10 years have passed. The year 890 b.c. Deveen turned out to be really smart on top of his cuteness. With Theodore baking in the morning before we trained, and Jamira keeping orders done, all Deveen had to do was greet customers and run the register. Not many people read and write so the signs had a picture with the name of the place. On the commoner side of the capital I got picture orders, having to guess what the customer wanted, but here on the rich side, people can read and write. We had a drop box where people could place an order. It was Jamira's idea. She said me delivering orders by teleporting could help me focus more, and practice not being seen. We also trained on stacks of hay at the field. My goal was to burn the hay without burning what's around it. We started off with a pile, and it got smaller and smaller till it was a strand of hay. Theodore had me practice not using my fire, but instead a ball of light that burned t
As we rode into Trasion, I thought about how great things were going for me. I met my biological parents. I made 3 friends, and I learned how to use my powers. It had been 24 years since my family died. It was a crazy jornay, but I have a bakery, and soon a winery too. My mother and father would be proud if they were still alive. The thought of visiting them in heaven never left my mind, but Theodore still would not show me how to get to heaven. Jamira said if she knew how, she’d tell me, but heaven was not her domain. We enter Trasion easily. There was no fee to enter or live there other than you had to be a winemaker. My father was known well for his wine. Even though it was a small shop, dad’s wine was rare and delicious. He was offered his own factory many times, but he knew if he started a factory, he wouldn’t have time for his family. I told the duke of the town that I was his g
When I opened my eyes, I saw my family cottage. The 500 ackards of grapes and strawberries. The cottage I stayed in growing up, with my brother and sister helping me, and taking care of me… The bakery that we would work in with mother and father. I fell to my knees at the sight. “This can’t be real?!” Ezekiel looked at the cottage, but acted as he did not see what I did. “Only God can see what your heart truly desires.” I looked up at him, realizing that what I saw was just an illusion. I stood up, and took a deep breath. “What is it you see Ezekiel?” I was curious what an angel desired. He laughed. It was like my question was stupid. “I see what all angels see, and demons for that matter….
After my meeting with God, I decided to put the factory on hold. Instead we went to the housing part of town, and looked for a house. We wanted a 4 bedroom house, so that we would have a spare room if we made any new friends. It wasn’t hard to find one, because most of the houses here were big. Most factory workers have to bring their whole family with them. I’ve been told if they work for the right farmer, they get paid very well. I found a house that was very beautiful. It had a little flower bed in front of the house, going along the sides of the walkway leading to the house. Behind it was the farm lands. It was not 500 acres like my fathers, but it was still pretty big. This house had 250 acres. It was planty for a starter winery. We paid twice as much for this place, then we did for our house with the attic bedroom. We looked inside. There were two rooms up the stairs, and two do
My eyes open to the view of my bedroom. My head was throbbing with a pain I’ve never felt before. My body felt weak and cold. I looked down and saw my cover was pulled over me, as if someone had put me in my bed. What happened? I thought back to what I was doing. I remembered I came down stairs when I realized Theodore and Jamira had left… I made myself some breakfast, and… I think someone came into the house. That’s right, because I heard the door open. My thoughts on what happened next were fuzzy. I know I got up from the table to go look, but I don’t remember if someone was here. Was I so exhausted from last night that I went back to bed? Was someone even here? I looked over at the window in my room. The sun was high in the sky. I wasn’t sure what happened, but I did know I was supposed to be meeting Theodore and Jamira soon in town. I looked towards the door. If someone was here, I woul
Jamira and Theodore took the carriage and alsie to get the supplies. I did not want to walk to the square. I was already late. The sun was going down from it’s high peak in the sky. I could teleport there if it was not crowded, but I was not sure. I definitely could not fly. Too many people would see me. I took my chances by teleporting into the square. I closed my eyes, and imagined where I was trying to go. I took a deep breath. The smell of flowers, sound of wind, and birds faded away. The smell of bread, wine, and the sound of people rushing around took its place. I loved the sound of nature. This wine town though, took every beautiful thing, and turned it into work. People looked tired as they rushed from stores, and buildings. I understood it was hard to run a factory, but an honor. Most people work themselves to death. People saw this job as a blessing, because they worked for Queen Cecilia. She honored these families, because they kept t
Theodore opens the gate to the orphanage play yard. I walk down the path, looking in both directions at the kids playing. I started to get discouraged at the site of nothing, but humans. Theodore must have noticed my disbelief, because he grabbed my arm, wrapping his into my elbow, and led me forward. I shook off my disbelief. This was not the time to give up. I needed workers, and these children needed a home. Theodore opens the doors to enter the building. As we walked in, kids of all ages ran up to us. "Are you here to adopt us?" "Take me! Take me!" "I can work!"
Emma stood at the doorway, with fear in her eyes. Theodore walked up to her calmly. “ May I ask what you just saw?” His voice was the tone of an angel. I knew he was using his powers to get her to answer. I knew the voice he was using. It makes you feel calm, makes you forget what's going on around you. It draws you in as he speaks, making you want to answer whatever questions he has. I can barely fight it on a good day, he uses it on me only when he's worried about me. “I would love to, Theodore.” She walked closer to him as she spoke. “Lila got mad at the sight of these kids, and how they live. She looked at me in anger. I know I have done nothing to help though, so maybe I deserve it. Lila ran at me with her palms out; ready to slap me. You tried to stop
As we walked down the fields to get to our house, the kids ran, and played. It was like this was their first time being outside. They stopped to look at everything. They were interested by the way the plants grow, by the wind that made the trees dance, and by the sun that felt hot on their skin. I smiled at the sight of them running around. I had made the right choice. As we got to the walkway that led to our front doors, the children stopped mid play.“Are we to live here?” Tempest asked in awe.“Is it not to your likings?” I asked. I was not sure what they were expecting. We only had four rooms, but I had thought about what to do as we walked. Me and Jamira would share a room, while the twins would take Jamira’s room. Tempest can sleep downstairs in Theodores room. And for the last ch
