Jovi the Magical
Girl (chapter 1)
“WHHHAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!” Jovi screamed as she ran from the giant bat creatures.
One of the bats swooped down and grabbed her emergency cell phone from her hand, leaving her and the
other students to run for their lives.
Down the hill they sped until the dorm houses where in sight.
“We're almost there! Go, go, go!!” Jovi yelled and looked back to check on the bats.
They were only a few yards behind, but everyone could tell they were just coasting.
Just as Jovi turned back to the dorms she tripped, and fell forward to the ground. Everything seemed
to be moving in slow motion. The high school students running past her. The giant bats gaining up on
all of them, screeching so loud it made Jovi's eardrums hurt. The beeping of what seemed to be a
Jovi painfully raised her head, loose pieces of her long tan braid whipping her face in the strong
wind. What she saw was an amazing sight. A baby fox-like animal, strange markings covering its head
and body, and a small device gently clasped in its mouth.
It lowered its head and softly put the device on the ground in front of Jovi, looked into her
surprised eyes and spoke in a female child's voice.
“Here. I need you to take this and transform to help everyone.” She said, her green eyes
glowing. “Come on, take it already!”
Jovi reached forward, but paused when she saw the fox walk over to a scratch on her arm. She wanted
to retract her arm, but stopped when the fox closed its eyes and blew a stream of light energy on
the wound. After a brief moment, it stopped and examined its work.
Jovi lifted her arm to eye level to gape at the previous scratch; there wasn't any scar or any trace
of a sore at all. She looked back at the fox, and it pushed the device forward with its nose.
She pushed herself up with renewed strength, picked up the device, and had barely studied it when a
screeching came from right behind her. She spun around to find one of the bats headed straight for
“No!” Jovi screamed as she threw herself in front of the fox and kicked the bat as hard
as she could. She sent it shrieking across the field, and she turned back to the device.
“What did you mean by transform?” Jovi said breathlessly and turned it over and over. It
was circular and on one side had a dark screen that took up half the light blue mechanism. On the
bottom half was a series of buttons, all circles, and had odd marks written on them. On the other
side was a small latch and square cut into the main body.
“I mean turn into a Magical Girl! You better hurry! The Batroms are catching up!” The
fox yelled above the screams of the students. Jovi glanced unknowingly at the fox and back to the
device. She undid the latch and the hidden part sprung open. Underneath it was a star shaped hole,
small and indented at the bottom.
Jovi paused. She picked up her necklace, which had a star charm that looked much like the hole in
the back of the mechanism. She snatched it off her neck and placed the charm in the hole. Nothing
happened, so she turned it, and a light exploded from the screen in the front. Once she turned it
over, a hologram shone half a foot from the monitor, lighting up her face under the oncoming clouds.
A big blue button under the screen pulsed brightly, and Jovi held her hand back in thought.
“Do it!” The fox yelled, and Jovi unconsciously pressed down hard on the switch. The
hologram changed temporarily into the shape of her body, then showed new clothing on the miniature
figure. It stood still for a moment, spinning in slow circles.
“Put it to your chest!” Jovi followed the instructions and placed the screen to her
heart. Swirls wrapped around her and consumed her whole body, replacing her old clothes with the
ones that were displayed in the hologram.
Once the swirls died down, Jovi looked down at herself, amazed at the sight. She now looked like a
cyber-girl with dark blue metal patches in random areas on her skin. She had a blue strapless top
with a sheer tube that flowed around her, and matching sleeves that attached to the top of her arm
and billowed in the wind and almost covered her hands. She had a pair of short denim shorts with a
long piece of the long, see-through cloth attached to each leg. A dark blue, thick belt hung around
her waist, and a small black clip hung for the device. Her hair had grown twice its length and the
tips had turned bright white against her shiny tan hair. On her forehead was another blue metal
piece that was shaped as a star. She was wearing shiny silver-metal boots that went up to her calves
and had a blue star at the top of each one.
