Chapter 1: The End to a new Beginning 

 

“A-are we going to die” I say looking over at my life long friend. His face down not looking at me he nods slowly as the world turns dark.

 

I awake in my room looking around. Gasping for air I grip at my chest I hold my heart. Was it just a dream I think still looking around my room. “I guess it was just a dream after all” I say letting out a deep breathe. Rising from my bed I head to my mirror. “Today is the martial arts tournament” looking at the calendar near my mirror I smile slightly. “Alright guess it’s time to do my best today is the day I win” looking at the picture of me and my friend as children. “I’ll show you that I’m stronger we will no longer tie” walking out of my room and towards the shower. After showering I quickly run downstairs to the kitchen grabbing a piece of toast, my bag and bokken rushing out of the door. As the crowd of students engulf me I shift to a walk. “SHIROOO” a soft female voice calls me from behind. I turn my head around searching for the person the voice cane from. “Good morning yae” I say as she catches up to me in the crowd. Good morning Shiro” she says through a smile. It’s become regular that she catches me in the morning no since her confession. 

~flashback~ standing behind the gym I run my hands through my hair. “I know why she called me out here but...” I sigh kicking over a small rock. I look up watching as she walks around the corner. Our eyes meet but it was not who I was expecting. It was yae my senpai in sword training. “Y-Yae is that you where you the one who called me here” I look at her our eyes meeting briefly until she looks away. “I have something I want to tell” her face blushes. “Shiro please go out with me” she says with a bow and I feel a pain in my heart. “Yae I like you I really do but I’m not right for you” putting my face in the ground. ~flashback over~ 

Walking to class with one of the most beautiful in the school was fun. She also smart and athletic I couldn’t believe when she asked me out I wanted to accept but she deserves better.

Sliding open the classroom door I can sense his bloodlust coming quickly drawing my bokken. Both swords clash and a smirk escape both of our lips. “I see your excited for today’s tournament huh...Híroÿ” I say as he hops away. “I see you’ve kept up your training” híroÿ says. The smirk on his face told it all he was as excited for the marital arts tournament as I was and seeing how stocked he was made my fire ride. “Our match will be the finally huh I won’t accept you to lose to anyone else but me” I say looking at him with intensity. “Oh shouldn’t you be more worried about losing yourself Shiro” says a familiar female voice from behind. “Oh Y?sûrah their is no one who’s trained as hard as I have for this” i say pointing to the fresh scar above my eye “I’ve been waiting for the moment that me and him can have an actual spar without tying.” Y?sûrah is híroÿ’s girlfriend and I don’t see how he has come to enjoy his youth so much but he seems happy. Making my way over to my seat the usual chatter start. Mostly things about how me and híroÿ could possible be friends when we differ so but it’s a valid reasoning why. It’s because we strive to be the best we are best friends but also we are rivals. We push each other to extend past the boundaries that most people would give up at. Every since we were young we’ve wanted to become stronger for different reasons. Mine was to protect what family I have left which is only my little sister. When I was 7 years old my house was broken into by some big time mob bosses because my father was some very important person but him, mom or my older brother never said a thing to me about what he did. Until that night I was told that he ran a pretty shady business and had taken out a lot of loans. I was told to take my 3 year old little sister and hide somewhere. But I no longer have those memories all I see now is the mutilated corpses laying their and my little sister crying. From that moment on I made her a promise that I will protect her that nothing bad will ever happen to her. It’s been 11 years since then and we’ve been living pretty well I take care of the house and work while also training in different things. While she relaxes and enjoys life I know that she hasn’t forgotten what has happened but the fact that I know I can get her to smile makes me all the happier. As the school bell rings for home room the teacher enters and all the students take their seat. Looking over the class he calls out me and híroÿ for today’s national tournament and sends us on our way. As we walk through the halls to the gymnasium more and more students enter the halls each with there own weapon or style of choice. [looks like today will be a lot of fun I can’t let my guard down] the words slip through my mind a slight smirk rest on my face. After entering the gymnasium the face of the other 50 opponents stretch out with a bracket on the wall to the left. Stepping onto the mat my first match was a simple matter his speed and accuracy was less than mine giving him a simple knock out was enough. Most of the matches ending that way until the quarter finals. In this match up I met up with my senior in kendo and after each of us drew our swords the match began. This match up was not like the others we clashed swords for 4 minutes with a mix of feints and strikes but in the end my mixed training was to much for his. After switching from kendo I made use of my capoeira training to keep him on the defensive. After that the match was decided after 5 minutes I had won. Then the semi finals were next but this match was a little easier instead of using kendo I stuck with judo and capoeira and used my speed and flexibility to dance around him exhausting his stamina and casually I gave him a quick kick and he was out. [i think it’s best not to waste any stamina híroÿ is next and that match will be the end] my mind flutters as me and híroÿ take the stage. The final match is set for ten minutes and of the bat we both charge in. Exchanging blows and match fist and kicks for around five minutes we were evenly matched. Switching stances we both swapped to our kendo sticks and charged in once again clashing swords with a loud bang and again we swap clash casually hitting each other or parrying or clashing. The match ended with a tie and we both breathe heavily as we shake hands. “Well I guess today was another tie” I say scratching the back of my head. We both let out a chuckle and walk of the stage. After the award ceremony we decided to go have some dinner at a nearby restaurant little to our knowledge did we know that we wouldn’t make it. Walking through the street the dark presence from behind got more and more sinister. Taking a back alley we wait for the mysterious people as they round the count I count atleast 20. “You think you can get away with a stunt like that in the tournament” says one of the mysterious people and they all pull out a gun each and take aim. “Well I guess it’s no point in saying we can get outta her unscathed” my voice was stern and unwavering. We both charge them prepared for our last and as our first step hits the ground they all start firing. Falling to the ground holding my chest the hot liquid falls to the ground and I look over and híroÿ has fallen to. “Is this the end I wasn’t ready” my voice goes weak and I fall everything going dark. 

