Create my version of this story
Nike is a young black girl of 14 yers old that live in a world where 80% of people have magic and 20% do not have magic, she do not have magic and gets bully by teens from her school incluying her childhood friend Henry, but one day everything change when she find a book that inside contain the tarot cards with weird powers.
I was a nonmagical girl in a magical world.
When I was young, I didn’t know what it meant to be nonmagical.
I thought everyone was the same as me, until I went to school and found out that I was an anomaly.
I still remember the day when my teacher asked us to show our magic powers.
The other kids could do all sorts of things: make flowers bloom, turn stones into gold, and even fly in the air.
But no matter how hard I tried, nothing happened.
The teacher told me that I was nonmagical and that there was no place for me in this world.
I went home crying that day, but my mom comforted me and told me that it wasn’t a big deal.
She said that I could still live a normal life even without magic powers.
And she was right…until Henry came along.
Henry was my childhood friend who lived next door to me.
We used to play together every day when we were kids, but as we grew older, he became more and more distant from me.
I was so happy for him, but it also meant that we wouldn’t be able to see each other often anymore.
I still remember the day when he brought Sir Gregor, the most esteemed royal magician, to our house.
At first, I was so excited to meet him because I thought he would be a kind old man like my grandpa.
But he turned out to be a cold and aloof person who looked down on non-royal students like me.
He didn’t want to meet me at all, but Henry insisted, and I finally got to shake his hand.
It was a huge honor for me, even though he didn’t give me more than a passing glance.
But that was enough for Henry.
He was so happy that he almost flew into the clouds.
From that day on, Sir Gregor started to pay attention to Henry and help him with his magical studies.
He even accepted him as his apprentice, which was an incredible honor.
So, it wasn’t surprising when Henry became the top student in the academy.
I watched as he made magic potions, cast spells, and even tamed magical beasts with ease.
He was a natural magician, but it wasn’t enough for him.
He wanted to be the best of the best, so he worked even harder to prove himself.
Sir Gregor took notice of his hard work and gave him more opportunities to show off his skills.
Eventually, Henry became well-known in the magical world, and even the headmaster of Ivalice Academy invited him to join their ranks.
It was a dream come true for Henry because that had always been his goal.
As long as he could enter Ivalice Academy, he would become one of the most powerful magicians in the magic world.
He would have fame, wealth, and power at his fingertips, but none of that mattered to him.
All he wanted was to be recognized as a great magician.
I was really happy for him when I heard the news, but at the same time, I was also very sad.
I knew that once he entered Ivalice Academy, we wouldn’t see each other anymore.
We used to be inseparable when we were young, but that all changed once he became a student at the magic academy.
He no longer had time for me because he had so many things on his mind: studying magic, training himself physically, and making friends with his classmates.
We could only meet on weekends or holidays when he came home from school.
But even then, he didn’t have much time for me because he wanted to spend time with his family and do something fun for himself.
Despite this, I still believed in my heart that he would always remember me because we were best friends since childhood and we had made a promise to always support each other no matter what happened.

“Then why are you still hanging out with him if he doesn’t even have the same abilities as you do?”
A girl with long straight black hair looked at me in disdain with her arms crossed in front of her chest.
“Are you even friends with him?”
She was one of the magical teens who bullied me at school, but I didn’t want to get into a fight with her because it wouldn’t help anything at all.
So I just lowered my head and replied softly: “Yes, we are.”
Henry was always kind to me even when the other kids weren’t.
He never laughed at me or excluded me just because I was nonmagical or less talented than him.
He treated me like anyone else and never showed off his magic powers in front of me so as not to make me feel bad about myself.
No matter what happened, he always supported me from behind without any complaints or regrets over the years.
“Whatever.” The girl snorted in contempt as she turned around and left without giving me another look.
I watched her leave before turning back to look at Henry who was standing in front of the blackboard, working on his assignment seriously with a pen in his hand, his brows furrowed together in deep thought.
He had always been a diligent student who excelled in everything he did, whether it was magic or not, even though he had to put in more effort than the other magical teens around him who were born with a talent for magic from an early age.
I, on the other hand, was a nonmagical girl who couldn’t do anything special at all, but I didn’t feel inferior to him because of it.
When I was young, my father told me that everyone was born differently, but we all had our own strengths and weaknesses that made us unique in our own way.
Even if I wasn’t born with the ability to do magic like Henry, it didn’t mean that I couldn’t do anything good in life at all.
There were still many things that I could learn to do well if I put my mind to it and worked hard enough for it, just like my father did when he was young.
He wasn’t a great magician or scholar, but he was a talented carpenter who could create beautiful things out of wood with his own hands, such as tables, chairs, and even houses, which were very popular among the local villagers around our village where we lived as a family of three for generations since my great-grandfather’s time.

