Travis waved a final farewell to his mother and father, then, with a pit
in his stomach and an uneasy smile on his face, he climbed into the
carriage. The door was shut beside him and he found himself trapped in the
carriage as it began moving down the road. He wasn’t actually trapped, he
could still leave, but to what end? The carriage would deliver him to his
future at Lightspear Academy. A future he knew he was privileged to have,
and yet it was a future that terrified him. He would be hundreds of miles
away from his parents and his town. Away from everything familiar, and
when the time finally came for him to graduate, three to five years would
have passed. He would be a different person by then. He didn’t want to
become a different person, if only he could stay a boy forever.
“Cheer up, Travis,” said Chester, “You’re going to love Lightspear, trust
me on that, and besides, you’ll be able to visit your family every year for
the Holly Day.”
Chester sat across from Travis. They were the only two occupants of
the small carriage. Chester was a fair skinned boy who appeared to be in his
early twenties, perhaps younger, he wore blue and white robes with a
matching scarf. The mark of Lightspear Academy was prominent on the
right side of his chest—a silver spear wreathed in golden fire, it was a
symbol of prestige, and of power.
“Do you say that to everyone you recruit?” asked Travis bluntly.
The look of mild offense that spread across Chester’s face made Travis
backtrack, “Sorry, it’s just, how do you know I’m going to love
“It’s quite alright. I’ll tell you a secret, you’re actually the first student
I’ve been assigned to recruit.”
“Is that a secret or just something you withheld from me?” asked
“Both?” suggested Chester.
Travis licked his lips nervously. They’d grown dry and chapped. Had
stress done that? Or just the cool air?
“Do you love Lightspear?” asked Travis, “And tell me the truth. I’m
already enrolled. it’s not as if I can back out now.”
Chester gave the new studenta warm, genuine smile, “Yes, I do. You’ll
understand soon enough. The first month is always the hardest, but once
you get a hang of things, well, you’ll know what I mean then. Lightspear
isn’t just a school, it’s a home, a fantastical and magnificent home.”
Travis nodded. He wanted to believe Chester. The only thing stopping
him was his uncertainty about his readiness. Yet, he reminded himself that
some students began at Lightspear when they were as young as sixteen.
was eighteen. If they could thrive then certainly he could, right?
“How many students are enrolling this year?” asked Travis.
Chester looked thoughtful. “I have no way of knowing for certain about
this year, but one hundred and ten students enrolled last year, and I’d bet
that number has increased this year.”
