“Ugh 5 more minutes,” I said as I chucked my artefact across the room.
I sat up bleary-eyed, my hair looking like a rats nest; why today of all days did I have to have a bad hair day. Curse the gods. I’ll never hear the end of it from Eifa. I fell back into the warmth and comfort of my bed, wishing I could stay there for all eternity. Out of frustration, I let out a deafening scream however it was slightly muffled (thank god) because of my pillow.
I had startled whoever was approaching my room because it had gone silent for a few seconds. The silence was bliss but was short-lived, the door flung open. Crashing into my desk sending a myriad of vails plunging towards the floor. As if by instinct I lunged, while still half asleep. I caught two vails in each hand, and one in between my teeth. With a flick of my wrist, I caught the others in a small pillar of water, I almost had a heart attack.
“Morning kris” she shouted, “wake up you're going to be late for school, I’m sure you don’t want that, especially on the first day.”
She turned her head to the side after seeing me, her grin widening ever so slightly. She bit her lips trying not to laugh, seconds later she burst into a fit of giggling.
“L..loo..look at your hair it’s a mess, and what are you doing eager to practice magic early in the morning I see” she wheezed while trying to wipe tears from her eyes and compose herself.
“It’s because of you dolt, you so did that on purpose; I’m so telling mum and dad, I have had enough of you walking into my room without knocking Yseult,” I said fuming
“Aww don't be like that Krisa, plus you won’t have to deal with me for the rest of the term,” she said.
“Andddddd…….” I suggested
“I’ll make you breakfast, so please don’t tell mother and father” she pleaded
“Deal,” I said while rearranging the vails.
She then left to get started on breakfast. I rushed to take a shower and then change into my uniform. The schools regular uniform consisted of a white long-sleeved blouse, navy blue vest, and a cravat the colour of your assigned house. It also has a ribbon sash (in our house colour’s) situated on the waist area where students carry their wands or other artefacts.
I ran out of my room and immediately stopped, pivoted and ran back into my room I almost forgot Something crucial. I quickly approached my desk and grabbed my wand. My wand is made out of Pear Wood, the handle is made out of Juniper Wood, the wand measures 12 inches and has a gilded handle.
Near the tip of the wand was the rune laguz the rune of the Norse god Njord. The characteristics of the Norse rune are water, intuition, and the Ebb and flow of emotions relations and vocations. Particularly, it announces the satisfaction of emotional needs. In the spite of the fact that everything flows appropriately at this moment, It often signals the need to cleanse, revalue, re-organise, re-centre. It indicates that the intuitive aspect of your nature is awake and therefore Laguz advise you to harness it. However, laguz reversed means so much more.
I rummaged around the draws for a bit looking for my pendant. When I couldn’t find it I felt my heart rate increase, my palms started to sweat I felt like I was about to crumble to the ground and die. My breathing quickened, my mouth went dry, I started to feel nauseous, I felt dizzy I couldn’t tell my left from my right and my head was thumping. I started to fumble through my pockets and I finally felt it around my neck. I felt a wave of relief wash over me. Crisis averted.
I made my way down the stairs, something smelt good I quickly realised it was my favourite, pancakes. Suddenly my day felt much better, after today’s hectic morning indulging in my favourite comfort food was probably the smartest thing to do. I had to hand it to Yseult, sometimes she could be an amazing older sister. Most of the time she was a pain in my arse. Maybe I was being harsh a bit harsh on her. I thought that for a few seconds before she decided to open her mouth.
“Hey four eyes you forgot your glasses” she called “you don’t wanna spend your first-day half-blind”
“Couldn’t you have phrased that better” I muttered, “anyway I’m finished let’s go?”
I'm really exited to be writing this. Please bear with me I'm not the sharpest tool in the toolbox.
