"The world has abruptly fallen to pieces. Emperor Gray has made the decision that only the rich should live. Letting all the poor be pushed off into the uninhabitable land. Suddenly, a poor scientist figured out the way of spaceships. Before they are pushed off of the livable land. He lets everyone who can fit in the ship enter. Soon, he and the poor build other ships after being pushed off the Empire's maps. After making sustainable grounds on the outer earth. They begin a rebellion. They promote Scientist Almon Ambrose to be their leader. Excepting only so the poor can live better, Ambrose begins to enrich the city. Training a miniature army. Suddenly, Ambrose receives a baby from thin air. All his attention is given to this baby, but, realizing his people need him. He selects a nurse for the young baby. Soon, the city is thriving in its wealth. The baby is two years old after being found by Ambrose. Though, that may not be its birthday, it is the one he chose.
Abruptly, Ambrose dies from a heart attack, at least that's what the people are told. The Heir to the throne, his daughter Althea, is only two, and must have a person to stand for her until she can make proper decisions. General Alois is chosen, soon, he is taking all young man who are thirteen and older to be soldiers, he is too anxious to attack the Co Empire. Worst of all, General Alois yearns to slaughter Emperor Gray himself. Young Althea is treated properly, and General Alois takes care of her as if she were his own daughter. Soon, a plague appears, killing off General Alois. Althea is six years old, still unready to rule. General Adele, still a young woman takes control, focusing on mainly, on the wealth of the city. She tends to the Health, State, Intelligence, and Ambition of the people.
Adele teaches Althea that it doesn't matter whether you are man or woman, that you can still be officiant to the world. She also, took the law down that thirteen-year-olds boys must go to the army. Though, she replenished the law that when you reach the age twenty as a boy, you must go into the army. General Adele wasn't absent for the next eight years,"
I read the words aloud to Alani as she brushed my hair, "I'm so sad that Papa had died. I wish I could relive those years I had with him. Uncle Alois too. I'm so confused on how they had suddenly died like this. I'm just so worried Aunt Adele will die too." Soon, I was told to go to sleep.
I woke up to the smell of cleaning spray. "Alani! What time is it?" I asked casually. Alani looked at me with a sigh, "The sleeping beauty, awakes," she sighed. "It's precisely 7:00. General Adele is wanting you at 7:20. So, get up and dress!" I blinked twice, staring at the ceiling. I was exceedingly tired after the night before. Aunt Adele was very energetic that night, giving me no sleep entirely. Once I found the absent power to rise from my bed, my dressing went quickly. I pulled my common dress on, an odd one it was, having floating rings that drained from my energy, it was long past my thigh, and it was pearl blue. I brushed my long hair that seemed so brilliant black.
When I flung myself from my dressing room, Alani was already shoving food in my mouth, saying, "Hurry! Eat! General Adele is waiting for you!" We ran down the hall, I couldn't recall how many times this had happened this week. 'Too often', Papa would say, I remember the way he talked with so much power, yet so sweetly. When I fumbled the door open to the hall where Aunt Adele sat, I could see General Miguel across the table from her. General Miguel was often here for dinner, but never for breakfast. I pondered a second until Aunt Adele called me to be seated. "May I ask? Why do you come today General Miguel?" I asked, sitting comfortably in my seat.
He looked at me with his clack eyes that seemed to stare into your soul. General Miguel's son sat closely next to him, watching every move a made, ready to correct me if I twitched wrong. General Miguel laid his hands on the table, sure to not lay his elbows on it. "Well, Adele and I are, speaking of forge teams of young teens. We believe it is time we repay the Co Empire. Adele and I have been considering this for a while now, and finally are here to tell you and Bilal, that, you will be assigned to the same team. We will give further information in a week or so," General Miguel explained, fidgeting with his hands.
"Well, what do you think Althea?" Aunt Adele asked.
"I-I believe," I stumbled, "I believe that it's a wondrous idea except. Let me put this right… don't you believe higher ranks should be scattered about. Making the teams equal in rank and intelligence?"
"You may be right, there are further plans of this. So, we will take your suggestion in mind. Thank you for giving us your thoughts. Bilal, would you like to say anything?" Aunt Adele asked.
"Yes, yes, I would," Bilal began, taking a breath. "I, adore he whole thought of repaying the Co Empire. But May I ask? Why young teens?"
"Well, the young teens still have the energy, stamina, and strength that we are now absent of. Also, we believe it would be proper training for young men and women to learn about teamwork, and war," Aunt Adele replied.
