Beyond the Borders Volume 1
The sergeant had a puzzled look on his face as he looked to the young
boy standing there at attention. He was no older then his own son and
had the chance to do anything other then join the military. Yet, here he
Klryizer Kozyki, age sixteen, ready to join the Sylverian Army and serve
until his dying breath. The sergeant looked over to his commanding
officer, unsure of what to do.
“Are you sure you want to join the military boy?” the man asked as he
blew a puff of smoke from his mouth.
Within that moment Klryizer joined the military and began his training.
Even though he was young he did remarkably well for someone who had no
prior training. Unlike his peers he even managed to claw his way up to
the rank of Master Sergeant by the age of eighteen.
\* \* \*
Klryizer laid in his bed as he stared up at the ceiling. He wanted to do
more then partake in scouting and recon missions. Training new privates
also bored him to the point that he contemplated if suicide would be the
best way to end it.
Before he could think about any other ways to end his life there was a
knock at his door. Believing it was one of his friends Klryizer did not
bother to get dressed and decided to stay in his black boxer‑briefs.
However, when he opened the door he was surprised to see a woman with
long crimson flowing hair and red gleaming eyes. Her black tank‑top
clearly exposed her bountiful breast but showed no rank or name. She
wore an olive‑drab pair of cargo pants and black combat boots.
“So, you’re Master Sergeant Kozyki?” she asked as she removed the
cigarette from her mouth.
*Who is this girl*, Klryizer thought as he looked over the woman
standing before him. It was impossible to know who this girl was due to
her lack of a name‑tag. The only things that stood out to him were the
fact on her left hand she only had on a black finger‑less glove and the
skull tattoo wrapped in chains on her left shoulder. Even still, this
was not much to go off of.
“My name is Major Lyreh Nyaruk.”
Like a fast of lightning Klryizer stood at attention and saluted.
“At ease soldier. There is no need to salute me or any of that crap,”
she said with a nonchalant tone.
After inhaling another bit of her cigarette she blew a cloud of white
smoke in his direction.
“May I come in?”
Lyreh entered the room as Klryizer wondered what this woman wanted with
“I will get straight to the point Sergeant Kozyki. I have been watching
your progress for some time and I feel you would be a great member for
“What squad would that be ma’am?”
“I swear by the goddesses if you call me ma’am one more time I will pull
your cock out so hard that you have a permanent erection.”
Klryizer quickly went silent.
“You may have heard rumors of elite special forces groups that are apart
of the military branches, yes?”
“I have. I take it you are from one of these branches then?”
“That is correct. I am apart of the branch known as the Death Stalkers.
We are the special forces of the army branch.”
“Well, that is certainly a badass name.”
“Indeed. Now, I won’t force you to join but give it—”
“I will join you.”
Lyreh had a shocked expression upon her face.
“Are you sure?”
“Yes. I have waited and felt nothing but boredom as nothing interesting
happens day after day. I am tired of it.”
“Well, you won’t be bored anymore, I can promise you that.”
\* \* \*
After getting dressed Klryizer followed Lyreh down the city streets in
the mid‑day. Klryizer wasn’t sure where she was taking him but it was
clear that the location was far from the academy. Lyreh stopped in front
of a large wooden building that seemed like nothing more then a common
“This looks like an inn.”
“So it would seem,” Lyreh replied as she headed for the front entrance.
Standing at the doorway Klryizer noticed a young girl with orange hair
and pink eyes. She was dressed in a black strapless sweater, black pants
and shoes to match. While Klryizer wondered if the girl ever slept due
to the bags under her eyes, it was actually nothing more then eyeliner.
“Master Sergeant Klryizer, meet First Lieutenant Celeste Degullhert.”
“It is a pleasure to meet you ma’am—”
Celeste shot an angry glare at Klryizer as if to say *call me that again
and I will kill you*.
“Kid, you need to stop being so formal. Death Stalkers don’t need to
worry about rank unless rank is necessary,” Lyreh said as she entered
Celeste entered afterwards followed by Klryizer. The inn looked just
like any other decently kept up inn. Polished wooden dark oak floors,
and pine oak wooden walls had a fresh scent to them. Lyreh made her way
up to the counter where a young woman stood in a maid outfit. Her brown
hair was tied into two pigtails and her gray eyes had a warm, calm
expression to them.
