A thin, sallow faced man sat in one the more popular brothels, his purple robes shone brightly in the candle light, indicating the crest of the king. The treatement he was getting was clearly different than the average customers and his snobby attitutde indicated he expected it, after all he was a Royal Mage. He was the top of the elite.
He took a long sniff of a white powder and sat back, his eyes glazed, suddenly though a high pitched voice erupted his perverted hallucinations.
"Thief Thief Thief." a squeaky coice screamed. His magical robes were shrieking.
The Royal mage jerked up and saw a small kid racing away. He got up with an indigant huff, fell back on the cushions amongst others stoned persons, staggered back up and lurched after the boy.

He entered the busy street and saw the boy racing away. He dug in his pocket for his wand and found it, raising it gave it a flick.
The boy yelled as he was lifted in the air as binds erupted and wrapped around him, binding him with more power than neccessary cutting off his air.
he struggled as he zoomed towards the mage, who was watching him with a nasty look on his face. "You think you can steal from me, you piece of dirt." He said in his thin reedy voice.
The boy voilently shook his head and tried to talk but the binds tightened, making him gasp in pain but he was unable to emit a sound due to his lack of air.
"He'll die if you dont let him go." A voice said and The mage looked back to see a small thin man, staring at him.
"I believe thats none of your concern." The man said, his voice condenscending. He saw the robes and didnt recongnise them. Probably a rookie, who thinks he can challenge me. The man thought and swelled with righteous anger. "Back off before I make you pay." He said threateningly.

"Its better we don't get involved in this" Ganbrou whispered and looked at Avenths face, it was already hinting at a bit of anger
"I cant forgive someone who takes a child's life Ganbrou... I thought you would have known that by now" Aventh said back
"Ah, I know, but I was hoping to avoid conflict in a populated area" Ganbrou said
"Don't worry, ill end it fast" Aventh said handing Ganbrou his staff and stretching his hands walking forward a bit.

"No need to sound so threatening, but I will have you let go of that child" Aventh said to the mage, who was obviously cocky in his skill
"HA! what can you do?" the Mage shouted when all of a sudden the kids binds disappeared "what the!? who are you!" the mage shouted in frustration and anger as the kid fell to the ground unconscious
Aventh stood there, his hand raised and ready with another spell
"A mage, I thought that would be obvious" Aventh said with a grin the royal mage flew back crashing into a house, he stood back up only to see Aventh standing over him pointing a finger at him, his eyes widened.

He held his wand in front of him and waved, Aventh felt like something hard and heavy hit him on the chest and he doubled over in pain. The Mage jumped up, triumphantly, "Now I'll show you power."
****
The Royal Mages teleportated to the trouble sight as soon as they got the message.
"What is this?" A man with glasses thundered when he saw the nearly destroyed buildings. He huffed in a way that Aventh would have recognised and stomped around.
"Its Frrenze." The woman beside him said and the five mages ran to where one of their comrades lay slumped against a wall, his eyes totally glazed and a trickle of blood running down his nose.
"Hiya Kimmy...." He said in a slur. He looked completely disoriented and badly beaten.
"Its KIMMETH." The man with glasses snapped. "Help the man up." He said in disgust and the other mages wearing blue robes to indicate lower rank , rushed forward to obey.
"Frrenze is strong." Samantha remarked quietly as they watched purple robed man being lifted and carried away.
"Who did this to him?"
Posted 11/21/09 , edited 11/21/09
Aventh walked up to the mages who had come
"you should keep your mages on a leash, I taught him a lesson, but next time I wont go so easy on him" Aventh said shooting a glare at the purple robed man
Both Samantha and Kimmeth turned and saw Aventh. "You!!!" Kimmeth said astounded. "You were behind this?"
Samantha reached for her wand, "Attacking a royal mage is against the law." she said severely.
"Whoa, hold on there, I don't want to fight, I was just saying, you should keep your mages on a bit of a tighter leash, he was being very rude to the people down here, even if he is royalty he should at least set an example, or he shouldn't come down here at all" Aventh said while shrugging.
"Stop it." Kimmeth said and put a hand on his wife's arm, "Look around...' He whispered, "This guy is stronger than Ferrenze. We'd cause a lot more destruction if we fight."
For the first time Samantha took a look around and noticed the extent of damage, it would have exhausted weaker mages and Aventh didnt even look winded.
Both Kimmeth and Samantha looked at Aventh with new eyes then exchanged a significant look. "I think we should talk." Kmmeth said slowly.

Early the next morning....
"Parrrrkkeeerrrrr....." A high pitched shriek floated in through Parker's window.
Parker turned in his bed and snapped, "SHUT UP ANGIE."
"Commeee dowwwnnn."
"NO."
"...we have to show sensei around towwwn..."
Parker grumbled and turned in his bed, undecided for a minute whether to get up or not but he did want to show Sensei Aventh around town and he finally hopped out of bed and hurried to get dressed.
He came out a few minutes later, showered and dressed neatly in his pants, vest and tie, his hair neatly combed, though they tended to naturally spike much to Parker's displeasure and he raised a hand to flatten them down.
Aventh, Angie and Howie were standing waiting for him.
"So did you meet my parents?" He asked, pushing his glasses up his nose as he came upon Aventh. Even though he didnt try to show it, it was clear he looked nervous at hearing what Aventh had to say.
Posted 11/22/09
"It looks like" Aventh started to say, Parker held his breath, what his parents said to him flashed through his mind
"From what we have seen, you are very strong, so we shall grant you permission to train Parker, you should be happy about this, we only choose the best for our family!" Aventh laughed a bit thinking about the words, it dosent mater how they sounded, Aventh was just happy to have his student back, he looked at parker who was still holding his breath
"You are my student, ive been granted permission to teach you from your parents" Aventh said with a large smile

Parker exhaled and a rare smile, full of pleasure and delight, flashed across his face.
Howie and Angie were taken aback, they had never seen Parker look so happy.
Guess he really wanted to study with sensei. Howie thought as Angie lept forward and crushed Parker in a hug. "We can all study with Sensei." She said happily. "My parents allowed it and Howie's too."
Parker scowled and tried to push her away, but she was stronger and hugged him tighter, giggling.
Aventh said with a smile, "So what did you want to show me?"
"A festival."Angie said releasing Parker and he staggered back, cursing angrily. "It takes place at the end of month. We have different ones every month. Its the candle floating one tonight. But first the market and the shrines and the temples and the-
"Okay Okay." Aventh laughed and allowed himself to be led away by the kids. Parker leading the way importantly.

