lonely figure walked down the dark streets of Atlas City. The figure bore a long
black cloak and the hood cowered its face. There was a pear of twin swords
strapped over the shoulders. The figure walked faster. There was someone
following, and now the thing or person was catching up.
that thing newer going to give up? This is really starting to get on my nerves.”
The figure stopped walking. And turned around.
show yourself! I don’t have time for this any longer!” There was no reply.
The street’s was empty and quiet. “Com’on already, I know you are back
there!” Now there was something mowing around, and came around the corner and
it was not a pretty site. The figure took a step back. “Damn, I wasn’t
prepared for this.” It was a Mazuko, well it was a lesser Mazuko but still...
suddenly the Mazuko charged. The figure got the swords out just in time. Well
not quite, the Mazuko came whit to mush power and the figure fell to the ground
and the sword’s flue to the other side. “Shit! Damn Mazuko. You are really
asking four it, FIRE...BALL!”
fare from the battle there was 3 other figures. One short redhead dressed in a
sorceress outfit, a tall blond swordsman and a sorcerer dressed all in beige.
With a hood up and a mask covering the lower half of his face. “Hey, Lina.
What is all that noise about?” The swordsman pointed in the direction of the
blast. “How should I know Gourry? I really don’t care. I just want to get to
an Inn and go to sleep.”
sounded like a Fireball. We should cheek it out.” The redhead glared at her
friend. “WE don’t have to do anything Zel. It’s not our problem. You can
do as you wish, I going to go to an Inn.” After she said that there was
another blast, bigger this time. Lina looked at the ally where the blast had
come from. “Ok we can go and see what’s going on. I don’t want to wake up
in the morning and find out that the town is all burned down. Lets go!”
Zelgadis just shook his head, and followed his friends down the road in a
half-run. When they retched the ally they saw a badly beaten figure and a weary
ugly Mazuko. The person who was fighting the monster was holding it’s shoulder
and was bleeding badly from it. Then the person was hit again, this time the
person didn’t stand up. Lina and the other was preparing to attack when the
person threw the 2 swords at the monster and then cast a Ra Tilt and then the
Mazuko was gone. The 2 swords fell to the ground whit a cling. “How did he
managed to do that in shuts short time?” Lina asked out loud. “Lina I think
he needs help.” Gourry said and got Lina’s attention. He was right. The
person really needed som help. The person was trying to stand up but was shaking
badly. They rushed forward and Zel was the one to catch the person who suddenly
fell. The hood still covered the face but the cloak was spread out and the tunic
was torn apart at some places. And Gourry made an observation and just blurred
it out as always. “Lina I don’t think that’s a guy.” He said and pointed
at the person’s chest. “Good observation Gourry, didn’t you think I
Gourry started but Lina cut him off. “Don’t bother to answer. Just get the
swords.” Gourry just nodded and went to get the swords.
let’s take a look at this mystic girl.” Lina said and moved to pull back the
hood. But was suprised when the girl suddenly moved and grabbed her hand.
“Don’t you dare.” Lina tried to pull her hand back but the girl held it in
a firm grip. “Hey blue boy, you can put me down now.” Zel just then realized
that he was still holding the girl, and rather clumsy put her down. “Thank
you. Do you know were my swords are redhead?” Lina stared at the girl and gave
her an angry glare. “Gourry are getting them fore you. Can you let go of my
hand now?” the girl eyed her and let go of Lina’s hand. “Call your friend
over here.” “Do you think you can give me orders? You got to be joking.”
“I’m deadly serious. If you don’t call him here I will.” Lina didn’t
say anything. “Ok then. Hey you Gourry. Come here will you?” Gourry turned
around from the wall he was studying and walked over to the others. “What?”
“Gourry do you got my swords?” Gourry nodded and handed her the swords.
“Thank you. Now I’ll be going.” She started walking and when she past Zel
he grabbed her hood and pulled it down. “Hey what do you think you are doing?
