Hi, I am mostly writing in the ST forum, But I wanted to try participate in this event.|
I am not really into writing stories (I like imagining different things more, than writing in a form of a storyâŠ), but I tried it anyway, Itâs a story about the skill trainer Angela (Since she would probably fit the mood of a storyâŠ)âŠ
*My naming is a little strange so donât mind itâŠThought the story itself is also a little strangeâŠ
A long time ago there was a small village by the name of Innelloa.
There lived two twins: A teenager boy by the name of Angelo and a teenager girl by the name of Angela.
Since the twinâs parents died from the hands of ogres, Angelo has trained to become a warrior, so he can join the Silverwing Order, to guard towns from the repeated attacks of ogres. Angela wanted to help her brother but she was not good with a cold weapon, so she learned magic from a few magic books that she found in her parentsâ old room. Things went good for both of them, until one day, she unthinkingly opened the âbox of PandoraââŠ
One sunny day in the forest of Innelloa:
âThere is a lot more of them then we thought!â, said a voice, âWe canât let them go to the city!!!â.
âI will freeze them with my ice magicâŠ!â, said another voice, âSo, we would have more time to defeat them!â. Suddenly a mini army of ogres run right from a brush right in over to the Innelloa village. After a second, words of magic were heard, Then ice flow right on the ogresâ feet, while freezing them in place. From the brushes run two twins: a teenaged boy and a teenaged girl.
âYour magic is quite helpful, sister!â, said Angelo.
âI tried my best to learn it!â, said Angela while looking on the freezed in place ogres, âThought, I wonder how long the spell would lastâŠâ.
âI would have to use some fast Aoe skills while you would use yoursâŠâ, Said Angelo, âI suppose we could finish them of before your spell waversâŠâ, he ended.
After that both of them used the most powerful aoes that they knew and so the ogres were finished of before they could even move one leg.
The twins were tired from using too much mana, so they walked home slowly. Suddenly Angela felt strange and stopped.
âWhat is wrong, sister?â, asked Angelo.
âItâs nothingâŠI just felt a strange aura around hereâŠâ, said Angela, âItâs probably just my imaginationâŠâ, she stood for a few seconds, âYou can go ahead of me, I will be going right after youâŠâ, Then Angelo went ahead.
âWhy do I suddenly have this strange feelingâŠ???â, wondered Angela while sighting. Suddenly a dark figure appeared out of nowhere carrying a dark book in itâs hands. The figure was surrounded by a strange dark aura. The dark figure went past Angela and mysteriously disappeared, dropping the book right on the road. Angela stood there surprised, not understanding what happened. âWho was that dark figureâŠ.???â, wondered Angela, âWas that even a humanâŠ.???â, she wondered more, âAnd this strange bookâŠ.â, she lifted the book from the ground and looked on it. It was a dark book, it also felt magical to Angela, but the book was also sealed. âThis must be a book of magic!â, thought Angela, âIt could have a lot of great spells for me to learnâŠ!â, she continued, âI could learn them and help my brotherâŠâ, she ended. Then without thinking twice she tried to open the book, to her surprise the seal disappeared right away.
âSister, are you comingâŠ???â, asked Angelo while going towards her as she opened the book.
Suddenly a strange magic circle appeared under her feet, and a strange spell was cast. The sky became full with dark clouds, the sun disappeared, and the circle itself became a barrier, and outside of it hurled fire and lighting. It was so big that for a minute nothing can be saw. But as it ended, Angela understood that she made a big mistake, a mistake she will forever regret. Everything around her was destroyed, everything was in ruins, and near her was ash. âBrotherâŠâŠ!â, she said in sorrow. Then she saw that itâs not all she did, strange dark auras appeared in different places and materialized into monsters, many of them and of different types. She thought that if she opens the book again, they would be absorbed inside of it, but the book completely disappeared. Then the monsters came right at her, to attack her. She fought them with her spells, but they hadnât worked much on them. So, before long she was surrounded, without a way to escape. She thought that itâs the end, that she would die there without a chance to redeem herself. Suddenly, there was a white light, and it materialized into a white-silver necklace in a shape of angel wings. âWhat is this?â, wondered Angela as she touched them. Suddenly the wings were magically putted on her, and as they did, she found a new power in herself. To this moment, she used the power of the elements, from now on she could also use the powers of light and darkness. She attacked the monsters with a light spell, and to her surprise, it was âsuper effectiveâ.
