Underworld Academy Chapter 18
               
                “More than half of that isn’t our fault. We ran into…obstacles. Stacy was hexed, for starters. That ‘reliquary’ that Durwood gave her had a witch’s finger, raven feathers, and some blue sand that Flint and me don’t recognize.” Raze’s voice woke her, but she didn’t open her eyes. She wanted to hear the conversation.
                “It’s ‘and I’, honestly.” Archie clicked his tongue disapprovingly and continued, “I assume the sand would be from Horomancy. Specifically, one of his hourglasses, meant to induce sleep or visions in the weak-willed. Our Anastacia didn’t fall prey to those effects, obviously.” Archie sounded proud.

                Raze clamored over Flint and up the stairs to the wheel, “Stacy, can this thing go any faster?”
                She shot him a look and replied, “How am I supposed to know? I don’t even know how I made the thing. I just know I about killed the three of us doing it. I mean, Johan has the best idea and he’s a freakin’ skull.” She indicated Johan sitting on the guardrail next to her.
                He gave her a confused look and Flint added, “It talks to her, or she talks to him or something like ‘at.” Raze opened his mouth to speak, but was cut off by another shriek. The bo

                She slammed the skull down on the rail near the ship’s wheel and grabbed two of the spokes. “Okay, whatever-your-name-is, how do you drive this thing?”
                “I’ve been shanghaied!” The skull laughed, “Johan’s me name. You may want to raise the plank, lass. The anchor too, while you’re at it.” Johan clacked.
                Boot steps signaled Flint to her left. Dropping her forehead onto the wheel and immediately lifting it, realizing it was made of bone, she shot Flint a glance and sighed, “I have no idea what I am doing.”

                The image in her mind was a wasteland of jagged black rock and fiery, tortured souls scattered and chained everywhere. With a darkened sky with a black sun casting shadows that hide all sorts of devils and evil creatures. What she got, on the other hand, was something more akin to a worn-out bus terminal.
                The space they entered was made of decaying stone held up by haphazard metal scaffolding. There were obscene advertisements for every kind of vice slapped across dirty surfaces. They hung in various states of decay. The ground was littered with particles of the paper advertisements as well as a plethora of other refuse. The odor was immense, and she had to suppress an urge to gag.

                “Miss Anastacia, you must put forth effort if you are to improve.”
                A few months had passed and she had advanced to History of Necromancy and reading bones. The history was mostly listening to Archie drone about the past owner’s of the Grimoires and what they achieved in their lifetimes (sometimes it was and after-lifetime as well). More than once, she fell asleep.
                “You could simply hold the Grimoire and witness for yourself if you find my teaching so droll.”
                “Nope. I don’t care if you wanna quiz me or make me write and essay, or talk until I turn to dust. I am not goin

                Shortly after their discussing a plan, they were back to freezing half-to-death in the snow. Raze had summoned up Skarlet to fetch ‘sticks’ for the bonfires. The wolf brought back logs as big around as Stacy’s leg. Each time she was awarded with pets and belly rubs. It was an adorable scene to see Raze petting the enormous canine. Something, she suspected, a non-summoner probably shouldn’t try.
                Skarlet ran off after another stick and Stacy asked, “So, what are the odds that someone else would be able to pet Skarlet?”
                He stacked up a log and answered, “Without my say-so? Nil. They’d lose an arm, if not more.”

                More of the shops were open by then, and they were able to find a local map in an antiques store. When no one was looking, Raze took out a white stone and set it on the two maps. It started to glow and he put her hand on it. After a moment with both of their hands hovering there together the stone changed color to a deep purple he pocketed it quickly. She looked at him, confused, but he just put a finger to his lips. He put the map back and they left quickly.
                She inquired once they were outside, but he wouldn’t answer. He had a smirk on his face and kept shaking his head that he wouldn’t answer. She quit trying and changed the subject.

                Stacy had decided that she would make the best of a bad situation. All she had of her mother were memories, and it would be a dishonor to her memory to ignore her mother’s wisdoms. Except where it came to men. Nothing her mother ever said about men made any sense at all. Stacy stared at her water glass as she sat in the dining hall. She watched the ice move gently and thought, ‘Sorry Mom, I wish I could remember more of you. I never thought I would need those memories. I’d kill to have just one of your records to listen to.’
                “You look like you are back home somewhere.” A voice came from across the table, “This seat taken?”

    The place was pretty quiet without Mira. Stacy hadn’t realized just how much she did for initiating conversation. No one really spoke to each other without her around. Without her records or even a cellphone, she had nothing to pass the time. One can one take so much awkward silence. Eventually, she decided to explore outside.
                It didn’t take long for her to get completely lost in the garden. How she lost something the size of a castle, she wasn’t sure. What she was entirely sure of, was that she had entered an area that gave her a bad feeling. The grass wasn’t well watered or manicured like the rest of the place; and the trees were overgrown. With nothing better to do she meandered in anyway. At some point she picked up a stick she liked and was poking at trees and beating random tall grass. Never in her life had she experienced b

                The day came when Stacy was expected to attend tutoring. She grumbled the whole way down the hall as she searched for the room she was told to find. A purple room on the earth floor. When she found it, she sighed and walked in.
                It was immediately apparent the room was a study. There were two ancient wood desks setting in the center of the room. Setting next to them were tall chairs of matching wood upholstered in a deep purple. They looked plush and well used. There was also a table and two leather sitting chairs. The walls were lined with volumes of ancient leather-bound books. She tried to read the bindings, but very few had writing, and none were legible. All of it gave her shivers.

Stacy slumped in the oversized green Victorian chair with her head thrown back in boredom. As soon as they arrived it had been made clear that she was not going on this assignment. The headmaster had asked her to remain anyway so that she could hear how an assignment was made. She stayed, but very reluctantly.
                This particular assignment was on the corporeal plane, but not the same part Stacy was from. This was an area of the plane which was home to elves. An individual was creating chimera-type creatures from the dreams of the local peoples. A witch doctor of sorts. This violated the law of the dream veil and so the council had put forth an order that the individual be arrested.
                Stacy raised an eyebrow, “Dream veil?” She looked at the Headmaster, but Durward answered her, “There are many v

                Ten minutes of shouting later, Durward escorted her out of the Headmaster’s office.
 
    “Necromancy? He seriously wants me to command an army of the undead or something? I can’t even handle finding a dead mouse in the cupboard, I freak out! AARGH!” She threw the grimoire at the wall of her new room with a scream.
    After crying herself to sleep and refusing several meals; her stomach finally won the battle and she wandered her way down to the kitchen in the middle of the night. After some wandering she finally found it by accident. It was all done in rock and marble, but it had a fridge. She was half expecting some medieval pantry and a hearth. She scoffed and rolled her eyes, but raided the fridge anyway. She managed a bowl of cereal in the end.
    As she ate, she wondered what time it was. Looking around the kitchen, she finally found a

So tossing around some ideas to rename Underworld Academy...my favorites so far are Purgatory Finishing School, Pandemonium Academy, and Otherworld University. Perdition Prep wasn't too bad either. I just have to pick one...so I thought I would see if anyone wanted to weight in before I decided?

I fool around with many artistic mediums. I mostly write fan-fiction nowadays, with brief forays into original work. I also have several friends who are talented artists. I enjoy looking at art as much as creating it.

Art is meant to express emotion for the artist, and stir emotion for the beholder. Those emotions are not always the same.
