I couldn’t possibly figure out why the people are hanging around at the plaza. Nothing seems to be wrong or out of place with the place.
Might as well try my luck while those people are occupied by their own thoughts. Let’s see, an old man passes right in front of me.
That was easy. Heck, this crowded place really sped things up a bit. Hmmm… he got a huge sum of money for such an old idiot.
Another one passed by. He’s dressed kinda funny, although I think he’s of high standing because he have a cloak on. This guy probably have a lot of gold too. I trailed him slowly… wait for the right moment… and then…
Whoa, got it. Easy as pie. Just when I was gonna turn around onto the other direction, I felt something gripped my arm. The arm holding the bag of gold.
“Give it back,” the man I just stole from demanded.
“Well… ok,” I said.
He let go of my arm.
As soon as my arm is free, I started running. Running from that cloaked person. I never expected my theft to be busted so easily. Am I getting nervous? Why would I get nervous about that guy? Maybe I’m just still sleepy. Oh and it’s daytime too.
Just when I thought I was beginning to lose him, he suddenly got hold of my back. He encircled his arms around my torso and began to restrict me of any movement. His arms were strong compared to my light body. I’m beginning to feel some great pain on my chest.
“Give back what you stole thief!” He shouted.
“Ok ok! Alright! Just let go of me!” I was practically grasping for air now.
I dropped the bag of gold on the ground then he released me as he picks it up. Phew, I can breathe normal again.
“Hey, aren’t you forgetting something?”
“What? I already gave you what you ask. What more do you want from me?”
He gave me a somewhat demonic look. What the heck? Interest? But I… I have no choice. I know for sure that I’m no match for this guy if we fought one on one even with my daggers. I must just do what he says if I want to get away in one piece.
“Alright here take it!” I raised my hands in front of me defensively.
“Good,” he smiled slyly.
The heck… I never really expected to get caught while stealing by the person I’m stealing from. Much less got my own gold taken by him. Some thief am I.
“Some thief you are. Don’t get caught next time. Especially by me.”
Yeah I know right?
“Oh, you found him already David?”
Someone else came to the scene. This time it has the voice of a girl. I turned around. Hey guess what? it really was a girl. She’s kinda petite looking and have this kind of, weird staff on her hand. She walked up to blondie and said something I didn’t understand. Or rather, something I DO NOT want to understand.
“David, he’s also an unentity like us.”
“What? This scumbag thief who don’t know how to not get caught while stealing? Ironic.”
“Believe me, he is.”
“Well, ok. If you say so.”
Blondie approached me.
“Hey blue guy.”
“Don’t call me that. I have a name you know.”
“Oh really? Then what is the name of the blue guy.”
“I’m Shin. Shin Break. But I’m mostly known as Breaker.”
“Whoa, I like that. ‘Breaker’.”
He smiled slyly again. No doubt in my mind. This man is scheming something that’s not good for me. Yeah, really bad business. I hate Tristan…
“Apparently Breaker, you are one of us.”
“One of… what?”
The girl approached us and then began to speak also.
“Why don’t we go somewhere where we could sit? I getting tired of standing,” she said.
We settled against the trunk of a huge tree. There, they explained a whole lot of things to me. They said that we’re what they called an Unentity and we travel through time and space. It was just plain unbelievable. I think my I.Q. is dropping by the second. And then another one came up over us. This one have reddish-brown hair, medium build, and is carrying a long polearm rested on his shoulder.
“Whoa Elyse, David. Who do we have here?” The man asked.
“He’s one of us Randy. His name’s Breaker. He’s also an Unentity,” the girl called Elyse explained.
“Woohoohoo. Ya kept getting more and more companions eh, Elyse?”
I continued to introduce myself to them and them to me. What have I gotten myself into? Are these people time travelers? Well, they do dressed funny. But, it just couldn’t be possible.
After some time, they decided to go to somewhere else. They said they’re meeting someone at a certain tavern here in Tristan. And they wanted me to go with them. I don’t really think it’s a good idea, but as long as it could benefit me, then why not? I followed them as we went inside a tavern. That is, after the red-headed guy treated all of us to some shakes.
Inside the tavern, we went into a table already occupied by two people. I think these two are with them since the smaller one with the red hat greeted them when we came over.
It’s not for long that an old man walked up to us and dropped a queer-looking book on the table. He sat and began talking to us with some mysterious things that I don’t understand. He explained something about a Devourer, and The Four Seals. I’m like a sitting duck among all of us because of my ignorance.
After the old man, which was apparently named Nades, finishes his explanation, the book suddenly crumbled to dust. I was dumbfounded. I’ve seen magic before, but every time I see one right before my eyes, I would be in a state of shock. I’m not really used to seeing these things. Much less believing it.
The old man bid us farewell and exited the tavern. From here on, our group decided to take on a new journey toward some sort of things I don’t, and don’t even want to, understand. But I think I will, sooner or later. Since, from now on, I’m going to be traveling with these guys who call themselves an Unentity. Apparently, I am also the same.
