Wills POV

"A five hundred word book report!" Cornelia Hale complained as we walked out of Sheffield Institute. "Five hundred!"

"Get over it Corny", said Irma Lair kiddingly.

"Have I mentioned don't call me Corny?" Cornelia asked.

"About a hundred thousand times", said Hay Lin and Irma at the same time.

"Oh brother", Taranee Cook rolled her eyes and smiled. Just your normal group of gaggling girls leaving school after a way to long day. Unfortunately, we're not normal.

My name is Will Vandom. My friends' call me the leader of the group, and I guess am. Irma, Taranee, Cornelia, Hay Lin, and I are the Guardians of the Veil. The Veil is a magical barrier that protects our world, Earth, from the evil that is Meridian. Meridian is ruled by Phobos, who wants to take over the universe. That's where the guardians come in. You see, sometimes portals appear in the veil, and it's our job as guardians to close the portals. Let me guess what you're thinking right now: the world is doomed. Well we're not completely powerless, thankfully. We have powers.

Like me. I am the keeper of an ancient crystal called the Heart of Candracar, which gives the other guardians power. I also have power over absolute energy (and I have a talking fridge).

Irma is the water guardian. She can control water, and make it do whatever she wants. She a comedian, and is always ready with a joke, good times or bad.

Taranee is the fire guardian. That is a skill that could come in handy. Taranee is a good student, who can also be shy at times, and doesn't really like to speak her mind or anything like that.

Cornelia is the earth guardian. Enough said with that one. She is fashion obsessed, and cares absolutely nothing for school. Just a big waste of time to her.

Hay Lin is the air guardian. She could make little gust or great big hurricanes. She is a breezy sort of person, who is carefree, and a natural peacekeeper.

We call ourselves W.I.T.C.H. Hay Lin had made it up, it was just the first letter of all our names put together.

We had been guardians for…how long has it been? I don't even remember.

"Five hundred!" Cornelia said, snapping me out of my thoughts. She couldn't get over that report.

"Get over it!" Irma, Taranee, and Hay Lin said at the same time. I just smiled. My friends could be very nuts at times.

"Hm?" something was vibrating in my pocket, and for a second I thought it was my cell phone. Until I remembered that my phone was in my backpack.

"What's wrong Will?" Taranee asked. I had stopped walking, and was pulling a certain necklace out of my pocket. The Heart was glowing.

"Great", Cornelia groaned. She basically despised anything having to do with guardians.

"What do you think?" I asked, looking around at my friends.

"Either a portal, or a monster", said Irma.

"Gee you think?" said Cornelia sarcastically.

"Don't start with me Corny", said Irma threateningly.

"Don't call me-"

"Don't start", I snapped, not in the mood to listen to Irma and Cornelia fight.

"The Heart's pointing in that direction", said Hay Lin, pointing westward.

"Lets' go then", I said, in the mood to investigate.

We walked for awhile, and before we knew it, we were at the river. And a portal was there.

"Great", I muttered. I hated portals.

"I wonder if anything came through", Taranee said thoughtfully. Great. I hadn't even thought of that.

"I'm not waiting for something to come through to find out", I said finally. I held up the crystal and prepared to close the portal.

"Uh Will?" said Hay Lin, looking at the portal in a terrified way. "Look"

I looked at the portal. And saw something that really freaked me out. Something that actually scared me. A giant snake.

"Oh boy", I whispered, backing away from the portal. "Cedric"

Cedric was the leading man (if you can call him that) in Phobos's army, and a giant snake. Well, most of the time. He did have the power to transform into a human. But that's beside the point.

"Will do something!" Hay Lin yelled. Cedric was on the attack.

"Okay", I said. "Lets do this. Guardians Unite!"

I held up the crystal, and gave the others their powers.




I was kind of relieved once we were in guardian form. At least now we stood a chance.

"Water!" Irma yelled, shooting a blast of water at Cedric, and hitting him squarely in the side of the head. He didn't even flinch.

"Uh oh", Irma said, before turning and flying away.

"Help!" Hay Lin squealed as Cedric turned on her. She took off, but not before creating a hurricane to distract Cedric.

"Cornelia, do you think you can restrain him?" I asked the Earth guardian. She nodded, and drifted back toward the ground (we had been flying).

"Earth!" she yelled, summoning the ground. Vines whipped up around Cedrics' arms, and tightened, immobilizing him.

"RRRRAAAAAHHHHH!" he roared, pulling against the vines. We were so happy about defeating Cedric, that we missed one thing: his tail was still free.

Before anyone knew what was happening, he whipped his tail at the bridge, and knocked some very big pieces off.

Next thing I knew, nothing but darkness.

(Heh, cliff hanger. Until next time then!)
