SPEECHLESS

CHAPTER ONE

In parts of the world it was a very nice and fortunate evening. However, other places weren't that lucky. There was a freak flood incident in Rolandia. A certain green clad young man was helping to make the final repairs.

"Put in nail...clank with hammer...and…done!" the man said as he set down the hammer and wiped some sweat off his forehead. Suddenly an old lady walked up to him.

"Mr. Hugh Foster?" the lady said.

"Hmm…?" the guy said as he turned around. The lady bowed.

"The people of Rolandia and myself are so grateful that you came here and stayed with us for two and a half years to help get this place back to it's normal self." The lady said.

"Oh think nothing of it! I was glad to help!" Hugh said with a hint of happiness in his voice.

"Grandma! Grandma!" a young voice came.

"Huh…?" the elderly lady said as she turned around. She noticed her grandchild running up to her. The young girl looked to be around thirteen. She had short red unruly hair with a long white dress on. Her skin was fairly dark and a little muddy.

"Adaline…what is it dear?" the grandmother said. Adaline blushed a little bit.

"I…have something for the nice man…" she said.

"Oh?" the lady said.

"Hmm..." Hugh said as he looked at the little girl. He leaned down slightly so he was eye level with Adaline.

"Hello there…" he said.

"Um…hi…thanks for all you've done…" she said. Hugh smiled.

"No problem!" he said while rustling her hair a little bit. Adaline smiled. She then held out something.

"This is for you...I made it myself..." Adaline said. Hugh looked at the little trinket that Adaline held in her hands. It was a beautifully hand-carved jewelry box. It had an intricate design with small gems and shells embedded in it.

"It's very nice...thank you...but you worked so hard making it that I don't wanna take it from you..." Hugh said.

"No! I want you to have it!" Adaline said. "It's a present from me!"

Hugh looked upon her pouty little face and couldn't help but laugh.

"Okay! Okay!" he laughed.

"Yay!" Adaline said happily. Hugh accepted the gift.

"Now can you stay with us!" Adaline asked.

"Adaline!" the grandmother said.

"Sorry grandma..." Adaline said. Hugh laughed a little.

"I'd love to, but I can't...I promise I'll come to visit though.." Hugh said.

"Yay!" Adaline said hugging Hugh. A few moments later they departed. Hugh stood up.

"Well...I must be going now...take care!" Hugh said as he walked away.

"Bye!" Adaline said. The grandmother simply waved. When Hugh was a good distance away...he teleported out of Rolandia and to a field. Hugh spotted a nice big weeping willow and laid down under it. He put his hands underneath his head. One leg was bent, the other remained straight. He slowly closed his eyes.

"Ah…and now for some much needed rest.." he said as he slowly drifted off.

Meanwhile….

A young lady in a priestess outfit sat in front of a statue in a shrine. She was in a praying position. Her eyes were lightly closed.

"Please…great spirit of the moon...help me to do what needs to be done..." the girl whispered softly. She then sighed. Suddenly the doors to the shrine burst open.

"Miss Yayoi! Your services are needed!"

Yayoi turned around.

"Yes?" she said.

"Miss…We're getting a very strong signal at this location..." the attendent said as he handed Yayoi a piece of paper. Yayoi looked the address over.

"Ah...yes...Very well.." she said as she got up. She headed towards the location.

'I wonder what mister Slayn did this time..' she thought.

Slayn's house…

Raimy was flying all over the place.

"AHH! HELP! HELP!" Raimy screamed.

"Raimy! Chill...I can handle this!" Slayn said running around.

"Chill...Chill...Funny you should say that dark master!" Raimy said.

"Oh shut up!" Slayn said.

A few hours later….

Yayoi came up to the where the house was.

"Hmm...Funny...There should be a house here..." she said. Suddenly Raimy flew up to Yayoi.

"Yayoi! Yayoi!" Raimy said.

"Oh...Raimy…What happened? Where's the house?" Yayoi questioned

"Umm...Slayn kinda...burned it down..." Raimy said.

"What!" Yayoi said. "How!" She spotted Slayn and marched up to him. Slayn saw Yayoi.

"Oh...Hi Yayoi.." Slayn said.

"Hi my ass! This is the fifth house that you burnt down this past month! What did you do this time!" Yayoi yelled.

"Whoa…Whoa...Calm down Yayoi…" Slayn said.

"Calm down...CALM DOWN! The first house was started by a toaster! Then there were those fire arrows that were mysteriously over-looking over the second house."

FLASHBACK…

Slayn was sitting on the couch slumped over.

"…I'm bored…" he said. A few moments later a lightbulb went off over his head..then crashed down. "Ooh! I know! I know!" he said getting up and jumping up and down. He ran to his room and got the magical fire arrows and ran outside. He climbed a tree and sat on a branch. Then he started firing them at the house.

"TIMBER!" Slayn yelled as he pulled one back on the bow and let it loose.

"OW! DAMMIT!" came a distant voice.

"…Uh…whoops…I think that was a bit too far…Sorry Victor!" Slayn apologized. Just then the arrow flew back and hit him in the leg.

"OUCHIES!" Slayn said as he did a face plant on the ground.

