Blood of an Animal
Do you ever feel lost?
Do you ever look deep down inside,
Staring at you're life,
Living in a world so cold.
Lita Rouge is a Lux Lucis Ferox. In Latin, a Light Warlock. She is a protector, of all races of all planets, along with few selected others. Passing the main test, at a young age, she is paired with Dominic Ratchet, the youngest, most skilled Lux Ferox. so she can be trained. Lita is now very proud of her sister Leila, who's been elected Queen of their home planet, Pacis. But when a alliance goes wrong, and an important ally turns against the Lux Ferox, and turn to there enemy, there leader wants the new Queen. To strike a very, important deal.
Lita won't let that happen.
Pacis is a very important planet, the only planet of peace, and a valauble ally to Urbs. The most important, civlized planet it the world. Litaand her Master are scent to help the Queen, whom refuses to leave her invaded Kingdom. Along the way, Litas friend is facing deadly challenges of a deadly curse, and her and her fatherly figure meet a boy who's more than he seems, utterly powerful, powers that can match even Litas.
My heart pounded, as I felt the dark eyes lift to her. I caught the gaze, and my weapon was in my hand, ready to strike and kill. I lifted it up over her head, two hands waiting for the attack. The creature smiled, teasing me. Making me feel like an amateur. I was the beast here, and I knew it.
I smiled, and clicked the button on my sword, making an extra blade come out the end. It was custom made… I made it myself really. The tip, tinted with a killing black poisonous toxin, the blade made with Rica, a very fine material found newly on the planet Razenor. It was an indestructible metal. The blade made in the fires of Mount Oom.
I smiled at the challenged in the beasts eyes, and he circled me a while as I him. Than he charged. I let out a cry of war, swerving to the side and slashing down the blade with immense force. The beast caught the blade in hand, black blood flowing and twisted it over so I went painfully twisting to. I yanked it back before I fell and went for another strike under him, which he neatly jumped. But I didn’t feel nervous. I would not loose. Not ever. The beast swung hard, his clawed hands outstretched, I crouched missing it and shot back up, and hit his hand.
His hand – alone- fell to the ground. It streaked – more in surprise than pain I was guessing- and shot me an evil glare. I gave her sword and little twirl. “Revenge is right here, come and get it while it's still warm..” I chanted, smirking wildly.
He let out a threatening snarl, which would have made me jump out of my pants if I wasn’t used to these things. He charged, and I flipped over him, landing on the other side. He quickly turned over but it was do late for him. I jabbed the end – and curved- part of my blade into him. He streaked, as I pulled it out and did a little spin as I swerved the long part of her blade to take of his head.
I breathed hard smiling to myself. Not a scratch on me! (Except for maybe a sprain or broken wrist) The lights turned on in the training room, and I ran a hand threw my hair.
“Impressive, very impressive Dear Adelita. I’ve never seen someone you’re age past this test, since Dominic Ratchet.” I smiled, it felt good to hear it. “Thank you Master.” I said. The huge barricade door’s opened, and the light was a little harsh on my eyes. I clicked the button on my weapon that cased both blades to draw in.
I walked threw the doors, greeted by the friendly smile of Master Jason. He cleared his throat. “Lita Rouge, at the mere age of seven we are happy to say you have passed the test, to become a Learner.” He said, smiling. Master Jason seemed nice… until you saw him in battle. I stepped forward, and old Master Jason put an arm around my shoulder leading to the Pairing room. It was were Master’s, from all over came to see young Lux lucis Ferox’s train. If they liked the Ferox, they’d place a bet to teach it. The bond between Master and Learner was something unbreakable. A great friendship.
“Would anyone like to teach, young Adlelita Rouge.” He said, "Just Lita." I corrected and to my surprise almost all of the hands shot up.I recognized some of them from her studies… famous’s Ferox’s here to see… me?
I almost blushed.
And that's pretty rare, because I don't do blushing.,
Master Jason smiled, impressed. I played with my hands. “I’ll take her.” Said someone, suddenly walking in. I turned my head, and my mouth dropped open. It was Dominic Ratchet.
He was a VERY famous Lux lucis Ferox even at the age of 10. Age doesn’t matter when you are a Ferox. By the way, a Ferox (short for Lux Lucis Ferox) is a Warlock in a way. We can control the things around us, manipulate the things called, minomites. The things that control our world. Well we can control them. Lux lucis Ferox also can control one of the deadly elements. We have more than the mudane four now.
