Magic and the Sword: Chapter 4I was brought to the dungeon beneath the castle of Lord Bernard's capital. Highlandever, there I was tortured for days, while being chained up in the middle of the room. Lord Bernard's fear of wizards was quite... over the top. He had two sets of chains on each of my arms. Gave me dry arm to prevent any ice or water magic. And when ever I was to be fed, they made sure to keep the guards around, while armed. After days of torture they threw me in a random cell, that's when Astrid and I ran into one another again.
"MUNDEL!" Astrid yelled as she held me. I couldn't move due to the pain. Bleeding, and barely conscious I heard Lady Cossette swear at the guards. "You heartless bastards! What did he ever do to deserve this?"
The guards spat at her and replied with, "He's a Maelstrom. And all of his kind are evil!"
"Not all of them are evil!"
One of the guards came up to the bars on the cell, "They're evil nonetheless! I'd kill you for speaking out in their defense, but I know he's control
Pokemon: Reluctant Traveler: Chapter 9Erika walked ahead of everyone, leaving the boys behind in confusion... mostly. Hale slouched over in depression. Waterfalls were coming down from his eyes as his friends, Cal, Roy, and Dracoon shrugged off the events earlier. Finally Roy slapped Hale on the back.
"Hey, it's not so bad man." Roy said in confidence.
Cal joined the conversation, "Yeah, at least you got a Pokemon out of it." He then points to Erika, "Lets see, you got a Charizard, a Koffing, and now a Pikachu. I don't see why she's pissed."
Hale got frustrated at that, "It had nothing to do with the Pikachu!" He got even more furious, "It had everything to do with you guys and your stupidity!"
Roy and Cal shrugged, "What did we do?" They asked in unison.
"What did you do?"! Hale shouted in anger, "Let's see..."
Just after the events in Saffron City, Hale and Erika kissed for the first time in front of their friends. As they continued their journey, Erika and Dracoon skipped ahead in merriment. Leaving Hale behind to d
Magic and the Sword: Chapter 3The fog grew more and more dense. Astrid was absolutely terrified. I heard her hands quivering in fear of these Dominions. For some reasons they didn't attack us. They just stood there, watching, waiting... studying. They wanted us to do something, and that's why I finally reacted.
"TAMORA!" I shouted my sister's name. "I know you're out here!" Still nothing, "A necromancer can only be fifty meters away from her creations!" Finally... another person emerged from the shades. "Tamora..." I murmured, and there she was... my sister; the blind seer.
She laughed and unsheathed her two scimitars. "Mundel, I didn't expect to see you here."
I pointed at her with my staff, "I suspect you're not seeing much of anything these days."
"A blind joke, how fitting. I guess you know how to do that RIGHT." She laughed, and then Tamora's attention was brought to Astrid. "I see, you're with someone else. That's not like you, Mundel."
Lady Cossette came to my side, "You know this woman, Maelstrom?"
Pokemon: Reluctant Traveler: Chapter 8Dracoon nodded his head and closed his eyes as Hale explained what happened in his dream. Hearing about the nightmare made the Charizard a bit anxious. With that in mind the other dragon-typed Pokemon began to surround them. None of them looked to be a in very friendly mood.
"Dracoon!" The Charizard in the black skin demanded, "What are you doing with a human?"
Dracoon shrugged, "This is a dream, I'll do what I want."
That made the black Charizard angry, "NO YOU WILL NOT!" He then blasted a fireball from his breath.
Standing still with his talon out, Dracoon blocked the attack and scuffed. "This is my dream, and in my dream you are powerless." That's when the black Charizard fell to his knees. Suddenly he felt like he had no strength. He was at the mercy of Dracoon. "See?" Dracoon started, "dream world... and thus I am a god."
Sabrina's voice could be heard from the skies, "Then I must be THE god!" She appeared in a bolt of lightning and pointed at Dracoon, "Now begone with you!"
Pokemon: Reluctant Traveler: Chapter 7The gang, with a mysterious new friend named Cal, entered the Saffron City gym. There they met the recently returned female gym leader named, Sabrina. It is rumored that she is a psychic. She sat in a chair that looked like a throne, and with her Alakazam at her side, she didn't seem like someone to be taken lightly.
"Who enters my gym?" Sabrina demanded to know as she pats the head of her Alakazam.
