PostSubject: Another short fanfic: Xeru   Sat Sep 17, 2011 4:03 am

This came to me as a random idea......THIS one is purely fan-made.


Victoria Island was the mainstream of the Maple World, with people strong and weak alike joining forces in its various towns.
This story, however, takes place on a small island to the east...Maple Island.
Many years ago, a young child named Zeru was born. He was immediately put into the harsh training regimen of Maple Island, beginning to show proficiency in the sword at the young age of five.
Attending the school every child was required to, he studied and fought attentively. He made a friend: an aspiring thief by the name of Antlan.
While Zeru was of the popular group, having shown ample wits and unsurpassed fighting prowess, Antlan essentially skyrocketed in the opposite direction. His aspiration was shunned greatly, for the warriors of the school found the shady dealings of the thieves cowardly and perfidious.

One day, this got out of hand...

Point of View: Omniscient

"I haven't seen Antlan all day," Zeru said to the classmate adjacent to him.
The classmate sniffed haughtily. "Just as well. I hope he doesn't return."
Zeru sighed at the condescending treatment toward his friend. It was tiring, at best, and plain malevolent at worst.

Throughout the day, Zeru kept sharp watch for his friend. However, it was not until lunch until he heard gossip about him:
"I heard the thief kid's being dealt with over at the Snail Gardens," a passing classmate said to another.
"Yeah," replied the other. "That place is normally off-limits, so nobody will find him there."
It was all Zeru needed. He raced out of the school, heading east toward the Snail Gardens.
"Get back here! That place is off-limits!" yelled a teacher, but a combination of the wind and Zeru's worry for his friend dispelled thoughts of his studies.

"Show some guts, you spineless piece of trash!" one of the bullies said harshly.
Antlan was bruised and bloody. His legs were immobilized by crushing attacks by the half-dozen warriors he was surrounded by.
These were powerful, experienced warriors. They had felt the harsh training of the school for nearly ten years, and was ready to be transferred to Victoria Island for their Job Advancement.
They also had a great hatred for thieves.

They continued attacking him. Antlan, determined not to show weakness, bit his lip as blow after blow rained on him.


"Stop!" came a voice.
Heads turned. All of them centered on a single child that had sprinted here as fast as he could: Zeru.
A bully smiled. "Well if it isn't Zeru. Here to stand up for your little friend again?"
Zeru frowned deeply. "I can defeat you with a sword. I hope you are aware of that."
Another bully laughed. "Of course you can! But can you defeat all six of us?"
In a synchronized sound, six swords were drawn from their scabbards, the friction making the distinctive noise.
Zeru was nervous. He was well aware he didn't stand much chance one-versus-six. Also, he was unarmed, while they all had swords.

Zeru charged at them, but the fight was barely a fight. He tried a left hook to the nearest bully's face, but he blocked with the blade of the sword and Zeru was forced to retract his punch. In an instant, two more bullies attacked his flanks, pinning his arms down.

"Now," the bully said, leveling his blade with Antlan's throat. "Let's see if this kid's got any guts. Any to bleed out, that is!"
There was a chorus of laughter at the morbid joke.
"Stop!" Zeru yelled, struggling against his adversaries. "Murder is strictly against the rules!"
"Oh, of course it is. But who will know? Both of you will die, and the corpses won't be found...," another bully said, a crooked smile forming on his face.


--
"Z...Ze...ru....," said a voice within his mind.
"What?" Zeru thought.
"Awaken me. You will have power...power to save your friend. Your indignation has awakened me...so release my strength...," it said.
"What? Who are you?" Zeru asked.
"I...am....your light.....Kindness, passion, friendship, love...indignation. These give me strength," he says.
"Will I truly be strong enough?" Zeru wondered.
"More than," it replied.
--
The bully was about to land the finishing blow.
"Leave him alone," Zeru said, voice deathly calm.
"The two bullies holding him down looked at him in shock. This voice was not the voice of Zeru. It was a different entity. One that wanted them all...dead.
"What?" the one about to kill Antlan said.
Zeru exploded in a flash of light.
Suddenly, all his clothes glimmered in a bright golden aura.
--
"Damn! My powers are unstable!" Zeru's Light thought. "I need a channel in which to give my power in small amounts. I can't give him raw power without destroying his mind!"
--
The bully quickly swung an overhead at the near-unconscious Antlan, but the blade was stopped by a hand. The bully looked up, and met the glowing golden eyes of Zeru.
"I told you...to leave him alone!" he roared. He clenched his fist and the sword broke.

The bullies looked back in fear. They made a break for it, but Zeru appeared in front of the portal.
"Now, are we going somewhere?" he asked in a voice that struck ice into the hearts of the bullies.