There’s Fire, Earth, Water, Wind, Lightning, Darkness, Light, Sonic, Ice, Sand and Metal.
Master Jason smiled. “Dominic. Good to see you again. Anyways, you are still young. You sure you would like this responibity right away? Not have some fun first?”
“How is it fun without someone to share it with, and teach?” he asked, smiling at Master Jason. Master nodded and smiled at him. “Very well. But anyways, it’s up to Lita to choose.” He said, and looked at me. I gulped. I looked around at all the famous faces in the room. “I own a planet!” said one. “I’ve taught two other famous Ferox, I could teach you also! You’d be better than my other two!” said another. Comments on themselves spread across the room. But I knew what I wanted. I looked to Master Jason, who read the expression on my face. He smiled. “Master Dominic, I think she’s chosen you.” He said, and defeated groan’s filled the room. But Dominic just smiled friendly to me. My heart melted. Such a nice smile. But he was Master to me now. He would teach me his ways. And he was only four years older than me. I smiled. I could finally, officially be a Ferox. I could finally, protect my people, and show them that no matter what age, I could never be defeted. His smile grew. “Lita Rouge, I take you, as my Learner. I will teach you, guide you, and help you along any path, until I know you are ready to go off on your own.” He said, smiling. I knelt down, and he put both hands on my shoulders. “Do you accept?”
“I do Master.” I answered, and Master Jason smiled and applauded. “You two may go. You are bonded by the power of Learner and Master. Until the Master see’s it fit to let you go. Now, children, go. Go wherever you wish! Of course, before you start fighting side by side, you need to bond.” Master Jason said, smiling.
Master nodded, and walked out with me. I pulled my white hood over my head, that belonged to my white cloak. My mom had made it for me before her passing.
“So.” Dominic- I mean- Master said. “What’s you’re element?” he asked. I smiled. “Lightning.” I answered. He smiled. “Can I see you’re weapon?” he asked curiously, and I nodded, with drawing it from my belt for him. I place it in his hand. Right now, it was just the handle. “You push the black button, and the regular blade comes out. The regular blade, it tinted with Toxin, that will kill you if you get hit with it. The white button brings out the back-up blade. It’s about a quarter of the size of the real blade, but it’s curved and very deadly.”
“Where did you get this?” he asked me curiously. “I made it myself.” I answered. “My dad, he’s good with building and fixing things. Always was. We made a demo of it together, than I perfected it and made it my own. By myself.” I explained, playing with a stray lace on my cloak. His cloak was to no surprise black. Matching his element, Darkness.
“If you’re a Lightning, than why do you have a white cloak?” he asked me.
A common question. “Shouldn’t it be yellow?” he continued. I smiled. “My mom and my dad, both were the Light element. Mom made me this cloak before she died, assuming I would be a Light element.” She shrugged. “So I wear it anyways.”
“Hmm.” He said. “Interesting. Very interesting. What about you’re grandparents?”
“They were Light too. Dad assured me. We don’t know how I got Lightning, but I don’t really care. I am who I am.” I said logically, shrugging. He nodded with a smile. “Guess you are huh?”
He pulled down his hood, and I could finally see him.
AND HE WAS DAMN HOT!
I know, I shouldn’t being saying that about my Master. And, of course Ferox weren’t allowed to marry unless they gave up there position. For good reason too, any Ferox who fall’s in love while still battling, always falls into trouble. It’s one of our most sacred of laws. The law all must follow.
Anyways, he was beautiful I tell you. He smiled at me, and I smiled back.
And that was the start, to everything for me. Everything that is about to happen. I must warn you this story can be very upsetting and depressing. A lot of people I loved died. Of course, this first book is sort of just an intro coming into the real stuff, so no worries no one dies yet. Not for a while anyways.
Well wait no... yeah someone dies in this book.
NOW I AIN'T!!!!!!
AWESOME!! AMAZING! SPECTACULAR!!!!
Thank you guys :P
Sorreh about my werid tendancy to change between narrator p.o.v to first person. :P It happens to be sometimes ;)
Fun fact: Minomites, are the things that keep the world alive. Each of us have millions living inside us, making us work. Half of these Minomites, are good and half are evil. What matters is the side of them you choose to act with.
