Rose Woods and the Dragon Quest

Rose is a normal pre-teen learning to be a Guardian Angel, also known as Celestrians. Then one night there is a zap of purple light in the Observatory! Before she knows it, Rose is losing her wings. Join Rose on her epic adventure to get back to the Observatory and become the Guardian of Angel Falls once more! Inspired by Dragon Quest IX. Note: Nintendo owns that game. I do not.

4. The Fittest Survives

I get up early in the morning and splash water on my face to wake me. I put on my Celestrian garments, green legging and boots with a cute feathery dress. I brush my straight, dark brown hair out of my face and tip toe out the door. I want an early start at training, if I am to succeed.

I decide to go to the top of the Observatory (our Celestial home) and pray to the mighty Yggdrasil, the world tree. When I get there, after ages of climbing stairs, I kneel down and pray that I may win and become the next guardian of Angel Falls in Aquila's place when I am ready.

I keep praying until the wind whips up my hair. I get up and climb down the stairs. I don't know why but when I pray to Yggdrasil it gives me hope. 

 

In the Training Room, I try battling practice Slimes, or trying my luck at Cruelcumber targets. Apus Major always told me that the early Celestrian becomes the guardian. After lunch, the Training Room becomes filled with the five of us getting ready for the competition - which all we know about it is that if we get killed it's not anyone's fault. Thanks Aquila. I can't even picture myself saying 'Master Aquila' all day and night.

 

Storm is trying his luck on the dumbbells - BIG MISTAKE!!!!! He drops it on his toe which makes his wings flutter and everyone laugh at him. So much for them wearing halos!!!

Diana isn't even trying! She's practicing her angry faces in her hand mirror. Not much of a threat.

Cat is fighting archers, created by Celestrian magic, and trying to beat them in her fastest time.

Rue, I'm pleased to see, is trying to lull some fire spirits to sleep by singing a beautiful melody... And then taking them out with a thrash of her knife. So much for that death song.

 

I continue defeating the so called icky stick Slimes. I'm getting annoyed now. I have to do this! I have to become Guardian! I have to show what I can do!

SLICE! I defeat the last of the hologram battle slimes. I decide to talk to Storm.

He sees me coming, "Hey Rose."

"Hey." I reply," How's your toe?"

"Squashed." He gives a weird constipated face and I laugh.

"Well, better train! See ya Rosie!" He calls.

"Bye Storm."

 

I continue my training by lulling fire spirits to sleep with Rue. I look at her amber eyes. She looks terrified of what the future holds...