“Feel free to head downstairs Lyreh,” the girl said with a smile.
Lyreh motioned for Klryizer to follow as he seemed a bit confused as to
what was going on. They headed to the back and down a set of stairs
leading into an underground cave system. This took Klryizer by surprise.
“I had no idea this inn had such a cave system under it.”
“Yeah, as Death Stalkers we work better when people can’t find us.”
The three of them continued on through the dimly lit cave until they
came to a wooden door that seemed to be in great condition. Beyond the
door was a large room that appeared to be with technology that appeared
completely foreign to Klryizer. Near the back was a young girl who was
aiming a rifle at a paper target. With each shot of the rifle her blue
pigtails bounced from the force. Klryizer was surprised by the fact the
girl could fire off five shots without having to stop to reload the
“Ellie, take a break for a second.”
“All right Major,” she said as she placed the weapon on the gun rack
Ellie skipped merrily over to the others as Klryizer wondered just what
this room was.
“I am sure you have many questions,” Lyreh said as Klryizer looked
around the room.
“Yeah, just one or two.”
“First things first, this cheerful little pixie is Captain Ellie Iysa,
our medical expert and engineer.”
“Nice to met ya!” Ellie said with a cute smile.
“Likewise, I am Master Sergeant Klryizer Kozyki.”
“Now, I bet the biggest question on your mind is about this room
“Well, it would be nice to know just what it is. Some of this stuff
looks rather… different, to say the least.”
Klryizer began to wander around the room taking note of all the new
technology he had yet to ever see.
“This room holds technology that is usually ten years ahead of the
times. We always need to be ahead of the times. Don’t worry, you will
get to used to and understand the equipment here.”
“Also you will be staying at the inn here. Your stay will be free of
course, just try not to destroy the place.”
Lyreh showed Klryizer to his new room on the third floor of the inn. It
was a common room with nothing more then a soft bed and wooden table in
“I will get someone to move your stuff here. For now, you should sleep.
In five hours we will be training.”
Without another word Lyreh left as Klryizer stood in the destitute room.
\* \* \*
Twilight fell upon the City of Priserra as Klryizer awoke from his
dream. He was a bit tired but knew he had to be ready for his first day
of training as a Death Stalker. Before he could get dressed there was a
knock at the door.
Lyreh stood at the door dressed in a black outfit that looked odd to
him. *Just what kind of outfit is she wearing*, he thought as he looked
over her whole body. In her hands was the same uniform she was wearing.
“Here. Put this on.”
Without another word Lyreh closed the door behind her. Klryizer laid out
the uniform on his bed piece by piece. All of the pieces of the uniform
were as black as the night sky. The only spec of color was a white skull
on the left shoulder of the dress jacket. *Black shirt, black jacket,
black cargo pants. These guys really love their black*, Klryizer thought
as he put on the uniform. Once he had the whole uniform on he made his
way out the door.
“Not bad kid, you look scary.”
“Thank you ma’am.”
Lyreh sighed heavily.
“I thought I told you to stop calling me ma’am.”
“S‑Sorry. What should I call you then?”
“You can just call me Major,” she said as she pulled the hood of her
jacket over her head.
The two of them headed down to the Death Stalker lair and down a long —
almost never ending — tunnel until they came to a ladder that led up.
How far up, Klryizer was uncertain. As the two of them climbed up the
ladder that appeared to go on forever they came to a wooden trapdoor.
Upon opening the trapdoor Klryizer was able to see the moonlight beam
down onto the ruins around him.
Standing against the ruined wall of what used to be a house Celeste and
Ellie looked as if they had been waiting for some time. They were both
dressed in the same uniform as him and Lyreh. Both of them held in their
hands a black rifle with a one hundred forty‑six millimeter pipe
attached to the end of the barrel.
“Welcome to the Death Stalker’s training grounds.”
\* \* \*
Klryizer looked up to the stars and thought about how far he had come. A
whole year had passed and he had managed to go on many *black
operations* as they were called. *Lyreh was right, it is never boring as
a Death Stalker*, Klryizer thought. As Klryizer laid back in the soft
meadow he was startled by Ellie looming over him. Ellie giggled as he
quickly stood to his feet.
