Hmm, just a strange little idea I had all of a sudden. I thought I'd write about Kraden and Babi cutting mangoes then kissing each other and dressing up as women. No, wait, that was just right now.
Felix: Uh...? Why mangoes?
Well, I had a funny little idea where Garet impales himself on a pitchfork and everybody points and laughs because they think it's funny about Ivan seeing the future and then he must prevent the Day of Lavos from happening- wait, wrong game, and then thinking about how he could put it right (he could meet a princess, get a strange pendant and travel through time!) and then it turned into this detailed little plot... which phails for not being Chrono Trigger.
Let's see! Disclaimer? I am way too lazy to bother with those. Muse convos FTW. >.>
Felix: *waves a long floaty banner which says: CAMELOT OWNS GOLDEN SUN!* I don't like muse convos anymore.
And yeah, I've rushed the beginning a bit, I admit to writing badly! *gasp* I didn't really want to drag it out... because someone was holding me at gunpoint and telling me if I didn't finish as quickly as possible, they would blast out my brains. Honest.
The journey to find the meaning behind life, the
universe and everything was over, the long and
tiring journey around the world of Wayard which is
Weyard spelled with an extra a before English TLA had been
released. All the eight Adepts, Eight? Say
it isn't so! and Kraden, had returned to
the destroyed ruined Vale, with some extra people
too People from Vale count as extra? The
Valeans were excited to see them. Isaac, Garet, Jenna, Felix
and Kraden were constantly being asked about their
adventures and sex lives, Sheba was
teasing seducing Picard and seeing
how far she could push him as she usually did, and Mia was
talking to one of the younger children who wanted to know
about healing. Though, why would a kid want to know
Ivan was short quiet, almost secluded.
Secluded kind of means alone. If he's alone, he's
alone. He felt a strange urge to go up to the
Psynergy stone at the centre of the utterly ruined
and destroyed plaza, but Ivan did not know why. He
felt as if someone was calling him, and to find out who and
why, he had to make a link somewhere. The
erection wouldn't go away, so the blond
Jupiter Adept thought of naked Babi darted
up to the Psynergy stone and he nimbly leapt over the water.
Something which should have not happened, because last I checked, Psynergy stones didn't do what it's about to do it happened to Ivan because he's SPESHUL!. He stumbled in mid-jump and started falling head forwards. Some of the Adepts stared at him in amusement consternation and worry, as he collided with the Psynergy stone and cracked his head open. Luckily, the big, sparkling, violet stone was unharmed. Oh, yeah, that's right! Lucky for the Psynergy stone, not for Ivan! Ivan curled up at the base, cursing hard rocks falling into a deep sleep. Isaac, Garet and Mia rushed to his side, trying to find out what was wrong. Felix, Jenna, Sheba and Picard hung back, letting them deal with it.
"He's unconscious." decided Isaac, feeling Ivan's
crotch head for any bumps.
"We should get him to the inn at once." said Mia urgently. "There's no place to rest like a destroyed building."
"Why can't we just leave him there?" suggested Garet.
"He's hurt, we can't just do that!" exclaimed Mia.
"I think he's alright, it's just a gut feeling inside me, but we should take him inside..." Isaac bodily lifted Ivan up
and they carefully scaled the gap over the water, bearing the unconscious 15-year-old to the inn.
Ivan did not hear their voices, he only felt the sensation that he was falling into a bottomless pit of DOOM!
<Welcome to my future...>
Ivan barely heard the whispering voice inside his head, and strained his hearing in case it was coming from around him. Don't you know it's possible to control how much or little you can hear? Ivan can. He didn't dare speak in case whatever it was got scared off. A lot of things could get scared off by short, 15-year-old boys.
He looked around wildly. As far as he could see, he was falling through dark empty space. It shifted around him, black on black space was rubbing itself, yet it did not move closer or further away. The air was cold, rushing up to meet the falling boy. His hair was blown into his face which was an impressive feat for short hair and he tried to shake it out, lifting an arm to rub his eyes.
<The future I never wanted to see...>
Ivan shuddered. He could hear quite well, despite the voice being quiet and whispery. And he had heard that it was the voice's future, whatever it was, and it was also his, which meant the voice was his own voice. But how could Ivan be hearing his own voice inside his head? It didn't sound like him either. He had psychosis or an evil twin living in his head.
<...Judgement took a turn and slept with Boreas...>
Ivan dumbly wondered if the voice was talking about the Judgment summon of Venus, then reprimanded himself for thinking such a stupid thing. He racked his brains, trying to think about what they meant. Judgement.... when one judges another... I'm amazed he knows how they were spelling it.
<All Adepts fell to it... as Judgement ravaged the lands, seeking them out. They tried to defy it, but resistance was futile... they fell and scraped their knees...>
"WHAT are you talking about?" screamed Ivan. He was beginning to feel frightened. It didn't seem as if Ivan would ever stop falling. He kept on plummeting into the void, pushed down by gravity, and no way to get back up, no way to stop his descent. He didn't seem to be falling any slower or faster no matter how hard he tried. And then I fell asleep.
<You will see...> I see myself sleeping on the keyboard.
A searing red-hot pain exploded in Ivan's head and he quickly took some Ibuprofen, and a blinding white light dazed him. He closed his eyes tight, until the light faded. The pain continued to throb, but it eventually ebbed away after a few minutes. Ivan seemed to be lying on a soft surface. He turned over onto his side and looked down onto what looked like a bed of cotton-wool, but it was softer and thicker and it did not give way as Ivan moved. Maybe it's a cloud. Dun DUN! Wait, wouldn't he just fall right through it? He got onto his knees and looked around curiously. Above him was the sky, a soft shade of cerulean blue. A gentle golden light gleamed on him, but he could not see where it was coming from.
<At last you are here...> It's all your fault you're late!
Ivan turned around in alarm, deciding that the voice was coming from behind him. He couldn't trust his own hearing. He stared in surprise, seeing a middle-aged man with long, messy dark blond hair. He was hunched over on a long, twisted rod and he wore a flowing purple cloak. Underneath, he wore green and yellow garments. His face was wizened, and careworn, with a network of lines criss-crossing his bronze skin. His small, squinted eyes were a dark purple. That's a hell of a lot of description. Let's add a little more. He had twenty warts on the soles of his feet, a hairy chest, a boil on his bottom and a freckled back.
He realised then that he was looking at his future self.
Now he would just have to be careful not to get a
boil on his bottom.
