Of Shadows and Embers part 8Events of the Horizon
After her date with the young man known as DK Mark, Isabelle had been spending her days studying, meeting up with him on a few more dates whenever she found enough time.
As time went on, the two began to feel closer to one another, eventually getting approved as a couple by the other students. Eventually, news of the prom getting close reached both Mark and Isabelle, the two of them reacting to it in a different manner.
Isabelle put aside her studies, focusing on getting a proper prom dress. She also volunteered to help with preparing everything. Meanwhile, Mark started to think about what he would do at the prom while helping Isabelle with the volunteer work.
One day, as the prom was only a few days away, the two were helping with setting up some decorations in one of the larger hallrooms, and Mark started to chat with Isabelle about their situation.
"I have to say, Isabelle. I've never had as many good times in my life as the ones with you. By the way, do you ha
Mage's Apprentice part 6Memorable Moments
As time went on, Courtney began to improve on her training with spellcasting, and also started to feel more at home at the academy. Isabelle kept her company as much as she could, becoming the best friend and something of a sister figure to her.
Though Isabelle was now Courtney's best friend, she wasn't her only friend at the academy. Both Travis and Alicia, alongside Shadow, have been hanging out with Courtney and helping her out with life in the academy.
Classes were sometimes a bit hard for the girl, but she could always rely on help from Isabelle. Exceptions to this were the times when she had to ask help from Clarice, who still seemed quite neutral towards her.
One day, a storm began to approach on the grounds of the Wisdio academy. In the darkness of the night, blasts of thunder began to echo on the academy grounds, waking Courtney from her peaceful slumber.
Finding the lightning and thunder to be frightening, the girl climbed out of her bed, rushing through the
Tales of Inathiel part 16The Dangers in Darkness
As night had arrived, Inathiel proceeded to summon Christopher from the pocket dimension she had sent him in. Quickly after this, he requested the vampire to look around for the nearest large city in the area.
Finding what she was looking for, the man reported what he saw and the two started to make their way towards the city in the southeast. Unknown to them, monsters lurked in the area they were going through.
Three beasts, seemingly not from this world, snuck behind the two, their forms only briefly revealed by the moonlight to shift between those of a beast with shaggy fur and a gaunt, freakish humanoid with long claws for hands and feet.
It was likely that these monsters were agents of the devils, having been sent to slay Inathiel before she could even begin her quest. They followed the woman and her guardian closely, waiting for a chance to strike.
But as Inathiel and Christopher carried on their way, the monsters suddenly jumped to attack them on the road
Of Shadows and Embers part 6Trouble Abound
Getting on with their date, Isabelle and Mark began to walk out of the café, but the two were going to face a new problem as a group consisting of four thugs was stalking them, focusing especially on Isabelle.
Grinning at the sight of Isabelle, the leader of the thugs took out a large dagger, while one of his lackeys took out a knife from his pocket, all four sneaking closer towards the two. "That cowgirl would sell for a good price. Let's get her first..."
After waiting for a moment, the thugs jumped out of their hiding, two of them dashing at Mark. But to their surprise, the young man dodged them and landed a good kick on one thug's stomach.
Isabelle was jumped by the other two, quickly backing away before one of them grabbed her by her hair and put her in an arm lock while the leader put his dagger on her neck, seeing that Mark had beaten down the other two.
"Hold it, hotshot, or your little cow gets butchered..." Seeing this, Mark growled in anger while Isabelle
Mage's Apprentice part 4Practicing Magic
After her first lesson, Courtney had been spending time with Isabelle, who's friendly demeanour and kind words had turned her into a good friend of hers despite the girl's current cowgirl form.
Staying in Isabelle's room for the night since she hadn't gotten her own one yet, Courtney woke up the next morning to see her new friend still asleep. But as she changed her clothes and checked her belongings, Isabelle slowly began to wake up.
As she saw her friend ready for class already, she got up from the bed, worried if she was late from class or something. While she then started to get herself ready, Courtney looked at the hallway outside the door to see if anyone was there.
Seeing nobody there, she turned back to look at Isabelle, who was now dressed and ready to go to class. "So, shall we go now?" The girl nodded, and the two entered the hallway, seeing Clarice walking from the other side of the corridor.
The quiet girl suddenly spoke out to the two about the class they
Tales of Inathiel part 15The Next Destination
While the church of the dark god Kol'Marah as well as the devils of Iretik both plotted their moves in response to Inathiel's advance, the woman herself began her quest towards godhood alongside her new companion Christopher the vampire.
As night began to fall, the woman now began to summon him from the pocket dimension where she had sent him earlier. Focusing her magical energy, she formed a summoning circle of a crimson color on the ground in front of her.
Only few moments passed before Christopher's coffin appeared above the circle, slowly floating down to the ground as the spell finished and the circle disappeared. The vampire didn't waste a single moment to get out of his coffin.
Looking up to see that the sun no longer shined, Christopher turned to look at Inathiel, a neutral expression on his face. "So, night has already arrived?" Nodding in response, the woman then spoke on about the current situation.
"I need to find people of great magical power. Where ca
Of Shadows and Embers part 4First Date
After finishing her classes for the day, Isabelle started making preparations for her date with Mark. While the time went on, the girl's excitement turned into a nervous feeling more common to her.
"What if something goes wrong? I hope I don't embarrass myself, or Mark..." As she prepared to leave, she put on her favourite school uniform and took some change with her in case of an emergency.
Getting to the lobby of the school, Isabelle noticed Mark standing near the end of the room, dressed fancily and apparently waiting for her. Noticing the cowgirl, he smiled and spoke out with his hand placed forward to hold hands with her.
"Shall we go then?" Seeing this, Isabelle smiled and made a nod, not noticing how her face was blushing as she grabbed Mark's hand and started to walk with him. Stepping out of the school, they started to make their way to the local café.
As they arrived, the young man turned to look at Isabelle, taking his wallet out. "So, what kind of coffee wil
Mage's Apprentice part 2The New Classmate
Finding herself in the esteemed mage's academy Wisdio, a young mage named Courtney Arcania discussed her admission with headmaster Adrian Allon, surprised by the girl's young age but still taking her application seriously.
After discussing the matter and accepting her in the academy, the man instructed her to go and attend to her first class in classroom number three. Finding her way to the classroom, knocking on the door of the room and waiting only a moment before the door opened.
The teacher looked at the new student in an unimpressed manner at first. "Can I help you?" Noticing the the man didn't know she was a student, Courtney responded in a polite tone. "Hello. I have come to attend this class. I'm a new student here."
Hearing this, the man seemed confused, but he could tell that the girl was serious about this. "I will ask the headmaster later. I trust I can believe you, so just step in and take a seat." Nodding at this, the girl walked in, sitting down to an e
Tales of Inathiel part 14Plots Unfolding
While Inathiel began her journey to see the world and slowly find her way to divinity, agents of both light and darkness began to stir. In a church to the west of castle Albrand, a priest of the dark god Kol'Marah went on to speak with the high inquisitor.
"Oh esteemed and revered one, I bear bad news concerning that vampire living in the castle to the east..." The messenger was a man with dark hair, the rest of his features covered by his dark hooded robes.
The high priest, on the other hand, was a grey-skinned humanoid with eyes of glowing crimson, dressed in dark priestly robes with red and white linings on it, wearing a necklace made of humanoid skulls and a helm made from a dragon's skull.
Towering over the messenger as he got up from his seat, the high priest's features became even more well-defined in the dim lighting of the dark temple. In addition to his odd skin tone and clothes, the man had black curved horns and a reptilian tail of black scales.