After a few minutes, all the monsters that surrounded her were dead. She wondered why she can use both elemental spells and light/darkness spells. âThat is for you are a being of half human and half elfâŠâ, echoed a voice in her head. She was surprised at first, but after thinking more about it, she understood that she shouldnât be surprised anymore. If there are questions she want answered, she would search for the answer herself, and with that she began her journey.
Somewhere in the woods:
ââSearch for the book of Dailleâ, they saidâŠâ, said a voice, ââItâs sealedâ they saidâŠâ, the voice continued, ââThe creatures of darkness are trapped inside of itâ, they saidâŠâ, it continued annoyingly, ââYou just need to get back the book, and your mission will be completedâ they saidâŠâ, The voice began to rage, âIf itâs like that, Why the **** am I attacked by an army of undead!!!!!!â, suddenly a few undead monsters got pushed back by fire. Then a teenage girl came running. She had black hair and red eyes, and was dressed in black robes. She also had a strange red emblem in the place where the heart is.
âOnce this mission is completed, I will kill those geezers from the Arcane council with my own two handsâŠ!!!!â, she yelled while attacking the monsters with spells. As she run, she saw Angela walking right before her.
âA member of the Silverwing orderâŠ.???â, she wondered, âOr a fellow Arcane cousin memberâŠ???â, she continued, then she snapped, âNever mind that! I still need help hereâŠâ, she continued, âHey you! Care to give a helping handâŠ???!â, she yelled to Angela.
âOkâŠ.â, said Angela in surprise.
After a few minutes, surrounded by monstersâ corpsesâŠ
âYou are not badâŠâ, said the black robed teenage girl, âSo, what faction are you from?â, she asked.
âFactionâŠ???â, wondered Angela, âI am not in a factionâŠâ, she ended.
âThatâs goodâŠâ, said the black robed teenage girl, âThe dudes from Silverwing order are really annoyingâŠâ, she continued, âI am called Flaimma!â, she continued, âSome say, that itâs because of my character...â, she said angrily, âThey say that I am like a burning fireâŠ!!!â.
âI am AngelaâŠâ, said Angela.
âThat is a name of a âgood girlââŠâ, annoyingly said Flaimma, then she suddenly felt weak, âIt seems like an injury from fighting those monstersâŠâ, she continued. Then Angela used a healing spell on her.
âYou can use elemental spells and healâŠ???â, wondered Flaimma then she looked on the necklace around Angelaâs neck, she was quiet for a few seconds, after that she became mad, âSo, you are the one that opened the book!!!â, she yelled, âMy sufferings are because of you!!!â. Angela shook her head and silently in a guilty voice, said sorry. Flaimma was surprised.
âNo one said âsorryâ to me beforeâŠ.â, said Flaimma, âBesides, You must join the Arcane council nowâŠâ, she continued, Angela was confused, âSilverwing order only accepts the âinnocentsâ and the âheroes of justiceâ in their faction, one mistake and you became an enemyâŠâ, she ended. âThought, there are also people there that donât regard us as an enemy, I know one person who is like thatâŠâ, she added, âI suppose I can meet with her on my way to my factionâŠâ, she added, âAnd you are coming with me!!!â, she said while pointing with a finger on Angela.
âWhyâŠ???â, wondered Angela. Flaimma became mad.
âFirst, you need to explain to my superiors what you did!â, said Flaimma, âSecond, since you are the one who is responsible for all this mess, you should accompany me!â, she continued, âThird, If I say you will travel with me, then you will travel with me!!!â, she continued, âGot it nowâŠ???â, she asked with a smile.
âYesâŠâ, said Angela while looking on Flaimma with a âSheâs really strangeâ face expression.
Somewhere on a valley near a beautiful river:
âSisterâŠ???â, wondered a teenage boy that was wearing a warrior clothes, âWhere had she gone againâŠ?â, he said with a sigh and went to search for his sister.
Somewhere inside the forest:
âWhat!!!â, yelled Flaimma, âDarkness itself gave you that book???!!!â.
