Keep in mind, I'm in no way the best at grammar, spelling, proof reading, ect. So don't get all butt hurt if I misspell a word. On that note, lets begin.
-Came to the world through a spell gone wrong

-Lost her memory
-Main character of the story.
-Terravenia's best friend
-Usually the voice of reason for Terra
-Most focused on finding her friend and bringing her back.
"Terra I'm telling you a spell like that isn't going to work, You just made it up!"
"I know It's going to work, I feel it in my blood. Mari just listen to me when I say stop worrying."
The two women were busy arguing throughout the halls of the Institute of Magic. All who were currently in the halls or nearby class rooms could hear their discussion as they progressed toward the commons. The institute was made for all those who had some magical know how or were just looking to know some history on magic. Terra was one quite gifted in the magical art and was at times called a prodigy. The day was beginning to end and the as the sun dipped under the horizon the two women parted ways.
Terra herself entered her own room and sat down on the reasonably sized bed. Sighing she held her head in her hands and could only do one thing; Smile.
She was going to make history with what she was going to pull. A spell crafted entirely by herself. Something of that nature hadn't been accomplished in over 1500 years. Sure many tried, but they all failed. Terra however was certain that this spell she had crafted by hand over many nights would prevail when all other had failed. Her eyes lit with a spark of determination, it was time to get everything set.
Setting about clearing the floor of her room of any debris she quickly marked out a circle. One that was commonly used for summoning rituals of high magic proficiency. However she had modified the circle by adding one smaller one on the inside. Around that she inscribed a series of runes. Once she was satisfied with her work she stood and turned to retrieve her notes.
The spell she was planning to use was a simple one. Teleportation. Well only simple in the fact of the idea. Teleportation by magic had been a touchy thing in arcane history. Many users who used it could end up losing an arm by pronouncing certain phrases wrong. Terra once knew of a man who had lost his leg under the knee. They decided to add a wooden replacement to help him with day to day activities. Last she heard of him he had gotten a new business sailing...
With enough Procrastination she stepped into the center circle with her notes and began to speak. Her voice projected in the small room. No doubt if you were passing by the room you would hear the mix matched words of Arcane Magic flowing from her mouth."Iâ HwestaMah Stli No Akrahm" In those few words, Embers of fire would begin to dance around the edges of both circles. Before long the once fledgling piece of tinder had burst into a cacophony of Flame.
The blaze soon engulfed the room and had left Terra in a state of shock. Her spell. Had it not worked? It was impossible, It should have in all manners of the way have worked. As she mused these over in her mind the rolling blaze of orange was sucked back towards Terra in one fast intake of air. The inner circle, with it's runes, Glowed a brilliant orange before all the energy stored was released upon Terra.
If one was outside of the Institute at that moment they would have seen a brilliant thing. A small flicker of white light coming from the windows on the east side of the building and then in a deafening roar, A column of fire rocketed up through the roof and into the night sky, bathing the ground in the orange glow of morning. The clouds above the building evaporated into nothing as the tornado of flame sped into the atmosphere. However just as quickly as it had gotten there, the column dissipated. Small embers falling from it.
-Poke- ..... -poke poke-
Terra awoke in what could be described as unpleasant. She was laying face first on the ground. The ground itself was lightly charred around her body, however beyond that nothing seemed to have been touched. She sat up, he body screaming in protest and managed to take a look around. She was up high. Presumably on a mountain. She could see for miles in almost all directions. She should have been freaking out about that fact, but she honestly couldn't really remember how she had gotten there in the first place. The poking she had been experiencing had been nothing but a common crow, seeing if the body on the ground was good to eat. It had taken off once she had moved and was now sitting in the tree located about thirty feet away from her. She kept a hand on her pounding head. The only thing she could truly remember was her name; Terravenia.