 

 

 

Chapter 2: The Rebirth and Training 

 

As my world is engulfed in darkness a sweet voice reaches out for me. “Young heroes it’s your time to awaken and start your journey” the mysterious voice says. My body feels like it’s floating in a void of space collecting nearby energy. It feels like my body was being charged up like a battery. My surrounds start to show around me but I know my eyes are still closed it’s like my senses are becoming more sensitive to the things around me. After slowly opening my eyes I look around the room is a big Japanese style dojo with a few pillars around. The person sitting in front of me was beautiful as if she was a goddess her hair was pure white with slight gold highlights and her eyes were gold. Her long hair was complemented by her caramel colored skin she also wore a light blue and green kimono. “Good morning shiro I am Kokono a world god” a light smile appears on her face. Rubbing my eyes I look at her again my face turns sad. My mind starts to wonder about everything I’ve done. “So is this where I get judged on my life” I say letting out a deep sigh. “Actually I have a mission for you and I’ve summoned you here for that reason” kokono says while handing me two little boxes and an envelope. I take a letter out the envelope and start to read it. It entails of a place where they are under attack from a being called the dimensional they trace through the void to take over different planets and dimensions to grow in power and they’ve targeted this dimensional plane. After reading the note I take the two boxes and open them up each holds a dual wield weapon. On the left is a gun that looks like a gun blade that kokono tells me can switch into any weapon I’m thinking of. On the right holds a double edge scythe that looks like something a demon would hold you can feel the energy pulsating off of it. I choose the dual wield guns and grab the holster for them. I’m glad that it’s not a waist holster and it’s more like a backpack. “I’ll be giving you your magic prowess and sending you to the training area then I’ll give your friend his gear” I bow down in front of her and she places her hand on my head after being surround in a warm gold light the guns on my waist light up. After she takes her hand of my hand I stand and walk to the next room over. As I was walking out I could hear híroÿ waking up. After meeting in the other room with híroÿ. after his meeting another person descended upon us he claims that he would be our trainer for the next year. He introduced himself as muray. he was sent to make sure our perception and observation skills weren’t weak. Throwing each of us a wooden sword and a shield he tells us that we train everyday for 12 hours then clean til it’s time to sleep. Today was an easy day and by easy I mean totally cruel he beat us til we could barely walk. Each time we tried to stand he knocked us back down. Compared to the people of earth our strength paled in comparison to his. No matter what we tried together or separately we got knocked down. On the first day after 5 hours of combat training we had 7 hours out endurance and strength training. After our bodies were ran rugged and dry from training and exhaustion set in we had to clean the dojo. After the cleaning we set up some mats and closed our eyes for a good nights sleep and immediately after laying down the exhaustion set in and my body relaxed. Waking up the next morning the ground under me felt unsteady and rugged like I was sleeping on rocks. Opening my eyes I see the top of trees looking around to a forest venue. Grasping at my chest the air seems thinner and it’s getting harder to breathe like we’re on the peak of a mountain. Looking over at híroÿ their was a note sitting on the ground next to us it read that we must make it off the mountain or risk suffocation. Standing up I wake up híroÿ and we get up and start to traverse the mountain stepping forward a flurry of arrows fly down at us jumping out of the way quickly. Quickly looking around I notice that making it off this mountain will not be that easy. As we traversed the mountain dying of suffocating was the least of our worries each and every step we took found us in another trap that could take our life if we weren’t careful. After grabbing a branch off a tree and swiping down multiple arrows that come our way we continue down the mountain. After reaching the bottom of the mountain the fatigue was shown on our faces we where covered in sud and dirt and the branches we grabbed we broken. Looking up we see our training instructor and he throws us each our weapons. “You’ve made it down the mountain but the sun hasn’t set yet so now more training” the expression on our face change and we both look at each other as if we are about to collapse. 

 

Chapter 3 Training and Summoning 

We’ve been training for a little over 4 months now and today we practice magic and we summon beast. After learning that the goddess has blessed us with the ability of each but we both have different strengths. I am stronger in darkness fire and earth magic while híroÿ is stronger in light lightening and water magic we both step outside to the garden. A dark purple circle and a bright goal circle has been drawn on the ground in front of us and the goddess kokono stands before us. “Shiro you have the strongest darkness attribute so you have this one” she says pointing to the dark purple circle on the ground. I nod and step forward feeling a presence of dark energy. “So the light gold circle must be mine then” stepping forward híroÿ says looking at the bright gold light before his eyes. “Now then put your hands over the circle and concentrate on the strongest beast that you can think of” our instructor says and we both then concentrate and the magic circle fills with the respective power each. A big black smoke forms in mine while a shiny bright light shines from híroÿs circle that is almost blinding. After a little while a loud roar comes from each and the form of a huge black dragon shows in mine and a large white tiger forms in híroÿ circle. “Does a lowly human summon me into this realm I will render your bones to ashes” the black dragon says in a loud roar sending a shockwave throughout the garden. “I feel as tho these humans have a different spirit within them don’t take them likely black monarch” says the white tiger looking over at híroÿ her head cocked lightly. Looking over at each me and híroÿ looking at kokono with a puzzled face. “These are your summon beast you must see if you can earn their respect each is a híroÿ yours is a heavenly beast while shiro yours looks like a demonic beast it’ll be tough for you to earn her respect” she says taking a seat on a bench then looking at us. “Do you really believe you can defeat me human I and the great dragon that has ascended to that of God hood and I will not be disrespected” she growls at me. I smack my lips slightly and chuckle a bit feeling underestimated. Looking at híroÿ he appears to be having an easier time he must only show how powerful his attributes for the light and wind categories are and they are already pretty strong because of training. A big bright light gathers and shoots towards the sky sending a big shock knocking the white tiger back into a wall. Laughing slightly I look at the black dragon her mouth dropping open and I laugh. “So what’ll you have me do black dragon must I fight or will you surrender here” I say a light smirk among my face. “Just because your companion has amazing magic doesn’t mean...” she starts talking but I release my magic power sending her back sticking her to a wall laughing slightly before she can finish. “Now then what’ll it be I’m up for a fight I’m sick of losing to my instructor” I say but they both now to us. “We have seen your prowess and we deem you worthy please mark us and make us your summoned companion” they say their heads to the ground. “Well you both have gotten some strong companions and now all you have to do is give them the your mark and name them by marking them you after giving your thumb a little cut place it on their head” she says handing each of us a little knife. We take them cutting our thumbs placing it on their forehead a bright red mark appears on the black dragons forehead. “I hereby name you kyoko” I say and the black dragon flies out of the circle and lands next to me. After placing his thumb on the white tiger a bright gold mark appears on his forehead and híroÿ gives her the name Syrah. After summoning we are given the day off to work with our companions to see how we could improve ourselves and incorporate them into our attacks. After learning that each of our companions are the head of their class and we can summon any monster of that class and without forming a contract we can control them. Testing out different magic and abilities I’ve learned that using kyoko to make it to places faster. After being called back to the summoning area we were told to summon another companion each for when we go out into the world it might be hard for us to fight alone. Híroÿ summoned a Pegasus and named her shura and I summoned a Cerberus and named her sanguine after that we went back to training on how to interpret them into our party. 