âThat was darknessâŠ???â, wondered Angela.
âAccording to what you told me, yesâŠâ, said Flaimma, âBut itâs actions are really strange, it could have opened the book by itselfâŠ!â, she ended in a surprised voice.
After a while of walking(near 3 hoursâŠ)âŠ
âItâs strangeâŠâ, said Flaimma, âWe should have exited the forest alreadyâŠâ, she continued, âDid it somehow turn into a magical forest?â, she suddenly paused, âI think I did it againâŠâ,she ended while standing in place.
âWhatâŠ?â, wondered Angela while standing near Flaimma, âYou donât meanâŠ?â, she started asking.
âI got a bad sense of directionâŠâ, Said Flaimma, âI got lost againâŠâ, she continued. Then she saw that the trees became nearer to them even thought they hadnât moved for a few seconds, âWe have companyâŠ!â, she said while summoning an inferno, then she become annoyed, âEven the trees were turned to monsters!â, then she attacked a tree with magic. After that Flaimma and Angela fought the monster trees together. But, no matter how hard they fought those monsters, they seemed to increase more and more.
âIt was my last mana potion!!!â, yelled Flaimma, âWhy are they only keep coming???!!!â, she yelled.
âI also used all of the potions that I made from plantsâŠâ, said Angela while attacking a monster before her, âAnd, the tonics tooâŠâ, she continued while attacking a monster in the left of her. Each passing second the monster trees surrounded the party more and more.
âThis is annoying!!!â, said Flaimma as she punched and kicked the monsters (since she didnât had any mana left). Suddenly a few monsters were attacked by something and fall on the ground making a passage of monster corpses. Someone stood right before it. The figure looked like a bear.
âYou became dull, Flaimma!â, said a voice. Then the figure walked to Flaimma and Angela (while looking like a human).
âWhat are you doing here, Girrvve???!!!â, Wondered Flaimma.
âThatâs not something you should be saying to someone who just saved your lifeâŠâ, said Girrvve. He had brown hair and orange eyes, and was dressing in archer clothes while holding a bow. He also had a strange red emblem hanging from his bow. Flaimma got annoyed.
âYou hadnât saved our life, you just surprised those monsters!â, said Flaimma. Girrvve smiled and took something from his robes. It was three teleportation scrolls.
âHereâŠOne for each of usâŠâ, he annoyingly said while giving one scroll to Angela and one to Flaimma, âRemember to give me something for itâŠâ, he continued, after that, holding the scroll in his hand, and by saying âTeleportationâ teleported somewhere.
âHe hadnât changed at all!â, said Flaimma, âThe same smart-a** he was before!!!â, then she also teleported. Angela teleported after them.
To everyoneâs surprise they were still inside the forest.
âWhat teleporting scrolls were they?â, asked Flaimma.
âRandom portal scrollsâŠâ, answered Girrvve, âI thought they would workâŠâ, he sincerely said.
âI wonder what is worseâ, Thought Angela, âFlaimmaâs sence of direction or Girrvveâs ideasâŠâ.
âWhat are we going to do now?â, wondered Angela.
âDo not worry, For I, a messenger of love and justice, had come to your aid!â, suddenly said a voice.
âIt sounds like your friendâŠâ, said Girrvve to Flaimma, then both of them sighed.
âI know itâs you, Lienna!â, started Flaimma, âCome out here!!!â, she yelled. After that there was a sigh, and a figure jumped right from a tree(Yes, sheâs like Amelia from Slayers in a wayâŠlolâŠ). It was a teenager girl with blonde hair and blue eyes, wearing white robes, and a strange blue emblem right where the heart is.
âFlaimma, you ruined my entry speechâŠâ,said Lienna in a sad voice.
âSister!!!â, suddenly yelled a voice. Flaimma sighed.
âHe is also hereâŠâ, Flaimma said in an annoyed voice as the figure drew nearer. It was a teenager boy with blonde hair and blue eyes, wearing warrior clothes, with a strange blue emblem hanging from his sword.
âYou!!!â, he yelled while putting a finger on Flaimma, âWhat a creature of evil such as yourself doing to my sister???!â, he asked(kind of), âGet away or by my sword I shall judge you!â, he proudly said. Flaimma got annoyed.
