The Destination of Vanessa EmeraldGlade IV

All of the teachers words were just "Blah blah blahs" to me as I worried about how everything here would turn out. I mean, people now think I’m a wanna-be from a planet I bet they never heard of since they obviously think everyone believes in magic. Maybe this is just how they all act, except for Eva, Jessie and Mason. Eh, at least I have them.
The bell rang, but I just sank into my chair, trying to hide from all the other students. I didn't notice I was sinking off my chair and I fell of the floor. I few people laughed and continued out of the classroom. I squirmed a little and got up and rushed from the class.

I made my way over to our dorm room. In our mailbox was a letter addressed to me. Maybe it's my mom. I grabbed it from the mailbox and ripped it open.

Dear Vanessa,

I need you, Catherine, Rocka and Jessica
to my office in The Commons. Please come
as soon as you get this, it's very important.
Thank you.

Headmaster Ambrose

I unlocked the door and looked if anyone was in there. By the looks of it, no one was in there, until I say a book. Jessie.

"Jessica?" I asked

"Oh, hello! How was your first lesson?" She asked putting down here book

"Uh," I said thinking about the embarrassment "Nevermind that, I got a letter from the Ambrose that we need to go to his office with Catherine and Eva. Can you help me find them?"

"Oh sure! Eva is in school right now and Catherine is probably waiting for Mason outside the life school. I go get her, you get Eva" She said

"OK" I replied. We both split both ways- she went left and I went right. I passed the storm school and went to the ice schools doors. The building was the same as the storm school except the lightning engravings were icicles. I pushed open the door and walked into the middle of a lesson.

"Excuse me?" I said looking for the teacher

"Over here!" squeaked a tiny little fairy with blue hair, clothes and wings. She looked like my grandma... "Can I help you with something, my dear?"

"Yes," I showed her the letter from the Headmaster "I need Rocka"

She read the letter and then spoke "Oh my, it's time! Good luck!" She squeked

"Uhh.. OK. Come on Eva" I said

She scrambled for her books and hopped over a few chairs and walked out of the classroom with me

"What do we need to do?" She asked

"I don't know, I got a letter earlier that the Headmaster needs Catherine, Jessy, you and I" I explained

"Then where's Catherine?" She asked

"Jessie is getting her... She probably wouldn't listen to me" I said

"Oh, OK" Said Eva. Just then we saw Jessie and Catherine walking over to us

"But I still can go on my picnic with Mason, right?" Asked Catherine

Jessie looked over at her rolling her eyes "Sure. Vanessa, should we go to him now?"

"Yeah" I replied

We walked through the tunnel and into the Commons. The Commons was bustling with students, even more than Ravenwood! Some adults were walking around but the majority of the citizens were probably children. We walked through the gates to Merle Ambrose's house and hopped up the steps and opened the door. The room was really messy with stacks of paper and books, red wallpaper, an engraved desk with potion flasks and enrollment forms, bookshelfs that were holding more than they could carry, and a portrait of the headmaster on the back wall.

"Ah, girls, you made it! I have an important quest for you four. I need you to travel to Krokotopia" Said the Headmaster

"Uhh, Krokotopia?" I asked

"Ugh," said Catherine "does she not know about the other worlds of the spiral? I swear, I should have been chosen for the savior student... not this idiot" She complained

"Catherine just give up already.." Nudged Jessie

"Settle down girls. Vanessa, Krokotopia is another world of the spiral." Explained Ambrose "Malistaire, the former death teacher has traveled to Krokotopia in search of the Krokenamicon, a book the kroks wrote long ago that contains the power of life and death. If he finds it, there's no telling what he could do with that power. That’s where you guys come in, I need you to travel to Krokotopia and defeat Malistaire before he reached the Krokenomicon!" He told us

"Ok, so I just joined the school, and I now have to defeat a teacher that went evil?" I asked "And why did he turn evil anyway?"

"Malistaire became evil when his wife, Sylvia, the former life teacher died. He went into a deep depression and when he came out from his shell, he was furious. He disappeared and a day later, our death school was gone." Explained Ambrose

"OK, sooo what do we have to do?" Asked Eva

"Here," said Ambrose holding out a key "take it and go to Bartleby the Great Tree, tell him I sent you to him and he will tell you guys what to do"


We walked out of the building and too Ravenwood and came to Bartleby. Bartleby was an ancient overgrown tree in the center of the school’s campus. We had to yell his name a bit for him to hear us, and then he told us to go into his beard/mouth. Inside was beautiful greenery all aligned and tiny bits of light sneaking between his leaves. We took a step forward and he explained what we had to do

"Take the key to Krokotopia, and put it in the keyhole of the door that stands before you." He explained

We followed his directions and opened up the door. We walked through the doorway and appeared in a Egyptian type of building with statues of lizards and dented stone floors and walls. As we walked in a large lizard in an apron shrieked at the sight of us.

"P-please don't hurt me almighty wizard! Please!" He begged.

"OH MY GOSH!" Squealed Jessie "A MANDER!"

"A mander?" I asked

"Y-yes" said the 'Mander' "We are Manders, the original owners of Krokotopia!" He was kind of funny looking and reminded me of Dobby in Harry Potter.

"Oh, OK," I said "well, we aren't here to hurt you. We need to 'help' you I think?"

"Ugh, no" said Catherine "We're here to defeat Malistaire, not help these filthy peasants- I mean these wonderfully cultured beings."

Eva looked over at Catherine, then back to the mander “Have you seen a man with black nail polish, a big staff, black cloak and about twice the size of me?” She asked

“Actually, yes we manders did see a wizard come here earlier, along with those nosey Marlybonians! They’ve woken the kroks once more and we don’t know how to get rid of them!” Complained the mander

Jessie’s eyes grew big “WE CAN HELP YOU DEFEAT THEM!” She offered

“No we can’t!” Shouted Catherine replying to Jessie’s offering

“Really!” Said the mander with astonishment “Oh, thank you great wizard! You can ask one of the Marlybone officials what to do first, he’s just outside!”

“OK!” said Jessie skipping outside

“Well,” huffed Catherine “We better go follow her.”

“Thank you once again, wizard!” Called the mander “Good luck on your courageous journey!"

We walked outside into a deserty island. The was a large oasis in the middle and bridges connecting chunks of land together.

"Oh, there's one!" Pointed out Jessie. She was so excited, maybe because she has finally gotten to the lands she read about. We walked over to a large dog standing to two back legs and in a french soldier suit. He had excellent posture for a dog, all of them do.

"What ho!" Greeted the dog "Hello young wizards! Are you here for a field trip? Not the best time..."

"No, we're here to find Malistaire before he gets the krokonomican" I explained. He almost had a stroke when I said that, he started panting and breathing heavily, "Is-Is there a probably, sir?"

"Excuse you!" He said disgustingly

"What did I say?" I asked

"Malistaire?" Suggested Eva, though the official just shoke his head, continuing to hyperventalate

"No, idiots" said Catherine "She said krokonomican"

And then the dog fell to the sandy ground, passed out.
