The Legacy

Edmund is known as any other orphan in the country known as Macnes, the leading country in their world. I note that some things might be very confusing, but bear with me.


1. I Get Adopted

"Hurry up Edmund! We don't got all day!" yelled the orphanage owner from down the stairs as my adoptive parents waited for me down stairs.

"I am coming!" I yell as I quickly run down the stairs and stop right before the front door where a family of three stood.

The woman that stood by the guy who must've been the husband, wore a cream colored trench coat that went down to her knee's and a dark blue dress underneath with leggings. Her hair was light brown and was up in a fancy bun.

The man that stood beside her wore a black trench coat that went to his ankles and had a suit on for some reason. His black hair was combed back nicely on top of his head, and he looked impatiently at his watch.

Then there was the daughter.

She was wearing a bright red dress with a coat hanging off her shoulders with her hands holding a lollipop that she was sucking on. She had strawberry blonde curly, bouncy hair that rested up on her shoulders.

"Are you sure you want the boy?" asks the caretaker as she looks at me in disgust.

"I am pretty sure, Miss.Monomal. Hello, Edmund. I am Charlotte Hamilton, and this is my husband Brad Hamilton, and my only daughter, Ruby Hamilton," She finishes off with Ruby and see's Ruby's face all sticky.

"Hello, I am Edmund. It is very nice to meet you." I look outside towards the bustling streets with brooms flying in the air, trying to pick up their passengers.

I forgot to mention, we live in a world full of magic. The town we are in now is the capital of Macnes, Amethyst. I have lived here for about 13 years and 11 months. If you haven't caught on yet, my name is Edmund, and I am an orphan. Well, that all changes today. I am getting adopted by the Hamilton's, a very rich family in Macnes that lives in the countrysides and have adopted and raised kids, who grew up to be heroes.

"Okay then, we should be on our way. Follow us Edmund," says Brad as we exit the orphanage and dodge flying brooms and me slightly wincing to the sound of people arguing over stupid things.

I follow them to a magical phone booth and Brad quickly put in one quarter and said," Hamilton Mansion, 040511."


we appeared on a path that went down towards a huge mansion at the end with a gigantic gate. Brad places his hand on the gate, pushing ever so lightly on the gate.

I watch as Ruby runs through the gate and to two boys playing around at a little playground area, when I stick with Charlotte and Brad.

"Edmund, follow me and I will show you around the mansion. I just hope you have a photographic memory, or else you might have some trouble trying to find your way around here. Those two boys over there with black hair are twins that we also adopted. Their names are Lucien and Lucas. They are also around your age, so you should get along," Charlotte says as Brad walks into the mansion and the doors open up for him to walk through as he hands his trench coat to someone in the corner.

Charlotte leads me into the house and tells the maids to wash all my clothes in my suitcase and told the Butlers to tell the kids that dinner would be ready in two hours, since I think it was already four.

She showed me to my room where it had blue blankets and a desk in the corner of the room with school supplies in the bag.

I stare at the supplies until Charlotte says," You are going to start attending school by tomorrow at the most prestigious middle school in our country, Magnus Prep. Supper will be ready in about thirty minutes since it took us so long to tour the mansion. Get changed out of those clothes by then and into something nice. I'll send a maid that will knock on the door twice to notify you to open the door and follow her. See you in thirty minutes," she says as she points towards the clothes laid out on my bed and demonstrated the knocking sound that I would hear, then closed the door, leaving me in my thoughts.
