[Hr] [/hr] [hr] [/hr]
Age:18
Gender:Male
Element/Type of Magic: Earth-Specialized on Metal : Li uses the metal, a specialization of the earth element, but until now he can only form steel weapons from his hands, and a steel armor around his body. So he can use his two abilities in offensive and defensive, although the metal element is more powerful than what he can do.
Weapon: Those which are created with the help of his steel specialization from the metal element.
Height: 6'2
Weight: 150lb
Image
Appearance: Li has an oval face with sharp eyes, and always a calming look and one that inspires you trust and the belief that he's a good guy. He can stare into someone's eyes with his eyes scaring that person, something he is used with. His purple long hair is always stuck in a queue, with an athletic body developed in years with tough exercises and an abnormal tough life for a person. He always wears Chinese type clothes, a kimono. His kimono has the colors red, having on it's frond a yellow dragon and on the back of the kimono being the Yin and Yang circle.




Personality:Li was learned about manipulation and how to fake his personality. So he can easily pretend to be a good guy, with a big heart, speaking something but in fact thinking something else.Because of his training he's a very convincing liar, although those who have been manipulated by him can realized this and so they won't believe him a second time. In fact he is a serious guy who hates morality and honor, and believes in his own morality and honor imposed by force by the cult's leader

He is a person which likes to observe demons and their Magni in order to analyze them and gather information. When he speaks, he makes sure not blow his cover, although sometimes he can have a weird excitement which can blow him up easily. He always lies and rarely respects a promise, this happens only if he has a hidden scope for which to respect that promise.
If insulted about his origin he can get angry extremely quickly, but if the cult is insulted or the leader he will pretend that he never heard as he doesn't cares about others, and only about him, In fact he only respects his Magni, since it's his only best friend and true friend and always calls him "Master Hwang of Shangri La"a very long name for him, but always apologizes to his dragon when he forgets to call him in that way, the friends he made during his missions were always killed by the cult


Likes:Lying,Spying,Chinese Tea,Powerful Persons,Inteligent persons who posses informations useful for him and the cult.
Dislikes:Morality,Honor,Peoples with an extremely good heart or as he calls them "Saviors"
Flaws: In China the name of Lotus Dragon, cult's name is known also Li's name is known so if someone finds about him than his cover will be blown up. Also Li's companion, just because it's an old dragon might blow up his cover, and sometimes Li gets excited because of his missions and his demon must stop him from that behavior.
Talents:He's a very convincing liar , and so many persons, with some exceptions from those with a strong personality, can believe that Li is just a serious and good guy, In fact he's not, he is a very good liar and a convincing one, with talent in manipulation, skilled at lying, deceiving and other things.
Fears:Being catched during a mission,being killed and losing his demon.



Bio:Li was born in China in the province of Shandong in the provincial capital of Jinan in a rich family. But at the age of one year he was taken from his parents by Jing the leader of a Chinese cult, Lotus Dragon. His father borrowed a sum of money which with the help of it he became rich but since the sum it wasn't payed back Jing took the small child to train and use him in the cult for his own reasons.
During his childhood the boy was taught about human manipulation and how doing it being put to tests every day until he passed them all, tests about manipulation Magni, demons and other things.
In fact he has on his body many scars as punishments for the times when the tests were failed. After some time at the age of 16 the high-top members of the cults secretly decided, since this is the procedure in the cult to decide the new leader also the current leader will not know who is going to be his successor , that Li Wen will be the new cult leader after Jing's death if it will happen naturally or at the hand of the high-top members
. At the age of 8 he saw Hwang, his Magni a small sized dragon and very old one, with which he became friend being the only person that he truly respects and listens to it's advices because Hwang is a wise old dragon. Li became known in China although it isn't the kind of life he wanted but he adapted to it.

Age:820
Gender:Male
Size: Smaller then Li,in fact he can sit on Li's shoulder or head.
Element/Type of Magic: Shadow Element: Hwang is well versed in this element knowing very much about it, being a master with the only two abilities of this element uncommon through the dragons, unlike dragons with fire or water he can make a person sick or make it to have a sensation of fear, but he can use these abilities, one per day, being unable to use it for 1-2 days after it was used. But he mastered it's usage being so effective and the slowdown being of one day, than the normal slowdown of one week for an ability who takes 30% of a Demon's energy.
Induce Sickness: At a very close range, maximum 4 meters he can make a Demon or a person sick for 2 days, and the respective Magni/Person will not be able to move properly, will have to stay in bed during this period. This ability uses 40% so Hwang will use it only during a mission, in order to gain an advantage over someone.
Induce Fear: At a very close range, maximum 4 meters he can make a Demon or a person to have the sensation of fear, for one day, through the sensation and the fear will come from their own fears. This ability uses 40% of Hwang's energy so it's used only during a mission and in extreme situations. like escaping

Image
Appearance:He's a Yin Dragon because of his predominant color Purple on the stomach some part of his body is black and also he has two green diamonds something that makes him unique and a Yin Dragon, he can be recognized by others as a Yin Dragon because of those green scales and his tail. He looks scary and very evil because of those details all around his body, and the orange eyes.




Personality:Because of his age Hwang is a very wise and calculated Demon, in fact his personality covers up the defects of Li's personality. He always gives advices to Li, in any situation, and when needed stop his excitement. He believes in his Li and his abilities and will never say a bad word to him. Since the moment they were together, Hwang always had care of Li and always helped him when needed, he never annoys unless the reason is one concerning Li's life and his safety and is very serious but he can and sometime gives advices to other persons and their companions.

Likes:Other Magni, interesting person, dragons, China, Chess and Good Fights
Dislikes: Arrogant dudes, Li being insulted, Peoples who say that they are going to kill them and intelligent persons who can realize their true role.
Flaws: Hwang always pretends to be something he's not, a mid age dragon with very little experience about everything and a little silly, although there are moments when he can blow his cover. His quotes and advices can make others to be suspicious about him.
Talents: Hwang is very talented at his two abilities, also his personality matches up with Li's personality being a wise demon he can give advices to his partner in order to help him in any kind of situations or with his missions.
Fears: Seeing Li death, being unable to help his friend and being killed being put to choose between two important things.




Bio:Hwang has been just a simple dragon, in the temple of Shangri La in fact hundred of years ago there were two large factions, Yin Dragons and Yang Dragons these two factions were extremely different from ordinary dragons and held a grudge between them for many times each side telling they were superior than the other side until a war started .
For 100 years they fought over control of Shangri La, a secret place in which there was and it's still a temple, but where these two factions shared that isolated and secreted territory from the eyes of the world from the beginning. Of course the victory ended for the Yin Dragons and so since then until the present the Yin Dragons are the ones who are holding the power.
In fact the cult of the Lotus Dragon was formed by a man 600 years ago who had as a partner an YinDragon. Their goal was to revive the Lotus Dragon, their common ancestor. It is known that the Lotus Dragon was the only being of this kind until the 5 gods of earth, water, fire, light and wind, created another dragon to battle with the Lotus Dragon since he became evil and wanted to destroy the world, the Ying Yang dragon won all through both of them died.
As suggested from his name, he splited the Lotus Dragon in two parts Yin Dragons and Yang Dragons, each of them representing Ying and Yan the good and the evil part in that great being. Until Hwang met Li showing to him, he did not have a scope in his life, not known what to do was just a lonely demon never sitting in one place, until the day he showed himself to Li and since then became friends his goal was to help Li become greater than the first cult leader and to help with his goals.

So begins...

Li made his appearance finally but near the academy and late too. He came late unfortunately missing all the good fun. It was his first time at this Academy, but the boy was sure to make others know about him swiftly and with no mistake. He didn't come here to have fun, or to enjoy being learned about magic. He was part of a chess game as an important piece and his duty was to win that game. It seemed that all the odds were with him or at least that was how the situation was currently looking.
Step by step he looked with his full attention at the style in which was built in. Until now everything has been just beautiful nothing important in the Western architectural style. Still Hwang was taking a nap as usual until Li waked him up, in his own calm and silent manner without annoying the dragon. All the time until they came here, he sat on the boy's head. After being waked he asked Li where they are, because he slept all the journey and so he didn't have even the smallest clue where they were."We are just in the right place.
"The boy quickly answered to his dragon, even if he missed everything the demon was going to discover soon where they are.
Now he just had to look for his class, apparently not seeing anyone who could help him with tips. Not a comfortable situation but still one that could have been avoided if he wouldn't have appeared later. And so another 15 minutes were wasted trying to find the class. Finally arriving he opened the door, the two of them saw many persons and demons. It seemed they came really late. Entering the class.
Li this to Mrs Brumfield "I apologize for being late. I am Li Wen and this is my demon, Master Hwang of Shangri La. Can I take a seat? The boy asked politely while looking at the others. The only major difference between them and him was his kimono. A Chinese dude along Westerns, that is what the boy was thinking while looking at them, there were many types of demons and persons."Boy they all look like children on the inside. With no experience in the real and crude life of this world."Hwang told Li in his mind, the boy instead answering loud"Yes you are right."

Kirie
The fact that he turned into a dragon made him smile, a chuckle escaped his lips but stopped when Ms. Brumfield glanced over at him. damn she is going to be a tough one shaking his head Kirie listened to the other students exchange about duels but he was more so focused on his opponent someone by the name of Jayson.

wonder who that is, she must be new if I don’t know them a frown crept its way onto his lips as Kirie leaned forwards to listen closely to what the teacher said next. Kirie stifled a mocking laugh at Giselle who knocked over the teachers mug, shaking his head at her clumsiness.

Ms. Brumfield

“aye dios mio!” sighing Ms. Brumfield shook her head bending down to clean up what was left of her coffee. Standing back up she dropped the remains into the trash bin and faced the class again, her gaze settled on Giselle for a moment before returning back to the others. Kieran caught her attention by the fact that he turned into a cartoonish dragon, which surprised her but not really.

“Kieran sit down, just because I didn’t put your name up doesn’t mean I forgot about you. But seeing as I didn’t put up Jaxsons name either ill leave it be for now.” but Ms. Brumfield wasn’t done, with a slight flick of the wrist a small bolt of electricity was sent right towards Kieran and shocked him. “Now back to the issue at hand as I have already said we are to be doing practice duels, you fail or break the rules(Check OOC) you will be punished” smiling at her students.

Then a late student appeared, “ah Li Wen good to see that you made it. Next time try not to be late. We are going to the practice arena for practice duels. Everyone is in pairs but since you’er late you’ll have to sit this one out as punishment and simply because there is no one else to pair you up with”. Giving Li a kind smile.

Ms. Brumfield then walked out from behind her desk and towards the door, “now let’s go to the practice fields no use in doing it in here”. Soon enough the students arrived in the practice arena. The place was huge with giant archways in front of the stands. Ms. Brumfield stood in the middle of the field and motioned to the first two pairs of oppenents. “start when you are ready, those who are waiting your turns go sit in the stands and devise a plan of action until then be silent, cheer if you must but do not give those fighting any help”. So with that Ms. Brumfield stepped back for those who would fight waiting for when they were ready to start.

So the action was going to begin as Li found himself in the arena. The boy was glad that Mrs Brumfield gave him that punishment. For him it was a divine gift from the gods, as this was the perfect situation to see what his teammates could do and to not show others his abilities. Li wakes Hwang by addressing him with Master Hwang and tells him about the current situation and what happened, because the dragon fell asleep in the class again.
So Hwang and Li were going to keep a close eye on the other students, as the boy's priority was to discover their abilities and to compare them with his own abilities."Master Hwang the humans are the essence of every battle."Hwang immediately responded on a direct tone "And every battle is the essence of their own foolish death."Hwang told Li as the both of them started laughing for a few seconds.
Li observed some of the students, trying to analyze their personalities, as it was something extra important to him. He asked Mrs Brumfield "Excuse me for asking this but after class could I stay at some extra hours? My Demon already has full control over his abilities but I'm not so good as Master Hwang so if you would want to help me with my studies."The boy asked his teacher trying in this way to look good, and also made a strategic move. Everything he was going to do from now on would be to his advantage or his disadvantage.
As the first fight was announced Li and his dragon were looking with a great interest at the two fighters and were watching them carefully, in order to see, remember and to analyze every single move. After looking at the students
Hwang mentioned a blond girl telling him, as they spoke in Chinese just to make sure that if someone heard them that person couldn't figure what they were speaking. "I don't know why she gave up. We must know everyone's abilities."Li listens carefully to Hwang then responds back in Chinese "But I can't go to her and ask,Please fight I really want to know your abilities. If you do this, I can offer you the chance to have a date with me."Hwang hears the boy and starts laughing for a few seconds. Hwang agreed with the boy, even if they wanted to knew everyone's ability, Li could not just ask her to fight proposing in exchange a date with him, it would be too suspicious. Anyway the boy was going to watch the matches from the bottom of the arena, with extreme attention.

Kirie

Kirie watched the duel start with a blank expression on his face. he sat behind a girl with yellow hair(Melody) and a pair of headphones. Kirie I don't like fighting you know that. cant we just forfeit when its our turn? came a meek question from Raimei.I know you don't like to fight but its for the best okay so just bear with me he replied through their telepathic link. Raimei made a strange sound, suddenly Kirie jumped from his seat glaring at where he assumed Raimei was.

"Dammit Raimei that hurt. why'd you shock me for?!" rubbing his wounded hand, Kirie began to produce sparks of electricity but then finally calmed down. shoulders sagging he sat back down guilty for yelling at his demon, who seemed to be crying from Kirie yelling at her. "Gah I'm sorry Raimei I didn't mean to yell please don't cry" he reached towards her now visible form as it phased through the stands. her body cackled while strands of pure electricity reached outwards. "its okay Kirie I'm not crying, i just don't want to hurt someone is all" but the sniffles contradicted what she said.

Kirie sighed in relief and sat back down in his seat. Raimei circled around him for a while until she settled to floating just above his head. but eventually she faded, retreating to her home world of demons.


Ms. Brumfield

she turned to address Li a smile on her face. "of course you can would you prefer to do it private or with others" she asked. but then felt the hair on her neck stand on end and so she turned around to see Kirie an old student of hers beginning to spark in places as he glared at a spot in the air. however it seemed he calmed down and was sitting again though he seemed to be upset. now, now Anya let him be, its probably a little argument with his demon is all. turning back to Li, Ms. Brumfield rubbed her temples and for the first time in a long while wondered why she even bothered to teach these kids.

The boy hears the answer from Mrs Brumfield and replies "With the others. Maybe with her."He said to Mrs Brumfield referring to Melody. Li said while smiling,playing his role, in a normal way for a spy like him. Watching the fight he and his dragon realized that those two were pretty powerful. He was wondering who would win the fight. Just watching them made Li full with a weird excitement."I will go there and.."
In that moment Hwang stopped Li from saying another word. The boy apologized to Hwang, because in this kind of moment Li would have used a surprise attack against one of them and Hwang one of his abilities but this wasn't a fight, they weren't fighting so Li had to keep his cool."Well I must go."
He said to Mrs Brumfield then walked toward Kirie and Melody to take a seat near him.When he will really ask her for a date he was already expecting that she would accept,because the scope of the meeting was just for spying and nothing else.That could prove a good occasion,and a rare opportunity.
"Boy I think you remember what happened with the last one"The dragon's voice told him while Li walked, in Li's consciousness. Li replied back shortly in his consciousness"Yeah I know. She is dead."It wasn't the first time he used this kind of things, the last one got killed after a week with the help of a drug and from some members from the cult It was just his mission to kill her and nothing more. He didn't had something with that girl, she has been just the target of the mission.
Li took a seat near Kirie saying"Hi my name is Li Wen but I think you already know it. Anyway I'm new in this academy so can you tell me some things, about the other students, teacher and hours. Also about her if you want"Li asked him referring to Melody his dragon saying "So you like her."Li responded "Maybe Master Hwang."In fact he pretended to like her, and those questions, it was better for him if he would elementary and basic things, so that Li wouldn't waste time finding something normal but which was essentially for the beginning. The way he talked, was just to make others have a good opinion about him. The boy was saying something, but at any moment he could think of another thing.

Aberdeen let Luciana wander and stalk Opal as she wished, hoping that maybe she’d get some info on her, though not very likely since Lucy simply likes to scare her prey. It seemed the students that refused to battle had to come after school or tomorrow to show Ms. Brumfield their powers. Aberdeen didn’t care much for them, rather seeing it as less people to observe.
“Mrs. Brumfield, Kieran and I would be more than happy to start off I mean it’s easier to get this out of the way now than later right?” a boy with bright orange hair (Jaxon)suggested. ”Also I’d like to have Tama with me he won’t be fighting he just helps me with my magic is all.”

The two opponents, Kieran with dark turquoise hair and the bright orange haired student (she didn’t catch his name) began to battle.

“Alright here we go everyone the fight to end all fights. The bout that could determine the fate of the world. The….” Kieran went on in an announcer voice to rev up the students and bring forth some laughter. Aberdeen couldn’t help but giggle a bit, but she immediately covered her mouth and pretended to look serious. The battle started with Kieran turning into a shadow and traveling behind the orange haired boy and tapping him on the shoulder. Suddenly the boy jumped away, landed on thin air, and taunted Kieran with this arms stretched out in boredom.

