Carter here! Pretty self-explanatory, huh? Sadie let me go first because, after all, I am the smartest{Ow, Sadie!}. I meant to say the story started with me anyway. Jeez that hurt.

Jaz needed me to pick up a medical book for her because the website she gets her books from crashed. Is the book a mortal book? Yes, I guess she wants to learn mortal medical skills since she already knows alot about medical magic. Sadie, on the other hand, wanted me to be her "pack mule" so she handed me a list of books she wasn't going to read because: a. She doesn't read{really not that big of a shocker, Sadie} b. They were books that were 3" thick. So I left out.

I tried the bookstore around the corner, but it was closed along with another one five blocks away. Then I recalled Jaz said she used to order books from a store a little deeper in Manhattan. Trust me, I'm not usually the one to be reckless or break the rules, but I was feeling lucky. Plus, the flying horse I saw sparked my curiosity. I decided I would get in and get out. Simple.

103 steps in and I relaxed a little. No monsters or magicians anywhere. It seemed safe so I started to wonder why Amos wouldn't let us come here. Twenty more minutes passed and I was in front of the store. Then I saw a guy driving a Prius up the road. Did I say driving? I meant wrecking the street with his car as a weapon. He was swerving like a madman, but barely missing everything around him( Thank Ra). I decided not to let it bother me.

I walked into the store and saw a cafe and beyond that the books. Shelves and shelves of books. They had alot of books, but Brooklyn House had soooo much more.

The cashier was the creepiest out of everything I noticed in the store. I walked up to her to ask where the medical section was, but her eyes caught my attention. There was a strange glint in them and behind that...red. It looked like your eyes whenever you sit at a computer screen for hours on end. I snapped out of it asked where the medical stuff was."Just walk over to the back shelf and look for the sign that says"Valetudo". Then you're there." Her voice was smooth and enticed me to ask her where she's from, but I remembered I was here to get books so I said,"Thanks.", and went on my way.

I saw alot of books so it took me a while to find the one Jaz needed, but I found it. I walked through the" Aedificium Edificium" (the store needs to think of better names for the signs). I had no idea what that meant but I guessed it was architecture because of the books on the shelves.

All the sudden my eyes throbbed and I felt dizzy. My ears started to bleed, and I thought If I don't get out, I'll lose my mind! I bolted for the door. My reflexes kicked in and I almost dodged everyone in my way. Almost. I ran into a guy looking at Greek architecture.

He flew maybe three feet and I flew four. It was funny because I wasn't feeling any pain from my eyes or ears anymore(Ironic, huh).

After I regained my bearings, I sat up groggily only to find the guy I ran into offering to help me up.

I then realized that he was the guy that was driving the Prius. He had black hair and deep, sea-green eyes. He also had a light tan. I could tell he was strong even though he didn't have big muscles.{Sadie, I don't care whether you think he's cute or not! This is my recording!).

I took his hand and he helped me up."Sorry about that, dude." I said sheepishly." "Nahhh, it's alright. Just watch your speed. The speed limit in here is two mph." I chuckled a little bit.

We both looked at each other as something clicked in my head. My mindset was immediately, ' I have to pull my sword first!'

I had no time to think about it as we locked swords.