"Why-why am I here?" Ivan asked softly, as if speaking louder would cause the image to disappear. Ivan is simply terrifying. Perhaps this was all a dream, and he would soon wake up, but Ivan was sure it was real.
<I'll show you... my secret spot>
The apparition spoke, but it did not move. Apparently Ivan's future form has no gender.
He remained still, staring straight ahead.
His Oh, it has a gender now mouth did not
move as he spoke. Ivan backed away nervously and
screamed for his mommy. His future form as every bit as
terrifying as he was.
<Don't be afraid, young one... join me and we will rule the galaxy as father and son... oh, wait a minute... turn around and the truth will be revealed...>
Ivan glanced worriedly at his future self, but obediently turned to face the blank sky. Wisps of cloud shifted into Ivan's line of view and arranged themselves to form a large square. The square seemed to zoom towards Ivan, getting closer until it was large enough to swallow him whole and still have plenty of room. *GULP* Then it ate him. Then burped. The blue inside turned to a bright white, and Ivan felt himself compelled to watch, and not to stop until it was all over.
Little did Ivan know how terrible the future would turn out to be...
He saw different couples together, and he realised he knew them. They were his friends, just older now.
Isaac was there, taller with even spikier hair. People mistook him for a hedgehog now. He wore similar dark blue and gold clothes, and on his arm, he had a beautiful girl wearing a dark blue kimono, with long flowing purple hair and green eyes gleaming like emeralds. It was Feizhi. Isaac and Feizhi end up together... how exactly?
Garet, standing at the plaza where Ivan had been only a few minutes before until he was taken to a destroyed building. He wore expensive looking garments and people seemed to treat him with a little bit more respect. Ivan could just hear someone calling Garet the mayor, which made sense to him since Garet's grandfather was the mayor of Vale. Garet's father didn't become the mayor because of a mysterious "accident". A pregnant woman with long blue hair, wearing blue and purple dresses and robes, rushed up to Garet and they embraced happily. Ivan recognised an older Mia.
Felix and Sheba were together in Vale. Felix wore the same types of clothes, and he still had his dark brown hair tied back in a long ponytail. Sheba wore a white and gold dress and had a gold circlet around her head, and long blonde hair falling to her waist. They sat together on a grassy hill, looking over Vale and throwing spit balls.
Jenna strode purposefully along a path through the town burning trees. She wore a light purple dress, a rust-red tunic and had a long purple scarf tied around her neck. Her hair was a dark red-brown, hanging loose. She stopped and looked around, her face breaking into a grin when a man with blue hair greeted her and they embraced. Ivan could have sworn he recognised Alex.
He saw Picard, alone, living in Lemuria and getting on with his life, talking to people and doing everyday things. Somehow Piers evaded his ban.
Then Ivan saw himself, yet he did not seem to be at any particular location. This Ivan only looked a few years older, and he stood against a screen of black, a bright yellow light shining down on him as if he was in a feature film or something, but of course Ivan wouldn't know what a feature film was, they hadn't been invented yet. THANK YOU, CAPTAIN OBVIOUS!
The future Ivan stared directly at Ivan and mouthed, 'Welcome to your future. Like Isaac and Felix, I lost my voice due to a brief bout of laryngitis. Don't mind me.'
Ivan felt himself tilting and before he could stop himself, he was pitching forwards, falling through the screen. He landed on a rough surface, yet he did not feel any pain. He was now inside his future, not just watching. It was around him and he couldn't escape.
"MIA!" Ivan turned as he heard the tortured scream. He
saw Garet trying to reach into a frantic crowd, but Garet
was shoved back and fell onto his backside. *points* HA
ha! He shook an angry fist, a tear trickling down
his face in anguish then burned the entire damn
crowd. Ivan started running, and he circled the
crowds, finally slipping through to the centre. Mia stood
there, wearing nothing but a dirty white cloth gown. She
appeared to be heavily pregnant. Her dirt stained face was
streaked with desperate tears. Her feet were bare and
covered in black grime. Mia's eyes were wide open,
reflecting intense levels of fear and pain. She clutched the
bump in her stomach tightly, trying to protect the life
growing inside her. A tall man with a stubbly beard, wearing
black clothes, stepped forwards, his boots making loud
noises upon impact with the ground. He held aloft a stick,
flaring at the end with a bright red-orange flame. Mia
screeched as she looked upon the flame. She had
forgotten that she was actually capable of PUTTING OUT fire.
"NO!" Ivan yelled in horror. They wouldn't do that to her, would they? How could they do it?
Mia tried to back away but strong hands grasped her from behind, holding her in place. Ivan wanted to rush forwards and free Mia, but he couldn't move, he was rooted tightly to the spot, forced to watch the horrifying event folding out in front of him. He couldn't close his eyes, they stayed rigidly open because a part of him was extremely morbid.
The stick was thrust forwards, directly into Mia's plump stomach. And with a very large uterus, Mia must be looking pretty darn fat. Unless the baby was growing in her stomach. Maybe it's an alien. She yelled in pain, and Ivan gagged as the acrid smell of rotting flesh Damn, it's rotting pretty fast. Shouldn't it be burning? invaded his sensitive nose. Mia crouched over, screeching in agony as the flames licked over her body, hungrily consuming her dress. She was suicidal and couldn't be bothered to Douse herself. The dancing flames moved all over her body. Mia collapsed to the ground, burning to death. She was in too much pain to use her Psynergy. What was stopping her before? The crowds moved away from the charred figure, sneering and jeering in derision. Garet finally got to Mia and kneeled besides her, looking down in desperation into her lolling eyes. Tongues loll. Not eyes. Ivan also stepped forwards and kneeled on Mia's opposite side, watching the flames die away. All that was left of Mia were cinders and lolling eyes, her life swept away on the breeze. Garet bowed his head low, crying tears for his lost love.
"Garet, look out!" Ivan yelped suddenly, but Garet did not hear him. Nobody could see or hear Ivan, who had gone where he should not be, viewing his own future. A long spear was driven straight through Garet, entering his back and coming out through the front of his torso, dripping crimson blood. Garet stared at it in wonder, blood beginning to stain his lips. He looked up, straight through Ivan, before toppling over.
Ivan leaped upwards and backed away, almost crying.
Then the scene changed. Ivan gazed upon what was once
Vale, now nothing more than the blazing wreckage of a once
proud village. He cried out.
"WHY? Why must I see all this?" Because you touch yourself at night.
But nobody answered. Ivan was alone, his questions unanswered.
