I remember that time,
when nothing mattered in the whole universe;
not the heat... nor the pain
nor the people... down the tragic lane
Only us was what mattered
Only the two
In that small universe we lived
In that small universe was the truth
the lonely, yet...
absolutely beautiful truth.
I remember that time
when to us
but the fact that we existed
Oh, How I long for those distant warm...
... selfish days

Research [End of Act Two]Josh looked outside his window at the libraries on the world. He brought his feet up onto the windowsill and held up his sword. The design was intricate and only then did he notice the sulfurous runes that burned with a soft hum on the face of the blade. He placed it back into his strife deck and picked himself up. He had not noticed many imps since he got back to his house and did not hear any. Josh decided to test the hourglass more. He adjusted the choke point to a rapid stream and pulled the switch on the base. He felt nothing change, it was completely normal to him. He walked out the door and ran to the nearest library.Research [End of Act Two]7 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The only thing that made him notice the time-differentials was the fact that the sun did not move across the sky, it was locked in position just touching the horizon, and stayed just as such for several hours as he made his way to the library. He could see it in the distance coming closer and closer until he arrived. This was a fancier one than the othe
AwakeningHer heart aches as she sees the girl laying there. Looking at her empty eyes that are just staring. Staring at nothing. What happened to her? What did this eyes see? She seems so tiny and skinny, her purple hair looking so dull. Where is the rebellious spirit that once was in this eyes? The shine that made this long hair so beautiful? Where is the life that once was in this wonderful girl?Awakening2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"I told you, it may was not such an good idea for you to see her like that, Miss." The woman didn't notice that she trembles until the younger woman next to her speaks. They are standing in front of a nearly closed door, looking through a tiny gap at the room behind it.
"Since when is she like that?"
"Err... since we found her half dead a bit away from the village, about a month ago. During that time she barely ate or drink, didn't talk, too. Just Karou seems to notice us but seems like he isn't too friendly with us."
The bird now has a name. Now that everybody knows what he is. What the girl is. Ano

Look over your carefree sleep
The goddess will light up your tomorrow
She will carry you along
Take away your fears
Angels following your footsteps
Wiping away all this dreadful tears
So let me stay
By your side
With the moon
Let me lead you to sleep
The only thing that is left
Until we wake
My heart will always be here at your side, my dear
Holding you close for eternity
I will pray for you
I will always be protecting you
So dear, just go to sleep in peace now
Carrying no fears with you
In your sleep
Now the day is slowly dying
Stars are sparkling above
Now the birds
They stop to sing
All the trees, they stop to whisper
Just my song
Until the new day will be awaken again
Open your eyes to the shining sun
Where I will be here
Smiling brightly for just you
I always will be here

The days had passed way too fast for Leda's taste. Yet he couldn't deny that he felt relieved that in 2 hours, the ceremony would finally take place... After that, he'd take at least 2 months of vacation! First visiting Ifrit and his family on Midgard, then a bit of time in Asgard at his grandfather's house and maybe one or two weeks at Iska's home, the house of the Zerin-Vampires, getting attended all day long... Yeah, he really deserved that after the past few months...
He had enough of being the playball for the Kings of Utgard, or the Senate-members of Asgard... As soon as this was over someone else could take over his duties for a while!
Clinging on that thought, he moved his fingers over his back slowly. It still hurt him, more than ever even, but as soon as he'd get a good handful of rest, his wings would turn back to normal for sure!
It was weird... Lying on his bed in Menel's center, the Tower of Eternity, and staring up the high roof, watching t

Silence... Silence was his enemy has he tried to break back into life, but without getting through the thick coat that embraced him in this deadly silence, he fought in vain.
Was it like this to be dead? A restless soul that tried to break out of this shell? No, he couldn't believe this. His body was light. So much lighter than all over these past months. Was this really a prison that kept him? Locked away from the world? ... It wasn't but the darkness embracing him, spending him comfort and strength, but he knew it was time... Time to wake up again!
Light streamed into Leda's eyes as he tried to open them ever so carefully. His body still hurt, but it felt as if a giant weight had been lifted off him. As he blinked carefully, the blurry world around him started to take shape. The familiar wooden roof was enough to tell him where he was...
This was his room at his grandfather's smithy. Not a majestic chamber as he had in the palace of Galdor, or