She turned around and around, looking at the back and front of her new self. She scowled fiercely at
the Batroms as they picked at her best friend, Molly. She turned back to her device and consciously
pressed another flashing button. Light burst out of the screen and she held it out to the Batroms
surrounding the girl. It did not harm Molly, but the Batroms squealed desperately and dissolved into
Molly looked down at herself and up thankfully at Jovi. Jovi nodded and Molly stood, bowed, and
continued running down the hill. A screech filled the air as the Batroms flew as fast as lightening
toward Jovi. She looked up and flipped out of the way just before they grabbed her. She scanned her
gadget for another flashing button, and it took a moment before the middle button flashed again.
“But if that's the one that transformed me, wouldn't it change me back? I'm not going to press
it if that's the case. C'mon, show me a different one to push!” Jovi shook it and looked up
just before the Batroms sped toward her. She leapt into the air and spun once before landing on her
“Humph, if it'll help me win, then the heck with it!” Jovi pressed it and held it out
with both hands toward the Batroms as a shield to herself. The brightest light she had seen blew
from the screen and made all the rest of the Batroms broke up into small bits.
Jovi blinked, shocked at the sight she had just seen. People began to surround her from all over,
applauding and cheering loudly. She glanced at the small device in her hand. One last button was
blinking. She pressed it softly, not sure what it would do.
It made a hushed beep and the device floated out of her hands. It started glowing briefly and
hovered for just a moment. Jovi stood to see what it was doing, and it started spinning wildly,
giving off a huge air current all around it. Either side of the screen began to flash and long beams
of blue light slowly emerged from those sides. It stopped just a few feet from the TransRom, and
floated back down to Jovi's hands. On the ends of the blue light were what looked like pieces of the
TransRom, holding the beams to the main device. The beams themselves were flat and wide, curved
wider from the TransRom to the ends, and gave off an occasional shimmer.
“It's a board!” Jovi exclaimed and laid it gently on the ground. As soon as she stepped
onto the light, her boots automatically stuck firmly to the shaft of light, so she felt as if she
were riding a snowboard. A button was blinking, and Jovi crouched down to push it, trying her
hardest not to fall off balance. As soon as she did, she began to hover a few feet in the air. She
laughed and leaned this way and that to keep stability. The same button kept flashing and she
hesitantly pressed it again. A pair of boosters appeared on the left side of her board, the insides
glowing a bright orange.
“Uh, I'm not sure that was supposed to happEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!” She screamed as
she soared into the air, flying around the oncoming crowd. She laughed excitedly, adrenaline pulsing
through her veins. She halted, levitating, and she realized she had forgotten the fox below. She
pointed the board back down and swooped straight down.
“Get out of the way!!!” Jovi screeched as she used her arms for steadiness. Once she
approached the fox she plucked it up, and turned back upward, holding the fox close to her body.
“What is your name??” A boy shouted from below, and Jovi hovered peacefully again, the
boosters glowing softer and pointed straight down..
“Uh, what's my name?” Jovi whispered to the fox, who said, “I don't know, just
ignore them. They'll come up with something I'm sure.” Jovi nodded and rocketed in the
direction of her house, a blue blur in the sky.
“Where are we going?” The fox asked, and Jovi smiled.
“A friend's house.” She said simply and advanced faster.
“You do realize you can't tell anyone about this, right?” Jovi skidded to a halt.
“You cannot tell anyone about you or your TransRom. It's totally on a need-to-know basis.
Secret. If anyone finds out you'll no longer be a Magical Girl.” The fox said solemnly and
looked into Jovi's eyes.
“You have got to be kidding me.” Jovi said and slowly continued, the long gauchos
flowing behind her leisurely. She shook her head. “Fine. Alright. I won't tell anyone. But can
at least I bring you around as my pet or something?”
“Well, you CAN transform me into a normal looking fox, not the Magical one I am, but it only
lasts about 24 hours at a time, with a five hour resting time.”
“Better than nothing… Besides, I don't think I would keep you normal for that long
“And the longest you can stay a Magical Girl is an hour.”
“And how long exactly have I been one?” Jovi sped up a little bit.