Aberdeen decided to turn her eyes to the other match currently in play, the match between Lila and Alexis as Ms. Brumfield had announced. Lila made the first move stretching her arms out wide and creating small orbs of light in both sides of the room. Then she produced four small light blasts towards Alexis. Aberdeen hated seeing the light being a Magni of Shadow typed powers and decided to look away before she could see the effects of the blast. While looking away she decided to search for her demon Luciana, but Lucy was nowhere to be seen near Opal or her demon. Aberdeen looked frantically everywhere wondering who Lucy was trying to stalk next. She then turned to three Magni (Kirie, Melody, and Li) sitting next to each other in a conversation and Luciana suddenly popped up in front of a man wearing a red kimono with a yellow dragon and the yin and yang circle. She for some reason grew interest on him and stared at him with the smile that was plastered on her mask. Aberdeen knew that what was on Lucy’s mind was to put him to sleep and delve into his nightmares, so she hurriedly rushed over to them. Masking her utter embarrassment, Aberdeen tried to maintain a serious face and spoke in a monotone voice, “My apologies. Lucy seems to fancy you. She desires to stalk you and haunt you in your dreams, but no worries, I will take care of her.” Aberdeen then ended her short talk with one of her wide creepy smiles and breathed a small “hehe.”

Li was looking with a great interest at the next arena match which was going to be announced shortly. He really wanted to see of what we're capable those two persons, when something appeared in front of him.At first he looked at the demon being a little scared. It was a strange being and even Hwang could not believe that there was a demon with that kind of
sinister appearance. Immediately a girl, which was the Magni of that demon apologized for what happened and offered Li and Hwang information about its abilities.
It was better than Li could expect, something strange like that offered them a valuable piece of information."Don't you worry, it isn't a problem. My name is Li Wen and my demon's name is Hwang, but I call him Master Hwang all the times. Anyway would you like to take a seat near us?"Li asked with an convincing smile. Normaly Li would have told Hwang to use one of his abilities on that
demon, only on the demon as he thought that the girl was too cute and with a nice behavior since she apologized for what her demon wanted to do, but this time he didn't tell it to do such a thing as they were in a spying mission,
not a fight, and someone could have been suspicious about them.Observing the girl, she looked to be the type of person from which he could find or sometimes extract intel from it easily.
Li continued to watch the fight with a greater interest when a demon appeared. A great red demon which was connected with Mrs Brumfield he was very scary but an interesting demon. Li was looking at him with full attention when Hwang asked him"What is the matter? You are shocked?"Li responded "Of course I am."Hwang then tells him"If you are shocked only by his appearance and not by his abilities, then this is a wrong thing."
Li realized what he was telling, their mission was to discover the abilities of every Magni and demon, and to not become suspicious for the others.As the boy was walking toward Mrs Brumfield and her demon his body started to be covered with metal, metal armor. Li decided to show this just for his own purposes. The metal armor started disappearing at some time after it was created. If someone could believe that he was only a defensive type he could use a surprise attack because of their lack of knowledge
about his powers.But the demon returned back to its realm as Mrs Brumfield showed some powers with electricity making Amon to retreat. It was a disappointment for him.

Venice R. Mikaelo


Venice sat in the stands close to no one besides his own demon, as most of his peers engaged in talk with each other. Some were making commentary on the ongoing battles while others appeared to be doing the smart thing by analysing their upcoming opponents. Venice did neither. Although he had opinions on the duels himself, he kept those thoughts to himself aware that analysing people was far from being his forte. His demon Jenkins on the other hand was having a glorious time with his mouth at times, left hanging open as his little fists were clenched and waving around everywhere in encouragement. Venice continuing to be unmoved at the current events, pulled out his earlier pocket-sized book to continue reading until the time came whereas he'd be the one being watched instead which he really wasn't looking forward to. As outrageous as his clothes were, he didn't like drawing attention to himself that served as quite a contradiction.

"Venice, Venice, you're missing out!"

Jenkins exclaimed from the edge of his seat. Venice flicked over a page and looked up from his book for a split second to see what all the commotion was about before returning to his book. He had just managed to spot what appeared to be the teacher Mrs Brumfield's demon interacting with the students and despite it being a quick look, the image was fresh in his mind. It was black and red, a very darkly-looking creature as if straight out of the depths of hell. He did not envy those who had the pleasure of getting acquainted with it. While he did like demons overall, he wasn't sure if that type of demon would be much fond of him.The sound of a girl (Melody) screaming is what had originally attracted his attention. She had blonde hair and blue eyes, seen tightly clutching onto a boy's (Kieran) arm after being so startled. Venice continued to observe as she turned away from the boy she had grabbed in a cute manner. Not wanting to appear nosey, he turned away. Venice being as stoic as ever, did not give off an expression though that could count as a reaction anyways. Jenkins must be excited.. he said that in statement form, not as a question as per usual. Venice concluded as he moved onto the next page.

"Venice? Are you listening, sir?"

Jenkins asked Venice formally, but with a tone of impatience. While Venice naturally preferred to continue getting lost in his book that had reached a particularly fascinating theory, he was also obliged to grace his demon's question with an answer at the very least.

"Yes, that I am."

Venice responded briefly, flicking over another page and sparing another glance only directed around the arena this time as if admiring the architecture. He had been here on a number of occasions, and he always sat at the same spot with nobody but his demon for company. Venice spotted a familiar face being the girl he sat next to from earlier (Aberdeen) engaged in conversation with a fellow (Li) he had never seen before, or if he had, failed to recognise. Hmm, makes me realise I don't really know anyone's name except the teacher's. Returning his sights to the pages of his book, he continued conversing with his only companion.

"If I recall the rules correctly, when my duel takes place.. you are to stand down."

Jenkins sighed exaggeratedly.

"I understand, sir. But if I may say so, I believe you to be quite poor in combat and I worry for your health."

Jenkins expressed his concerns as his face grew serious, almost matching stoic Venice's own expression.

"There's hardly any combat involved from the likes of what I have managed to overhear... mostly bickering and threats- of which don't apply effects on me."

Venice said matter-of-factly, displaying that he did use his ears to listen in even without watching the duels with his own eyes. Jenkins only chuckled childishly in reaction.

"You never cease to amaze me, sir."

Venice looked up from his book with a kind-hearted smile for a change.

"Ah well, I could say the same for you."

Venice replied, ruffling the demon boy's hair like a fatherly figure.

"Just today, you started talking to me with statements and not just questions. Consider me amazed."

Connor watched the fights with growing nervousness. He was glad he was able to get out of fighting in front of everyone. Further, he wouldn't have to use his magic. The best part was that Connor wouldn't have to fight Melody, whom his brother was showing increasing interest in. However, as his brother's fight drug on, Connor became increasingly bored. His brother wasn't the type to initiate a fight, and his opponent only fought defensively. It wasn't very fun to say the least. Connor was sure his brother would be more than capable of beating on the kid, however, that wasn't his way of doing things. "Finish up already!" He called out to his brother. "You don't need to stretch this out any longer." Connor mumbled to himself. Hans nodded solemnly in agreement, perched upon his master's head. "I agree. Young master Kieran isn't a fighter. Your miscreant of a brother could be so much better than he is, he simply chooses to fool around." Hans sighed. Kieran, apparently voicing their concerns, withdrew. He wasn't the type to push for a fight to begin with, so the fight was more than over. Then, suddenly, he was there, sitting between him and Melody. Connor chuckled. "Nice." He whispered under his breath.

While the two were talking, Connor's head snapped up. He felt something. Sniffing the air, Connor looked over at Jaxon, whom he noticed was doing something strange. Then, suddenly, Connor felt a surge of power followed by the sight of a rock hurtling toward the back of his brother's head. Standing straight up and growling, Connor reached out with his right hand, water streaming out from the cuff of his sleeve. It formed a sleeve directly in front of the rock. Connor's plan was to use the water to catch the rock and then beat the tar out of Jaxon. "Oi! What the hell do you think you're doing!" Connor yelled. "The fight is over! You don't just attack an unwilling participant!" Connor was furious, but not as much as his teacher was. Mrs. Brumfield literally crackled with anger and summoned her demon. Connor was shocked, and more than a little terrified of the creature. It looked like something out of one of his nightmares. The creature snapped out it's tail, obliterating the rock in an instant, extracting a sigh of relief from Connor. Once he was sure the danger had passed, and everyone wasn't paying attention to him, he allowed the water to dissipate into nothingness. The water was formed from Connor's own energy, so once he had no need for it, he simply let it fade away.

Connor sat back down, undoing his uniform tie and allowing himself to relax. He usually didn't get so angry, but picking on Kieran was the last thing Connor would ever allow to happen. He sighed. "Feeling calmer, Connor?" Hans asked. "Yeah. I hate getting so riled up. I don't like fighting." Connor whispered to his demon. "It could have been worse. You could have flipped." Hans whispered back, hinting at Connors own powers. "Yeah, thank heavens there." Connor sighed.

Ditching his brother and the still cowering Melody, Connor walked over to Mrs. Brumfield. "Hiya Teach. I figured I'd sign up for the demonstration you want us to give you. I'd preferably like to do so alone. I don't like using my magic at all much less in front of lots of people." Connor said, making a point of ignoring Li, who seemed very interested in everyone's powers.

At first, the boy clad in his red kimono seemed to be a bit scared by Luciana’s sudden appearance, but afterwards he collected himself and assured Aberdeen that it wasn’t a problem. In fact, he even introduced himself as Li Wen and offered the name of his demon that he calls Master Hwang. What made Aberdeen really suspicious of him was the fact that he was willing to offer a seat next to the group. Luciana’s true goal was not to scare off the other students but rather to force Aberdeen into interacting with them. She used a similar tactic earlier with the boy Aberdeen was sitting next to in class, but it was only now that Aberdeen caught onto what her clever demon was up to. Aberdeen could only stare awkwardly as she contemplated whether to ignore her uncomfortable feeling and sit with the group or trust her usual behavior and stay clear of revealing her personal information and take leave.

Once again, Aberdeen would not be making the decision. She turned around after hearing the light tapping of feet to find a girl with pink hair skipping towards her. It was Opal with her demon that had the appearance of a red fox. While Opal was speaking, Aberdeen already had the answers in her mind, but decided to keep silent, not wanting to reveal her contempt with her over Lila.

“I’m Opal, but I guess you may or may not already know that.”

”Yup…Lucy went stealth and confirmed it for me. Good job, Lucy!”

“I guess…I’ll be fighting you today.”

”No crud…I was in the back of the class and I could see our names on the board…”

”I think that’s pretty strange though. See, at most schools they would expel you for fighting on the grounds.”

”Really? Why expel us for practice?”

”I know because this one time my brother Jack was. It was funny. He had to stay in his room for a week. Of course, I was only four then, so maybe he just told me that.”

Opal then cocked her head and Aberdeen raised an eyebrow wondering what Opal was trying to do. Opal then confirmed that her memory was real and introduced herself (again) and her demon Ella who revealed herself from behind Opal chewing on a caramel. Aberdeen was starting to soften up to Opal and figured she wasn’t a threat at all, but a nice bubbly girl. ”No wonder Lila’s her friend.” Aberdeen thought. ”Maybe I shouldn’t be harsh on her. But what can I say? Maybe I can introduce her to one of my favorite songs ( Alice Human Sacrifice Note: singing starts at around :28 but the introduction helps understand the song)!” Aberdeen thought. ”That could be an icebreaker right?”

Aberdeen finally relaxed her straight serious façade that she was keeping and opened her mouth to speak but instead of her own voice talking about her favorite song, she heard the cry of a student behind her(Melody). Aberdeen was getting annoyed at the fact that this was the third time today that she didn’t get to speak and was about to just shout out what she was going to say to Opal when she turned around to see a massive black and red towering above the orange haired boy with fiery eyes.”Never mind! You can go and talk...I’ll just stay quiet again…Nice demon…” Aberdeen thought to herself, as she looked with eyes wide open at the enormous demon. After the demon left to his realm, Aberdeen let out a sigh of relief and finally replied to Opal, although instead of her intended introduction to her favorite song, she instead let out what was really on her mind.

“So, you friends with Lila over there?” Aberdeen said while pointing to the match between Lila and Alexis. She froze, gritted her teeth, and clenched her fists thinking, “So I finally get to speak and I say that!?! What will she say?!?”

It seemed that Opal did not feel any contempt with the question Aberdeen asked her. Rather, she immediately rambled on about how great a friend Lila was and how she was her roommate. Then she talked about the fight and asked Aberdeen what she did. Apparently, Lila’s ability is to “…make things float but not really move anywhere…” and Ella’s ability is to make her happy or sad. Aberdeen could kind of guess that Opal’s power had something to do with using some kind of force to move the objects but she couldn’t understand what Opal meant by Ella making her happy or sad. Opal had asked her about her power as well, but Aberdeen was wary of giving this kind of information before the fight.

“You’ll see very soon, if the others hurry up,” Aberdeen remarked in a serious and slightly agitated tone.

Luciana then popped in front of Opal with her usual creepy mask smile panting heavily as though she had found her lunch for the day. It seemed Luciana got bored with Li and decided to focus again on Opal now that Aberdeen had started a conversation with the pink headed girl.

“This is Luciana. She seems to have taken a liking to you. If you see her in your nightmares do play along, I’m sure she’ll enjoy eliciting a shriek from you,” Aberdeen said with a small dark grin plastered on her face. Suddenly, Luciana stared at Opal’s moving book bag closely while continuing her panting. Aberdeen had never seen Luciana stare at an object like that before and was about to ask Luciana what she was up to when suddenly, Luciana quickly shoves her hand…well extension of her shadowy body…into the book bag ruffling inside it until she grabs a few pieces of caramel. Apparently, Luciana wanted the caramel pieces that Ella was eating. Then Luciana decided to eat them and placed them inside her mouth, although her real mouth is not the mouth that is carved into her mask. Luciana’s “stomach” suddenly widened and separated into two, forming an opening that revealed the true mouth of Luciana. Her real mouth had many sharp teeth and a tongue that licked its “lips” once Luciana was done consuming her small treat. Aberdeen was used to this scene, but wondered how Opal was dealing with this sudden realization. Still, she had to scold Luciana for taking the candies without permission.

“Lucy, you know you’re supposed to ask people before you take their stuff!” Aberdeen disciplined with a strict look on her face. Luciana then bent her head down and whimpered, sad that her delicious meal was tainted by her master’s scolding.
“I’m sorry, Opal and Ella. Please forgive Lucy, I think she has taken a liking to your caramel candies.”

Afterwards, Aberdeen turned back to watch the fight between Lila and Alexis. Alexis had a shard of ice that she threw towards Lila. It zoomed quickly across the stage and all Aberdeen could think was “Lila watch out!!!” while looking worriedly at Alexis’ opponent. Aberdeen was so focused on watching that she almost didn’t feel Brooklyn’s presence behind her. If she had turned around, she would have seen Brooklyn smiling at her younger sister who seems to be having much progress. However, Brooklyn noticed something strange behind Opal. It didn’t seem that Opal noticed the little girl behind her who had dark black hair that flowed down to her waist and a plain white dress that covered her body up to her ankles. In fact, no one noticed the mysterious figure that was behind her. Brooklyn knew what it was and that Aberdeen would have been able to see the ghost that was hovering near Opal. What her purpose was, she did not know and wouldn’t find out at this time because the ghost had disappeared in a flash.





OOC: Ahh are you alright Possibility? I hope you get better. Also, the ghost is supposed to hint at what we discussed, but I changed it a bit. ;)

Li is looking with a great interest at the arena anxious to see everything. It seems that it was Aberdeen’s match so she wouldn’t sit near him. A good chance to collect information was missed. Still Li was thinking if she didn’t realize what was happening. If she didn’t become suspicious about him. Still the two of them were having a conversation one that was a good thing for Li. Also that boy Connor didn’t want to go after hours with the others and with him. Maybe Connor tried to avoid him in order to not show him his powers.
Even words were used to collect information and they were telling Li what he was wanting. Then suddenly Li started to feel cold, it was like he was in a cube of ice. Shortly after the boy, even he was in the arena watching the matches, found himself in a Chinese restaurant in Honk Kong. He lived again what happened 4 days before he came to the academy. The restaurant during that time was a very quiet place as only he and another girl being there as the only customers.
The girl had a red hair, blue eyes, and was wearing typical Chinese clothes. A beautiful and well made Chinese pink kimono with a flower on its back. She was meeting with Li, but in fact this was just another simple assassination or so he believed that everything will be easy.
Hwang was with him sitting on his shoulder as the dragon always does, and another 10 members of the cult were hiding in the restaurant waiting for the opportunity to kill her. She was a Magni like Li too but she was against the cult and should have arrived with Li too at the academy, Hwang managed to get rid of her demon, now all they had to do was to kill her, in order to prevent her from meddling in the cult's business.
Li took a glass a wine drinking it slowly as he was looking at the girl."Mei Ling, do you know what happens with a lotus?"He looked at him strangely then responded to his question"No, what happens?"
That was the signal, as Hwang was using his fear ability on her, the girl's ice powers were neutralized, however she somehow managed to move even with the fear ability on her and started attacking Li, although she could not use her powers. She punched the boy several times in the face and the stomach but the other cult members came and stabbed her with a few swords in the chest."It dies."Li said while lifting from the ground, the other cult members took the girl's body into one of the cult's hiding. As Li was leaving the restaurant, he knew that Mei which was an obstacle for the cult, was no more alive. He finally got rid of her.Still the girl was supposed to come with him at the academy.He was asking what the teacher of his class would say about this.
This was, what the boy saw and lived his with eyes again, strangely while he was in the arena. After he came back to his senses he told to Hwang in Chinese "I saw Mei Ling, everything. The meeting and how we took her down."Hwang responded in Chinese"Strange very strange, that happened 4 days ago, still you lived that experience like it was happening today."After Hwang's response Li started to breathe very slowly and heavily. His heart started beating faster then usual, it seemed that after the recent experience he was suddenly having a panic attack."Mei Ling, she did something?"
Li asked Hwang before fainting and falling. Hwang kept his calm attitude while shouting"Mrs Brumfiled Li fainted. I think something is happening."Hwang started asking for himself what the heck did just happen, and if Li was going to be ok.

