Chapter Text

Everyone has magic, it's simply buried within their Soul. Usually, it's untouchable to humans, but there are very rare cases in which they can control it and morph it to their designated Soul Magic. Soul Magic is what the color of your Soul represents. For instance, if the beings Soul is pure red, then it's most prominent trait is DETERMINATION. However, a full Determined Soul is rare among any creator or being. If the being is a full Determined Soul, they may be highly dangerous for any other being since the power of DETERMINATION allows-

"Serin!" I looked up to see a girl with blonde twin braids and cherry red eyes staring down at me with a smile that screamed: "Notice me senpai~!" Apparently, she had been signing to me for the past moments while I thought about how childish she looked with the school uniform on. "Serin, Serin are you watching me?!"

"No, sorry, what's up Ivy?" I finally responded, closing the book on my desk with a soft thud. Ivy huffed at me and turned her back to me, I rolled my eyes at her. She's such a child!

"You would know if you were paying attention to me!" Ivy whined as she turned back to me and sat down. "I was asking you if you were going to university after school ends next week." My eyes widened as I realized, I don't have clue what college I'm going to.

"Shit!" I sighed, "No! I totally forgot to apply!"

"Serenity. Smith. Williams. Did I just watch you curse?" Ivy signed with a very serious face, but we both broke out in giggles. It's very rare for me to curse in school, or in general, but you know, incidents happen. "Why didn't you apply?" Ivy finally signed after our giggling stopped.

My asshole of a father won't help me pay for it, I thought bitterly. But instead, I resolved to just not having enough time. "I was very busy," I start, "It isn't as if I could just up and go to university, even if I had the money."

"Why not? Your dad has enough money to send you, right?" YesI thought quietly, but mom was the one who was going to pay for college since dad couldn't do that for me or- I shook my head, I was not going to cry again over that.

"Yeah, he does, but he's saving it up, to buy a new house or renovate this one so when he passes I'll have a place to go."

Ivy frowned and started to talk. Even though I can't hear her, I can tell that she's trying to comfort me. Or she's muttering curses to my father for being so dumb. We just sat there for a few minutes before Ivy started to sign.

"What were you reading about?" Immediately I felt my face light up like a firework.

"I was reading about Souls, Soul Magic, Soul Traits and-" Ivy clapped her hands together to tell me that the bell had rung. She waved goodbye and went to her next class while I just went back to my book. I flip it open to where I left off and tried to focus on the book.

If the being is a full Determined Soul, they may be highly dangerous for any other being since the power of DETERMINATION allows for more magic accessibility. While this isn't harmful to the wielder, it can be harmful to those around them as to the overexposure to the magic. That got me thinking about the monsters that moved onto the surface a few years ago, do they know all of this stuff as common knowledge, or do they do research too?

I read until I felt my phone vibrate in my pocket. While I was packing up my things, someone bumped into me causing my phone to drop out of my pocket. The person, who happened to be a brown-haired boy, simply handed my phone back and walked off. How rude, he could have apologized to me! I calmed down when I realized that he probably didn't know I was deaf. Not many people really know until Ivy tells them. But who can blame them, it's not like I actually associated with anyone other than Ivy and- No. Ivy is the only one who understands my signing anyway, so I can't really communicate with others that well. Ignoring the sense of deja-vu, I checked the book out of the library and left to go home.


As soon as I walked into the house, dad slapped me to the ground and started to yell at me. He knew that I can't hear anything and that seemed to egg him on further. Tears rolled down my face as he stormed away, leaving me on the floor. I ran to my room and reached into my bag for the book I had gotten to find that I had another book besides the one I had checked out. Picking it up, I read the title and dropped it in shock. I gently picked it up and reread the title again and again. Soul Reactions and Monster History.

Souls react in many different ways to certain things, such as a change in weather, mood, physical reaction, and so on. My eyes widened, I had been waiting to read this book for years! It had come out when monsters had arrived on the surface. It had apparently been written by the human that saved the monsters, and I was determined to find out who saved them.

I spent about two hours reading the book and found no mention of the author's name. Finally, I closed the book and felt as if someone was watching me. I went downstairs to get dinner and saw dad sitting at the table with his chalkboard in front of him and mine at my seat. I went over and sat down as he began to write on the board.

^Serenity, we need to talk^ Oh goodie! Another 'talk'.

^About what papa?^ I write back. ^Did something happen?^

^Do you know about the new university that is supposed to be finished after you graduate?^ I nod to him and he erases his board to write something else. ^Would you like to go to that university?^

My eyes lit up like fireworks for the second time that day. ^Yes! I would love to go!^

^Alright, but I'm only letting you go because I don't need you freeloading anymore^ A frown spread across my face, I'm the freeloader?! I work two jobs every day and he works part-time twice each week!

^Yes papa, thank you^

^I'll drive you there after you get home from your final school day next week, alright?^

I nod enthusiastically. I get to go to university! How exciting! But then it dawned on me, isn't that a school for monsters and magic wielding humans?

^Papa, isn't that school for monsters and magic wielders?^

^Yes^ He left it at that. But I don't get it, why would he send me to a monster school?
