56 Days Until Orders And the Uncertain End (pt 3)

It turned out that practical experience was better for people. Just as Evester suspected, from his won experience, most of those who had joined him forty-eight hours prior, were better skilled than they had been before. With each Aralax that they killed, the better they got at killing more Aralax.

Evester collapsed on the bed. It was early in the night or early in the morning. He was not sure what time and he did not want to look at his watch. They were at the right city, to assist for the next major battle he had to face. In a few hours he’d have to get up, assist with last minute preparations and fight training, before he went off to get pretty and hooked up for the cameras. The idea of having to shave, and do his hair made him want to groan. His image was important but was it that important? He knew that there would be no way to erase the dark circles under his eyes, so perhaps he could get away with not being as done up, and a bit of stubble?

He hoped that the others were not having nearly the same amount of sleepless nights. He also hoped that they were. He wanted to see them as tired as he was. As he closed his eyes, he could picture Zeydar’s face. Perhaps it was the spite that had grown in the time that he had been forced to work on his own that made him wish ill on them. He was not sure. Not anymore. He was tired.

Heia looked over the time tables and her new schedule for training, as Kim sat across from her, looking over personal notes that Kim had taken. There was a lot to do and not much time. If they implemented the full training, there would be little more movement that could be done. Heia looked back at the timeline and then to her notes. If only they had started earlier. If only the world had believed Maverin. If only… There were too many if only’s and the present moment did not care for any of them. The way the world was, was what they had to work with.

She’d make sure they made it to the end.

“When we leave are those going to Europa?” Heia asked peeking at Kim’s notes.

“Yes, their detailed notes on all the X leaders.” Kim said holding up the notes with a quick wink and a smile.

“Were you stalking them?”

“Reading them in a way, yes.” Kim laughed.

56 Days Until Orders And the Uncertain End (pt 1)

Zeydar stood with his hood up, walking towards the meeting that was being held in his honor. Kony jogged after him, with May. Neither of them would be allowed in, but they’d walk him as far as they could. Kony continued to recite lectures and concepts to Zeydar, in preparation for his tests later. When they stood at the door, he stopped speaking.

“Doesn’t seem real.” Kony looked over the intricate detailing on the door. He then stared at Zeydar. “You’ll be okay? Don’t drink strange things.”

“We’ve been waiting for this for a day. We knew it was coming.” May sighed. “We’ll be out here.”

The EverDanger video was live. The camera feed recordings were public. Everyone knew. It did not take the investigators going out to see the scorch marks, to confirm. Everyone knew he had done it, and because he had done it, they were safe. There had been no attacks since Zeydar tested his abilities in full. The Igilistals, Kony, May, and Zeydar had been waiting on bated breath to get the call from the Superiors.

57 Days Until Longing And the Uncertain End

Evester looked at Ms. Jymes one last time before she nodded. Her city had been thoroughly evacuated as had the entire area around them. It was a desolate land, without a single human life. Other places had been evacuated under the urging of Evester’s message and Ms. Jymes reaching out to them over the radio. As people moved from smaller residences to larger ones for evacuation, Evester’s team was switching over to assisting them. He looked at his maps to see where the smaller Aralax attacks would happen.

“We have a few more large battles.” Karla asked looking at the map. “Then we meet up?”

Evester nodded. The date had officially been decided. In one week, Evester would see his family again. In one week he would see Heia again. In one week he’d see Zeydar again and when he saw Zeydar, Evester knew he’d begin courting. He was not sure that Zeydar had finished the Golden book. If he had, it would make things all the more easy. Evester wanted to see Zeydar and to touch him and to…

Heia sat with Alan Penn, Kim, and many people on computer screens including Uly, Maverin, Europa, and Estashia. Uly looked a bit worse for wear. His stern face had lost weight, and overall he looked as if he were not sleeping at all. He looked the way that she felt, after having gotten little to no sleep from the battle the night before.

“As it is right now.” Maverin looked over his notes. “We probably have no more than twenty days to whip the whole world into action.”

“Will we be able to implement the changes in that time?” One of the world leaders asked Alan.

“The whole of all the armies have been taught and trained in the techniques that Evester gave us.” Alan Penn admitted. “Implementing the changes and formations that Heia and her teams created will take time.”

Zeydar had just enough energy to say good night, as he walked past the bustling dining room. He wanted nothing more than to get into his bed and call it a night. He’d missed two days of work, and the Superiors were undoubtedly looking for him. He knew that he had to tell Maverin his discoveries, but his mind was spinning too much for him to focus.

“How is your cold?” Europa asked him before he could get too far.

Cold? He turned back to her, eyeing her confused. His body ached. His head was pounding. He probably did look like he had a cold, but he knew that the house had full knowledge of his schemes. “Terrible.”

The cold must be what the told the Stars that came looking, which meant that he could not simply fall asleep. He was going to have to talk, and hated the fact of it more with each passing moment. Walking on to his room, Zeydar did not hesitate to get clean. Upon changing, he made his way to Estashisa’s study to report, finding Kony and May sitting along with Marjorie.

“Move on ahead.” Heia ordered, rushing forward, reading her attack agains the next wave that was before her. There were only a few left in their area.

“Retreat.” Another order came at the same time that she spoke.

“Why?” Heia asked as she sliced an Aralax down.

“Not us.” Lynx answered.

59 Days Until Mastery And the Uncertain End (6) 

It wasn’t that Zeydar couldn’t use his magic without a physical manifestation of the element. It was that with the physical manifestation, his magic was stronger. It was for that reason he kept the fire from the water and the fire from the plants. He kept the earth from being submerged and continued to throw around his wind like it was nothing. The more he had to work with, separated, the better his skills were and the easier it was to manipulate.

Attack after attack, Zeydar felt as if his mind and body were expanding. Explosion after explosion, he lost himself in the rhythm of it. Kony, May, and Shawn were additional actors, additional musicians that aided him in the silence as he learned more about his magic than he had ever known. Class One Mages were significantly different than Class Two. Kony and May were the perfect example of the distinction. Where May would get tired and worn out, Kony was able to almost keep up with Zeydar the whole night. Although Kony knew less, his output and stamina were greater than her’s naturally. He had to pace himself differently, and he rarely used magic as it was, as he did not have the control, but Kony was better suited to running along side Zeydar than May was. Perhaps it was from his experiences on the run, however his magic was fundamentally larger with a greater pool. Kony was able to heal Zeydar each time that Zeydar’s magic snapped back at him from over use.

Evester turned his blade in his hand, switching his grip, and stabbed up into the base of the neck of the Aralax that was headed for him. He then stepped to the side and ducked as Karla cut off the head of another. He, Crass, and Karla spiraled around each other, in the thick of the bodies. Gun fire rained down from above as snipers took out the clear targets. 

There was the sound of a deafening thud, and Evester looked back to see another Aralax fall. This one was stripped a bit, but Evester did not have time to investigate. He hurried to keep fighting, on a narrow minded path, reaching forward when Karla stopped him. All of the Aralax in the area froze. There was a long moment where Evester was confused before he looked to Karla who shook her head.

“W should kill them.’ Crass hissed.

Heia stepped out to the cool ground, eyes up, lights off from the vehicle and their holoblades. Her night goggles lit up with movement far enough away that she knew that the Aralax would see them soon, if they were not already on their way.

“Go.” Heia said as she raced forward with her team, igniting her holoblade in one hand before she grabbed the weapon with both hands. The Circle that worked with her was skilled, as was the mage behind them both. Magic lit up their field in flames, electricity, and cool light. Holoblades of different color, wove a path together as Aralax bodies began to drop.