Ms.Brumfield

looking to Connor with a smile on her face she understood his reasonings. "sure Connor however you want to do it is fine by me just give it your best shot. now go sit back down alright" gently pushing him back towards his seat. Ms.Beumfield still wasnt in the best of moods, not after what Jaxon did and the way Amon acted towards his students.

sighing her attention was needed else where when Hwang yelled out for help. looking for the small dragon she glared at him finding him down in the arena area. "dammit Li what are you doing down there i told everyone specificly not to go down there but to atay in the stands-" running down the stairs and into the arena Ms.Brumfield now knew why Hqang called for help.

seeing one of her students on the ground unconcious made her worry as well as bring some unpleasant memories to come up. "oi what happened? tch he'll need to go to the nurse" looking around Ms.Brumfield realized she couldnt leave her students alone it wasnt allowed. "ah lets see what to do. . . " then spotting Connor and Melody an idea popped into her head. picking Li in her arms Ms.Brumfield laid him out on one of the seats. "Connor!Melody! come here for a moment" when and if they did come she would have asked the two to take Li to the nurses office and stay there for a little bit until coming back to the arena. once the group was to leave MsBrumfield let out a sigh glad she got it over with.

then she remember something else she hadnt done yet. Jaxon scowling she looked for the boy and saw him on top one of the pillars. cupping both hands around her mouth after getting as close as possible to him she called out to her student."Jaxon! get your butt down here! Now!" shaking her head once. if Jaxon was to follow hwr directions she would have had him go with Connor and Melody and have the two take him to the HeadMasters office and let Connor explain what happened. Ms.Brumfield would have asked the two to wait while Jaxon came down and so she could explain their new added instructions and once she told them she would send them on ther way.

glad she got that done with only one duel was left and she wondered how Lila would defend herself against Alexis's shard of ice. "but only one duel is going hmm whos next" she mumbled to herself. going back to where she originaly been standing Ms.Brumfield looked at the pairings and smiled. looking up the teacher searched for Giselle and found her talking with her demon. "Giselle its your turn to get up so start heading down to the arena so you can start your match. remember no demon is to help you if i find out your demon tried helping you even from the stands you will get detention." Ms.Brumfield liked giving certain students detention because unlike most teachers hers was rather strange.

But now to find Venice, and she found him. walking over towards her green haired student she smiled at his demon. "Venice its your turn to go up so start heading down to the arena your oppenent should be there waiting for you" gently pushing him towards the arena.

While watching the match at the arena, Aberdeen recalled her conversation with Opal. It seemed she was frightened a bit by Luciana, because upon seeing the demon, Opal jumped a little and tried to smile. Ella was so frightened by Luciana that she scurried to the top of Opal’s head. Although Aberdeen scolded Luciana for taking candy when she wasn’t supposed to, Opal didn’t seem to mind, which made Aberdeen relax. She was surprised that Opal didn’t seem to mind the creepy nature of Luciana or her lack of ability to talk much. “Maybe Opal isn’t that bad after all,” Aberdeen thought.

Luciana quickly recovered from her whimpering and thought about Ella who seemed to be frightened of her. Although Luciana couldn’t help but laugh at how terrified the little furball was, she wanted to make friends too. Luciana grabbed some more caramel candies and held them in her hand outstretched to Ella, offering to share them with her. Knowing that Ella would probably be hesitant, Lucy used her telepathy to speak, “Here Ella, I should share these with you since they’re yours. Can we be friends?”

Meanwhile, Aberdeen felt Brook’s presence and turned to her right. She noticed Brooklyn had a very serious face and decided ask what was up.

“What’s wrong Brook?” Aberdeen whispered trying not to look at her sister.
“Abby, whatever you do be careful. I saw another ghost behind Opal.”

“Really!?! What did it look like!?!” Aberdeen exclaimed. She perked up with the prospect that there was a ghost on school grounds. She enjoyed searching for ghosts and talking to them, even going to far as to go on ghost hunts to find them. Realizing that she just shouted, Aberdeen looked down and tried to pretend nothing happened.

“She was a little girl with long dark black hair and a plain white dress. I know you like ghosts, but I think you should watch this one with caution.” Brooklyn didn’t want to say it, because she wasn’t sure, but now that she thought about it, she remembered that before the mysterious figure disappeared, she wore a sickly grin on her face while looking straight at Brooklyn.

“Are you sure that’s how she looked?” Aberdeen asked in a whispering voice again. “Because I see a different girl, Brook.”

Aberdeen happened to glance where Li was sitting and saw another girl with red hair and blue eyes in Chinese garb that was similar to Li’s kimono except that it was pink and had a flower on its back. She seemed to look at Li with fire in her eyes, in fact literally. Her arms slowly crept over Li as though she were getting ready to grasp his neck and wrangle him, but before her hands can grip his neck, Li fainted and fell down to the arena area. Hwang then called Ms. Brumfield for help who picked Li up and laid him on one of the seats. Aberdeen quickly looked back to where the girl in Chinese garb was before. This time she was accompanied by a girl that fit Brook’s description: plain white dress and long black hair. They seemed to be grinning towards Aberdeen knowing that she can see them. Aberdeen turned to walk towards them but before she could reach them, they vanished.

“Wait! Who are you guys?” Aberdeen called out, but it was no use. She wondered what their agenda was and why they seemed to have a strong desire to hurt the students. Aberdeen contemplated whether she should inform Ms. Brumfield about this, but decided not to, thinking that maybe Ms. Brumfield would think she was crazy. Then she realized Opal and the other students might have noticed Aberdeen’s strange behavior and decided to shrug it off as if nothing happened, keeping a façade of aloofness.

“Just a jump-scare, nothing more.” Melody said with a weak smile. "But, I'm okay. Thanks." Just then the little siren, who had yet to introduce herself, started pushing Kieran's leg not stopping til he moved about three or four feet away. "Lore. Stop that. Be nice to him, okay?" Melody said to the little demon gently grabbing her in her hand and placing her on Melody's right shoulder. The siren responded by sticking her tongue out at Kieran and then curling up into Melody's shoulder.

As she stuck her tongue out at him Nox returned from giving the message to Connor and saw the little rascal pushing Kieran and sticking her tongue out and he let out a low threatening growl, to which Kieran gave him a light kick in the ribs, "Cut it out Nox, you're supposed to be the mature one who keeps me in line remember?" Kirean said with a light chuckle.

Melody seemed completely oblivious to Kirean's remarks towards Nox, she was lost thinking about something, and then she said "Sorry. She's a bit - Ah .... Protective." After this Melody seemed to have regained her composure "So, guess we're both up for after class lessons, eh? Just. Peachy ..." she said with a sigh, Kieran deep turquoise eye's met her bright blue ones, for just moment after which she quickly averted her eyes, and Kieran couldn't quite tell but he thought maybe he saw her blush slightly.

"Well if she's protective, I probably should back off a little, but I don't think I will." He said with a wink, that he hoped would not incite more disagreement from 'Lore'. "And it would seem you and my brother are stuck in after class lessons. But lucky me, I get detention, so while you guys are having fun learning one on one with the teacher, I get to write lines on the board or do whatever other bull shit she want's for an hour or two. It's gonna be a blast. Just you wait" He said with the worlds most ridiculous smile painting his face.

At that they heard Mrs. Brumfield holler over at them, a little tense, "Connor! Melody! Come here for a moment. I need you to take Li to the Nurse's office."

Kieran didn't miss a beat responding before either Melody or Connor could, "Mrs. Brumfield! We would be happy to take him to the nurse." He then looked over to Melody, "Anything to get out of here for a while, and as a bonus we get to get rid of that wierdo too." He said as he stood preparing to walk over to Mrs. Brumfield and Li.

Unconvincing cough.

No really, she totally wasn't staring, and quickly averted her eyes away from Kieran because she didn't want him to know she was checking him out. Maybe.

Tomaaaaatooo! Went a little braincell. Oh, she was... blushing. Slightly. Maybe. She thought she was, anyway.

Nonononononono! That won't do at all. You'd have to try more creativity to get Mel to blush, buster! No way that inevitably awkward, cute stare-down had her fainting in the most dramatic way possible.

Pat... pat... pat?

“Whaaaat...” The blonde whispered at her demon, noting that she was 'assisting' her in averting attention from Kieran.

“Lorelei wants to go play!” The siren sang in her Magni's ears, her bright blue eyes briefly glancing over to Kieran before darting back to her dear companion. “Pweaaaase?” She pleaded, pulling a rather obvious puppy-face.

“Not now, Lore. Class isn't over yet.” Melody retorted, again in a hushed tone, sighing at the realisation that class, indeed, had yet to end.

Fuck.

The pink, pinky-sized demon sighed ever so deeply...

“... I probably should back off a little, but I don't think I will.” Kieran butted in, winking at the blonde girl who- OMYGODOMYGOD! Lore! Don-

Too late. Too. Sodding. Late.

Before anything or anyone could react, Lorelei had gone about summoning a splash of water for the boy who so rudely stole away her attention time.

“Watch out!” The blonde girl jumped from her seat, dragging Kieran away from the area said splash would be, but managed to trip over thin air in the process – Thus, resulting in an epic heroic failure.

Well, not completely. Kieran was safe from Lorelei's attempt to teach him a lesson, though one could arguably state that having Melody 'on-top' was just as bad.

“Ouch... Stupid. Feet.” The girl muttered, only realising who had broken her fall after opening her eyes.

….. Great. Epic. Job. Mel! Just perfect.

“Dangit.”

A huff released itself from her mouth, eyes closing again as Melody stood up and tried her best to attempt to give zero fucks about that- that slip.

Don't say what I think you're gonna say.” That line was not only cliché as fuck, but too frigging obvious.

Shrugging off the awkwardness of the moment, her hand pulled at Kieran's. Helping him up before walking to the teacher and her little 'problem'.

Help the new guy? Yeaaaaaah, no.

Give it a positive side, though, it meant she didn't have to stick around for this class – Maybe even sneak out when the lot of them had dragged the poor sod to the nurse.

"Jaxon! get your butt down here! Now!"
Jaxon looked dully at Mrs. Brumfield and instantly warped in front of her. "You called ma'am? If it's about the duel whatever I'll go see the principal myself, no need to take these guys with me. Also I could bring that Li guy as well carrying him shouldn't be a problem." rolling his eyes he looked to the other students and yawned. 'Why is everyone so nonchalant about someone passing out?' "..." Shaking his head Jaxon looked to Mrs. Brumfield and sighed. "I'll head out with Li so don't worry about anything I'll take my leave now." Heading towards Li he began to pick him up. 'Uff! He's heavy...' struggling slightly he picked him up and headed back to Mrs. Brumfield. "Alrighty I'm headed out now, but speak now before I head out if you got something to say."

Looking to Connor with a smile on her face, Ms. Brumfield spoke. "Sure Connor however you want to do it is fine by me just give it your best shot. Now go sit back down alright?" Connor smiled as she pushed him off towards the seats. Ms. Brumfield might not actually be that bad. Sure she'd gotten a little upset at Jaxon and summon that crazy strong demon, but she had the student's best interests at heart. As he headed back towards his brother and, their seemingly new best friend, Melody, Nox approached him and spoke. "Connor, Kieran was too lazy to get off his ass and ask you himself or something, but he wants to know if you are alright, further he wants to thank you for your help with the rock that ass hole sent his way, causing this whole mess." Connor chuckled and looked to Hans, who was sitting on his shoulder. "No worries little brother." Hans replied to Nox. "It's what we're here for. Kieran knows he can always count on Connor. Period." Hans finished. However, as the group was about to walk back to their seats, Ms. Brumfield called Connor back.

"Connor! Melody! Come here for a moment." Connor sighed and turned back around, signalling to Nox that he should join Kieran. "Yes Ms. Brumfield?" Connor asked as he closed the distance to his teacher. "Take Li to the nurse's office with Melody and Jaxon and stay there with him for a little bit to make sure he's ok before leaving him for the nurse." Ms. Brumfield instructed Connor. "Then you are to take Jaxon to the Headmaster's Office and explain what has happened and why Jaxon is being sent there. Then you can come back. Clear?" Ms. Brumfield finally finished. Though the instructions were long, they were not complex, Connor nodded in approval. "Yes ma'am." Connor replied directly but respectfully. He walked over to where Li was, but Jaxon had already hefted him over his shoulders. "Need any help with him? Perhaps a partner chair carry? If not, let's be off, I'm getting tired of putzing around." Connor said, disdainfully, though if asked, Connor would have helped him carry Li, whatever made the situation easier. However, Connor still wasn't very happy with Jaxon. As soon as everyone was ready, they left for the nurse's office. Dropping off Li was the first priority.

As Melody averted her eyes from Kieran she seemed to whisper back and forth with Lore, the little demon. This is when Kieran declared he would not back off. "Watch out!" Melody screamed jumping at Kieran, saving him from the splash of water the little devil summoned to drop on him. "Apparently the little one thought my comment was out of line. But I guess Melody didn't think so." He thought as she hit him and the two of them fell out of the way of the splash landing on the ground.

After recovering from the crash Kirean realized he was not alone on the ground, Melody was, on top of him. He smiled at her, knowing that all of the funny comments flowing through his brain, that he was sure she would find hilarious, would only serve to anger Lore some more, and he didn't want that, he pushed the little one to far. "Don't say what I think you're going to say" she said to him as she reached her hand down to help him up.

Kieran took her hand and said "Well what exactly did you think I was gonna say? Some cliche crap? Come on, you know I'm better than that, if I said anything it would have been more like. 'Glad I make a good cushion, but I regret to inform you I am not one.' UGH! Even that was crap. Guess I'm not at my wittiest, when a pretty girl falls for me like that." "I hope to God, that doesn't upset Lore, I didn't even say anything.

The two of them walk over to Mrs. Brumfield, who was conversing with Jaxon and Connor, who were carrying Li already. "I'm getting tired of putzing around" They hear Connor say as they arrive. Mrs. Brumfield shoots Kieran a dirty look, "I do not recall asking you to escort them to the nurse's office Kieran?" she said to him, not expecting him to have a response, but he responded rather quickly "Ma'am, I thought I might go with, things are rather boring here and if Jaxon and Connor get tired carrying Li I can help." He said flexing his muscles. Mrs. Brumfield clearly didn't want to deal with Kieran shit right now simply nodded that it was alright. "Be sure to come right back after dropping them off!" She hollered mostly at Kieran as they left. "Sure thing Mrs. B!" Kieran replied, confirming that he had no intention of returning to class.

The four them walk out of the stadium and Kieran is first to speak up, "So Jaxon, the Nurse and Headmaster are on opposite ends of the school, it would be most efficient if we" he motions to himself and Melody, "take Li to the nurse. You two can go the headmaster and we'll meet back up with Connor at the stadium." Kieran hoped Jaxon bought it, as he did NOT want to spend any time with the kid, he did however want to spend time with Melody.

"Connor, I know Jaxon's a douche nozzle, but PLEASE go along with this plan. I really don't want to be around him right now, and I kind of want to spend some time with a pretty lady after dropping off the dead weight at the nurse." Kieran pleaded in his mind that his brother would back up his plan. He NEEDED this to work out.

“Well what exactly did you think I was gonna say? Some cliché crap? Come on, you know I'm better than that,”

Correction, I hardly know you at all. An hour tops.

“... if I said anything it would have been more like. 'Glad I make a good cushion, but I regret to inform you I am not one.' UGH!”

Hel-lo! First guy who doesn't use clichéd lines.

A smile managed to reveal itself. Mel had to admit, the guy had a way to make her chuckle – from the inside.

“... UGH! Even that was crap. Guess I'm not at my wittiest, when a pretty girl falls for me like that.”

Goodbye, first guy who doesn't use clichéd lines.

Her smile dissipated after that. Such a shame. She really thought he wouldn't be saying something like that, but he did. He actually did. Minus one point for that, she supposed.

“Gee, how o-rig-i-nal.” Came a sarcastic reply to Kieran's comment. Should have expected it. Should. Have. Expected. It. How she regretted saving him from a wet suit now.

“If I was falling for you, it would be from a twenty-storey apartment.” Her eyes turned back to the arena, feet taking motions to said direction before the blonde added: “With a bungee cord.”