He saw Jenna being forced to the ground, her head resting on a block of wood. He saw a fence around her, so many people surrounding the wired fences, watching the imminent execution. Jenna tried to struggle but it was useless. The axe hung silently over her. Ivan looked at the crowds, seeing Felix screaming, seeing Alex trying to scale the fence but he kept being pushed back. Neither of them could get to Jenna in time to stop the execution. Ivan squeezed his eyes shut as he heard the swish of the axe, the loud noise. And then silence... So now he can shut his eyes? Too bad. I really wanted to hear about Jenna's head bouncing on the ground and blood gushing out of... never mind.
Ivan re-opened his eyes and met a steady purple gaze- a
pair of purple eyes not unlike his own. He looked
wonderingly up at his future self.
"Why?" he whispered. "I really like saying "Why?"
"This is your bad future..." intoned Ivan's future self, "And it all started with a madman who ruled Tolbi..."
"Lord Babi?" Ivan's eyes bugged out. He'd missed the memo about Babi being dead.
"No, idiot!" Future Ivan's voice was harsh now he really hated being interrupted, "Lord Babi's dead! He's already dead in your time! Iodem should have taken after him, but he was murdered by his younger brother... a cruel, ruthless man... and this man loathes Adepts. I do not know why, but he began to spread word that Adepts were scum, and more and more people listened, and they began to seek out the Adepts and-"
"Ok, ok! I get the picture!" screamed Ivan desperately, "But how the hell could mere humans do anything to Adepts? do I prevent this?"
"It is too late to save Iodem," Future Ivan said seriously, "But it is not too late to stop the new ruler of Tolbi from spreading his venom. His name is Rodan, and he is powerful. Yes, he is certainly no Adept, but his sword skills and his athletic physique should be a worthy match for nine Adepts. Because you all don't use Psynergy enough, apparently"
"Pfft, Psynergy is overrated. NINE?" exclaimed Ivan.
"Yes, nine," Future Ivan glared at his younger self, "That would be Isaac, Garet, Mia, Felix, Jenna, Sheba, Picard, Alex and I... you..."
"But Alex was buried under a ton of rock after getting owned by a one-eyed rock-"
"Don't worry, they've found him..." Future Ivan gripped Ivan's shoulder tightly and leaned close then passionately kissed his past self upon the lips, "You must hurry before it is too late. Sheba can help you convince everybody it is true because if you told everyone Adepts were going to get wiped out by pathetic humans, nobody would even believe you, then you must get to Tolbi and eradicate Rodan!"
"Okay! Just send me back already!" cried Ivan shrilly. "Wait, can we have buttsex?"
"No thanks. I don't want to give you my STIs. Just stay away from Piers." Future Ivan gave Ivan a shove and he found himself falling backwards into the darkness...
"I think we should take him to the sanctum!" cried Mia.
"First I want to take him to the inn, then I want to
take him to the sanctum? I must be suffering from bipolar
"He's only unconscious, he'll be fine." Isaac's soft voice cut in. "I could cast Revive, but I can't be bothered."
"He's been sleeping for ages." complained Garet. "Revive? What's that? Psynergy? Who the heck uses that?"
"Maybe he is tired, we should leave him?" suggested Picard. "I might stay here though." *shifty eyes*
"Hey, guess who I found!" a shrill female voice cut in as someone came running into the bedroom.
"Jenna?" Felix asked. "Did you find Santa?"
"No, you n00b! Look!" cried Jenna.
"It's Alex!" exclaimed Sheba.
"Yes, it's me..." said an eighth voice, Alex's. "I somehow survived being buried under tons of rocks and getting my ass kicked by a very powerful rock and now I'm gonna hang out with you guys even though I tried to take over the world. Like, what's up, everyone?"
Ivan opened his eyes blearily to see the eight Adepts
clustered near his bed having a wild, frantic orgy.
Mia was pacing across the room, looking frantic. Isaac was
trying to pacify her. Garet was glaring sullenly at the
floor. Jenna had her arms tightly around Alex's neck and he
was trying to free himself while Felix was firing a barrage
of questions at him. Picard was wavering by the door
and giving Ivan longing stares. Sheba was staring
straight at Ivan. She cried out as she saw Ivan was awake.
"He's awakened!" called Sheba.
Ivan shot upright and looked around wildly at everyone.
"WE HAVE TO GO TO TOLBI!" he screamed. "THERE'S FREE TACOS AT TACO BELL!"
The stunned Adepts stared at him. Ivan liked TACOS?
"Look, Ivan, I understand if you LIKE Tolbi..." Isaac began. "But I HATE tacos."
"But wouldn't you rather stay in Vale a bit longer?" asked Mia. "I kind of like hanging around destroyed villages. Don't you?"
"Tolbi's not THAT important!" said Garet, looking at Ivan as if he had sprouted a second head.
"I don't want to go to Tolbi..." Sheba shuddered. "Can't sleep. Tolbians will eat me."
"Ok, who made him go nuts?" asked Alex, grinning. Jenna quickly gave him a noogie to shut him up.
"I've never been to Tolbi, is it that great?" asked Picard.
Sighing, Ivan jumped out and held out his hands.
"Sheba, take one of my hands and
mind read me
read my mind. Make a circle, holding hands
so you all get to read my mind. This is
Sheba wordlessly took his left hand, linking her other hand with Felix's. Ivan linked his other hand with Isaac's, who linked with Garet. Garet linked with Mia, Mia linked with Jenna, who linked with Alex. Alex linked with Picard who linked with Felix. The matter of whose hand held whom is VERY IMPORTANT TO THE PLOT. Honest. The circle of Adepts was complete. Sheba started probing into Ivan's mind. Ivan relaxed, revealing the whole truth to her about what he had seen. Everyone's expressions grew grim. When the mind reading was over, they were nearly all lost for words. Unable to believe that Mia could be so stupid and none of them could be bothered to use Psynergy against puny humans.
"Right, who's got the Teleport Lapis?" asked Felix, immediately taking control. "Nobody called it a useless piece of junk and tossed it, right?"
"Me!" Sheba held up the precious blue gem. "I was going to pawn it but..."
"We leave Vale and teleport to Tolbi then. All of us." Felix said finally.
"What, even me?" began Alex. "I'd rather go off and plot world domination."
"Yes, even you!" Mia glared at him feeling a bit angered about being intimidated by flaming sticks, making him shut up.