“The Major wants to see us. She said it was urgent.”
With haste the two of them headed into the Death Stalker’s base of
operations where Lyreh and Celeste were waiting. In front of them was a
blueprint of a building that seemed familiar to Klryizer.
“All right, looks like everyone is here. Lets begin,” Lyreh said as she
blew a puff of smoke.
Klryizer and Ellie gathered around the table and looked over the map in
front of them.
“Terrorist have held up in a library here in Priserra. We believe they
are holding several hostages, however, their motive is unknown.”
“Do we know how many terrorist there are?” Celeste asked.
“From what the police could tell there could be as many as six.”
“And the hostages?” Ellie added.
“We are unsure but our guess is three or four. There is one confirmed
“Rules of Engagement?” Klryizer asked as he looked over the map,
memorizing everything on it.
“Terrorist are to be killed on‑site.”
Without another word the team geared up in their trademark
<abbr>BDU</abbr> and readied their weapons. As they pulled up their
hoods they headed through the cave until they came up to the inn. Unlike
a normal soldier the Death Stalkers used the roof tops of houses to make
their way to the large library.
The four of them stood on top of a nearby rooftop as they looked to the
library a few meters out. Police surrounded the building on all sides,
their single‑shot rifles aimed at the building. People gathered at the
ends of street as other police officers tried to keep the crowd at bay.
“How do you suppose we enter the building Major?” Klryizer asked.
“We can enter through the roof hatch just there,” Lyreh said pointing to
the small building with a door on top of the roof.
“It looks like we will need to head through that tall building next to
the library to gain access to the roof,” Ellie said.
“Right, lets go then,” Lyreh said as she headed down a flight of stairs.
\* \* \*
Klryizer was the last to silently land on the roof of the library. The
team quickly spread out as they held their weapons at the ready — aimed
at the door ahead of them. With the sun beaming down it was obvious that
the Death Stalkers were out of their element, still, this was nothing
more then training to them.
Lyreh quickly gestured with a few hand signals for everyone to converge
on the door. Moving with speed and haste they made their way to the
sides of the door and waited for Lyreh’s orders. Ellie placed her hand
on the door handle and slowly tried to open it. After a few seconds
passed she waved her hand. Klryizer and the others knew from the signal
that the door was locked. Ellie — being an engineer — pulled out a
device used to pick locks. Within a few seconds she had the door
unlocked and opened. Rushing in with her weapon at the ready Lyreh made
her way down the small stairwell as the others followed behind her.
Everyone moved silently like a mouse down the stairs — their weapons at
a low‑ready position — until they came to a small room with a door.
Klryizer knew they were on the third floor now and recalled how the door
opened up to a large room.
Lyreh looked to her team. Her left hand moved quickly, yet her team knew
exactly what she was saying. *Spread out and clear the floor; move on to
the next floor only when everyone is ready*. To an outsider these odd
waves of the hand looked like nothing but to the Death Stalkers it was
like a secret code or language they could speak in. Once she was
finished Lyreh ordered everyone at the ready.
Three… two… one…
Within a fraction of a second Lyreh opened the door to the main room and
rushed in, covering the front. Ellie stormed in from the right side as
Celeste crossed over to the opposite side. All three of them covered
their arcs of fire as Klryizer followed soon after providing covering
fire if the team needed it. Lyreh signaled for everyone to move out and
clear the area. Each of them stalked down the bookshelf aisles with
their weapons at the ready. If any terrorist were here it would be to
late for them to know what happened.
Once they had cleared all the aisles everyone moved down the second
story stairwell, quickly but quietly. They repeated the same tactic as
they had before once they got to the second floor. Klryizer stalked one
of the aisles as he held his rifle at the ready. No target. At the end
of aisle he made a sharp turn and headed down the one juxtaposed to it.
One terrorist came into his field of view. Like a bolt of lightning he
squeezed off one round into the head of the unsuspecting man. The gun
made almost no sound as the bullet pieced through the man’s skull and
dropped him to the hard tiled floor. Without stopping Klryizer continued
on, walking over the man’s body as if nothing was there.