Hale stepped forward, "I wish to challenge the leader of this gym. That's you, isn't it?"
Sabrina raised an eyebrow, "Yes, it is." She then stood up and walked towards Hale. Cupping his face in her hands, she inspected him. "Interesting."
Moving back, Hale brought out a Poke-ball. "I'm here for a battle... not for my face to caressed!"
The Saffron City gym leader took her place on the field, "Fine, but you only have two Pokemon. I have four, how do you expect to beat those odds?"
"I think it's fair." Hale said as he unleashed Koffing. "Ready to show me your stuff?"
His new poison-typed
Magic and the Sword: Chapter 2The entire tavern watched Mundel, and the people were in awe. Finally the wizard took a cup of ale and drank it. He then continued his story.
"I woke up that morning with a surprising metal tip to my forehead..."
The little girl untied Lady Cossette, I knew I should've gotten rid of her weapons. I guess overconfidence is everyone's worst enemy. She kicked my back to wake me up, and pointed the tip of her blade at my throat.
"Wake up!" Astrid demanded. I complied as I stood slowly. "You're taking me back to my fellows."
That made me laugh, "I'll sooner die by your hands than to allow myself to be hanged by Lord Bernard's."
She grabbed her weapon with both hands, "Then so be it!" But she was too hesitant, before she swung I grabbed her arms and got closer to her. "What are you doing?" Astrid demanded to know.
"Your sword is one point two meters long, with a hilt that is only one-fifth of a meter long." I held onto her hands with a firm grip, "At this range, you cannot harm me!" I the
Pokemon: Reluctant Traveler: Chapter 6The group walked towards Saffron City, there on the dirt road Erika skipped ahead of everyone humming a tune with Dracoon. She smiled brightly and radiated an aura of happiness, which caused both Hale and Roy who were further behind her, confusion.
Roy pointed to Erika with his thumb and looked at Hale. "What's up her ass?" Hale shrugged, "Something good get in there?" Roy then got this perverted look on his face, "Like... you for instance?"
Hale was shocked to hear that. "Dude... seriously?" Roy then began to laugh, and Hale shouted, "NO! What is wrong with you?"
Shrugging with his pervert and gleeful smile, Roy says, "Can you blame me for asking?"
"YES! I can... and I will!" Hale retorted.
Their small and perverted debate was interrupted by Erika who cutely called over her friends. "Hey boys, you mind checking this out?" That's when the two guys ran towards the end of the road where Erika was standing. There they saw Saffron City, it was here that a circus could be seen. The Ferris W
Magic and the Sword: Chapter 1Astrid's first impulse was to stab the pale bandits. However, that did little to nothing. The man just looked at her, with eyes whiter than the clouds in the skies, and with the strength of a giant he threw her back towards me. These were not people... these were creatures of magic... creatures of magic can only be defeated... by other creatures of magic, such as myself.
I helped Lady Cossette up, and then we heard the child scream again. "Milady!" I began, "Someone needs your help. Go, I believe only I can kill these men."
She challenged my statement, "What makes you so great?"
Again a bloody cry for help was heard inside the burning farm, "Do not question a wizard! Just go and save whomever is in there!" Astrid, with reluctance, took off. I looked at my foes, there were ten of them. With my staff being twirled I jammed it into the ground, and awaited for them to make the first move.
Lady Cossette ran into the burning building, fire and smoke filled the air and rooms. As she tried
Magic and the Sword: PrologueA hooded man in a long black robe carrying a red staff with a blue jewel on it sits in a tavern. The fire roars and the wood cracks. Here in this place, people gather to drink their days away. This man isn't all that old, he's only in his twenties but yet, he doesn't act it. A child approached him, and asked why he's so scary-looking. And this was replied with, "Allow me to tell you a story..."
This is a story filled with love, hate, deception, and magic. Now you may feel that magic isn't possible, but yet... dragons exist. "People can't cast lightning from their fingertips!" And so I'm told, and yet it was also said that wood can't be close to fire or else it'll burn. If that were completely true, why does Iron Bark Armor exist? Magic does exist, and just like any faith... it's only real if you believe.
Now, enough of my lectures! I promised you a story and I will tell it. Have you ever heard of the female knight known as Astrid Cossette? She was quite the noble soul. This is a st