âWhat did you just said???!!!â, She yelled.
Inside of a living room, in a big houseâŠ
âYou made such a messâŠâ, Said Lienna to Flaimma. Flaimma got annoyed.
âIt wasnât me who made this mess!!!â, she yelled, âI am in fact, the victim hereâŠâ, she continued in a sad voice. Girrvve laughed. Flaimma looked at him in annoyance.
âHello miss, My name is Lionneâ, suddenly said Liennaâs brother, âThe whole journey must have been really hard on youâŠâ, he sadly said, âEspecially traveling with that creature of darkness and destructionâŠâ, he said in a more sad voice. Flaimma became annoyed(like always).
âWhat did you just said???!!!â, Flaimma yelled at him.
âBut itâs not too far from the truth, FlaimmaâŠâ, said Lienna, âBack when we were together in the Silverwing order, you would occasionally make troubleâŠâ, she continued, âLike that time when you played with potions and turned everyone to flies, and that other time when you used a magic mirror and nearly burned the whole magic schoolâŠâ.
âReallyâŠ???â, wondered Angela.
âNow I get it...â, said Girrvve, âThatâs why you joined the Arcane council right in the middle of a missionâŠâ, he continued, âYou always make such a messâŠâ.
âMy poor sisterâŠâ, said Lionne while crying, âShe got into a very dangerous situations because of that cruel creatureâŠâ. Flaimma got annoyed and mad.
After a few weeks(since the story is already longer that I planned it to beâŠâsighââŠ)âŠ
The party of Angela, Flaimma, Girrvve, Lienna and Lionne stood right before a long bridge that went to a dark flying castle surrounded by dragons. The sky around the heroes(kind of) was grey, while the sun was red. The party began crossing the bridge, while hoping to be undetected by dragons.
âWhat are we here for, again?â, Asked Flaimma.
âWell, we got back to the Arcane council, they were surprised that we were with a half-human half-elf and two members of the Silverwing orderâŠâ, started Lienna, âThen a strange dark figure appeared, we confirmed that it was darknessâŠthe council began to blame Flaimma, she became madâŠâ, she continued, âDarkness attacked, somehow we survived even thought everything else was destroyedâŠâ, the she cried, âPoor innocents, to die like thatâŠâ.
âAnd then, we went on a quest to avenge them!!!â, said Lionne.
âActually, few of them survived, and asked to destroy darknessâŠâ, said Girrvve, âThey added that if we donât, it will swallow the whole world, only leaving death and destructionâŠâ, he continued, âThey promised to award us if we succedâŠâ, then he looked at Flaimma, âThere were those that suddenly became very determinate to goâŠâ. Flaimma got annoyed.
After a while, inside of the castle, in the throne roomâŠ
âSo, you finally came, mortals!â, suddenly said a voice.
âDarkness!!!â, the party said in one voice.
âYou are a very strange partyâŠâ, said the voice, âStrange indeedâŠâ.
âWhat are you driving at???!!!â, annoyingly asked Flaimma.
âYour party has a half-human half-elf who uses both mage and healer skills that is still uncertain by what she needs to doâŠA mage from the arcane order that has a really hot and neurotic personalityâŠAn archer, from the same faction that likes to be known as a âknow allââŠA healer from the Silverwing order that fights âFor love and justiceââŠHer brother, a warrior from the same faction, that dreams to drive every monster from the worldâŠâ, it smiled a little, âYou are really a very strange combinationâŠâ, it paused for 3 seconds, âAnd probably, the best combination of allâŠâ. The party was a little surprised.
âStop blubbering things I donât understand!!!â, Yelled Flaimma.
âWhatâŠ???â, wondered Angela.
âYeyâŠWe are a combination!â, said Lienna.
âI will surely destroy youâŠâ, said Lionne.
âInterestingâŠâ, said Girrve.
âYou donât have to think much about itâŠâ, said darkness, âFor I will kill you before you would be able to understand your power!!!â, then darkness attacked the party with a huge ball of darkness.
âYou all are parts of something biggerâŠâ, said another voice. Then a barrier of light appeared before the party, negating the attack. Then the party saw that it wasnât really a barrier, those were souls of the dead.
âBrother!!!â, said Angela as she saw her brother along with them.
