Tales of Conspiracy
Chapter 02: The journey begins
“Wow, I always thought I'd be weak... really... I never considered myself as a fighter... I guess I was wrong.. And it's the first time in my life that I'm happy to be wrong...“
The last chapter ended:
Leyla took out her short sword. “Okay, I'm ready to fight! I'm ready to revenge Ryuko!!!“
The woman started to laugh again. “You wanna defeat me?! What a laught. I am Mara, one of the five envoys of the great demon lord! You shall feel our infinite powers! DIE!“
“HA HA HA! DIE! Meteor storm!“ Mara shouted as she attacked Leyla, Judgement, Nyru and Tanner with hundreds of huge fireballs. Judgement used guardian to protect himself agains the meteors. So did Nyru. Tanner didn't, he suddenly started to shine in a glare light. “Wow!“ Leyla was imperessed as she noticed that the shining stuff were wings. “Leyla, don't get distracted! Look out!!!“ Nyru shouted. Leyla turned around and saw that a huge meteor was about to hit her. Leyla was like frozen, she didn't know what to do at all. She saw the meteor coming closer and thought: “This is the end..“ ..But then suddenly a shadow appeared in front of her and sliced the meteor into pieces. It disappeared as fast as it appeared. At this moment Mara stopped attacking for a while. “This is our chance! Let's use a unisons-attack! NOW!“ Judgement shouted. "Ok!“ Tanner replied "I'll start. Photon!“ Then Nyru attacked “Here we go, Anicent book of Magic:
Burning Phenix! Appear! Now you Leyla!“ “But I always mess up at this..“ “Just belive in yourslef you'll see it'll work..“ “O-okay.. I can do this.. I will revenge Ryuko! Take this! Air thrust!“ Leyla concentrated very hard. She knew she had to make this damned attack working.. everyone was counting on her.. and it did work, though it wasn't as strong as the attack normally should be.. but it worked. “Okay now me, Thunder blade!“ Judgement shouted. All four attacks hit Mara, and they seemed to work... at first.. “Was that really all? What a laugh...“ She stood right in front of them and didn't seemed to be hurt at all. “Hah! You wretched humans, who do you think you are? Did you really think your pathetic attacks could defeat me? ..ha ha ha.. AHAHA HA HA HA HA HAH!
...You! You're annoying me! You'll die first!“ She pointed at Judgement. “PREPARE TO DIE! GROUND DASHER!“ But at that moment, right when she started to cast the spell, the shadow from before apeared again and this time it sliced her and then landed on the ground. It was a girl sorounded by dark fog. Mara seemed to be shocked. “You again?! Why must you always get in my way?!“ Mara looked at her and then at the others. “Well, that's it for this time.. But I swear I'll come back.. This was not the last time you saw me! HAHA HA HA!“ And she dissapeart with a glaring flash of light. “What was that all about?“ Judgement wondered. “I think we should try to find out what's going on... Oh, and..“ he turned towards the girl “Thanks for helping us, that was really close.“ “Yeah, thanks. By the way, what's your name? I'm Leyla.“ “Hmpf..“ the girl said “There is no need for me to tell you my name, and I didnt ask for yours. If you would excuse me now.“ She turned around to leave, but stopped for a moment and said: “And stay out of my buissnes!“ then she went off. “Wow, that's what I call friendly.“ Tanner said. “Really???“ Leyla asked surprised. Judgement sighed “Leyla, that was sarcasm.“ “Hee hee hee!“ Nyru laughed. “W-well.. Whatever. We should try to find out what this woman called Mara wanted... And why does she look like me?“ “Perhaps she's your twin or something.“ “No, that can't be. She was much older than me.“ “Yeah, that's right...“ “So... now what?“ There was a long silence after Tanner said that. Finally Judgement said: “We should head for the Tower of Salvation. Maybe we could find something there that could help us...“
“Why the Tower of Salvation?“ Leyla asked. “Can't you remember the ancient Legend where the hero Lloyd Irving saved this world? He entered Derris Kharlan from the Tower of Salvation where he defeated Yggdrasill. That's the story. And the purple sky looks exactely like Derris Kharlan. No... It IS Derris Kharlan, I'm sure.“ “That's right. This is Derris Kharlan, no question about it.“ Tanner said. “So... we'll go there? Okay.. but I'll first head back to the village and get some stuff we could need on our journey.“ Leyla said. “Are you coming Nyru?“ “Yup.“ Nyru said, and the two girls rushed back to the village. “And you Tanner?“ Judgement asked “Will you come with us?“ “Well.. if you don't mind.“ Tanner replied. “It would be great.“ Judgement said. “Really, the girls would say that too.“ “Thanks.“ Tanner said “By the way, there's a small village called Ozisera near the Tower of Salvation. We should go there first. I guess we have to fight Mara again at the Tower of Salvation so we should spend the night at Ozisera and rest there.“ “That sounds like a good idea to me.“ Judgement agreed with Tanners surggestion, he heard about this village called Ozisera. In the old world it had another name, it was.. something like Ozette. But old world, old language. Judgement was one of the few last persons in the world that were able to understand the old language, but he never told anyone about his ability. By that time the two girls came back from the village. They carried some huge bags with them with lot's of stuff in it. “Hey! We're ready now! Let's go!“ Nyru shouted from far away. She was really excited because she could finally leave this village. She had not that much friends there. Most people didn't like her that much because they said that Book Magic is something like the Art of Black Magic. But that was not true. Leyla and Judgement knew that of course, they were her best friends. “Ancient book of Magic: Five Sylver Horses, apear!“ “Why five? We're only four.“ “The last one to carry the bags. Hi hi..“
“Okay then, let's go to Ozisera!“
???: “So they really think it is that easy, huh? Heh, fools! Those humans are so dump.“
Mara: “Yah, but we shouldn't underestimate them. They're not as weak as they seem.“
???: “Huh? But you told me that the only reason you couldn't defeat them was Dark.“
Mara: “Hm.. Dark.. yes, she's always getting in my way. I wonder what she wants..“
Mara: “Yes, they really were weak. But they will become very strong if we don't do anything. You know what will happen if they find out about their elemental powers, Wrath.“
Wrath: “Hmpf. Those weak humans are owners of sacred elements? Hah...
Well, I'll kill them before they'll find out, trust me.“
Mara: “..You know that I trust no one but myself.. But I still don't worry, there are three other demons if you fail. And we've still got our spy there.“
Wrath: “A spy? I thought you trust no one but yourself. Hm, anyway. That's not my buisness.
I'll leave now. There's still something I gotta do. I gotta kill some stupid humans.“
heh... you have no chance... Wrath, Demon of the West..
End: Chapter 02
