It is said from long ago that the right personality will take you far in life. Thomas, a charismatic and caring doctor is on his way home from a long grueling day at work. While driving, he saw something in the middle of the road; he came to a screeching halt, and jumped out of his car only to see that he almost ran over a child. However, it was not a child it was a wizard.
The wizard has black curly hair that shined like mica, and his features were like a two-year-old child. His body is like a tower of lumpy pillows, and he stood twenty-four inches high. His name is Ezxeor. He is from a faraway land call Alma. Things are not going well for him in Alma, there is no obedience, no respect, and it is always chaotic. The magic just want work in Alma anymore.
Thomas is liked by everyone; he is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 130 pounds. He has auburn hair with brown eyes and a welcoming smile. Thomas has been married to Sherri for six years; they have two children, Mark and Anthony, and they are his top priority. Thomas stands out, he is like a magnet, he draws loving caring people into his world, and he holds on to them.
“ I am not what I appear to be,” said the little Ezxeor.
“What are you, who are you?” asked Thomas.
“I am the Ezxeor of Alma, I’ve come to strip you of your confidence,” replied the wizard.
“Well, why me?” asked Thomas.
“The reason I chose you Thomas is, you have too many good traits that are not practical in my world,” said the wizard.
“They are helpful here, “replied Thomas.
The wizard informed Thomas that the only way he could keep his traits would be for him to bring his family to Alma, and become his leader. Thomas declined, and in an instant, the wizard waved his magic wand and Thomas became a cow and all he could say at that moment was moo, moo. He rejected the wizard’s powers with all his charisma and charm, and the wizard’s command failed.
That made the wizard very angry. He started to pounce, and he was gasping for air, then he blew a powdery substance in Thomas’s face and Thomas started to sneeze uncontrollably. Each time Thomas sneezed, a branch came stumbling down off the trees. Soon all the trees on either side of Thomas were bare. He just could not stop sneezing.
The wizard took pleasure in watching Thomas sneeze. He jumped around, and skipped. After that, he danced a jig. However, Thomas was persistent; he was not giving in to the selfish wizard. Then, Thomas blew his nose, and everyone within three blocks felt a blast of air. It was as if a mighty wind relived him of his sneezing.
At that moment, the wizard offered Thomas all the treasures in Alma, and again Thomas turn him down. The wizard face was a flaming red and like a freight train, steam was coming out of his ears. Then he turned Thomas into a stone. Thomas felt confined and lowly. He thought he would never see his beautiful wife and kids again, so he gathered up all the strength he could muster, and out of the stone, he came. He jumped on top of the wizard, and he stayed there until it was nothing more than a napkin. Birds were walking about on the wizard and looking for food. Ezxeor was no more. Thankful ,Thomas hopped in his car and never looked back.
