Chapter 1: Chapter 1 - The beginning of the end

Whenever I fall asleep, I am afraid that I will never wake up. A sky shimmering with crimson red, the sea dazzling like scales, wind burning like flames. Whenever I fall asleep, I am in a different place in a different world, surrounding by creatures unknown to man. The only thing that gets me awake from the nightmare is …

"Dyne!"

I opened my eyes and saw daylight peering through my window, then remembered what day it was: magic practice. I rolled over and see a blinding light from her magic: Light.

"Get up, you'll be late for source practice!" My mother said impatiently.

"But mum…. Practice is lame- even the beastials make fun of me, and they have the weakest magic in all of Antrite!" I replied.

Suddenly, I got yet another face full of light from my mother, and I fell over.

"Don't use that word, you know it's called source! Now, get up and go, your father would be ashamed of you." My mother replied.

I put on some clothes and felt a little ashamed. My so-called father died of an illness before I was born. The only similarity I have to him is that one of his sources was air. The elemental sources work like a muscle- the more you use it, the stronger it gets. My muscle is below-average , that's why I don't want to go to practice.

I walked out of my room to see that my mother was getting ready for her job as a shopkeeper. She threw me a lump of Brendan the baker's town famous boost loaf.

After I caught it, my mum chirped "Remember, home by 5, otherwise more source training, ok?"

"Got it, be back by 5 or more source training " I muttered.

I walked out the door and make my way to school. For about 5 minutes it was going well until I heard a person yelling "Hey punk!" in the distance.

I turn around to see that my daily beating was about to be administered by Frederick. Frederick, the school bully and beastial was always on me, one way or another. His beastial was a Cerberus as his creature, and believe me, it doesn't alter his personality, it IS his personality.

Now, Frederick doesn't have 3 heads, like a Cerberus, instead, he always has 2 hellhound beastial friends around him.

"You ready for a butt whoopin' in source practice, Dye?" Frederick snorted.

"First of all, my name is Dyne not Dye! And secondly, I have a good feeling about today." I responded daringly.

Right after that, Frederick punched me straight in the stomach. I felt as though my entire breakfast would be torn straight out.

"Good day indeed, but not for you, for me." Frederick chuckled.

After Frederick and his friends walked off, I still felt that punch. Frederick's father is the principal of the town's school- thus we can't attack him for fear of being expelled or worse. But, to my knowledge, he wastes a lot of rumes. As Frederick has barely any brain cells, he was throwing a silver rume up into the air. With a grin on my face I started running towards him. I knew what I wanted to do so I released some of my source and caught the silver rume out of Fredericks hand and parkoured my way onto the nearest rooftop.

"You like my source spell, it triples my jump height!". I said with a chuckle.

Frederick and his friends started to chase after me and they were catching up fast. No wonder, beasteals were faster than humans. I jumped over a wall, and after a while Frederick gave up on the chase.

"Enjoy the meal punk, you're gonna need it," Frederick said angrily before walking off with his bad temper.

I didn't pay much attention to what Frederick said, but I was so excited, a silver rume, this could pay for 2 whole lunches at school! I put the rume into my rume sack which was running quite dry at the moment. The only other cash that was in there were 2 crace and 5 bronze rumes, the silver rume that was added to my collection just doubled all that!

After I while I settled down and felt a presence looking straight at me. I looked around and found a large black robed figure watching me. Immediately after we met eyes the man started to run away from me, so I ran after him. I was quite lucky I forgot to break my jump spell I put on myself. Little did the mysterious man know, I knew these streets like the palm of my hand. After a while he took a sharp turn right into a back alley. I was about to confront the mysterious man but he was nowhere to be found.

I looked around and the only thing interesting to see was an apple tree. I picked an apple off and put it into my bag. With an apple in my bag and a good attitude, I was about to leave the ally, when I saw an interesting purple rock. I picked it up and examined it, most rocks around Daishin were grey or black. I put the rock in my little sachet I have on my waist.

I suddenly realized that I'm not supposed to be here. A secret I keep from my mum is that I am in a gang. The gang's name : The Wasted Dullahan. I was deep in enemy territory. Another reason why no one deals with Frederick also is because he is the leader of the enemy gang: The blazing werewolf. After my realization, I immediately ran out of the alleyway and straight to school ready to start the day.

    Thanks, I made a little synopsis or glossary, Source is their magic. Beasteals are a human animal hybrid Magic is a small game, also slang for their source. Yes rumes are the currency
