The Hidden Life of Rowena Foribe * NANOWRIMO 2017*

The life of a witch who had lived most of her life without knowing who or what she truly is. Upon walking into a classroom and getting a project she dives deep into her family history. Finding things that she didn't know and overhearing things that she shouldn't know about. Seeing things that she shouldn't. She is about to turn 15 years old and that is when the first sighs of a witch come out. She can choose to go with them and see where the journey will take her or she can be like her family and turn her back on the Goddess and magic and powers. Rowena is just a normal 14-year-old high school student. Slacking in a few classes but good on most of her classes. Rowena has a few friends but her best friend that she tells everything, Eva Flixnet, who is in most of her classes.

(I know NaNoWriMo is done but I will still be working somewhat on this book. It is also for my school. They want me to write a novella soI wrote for NaNoWriMo.I also made a new cover but it is being picky with me)

10. All Fun and Games Until Someone Gets Hurt

Chapter 9 -  All fun and Games Until Someone Gets Hurt 

 

Eva's eyes rolled back into her head and she fell to the ground with a thud. "I should have told you that doing this sort of thing with a human is not good for the person. They have little ability to handle such things as magic and they tend to faint after a circle with a witch," My dad told me as I stood shocked about Eva passing out. A hand on my shoulder got me out of the daze and I tripped over a patch of grass before I reached Eva to try to get her to wake up. My dad knew what to do and picked her up. I followed them inside my hand still felt Eva's in my own. 

"What's going on Dad? Why did Eva pass out?" I asked and felt my voice grow faint. I opened the door and we rushed through. My dad put Eva on the couch as I knelt down on the ground trying to make sure, that she was okay. I held Eva's hand as tightly as I could without hurting her. I tried to send her healing energy but it didn't seem to work. My dad came back into the room with a bowl of water and some rocks. "What's with the rocks? Are they going to help Eva?" I asked as I watched my dad put the rocks on and around Eva. He looked at me like he was telling me to be quiet. I did just that and watched my dad put together a small set up on and around my friend. Once he looked over at me again I asked, "Are you going to tell me about this now?"  

He ran a hand through his hair and nodded. "Once she wakes up I will. For now, put your hand over her heart and on her forehead," He instructed me. I did so and felt some kind of shock. "I am going to put my hand over yours to help direct it. Push healing energy into her body through your hands," He smiled and looked in my eyes. I smiled back before I closed my eyes and did just as he said. It was a shock to feel him move the energy to her heart and brain first before the energy moved through Eva's limbs. I wanted to open my eyes and watch but knew that I would get caught up in the looks as my dad moved energy around Eva. Moments later my dad's hands left mine and I moved mine away with his. Opening my eyes, I watched as Eva started to suck in great gasps of air.  

Wishing the rocks off of her they moved to my side as my dad watched me. He seemed almost impressed that I could do that. I waited until Eva opened her watery eyes before I hugged her as tightly as I could. "Can't – Breath," She whispered in my ear and I let her go almost crying tears of laughter.  

"You're alright! That is what matters!" I shrieked laughing. My dad had walked back into the room and held a cup of water in front of Eva. 

"Just some water Eva. I promise," He said and smiled as she looked at the cup but didn't take it. She did take the cup but was not happy about it.  

"So, you’re a witch too? Such I call you a wizard then?" She asked and took a sip of the water. The look that my dad gave her said no. Guess he didn't like being titled a wizard.  "Well, thanks for doing whatever you did. I should get home now. That was enough for me in a day," She said and drank the rest of the glass. Eva gave the glass to me which I put on the floor next to the coach. I got to me feet and helped Eva up. Shaking on her legs at first, I held her still until the shaking stopped.  

I watched as Eva gathered all of her things together and headed for the door. "Would you like a ride home Eva?" I heard my dad ask from behind me. 

"No, I think I am okay Mr. Foribe," She said. I heard my dad hold a laugh in, but fail to do so. She opened the door and then turned right around again. "Would you mind if I stayed for a little while? I have some homework that I am not going to get done at home," She asked. I nodded already knowing the answer from my dad. She walked up to my room with me and set her stuff on the ground.  

"What class do you want to start with?" I asked Eva. She took out the physics homework first and pointed to the empty page. "Physics it is. Just as long as you can help me on my creative writing homework," Eva nodded as I pulled out my physics homework. She was lucky I was good at it. I just never liked the class. The class was just about the basics, but the quizzes were always about the real study of it. Eva was just taking the start of it where I am on the last year of it. It always being easy I just took it more and more.  

"Is this a quiz that you were supposed to take in class?" I asked Eva when I saw the word quiz on top.  

"No, this one is an at home one," She told me looking away from me. 

"Ah hum. Well any case. These are the fundamentals. From start to finish. What is physics?" I asked her and she said nothing. "The study of nature. How things work instead of why things work," I told her and moved on to the next question. "What can physics do?" She still said nothing. "Eva come on. I am here to help not do for you," I took a breath and started to laugh. "When did I start becoming a teacher?" I laughed at myself. Eva started to laugh too before pushing the homework away and yanking out my creative writing homework. Writing was the one thing I seemed unable to do.   

"Finally," I said almost exgustased from so much piled up homework during school. Although it was a bad choice to not do it when we got the homework we did get it done at some point. It hurts a lot to have a missing paper on your grade. Eva sat back and smiled as we finished writing our names on all of the homework that we had built up. The frown that I saw appear on her face told me that she had to leave.  

I walked her to the front door and waved goodbye as she bundled into her coat and outside. She had a small symbol the right side of her neck. It looked she had three comas on her neck with lines around them making a circle. It was odd, I never knew Eva to be the tattoo person. I guess she wanted something for writing. Brushing it off I close the door and with sweaking tires and a horn going off I yanked it back open. Eva was still on the side walk but laying down. I ran over to her and watched the persons car drive off. A hit and run. Eva's arm was bent in a weird way and she wasn't awake. My dad rushed out of the house to see what I was looking at. Chapter 9 -  All fun and Games Until Someone Gets Hurt