I used to come here often to wait for him so that we could walk to school together just like the old times, but it had been a while since we last did it because Sir Gregor had given him a lot of assignments lately to prepare him for the entrance exam at Ivalice Academy next week, which Henry spent most of his time at home working on them until late at night before going to bed so he was usually already gone by then.
I had prepared a special lunch for him today, hoping to relive some of our precious memories together just like the old times before he left for the academy next week so I was a little disappointed when I found out that he had already left without waiting for me today, but it was okay because we would still have plenty of chances to spend time together during the holidays when he came back home next time.
“I’ll be off now, Mrs.Smith.” I waved goodbye to Henry’s mother who was standing at the door as she watched me leave her house.
“Bye bye, Nike!Don’t forget to come back home during the holidays before you go back to school!Henry will be very happy to see you again!”
she shouted after me as I walked down the cobblestone path leading up to the white picket fence surrounding their old-fashioned house where Henry lived as a boy with his parents before they moved out of town to live in a bigger city several years ago when Henry was attending middle school so they rented this house out to him since then so that he could stay there by himself while he went to high school in a school nearby.

I sat on the wooden bench under a big oak tree in the front yard, watching the house as I waited for a few more minutes before I made my way to school all by myself without him, but soon, I saw Henry walking towards me with his luggage in tow so I quickly jumped to my feet and ran up to greet him, a big smile on my face as I heard his cold voice calling my name, “Henry!”
I ran up to him and helped him carry his suitcase as we walked to school together while I asked him, “Did you finish your homework?How did you do it?”

It was a lot, wasn’t it?”
he asked me as I nodded in agreement, “I’m surprised that you didn’t need to sleep for three days in a row to finish it.”
He chuckled at my comment and I noticed that the cold and serious expression that he had on his face most of the time had softened somewhat as he talked to me so I was glad that I hadn’t lost all my charm in his eyes yet.
He still looked pretty happy and carefree when we were alone together which wasn’t a huge change from the way he used to be before he went to study magic at the academy so I was glad that we were still friends even though a few months had passed since we last saw each other and we hadn’t talked much lately because he was too busy with his studies at the academy.
He was a little too busy to hang out with me like we used to but I understood how important his studies were to him so I didn’t want to bother him too much and distract him from his work, but I missed him so much that I couldn’t resist the opportunity to spend a few precious moments together with him today when I saw him returning home from the academy by himself so I called out to him before he went out on his own to meet Lila and her friends at the café for some drinks after we left his house.
I didn’t talk much when I was with Henry because I felt self-conscious and awkward when I was around him, but I was trying to make an effort to be more open and talkative with him so that we could be better friends in the future so I asked him, “Can I come along with you?”
He looked a little surprised that I wanted to join them, but he quickly regained his composure and said, “Sure, you can.”
I was touched by his kindness and immediately brightened up when I heard his response, “Thank you!”

I packed up my things and was about to walk away when Lila called out to me.
“Hey, wait up for a second!”
I stopped in my tracks and turned around to see Lila running over to me with her long black hair flowing behind her like a cape.
She gave me a radiant smile and I felt a pang of envy in my heart as she gave me an affectionate hug.
I remembered how Henry used to hug me like that all the time when we were kids and how his warm embrace would make me feel so happy and loved.
I missed those days when we were kids and all the things that we did together back then.
I just wished that things could go back to the way they used to be before, but deep down inside, I knew that nothing would ever be the same between us now that Henry had changed.
He was no longer the same person that I used to know and love, but part of me still clung on to the hope that maybe, just maybe, things could be different between us once again if I tried hard enough.
I hoped that by spending more time with Henry and Lila today, we could become better friends than we were in the past.
“Henry told me that you have no magic so it’s not really appropriate for you to hang out with us,” she said with a sly smile on her face.
I was taken aback by her sudden change in attitude towards me because she was so nice and sweet when she talked to me before so it was hard for me to believe that she was actually being mean on purpose.
I felt embarrassed when she said that right in front of Henry as if it were something that I should be ashamed of so I couldn’t look them in the eyes as I turned my face away from them in embarrassment.
She grabbed my hand and pulled me over to where they were standing before she introduced herself to me in an arrogant tone of voice as if she were actually doing me a huge favor by talking to me like that.
She was almost perfect in every way you could imagine so it was hard for me not to feel jealous or envious of her when we were standing so close to each other like this.
I could feel the sudden change in the atmosphere between us when Henry didn’t say anything after Lila made the comment about how inappropriate it was for a non-magical person like myself to hang out with them.
He looked a little embarrassed and awkward after Lila said that so I didn’t know how to respond either.
Lila gave me an insincere smile before she said in a very condescending tone of voice that felt like a slap to the face when it hit me, “You should leave him alone and find yourself another man who is more compatible with your non-magical status instead.”
She delivered the cruel remark with a smile on her face as if it were just a joke so it was hard for me not to feel humiliated after she said that right in front of Henry like this.