 

Chapter 4 A New World

 After training and studying the language of the new world for a year and a half we were finally able to go to the land that we were summoned to protect. “Shiro I tell you this control your emotions you are far stronger than you think híroÿ you will become a protector don’t let the evil slip into you” the goddess kokono says to us and snaps her fingers sending us away. After waking up under next to a long river looking around and stretching I see kyoko and sanguine laying next to me in little chibi forms. “ I’ve never seen them like that before looks like I can have them around all the time” I say with a light smile. I then look over at híroÿ and his group behind them was a large town with a lot of small buildings hurdle around and a huge castle in the back. “Looks like that’s the first town we should visit shiro” I hear híroÿ voice as I’m looking at the town. After nodding my head a sense of bloodlust falls on my body as a fireball is shot in our direction. Me and híroÿ jump back dodging and looking around trying to see where it came from. Looking forward we see a large monster it has the head of a tiger and a body as big as a minotaur  and legs the size of that seem to small to hold up this weight but look more like they are for speed. Drawing our weapons I change my sword to a bow and launch three fire arrows at the beast he avoids them and appears behind me. He brings down a large sword that was held in his hand I roll out of the way and híroÿ attacks him with his scythe after colliding with scythe and sword híroÿ jumps back I then launch three fireballs at the monster hitting him with them. Híroÿ then finish him off with a bolt of lightening through the chest. “Those are the monsters we are protecting this world from and it was a lower class” híroÿ says looking at the remains as they dissolve into a black dust leaving a puddle of sludge where he died. “A lower class and it took both of us looks like things are gonna get fun then” a slight smile stretches across my face as we start walking toward the town. Shrugging off the fight we start walking towards the town it’s a little distance away so it wasn’t that long of a walk. Walking to the entrance they stop us and say we have to pay an entrance fee and present proper registration. “Sorry but we’ve just come here is their anyway for us to just pass” híroÿ says clearly agitated. “We don’t know where you outsiders belong so you’re not entering” says the head guard while he and a 10 other nights draw their swords. “You’ve drawn your swords first are you saying you’re prepared to die” I say my eyes slightly glowing purple. They’ve provoked me and then pulled out their swords I’ll kill them. Quickly drawing out one of my swords I rushed the head guard slipping my leg behind his pushing the hilt of my sword into his chest knocking him down. After that I rush the next two behind him kicking them both in the chest. Three guard rush at me swiping at me with their swords I take a quick step back spinning my body to the left avoiding their swords. I drop my body in the ground sliding using my hands to stop the momentum and pushing my body up spinning on my hand I then use that force to kick the three guards. Then doing a backflip I land behind the remain guards and knocking them out with a round house kick. Híroÿ shaking his head looks at me “I think you took that to far” he says looking down at the guards that are groveling in the ground. “They pulled out their swords in me they should’ve been ready for what comes after” I shrug as two more armored knights come from the gate. One is in a silver and gold plated armor long silver hair flows down his back with bright blue eyes. The other was a man holding a long wand that looked like it was made from a tree with a big bright stone that was orange. He hand short red hair with red eyes and was dressed in a long cloak that was blue and red. “We mean no trouble it seems our knights have caused you trouble. The gold knight says pointing to the knights in the ground. “They shouldn’t have drawn their weapons then I wouldn’t have put them down” I say sitting in the ground. “We just wanted to enter your town we just got in and lost all of our stuff on the way” híroÿ says looking at the knights. “We would gladly take you to an establishment that would register you just follow me” the magician knight says looking at us. I don’t really sense any maliciousness or ill will so I shrug and me and híroÿ proceed behind them. Walking through the town with my hands behind my neck I look around. The ribbons hung from the rooftop while food carts we passed in the street. Walking through the town for a little while we approach a large castle with guards watching the front gate.

 

 