Inside the Institute things were ablaze as Mages battled a burning building. It was being well controlled though. In a half an hour the matter was settled and the wizards set about finding the cause for the fire. In their search (Which was surprisingly fast) they found Terra's room. The room itself was a lost cause, the ceiling and the rooms above totally gone, letting sunlight fall in from above. However a strange site was located in the middle of the room. Where the two circles had been was now a charred and blacked stone floor. The stone itself had been cracked and in a few places the underlying dirt had shown it's face. However in the spot were the inner circle had been located was now a incredible site.
In the midst of all the burnt and destroyed remains, A mound of dirt had survived. Atop this mound lay two things. The first the beginning shoots of a tree, one who's bark was white and it's leaves yellow as the sapling could attest. The second a leather bound book. Inside lay one thing;
"I Terravenia, Mage of fire and of High standing, Presents the blueprints to a new transportation spell of my own making.(In this journal of mine) This spell requires the following requirements before being ready for use..."
That book would only be the start of a remarkable list of problems that would later come to pass.
Imagine yourself waking up outside, the sun beating down on you and when you wonder why or how you go there one single thought enters your mind: You don't know. Terra awoke and that was her first thought. The sun was shining high and birds were chirping. It was a curious thing, not knowing where you came from. Terra could do only one thing at this moment. Get her bearings. Take a look around and find out where she was. She had some knowledge of where people would live. Down in valley's by water sources that kind of thing. However what she saw when she stood truly astounded her.
She was on a hill. No even larger than that, she was on a mountain. She could see around in every direction for miles. If it had been any other time she would have been amazed by the view, it was beautiful. The mountain she stood on was in the center of a grouping of small hills and plains, flowers dotting the wild grass in the lands below. Every so often a cropping of trees could be seen, as though someone had taken a handful of seeds and tossed them to the side as they walked, not even caring where they landed.
Though that was just the thing. She could see no towns, or cities. Nothing. It was all just plains and hills with tree's dotting various places. In the far distance she could make out the faint shimmer of another mountain. A mountain range. Perhaps she was just in the wrong part of the world. If she could just get to those others mountains she might find some people. However she knew that was slim. I mean her she was, on top of a mountain in the middle of nowhere with no clue as to how she managed to get there and she was going to casually walk over to those other mountains. Yeah simple just a nice little stroll for a few..hundred miles. Yeah It wasn't a very good idea.
Terra threw her hands up in frustration on sat down, her face in her hands. Why? Why was she here, who was she really? She had no idea where she had come from, who her parents were. It was eating her up inside. How could she possibly find help if she couldn't explain what happened. She was just so frustrated. She finally just relaxed and just let her body go limp. It was no use arguing to herself. She would first have to get off this mountain, then she could probably get some food from some berry's or she could fish if she could make a wooden spear from something like the tree behind her or or or...
Terra instantly swiveled her head to see who had said that. To her surprise it was... no one. Was she beginning to hear things now? Perhaps she was going crazy on top of all these things. That would be just wonderful, to just slowly go insane with voices in her head. She couldn't help but laugh out loud. What had her day been like before this? Had been going alright? She doubted that, it had probably been going really crappy and then this happened. Just one bad thing after the other.
"Did she hear me?!"
She held her head down. Stop. She wanted it to stop. Why wouldn't it stop? She could hear the shuffle of footsteps now, some hushed breathing. Was it already getting worse? Maybe she should just jump off the mountain and end it all. Perhaps. Might be the easier way out. Who could know what awaited her in this place. She stood and was just about to walk towards the edge when she felt or heard the flicker of movement behind her. In one quick movement she ducked and let her foot slide out on the ground. As she rotated she saw the surprised face of a man in an old fishing hat and denim overalls just as her foot connected with his shins sending him up falling backwards. She cried out, the man didn't look dangerous at all. She then moved her hands in a complex movement that righted the man in an instant. As she straightened she could only look at her hands in shock. What did she just do? How? What was going on? It...It just didn't make sense.
On that note Terra felt her vision go dark and her body fall towards the ground as she fainted. However she didn't hit the ground. She felt the warm hands of the man holding her. She could barely make out what the man said next.
"Who are you?"
She'd been asking that question to herself all day.
