I want you to help me get my son to join my cause. After that, you'll be free to go. Anywhere you want." She smiled chillingly.
Del's soft features were twisted with horror. "Why would I do that? Why would even think might?"
Just like that, all fake kindness dissolved form the face of Moren's mom. "Because if you don't, this cell will be filled with water and you'll drown before ever saying goodbye to him. When this hourglass is done, that will happen. You have until then to submit to me." She flipped the hourglass over and left the room locking the door.
