First day of warrior training, and Robyn, Kit, and Cam discover the temptation of the black vial:
In this snippet, Robyn, Kit, and Cam are given their first challenge—how to use magical elements to create doors. However, they also learn about the black vial, it’s haunting temptation, and that not all of their teachers trust them. This is the main crux of the story:
“Each day when you come,” Miss Mazy said, “you’ll learn about these elements—what they are, how potent they are, and how to use them. Your job is to mix your own concoction using your personal choices. When you have the right mix, it’ll turn clear. You then soak your fingers in it, flick the mixture toward the wall, and voila! You create a door. If the concoction is balanced correctly, the door you make will be sanctioned with the symbol of the rising sun. If not, it will backfire—you’ll learn that quickly. It’s a matter of give and take, feel, and intuition.”
“Can we blow up the lab?” Bryan asked. “I mean, by accident.”
Coach White smiled. “Relax, everyone—no one is capable of causing an explosion.”
Miss Mazy said, “I know the royal family chose wisely. You’ll be the most creative team of warriors we’ve ever trained. I know you’ll be cautious and wise in your work. In no time, you’ll be able to use your magic-sense to its greatest potential.”
Dr. du Monique twisted an eyebrow and said, “That may be very well and true, but I trust the Legend. Every element is available to you,” Dr. du Monique continued, waving his arm over the assortment of flasks, beakers, and bottles. He stopped at the dark, forbidden vial, then lifted it off the table. “Except, of course, this one.” He walked it over to the cabinet and locked it away. Then he stared the warriors down, one by one. His gaze paralyzed them. “My prediction stands. One-third of this team will defect to Midnight. And that vial will be your downfall.”