Two more bodies hit the ground with a subtle thud. *So, three terrorist
on this floor*, Klryizer thought as he continued to clear the rest of
the aisles. *That means there should be three left*. Celeste stood at
the stairwell leading down to the first floor, covering it in case
anyone made their way up it. Once the floor was clear everyone converged
on Celeste’s location. Before the others could regroup Celeste noticed a
shadow heading up the spiral stairs just below her. As the figure came
into view she noticed it was a young woman. Even though she wore a mask
over her face it was clear by her body that she was to slender to be a
man. Before the girl could react Celeste fired off one round into the
girl’s head. Her body quickly fell limp onto the hard stairs, however,
her ragged body started to tumble down the stairs creating a loud and
Lyreh ordered everyone to get down the stairs immediately. With extreme
haste everyone rushed down the stairs just as the door to the first
floor was being opened. Ellie fired off two bullets into the man’s heart
as the squad continued into the room. They aimed their weapons on the
final terrorist who was smart enough to use one of the hostages as a
The first floor of the library was a large open space. There were no
aisles and the only notable object was a wooden desk off to the side
were the librarian would sit. Three hostages sat against the walls with
their wrist and ankles bound with tape. Most of the girls appeared to be
young, possibly in their early to mid‑twenties. What was odd to Klryizer
was the fact that each of the girls didn’t have any shoes on and their
pants were pulled down to their ankles.
The final terrorist held his pistol against the young girl’s head.
Everyone trained their weapons on man, hoping for a clear shot. Even if
they were Death Stalkers of an elite special forces they too had to
follow the *Military Code of Laws*.
“It’s over. Turn yourself over to the police and end this game,” Lyreh
The man laughed as the young girl started to pee on herself due to the
fear. Within a split second the man fired off a shot that hit Ellie.
Klryizer had but a fraction of a second to react. One squeeze of the
trigger forced the bullet on a path into the man’s hand forcing him to
not only release the hostage but also drop the gun. As the young girl
fell out of the way Celeste and Lyreh fired off only one round each.
Neither of the shots were heard as the man dropped to floor like a log.
“Klry, release the hostages.”
Klryizer pulled out his dagger and freed each of the hostages as quickly
as he could.
“T‑Thank you,” said one of the girls.
“No problem. Get out of here, okay,” Klryizer said as he sheathed his
Lyreh and Klryizer gathered around the body of their fallen friend and
teammate as Celeste held her in her arms. No one said a word as she
cried in Ellie’s lifeless chest. Water magic could heal cuts and numb
some pain but not even water magic would be able to bring back a person
that took a bullet to the head. This was the first time Klryizer had
watched a friend of his die in front of him.
\* \* \*
As he laid their in his bed Klryizer wondered if he could have saved
Ellie that day. It had been one month since he had lost his friend. The
thoughts continued to eat away at him as he laid their in nothing but
his boxers, drinking the strongest beer he could get his hands on.
*There had to be something I could have done*, he thought.
Before he could drink himself to death there was a knock at his door. He
didn’t have to open the door to know who it was but he did anyways.
“Klry, do you ever wear pants?”
“Do you ever stop smoking?”
“Fair enough. To get straight to the point, you did all you could so let
it go. Ellie would not want you to do this to yourself.”
“You’re right Major… its just hard…”
“I hope you don’t mean the thing between your legs.”
“I guess your not in the mood for jokes.”
“No, now what do you want Major?”
“Come down to the cave.”
“I would rather stay in bed.”
“That wasn’t a request,” Lyreh said with glaring eyes.
Lyreh glared an evil glare but decided to let it go as she headed for
the stairs. Klryizer proceeded to get dress and made his way down to the
cave system under the inn. Upon entering the room where her first met
Ellie he was surprised to see a young girl with her blue tied into
pigtails like Ellie, however, her eyes were not like hers. The girl that
stood before him had forest green eyes and dressed in a light blue
“Klry, allow me to introduce you to Captain Alysha Tokimiku. She was a
medic for the Seamen Guard. Captain Tokimiku this is Second Lieutenant
“Wait Major, you can’t just promote me on a whim.”
“I can, I did, so take it and shut up,” Lyreh said with a smile.