I watched as the conversation spread to other topics. I was half asleep when I heard the ringer ring inside the bell room. "Well, it was nice talking this morning Miguel. Shall we meet again?" she asked, winking. He smiled and arose, nodding his head. After they had left, Adele left me to my studies. I read about the day when they shipped my people off to die. I felt so mad at Emperor Gray, that I swore to myself that I would personally murder him and his children. How could he do such a thing to such innocent people.
I checked my VP, sliding across it to see my meetings that day. I saw that I could have an outing that day, and I simply shrilled with joy. Finishing my studies, I clasped my hair into a tight ponytail. Sir Cullen was to take me out in the streets to look about. I swiftly went to find Sir Cullen. Soon, catching him on the way to my room, we were out in the streets. I knew I had to bring one of my hover boards so I connected one to my bracelet. When we stopped at a store full of books, I didn't waste any time to find a history book of the old Nation of America. I paid the price of the book and happily rushed along with Sir Cullen behind me, practically bored to death.
I smiled at the people who stared at me in awe, what high class my dress must have looked, though, many people had outfits like me. Then, I suddenly realized it was my eyes, skin, and hair. I was exotic compared to the other people. Most had swirling blonde hair, tanned skin, and deep brown eyes. I, having straight jet-black hair, pale skin, and electric blue eyes, I was so different. I didn't like the feeling of eyes watching me, I quickly dated into a store that didn't seem to have any people. When I turned around from the outside world, I saw an empty room. My eyes widened, this could be the place for me to come and build my workshop. It'd the most fun, making high-tech machines. I turned around and begged Sir Cullen to call Aunt Adele to be willing enough for me to build things in this small room.
Finally, after a long while of begging, Sir Cullen agreed. He flipped his hand and opened a column that said: Call General Adele. As he did, Aunt Adele's image emerged. "Hello Sir Culle-" she began, but I cut her off quickly. "OH! Aunt Adele! Could you get me this lovely little room?!" I pulled the little image and showed her the room. "It'd be perfect for my working! I'll do anything to get it!" I could see she was now letting her eyes fall low.
"Althea, I told you that you can't just get rooms in the city. I wo-" she began.
"PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!" I pleaded, "I beggeth of thee!"
"Fine," Aunt Adele sighed, not wanting any more my pestering.
"OH, thank you!"
Sir Cullen and I went and bought the room, being General Adele niece, or daughter. I got the room straight away. I smiled brilliantly and looked at the room to decide what provisions should be placed inside. I resolved in my mind that I need tools, A working table, building books, metal, wires, and other mechanical things. "Come Sir Cullen, I think I need Some supplies. Soon, we were buying things I didn't require. Finally, Sir Cullen and I having our hands full, laid everything in the room. "Now, it's time to build a small kitchen over there," I sighed. You'd think that I sat there and watched Sir Cullen help me build it but, I helped exceptionally. When we were done putting the cabinets together, we began setting my desk on the same wall as the kitchen. Soon, I put a large table closer to the desk than the entrance. Soon, Sir Cullen and I were worn out, Sir Cullen decided that he would take the bullet train and I might go alone on my hover board. "I'll be fine! I promise!" I said.
His Royal Highness came in with smile on his face. "Clyda! I found another Red Bird! I won this time!" He smiled brightly his cheeks puffing so. His sister, Her Royal Highness pouted. "I'll win next time!" His Royal Highness rolled his eyes, placing a hand on his hip. He quickly peeks at his sister's drawing. It's two people holding hands. The one on the left is a boy with blonde hair, the other on the right is a girl with green hair. "You're so lovey-dovey you know Cly?" she turned to looked at him and frowned.
"Get away you jerk!" she shouted.
He smirked, he always loved embarrassing his little sister. He quickly turned to his tutor, "Could you explain this to me?" He asked, raising an eyebrow, "What is matter with girls?" His tutor shook his head, "That is one thing-Your Royal Highness- that I cannot explain."
He clasped his hands together, "What shall we do? Shall we read of history?" The tutor nodded. The tutor opened his mouth and began, "Unexpectedly, the earth's lands come to release a sudden change of environment, letting loose the most repulsing beings. The Great Emperor Gray, having lost all hope in living sends the ones who believe in dying as happiness away. Out to die, to live happily without cause. Abruptly, they fly off on a spaceship, to who knows where. Everyone who hadn't wanted to die were safe inside the walls of the empire. Cloyd, Emperor Gray's son was born two one year before the FALL. He is the rightful heir to the throne.
