    After a long journey from Tiago, Aella was resting next to a house in Waise. She takes a deep breath of the cold, crisp morning air and smiles slightly. She smells something sweet and pleasurable nearby; the familiar scent of a flower. The scent leads her attention to where it stands. The flower seems almost lonely as it reaches to the sky from a crack between cobblestone nearby. With her bow gripped close to her side, she stoops low to absorb more of its sweet scent. She caresses its petals with tip of her finger while she continues to survey the area.


    The town is like she expected from the rumors she'd heard. There wasn't anybody in sight. Most of the houses appeared empty and abandoned, but one close to where she was had the door left wide open. The town of Waise seemed oddly calm and silent, eerily so.

    While Trixie is muttering and attempting to reason with herself, baby Revel yawns a couple of times, finishes his beer, then fashions his lips over the neck of the bottle to make some hollow sounding tunes. The music sounds quite nice, if not a little haunting. When Trixie finally asks for his advice, he stops blowing into the spout and tosses the bottle carelessly over his shoulder again. This time the bottle appears in space in the year 2063 and topples into the opening of a propulsion system to a newly designed space craft, causing said propulsion system to malfunction... and ultimately sets human space travel back another 50 years.

    "Sometimes people just aren't ready for new things." Revel looks at Trixie, removing the glasses from his face. "Take it from me, as the old expression goes - and for a very good reason - knowledge is one of the greatest powers of all. Why not try and be at least a little smart about your decision here today. After all, you don't want to mess this up. I'm not going to make any decisions for you, but you're running out of time, I have places to go and people to humiliate, so hurry up and make a decision. Here, I'll make it easy on you, as I can see you're having a great deal of trouble with this.... Just imagine being someone. Give them a name, imagine what their personality is like, what their interests are, what talents they have and what they find important in life. See them in your minds eye where words could never be enough to describe, and I'll do the rest."






    Trixie sighs at what Revel says, she sits down on...whatever she is standing on. She starts thinking about who she would like to be. She didn’t want to be anything like what she was. She wanted to be free, not a person who always worried about what other people thought of her. She wouldn’t care about power or ego like Trixie did either. All of those things didn’t help Trixie in the past anyway. She imagines a girl with no ties to her previous life in any way….

    …This girl would be 17. Old enough to make her own decisions, but she would hardly have a care in the world. She’s attractive, because why not? But she wouldn’t even care about that either…. Her name would be Aella, and would be somewhat short and petite, but stronger than any other girl her size and is very agile. Her eyes are a light green and have excellent sight. She wears modest clothing, a little dull though. Perhaps like a man with trousers, a top and boots. Her hair is a light brown. Not too long, but it’s a little bit messy and flows around wherever, just like her personality…. Aella would go where she pleases and do what she wants whenever she wants to. She would be a free spirit. Just like the wind…. Speaking of the wind, that would be her unique power as well, not fire, ice, dark magic or anything like that, aella would be an air mage instead. Yes, she would have the ability to control the wind, and perhaps even other parts of the weather at times.

    Now Trixie starts thinking about Aella’s history. Where did she come from? What sort of life did she have? Trixie imagines she would be from a small town named Tiago... far to the South of Waise. Aella grew up there, but most of her childhood was rather unimportant. Her parents encouraged the young Aella to learn Air magic, as they were air mages themselves. She accepted and she eventually mastered their teachings. But for many years she had no idea of the great power she was really capable of. This all changed when she was 15. Whilst she was leaving school one day, a beastly bear-like creature attacked the town, and this was the event when Aella realized how truly powerful she was, even greater than that of her parents or anyone else in her town had ever known. That was the day she was crowned a hero to her people.

    When the monster entered town the villagers ran from it, and many were caught by surprise being injured and died. But Aella didn’t run. She confronted it, because the love for her people filled her with unexpected courage and she grew angrier and angrier upon each passing moment the beast was alive. She automatically focused on the teachings of her parents and her anger somehow made her realize much more than she had been taught. A new level of her power was unlocked.... Miraculously, the beast soon collapsed, Dead. Aella had channelled her energy and stole the air from inside it, causing the beast to suffocate.