“About fifteen minutes. But just so you know.” The fox said and stared down at the
ground speeding underneath them.
They went through a moment of silence as they watched the peaceful scenery.
“How'd you know it was me?” Jovi finally asked.
“I don't understand what you mean.” The fox said.
“Well, how'd you know it was me who was to be a Magical Girl?”
“You had all the traits of one. Commanding. Brave. A true leader. And I was also told it was
“The MPA. Magical Persons Association and Aid.”
“Hey, I wasn't the one who came up with the name. They want you to go there for training, so
that you will be as good a Magical as your Father.”
“Crew? Yup yup. He's the best one out there.”
“My. FATHER??” Jovi's eyes grew large and she held out the fox at arms length after she
halted in midair.
“I thought we already established this. Your. Father.”
“Don't say it! Yes! You're father is a Magical!! Get over it!!” The fox yelled and
squirmed in Jovi's tight grasp. “He wasn't allowed to tell you, but now he can because you are
officially one as well! Now get to the MPA headquarters now where he is waiting for you!”
“Well, I guess I can't go tell my friend now, thanks to that little detail you could've told
me BEFORE I took off. Let's go.” Jovi paused. “Where is it exactly?”
The fox groaned. “Just keep heading west. You'll find it eventually.”
“What is your name, anyway?” Jovi hugged the fox again and kept flying, heading away
from the still rising sun.
“Crimsya. And yours is Jovianna Elizabeth Fisher.”
“Lucky guess.” Jovi mumbled and kept flying, scanning the forest she was passing over
for any sort of building. “What does the headquarters look like?”
“I said you'll find it eventually.”
“That's no help at all. Can't you be a little more cooperative?”
“Nope. This is your quest not mine.”
It was Jovi's turn to groan. “Any little piece of advice? Please?”
“Will you stop begging if I tell you?”
“Yes.” Jovi grinned and waited for the directions.
Crimsya shook her small head, large ears brushing the small patch of Jovi's bare skin. “I'm
not going to do this again.”
“Underground as in under the ground?”
“How else would I mean it?”
“Like, undercover. The underground railroad? That kind of thing.”
Jovi grunted and continued soaring above the trees.
Suddenly her TransRom began beeping and played a musical tone, just like a ring-tone in a cell
phone. She glanced down at the device, holding Crimsya out to the side to see. It was flashing in
erratic patterns and it continued the bleeps.
“What is that?” Jovi asked, slowing down.
“Someone is contacting you. Like a cell phone, but it has holograms instead of just voice.
It's pretty cool.”
“Gee, you're my little TransRom manual. Do you feel comfortable in one arm?” Crimsya
nodded and Jovi passed her over to her right limb and hovered in one place. With a quick movement
she crouched to look at it closer, and found the screen and middle button both flashing. She used
her thumb to press the button, and a hologram of a strange man appeared.
“Who are you?” Jovi asked.
“Strange greeting. Ah, hello Crimsya. I see you completed your mission. Anyway I was calling
to see what was keeping you. Any trouble?”
“Good to see you too, Captain. And I guess you could say there was trouble… Batroms
were all over the place. That's how Jovi got her power. And her TransRom began to work as
“Good, good. And it's weird that the Batroms were around… I thought they were
“Hey! What are you guys talking about??” Jovi yelled, and the man glanced tediously at
“The Batroms and how they're nocturnal.”
“That doesn't help me at all!” She grumbled, and the man held up a hand.
“I'm sorry, pardon my manners. I am Captain Greggory. You can call me Captain. Have you found
the way to the headquarters yet?”
“No. Crimsya is being stubborn and won't give me directions.” Jovi said and Crimsya
glared up at her.
“I can drop you.” Crimsya went silent and looked back at the Captain.
“Well, I better trust Crimsya's judgment. She is your keeper after all. I'll see you when you
“But, Captain, I--” The screen went blank before she could say any more. “Wow, he
was a load of help.” She muttered and pressed the blinking button to return the screen to
normal. She held Crimsya with both hands and continued west.
