Hello everyone. I never thought I would do this, but I have a brand new story up my sleeve. So…What is gauntlet? Just keep reading and find out. Decode9 Over and Out.
"It is hard to tell if this place was once a thriving forest. Even if it is not a real one." A women said to herself. She had her eyes closed. She looked as if she was in her mid 20's, but in all truth she is only 17. She was wearing armor that was segmented. A white and gold chest plate covered her chest.
She wore pure white gloves that went half way up her arm. One of them was segmented and had a blue jewel imbedded in it. The boots were also white and gold and went all the way up her legs almost the the chest plate. Her ankle length alburn red hair flowed like a cape behind her.
She was also holding two large curved swords. The inner part of the blade was white, while the edges were gold. She finally opened her dark magenta eyes and looked behind her "So you finally came…Chaos." The girl said plainly.
What appeared in front of her was someone else in full pitch black armor. His face could not even be seen. He held two swords as well, but both were different. One was like a katana and covered in black smoke, and whenever it touched the ground it would drain the color from everything around and it would wither and die.
The other blade was another katana, and this one was covered in intense purple flames. The girl could feel the heat even from just being over 30 feet apart. The man looked around, and apparently smiling if he could be seen through his helmet.
"You see my work Divine? Imagine what it will be like once I find Star Ray." Chaos said proudly. She looked around for the first time in a while.
The entire place could be mistaken for a battle field. The grass was brown and dieing, the trees were pitch black because of fire, and even parts of the ground itself was split open. The girl gritted her teeth.
"You…Will never find Star Ray and it's owner!" Divine said charging with both swords "Not while I live!" She screamed and slashed at him. He blocked with the swords.
They started exchanging blows. He swung at her head and actually hit her. Blood trickled from her head "This is no longer just a game Divine. If you intend to beat me then you must do better." Chaos said as Divine got up holding her head and the blood disappeared
("He's right…I have no choice…Sorry Rick. I know I said that I wouldn't do this, but it has to be done.") She thought and threw one of her swords towards Chaos who just responded by looking at her.
"I say we finish this with honor. Or do you want to use one of your under hand tactics to win?" She asked calmly. Chaos's weapons vanished and he picked up Divine's sword. Both swords glowed with a golden aura
"You are the first to challenge me like this. It will be the last time you ever pick up you gauntlet and sword to fight me!" He said and Divine just narrowed her eyes.
Both ran at each other and when they were close slashed and landed backways from each other holding the swords.
Divine cringed and fell to one knee while Chaos laughed "Hahahahahaha! Victory is mine Divine…huh? Gah" He said and then looked at his hand. It was vanishing
"No" Chaos screamed and looked at Divine who smirked "You little. What did you do?" Chaos demanded walking over to the fallen girl who was now chuckling "If you are wondering. It's what we had decided to use to put you away for good. Enjoy being sealed Chaos. Oh and I will be joining you." Divine said smirking again
"No…NO NO NO NO!" Chaos screamed as he and Divine were vanishing faster now.
Divine thought her last thoughts ("I did it everyone…Mom and Dad…My siblings Aero, Strike…and little sister Zero. I did it.") Divine thought as she vanished
"I'LL BE BACK" Chaos screamed as he and Divine vanished at last
Ages ago a star fell from the sky. The people who found the star saw the most startling site. The star that had impacted was different that any other that had landed before. The upper part did not look like it had even been part of the impact. It had clear crystals that when the light shone through it the light would reflect different colors. The other side that had taken the impact was barren of the beauty of the light side, but all the strongest materials had survived the impact. The star was taken and the two sides split and melded into two swords. They were given as gifts to the children of the king. The crystal like sword was given to the daughter who gave the sword the name Star Ray. The general son was given the sword made of the strongest materials from the star. He named it Star Rave. Both swords became known as the Legacy Swords. But as tales of the swords strength grew so did other kingdoms desire for the blades. War's were fought over the swords, and soon the kingdom of Albright fell, but the swords were never found. It is said before the kingdom was invaded the kings daughter destroyed the Legacy Blades, and all that remained was two crystal size jewels. Where those jewels are…only time will tell.
