Wnztar

 In Boot Hill, Today's Feed

The wind cuts like ice biting into ones flesh. Winter was upon them. She drew strength from the cold. Her gift was a treasure and curse. A power others longed to control.  As she descended the cobble stones steps the click of her feet echoed in rhythm with her heart beat. Her breath was like ice fire coming out of her mouth. She could not taste the cold, but she could see it.

She glanced out the window and froze. A large army was marching through the frozen snow. They were here and coming for her. Her heart raced, she had to save the people. Through her eyes she focuses on the cloud. She let her anger take hold, fire shot from her eyes. The clouds in the sky begin to gather and whirl around together. She spun herself around and around with each action the clouds begin to spin together.

Then she spun and ran with all her strength in the directions of the snow cloud. She had created a beautiful set of tornadoes. She used her arms to mentally push the tornadoes into the snow cloud. The arm of Gastone was split in two and thrown in the air like bouncing balls. The battle had been won.

The armies of Gastone would not take her people today, but they were not safe as long as she was here. If Gastone knew she was here others knew she was here. It was time to leave.

Wnztar rounded the corner from the tower and saw her people scrambling around to prepare for battle. Her blue eyes met her brother’s gaze. She spoke to him through their connective energy. It was time. She needs to leave. Wallnr was worried. He had promised his father he would keep her safe. But he needed to keep his World safe, his people safe, his children safe. Wnztar let him know she would send word as soon as she arrives safely. And she would make sure Gelu; her home planet would always be safe.

The Wnztar closed her eyes and commanded that she be taken to a new place.

Choose your own adventure. Choose your own ending:

1).

She opened her eyes. The sky was black like a starless night. She was in a small ally. The walk way was damp from a fresh rain. The buildings were all painted and sprayed upon by the night thugs. Garbage cans lined the narrow walk way, each one looking like it had taken a few beatings. She glazed around. She needed to transform and fast. Where was she? What planet? She needed to fit in. She tucked herself behind some beat up garbage cans. The stench from them made the bile from her stomach creep into her throat. She needed to see a citizen and soon. She knew her blond locks, pale skin and her gender would be gone soon, but before she could change she needed to see someone anyone.

Then they march past. Short hairy beasts with no clothing, long hair covered their bodies. She closed her eyes and focused on the beast. A breeze came over her. Ooc opened its eyes and glanced down, Ooc was a hairy creature, perfect I will blend now. Ooc had one task to do, before Ooc began a new life. Ooc closed its hairy eyes. Ooc zoomed into the plant Gelu. Ooc surrounded the plant with power. A strong hold no one could break. Ooc sealed the planet a second time with love. (These spells only become stronger if Ooc were to die. A secret no one knew.)

Wallnr saw a light shine across the sky. He smiled. Wnztar was safe.

2).

She opened her eyes. The land was plush with yellow vines. She was in a field. The flowering vine smelled like fresh rain. In the distance she saw a small stone cottage. Wnztar glazed around. She needed to transform and fast. Where was she? What planet? She needed to fit in. Wnztar floated to the window of the cottage. Macar was weaving. Wnztar closed her eyes. The windswept over her.

There was a knock on the door. Macar opened the door. She stared at the one eyed man. Macar study his familiar features. Then she realized it was her brother Zeed. Macar laughed for a second she had forgotten she had a brother. Zeed had come to help with the harvest.

Zeed had one task to do, before Zeed began his new life. Zeed closed his eyes. He zoomed into the plant Gelu. Zeed surrounded the plant with power. A strong hold no one could break. He sealed the planet a second time with love.

Wallnr saw a light shine across the sky. He smiled. Wnztar was safe.
