RoA Round 2 - 10 END
A flurry of scales and fur rushed downwards as the cold air blew passed Echo and Viktor. In a swift movement, Viktor pulled out a match, struck it against his leg, and spread a blaze underneath the chimera's wings, frantically trying to lift the two. He held on tightly to Echo's neck as she climbed higher and rose above the island holding the portal. "What...?" Echo looked around, somewhat in a daze. "Where....?"
I can't believed that worked... again! Viktor began releasing the magic from the fire to bring them back down slowly. But suddenly, another lightning bolt struck through the sky, causing Echo to recoil. Yelling, she twisted around in a distorted fashion and Viktor fell from her back. "Gah!" In a quick motion, he bit down on Echo's tail. The event disturbed Viktor's magic on the flames and they vanished. Echo vigorously began flapping upwards, but without the heat under her wings, they quickly began falling towards the ground. As Echo tried to rig
RoA Round 2 - 9
Ten months ago
Viktor sat at the edge of a cliff watching a hawk rise above the trees in the afternoon sun of Daggerthorn. The hawk barely lifted a feather as it rose higher and higher until it was a small speck in the sky. "Watch'a lookin' at bro?" A cheery voice rang out behind Viktor. He turned around to see his sister, Anjeval, trot up to him, her wing charm swaying with every step. "Oh hey, nothin' much. Just watchin' Oracle."*
"Ooo, I love watching him! Make some room I wanna see!"
The two, young, wolf-dogs sat side-by-side as Oracle rose above the clouds and out of view. Viktor looked down at the forest and asked Anjeval, "Hey, you can fly right? How do you get so high without even flapping?"
"Aww, that's easy. We let the soil lift us!"
"Uh... huh?" Viktor was obviously confused. "How in the world does that work?"
"Ummm... Oh! Remember the hot-air balloons back on Earth?" Viktor nodded. "Well it's just like those, but instead of having the fire under the ballo
RoA Round 2 - 8
Viktor began running towards the portal when another bolt of lightning struck. "Yaaah!" Viktor heard Echo's scream as the thunder roared through the sky. Just a little closer... What the-? Viktor stopped just as he was about to reach the edge of the floating island. The fog, now a fine mist, revealed the small island that held the portal and the deep orange sunset that overpowered the portal's blue hue. But what Viktor realized, made him take a step back. "There's no rope!" The rope joining the two islands seemed to have been severed by a bolt of lightning. Viktor looked over the cliff and saw the burnt end of the rope. "What the heck! How is that possible?" He started pacing, quickly trying to figure out a solution, when he had an idea. It's too far to jump, but Echo can fly. I know she doesn't wanna fight, but she might be my only way outta here... Viktor stood absolutely still, closed his eyes, turned his head toward the thickly cloud
RoA Round 2 - 7
Viktor woke up to the sound of the creature's voice. "...can't see through the fog.... I don't know if he's dead..... There's no blood.... And the disk?..." Viktor started to get up, but before he could to collect his thoughts, the large, whip-like tail came rushing at him again.
"Aah!" He quickly jumped over the massive tail and reached for another match. Striking it on the ground, he yelled, "What's your problem? You coulda killed me!" The green creature turned around looked at Viktor with large brown eyes that glittered from the light of the fire.
"You- are alright? I didn't kill you?" It said.
"I'm.. I'm fine." Viktor was still a little dazed but nothing he couldn't handle. "Who are you?"
"I... I'm Echo. Like a canyon.... I like them... So big..."
"... Oh... kay... Well Echo, I'm Viktor. You might be a girl, but don't go expecting me to go easy on you. If I have to fight, I will."
"No... no fighting! I... I don't like to... it hurts-" Suddenly from out of no
Dreams of realityA pair of eyes;
Open and stare through the lights,
Into the darkness of doom.
And yet they smile,
Yet they smile.
A drop of tear;
Seeps through the garden of death;
Falls to the mortal soil.
Dreams and desires will blend again,
To render the roses alive.
I am floating through a vision.
Like ripples, floating through the pond of life.
Can reality be so real?
Let me drown again,
Into the silence of familiar noise.
As I wander through the lanes of reason and passion.
The flame of hope burns bright,
Drenched in the colors of freedom.
So let my dreams unravel my soul,
As darkness fades away;
And let mortality draw me closer to destiny.
As these pair of eyes,
Open to stare through the lights again.
Is this reality?
Can reality be so real?
Time passes by, as the eyes keep staring;
Staring at the distant lights;
Staring beyond the distant skies.
What do they see?
What do they long?
What do they desire?
Then the skies will break down;
White lightning striking the dreamy clouds.
Moments will tur
