Chapter 7 - Mark of the Lances , Angel Serapth
" Welcome friends, now I shalt show you the vision of what happened 1,000 years ago" , Angel Serapth proclaimed and began chanting non profusely.
Raizer and Rocket Lee found themselves in another strange place. " Where are we now? " , Rocket Lee questioned. " We are at the battlefield of Gustav where the birth of the sword took place. Many wars were waged to get the Secret Sword. It is proclaimed the owner of the sword will rule over the world of Light for a thousand year before he died ." , Angel Florence explained as she flew in the air.
The battlefield of Gustav, it was well known that many legends, myths and fabrications of the Secret Sword was created due to the Great Wars era. The one who wield the Sword was grant an immortality of a thousand year and ruler of the Light. However , the Secret Sword disappear in the 700 years later , chaos erupted and warfare was common.That was why they were ordered by their King to search for the Sword and to rebuild peace and order in the world of Light again.
They were intrigued by the fact that the Secret Sword had been split apart and was destroyed totally. " Ah crap, we totally wasted our time , there is no hope and future for the world of Light",Raizer commented curtly.
" The sword was destroyed in the era, however this Secret Sword can be reborn again , all it needs is a true seeker with pure heart and sincerity , it will respond to the call of duty. Yet, it's counterpart has been awaken and wrecking havoc in the world." , Angel Florence replied.
" Why is there an evil counterpart of the Secret Sword, isn't there only 1 sword in the World of Light ? " , Rocket Lee asked.
" There is yin and there is yang, there is good and there is evil, there is day and there is night. One cannot demand one of the extreme. To balance the nature , a thing will have it's counterpart. However ,the darkness is spreading it's vines , lava are destroying the nature land, undead are rising and the Agglam are getting stronger and stronger each day,the light in the world is getting dimmer and dimmer. If the light dies ,the darkness will win the battle and the World of Light shalt suffer.”, Angel Florence answered.
"Why don't you Angels clear up the mess ?" , Raizer demanded . A surge of anger boiling in his skin , ready to explode and snap at the neck of the dastardly Angels.
" Calm, Calm , we Angels , the Lances cannot take the Secret Sword , Fate has agreed for the game to be play with the players ,we can only guide the players in the game and help them .Similarly , for the side of darkness ,the Devils are termed to the same conditions as us." , explained Angel Serapth.
Bring forth the guiding light , and end the wait
They found themselves back at the mountain, Angel Florence was with them. "Why don't you tell us more what should we do???Hey Angel , I have enough of this nonsense." Raizer raised his voice while sharping his kunais.
" There are 5 people , one of them is the true beholder of the sword .One will betray the party. One will fallen in Bjiou , the seven meets at Tea Leaf , whispers gather at night, behold of the one who hold scars." Angel Florence warned.
Angel Florence looked kindly at Raizer and said ," You seem to suffer a lot of pains , time will heal you and there will be some one who will heals your wounds."
Before Raizer can argue with Angel Florence , a strong wind swept them away and they landed in the Inn of Tea Leaf.
Chapter 8 - Tea Leaf - A place of Magic
Tea Leaf - The mark of the village houses come into play, herbs surround the houses and huts like decoration.Ravado found himself wandering around here after a cloaked figure guided him from the marketplace.
He was thinking to himself , " How are the others doing?" . Heaving a sigh , Ravado paused and looked up ,he was at the front of the Inn. He pushed the door and it creaks ,many faces turned and glanced
at him while returning back to their conversation. He saw an empty table at the corner and went over there.
" Young lad, what do you want here? A proper meal with a warm of rekel and baked ham costs you 10 copper coins while a lodging cost you 5 copper coins per day." , the shopkeeper asked.
" Give me a proper meal and lodging for the day." , answered Ravado as he figure his hands into the pouch of coins given by the stranger who met him before. He laid 15 copper coins to one of the waiter's waiting hand.
Meanwhile, Raizer and Rocket Lee was discussing on the next moves. They failed to recognize the Fate's game. "Let's go the Woolen Tavern , the best place to hear juicy rumors and gather information , somehow rumors of the Secret Sword has been spreading fast. We also need to restock our supplies and contact Gertel." , whispered Raizer. Rocket Lee nodded his head and prepare to move away.
It was then the door flew past and slammed into the wall , a few of the people exclaimed in alarm, " It's the Grangers , run" . The people started to flee and one of the orcs caught him , the villager cried and begged the Orc to stop but the Orc yanked him away.
" Listen you all , we want ale and baked ham .You !" ,the bigger Orc pointed at the shopkeeper.
" Ye....Yes..." , the shopkeeper said in a trembling voice.
The Grangers began to sit at the tables. When the ale came ,the Orcs( Grangers) laughed among themselves and mocked at the villagers and the other customers .
Rocket Lee lowered his hand , feeling for his weapon. A hand grabbed his , "STOP." , Raizer ordered and Rocket Lee reluctantly drop his hand.
Ravado who was watching the scenes felt anger seething him. He wanted to boil those Orcs into red steak in hot oven. Orcs...ravaging creatures which deserve no better to live, they must be dead. Only a dead Orc
is a good Orc. Orcs...
"Who are you whispering in my head?", Ravado asked.
"I have no true form, Hero, I am you and you are me, your awaken mind and power give me power
and similarly in return I give you back power that can rule the world. Go...Unleash your power."
"Hey you orcs bastards , get Lost! " , Ravado shouted before he could stop himself. The Orcs laughed and began taunting, "a puppy that bark and has no bite , go back to your doggy home."
"How Dare YOU ...", Ravado remarked. Azure Renkin FireBlast .
The Orcs were consumed by the ravaging fire and there was a binding light.
There were 2 Angels. Smiling . At .Him .
" Well done, Ravado , more is needed to done by the Hero." , Angel Florence said.
" You must control the powers of yours, the destiny of the World of Light lies in your hand. There will be people to guide you and don't fail us and the world." , Angel Serapth replied.
Raizer stated ," Well, an unexpected encounter, he may be interesting , maybe he may be the one to wield the sword ."
Rocket Lee commented , " You can't denied he looks fragile."
" Where ... am ... I ?" , Ravado said.
There was a grouching headache that was numbing him.
" You were so cool , you roasted the Grangers to BBQ meat " , said Rocket Lee cheerfully.
It appears that Ravado didn't remember everything.