Tolbi had only slightly changed since the death of their former ruler, Lord Babi. Once it had been happy and bustling, but now people were moderately quiet and hushed as if a knell had just sounded. Please stop with the comparisons. Once, Colosso festivals took place every year and brave warriors battled it out every year because it took place EVERY YEAR. Did you hear that? Every year!, but the new ruler of Tolbi would make sure there would never be another Colosso. He liked Tolbi to be boring. Most people were mystified by the recent goings-on. Just a month ago, Babi had died of old age which means less than a month had elapsed between the Lemuria trip and lighting Mars Lighthouse. Damn, that was fast, but everybody had been expecting it. A few people were even glad to see him go. As they expected, Iodem took over immediately after his death and the Tolbians were happy... until a terrible tragedy struck. Iodem was found floating off the Tolbi docks, in the Karagol Sea, his throat cut. The leadership of Tolbi was passed along to Iodem's brother, Rodan. Where the heck did he come from? How the heck did he become a leader? Who cares? He was cruel and ruthless, and he ruled over Tolbi with an iron fist.
Right now, Rodan stood gloating and monologuing in
the private quarters of his palace. He had long flowing
black hair and bright green eyes. He wore a suit of silver
armour, with a long flowing yellow cape. He peered in the
mirror and stroked the stubble on his chin, chuckling in
"O, look, I can speak Shakespearean! Iodem, you were weak. Now I rule Tolbi. Those pathetic Alchemy sages are all gone, and I'll see to it they never return. I always hated them for talking too much. All the Adepts worldwide will know terror, as I plunder the lands, wiping their kind from existance!"
"Lord Rodan!" hollered a guard from far off. Rodan scowled and crossed his private quarters, striding through the corridors of the palace and being greeted by a frantic guard.
"Some people have entered Tolbi and they claim they wish to see you at once!" The guard licked his lips nervously because he found his leader absolutely terrifying. Rodan did not like having his time wasted, and he did not like bad news either. News don't get any worse than people visiting you.
"Really?" Rodan sneered, grabbing the guard by his neck, "Is it IMPORTANT?" It's common practice in Tolbi to greet people by grabbing their necks.
"Y-yes, I think so!" squealed the guard feebly, flailing in terror.
"Pathetic coward!" snarled Rodan, throwing him across the chamber, "Send them to the meeting room, I'll be there shortly."
The guard nodded hastily and ran off, rubbing his sore neck. Rodan sniffed disdainfully at the bad smell floating from his armpits and returned to his chamber, deciding to equip himself just in case.
The nine Adepts were rather disgruntled at being shoved
into the meeting room.
"I'd rather we could spring him instead!" shouted Garet. "But apparently we're so useless it wouldn't work."
"Yeah, it would be so easy, the guards wouldn't bat an eyelash." said Jenna sarcastically. "It's not like we could overpower them or anything."
"Just calm down..." Isaac shuffled his feet nervously.
"CALM DOWN?" Mia stared at him, "Any second now, this Rodan guy will come walking in and he might wave a flaming stick of doom at me! OH NOES!"
"Just douse it, you stupid woman. And we'll have to be on our best behaviour." said Alex smoothly, although by the tone of his voice, he obviously didn't mean it. Alex was never one to be on his best behaviour.
"Just don't immediately try ramming a fist into his gut," Felix glared at him "Blast him with Psynergy instead. Even if we want to." he added with a half smile.
"I want to!" declared Jenna furiously.
"I thought so." countered Felix.
"If we have to battle, what do we do then?" asked Sheba. "Do we use that... what was it called? Pie something?"
"We use our Psynergy, it's that simple." Ivan seemed faintly confident. "Why do you think my future self lasted longer than everyone else? I actually USE it!"
"It better be!" Isaac looked around wildly. "It can't do much against puny humans!"
"We'll show him what Adepts stand for!" cried Garet.
"What's that then?" asked Picard.
"Umm..." Garet hesitated. "Shoot, I forgot. I can't even remember how to use Psynergy, you know."
"Using our Psynergy for defence!" shouted Jenna. "Wow, I'm amazed I remembered that!"
"Yeah, for the sake of our future!" declared Mia, clutching her stomach as she remembered what she saw in Ivan's mind. "So... um... how do I do it again?"
The door burst open and Rodan strolled in. His steely
eyes glinted coldly as he surveyed the Adepts with a cold
stare, showing his passionate loathing of people.
Felix could see that several of his companions were about to
explode, so he quickly took control again.
"Lord Rodan of Tolbi, I presume?" he asked politely.
"Yes, I am. And who would you kids be?" Rodan asked gruffly, folding his arms across his suit of armour. He chose not to go for neck grabbing, since there were too many people.
"Ki-" Jenna started. Alex immediately clamped a hand over her mouth and smiled cheerfully as if it was nothing.
"I am Ivan of Kalay," Ivan cut in , "This is Sheba of Lalivero, Mia and Alex of Imil, Picard of Lemuria- and yes, saying place names is very important."
"I'm not just-" began Picard, but Sheba quickly trod on his foot. No. I don't know. Wait, I do. This is when we thought he was a prince. Don't ask.
"And I am Felix of Vale, and these three are also of Vale, my sister, Jenna, and Isaac and Garet." Felix finished. "Wait, should I really have said we were from Vale, the super secret destroyed hideout of Adepts?"
"Vale?" Rodan's eyes darted back and forth and his tongue quickly rolled over his lips, as he watched them suspiciously.
"Felix, you're an idiot." Isaac hissed quietly. "You also said my name. That's idiotic. Because I'm famous and everyone knows I used weird powers in Colosso."
"Shut up, let me do the talking," Felix hissed back. "This foot in my mouth isn't big enough yet." He cleared his throat and started again, "Yes. We wished to greet the new ruler of Tolbi, and say congratulations on your new role."
"And what, pray tell," mocked Rodan, "in WHAT way does Tolbi concern any of you?"
"We were once friends of Lord Babi." Isaac said seriously. Felix glared at him. Isaac glared back. Felix did not like the idea of once being friends with Babi.
"Hmm, I see..." Rodan's face split into a wide smile, "Do you think Lord Babi was a good ruler?"
Several of them wanted to say no because we like bashing Babi LOL, but Felix quickly lied, "Yes, Tolbi was a fine place under the rule of Lord Babi."
"Do you think Tolbi is any worse?" Rodan took a step forwards, glaring at them. He felt quite rivalled by a dead guy.
"Certainly not." Ivan assured, he was beginning to sweat now. Could his future self have given him the wrong advice? Maybe he should RUN AND HIDE instead!
"Hmm, well, I am pleased to meet you. By the way, I am being sarcastic." Rodan curtly turned away and strode towards the door. He turned around to face the Adepts and smiled fakely, "I have things to do, perhaps we could meet tomorrow. You may stay at the palace if you wish, I shall let my guards know." He exited.
