    The Chosen One: Chapter 1: How it all Started

    As l walked around Sapeia Forest l saw three others dancing around the campfire trying to make the legendary Mira's spirit appear. Rumour has it that if you succeded Mira would give the four a prophecy. I went to join them so that they dont stay there all night and day dancing. As l came over, darkness passed over my eyes, and l felt like someone pushed me over, but l felt no paws, claws, or fins. Like someone or something was trying to keep me from getting to my prophecey. It was really no suprise, to tell the truth. Ive heard from other jammers that it happens whenever you had either a really bad prophecey or a really good one and on some rare ocasoions that you held the fate of Jamaa in your very paws. I hoped it was a good one. Oh! Forgot to interdouce my self. My name is Sparkle Magicmoon, black wolf with white muzzle and mauve swirls and white firey eyes. You get the picture. I never thought I would get a major prophecey but as a wolf pup i thought it would be cool until my mother told me the dangers of it. ((Next AJ code: winter))
