Let's Get Back to Work

First off, let me say that I have no idea what Reece and Jolie are talking about regarding Nikko and Cassie. I haven't noticed anything odd about the way she looks at him and talks about him.

But more importantly, Nikko is right. As the oldest of the three sisters - and probably the one most likely to someday have a boyfriend - I would hate to have them throwing out a bunch of gory details about my relationship on this site.

And besides, we've got work to do, and we need to get back to it. In case everyone's forgotten, we still have to find a way to end the threat posed by the Box of Death. And so far, it doesn't seem like anyone has figured out a way to do that yet. Oh yeah, and we still need to find that wild card Reece mentioned - you know, the next Wizard of Lightning. We could definitely use one more magical ally to help us stop Malo.

So, I think we need to stop musing about Nikko's love life and start looking for the new wizard. I'm sure that's not going to be an easy thing to do.

Why Is My Love Life on This Blog?

Can someone please explain to me how we went from discussing Dr. Bones, husk walkers, and golems to talking about my love life? And in what world does it seem okay to post all this stuff on our blog?

And just for the record, I like to cut loose and have fun. I just do it in a way more befitting me and my interests than ways that would seem appropriate to a bunch of teenage girls. I don't like going shopping at the Mall of America or dressing up in fancy dresses - neither of which should come as a surprise to anyone.

I have always been intrigued by magic, both the good and evil aspects of it. Even when I was a little boy, the concept of magic was interesting to me. Of course, I never thought that one day I'd be able to wield its power, and I had no idea just how powerful it was. So yes, I do enjoy learning more about it because I've always had a love for it.

And with regard to my love life, there are parts of my past that I have chosen not to share with the Three Wizards - or anyone else for that matter. They've never learned about that part of my past, and I'm sure they would be surprised to learn that I have fallen in love with a normal once since I became a wizard. It didn't go well, and I would just as soon not repeat that mistake.

So, I guess that means they don't have anything to worry about. They can talk about me falling in love, but the truth is that is not going to happen. I refuse to allow it. So, consider the issue closed.

This Just Keeps Getting Better and Better

Amid a potential battle with husk walkers, Dr. Bones, some golems, and the Wizard of Dead Magic, now Reece thinks she's stumbled upon a potential romance between Nikko and Cassie. I will admit, I think she might be right, though I don't think Nikko is all that ready to develop a romantic relationship. He's our Teacher and Protector, and he takes that job very seriously - sometimes a bit too seriously. And right now, I'd say he's worried about things to come in our battle over the Box of Death, and I don't think he's got much brain power left over to worry about starting a relationship.

I could be wrong, but I think I know Nikko pretty well by now. He spends his time focusing on the business at hand and doesn't spend much time or attention on the more fun things in life. I mean, we may be wizards, and our responsibility for protecting the natural world is a bit daunting sometimes, but we're still people. We still crave a bit of relaxation, fun, and even romance. Well, at least I do. I enjoy the moments where I can just be Jolie, the teenage girl, having fun with my sisters (but I haven't found any opportunity for that whole romance thing). Moments to just be me don't come around that often - especially lately - but when they do, I plan to enjoy them.

I don't know that I can say the same about Nikko. When we're off having fun, he's usually cloistered away in his room, reading something interesting about magic. Or, he might be off in the Hall of Wizards, learning more about some aspect of magic that intrigues him. There was this time a while back that we convinced him to go on a picnic with us, and that surprised me no end. Of course, first we had to battle the creature Reptillo at the Mall of America, but at least we had some downtime afterward.

And that picnic was the last time I really remember Nikko letting loose and enjoying himself. So, if you ask me, I don't think Nikko is quite ready to allow himself to become distracted by a woman. I'm not sure he even remembers how to be anything but a wizard.

Nikko and Cassie Sitting in a Tree

Ha, ha, ha! Guess what? I think there's going to be some budding romance going on within our camp! It seems that one of the Sentinels - a woman by the name of Cassie - may have become a bit enamored with my Teacher and Protector. I can't say for sure yet, so right now, I'm gonna keep an eye on those two and see what happens.

I know what you're thinking. "Hey Reece, why would you start such a silly rumor? We all know Nikko is much too engrossed in his role as Teacher and Protector. Besides, he's got that whole eye patch thing going. All he needs is a parrot on his shoulder and he could be Blackbeard or some other pirate."

But I'm telling you, I see how she looks at him, and I hear how she talks about him. She has a thing for him. I'm not sure why, but she does. It seems a bit weird, since Nikko has been more or less my surrogate dad since I became a wizard. Sure, he's a tough, really old dad, but he's all my sisters and I have. And we really would like to see him happy. I don't know how long it's been since he's allowed himself to get really close to someone in a romantic way, but I would imagine it's been quite a while (he is, after all, more than a hundred and fifty years old).

So, we'll see what happens. Maybe it will work out. Who knows? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