"Now, atone for the sins you have accumulated! Heaven's Judgment!" Zeru called out.
Circles appeared in the sky. Before any of them could react, bright yellow beams rushed downward at the bullies....
...But was promptly dispelled by an old man wearing a white robe.
"Stay back!" Grendel yelled. "Comet Bolt!"
A bolt of energy fell from the sky at Zeru, but he pointed his index finger at it, and it dispersed.
"Not so fast! Soul Piercer!" Athena Pierce called, leaping out from behind a tree.
Zeru tried to block the arrows, but the pure destructive force forced through his defenses and he took the blow.
"Cutdown!" Dances with Balrog commanded, leaping down from the sky.
Zeru blocked the crushing blow with two arms. Suddenly, he felt a painful sensation.
He looked back and saw the Dark Lord behind him, dagger in his back.
"Quadruple Stab," he said smugly.
Zeru fell to the ground, defeated, while he transformed back to normal. The last remnants of his Light energy was used to heal his wounds.


"That child...," Grendel said, musing.
"He's really something. I haven't seen anyone disperse your Comet Bolt," Dark Lord commented.
"It's just in time you guys arrived. How did you know?" Athena asked.
Dances with Balrog smiled. "We have a way of knowing things. But now is not the time for that. I think it's in our best interest-- as well as this child's-- if we temporarily seal his Light Energy. He could cause a lot more trouble if he had open access to that power."
Grendel nodded. "I concur."
They stood in a square around the unconscious Zeru. "We, of the four leaders of Victoria, seal this magic energy within this child!"
Four polychrome sparks erupted from each leader. It implanted itself into Zeru. They also altered his, along with the bullies' and Antlan's memories so they would never know this happened.

--
Zeru's Light had his powers oppressed. Over time, he developed a conscious mind.
This mind, seeing naught but a seal suppressing his powers, thought of himself as Zeru's darkness, seemingly feeding off his negative emotions...waiting for a moment to break free.

Xeru was born.

...Alright then.

~By Request of Cain~
Point of View: STILL Omniscient. I only change it in First-Person stories.
The man wearing a pitch black robe was lounging on his black rock stone in Sleepywood.
A cool breeze wafted through the room, and another man, similarly dressed, appeared in front of Zure.
"Zure?" Lice asked.
"Mm," Zure replied.
"We have not found the location of the elemental fountain. Also, Zeru and his friends are about to enter the Kerning Swamp," Lice reported.
"Very good," Zure said simply, but he did not dismiss Lice.
"Err...is there something else?" Lice asked.
"There is. We have a potentially powerful ally. However, I just need you to show him the way...He's my brother's Darkness. He's here in my cave. I don't know why, but I think my darkness energy dragged him here. Show him through the cave of memories," Zure said.
Lice bowed. "As you wish."
The magician then disappeared. Zure suddenly convulsed, jerking out of his chair onto the ground.
"Gr...GAAH! Get...out...of...me...," he said.
"Fool. I won't relinquish my grip on you that easily. As time passes, my power grows...," the same mouth said.

--
Xeru suddenly sat up and examined his surroundings. He blinked. The last thing he remembered was when Zeru found his Fire Star, the seal started weakening. Now, however, he was in this unknown black cave.
"Welcome," said a voice.
Xeru looked for the source, and saw a black-clad magician holding a gold and blue wand.
"Who are you? For that matter, who am I?" Xeru asked.
Lice smiled. "My name is Lice, of the Dark Order. Who you are? You are but the darkness of another. You are...the power of his hate, his desire, and his lust."
Xeru frowned. "So...you say I am but a figment of another?" Lice smiled.
"That is correct."
"Why am I here?" Xeru asked.
Lice pointed at a cave. "Relive the memories...of your other self."
Xeru simply nodded, and walked into the cave...

--
Grendel was silently meditating in his library. He felt a presence enter the room, but did not open his eyes.
"Athena. What is it?"
"Grendel. You know that child, Zeru?" Athena asked.
Grendel nodded. "It's been nearly ten whole years. What of it? Has his Light been unsealed?"
Athena nodded glumly. "I'm afraid so. Instead of being reawakened as his light...he seems to have become Zeru's darkness."
Grendel suddenly opened his eyes. "He what?"
"It seems impossible, but the answer is the same. Our seal melted away, and what came out was no light, but dark," Athena said.
Grendel grimaced. "I'm afraid it's out of our hands now. Since they're split, we can't reseal him again."
"It's odd. That wasn't the intention of our seal," Athena commented.
--
A man dressed in a blood-red cloak wearing battle armor was looking at a crystal ball.

Hein smiled and spoke to himself. "Perfect."
--
Lice watched as Xeru defeated enemy after enemy. That Zeru has a really strong Darkness, he thought.
After completion of the trial, Xeru returned.
"That was his memories," Xeru said apathetically.
"Yes. And this is him!" Lice exclaimed.
There was a bright flash of light, and a darkened Zeru appeared and attacked Xeru.
Xeru promptly defeated it, however. Lice nodded silently in approval.
"I...I hate this," Xeru said.
"Hate what?" Lice asked.
"I hate...being nothing but a part of another! Who am I? Naught but the hate and spite of another! Why...why must I be this?" Xeru asked.
Lice grimaced for a split second. He seemed to reject being darkness...no, that's not right. He just wants individuality, Lice thought.
"Yes...let your hate grow! Let your powers multiply!" Lice said.

>=| I can't tell Lice's gender, so I never used a pronoun for he/she/it.

Oh yeah, now I have to add the clincher.



~~
And from there...
You know the story...better than I.
