My adventure in a fantasy world
- 11.2K words
Everything is going as usual, my life, my job, everything is the same.... or so I had thought until on that fateful day, that happened, A portal opened in the sky, there were some people coming out of it, they were wearing strange clothes and were flying up in the sky, they did something, something which couldn't be classified in any scientific method, they did something which we refer to as ' magic ' in our world and their faces were all over the world broadcasted on every television and mirrors, and even as holograms, They announced that they are not here to harm anyone, they merely are waiting for someone, that someone will get a mark on his hand, a person who is said to be the prophecies hope, a hero that will be blessed by the star constellation, They will be waiting here only for 2 days, then they will leave, right as they said that, they disappeared right after, 2 days later..... There was a light, a light coming from my house that gave me the shivers, I rush to the house to find that my little brother has a mark on his hand, The moment I try to reach for his hand I am thrown away by one of those people who used magic that came into this world, they argued back and forth, one told the other to apologise for being disrespectful to me, the hero's big brother, they all apologised to me and then asked my little brother to come with them, my parents stopped them and asked if it's possible to transfer that mark on any other child, there wasn't, they asked them try to use different methods and transfer the mark onto someone else, there wasn't, the people Apologized and said they have to take him, their planet is in danger and they need my brother, the prophecies hero to help them, my parents cried and didn't wanted to let him go, I asked the people if his work there is done, will he return back ? They said yes, I asked them if it was ok with them would they take me ? They said that I'm weak, even if my brother dies, he will be sent back to his world regardless of the way he die but if I were to die there, I will not return, I said I'm ready for what's to come, they talked among themselves and finally agreed to take me with them, I promised my parents 2 things before I go away, first I'll come back alive, second I will bring my brother back with me, What I didn't thought about was that one thing and that led to my worst fear, the people of their world, I thought they will be trustworthy, I thought they will stay by my brother's side but who would have thought that they will be the one's to ruin my entire life and make it miserable to the point that I actually wished that I died.
Chapter 1 The present, past and the start of it all
The clashing of swords and blades that gives goosebumps to even the gods and constellations while they just watch the war go on,
" Brother- No...The general of demons, Raphael, even after your comrades have been defeated, you do not stop....tell me. "
" Was this the only way ? "
" All those sacrifices, all those people- The innocents getting killed and the damned demons committing those atrocious crimes. "
" Tell me… Why do you still want to fight me ? "
" Why do you even after all this time, all those deaths, all those sacrifices, all those lives, after all of it, why do you still want to fight us !!! "
" Why won't you… why won't you just end this already and return with me, to the place that we promised to go together, to the place that we call home, to the place where our parents are waiting for us to return. "
" Tell me, For what reason do you keep on fighting ? "
The boy- No, the man in front of me says and asked me while he looks down with his eyes begging for me to give an answer,
" Ah- I'm almost out of mana too.... "
I mumbled to myself,
Is he avoiding making eye contact with me ? Well not that it matters, nothing really matters at this point...oh right the answer to his questions,
" Rei, the chosen one, the hero of justice and the one who will bring peace, the prophecies hope and my little brother, you say that demons are evil….yeah ? Evil, Rotten to the core and blah blah nonsense. "
" Your very people- they commited crimes more horrible than any other races including us and you have the audacity my dear little brother ? "
" Oh and let's not forget about your comrades and your fucking track record too, framing me and declaring me a traitor, not taking my side, your comrades almost killing me, oh and let's not forget about that too, killing and buying demon slaves ? Really ? You yourself are corrupted to the bone and you dare say you are righteous !!! "
" You killed my comrades- No, you killed the people that I think of as my family, and you still fucking dare say we killed the innocents and we are evil ??? "
" I thought you out of everyone else would be at least better Rei, but I guess your kind is really that bad, they even made you believe that I… No, we were evil. "
" You didn't even think for a second about that and put a blade on my neck the moment I tried to say something on that day and if you would have just… just listened to me, things would be different. "
" No, it doesn't matter, I won't let you and your people take anything away from me ever again. "
I said to Rei in anger and took out my blades and got into a stance to perform my final attack with what little mana I had left in me,
" That's enough, I must have been a fool to expect that you still think of me as your brother, I will not let you keep babbling on bad things about my comrades, I will protect them and the people of my kingdom. "
" Even if that means that I have to kill you and your entire race along with it, brother "
Rei takes out his holy sword and puts on his defensive equipment and helmet,
Looks like this will be the last,
" For the people that I love and think of as my family !!! "
I yell out my final war cry while getting ready to attack.
" For the kingdom and the peace that I desire !!! "
Rei yells out while getting ready to attack too.
" I will kill you and bring victory for as long as I'm alive !!!!!! "
Both Rei and I let out a final war cry and then started to run at each other and our weapons finally clashed,
This story goes back in time several years from this point.
The start of everything, when I saw them,
Everyone has thought about this at least once or sometimes in their lifetime,
What if there are people or creatures living in another world or in another universe that invaded our planet ???
What if there are things that we have yet to discover about them but can't because we were not aware of how to explore them ???
There are many reasons for that to happen,
First, it's because they knew that they were not alone but we didn't and they wanted to inform us about them and the others,
Second, the lifeforms or living creatures on every planet in our universe has died and we are the only remaining survivors so they came to us to tell us about the thing we should be aware of,
Third, just because we discovered a way to travel through planets to universes, they came to warn us because we were taking it too lightly,
Or Fourth, They came to us to find help so that someone or something could help them save their planet.
You would have already guessed it by now, for me it was the fourth,
It all happened on that day,
Year 2041, August 17th,
" Do you want to buy this or not ? "
The shopkeeper asked me with a straight face,
" Well how about you lower the price a little bit then ? You are seriously trying to sell me this locket for 10 dollars ? It shouldn't be worth more than 6 dollars though ? "
I said to the shopkeeper with a straight face too,
" Ok fine, give me the 6 dollars and take this locket. "
The shopkeeper gave me the locket and took out his hand to take the money.
" I only have 5 dollars tho ? "
I said to the shopkeeper,
" Urgh- 5 dollars it is then, now don't you dare try to make any excuses boy. "
The shopkeeper gave me an annoyed look while saying it,
" Yeah yeah alright. "
I then handed him the 5 dollars and started to make my way to my house,
" Hehe, the shopkeeper noticed huh ? Well whatever, I don't know the reason why I bought this though, oh right I had some extra money that I saved from the past week, it looks shiny and it matches the colour of my eyes too, though it's a bit darker, it's fine I guess. "
