Chapter 1: New Start
I was staring into the starry sky as I hold the one half of amulet in my clasp. Lyze and I are sitting by a fire and the heat comes off it and is heating my beautiful feathers I start to beak it and burn it in the fire. He follows my lead and we watch the metal amulet melt with an ebony stone on Mordecai's side and a Pearl on Cheyenne's. I pike at it with a stick, majorly burning it when I pull it out.
"We did it, young goddess. They will never use that accursed amulet now. Back from the burning heat it was forged before bloods combine to form its unholy power." He states
"Yes… It has finally ended. Maybe then the worlds will be at peace and I will not be killed for my powers." I reply
"The gods work in a strange way, Barran. You have been gifted with the power to control the moonlight. That means, if you die, the moon will not shine and everything will become devastated. Only until daylight, that is." He says
"I am lucky we were able to destroy that goddam amulet. It made me leave my devastated home life in the North to do it… and my love, Boron. General Kai wasn't too happy when I had announced my leaving. Now, I realise my importance to protect my power. I know Nyra will someday get me for destroying the amulet, but it was the only way to stop her." I announce
"That battle may have not killed them, but we were able to take that amulet. Now it is gone and the forces are just. Your powers have returned have they?" He asks
"Yes." I reply
(Flashback: 2 days ago)
"You will not take the amulet from me! The power will be mine!" Nyra announces
"Never!" I reply
We struggle and then I take the amulet. She charges at me with speed and then I hand the amulet to Lyze and then I charge at her. We fight and rumble. I knock the 13 year old into the wall and she falls unconscious. Her Tyto body lying against the wall that I had slammed her into. I calm myself and then we fly away to the safe haven that we are in now.
(End of flashback)
"Barran, you zoned out there. Are you alright?" He asks
"I just… Nothing. Just another flashback. The full moon and my powers, must be causing this to happen." I reply
"Barran!" I hear a voice yell
"Who was that?" I announce
I walk outside of the cave and I see a familiar snowy owl approaching. I look and I can't believe my eyes.
"Boron!" I announce
He lands and I go and give him a hug. It has been so long. He hasn't changed a bit really. He has his gold eyes and white, with grey and black marking fathers and the happy, but serious smile. We met during our service in the Kielian League. He was an aristocrat and I am just a girl who… Well… Was very good at things, but had a bit of a rough childhood. I hate to say to, but our families hate each other and… it is over a stupid something that they will never tell me of. I bet they are fighting over something that would be utterly insignificant in this stage. What a bunch of idiots! I am star-struck when I see him and my gold eyes light up.
"You left the North? …But you…" I say
"I don't care. I have been there and didn't want to live another moment without you. I know I was going to marry Princess Shia'ja under the wishes of my father, but she wasn't as cute and other words, smart and witty as you." He says
"You ran away for me? Oh Boron…" I swoon
"I love you, Barran. I would never, ever let you go. When you left, it may have been over in the North, but I don't give a shit either way. We are sadly, Romeo and Juliet and I want that to end. No I mean seriously. That is really a pain." He replies
"Our families weren't going to allow us to be together, but that is going to end. We are never going back, my dearest love. If they don't accept our love, we will run away… Ok… I don't know where we are going with this… I admit I was excited, but I don't know what to do." I add
"Well… It will come to us sooner or later." He says
"Hold on, Barran. Have remembered something. The prophecy of… Oh, I forgot about the…" Lyze announces
I say to him in Naya'va that we will discuss this privately. The truth is, I have refrained from telling Boron my secret and I will never tell him. I don't want to tell him of why my parents have been killed. They were killed only as my powers are as important as Cheyenne's back in the past. Goddess of the Moon is one of the few gods that are living. The Goddess Power has been passed onto me, but I don't know why. The Schana has the goddess power to control the moon inside of their bloodline, through their heritage. I however was born of Pure Heart, which is why I was born to be the goddess. We discuss the Ga'Hoole Prophecy and I am somehow doubtful. It says that two, one of courageous and noble heart and the other blessed by the moon, would take the throne after Hoole. We then come back and then I realise what it means.
"Boron, we will be leaving the North forever. Even if we are together and never will see our families again, we are going to find a way to cope. We are going to a place called Ga'Hoole." I announce
"What is the strange sense now? You usually have a dream that clouds your thought. I knew that look." He replies
"What look?" I ask
"That one: The "OMFG" look." He replies
"Oh you little…" I reply
"Ahem. Barran, something has just happened behind you." Lyze informs me
I look up and see that the moon has rotated for some reason. I tilt my head to one side and then comment in Naya'va "Did I just do that?". Lyze replies, "The powers are more concentrated than we thought." We then return to speaking English. Boron is confused from what I am saying, as he doesn't speak a word of Naya'va, as he was never taught it, like most of the population.
"What were you looking at?" he asks
"Nothing. Just something that isn't important" I reply, coving up my goddess secret
"The night is still young, you said that we would go to this place called "Ga'Hoole". Will we be going while it is still dark?" He asks
"Come on then, young'uns. Before Nyra comes to exact her revenge, Barran." Lyze says
"What… What was that?" He asks
"My dearest, I will explain what happened on the way." I reply
We take off and begin our trip. I explain why I had left and he understands why I had gone on my mission to destroy the amulet. I never mention my secret, as it will… I don't know what it will do, but I will never speak of it. I am bored now… I think I'll shut up for a while, I have been said that I talk a lot. I am going to shut up… Now!
Barran means the world to me. She is the one reason I have left. I do regret leaving my home and my family, but they were against me. Barran's family had been enemies (and I don't know why) with my family. It is like the Pure Ones against the Guardians of Ga'Hoole in the North with our families. Barran and I were a part of the Kielian League and we are fighters at heart.
I realise that I am never going back and say to myself that I will someday return, but will never speak to my family ever again. This is a big step, as I was brought up to hate the Lynai Family, as a Nyctea. When I think about it, why does Barran spend her time studying before she left. She can kick ass, but before she left with Lyze of Kiel, she would be studying all the time. I know knowledge is power, but she would read, and read, and read. She would be getting some sort of eye strain if she would be reading like that. She doesn't seem to care, seeing as we are still kids age-wise. We are both going to be 18 soon. I am older than Barran by a few months (two-three months) and she promises when she finally grows up, she will not remain a child. She is a child at heart, my Barran, and I love her all the same. She is serious when she finally remembers her age, after she has been having a bit of fun.
After a while, or what seems to be in my mind (as I am still tired from flying to where Barran was), we arrive at what is Ga'Hoole. There is a great big bonsai tree in the middle of the ocean? Then the Legend of Ga'Hoole is somewhat true of it is said that Goddess Cheyenne used her love and kindness to grow a great tree. Wow… I should really read more of the stuff Barran is reading about legends. The Great Tree of Ga'Hoole is its own kingdom technically and it is set up like a city (I remember this from one of Barran's books, when I was spying over her) and the Guardians of Ga'Hoole live here.
We land and we are looking around us in awe. Barran smiles and she gives me a look. I wonder in my mind about what she is thinking, but I immediately knew to smile back. I wonder something. What is she giving me that look for? What a cheeky devil she is!
Note: I may have mentioned Romeo and Juliet, but that is only for comparison.