Would you like it if I pulled your hood down?” Everyone was staring at her.
She took a step back and pulled her hood back up. “What are you staring at?”
Zel was the first one to recover.
me? What did you call me?” Lina and the others just stared. “Amelia. What
ells should we call you? Hey when did you get the swords, and what happened to
you face?” Lina asked. The girl just stared at her, when suddenly she grabbed
her shoulder in pain. “Amelia are you all right?” Gourry asked. The girl
stood up straight and mumbled a spell under her breath. Her hand started glowing
with a silvery glow and soon her wound was healed. “I’m not the one you call
Amelia. And for the other questions, it’s non-of your business.” “But if
you aren’t Amelia.... who are you?” Zel ask when she was beginning to walk
away again. She turned around and faced him. “Well I’m not the one you think
I am. But if you so badly want to know, my name is Chiana.” She looked him in
the eyes and he almost took a step away from her. But now he knew she was
telling the truth. It was her eyes that told him, they were really dark-red.
Almost as dark as black. And her face was scarred. “If you excuse me I’ll be
going now. And this time don’t try to stop me.” She turned away from Zel and
started walking. Lina tried to get her attention, but this time she didn’t
care. When she came around the corner she cast a Ray Wing to get away fast from
them. “What a weird bunch of people. Damn that Mazuko hit me hard.” She held
her shoulder in pain. She wasn’t able to heal it fully. When she was several
blocks away she landed and looked up the nearest Inn and went inside.
a weird girl. But I must say that I really thought that was Amelia. They look
exactly the same.” Lina said. Zel shook his head. “No Lina. They don’t
look exactly the same. Didn’t you notice her eyes?” Lina just stared at him.
“No. What was it with her eyes?” “Amelia have blue eyes, Chiana have read
almost black eyes. And her face is scarred.” Lina looked at him and grinned.
“Well, you were weary observant. I didn’t notice any of that.” A blush
crept across Zel’s face and he looked away from Lina. “Well thats not a
suprice. You don’t notice anything that isn’t food ore treasure.” Now Lina
got really mad and hit Zel in the head. The only thing she hurt was herself.
“Well that was stupid. You know that my skin is stone, you can’t hurt me.”
Lina was hopping around and shaking her hand franticly. “OWOWOWOWOWOWWOW. That
hurts.” Gourry just looked at them and didn’t get a thing. But that was
nothing new. Zel just surged and began walking. “Hey, were are you going?”
“I’m going to an Inn. Are you guys coming or what?” Lina shook her hand
one more time and then followed her blue friend. “Hey Gourry, are you coming
to?” Gourry nodded and follow them. The thing they missed was the wanted
poster on the wall behind them. It was of a girl that wore a black hood and had
went to the nearest table and sat down. She kept her hood up because she
didn’t want any people to recognize her. And part because she was ashamed to
show her face. “What would you like?” A young waitress asked. Chiana got a
little startled but recovered quickly. “Today’s special and some water.”
The waitress wrote quickly on her pad. “Anything ells?” “No, that’s
fine.” The waitress gave her a nod and went to take some other orders. She
settled back in the chair and took out a peace of paper. “Why must things like
this happen to me?” She was looking at one of the posters. They were allover
the city. “I’m leaving this town tomorrow. I can’t stay here any longer.”
“And why is that?” Chiana quickly put the poster in her pocket, and turned
to face the voice. “That’s non-of your business.” The stranger looked at
her, well sort-of. His eyes were closed. “Maybe it isn’t. Dos it have
anything to do with that you are on wanted posters allover the city?” “Keep
it down or I will really hurt you.” Chiana hissed. “If you like, we can go
som-were ells to talk.” He took hold of her wounded shoulder and then they
both phased out. Seconds later the waitress came up to the table China had been
siting at. “Hey were did she go? Why must things like this happen to me? And
at my first day at work.”