âYou!!!â, yelled darkness.
âYes, itâs meâŠâ, said a voice. Suddenly a figure with light aura appeared near darkness, âLight, the other part of youâŠâ. The party was even more confused.
âHow did you come out???!â, wondered darkness, âI was in charge!!!â.
âWere you reallyâŠ???â, said light, âWe both were in charge, just your hold was strongerâŠâ, it continued, âNow, our hold is the sameâŠâ.
âWhat is going on hereâŠ???â, wondered Angela.
âYou know about Yin-Yang, donât youâŠ???â, asked light, âJust like that symbol states, Light and Darkness are always together everywhere, anytimeâŠâ, it continued, âOne lives together with the other and one also dies together with the otherâŠâ, it continued while looking on darkness, then it looked on Angela, âIt was me who dropped the book back then, the moment darkness got distractedâŠâ.
âIt was your voiceâŠ???â, wondered Angela.
âCertainlyâŠâ, said light.
âYou are boringâŠ.â, said darkness, âAnd your whole talk is boringâŠâ.
âAnd destroying everything is funny to you?â, asked light.
âDestroying, killing, hatingâŠâ, said darkness, âThose are really interestingâŠâ.
âYou creature of evil!â, yelled Lionne. Darkness attacked Lionne with a ball of darkness. Lionne got pushed back.
âYou are annoying, so just lye thereâŠâ, darkness said. Then suddenly, itâs dark aura grew. It became bigger and bigger every passing second.
âAngela, Use the necklace and fuse the two of us together, in the way we should beâŠâ, said light as she saw that darkness becomes bigger, âBefore darkness becomes big enough to absorb the worldâŠ!â, she ended (And, yes, it somehow turned into a black holeâŠ).
âWait, you said that all five of us are parts of something biggerâŠâ, wondered Angela.
âAnd, that necklace can fuse darkness and light togetherâŠâ,said Lienna.
âIf darkness is bigger that light, does it means that light will disappear if it gets fused with darknessâŠ?â, wondered Flaimma.
âIt seems that we have to fuse together, and somehow make darkness smallerâŠâ, said Girrvve.
âAll of us fusedâŠ.â, Said Lionne in a scared voice while standing on his feet, âTogether with the self destructing dark creatureâŠ?â, he continued. Flaimma looked at him annoyingly, âOk, if it will save the worldâŠâ.
âBut the one who uses the necklace would be sended to the futureâŠâ, said light.
The members of the party looked at each other, and made a choice: the world must be saved, even if the five of them wonât be together anymore. So, Angela used the necklace, the party shone in a white light and materialized into a figure of light.
âWe are the five starts of destiny!â, started Lionne, âChoossen by the gods to destroy evil!!!â.
âIn the name of love and justiceâŠâ, said Lienne.
âYou are annoying!!!â, said Flaimma.
âThey are so strangeâŠâ, said Girrvve.
âArenât all of us a little strangeâŠ???â, wondered Angela.
After that the party attack darkness, made it smaller, then âdefusedâ, and Angela became to fuse light and darkness together. As she completed the fusion the necklace disappeared and she was teleported to the future, 300 years after the time in which she meet everyone.
Angela was sad at first, but then she understood that everyone has something to do, her friends, that remained in the past are doing their best in fighting monsters(While doing to their best to not argue, make problems by mistake and not act sillyâŠ).
After that Angela decided to leave the fighting with monsters to the young generation, while she would be helping them in that. She opened a bookstore where she sold skill books that she made from her own magic, so that every inexperienced adventurer would be prepared for the long journey, be it a member of the Arcane council or the Silverwing order.
*I thought that players would write short stories, so I thought about writing a two part short storyâŠIt somehow became a four part short story thoughtâŠ
*I could have written a little more, but the story is strange enough already(It just somehow turned out this wayâŠ)+ If the story would actually get choosen (With âIfâ as the main word), I would only get a package, nothing moreâŠ
*Thought, it seems that everyone who didnât cheat gets a codeâŠ
*To everyone who is wondering, I wrote it in microsoft word document first(Thought,it took time...), and then pasted it here...After I finally ended the story somehow...
thank you so much for sharing us with such a splendid story.
the code has been sent.Please check Forum PM
