Fountain of Hope: A Prophecy Fulfilled

The sun was fading in the west. Rory sat in the relative safety of the bushes, clutching his mother's locket, the only thing he had left of her. He knew he shouldn't have come this way. This road was patrolled by soldiers, more commonly know among the villagers as "Sweepers." If they didn't capture or kill him for crossing, Uncle Murph would certainly certainly kill him for his stupidity.
"I knew this was a bad idea," he said to himself. "Should have gone the long way, but NO I decided to take a shortcut...that was brilliant Rory, just brilliant."
Just as he was gathering his courage to abandon the the bushes and cross the road, a hand covered his mouth and another grasped his shoulder. Rory struggled against the strange hands that ensnared him.
"Shh! It's only me!" his uncle whispered fiercely.
"Murph! What are you doing here?And don't scare me like that, I think my heart stopped!"
" I could ask you the same question, but I won't. We must hurry back to the village.I came looking for you because something very important has happened."
"What? what is it? Tell me Uncle!"
"Two children emerged from the village fountain this afternoon, we believe they may be the children of the prophecy, I have invited them to stay in our home tonight."
"Well what are we standing here for?Lets go!" Rory threw this statement over his shoulder as he ran for the village where he and his Uncle lived
The first thing the boys noticed when their head breached the surface and they wiped the water from their eyes, was that they were standing in yet another fountain. In fact it was identical, except for the fact that the soldier in this fountain still had his head. Also this fountain seemed to be in a medieval village.
"It must be a medieval village," the boys thought, " these people are all dressed like they jumped straight out of a book." And then they noticed something even more unsettling.
"Uh, Salem" Nolan's voice shook as he spoke, " they're all looking at us."
"They're not just looking at us, the men are pulling out bows and staffs...I think now would be a good time to go back through the door" he answered hurriedly. They both dove back under the water. The door was gone! They searched for it until they could no longer hold their breath, until every inch of their lungs burned and pleaded for air. They broke the surface coughing and sputtering.
"Stop! Wait, don't kill them!" The crowd turned to see a wiry man nearing fifty years of age running toward them.
"Don't you understand who they are?They are the children of the prophecy!"
********Look it has a title now!********

Fountain of Hope: A Beginning

On a clear sunny summer day Salem and Nolan were running down the road that led to the fountain, pushing and shoving as brothers do, each trying to outrun the other.

A small explanation about the Fountain; it is the largest fountain I've ever heard of , five feet deep if it's an inch, perfect for swimming in. In the center of the Fountain was an old marble statue of a soldier on horseback. Salem and Nolan didn't know who the soldier was since his head had been knocked off long ago and there was no plaque displaying his name. With a great leap and a mighty yell the boys jumped into the fountain. There was swimming and splashing and the general horseplay you expect from young boys. In the midst of the play Salem went down to touch the bottom of the fountain and noticed something he'd never seen before. It was a door. He swam toward the door, Nolan followed with caution, curious about his brothers discovery. Salem opened the door and the boys stepped through. They were in a tunnel, Nolan looked back at the door shocked that the water had not followed them. He reached out to touch it and was shocked once again.
"It's stiff!" he said in amazement," like a huge wall of Jello!" Salem, on the other hand, was far more curious about what was in front of them rather than what was behind. The tunnel was rather short and he could see that there was yet another door at the other end. He grabbed Nolan's arm and pulled him along toward the other door.
" Where are we going?" Nolan shouted.
" To find out what's behind the other door, genius" Salem answered.
Salem reached for the handle and opened the door. Nolan stood as far back as he could but that wasn't very far considering Salem still had a tight grip on his arm.
"Oh look another wall of water, well that's very original isn't it?" Salem didn't answer him, he knew a hypothetical question when he heard one. Nolan started to turn, but Salem held him firmly in place.
"We're going in" he said.
" In there?" asked Nolan.
" Yes genius, in there" he replied and plunged through the door with Nolan in tow
