Chapter 7: Lone Wolf
Miles from civilization, Sid and Allie make camp at dusk. "So. . . bounty hunter? How did you decide on such a. . . lucrative career?" Sid asks, sharpening his dagger. ". . ." "Oh, come on. You stood up for me in front of those geezers who were going to hang me. Now, you're just going to ignore me? I saved your ass back there! Hell, if I am again. You suck." "Unlike most bounty hunters, I have morals, but that doesn't mean I want to be your friend. In fact, I really don't like you." "I have morals, too. Like I can't abandon a damsel in distress. If you were a dude, you'd be petfood for Satan's pet back there. Be thankful you were born wi

Chapter 6: Lost At Sea
In the ocean, the ship containing Drew, Sean, Ivanna and their captors floats slowly to its next destination. On the deck, Charlotte and Danielle look through the loot they stole from the island while the three would-be criminals sit, bound by ropes. Charlotte looks through all of Ivanna's clothes and finds lingerie. She looks at Ivanna. "Wow, ye like dressin' up fer yer boyfriends, don'cha?" Ivanna and Sean look at each other, and Ivanna squeals. "EW! With HIM?! God! Please, don't pluralize that! Drew's my boyfriend. That. . . thing is our lackey." Sean harrumps. "I'm their partner-in-crime. And she loves me. Don't let her fool you." I

Chapter 5: Bloodlust
A fight breaks out in the schoolyard of a school for skilled people. Several people with different abilities gather around to watch the battle. On one side is a young man with soft, blue eyes dressed in dark clothing. On the other side is a man with a monocle over one of his deep, sea-green eyes dressed in exotic clothing. In his hand, he holds a quarterstaff. Behind him, a young girl cheers him on. "COME ON ARAV! TRASH HIM!" Arav steps forward, and sneers. "I've been waiting to demonstrate my power for too long. And you're the perfect guinea pig." The dark young man stares at Arav blankly, and with a mono tone, he speaks. "Why do you wa

Chapter 4: Fear Of The Dark
"See you later, Dev." "You aren't riding the bus, Ellie?" "Nah, I'm going to walk home. It's nice out." "Okay. Well, see you tomorrow!" Devon gets on the bus and Ellie waves goodbye. As Ellie walks home, the weather gets colder. A sudden darkness is cast over her. She looks up towards the sky, and sees something covering the sun. "I don't recall there being a solar eclipse today. . ." She mutters to herself. It begins to grow darker, until it resembles night. Street lights come on, but flicker. Ellie gets scared, and runs quickly home. She finally makes it to her door, her pulse racing. She walks in to find the lights off. Not surprisin

Grueling War
The moon is veiled in clouds above me The time is twenty forty-three The general rouses us from our tents In his eyes is a maniacal glint We fall in line as per his orders In the distance, the sound of hailing mortars Despite the odds that predict our loss I'm forced to fight; I kiss my cross The sky simulates the hell beneath Lightning and rain crash down on the heath The air is thick with clouds of smoke My clothes are damp, my spirits are soaked Blood becomes all that I sense Mothers, children; such a harsh consequence My faith and resolve fade more with each death The chilling rattle after their last breath I don't know wh

Chapter 3: Vengeful Spirit
On the top of a steep castle, a figure's silhouette is cast over the moon. "Okay, Sebastian. You remember the plan?" "I do not think it is well thought-out. Many innocents may die." "Yeah, like you did. Don't forget who this is for." "Dralle, I do not want vengeance. I was given the curse of metaphysical existance because of my brutal history. I do not deserve such a quick release." "You were promised that if your killer perished, you would be able to rest in peace. There's no way he could have escaped from this area already. My guess from the wounds on your corpse, it was from a sword. Therefore, someone in this castle must have done it

Chapter 2: The Foxhunt
In a small village on the outskirts of a large forest, chaos and panic break out. "He stole our food!" "I saw him kick a child and steal his candy bar!" "He grabbed me when he ran by. . . tee hee." Later, in the village's town hall, a meeting is held. "This man is a nuisance. He has stolen half of our yearly supply of food. He's a hoodlum!" "Not to mention his sticky fingers tend to do more than pilfer our food." "I know what you mean. Ever since he came around, my wife has been wanting me to be more adventurous and sneaky. She wants me to act like a mugger!" ". . ." "I mean, LET'S CATCH THE THIEF!" ". . .Right. But it's not that si

Chapter 1: Troubled Waters
"Damnit!" On an island in the middle of the ocean, a couple sit on the beach, messing around. The woman dressed in a skimpy bathing suit, the man dressed in a business suit, and an eyepatch. "Oh, Drew. Oh. . . Drew!" The breathy, sensuous voice of the woman exclaims. "Excuse me, madam. Would you like a sex on the beach?" "Oooh. . . depends. . . how much?" "How about your-" "POTATOES!" The loud, bellowing voice roars as a huge, enraged figure approaches the amorous couple. "Sean, what the hell? Can't you see we're in the middle of something here?" "Well, Drew. I would be in the middle of something, had you not EATEN MY POTATOES! Thos

The Peahen And The Crow
A stoic, winged creature settles in the woods Its darkened plumage suggests that it is of no good Not a mean-spirited creature, but merely disturbed This is why it is brooding when it is observed Guiding others from harm, while neglecting itself Had taken its toll on the chrono crow's health Sinking further within its very being, it loses its sanity Losing all sense of judgement, morality and even vanity Loneliness and discontentment handicap his fight He finally goes against his will and does what isn't right Now unforgiven by himself, he broods amongst the trees "What happens to me now?" he thinks "I'm like a damned disease!"

