Jovi the Magical Girl (chapter 1)
By Javagrl

 


CHAPTER ONE

“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 cell phone.

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 the fox.

“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 the air.

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 feet again.

“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.

“What?!”

“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 anyway.”

“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 you.”

“By whom?”

“The MPA. Magical Persons Association and Aid.”

“Isn't that MPAA?”

“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.”

“MY 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.”

“My--“

“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?”

“Nope.”

“Please?”

“Will you stop begging if I tell you?”

“Yes.” Jovi grinned and waited for the directions.

“It's underground.”

“WHAT????”

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.”

“Nope. Underground.”

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 well.”

“Good, good. And it's weird that the Batroms were around… I thought they were nocturnal.”

“Yes, they are--“

“Hey! What are you guys talking about??” Jovi yelled, and the man glanced tediously at her.

“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 bite you.”

“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 get here.”

“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.
