Chapter 1:

Episode 1: Well Oops

The Five Celestial Star

Hello, my name is Arthur Caspian. I just got killed. Well, more like I passed out and went to heaven. Actually, it's more like I passed out and was teleported to another world.

This whole journey started because I wanted to have some fun. Everyone likes fun and joy, right? I was walking through a forest with a "No Trespassing" sign. Being the good-natured boy that I am, I didn't follow it.

The forest was so dense that I could barely see ten feet before me. I walked for hours (only 5 minutes) and couldn't find anything good. So I decided to turn back but fell down before I could take five steps. "Oh, no!" I said as I was falling.

I don't know what happened but what I do know is nothing because I passed out! What did you expect, an epic falling tale! NO! Of course not!

(If I do say so myself, I'm a 15-year-old boy with a really beautiful face. I have what everyone describes as "stormy" eyes. My hair is like the golden rays of the sun. See how handsome I am? Anyway, back to my falling.)

I woke up alone, lying in a puddle, in a clearing surrounded by woods, looking up at a row of teeth! Well, just my kind of luck! "AHHHHHHHHHHH!"

“Hello,” the dragon spoke, and the ground shook!

"AHHHHHHHHH...I screamed some more and tried to crawl away.

"Don't be afraid, Seraphic of the Celestial Star," the dragon said, and the ground shook some more.

Then he slowly transformed into an old man. He wore an iridescent black cloak. "I'm sorry if I scared you."

"Oh, no you are fine!" I said. "You gave me a minor heart attack, a near-death experience, hyperventilation, and mental damage. But by all means, I'm fine!"

"Okay, so what is your name?" he asked.

"NO! Mom told me before that you should never trust a guy who can turn into a giant dragon or take candy from them," I said.

"So, allow me to introduce myself. I'm the Colorful Ghost. Once again, I apologize for scaring you. I didn't mean to for you just suddenly appeared in my realm."

"I'm sorry for intruding on your territory. I have to go home, so, uh, see ya!!" I replied and walked towards the forest. I walked and walked and walked, but I couldn't seem to get anywhere. Then I started running, but still didn't get anywhere.

After trying a few more times I gave up. Of course, I am stuck here with a creepy old man who can transform into a dragon. “ugh,” I groaned, going back.

"Well, I just wanted to say that you can't leave here until you're ready to leave," said the old nerd.

"Well, I wish you'd told me before I left. Anyway, I won't tell you my name yet, and I still won't eat your candy,'' I said. Then we sat in the clearing for a long time. I fell asleep.

It was still dark when I woke up. It must have been morning already. I looked around and saw an old man by the campfire. I walked up to him and sat across from him.

"So, is this some kind of a real 3D punishment for the kids because I was trespassing?"

"I don't know what you're talking about," he said, handing me a clay bowl of reddish soup. I immediately rejected it, but my stomach tried to show me how to make a dog growl. "At least you should eat something."

"Oh, fine! Then I don't mind dying from the poison," I said, accepting the bowl. I ate it and it was actually okay! However, when I saw the small head of some kind of insect there, I regretted thinking that way. "Oh! I'm really going to die! Noooo! I am way too handsome to die!!

Um... I live! Hahaha, victory is mine!!

"So Seraphic, what's your name?" asked the geeky old man again.

"Well, I am not called Seraphic, and I am not going to give you my name"

"Then it can't be helped!" he said and then said something else I couldn't understand. "Your name is Arthur Caspian. You are 15 years old and live in Miami, Florida. You are in the 11th grade and are good at sports. I have no idea what this means, but now I know your name.”

Well. Hang on. What!!! How does he know that!!! "Are you a witch or something?"

"No. I'm a dragon. Some people call me a wizard."

"So, what does it mean when you call me Seraphic?"

"It means that you are one of the chosen ones who have the power to save this world."

"Of course, just my luck I don't want to save anything. Let me go home!"

"You can't go home until you complete all the challenges given to you."

"Oh, today is my lucky day. Darn it!! So what should I do? Learn magic and swordsmanship!! Hahaha, that's funny!"

"Yes, you will do all of that, and I will be your teacher."

"Great, so now I have to do all that to save the world!" This is boring. It's not my job to save the world, I want to have fun! "Can I please just leave and head back to my home."

"From what I know, you can not leave until you have learned the history of this world and training from me."

"Well dang it! I really don't like history. Oh fine then, please start Mr. Lizard" I was exasperated!

"Well, then I will tell you how this world was created and its history. Long ago..."
