Chapter 1




I'm Phoenix Worth. I know what your thinking. I have a weird first name. I have dark red hair and light hazel eyes. I'm thirteen years old and live in an orphanage called Saint Veronica Orphanage.

"Phoenix! Jack stole my rabbit!" Lucy cried barging into my room with her blond hair all tangled. She dragged me to Jack's room.

"Jack did you steal Lucy's rabbit?" I questioned.

"No. Why would I have that stupid thing?" He slammed the door on us.

"You see. He doesn't have it. Do you think you just misplaced it?" She shook her head.

"What about the lost and found box. Go there."

"Okay. Thanks Phoenix." I went back to my room. My room is small with a bed, a desk that might break if I put something on it, and my suitcase. I opened up the suitcase and took out a book. The Book of Fairytales and Myths. My father used to read it to me when I was little. My favorite one was called The Keeper. Mrs. Fritz takes care of us. It's only a small orphanage filled with seven kids. Henry is the oldest and works while I take care of the others. Mrs.Fritz walked into my room.

"Phoenix I think it's time you should work. I got you a job at the bakery."


I got my red coat and black boots on then went outside. It was a cold winter morning with the snow floating down from the sky. I walked down the streets of London looking up at the signs. I took a short cut that I knew. I kept on walking, until I saw some goblins and fairies fighting some black mist. They vanished instantly when they saw me staring at them. When they vanished I saw a goblin drop his satchel. I picked it up and looked inside. There were just paper so I guess it was important. I put it in my pocket and made my way to the bakery.