Rekel: your normal kind of tea
wow so the angels are like a cheat code XD anyway who knew Ravado had that kind of power XD ^-^ nice chapters ^_^
No comment needed.
Chapter 9 - Mark of The Lances , Angel Sugintou
Juitoh- Bernard stated, "We ain't going to be stuck here , Let's go."
"No! " , cried Tablim. He may be still be here , You never know.
"Stop giving crap excuses , what an irresponsible person are you .You only want personal fame and glory but you don't want to work.Lazy bums like you should go into The Straven." , remarked Moriany.
The Straven is a well known place for lazy people and people who do not want to work, went there and have a good life. However , they become pigs in the process after a few years.
It is a legend that is pass down to the people. No one had saw a Straven person , maybe he has eaten a
baked ham that is part of the person.
" What a meanie, a noob geek," insulted Tablim.
" Save your trouble , I wouldn't bother myself with a Stravener ." ,
Moriany replied coolly. After all, she was acting like one throughout.
" Stop it , you both. Inaction is an act of wasting time. Rather, let us decide where we need to move ahead . Moriany , hand me the mapyou had drawn with your details. Shuri , checked our supplies , like how long can it last and what kinds of items we have right now." , Bernard. commanded
Moriany handled the map to Bernard. The map was well drawn exceptwith little sketches of details random flying. " There isn't much food left apart some coconuts , we only have a few surf boards, goggles and 2 rust stained knifes with us .", Shuri reported.
"This isn't looking good " , whined Tablim.
"Hmm ... the way is blocked by the boulders , we can only move over there" Bernard said as his moved his finger to another spot. Bernard asked Moriany , " What are the chances of survival there , if there is no encounter of bandits in the mountain ? "
" 1 and 0 , there is only between 1 and 0. Such is the fortitude if we risk
it ,we can get better food other than raw coconut and bbq fish." , Moriany replied.
" For your information . I ,Tablim will not be going there unless if has be proven Safe. "Tablim snapped , folded her arms and stormed away.
She was frustrated that she couldn't influence the people into being setting down here instead of moving forward .Yes , she wants better food yet she doesn't want to be part of the effort just want to be part of the glory like Moriany has pointed out earlier.
Bernard looked at her and said nothing. He realised that he should have not consider Tablim to be an essential team member at all .Now , he would change his impression of her . A loafer might be really better for her , in term.
After thinking a while , Bernard replied, " Since Tablim wished to stay, she should guard the supplier, we would be going on a detour to check out the terrains. Shuri will be our communicator if we happened to meet some people. I myself and Moriany will arm ourselves with the knifes . And also ,while at the mountain , let look for a cave as well . We will be gathering firewood as well. "
With that, having everyone agreed. They decided to move as planned.
At the foot of the mountain , Moriany noticed something strange.
"Look here , It's strange to see the footprints disappeared until here.There may be some kind of magic or tricks to this. We have to be extreme careful from now." , Moriany warned.
They started trekking the mountain.
Suddenly , a monkey crashed before them. It struggled before finally successfully getting it's head out of the soil. It glares at them before making angry-chattering and scuttering around.
"Should we follow it around ? " , Shuri asked.
" The monkey is a trap. We should not follow. " , Moriany said in a casual voice.
" Moriany is right. However, we should see where it goes as well. We need to move in the direction left or right but not follow completely. How the map is drawn now?" , said Bernard.
" Apart from a few blocked routes, we have found a cave , the routethe monkey fled is unexplored yet and the left path is filled with suspecting fruits which may be edible while the right path contain a
forest , a place for firewood and an abandoned house." Moriany replied.
"For now , Let's retreat. We will explore the route tomorrow. And It's our best interest that we move our valuables and supplies into the cave there, it's better and we do not need to worry about rain. " Bernard replied.
With that ,they managed to drag everything into the cave.
" Ahh, I'm so tired." , Tablim sighed.
" Look, a Stravener talking when all she did was cheering. And to talk about supporting us , once we need support , and she goes into the shadow .Well done , Stravener .Now ,Shut your trap.", sneered Moriany.
"Enough, If you have nothing to say then don't say. Moriany. And you Tablim, you should have put more commitment in these than coming up with crappy excuses." Bernard replied sternly and look at Tablim in the eye, Tablim looked away.
" Her personal commitments are TOO BIG for us , TOO BIG , leisure activities and enjoyment comes 1st before work, if nothing is in for her, she won't work . Go to Stavern , Staverner. " , jeered Moriany.
" Stop it , Moriany. This isn't the time to fight ." , Shuri said.
" I will stop in due to respect from Shuri ,Bernard and Ravado .But not to YOU. " ,mocked Moriany , before climbing into the cave and rest.
" You all should rest while i keep watch for the night. " , Bernard replied.
It was the night. Looking at the starry night , Bernard realized that what he must do to keep the team together was a daily struggle. Their objective of getting away from this World and back to their world was far. Most importantly , Ravado was missing.
" Ravado, if you were here , what will you do ", pondered Bernard before tiredness force his eyelids to shut.
"Welcome , Gatherers , there is something you all must do .
Time is not on our side. " ,a dark wing angel said.
"What is that ? " , Moriany wondered, scratching his head in disbelief.
" Who are you ? And what do our importance in this world ? " , Bernard questioned. It was no doubt strange things kept happening all over again .
" Names are not important , they are just names with
no significance . Angel Sugintou , if you must . " , replied the Angel .
" Now choose a symbol that you like most ." , the Angel ordered.
The Angel flipped open the book. There was many pictures and weird symbols. There was one to Bernard's liking , the character wields a sword and wear a plate armor. Shuri chose one that hold a staff with a pointed hat. Moriany choose the one that has a catapult and slingshot with him.
As for Tablim , it was to everyone surprise she choose a little man with a sack
"Now, Let me explain the meanings behind this. You are the part of the Seven who were recall from the other world dimension to aid the world of Light . What you have chosen will be your power . Knight . Mage . Sharpshooter and Thief . Each of these class have it's own advantages and disadvantages. Remember Unity is Strength .Once divided will fall. That is all for you today." , Angel Sugintou.
" Hey , why should we FOLLOW you? You are not truly an angel.
You have BLACK wings , you must be a fallen angel , or a Devil." , Tablim snorted.
" I apologized for Tablim's behavior. I Hope Angel Sugintou accept my apology and I will keep her in rein from now , please forgive the little one for the rudeness . " , Bernard said and bow his head.