Chapter 5 Meeting with A Nobleman

  After walking through the castle we end up in a big room with twelve seats around it. We are instructed to sit down and wait for a second so we sat and looked around at the knights that stood by on stand by without movie. After five minutes a man walks in he isn’t that tall and everyone bows except me and híroÿ we look kinda confused at the site tho cocking our head to the right. “Oh so you really know nothing of this land do you” the man who enters the room looks at us. We shrug and looks at the man. “My name is ruenji I’m one of the noblemen if this land” the man says he was around the age of twenty and has a had short white hair and blue eyes he wore priceless clothes. He then sits in a chair and looks at us. Híroÿ introduces himself his short black hair laying down while his green and red eyes looks at ruenji. I also introduced myself to ruenji scratching my head my purple hair stopping at my shoulders then fixing my gloves. “That monster you two took out outside of the gates I’ve always have to send atleast 20 men to take out one how could you two do it alone” he says his eyes stern and unmoving. I look at híroÿ shrugging he then turns his eyes towards the nobleman he sighs. “We train that’s all theirs is to it what do you expect me to say that we specifically came for them” he shrugs then puts his hands behind his head leaning back. “If you two help me I’ll be glad to pay you finally for it we just received some information on a task and I would really like your help” he says gesturing to us with a smile. “Firstly how did you even see that fight outside of the town I’m pretty sure I sensed no one around” I say lowering my eyes after leaning forward on the table. “I have guard set up everywhere and are adapt at stealth arts this is my property so I would want to keep it clean which is why I’m asking for your help” he says taking out a piece of paper. Looking over the paper it seems like four of those demons are attacking a town looking at the paper thinking so he wants us to fight these things they’re lower class anyway. “Do you want to do it híroÿ they seem to be lower class anyway I’m pretty sure they’ll be easy” I say handing him the paper. “Give us proper registration and a place to stay we will then register as adventurers and live on our own” híroÿ says handing the paper back to the nobleman. “I will send along some men so today please just rest here...” he starts to say but I interrupt him by easing my hand. “I would like to see the town I haven’t been out in about 2 years” I say getting up and walking towards the door. “Atleast take one of my men with you I’ll lend you both two guards each” he waves his hand and 4 females come it 2 of them where beast women and the other 2 where what seemed to be humans. One of them was a fox woman that had dark brown fur and was extremely beautiful with long flowing black hair and a white and red armor suit with a shirt wand in her side. The next beast woman was also a fox demon but she had light red fur and was wearing a pink kimono with a Long staff on her back and long flowing with bright red hair. The two humans were beautiful also one had long gray hair with two swords going down her back and the other had short green hair with twin swords on her back. I shrug and look at them and continue to walk out if I have to I guess I’ll bring them along it’s not like I want to start trouble. “Even you’re coming with me I’m not waiting for you I’m going” I say walking out the door and the beast woman that has the light red hair and the human with the long gray hair follow me. Looking around at the town the sun has set and the lights light up the street and the town is bustling. Taking in all the sights the roads are nice and the houses in each street stand out more than the last it’s so bright and pretty. “By the way the names shiro and these guys are ” I wave my hands at the two girls are kyoko and sanguine” I say as a small dragon and a small dog run up next” I say petting the dog and letting the dragon land on my shoulder. “I’m yura and this is shina we’ve been in a party for 3 months” she says while dropping her shoulders. “A two person party huh that’s rare and neither of you have summons” I say while looking at them both. “Looking at how you keep your summons our my magical power isn’t as high as yours” the mage girl says holding touching her wand. “How about we see just how much lower it and I’ll tell you how to make it last longer” I say waving at them to follow. We walk to a forest area and I sit in a large boulder watching the two girls. “Well we are here now so show me the extent to your magic power just release it and I’ll tell you what your missing” I say holding out my hand for her wand that she hold close to her chest. That’ll be a hindrance since it boosts the magic powered into it. She hands me her wand then slightly breathes out and a pinkish light starts to surround her and after a few seconds a shockwave is sent out as I flows towards the sky but stops at the leaves of one of the trees. Hmmm her magic power isn’t that weak maybe it’s what she summons that keeps her from wait I look at the wand again. “Hold this and see what happens next” I say handing her the wand wand I held in my hand. After she touches it her magic power gets cut in half then disperse all together. “So you need a new wand someone played and awfully cruel joke on you” I say chuckling then looking at her face. Hmph guys someone doesn’t like how much magic power she has I shrug then call kyoko and we all board him flying back to the castle that we will spend the night in. After landing in the courtyard a few guards come out with swords in hand ugh not this again. The two girls then get off the dragon and the knights put their swords away looks like I don’t have to fight. “As I’ve told the other knights earlier if you draw your weapons on me I have no problem killing you” I say my eyes glow dark purple and kyoko goes back into his small dragon form. Walking pass them I get shown to my room for the night and I instantly collapse onto the bed. Without actually thinking about it I already know what híroÿ is up to with it being so late theirs no doubt that those two girls that were with him are in his room. Chuckling I roll over and close my eyes but before falling asleep I hear the door to my room slide open slowly and the steps of three people. Ughh what a drag who is coming into my room while I’m trying to sleep. I quickly jump out of bed grabbing the knife that was next to my bed and lands behind the three that entered. They where wearing mask like they were assassins holding daggers that looked like they had poison covering them. I quickly kick one of them in the chest using the force to throw myself back throwing the knife at the one to the left making it stick into his hand. Pushing off the wall I grab the last two and smash their heads together then tie them up with the rope they had on them. Walking out of my room dragging them behind me I walk into híroÿ who is also dragging three guys behind him. “Yo híroÿ you got attacked two seems like we’ve made enemy’s already” I say smirking. “We have not you have made enemy’s for us” he says facepalming. We head to the big room where the nobleman says he would be and throw the guys at his feet. “I think your knights are slacking if they let these rookies into your home looks like you need more” I say looking annoyed as he calls in his two head guards the mage and knight from before. “Find out how this came about and put an end to it” says the nobleman as his guards bow and exit I walk out behind them yawning. “Hmm seems like híroÿ wanted to talk about something” I shrug then walk back to my room. 

 

