I first read about Duskye's short stories. Then KingdomBlade posted his. And with Argentum Vir's Advice, I finally was able to write what i was thinking. but putting it in words than creating a world is harder since i'm not that fluent in english. Prologue(full) "Ah, it's good to be back home, don't you think?" "Yeah, I never thought we'd be able to come back here Tears. What we went through..." She paused for a moment and looked sad. "I never want to see that again." Suddenly, Teal cried. "Don't worry Teal, I'm right here for you. The village is just right in front of us." Motioning towards the village not far below the cliff they were standing. "Let's forget the past and start anew, as a couple." Teal wiping her tears. "You're right. Let's go home." Tears and Teal. The two Heroes of the peaceful Kingdom of Magrad. Which peace was disrupted for years by the Kingdom of Richebark. Stiggard, their hometown is a small village surrounded by mountains. Most people who live here are travelers since they are surrounded by mountains, they don't have tourists and other travelers, and without those, there will be nothing to connect them to the Capital City of Sauckte. The former Village Chief before they left to participate in the war, is Teal's mother, Lecrese. Now, Norbert, Tears' father, is the one leading the village. [/p]prologue is meant to be a bit misleading and foggy for future reasons. Chapter 1: Meeting in the Woods 5 hours before Tears and Teal's arrival, siblings Jethro and Jianne went to the forest to look for something they can give as a welcome gift for their cousin Tears. Jethro, 16, is the older of the two. Smart, humorous, responsible and good at cooking. He makes sure that his little sister is always safe. Jianne, 12, Jethro's little sister. A bit spoiled, bossy, but makes good decisions. It's been five years since they last seen their cousin Tears, so they want to make something special for him. Since Jethro can cook, they decided to cook. They were just about to pick up the last ingredient when they felt someone's presence. Instinctively, they hid themselves behind the tree, and lowered their presence, hoping that will not be discovered. But before they knew it, the one whose presence they felt was already in front of them. Surprised, the two of them sat there, unable to move. It's a spirit in a form of a kitten. Even though it's small, they heard stories about what spirits can do. However, it just looked at them with curiosity, then noticing that the two are afraid, it fled. "Do you think it'll come back anya?" "I hope not, but let's go, just in case." They stood up. Quickly, they went to pick up the mushrooms and ran towards the village. On the way, Jethro said "Let's not tell anyone else besides Tears about the spirit." "Why anya?" Jianne asked. "Because I felt something weird while it was looking at us." "Like it didn't feel hostile? You think we can tame it and form a pact?" Jianne replied. "That's why I said we're asking what Tears is going to say." Okay, but don't you think it's a little cute?" Smiling, she looked at Jethro. Jethro looked back with a serious face and said "That face won't work this time." "Hmph!" When they arrived at Tears' house, they went straight towards the kitchen. Only an hour left before Tears' and Teal supposedly arrives. They still haven't finished cooking when Tears and Teal came through the kitchen door. "I smell something good!" Jianne surprised when he heard Tears voice. "This was supposed to be a surprise!" "Haha, you're both still too young to be surprising us." Teal replied. "But we appreciate the effort." Tears said while patting Jianne's head. "Kuya Tears, we have something to talk about." Jethro wanting to discuss about earlier. "Something serious?" asked Tears. Jethro gave Jianne a look which means "You can tell him what happened while I finish cooking." and in an instant she got what he meant. "Okay anya. Tears, this is something we don't want to tell the others." She grabbed Tears and Teal's hand and dragged them both outside. Tears complained, "Wait! We haven't even tasted any food yet." "The hungrier you get, the tastier the food is!" Jianne reasoned. "Well, it's true." Teal added. When they were finally alone, Teal said "Okay can you tell what's your secret now? My Tears is getting famished." "We saw a spirit. It looks friendly and cute." Jianne answered. Tears and Teal looked at each other then back to Jianne. "When did this happen?" asked Tears. Jianne told both about the meeting earlier but there wasn't much to tell. "I'm glad you're both safe. It seems it just got lost or it's looking for something. But i'd like to see it myself first." Tears said. "But it does seem friendly, Tears and I will help you two in taming it." Teal added. "Really?" "Yeah but if we think you it's too much for you yet, we abort this mission." Teal said. "Okay, Let's go back Teal and Jianne, i'm really hungry." They went back to Tears' house. Jethro have already finished cooking and everything else was ready, and they started the celebration.[/p] Midnight Visit - something I removed because it goes against my goal. *sigh* i liked this part a bit. Silence, a deafening silence, was all that can be heard. The whole village's already asleep. But there's something that's still moving. It went from one house to another, looking for something. Finally it stopped by a window, checked first to see if the room's safe. With this, it went in and jumped over the person sleeping in the bed. A boy about the age of 16. Suddenly it stopped, there was something about that boy. It quickly regained it's composure and jumped over the person in the nearby bed. A young girl. It found it's target, it dropped the item beside the sleeping girl. It went back to the boy, looked at him carefully and bit his right shoulder and immediately fled.[/p] These are still drafts. But i have the plot already in my mind. The story will revolve around Jethro and Jianne, but Tears and Teal will play important roles in the story. Magrad is the Kingdom they live. I'll be making a quota of one draft chapter per week. Hopefully, this will be a good story.
