There were two weapons of great
power. The black-blooded Scythe, and the light infused sword.The
scythe was made from the black bones of a dragon that died on the
island that never moves, this bone was then heated by the flames of a
blue Phoenix, and crafted by moon Elfs, then cooled in the blood of a
hundred nightshade fairies.The sword was made from a Pegasus horn,
heated by fire of the dragon of the clouds, crafted by light Elfs,
and coolied in the pond of sirens.These two weapons were the most
powerful ever seen, and were only owned by the Elfs, who never used
them. A man seeking power, who's name was lost to history, took the
The Elfs were unable to stop
him. For the man had lost himself to the weapons power. He stayed
hundreds, turning anything that was in his path to dust, destroying
hundreds of villages.
Everyone blamed the Elfs for
making such a weapon in the first place. The king of the Elfs took it
upon himself, to use the sword against the Scythe. Their battle
lasted three days, and three nights.The sword and scythe were
declared too powerful. But with no way to dispose of them, they were
left to hide them.It is said the Scythe was hidden within the caverns
of the trolls, were as the sword is hidden among the Phoenix's
nesting grounds. Both places, are difficult to enter.
There are some who have tried to
find these weapons, all of who were unsuccessful. Yet always came
back with stories.It has been nearly 700,000 years since they were
hidden, but nothing stays hidden forever.
I yawned and looked out the
window of my small room. A jackalope was pearing in. I grinned, and
opened the window, "Looks like my brother left you out again."
She jumped in, and landed on my
bed. I petted her head between her horns, "Have you been a good
girl Rosemary? Cause I'm gonna give you a treat."
I leaned over the foot of my bed
to grab the bag that was hung over it. I opened it up, and took out
sunflower seeds, Rosemary's favorite.She took them gratefully, and
I laughed, then closed my
window, and got out of bed. I got dressed into a pretty adventures
dress, which was brown with a sunflower pattern at the bottom. Then I
put on my brown boots.
I looked in the mirror, and saw
my messy long light brown hair. I took a brush, and brushed out my
hair to it's usual state, of being fluffy and wavy. Now that I
could see my face, I could see my blue eyes, and tan, freckled face.
I grinned, and headed downstairs
after letting Rosemary go down first. I ran down the stairs, and saw
my mother cooking breakfast. I sat at the table with a *poomph*. My
mom handed me a plate of pancakes and bacon. I dug in, and my mom
tapped my head, "Not yet, you have to wait for your siblings."
I groaned, "But they never
get up early!"
My mom laughed, "Well then,
if they don't get up in five minutes, Kassy can have all the bacon!"
She said this loud enough for
the whole house to hear.There was the sound of running footsteps on
the stairs, my mother chucked as my four sisters and six brothers, as
well my Father rushed into the room. My dad walked over to my mom,
He gave her a kiss, then got
some coffee. All my siblings sat at the table, and got food. We all
ate breakfast, then got up to do our daily chores. Rosemary, followed
me as I went over to care for the horses, "Oh hey Rosey, want to
help out? Or are you just going to watch me?"
I started giving the animals
water, and Rosemary watched me as she sat on a barrel. I laughed,
"Just watch it is."
I finished my chores, and
decided to finish my painting I've been working on.I ran over to my
studio, with Rosemary on my heels.My art studio was filled with
plants, lights, dream catchers, wind chimes, and quite a few other
things to help with inspiration.I put on a paint covered apron that
used to be cream colored, and got to work.I sat on a wooden stool,
and looked at my painting of a red dragon in a cave.I smiled, and
added some blues and greens to the walls of the cave.Rosemary tilted
her head and watched me as I painted.
//The moon Elves kingdom
"Sir! The black-blooded
Scythe has been removed from its resting place!"
The tall, long horned Elf stood,
"Are you sure of this?"
"Most definitely sir, the
trolls are in chaos from the people who stole it."
The king frowned, "Do you
of who did it?"
"Unfortunately we do not,
they were wearing hooded capes sir."
The king hummed, "Tell the
other Elfs, they must know of this. I only hope we are not too late."
I finished my painting, and
admired it, "how much mana you think I could get for this
The jackalope tilted it's head,
then thumped it's foot five times. Then it's eat twice."Five
hundred? Maybe if I'm lucky."
I smiled, then picked it up, and
wrapped it in a special material that would prevent ripping or
tearing, "Let's go sell it."
Rosemary hopped up onto my
shoulder, and we headed out.
I walked around my village,
passing by all kinds of people. Among the average people, there were
Neckos (cat/human) knights that come to visit, I even saw a few
dwarfs, I swear I saw a forest Elf turn a corner. My village is
popular for its potions, almost everyone in this village can make
them, including me.I noticed someone who was moving in, he was a boy,
about my age, looked like he worked on machines, I could tell by his
clothes and goggles on his head. I walked up to him, his hair was a
brighter brown than mine, and his eyes were hazel. He turned to me,
"Oh hello there, do you live here?" Then he saw Rosemary,
"Nice jackalope by the way."
I nodded, "My house is
over there." I pointed to it, "And thanks, her name is
He nodded to Rosey, then looked
at the house, and whistled, "That's one big house."
"I got a big family."
He noticed my painting, "What's
I showed him the painting, and
his eyes went wide, "Oh wow, that's amazing!"
I grinned, "I'm selling it
for five hundred."
He hummed, "give me a sec."
He walked into his house, then came back, "I only got 450 to
I frowned, "475."