Moriany quickly clasp his hand over Tablim's mouth.
" Father , Grant thee children the power sought to save the world of Light. I pray to thee." ,cried Angel Sugintou .With that ,a powerful tremor rocked the place while the explosion blinded them temporarily. Angel Sugintou was not there .What left was a pile of black feathers.
The party felt themselves glowing. "Amazing !" , cried Moriany.
There was a surge in power in their bodies. Time may ripen , waves may surge , trouble may awaken and hope may await them. In Light, in hope ,defeat the darkness that lies within the light.
Straverner: Person who stay in Straven for pleasure and no work life, in the process become a pig.
Lol, what you think of the Angels popping out? Entering cheat codes wouldn't get you an Angel in real life or fantasy. If I can pull Angels out , maybe i can pull something else .
And i give you my opinions what it means to be a writer.
A writer should write what he thinks and wish to convey into his writing. It's may sound illogical to
others but all is lost if the writer adhere to writing other people wishes. To a writer, what he believes
in and what he want to write , to unleash his urge of writing his own story.
I believe your meaning of writer may be different from mine. XD
All writers are mean to be different. If not ,same story then ...Boring
Thank you for the viewing and comment, Hope you enjoy reading
and keep writing your story too.
Chapter 10 - Fall of the Isis
The 3 Angels met again. Eons of years had passed and they have not met here until now. Years passed by with non major events. Yet ,the Agglam has grown powerful through the year , a little by little. Even though he was sealed by the hero Sora , for 10 eons.
The palace looked as though Angel Flonne had kept in neat conditions.
" Such sentiments are useless. Serapth , You should know that the history would happen again.Nevertheless, the efforts we put in before was gone in smoke, I think we should not interfere with the humans this time and let them save themselves from catastrophe.After all , Angels do not Interfere with the Rules of the Game."
"Sugintou , you should believe in the humans. Have faith in them, you will be surprise by their actions.
Love will prevail in the end."
" As if, They do not believe us, mere mortals. Their selfishness to Father Earth and Mother Sea is unspeakable. Furthermore ,the blight is created by themselves and cause the Blight Night."
" Such misfortune do occur , as Angels , we should guide them to
the holy light and save those that can be saved."
"Your effort is wasted, Angel Serapth. Had spending too much time in the SkyTower make you gone senile?"
" Such sully words , why don't you be nicer ? " Angel Florence asked in a chirpy voice as she twirled around.
"That is expected of Angel Sugintou." a voice boomed through the palace.
Angel Florence flew and hovered toward a figure.
"Father! What bring you here?" , enquired Angel Florence as she looked innocently at Father. He was the greatest Angel in Heaven , emitting a heavenly aura which making even the surrounding dance with the air around them.
"Let the meeting begin,"
"The chess pieces have gathered. The game begins long ago. Agglam ,has stirred in his wake and his servants has been hoarding people and taking territories , servants of darkness has increase in number. We must do something , Father ." , reported Angel Serapth.
" I suggested we stay out of this mess." , Angel Sugintou interrupted in quick succession.
" We cannot bend the rule of Game, as we speak , the darkness has spreaded and Isis is going to fall soon. Gragers and Undead has been spotted advancing toward Isis. The Devils are not keeping to part of their pact , and break the rule of the Game." , Angel Requiem.
" We must aid the humans, they are not strong enough to fight Agglam and his fiends."
, Angel Joseph proclaimed.
" They might beat us for the moment , but they will never beat us in long term. Remember ,there is a Seeker as well. She would pass judgment at the end of the Game. Rather , guiding the sevens along is what we can do and what we can do best. Sugintou , has you explain the power to the humans ? " , Father replied.
" I did what I was told to , give them power. If you want to test their character, give them power. I do not wish to help humans who had little faith in us, Angels." , Angel Sugintou replied and lowered her head.
" Sugintou , the fort at Meizen cannot be defeated. Guardian of Destroyer , Sugintou . I command thee to destroy the vile creatures infesting at Meizen. Flonne and Florence, guiding humans is your jobs. Serapth , your job is to investigate how the Agglam sudden rise to power , Joseph and Requiem , your job is to ensure that the Devils are toeing the line, if not , prevent them from attacking the humans . And I myself would seek an audience with Lucifer and Nemesis." Father said solemnly.
Juitoh - Meanwhile , the four of them woke up.
" Was that a dream , we ... met an Angel?" Shuri asked.
" Yes, it was...but how did our dreams connected ?" Moriany gave a puzzled look.
" Dreams , FAT HOPE , I bet it is kinda a stupid devil trying to fool us."
" There is a name. Angel Sugintou. You should treat people and angelswith respect . Such things are not nice , I wonder where did you pick up from?? "
Shuri wave her hand. Nothing come out. She closed her eyes and chanted the words, " az zi Spark " , small sparks flew out of her finger and dash towards the rock and split into small pieces.
Tablim tried and think but nothing came out. " Arrgh , this is totally crap. " , Tablim screeched in frustration ,
kicking an empty can to vent her anger.
"It's time that we must move ahead, let follow the monkey path and ...", Bernard said.
“Yeah, I agree.”
As they walked through the path , they saw smoke coming out. They found themselves out of the mountain, there were a lot of green herbs and tea leaves around. The butterflies were flying around .
“I believe we have reached the village outskirt”
Moriany was observing the village again with a binocular.
“There might be people we can depend on , furthermore, only Shuri had discovered her magic
while we still have not yet discover ours, Angel Sugintou mentioned about not having enough time.
What is that? ” , wondered Bernard.
“Bernard , look at this!” exclaimed Shuri excitedly, disrupt the train of thought of Bernard. In Shuri’s hand lies a ragged parchment , You will find the person you seek in a tavern but behold of the Scarred One.To journey through the Way, one must be comfortable with oneself and hold, peace and chant ,
magic is not everything.
“Magic…such things do not exist.” , Tablim scorned , her piercing laughter travelled all over the place. Moriany gave her a venomous look and started to open his mouth.
Shuri sensing that another fight was about to begin , broke in just in time to stop the bickering from starting.
“We must find Ravado , I can sense that he is near though I am unable to explain why.” Shuri proclaimed .
The team nodded their heads and started to embark on Tea Leaf.
Isis - The marching of the Undead began. There was no way that they could win.
