Vaara Chapter 5A circle of the floor beneath Alykas raised him to the ceiling, which he disappeared into. The thirteen beings were left alone in the middle of the room, glancing back in forth at each other, unsure of what to do.
Alex spoke first, "So, do we all speak different languages or what? Y'know, seeing as only four of us are human." Everyone just looked at him, until a large dog with yellow fur spoke up. "I was the first here, the fox told me that the atmosphere in this room allows everyone to understand each other." Her voice was slightly high-pitched, but it was easy to hear that she stored a lot of confidence.
Lloyd looked up from the dog to face everyone, "So, I guess we should introduce ourselves. I'm Lloyd, a geeky nerd who plays on his XBox 24/7." He signaled at the other humans to introduce themselves. "I'm Alex, I have a knack for goofing off and doing whatever the hell I want." Alex pushed Kim forward after speaking, allowing her a turn in the limelight. "I-I'm Kim, I l-like ch-choc
Vaara Chapter 4The wall behind Alykas opened once more, the fox and the four kids walking through it. The new room was considerably larger, with 9 translucent-doored hallways spreading across the walls. In the center of the floor was a large, blue, lighted circle. Paths of the same lighted blue material lead out from the circle and into each of the translucent doors.
Sitting in the circle were different creatures, all looking rather confused and nervous. The colors mixed in together, the center of the room a mix of yellow, brown, grey, blue, black, sea foam, and white. 9 heads turned to look at the four middle schoolers standing dumbstruck in the entrance. Alykas signaled for the four to join the others in the circle, and they did as expected. The suited fox now turned to face the circle, looking at all 13 faces.
"As you have been previously greeted, welcome to Vaara. For those who are missing information on the subject, meaning all of you, Vaara is the Violent Athletic And Resourcefulness Analysis.
Vaara Chapter 3The four kids found themselves in a room smaller than the computer lab. They had just fallen from a portal on the ceiling, now closed. The walls around them were white, and the smell of chemicals and medicines filled the air. Alex stood up, attempting to make a witty statement,"We're supposed to be in the computer lab, not the hospital."
The rest of them got up from the floor they had landed on, now looking around them at the medium sized room. "Each of us should inspect a wall, we need to find a way out of this prank." Dakota spoke up, pointing to each wall. The kids all chose a wall to inspect, patting and looking it over as thoroughly as possible.
"Guys, I don't know about this, what if this isn't a prank?" Lloyd looked at the bright ceiling light."W-well if this isn't a prank, then where are we?" Kim squeaked as she checked the floors. Neither of them had found anything useful, and retired to the corner where Alex and Dakota were sitting.
The four just looked around, not sure of wh
Vaara Chapter 2The door to the computer lab was wide open. As the four walked in, Lloyd was checking every computer for any files. Kim stood in front of the door, looking around to make sure no one was looking. "I think I found it, guys." Lloyd's voice broke the silence. Alex, Dakota and Kim walked over to the computer Lloyd had sat down in front of.
The screen looked fairly normal, the blue bar at the bottom, the rolling hills in the desktop, the recycling bin and internet browser on the left hand side. The only feature that kept this computer from the other computers was the little icon in the top right corner. The icon looked like some sort blurry mix of black and yellow.
"Vaaraâ¦" Dakota read the name of the file aloud. Kim squealed when she heard the word. "Y-you guys, vaara means hazard in finnish. I say we just leave." Three pairs of eyes turned to her questioningly. She blushed and quietly screeched "My mom is from Finland, she taught me it!"
Lloyd turned to look at the screen
Her CatalystAs she walks through the maelstrom, the words trace upon the tips of her fingers and press into the stone. Every brick, every crack in the concrete, every crossed and angular stroke in reds and blacks and oranges. The drips of the gasoline pool around the base of her boots, slosh as she steps over the burst pipes and the rubble.
So much rubble. So little outcry. The silence of the city grates on her eardrums and the mantras she'd been forced to memorize. The Seers demanded they observe thirteen years of recitation before they attempt to weave their first World together.
But who other than the Seers can claim the incantations that knot the skeins they twist and pull on like reins hold fast? When have any of the Sisters recorded the visions they traced upon space-time and recited them, left them open for critique and discussion and debate?
Which is why she walks through the chalky soot of the smashed city around her. This all
