I Am The Seeker
Thaira Walls, age fifteen, always believed in fairies. And despite her best friends complaints, she still does.
But when Thaira stumbles across a whole new world of dreams, she finds that what she wished for isn't so pleasant.
Because along with her, Thaira has dragged an ancient force, and it is everything but what she wished for.
Deep in the fantasy world, four magical creatures live their lives in normality--that is, until a strange girl crashes in and turns everything on its head.

Chapter 2: Niya Waves
When I finish I dress into my usual clothes, a tank top and shorts. They were the clothes that were easiest to shape shift in. I tuck Cheese, my pet mouse into my pocket and walk out the door.
Another boring day at school I think to myself grabbing an apple down from a tree and breaking off a small piece.
"Eat up Cheese." I whisper to him slipping the piece into my pocket. Animals weren't allowed in school but I couldn't leave Cheese at home by himself.
I walk into homeroom and find my seat in the back corner. Nobody could see me, just a smudge of a figure. I smile to myself. This way I can shape-shift freely.
"Did you hear that a human entered the realm?!" Gossip queen, Misty squeals.
Huh..maybe I could meet himher./ I think. I hope heshe wouldn't be mean to cheese though.../
" Attention class lets begin.." Our teacher for the day, Mr.Jacobs, says as I immediately tune out focusing out shape-shifting my hand into a scaled claw...
I fall out of my chair as the lunch bell rings. A few snickers follow. This happens every other day.
Shape-shifting is exhausting, I think as my stomach rumbles. I head off with the crowd to the cafeteria, getting my lunch and heading over to a tree.
" C'mon Cheese." I murmur as he climbs out of my pocket and onto the next branch. I quickly follow and share my lunch.
"Do you have any lemons for me?" Cheese squeaks looking at me hopefully as I pull out a slice of lemon.
" And for that I must practice my shape-shifting on you." I reply hearing his high-noted groan. I concentrate on transforming him into a sparrow.
"AH! Change me back, change me back!" He squawks as I mentally congratulate myself.
" AS you wish." I say in my most genie voice changing him back into a mouse.
"Woop. Big deal. The little goth girl can change a pathetic mouse into a even more pathetic sparrow." Misty says walking under the tree.
She thinks she's so good, with her ability to control the weather.
"Don't.Start." I say through gritted teeth that were slowly become sharper.
"Oo. I'm soo scared. What cha gonna do? Turn me into a mouse?" My vision becomes sharper as I become smaller turning into a poisonous snake.
"Niya. Don't you already have 2 demerits and 5 marks on your permanent record." Cheese squeaked calming me.
" You have five ssssecondsss to leave before I attack." I hiss my eyes returning to normal as Misty scampers off.
Eventually I turn back right before the class bell goes off. I tuck Cheese into my pocket and skip back into the classroom.
Only 3 more hours of this living dump.
