Madison glanced at the red gates that surrounded the new school that she was gonna be attending. She pulled out her student ID and waved it in front of the intercom which was red and shaped as a Phoenix.
The gate made a creaking sound and puffed out some silver smoke before it began to slide to the left side. It was the first day of the school year and some of the all around year students had a plan.
Madison watched as two white pegasus flew down from two towers on the main castle, and picked up her luggage, carrying it off the cabin.
She walked up to the large timber doors and fear started to boil in her stomach, it was real. She would be spending her middle and high schooling here. She had started middle school at another school but they had kicked her out after she got a B on her maths test.
That school had also been her primary school and she had noticed a lot of strange stuff.
She was twenty years old but had missed a lot of schooling due to time spent as a Lilac Bush, she looked like she was around 16-17 years old. Her mother had chosen to turn her into a Lilac Bush after Madison discovered that her mother was a wanted spy.
Madison took hold of one the timber door and pushed it open. Smells of chocolate and lavender floated around her as she stepped in.
The walls were a light red and the floors were pine timber. As Madison walked in, she looked to the left where the main office was and she noticed that it was busy with new students, and returning students. She began to have a look around when she found black leather seats in a corner, facing a support centre and what must have been teacher dorm rooms.
Madison settled down into the couch when she saw her old youth-worker and English teacher Timothy. He had disappeared in the middle of her 5th year at Sun Moon Academy, after being dragged out of the class by two huge security guys.
She remembered the frightened look on his face. Ice blasted onto the nearby wall, next to his wall and Madison cursed inwardly, she needed to learn to take control of her powers. Timothy looked confused as ice climbed the wall as he looked up from his notes.
Timothy looked in front of him and saw Madison who was staring at the wall in shock as she had never done that much ice magic before. She was shaking from the sudden burst of power.
“Sorry…” She said as she looked at him and she couldn’t help but noticed a scar on his mouth.
“It is okay Mads.” Timothy noticed how her blue eyes sparkled as he called her by his special nickname for her. She reached her arms out to him but then hesitated.
Timothy walked over to her, and he pulled her into his arms. Madison closed her eyes as she sunk into his embrace and Timothy became concern as she began to cry and shake.
Despite that she was twenty years old, her ice magic made her age and mature slower then humans. There were days where she still seemed like a little kid.
Madison had also spent time as a French Lilac Bush after her mother had turned her into one. This had made her age even slower.
“It is going to be okay Mads. It is going to be okay.” Timothy said as he took her into his office.
“No! No it is not! No it is not okay!” She sobbed before she said something in Hebrew or was it Arabic. Timothy wasn’t too sure, Madison was fluent in both Hebrew and Arabic as well as French and Spanish.
“What did you say?” He asked as he moved her hair out of her face.
“It was my fault.” She whispered.
“What was your fault? Timothy asked, looking confused as she sat on his couch. Her eyes studying the light purple carpet that lined the office.
“What happened to you!” She almost snapped the words out and Timothy shook his head.
“Wow! No!” Timothy sat next to her. “It wasn’t your fault!”
“If the class had listened and stopped talking-” Madison began to protest.
“Madison Rose Night, it was NOT your fault!” Timothy gasped, he hated knowing that she blamed herself for him getting fired. “I encouraged and still encourage my students to use their brains.”
Madison looked up at him and she admitted “We heard your cries from the principal’s office after you told us you got fired.”
Timothy blinked back tears as he hated the memories of that day and he said “Let’s go and get your welcome pack.”
“Welcome pack?” She asked as he walked with him to the office.
She noticed that his shirt had came unbuttoned and there were scars on his chest that was barely visible.
“Every new student get a welcome pack and an egg each.” Timothy said when they got to the office. “I will see you at English Class.”
Madison gave a nod but secretly, she wanted him to come with her. She played with her Hebrew necklace as she walked into the office.
She walked up to the desk and the office lady gave her a dark purple backpack which was her welcome pack.
“Miss, I will remind you that you are not allowed to date your teachers.” The office lady said.
Timothy walked to his classroom which was 4A, he tried to ignore the nausea that was building up and shooting bile into his throat.
He sit down on his chair and rubbed his face, there was five minutes to class.
His stomach began to turn and as Madison walked in, he was turning quite pale.
“Timothy, umm… Mr. Dawn are you okay?” Madison asked as she sat at the front of the class.
Timothy nodded as he handed her a notebook and he said “We are learning about-” he swallowed hard.
Madison took his hand and said “You have also taught me not to bottle up my feelings.”