During their short walk down the steps and into the arena, Lorelei once again popped back on her Magni's shoulder – Still wary of Kieran, and actually taking another turn at separating him from Melody. However, the blonde girl was quick enough to tell the wee-little demon off.

The two of them arrived at the 'scene', Melody noting that the teacher wasn't too glad with Kieran's arrival. Again. Really, who gives a damn?

Simply shrugging at the entire discussion, the girl waited for everyone else to get a move on and simply followed behind – Because, like Hell is she carrying that guy!

“So Jaxon, the Nurse and Headmaster are on opposite ends of the school, it would be most efficient if we” Kieran spoke up, gesturing at himself and Melody before continuing. “... take Li to the nurse. You two can go the headmaster and we'll meet back up with Connor at the stadium.”

-- I hope you aren't expecting anything, Jester guy.

Bah! Melody didn't mind who was going with who. As long as it meant spending less time in class, and even less time debating where to drop the body. And even less, less time with someone you shared an awkward moment with. “Don't care. Let's just go.” Melody retorted, one foot already firm in the direction of the nurse's office.

Aberdeen took a quick look around her to make sure no one suspected anything strange about her. It seemed that Connor and Jaxon were carrying Li to the nurse’s office and that Melody and Kieran were trailing right behind them. Opal seemed to be watching intently at the matches and Ella and Lucy were having their own conversation, so it seems like no one noticed. “Thank goodness,” Aberdeen thought. She didn’t want to look suspicious in front of her classmates. For now, she decided to keep the situation with the ghosts a secret and pay attention to the matches.

Looking over at Lila’s match, Aberdeen made a sigh of relief that Lila had escape the sharp ice shard’s path, but she turned her head sideways after Lila tripped over her feet and landed on her buttocks. Lila’s eyes seemed to be wide open in shock and she called out to her opponent, “Hey, careful with that you could have actually killed me yah know!” with fluffy cheeks. Even though she just stated that her opponent could have potentially ended her life, Lila’s face depicted a smile. “What a nice smile she has,” Aberdeen thought. She wished she could smile a lot more like her rather than maintain such a serious or cold complexion, but she felt uncomfortable letting herself go like that. Lila then stood up from the ground, shrugged off some dirt that was on her skirt, and then stepped back with her arm pulled out as though she was getting ready to pitch at the next batter. “Batter up!” Aberdeen thought in her head. She knew she could be more lax, sarcastic, and open, but she chose not to, instead maintaining a serious face as she intently watched Lila’s next move. With a bright smile, Lila launched a ball of light towards Alexis and following up with larger balls of light.

Although she wanted to see the outcome, Aberdeen hated light so she turned to look at the next group of people that were going to match. It seemed that it was Venice’s and Giselle’s match. She overheard a couple of names that Ms. Brumfield mentioned, but never turned to see how the opponents looked. A girl with medium bright flame red hair stepped into the arena accompanied by a red fox which leaped forward in front of her. “Aren’t the demons supposed to be sitting down not participating?” Aberdeen thought. Afterwards, a familiar green haired young man stepped into the arena adjusting his sleeves. After he introduced himself as “Venice Roko Mikaelo,” he tipped his hat, bowed, tossed his hat over to the side, and fixed his jacket. “Ah, so that’s his name,” Aberdeen thought, remembering him as the guy that she tried to have her first conversation with. Thinking about what had transpired earlier, Aberdeen struggled to keep herself visible, clenching her fists together. “I can’t believe I made a fool of myself in front of this gentleman! Ugghh I hope he doesn’t see me.” After realizing that she was clenching her fists for too long, she looked back down at her hands and noticed she couldn’t see herself anymore. “Not this again…” Aberdeen grumbled, struggling to become visible again.

Meanwhile, Lucy was enjoying the opportunity of talking to Ella. Although Ella growled and hesitated at first, she quickly snatched up the offered treats and crawled back down in the bag. After chewing on most of the candy that was stuffed inside the bag, Ella responded, “Thank you for the candy, even though it was already mine to eat to start with. I guess we can be friends, though you are a little creepy. I’ll think of it like an adventure!”

“None taken. It’s an honest response to my appearance. Heh, speaking of adventures, would you like to know how I got my latest mask? It’s a riveting story, though for me not and the poor soul who had to lose his mask.” Luciana then thought for a moment to the events of the past looking upwards. “Actually, I think I may have taken his face too. I’m sure I had Aberdeen pack it for my pillowcase, at least she better have.”

After looking at Kieran and Melody for a second he smiled to himself and put down Li. "Alright I'll head to the Headmaster's office with Connor you two take Li here to the nurse. That said I'll head off then." After saying this Jaxon stuffed his hands in his pockets and turned up his music to help clear his head. 'Well it seems that the first day of school I'm headed to the principal's office... lovely.' laughing silently to himself he whispered to himself, "Whatever happens don't forget that you're still human, and humans are fragile creatures..." Shaking his head from his dark mood he looked back and beckoned Connor. "Hey slowpoke hurry up, time may be a luxury for some but for me it just means that it's time wasted that could've been put to use somewhere else."

After a quick jolt, Jaxon stood up straight from his hunch and felt his neck warm. "Oh hey Tama, did you sleep well bud?" Tama purring happily, "Of course I did beds are a lot better than floors you know." chuckling to himself he trudged on towards the Headmaster's office with a smile. "Sorry for making you use so much magic, my experiment didn't even work." After hearing this Tama pawed at Jaxon's face. "Idiot you're human and so are they, so at least show some respect alright?" Coughing slightly Jaxon looked back to see if anyone heard their conversation.

After Li fainted Hwang was thinking what could be the reason for this mysterious thing. Analizating everything and taking into consideration their last kill he managed to find something. It seemed, or it was just a possibility created in Hwang's mind through a lot of thinking and effort that maybe Mei Ling was responsible for that. Her ice magic could have activated an ability which would make her opponent vulnerable in a hunt or a long time fight, but this only delayed their mission, anyway Hwang's first priority was and will always be Li, knowing that he was also Li's first priority because of their long time friendship. Mrs Brumfield called a few students to carry Li to the nurse's office, Hwang remained quiet all this time, he was going to speak only when necessary at a time like this. At first she assigned only Connor and Melody but after a discussion 4 persons were going, Kieran, Connor, Melody and Jaxon only two of them carrying him.
If Hwang would have observed something strange, he would have told them without a sign of fear"Don't carry him like a garbage. If you do , then I will show you something special."Still this wasn't The case as something like this didn't happen. " Boy please call the Headmaster to the nurse's office Urgently, I got something important to tell him."Hwang told to Connor since he was going to follow the others, to the nurse's office, but he or Li had to report Mei Ling's disparition, if not they could be suspicious, since Mei Ling and her demon were supposed to arrive with them at the academy. Li was still unconscious, meanwhile his hands were starting to be covered slowly by ice and soon his whole body Hwang realized everything.
The ability at first is turning the person into an unconscious state, then the Ice magic in his body will make him unable to move, so she could find and kill him easily. Too bad for her That the ability activated days after her death. "Let's hurry to the nurse's office."Hwang reminds them Again where they should go keeping his calm through hoping that as soon as Li arrived, the nurses
Would do something about the ice which was covering slowly but surely his body. Meanwhile Hwang was telling in his mind"Mei Ling your special ability is worthless now,since you are dead but nice try honorable warrior."the others could see that he was smilling,the reason being that Li was fine and that her ability didn't activated when and if she would have lived.

Melody smiled as Kieran stated he wouldn't be cliche, but as soon as he made a joke, that was quite cliche, her smile disappeared instantly. "GEE, how o - rig - i - nal." She retorted quite sarcastically. "If I was falling for, you it would be form a twenty story apartment." She stated taking a few steps away from him before adding "With a bungee cord."

During their walk down the steps the little siren showed up again, but Melody seemed to keep her from bothering Kieran too much.
Kieran and Melody arrived with the others and picked up Li. The group proceeded back towards the school, with Connor and Jaxon carrying Li, Melody and Kieran actually looked quite useless in this situation. Kieran recommended they split up so as to get the job done quicker, Jaxon seemed to agree, walking towards the Headmaster's office, turning and calling Connor a slowpoke for not following. " Connor, just go with him, I'll tell you all about it tonight. " Kieran thought to his brother.
Melody however seemed not to have an opinion who she went with, “Don't care. Let's just go.” was her response as she started walking towards the nurse's office. Well looks like I'm carrying him, myself Kieran thought and then he remembered Nox was walking along side him.

"Hey buddy ya wanna help me carry this kid, he's not light." Kieran said to his demon, who reluctantly agreed "ALL RIGHT! I suppose I can help." Nox shifted his body so that Kieran could lay Li on top of him, now all Kieran had to do was keep the kid from falling off of Nox. "Ya know, having a demon as large as you really comes in handy sometimes." Kieran said to the hound, who just laughed in response. Melody was walking a few steps ahead of them, and Kieran had no way to speed up to catch her, for fear of Li falling. They make their way to the nurse's office and drop off Li, without any real conversation.

Kieran looks over at Melody as they leave the nurse's office, "I'm uh, sorry about being an idiot earlier. When you fell on me, all I could think was, 'MUST SAY SOMETHING FUNNY' and then that crap was all that came out." Kieran said sincerely hoping she didn't think he was a complete fool. "OH and uh, thanks for saving me from that splash of water, I though Nox here was mischievous, but your little Lorelei is almost as bad." Kieran said, intending it as a compliment. "So what do ya say, we forget all that bull crap and just wander around campus til class is over?" Kieran waited patiently for a response with a simple smile adorning his face.

"Tch..." Connor scoffed as his brother gave him THAT look. The look that said, "Please get my back just this once? I'll never ask you for anything again, I promise!" The one he gave Connor almost weekly. Connor sighed. "Yeah, alright, let's get you to the headmaster's office." Connor said, turning to face Shugo. They walked for a moment before Connor stopped and turned around, calling to his brother. "Oi, Bro!" Connor called to Kieran, though he knew his brother wouldn't turn to face him. "When we're all done here, you're going to have to do THAT thing!" Connor called after him, smirking evilly. Both brothers knew exactly to what Connor was referring. It was a punishment game, and Kieran was going to have to eat something completely horrendous. When Connor and Kieran were younger, their mother attempted to make lutefisk. Of course the boys' father, who asked for it and grew up eating it, loved the stuff and said it was better than what their grandma ate. Connor and Kieran on the other hand puked after smelling it. Now the two of them only write home asking their mother to bring it on special occasions, like when one has done something horrible. When that happens, the offender has to eat it while the other watches. You'd think the boys would eventually learn to like it, but not so. It's still used for punishment to this day. Connor chuckled evilly to himself as he stood, watching his brother stumble. "You scare me sometimes Master." Connor heard Hans say over his chuckling. "Oh?" Connor said, and ceased laughing. "What was that Hans? I didn't hear what you said." Connor asked, giving Hans a death glare. "Stop that now Master Connor, remember what your mother said about picking on me!" Hans exclaimed, becoming rather scared. "Alright," Connor said, and he stopped making faces at the little fox. "Let's go get this over with." Connor sighed.

"Hey slowpoke hurry up, time may be a luxury for some but for me it just means that it's time wasted that could've been put to use somewhere else." Connor heard Jaxon say, and he sighed, turning back around to face his unwanted guest to the headmaster's office. "Yeah, and who's fault you think this is in the first place," Connor mumbled to himself, just loud enough for Hans, who was perched on Connor's shoulder, to hear. Usually, Connor liked giving that place a WIDE berth. Not that he was afraid of the headmaster himself, no, it was his Secretary. She was the one in charge of punishment at school here, and Connor knew if she even SMELLED him, he'd be in for a world of trouble. "Yeah, yeah, I'm coming." Connor said, walking over to where Jaxon was and continuing towards the headmaster's office. He said nothing for fear of losing his temper with Jaxon. Though he didn't look it, Connor was NOT pleased with Jaxon. Connor usually wasn't pleased with anyone who picked on his brother, for any reason. Kieran was really torn up about getting picked on in the past. It wouldn't do to have him repeating those kinds of experiences here in school now. Now that they'd left that life so far behind. Connor walked in silence until they were about ten feet from the Headmaster's office. It had taken them a few minutes to traverse the odd, numerous hallways, but they'd made it. With that buffer distance between himself and the large, decorated double doors and the plaque on the wall that simply read, "Headmaster" next to the doors, Connor stopped. "Here's the office. Brace yourself, the Headmaster's aura is... stifling at best. He's got more magic than he knows what to do with." Connor said, taking another brave step forward. Instantly, Connor felt a bead of sweat form on his forehead like it always did when he was sent here. "Well, come on." Connor said, "No backing down now." Connor made his way to the doors and pushed them open, leading Jaxon inside. He walked over to the Secretary, who looked him up and down as if to say, "What have you done this time?"

"It's not me ma'am." Connor explained. "This one," Connor said, pointing at Jaxon over his shoulder with his thumb, "disobeyed the rules of engagement in a duel between students, supervised by Ms. Brumfield and attacked a student when their duel had been decided. I'm just here to bring him to the headmaster. If you're done with me, I'd like to go." Connor said to the Secretary, who was shocked to find that Connor the Troublemaker wasn't the one who was being sent to the office. "Very well," the older woman croaked. "Why don't you head back to class Mr. Flannagan, and tell that miscreant brother of yours to watch his step." The Secretary said, pointing a gnarled finger at Connor and poking him in the chest with her boney appendage. "Yes ma'am." Connor said, the Picture of innocence, though Hans was curled up on his master's shoulder trying not to tremble and make his master appear weak. However, the headmaster's presence was particularly strong on little demons like Hans. Even Connor was beginning to feel the pressure, though he'd never show it. He exited swiftly and calmly, as if he could have stood in that monstrous aura until the day he died. However, once they were outside and behind a closed door, Connor crouched down and pulled Hans off his shoulders. "Hans, you ok?" Connor asked the now trembling fox, who was trembling. "You idiot." Connor scolded. You were acting tough in front of Tama and Jaxon weren't you. Hopefully we won't ever have to go in there again, but that was foolish, don't do it again." Connor warned his little demon. "Yes Master Connor," Hans panted. "Let's go back to the stadium now, shall we?" Connor asked. The other students' auras aren't as oppressive as THAT guy's. Connor sighed, shaking his head as he and Hans headed back towards the stadium, sitting down by a girl with long black hair and blue eyes once they got back. Though her little white cat of a demon eyed them, Connor just smiled and remained silent. Connor and Hans said nothing, they didn't talk to anyone, and they didn't enter in an outrageous or silly way. Connor was in the midst of a transformation. Though he'd never tell his brother, Connor wanted to be strong, stronger than the headmaster. He was planning on taking school... seriously. Connor leaned back, allowing Hans to climb up on Connor's belly to rest. The little one had had it rough. Connor absentmindedly scratched him behind the ears, causing Hans's leg to thump ever so slightly, it only happened twice, and Connor stopped scratching as soon as it happened. He knew his little demon didn't like to be treated like a pet... except for when it came to helping eat leftovers. Suddenly, without any warning, Connor spoke. "Hiya," He stated simply, a smile on his face. "I'm Connor, any reason you're sitting all by your lonesome?" Connor asked, turning to face her and smiling once more. No reason to not be friendly when you were meeting someone new.

The walk to the nurse's office was uneventful. Thankfully. Kieran seemed very occupied with carrying that unconscious guy, bless that. It meant Melody wouldn't have to deal with potential awkwardness for the time being, though if that were the case – Why did she go with him in the first place?

With a sigh, the blonde pushed the door the the nurse's office for Kieran and his pet demon – And whatever the hell that dragon was – to drag their dead-weight inside and leave him for the nurse to fix up.

Okay. Great! Time to leave everyone behind, and start erasing some memories with loud music-

“I'm uh, sorry about being an idiot earlier.”

Oh? He's apologizing now, is he? Melody, despite not shifting from her bored expression, tried her best to look attentive. After all, she wasn't used to be given an apology. If only people would do that more often. Along with compliments, she liked compliments – And cake. Cakes, apologies and compliments. Here was to hoping Kieran would do all three of them.

“OH and uh, thanks for saving me from that splash of water. I thought Nox here was mischievous, but your little Lorelei is almost as bad.”

“Eh, yeah... Sorry about that.” She retorted, stammering slightly as she tried her hardest not to feel like a tomato. Again. “She's just a bit overprotective ever since- Well, she just is.”

Something to off-awkward this? Please?

Lorelei yawned, stretching her arms as she gave her Magni a little smooch.

Thank you!

“Hey, Lore. Slept well?” The blonde asked, receiving a hasty nod in response before witnessing another one-sided stare down between Lorelei and Kieran.

The girl sighed. It can't be helped, huh? As long as she doesn't plan on doing anything drastic. Yet.

“So what do ya say, we forget all that bull crap and just wander around campus till class is over?”

Kieran butted in, smiling as he waited for Melody to either go Yay or Nay.

“You read my mind. No funny business, though. Because I'm not saving you a second time.” The blonde smirked, nudging the taller boy with her shoulder as her hands folded into the pockets of her vest. Flashing a wink before walking past and go anywhere but class.

