Daxelia has lived a good normal life, regardless of her living in a rather run down part of Fillydelphia. Although, she does have these bursts of magic when she's surprised. However, on her 5th birthday, her life goes spiraling down hill. She loses her parents, she gets foalnapped, she has to spend 2 months walking back home, she finds out that she has no home anymore, Her friend has left, and her only home is a fort that she made with her friend.
But even though her life has seemingly gone down the drain, it seems there is someone watching over her, making sure she has food and water. It seems that she has...a guardian angel.