Yes ,they will all die and join them. But this isn't about if you can't win , join them . They have lost half of their brothers and to have half of your brothers rise as undead , there is certainly ...
" Where are the Angels ? Why aren't they helping us ? " , wondered Captain Higgins.
"Captain , the wall is going to break! " , shouted a soldier.
" RETREAT , Sound the horns and evacuate everyone ", Captain Higgins ordered. The tooting of horns sounded the sky while the ravens flew in the air , waiting for the spoils of the war.
"Captain , Watch out!"
An undead jumped forward and sliced a whiff of his hair.
" This is dangerous , we might not even survive."
Higgins reached and grabbed the hilt of his sword. The Undead charged forward with bull-like strength knocking his down like a bowling pin. He was saved by his sword, with the undead looking at him hungrily and roared. Higgins swings his sword in dancing melody which only incensed the undead further.
Higgins retreated and tripped on a stone and fell.
" I'm going to die. Sorry I fail, everyone I. am a failure"
Amazingly, his hand found his sword blocking the wrenched undead from devouring him. The undead glanced at him . it's disgusting saliva dropping on his hand. He pushed the undead away, drawing strength , he plunged the sword into the heart of the undead.
The undead groaned before it came to a standstill. Sweats were all over his hands.
“Captain ,we can’t hold them much longer”, the soldier cried.
“ Higgins , there is no end to this. We awaited your orders.” Pichio shouted.
Pichio was a brave man . He defied orders certain time from Higgins just to do the right thing although he was being reprimanded for disobeying his superior. He was a hero despite being demoted to a soldier.
His men. They have fallen and Isis is soon going to fall. The men , his order could led them to live or die. They do not fear death nor dishonor and he had to make a decision. To defend a city which is going to fallen or retreat to Highland disobey his Lord’s orders.
“Retreat to Highland Cry” ,roared Captain Higgins as he hurried towards his horse. He jumped up and rode away. They suffered a heavy defeat , much pride and men were lost. If only the old fools were not bend on ordering them to defend until the last man. The studs came into contact with the horse and spurred it into galloping.
I hope I did the right thing
Raven Hanch - "The fun is going to start soon " , laughed Agglam as he watched the crystal ball.
" Yes , master , victory shalt be ours. ", crooned the assassin.
Zargus entered the hallway, swinging his katana and whistling.
“What brings the Agglam to summon me ? I could do with a rest.” Zargus said ,
his intensely bright orange eye glared at Agglam.
“Lest , we have similar interests, Wield of the Secret Sword , the Dark Holder. I believe I have something that would interest you.” Agglam replied , grinning and clapped his hands.
Zargus revered his footing and became more serious. His dark aura began to burn as servants of the Agglam began to retreat , however ,one of the unlucky one was caught and burnt to death with the dark flame.
Two servants appeared carrying a wooden trunk. The servants lifted open the trunk carefully,
there lies a parchment. With extreme carefulness, one of the servants approached Zargus
and presented the parchment to Zargus.
“What is this?”
“It is what you want, remember the deal , find the Secret Sword and destroyed
the curse seal that prevent me from wrecking havoc in the World Of Light.”
Agglam replied before cracking into fits of laughter.
Zargus grabbed the parchment and within a split second , he carved a vertical
pattern on the servant before executing the finishing move of slicing the head.
“That will be what you get if you betray me” , Zargus warned Agglam before walking off.
“ What a feisty little one, I anticipated the wait of my regime.Chaos .” Agglam laughed,
as his flapped his wings before making his way to his bed.
Skytower: A place where angels retreat in close comfort . A favorite place
for Angel Serapth as he always conduct research and watch humans as his interest.

Chapter 11 – The Nightmare Begins
Highland Cry- The darkness that shrouds round the star and covets the area as
it allows few of the stars to give it blissful blessing of light to the star-gathers. It was a blight.
And It was Night.
This occurrence happened in 1000 years ago. Many battles were fought and many men
sacrificed their lives against the evil forces and the World of Light was able to live
until today. The similar crisis appears and they were living in one.
Not withstanding, the knights were part of the people who protect the kingdom and
its people from harms. And yet…
Higgins covered his face with his hands.
“Capt Higgins, we have amassed the people to the retreat. We await your future
Higgins staggered before getting up.
“Good Soldier, tell the men to hide away. The place must look abandoned and
deserted. No civilian is allowed when night falls. Place curfew and hand out strict
The soldier saluted before moving away.
Higgins heaved a sigh of relief before dozing off to sleep.
Things had been happening. Ghouls .Undead. Dead Brothers. Devils. Where
are the Angels? Is the world going for destruction? and what is that Prophecy?
Pichio strode toward his captain. His captain was in shamble, to see so many of
his men fall and failure to do their duties as knights.
“Good day, Higgins, may we share a fine bottle of wine and drink to our hearts
content ? ” asked Pichio swinging a bottle of keg in his clad armored hand.
Higgins opened his eyes slightly and nodded his head. Pichio settled down silently,
as he gazed in the sky.
“Hey pal, what do you think of the night?”
“The night is kind and bright. I can see the stars. However, only the star of
destruction is shining brightly. I wonder what happened to others six.”
“The mark of Seven Lances? As in Love + Healing, Destruction, Hope, Knowledge,
Bravery, Justice and the True Guardian.”
“Man, I didn’t know that you are well verse in such legends, no one had seen
them or not sensing their validations.”
Higgins took a swig at the bottle. The wine tasted especially sweet somehow.
“Such as we need to do such as things … mock us of the honour. What do you think
of us knights unable to hold a fort on our own, lest save people of their misery?”
Pichio grabbed the bottle and drank a few sip before guffawing out in laughter.
“What do such men think of that? Why must we entertain such thoughts? Let us
be merry as we can.Fate hath chosen those in these positions because
they are instrumental for their roles. Fate decides what roles we play, we played
just for the roles, might we outplayed the roles well and earn our keep.”
Tea Leaf – The little village huts lined along the streets. It has been day since they
travelled in the open. This is where they should be.
Ravado…We have come …time to end… this journey
“Hey, we should get to an inn.”
Bernard turned around to see a weary eyed Tablim whining.
“As expected of a Straverner, And where are we suppose to get this world currency
when we all had were notes from our own world ?” ,Moriany asked.