    After this incident, she was called a hero by the many villagers. She impressed her parents, she impressed everyone. For heroic deed, a green bow, forged from refined Viridium (A green metallic rock found in the mountains near her village) was awarded to her. The Viridium was light, durable and made an excellent material for a bow. The arrows were also crafted from Viridium, and some of these arrows were tipped with Viridium Crystal, a special crystal that is naturally formed in the same way that diamonds are formed from coal, and found naturally in the mountains around the village as well. Since Viridium Crystals were said to hold their own magical properties, Aella separated them from the other arrows and reserved them for special occasions. (the special magic of these arrows will be revealed later)

    It wasn’t difficult for Aella to learn how to use the bow, it was like second nature to her. Over the next two years she became a master of archery. It also turned out to be an excellent tool to use in conjunction with her Air Mage abilities - Naturally these air magical abilities could assist many things such as levitation, helping her move and run at amazing speeds, remove the air from lungs or larger spaces, and slow her descent when falling from dangerous heights - but she could also use the same air manipulation to alter the course of an arrow, speed up its velocity, slow it down, and even bend its path around corners.

    Because Aella is small, the bow was practically the same length as her and she almost always carried it in one hand, not on her back. It was more than just a bow. It became a multipurpose tool; a staff to conduct air spells (even though she didn’t need it to do that), a melee weapon for close combat, a cane to help in hiking and mountaineering, even while walking she would walk the bow at her side in one hand as a companion, and while standing still she would hold it like a native holds a spear to lean on with one foot resting on the knee of the other leg. For all intents and purposes, the bow became an extension of her body.

    While Trixie imagines the existence of this person and all her special gifts, she also knows that in the end Aella is human and has weakness like any other human; she can be injured, she can bleed and she can die. But Trixie also knows because Aella is only young, she still has a lot to learn about herself and her magic abilies…


    She then looked to Revel, wondering what he thought of this.

    Hannah begins taking apart the bed, mainly going after the legs of it though. Upon removing the legs, she tries to stab the legs through the wall, before going further with her plan.

    "Steady on horsey, don't go getting your nickers in a knot." Revel burps and takes another swig. "I didn't actually have anything to do with your pointless death. But don't worry your little head, your death wasn't completely in vain, you've made a certain sexual predator extremely happy." He finishes off his beer and flings the bottle carelessly over his shoulder. It falls out of the sky and lands on the head of an Eskimo two hundred year in the future, killing him instantly. "Still, since I feel somehow responsible for you after turning you human, I have a little question that you might find interest in answering... that is, of course, if having a second shot at life interests you."

    Another beer appears in hand and he offers it to Trixie, holding it out to her. Before she can respond, he says, "Didn't think so" and takes back the offer, twists open the cap and starts drinking again.

    "Here's the thing! Since my only son has actually defeated his own mental capacity and learnt something worthwhile today, I feel like celebrating by being a little generous with your sorry excuse for an existence. I guess you could say your death was perfectly timed. So tell me...." He takes another sip. "If you were given the opportunity to returned to the land of the living, who would you be? - Now, before you answer, I'm gonna make a couple of conditions very clear. For starters, you will have no memory of your previous life, me, or anything that's happening right now. Secondly, you will never again be given another chance at a new life, so make your decision count. Maybe pick someone intelligent? So go ahead, let your imagination run wild! Who or what would you like to be? Really, anyone at all. Just tell me and I'll do it."




    Trixie was somewhat flattered by what he did, and what he said though she rose an eyebrow at the offer he made. She mainly ignored what she viewed as 'pointless banter and antics' by what Revel did, she stopped her pacing. "A second chance at life? Anything Trixie wants to be..." she muttered to herself. "For Starters Trixie would like to live a long, long life. Immortal perhaps. Theres those others....Annie...the order and that other one...whoever they are. They are powerful right? Being a magiciation...for the majority of Trixie's life...didn't show power at all...it showed illusion and weakness...not real magic." she sighed and paced around once more. "Instead of showing off, Trixie could be a hero....Powerful hero...someone young, girl obviously. It would be more fun to discover Trixie's powers as she goes along..." she looked down and sighed again, stopping her pacing and looking him in the eye. "Tell me of what you know of the powerful ones. I want to be like them. Instead of being show offy, I could be sneaky...heroic...young...mysterious...smart..." she said firmly, dropping her 3rd person.

    Trixie's screams are subdued by an infant crying nearby. If she turns towards the sound of the crying baby, she would see just that, a two month old baby wearing a purple nappy, mirrored sunglasses, holding a bottle of beer in his hand and perched in a babies highchair. The baby slams the beer down on the folding table of the chair so hard that a spout of beer spikes out from its top.

    "Wah-wah-wah!" The baby mocks Trixie with a sarcastic cry. "Why you gotta come up here in my house and act all sulky - only babies sulk! You should probably just accept your fate. I mean, death has gotta be better than living out a life as a former pony that never really got any satisfaction."

