Chapter 13-The Factions of 12 And The Neutrals!
Ignees-I am not the guy who named me Ignees, I am Alexander Macedon some call me Alexander Of Macedon and the books name me Alexander The Great. Ring a bell?
Silver-What the hell?!
Ice-Is this one of those legends I heard about during your studies, Master?
Silver-You think I will fall for that?
Alexander-Jeez! You really are an idiot, are you? Well, let’s talk about this later. We need to keep our guests entertained, don’t we?
Silver-I will believe you, but, only for this once. Let me….. HEY WHERE DID YOU GO?!
(Alexander rushes Lion with his shield and sword)
(Alexander clashes with Lion’s hand)
Lion-WHAT?! MY COUNTER ISN’T WORKING!
Alexander-My ability is…… Negate! That’s right, be scared because all of your gifts are negated when my sword strikes you. What’s the matter?! Are you so impressed, you lost your words?
(Lion backs up)
Lion-For now, we shall retreat. But, we won’t forget this encounter.
Alexander-You better don’t or else I will have to find you and kill you.
(Lion and the other vanish)
(Alexander walks back to Silver)
Silver-Hey! What’s your name?
Alexander-I said you I am Alexander The Third or Alexander The Great or Alexander Macedon…..
Silver-Are you serious? You telling me you are the legendary hero Alexander? What a joke!
Alexander-Let us sit and talk.
Silver-Sure! Let’s go at my hotel than.
Alexander-No! Right here is a perfect spot.
Silver-HERE! THIS BATTLEGROUND?!
Alexander-Yeah! Got a problem?
(Both Alexander and Silver sit on the ground in front of each other)
Ice-Master! Are you sure about this?
Silver-Yeah, I guess……
Alexander-A talking sword, how very interesting! I saw you do that crazy cool attack.
Alexander-Oh yeah! This is a long explanation so better listen carefully.
Alexander-Since ancient times heroes, folk lores and mythical creatures have taken reign over various period of time.
Silver-I know that.
Alexander-Well, the thing you don’t know is that every new generation new heroes are born, new creatures are born and new folk lores are produced. This process is called reincarnation.
(Alexander nods his head)
Alexander-The thing is people always reincarnate as a plant, human, animal or even supernatural beings and some of these are the reincarnation of ancient heroes and mythical creatures. I am the reincarnation of Alexander The Great. My name Alexander Macedon and I am 28 years old. But, my gift comes from the ancient hero Alexander The Third who is considered a legendary hero throughout Greece.
Silver-So, you are telling me?
Alexander-Yes! I didn’t kill that friend of yours, it was one of the 12 demon lords.
Silver-What exactly are you saying?
Alexander-To be honest even I don’t know which legendary hero or mythical creature it was. But, I am not a demon lord, a guardian angel or Fallen one. I actually don’t belong to any of the 12 man faction. I am the neutral hero.
Silver-I get it 12 Demon Lords, Guardian Angels and Fallen Ones, you are neither of them and that makes you a neutral being.
Alexander-That’s right! I am just here to explore the world just like Alexander The Third. But, instead of conquering it my heart says to explore it and see what I found on my conquest.
(Alexander points at Silver)
Alexander-That’s right, kinda reminds me when I first found out I was the incarnation of someone as great as Alexander. I had the same look as yours, a look of someone who has lost someone precious. A look of someone who wasn’t able to protect someone her cared for….. A look of someone who wants to become strong…… A look of someone who wants to win no matter the odds….. That is a look only a true gem would have, a true hero would have.
(Alexander stands and looks at Silver’s face)
Alexander-Hey, why are your eyes tearing up?
Silver-A hero…… Thanks a lot….. For that…… Alexander……
Alexander-I just speak the truth, after all that’s how a king should act, right?
(Silver looks up and Alexander vanished then he smiles again)
Silver-Someday……. I will become just like you wanted me to mom……. Because someone finally acknowledged me……..
(Chigara and Yuki arrive at the scene)
Silver-Hey Chigara, Ms.Yamamoto. Why are you guys here?
(Chigara runs towards Silver and hugs)
Silver-OW! OW! OW! OW! THAT HURTS!
Ice-MASTER’S INJURED, MS.SHIROMA!
(Silver gets up)
(Yuki slaps Silver’s face)
Yuki-You know, you are just a BIG BIG IDIOT! YOU MAKE US WORRY ABOUT YOU AND YOU ARE HERE WITH ALL THOSE BRUISES! WHAT KIND OF WEAK GUY GOES TO FIGHT ALL ALONE?
Silver-How did you know I was?
Chigara-It’s because of all those bruises you big dummy! And you shouldn’t try to act hero in front of us, we can clearly see your having hard time even standing.
Ice-That is because the Master has used up energy which is more than usual.,
Silver-ICE! I am completely fine……. I just need to…….
Yuki and Chigara-SILVER!!!!
(Silver falls to the ground)
(From a distant tree Alexander keeps on watching Silver)
???-His a pretty strong kid, isn’t he Alexander?
Alexander-Hmm? Definitely, to successfully use a move of such huge calibre which could even endanger my life. He has the potential to be a real strong guy in the future maybe even surpass all the heroes of current generations too.
???-36 faction heroes and mythical beings and 24 neutral all fighting to take control of this world. One wants to obliterate it, another wants world peace and another wants to redeem the world. What a beautiful poem that will be……
Alexander-Beautiful, huh?! We might have to see about that…… Adrianus!
Adrianus-Yes, Alexander The Third!
(Next Time, Silver is about to undertake his first mission with Martez. Be ready because Martez is here about to annoy Silver!)
