Light of the Phoenix Chapter 3Chapter 3
Trial by Fire
Ri and Phoenix left the side room and walked down a hall. The hall led to another set of doors. As they approached the doors, Phoenix noticed something.
"You're shaking, Ri."
"So are you." said Ri. They laughed but stopped as the doors opened. The doors opened to a large theater-like room.
"This," said Phoenix "is the assembly room for Order of Sunna members. And the front, that's where you'll sit- after the initiation."
"You'll sit too." reminded Ri.
Ri, who had been deemed Heir Phoenix since age five, had not been invited into the Assembly Hall, for protection purposes. Phoenix, as a Order member since she turned thirteen, knew more about the meetings than Ri. Ri looked around.
"Wow." was all Ri could say. The room was beautiful, with red and white banners, each with a phoenix on them. The chairs were made with dark red velvet. The room was semi-circular, with the chairs raised in tiers around a stage. On the table on the stage, there was a white-on-red cloth

"I don't wanna to do it! I don't wanna! You can't make me!"
Ri was crying hard. I was late night, after the party.
"Ri, we said we'll help! come on!" said Phoenix.
"Yea, don't wallow in your own self pity." said Leslie, Adrian's other sister. The three of them shared one brother, Remiel, also known as Remi.
"But-" said Ri

Ri looked up.
"I'm sorry," said Ri. "Thanks everyone."
Remi clapped his hands together. "Alright," he said "let's get you ready for your big day."
The night before Ri's birthday, she had a sleepover. All the Lunars, plus Tanya and Phoenix were there, as well as Leann, Lauren, and Lorelei. Leann and Lauren were both dark skinned but Leann had short black hair with two braids on either side of her head. Lauren Edgewood was brown all over. Hair, eyes; everything was brown. Lorelei Nocturna was a computer genius- slash - weapon-crazy girl who grew up with Ri. It was known in the group that Ri and Tan

Today was one of the worst ever, at least for one girl. On the top of a hill in a city called Startower Hills stood a large house. In this house, two girls sat in a bedroom. The girl with the bad day was named Sirietta Midnight.
"I hate everything!" she yelled. She seemed worried.
"Why Ri?" asked the other girl.
"You already know, Adrian." Ri said, irritated, "You know what today is." She didn't want to talk to anyone about it.
"So do I." said a voice at the door. Adrian's quadruplet sister, Siri Lunar was standing there.
"It's time." Siri said "Everyone's downstairs"
Ten minutes later, Ri and the others were in the family room for the party for Ri, but Ri wasn't celebrating. Another of Ri's friends, Tanya Wildwind, approached Ri and asked "Why aren't you celebrating, Ri? I would be if it were -"
"Shut up, Tanya." Ri snapped.
Usually, Tanya was easy going and had an even temper, but no one told her to shut up.
"Fine then!" she snapped, "I was
