The crack of lightning wizzed by my ear as i trembled in fear, his wretched laughter echoed in my mind. "Giving up already?" he sneered.

Chapter 8: When School Turns Fun
I followed Hunter as he led me to a man with a cane and a suitcase. I saw he had one of those one glass glasses those famous people have, I never knew the name of those. As we got closer I realized in astonishment it was a dog.
"Greeting fellow wizards, my name is Arthur Wethersfield" he shook our hands gently, his hand warm and furry. "Hello" I greeted shyly, he suddenly looked at me with great interest "a new wizard I see, what school have you been selected for?" he asked politely. I stood there dumbfounded for a moment and then realized what he was talking about "oh um I'm in the death school" I said embarrassingly, I heard Hunter try and stifle a laugh. I gently hit him in the arm as he rolled his eyes.
"Wow a death student. That's remarkable, we haven't had a new death student in awhile" Arthur Wethersfield said in awe. I squirmed uncomfortably, I felt like I was in a cage at a zoo as he said that. Hunter glanced at me and saw my reaction "it was nice to see you again professor but I have to show Katelyn around" he said with horribly hidden enthusiasm, I couldn't help but giggle.
"You two kids have fun" The talking dog said as we walked away. "What's with me being a rare death student thing?" I asked Hunter as we passed by the raining tree; it stared at me with what looks like curiosity sketched into his features. Hunter just shrugged "I heard some rumors going around that Merle Ambrose put an end to the death school because of Malistare" he pushed open a door before I could ask who Malistare was, leading us inside a very purple room. Yellowish whitish lightning bolts were printed on the wallpaper all around the room I noticed quickly as I walked with Hunter on a purple carpet that felt soft under my shoes.
We stopped at a desk with a candle lit on top of it, I looked and saw there was also a feather dipped in a bottle of ink, so old fashioned, I wonder if they have typewriters that sparkle when you type something I thought vividly. "Professor Balestrom?" Hunter called to the room. "Oh sorry!" a talking frog stood up on the desk with a cane in his hand. I observed, amazed, that the frog was actually wearing a purple top hat with faded pink lines after, what looks like, years of use. He was also wearing a purple tuxedo type jacket.
"Ah what have we here?" Professor Balestrom cocked his head. "I'm Katelyn" I introduced myself shyly, telling him about my school. He nodded and smiled excitingly "I am Professor Balestrom, the master of storm!" he triumphed, I giggled quietly. His voice sounded funny…
"What's going to be your secondary school? Storm is one of the best secondary schools" he said proudly as Hunter rolled his eyes. "Huh?" I gave Hunter one of my best confused faces as a smile tugged at his lips. "When you level up you get training points" he soon then explained how to spend training points wisely and how you can earn them back. "Cool" I breathed, grinning Hunter took my hand, leading me to another school.
The tour of all the schools was absolutely fun, especially with Hunter I thought with a smile. Lydia Greyrose was so very nice, maybe she will be my second class but Hunter warned me. "If you're going to train in ice then just keep going until you get tower shields" he explained, I frowned "why?" I whined. "For reasons I'll explain later dummy" he teased, I rolled my eyes.
I also really liked Dalia Flamea, she was beautiful. Her hair was completely made out of fire and I pondered how easily it would be to take care of that kind of hair. I was disappointed about my death "teacher" I looked at him skeptically "where's the teacher?" I asked disappointed "and the school!" I added suddenly. Hunter and the boy explained about how Malistare used to be the teacher but evil overwhelmed him and he became evil, disgracing the death name.
"I was his best student" he told me with a little sad smile "so I teach other death students the basics of spells." I nodded and waved farewell. I looked at the myth building and spread my arms out at the sudden sparkles surrounding me. "Pssssh I'm staying out here" Hunter said, leaning against the myth tower with his arms folded across his chest. My eyebrow rose "why not? I demanded and he just smirked "you'll see" was all he said.
"Humph" I went in to introduce myself and came out of the school, fuming with fury "such a jackass…" I muttered to myself and Hunter doubled over laughing. I couldn't help but smile, his laughing helped me calm down yet make me even angrier. "Why didn't you warn me about stupid Cyrus Drake?!" I exclaimed furiously "he's such a…" I couldn't even spit out the word.
"Hmm let's see… Douche bag, Jackass-"Hunter started naming them out and I lightly hit him "language" I chastised him, tapping my finger on his nose as he gave me puppy eyes. "Don't try and change me woman!" Hunter exclaimed as we raced to the last school, the life school. The gentle atmosphere in the room, as we entered, helped me loosen my nerves. Moolinda Wu was so nice she reminded me of my mom, making me home sick a little.
As we were heading back to Merle Ambrose's office I asked Hunter "Will I ever go back to my family?" He looked at me in surprise "well… yes but first you have to be a high enough level" I frowned "that's a bit unfair don't you think?" he chuckled "yeah a bit" we walked in peaceful silence as we headed toward Merle Ambrose's office.
Right when I got in someone tackled me and pinned me to a wall. "Katelyn!" I heard a very familiar voice exclaim. The person pulled me back and grinned as I saw her face. "SOMER!" I laughed as relief flooded through my heart. "O-M-Double-G! I thought you got kidnapped by purple ninjas wearing pickled hoodies!" she hugged me again. "Can't-breath" I wheezed. Somer let me go and realized Hunter was staring at us "May I help yoooouuu?" she asked him curiously while checking him out. I shook my head, same old Somer.
"Are you, like, Katelyn's best friend or her sister or or… I don't know" he said with a dumb smile glued onto his face. Somer giggled "best friend" she answered. I rolled my eyes "do you think the old man has my wizard name yet?" I asked them. Somer shrugged and Hunters eyes widened. "Hmm?" I looked over and saw Merle Ambrose with a clipboard in his hand, he looked rather shocked.
"What's the matter?" Hunter asked him worryingly and Merle Ambrose said my new wizard name in an ancient tone-
