To Keep From Getting Burned

To Keep From Getting Burned

0 INK

In a world where magic is hunted and people are killed just for being born wrong, it is up to the emboldened few to hide and protect the hunted many.

2,894 readers have visited To Keep From Getting Burned since Breyerluv created it.

Introduction

For years, the fear of magic and those that stem from it had been brewing in The United Republic of America. Witch hunts were in the past; none of us ever thought disdain would turn to hate. No one thought that it would put all of us in danger, but, then it all happened so suddenly.

The Order of the Storm, a group particularly vocal in the magic hate, got its greasy grip in the government. Within months, the Arcane Containment Unit, ACU, attacked the country's most booming magic market just outside of Birmington, where the feud between the magical and the mundane burned at its hottest. It was a massacre. Those that weren't killed on sight, were arrested and sent to "Magical Rehabilitation Camps" or publicly executed. Within a week, magic was outlawed.

Two years since the massacre, The Shadow Fighters, a magic extremist group, has been causing trouble around the URA and once again raising the tension. While they cause a ruckus on the surface, those of us in The Dragon Order work behind the scenes, fighting when we can but always putting the safety of others first. While we're able to do what we can, it is never enough. Will we ever live freely again?

Kyra couldn't help but laugh at her roommate. She was reminded of when she found out she'd be going on her first mission- the excitement, the hard work, meeting her old squad for the first time. Her grin faltered slightly. The memories of her old squad and all that had happened... She blinked and took a deep breath, clearing away the memories.
"I've heard of some squads that have nicknames, but they're not the type of nicknames you'd want," she replied to Addie, bemused by the question. "I'm glad you're excited! This isn't super hard, so it should be fun!"

Ryan thought back to the time he was on his first mission...by himself. He realized he had changed significantly since that mission years ago, for he was much less confident and alert. Although the current mission was not nearly as difficult as the previous one, he still hoped that he wouldn't end up coming close to failure this time.

Ryan replied to Ahmir's question, "I'm a magic scientist. I study medicine and potions. I know they sound contractionary but that's what I specialize in."
"Also, my mistake was getting myself into dangerous situations without preparing myself. I'm still slightly scarred from my first mission a while back."
As he left the training room, Ryan decided to deepen his weapon knowledge. He approached Ahmir and asked him: "Do you know much about swords or other melee weapons? You seem like one to know your blades."

Ahmir knew not to press further into the first mission, and decided to answer his last question.

"Well, I am an Assassin of the Dragon Order." He stated as he nonchalantly unsheathed his long-sword from the long-sword scabbard on his back. Due to being a low-class Assassin, his weapon was not exactly enchanted or even designed in a special way. Nonetheless, Ahmir's Longsword was nearly void of dirt and dust.

"So, the answer is yes. I do know a thing or two about Blades and Melee weapons. Why do you ask?" He asked as he proceeded to fetch a red cloth off of a table-top. The Assassin proceeded to clean off his weapon, though did focus on Ryan.

"Nicknames? I'd love to make one! But we should get to know each other, then the nickname will come. For now, let's concentrate on the first mission objective." Said Aiden, trying to hide his eagerness as on what is to come. "This is the first time in awhile getting out of that building!"

"My mistake huh…" Aiden later replied, "Well I love experimenting with ingredients, but when I mixed Bronic mushrooms in a squikk beak stew, It turned my skin blue and I sounded like a high pitched fae which took 10 days to wear off. Nobody could take me seriously for a while. Even afterward, many of the patients became wary of my potions afterward…"

"If I had a nickname, I'd want to be called something cool.. Like Spice Blade or something rad like that. I want to sound like a badass Marvel character or something. I mean, I guess the difference is that they are actually good at what they do in order to get a cool name like Storm or Wolverine Me on the other hand..." Addie laughed awkwardly as she shyly rubbed her arm. She knew she wasn't the most talented and that she was an accident waiting to happen. 'That must be why they have me with such impressive, trained people for my first mission. Hard to go wrong if you're taking a backseat,' Addie thought to herself.