“I will talk to you after class.” He whispered to her as the other students began to walk in. He began to write something on the board about different tribes throughout the world.
As the class went on, Madison did her work as Timothy said to but she began to notice that some girls behind her was looking in her direction before giggling to each other.
“Hey Madison!” One called to her. “Is it true that you got Mr. Dawn bashed up at his last school?”
Madison ignored the question and continued copying off the board.
“I hear that her parents kicked her out of home because she isn’t Kiowa enough.” The other girl said before snickering. Madison fought back the need to blast them in the face with ice.
“Girls, that is enough!” Timothy snapped at the two giggling girls. He placed a hand on Madison’s shoulder when the bell rang. “The class is dismissed.”
Timothy waited until the classroom got empty before he lost his battle with his stomach and began to retch. Madison managed to take him to his dorm room and into his bathroom before he vomited into the toilet. His breakfast all came out and he had to sit on the floor.
Madison sit next to him and played with icy wind.
“Mads, it wasn’t true what the girls said.” He lifted his shirt revealing tons of scars. “This wasn’t your fault.”
Timothy took a deep breathe as Madison moved her hands over his scars.
He let out a sob but moved closer to her. Her hands were warm and he wasn’t used to the scars being touched without the pain.
“Mads.” He said. “Oh jeeze that feels good.” as she massaged the scars. “But you should go to class.”
Madison tensed up at the thought of going to her maths class but she said “Okay.” however ice floated around her.
Timothy frowned as he knew that was not a good sign but before he could say something, Madison went to class.
As maths class went on, the more scared Madison got and then BANG! Ice covered her desk and the wall next to her.
Madison went quiet as the teacher called Timothy to come to the classroom. The sudden burst of energy made her feel dizzy.
She wanted to run but her legs were still to shaky for that. Timothy walked in and he helped Madison to her feet. But to his surprise Madison run off in the direction of her dorm.
She felt like what she saw in Timothy’s eyes were disappointment.
Timothy followed her and he managed to slip between her and the door, blocking her from going in. Madison stared down, the pine timber floor was suddenly very interesting.
“Mads, come here. You are not in trouble.” He said as he pulled her into his arms.
She struggled and Timothy took her to his office. He had seen Madison in this type of state when her father had died.
“Let me go! Let me go! Let me go!” She sobbed.
“Shh, I have you Mads. I have you.” He said holding her close.
Madison buried her face into his shoulder and tears began to fall. Timothy’s door opened and Madison looked up, she grew worried as two Sun Moon Academy’s security guards walked in. She then heard the slight sound of a lockdown which meant they must have barged their way into Phoenix Hawk Academy.
“Hello Timothy, it has been a while.” They said in unison and vines flew out of their hands tying him to the chair.
Madison tried to shot ice at the security guards but nothing happened.
“Run Mads!” Timothy begged her as one of the guards pulled his shirt off.
“I am not leaving you. I am not letting you get hurt, not alone, if my ice power can’t stop the pain.” Madison protested and Timothy could see that she wasn’t gonna give in.
Timothy screamed as the guard hit him in the chest with thorns. Madison threw out her hands and made a wall of Ice but the thorns smashed the ice to pieces.
Madison moved closer to Timothy’s side and force all the ice magic that she could, she blasted the guards hard.
“Oh my gods.” Timothy said as she shook. The guards were mad! They began to kick and punch Timothy in his groin and sent the most painful of thorns through him.
Madison sat up slowly and ice blasted the guards into the window. Phoenix Hawk Academy walked in and took the evil guards away.
Timothy looked at Madison in surprise and amazement, she had tried to protect him. Timothy pulled her against him, she picked up the First Aid Kit and started to clean him up. He flinched at first but then relaxed as she used a little frost as ice packs.
Things were great for 2 months until a new student called Lucy arrived.
Madison hummed as she walked from her Pegasus Riding Lesson when she saw Timothy walking up to her. She smiled as she walked up to him.
“Hey.” Madison said cheerfully but then noticed his stormy expression. His hazel eyes were dark.
“Don’t you hey me.” Timothy said, his voice took on a professional tone. “Lucy says you have been bullying her.”
Madison looked shocked. She had been nice to Lucy since she had arrived.
“I haven’t. I don’t bully people.” Madison said. “I have been trying to be her friend.”
Timothy didn’t look convinced and he walked off.
Soon it was English. Madison sat in her normal spot and Timothy began to hand out assignments. He placed hers down on her desk.
“You got an F!” Timothy snapped. “Haven’t you studied?!”
Madison was silent, she could hear her bullies snickering.
