It felt like the longest wait in the world, but finally today was the day! It was time to make a journey into the land of magic. A land that she had only dreamt of and honestly, she had no idea what to expect. Raya’s eyes looked over her dim room at the bags she had packed and nodded. One bag full of clothes and the other for her books and other various magical discoveries she had made, and of course, a couple quartz. Please with this, she nodded and pulled out the letter and read over it again. Once she got to the end, she blinked noticing the last P.S had changed.
Her eyes went wide for a moment before she couldn’t help but smile. “It is real”
That thought aside, she carried her bags out of her room and out the front door. Thankfully, her parents were out doing there using work related life deals, so this was a perfect time to leave. She had even managed to leave a little note stating she was going off to study and she would contact them when she could. Though it was rather vague, it would have to work; surely, it wouldn’t be THAT strange for her to leave for a day or two, but once a week hit they may worry. Raya shrugged seeming to not care at this moment in time. No, it was time to go and see her new life.
The walk to the designated area was quite long; she didn’t have any money for a bus so she had no choice but to walk her way towards the shop. A small clock shop, she remembered walking past it as a kid, but not once had she ever went inside. Peering into the shop, it seemed very normal. Grandfather clocks around every corner, ornate wall clocks, digital clocks, and watches on mannequin arms. Finally, her eyes fell along a rather skinny old man. He had been watching her carefully. Realizing she must seem odd, she finally pulled out the paper and handed it over to him. “I was told to give you this?” it was obvious she wasn’t too sure how this worked, but the moment the man nodded and began to walk away, she just knew she had to follow him.
Winding through the clock paths, they came to a room. Within a moment, he handed back the letter and motioned towards the door. She went to ask question but decided it would only make her seem out of place. Nodding slowly, she opened the door and stepped in. For a moment, it was pitch black, but quickly light shone through as she found herself standing in an empty train room. Not only that, the window in front of her showed she was moving. “Amazing!’ it was a soft gasp, but it was obvious she was definitely excited.
It took only a minute or two for her to put her bags in the storage above and to finally sit down and look out the window. “This is really happening”