Li was dropped to the nurses office,alongside with Hwang,his loyal companion which was going to stay there until the boy would wake up.He could not believe that something like this happened even now,just right now,Hwang was thinking what will happen if and when the headmaster will find out.Now he surely had to answer the nurses questions,so he would lie if they were going to ask him something touchy.One of the nurses approached Hwang asking hi about the situation.He responded"He suddenly fainted."Not giving too many details,the other nurse looked at Li.Checking his state,she realized that he was immobilised somehow by the ice on his hands,the sleep and maybe something else.Looking at him closely she told to his dragon that it was possible,for the boy to not wake until the next morning.Hwang could not believe what he heard, until the next morning, maybe that ability was more powerful than he could expect. In the meantime Li was lying on the bed, still unconscious into a great sleep."What is this? I feel cold?"The boy asked himself looking at the white void which was surrounding him.

A white and cold desert which was spreading the fear of loneliness over him, step by step not seeing anyone, or not hearing anything. Screaming, it returned back like an echo, he was feeling so lonely still this state quickly disappeared seeing the man which he admired the most. Li Yang, but it was just an illusion as the great Chinese legend, was just standing there like http://uppix.net/8/f/b/b80b6a0dc387ef475c8b9b50ab3d4.jpg Li wasn't
near him, like Li wasn't looking for him, with full admiration about such a great person. Still this wasn't going to remain a nice and great dream, since the ability would transform it into a nightmare."Great Master Yang."Hearing Li the legend turned toward him, slapping him."A weakling like you doesn't deserves to call me master."He was punched in the mouth, a very powerful punch."I could kill you but I like to see the weaklings dying by the hands of other weaklings. You don't need to show me your pathetic abilities. They are an insult to my talent, and mastery of water."And with that the dream ended, the boy would have worked but the ability was restraining him, so he was going to probably suffer more because of those nightmares.

One of the nurses left, going to Miss Brumfield to tell her about what happened. What happened, wasn't a usual thing, and it did not have any connection with a sickness, it was something related to magic. Hwang was thinking after the nurse left, that maybe she realized what happened with him and they would be screwed in any second from now. After a few minutes the nurse came to Miss Brumfield which was still in the arena telling her"Miss Brumfield. The boy, fainted because of magic. It's surely magic. And
Strangely, his hands are covered in ice. Maybe you should do something about him"She told her, then left the arena back to the nurse's office.The oyal dragon was still there,deciding that he will remain with Li until he will wake up.No matter,the mission or the punishment he could suffer,he was determined to remain with Li.

GM Post


It’s been about a week and a half since the students started school at Liuena Academy. Ms.Brumfield has informed her class of a field trip to the Human City outside the barrier. It’ll be the first time going to the human city since starting their new life at Liuena Academy. It’s a Sunday afternoon and a hour after walking about the city in groups four or five (two groups)

One lead by Ms. Brumfield and the other lead by Kirie Askumoto.
Ms.Brumfields Group:
Opal, Aberdeen, Kieran, Lila
Kirie's Group:
Melody, Connor, Jaxon, Jayson

No switching is permitted what’s so ever. the reason Kirie is group leader is simple, he is one of the few students in Ms. Brumfields class that actually follows her directions as has been a honored student since he started coming to the Academy(his grandmother knows the headmaster) also because she trusts Kiries ability to take care of himself and those around him. All demons are to be kept under strict surveillance. Nor is anyone allowed to use their abilities in the slightest way even if it’s to protect themselves from a human attack. There are exceptions i.e. possible deaths but other than that stay out of trouble. Both groups are allowed to go their separate ways but must stay within the portal to the Academy.

Like before an hour after walking around the City, Seagus begins his attack on the city and the only people with the chance of stopping him are the Magni who are in the city on a field trip to learn how to integrate with regular people without relying on their abilities to help them. the Academy won’t be able to enter the city for another hour after the attacks start due to the magic in the city is being drained by Seagus but not only that but the barrier that hides the Academy is getting weaker and weaker. If the Academy isn’t careful they could possible create a hole in the barrier allowing the city to see them. And for the creature to enter the Academy grounds. While all this is happening Li is stuck at the academy under the pretense of being sick with stomach aches and such. He is searching for whatever he can find to pit against the Academy which is the creature in the basement that was sealed by the previous Headmaster a few decades ago.

During this time a group of sewer workers entered the sewer system. But they are not the only ones below in the tunnels. The workers in the sewers were aghast. A giant black crystal-like material was the cause of the blockage the mayor was so worried about? "C'mon, boys get your picks!" The three workers started picking away at the crystal when they're pickaxes broke. The crystal hadn't even been scratched. Then a noise emanated from the crystal. It was like the roar of a lion, but three octaves lower than what it should be. The workers then saw a red eye looking at them. Three tendrils of darkness soon skewered them and tossed them aside as the thing made its way outside. The last surviving worker contacted police and national guard. There was a monster in the city. As it rampaged Maledict searched for sources of magical and non-magical energy to feed off from, to restore its low energy levels. And nothing was going to get in it's way in keeping itself from harm.

"Finally they have left Master Hwang." Li told Hwang, while they were walking in the academy. Days have passed since he fainted because of Mei Ling's ability and woke up the next morning; a good trick but a late one. He made up an excuse in order to not go with the others on a project. It was a necessary excuse, since they were going in the city; it was the moment he hoped for. Days spent in the library only with his nose in a book and with the help of the dragon, they read books about magic, legends and supposed rumors. Shocked, the boy found out about a great being with a magic talent for copying things. Asking Hwang a day ago, the old dragon told him about the fight between a few members of the cult Jing and against that thing. Only Jing survived, decades ago, but he never had the chance to defeat it again. Considering this the greatest shame of his life and a personal failure even now at the age of 82; thinking that he still wasn’t powerful enough to fight that thing.
"Master Hwang but there is something more about Jing, no?” The dragon responded "Yes, during that fight, the leader died because of Jing, and he still became the current cult leader.” Li now knew a little more about Jing, still, again without his Yin Dragon, he wouldn't have known anything. While walking in the academy, he noticed that almost everyone had left; still Hwang asked the boy if he regretted, just of sheer curiosity, what he did 2 weeks ago to a Magni from India and its demon. Li responded that he insulted that boy 5 times, he insulted the boy, his demon, his power, his way of life, and his incapability to survive in what he called a cruel world, and he even killed him in a Sikh temple he didn’t feel bad about what he did.

"Without you Master Hwang, I would have been transformed into dust, rubble, mud, and ice, carbonized and drowned, but your legendary abilities have saved me everytime." Hwang could not believe that he was praised so much about his abilities so suddenly , but still the boy was right. He was a key player in Li's battles, and his only main support. A dragon and a master of his only-two abilities, sure it was the best help, father-like, he considered him, friend and partner that someone could get. Their friendship was similar to that of Li Yang and Xin, but Yang was long time dead,but Zi was somewhere as no one knew about his current whereabouts.
"Master Hwang about that sword Master Jing gave me, what is he trying to do?" Li asked curious. Now that he remembered it, Hwang always knew more than he did, so he was going to answer to his question immediately. "That damn ceremonial sword traps the souls of those, which are killed by It, inside itself." Li hearing that realized that all 20 of those Magni that were killed, every time he had the sword with him and at Jing’s request, he killed them with the sword. Now the boy was aware of what he truly did but still wasn't sure of Jing's true scope behind that decision.
"He has the element of earth, I have a specialization of the earth, metal. Do you think that he wants to take my powers?" Li asked Master Hwang, "Yes there's no doubt he surely wants to kill you, he has 82 years old. He is a man of great pride and doesn't want to die like all the other cult leaders. Jing wants wants to be immortal, so i suggest to you, when you have the occasion,kill him." Hearing that from his dragon as always he did what the dragon suggested to him. Since he was one of the few beings who truly cared and wanted the best for the boy. "That old man,that has erased power he really needs to take a nap, I will make him meet with his ancestors; the previous cult leaders, I will kill him." Li said knowing what he had to do when he saw him. Laughing while walking toward the headmaster's office the secretary was inside; he silently approached her from the back and with one metal knife stabbed her in the chest, letting her to fall, on the floor. It was just like Li had temporally changed from one state to another, now he would do everything to assure that he was going to kill the Jing and become the next cult leader. Entering the headmaster office he threw a cup of tea on the floor, destroying it. He then took a small piece of a red diamond which had been part of the cup.

Leaving he went straight to the library, looking for a certain book. It took him half of an hour to sneak inside and after destroying a dozen books by himself he found another piece of diamond. Now he went to Miss Brumfield’s classroom for the next and final piece of the diamond. This time he was spotted by a fellow student and when he got the chance, he stabbed him in the back.
Hwang was sitting on Li's shoulder watching him astonished,the boy destroyed the entire class before he could find the third piece of the diamond the piece which made the key complete. He read in the library about a being in the basement and the key. But it took him days of intense studying and reading over old books to figure out this thing and where to find all the diamond pieces. Going to the front of the academy he put all the parts near one another, forming the key. Lifting the red diamond key in the air just in front of the sun, the earth below them revealed a secret black door to the basement. Opening ithe door with the key, the boy hurried toward the copy thing's cell ignoring all that mud, skeletons, dark atmosphere, rats, bugs, old walls and metal cells. He put the key in the door and let that monstrosity to come out. Telling it "I don't want to harm you; I am here to free you." Jing's initial goal and mission was to partially destroy the academy, then force it to become a part of the cult, taking advantage of it and to make it's headmaster his servant. But Li changed his mind, he was going to kill Jing or at least try as soon as he arrived, if that was ever going to happen.
The beast as soon as came out had already copied Li's appearance and powers, telling the boy that he would never kill the direct descendant of Li Yang then left. Li didn't follow him instead began to think. Now he found out that he was a descendant of Li Yang the first cult leader so he was sure that he, more than anyone deserved to become the next leader of the Lotus Dragon Cult. After a few minutes the boy picked up and old knife,chinese one,and wondered if someone was locked here the Li walked out of the basement and while walking in front of the academy he fell on the grass, feeling tired, too tired. Hwang told him that this was probably caused by that thing, since it didn't killed him. In exchange it took some of his energy to copy him and his abilities. "First part of my plan is finished. I am going to kill Jing yes, and even with that sword that old man won't be able to kill me. "Li said to Hwang while laughing like a maniac, and then suddenly he and his dragon fainted, because of the large amount of energy which was sucked from his body by that monstrosity which now was in the academy. It looked like him and used his abilities.

Back at the academy...

Cassandra was walking around, doing whatever her professor of an adoptive parent commanded. The sighed in complete boredom. Nass, her little Jiminy cricket at times. was busy ogling girls instead of doing his job. It also didn't help that their vision was connected. "Nass! I swear to God you little perv!" Some students looked at her for a second. The skinny guy of the group was a bit intimidated, while the bigger guys were looking at her body. Ugh...perverts. One had snuck up behind her. "Hey! How are you sweet he-YOW!" He had put his hand on her shoulder, right next to her mouth. That was no man's land for one sole reason: she was a biter and couldn't control it. And she bit hard. The guy was now doing the 'I'm in soooooo much pain' dance. Pathetic. He was also whining like a dog that got sprayed by a water gun. She kept walking as they judged her, which she believed they were doing. She suppressed a tear or two before moving on. That guy would be fine. He was hairy though. She spit out his hand hair and gagged. Gross.

A few minutes later...

She found someone lying unconcious on the grass. She knelt next to him. He looked chinese. He was wearing a kimono of something. SHe snapped her fingers in front of his face. She sighed as she gently kicked his side. Then she used her powers. The chinese guy was now getting rained on. It was usually her storm of choice for annoyance. She walked ten feet away from him as the storm continued. Why do I get these stupid chores? She stood and watched with Disturbix in halberd form.

Li and Hwang waked shortly after they collapsed, both of them seeing that they were in the white void again. Strangely this happened again and again too many times. Maybe something wasn't right, maybe he still had something to do, or persons to discuss. Walking in that white infinity wasn't what he really wished now, even Hwang was with him, so the option that Hwang would find a solution and wake him was canceled from the beginning.
The dragon told the boy, offering him the saving solution"Li, this doesn't seem like a prison, for us, since we can move freely, I am sure we have to do something. Let's go straight ahead, then our scope will reveal itself."
The demon told like this wasn't his first time there, in the same place, but this was just one of his secrets."The boy thanked his master, for the advice, and started walking ahead, being a little insecure about what they could find.
But Li and the Hwang never expected to see them. All of them were locked in some kind of energy prisons, circles, and they were restrained. They couldn't speak anymore, but they were still looking at Li with hate and after their body language, it was sure, they would try to kill the boy, if they had the chance, but Li killed them a long time ago.
Looking at them, through Li's head a flashback, more of an unwanted memory came back to the surface.
10 months ago in the capital of the Chinese province of Shandong, Jinan, the boy always with Hwang, Jing and those 20 Magni and their demons from all over the world were having a meeting. Jing told them why they were called, Li was supposed to form an entirely new class with them, to assassinate the students and to find something which could destroy the academy like that copy thing , but none of them agreed and they warned Jing, that if he will send Li at the academy, or if they found out that he called another meeting, with other persons, they would warn the headmaster about his plan.
From that day, the operation was delayed, and Li had to kill them one by one, without alerting the others.
Now he was was looking at them telling to Hwang"This place, they aren't alive, they can't talk, but I can feel something strange, something that makes me feel guilty."He told to Hwang,the dragon almost not believing that the boy said something like this, for a few seconds he asked himself if Li was joking in front of them so that he could mock them afterward."Maybe it's their sadness. But Jing will surely attempt to kill you, and take your powers, using them.Since Let me tell you something.Li Yang is the founder of the Lotus Dragon cult but he isn' the greedy person,looking for power as he's described in the history.I've spent the first part of my life with Li Yang,so i know him better than anyone.After his wife gave birth to,2 childrens,a boy and a girl,she died.He was devastated,and after some researches he found about the Lotus Dragon.Li Yang truely believed that he could revive his wife,if we revived the Lotus Dragon.After his death,there were 16 cult leaders,but none of them was a descendant of Li,do you imagine how it was for those who were descendants of Li Yang,to be used as weapons,and none of them to become the cult leader.All of them were great persons with the exception of our current leader.Boy you are a descendant of Li Yang,so you are the most suited to rule our cult.Please make the correct choice."Hwang told the boy directly what he had on his soul and , this was the reality, harsh one, but he had to accept it and move forward, and by doing so Li's duty was to kill Jing.
Their souls were now used, and their voices were gone, so the boy felt that it was his duty to defend them."I apologize, and to ALSO your demons. It seems that in the end I was a fool who was manipulated and because of me you are all death. By killing Jing I will revenge all of you. I can't lose my morality, not now when someone wants to take my life.But even after this will be over,i swear that as long as i will live,my life will be in our service,i will redeem for my sins.Your names will be in the history of the cult,and in my heart forever. Goodbye everyone and i apologize. Master Hwang let's go, we must avenge them."
Shortly a light surrounded all the dead Magni's as if they were summoned by someone,but before dissapearing they were able to tell to Li just a few words i
"Long Live Li Wen"
After the boy told what he had to say, a tear falling on the ground, Hwang was more than astonished to see that the boy changed, maybe this happened because of that place, and the sadness in it. One moment both of them felt something and waked up.It seems that someone used a rain, created by magic, good method to wake them but not a desired method for Li, and for his kimono. Lifting up from the ground, with the dragon as always on his shoulder, Li told to the new girl"Thanks, now you can stop this rain.And you should run.There is a beast in the basement that i released it.It looks like me,since it's speciality is to copy.Maybe you should call the headmaster."He told her,Hwang telling the boy"If the headmaster comes he might as well,take your life."Li responded not scared at all"Still you know what i did them.I surely deserve to die but i need to repay my sins.And maybe he knows about Jing"For the first time,they didn't speaked in chinese,since both of them didn't considered that this was a mission.Now their lifes were in danger,and they had to kill the current cult master in order to survive.

Cassa watched the boy get up. Eh, he didn't seem that bad. Pretty good mood to be in after getting soaked. Still, a beast? No doubt the doppleganger in the basement. "So, you obviously know what it does. Still, only an idiot would let that thing out. It obeys no one. Thats why its locked up." After saying that, Cassa noticed the chinese boy's look alike twin was running towards them. "Wait! That's the imposter!" After saying that it leaped at Cassa. Cassa raised Disturbix just in time to block its attack. It slashed at her head, but she ducked and rolled out of the way. It lunged again as she uppercut with her weapon. The thing was lifted into the air and it landed on its feet. It then circled around Cassa before lunging again. Cassa planted Disturbix into the ground before using it as a pole vault to evade the creature's next attack. As soon as it passed, she flipped, switching places with Disturbix and performing a downward flip smash, right on the creature's head. It turned to steel before the blow connected, but Cassa was stronger than it had anticipated. It buckled under the force of the downward full powered smash. Kneeling, it rolled away before forming an assortment of weapons and lunging once more. Cassa jumped, landing and performing a full circle spin dervish, knocking the creature back 5 feet. For something that turned itself into metal, it sure was light. While Disturbix couldn't cut his thing, it sure as hell knocked it back. Cassa smiled. "Now this is a fight! Idiots should let out monsters more often!" With that, the creature completely forgot about Li, who was behind it now.

