Hey! First things first, I'd like to say that I am a HUGE fan of the Edge Chronicles. Mainly because it is AWESOME! I've never written an Edge Chronicles fan fiction before so… here I go!

P.S This is basically a kind of a behind-the-scenes story to Freeglader. Storyline is Felix's past and present. About his life and all. I think that Felix should be mentioned more. Felix is awesome! Almost as awesome as me! Just kidding…

Chapter 1 – Take me to your leader

"So, you want to join the Ghosts of Screetown, eh?" a mobgnome asked me. I nodded my head eagerly. I was covered in mud and rocks stuck to me as if glued on. But my spirit was never better. "Fine, I'll call our leader," he said in a gruff voice and left. I had worked for this for a long time. I'm not going to give up.

Soon, the mobgnome returned. "Follow me," he said and walked off. I walked after him, trying my best to be calm. We had to duck, crawl, climb down stairs in the dark, but finally we got to where he was, wherever it is.

"Felix. She's here," the mobgnome said to the darkness. Out of the darkness, a well-build, blonde boy emerged. The boy nodded and the mobgnome left the room.

"Hi, I'm Felix Lodd, leader of the Ghosts of Screetown," he said amiably.

"Felix Lodd, son of the great Fenbrus Lodd. It's an honour to meet you. I'm Alyssa Morgen and I was a librarian," I replied in a business-like tone.

Felix smirked. "A librarian," he mused. "Well, mustn't keep you waiting. Come, sit down and we'll discuss if you can be part of the Ghosts." He pointed to a chair and I sat down on it. "So, how did you come here?" he asked me.

"Hmmm… Let's see. I swam across the Edgewater River, killed a few monsters I met in Screetown, found one of your ghosts and asked him to bring me to you," I replied simply.

"You swam across miles of murky and filthy water, battled and managed to kill the ferocious monsters living in Screetown that almost all citizens fear, managed to spot a Ghost even though he wore all white and it was daylight and persuaded him to take you to me?" he asked, clearly impressed.

"Yeah, pretty much," I answered. "Any more questions?"

"Patience," he answered. "Aren't you tired?"

"As a matter of fact, yes, I am," I grinned.

Felix chuckled. "Well, how about a duel against the Ghosts. One at a time, starting from the weakest, right now? Same weapons and no tricks. You up for it right now?" he asked testily.

"Sure, why not," I replied, smirking my favourite smirk.