Chapter 6 True Power Revealed 

A man with black horns and pure black wings stand before me. His face is unseen behind a half black half purple mask but his voice is unseen. As he chuckles and reaches his hand out for me I notice his laugh. I wake up in the bed looking around what was that dream who was that man why did his voice sound like mine. The questions run through my head but are stopped short by a knock at the door. “Come In I’m just waking up” I say to the person knocking on the door getting out of bed. The two females from yesterday walk in but stop looking at me as I turn to them looking at their bright red faces. “If this is what it takes to make you blush I doubt I need much” I say grabbing the shirt next to my bed putting it on. “Um your hair why has it grown so long and changed color” says shina the human girl looking at me. I look confused then make a visual clone of myself and look at him and my jaw drops. My usual purple hair has turned darker and longer stretching to my back I now have a black eye and a purple eye. “Well asking for that answer I can’t tell you myself maybe I’m different” I say grabbing my armor putting it on and putting my swords on either side of my hip. Walking out of the room I see híroÿ and his looks have changed to. He has this gold aura around him but his shirt black hair remains the same but his eyes have become green and gold. Walking out of the castle I walk over to híroÿ. “I had this weird dream like some demon was calling out to me did you see anything like that” I say to híroÿ and he shakes his head and begins to talk. “No but my dream held angels that called my name constantly” he shrugs and gets onto his Phoenix. “I know you had fun last night those two girls of yours are pretty cute” I say with a chuckle and he just shakes his head at me with a smile. I walk away finishing my sentence and jump onto the back of my dragon and we take off into the sky. We are heading to the area that those demons where say yesterday or as me and híroÿ call them devours. They come to other worlds on different plane of existence to see if they can learn things then destroy the planet and go to the next world. They are in a town to the west of the one since I think they’re only lower class me and híroÿ should be able to take them out. Hopefully they haven’t called anymore any more than five and the challenge will get harder I doubt without anymore training we could take out a mid tier and higher. My mind wonders while riding through the sky’s looking down I see a few fireballs coming toward us. I growl then jump off Unsheathing my twin swords and cutting down the fireballs as they come up “keep them safe kyoko” I say flipping through the air activating wind magic and lands on my feet. Looking around I can sense five monsters after hearing híroÿ land next to me. My body clenches and the presence around me grows in number did they just copy themselves. A cloud of smoke emerges as two large creatures smack the ground blocking our vision. As it clears we see our summon beast being surround by a group of twenty of the devours and we both snap. My body clenches more and I grit my teeth and a dark purple aura starts to form. “ILL KILL YOU ALL YOULL SUFFER FOR HURTING MY COMPANIONS” my voice is tough and unbreaking. The twenty devours then charge at us but one of them is blast by a bright ray of light and turns into dust. “You dare hurt what I hold dear I will purify your destroyed souls here” híroÿ says pulling out his scythe as I draw my twin swords the dark purple surround them and híroÿ scythe turns pure gold. Leaping forward we both slice down cutting two of the demons burning their corpses after jumping into the air using our wings to catch us we both fire an attack magic at one and they burst onto the spot. Switching my sword to a bow and arrow I fire three shots into one and híroÿ throws his scythe cutting one in half and it turns coming back to him. The other demons then start to combine the horns on their head grow as well as their body their legs then turn into the form of a snake. As they finish transforming his tail smacks us both out of the sky and onto the ground creating a crater and we lose our breath for a moment. After standing back up we then look around for the monster and he isn’t anywhere I can’t even sense him. After a few seconds he comes from under us grabbing us in his hands so he hide himself underground and ambushed as. Slamming us back into the ground with the force to make an even bigger crater than before we recover quickly and blast him with the strongest magic we have. Híroÿ hits him with a ray of light that moves at the speed of light so he shouldn’t be able to dodge it while I fly into the sky using my bow and arrow to charge up an arrow with the darkness attribute I have. When each attack hits him they explode and theirs minimal damage done to his outer body. I look at híroÿ and nod my head telling him that it’s time for is the kill him. Landing next to him we both channel all of our magic into our hands and blast it at him as they mix the ray intensity’s and shoots right through his body making him blow up and the dark purple and gold light shine into the sky. After a second we collapse on spot for using all the magic power we have. That was a middle class we weren’t prepared for that at all and it took everything we had to actually put it down. After feeling two warm bodies wrapping around me I smile in my sleep. A few hours later I wake up in a bed wrapped in bandages with two people next to my bed. “What’s going on here” I say while opening my eyes looking at them on the left and right side. “Oh you’re finally awake” shina says looking down with a weird face is she looking for something. “Are you looking for an explanation of earlier we’ll to bad I don’t have one” I say to them while sitting up in bed I heal faster than a normal person so sometimes I wonder what am I. Today has shown me that I’m not a human but I can’t be a demon speaking because I was summoned by a god if what she says is true. But that’s a worry for another time today I should focus on training so I should meet this nobleman and get this place to stay. Getting up outta bed I take off the bandages and put on a shirt and looking back at them. “So has where’s this nobleman I got a reward to collect” I say while they get up outta their chairs and head to the door. As we walk through the halls they lead me back to the big meeting room and sitting in the chair at the window is híroÿ looks like he was up before me looks like I lost this battle. “So you woke up before me this time huh híroÿ I’ll take the lose in this battle” I say scratching the back of my head. He always had a better healing factor than me so I always wake up later. 

 