The Headmaster

The headmaster entered his secretary’s office to be greeted by her dead body, the metal knife still in her chest. Realizing what may be at stake he rushed into his office and found his teacup broken and in pieces. The red diamond was gone and he let out a hiss of irritation there’s always that one student huh? shaking his head, the headmaster left his office and calmly walked to the basement of the academy. Hands behind his back he greeted the teachers and students that he passed by in the hallway.

Walking down the dank stairs he reached his destination hoping the student wasn’t idiotic enough t let the beast go. But alas he did and the headmaster let out a sigh. “Now why would he do such a thing knowing what’ll happen, kids these days, thinking their invincible and such that’s how we lose a few bright minds to that false pretense.” The headmaster left the basement and chose to follow the magic trace the boy had left behind but was led on a wild goose trace.

hmm seems I was following the wrong trail. Who I wish to find is the really culprit and not the copycat. “ah Miranda would you be a dear and find the child for me, it would be greatly appreciated.” He spoke kindly to something besides his shoulder. There was a shimmer of light and something seemed to be moving in the air, like heat waves but you couldn’t see it unless you were looking for something specific. He followed her to the front of the school to find a student engaged in battle with the being, the culprit of the whole thing standing behind the girl.

“Why must I have such idiotic students? Miranda could you please tell me why?” letting out a tired sigh he chose to watch them from a distance invisible to them but the being, a creature that you could not hide from very easily especially when they had already copied your abilities. Rubbing the bridge of his nose as if he had a headache and knowing from past experience he was bound to get in a little while.

"Now this is a fight! Idiots should let out monsters more often!" Alas the being did not appreciate being played with by the girl and so it decided to up its game especially after the girls comment. The headmaster let out another sigh and before anyone realized it he had stepped between the two. “Now I must say idiots should know their places especially when their dumb enough to face a monster they could not dream to defeat at their level” he glared at the girl his gaze then flickered over to Li. it would be him “Miranda would you please get these two out of here” the air around his two students shimmered and suddenly they were picked up by something they would have no way of ever comprehending. “Oh do keep an eye on the boy, don’t let him out of your sight”

Now it was just him and the being or rather him at the moment. “So you finally got what you wanted, you’re free but you must realize I won’t be so lenient as our last encounter. This time I will kill you and you won’t be coming back.” The only reply he got was a dark chuckle unlike the real headmaster who would never chuckle in such a way. “Boy do you really understand the situation you’re in right now. I am still as young and supple as I was back then, and you. You have become just an old shell of your former self. I could easily crush you like a bug.” The headmaster grimaced as he was well aware of that fact. He wasn’t as powerful as he was back in the day but it didn’t mean he couldn’t harm this creature in some way or another. “I am well aware of that fact, so no need to pity me. I can assure you I still have enough power to beat you at least for now.”

And with those kind words of old friends the two fought but it was a very short fight. Leaving the headmaster tired and the monstrosity had high tailed it out of there, but not without a few cuts to lick and tend to. The headmaster was not so lucky and had a nasty bite mark on his arm. “Ugh I’m too old for this” he said quietly to himself. He walked back over to the two students and looked over at his demon; who to the students was nothing but a shimmer of light that you still could not see. He towered over the two and gently laid a hand on both their shoulders but kept a steel grip to keep the fighter from running away.

He looked down at the both of them and frowned “ah I see you must be Cassandra, Banks daughter, and your father how is he. Haven’t heard from him for a while now, hope everything is going well at home” his frown turned to a small smile but it flickered and his grip on her shoulder tightened. “But I thought his daughters would be smarter than what you have shown me today. You must realize you could possibly have been killed and now where would that leave you, eh? Don’t just jump onto battle just because you want to have fun, they do have consequences and you will one day pay for them dearly my dear”

Then turning his head to Li his smile disappeared. “And as for you, I will deal with you later. Now just sit for a while I deal with Ms. Banks here” he left Li at his office but not without supervision granted to him by Miranda. Not that Li would realize this until it was too late and he decided to do something stupid. After dropping off Cassandra at the girl’s dorm he walked briskly back to Li and was slightly disappointed the boy hadn’t left yet. hm I was hoping he did so I could have a solid excuse to punish him oh what a bad thought sir, surely you wouldn’t wish a punishment upon such a sweet student. Even if he let that thing out? a smile played at his lips at the words of his demon who now decided to make the briefest of appearances. You would have had to be looking directly at the shimmering spot to have caught a glimpse of her serpentine body. He led Li to a chair in front of his desk, while he himself went to a cabinet in the back of the room and got a few bandages to fix up his arm. “So tell me Mr. Wen, what had you hoped would happen when you released that monster. Surely after doing all this research you would have figured it out by now that it does mean to act in peace but in violence. And there is no point in trying to hide it; I know who you are and what you’ve been doing. I’ve known for some time now I simply chose not to do anything about it in hopes you had changed your mind. But as you can see I was wrong.” Tying the bandage tight he leaned back against his desk and waited for Li to answer.

After the boy waked the girl told him that only an idiot would let the beast out. Still she didn't have any idea that Li did this at the order of the cult's leader but now he changed his mind and what he wanted to do. Shortly she observed the beast, Li looks at it could not believe that it was a perfect copy of him. The girl and the beast engaged in a fight, the monster ignoring Li like he was never there.
The creature even turned into metal,and formed metal weapons.It was a short but pretty tough fight,surely the beast didn't engaged in a fight with Li and Hwang,since they were the ones reponsable for it's escape.
Still Li was prepared to counter attack, and Hwang to use one of his prized abilities.
Then the headmaster came Li being scared a little. The headmaster's demon took him and Hwang, now Li wondered what will happen to them. Hwang tells him"Don't you worry boy, and if you allow me I will speak for you. It is a delicate matter and I am sure I can handle it."
The boy quickly responded"As you wish Master Hwang."The headmaster spoke to the girl named Cassandra, while they were in his office guarded by his demon. The headmaster led Li to a chair, Li takes a seat waiting for what will happen. Hearing him the boy told the headmaster"You will have an answer but not from me.I was stupid and used, but this is what happens with those who are descendants of Li Yang."
He waked to the reality, a beast was free in the academy and could kill anyone whenever it wanted, even the ex cult leader could not defeat it and this situation was even worse now that almost no one was in the academy. The dragon started speaking to the headmaster introducing himself"I am Hwang from Shangri La, a Yin dragon and his demon, and also Xin's son the Ying dragon who was the demon of Li Yang. Now I will speak for him.
The boy many months ago killed 20 Magni and their demons, but he used a sword from Jing, the leader of a cult named the Lotus Dragon. That sword captures the souls of the ones killed by it and we are sure that Jing will try to kill my boy because of his metal abilities.
Jing is an old fool but a pretty dangerous one , even the previous cult leader wasn't able to defeat the beast and he died when he was young and in his prime. I am not sure if you heard about him, Zhao the Fire Master. Anyway enough with legends. I assure he feels bad for what he did, and we would like to help you to stop this beast. My abilities will surely be useful to you, taking in consideration that I mastered them at maximum."After that the dragon finished, saying what he considered necessary Li telling
"You can accept our help or punish us, but I want to redeem what I made, and kill Jing, I want to make Li Yang's spirit proud of me, since I am his descendant. Also I found this Chinese knife in the basement, it's extremely old but still in a good shape. This isn't the knife of the previous cult leader, that's sure, maybe it was the knife of one of the cult leader, but there were 15 cult leaders, Jing being the 16 leader."Then the boy showed the old knife to the headmaster putting it on the table , not being aware that this was Li Yang's knife and that it still had Li Yang's energy in it.
Shortly the knife started to be covered by water the water exiting the knife came near Li Wen surrounding him like an armor and then turned back in the water turned back in the knife. This left Li almost shocked, while Hwang was thinking at every possibility keeping his calm and concentrating on what happened.

The Headmaster


"You will have an answer but not from me. I was stupid and used, but this is what happens with those who are descendants of Li Yang."

The Headmaster looked at him, a frown showing his displeasure at his answer, but he’ll wait until whoever was going t speak for him spoke. hmm what a troublesome child he’ll be, a descendant of Li Yang interesting in his thinking he began to rub his chin thoughtfully and nearly missed when his demon began to speak.

"I am Hwang from Shangri La, a Yin dragon and his demon, and also Xin's son the Ying dragon who was the demon of Li Yang. Now I will speak for him.

The boy many months ago killed 20 Magni and their demons, but he used a sword from Jing, the leader of a cult named the Lotus Dragon. That sword captures the souls of the ones killed by it and we are sure that Jing will try to kill my boy because of his metal abilities.

Jing is an old fool but a pretty dangerous one , even the previous cult leader wasn't able to defeat the beast and he died when he was young and in his prime. I am not sure if you heard about him, Zhao the Fire Master. Anyway enough with legends. I assure you he feels bad for what he did, and we would like to help you to stop this beast. My abilities will surely be useful to you, taking in consideration that I mastered them at maximum."


He listened intently but didn’t say anything-yet-that is since Hwang looked like he had more to say. to the maximum you say, hmp I doubt it but we’ll have to discuss that later in the absence of his Magni’s presence

"You can accept our help or punish us, but I want to redeem what I made, and kill Jing; I want to make Li Yang's spirit proud of me, since I am his descendant. Also I found this Chinese knife in the basement, it's extremely old but still in a good shape. This isn't the knife of the previous cult leader, that's for sure, maybe it was the knife of one of the cult leader, but there were 15 cult leaders, Jing being the 16 leader."

The headmaster reached for it but then Li went and put it on his desk, where it then did the strangest thing. Shortly after letting go of the knife, it started to be covered with water. It then left the knife and went towards Li Wen, surrounding him. The water became like armor and then it turned back to normal water, flowing back into the knife it resided in. The Headmaster looked from Li (who looked shocked) and the knife with a raised eye brow. He opened his mouth and sucked on his teeth, an old force of habit that he hated, before finally saying something. “Hmm strange indeed” and with that he left his spot at the front of his desk and plucked the knife from its resting spot. He walked to behind his desk, opening one of its draws and dropped the knife inside making sure that it was locked and he made a show of it too.

“Okay, so here’s what we’re going to do. Li you are a very promising student and I realize you were simply led astray by your so called need to please your ancestors. However I don’t believe in that so from today onwards you are to be put on probation. Do you know what it means to be on probation?” without waiting for an answer he continued. “Probation means no magic, the use of magic during your probation period means you will be expelled and labeled as a spy for the rest of your life. So I’m sure you wouldn’t want that now would you? And no, don’t answer that it was a rhetorical question. From here on out your abilities will be kept under lock and key so until your Magic teacher returns from her field trip to the Human City you will be kept under watch. So when she comes back she will seal your abilities for the time being and only she can undo them. Is that understood, so if you can excuse me I have a mess to clean up without sending the school in disarray.”

He rubbed his temples and left his position behind the desk and went to the door. Upon opening it he paused for a brief moment and glanced back at Li. “oh and what ever happened here, stays here. Don’t tell anyone what you did besides what they know is that clear.” Once again not waiting for an answer the Headmaster left the room, the shimmer in the air also disappeared meaning Li was not under surveillance at the moment but he would be the moment he stepped out of that office.

After hearing the headmaster Li had to support the situation. He could not agree with this probation because that will expose him to any attempt of assassination. Without the metal, Li would have to use only hand to hand combat, and no kind of powers. Hwang was and will always be with him, as a kind of a bodyguard; still he could be defeated easily by someone from the cult.

"Master Hwang I must stay here and after that, my powers must be taken for some time, or until they will think that I changed. This is the worst situation not to mention that the cult could attack this academy in any moment. So what should we do?” The boy asked the dragon, knowing that Hwang will offer him good advice as always. After a few moments while thinking, Hwang responded "Well you are right; the cult will probably attack the academy. But now we must stay here, if someone comes after you kill him, but since the headmaster said you can't use magic, I will use my magic to help you."

The two of them were stuck there without having any idea about any upcoming danger. And as always the tip was more than good advice, it could lead the boy to the correct path of death.
Meanwhile he told Hwang "Master Hwang, please go and check the high school. And don't you worry about me, I’m sure everything will be ok." The dragon did as the boy told him. Both of them not knowing that Jing was already there. The dragon headed in the opposite direction, Li knelt for the first time and prayed; apologizing to the previous cult leaders for what he did "I am a stupid descendant of Li Yang. I ask for forgiveness from my Lords and at the same time masters, from all the cult leaders. I will try to remake my mistake once I have the chance. Please forgive this fool, I have been gifted with a great element but my head was empty. What's the use of having this element? The blood of Li Yang and a dream if I can't make it true. For all of you, for all the previous 16 leaders of the cult, I will be the next leader." The boy was now alone and exposed to any kind of threat still maybe someone looked after them, maybe it was the headmaster's demon. Still this wasn't a good situation. After he finished praying, Li stood up, only to feel weakened; suddenly it was like he was left without a major quantity of life force and energy at the same time. Li felt a great pain. It was the first time he experienced something like this, this type of pain which suddenly appeared. Before reaching the couch, which was in the office, he fainted for the third time while here.

He got up only to find himself in another dimension. This was like a dream; it wasn't the desert white void, but a beautiful hill. Someone helped him up and it was Li Yang." You? How? What is happening?” Li asked. Yang then spoke, "From the day you born we watched you. But recently with your prayer you impressed us. We are with you but we are dead and useless in combat. However our strong will to protect our dear people and our dreams to make them come true is yours. You have the will of all 16 leaders. Boy, you will be great, like me. I hope they will call me a failure and you Li Wen; the one who was like a mountain. And Li Yang the one who was a like a flower; crushed by you, the mountain. You weren't born with this element just to be a war machine and a killer. Li Wen you were born to become greater then all of us and succeed where we as humans failed. But now for some advice; there is a time when you must show mercy to someone.”

“I am sure that time will come." Yang finished speaking. The man was happy now that the boy; his descendant was ready to follow the right path." I thank you and all 16 lords. I receive your will and be sure that I will pass it on others too.” Before everything disappeared every lord presented themselves to Li. Telling his full name and element all of which kneeled before Li Wen, even Li Yang. It wasn’t just an honor to see all of them gathered. It was a dream which now was reality. “All of you were truly the Magni's from China. I never wanted to humiliate you by becoming powerful. I want to become like you who died for someone. And all of you dreamed the same thing; a unified cult with the will of peace.”

This will happen I swear. After that I will build a monument for all of you. The 16 lords who bestowed their powerful will on this fool, Li Wen. It's a good name." Wen said crying out of happiness before everything disappeared like a dream. Unfortunately remaining in the same state, unconscious, while in the real world Li cried too when he meet all the leaders.

GM POST


It’s been a few(3) day since the field trip to the Human City. While there a monster arrives and begins to terrorize the city, decimating a quarter of it. In turn the visiting Magni took it into their own hands and tried to stop this monster. After a long battle the Magni finally defeated this monster now known as Maledict, however it came at a terrible price. The life of Connor Flanagan the brother of Kieran lost his life in fighting Maledict.

The students and teacher later realized that Maledict was in fact a young Magni who had fused with his demon and thus created the alternate persona; Maledict who thought only of protecting its Magni at first. Now after all that’s happened Ms. Brumfield was greeted by a room ransacked for what no one will really know. But it seems the new transfer student Li Wen had a hand in it as the Headmaster has sealed his abilities away for the time being and is now on probation along with Seagus their trial student who along with Li had his abilities sealed away. Their demons own abilities have been restricted so they will be unable to perform at their best.

Now that a few days has passed since then Ms. Brumfield has brought her students to the arena where they once had to fight one another, but instead of a duel the students are to participate in a game of capture the flag. The usual rules still apply and you have permission to use your abilities however you cannot use them once you reach the area around the flag which is a neutral zone.

The teams are as listed below:
Team A (May make a name of their own if they choose to do so)
-Kirie Askumoto
-Melody Mckinley
-Cassandra Banks
-Opal King
- Kieran Flanagan
Team B (May make a name of their own if they choose to do so)
-Jaxon Rhys
-Jayson Goldsworthy
-Mallory Banks
-Amaya Sokeitsu
-Venice Mikaelo

No one is allowed to sit out on this no matter the reason. The only ones however who will be unable to participate are Li Wen and Seagus Deaves due to being on probation, the only acception to this rule is if one of the teams is short on a player during the game. As well as Aberdeen Andrews who has been holed up in her room since the trip back from the city. No one has seen the young Magni very much not even the demons have seen Luciana very much either. Ms. Brumfield has left that alone under the impression Aberdeen is sick for the time being and will not delve into the girls business.

3 new students have been welcomed to Ms. Brumfields class which are Amaya Sokeitsu, a clumsy red head who is an acquaintance of Kirie, and the two sisters Cassandra and Mallory Banks, whose father is a teacher at the academy and is known for his inventions.

The setting starts off with both teams making plans on how to win Capture the Flag. However due to the circumstances of some of the Magni, namely Jaxon Rhys and Kieran Flanagan, whose abilities allow them a means of teleportation without any interference from the opposing team. They are given the handi-cap of not being able to use said ability if they are in possession of the flag.

