Short Story 1

Darkness is a strange substance, like ice it has three states solid, liquid, and gas, but with a twist. Since it is a sort of mystical material, it doesn’t fall under the laws of science, only able to change states by the user.

In solid form it’s almost completely black aside from a very tiny shade of red at its centre, like a candle in the dark, when a non-user touches it it’s like getting winded, if hit by a sharp point it will penetrate and quickly infect.

As a liquid its thick, sticky, and has a pungent smell of ink, it can act like quicksand or just plain coat and suffocate people.

As a gas it’s quite strange it is able to pass through solid material with ease, suffocate, and eat away like acid. As a whole Darkness is an odd thing.

Evangeline was a special girl who knew what the world was capable of. Her blonde locks glistened in the sun. Her lips were red like the blood of her enemies. Evangeline’s eyes were unusual; it was like fresh grass-green that swirled into an Atlantic blue.

Evangeline was not an ordinary girl. She craved the touch of power. It was an illusion she always desired. A mirage of her dreams.

Evangeline’s mother always told her to stay away from the darkness lurking around the world. The darkness is capable of evil things. Where people can’t be saved.

After that talk the mother had with Evangeline she gave her a locket. This locket was engraved with a Latin phrase “Evadere Fata” which translates to Escape our Fate. Evangeline didn’t know what it meant.

This had a special meaning to her mother, but Evangeline knew nothing, she just thought it was an heirloom. Evangeline was oblivious to the dark world.

Wendy Rams always believed in Light trumps Darkness. She was the epitome of beauty. Her olive skin complemented her rustic auburn hair.Wendy’s eyes did not match her appearance. Her eyes were grey, like a blade on a knife. Wendy’s eyes were soulless; she was hiding something. Something important, Wendy was the decadent of the Great Witch of Turkey, Witch Adelaide. She was a smart one, everyone in the village envied her and her power.  After thousands of years her powers lied in Wendy. Her father always kept her locked up, so the bad people don’t get her. She never saw the world for what it was for. Wendy’s dad told her poisonous things about the world and the people.

Charlie Max was just a normal girl. She lived at home, going to school and doing work. Charlie had jet black hair and her eyes were piercing blue. Her lips were pink like faint roses. She was good at keeping secrets, she knew everything about everyone. The darkness intrigued her.

These girls were all connected. Not by blood and not by friendship.  They were connected by power, magic. They all had something special about them.  Wendy had the light, Evangeline had the power, but she wanted more and Charlie had the darkness. The girls were all in their own world.

Darkness was in all the girls; they just didn’t know it. It was what they did with it that made it important.  They could either fight it or let the darkness control them. Evangeline and Wendy fought unknowingly, but with Charlie liked the darkness.These girls were the Trinity of Ivy. They all had a power. It was about time that they would meet.  But, they have to be careful, their powers can control their souls.

Only two powerful entities can control them. Twilight faded into blackness. The stars came out, they glistened in the sky, the moon illuminated the ever green treesEvangeline noticed that the sky become even darker than usual. Her locket glowed, she knew something important was going to happen. Later that night Evangeline went to the forest to explore the night sky. She had a feeling that her fate might be her destiny.

Wendy made a break for it, she left her dad. She was running for her dear life. She made it to a forest where trees were as tall as skyscrapers. She settled down and stared was practicing her magic. Her powers grew stronger. Wendy felt the fire in her soul. The powers indulged into her soul. She was finally one with them.

Charlie needed space from the world. Charlie hated the fact that she loved seeing people in pain. The darkness was controlling her. She needed to think. So she went to the forest behind her house, she just wanted to get lost.

Evangeline noticed lights in the distance, and a girl by herself. She weaved her way through the branches, and stood behind a big tree. She heard this mysterious girl say “Con oídos para oír y ojos para ver hacer la noche más fácil de ver”. (With ears to hear and eyes to see make the night easier to see)Evangeline noticed how at peace she was at. Somehow she wanted that.  Evangeline jumped out behind the tree and tackled the girl.

Charlie heard the rustling in the distance and she was intrigued. She made her way through the trees to only find a blonde girl being pinned down by a red-headed girl.

“What are you guys doing!” Charlie shouted. She was surprised to see to girls fighting.

“She was saying speaking in a different tongue!”  Evangeline yelled back.

Deep down Evangeline wanted that power.

“I was not; I was casting a spell to see why the night sky is so dark.” Wendy fired back.

“Where are my manners I’m Wendy and that is Evangeline” Wendy said politely.

“How do you know my name?” Evangeline asked.

“I’m a witch and I can also read minds.” Wendy said with grace

“Well then I’m Charlie” She said waving my hand. Deep down Charlie wanted to end her.

Wendy could see the darkness in her eyes, but she refused to say anything.

Out of nowhere thunder was clapping above them. The trees grew larger and wider creating a canopy above them, keeping the girls trapped in the forest.

The air became thick, it had a pungent smell of ink. The air was ready to suffocate people. The stars were hiding in plain sight and the moon was the only thing that was illuminating the black sky. The moon was smiling at the girls, like it was mocking them.

Then this man comes down from above. He had white piercing eyes, that could poison your soul. His lips were a pale pink like a dead rose. He knew girls. He planned this. He was one of a kind.

He was waiting for this moment all his life. As he was getting closer the girls were already drifting apart.

“Why, hello their girls!” This man said with a smirk

“W-w-who are you? “Said Charlie quivering. Deep down she knew who he was, but she was just too scared to admit it.

“I’m Lucifer. And I am here to see all of you burn in my Kingdom” he said laughing.

As Lucifer lifted his finger, Wendy started chanting a spell and it sounded familiar to Evangeline.

“Evadere Fata” Wendy chanted.

“Evadere Fata” Evangeline joined in with power. The power between the girls were like a magnet. They connected.

She felt fulfilled, this was her destiny. Evangeline was in a trance. She felt one with herself.

The world was in her hands. She had to fight the evil. She could have chosen to let go, but she didn’t. She fought, for her life and for herself.

Charlie was still confused on what was happening. The darkness was taking over her soul. She couldn’t get away from it. Her soul didn’t fight it. The darkness was becoming apart of her. He was the evilness in Charlie’s eyes.

She joined Lucifer.

She started casting a spell, she didn’t even know she could.

Once Lucifer noticed this drastic change in her, he joined in with Charlie. The girls couldn’t defeat the both of them but they kept on trying.

Charlie was gone her soul had been changed.

“Puellae vitas finem” (End the lives) Lucifer and Charlie shouted together.

There darkness was strong, it has been years since the world has witness this kind of evil magic. Lucifer hadn’t been so powerful, he liked this power, he loved the attention and he loved the girl. s

In that moment, the world stood still. The silence was deafening.

And just like that, the moment was still. Pain was all they felt. The girls knew that their life was over. That death was already to take them. Blackness filled their eyes. They were gone.

Lucifer got what he wanted and maybe even more. He also got the girl.