“I did study.” She whispered. Tears sting her eyes.
“Well you need to study harder!” Timothy snapped.
“Yes sir.” Madison whispered but Timothy didn’t hear.
That night Timothy was busy finishing paperwork when he heard loud music form the students’ dorm level.
‘Juicy Wiggle.’ by Red Foo was playing. Madison was dancing on the table while her best friends had sneaked in Vodka through the pegasi.
Food was lined up on the tables. Timothy walked in and he sighed.
This was the last thing that he needed! He told the students to go to bed and that they would be punished in the morning.
It was visiting day, the next day and Timothy with the help of the chaplain Ella.
Timothy was walking around the gym when he heard yelling from the back of the gym and went to see what it was. As he walked over, he was alarmed by what he saw.
“A F! MADISON ROSE NIGHT!” A woman screamed, with a glare that looked like it would burn Madison at any moment.
“Yes Ima.” Madison whispered, her shoulders slumped and she was looking at the ground. Ima meant mum in Hebrew.
Flames surrounded the woman’s hands and Timothy threw his hands out using his water power to pull Madison into his arms.
The flames hit a table that was nearby and the table turned into a Butterfly Bush.
“Security!” Timothy called and Madison began to shake.
Security flew in and took Madison’s mum outside where she couldn’t get to Madison.
“You should have let her turn me into that bush.” Madison sobbed as she pulled away from his arms.
Timothy felt tears roll down his face at those words that she said.
“I can’t lose you Madison.” He admitted. “I know I stuffed up these past few days but..”
He knew it was unprofessional but he wrapped his arms around Madison.
“Timothy…” Madison was confused but before she could say anything else, Lucy stormed over.
Madison felt Timothy tensed up as Lucy got ear and Lucy reached for Timothy’s ass. Madison saw this and she waved her hand, sending Lucy flying into the bush.
Timothy took Madison to her room where she fell asleep. The End.
It was the start of February, the second bunch of new students were starting at Phoenix Hawk Academy which was giving Timothy, a lot of work and he was very busy. This also meant he had not had much time for Madison and accidentally double booked her appointments, a couple of times.
He walked to his English class and sat at his desk and started to take the roll to see if everyone was there.
“Madison.” He called.
He looked up in surprise and at the desk she always sat at. It was empty.
“Anyone seen Madison?” He asked concerned.
“I haven’t seen Madison since Maths. She missed Pegasi Riding.” Stella, Madison’s best friend said.
Now that was not normal, Madison never missed her Pegasi Riding lessons.
At Madison’s dorm room
Madison grabbed her backpack and began to throw in clothes and other necessary things that she needed. She left the Hebrew star necklace on her side table. Her faith had abandoned her with what was going on.
Tears rolled down her face as she zipped her back pack up. How could her ex be one of the new students? How could he have been accepted.
She knew that Timothy didn’t mean to doublebook her appointments but she didn’t feel safe at the school. Madison wrote a note to Timothy explaining her decision.
She went to the pegasi stable and then to her pegasus’ stable. She got his saddle and saddled the dark blue pegasi, she hopped onto his back and flew off into the sky.
Timothy heard the bell ring and once the class had dismissed, he went to Madison’s dorm. First he knocked on the door and got no answer. He tried the doorknob, finding it unlocked, he opened the door. He stepped inside and found the room was empty.
Then he saw the note on the bed and he read it:
I can’t stay at PHA, now my ex Toby is now attending. I have always had feelings for you and wish I could have told you. I am going to New Orleans.
Timothy felt sick to his stomach as he sat on her bed. He had to get her back, he couldn’t lose her. She made him feel safe and he wanted her home. He pulled out his mobile and called his New Orleans police friend Stef.
Madison was watching a New Orleans parade when a police officer approached her.
“Are you Madison Night?” She asked Madison.
“Yes ma-am.” Madison said, she knew better then to lie to cops.
“I am Stef. Timothy called me. He is very worried about you.” Stef explained as she sat next to Madison.
Madison let out a sigh, she couldn’t believe that at all.
“Why would he be worried?” Madison asked after letting out a scoff.
“Because he cares for you. Also you do the one thing for him that no-one else does.” Stef answered.
“Which is?” Madison asked, looking at Stef.
“You make him feel safe.” Stef told her and Madison looked shocked. “After everything he has been through, you are the only thing that makes him feel safe.”
Madison blinked back tears and she said “I will go back but what about Toby..”
“Toby has been transferred to a different part of the school. It has also been made clear that he can not go near you or he will be arrested and sent to jurvie.” Stef reassured her.