"THAT was a lot of help!" raged Garet, his fury boiling
inside him. "Why didn't we just blow him up?"
"We forgot. If Isaac hadn't gone and opened his stupid mouth-" Felix began.
"If YOU hadn't mentioned Vale-" Isaac argued.
"SHUT UP!" shouted Jenna. They looked at her in surprise. "We should stay for tonight, but tomorrow we should be able to do something."
"What if he cuts our throats in our sleep?" Sheba demanded.
"Our Psynergy should protect us, right?" Mia asked concernedly. "Then again, when does it ever do that anyway?"
"I'm not taking chances with a tyrant. I don't wish to." scowled Alex.
"Our Psynergy protected us in Kolima Forest." Ivan recalled. "It probably only does it if we're in danger of becoming trees though."
"We should let Felix decide, he's the leader." said Picard.
"What about me? Shouldn't I get a say?" complained Isaac.
"You're the co-leader," said Felix firmly, "I'm the leader so I have to make the choices... if Mia's right, our Psynergy should protect us. But it's a completely different situation and Mia's an idiot, so probably not. I do not think he would kill us yet, we have not made it obvious we pose a threat. Tolbi is a long way from Vale, so we should rest here tonight." He had conveniently forgotten how they GOT THERE.
"And what if I disagree?" asked Isaac.
"You can walk back to Vale." Felix said seriously. "Sheba pawned off the Teleport Lapis before we got to the palace so you can't use it."
"I'm with Felix, I want to kill that bastard." Garet said resolutely.
Isaac looked at his friends in horror. Even Garet was on Felix's side. He sighed in defeat, "Okay..."
Night fell like a blanket upon Tolbi. As the darkness fell, the Tolbians fled back to their homes to bed. There were strict laws in Tolbi now. If you weren't in your house after dark, you were subject to punishment. Uh, ok. That's just ridiculous. Nobody dared speak out against Rodan's awful rules, some even suspected he had murdered Iodem. Little did anybody know how right they really were.
The Adepts slept peacefully in their makeshift beds,
their dreams only slightly troubled. Above them, Rodan was
making cruel plans with his most faithful servants
"Downstairs, in the sleeping quarters, there are nine people I believe to be of that accursed race of Adepts. I want you to take the girls and lock them in the dungeons. Tomorrow, I shall duel the remaining Adepts. If they should lose, they will ALL be killed, including those you take. But if they actually beat me because there's no way people who use elemental powers could beat a mere, puny human like me, kill them all anyway..."
He chuckled, believing his plan to be fool-proof. But if there's ever a rule of dueling Adepts, it should be never to underestimate an Adept. Because Adepts use PSYNERGY!
The guards quietly stole into the chambers, careful not to disturb anybody. They were quick and strong, as well as careful, and they were able to bear away Jenna, Mia and Sheba as quietly as possible without even waking them. Everyone else slept soundly, not realising their numbers had somewhat dwindled. The girls were carefully carried away and placed in the dungeons. The guards reported back to Rodan and he crowed gleefully, deciding that he was definitely going to have a victory now. Even though they'd only been rid of a useless and weak attacker, an idiot who forgot how to use Psynergy and... well, ok, Jenna's a loss.
Ivan stood alone on bare earth, surrounded by swirling
purple smoke. His future self from just a few years away
stood in front of him.
"What now?" asked Ivan pleadingly. "Can we please have buttsex?"
"Maybe when you're older. I don't want to feel like a pedophile. Be careful..." his future self began to fade away into the smoke "Use your wits..."
"WAIT!" shouted Ivan, but he was already gone.
<It begins tomorrow...>
"Tomorrow..." Ivan began to grow slightly nervous, "Tomorrow? But tomorrow's the sale at Gap! I don't want to miss it!"
Mia rolled over fretfully. It was cold, so cold. She
dreamt that she was stuck inside a freezer, That's
right, people! Mia's subconscious has invented the freezer! buried
somewhere in the snow north of Imil and a very hungry Mauler
was heading her way, and she couldn't escape otherwise she
would turn into a popsicle. She was also a little
confused about being inside some unidentifiable object. The
freezer told her so. So the Mauler came along and unearthed
the freezer, looking at it in utter confusion.
He tugged the door open and Mia-
Mia jerked awake, shivering.
"It's so cold..." she whimpered, gritting her teeth and feeling around her. Her hands came into contact with a cold stone floor. Wonderingly, she reached out and touched a stone wall. "Eureka! I have discovered a stone wall!" Mia wondered if she was still dreaming as she slowly stood up and walked forwards. Being as dense as she was, she couldn't tell the difference between dreaming and reality.
"Hello?" she called softly, taking several large strides before colliding with a warm object. A foot whacked Mia in the face Damn, that's a long leg and she fell onto her backside, yelping in pain. She felt something moving near her and went rigid, wondering what it was.
"Who the hell bumped into me?" demanded an angry female voice. Mia felt relief flood her when she realised that it was Jenna's voice speaking.
"Jenna, it's me, Mia. Where are we?"
"Beats me..." Jenna quickly called forth her fire Psynergy and a large fireball appeared in one hand, which she used to illuminate the room. "See? I use Psynergy!" They were in a bare, stone cell. Sheba was lying down in one corner of the room. An unlit candle was fixed into one of the walls. Jenna quickly got up and walked over to light it.
"Why are we here?" fretted Mia, rushing over to the door and peeking through the bars. She could see nothing, it was dark, too dark. She screamed "HELLO, ANYBODY THERE? HELP!" Never mind the fact that the only people who might hear are the ones who put them in the dungeon in the first place.
"You don't shout help!" snapped Jenna, walking to the door, "You say this! HEY, ANYBODY OUT THERE WITH ANY BRAINS? If you had brains you would let us out, you BRAINLESS cretins!"
Her shout echoed through many corridors. It was a very powerful shout. Jenna and Mia waited suspensefully for any response, but they heard nothing. Because everyone was asleep in bed.
"Unnng?" Sheba stirred sleepily, "Hmm?"
"Sheba," Jenna approached her and started gently shaking her, "Sheba, wake up, we're in trouble here."
"Uhh?" Sheba opened her weary green eyes and looked around wonderingly, "Where are we?"
"We are in a cell," Mia answered, sitting next to Jenna and Sheba, "And, no, we don't know why we are here."
"WHAT?" Sheba sat bolt upright, "We're in a CELL? I always thought it would be a padded room full of elephants!"