Chapter 1: Final Day
. . .Rebecca was stricken with fear by the oncoming car, but her feet felt heavy, like they were bolted to the road. Screams unheard in the eerily silent night, she knew this was where it ended. But to her amazement, the car stopped just as quickly as it moved. But her feet still couldn't budge. The door of the car opened, and a figure stepped out. Veiled by the darkness, her heart began to beat out of control as the person approached. Unsure of their intentions, she began sobbing and pleading. "I. . . don't want to die, yet. There are so many people I love. And so many things I have yet to do. . ." The figure steps into the headlights of the

Chapter 2: Afterlife
Gazing into the dark, she becomes terrified. Turning back to the rain, she sees the same darkness sweeping over everything. As if devouring the landscape. The darkness enveloping her, her only thought is to scream. After doing so, she opens her eyes to see that everything has been covered in darkness. Except the mysterious trees with orbs of light rotating around them. Looking at the ground beneath her, she notices a small boy, who, despite the lack of light, appears as if he were in a perfectly lit room. "Miss? Why were you screaming? Are you new?" Rebecca bewilderedly shakes her head. "I don't know. Where am I? I was just at school, now, I'

Chapter 3: Reunion
Rebecca turns to Harold. "Uhm. . . Harold? Would you come with me? I won't ask anything else from you. As soon as you help me get to this guru, I will go jump in some water somewhere and get out of here. Hah. That sounds so weird. . . But I just don't want to go alone." Harold kneels before Rebecca. "It would be an honor. I will guard you, even if it means becoming a spirit tree." Rebecca chuckles. "Please get up. I'm not going to ask for you to give your life for me. I'd just feel better having someone with me." The little boy runs up to Rebecca and tugs at her shirt. "Miss? I'll go with you, too, if it's alright." Rebecca smiles warmly and

Chapter 4: Horrific Truths
Once off of the train, Harold points to a distant cottage. "That's where the guru is." Rebecca looks around, and notices a larger amount of spirit trees. "So. . . this area has seen its share of phantom massacres, eh?" Harold nods. "This was the first place Ledor struck when he came here. He's the cause of almost 80% of the spirit trees here. Not just this region. But this entire plane. He's powerful. And tends to go after new arrivals. So please be careful, Rebecca." Rebecca sighs. "Well, why didn't he go after my grandma?" "Because, like you, I was able to guard her until the train. As of yet, Ledor hasn't gone near the train. He's scared o

Chapter 5: The Battle Begins
Making their way back to the station, sorrow and relief intertwine through them. The mixture of feelings leaves them all at a loss for words. Finally arriving, they wait around silently for the train to pass around once again. Suddenly, all of the surroundings of the train station fade away and distant screams are heard. Harold turns to Rebecca and Sebastian. "Follow me!" Harold leads them back from where they just came from. Rebecca notices a change in the distance. "Where's the Guru's house? And what's that flicker of light over there?" Before Harold can answer, a shrouded man jumps from behind a tree. In a sinister, muffled voice, he begin

Chapter 6: Origins
During the walk, Harold begins to reminisce about his living days. Thinking about his childhood, and hearing of the princess' birth. It was that day that he swore he would grow up to become a guard. From that day on, he worked harder, did more than the chores he was assigned to, became more obediant and refused to do anything fun if it wasted time he could spend bettering himself. The moment he saw the innocent child being displayed to the people, a since of justice and honor was instilled in him. His parents raised him to be generous, caring and honest. But they hadn't expected in a million years their son would grow up to be a personal guar

Insight
Living in one place for many a year Makes us feel jaded and brings us to tears We curse our hometown, and pray to escape But despite our best efforts, we're caught by the nape Against our desires, we're forced to stay put And live out our days while stuck it a rut The harsh reality makes itself clear That we are never escaping from here Our own private hell that we loathe and detest The despicable place that gave us life, but not rest But on some days when the mood is just right We realize we're all just a little uptight For all of the bad our town has produced It's all of the good that gives us our boost The car rides, the part

Chapter 7: Confrontation
Standing outside of the stronghold, there is a colorful mist surrounding the large, metal building. A simple square block of what appears to be solid steal. The mist seems to be a form of pollution from the chemicals that Ledor had been mixing. Figuring the only way in is through the top, they attempt to float in. Rebecca being the only one who can float high enough to see into the building, but unable to move towards it. She begins to float back down when a familiar voice speaks from behind. "Must you give up before you try? I told you you should practice." Rebecca turns to see a disappointed Maurice. "What are you doing here?" "I figured Ha

Brightest Stars
Looking at the stars at night Picking out the brightest ones Emanating gorgeous light In total awe of distant suns In life, it seems, it's not the same The brightest stars impel no awe The dim ones that appear as plain Are the ones that have the fewest flaws The ones that shimmer tend to hide The darkest core beneath the glow The dimmest ones have naught applied But give themselves the time to grow Never acknowledged for the twinkle they lack Often ignored for their natural state The dim stars get darker and fade to black Such a sad one is the dim star's fate But one day, they will be thought of by all As the stars that shine

The Hand
The day that the hand came down from above Will be remembered for years to come Awakening the spirit of care and love It is considered the holiest day to some After hatred and greed had taken their toll The ultimate power had enough of the mess Everything that lives has a personal soul And no one should ever be treated as less Shading the sun with its incredible size The hand broke the sky striking fear into all The people gazed on with shock and surprise "Armageddon is here! Civilization will fall!" But rather than cause destruction as feared The hand simply scattered rays from its palm When the bright prism light had finally c