When darkness had fallen properly that night, Parker, Angie, Howie and Aventh were watching the procession of the candles floating through the darkness. Figures in black clothing and hooded cloaks stood to watch, a traditional sign of respect for the hovering candles. Even thieves did not dare to disrupt the cermony for fear of a year of bad luck. The candles and the proests went into the temple, and flames erupted in a big ring around it.

'Ok!' screamed Howie. It was time for the party.

Over to one side stood a man in black, but instead of looking like he was just in it forthe festival, he looked as if he was born for it. Pale skin, long dark hair and a certain reluctance to smile. He watched Aventh unwaveringly with unblinking eyes. If one looks at another hard enough, they eventually feel one's stare and turn, and certainly this seemed to be the case now. Aventh turned away from the kids and stared back. He detatched himself from their group for a moment, and came over.

'Why are you watching me?' he asked in a low voice.

'Because you are obviously not from around here.' At Aventh's beginnings of a protestion, he held up a hand. 'Let me finish. You are having such fun with them. How do you manage to keep them all together?' He indicated at the three. 'Even now, without your supervision, they are standing there waiting.'

'Who are you?'

'Me? I'm Haruki.'
Posted 11/23/09
Aventh looked the man over, he didn't seem to have any bad intentions... so what exactly was his reason for watching him
"So Haruki... besides wanting to know how I manage to keep the kids together... why else where you watching me?" Aventh asked

'You have power,' said Haruki simply. 'You have people who adore you. I want to watch that.'

'Why?'

'Because the person I adore has gone. Or rejected me for reasons I do not know. It's just nice to be able to watch people having fun.'

'Do you live here?' asked Aventh, changing the subject.

'Yes. Well. Second Ring.'

"SENSEI." Parker called out impatiently.
"Come on." Angie urged. "The fireworks are about to start."
Howie smiled excitedly.
Suddenly the sky lit up with fireworks and the three kids raced excitedly away towards the hill top where the view was the best , calling for Aventh to hurry up.
"Looks like they are not so patient after all." A twinkle came into Haruki's eyes. "Lets go watch the fireworks. It has a special meaning to us, tonight."
"How so?" Aventh asked as they walked after the kids.
Haruki spoke, "Humans seek good fortune from the Gods, we light up candles and pray but we can only ask so much from the gods. We have to strive for the rest ourselves." They stopped near the hill, which was packed with celebrating Mytlans, who were watching the fireworks, "The night can always be lit up with light, if we want to try hard enough." He spoke poetically, his eyes soft as he stared at the beautiful display of light across the night sky. "Unfortunately, the noise is a given' he said, wincing at a particularly loud bang.
Posted 11/23/09
The kids Aventh and there new... friend? watched the fireworks, all of a sudden Aventh felt a small tingle run up his spine and he stared into space for a second, Parker looked up at him and asked "Something wrong sensei?" this question brought a smile to Aventh's face, he was glad the kids had got to known him good enough to be able to tell when something is on his mind, he chuckled and responded with a head shake
"No nothing at all"
But back to the Small tingle that ran up his spine, he wondered what it was, it was obvious that someone invaded his small castle... but the presence was smaller than the children, he soon stopped thinking about it, it was probably just a wandering spirit or a forest animal bumping into the barrier, nothing that needed his attention, and so he went back to enjoying his time with the kids.

A young boy, carrying a huge backpack, made his way through the city of Remus. He had just arrived in there and didn't know where to go.
"I'm tired", he thought to himself, "I gotta find a place to rest but...." he checked his purse "I don't have much money now.... I should find a job..."
There should be plenty of jobs in that big city. But what should he do? Cleaning? Attending to people in a pub or restaurant? Maybe as a messanger..... Problem was, the city was a little too big for what he was used to.

Howie balanced the plates on his arm and reached in his pocket for the change. He paid the money and went slowly to where Aventh and his friends were sitting.
"Yo!" He said and handed the plates around. Suddenly he felt a bump and turned and saw a guy, gazing at the fireworks with fascination.
"Sorry." The guy said
"Watch where you're going!" Parker spoke up snobbily, not concerned with the fact that he hadnt even been the one who had gotten bumped. He glared at the new guy.
The guy looked a little panic stricken and Aventh spoke up, "Thats enough Parker."
Howie gave him a dreamy smile, "No problem." He said then noticed the bag pack. "Are you a traveller?"

The boy felt slightly nervous and he began to shake a little, but, Howie's smile calmed him down a little. He didn't know what to say though.
"Hum... yes... I am a traveller.... And..." he spoke to Parker who looked at him with some irritation "I'm really sorry... I didn't mean to be in the way... I just feel a little lost..." He bowed a little, apologizing.
"Hum... Just one more thing... Could you tell me if there are any job requests for now? I need some money to spend the night... but I don't know how to earn it..." He glanced at them shyly but with hopeful eyes.