"Mia just said so." Jenna said simply. "Idiot."
"What if we're being kept here while..." Sheba's eyes bugged out in horror, her mouth in a soundless O.
"Huh?" Jenna stared curiously at her. Mia's stupidity was beginning to rub off on them.
"It all seems to be part of some divine plan." grumbled Mia. "But you honestly can't expect me to figure that out by myself."
"It's a plan!" exclaimed Sheba, her face ashen, "Roden I thought his name was Rodan. Like the mutant pterosaur who was a friend of Godzilla plans to duel tomorrow, but he's craftily using us!"
"Using us?" Mia echoed. "So... uh... duh? What were we talking about again?"
"If he wins, he can just send the guards down here to kill us," Sheba said bitterly, "Or they will do it if he loses anyway."
"WHAT?" Jenna leaped upwards, alarmed and started pacing, "Are you SERIOUS? Watch me use CAPS!"
"Deadly serious." Sheba confirmed.
Mia flinched, "Sheba!" She hated the word deadly.
"Well, I suppose that Rodan is cruel enough to," Jenna returned to her sitting position with a sigh, "How are we going to get out of this one?"
"Maybe we'll be lucky?" said Mia faintly. "You can't possibly expect me to figure it out."
"We'll have to count on the boys." Sheba decided. "Because we suck."
"Yes, we'll count on them." Jenna shivered.
"It's freezing, how are we supposed to get back to sleep?" grumbled Mia.
"You come from Imil!" exclaimed Jenna, "Aren't you used to the cold?" Somehow, she thought Mia was a Proxian.
"Jenna," Mia said patiently, "I always wrapped up warm in Imil. Right now, I'm wearing nothing but a nightgown."
"We're indecent!" said Sheba disgustedly, looking at her purple nightrobe. She preferred nakedness.
"Anyway," Jenna said, ignoring Sheba, "We can either talk all night or go to sleep freezing cold, which is very difficult. Or we could have a hot lesbian threesome."
"I like the threesome idea. Can't you use your fire?" Mia asked stupidly. See? I even called her stupid there! ... Ok, this is ridiculous.
"Sure!" Jenna cackled, "I can fry you alive!"
"Can it, Jenna," Sheba laid a reassuring hand on her shoulder, "It's simple, we use each other's body heat. Just stay close and you'll be fine. And I totally want to top."
"I'd rather be in BED!" complained Mia. The girls quickly snuggled up close, and before long they were having hot lesbian sex sleeping, dreaming turbulent nightmares of the coming tomorrow.
The first rays of sunlight stretched over Tolbi a few
hours later. Life returned to the once silent city, as the
day broke. People mingled and talked, browsing the market.
Inside the palace, people were also awakening. Isaac was the
first up, he stretched and yawned tiredly. His heart started
beating rapidly as he remembered what the prospect of today
held, but he quickly tried to calm himself and got out of
bed. He was a little nervous about fighting a weak
and puny human. He was half expecting to find
everyone else murdered, but luckily everyone he found was
okay. The guys got up and quickly got dressed. Then
wondered why the hell they brought their pajamas with them.
"Do you think the girls got up before us?" wondered Picard. "For some reason, it just seems bizarre."
"I want to go back to sleep!" Garet grumbled tiredly. "I'm lazy."
"Hmm..." Isaac glanced around worriedly.
"Their clothes are still there and their beds are not made." Felix frowned. "They couldn't possibly be lazy this morning! No way!"
"I would suppose they went to the bathroom, but all three of them at once?" Ivan said sceptically.
"They must have been taken!" shouted Alex desperately. "Look, I'm actually worrying!"
Before panic could take over, a guard stepped in and took a hasty bow.
"Greetings, guests. You may go to the dining chamber for breakfast, and afterwards, Lord Rodan wishes to see you personally in the meeting room again."
He quickly took his leave.
"I'm going to KILL him!" raged Garet. "We should have just done that before!"
"How DARE he kidnap my sister?" Felix scowled angrily. "I like abusing caps!"
"Let's just get to breakfast, and then we can interrogate him good." Isaac said, heading to the door and turning back to look at his companions. "Stop abusing the damn caps."
"I'm all for breakfast, and then we teach that jerk a thing or two." Alex said determinedly, looking around.
"Me too." said Picard.
After a rushed, hasty breakfast, and a good degree of
shouting at Garet, since he was taking so long to eat all
the food he had taken for himself, they were finally heading
towards the meeting room. They were all nervous and agitated
about fighting a weak and puny human.
"I had a vision," Ivan told everybody on the way, "I was told that it begins today, whatever it is. I guess it was that we would have to duel Rodan today. I really wanted to go to Gap."
"Well, we're certainly prepared." Felix clenched a fist. "You actually like Gap? Ralph Lauren is where it's at."
"Always prepared, that's us!" hollered Isaac confidently. "Pfft. Bloomingdale's owns them both."
"We're going to make him pay, we're going to make him pay..." Garet started chanting.
"Stop that, it's annoying." snapped the irritated Alex.
"Can't blame him for having a little spirit." said Picard.
They pushed open the broad doors and stepped into the
wide open room, an almost circular, spacy room with oblong
windows. Thin rays of light shone in all directions as the
Adepts stepped onto the red and gold carpet. They walked
forwards purposefully, their gaze ever on the three figures
at the centre of the room. Lord Rodan turned around and
smirked when he saw them. The two guards with him glanced at
each other nervously. The Adepts stopped a few feet away.
"I hope you had a good night's rest." Rodan smiled eerily. "I dreamed of cheese and mice and stuff. And touched myself."
"Where are the girls?" Felix demanded. "They couldn't possibly be in a dungeon. That's crazy talk!"
"Uh, we mean to say, do you wish to talk to us about other matters?" asked Isaac, quickly stepping past Felix. "I don't give a crap about Jenna, Mia and Sheba."
"Not quite," Rodan grinned nastily, "But you all seem to be formidable warriors. Do you believe yourself to be?"
"Yes, we're the best!" declared Garet, wincing as Ivan kicked his leg. Adepts weren't allowed to think of themselves as strong. They were meant to think of themselves as weak, puny and inferior to those that couldn't use Psynergy. Dragons? What dragons?
"We believe ourselves to be good warriors, and we have yet to meet a foe mightier than us." Isaac said seriously. Cocky, isn't he? Dullahan was nothing.
"We have a good degree of knowledge when it comes to duelling." added Picard. "Except Mia, but she's not here anyway."