Another one!" Nima shouted at Deamond who dodged a second arrow of one of the guards on the plaza. The people around them were panicking, rushing from the market-place in giant rows. It was hard to tell anymore who belonged to the guards or to the public With all the running people they had a hard time focusing on the Suuna-soldiers.
"Take that!" With a smack in the neck, Ledah knocked the archer out, nodding towards his companions while Kyrin guarded his back from an ax-fighter.
Fira was well-trained as well as they could tell from her way of fighting. She pushed 4 guards back with her spear while kicking a fifth one that had managed to get behind her.
"Fireball!" Chocolat kept flying circles above their heads, shooting at whoever was so unfortunate to get far away enough from her newly gained companions. Siegfried however was in such a fury, the others tried to prevent fighting close to him just in case he couldn't tell anymore who was friend or foe

Carefully leaning around the corner, Deamond scouted ahead. Looking right and left he assured the street was safe, so he waved the others to follow. Nima and Fira both remained closely behind him while Ledah and Kyrin kept an eye on their backs
Since the mess with the guards the previous day, the number of guards scouting through the streets had doubled However they concentrated on the main-streets rather than on the small alleys and hidden passages between the houses, so the group had given up on switching costumes, rather trying to avoid any guards.
The few unfortunate Suuna-Soldiers that happened to run into them were taken out quickly by Ledah and Kyrin while Deamond remained in the back They had him ordered to, much to his disliking
"!!" Deamond drew back his head as he scouted another couple of guards around a corner. Waving with his hand towards the right, the others tried hiding in a small side-street. Deamond took a step aside as well,

The morning-breeze was cool and refreshing. A soft cloak of mist surrounded the temple on the edge of the mountain. The tree in front of the entrance filled the air with the sweet scent of cherry-blossoms
Ledah sat on the ground, leaning on the stump, playing around with his Mana Even though he wasnt able to use his might as he did in Asgard or Utgard, this was much better than nothing. Just to stay in practice, he formed a couple of fireballs between his fingers, sending them in controlled rounds around his arm.
For the first time in weeks he finally felt as if he could rely on his own powers again, not depending on others.
His eyes drifted upwards towards a window above him. The young man he had met yesterday, a student of Gregor, eyed him with and envious glare. Micah was his name if he recalled correctly. Just for fun, Ledah formed a few flaring circles, making them rotate, so it looked like a burning rose. Hissing and scolding, Micah returned to

The sun was rising already when the small group finally arrived at the Inn. Tired and powerless they made their ways into their rooms. Raven and Narwa shared a bed so that Himikea and Nuramond could rest as well. Grenlin was in such a deep state of sleep that she didnt even notice the girls entering The boys stayed in their room, not talking a word. Zeyir just fell into his bed, sleeping immediately. Callo watched the young demon drifting off into slumber while he opened his shirt, throwing it and his jacket over a nearby chair. With shoes and trousers still on he let himself fall into his soft white bed, his golden hair falling loosely over the pillow and blanket. Allen chuckled and took off his boots, sitting down on a nearby chair. Even though he was tired from carrying Himikea he was still wide awake.

Hmmm Grenlin rolled around in her bed, enjoying the soft blankets and especially the sweet smell of fresh soap, coming from the bathroom in which Narwa was just taking a bath. It had been such a fabulous evening. The food had been great and the conversations were so funny. The only thing that she had to mentally slap herself for was her burst-out when she had realized about the goddess feelings towards their demon-companion What a strange couple indeed
A knock on the door made her snap back into reality.
Who is it? Her sleepy voice was a mere croak, she had laughed too much and too loud yesterday
Its Raven! A chirpy voice entered the room. The mercenary seemed to be in a rather good mood made her wonder what she and Allen had been talking about yesterday
Okay! Raven slammed the door open, bringing breakfast on a tablet into the girls room. It look

Oh and this is wonderful too! Raven held a long white dress in hands. Silver ornaments decorated the sleeveless top and a long silken scarf hang loosely down, almost floating in the soft breeze of the street. Look Narwa! Thisd suit you just perfectly!
Yes, its truly beautiful! The white goddess looked through the other robes of the store they were currently visiting. The elven town was filled with so many wonderful stores The girls could barely decide which one to visit next There were shops with brooches, flutes, weapons and Raven swore she had seen one for hair-extensions! Not that Narwa needed any
Grenlin followed the two girls, enjoying their lively behavior. She wasnt used to this kind of company. The dwarfs she used to travel with were rather harsh and strict most of the time. These women were full of life and just spread of energy!
Oh and this would match with you perfectly, Grenlin!&