Chapter 7: Adventures and A Small Home

After receiving our small house on the outskirts with the money we’ve earned we are settling down in the living area. We’ve been sitting here for about two hours then there was a knock on the door. The four female adventurers from before stood their meaning it was time for us to go register at the guild. Walking through the streets during the day was much more prevailing the difference in races showed more proudly. They had different races of beast man like dogs cats lizard and the like I’ve never seen such variety even in anime. They also had a lot of Demi humans like ogres orcs elf’s and more it was outstanding to look at. Thinking about it I actually did see more races at the festival maybe they have some living here that only come out at night. Reaching the guild we walk in and start walking towards the counter. We start to hear all the basic information like the ranking policies and most jobs they take. The ranking system goes from white-black-green-red-gold-purple and we get a black card card because of the words the noble put it and that mean we are second tier adventures. So they have a majority of jobs we can pick from and while we were looking at the board. I never really thought about it but I’m glad the goddess taught us the language of this world. I pick off a job about a golem in the south and ask híroÿ if he wants to do it. “We can do this one quick and be back by dinner plus all the other ones are guard duty” I say quickly looking at híroÿ. Every since we where in the other world we both had a love for animals that’s one thing that made us connect. So he nods his head and we head to the counter and get the location and what to do when we kill it. Flying to the southern side of the city overhead their was a beautiful river that flowed under us. Passing over it we landed a few meters past it in an open part of the forest. “I can feel his heavy spirit coming from the northern side” I say as the ground starts to tremble as something approaches. A hand comes from behind a tree and uproots the tree pushing it over as 3 large golems walk out of the forest. I take out the paper and look at it again so it’s more than just the one maybe we can get extra. “No weapons this time magic enhancements and magic are out choice in weapons” I say looking at híroÿ channeling magic into my hands and feet. My magic control is better so I should finish first looking back at the golems I smirk. I kick off the ground leaving a small crater where I jumped from toward one of the golems I then drive my left fist into his chest. I rip out the core of the golem throwing it into the air then jumping by over to the last golem híroÿ kicks it into the air and I drive it into the ground with an axe kick and it crumbles to the ground. After retrieving the three cores we head back to the town to complete the assignment. “Hey kid you shouldn’t be in a place like this only real men can escape alive” a voice says from the mission assignment board to the left of the room as me and híroÿ walk in. I snicker at the big bald head hairy man and shake my head continuing to walk. He stood around 2 meters tall and looked like all he did was sit under some weights. Wait do they actually have weight training here the question sparks my interest as I reach the desk. Putting the three cores in the desk and receiving our reward we turn back to the door. I know I look younger than híroÿ but just because so doesn’t mean that I can be picked on so easy the thought runs through my head looking a the big bald guy at the door smirking. We walk past him and he puts his hand on my shoulder and my body instantly reacts to it and I grab his arm flipping him over my back then stepping on his arm. “Just because I’m younger than you doesn’t mean I’m weaker that broken arm is you me penalty for wasting my time” I say as I continue walking. Standing at the edge of the street deciding on what to do next I take out a wallet that has three different kinds of coins which were copper silver and gold. Looking up at the sun it hasn’t set much so yet so it should be night soon so me and híroÿ head to our house to clean up and go explore tonight. After walking towards the house we see a group of people standing near our house as we walk up they look like pretty high ranking people but not as high as the nobleman we talked to during our first day in this world. Walking over to them they tell that they are an envoy sent by one of the royal family. Eh this place has a king and his family is calling us I look over at híroÿ and he accepts the note and we bow to them as they leave. After we enter the house we sat around in the living area where híroÿ was reading the note and I wait for him to tell me about the job. He has always been a better people person than me I simple enjoy the company of my animals and that has always made me happy. Híroÿ on the other hand has always been a play boy from his short black hair his green and red eyes and that cut over on his left eye. I can see why girls like him but I have always been the dark person that never got along with anyone my sister and híroÿ were the only family I had but I always thought life would be better if I had a girlfriend. I shake my head vigorously to get that thought out of my head remembering what happened to my last cousin who had thought a girlfriend was good. His girl was always going behind his back just to either be with his friends or co workers and that hurt him. He was left in a state of depression for six months until ultimately he decided to kill himself and that hurt I made a promise to him that I would never feel the love that made him so sad. “Ok so tomorrow we will meet with the first and second princess and princes so we can escort them to a neighboring country” híroÿ says as he starts to talk about the job that was delivered. “Why is tho shouldn’t their be stronger adventures in this town” I say to híroÿ leaning back in my chair with a sound of disgust. He shrugs and asks if we should accept the job because the pay seems to be a decent amount in this world. “Well it’s not like we don’t need the money we should just get it over with and get the money” I run my hands together greedily and smile getting up. Heading upstairs to the shower room thinking maybe tomorrow is the day to finally get some  armor so we don’t take much damage maybe something enchanted with magic hopefully they have that stuff in this world. 

 

Chapter 8: Armor and Meeting Royalty 

Waking up in the morning with a slight

headache I put my hand on my head and think on last night. After putting on something that looks like normal clothes me and híroÿ went out to a pub and had some fun drinking and talking. Sitting up in bed I cock my head to the side and look at the left and right side of my bed. Laying next to me are the two girls named yura and shina that we met from the noble the day we entered the town. Looks like híroÿ talked these girls into coming home with us looking at them they are kinda cute. Shaking my head moving the thought shinas eyes start to open looking at me those light gray eyes remind me of a shining coin at the bottom of a puddle. “Good morning to you did you sleep well sorry you had to share a bed with me” I say to her sliding to the bottom of my bed and getting up. “Oh I slept well and no don’t mind me I’m surprised that you were manly enough not to try anything” she says to me her face looking away. Oi don’t set off flags like that you have no reason to fall in love with me. “Ha well thanks I tend to think before I act I’m not some perv” I say scratching the back of my head grabbing a shirt out of the chest at the bottom of my bed and slipping it on. “So today I would like you girls to show me the best armor shop that I can get some light armor to wear” I say to them as yura sits up in the bed. Wow she is cute also as a beast woman she matches all the beauty I’ve seen in anime. “Depending on if you want certain enchants or gear will depend on the shop we take you to” shina says and stands up outta bed her figure perfectly stands out in the morning sun especially since I’ve never seen her in any but the armor she wears. Nodding my head looking over at yura who is stretching after getting out of bed her tail raising and her ears perking up. For someone like me a girls figure doesn’t matter but yura has a better figure than shina she’s filled out more in all the right places and where nothing is needed she is as slender as can get. “So I’m looking for light armor with magic enchants where are we going” I say to the girls who are getting dressed and I sit on a chair in my room at the desk looking away from them at the note for the job. “Firstly we humbly ask that you create a party with us because doing some adventures alone will be troublesome and we are also green rank” yura says taking out her guild card and showing it to me. “I’m not entirely against it but why choose me you could probably find someone better suited to you girls” I say to the looking back at yura. “Well of course but we choose you so many people want us in their party because of our looks you look at us differently” shina says and I sigh. “Fine if you want then I’ll accept you into my party then if you girls are in my party that means the other two asked híroÿ” I say and their faces become bright red. “Well lets just say they already marked that road” yura says and shina nods and my face jumps to a surprised one. Wow híroÿ as quick as ever I see you haven’t changed at all but I don’t doubt he has already but looks like every world has the quick to fall in love. I look at the two girls who are squirming and put my hand to my face smacking my lips. “So off to the armor shop correct I’ll be thankful if my party members can help me pick out that looks good on me” I say to them heading towards my room door and they follow behind. Walking out of the house we sat down in a restaurant that was next to us for breakfast because the armor show we were going to was close to my house we decided to eat breakfast here. Looking over the menu I pick something at random because I know nothing of the food only the language and how to use their magic. After getting our food on my plate sits something like pork and bread with something that looks like a pancake from the old world. It would be better to call it an entirely different thing because they don’t have something like syrup but it was already baked sweetly. After paying the waitress and tipping her we exit the store and start walking towards the center of the town. After walking for a few minutes we enter a shop named {magicraft} and a voice comes from the back of the store. “Good morning to you today is their anything I can help you with today” the voice says and my eyes meet a fairy. She seems to be in her late teens with white hair and gold eyes and pure white wings that showed on her back. This is my first time seeing a fairy besides in anime and she is just as beautiful as them. “Today I’m looking for some magic enhanced light armor” I say to her as she smiles and comes from the back of the store. “Well just follow me then” she then turns to the left and we follow her into a room with weapons and armor lined up everywhere. After taking a few pieces and asking about them I decided to buy some boots a coat with a hood that totaled to 22 gold pieces. The boots gave a speed and agility boost the coat gave me resistance depending on my ability to certain magic the cold and heat cut and blunt object resistance and a ring that increased my magic ability. Walking out of the store with my mask over my eyes and the dark purple and black robe around my body and the boots have been put on. “So time to go meet the princes and princesses” I say to the two putting the mask on the left side of my face and we start walking towards the castle as kyoko lands on my shoulder and sanguine catches up to my left side. Walking for an hour or two we stand before the gate wheee híroÿ and his party where and it looked like a few more people where. Looking around it seems that they brought eight groups of three to four people of green rank. So we weren’t the only ones they invited shrugging I stand behind híroÿ and his party. Five minutes later the king comes out and everyone bows me and híroÿ were later because we didn’t know that was the king but after seeing everyone bow we do also. “Fine adventures thank you for coming today...” the king starts his speech and as such the princesses and princes start to pick groups looks like each person gets 2 groups of adventures and a group of knight guards totally ten. So they get at most twenty people and at least sixteen as I’m thinking about this my group is selected by the second princess and híroÿs group was chose by the first. “May I ask those who were chosen together stand together as I tell you about the job in more details” the king says and everyone except my group and híroÿs group moves. The group that was selected to accompany me had three men and one woman. They looked like they were one big family two of them had light brown hair while the female and youngest looking male hard dark brown hair. From oldest to youngest they said their names Hiro was the oldest male and also biggest in the group muscle wise next to him was Hiroe and he says that he was a magic caster the female was next and her name was Izsa she said that she was brawler fighter and loved the front lines and last was the youngest boy named izula seems he was good with support magic. I didn’t know support magic existed maybe I should ask him later I think to myself as shina and yura introduce themselves. “I’m Shiro this is kyoko and sanguine they are my companions” I say to the group and we all finish introduction. “I would like to ask you all to guard my children to the city that they have been given to receive things for the state” the king says as the second princess hands the woman in the other group a letter and map. “The state has been in a little turmoil lately because of these unknown creatures so please stay safe and make it back here safe your reward will be discussed then” the king says to us then retreats back into the castle. The second princess then turns to us and bows slightly and starts to introduce herself. “I am the second princess of this state Yullia nera” she says to us and we all introduce ourselves to her. 

