Hi everyone! This is my first fanfiction, so it probably won't be amazing, but I hope you enjoy it anyways.

Chapter one: The gift

Alex groggily blinked awake to see small glimmers of faint light through her blinds. Why was it so early? Finally, she registered the hands shaking her awake. "ALEX. WAKE UP ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY! ALEX!" Her three best friends greeted her with wide grins. "Aaaaargh," Alex groaned as she slowly sat up, letting her eyes adjust to the light. Suddenly, her brain kicked in. "It's my birthday!" she cried.

"Yes, we know Alex - that's what we've been trying to tell you for the last five minutes. Now GET UP!" Dix shouted in her face. Alex leapt out of bed, dashed to change into her usual jeans and t-shirt and met her friends outside the door. They dragged her quickly to the dining hall: they were obviously excited about something. That was when she remembered: they are served an awesome breakfast buffet on someone's birthday! She ran behind them before quickly arriving at the hall. Taking their seats at their usual table, the group waited eagerly for the meal to begin. Alex scanned the dining hall. Where was Kaiden? All of a sudden, he was standing next to her leaning on the table. "How do you do that!" Alex cried.

"I have my talents"

Alex glared at her boyfriend. During their trip to Tia Auras, (a successful one), they had officially become a couple. Turns out the entire school had shipped it. "Anywho," Kaiden declared, "I have a present for you."

"Ooh! Let me see!"

"Your wish is my command." Kaiden revealed a package beautifully wrapped in brown paper. "I found this in Tia Auras. You're probably going to be mad at me for not giving it to you earlier, but at least I know you will like it." Alex untied the bow and tore off the wrapping. Inside was a small glass bottle covered in intricate carvings, with a label reading Raearso la pouchette in black calligraphy. But that's not what Alex read. At she stared at the bottle, the translator in her head kicked in and she gasped. Resurrection potion.

Ok, I know this is short but there will be a couple more chapters coming. As I said, this is my first fanfiction so feel free to leave reviews and/or constructive criticism to help me get better at this. Also feel free to give me a better title: this is literally all I could think of. Hope you enjoyed, I'll update soon!