“Good question here, I suppose we could discuss with the innkeeper for staying one night
with helping out there? I suppose we should try that out ?” , Shuri suggested.
As they walked, they approached an inn. It was designed with wool at the signboard ,
the Woolen Tavern.
"Welcome, we have been expecting you. Please use the backdoor of this hut.”, said the old man,
gesturing his finger toward a hut a few yard away.
“Wake up, we need to get to Woolen, yoho Ravado” ,Rocket Lee shouted , jostling
his arms around.
“ Get dressed quickly, I will be waiting for you at the door.”
Raizer made his way out of the room.
“ Ravado, you heard him.” Rocket Lee grinned.
Amazing. Such opposing contrast characters and yet they can work together as a group
Meizen – It was heavily barricaded. The castle at Meizen was littered with mangled
corpses outside. Ghouls and zombies at times were doing their monotonous groans.
There was a barren landscape. Much darkness hath consumed the lush green of Meizen,
what left was only a castle that on the brink of collapse after being sieged by forces of darkness.
It was a pathetic sign and upon seeing this, Angel Sugintou smiled for once.
There is something I must do
Angel Sugintou landed on a post and surveyed the surrounding. The disturbances hath
made the ghouls and zombies crawling towards her. Angel Sugintou began chanting and
unleashing a blade of thunder, wiping away the undead in sight.
“Clap,Clap ,Clap! There was a grand entrance by Angel Sugintou.” Lucifer flapped his wings
while clapping his hands in mocking fashions.
“Speak of the devil, Lucifer, is this the best you can do? “ , Angel Sugintou smirked as
she drew a lightning sword out of thin air.
“Sugintou, that was a just some side dishes. How about having the main course today?”
Lucifer answered and snapped his fingers. More undead appeared with his summons and
more bats, evil sprites and two giant beast wolf sprites appeared.
“Hmph, this looks interesting.”
“Let the dance of death began”
“And you shalt face the wrath of destruction.”
With a side swing, Sugintou sent a blast of lightning toward the ghouls.It dissipated and
reduced them to ashes.One of the wolf sprites lunged at her only for Sugintou to block it
with her sword in time.
“ I see, you have some problems with it.Shall I reduce the dishes for you?” Lucifer cracked
his laughter and smirked.
“ That would be disappointing.”
“How about this?”
Lucifer appeared on the right side and sliced toward Sugitou.
hoz rita blade
Another shining sword appear in her right hand and clashed her sword with Lucifer’s blade.
Wheeling away from the impact, Sugintou dived down and sent both her swords
toward Lucifer. Hoz sku ki blade
Lucifer blocked it with his blade at ease but the shining blade blinded him temporary
and travelled its course of action towards his heart.
“Arrgh” Lucifer screamed.
Lucifer sank and he floated and lies on the ground.
“Not so easy as it , Lucifer?”
Sugintou raised her shining sword and block the advancing movement of the blades.
“There was just an imitation you killed. As expected of Angel Sugintou. Guardian of
“The same to you , Devil Lucifer, conqueror of thousand kingdom.”
“ Shall we relive the old moment?”
“ Aren’t you angry about the memento I gave you last thousand years ago?”
“ There was a nice gift from you, Angel Sugintou”, Lucifer’s eyes sparked with
“ And I shalt return the gift with favours.”
Lucifer began to increase his speed, swinging his blades in twilight fashion , with
Sugintou parried his parting shots.
The two fought each other with such intensity that the sprites stood aside and watched them.
Blades went clashing each other and frequent clanking were heard.
The fight had begin and the night was blight.
Chapter 12 – The Ancient Test
It has come to world, the World Of Light was once again doom to face the incapacious
of certain fools that led it to the brink of destruction. That is where the Seventh matters,
to put a stop to such mockery of humans, the glory of hope lies within these Chosen
ones which will enlighten the world with blissful harmony along with tales of bravery and honours.
However, only some lives to tell the very struggle of their souls. Those lives
seldom seem sociable, hiding in shadow and fade to memories. For once , the people
live as if that was a dream ~~ The Prophecy
“Elder one, why do you choose to reveal to us this Prophecy?” asked Bernard, his
eyes twinkling out of curiosity.
“We believe you are the Chosen. The ones who will restore the World of Light stands
before us.” , The elder moved his staff forward and he staggered with each precarious
“Are you okay , elder?” Shuri gazed at fragile hands and helped
him to move toward a cupboard.
“Thank you, young one, I sense empathy and kindness in you. You would make a
good mage but there are time you must harden yourself for adversity.”
Shuri gave the elder an inquired look.
“Hahaha…remind me of the olden time.”
“ Such an old senile fool”. The thought contained in Tablim’s mind.
The elder gave Tablim a look. His cool penetrating stare seem to strip her
down to her backbone and a sudden chill of wind flew by.
Tablim hands were covered with sweat. How did he know what I was thinking?
“You may ask what do I have to do with you , do you want to know further the mark of
symbols that you chosen in your times?? Or would you like to pack your bags and
go home hanging your heads in shame with regrets of not being able to carry the burdens?”
“ Now Choose one option before we proceed further.” His cat which has been
prowling all around the elder's leg lets out a haughty yawn and gazes at them.
“ What are proofs that you do not work for other side, elder one ?” Moriany questioned,
his eyes lighted up , and somehow the moods become darker.
“ What say you ?” the elder replied.
“ We accept your order, now tell us the name of yours and what purpose do you and
we serve and how can we go back to our home – Kazrak?” Bernard stated.
“Very well, young ones, now your journey will begin. I am Ortho, The sage. Part of the
Prophecy speaks that it in my duty to train you in the arcane arts to ward the evil and seal
the sword Counterpart. The Secret Sword was once one piece and through the traitor hand,
it split into two. ExCalibur and Dein Nomos. ExCalibur is the sword of hope that embattlen
the world today and the mere mentioning of Dein Nomos strike fears in hearts of many.
The Seven best their counterparts and seal the Dein Nomos and darkness away for
a thousand year ago. You must heard of Sora. And know Dein Nomos is awaken and
the vines of evil spread like malicious fire of rumour.There is no time and we need
to train you in the fine arts of magic. However, you must certain tests.”
“ Name it, bring forth what in lies.” Bernard replied his arms folded. “ Any blocks will
be blown into pieces.”
“I admired the spirit of young ones.”
“ Come forth the ravaging wind, and blow as hard you could, would we
see them or would we not?”
