    Gathering Storms


    A quiet voice quickly announced my name again, saying, "Susan Richardson, age 15, presenting 'knife-tossing'." I hadn't noticed before, but a tiny, bald man was standing on the very edge of the stage, looking pretty nervous. I felt a slight pang of sympathy for the man, before silently viewing the rest of the stage.
    Standing across from me was a crudely drawn target, where I was no doubt supposed to aim my knives. I had already unsheathed by elegant knife, and was fingering it in one hand. The lilac-colored hilt felt cold in my palm, and I took a deep breath. Turning to the audience, I held up the jewel weapon for show. A crowd of watching eyes stared back at me, waiting for me to make a move.
    Across the stage I could see two pairs of eyes, one dark brown and the other dark blue. Destiny and Val were watching, urging me on.
    Slowly I brought my arm back, knife in hand. My eyes were fixed on the target, my feet in their normal position from ages of practice. What I did next all happened in mabye a couple of seconds. I launched my arm forward, twisting the knife in my hand to propell it forward. Something stirred in the back of my mind, and I found myself willing the knife forward, willing the wind to carry the blade to the target.
    The knife struck home, burrying it's sharp point in the dead center of the clumsy target. The target shuddered slightly from the impact of my throw, and a part of the blade had worked it's way through the heavy fabric.
    I strode over and held up the target to the audience, and a rumble of applause thundered back at me. I saw the bald man clapping on the edge of stage, and he was smiling broadly. I frowned at this, for only a moment ago he had been shivering in his own skin.
    I took a clumsy bow, and strode of the stage. I slipped the elegant blade back into it's hidden sheath, and joined Val and Destiny, who were waiting.
    "That was awesome!" Destiny burst out, a wide grin on her face and a sparkle in her brown eyes.
    "Not nearly as awesome as you were," I argued. "You were amazing! Really!" I added, seeing an embarrassed look creep across her face.
    "Okay, WHERE did you get the knife?" Val cut in, a look of anger and admiration on his face.
    "The same day you got—" I broke off, remembering Destiny was there. I trusted her already, and was positive that she wasn't allied with the masked men, but I couldn't be too careful. "That you got your gloves," I finished.
    Val was about to say something, but he quickly clamped his mouth shut. Destiny could tell we were leaving something out, and frowned.
    After the rest of the contestants had performed, we were all called out again for the awards. Everyone who had participated was awarded a medal, but the prize money went to two people only. Second place was awarded to a boy around my age with untidy hair, and first place was awarded to none other than Destiny McShae.
    "Congratulations!" I told her as she joined Val and I again, blushing furiously.
    Together, the three of us headed off the stage, Val complaining that he hadn't recieved any prize money. Suddenly, I crashed into a bulky figure, the impact knocking the breath from me. Tripping over my own legs, I sprawled over, only to look up to see a hand bent down to pull me up.
    It was the bald man.
