Enmity's End: Peacemaking - Chapter Seven

Image
  Chapter Seven “A lightning bolt !?” Ignatius and I exclaimed at the same time. “ Yes. It’s your main offensive weapon.” Herobrine explained. I considered this for a moment. I had never heard someone call a lightning bolt a weapon before. Then I shrugged. It was about as normal as everything else that had been going on for the past few days. “ Alright. Go again.” Herobrine said after making another target materialize where the old one used to be. I focused again, but this time I didn’t close my eyes. I could tell they glowed white and another lightning bolt came down and destroyed that target as well. This time I didn’t fall or get pushed back nearly as far. I stood my ground as well as I could, but I was still pushed back about a foot from where I was originally. “ Much improved, Orva. Come with me, both of you. We’ll need Ignatius to try it next.” Herobrine congratulated me. We both followed him to another clearing. There was some kind of stone structure in the middle of it

  Chapter Six After we had exchanged stories, we just kind of waited for a little. Then I broke the silence. “I don’t know about you two, but I’m heading back to my cabin. It’ll get dark soon.” “Yeah… you’re right. I should be getting back to my cave as well.” Ignatius responded. “Come on, Sprout. Let’s go.” I said. “Yeah… alright.” He replied. We all got up and walked out of the main hall. At the fork in the path, we waved goodbye to Ignatius as we went in opposite directions. Once we reached the cabin, we found a second bed in it. I wasn’t surprised. I was getting used to this sort of thing. I put my staff on its rack and sat down on my bed. "...Orva?" Takeo asked. “Hm?” I replied, looking up at him. “Why do you want to stay here? What makes you think you can trust them?” He inquired. “Takeo… you just listened to Ignatius’ whole backstory, and you’re still wondering whether or not we can trust him?” I asked. “No… not him. Herobrine and Eclipse. Herobrine i

I’ll be in the trees watching.” I nodded. “Alright. You ready, Ignatius?” I asked. Enmity's End: Peacemaking “Yes, are you?” He replied “Of course.” We sparred for a while until Herobrine called for a break. “ Good work, you two. I can see you’ve had practice before.” He said. “Yes, I’ve trained with my twin brother before.” I replied. “And I’ve trained with my father.” Ignatius added. “ I see. You’ll go again after you’ve had something to eat.” Herobrine said. He handed us both some milk and bread. Once we were finished, we got up. Herobrine went back into the forest, and Ignatius and I resumed our offensive positions. We circled each other for a little, then Ignatius decided to make the first move. He jumped up and was about to strike when a figure came out of the woods. T

  Enmity’s End: Peacemaking  Chapter Four When I woke up the next morning, I got myself ready. It didn’t take much. All I really needed to do was brush my hair a little and sling my staff over my back. Then I headed out. It was early morning, and for a little I just watched the fog outside of my cabin. Then I saw Herobrine in the distance. He was walking now. In reality, I saw his eyes before the rest of him. They glow. When he got to my cabin, he talked in my head again. Enmity's End: Peacemaking “Ignatius is already waiting at the main hall. Let’s go, we have much to discuss.” He said. I nodded. He walked off, and I followed him. We soon arrived. Ignatius was sitting at one of the tables. I walked over  to him. “So… maybe we should start by exchanging stories. We clearly don’t know much about each other.” He said. “Yeah… Well, I’m a Moyo-Jiwe. When we are born, our Cornerstones materialize beside us. The elders put our Cornerstone in a magical box that only we can open,

     Enmity’s End: Peacemaking Chapter Three You have no idea how great it felt to fly through the air for the first time. We went over hills and forests, and eventually over an ocean, at a speed faster than any travel means I had used before. I might seem na├»ve to trust dragon who had just come after I had said something I didn’t understand, but something about her made me feel… safe. Somehow, I knew she was trustworthy. When we got to the other side of the ocean, I spotted another dragon. Mine was black with purple eyes, but this one was golden. Someone was riding him. It wasn’t a Moyo-Jiwe. I had never seen someone of his kind before. He looked at me and yelled Enmity's End: Peacemaking “Are you an Enderknight!?” I had no idea what that was. “I don’t think so.” I yelled back. Suddenly both dragons swooped into a dive. I was startled, so I held on very tightly. I really didn’t need to. Both dragons landed safely. “So, what’s your name?” The boy asked. I wasn’t sure what he

  Enmity’s End: Peacemaking Chapter Two The next day came and went. Today was our rite of passage. It seemed like everyone from the village was there! My brother Takeo would go first, since he was the older twin. One of the village elders came out to begin the ceremony. Enmity's End: Peacemaking “Takeo, you are at one of the many crossroads of your life. You now have a choice. Are you ready to reveal your cornerstone?” He said, in the way he did with all rites of passage. “Yes, Elder Clecious. I am ready.” Takeo said in reply. The magical box with his Cornerstone was brought out. He took it, and opened it slowly. It levitated out of the box, and began glowing. It glowed yellow, then red, then green, then blue. It continually cycled through the colors, finally settling on… green! The Cornerstone of protection! Takeo took it out of the air and presented it to the crowd. They cheered. He had been right! Now it was my turn. Elder Clecious repeated what he had said to Takeo, but use

Enmity's End: Peacemaking - Chapter One

  Enmity’s End: Peacemaking     Chapter One My name is Orva. I am a Moyo-Jiwe. My twin brother Takeo and I are nearly of age, and by this time next week, we will have our Cornerstones. I am excited, but also afraid. Never before have I had such a large responsibility. If a Moyo-Jiwe’s Cornerstone is Enmity's End: Peacemaking destroyed, they will die. As long as we are children, our Cornerstones are watched carefully by the protectors, but when we come of age, it is then our responsibility. Cornerstones are extremely powerful objects, with four types. One is to attack, another heals, another protects, and another is used for transportation. They are all equally powerful, but most children here do not want to be a healer. All of the other three have different types: different types of transportation, different attack methods, and different ranges of protection, but only one type of healing Cornerstone. The village elders are quick to remind us, however, that if a healer were