“Let the test began.”
The gust of winds engulfed them and all Bernard could see was black.
“Where are we ?”
“Each of you have to fight your own darkness. I awaited you at the Trial of Azerburn.”
Ortho’s voice boomed in the depth of darkness.
Chapter 13- Hidden
“ Where are we ?” hissed Ravado. He narrowed his eyebrow and crossed
his legs. “What are we having here?... 2 strange guys and 1 old fool ?
“Ah ha ha , you have woke up.” exclaimed the lady. “Forgive me for being
a poor host.My name is Gertel , wielder of Secret Sword. Gertel walked
slowly prodding her stick scratching against the ground.
“Why do you wear a blindfold?”
“Fate has chosen me to be. It is a gift to feel people heart and hear
their heartbeats in return. What more can I ask? A mere reality of ills is an
indication of sign of trouble.
Ask not for what Fate has given you , but what you has given Fate.”
“Cut the crap and save us your sermon. We need the latest news. 2 questions.
What happened at Meizen and the news regarding movement of darkness that causes fear
in people’s eyes.” Raizer reached from his belt and threw the bag of coins on the table.
“Ahh… the price should be something worth of equal trade.”
Gertel’s lips twisted and smiled.
“Name your price, we are regular customers. Though it may be fitting for
us force it out of you if necessary.” Rocket Lee was sharpening his blade
and he whistled cheerfully.
“ Ah ha ha … time has not change you. You passed. However, I
fear that this young one here would require much training. With him in his
current state, there is no hope in defeating Zargus and Dein Nomos.
What is your name , Sword Wielder of ExCalibur?”
“Ah ha ha , such an interesting name. Now I understand why ExCalibur has chosen you,
but first you must understand yourself.”
“ Understand yourself?”
“ Aye, Ravado, didn’t you toasted 3 Grangers at the moment of impulse.
You must and will need to learn it if you are to save the World and yourself.”
“WHO THE HELL YOU ARE THINK YOU ARE? WHY SHOULD I EVEN CARE
ABOUT THIS WORLD OF LIGHT AND DARKNESS CRAP? FOR ONCE SUMMONING
ME TO THIS WORLD TO SAVE YOUR …” Ravado raised his voice and stood up.
Why should he listen? This world has mock him for all he cares and all he wishes
was to return home and here he was stuck with problems non of his concerns.
“ Fate has made it this way. Anger will not help you, in fact , it will hinder you and
made you regrets. Such is the path of destructive anger.”
Ravado lunged for Gertel madly.Rocket Lee was about to interfere when
Raizer put his hand on his shoulder.
Come lend me your power
Do you call… I grant you this sword.
There was a flash of light. Ravado appeared this time with a flaming sword ,
swinging his sword into the direction of Gertel. Gertel anticipating the move
was dodging effortlessly . She stood in the same position.
Ravado went jabbing at Gertel, Gertel sensing the movement parried .
Without another word , Gertel slammed the stick into Ravado’s hand
and the flaming sword roars to a stop. “No…how could I…”
Using the back of the stick, Gertel connected it to Ravado head.
“Enough is enough. Why are youngsters such blood-headed.?” sighed Gertel.
Darkness surround the light. Darkness entail curses the users of light and
gave them despair. But fear not, for every shadow of darkness that lies
the light of protection. Such is the choice which everyone has to take.
Bernard found himself in the abyss of darkness. He saw a sword plunge itself
deeply on the mud. With an increasing urge , he walked toward the sword with
a step a step closer to it. A sudden gust swept him off his feet. Bernard was slammed
against the rock, the sudden impact and “Crack”. Feeling numb, he mumbled to himself,
I will get the sword and I will. With each move , Bernard tiled his body and crawled using
his hand as support. The wind was howling and roaring with laughter. It’s gentle whispering
and slapping into his face.
“That must be the test that the elder set!”, Bernard thought.
With the thought spurring him on, Bernard feel the rush of adrenaline gushing
into his bloodstream, he crawled furiously and managed to cling on the handle of the sword.
“Well done, my name is Zaurich. O Courageous hath sought thee power .Is that not?”
“ Where are you?”
“Right in front of you , Brave Knave.”
A burst of light blinded Bernard temporarily causing him to shield his
eye from the wrath of the light.
“Hey, why are you my image?”
“ Oh , I hath been all along in you sleeping dormant for a long time.”
“here , take this sword and defeat me, do you want power ?” Zaurich threw a similar
sword to Bernard.
The sparkling handle !
Bernard realized something.
“I shalt explain in simple term. Basically, I am you and you are me. Defeat me to wield
my power or face me to destruct you. Now Choose.” Zaurich swang the sword aiming for
the heart of Bernard. On instinct , Bernard parried but was sent flying back.
“This is just the start.” Zaurich smiled. “ If you are to wield this power, you cannot
“ I know and I will beat the crap of you.” Bernard wiped the blood from his mouth.
Zaurich launched himself again, dancing in melody and toeing the music notes, making
the clothes of Bernard looking more ragged than before.
They parried again and this time Bernard do a whirlwind slash against Zaurich.
The sword vibrate before piercing into the wall behind them. However, the impact also
sent Bernard’s sword into the air. Zaurich aimed a kick at the neck of Bernard but was
blocked. Zaurich curved himself into a ball and spin himself in the air , grabbing the
sword and spinning . Bernard anticipated the move jumped aside, the cold metal
blade was on his throbbing sword.
Did I Lose?
“You did well , Brave Knave. Remember Power corrupt.
True power come from the Heart.” With that ,Zaurich transformed back to a sword.
“Use me well.For I am yours and these skills shalt be impart to you as well.”
Bernard felt calm and a strange sensation. It was kind yet powerful. He saw fuzzy
images before total darkness robbed him.
“ where am I?”. Moriany rubbed his forehead. He remembered the elder conjuring
a blackhole that sucked them into it.
A test. That was it. So what is the test ? A test of endurance? Or a test of wit?
Involving equations and strategies , it takes only minutes to solve them. A riddle like
In his hand was a letter, it reads. In time of trouble, what must you do? – To fight
- To die – To retreat – other.
“I choose other.” The letter glowered in light and sprinkled into dusts.
“Well done, now state your reason.”
Moriany saw an apparition of himself.
To do what must one do
“ What is knowledge and what is power?”
