Ang pagikot ng dalawang mundo
(The movement of both worlds)
I need to find my book…
I need to find my scrolls…
Where the heck is my cell phone!
Messenger eagles are supposed to be fast. Where the heck are they!
Arimi, can I borrow some cash? Just for today, please!
Give me your money.
Whoa! Bunnies! AMAZING!
Take those rabbits away from me before I fry them.
I wanna play dodge ball! Come on, pick me, pick me, pick me!
Do I look like I want to play tag? Idiots…
Give me back my pen, you butt-plug!
Either give me back my ink, or die in a painful way. Which will it be, dumb ass?
Twinkle, twinkle, little star!
… I don't sing. So back off.
Long, sweeping skirts billowed behind a woman, her flaxen tresses twisting into an elegant bun. Her bare feet rubbed against the cold marbled flooring, it seemed she was tolerant with the temperature.
As she walked further, the remaining steps available rounded off into a few. Soon enough, a two-door entrance stood before her, a towering pillar with mysterious carvings standing on either sides. Glancing up at the soaring wooden gates, she grabbed hold of the two metal handles, pushing it forward.
A different aura welcomed her, as if embracing her body lightly. The atmosphere was inviting, pushing her gently into the gigantic room. The ceiling was high and the chamber was wide. Flowing velvet curtains draped against the stained-glass windows, flaring candles hovered brightly above her head.
I should probably thank the wind manipulators for the candles. They even gave us the permanent ones.
Bringing herself back to her purpose, the woman approached the golden bookstand in the very center of the den. It's base was laden with an assortment of different jewels and stones, and carvings of silver graced its stand.
A blank piece of yellowing parchment sat on the stand, rolled close. She took it into her hands, smoothed it out, and pinned it with one hand.
Heaving a deep breath, she slowly brought her closed fist parallel to her chest. A multitude of differently colored lights slipped out of the crevices between her fingers, each battling to escape first.
Slowly, she opened her hand.
Four distinctive ribbons of luminosity danced from the base of her palm. Each had similar color, each had a dissimilar auras. All in a hue of hazy, ice blue… the beams of light rose up like smoke in mystical dance-like movements.
In a swift move, the woman thrusted her glowing hand onto the blank paper.
Black kanji letterings immediately ran down the empty scroll, rearranging themselves into legible sentences. Opaque, water-colored pictures blotted down the paper, as if droplets of liquid trickled onto it. After a couple of minutes, the once empty parchment was filled with writings and mellow designs.
With a flourish of her hand, her eyes scanned through the pages once again, just like she did for the past centuries.
Ryuuden is the world of elements.
This world is divided into four continents, each depending on the element the inhabitants posses. The realms of fire, wind, water and earth encompassed the dimension as a whole.
Every single being residing upon this world controls a diverse power harnessed from nature; whether it be the blaze of fire, the torrent of wind, the surge of water or the tremor of earth.
But in every continent, there is someone who ranges above all, in both ability and in intelligence. They are called the manipulators, who represent each realm with their prowess in utilizing their elemental capability. Each controller ranges in supremacy, as well as in their specialties.
Still, only one governs all interactions between the four realms. She is the diyosa, who has the exact copy of all four elements. She was one of the few who can reveal the true content of the prophecy. The prophecy contains the whole history of Ryuuden, from its origin up to the present time.
But the prophecy not only shows the saga of the dimension. Within the very essence of it, one thing haven't been opened up yet, not even by the diyosa. It was the divination of Ryuuden's future.
The future danger that will befall the whole dimension, and how it can be stopped.
To read the prophecy of the future, the four elements should be trapped inside one body. But not even the diyosa, who posses the precise replicas of all four elements, had no ability to do so.
But all knew that there was one who can. That being was long called the elemental bender, who had the strongest caste of all four powers. She had the very skill to decode the prophecy, for the whole world to find a way to preclude themselves away from the great peril.
It had been months, years, centuries, since the past elemental bender perished in attempt to force open the divination of the forthcoming. The chosen one will not be reborn after several centuries. Even now that a new diyosa took the throne, no signs of such a powerful creature was found.
But the question was…
Where is he?
Maybe he will appear, the moment the people least expected him to.
That would be the moment all ears are ready for her to speak, for him to say…
" Hey, little girl, I think that game is far too brutal for someone your age." A female voice pointed out briefly.
The teenager felt a sudden flicker of anger. The kid just ignored her! HER of all people! It even escalated into a higher notch when the youngster casted her a look that screamed: I-DON'T-KNOW-YOU-SO-STOP-TALKING-TO-ME-YOU-TOTAL-STRANGER!
" I think you should just keep your nose out of other people's business, miss." The girl sneered at her, her once doe eyes reducing into mere slits. Then she stuck her tongue out at her.
" Why you—DO YOU WANNA DIE IN AN EARLY AGE!" she yelled, causing the girl's earphones to topple of her tiny head.
There was a brief pause. As the teenager fumed in such great anger, the little girl's eyes began to water, her lower lip trembling, and her nose flowing of the worst case of nasal discharge.
Aahh… great. Just great. This is the greatest thing to ever happen to me! The fifteen-year old cursed inside her mind, knowing that she now didn't have the right to do so in public.