Klryizer waved his hand as if to say *fine, fine*. Alysha simply smiled
that the two of them with their banter.
“Anyways, starting today she will be the medic on our squad.”
\* \* \*
A few days had passed as Klryizer ate his meal alone. He was in his
boxers as always eating a plain sandwich like most of his days. Before
he could finish his second sandwich there was a knock at his door. *What
does the Major want now*, Klryizer thought as he got up from the wooden
“What do you want now Maj—”
Before he could finish his sentence he stopped as he realized that the
person at his door was not Lyreh.
“Oh, Alysha, what brings you by?”
Alysha had a shocked look on her face as she stared at him. Klryizer
suddenly realized he was in his underwear in front of a girl that wasn’t
“Sorry about that. I am just used to being… well, like this. I can put
on some pants.”
“No, it’s fine. I was just taken by surprise,” she said slightly
“Feel free to come in,” he said opening the door.
Alysha made her way inside as Klryizer closed the door behind her. She
removed her shoes by the door and placed a bag she had been holding in
her hands for some time on the wooden table.
“I came by to offer you some food,” she said with a bewitching smile.
“That was nice of you, but I was just about to finish this sandwich and
then go train out in the field a bit.”
“Even though its our day off?”
“It is important to stay in shape.”
“I understand. It is a shame that I have to let all this food I made go
“Wait, you made all of it?”
“Of course. Don’t you make your own food?”
“Nope, I just buy whatever is cheap at the store and be done with it.”
Alysha couldn’t help but giggle a bit.
“You men would be hopeless without us women, huh,” she said with a wink.
“What do you mean?”
“Nothing. Why don’t you sit and eat. We have a lot of food to eat up.”
The two of them ate the food in silence for some time. Klryizer was
beguiled by the food that Alysha had prepared that he could not help but
stuff his face. Alysha seemed to enjoy the scene of him eating until his
stomach was full. He soon headed over to his bed and laid on his back,
unable to hardly move.
“That was too good.”
“And I didn’t even have to remove my clothes,” Alysha giggled.
Klryizer could not help but laugh at the horrible joke as he held his
stomach that looked as if it was about to pop. Alysha sat down beside
“I need to go and run for fifteen kilometers.”
“As a doctor I might be able to help you.”
“Do whatever you like but I need to be up and out there in thirty
Alysha gently placed her hand on his stomach and slowly began to rub it
gently. Klryizer found himself closing his eyes and drifting off to
sleep within a short span of five minutes. A few hours passed until it
was nearing nightfall. Klryizer awoke from his sleep taking note that
Alysha was still there.
“I guess that training will have to wait,” Alysha said with a smile.
“I take it I slept longer then I had planned?”
“Just a bit. You also seemed to be under a lot of stress.”
“What makes you say that?”
“Well, considering I could see your boner through your boxers and the
stuff that came out. No pun intended there.”
“If it was someone else, yeah, probably, but I am a doctor so I have
seen many things, trust me.”
Klryizer stood up from the bed and stretched a bit. He knew he would
have to make up for all his missed training.
“Meet me outside on the training grounds in twenty minutes,” Alysha said
with a smile as she left.
Klryizer grabbed his military dress uniform and headed for the showers
to get clean. As the warm water fell onto his body he wondered about
Alysha and what she meant by her comment. Was he really stressed over
what had happened to Ellie? After a few minutes of soaking in the shower
he dried himself off and proceeded to get dressed. Without any further
delay Klryizer headed out to the training field. He noticed that the
moon was up and it was nearing 2200 hours according to his watch. *I
should have used that alarm feature on this thing to wake up on time*,
Klryizer thought as he walked down the street.
Alysha stood there out in the open meadow of the training field as she
looked up to the night sky.
“I hope you didn’t wait long,” Klryizer said walking up to her.
“Not to long,” Alysha said turning to Klryizer with a smile.
“All right well, lets start.”
Alysha giggled like a school girl.
“What is it?”
“You just seem so serious about training. Its cute.”
Klryizer scratched the back of his head, slightly embarrassed by the
comment. Without another word the two of them began to do push‑ups and
sit‑ups managing to do two hundred of each in less than three minutes.
Klryizer showed off by doing his push‑ups with one hand switching to the
other between one hundred sets.
