Fiona sat up gasping, today was the day she would be sacrifised. 50 years ago 13 leaders, 1 from each country, ruled the land of Lucious in peace. Then one day the ruler of the 13st kingdom, Malchanceux, built a giant wall around his country and killed every magical person. He forced every country, every year, to give 1 child up to him. Her parents had volunteered her. She pushed up the wooden window with all her might and jumped out of the small one story building. She looked at the building she had called home all her life then turned and ran. "Fiona," Georgi, it was Georgi. She was the one of the only things she cared about. Then she gasped, if she didn't get sacrifised, Georgi would. Fiona slowly walked back to her house and admired the land of Foudre for the last time.
It was the smallest land and there was always a thunder storm in the sky, except this thunder storm only has lighting and thunder, not rain. There was no metal, because there was so much energy it would shock you if you touched metal. Fiona collapsed on her front porch step and tried not to think about it being her last time alive. She heard a bang and looked up, frozen in place like everyone else in Lucious. The symbol of the evil ruler, a black dragon, was in the sky. "It's time," Fiona whispered, her heart in her throught. The town bells started ringing and the land of Foudre awoke in sound. Her mom grabbed her and Georgi and dragged them to the town center.
"It's a new year and we have to part with another of our bright kids, I'm so sorry Fiona." Fiona's teacher burst into tears and cried into her husband's shoulder, Georgi started wailing. Fiona slowly stood up, her legs felt like jello, and she walked up to the wall, her heart pounding in her ears. 12 symbols appeared in the sky, one for each land. Somebody, she couldn't pay attention, branded the symbol of Foudre, a lighting bolt, into her neck and a searing pain raced down her back. She let out a strangled cry and writhed on the floor. Someone guided her towards the wall and she fought against them. They pushed her and Fiona fell through the wall.
Fiona's breath was knocked out of her as she landed on her back on the concrete floor and the last thing she remembered seeing was the symbol of Foudre exploding in the sky.