Two days earlier…
Mallory got off the plane to find the airport in complete chaos. “Wow…what happened?” The National Guard was here, too…no doubt to help secure this place. But still, wasn’t this a bit much? Well, that’s what she thought at first, until she saw the footage of the city, entire buildings destroyed, the obituaries, and the mysterious events that caused it. They were claiming a hijacking did all the damage; apparently 3 hi jacked planes smashed into the city. Or, so the story goes. “Mallory?!” “Oh, Captain Rhodes!” “How’s my little snowflake?!” The captain, Randy Rhodes, had been a family friend of the Banks for years and years, every now and then watching Mallory, or Snowflake, as he called her, due to her hair and skin tone. Whenever her father went on a business trip, Rhodes was there to watch her since her mother had walked out. The two hugged and laughed when two soldiers ogled her. The captain looked at them sternly and they looked away rather quickly. “So, how’s your dad doing?” “He’s doing great! I heard he’s working on some new stuff!” “Heh, I owe that man my right leg, literally. If he hadn’t fixed me up, I’d be in a wheel chair or crutches. So where did you come back from?” “Germany. It was alittle cold but it was a wonderful trip.” “Ja?” Mallory laughed. “Ja!” “So, I take it you want to go to your dad’s house?” “Yeah, but this security is so thick. What happened?” “The city was attacked; a lot of stuff went down during the event. From what I know, they’re still looking through the wreckage. You…want to go to the school don’t you?” Unlike much of the military, Randy Rhodes knew all about the Magni. He had to; otherwise he would not be able to watch her when she was little. He also, after much consultation between Henry and the Headmaster, was entrusted with a key to the portal for emergencies only. The captain and Mallory gathered her luggage and loaded up a military jeep. Rhodes turned off the GPS before driving Mallory to the school.

An hour later…

“You know, I’m used to all this magic stuff, but godamn! It always freaks me out.” Mallory chuckled. “Your reaction is pretty understandable. In fact, it’s a great reaction. My mom…walked out on my dad and I when she found out. You, on the other hand, just get a little freaked out.” This was their conversation while unloading the jeep in the Academy. They carried the luggage to her room. “Now, I have a post to return to.” “At ease, Captain!” They saluted and smiled. Then they hugged one more time before Captain Rhodes exited the Academy. Mallory began unpacking when a rather large shadow appeared in her doorway. Then someone tackled her and both her and her attacker fell on the bed. The attacker grabbed a weapon and hit Mallory in the head with…a pillow? Mallory looked up to see the grinning face of none other than Cassa. Mallory pushed her off and grabbed a pillow and they both engaged in a pillow fight, laughing their asses off while hitting each other with bags of bird feathers. Finally, after about 20 minutes of being less mature than 5th graders, they hugged and laughed. “Welcome back!’ Cassa shouted, her strong embrace slightly crushing Mallory’s rib cage. “I missed you too, Cassa!” Mallory said in between breathes. Nass, who was on the ground, was looking up. “I missed you t-AGH!” Cassa gave Nass a well deserved kick. “Cassa, you have to tell me everything that’s happened since I’ve been gone!”

Down beneath the school…

Professor Henry Banks had always welcomed the unexpected. However, that doesn’t mean he always liked what he found. A young man, no doubt a Magni, was brought to him for medical examinations. What he found, or rather what he HADN’T had surprised him more than anything. This child, this young man…had no organs. And yet…he was alive? How? No doubt his powers have some role in it, but to possess no functional organs? It was beyond belief. “Hmm, I suppose that’s what happens when you don’t eat or drink for an entire year! And you said he was a fusion?” “Yes, Henry. For the 500th time, he was a fusion.” The Headmaster examined the X-rays and the MRI scans. “Why do you take such interest in that topic, Banks?” “Well, not only is this the first fusion Magni to be seen in centuries, but he’s ALIVE! Fusions usually die once the spell is deactivated. Either that or their powers burn out. What I’m seeing here, however, is neither. You said he still had powers to seal away, and from the looks of his body, I can see why the seals didn’t need to be that powerful. His powers…they’re being used as a life support system. In a way, he’s not alive at all.” “Yet, you can change this?” Banks looked at the headmaster with a look that screamed, ‘are you serious right now?’ The headmaster shrugged. “Very well, fix him up.” “Just so you know, sir. After I fix him up, you’re going to have to fix those seals. No doubt, his powers will be quite improved once I get his body repaired.” “Noted. Also, your daughter is back from Germany.” “…Really? That’s great! I’ll go see her as soon as I get this started!” The young man, now known as Seagus Deaves , was place on a circular platform. Its twin hung 15 feet above it. Henry pressed a button and both platforms roared to life as Seagus was lifted by an invisible force produced by the two discs. Once Seagus was upright, Banks slowly turned a dial until it was in full power. Seagus, unconscious, was now in the center of a bright column of light, a powerful beam of radiation and Banks’ magic, permeating his body and skin, slowly rebuilding his organs. With a satisfied nod, Professor Banks went to go see his daughters.

Present…

Mallory and Cassandra have geared up for capture the flag. Both Disturbix and Maelstrom present, they headed to the arena to meet up with their team mates. “Good luck, Cassa!” “You too, Mal. I won’t go easy on you.” “Good!”

Aberdeen heard that the others were going to be playing “Capture the Flag” and smiled but quickly changed her expression to a frown. She didn’t have the strength to get up and go play with the others. Heck she didn’t even feel like going out of her room for the past few days since the defeat of Maledict which was rumored to be the fusion of a Magni named Seagus and his demon. She only went out to do the essentials like eating and going to the bathroom. Actually she wouldn’t have had the energy to do those things as well, but her demon Luciana made sure to force her to get up and at least take care of herself.

Luciana wasn’t sure why Aberdeen was acting the way that she was. She figured that Aberdeen was probably being her usual depressed self when she felt useless. Aberdeen had at times complained about how she was a pointless figure in battle, offering a shitty plan, having powers that only attracted the monster to herself, and worse of all, not having the strength to save anyone. Connor had died, Melody was almost killed, Kieran and Jaxon had to use a lot of strength, and everyone else had been ensnared by the tentacles, and what did Aberdeen do? Nothing. Just stand there confused and frozen. Lucy knew what Aberdeen would do when she would be depressed so she had to make sure Aberdeen didn’t self harm herself; however she couldn’t stop her all the time. Sometimes, Aberdeen would grab her fighting knife and carve symbols she had read about in books that would bring her death. Her scars were still there on her arms, but she hid them and forced Luciana not to inform the nurses of her addiction to self injury. Other times Aberdeen would grab some of her disposable rag dolls that each resembled her likeness and abuse them by slitting their throats, punching them like crazy, gouging their eyes out, and other horrible deeds. She would say ”Okay I can’t hurt myself, I’ll just hurt the “other me’s” and continue her abuse. Lucy was lost by her Magni’s silence and violence. However, this time she decided to speak.

“I can’t do capture the flag…I’m useless in that game for any team,” Aberdeen said pessimistically while lying down on her stomach.

”Sure you can Abby. You love capture the flag! You would use your invisibility when no one was looking to secretly grab the flag and make it look like someone else did,” Luciana said reminiscing the times she saw her Magni happy.

”That was when everyone was normal and I wasn’t. Here everyone is talented and I’m…I’m just weak compared to everyone else,” Aberdeen said with eyes downcast.

”Abby! Sure everyone here has talents but so do you! I know you think you cannot do much but you gotta have confidence in yourself!”

Aberdeen couldn’t take it anymore. Lucy kept on trying to keep her happy but Aberdeen just couldn’t believe she would be any good because of what had happened. She couldn’t contain the secret reason why she had been in a slump this whole time and burst out.

”LUCY I CAN’T BECAUSE I COULDN’T PROTECT MOM, DAD, or GRANDMA OKAY!!?!?”

At this point, Aberdeen covered her face with her pillow and started crying. Tears kept streaming from her eyes as she recounted the phone call she received from her cell phone.




~A FEW DAYS AGO~

Aberdeen heard her cell phone ring in the tone “Symposium Magarum” thinking how ominous sounding it is for what had transpired. She decided she would change it to a happier tone later and for now decided answering it. Her mother’s name appeared on the screen of her phone and she wondered whether her parents had found out about the city’s destruction.

”Hello?” Aberdeen asked.

“Is this Aberdeen Andrews?” A man’s voice said.

Aberdeen was confused as to why someone else was on the phone. It didn’t even sound like her dad or anyone else she’d know. She wasn’t sure whether to say yes but she figured that they wouldn’t be able to find her anyway if she was in the Liuena barrier. Speaking of which, phone calls seem to still work within it.

“Y-Yes, this is Aberdeen Andrews. What do you want with me?”

“My name is Dr. Sanders. We’re sorry to inform you, Aberdeen, but your parents are in the hospital in serious condition and your grandmother Alma…passed away last night.”

Aberdeen froze in her place with her sight seemingly fading in and out. She couldn’t believe what this man was saying. She slammed the front door shut and locked it, then finally asked, “How…?”

“Your family was in the city while it happened. I don’t know the details but it seemed that your grandmother was crushed in the large debris and your parents were knocked down and unconscious. They haven’t woken up yet…we’ll keep tabs on them and inform you if they do but it might be awhile. They are being treated in St. Michael’s Hospital and-“

Aberdeen pressed the end call button and hung up. She didn’t want to see anyone…not even her parents and just sat in her room all day crying.




After crying for a long while, Aberdeen explain to Lucy the phone call. Luciana listened faithfully to her Magni and behind her mask she expressed much grief over her loss. Lucy then tried to convince Aberdeen by saying, “Abby how is it your fault?”
“If I was strong enough…if I somehow had those seeing powers that Alma told me she had…I could’ve predicted they would go to the city and be in danger. I could’ve warn them… or I could’ve protected them! If only…”

Suddenly the air in the room began to stir and turn freezing cold. Aberdeen shivered in her spot hugging herself to keep warm while Lucy stayed in front of her on her guard.

“Abby, I feel an ominous presence, watch out!”

Aberdeen stayed on her toes trying to sense and see the presence. It was really really strong, as though there were multiple spirits in her room. She could hear them chanting something to her.

“Vengeance….Vengeance…Kill for the Vengeance…”

“What do you want from me??” Aberdeen yelled.

”Use your vengeance…kill for vengeance…”

Suddenly Aberdeen felt dizzy and fainted, the world above her turning black. She did see a familiar three familiar people: Connor, Grandma Alma, and the ghost girl in white.




When Aberdeen awoke, she wasn’t in her room anymore but in a different room that had medical equipment. Aberdeen was confused as to why she was in here because she doesn’t remember even getting out of her room. She tried to get up but something was on top of her. She threw whatever it was off of her and took a closer look. Aberdeen gasped upon looking at Seagus who was unconscious and bleeding on his arms. She listened to his breathing hoping that he was still alive, and upon hearing faint breaths coming out of his mouth Aberdeen relaxed a bit. Looking closer at his arms, Aberdeen noticed Japanese symbols carved in his arms (here). She wondered what the symbols meant and who carved them on there. Realizing she was holding something she looked at her hands and was shocked to find herself holding her fighting knife covered in blood! Not only that, her arms were also with new cuts that were closer to her hands than her previous ones. They had the same symbols as Seagus did on his arm. Aberdeen freaked out looking left and right trying to figure out if anyone has or would see her like this.

”Did I do this!?! Wha…what happened!?!?”

Aberdeen looked around the room and saw two disks that were broken next to Seagus and the room in disarray as though a struggle had occurred. She didn’t want to be caught like this with her bloody knife and unconscious Seagus, so she decided to run for it. Aberdeen found some bandages and wrapped her arms so that the bloody message wouldn’t be seen. She didn’t wrap Seagus because she figured they would notice something like that right away and she wouldn’t want to leave prints to her. ”Prints!” Aberdeen thought. What if I touched something?? Aberdeen began to get a cloth and started wiping Seagus, the disks, the area of the floor she was lying on, cabinets she opened to get the supplies, and random objects that were disturbed. She didn’t think she’d get to all of them but she tried her best. Afterwards she used the cloth to wipe her bloody knife, wrapped the bloody cloth with another, and placed it inside her pocket tightly in so that no one would notice. She then sheathed her knife and turned invisible and intangible in case she happened to bump into someone. Aberdeen rushed to her room as silently as possible. When she got to her bed she closed her door and collapsed on her bed, trying to act casual as she wondered what the hell just happened.

Li waked up, a new day of humiliation for him. Three days ago he fainted and later when he wake up he had his powers sealed, his dragon had his powers restricted so Hwang can't use his power like before, it was just like all those years of mastering his abilities were now useless since the abilities lost half of their power. It was indeed a bad thing for him, Li thought that maybe the headmaster will protect him, will not let him be killed and to be left without his powers.
But this could be just what he was thinking, and nothing more as the boy was shocked when he waked up and saw that his powers were sealed.After that day when the monster attacked the human city he stayed almost 20 hours in his room, he slowly but surely fell into a depression. Hwang knew that this was just a temporary depression, but still this gave the enemy the perfect chance to take him easily, as Li won't oppose any resistance to them.

It was just like Li didn't wanted to live anymore. He is always sad and quiet because of what happened, but he hasn't become a madman still a depression isn't good. Hwang tried anything to revert Li to his normal state, but he realized that for this to happen Li would have to regain his element and something else to happen, Hwang thought about that something. He came to the conclusion that maybe that something was a meeting that should happen for Li to become how he was.
So Li was staying in his bed as usual, more than he needed to, Hwang was sure that this was the worst type of depression he ever saw during his 800 years.Hwang almost cried every day,and even now but he abstained, to not cry because only crying and doing nothing wouldn't help his partner, he was thinking when Li will come back to his original state, when I will get rid of this depression that was the question that haunted him for several days.

Hwang now was supposed to go with Li to the arena but because of this depression he was now supposed to go alone."Li I will go."He told to his partner then leaves the room. Li thought at himself as a person who was once a spy and now was just a failure, Li was believing that he was now good of nothing. Hwang stepped out of the room going to the arena, surely Miss Brumfield will ask him why Li isn't too, and then he would have to tell her what really happened with Li, as the dragon managed to hide Li's depression until now.Hwang finally reached the arena in a few minutes thinking at Li and what he is doing, after coming in the arena he saw Li coming, he was surprised to see Li.It was the first time, after a few days when he stepped out of his room for more than 4 hours the other 20 hours being his his room.

"Li this competition will surely be a great one."He said to Li, the boy only saying"Yeah."Hwang was sure that Miss Brumfield would find out about Li's depression. He looked at everyone,Hwang seeing 3 new persons, one of them being the Magni and the demon that he heard about, the ones who were responsible for attacking the human city. Not wanting to hide Li's depression he shouted toward Miss Brumfield, as Li took a seat and Hwang was staying on the boy's shoulder"Miss Brumfield we have something to speak."The dragon told her, wanting that she to come near them. Hwang didn't want that everyone to find about Li's depression.

Ms. Brumfield


It looked like things were getting underway and she was well aware of some of the students thoughts on this game. But she did it in hopes they would form better relations with one another and relieve their minds of their current burdens. The person who concerned her the most was Kieran who carried the largest out of all her students and had made sure to treat him well but not too much so it didn’t irritate him like it had her when she got like that. A few of the students were late but nothing wrong with that Aberdeen and Li have been absent a lot but more so Aberdeen who she hasn’t seen since coming back 3 days ago.

Then her name was called by someone, looking towards the direction of the call she saw Li and his demon Hwang. a frown appeared on her face thinking of what it was they had done especially when it came to destroying her room. The thing from the basement was still out and about, the headmaster had put a stricter ruling on curfew as they already had one case of a student being attacked. Shaking her head she walked over to the pair and sat down next to them making sure to lose her frown but she wasn’t about to smile.

"You called Hwang? what is it you would like to speak about?" her voice was somewhat kind but taking a closer look Ms. Brumfield noticed Li looked upset and he had been for the past few days. "Is Li alright Hwang?" was her next question.

A few seconds after he shouted, Hwang saw that Miss Brumfield was coming toward them."Very quick"He said in his mind, the dragon being ready to tell everything to the teacher. It was her duty to know that, as Li's teacher, and now he was thinking that this wasn't a good thing, to hide Li's depression from her."Yes, first I want to apologize for what we did, since Li is in this state he can't apologize too, so I will apologize for him too."He took a deep breath thinking how he should put it more exactly, as this wasn't an easy subject, and didn't know what kind of reaction she would have."Since his powers were sealed, he fell into a depression. I tried everything to bring him back to his original state, but nothing worked. This depression, it's like Li is thinking, that he is the greatest failure and he doesn't care about his life anymore. In this state, when Jing will come he will be like a man who is waiting for his death to take him. I came to the conclusion, that only two things can make Li escape this depression.
1. When he will regain his powers back and second a meeting with a person or persons, but I don't have any idea about this person."Hwang told to Miss Brumfield after that shed a tear, he really cared about Li and worried that his life was threatened, and he could be attacked anytime."Li isn't alright, in fact, I lived 800 years and I never saw a depression like this. This is the worst type of depression I've ever seen. If Li Yang was here, in one week he would have brought him back to normal, but I am not like Li Yang.I've lived so much, but I can't help my partner. Please, can you do something?"He asked Miss Brumfield to look at the persons in the arena. All of them were powerful and special, because he lived so much, just by looking at someone Hwang knew if that person was powerful or not.

