The Lock Keeper ~ Story Idea

©2010 Bonnie Watson

The rate that humans consume energy for magical purposes is growing. To those who have shared this energy through Nature are now facing certain extinction. But the greatest power of all has yet to be discovered.

To best protect its treasure, Nature locks it away in an unbreakable chest. Thus the chest is hidden deep within a place no human dared venture unprepared. To break its seal, one must first find the guardian, one that bares the protected symbol over the heart. A key, shaped and sharpened to perfection, is cast away into the endless depths of the fiery chasms beyond the sea. Only when all three are together can the chest be open. But to do so, a life must be lost, a heart must be broken, and a soul must be restored to its proper place. The balance of magic hangs by a thread.

“Even I do not know what’s inside, for if I did it wouldn’t be a secret, now would it?”
~ Wick ~

“Bringing it here will only destroy what I swore to protect, and by my life will I uphold that promise!”
~ Dareth ~

“You protect a secret that you yourself do not even know until it’s opened, and when it you’ll never know whether that secret was meant to help, or to hurt… Don’t talk to me about what’s fair! You chose your fate. Now I’m choosing mine.”
~ Hammond ~

“Brings a whole new meaning to ‘guarding with your life’, doesn’t it?”
~ Wick ~

“So the legend is true. There really is such a thing as a ‘living’ lock.”
~ Skype ~

“Don’t look at me! It wasn’t my idea to journey into Hell for something you ‘think’ looks like a key!”
~ Hope ~

“The Roseepod People spoke of a chest. They said it contained a secret only one person is allowed to hear.”
~ Karin ~