"I see," Rodan placed his hands on his hips and chuckled menacingly, "Well, I wish to duel you later. Please meet at one o'clock sharp in the Colosseum, well-equipped. I shall be waiting. Guards, take them out."
The guards hastily obeyed, leading the Adepts out and they stood there in the hallway.
"He's playing games with us!" shouted Garet. "I hope he's got Monopoly!"
"Be quiet, Garet. We must return to the bedroom and have sex get ready." Ivan shot a quick glare in the Mars Adept's direction.
"I'm gonna kill him!" shouted Felix. "Why haven't we done that yet?"
"Not if I kill him first!" grinned Alex. "Because we're idiots."
"You shut up too." Picard shoved him gently. He was a wimp.
"No way, I'm gonna kill him first." Felix argued.
"No, me!" Alex argued.
The others started walking away to the bedroom, and eventually Felix and Alex realised they were being left behind so they quickly ran after them.
"Your breakfast is served." A guard opened the door and
slid a tray along the floor before rushing back out and
locking the door behind him. He was so fast, nobody
had time to even use their Psynergy on him.
"Thanks." said Jenna sarcastically, rushing to examine the tray. She was anorexic. Mia and Sheba also came over and looked curiously at this odd phenomenon.
"Sausages, bacon, eggs... there's not much of it either." Sheba looked disappointed.
"Not kidding, it's for one person!" Mia shouted angrily. "And here I was, trying to be like Garet! I wanted to eat a lot!"
"We can still share it, it should delay starvation a little bit longer." Jenna grabbed a knife and fork, and they sat around the tray picking out their fair share and also wondering what was happening elsewhere. The guys were probably having a hot orgy.
Everyone was restless for the rest of the morning
so they had orgies. Lunch was a quiet affair. Not
even Garet said very much. They were too busy thinking of
their duel with the weak and puny inferior being
that was Rodan, and what would become of Jenna,
Sheba and Mia. Either way, their fate didn't seem pleasant
to them. When it was almost one o'clock, the guys retreated
to their bedroom for more sex and started
planning some more. They would have to use their skills as
well as possible, in both swordplay and use of Psynergy.
Rodan was obviously a force to be reckoned with, he would
not fall so easily. Because Psynergy doesn't work so
well on non-Psynergy using foes, right?
The clock chimed one, and some of them shivered.
"It sounds like a bell..." Garet shivered.
"Sounds like a knell more like." shuddered Alex. "And yes, I have an overactive imagination."
"Stop talking like that." Picard glared at them.
"Are we all ready?" asked Felix, finally.
"I'm as ready as ever." Isaac said honestly.
"The sooner we get this over with, the better." Ivan said. "He will pay for interfering with my planned trip to Gap."
The Colosseum had not changed much since the days of Colosso. The Adepts marched nervously through the many stone corridors, escorted by the guards. Their footsteps echoed loudly as they walked, growing louder in their minds as they got closer to the place where they would come to blows with Lord Rodan of Tolbi. None of them were certain if they would come out alive... or not. Ooh, foreshadowing! But none of them pointed this out. They were already worried about the girls, and didn't have time for cowards who were scared of weak, puny humans. Nobody was going to back out of this situation. Ivan had led them all directly into it and they had to get themselves out. It's all Ivan's fault!
Rodan stood upon a large raised podium in the middle of a wide, circular room. He was clad from head to foot in armor, and had a large shield and a long, pointed sword. His mean eyes glinted as he watched the door. Any minute now, those mere children, as he thought them to be, would come walking through that wide stone door, and he would take pleasure in fighting them, and hopefully killing them. If they actually beat him with Psynergy? Never!, the Adepts he had placed in the dungeons would still be killed anyway. He didn't believe for a second that he would lose. That was to be his major downfall, his great weakness, the fact that he was overconfident. The Adepts are awfully unconfident as well.
The stone door slowly creaked open, and two guards
entered. They stepped aside to let the six Adepts in. The
six of them stood on the carpeted pathway, glaring directly
at Rodan. Rodan sneered and stepped off the podium.
"I am glad to see you are punctual. Today we shall duel to the death, and see who is truly the mightiest."
"WHERE are Jenna and the others?" demanded Felix angrily. He wasn't going to let Isaac shut him up now.
"In the cells." answered Rodan. "You honestly couldn't figure that out for yourself?"
"What do you intend to do to them?" asked Isaac faintly.
"Lose, and they will suffer too, of course. Beat me and they suffer anyway."
"WHAT?" Picard was astounded. An evil guy, doing something that evil? That's insane!
"You dirty lowlife!" screamed Garet.
"Hold it!" shouted Ivan, "Let's just concentrate on beating him THEN decide what to do, right?"
"I don't like that plan!" Garet snarled at him.
"Stop it, Garet." said Isaac firmly.
"Alex..." whispered Felix, "You can still warp, can't you?"
"Course I can." Alex whispered back. "I'm not Mia."
"If we kill him, warp to the dungeons or at least follow any guards going there, and try and get them out." Felix whispered.
"Gotcha." said Alex.
"Are you ready now?" asked Rodan, drawing his sword and
holding it in front of himself, tip to forehead.
Then he suddenly was startled and impaled his brain.
"Ready as ever!" declared Isaac, as if it had become his motto. It needs to be said more than once before it can be a motto...
"Bring it on." Felix drew his Sol Blade. One Megiddo should be enough to take a weak and puny human down, right?
Everyone drew forwards their weapons, ready to face off against the mighty Rodan. It was literally going to be a fight to the death, a terrible war of swordplay and Psynergy. Adepts using Psynergy? Say it isn't so!
Metal clashed against metal, loud clangs ringing out
across the duel room. Orders were rapidly shouted out, and
everyone moved back and forth, jumping from the swing of a
blade or aiming their Psynergy. Swords quickly became
useless against Rodan's strong, impenetrable armour and
everyone started using their Psynergy instead. Luckily,
there were a few Psy crystals in reserve in case anybody's
Psynergy began to run out. Because it takes a hell
of a lot of Psynergy to bring down a human. Rodan
battled on, tireless and fuelled by his loathing
of Adepts. He was bloodthirsty and ruthless, not hesitating to spill blood. Luckily, none was spilled yet for not even Garet was stupid enough to let Rodan's sword get too close. But Mia might have been if she was there. >_>
Half-way through the battle, some of the Adepts were beginning to grow tired of being weak and useless. It was then that Ivan had an idea. "Let's actually use our power instead of being weaklings!" He quickly got hold of Garet and whispered urgently in his ear. Garet understood and they leapt back into the fray, a new plan formed.
