WHERE AM I?

CHAPTER 1

I have seen the mystics play there
Once or twice but I knew they had a reason
Enchantment plays it's cards all right
Hand in hand with the working of the seasons

Legends can be now and forever
Teaching us to love for goodness sake
Legends can be now and forever
Loved by the sun, loved by the sun
Loved

Two and two go so close together
Whether there is hope that is torn apart
In the words of all that's singing
Hand in hand the beginning is at the start

Legends can be now and forever
Teaching us to reach for goodness sake
Legends can be now and forever
Loved by the sun
Loved by the sun
Loved

Who sings of all of love's eternity
Whose shines so bright
In all the songs of love's unending spells

Only lightning strikes all that's evil
Teaching us to love for goodness sake
Hear the music of love eternal
Teaching us to reach for goodness sake
Legends can be now and forever
Teaching us to love for goodness sake

Ashley finished singing one of her favorites songs. She was walking in the woods listening to her remix of songs that she had gotten off of her computer back at her house. She got to the top of the hill and looked out to her town. A pink, orange, and red sunset she saw painted the sky.

"Oh, how beautiful," she said. She took off her CD player and held it in her hand. She sat down on the leafy ground in her blue jeans and black sweater, and underneath she wore a tank top.

Ashley was 17 years old, had a sister, and lived with her mother. She was studying to be a novelist. She loved to read and create stories. Naturally, she was passing English with an A+. The wind blew around her long brunette hair that she wore down on occasion. Her face was alight with black make-up. Black always brought out her eyes.

The date was October 3rd. October as one of her favorite months. the beautiful scenery, the Halloween decorations, and of course the drop of temperature. What could she say? She loved the cold weather.

Ashley sat still for a bout a ½ hour watching the sunset before it started to get dark. The woods were dangerous at night, so she headed home. She put on her music and listened to her favorite song in the world. "Away From Me" artist Evanescence (AN: my fav. song too!)

Ashley was so busy listening to her music that she didn't hear her cell phone ring form her pocket. It was her mother asking her where she was and to come home. Ashley was only paying attention to her music, that she didn't even see a vortex open up behind her.

She felt a strong wind pulling her from behind, so she looked behind her and saw a vortex. What would any girl do? Scream; so she did. Her scream went unheard as she was pulled through and landed hard on the ground. Back in the woods, her cell phone and CD player were left on the ground.

"Ugh. Okay that hurt," she said. She sat up and brushed her long brunette hair out of her face. "Where am I?" she asked looking around. It was a forest, no doubt about that. The leaves were still green. Birds were chirping. Horses were whinnying. "Wait horses? Maybe someone can tell me where I am," she said as she followed the neighing.

As she was walking, she felt hot, so she took off her sweater and tied it around her waist. Then she noticed that both her CD player and cell phone were gone. "Just my luck," she said as she pushed branches out of her way until she came to a small stream.

Once there, the whinnying stopped. "What a bother," said Ashley. She decide to rest a little so she walked into the water after she took off her shoes. She pulled up her jeans, so not to get them wet. She put some of the water on her neck to cool off. "Feels good," she said.

On the other side of the stream were 2 white unicorns watching her every move. Ashley felt the Earth move a little. She looked up and saw 2 unicorns galloping full speed right to her. She ducked her head as water splashed on her. Both of them were neighing and galloping around her in a circle. Then they stopped. Ashley looked up.

In the distance they were standing still. "Unicorns," she whispered. "Just like that movie Legend," she whispered. The stallion heard her and turned his long crested neck to look at her. Ashley bowed down in respect. The stallion very slowly and cautiously walked to her. Ashley could see him coming nearer and nearer.

Ashley started to hum a little tune in her throat, after all what creature wouldn't want to heat her voice? She looked up and saw that the stallion stopped.

The whispers in the morning
Of lovers sleeping tight
Are rolling like thunder now
As I look in your eyes

I hold on to your body
And feel each move you make
Your voice is warm and tender
A love that I could not forsake

(First chorus)
'Cause I am your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
I'll do all that I can

Lost is how I'm feeling lying in your arms
When the world outside's too
Much to take
That all ends when I'm with you

Even though there may be times
It seems I'm far away
Never wonder where I am
'Cause I am always by your side

While singing both unicorns came over and kneeled down. Then they lied down in the water. Both of them put their huge heads in her lap.

(Repeat first chorus)

(Second chorus)
We're heading for something
Somewhere I've never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But I'm ready to learn
Of the power of love

The sound of your heart beating
Made it clear
Suddenly the feeling that I can't go on
Is light years away

(Repeat first chorus)

(Repeat second chorus)

Once she finished, both unicorns had their eyes closed. "Now this is what I call magic," she said. She put her head on their heads. Her brunette hair fell onto their cheeks.

Then the unicorns bolted up. Both were rearing and stomping the ground. Ashley had no idea what they were doing. "are you mad with me or something?" she asked. The mare shook her head no. her long silver mane flew with her head. "Are you applauding me?" she asked. The stallion nodded his head and whinnied. Ashley smiled. "Thank you," she said.

Then without warning, both unicorns bolted. Ashley gasped and backed up a little. They were heading the other direction.Ashley quickly got her shoes on and ran after them."Wait!" she called. She ran after them. While running, Ashley got a good look where she was.

As far as she could tell, she was in the same forest she was just in before jumping through the vortex. She was so busy looking, she didn't know someone was following her.

Finally, the unicorns stopped near the bank of the river. They were standing in front of something. Ashley went up to them. They both stepped aside to reveal another unicorn…whose alicorn was gone. "Oh no," said Ashley kneeling down. She touched where the alicorn was supposed to be. "Whoever did this will pay," she whispered.

Ashley stood up with thoughts of revenge in her mind. "Alright you two, listen to me," she said taking the unicorns heads in each arm. "I have a plan, but to do it I have to put your lives on the line. Do you trust me?" she asked. Both unicorns nodded their white heads. Their long silver mane glistened in the sun.

"Okay, now here is the plan," she said.