He is taught that he must protect his country, and everything in it and is soon he is joined by his younger sister Clyda. When Clyda was born, Cloyd was the age of two. The Co Empire remained silent for the next years."
The tutor stopped and watched His Royal Highness' face stare contently at the ground. "There are so many questions I have. It would be so nice to actually be in that, er, I mean remember," His Royal Highness sighed. The Tutor nodded in reply.
I sped down the streets of the city, racing the cars. It was exceedingly fun to be alone, not having anyone to taunt me. The wind rushed pass stinging my eyes, but also blowing my hair out of my face. When I reached the train station, Sir Cullen wasn't there. A while later his train came, but still, he wasn't there. I paced back and forth as I imagined the possibilities that could have made Sir Cullen not board the train. "You, have you seen a silver haired girl run down this way?!" I voice asked.
I whipped around, there was a boy standing in front of me, "No, I do not recall seeing a girl under your description. Please do not disturb me though, I'm trying to solve a problem."
"What type of problem?" the boy asked, anxious to know.
"Is that really any of your concern?" I asked, realizing he hadn't heard any of my 'do not disturb' in the sentence.
"Well, I'm pretty good at solving mysteries."
"Then, if a bodyguard does not board a train to meet you, what might you think happened to him?"
"Well, he probably got kidnapped, so they could easily get his subject."
"I see, thank you anyways! Also, I think I saw one silver haired girl run left. Bye!" I shouted, running off.
"Thanks!" he shouted.
I ran up to the coordinator, "Has a man named Cristobal Cullen checked into the system Sir?" He looked at the system, nodded, and asked me if I needed help. "No, Sir, I'm fine. Thank you very much." I left the station and opened my VP. I blinked as my call to Sir Cullen was canceled I realized that when you call a person they knew your location. I briskly stood, I knew exactly what to do. I had to leave a trap. I flipped a page on my VP and pulled a large trap I had made in the castle, out of it. It sat lying flat on the ground, I pushed it over near the grass and let the green grass stand up.
I smiled at my trap and hoped it worked. I climbed behind the bench and made off to my little room. Nearing my little house, I heard a rustle of a bush. My eyes darted over to the noise. I could see people moving around in it. "YOU! What are you doing here?!" I shouted. "Who are you? What do you want?!"
Someone stepped out of the bush, it was the boy I met at the train station. His faced looked so innocent, I didn't think he could be the adult napper, or could he? "We're innocent!" he shouted. We?
"We?" I asked.
"Me and my friend, come out Socorro!"
Suddenly a silver haired girl emerged from the bush, "I told you not to bring me in all this mess Tavon! Now you're going to blame everything on me!" I watched the girl as she stepped next to the innocent looking boy.
"Did you have anything to do with Sir Cullen! What were you doing in the bush!?"
"What's up with the urgency?" Socorro asked, rolling her eyes.
"Sorry about her, we had nothing to do with your missing person. But, we wanted," he was interrupted by the girl saying 'we?' but he began again. "I wanted to know if you'd like to be on our team. Well kind of gang."
"You just met this girl and you're already asking her in our gang. I quit with you!" Socorro said.
"Sorry, my current position in this city wouldn't allow me to be in your team. Thank you very much for your invitation," I sighed.
"Oh, sorry for getting in your way," Tavon sighed, embarrassingly scratching the back of his head.
"Who are you that you have a bodyguard, and you can't get in our gang?" Socorro asked.
"Althea Ambrose, that's all I'll say. Bye anyway!" I shouted, running off to my little room.
"What's that name mean again?" Titan asked.
"The… THE GENERAL ADELE'S CHILD, OR ALMON AMBROSE'S!" Socorro shouted.
"I have no idea who you're talking about."
"I just can't…" Socorro sighed, losing her efforts of knocking sense into her friend.
I walked into my little room, I sat down in one of my chairs and pondered about Sir Cullen, he could be hurt. I sat wondering as the minutes ticked by. I glanced outside to see that the evening had past, and it was now night. I went to the door and locked it with my key. Aunt Adele would be worried, but I knew I needed to wait for Sir Cullen.
When I woke up the next morning, I heard the sound of rushing voices. I looked out my door to see people cluttering around the market. I smiled at the fresh air and yawned. I grabbed a random jacket on the floor. I ripped the keys from the floor and I jumped on my hover board, then headed out the door. I zipped passed people in market. My intention was to inform the palace guards about Sir Cullen, then, continue further with my studies and hope Sir Cullen would be found. I reached the guards and showed them my card. "Premier Ambrose, we'll be on it in a matter of seconds. But we must escort you to the General," one guard said.