Madison listened to her iPod while Stef drove her back to the school. Tears silently fell down her face as she held onto her stuffed dog Everest.
She noticed that they were getting close to the gates of the school and turned off her iPod, she began to feel sick to her stomach.
Once Stef let her out and walked her inside, Madison pushed the sick feeling beside and she run to Timothy’s office. She knocked on the door.
A pain shot through her stomach. Timothy opened the door and Madison wrapped her arms around him. To her and Stef’s concern, Timothy began to cry so hard that he began to gag.
Madison helped him back inside and grabbed his rubbish bin, she held him close as he began to throw up into the bin.
“Lucy’s father…he…” Timothy tried to explain but his stomach kept on interrupting.
Stef walked in and she guessed what he was trying to say.
“Timothy, can you show us where he hurt you?” Stef asked going into police mode.
Timothy shook his head, he couldn’t. It was too soon. He looked at Madison who said something to him in Irish. He looked at her and said “Close the door.”
First he got Madison’s necklaces and slipped them around her neck.
Timothy shook so much as he struggled with his buttons of his shirt. He looked at Madison helplessy.
“Mads, please help.” He sighed. Madison unbuttoned his shirt and took it off.
He closed his eyes and Madison stared at the bruises.
“Harah.” Madison cursed in Hebrew. She noticed that the bruises were going below his belt line.
Madison walked into English class, an hour later and sat down. She tried to listen to what Timothy was saying.
She looked at Timothy startled. She had been so much in her own thoughts that she had not heard him speaking to her.
Timothy looked concerned, that wasn’t like her.
“Can you read the first line of the book out please?” He asked walking over to her desk.
Madison started to read when a sharp pain went through her stomach, it was so bad that she let out a cry. Timothy caught her as she fell off her chair.
“Mads, what hurts?” He asked concerned as she tried to curl up in his arms.
“My sto-Mothy, I’m-” She swallowed hard as the pain made her feel nauseous.
She fought back tears and she tried to sit up as Lucy and her father walked in. She knew that seeing the guy would scare Timothy.
Stef saw this and walked over to the pair. This gave Timothy time to take Madison to his dorm.
She reached for Timothy’s hand and she gave him a look of support or tried to.
“I am here for you.” She said trying not to sob from the pain in her stomach.
Timothy said “It is okay to cry.” as he lifted her shirt.
It was 9.20 am on a Thursday morning, this meant Madison had English. She walked into her English Class and nearly slammed into her own desk. It had been two years since Timothy had gone missing in the middle of the night. But there, standing in front of the class, was Timothy, he was ready to teach.
Madison felt upset, her police friend Stef haven’t even told her that Timothy had been found. Not even a phone call.
She sat down and as she listened to Timothy talk about the meanings behind popular myths, she began to feel nauseous to her stomach.
It felt as if the classroom walls were closing in around her. She had to get out and she had to get out now!
She jumped from her seat and run of the classroom. She heard footsteps from behind her and Timothy pulled her into his arms.
“Madi, Mads. Slow down. Talk to me.” Timothy said between breathes.
“Let me go!” Madison sobbed despite the twenty two year old had missed him so much and wanted to hug him.
“Shh, I have you, Mads.” Timothy said. “I have you.”
“Mothy…Mothy…I am gonna…” Madison let out a whimper and Timothy got her to her bathroom where she lost her cornflakes into the toilet.
Madison began to sob before she buried her face into his shoulder. She started to cry really hard and the only words that she managed to get out was “I thought I lost you!”
“You won’t lose me that easy.” Timothy promised her.;
Madison shouted something in Hebrew then began to ramble off in her different languages.
Timothy’s phone began to ring and it was the chaplain Ella. Ella explained that a new student Anaelle needed her help.
He looked a bit torn. Madison stopped her rambling and went calm all of a sudden.
“Anaelle needs your help? Go it’s fine.” Her voice was too calm and that scared Timothy.
Madison had learnt a long time ago that Anaelle was a special snowflake.
But to her surprise, Timothy did something different. He wasn’t gonna leave Madison’s side.
“No Ella, I can’t come. I have to take care of Madison.” Timothy hanged up the phone and he moved Madison’s sleeves up.
There was some burn scars and Madison knew Timothy could stop her from the self harm. She used her own ice power to freeze her skin till it burnt. She moved her shirt up revealing the newer burn marks.
“Anaelle is more important.” Madison whispered and Timothy carried her to her bed.
“No, she is not more important. Not to me. You are the most important person in my life, you are my girlfriend.” Timothy said sternly and he kissed Madison.
