OOC: others can write and contribute to the story. Chapter 1 Dayton could hear Omecka's laughs across the hallway. He loved hearing his child's giggles. The only thing he loved more than her was magecasting. He looked back on when he could magecast, but when he did, he was overcome with sadness. He got his powers taken away because he got falsely accused of using them to hurt his wife, Maryion, who was also a magecaster. The only thing different between Dayton and Maryion was how much they liked magic. Dayton loved Magecasting, and entertained himself by magecasting. Maryion found no use for magic and thought it was a bore. "Daddy!!!" Omecka screamed. Cheeses and Maryion followed her cries. "What-" Maryion started to say. All three of them stood staring at the window. Well, no. Not staring. Open-mouthed, wide-eyed gaping. "Mt. Apollo!" Cheeses yelled! Smoke started to fill the room. They all ran out of the house. But as a mother and wife, Maryion felt the urge to collect all of the family's jewelry and their safety deposit box just in case they needed to pawn them for money. Dayton and Omecka boarded a ship, awaiting their fate. Maryion, however was lost in the smoke, and never seen again.