“ Knowledge is power and power is knowledge.”
“That is a cliché.”
The apparition flew towards Moriany and strike him in the chest. He felt chilled in his
heart and taste the bitter lemon taste on the tip on his tongue.
Remember this well.
“Knowledge is a kind of power but power is not knowledge itself. Power is a tool to rule
people and those who used to rule it well and wisely will reap its benefits.The same for vice versa .”
Shuri found herself walking along the middle path of the road. There was a noticeable
glow of light, upon walking closer, she realized that it was a light fairy. It was sparkling
with dazzling light and a warm sensation could be felt by people.
“Greetings, human, I am the light fairy ,Berry Rainbowglitter. I seek to help those who
helped themselves first. You wish to be a human mage, hence you must pass the
test of forbearance. I will accompany you.”
“Thank you, Fairy Rainbowglitter .” Shuri started to walk toward the path ahead , with
the house getting in sight with inch by inch. It was a tiresome journey, she was separated
with other to pass the test, most importantly to get back to their real world with Ravado.
With that goal in mind , she clenched her fists and brace herself in the upcoming nasty
narrow roads. Fairy Rainbowglitter looked at her and smiled.
Three front doors appeared in front of her. Shuri turned around and asked,
“Which one of the three doors should I choose?”
Fairy Rainbowglitter replied, “One of the test requirements is that you must enter
these three doors of uncertainties. One holds the past, one holds the current and
one holds the future. Look into it and tell me what lies inside is the doors are
important to you. I shalt be waiting.”
Shuri approached the left door. She saw the word ‘Past’ in spilt second before she found
herself in another strange world again. As she walked on , she saw a little squirrel
chewing on an acorn. On seeing Shuri , the squirrel threw the nut away and scampered up
a tree nearby for safety.
Walking further , the path spilt into a fork. There lies a sign which reads “ Yes” and a
sign which reads “No”. Upon clamouring for a long time , Shuri painstakingly chosen
the Yes path.
She continued her path, as if walking all the way to Wonderland. Suddenly ,
her face turned pale as she came to a standstill. She saw herself ,
Ravado and Bernard. The children were playing happily in the flower garden
in their home world, Kazrak.
Shuri watched the scenes in action. She recalled that when they were playing happily
while the sudden disaster strike and inflicted a scar on them emotionally.
Some big bullies towering them told them to get out, marking them as one of their territories.
Ravado at that time wouldn’t budge an inch while Bernard and Shuri were
madly trying to get Ravado out of the place to prevent them from incurring the wrath
of the bullies. Somehow, one of the bullies went mad with anger and hit Shuri.Shuri
was flung away and landed on the grass by the impact and was injured on the head.
Ravado rushed blindly at him but it was no surprised that he was beaten to a pulp.
As expected , Bernard did some nasty stuffs to the bullies which at that times
Ravado … Bernard … myself
“Little one , it’s time for the second door.”
Shuri looked around to see another door opened for her to enter.
Chapter 14 – The quarrel at Lisilsaya
Meizen – The clashes of the swords and claws brought the attention of the ghouls.
Wraiths, sprites were watching in glee for the action of battle.
“Why you!” Lucifer roared as Sugintou successfully strike him in the wing. The blade
gnawed at the feathers deliberately with precision that the muscles were screaming in
pain. Angel Sugintou murmured , Light éclatez. The wound which was inflicted by her
was responding and a burst of light consumed Lucifer.
What was there was not Lucifer but a group of bats. One of the bats screeched loudly
before the group of bats readied themselves for the launch to attack Angel Sugintou again.
Sugintou sliced and sliced with her swords but more kept coming. Sugintou carved
her way through the mist of bat only to found herself encased with bats with venomous sharp eyes.
The bats clipped onto her, binding themselves to her. Angel Sugintou found
her movement restricted and her sword was unable to continue its lust for more blood.
“ Don’t struggle. Stay there and be a good girl. I, Lucifer will help you in the place
of your father, Angel Zagzagiel to teach you some manners.” a voice boomed through
the darkened sky.
A shade of black appeared with many small bats gathered . The dark figure unveil himself,
it was Lucifer, fully recovered from his wound.
“ Here, have a taste of my hatred, Angel Sugintou.”
Lucifer warped in front of Sugintou , his claws sank into the her body.
Lucifer gave a loud scream and withdraw his claws. He licked his claws,
his malevolent red eyes glaring at Sugintou with unsealing fury.
“Till we meet again, I shalt kill you. I have business with Angel Zagzagiel,
your father and We shall have a fun time again. Today was exceptionally well.”
Lucifer created a darkness door which he walked into it.
Sugintou summoned her remaining strength, cast Heaven’s Wrath bringing
down the light which consumed the spectators ghouls, sprites and wraiths.
A swoosh of wings, Angel Sugintou turned around to see Angel Florence looking at her.
“Father told me to come here and heal your wounds.” Angel Florence smiled.
“Father, Where is he? I Must go to Him, I cannot allowed Him to face the Darkness
alone. Especially when there is Lucifer, trouble is spellbound to all.” Angel Sugintou
coughed as she struggled to rise up.
“Sugintou, you mustn’t go. Come to SkyTower, Angel Serapth has something
interesting to show us.” , Angel Florence said.
Sugintou glanced at the door which saw the last remnants of Lucifer’s appearance
before flying with her sister Florence.
Lisilsaya – Everyone was seated, however the most funny thing was that none of the
participants in the dialogue was talking to each other. They seemed to have something
to say but none of them want to say another.
In the middle of the table, there lies a man. He was no god and yet he has the more
calming demeanor. “Since all the players have gathered, we must or have to ensure
that all the rules are written and the records of the victor and defeated are entities to
their own price of success and failures.”
He smiled right at Angel Zagzagiel who saw through the hole in the coins
of their respective eye sockets.
Wawiolue cleared her throat before raising her voice to a screech, “I am the judge that
is impassive and decide who is the winner. However, concerns have been raised by
both sides that each side in running afoul to the laws. The seeker decide whether
the ExCalibur or Dein Nomos shalt rule the World of Light for another thousand year.”
Lucifer snapped, folded his wing and sneered, “What was Angel Sugintou doing at Meizen?
Ravado, the chosen one for ExCalibur should be on his own for in the quest
of defeating the objective. Instead, Angel Sugintou had interfered.
