I will be posting more chapters later for now here is chapter one
Chapter 1 The First Release
The morning came and the sound from the highway can be heard on top of Crestfall Hill. A figure is moving about his bed tossing and turning with sweat drooling from it. The figure rose fast from the bed. He was panting heavily sweat rolling down his face.
Eventually he got out of the bed and looked around the room. It was a fairly small room with a big window overlooking the hill. There was a desk, a TV stand, and a wardrobe. He walked over to the wardrobe and picked out a grey and green plaid button up shirt, and a pair of black shorts.
He moved sluggishly with his long blonde hair waving in front of his green-blue eyes. He was short being only about five foot three. He wasn’t physically built like his brother but he didn’t want to be, he was happy with who he was.
His sluggish movements stopped as he reached the sea theme bathroom with its lime green walls, fish toiletries and a blue fish bath/shower cover. He turned on the faucet and the water spill out in to the shell sink. He dipped his hands into the cool water and brought it up to his face. He dropped it on the top of his hair, with his face over the bowl.
He took a brush and brushed his normal bed head down to its normal straightness. He shut the door and locked it to do the rest of his morning routine. The door opened revealing a livelier and better looking man. He rushed down his stairs to his kitchen where he ran into his mom eating her pop-tart and drinking her coffee.
“Oh hey mom,” he said as he walked by her sitting on her couch. She turned to see him pass the kitchen table and into the cupboard. “Good morning sleepy-head,” she said with a welcoming tone in her voice, “you know, John, if you keep getting up late you will miss school, again.”
John pulled out a bag of muffins and then closed the door to face his mom, “Uh yeah sorry it’s just, you know I stay up real late, and this time I had a bad dream and couldn’t sleep.” He finished as he started to open the bag and eat the blueberry muffins that lay inside.
“Well these bad dreams have been more frequent then they used to be, they might be because of ‘something’ that happened at school,” she probed at him. His face was twisted and he irritably replied, “No mom nothing bad happened at school, can you stop asking,” he turned back to grab his muffins and headed towards his back in the welcome room
His mom got up and moved toward him. Her features became clearer her red curly hair, her many freckles and her paper white skin. She walked over to John and hugged him tightly as he tried to get his backpack. She stopped the hug and turned to face the front door.
A loud car horn could be heard twice from outside. John quickly grabbed his bag and shot out the door leaving his mom behind to watch him enter the car and go down the hill. She closed the door and walked back inside.
“I wonder what is wrong with that boy,” she said to herself before heading up stairs and into her room.
She closed the door behind and looked at the curio and dropped down to her knees and opened up a drawer and inside laid the black cloak from fourteen years ago. The feather mark on the top of it was redder then it had ever been. It was almost glowing. She tucked it back into the drawer and returned to getting ready for work
John stepped out of the car to with his friends, Leon and Spyk. They all walked past the iron gates that led into the school. The campus security greeted them a good day and then looked back for possible threats.
Leon and Spyk both stopped at the closest classroom where a group of people were standing around speaking. They stopped there as John kept moving on past them to a pathway that led into the back of the school. The path was marked to his left and then a right.
The path took three more turns before reaching a small wall near classroom with the room number labeled 407. He reached to one of the points sticking out from wall and pressed it seven times revealing a secret stairway which led into a black pit.
John entered making sure that no one saw the secret way to the bottom of the school. The way down was dark, but ever ten steps a motion light would turn on. After about fifty lights the stairs flattened out to a walkway.
The walkway was designed like the stairs, though the lights were ten feet apart. The end of the walkway leaded into a large room. The room was draped with light so that the features were clearly visible. It was a white and grey room; the walls were marked with the sign of a jackal. The round table which filled the center of the room seated twelve chairs; seven of the chairs were filled with people.
“Alright everyone let’s get this meeting started,” John raised his voiced through the hall.
John walked over to the chair facing the door. He sat down and began looking around, he saw that only two were missing, “but they are never here on time,” he said quietly to himself. Then a shutter came from the door, two people appeared from the doorway and began walking over to their seats.
“Okay now that Spyk and Leon are here we can start,” He started as he looked at his friends.
“Sorry, we had to listen to the news of the day,” said Spyk in his usual calm and cool tone.
“Alright well let’s discuss what we are to do this week for the school,” said John to the entire student council. The people at the table started to stir as if the statement was a secret code. Spyk reached in front of him and grabbed a sheet of paper that and started, “Alright when I call your name say here; Michael,” Michael in the back raised his hand up to signal that he was there.
“Okay then next, um, oh Desiree,” Spyk said as he looked around. “I’M HERE,” screamed Desiree in her normal loud voice. “Alright then screw this I see your all here lets get this on with,” Spyk said dropping the sheet and himself.
“Alright this meeting is a normal meeting where we do absolutely nothing but sit around and do nothing so, as always let’s get out the training materials,” John said pointing to the wall behind him. Part of the pure white wall broke forward from the rest of the wall and then to the right.
Pouring from the newly made hole was weapons, books, desks and training dummies. “Alright let’s get to it,” John said as he made his way to the weapons rack a long with Spyk and Leon. They all chose a different weapon; John a Bo staff, Spyk grabbed two kunai knives, and Leon selected the tonfas.
Leon and Spyk started the daily sparring match as John started single training; the rest of the people either when to martial arts training or into studying old books and articles. The entire consol was good at something, Spyk was talented with knives and small swords, and Leon was an expert at special attacks that could disarm or render someone unconscious. John was a weapons master, with an ability that no one else had, the ability to master any weapon given to him.
The rest were equally skilled with knowledge or hand to hand combat. Though not all of them were the leaders of the consol. This came as a surprise to the three when they were given the highest positions in the school.
The kids were all doing there activities quietly. Leon and Spyk stopped their sparring and John began sparring Leon as Spyk started to work on a training dummy. John was beating Leon as always but got hit a couple of times.
When the sparring stopped they turned to watch Spyk try and perfect the trial he has working on for some time. He made the first to slashes turned around for a back slash then missed. He tried that many times and failed all. He eventually became frustrated.
His anger could be heard his skin turned pale and his eyes began to show signs of blood. He became so angry his aggression became his abilities and achieved his goal then he continued with a side slash then a powerful stab. The stab passed through the dummy and stayed.
“I DID IT,” he yelled as he stayed focused on the spot that he hit.
John and the rest of them applauded his achievement. Spyk looked at his feat once more as his angry started to fall. Before it reached the bottom something inside Spyk stirred and grew.
“NOW,” exploded a double voice which poured from Spyk’s mouth.
The scream produced some powerful enough to blow a clean hole through the training dummy. In place of where the body once was, there was now a black flame. Spyk looked scared as if he did something he should not have done.
It was almost as if the power was a trigger, for a man in a black cloak flew down from the ceiling and at Spyk, “You’re coming with me,” Omnen bellowed as he grabbed the boy and took him into a blue portal.
“NO, brother he is not the one,” replied Arai as he too went through the portal.
Everyone watching had looks of terror and awe place upon them. What ever happened with Spyk caused something to happen and John and Leon couldn’t sit still to know what. Both of them looked at each other and bolted for the closing portal; they made it, but just barely.
