It was a warm summer day in Kansas, the sun baking the fields of wheat and grass, leaving the crops dry, their scent carrying for miles. A young girl, Dorothy Gale age 14, watched on as the clouds drifted lazily by. She had been orphaned, her mother and father being lost at sea during a cruise vacation, and in the year that she had lived with her Aunt and Uncle, she had grown a bit, having to become a farm hand, allowing her to build some muscle and callous, but inside she was still the same city girl she used to be. She had been reminiscing about her life, and how happy she was when her parents saw her Karate demonstration. Star Pupil, her sensei had called her. Now she wished more than anything to be with her parents, wherever they may be. She began humming a song when she heard a voice from below her. "Dorothy! Dorothy come down here!" It was her Aunt, Auntie Em as she called her. Dorothy quickly jumped off the roof which she had been laying on, and landed tumbling but coming up fine, while Auntie Em gasped. "Don't do that girl, you almost gave me a heart attack." Her aunt snapped at her. "I'm sorry Auntie Em." She replied. "Always with your head in the clouds Dorothy." Auntie Em said, "Help me bring in the laundry, the radio says it's supposed to rain." Dorothy began helping and says, "But it's so beautiful right now, how could it possibly rain looking like this?" Auntie Em shook her head, "You city folk." She says, "I love you Dorothy, and ever since the accident, your Uncle Henry and I are the only family you have left." Dorothy nodded understandingly. "But we love you like our own. That's why we're trying to teach you about this stuff. It could've saved Annie if she had remembered this kind of thing." She says. Dorothy nods again. "Yes auntie Em." She says. As the two put the laundry in the basket, Auntie Em says, "Thank you Dorothy. Now, make sure to keep your eye on Toto, Mrs. Gulch was trying to get the sheriff to come take him away if he got in her yard again, down the way." She says. "Oh, I better go then, I haven't seen him all day. He's probably over there right now." She says as she begins running, her auburn hair flowing in the wind, her running unhampered by the Overalls she was wearing. "Your uncle and I are going into town! We'll be back later! If the weather gets to bad, we might stay in town.if something happens, get in the shelter!" Auntie Em yelled to her before Dorothy was out of earshot.
As she approached Mrs. Gulch's farm, some 40 minutes away, Dorothy saw Toto, her little black terrier urinating in the flower bed of Mrs. Gulch's prized petunias. She called for Toto who began trotting towards her, proud of the mess he had made of Mrs.Gulch's Yard. As Dorothy picked up Toto, Mrs. Gulch stepped out of her house yelling and shaking her umbrella at Dorothy, who took off yelling "Sorry!" Unable to hear what was being yelled to her. As Dorothy ran, it began getting very dark, and rain began to pelt her, drenching her White Shirt and blue Overalls. As she ran she couldn't help but think that it had to be Mrs. Gulch's fault that the rain just started. As she reached the Farm House, the wind whipped up, and Thunder began crashing around them. Dorothy quickly grabbed Toto, and got into the storm cellar attached to the house. Suddenly, a loud whistling noise was heard as the house was ripped from the ground, sending it flying through the air, carried by the Tornado. She sat silently inside the cellar worried for her life and what had become of her Aunt and Uncle. The house stayed in the sky, the swaying back and forth in the winds lasted for what seemed like hours, before a sudden silence took hold. Dorothy then found herself, and the house, falling from the sky.
Meanwhile in Boq, a port town of the floating Continent of Ahz, the day was going on as normal, of course most of the people who live throughout Ahz have to worry when the Witches come, and in a few minutes the Wicked Witch of the East, Gingema. She is very particular about things being the way they should, including all statues facing the East, and everyone's favorite color having to be red. Despite her wickedness, she was also known as being a revered beauty, and more powerful than her sister, Elfiba. Here in Boq, most of the inhabitants were Munchkins, which Gingema loved because they made her feel incredibly tall. Which is why, unless they were golems, she wanted all inhabitants to stay under 5 feet tall, like her, though she tolerated the odd person here and there, knowing it wasn't there choice to grow that tall. The red brick roads around town clattered loudly as the many denizens of the town of all races went about there day. Soon, the witch would be there, and most natives knew that this would be bad if they weren't doing things in her style.