“Much as it was Lucifer’s work to summon the undead and wreck the cities apart.”
replied Angel Zagzagiel coolly.
“It is much agreeable that Zargus and Ravado should not directly received help from
Angels and the Devils. Much to my judgment, Lucifer you should stop your activities
before hath I choose the Light over Dark in flavor before the race ended.”
Murmurs from the Dark Side rose. Fate, the Immortal One spoke in hushed tone.
“Gentlemen, the Game was played with equal respect to the rules, rules that we agreed
beforehand and the rules are placed to have this festival of fun. Yet, Some Individuals
like to play the rule by their own hands. Should you incur the wrath of Fate the God.
Do not feel sorry for yourself for who will be sent to the black hole for a thousand year.
Let there be no more interrupts for this game, it will spoils the mood of joy.”
There were moments of exchanging glances with each other.
Don’t play with Fate, for Fate can make you regret for eternality
“I apologized for letting Lucifer playing too much, however you should keep
a tight rein on Angel Sugintou.” Nemesis gave a smirk and clapped his hands.
éclatez = explosion
ranimez ténèbres = revive darkness
Revpel = repel
Chapter 15 - Choices
The door flashed open as Shuri approached it. The quest to return back to their world
was not easy, they had to do something about the stability of this world before they could return to their world.
They are tied to this world by Fate, as predestined by the destiny. Now they must choose.
Choices to be made, consequences will be set by the actions they took, eyes are watching.
Such is the life of heroes
Shuri found herself in back in her world. There was a familiar figure
approaching her. It was Douglas Kirk.
“Young one, what are you idling around?” his blue eyes beaming with curiosity.
“I …” Shuri stammered.
“I smell fears about you, Shuri. You should let actions be done instead
of yammering around like an old fool!”
Shuri remained quiet as she recalled the incidence that changes the lives of Ravado,
Bernard and herself respectively.
“Let me tell you a story. Listen carefully and search for the answers yourself.”
“Thank you, Douglas.” Shuri replied.
“The Story name was Little Muppet.”
Muppets live in a place called the Trenchwood. As usual muppets are slaves to the human master.
Once being born, a Muppet is fate to chain to its master.
However, the arrival of Sorrel brought about hope and change to the everlasting tyranny
of the human and goblin era.
Sorrel was your usual normal Muppet with no special talents or abilities.
Muppets were about a quarter foot tall each. Such was the size that made them easily
bullied and cowered in their hides.
Sorrel was indignant when he first learns about the injustice the Muppet race has suffered and
endured for so long. He vowed to himself that he would live the duty of a soldier, to fight for his
race and broken the misery chains of slavery and despair.
One day, Sorrel reached the adulthood and was sent to a Master for work.
Trembling at the first sight of a human, Sorrel fainted and was the joke of the town.
He was mocked, disgraced and even ridiculed by his fellow mates. As his Master
was a blacksmith, he learn the trade of forging a weapon. The Master was kind to him as well,
teaching him the necessary swordplay skills.
The most prominent slave master came to their homeland for trading muppets again.
Having holding back and regrets with seeing of close friends and loved ones separated forever,
Sorrel came up with a plan.
The next night, he disguised himself as a servant, slipped in and gave the slave master
a trip to eternity. The next morning, Panic spread all over; it was the work of a Muppet.
Soon, people began to calm down. “Look, it’s time to exterminate them again.
Let strike fear into the heart of Muppets before they began to wave a sword at us.
The slaying of innocent Muppets started, Sorrel unable to resist the lure of his fiery temper
rushed in and thrust the short sword into the throat of the human who was slaying Muppets mercilessly.
Even though Sorrel was put down by the humans in the end but the damage was irreversible,
Muppets soon started an up rise bringing the end of slavery of their race.
Douglas smiled at Shuri, “I hope you found the answer you seek,
now pass through this door and look carefully at what your heart desire.”
Douglas stepped back, revealing a door in sight.
Ravado found himself landed on a pile of hay. He brushed himself off the hay and
found a gigantic spider looking at him with its saliva dropping off the ground.
Azure Renkin FireBlast
The flame he emitted from his finger torched the spider and roasted it to a crisp.
Panting, Ravado fell down and rest.
The shadow figure looked from the top, gave a smirk and disappeared.
“Welcome, Angels Sugintou and Florence. I am waiting your presence.” Angel Serapth.
“Leave at it.” Angel Sugintou said.
“We have found the emergence cause of the sudden increase of the undead. As players of both sides
are not allowed to intercede the game. We must teach them the fine arts of magic so the sword
of ExCalibur will win in the end.”
Angel Sugintou smirked, “the humans will never ever prevails.”
“Sister, you should have more faith in them.” Angel Flonne chipped in.
“Tell me why should I?” Angel Sugintou demanded.
“Because you are an Angel,” Angel Flonne replied cheerfully and gave Angel Sugintou an innocent look.
Highland Cry – The dead horde move on, advancing to the fort each day as time passed.
Captain Higgins was troubled by the fact,
“What should I do?” He wondered.
The enemies will break thorough the fort with their numbers. Our arrows are limited
and we have a few hundreds compared to thousands of undead. There must be
something we can do to hold them off.
Captain Higgins paced around the castle, he spotted Pichio.
“Soldier, call the generals to the meeting in the tent and be quick.”
“Yes,sir” Pichio scuffled to his feet and his made his way toward the generals’s gathering place for drinking.
“Attention! Generals, we need of every man to fight this battle. This will be the last stand
before the Kingdom collapsed. What we needs now is ideas on how to deal with these mangled
cursed dead man before they started to get rid of us.”
“There isn’t much we can do by sitting around, our supplies is running out soon. We
have only 5 days of ration left.” remarked General Stayner.
“ Line up archers against the fort and shoot at the undead. How is the catapults and stones
doing?” General Stifler.
“General Stifler, get 12 men gather up dry grass,twigs within the forests nearby. Also have
scouts to watch out for the incoming undead.”
“ General Stayner!”
“Have your men dig pitfall and cover with grass quickly. I want the holes to be as
deep as possible, trap those undead behind.
“General Naishtut, you will have a few burly men with you. I trust you to design
some offense weapons with the trees around. Our survival much depend on that.”
General Naishtut saluted before went off.
“ I have a task for you, General Rhys. You must by all cost contact the White Academy
for aiding us. Sent them news , do whatever it takes, get the priests here.”