END OF FLASHBACK…

"Then the third house you got curious with a lighter! Then the fourth house you thought that the fire place was a sauna!"

FLASHBACK…

Slayn was sitting in a hot tub by the fireplace in his own home.

"Ahh…This was the perfect place to put this!" he exclaimed. A few moments later Slayn got out of the hot tub and went over to the fireplace. "And now for the relaxing sauna!" he said as he got in. A few more moments later he smelled something. "Ooh! I smell chicken!" Slayn said licking his lips. Then a few seconds later it dawned on him. "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I'M ON FIRE! STOP, DROP, AND ROLL! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! AHHHHHHHHHHH!" Slayn yelled as he rolled all over the house spreading the flames.

END OF FLASHBACK…

"And now what!" Yayoi screamed at the top of her lungs.

"Relax! Relax! It was nothing really!" Slayn said.

"Nothing…NOTHING!" Yayoi said.

"Heh...heh...Now now...no need to blow a gasket!" Slayn said.

"GRRRR! SLAYN WE CAN'T JUST KEEP PUTTING YOU IN DIFFERENT HOUSES! NOW TELL ME WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED!" Yayoi screamed. Slayn gasped.

"Oohh…Yayoi…you swore…" Slayn said.

"SLAYN!"

"He was grilling in the house….and then he sat on it…." Raimy said. Yayoi sweat dropped.

"…Grilling...in the house.." Yayoi repeated.

"Yup! That's what he was doing!" Raimy said. Yayoi growled a little as she whacked Slayn upside the head.

"Ouch!" Slayn said.

In the field….

Hugh slowly stirred. A few moments later a wind faerie flew over to him. Hugh sensed it and slowly sat up.

"What is it?" he asked. "Uh...huh...uh...huh…WHAT! ANOTHER ONE!" Hugh yelled. The wind faerie got scared by the yelling and took off. He got up and started walking towards Slayn's house.

Two days later….

Hugh finally arrived at Slayn's "house."

"What the…Geez…he really did a number on this one…" he said looking around. "What the heck did he do this time?"

Raimy flew up to Hugh.

"He was grilling in the house…and then he had a rump roast…" Raimy said.

"Huh…" Hugh said looking around for the voice. Raimy then flew in front of him.

"Silly…It's Raimy!" Raimy said.

"Oh..Of couse..Hi!" Hugh said.

"Yay! Raimy's so happy Hugh finally noticed her!" Raimy said. Hugh smiled

"…Wait…So what exactly did you mean…rump roast?" he asked.

"Raimy saw him sit on the grill…" Raimy said. Hugh sweatdropped.

"…He…did what…" Hugh said.

"He sat on the…Huh…Hugh…where are you going?" Raimy asked. Hugh walked up to Slayn. Slayn noticed Hugh.

"Oh..hi Hugh!" Slayn said. Hugh just whacked Slayn upside the head. Slayn put a hand to his head.

"Ouch! What was that for!" Slayn asked.

"…For being an idiot…" Hugh replied.

"………………….Hey!" Slayn said. Hugh just shook his head and walked away.

"Wait! Hugh..Where are you going?" Slayn asked.

"…Away from you…" Hugh said.

"…Why…What's wrong with me?" Slayn asked.

"…No comment…" Hugh said. Just then Yayoi noticed Hugh and walked up to him.

"Hi Hugh…" she said. Hugh looked up.

"Oh…hi Yayoi…" he replied.

"What are you doing here?" she asked.

"A wind faerie reported to me what happened…" Hugh said.

"Oh…I see…" Yayoi replied. "Well anyway..I better go and check on Slayn now…see ya…" she said as she walked over to Slayn. Hugh just sighed.

"…Yeah…Whatever…" was all he could say. Suddenly Raimy flew up to Hugh and sat on his shoulder.

"Raimy senses tension in the air…" she said.

"Huh?" Hugh said.

"What's wrong?" Raimy asked.

"…Nothing…Nothing at all…" Hugh said.

"…Uh…huh…" Raimy said.

"What!" Hugh said.

"…Not saying a word…" Raimy said.

"…Okay then…" he said. Raimy flew off. Hugh crossed his arms.

"…Hmph…I am not tense…" Hugh said with a pout.

"…Sure…" a random wind faerie said.

"…Yeah…We all know you're little secret…" a second wind faerie said.

"…Heh…heh…" a third said. Hugh grew an anger mark outside of his head.

"Slayn…How are you doing?" Yayoi asked.

"…Fine…Although…my ass hurts a little…" Slayn said.

"Well…I'd think so…I mean you did sit on a grill after all!" she said.

"…Yeah…I guess that was pretty stupid of me…huh…" he said.

"…Well…yeah…a little…" Yayoi responded. Suddenly they heard a loud screaming in the background.

"Huh?" Yayoi and Slayn said as they turned around. Hugh was chasing the wind faeries with his sword.

"Get back here you wind freaks!" Hugh yelled. Yayoi and Slayn looked at each other.

"…Wind freak…" Yayoi said.

"…Um…didn't he just insult himself?" Slayn said.

"…I think so…" Yayoi said with uncertainty.

"…Uh…huh…" Slayn said.

"…Yeah…So anyway…" Yayoi said.

"…Yeah…" Slayn said.
