This is a complet rewrite of Amy Nightheart; Princess of the Darkness, there is very little in common with the first writng of this story.
Rowen, and I sat down in the clearing listening to
the wind howl a sweet song. We had our legs crossed, and were
barefooted, that way it was easier to feel the ground beneath our
feet, and how the earth moves.
We were silent as we tried pulling the magic from
deep within our bodies, it was still hard to do, not being in a
true magical world. This realm has many wonders, but the human
have seemed to forgotten that The Goddess made this world, and
the next for us to flourish in, not to destroy, and ignore mother
earth's cry for help.
Finally getting frustrated I grabbed Rowen's hands to
help me focus my energy, and my powers flow, I may be powerful,
but I was still a novice. Rowen had grown up in this world, but
kept the ways of her true world Rula. Her parents for some reason
left her in this world, possible for protection, maybe because
they didn't want a daughter to carry on their witch's name. Her
full name was Rowen Angel Star, she always thought it may be an
original name, but quite weird.
I personally would love to have a name like Angel
Star, but that's her opinion.
"Amy your not paying attention."
"Oh. Ha sorry Ro." I went back to concentrating,
after a few more minutes a circle appeared around us, and the
ground lifted up. We floated on the round piece of earth in the
air for a few minutes getting a hang on earth manipulation. I was
wearing out quickly so I spoke up,
"Ro, I'm about to collapse, can we stop?" Ro nodded,
and we lowered the amount of power we were using until the ground
lowered itself back into the hole. Rowen open her bright hazel
eyes, and smiled at me, her black hair was down, and she wore a
big tie dye shirt with no sleeves, a white belt around her
middle, and form fitting black tights.
I had red curly hair, blue eyes with speaks of
silver. I was wearing a short off shoulder dress, it was white
and billowy, underneath I wore ripped blue jeans, I thought I was
pretty, but Ro always said I was beautiful. I knew she loved me,
and not as a sister, I loved her too, we had been together for
awhile, but it didn't work out, we were better friends. I always
think about getting back together with her, but it would just
bring more heartbreak.
"Hey, Amy. Where the hell are you?"
"Nowhere really, just thinking, but I thought we did
pretty well with the magic control."
"Yeah, pretty decent. Are you ever gonna go back to
Rula?" I bit my lip, and sighed.
"Yes, I am. Not now, but soon." Rowen looked up at
me, and helped me stand up.
"Can I come with you?"
"Well of course you can! I would never leave without
my best friend." Rowen smiled more, and pulled me into a hug. I
laughed, and hugged her back, my heart ached at the thought that
she wanted us to be together, but it just couldn't work that way.
I loved her with all my heart, but I have a duty to marry the
prince, and be the queen. I didn't want Ro hurt because someday,
even through I ran away it would happen, it is my destiny. Marla
my cat rubbed up against us, but I ignored her I just wanted to
My mind drifted back to the day I met Rowen.
Tears streamed down my face, I didn't want to be
married, I didn't want my big older brother to be dead, but he
was. I got him killed, my brother Wes was dead because of me, and
my stupid actions. I was going to get married if I stayed
So I grabbed a bag out of my closet, throwing that on
the bed, and rummaged though my clothes. I grabbed jeans, long
sleeve shirts, a few sweaters, some hoddie's, and my winter
jacket. Shoving all my bras, underwear, and socks into the bag as
well, I zipped up the duffle.
I heard my Mom coming to my room so I closed all my
drawers, and pushed my duffel bag under my bed, plopping down on
it with my headphones in my ears, and iPod attached to them, I
relaxed. Mom knocked on my door, and entered. My room was purple,
with white curtains, black bedsheets, and a moon, and stars
She looked around for a moment, then at me, we looked
so much alike it was scary, Mom was tall, red curly hair, green
eyes, but we had the same body type, small in placed, but our
hips, and breasts.
"Hi, honey. How are you doing, do you need
"No," I sighed, shrugging my shoulders, "I'll
"Okay, how about what happened with
"I'm not good."