 

Chapter 9: First Exploration 

The carriage bounces up and down the road as we head to the town next over. The knights riding in front of my party occasionally looks back and glares at me but I’m so use to it I barely notice. Opening my magic book I look up support magic I ask the young brother izula about support magic and quickly bought a book before we left and decided to study up on it. The queen was in the carriage in the middle with the female and two brothers from the other party while the magic caster stayed in this one. We are heading to the next town called Galford the princess said to us before leaving the name of the town we left was capital city Exium. They say this town has been taken over by a corrupt noble that was suppose to be under the king tho the people says he has been progressively getting worse by the months with increasing taxes and taking people away from their family. So the king told the princess to handle these things since maybe one day she will ascend the throne. Looks like females are more likely to ascend to the throne here instead of males well this is something I’ve never experienced before. We should arrive the next day or so we are camping out tonight and getting back on the road in the morning as the sun starts to set in the back ground. I take out the map and look at down at the gap of forest that we should reach in the next two or three hours with a flowing river next to it. That’s the place we’re gonna camp out at for the night I call kyoko down and jump on her back and above the knights. “Theirs a stop point ahead with a river next to it I’m going to scout above” I say to the lead knights who waves me away and the one knight who was glaring at me clenches his teeth as if to keep from speaking. Flying through the sky I see a small area with a little opening and a few meters away theirs a river it seems big enough for people to wash off in. Kyoko goes as low to the ground as she can and I jump off her back landing in one of the small trees then jumping down as I land on the ground I sense something coming from behind me. Before regaining my balance I jump to the right and a knife sticks into a tree truck in front of me. Is this an assassination attempt but wait for me or the princess the thoughts exit my head as a group of about twenty bandits step out from behind trees. “Oh you’re bandits you think you can take my money come on I’ll let you try” I say quickly getting into a fighting stands without drawing either of my swords. “You’re a cocky one we will send you to the afterlife” says the biggest one out of the group and they all charge at me. Grabbing two of them by the arms I swing them into two of the others then jump into the air towards a tree. Pushing of the tree trunk I deliver a punch to the big one and kick the one behind me. Three of them cut at me with swords and I avoid them with three consecutive side steps then kick each of them with a round house. Another two approach me from behind and I spin my body around kicking them in also. One shoots and arrow at me and I avoid it moving my body to the left running through the group either punching them or kicking them to render them unconscious until only one is left. “Now you tell me who sent you and who you’re here for” the bandit screams and tries to run away but I left out a heavy sigh and focus earth element in my hands. Roots from the trees come out of the ground and grabs his legs dragging him back to me. “You ran away from and didn’t even help your companions that is your death” my eyes glow dark purple and I use all of my force to stomp on his head. I tie up the remaining bandits and wait for the rest of the group to arrive. I used water magic to wash the blood of my boots and dried them with wind magic. The people who leave there fellow man and don’t fight are scum I’ve always thought this way and now I can act upon it I like the way this feels. After question the remaining bandits before the group comes the only information I get was that they were hired by someone and they don’t even know the person name or facial features. I guess that leave it back at step one they were only told to kill anyone that steps in this area. An hour or so later the second princess and the group arrives and I’ve already set up the camp and started cooking for everyone. After informing the lead knight in our group he sends a few of his knights to deliver the bandits to the capital city prison. Around the fire everyone was eating and chatting except me I was laying on top of a tree looking up at the sky. Remembering the world I came from the sky was never this beautiful if you could even see it most days clouds covered the sky. “I wonder what híroÿs group is up to at this moment” I say turning over on the treetop and closing my eyes. 

