The Almost One


The wishing well is an ancient doorway to a world so old that human kind has forgotten that it exists. This is the story of a child kept physically restrained by an ancient evil magic, and held captive by a witch coven in the service of a dark and malignant evil. An evil that was sealed away from the Earth and the land of fairy long before humankind with its belching pollution took over the Earth, and caused the separation of their world, from the world of fairy.
The child has never aged throughout the years of her detention by the coven. Beneath the house in which her body is being held captive, is a prison vortex. A swirling black cage of ancient magic, which contains a single creature. A creature that is so despicable that it must forever be held in captivity. All that stands between it and freedom is the child; a child that time has come to know as The Almost One.
Long in the distant past when magic ruled the world, this child stepped forward to volunteer to become the guardian of the evil, throughout all time. As the years passed with little or no change, she relaxed slightly into her role, which was to prove to be a mistake, as it left her vulnerable to outside forces.
Hundreds of year before this adventure began, but thousands after the girl took up residence over the prisoner, the child became a captive and was herself imprisoned, by long dead members of the witch community. They hold her body captive, sealed within a house, located above the abyss she guards, but they do not control her spirit; to protect herself and contain the prisoner. The child deliberately separated her spirit from her captive body, Now that spirit stands guard over the entrance to the vortex, thwarting every attempt by the prisoner to break out of his containment. As the years pass, the evil gets stronger and more desperate, whilst the spirit form of the girl grows weaker because of her separation.
In the house above the vortex, unknown to any of the coven that reside there, the physical entity that is the Almost One, is slowly weakening. Should her body pass over into death, then the spirit must follow, and the entity contained will then be free once more to ravage the world and with no one remaining to restrain its rage.
The child needs assistance, she needs to be saved, so that she can continue to keep everyone safe from her prisoner. Knowing that she had instigated a plan, a plea to the outside world for help, her spirit reached out and selected two children in whom to place her trust. She had drawn them out of their own world, to face the challenge of saving and unifying her body and spirit in another world.
The two children, Jonathon (a teenager) and Emily (aged ten) must find their way to her, one must understand and then use the key she has provided to unify the spirit with the body.
To succeed the children must somehow discover a way to erase the coven's power over the guardian child's body. Either on their own Earth or in the land of Fairy, and then free the Child's spirit, allowing the unification, for the first time in centuries. Only then can the power of both joined be used to protect the lives of all, and ensure captivity for the evil and protection for the innocent.
There is much in the world of fairy that will threaten them, but also assistance and friendship await the children as they entered into a real adventure, and face real dangers, with horrendous consequences to them and mankind, if they fail to rescue the Almost One.