But looking at Li, he saw a man lost in an abyss of regrets, which were the cause of his depression.He looked at a girl, a new student, which seemed very special and powerful too, it was Amaya, he was thinking that maybe she could help him .
Thinking a few seconds at a possibility, that maybe one of the students could partially help Li, to come back to his original state."I would really want that the probation period to end, so that Li can come back to normal, but as much as I would like to ask this, the headmaster would not agree. So maybe one of the students, could help Li?"He asked Miss Brumfield waits for an answer looking at her, it was a good decision to speak with her after all, the dragon knew he couldn't handle this by himself."Li forgive me for being unable to help you."The dragon told, Li replies something back in Chinese."He told me, Eternal Failure. Li thinks that he is an eternal failure. In this kind of moments I feel so worthless.After all, even if I lived so much and gained more experience than other persons, there are still situations like this that I can't resolve myself. That is why I am asking you to help Li.I can't support seeing him like this, I don't want that this depressing turn into a permanent one."After Hwang told what he had to tell the dragon was patiently waiting for an answer.The dragon was hoping that she will help them,as he couldn't just go to the headmaster and ask him to seal off Li's powers.

The moment Hwang started to speak she got a bit annoyed. Leaning forwards playfully she wagged her finger at them. "Now Hwang no need to apologize, you two have apologized enough." She continued to listen to his story or rather Li's since he was still sitting there all depressed looking.

"Hwang isn’t that how all depressions are. Li is fine he just needs to get over it. And your right he needs to be cheered up so he can feel "special" again. Unfortunately I have don't know when he will get his abilities back but for now just have him relax and act like any ol teenager. That should be good for him." smiling kindly at the two she reached forwards and patted Hwangs head to think a demon would be this upset over his Magni, the two must have a really strong relationship. I'm a bit jealous since mine is more like an S&M kinda thing. frowning a bit with a slight blush on her cheeks at having thought of such a thing Ms. Brumfield knew Amon heard her but was glad he didn’t act upon it.

"As for this person I think I know of a few people who can help Li but today why don't you two help me watch the game make sure everyone’s follow the rules and such? Maybe you can find the friend you need in a time like this" she grinned at the two. While she had been talking with Hwang, Kirie had gone up to her to inform her that Jaxon hadn’t showed up. “Well then I guess I’ll just have to bring him over.”

Ms. Brumfield went in search of Jaxon, found him and brought him back to the arena giving him a lecture about not coming when she told them they had to participate. Once there she left him with his team and returned to Li’s side. With a simple crack of thunder she had signaled for the game to start. From what she could see they were already on the move.

GM Post


Strange things had been happening ever since the arena incident. The lights would suddenly turn off, people would be found sleeping on the floor and nowhere near their dorm rooms or objects would be misplaced and found in the most bizarre locations. Ms. Brumfield took that entire week off so she could recuperate and try and get her thoughts back together. Among those strange things is that there have been rumors of a ghost haunting a certain hallway but only at certain times of the day as well as a rather mean one in the arena.

The Headmaster has made sure that everyone knows not to use the arena for the time being until a certain person arrived and got rid of the ghost. He held an assembly telling all the students and staff that it was most likely a student who had done all of this as a sort of joke. And most people believed him, well except the few who experienced this student’s joke and knew something just wasn’t quite right.

Sadly a fellow student won’t be with them this year. Aberdeen was asked by her parents to come home, the reason why she didn’t tell anyone other than it was a family matter nor did she tell them when she would be back. And so shortly after the arena incident Abderdeen packed up her things said goodbye and was gone.

A few days after Aberdeen had left and without any serious incidents the Headmaster released the ban on the arena but said that only teachers who had permission from the Headmaster were allowed to use it. That certain hallway however still gave people problems but after a while people got used to it.

But that didn’t matter as students were getting ready for a one week field trip outside of the school grounds. It is up to the class to decide where they want to go on this field trip. And this year Ms. Brumfields class decided to go to the beach. However the headmaster warned them to be extra careful now that word has been going around of the City incident. A lot of humans are becoming more and more aware of the magical world that Magni lived in and it could potentially put the Academy in danger.

So aside from the normal beach activities, which are up to the students, they have decided to hold a service for Connor who had died valiantly trying to protect his friends and succeeded in that. As well as a small party at the end of their one week stay at the beach. And this time the headmaster decided to be lenient with Seagus’s and Li’s punishment and has allowed the two to go along with the rest of their class on the field trip. However they still cannot use their magic and will be kept watched over nor can they go about along without a buddy.

Now we shall start off with everyone getting off the bus and finding their hotel rooms. They will be the same as how they were last time but if you would like it changed then tell me so I can change it. Also since BadBecca is away on sick leave and I’m not sure she will be able to get on the Bank sisters will room together so as not to inconvenience anyone.

The bus ride…
Or
Seagus got onto the bus, and was suddenly if not ominously assailed by looks of hatred save a special few. The look from the boy named Kieran was the worst. When he sat down, he sat down next to a girl, the same one that was next to him in the infirmary. Funny how things worked out.

He waved and spoke in his mind, but not out loud. ‘Hello.’

After his attempt at a conversation, Malice snuck out of his pocket.

“Seagus! What is the meaning of this?! Keeping me in your dust filled pocket like I was forgotten candy?! The nerve you have sometimes…”

Malice was a bit hopped up on the 32 Pepsis she just drank in celebration to going to the beach.

Seagus sighed and closed his eyes while smiling sheepishly. ‘Malice, what did we talk about before coming on the bus?’

“Making a scene? How is this making a scene?! Seagus, you need to stop thinking I’m just someone you can make do whatever you want!”

‘Malice! Behave or I’ll get right off this bus and take you with me. Is that clear?!’

Malice, who was set aback by her Magni’s intense mental exclamation, whined a bit before slowly falling to his lap.

“Yes sir, sorry sir…”

‘Malice, you don’t have to be like that. It’s just that you can be such a ham sometimes.’

“Hey!!!!!!”

‘Well, it’s true. And I believe you’ve made plenty of an entrance to this bus full of people.’

Malice snuggled in the folds of Seagus’ clothes.

“I can live with that, then.”

She said this quietly, with a pleased tone in her voice. Unbeknownst to her, The girl’s demon had been watching her…

The Inn…

Seagus and Malice were taking the elevator. Seagus leaned against the wall as Malice carried the bags. She had been ogled and nearly made a guy pass out due to her racy bathing suit.

‘It’s funny, you’d think people would notice how your blacker than charcoal, but no. They just notice you’re a girl…’

“Oh, Seagus, you simply must realize. This body looks good in any color.”

‘But did you have to wear a cheese colored bathing suit?’

Malice looked down momentarily and lifted her head high, eyes closed, and chest out in pride.

“I know I’m rocking this thing!”

‘If you say so…’

DING!

Malice and Seagus exit the elevator, and then proceed towards their room. Once inside, Malice drops the bags and begins running all over the room, talking and squealing like a teenager girl meeting their fantasy star. Seagus went to his bed and simply lay down, exhausted from the walking. It was nice to have full use of his legs back, but it was so demanding. At least for now, anyway. He closed his eyes and dozed off, trying to reclaim whatever energy he could. Malice’s antics didn’t help…

Li started walking back to his room Hwang apologizing to Mrs Brumfield while leaving after Li.He never wanted that something like this to happen,but it was prety hard even for an old dragon like him to take care of Li alone,wondering how Li didn't became a killer until now,knowing how sad he was.After all he was the only person that knew Li so well,so well that Hwang still believed that Li can regain his old self.But until now this was just a dream for Li to regain his old self Hwang knew what Li had to do,and what conditions had to be accomplished.Even so the dragon wasn't going to give up,he could never let Li in a condition like that,and if needed Hwang could give his life for Li.

During the week after the arena match,strange things happened as Hwang assisted to some of them only because he had to take care of Li.Li changed his whole program,started talking even lesser his state becoming worse,with every passing day.In every night during that week Li would wake up suddenly,leave the camera and walk like a madman who was been guided toward something precious to him.Hwang always waked up and looked for Li most of the times looking Li for two hours and coming back to their room in,most of the times, one hour.So the dragon was always sleeping during the midnight or after the midnight,still he was wondering why he always found Li at the same place where those incidents happened.What was the connection between those things and the young boy.It was something even he couldn't explain.

It seemed that the students would go on a fiel trip for one week.Something that was a good news for Hwang,thinking that maybe Li's behaviour could suddenly change from the worst,to something at least acceptable.While being near the bus Li looked at everyone with a strange face,also the persons in the bus looking at him like he was a freak.But that was only because he was a changed person since that day.After going with the bus toward the inn,the boy found himself in the inn not speaking with anyone only looking.Hwang was hidden in the boy's clothes,and could not reveal himself in a place with persons that did not knew about the Magni.After a half of hour Li managed to speak with someone and find his room.Going to their room,Hwang told to himself"Finally,i don't know what we would have done,if that person wouldn't have observed Li."Minutes later they were in the front of the door,the door of their room.Li opened and than closed it with the keys going straight to the bed.Hwang got out from his clothes telling him"Well that was a start.You didn't stared at the man,but still if that didn't happened we could have remained there for hours."

Li looked at Hwang not telling anything,Hwang being sad,since that day Hwang was always sad and barely controled himself to not cry.Some time later Hwang told to Li to go to the beachside and walk something that Li accepted,the old dragon being surprised.Walking there Hwang saw Miss Brumfield,through Li's clothes,and the others students,so he told to the boy to go in that direction where Miss Brumfield and the other students were. Hwang listened carefully because Li was in that condition,he had to do almost everything,and take care of Li every day.Sometimes the dragon felt that he couldn't continue.After Ms Brumfield told the necesarry stuff to them he asked her a little nervous,even if he had no right to do that yelling" Why the headmaster isn't doing nothing?He knows the condition in which Li is."Shortly after he apologized telling her"I am sorry,i think that all this time,when i didn't cried,i gathered a lot of anger and sadness in me.The last time i shouted to someone,was 100 years ago,and that happened because of another important even that changed back then my life just like now.Please forgive me."He said a tear falling,feeling all the pressure.

Li's safety now depended almost totaly on him,a dragon which's powers were partial sealed he was weaker than before so he could not protect Li like before,but Hwang wasn't going to give up protecting him.Li told him"Master it's not your fault,it's mine i am too weak."This wasn't the thing Hwang ever wanted to hear,Li to call himself weak.After Miss Brumfield told them what they were going to do,Li started walking back slowly to his room looking at what was sometimes starring for seconds at small things with no value.Hwang wondered how Li keep up with the others tomorrow,considering that this was the worst state of a person that he ever saw in 800 years.

Kirie

Kirie listened to Ms. Brumfield tell them what was planned for the trip. But seeing as he now had a lot of free time he thought of going to get something to eat. There was a lot for him to choose from and some of the vendors had a few games where you could win prizes.

As much as he wanted to play a game, he didn’t know anyone who would accept the prize. Then he had an idea, looking for Amaya, he saw her offering food to Li. Lately the kid looked pretty depressed which annoyed him. Without realizing it, Kirie had been expecting to have fun with Amaya at his side and return to the old times with his childhood friend.

“Well there are a few other things for me to do. I don’t need her to have fun.” he grumbled a bit. As if on cue his stomach grumbled asking for food. “Yeah, yeah, yeah sheesh I’ll eat jeez.” smiling a bit, Kirie went to one of the vendors and got fried squid. The way it tasted reminded him of all those times he and Amaya spent at the festivals where they used to live. But thinking about it made his heart ache a bit from the bad memories that came flooding in. enough of that! shaking his head to clear of any remaining thoughts.

Kirie decided maybe now would be a good time to see what the ocean had to offer him. There was still light out but only for the next hour or two. Most likely when the sky began to darken, Ms. Brumfield would call those in the water to get back on dry land.


Running to the water, he stripped of his outer clothes until he stood in nothing but his swimming trunks. Kirie stretched a bit showing off the muscles that could be seen as well as the smaller scars that riddled his body. One in particular caught the attention of many. Slightly embarrassed, Kirie rubbed his chest rethinking his plan of action. maybe I should have kept the shirt on. Mm oh well nothing I can do about it now. with a sigh, Kirie dove into the cold water and let it take him where it will. Of course he made sure he didn’t go too far from the shore.

After a while Kirie swam back to shore but he couldn’t find where he had put his glasses or shirt. “MM, doesn’t matter. Not like I needed them anyway.” Kirie only wore those glasses because they provided some comfort to him. When he wore them he was just a student, when they were off he got serious and was acting as disciplined ninja.

“Dammit and I forgot my towel too. I should have brought it before I left the inn.” frowning at having to walk around considerably wet. ugh! I could hurt someone real bad! glaring at the sand. “Dammit! Why do I have such an annoying ability!” he yelled to himself. In his anger Kirie kicked the sand around him and rubbed his head. After noticing the dark shadow that now loomed over him, Kirie calmed down.

A cold expression on his face, Kirie looked up to meet the eyes of said shadow. “What do you want?”

Amaya

Amaya was gulping down whatever food she could get her hands on. But after a while she ran out of money and a mischievous smile came across her face. who said I’d have to pay. Hehe I guess now’s a good time to use those stupid skills they taught me. grinning from ear to ear a spark in her eyes, Amaya quickly and without being noticed, she took whatever food she could steal.

After filling her hands with food, Amaya was satisfied and decided to look for a spot to sit at. That’s when she saw him sitting there on his own. “What was his name again? It started with an L- Li Oh yeah Li!” nodding in agreement with Diesel. Giggling a bit, Amaya walked over to the boy.

Smiling, “so what’s a guy like you standing here al alone?” she offered him some of the food she had gathered. Then taking a bit of her own, Amaya waited for his answer.

"Well I just listened to what Mrs Brumfield had to tell us, and after that decided to go my room, anyway how are you
doing?"Li quickly responded to the girl's question surprising Hwang with this action, Li observes Hwang looking at
Him being very surprised so the dragon told before he was going to be questioned"It's nothing. Well Miss, he isn't so
Fine for some time, still I hope this will be finished soon and he will come back to its former self. Well too much talk in
A response to a simple question."And after a few seconds Li told Hwang"You interrupted me."Hwang quickly
answering"Sorry."

Li took the food, that Amaya offered starting eating memories came back to the boy just like in a
dream.The smell of the chinese food,the peaceful city he lived if the young man was under a cult,in fact he was still
From a cult. But he missed all those moments when he was younger before all those tests. Still now it was a beautiful
The moment one in which Li was seeing with his own eyes memories from years ago, beautiful memories which only
Lasted for a short time, but which were making the boy to feel happy even it was for a short moment. Hwang asked Li
Observing his partner that he had its eyes closed"What's happening?"Li quickly opened the eyes telling to
Hwang"Nothing this food brings back good old memories. And thanks for the food it's excellent, my name is Li Wen
yours is?"Asking her, since unlike Hwang the boy after the incident wasn't so concentrated to the others, and could
easily forget one's name if he didn't want to hear it or keep it in mind. One minute after eating Li put another
The question"Wanna walk with me and my dragon just for some time? And a second time thanks, you made this day a
Good one, for the first time after weeks."

Hwang had a surprised face when Li even asked that, thinking how and why now Li was better, maybe it wasn't only because of the food that the boy was now better. After the old dragon Thinking of this possibility he started laughing, slowly but still Li heard the demon and asked"What's so funny?"A A little upset that the peace and the quiet atmosphere was quickly installed and quickly interrupted" Hwang whispered toward the left ear"You like her?" Li shouted "Shut up, and told tell her that."Now Li's was improved because of Amaya,but still he felt like a weak fighter,even so now it wasn't so bad like before when he was acting
And behaving like an emo kid or a sad dude.

Even so he had reason to be sad, but it was a period which had to be passed, because Li couldn't remain like this forever. The boy wasn't at his greatest moment, Li's condition wasn't too great and its power wasn't like before but still he had to do something. Li had to fight with the beast which he and Hwang freed, because the boy felt that it was his fault, and it was, for what happened with the beast so even if that was going to kill him he was going to fight with the beast, and try to immobilize it enough so that it could be put back from where it was freed. Looking at the others the boy was wishing that ever to come back to normal, normal was something hard to achieve for Li Wen and normality was something rare because of the cult, he missed the fact that he didn't make any friends, and he also couldn't make friends now after what happened because of him, so Li was starting to feel like an idiot.

Maybe the life of this killer could change into a dream,a long wished dream where he was living happily without the cult and where his problems where long gone, safe and with someone.It wasn't the goal of one's life to die alone,and especialy in battle,but once they will be back at the academy Li could go directly after the beast,and so one life could end in just a second.If he was going just to sacrifice so that the others would be safe Li would do,since the boy killed Magni's and demons,innocent persons who had a bright future and a great life,he was feeling bad for some time,something unsual for him,but it seems that even Li had an heart, if he was feeling guilty about the deaths of those persons and demons.

Amaya

Amaya nodded, “I’m doing pretty fine and dandy! And you?” before Li could answer however it seems his demon interrupted him and pretty much answered Amaya’s previous question. “Oh well I hope you get better!” she smiled kindly at Li.

Her grin widened and she held out her hand for Li to shake, “Yeah I know Li, oh mine. I’m Amaya, Amaya Soiketsu” shaking hands Amaya sat down next to Li if she hadn’t already. “Sure I don’t have much else to do anyway.” and started walking with the pair.

She giggled at Hwangs words but didn’t take them seriously until he continued talking. “I’m glad I could cheer you up Li.”