    The baby takes a sip of beer then places it back down gently, tipping his head forward to look over his sunglasses at Trixie.

    "But seriously," The baby speaks in the familiar voice of the man, Revel, who Trixie had met at dinner; "I was a pony once.... True story." He props up his glasses again and rests back casually in his highchair. "Sure, I was just playing a prank on some horse I knew, but that doesn't negate the fact...." He takes another sip of beer. "To answer your question, in case it isn't obvious yet, yes, you are certainly dead. In fact, I was tempted to let you mosey on up to heaven and meet the big daddy, but being the one that freed you from your pony form, I felt strangely obligated to bring you on in and torment you for a while. After all, I turned you into a human less than a day ago and already you disappoint me with your death. What the hell is wrong with you?"


    Trixie would normally be humored by things like this however she approached the baby, or rather: Revel, with a slightly angry glare. "Whats wrong with Trixie? Whats wrong with you?? You simply toy around with everything you see and all you do is fool around! Reminds Trixie of someone, but thats besides the point. Its not Trixie's fault she died!" she shouted and paced around for a few seconds. "You know what? Fine then. Trixie knows she is powerless against....gods and all that...she accepts her fate!" she snickered.

    After these 'events' had occurred, Trixie found herself going down a tunnel of light. She looked around to see nothing but light around her, she was floating as she went. Sooner or later she found herself floating in a void of nothing but purple, purple everywhere. The last thing she remembered was getting thrown against a wall when some sort of explosion happened. It started to occur to her, was she dead? She looked around to see nothing but purple. "Is...Trixie...DEAD??!" she shrieked out into the purple void.

    Sune starts whispering, just in case.
    "So then, what is the plan? Do we run?"

    There isn't much around that could be used as a weapon, except for a small wooden stool



    Hannah enters the room Beth is in. It's a small bedroom, with a lone, dusty bed in it. There is one, barred window through which one could look out into the darkness outside.



    Hannah sighs upon seeing this, she feels a sense of hope though she is frustrated there are bars. She looks over to Beth, who is on the bed and asks him to get off. She says she has an idea.

    Heading out of the room and up the staircase, Hannah arrives in a small room. In it, another staircase leading further upstairs and an already opened, empty closet.


    Hannah looks around this room, to see if there is anything useful about, before heading up the stairs.

    Unfortunately, the closet is empty too, save for a single old note that says "I was here". There are no hatches either, and all she finds is cobweb and dust.




    Sunset departs this house, as she left this house she notices that it is morning outside, she takes a deep breathe and looks side to side for a second, before she goes off to search another house. Taking her time as she does so.

    Eventually, Hannah gets to the key. It's a simple, brass key. What would it open?


    After grabbing the key, and looking at it for a few seconds she searches the room around her for important items, if none are found, she marches up the stairs, much like Beth did.

    Judging by how well the key is hidden behind the boxes, it seems like she'll have to spend some time moving them out of the way if she wants to get to it. Time to get to work, then?


    Hannah moves boxes out of the way so she can get to the key.

    Beth shakes the wooden box at her. Just as the sound of it is starting to become bothersome, he turns around and leaves. He doesn't check to see if she follows as he marches out the door and up the stairs, slinging the other strap of the backpack-like device onto his shoulder as he climbs.



    Quote from Darthrafael»


    She searches and searches and searches, but finds nothing. The, something. On the floor, just out of reach behind the towaring pillar of cardboard boxes, she spots a key. It'll take her a bit to get to it though, and her companion seems to impatient to wait for her any longer.



    Hannah looked to Beth when he shook the wooden box at her. She did a slight frown at her companion's lack of patience, she didn't follow him just yet. Upon spotting the key she searches for a way to get to it.

    Most boxes are empty or contain only items of very little practical use.


    Despite this, she keeps searching through them. She glanced to Beth for a second before continuing.

    The box Hannah opens is empty, while the one Beth opens contains a small, wooden box with no discernible lid or other openings. Though, when the box is moved, it sounds like there's an item inside of it.


    Hannah moves onto search through the other boxes around her, opening them up and seeing what is inside of them.

    They enter a small, simple storage room, filled with cardboard boxes stacked to far above their own height.




    Hannah looked about for a second, looking at the many boxes stacked up around them, with a rather intrigued look on her face. "There might be useful things in these boxes." She approached one of the boxes and started opening it up, looking inside once it was opened.