Nya, I think Gnocchi is better.
No way! Then how about chicken with curry and pineapple?
And where are we going to take the indigents from? Callo interrupted the two humans discussion.
Riiiiight Lets check what we have first! Raven chuckled and took out their bags.
Aww I wanted to cook chicken with curry Allen sighed and joined her friend searching their bags for supplies.
Why are you so uhm Callo hesitated. He wasnt sure how well Allen felt by now It had been around two hours now since Narwa and Zeyir had reawakened the human summoner Why food?
First of all I havent had anything to eat since over three weeks by now And secondly, this is my way to thank Zeyir and Narwa. As soon as they are back awake, they will get a wonderful meal cooked by chef Allen! He grinned brightly and to

Nocturne She seemed to stare down at him with her cold, lifeless eyes Callo couldnt resist but to glare up at the spirit-statue every once in a while. The cold face-expression, the creepy eyes on her wings that reminded him of the shape of butterfly-wings, It was hard to resist looking up to her every once in a while. The darkness in the hall gave an additional weight to her appearance.
The dark elf took a look around. No other spirit-statue made him feel as uncomfortable as this one They all looked like young maidens. Some of them had horns like Luna, others demonic wings or fangs, but none of them seemed as unreal as Nocturne.
She is creepy, isnt she? A female voice suddenly came from Callos right side. He turned around, facing Narwa.
She used to be the mightiest warrior of the demons back in the Eternal War The goddess sighed and knelt down in front of her statue. Yet,

Huh? The white-haired woman looked up and noticed shocked that the mercenary was right! Oh no! She took it off and tried to get rid of the fire. Oh my such a shame it did not work as intended She sighed heavily and looked into her book. But it is supposed to be a flame-spell so I guess Im improving! A soft smile appeared on her lips.
Hehe, good for you! Raven grinned and leaned back a little more. She looked outside the window into the blank night. I wonder if Allen and the others already reached the Dark Chapel
Im certain they did. Zeyir is a demon. He should be able to guide them through the forest rather well. She blinked for a second, staring at her hat.

Allen and Callo stared at the giant entrance-door, awaiting the door to crush open with every single time their foes slashed against it.
I doubt it is going to hold much longer Allen sighed and leaned backwards against the statue of a former spirit of darkness. His gaze wandered off to Zeyir who was still concentrating his Mana. Guess we can only wait now
This is really bad Shade, Callos small spirit of darkness, protested, hands at her hips. How dare they damaging the Dark Chapel!? She grid her teeth angrily. I swear by Luna If they dare-
Its alright, Shade Callo, eyes closed, moved his fingers through his long hair, trying to relax a little. He needed to collect his senses if it came to a fight again

Thanks for your help, Raven. It is greatly appreciated. I will return the favor to you one day for sure. The other woman smiled gently. She wore a giant white witch-hood with rose-patterns on it. Her long silver-white hair swung freely around her back.
Raven smiled and whirled her long bangs around her finger. You are always so polite Honestly, sometimes I really think you are coming from a different world She laughed and entered their room.

Morning guys The elfs ears went up and down slowly.
Morning Zeyir turned from one side to another but whenever his leg touched the ground he felt the pain of the wound from his fall so he gave up and just stayed where he was. Where is Allen? The demon muttered into his arm he was using as pillow.
He went hunting about half an hour ago! Steel smiled and walked towards Zeyir, checking his leg. Your wounds heal fast! This is incredible He smiled from Zeyir to Shade. The darkness-spirit shot him a dangerous look and leaned against Callo. Steels mood sank again and he returned to their camp-fire.

And I doubt you will be able to keep up the seal long enough anyway Allen sighed frustrated

Nope, I doubt thatd work. Allen patted Callos shoulder. And we cant just leave him out here

Zeyir was already exhausted, Allen was close to collapsing and Callo had a hard time keeping up with Shades pace due to the numbness that slowly started spreading inside his right body-half.
