Heart of chaos
I'm in the middle of a dark forest, I look around me and see nothing but trees engulfed in shadow. That is, until I see an old, and very familiar looking house. I just stand their a couple of minutes, staring at the house in disbelief. "I-it can't be, that's impossible" I thought to myself as I slowly made my way to the house. As I got closer to the old house, I could see that the lights were on, and I could see two figures inside that I recognized instantly. "Mom, Dad!" I cried out as I started running to the house, but as soon as I got within a few feet of it, the house caught on fire. "No! I wont loose you again" I yelled as I ran even faster to the house, but as soon as I was about to reach the door, I could feel something stop me. I turned my head around, only to be filled with fright and shock at what I saw. The darkness was grabbing me, wrapping around my arms and legs like chains, and it was dragging me away from the now burning house. "NOOOOOOOO!" I screamed as I was pulled into the shadows, with the last thing I saw being the house my parents were in burning down into ashes.
"AHHHHHHHHHH!" I screamed as I shot strait up out of the bed I was in, my whole body was sweating and my heart felt like it was about to burst out of my chest. The events of the dream continued to play thru my mind until a pillow hit me right in the face. "Shish, why do have to be so loud this early in the morning" said a very irritated sounding voice. I looked over to bed next to mine to see a girl standing next to it; she had long, dark red hair, and brown eyes that were glaring at me. She had on a black pajama top, with black pajama bottoms, and on her back were large, black bat like wings. "Eh he, sorry about that Nova" I said as I rubbed the back of my head with my hand, since the fear was knocked out of me from the pillow she threw at me. "Nova, it's not Hikari's fault he had a nightmare" said a sweet voice in a gentle tone. Me and Nova both turned are heads to the source of the voice, which belonged to a girl with golden blond hair and sky blue eyes, she was getting out of her bed and I could see what she had on, which was a light blue pajama top and bottoms, and on her back she had large, white bird like wings. "Well, he can try to be a little quieter, Aegis" Nova said as she turned her head from the said girl, back to me. "Uh, well, you to go ahead and eat, I'm going to go get ready" I said as I quickly headed to the bath room, grabbing my jacket and other things as I did.
I went into the bathroom and closed the door behind me, I couldn't help but be amazed at how nice every thing looked, well, we did spend the night in a hotel, Aegis and Nova kept on saying how they wanted to spend the night in a hotel, and boy am I glad that I listened. I went over to the full body mirror and looked at my reflection, I had long, silver hair that went a little past my waist that seemed to go every where, and it also framed my face that had violet colored eyes. I looked at the top of my head to see a pair of silver fox ears, in which I looked at my back to see a long, silver fox tail. If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm a fox beast kin. I smiled as I wagged my tail around a little. I then grabbed one of the things that were on the counter that I put my jacket and everything else on, I looked at it and smiled, it was a Yin-Yang symbol, but it looked like it was an ornament for hair. I grabbed the end of my hair and placed the hair ornament on, and then put on a pair of black fingerless gloves that had a white trim. I then grabbed two large, thick, golden bracelets and gave another smile as I put them on. I then proceeded to put on my jacket, which was silvery white with a trim of thick, pure black fur, with also a thick, pure black collar. After I put it on, I pulled two long katana like swords from a belt on the counter, one had a pure white frame while the other was black. I stared at them for a little bit and only one word came to my mine, Arcanea. I sighed as I put the belt around my waist and then put the swords back in.
I went out of the bathroom, only to be greeted with the sound of food being munched. I headed over to the table that Nova and Aegis were sitting at, and the one that was making all of the noise was none other than Nova, she was stuffing her face with as much food that she possibly could, while Aegis was slowly eating a small plate of eggs. I noticed though, that they both had different outfits on, Aegis was wearing a long, light blue top with a white trim, and a dark blue skirt, while Nova had on a black top with red streaks going thru it, and a pair of black shorts with a chain on the sides, this might seem normal, but the thing is, they don't have any clothes, no, it's not that I don't buy them any, the thing is, what ever type of clothing they imagine, they can create out of thin air and wear as long as they want, to tell you the truth, I have no idea how they do this, I asked them both about it, but Aegis said it was very difficult to explain, and all Nova did was just look at me like she didn't have an answer. I sat down in the chair that was between them and grabbed a piece of fruit from one of the plates, and began quietly nibbling it. "Hikari, are you ok?" I looked over at Aegis; her face was full of worry. Yeah, I'm ok Aegis, why wouldn't I be?" I asked her while at the same time giving her a warm smile. "You had that nightmare again, didn't you?" I lowered my head a little as she asked me that question, I've always had that nightmare, not every night, just once in a while, but it's always the same one, with me always waking up screaming. I then felt a warm hand being placed on my shoulder, I looked up, and Aegis was smiling at me. "Hikari, you don't have to keep things like that away from us, me and Nova are always here for you, right Nova?" Aegis then turned her smile to Nova, only to have it turn into a frown. Nova wasn't even listening to us; her attention was more focused on the food. Nova then stopped eating and looked up. "What?" she said in a normal tone, which was not very often I assure you. Aegis then lowered her head a little and just let out a small sigh. "Nothing, just go ahead and eat" Aegis said in a now defeated tone, Nova, just staring at her for a few moments, didn't take it as anything, and went ahead and did as Aegis said. I looked at Aegis, and could only smile; I got up, and embraced her in a hug. "I know you are Aegis, you and Nova both have always been their for me, no matter what the situation is" I said as I then broke the hug, but still smiled at her.
"Boy, am I stuffed!" Nova loudly exclaimed as she sat up and started to stretch her arms, she then looked at us, and smiled. "Okay, you two ready to get on with the mission?" Nova said in a now determined voice, I could only smile at this, it was always better to hear her like this than to hear her sounding angry all of the time. "I'm as ready as I'll ever be" Aegis said in a sort of dead pan voice as she got up and quickly smiled at her sister. They both then looked at me and smiled, I closed my eyes and smiled as I then got up "Ok, let's get to work" I said in a now determined voice much like Novas as I opened my eyes with new vigor. Aegis and Nova both suddenly turned into balls of light, that then went right into my body "Okay, lets go get him" I heard Novas voice eagerly shout in my mind. I sighed to my self a little, and then I started to focus energy towards my back, I then felt the energy pulse out and form into something, I turned my head and smiled at what I saw. I had a huge, black bat wing and a huge, white, bird like wing on my back, I flapped them both around a bit to stretch them out, and it felt good to have my wings out after a long time. I then went over to the dresser by the bed that I slept in, and opened up one of the drawers, and I pulled out a mask. I looked at it for a few moments, the left side of it was black while the other side was white, with an eye design, the one the black, while the other was white. I sighed and frowned a little at the mask as I put it on, it was a constant reminder of who I was, a mark that would always be apart of me. I then put the door key on the table and went over to the balcony; we were on the fifth floor after all. I then jumped over the balcony into the open air, and then I spread my wings, I loved how cool and brisk the morning air felt, I then slowly made my way down to the street. It was still early in the morning, so no one was around, after I made it to the ground, I formed my wings around me, and together they formed a hooded cloak, half black, half white. "Right, he should be close by" I said as I made my way to the target.