 

Chapter 10: Híroÿ and His Group

Looking out the window of the carriage híroÿ stares at the scenery as it passes by. “Your name is híroÿ am I correct” the first princess looks over at the boy looking out of the window. “Yes I just recently came to town “ híroÿ says to the princess and the other three females that say I’m the carriage with him. The princess goes by the name of Lilith and she seemed to be a well raised female who was around seventeen the same age as he was. At that moment care a knock on the carriage down and one of the knights stood their. “Your highness we should reach the town of gartrude within an hour” says the knight and bows slightly. They had stopped to kill a lose monster híroÿ hadn’t helped so the knights seemed to have a little disgust in his eyes as he looked back at híroÿ who sighed. “Thank you for the informations” the human girl who had just joined híroÿs party says but the knight was already gone. “Once we make it to the town may I ask you to stay close to me híroÿ” the princess says her face becoming a little flushed. “My duty is to guard you I’ll make sure no harm comes to you” a smile stretches across híroÿs faces and the other three girls stare daggers st the princess who seems unaffected. “Oh don’t mind sharing him if that’s what you girls are worried about” the princess says to the other three who blush extremely red and start to stumble their words. “Wh-what are you saying princess h-he’s not who I like” the beast girl frana speaks up. “E-E-Ex-Exactly wh-what Frana said I-I don’t like híroÿ” the human girl Kara says waving her hands back and forth. The quiet fairy girl that was squirming to herself at the left of the carriage was Lani she was looking down playing with her skirt. “Oh so you all don’t mind if I take him for myself” the princess says putting her fingers to her mouth. “NO YOU CAN NOT” the remaining three speak loudly even the quiet fairy girl spoke to everyone’s surprise. “All of you girls are beautiful theirs no reason to argue I’m pretty sure you all will have a successful love life” híroÿ says trying to calm the situation. Remembering back to when they left the capital city and got attacked by a group of magicians trying to capture the princess. Híroÿ had been chosen to ride in the cart with the princess seemingly because she wanted to look at him. That all changed when they got attacked by a group of assassins and híroÿ protected the princess and the other girls in the carriage. Thinking on this while staring out the window a large town starts to come into view. The building stretches pass a gate that headed straight to the center. In this town it looked like a smaller population were people like orcs and ogres and other beastmen races that didn’t look quiet human. The larger population was human and it looked like most of the beastmen had some kind of collar around there neck. It was dark black with spikes coming out the sides and they all looked down while carrying boxes and crates. “What are those collars they have on” híroÿ asks for an explanation looking at the other three in the carriage with him. “In this town I think they are called worker collars” Frana says clenching her fist tightly. “In other words they are being forced to work for the person that put the collar on them” Lilith says trying to calm down Frana by slightly touching her hand. Thoughts start to run through híroÿs mind as they approach a castle in the center district of the town. So they have something called slavery here híroÿ thinks opening the door to the carriage and helping each person out. Calling Syrah híroÿ sends her and the Pegasus shura to investigate the town for him while the princess does her duty. Standing next to the princess híroÿ and his group wait for the lord of this land to invite them in and after five minutes an older looking beast woman guides them to the meeting room. Sitting on the opposite side of a table was an old plump man who looked like an egg with short silverish hair and gray eyes. “Good morning your highness I am noble Furtzen and I’m the lord of this land” the plump man stands and bows smiling at the four females. Once his eyes reach híroÿ he turns away quickly and continues to talk. “What brings you to my castle on this day are you finally agreeing to marry me” the man says and the princesses face goes dark. “I just came because we have been receiving reports of leadership not being done correctly” Lilith says staring at the man who in reply turns white. The people outside looked worm down and like they given up on living híroÿ thinks to himself while looking out a window. “Firstly my father said no worker collars in his town yet they’re here secondly you have raised the taxes for the third time and your townspeople are suffering don’t you know negative emotions attract soul eaters” Lilith says to the man who then sits up straight smiling. “Oh I have no idea what you’re...” in the middle of his sentence a voice comes through my mind. “Shura what’s going on out their” híroÿs thought reach shura who was investigating in the town. “It seems some kind of demon has appeared and he is turning every person into a kind of beast” shura says and híroÿ turns to the old man slamming his hand on the desk. “Because of you the people is this town are all in bad shape if you can’t protect them I will” híroÿ says through clenched teeth as he rushes out of the castle and onto the street. Looking up into the sky he sees shura throwing lightening at something on the ground and rushes towards her. After turning a corner híroÿ is ambushed by a group of black monster they look like their sling has been melted off with something and only the muscle and those lifeless eyes remain. “I’m sorry I could save you in time” the look in his eyes was soft as a blinding light comes from his hand and they all start to crack and shatter. Híroÿ puts his hands together and says a little pray for them to live in peace as he takes his scythe off his back. It looks like I only need light magic for this he thinks while channeling light magic into his scythe. He jumps onto a roof and looks down where he sees shura and Syrah fighting a floating demon with white and black skin with the body of a larger owl. Throwing his scythe cutting a row of the black demons híroÿ jumps off the roof and catches his scythe as he lands on the ground. “Shura Syrah go watch the castle I’ll take this thing on” híroÿ says to them and they quickly run towards the castle. The only reason they were sent back to the castle was because he was still worried about leaving the princess and girls alone with that egg man. The demon charges him and híroÿ throws his scythe at its left arm cutting it off jumping over it. After grabbing his scythe again he dashed behind the monster and slices across its back then spins in a circle cutting off its head. As it dissolves híroÿ gets on his knees and prays asking for peace to all the people that it took away today. Putting his scythe on his back he starts to walk back to the castle. After returning to the castle híroÿ sees the nobleman on the ground in restraints with a few guards surrounding him. “So what happened when I left here” híroÿ looks to the three girls confused. “Well after you left this pig tried to put a worker collar on each of us when we ran out of energy from fighting him off we thought we were done then your summoned beast came to help” Lilith says to híroÿ moving closer to him. “I’m glad they got back in time I knew something was wrong about him and also please don’t call them summoned beast they have names or you can call them my summons they are my companions” híroÿ says with a small smile on his face. Waving his hand to Syrah and shura they stand next to his side and he pets both of them before they turn back small. They then load up the carriage and start to head back to the capital city.
