Just a small scene for something that just buzzed across my neurons. The names and entities therein are not set in stone, but the scene is what I'm more inclined to post for thoughts and suggestions. Extra details may come later as I develop this idea further.

Note: This feels like a scene or two right after a tulmultuous beginning. So forgive the lack of details leading up to it. Just want to see how this works for most people.

With a raised hand before his face, Scott chanted in a whisper: Shi’in Noct va loktus. His voice had gone deep, drifting into a duality of natural tone and something darkly guttural. Demonic might be another term for it, but he was in total control of himself. The shift of his eyes as they rolled up to stare at the creature supplanted the notion of focus. There was no terror behind them—only pure unadulterated determination.

Tina had seen the change in his attitude. Her mind went total bonkers at the darkness flowing from him. He’d never seemed this way in his entire life thus far. What had scorched his mind so wickedly? Scott’s hand glowed dimly in the pale moonlight.

“Behind me,” he ordered, and Tina scurried into his shadow. “Stay there ‘til I say not to.” Tina shook her head yes. Her eyes widened at his commanding nature, and the events unfolding. She timidly tried to peep around to see the foul beast coming toward them, her hand resting against the nearest tree for stability.

“Don’t look,” Scott mentioned not even turning to face her. “This is going to be horrid on your mind if you do.” And in a swift smooth motion, Scott’s hand reached toward the monster, splayed fingers like a martial arts master, and released the odd energy he had embedded within it.

“Licht Manas!” he bellowed twice as the creature loomed from around the rocks they had just passed. Bright dagger-like projectiles zoomed from his hand, multiplying as they gain distance away from him. The Brightchild staggered with every hit—its body taking over fifty sparkling daggers to the chest.

And in a controlled voice, Scott’s almost non-audible ‘Luminous Volatile’ floated to Tina’s ears. The Brightchild’s body hummed and glowed with the power he had embedded into its torso. Every limb slowly expanded, then violently exploded. Tina gasped. Scott turned, and ran to her side, satisfied this one was at least off their scent.

“Let’s go. That one was only the beginning. We must leave Valiance now. Also, I told you not to look.” He mentioned, noticing her trembling.

“But…” she barely got her word out before he interrupted her with a quick kiss on her lips. She froze.

“You can slap me later if you’d like, but we have to move.” Scott grabbed her hand and started walking hurriedly. Tina walked after him bemused by her predicament. Did he just kiss me? Oh God, I can’t believe he did that. She fumed slightly, then blushed, realizing she’d just been kissed for the second time in her life. At least, she didn’t completely hate it this time, she mused, and a small smile formed on her face.

Scott turned back. “What’s with the smile? We’re in a hurry here. Come on.”

“Oh, nothing.” She replied, somewhat flabbergasted at his words after the action he’d taken moments ago but she still smiled and hurried after him.

I think the scene was filled with emotion and I also think it's something new that you could defiantly work with! Great description!

Thanks,1IWH1. As I said in my summary, this kinda ran through my head the other day and I needed to get it down before I lost it. You mentioned something new. Is that a nod that you've read some of my other stories and noticed a definitive difference in story concept? Or was that just a general reference to a new story to work on?

I feel I made the intimacy here a level more prominent than the actions before it which is something I almost never do.

Anyway, I think it's a perfect little starter scene to keep my mind locked on to the details that might be behind it. As for description, unless you've delved into some of my other stuff, you haven't seen anything yet. I usually go a tad bit deeper with it. Appreciate the read and comment.

Also, let me know if this is something you'd like to follow. If so, I'll try to make it a priority to work on it for a few weeks.
