The Chick Wand chapter 1

Chapter 1 (Oneshot)

There is a test to enter the magician’s school. Even if I say so, it isn’t a test of knowledge. All you have to do is simply grasp the wand with a milky white stone egg. If you have magical talent, the egg will crack.

Crack. The egg of the girl’s wand cracked. The egg transformed into the shape of a clear blue chick. Congratulations, you passed. The girl happily stroked the blue chick which was like a hard stone that didn’t even have temperature even when touched. From now on, we’ll be together for the rest of our lives — it was a wand just for her. A little later, another voice of congratulations was heard from behind. Looking back, a small boy taller than me was staring at a red chick wand in amazement. My eyes met with the boy’s. Finally snapping back to his senses, he hoisted his cane while smiling at me with a face full of pride. Thus the two childhood friends entered into the same magician’s school.

However, it doesn’t mean that the two were always on good terms. The magic that the chick releases is still weak. But because it was weak, a little difference would become a big difference. The girl’s blue chick would release a cold ice breath. The boy’s red chick would release a hot fiery breath. Under the pretense of magic practice, the two people often competed at the back of the school; and the girl would win every time. The boy felt bitter every time. No matter how many times he did it, the boy could not win against the girl.

One day, the boy’s temper tantrum finally exploded. This wand! He threw the red chick wand onto the ground. In between blinks, it smashed into pieces and scattered. The ground was littered in red fragments. The girl stared as she turned pale. The boy also turned pale at what he had done. Though teachers have strictly said that the wands were not to be handled roughly, there was never a time where it had fallen to the extent of breaking. That’s why I was somewhat relieved. It’s a thing that doesn’t break.

But the boy’s wand broke. Even if you gather up the fragments, it couldn’t be returned to its original form anymore. The boy was called to the principal’s office and left the school the following day. The girl cried while pressed against a teacher. Why can’t the boy come back to school. A teacher said. The chick broke because the chick ran away when it could no longer be with the boy. Because the boy no longer loved the chick. The boy has lost the qualifications to become a magician.

The girl stopped competing magic with anyone. I love my blue chick wand, so I’ll just slowly polish my magic quietly. As the girl grew up, the chick’s appearance also changed. Little by little, it shape became like that of a bird. And by the time the girl graduated from school, it had become a beautiful bluebird with a long tail.

After graduation, the girl entered the road to further study about magic. The road to distinguished military service by using magic to fight was recommended but I understood by myself that I was not cut out for that profession. With a splendid old magician as a master, I created new magic that was modestly useful for medicine and daily life. The bluebird wand was always at my side.

About four years have passed while studying under the old magician when a new disciple came in. The old magician said.It’s a disciple who can surprisingly stand toe to toe with you. It was a young man who carried a manly red bird wand. The moment the girl saw him, she almost dropped her precious wand and had to flusteredly catch it.

There stood a boy whose face resembled her childhood friend. It’s been a while.the boy shyly said. Dropping out of the magic school, every year he continued to take the entrance exam of a different magic school. The egg wouldn’t crack. But even if it wouldn’t crack, the following year, he would still attend the entrance examinations. Four years later, It cracked with a feeling of reluctance.the boy smiled bitterly while saying. He enrolled much later as compared to other people with boys smaller than himself. However, this time, he raised his chick by himself.

Do you want to fight after such a long time? the boy laughed. This time, I will not raise my temper. No, that’s alright. the girl smiled. Seeing the picture of the boy laughing together with his red bird wand; my heart is full.

Already, the wand is no longer a chick. And thus, the two people have also completely become adults too.

Fin.
