Serisk

2010

On the opposite side of Tetolsa from the Door, a dark place called the Snowlands existed, created almost thirteen years past from the power of one whom all feared. Here, there was no such thing as faith, as love, as joy. Evil pierced the land through to the core, polluting the sky with the storms and darkness. A silver castle made of unmeltable ice stood in the very center, and from here, now, laughter rang out. Just as the land was unnatural and evil, the laughter did not stem from any normal cause. This was a malicious laugh, a sound so tearing it could come only from the frostiest heart.

In fact, the one who was laughing was also the one who had created the Snowlands from what once was a beautiful place, and this person sat, now, within the throne room of the castle. This room was bleak and shimmering, like every other in the castle. It had a huge mirror and a throne carved from navy blue ice. The room was full of so many ice statues, you could hardly walk through it. The statues weren’t for decoration. They were real animals and people that had been frozen out of anger, frozen through the immense power of the woman on top of the throne.

This woman’s name was Serisk, but few called her that. The people living across the land of Tetolsa knew her only as the Ice Enchantress. She had silvery blonde hair that ran down her back, to her narrow waist, cold gray eyes, and a pale, narrow face. Even her lips flushed at a shade that was pink only in theory. Serisk was like the ice that she had the power to control, but, although she had great power, she hadn’t yet succeeded in becoming Queen. She could have taken over, and the entire country knew it. She already ruled the land by fear. It would only take one attack by her forces for her leadership to become official. However, she knew too well the threat posed by the one that had left, twelve years earlier. Until that girl was removed entirely, Serisk would not make her bid. She was much too wise to take that risk.

That was how her plan had been created.

“You have done well, servant,” Serisk said, her voice echoing around the empty corners of the room. She was addressing the short, plump man who was kneeling before her throne. The man, Farr, was quivering, not only from the cold, but from fear.

“Thank you, m’ lady,” Farr murmured. He kept his head inclined so that Serisk could see only the brown hair atop his head. He didn’t dare meet her eyes.

“You swear it? The child is returning to Tetolsa?” Serisk questioned, tapping her fingernails against the throne.

“I swear it, m’ lady,” Farr whispered. “The spies heard the entire conversation. In a few days time, she will receive the message. She will travel through the trapdoor, and she will return here, to Tetolsa, where her family will await her.”

“It is better than I hoped. She’s just in time to meet my new army.” Serisk paused, smiling as she contemplated. “The plan is complete. Soon, soon I shall have her - the most powerful sorceress in the world!” Serisk stood in an excited frenzy and paced across the room, her hair swinging across her back. “Servant!”

Farr cringed as she turned to look at him again. “Y-yes, m’ lady?”

“Round up the ingali. We will need their services soon.”

As the little man hurried out of the room, looking relieved, Serisk walked to her balcony and looked out at the stormy sky. Lightning whipped down, melting the snow that whirled around it, and thunder cracked across the dead land. As Serisk’s hair and skirt whipped in the wind, malevolent laughter again came forth from her pale lips.

Soon, the girl would be dead, and soon, so soon, Serisk would become Queen.

The Ice Enchantress’s plot was in action at last.


 
Heaven's gates won't open up for me
With these broken wings I'm falling
All I see is
you
Come, please, I'm calling
Say it if it's worth savin' me...

This, I think, is the best writing I have read since Deathly Hallows. Post more!!!! Two is a good number, but fifty works too. I can't believe you wrote this in sixth grade. This is ten times better than anything I've ever written in my LIFE. Did you edit it or something? Because most sixth graders don't have half the vocabulary in these excerpts.

POST MORE OR DIE!!!!!! Or at least get hit by a variety of rotten foods that include no chocolate.
