Academy of Secrets Chapter 1Welcome to the Eversmith Academy, hard to get into, hard to get out.
thought a young boy as he looked up at the school.
This, was Davey.
He was about 16, but he was small for his age, and scrawny too. He was wearing the school uniform, similar to a casual suit, and he had a green backback on his shoulder.
His gray eyes looked up at the school sadly, it was a brown, brick building, supposedly it used to be a castle. He could believe it too, it had rounded towers, and even rounded front doors, but it also had a modern feel that seemed to pervert the wonderful medieval tone it naturally gave off.
Davey pushed one of the stray black hairs away from his face. He could still remember when he'd dyed it, his parent had flipped when they saw the green streaks mixed with the black, how long it would last, he was still dying it, he liked how it looked.
He fiddled with his earring, a long, thin silver chain that had a small green leaf at the end.
“Well...” he said to himself.
Academy of Secrets PrologueBeep....beep....beep...
It was a gray stone room, with high tech machines lining the walls, and a round, green platform in the middle that seemed to pulsate with a soft light in time with the beeping made by the machines.
Men in labcoats hurried about, doing diagnostic scans on each device and writing on their clipboards. One stood in the middle, his face drawn taught, his blue eyes cold behind his glasses. He ran a hand over his bleach blonde hair that had been drawn back in a short pony tail.
He was in charge here.
One of the assistants walked up to him, a rather mousy fellow, his hair and eyes a deep brown.
“Professor Jerone, there is a slight error in the main machine, what shall I do?”
Professor Jerone didn't turn, his facial expression unmoving as he responded.
“Jecks, try increasing the power input. I do not believe it is getting enough juice for what we are trying to do.”
The assistant, Jecks, nodded, then scurried off to do as his superior instructed.