It is not a good idea to be completely clad in metal armor, and be up against a Mars Adept who knows what to do. Metal radiates heat, and it can grow to intense levels, effectively heating anything near it. In fact, it creates an effect much like an oven does when it bakes food inside it. Thanks for the lesson! Garet was effectively roasting Rodan, thanks to Ivan's idea, by relentlessly casting Pyroclasm over and over again. Isaac and Felix helped him by casting several Grand Gaias as well. It really shouldn't take so many Grand Gaias and Pyroclasms. Picard and Alex concentrated on healing, and Ivan used some Psy Crystals to restore Psynergy to those who needed it. Which can't be many because apparently they were using weak spells before.
Eventually, the terrible Lord Rodan of Tolbi fell,
slumping to the floor, exhausted and burning up and
wondering why the hell the Adepts were so weak. His
helmet rolled off, his singed dark hair spreading onto the
carpet. His face was dark with burn marks and his expression
was twisted fury.
"You may have beat me," he snarled, "But you'll still LOSE!"
"Alex, go!" Felix commanded. Alex didn't wait, he was quickly gone. He was getting quite used to being ordered around. The guards frantically rushed out, heading towards the dungeons. Isaac pointed the Gaia Blade at Rodan's neck. He's STILL using that? No wonder he sucks so much.
"Give us one good reason why we SHOULDN'T kill you!"
"Because then I will transform into a monster upon my death, destroy Tolbi and you'll have to fight me all over again." Rodan chuckled and reached under his chain mail suit, pulling out a vial of liquid. Isaac nervously drew back the Gaia Blade.
"I was not defeated, I killed myself!" crowed Rodan, gulping down the poison.
"Well, THAT made our job easy!" Garet smirked.
"Phew, I really wouldn't want us branded as murderers." Ivan smiled in relief. Taking your foe's life in battle so you can save your lives in the future is murder? ... Okay, I can understand why people wouldn't believe them if they ever explained, but...
"May you rot in hell." Picard said, glaring down at the dying Rodan.
"Loser." added Felix triumphantly.
The Adepts quickly rushed out of the door, and soon they
were exiting the Colosseum and walking into Tolbi. People
were in an uproar, one of the guards had spread around the
word that Lord Rodan had been killed. But the Tolbians were
not upset, they were celebrating.
"Long live Colosso, may it return!" called an excited Tolbian.
"Buy souvenirs, buy sweets, buy what you desire!" called a cheerful man, standing behind a stall stacked with all kinds of goods. That was fast, wasn't it?
"Hear, hear, Lord Rodan has gone!" a happy girl called out to the Adepts as if it wasn't obvious enough already. They smiled back and continued onwards to the palace.
Mia, Jenna and Sheba waited impatiently in the cell. They
still didn't know what was happening.
"I hope Felix, Isaac and everyone are alright." fretted Jenna, rattling the bars uselessly.
"What about us?" Sheba grumbled, "We're stuck here and it's still freezing cold, and we're still indecent. Can I PLEASE take off my clothes?"
"If you think being in pyjamas is bad, what would you say if we were undressed?" snapped the irritated Mia. "Actually, I would like that. Take off your clothes."
"Mia, don't share that image with us, that's inappropriate," Jenna glared at her, "I am totally not a lesbian." then turned back to staring through the barred window of the door, "ANYBODY THERE? LET US OUT AT ONCE!"
"I do not deserve to be treated like this, this is not right. I am a goddess and I expect to be treated like one!" Sheba slumped against the wall, dropping to the ground and burying her head in her hands with a frustrated sigh.
"I shall aid you out of here, we must hurry." said Alex, warping into the centre of the cell. "Why the hell didn't I just do this before?"
"ALEX!" shouted Mia and Sheba.
"They are coming!" shouted Jenna, just as loud footsteps started ringing across the hall. Several guards were walking towards the cell door, "Alex, you'd BETTER have a good plan up your sleeve. Warping us out isn't a good plan, apparently."
"I was hoping to be quicker than this." admitted Alex, moving towards the door and staying out of sight. Jenna stepped away from the door, watching the guards nervously as the door opened.
"Hello, Lord Rodan has been killed," a guard explained, "So we have to kill you."
"Why?" asked Mia.
"He ordered us to." The guard stepped threateningly towards them, while other guards started moving into the cells.
"I'M INDECENT, DON'T COME IN HERE!" screamed Sheba. "For shame! Seeing a fourteen year old girl in a nightgown! May your eyeballs shrivel up and you burn in hell!"
"Sheba, you are giving me a headache!" complained Mia.
"Try it," Jenna glared furiously at the guard, "Try your best."
The guard slowly drew his sword but he wasn't quick enough. Jenna had already cast Fume Dragon and knocked him down. "I've had an amazing idea! Let's use our Psynergy!" He lay on the floor twitching erratically. The other guards cried aloud as Alex flew at them, his twin blades flying as he started attacking like crazy. Jenna, Mia and Sheba also leaped forwards, using random Psynergy *gasp* Mia uses PSYNERGY? to fight the guards. More than half of them were down and the remainders fled screaming at the top of their lungs. The victorious Adepts started running in case any more guards came.
Luckily, nobody was accosted. Frankly, just about everybody was happy that Rodan was gone and were happy to let the Tolbians, and their guests, do as they pleased. The girls returned to the bedroom, and there was also a happy reunion- and the girls were able to get dressed, much to Sheba's delight. Okay, Sheba apparently has a freaky clothes fetish. They decided to stay in Tolbi for a while, mainly because everybody wanted them to, for slaying the terrible Rodan. It was decided that the Adepts would return to Vale the day after.
That night, Ivan dreamt he was standing in front of Vale,
and everybody was looking at him and cheering at him.
Even though he hadn't really done much to be useful.
<Well done for saving the Adepts, Ivan, though you didn't do that much. your legacy will live on in Adept lore. May the wielders of Psynergy live on for a good many years. And tell Mia to USE her damn Psynergy!>
"I thank you too," whispered Ivan, "For letting me see the future."
<I AM you...>
"Oh yeah..." Ivan rubbed the back of his head, sweatdropping (OMG, anime!) in embarassment. Then his future self gave in and they had wild buttsex.
I REALLY didn't expect it to be so long. But I'm pleased with it. I'm not. That's why I'm rewriting this piece of crap.
Felix: Everytime you come up with a simple idea, it grows out of proportion.
But that's a good thing, isn't it? ^^' Is it?
Felix: I guess it is.