Madison deepened the kiss when his phone rang again, interrupting the kiss. Timothy turned it off, he didn’t give a damn care if Ella got mad.
There were other school counsellors. He cleaned Madison’s wounds when there was a big BANG! Madison knew they were fireworks but Timothy wasn’t sure.
Timothy tensed up and Madison pulled him into her arms, she didn’t know what he gone through but she knew it was it was in a warzone.
“Mads, I am scared.” Timothy admitted.
He pulled his shirt off and she stared at his chest. There was bruises covering his stomach fully and a bandage around his chest.
“They did worse to me on my lower half of my body but…” Timothy looked down.
Madison covered him with a blanket so he could change into his pajamas pants without her seeing what happened.
“I can wait till you are ready.” Madison told him. Timothy pulled her into his arms and began to stroke her hair.
The next day, Timothy was in a snappy mood. He was grading assignments when Anaelle run into the classroom in tears. He looked up concerned.
“Madison yelled at me.” Anaelle sobbed.
Timothy let out a sigh and calmed down Anaelle, before sending her to Ella. He went and found Madison sitting on her favourite window seat watching the pegasi seat.
There was a distant look in her eyes and Timothy called “Madison.”
He didn’t touch her as he sat across from her because he knew that would get him blasted with ice.
“Timothy?” her voice shook as she could hear him but couldn’t see him.
Timothy took her hand and said “I am taking you to my dorm room.”
Madison let out a whimper and pointed behind him. She said “Bad people behind you.”
Timothy felt electricity shooting through his back and he began to gasp out of pain.
He was forced onto his knees and he felt one of the bad guys pushing him to the floor. Madison sent blasts of ice towards his attackers. She was slowly gaining her sight back.
She let out a horrified screams as the bad guys forced Timothy onto a black dragon.
Four years later
Madison was sixteen again instead of twenty two. Local doctors had to reverse her age to save her life.
She had chosen to restart middle school at a new school in Ice Frost City and her powers had changed from ice to fire.
Her powers strength depended on her emotions and strangely, at times, the nail polish that she was wearing.
Madison was walking to social studies when her arch enemy Layla started to create a huge wall of water in front of her.
In turn Madison created a huge wall of fire in front of Layla. For ten minutes, the two students was making their walls bigger and were about to send them flying at each other when a familiar voice shouted “Enough! Put your walls down!”
Layla put her wall down and walked off to class but Madison ignored the warning.
“Madison Rose Night, I said put down your wall.” Timothy ordered again. Her disobedience was starting to really annoy him.
“No!” Madison snapped as he began to turn her wall of fire towards him.
Timothy moved and activated a power block on the nearby concrete pole which blocked all powers. Madison watched as her wall disappeared.
“My office NOW!” Timothy said in his strictest voice.
Madison crossed her arms and shook her head. She stomped her foot and glared at Timothy.
“Make me!” She taunted. Timothy looked at her, his face full of sternness and tiredness.
“Madison, I am not taking this attitude from you. I know you can listen to my orders.” Timothy said trying to stay calm.
He took her hand and Madison didn’t respond at first. Her fingers slowly moved over his.
“No.’ It came out as a whisper and then she muttered something under her breathe.
“Mads, what did you say?” Timothy asked as she pulled her hand away from his.
“Stay away, I am dangerous.” Madison repeated. “It was my fault. What happened.”
Timothy frowned as she bolted from him and he sighed.
That night Madison looked at Timothy’s dorm room’s door, she kept on walking up and down the wall. Stopped looking at the door again.
Timothy opened his door, he wanted to find Madison and he sighed in relief seeing her. He pulled her into his arms and closed the door. He kissed her deeply, needing to feel her lips against his.
A flash of pink light floated around them and Madison’s bracelet flashed that she was now physically 20 years old but her mental age stayed at 16 years old.
“Mads, please please please.” Timothy said, his words rushing out. “Please don’t push me away.” it came out as a plead. “I need you. I don’t know how to cope with what happened.”
“I was scared.” Madison said. “I was scared that you wouldn’t want me anymore.”
She looked at him up and down, he was wearing only boxer shorts.
Timothy let her study all his scars and bruising that he had.
“I wasn’t your fault.” He told her.
Madison heard helicopters which was quite common around this time of night but Timothy began to shake.
She wrapped her arms around him and he said “Mads…Mads…I feel really sick.”
She grabbed a bucket as Timothy laid on the bed and he curled against her as she laid wrapping her arms around him. Soon he feel asleep in her arms. The end.