He laughed, and gave me the
money, I gave him the painting. He tipped his head to me, "Thank
you, I can hang this on my wall. It looks kinda plain right now."
He waved, and walked into his
house with the painting. I smiled, "Now what can I spend this
I looked around, and saw someone
selling paints in colors I didn't have. So I walked over there to buy
them. the man saw me, and smiled, "Why hello there, you want
I nodded, and picked out the
ones I needed. I was debating over a can of mint green and forest
green when I overheard a conversation.
"I heard the black-blooded
Scythe was stolen."
"I thought it was just a
"Don't say it's name, it's
The three men, looked around to
see if anyone heard, then whispered quieter.
The man I was buying paint from
huffed, "Kids these days, spreading rumors."
I hope they aren't true.
I took a can of outright white,
forest green, and ruby red, then headed home. Rosemary's nose was
Once I got back home, I headed
back to my art studio. I put the paints down, and walked over to
where the canvases of all sizes were.
I took one that was 20 x 15 (in)
And put it on my easel.
I hummed, "What should this
Rosemary gave me a red feather,
and I smiled, "Phoenix it is."
I started with the base color of
red, then added a few oranges and yellows.
I smiled as I painted, every
stroke was precise. It had to be perfect.
Rosemary watched me till she got
bored and hopped away.
I gave the background a sunset
to complement the colors of the Phoenix.
I was about half way done, but I
had to stop and let it dry so the next few strokes wouldn't mix.
I got up, and looked outside, I
had been painting all afternoon.
I took off my apron, and walked
out of the studio. Before I got back to the rest of the house, the
guy from before stopped me, "Hiya."
I turned, "Oh hey, nice to
see you again. Need something?"
"Well I was kinda wondering
what that little house was, if you don't mind me asking."
"That's my art studio."
"Oh cool. Would you mind if
I looked at it?"
"Meh, why not? Just don't
He laughed, and I led him over
to it, "what's your name anyway?"
"Oh, right, sorry, I'm
I smiled, "Kassy."
I opened the door.
He looked around, "Oh wow,
reminds me of my bosses workshop back home, only full of art instead
I laughed, "Where are you
"Ever heard of the mechana
"Ya, but I've never been
He smiled, "It's an
inventors dream. Everything is mechanical."
I smiled, "Sounds
interesting, I'll check it out sometime."
He noticed my painting, and
smiled, "This looks good."
"It's not done yet." I
sat down in front of it. It had been a while, so it was mostly dry. I
started painting more.
Tyler sat on a barrel, "Do
you mind if I watch?"
"Not at all."
There was the sound of chains
clicking, and dragging on the floor. A blade the color of obsidian
scraped across the walls. The large Phoenix within the Lava raised
its head, "Who's there?" The man came into view, his eyes
bloodshot, his hair messy, his teeth in a wicked grin, "Hello
firebird, I'd say it was about time you died for real."
had finished the painting, and
looked back at Tyler to see he had fallen asleep, with Rosemary in
his lap. I smiled, and poked him, "Hey, wake up."
He blinked open one eye, "What?"
I showed him the Phoenix, and he
grinned, "Wow, that's amazing."
He got up, and Rosemary woke up,
then jumped off. I stood back, "How much do you think it will go
"I'd say about eight to
"That much? It's not that
"Ya it is, professional
artists aren't even this good."
I laughed, "If you say so."
The ground rumbled. Tyler
steadied himself, "What was that?"
"Probably came from
"The active Volcano!?"
"It hasn't gone off in
years because of the Phoenix that lives there, I'm sure it's
Tyler looked doubtful, but
didn't say anything more.
I woke up the next morning, with
Rosemary asleep on my feet. I smiled, "Well, since it is now
against the law for me to move, I'll stay right here." I
Yesterday was pretty cool, I
became friends with Tyler pretty quickly, and I finished that new
painting as well. I usually never finish a painting that fast. Today
was when I was going to sell it. I frowned at Rosemary, and tried to
gently wake her, "Hey, I need to get up, can you move please?"
She stretched and yawned. I
grinned, "Kay good, now I get u-"
She walked up to me and layed
down again in my stomach. I sighed, "Rosey...." Then I
"Welp, guess I'll have to
do this the hard way."
I picked her up, and she kicked
the air in protest.I put her on the ground and I got up. She cleaned
her paws as I walked out the door of my room. It was early, so not
even my mother was up yet. I took some bread, and cheese. Then headed
out. I ate as I walked over to my art studio. Some people say I spend
to much time painting, but hey, I get money for it. I smiled, and set
my bread and cheese down. I was about to get another canvas, when my
easel fell. I walked over to it, and saw a leg was broken, "What!?
I looked at it, and found bite
marks, "Stupid mouse." I growled.
An easel is expensive,
especially if you want a good one. Time to break out the savings jar.
It started raining while we
waited. Tyler opened up an umbrella. Then he grabbed my shoulder, and
pulled me close, "Now we won't get rained on." He smiled. I
didn't mind it much, but I wish he had asked first. I watched the
rain fall, then heard footsteps. I turned my head to a black wolf
with green eyes, and a green stripe of fur on its back from its head
The wolf sat down next to us,
and also waited. I watched it, "Hi little guy."
It looked up, "Hello big
I gasped, "Oh, sorry."
He laughed, "It's fine. The

Tyler." Tyler looked over, and grinned, "Oh wow, a
I tilted my head, "Werewolf?"
