Alive - Chapter VIWeakness. Pure weakness was inflicted on my whole being, causing me to remain silent in tiredness that engulfed me slowly. Something had changed greatly inside, but I couldn't tell the source.
I searched for an opening in my blackened vision, shaking my head once or twice, still unable to break through. Unannounced darkness ate at my mind, gnawing away the realization I was about to confess.
I was blind.
Though I was unable to see, I was eager to clear the questions surrounding me. I stretched out my arm, but didn't see any moves. I could only hear or feel it; a stir in the wind. Brushing over my face with my hand, I noted my still opened eyes. Open, yet unable to see.
"Your eyes have gained a beautiful light green glow. Transpicuous, still clear, like the blue sky without clouds. It seems not to trouble you a lot." Nathan's soft voice rang through my ears. His nostalgic words sounded peaceful, waiting for me to answer his fears. He raised a hand to trace my cheekbone.
My muscles tight
Alive - Chapter VI gazed at Saera, who held a pack of paper in front of his nose. He studied it closely, until the last letters written on the white sheets were covered with his eyes. He smoked a cigarette and leaned against the wall. He hummed a song while changing papers as he read further. A stressed admosphere hang around him, leaving me to wonder.
Sighing, I leaned back against the opposite wall and sunk down to the ground. I ticked with my foot on the floor nervously, obviously angering Saera. I shifted and turned my head towards Ryuun and Nathan. Their sleeping bodies laid comforted on the floor, curled-up on a smooth manner. Soft noise escaped from Nathan as he dreamed. Suzano and Alena were nowhere to be seen, probably out for a night walk.
Resting my head in my crossed arms around my knees, sleep began to catch up to me as well. I shook my head to it, having gained Saera's attention for a while. He looked at me with a soft smile on his face.
"You are getting tired as well, I see," he said, ch
Alive - Chapter IV"Oh no, you are not going with us." Saera threw the duke's son a warning expression. Though his voice sounded stern, uncertainty was buried deep down his throat. He clenched both his hands into fists and slammed them against each other. "This is not your business, boy. You're staying out of this. The duke'll kill me if I let you come along."
"I told you before that this is my fight too. This is also for my household's sake, even as for yours. I don't care about the consequences." Nathan pulled at the white tie strapped tightly around his shirt's collar.
Saera shifted his head to the side and looked outside. "You aren't even allowed to set a few feet out of this mansion without arguing with your parents, am I right?"
"I will sneak out if I have to. But I'm not leaving you alone on this mission," Nathan threw back, a burst of anger chasing down his words. His determination grabbed hold of the one point my group's captain couldn't stand; resistance to his arguments.
"No is no, end of stor
Alive - Chapter IIIPutting up a hand and stroking over the back of my head, I slowly raised my body from the ground. A heavy grip was released as the boy crawled up and sat down to look at me. His pants were ripped to expose a scraped knee, but seemed not to worry him. Passing crowd shot us no sight or offer to help. The boy conjured a rather awkward smile.
"Did I hurt you?" he said hastily, apologising and reaching a hand in my direction for me to grab it. Politeness crossed his face. "I am very sorry, madam. I hadn't noticed you crossing the street."
I used his weight to haul up and laughed at him. I stretched a finger to point at him. "No problem. I understand it, but you might consider being a little more careful next time. It's a busy city, but that doesn't give you priority to run into others literally."
The young man's innocent look penetrated my being. His sheepish behavior apologized for his deeds as soon as someone centered sight at him. By the looks of him, I figured him a little older than I
Alive - Chapter IIRyuun grabbed my hand, yanking me away from the water edge in a wild manner. His strength pulling at me brought a sense of danger with it. Though I didn't understand what I was supposed to do, I let myself flow with his movements. My head was clouded with questions. I pulled at my friend's clothes on my turn and begged him to release me. "What is this all about?" I roared at him, eyes narrowed.
"We have to flee before it's too late." Ryuun took me by the neck instead, dragging me farther over the abandoned streets. The dim light coming from the torches hanging from houses marked the way we ran across. "They have found out our location."
Something flashed in front of my eyes. A grey gun appeared in sight and a golden bullet soared through the air, missing my head by a few inches. The noise caused my movements to freeze in an instant. I stopped, refusing to look around. Ryuun halted in a quick reaction and took my head in his hands. He brought his face close to mine and forced me to cent
Alive - Chapter II made my way around the market. The wind softly played with my long hair, sending tresses to fly on their own. I felt the warmth of the sun on my skin and relaxed to its motions. I stared down at my friend, who accompanied me on my way. His purple eyes stared into the distance, registering every little movement the townsfolk around him made. His friendly look turned to me and he smiled.
My mouth changed form into a laugh as I got caught in his gaze and stroked my bangs out of sight. I sent my attention to the citizens around me, busy carrying supplies from place to place. Some golden coins dropped to the ground as people opened pockets to pay. A small child ran past me and picked up a coin. His bewildered hair danced as he ran away as fast as he could, hoping no man had noticed him. His appearance turned my smile to dust. The skinny legs that carried him, his worn-out face, clothes which couldn't last another day; an aweful sight. But no one has ever helped a kid like him, not in a to
Alive - Prologue"Run away!"
I was clenched onto my brother's arm and refused to let go. He defended himself with his giant sword against the approaching soldiers. The town behind us sank to the ground as time ticked further, surrendering to the destroying flames. More people screamed as they tried to escape the burning houses and bullets flying through the air like hawks. The stench of blood and fear entered my mind, slowly dulling my senses. I shook my head to clear it. I didn't understand.
My brother raised his sword higher, steadily and calmly. He was clearly in control of his emotions and didn't show a trace of anger. I said nothing. I was trying to stay calm under the enormous pressure I felt. Laroran soldiers raised guns at the both of us, coming out from every direction possible. Their silver armor shone brightly in the red light coming from the fire behind us.
"Give up, brat," a soldier scolded and stepped closer to my brother, checking the ammo in his grey colored gun. The bright golden bulle
