Journey for the GemsAkima is a princess of a city next to the ocean named Azul. Every morning she would have her servants help her get dressed. Then she would go over dispatches from the outer cantons. After that she would have breakfast and teach at one of the local schools until lunch. One of her favorite things to do was read to the children at the library. Dinner came soon after school. After dinner she would have music lessons. Then she would go into her family’s library and read. This was the average day for Akima. Soon this common day was to become a memorable one.
A man in a dark hooded cloak quickly scaled the outside of a tower; a tower which he knew at the top contained one of the five most powerful objects on the island, the Water Gem. He peered through the window to make sure no one was in the room. After carefully searching the area, he went into the sacred room. In the middle of the room was a small table; on it was a blue gem about the size of a clenched fist
Love, Hate, and War~CH3What was going on? She was just sitting on the roof, minding her own business, when she felt something uncomfortably hot on her chest. Kaylynn looked down at the source of heat to find it came from the silver pendant on her necklace, and it was glowing. What the hell? The glow and heat started to spread out over her chest. What the hell! Kaylynn jumped up to do... well something, her skin was glowing and burning for crying out loud! Her foot slipped on the roofing tile and she began to fall towards the hard, unforgiving pavement. She screamed and grabbed for the roof's edge, but found it to have disappeared, along with the rest of the world. Oh man, I'm dead aren't I? I hit the ground and I'm dead! Well, it wasn't like her guess didn't make sense; she was floating in a golden-yellow void of light, all alone.
But this wasn't right, if she were dead wouldn't her mom be here? And why did her body still feel like it was on fire? Kaylynn ha
Love, Hate, and War~CH2Lhikan stood in front of the semicircle of matoran, a few curious looks pointed towards him and the collection of stones in his arms. "Toa stones?" Whenua scratched his Kanohi. Vakama's eyes widened, "you don't really mean..." He felt like he was about to faint, was Lhikan thinking what he thought he was thinking? "Yes, Vakama, that is what I mean," Lhikan gave a smile, Vakama never gave himself enough credit. "Toa-hero powers, woohoo!" Matau jumped, thrusting a hand into the air.
Lhikan walked over to the suva and placed the stones according to the markings that were carved onto the surface; each representing one of the six elements of the metrus. "Step in front of your metru's symbol." The matoran followed their Toa's instructions, not entirely sure of what to do. "And fear not, the Great Spirit shall guide you in ways you could not imagine," almost as if Lhikan's words were the cue, the stones began to glow, beams of energy stretching out to engulf the matoran. There were gasps as t
Love, Hate, and War~CH1Today was the day, I was now officially eighteen! So exited was I, that I had woken up just before sunrise to make sure I was completely ready. I used my favorite shampoo, rosemary and mint scented, and gave my hair a fresh coat of blue dye. When I dressed, I wore my favorite pair of ocean blue cargo pants, a deep forest green long sleeve, and slightly oversized black boots. I brushed my thigh length hair and put it into a braid. Even though I'm no fan of makeup, I went to the trouble to put on a layer of smokey eyeshadow, highlighting my emerald eyes; I even went so far as to scrub a small amount of concealer over those pesky freckles that dusted my nose and upper cheeks. When I was as ready as one could be, I went over to Gran's room.
I opened the door ajar, to make sure she was awake, before just barging in; and sure enough, she was sitting in front of her vanity mirror, brushing her silver hair. "Good morning Gran!" I said in a singsong voice. "Oh, good morning Kaylynn," she placed
Child of a Monster~CH1La la la la la la la la la la la la
He was pacing in front of the medical room, clearly anxious. It had been a long time, when would it be over? Mutran groaned and rubbed the back of his head. I never meant to knock her up, how was I supposed to know she wasn't using any birth control?
La la la, la la la la la la la la la la,
Yes, Mutran had found one of the nicer looking females of the species, and the two had a rather wonderful night together. The problems started when she found him around a month ago to tell him he was a father. At first he had denied it, naturally, saying it had been a while and could be any ones child. But eventually he came around and accepted it as it was.
La la la, la la la la la la la la la la,
Now there weren't all that many Makuta, though the reason for that was painfully obvious, so abortion wasn't an option. But the female Makuta refused to keep and raise the child. So the two came upon a compromise; she would have the chil
Amnesia~CH1Knock knock knock... Knock knock KNOCK... "Damn it all, Matoro, we're going to be late!" Nuju only got more of his translator's soft snores. Sighing in exasperation, the Turaga of Ice reached into his robes and pulled out the spare key. That boy is so lucky I let him off as easily as I do on this kind of thing.
In truth, Nuju was more concerned about his boy's health than if they were late. Ever since Matau pulled that stupid "joke" yesterday Matoro had been feeling a bit dizzy; and he had a right to be, he was hit in the head with a pail of swampy mud!
Sure, Matau had apologized profusely, claiming that the mud was supposed to pouron the victim, not the whole pail fall on the unfortunate one's head. He had even personally escorted the translator to the local healer, a death-glaring Nuju on his heels. The healers had said Matoro had a mild concussion. Nuju grimaced, remembering how Matoro had vomited on the healer's floor and the diz
