Writing Prompts: The first time I realized I was a wizard.
Rock and roll were all I knew how to do, I was happy entertaining people and letting them have fun through my performance. Rock and roll was my life! I had no idea that I could have anything within me aside from that until that day.
Out of exasperation, I moved a little bit closer, moved my hands carelessly in the air with a finger pointing towards the drums, I suddenly noticed some sort of glow at the tip of my finger and I wondered what it was and when I looked towards him, I noticed that his hands and the drumsticks were frozen. I was terrified!
The rest of the band members were amazed, they came towards me asking how I did it, me, on the other hand, kept saying I didn't do anything but they all saw it and they were sure I did something. The drummer with the frozen hands kept freaking out about his icy hand which didn't feel like it was part of his body anymore but everyone else was more bothered about how I did it.
“Maybe only a similar power that froze his hands can defreeze him”, someone said
And he was right! They told me to do the “magic” again but i wasn't sure if it will work this time. I moved my hands, in the same way, I did earlier and all it did was add another coat of ice to the already frozen parts and now, even some parts of the drum. I moved my hands again in a totally different way, and this time, his body moved like I was controlling him. I didn't know what I had done, and I didn't know how to undo it. The other band members kept watching like it was some fascinating show while for me and the drummer, it was more like a terrible experience that we will rather not witness.
It was after several trial and error, (one which actually made him fall off his seat, that was when I used my eyes in some way) that I finally succeeded in defreezing him. I released some sort of heat when I moved my hands (together with one of my legs I guess) in a way that I can't even remember, it was just luck.
I took my guitar and headed home being careful of my every step as I walked home. I have been unusually quiet since after the ice incident, I was filled with so many unanswered questions, uncertainty and a bit of rage. I had asked the band members to keep it a secret and I believe they sure did.
As I walked home, I heard this woman shout for help I tried tracing the voice and found out that she was being robbed. I decided to help the woman out since I at least could do some sort of magic. I moved my hands in the air as I did earlier, and this time, his whole body of the robber was frozen. I didn't know what to expect when I lifted my hands in the air but I am glad it did work, the woman was thankful and unlike most people, she didn't bombard me with countless questions which I was grateful for.
The next day, I stayed home so I could research on places to go find help. I was wise enough to know that I wasn't gonna receive any help from the hospital, for all I know, they are gonna make fun of it all, well, until I prove them wrong. I kept searching the internet but it seemed like it had little to no details about such powers, I needed to meet someone, someone that can understand all of these. But there was none!
I decided to go for a stroll around evening time and that was when I saw someone use their power. I am sure he didn't know I was looking at him plus if I had seen that on any other day, then I would have thought that he did some kinda trick to make it work. Well, that was my breakthrough….
He took me to this place that seemed like an underground building, it was the school of wizardry, as they called it. I was scared at first but I needed to trust him if I wanted to receive help from him. He seemed like one of the good ones but I couldn't say for sure.
He introduced me to a few more people there and then, his teacher. he told the teacher how we met, who I was and what I wanted, the teacher sat me down and explained what the process entailed and an alternative too.he said I have the genes of wizards and even though there is no recent family member that is one and the last could probably be centuries ago, that gene have chosen to be dominant in me.
I had no patience of going through those books and I certainly didn't want to be at risk of losing my life or my memory. But I had no option but to stick with the book. “It's crazy how we never know about the existence of a certain group until we become part of them or need their help”, I thought. I didn't know whether to be fascinated, scared or amazed at all that has happened. One thing was for sure, I love performing and I wanted to do anything that will let me get back to my old self.
This teacher told me a whole lot more. He told me about the different categories of wizards that exist and this happens to be those that are out to do good. I was glad that I fell into the right hands because I definitely wouldn't wanna harm anyone. Well, except for the guy from last night, maybe?😉
I was back to my normal life once again, actually, life wasn't as normal as it used to be, my friends will bug me to do some “magic” for them or do task they can easily do with my new powers but it was still life anyways and I love it.
Much Love — Audrey❤