" M… m.. mo… MOOOOOMMMMMMMMYYYYYYYYY!" the girl bursted into an ear-piercing shriek, her tiny fist curled into tiny balls, her nasal area growing even much worse than possible.
Amidst the panic and her desire to run away from her seat, the woman thought, Yech… you can fill a whole swimming pool with her slime…
The next thing she knew, a woman of about forty years rushed into the internet café, holding a wide range of colored grocery bags. She was dressed with a pair slime green t-shirt and old pair of jumpers. A pair of spectacles was perched on her nose bridge, a bit of fog collecting on the surface. She looked like the typical mom who fell victim in the hands of a spoiled brat-child.
The teen swore she was never going to look like that. Note to self: avoid snotty children at all times.
As she tried her hardest to free herself from the tangled wirings that caught her shoe, she heard the kid stutter in a way any parent could fall for.
" M-mommy, (sniff, sniff) da woman yewwed ad meeee! Sh-she toowwd me I'll daaaaaayyyy!" she bawled, her hand positioned on the side of her eye, the archetypal mannerism of a child who had cried profusely.
(That statement translates to: " MOMMY, THE WOMAN YELLED AT ME! SHE TOLD ME I'LL DIE!)
That stupid kid! She even used that child-talk thing! Talk about evil… she thought angrily, shooting the kid one last glare before pushing through the glass doors. As far as she knew, that kid knew how to speak audible language just a while ago.
She sighed, as her run slowed into a trudge.
That was just the thing she needed to complete her day… all she wanted to do was play a decent game of counterstrike for a whole hour. Was that so much to ask! But then in came the little girl, trying to act like a complete angel in front of her mommy. But then as she sat on the metal chair of her computer stall, she surprisingly opened up the counterstrike program. She was 7 years old! Kids of seven years old are supposed to sit on a wooden stool, plop open a kiddy book and start reading! Not wither their innocent eyes out in front of a computer screen.
Was caring about another person's future illegal now?
As she walked around in her denim skirt, plain shirt (printed with the words 'don't care and still not caring!' in gleaming, red letters) and skater shoes, she fell into a complete stop.
Glancing at her digital watch strapped on her wrist, she tried to recoup her previous memories…
Oh, there it is! It hit her like a six wheeler truck filled with stinking baskets of fish. She once again continued her way.
Then stopped again.
Was she forgetting something…?
Am I forgetting something…?
Again, it hit her like a six-wheeler struck filled with rotting veggies.
Shit… I forgot the crew war!
With that, she was gone.
She ran. What, you think she just disappeared in thin air!
Name: Haruno Sakura.
Age: fifteen year old.
Occupation: student. Elemental bender.
At last, the scroll drew close, it's surface completely devoid of any writings. Once again, it was blank as it was a while ago.
" Reading the prophecy again, Tsunade-sama? Don't you think it's too much already?" a male voice intoned, calling for the diyosa's attention.
The blond chuckled lightly, shaking her head in a slow motion. " I know it's impossible for me to read the divination of the future, Kakashi." She muttered, " But sometimes I just feel that maybe I can think up of some way to read it."
The man leaning by the wall heaved himself off the position. He wore a traditional warrior's garb, comprising of an armor covering the torso, hunter green pants and sleeveless shirt. A cloak was draped around his body, covering his back. But what made him stand out was the dark cloth that swaddled his face. All that was revealed was two lazy orbs, one jet black, and the other piercing red.
" You shouldn't push yourself, Tsunade-sama. Elemental benders are the only beings that can open the prophecy."
The diyosa then straightened, apparently she was planning to tell him something far more business-like. " Speaking of which, Kakashi, please send a messenger eagle to the four elemental manipulators. I want them in this fortress by the next day."
" Can I ask why?" Kakashi inquired politely.
" Because," Tsunade stated, finally turning to meet his gaze.
She was grinning.
" I found her."
AHA! So, it is finished! Can you believe I actually posted another story! Amidst of the seven others I have to update! Dear lord, this is crazy…
Anyway, I HAVE A DOG! Didn't see that coming do ya! Yup, his name is Batista, and I got it from my favorite wrestler in the whole world!
And just a reminder, incase you guys haven't checked it out for a while, By the Sword is already updated. I guess doesn't give out alerts on chapter switches… Don't fret if the chapters are only three, that's because I switched the new chapter with the sorry note I posted last month. So, technically, chapter # three is chapter number three. Ehehe… that didn't make the explanation quite easy, right?
Anyway, I can't tell you anything about the story now. Just that Sakura came from earth and she's totally oblivious about the existence of Ryuuden, and of her position as an elemental bender in that realm. I got this idea from AVATAR: the last air bender, so, sue me! But still, it's a completely different story with completely different characters! So… BEWARE! Ehehe…
And, if ever you read this story thoroughly, you can see that there are different terms in this fiction that is not English. Terms as diyosa are based from Filipino language, because I DEDICATE THIS STORY TO MY FELLOW PINOYS! WE SO ROCK! Ehem, technically, the word diyosa is the Filipino translation for goddess. If by any chance the word is god, it would be translated as diyos.
ANOTHER ANNOUNCEMENT! Watch out for the long awaited updates on Bullet-Proof, Your Wish Is My Command, Hello Panda!, Mister Mailman, and the long awaited Love Story.
PATIENCE! Thanks a lot.
Please read! (and review, if ever you feel the need to bash me for not updating sooner.)