Once the two of them were finished they both lined up, ready to run for
“Twenty kilometers here and back, winner has to buy drinks,” Alysha says
getting ready to run.
“All right. Three… two… one—”
Before Klryizer could say go Alysha ran ahead.
“Hey, that’s cheating!”
“Hehe, I guess you have to catch me then.”
The two of them ran for twenty kilometers and turned back the same
direction they had came. *Hard to believe this girl can ran faster then
me even though we are the same age*, Klryizer thought as he continued to
fall behind her. Alysha chest jiggled with each stride she took. It was
clear to Klryizer that he would have to use his magic to cheat. Without
another thought he quickly gathered his magic and used it to dash closer
and closer to Alysha.
Alysha was close to the finish line from where their race had started as
Klryizer slowly closed the gap between them. Before she crossed the
finish line Alysha turned around which threw off Klryizer. So much so
that he slammed into Alysha with a strong force. The two of them tumbled
against the grass until they finally came to a stop. He was on top of
her; she was underneath him.
“It looks like we both crossed the finish line,” Alysha giggled.
“It would seem so. I wonder who buys the drinks.”
She smiled as his face inched closer to hers.
“Maybe you could buy two drinks and I could stay in your room for a
“I think I would like that.”
Klryizer’s lips pressed against hers. He felt a spark of love between,
as did she.
“Something big is poking my leg,” Alysha said as she looked at what was
“That’s just my penis.”
She couldn’t help but laugh at his direct comment.
“So it is. I don’t do blow jobs on a first date.”
“I didn’t ask you to,” Klryizer said as he kissed her again.
\* \* \*
The sun beamed down on the coastal beach due North some kilometers out.
Klryizer sat there in nothing more then a pair of camo‑patterned cargo
shorts. Alysha sat beside him in a jaded green swimsuit that looked more
like a dress, her boots and socks removed as she dug her toes into the
It had been close to two month since they had started dating and both of
them were quite happy with each others companionship.
“Hey babe, where do you see yourself in the future?” Alysha asked
looking to Klryizer.
“I never think about the future all that much.”
“Do you think we should get married one day?”
Klryizer smiled as he kissed her forehead.
“I would love to. We could have a kid, most likely a son.”
Alysha smiled as she grabbed him by the wrist and pinned him down
against the sand. She straddled his hips and kissed his lips while he
returned the tender kiss with a gentle bite.
“I would love to have many kids but if we only had one, it would have to
be a girl.”
“Well, you are beautiful. I guess a daughter will be fine,” Klryizer
said with a smile.
“Babe… your poking me again.”
“You started it.”
“At least my clothes are covering it up. One day I am going to give you
an injection to control those erections,” she said with a wink.
“Or you could just touch it.”
“You would like that, wouldn’t you?”
“I would like for you to kiss me.”
Without another word Alysha kissed his lips gently. After a few months
had passed the two of them got married and shared one room at the inn
\* \* \*
The new year sun greeted Klryizer as he laid there in his bed. Alysha
laid there next to him in nothing but a pink pair of underwear. Klryizer
looked over to the girl in his bed who has now his wife and pregnant
with their daughter. She was given an honorable discharge from the
military while Klryizer had been allowed a few months off with pay.
As Klryizer slowly played with Alysha’s hair she opened her eyes to see
her husband smiling at her. With a soft smile she laid her head on his
chest as he continued to play with her hair.
“Do you have to leave tomorrow?”
“Yeah, you know how the military is.”
She slowly ran her hand down his stomach as she smiled wryly.
“Where are you exploring?”
“Oh, just seeing what is downtown,” she said with a wink.
Alysha slowly removed her bra revealing her voluptuous breast as she
straddled his hips.
“I’ll be right back,” she said pulling the covers over his lower half.
After a few seconds she giggled in a cute giddy tone.
“Oh my, it looks like you are standing at attention for me.”
“Well, you are half‑naked.”
Suddenly, Klryizer could feel Alysha removing his boxers as her finger
traced the most sensitive area on his body.
“You know, if the gun starts firing there will be splash damage.”
“I don’t mind a bit of friendly fire. Just be sure to finish the job.”
“If you keep that up I will.”
