Dateline: Cameron fell sick and the doc sent Mitch
on a mission to get the holy water to heal her again.
“So what are we praying for?”
I asked the priest after yet another prayer session. “Rain.” he answered.
“Rain?” I asked. “Yes.” said he. “We haven’t had a single drop rain in
twelve years.” “Ah. I see.” I said. I felt sorry for the people.
“No rain for twelve years?”
Cameron asked. “Yep.” I said. I sat down and thought about what to do.
“No rain for that long? The holy holiday ends in three days. It going to
take a miracle to bring rain.” said she. Then an idea hit me. “I’ve got
it!” I yelled. “Got what?” she asked me I stood up and turned to her. “I’ll
bring the rain.” I sad. “What?!?” she asked. I covered her mouth. “I’m
going to go to Flame Mountain and ask Olympia to bring the people rain.”
I explained. “And if that doesn’t work?” Cameron asked me. “I’ll use my
powers.” I answered. I had to persuade Cameron my plan was going to work.
She finally agreed and I packed my stuff that evening.
“Well, I’m gone now.” I said later
that night. “Good luck.” said Cameron. Then she hugged me and I left.
My trip was long but it was easier
than my quest for the holy water. I reached Flame Mountain in two days.
The mountain was hotter than a volcano. I thought my feet were going to
be burned up. My hands were burnt and scared by the time I was done climbing.
My frustration turned into joy when I saw the temple of Olympia. Through
my pain, I ran to the temple. When I got there, a sign was posted in front
of the temple. This is what the sign said:
“Enter with a
pure mind, heart and soul.”
Taking full understanding
of the message, I began to think about the people in the desert and in
the whole Fantasy Realm. When I was ready, I entered in quietly.
Olympia’s temple was big and lavishing.
I was amazed. But I managed to keep my mind clear and begin looking for
the altar. Once I found, I quietly walked up to it and knelt down before
it. I prayed to my Holy one and used my powers all day and night.
I didn’t make it back until the
last day. On the way back, I noticed some drops. The drops began to increase
as I continued back. “It’s working.” I thought. Then I began running
towards the villages.
When I got to the villages, it
was pouring down hard. I saw the people running and playing in the rain.
I run over to them. “I did it.” I thought. “Mitchell!” a voice cried
out to me. I turned and saw Cameron running towards me. “You saved them!”
she yelled. I didn’t say a word instead I just nodded mildly. Later that,
night Cameron and I hit the road at long last.
