I sat in my circle, with my legs, crossed, hands resting on my knees. I felt the dark denim under my fingertips.
"Orior" I whispered softly, and ever so slowly, I began to rise.
I got about 5 inches off the floor, when I was interupted by a loud knock on the door. I lost my concenration and I fell onto my fluffy blue rug, elbows first, followed closely by my face.
"Bella? What are you doing in there? Let me in!" My mother's loud voice came through the door as she rattled the door knob trying to open it.
I sat up and grabbed a cloth, wiping away the chalk circle I had drawn on my wooden floor, then shoved everything quickly under my bed and stood up, dusting off my jeans.
"Expositus" I pointed at the door, and it unlocked to reveal my mother standing at the door.
"Bella, it's time to go." She looked around suspiciously. My mother had been trying to prove I was a witch for a year now, but I covered my ass pretty well.
Rule one of being a witch? Learn to cover your tracks.
"Okay mom, I'll be down in a minute. I just need to find my iPod, and then I'll be done." I smiled.
She nodded, and walked out the room, shutting my green door behind her after glancing around my room once more.
I flopped on my bed in relief, and pulled my dark blue iPod out from under my pillow. Setting it on my silver bedside table, I unzipped my suitcase.
Opening the secret compartment I made in it, I smoothed out the black silk, and put my magick stuff I had hidden in ordinary items into it, such as my Book of Shadows in a lime green hot water bottle.
Then I sealed the compartment shut, zipped up my suitcase and stood up, pulling out the handle and putting my iPod in my hoodie pocket.
I walked the few steps to the door, and turned around, looking at my room I had spent so long in.
Maybe one day, I would come back. Maybe not. But for now, I was going to Forks.
I picked up my suitcase, and shut the door, running my fingers over the smooth green wood of my door.
"Goodbye" I murmured, resting my forehead briefly against the door, closing my eyes. Then I opened them again, and stood up straight, and put a smile on my face, walking determindly down the stairs to a new beginning...
The End Of The Beginning Has Only Just Begun
"The two most common elements in the world are hydrogen and stupidity." Is what I found myself thinking whilst waiting at the airport.
Watching people run around like headless chickens was not on the top of my to-do list today.
Why, oh, why was I doomed to sitting in the airport for the next half hour?
"If there's a God up there, I may be on their shit-list at the moment..." I thought as I sighed in amazement at someone who tripped over a child on the floor.
My flight was delayed so I was stuck at the airport. My darling mother had rushed off after 10 minutes, claiming she needed to find Phil or something.
Gee, thanks mom!
I rested my head in my hands, then after a moment's thought, took out my iPod...
Only to find the battery was flat.
I hated doing magick in public, it was toeing the line a little, but I was desperate. I'd rather get in trouble for being seen then die of boredom in an airport.
I put my finger in the middle of my iPod and whispered "Onus"
And as if by magick, it charged.
I put the earbuds in my ears, and turned shuffle on.
First song was Contagious by Avril Lavigne.
I sat back, and pushed my brown hair away from my face, and daydreamed...
After the next few songs, I got gradually more and more annoyed with the music, so I turned my iPod off, and stuffed it in my suitcase.
I looked at the clock...it had been 20 minutes. 10 more minutes to kill.
I sighed impatiently, and saw a boy coming over to me. He pointed to the empty seat next to me and asked if it was free.
I said yes, and flopped back in my seat.
He sat down and looked at me.
"Hey, I'm Jacob"
He nodded. "Alright. Where you heading, then?" He asked.
"Forks. Well, Seattle, as Forks is too small to have an airport."
"Hey, same, but I'm going to the res in La Push." He grinned at me.
That rang a bell...
"La Push? What did you say your last name was?" I think I knew him...
"I didn't, but it's Black. What's yours?" He looked mildly confused.
"Swan. Don't I know you?"
"Oh, I know you now! You're Isabella Swan, Charlie's kid. He and my dad are best friends. We used to make mud pies together." He smiled widely.
That explains it.
"Cool." Then an announcement came over the intercom. "Hey, there's our flight, I should get going now. I'll see you around, yeah?" I stood up, and grabbed my suitcase.
"Cya round" He stood up and disappeared into the crowd.
I made my way over to the airplane, and boarded it, wandering up and down the aisles until I found my seat.
I stowed my suitcase overhead, and sat down by the window.
Time for the 5 ½ hour flight. I sighed.
A 60 year old came down the aisle wearing a pink flowery raincoat, flopped into the seat next to me, and offered me a boiled sweet, after introducing herself as Mabel. I took it. It was lime. Icky.
Pretty soon, they told us to fasten our seatbelts, so I did. Wuhoo, turbulence...I shut my eyes, and didn't open them until we were in the air.
After that was over, I took out my runes book and started looking through it. I really needed to finish learning the last bit of the alphabet. I started going over it in my head...
I think at some point, I may have dozed off, because when I came back to the real world, Mabel was shaking me to wake me up as we landed.
"Alright sweetie?" She asked.
I managed a nod, and sat up, pulling my hoodie down. We landed smoothly, and I got up and pulled my suitcase down. I waited until most people had gotten off, and I stood at the door.
I took a deep breath and stepped out into the sunlight where my new beginning started...
A/N: Like it? I loved the idea :) I might update tomorrow, so keep your eyes open, the people that are reading this. I hope there's some out there!