"I thought so, do you wanna talk about
"Alright we don't have to. I need to tell you
"Your the oldest now, and is expected to marry. We
found a very nice boy, his names---." I cut my Mom
"I'm not marrying anyone. I don't want to, I don't
know him, and I certainly don't love him."
"You could learn to love him..."
"Yeah, did you learn to love Dad?" Mom
"I loved your father in my own way, I tried making
things work, but he cheated on me our whole marriage. Then he
died, nothing I could do. Audi doesn't even know who her real Dad
is, but you remember him?"
"Kinda. Mom, I had a long day, can I get some
"Of course you can, but one more thing. I know this
is bad timing, but I couldn't really control it. Your gonna get a
little sister or brother."
"Oh. Coolie, night Mom."
"Night, love." Mom walked out of my room, lightly
shutting the door. I jumped up, and grabbed my bag. I felt bad
for leaving, but I couldn't stay here, something was calling to
me, telling me to leave, so I did. Throwing on a black coat, I
pulled on some sneakers, and shoved in a pair of sandals in my
bag. After that, I opened my window, and looked down. The castle
was five stories, and I was on the fifth floor, knowing how to
control the air, I slipped the bag on my shoulder, and jumped off
the castle out the window.
Air I call at you hold me, and descend me down
safely. The wind howled, and caught me, bouncing on the air
burst, I fell on my ass. Murmuring an ouch, I felt the air
lowering me down slowly, until I dropped on my feet on the
ground. I patted my pockets, making sure I had my iPod charger,
and I hit my forehead. I forgot my laptop, it was in its case, on
my desk. I called for my laptop, and it appeared in my hands in
its case with a strap on it.
I slung it over my other shoulder, plugged my
headphones in, and turned my ipod on. Singing under my breath the
lyrics to an old song, I shoved my hands forward, feeling the
seam of the next word, together like a fabric. Slowly, I ripped
it open, and a hole before me, with white light pouring out. I
stepped into the portal, and went through it to the other
I was surprised when I flew forward, and crashed
right into a person, flying, I toppled over onto the person
knocking her down. We landed on the ground hard.
"Oh my goddess, I'm so sorry, I wasn't watching where
I was appearing to." A girl about my age looked up at me, and I
heard the portal close. She had dyed brown hair, hazel eyes, and
a very confused look on her face.
"Where did you come from?"
"Um, from that portal. Duh. What realm am I in
"Realm? You mean like world? Well as far as I know
this is the human realm. Where are you from.
"I'm from the Realm of Rula, or the magical
"Are you a witch?"
"Yes. I'm Amy, princess of Rula, and heir to the
"Wow, you don't met another witch let alone her being
a princess everyday, I'm Rowen." I smiled down at the beautiful
girl, and looked down. Oops! I thought, I was still laying on top
of Rowen, I giggled nervously, and sat
"Sorry about smashing into you."
"It's fine I didn't mind at all." Somehow I thought
she meant that in another way, but I wasn't sure.
"Do you want to show me around this
"Sure! I'll show you a magical place, or as magical
as it gets in the human world." She stood up, and helped me up as
well. A hot sizzle went through my body at the touch of her hand,
and I had a feeling that Rowen, and I would become very
"AMY! You went into your own world again." I was
shaken back into the real world.
"Sorry Ro, I was thinking back to the first day we
met." Ro smiled, and her eyes twinkled.
"Did you get to the part when we first
"No, not yet, but I'm sure I will sometime today." I
smiled back at her. "Wanna see if we still have that spark?"
Knowing I was in bad territory didn't mean I didn't want Ro's
lips on mine. I knew she was gonna agree, she nodded, and pulled
"I still love you." I looked away from her, and
"I know." I brought her lips back towards mine,
breathing hard, I teased her lips with my tongue gently before I
crushed them to mine. We both moaned at the same time, heat
shooting up our spines, my skin tingled, and I had an urge to
bring Ro closer.
I slipped an arm around her waist, and pulled her closer, our bodies touched, breasts to breasts, belly to belly, we kissed harder, and longer not wanting to end the kiss, but knowing I must. I pulled away from Ro, and into her eyes, eyes --that I knew if I kept this up-- would contract in pain, and sorrow. Eyes that I loved, part of the woman I loved, but could not have.
