The Forbidden Love Of Canden Essay

1388 words - 6 pages

I woke up this morning and entered my teleporting chamber to go to the breakfast diner. However, I ended up teleporting to some land I was not familiar with. I knew I was somewhere in Canden ‘cause I’m not old enough to teleport outside of the country. I decided to look for a teleporting chamber so I could teleport back to my home. It then occurred to me that I was not in my home territory.
This could only mean one thing. I am in our rival territory, Throden. I can’t be anywhere else. There are only two territories I can be in: Reviden or Throden. This is very bad. I shouldn’t be here. I could get killed before I even realize someone has found me. I must kill anyone or anything I encounter.
I hear something, the sound of footsteps. Someone has found me. I could feel their eyes on me. I slowly circle around, trying to find where it’s hiding.
“What are you doing here?” someone suddenly asks behind me.
I turn quickly and throw a punch. He stops it. He’s strong. He could kill me in a heartbeat. There’s no way I could stand a chance against him. The only way I can stay alive is to befriend him. Maybe he can show me to a chamber so I can teleport back to Reviden.
“Oh,” he begins, “you don’t even know me and you automatically throw a punch at me? You sure make a great first impression.”
He lets go of my arm and I reply, “I’m sorry. I thought you would kill me.”
“Ha, I’m not that kind of person. I may look big and tough, but I don’t have the heart to take a person’s life. Although, under desperate measures, I might,” he says. “You never answered my question. What are you doing here? I can tell you’re not from here.”
“Well, you’re right. I’m not from here,” I reply.
“Okay, so where are you from?” he asks me. “Wait a second. I think I might have an idea. We should talk somewhere more private.”
He activates a teleband on his wrist. He must be at least seventeen years old. Here in Canden, we aren’t allowed to use a teleband until we turn seventeen. He grabs my arm and we teleport to an island.
“Where are we?” I ask, cautiously.
“Never mind that. Here, we can say anything without anyone else hearing,” he replies. “Before we get back to what we were talking about, can I have a name to work with?”
“Krystal Lantieri,” I reply.
“Nice to meet you, Krystal Lantieri. I’m Nikolai Drabek,” he says. “Back to where you’re from, you’re from Reviden aren’t you? I know because I noticed you don’t have a teleband, which means you’re under seventeen and can’t teleport outside of the country.”
“Hmm, you’re smart. Yes, I am from Reviden, and yes, I am sixteen.” I say.
“I’m seventeen, so I’m of age to use a teleband,” he says. “So, why did you teleport to Throden anyway?”
“I accidentally did. I meant to teleport to my city’s breakfast diner. I guess I pressed something by mistake. I’m looking for a teleporting chamber so I can teleport back home. Care to show me to one?” I ask him.
“Nah, I’ll take you home.”
He activates his teleband and we teleport to my...
