Gems Of Light
Skye: Today is the ceremonial day of the sunfruit festival, yet all I am really doing is to be a laborer instead of an audience member.
Guard:You’re one of the laborers for the sunfruit festival?
Guard: You’re going to need that enthusiasm come this way.
Guard:The boats for the Sunfruit festival are in need of last minute repairs since the guy who was supposed to be repairing it was found dead this morning after in a drunken stupor, he accidentally tripped into the canal and there wasn’t anyone around to rescue his sorry bum and now look at what happens when one falls into ones own vices. Hopefully you won’t be as brash as to fall for that mistake since you’re younger than that sorry sob story of a laborer.
Skye:Alright I'll get started on it right away!
Merra:Oh hi Skye!
Skye:Oh hey Princess!
Merra:Please call me Merra!!
Skye:Oh right! Sorry about that!
Merra:Getting excited for the sunfruit festival!
Skye:Yeah, I'm almost done fixing up the boats for the festival and I should be able to join you and Xavis soon.
Xavis:And speak of the devil itself.
Merra:Oh hey Xavis!
Xavis:I see you are still working in the gutters I see.
Skye:Yep! Can't really say I envy the kind of position the king must have with taking care off all these people.
Xavis:To be in such a position with all that power I'm amazed it hadn’t went through his head yet.
Merra: My father always has been very generous while his companions on the other hand fall for such foolish schemes and it always ends up with them thrown to the dungeons.
Xavis: Power is a fickle thing indeed. The king still even with the amount of tragidies he’s faced such as his wife passing away from illness to taking us in as our own children.
Merra:I remember it as it was yesterday.
Skye:I remember we both were street rats and now here we are both in the protection of him as when we got caught stealing scraps of food at a banquet one day instead of being thrown to dungeon he took us in with his kindness.
Merra:For the first time in our lives we finally felt as of someone was watching over us instead of us watching ourselves for survival a cruel way to live.
Xavis:Since then we received the best of education based on our own personal capabilities and we are lucky to have him as our father figure. I have chosen knighthood,while Merra has took diplomacy and Skye you chosen to work in infrastructure. Not many would think you are a kings son no offense due to your own scrappy looks and outlook.
Skye:Yeah I always like building things and to create is to really express how wild ones own imagination can get.
Merra: I never thought I would have been a princess yet here I am and I do my best to be a helper and friend of a people instead of being seen as just “a princess”.
Skye:I know you’ll be well as a princess.
Merra:Thank you Skye!
Xavis:I see the boats are finished already.
Skye:Too bad I can’t attend the ceremony.
Merra:Don’t worry! As long as you stick with me and Xavis everything is going to be fine always has been.
Skye:And always will be.
Xavis:The ceremony is about to start!
Merra:It looks like the sun fruit blossoming is going to happen at any moment now and only a century does this happen.
Skye:This should be really fun!
Merra: I welcome you all and I share nothing but eternal gratitude for this centuries blossom of the sunfruit.
Each century is marked by the blossom of the starfruit’s growth and each fruit represents eternal friendship,happiness and love no matter what the hardships of life one must go through we all stay together. Such as has been the way of the Kaito kingdom for as long as this kingdom has been formed.
At this moment the seeds shall be blossoming.
Skye:Hey that’s odd, I don’t see any of the starfruits coming out.
Xavis:Surely they must appear by now.
Skye:Hey why is it getting so dark all of the sudden?
Xavis:Its only middle of the day as well too.
Merra:Be patient as no plant has ever blossomed in one single day of its own alone.
????:Such a worthless tradition wouldn’t you think?
Merra:Who are you!!?
Xavior: Xavior the star weaver, and former spiritual advisor of the now deceased king.
????: Weak ruler he was and such a triviality as this is worthless and not any kind of true power.
Merra: Why would you even do this!!???
????: If only you knew the truth behind such a thing. Now lieutenants.
Xavis:Not so fast villains!!!
????1:I don’t think so punk.
Xavis:Hey let me go!! You won’t get away with this!!
????2:Typical heroic bravado how charming.
Xavior: Heroism as a front how charming try telling that to the kingsmen on what they were really doing.
????3: I don’t think so little boy.
Skye: Let go of my friends you jerks!!
Xavior: This crown of the now recently deceased “dearly beloved” king has fallen and his bastard children are really just nothing more than political pawns for sympathy of the foolish people of this realm. Men vanish them!!!
????3:GOT IT YOUR HIGHNESS!!!
Xavior: Friendship itself is not a strength.
Skye: Is your cruelty a strength itself!!
Xavior:You weakling have no hopes to defeat me and to defeat me I shall play fair unlike your former king. Collect each pieces of these stones and this sword shall be your key but tread carefully as this sword is your lifeforce as of now. As this sword is cursed and you have only 4 days to master all of the elements of this sword in order to truly defeat me. Each 4 days you will be in a realm of hell that I personally crafted for you and all others to go through as you clearly are naïve to what it is your village really is as well as the darkness that it lurks within as well too. No one has ever survived this journey and if you ever did, consider it a rare miracle that has finally happened as this world has none.
Skye: I’ll accept your challenge if that means stopping you and your lies then so be it!!
Xavior: I’ll see you in 4 days then.
????1:Sir are you sure this is such a good idea?
????2:Hope is really a illusion created as motivation for the main characters in childrens fairy tales.
????3: Each realm constructed has a danger of its own and its not from this realitiy but of a realitiy of another that cannot really be explained in layman terms.
????4: We weren’t the ones to have really created it, sure it was altered by our whims but only so much one can alter with the powers that be.
????1: Well if the shoe fits then we may as well wear it.
Xavior: Human nature is of self perservation it would only be a matter of time before cowardice would win.
???? 2: Only he could really restore the elemental balance if he wanted too.
Xavior:But we shall see as its only a matter of time before the Armageddon begins.