"No need to escort me. I know my way around the palace," I replied, passing the guards.
I raced up the steps, I couldn't wait to tell Aunt Adele. I opened the door to Aunt Adele's office to see General Miguel speaking with her in person.
His Royal Highness, Cloyd, pounced on his bed as he looked out the window at the city. He blinked at the wall, the wall that protected them from the things. There was something crawling over it something like moss. HE quickly stood upright and raced to his father's room. "FATHER! There's something at the wall!" He shouted, but no one was there except his frightened mother. He turned to the wall that held the swords. "I'm going to find Clyda. Stay here. I'm not going to let anyone get you."
He climbed down the stairs and reached his sisters room. "Clyda! Clyda! Wake up!" He shouted. Her eyes opened slowly as he rushed her out of bed. "We don't have time. This may not be completely serious but I need to be prepared. When they reached his mother's room, they sat all quietly in her bed. Hoping that they would not be found by the things.
I looked into Aunt Adele's eyes, "Sorry for the interruption but… Sir Cullen has been adult napped. I'm very confused why they didn't catch me while I was out by myself. I'm sorry for staying away so long. I didn't feel led to come back. Have you made plans about the teams?" I blurted. Aunt Adele and General Miguel nodded. I sat down next to General Miguel. "We have made plans four 15 teams to be sent out. You'll be on team 7. Bilal will be on team 3. We're still recruiting the children, but, results will be up soon. We'll notify you directly when we're finished," Aunt Adele replied.
"I'll be returning further unto my studies," I sighed.
I sat down neatly in my chair, I calculated and recalculated. Nothing was fulfilling. My mind kept drifting off to the teams and Sir Cullen. I slammed the book against me thighs. Alani sat next to me, sewing. "What are you up to?" she asked.
"Studies," I sighed.
"What's the problem Madam?"
"I can't stop thinking about the teams and Sir Cullen. It's most sickening."
"Well, how about you work super hard, and we watch your favorite movie," she said, smiling.
"Thanks Alani!" I cheered, hugging her.
I boredly finished my book and plugged earbuds in and listened to music. I read through my history books. Then, Alani and I sat in a large room with seats everywhere. I swiped on my VP and connected to the VS. "It's connected, I'm so excited to watch it again."
The movie began, I was glued to the screen. I loved the concept of aliens with swords that were of light, and most of all, the ships, zooming everywhere, blasting other ships. I was completely happy to watch the movie. The name of the movie was Star Wars. I heard it is a very old movie.
When it unfortunately finished, I rubbed my eyes and stood up. "I need to go take a stroll in the palace gardens. Don't worry about me, I think I'm going to take a while outside. Bye!"
Alani nodded in reply as I left the big room. I slumped down the stairs as I looked at the clock it. It was evening now and the sun was setting. When I emerged from the door to the palace garden, I sat on a stone bench. There, I pondered about what I loved to do. I didn't know what it was, nothing interested me except people and technology. Suddenly, a bush rattled behind me. I quickly stood up and looked around. There wasn't anybody in sight. Suddenly an arm slipped around my neck, I tucked my chin in before the arm could fully reach my neck. I let my body go limp and fell out of their arms. I punched whoever they were in the face and stepped back.
Their face was shadows by a large cloak and I could see anything. Abruptly, I felt a sense that meant someone was getting close. I ducked as a punch flew over my head. I soon realized that I was outnumbered, for there were at least five guys attacking me. I flipped my fingers as a sword appeared in my hand, made and engineered by Althea Ambrose. I began slicing the sword left and right, I hadn't been trained on how to use it. I kept on swinging the sword widely until I had at least two down.
I hadn't wanted to fight, but I couldn't let them take me away. I slashed the sword at the other two and hastily ran to the door. It was locked. I slowly backed away from the door and turned around. The two shadows smirked from under their cloaks. I scowled and bit my lip. I had no idea what to do. I flipped my hand and pulled my hover board out of the VP. I jumped on it and flew off. I wondered why they didn't move as I rode. I flew to the roof of the castle and looked at the city. I flew higher than the castle and hoped that my engine would ride for a while longer. Then, I went to sleep afraid of the shadows that I had met only mere minutes ago.
I woke up to a loud bang of my hover board. The engine had run out. I was exceedingly glad I hadn't flown much higher than the roof. I stretched my back and opened my eyes to the warm sun. I grabbed my hover board and climbed down to an open window in the castle. One of the Maids was in the room and shewed me out of the window. If I hadn't had grabbed the rail I might have died. "Hey! I'm not to be pushed around like this!" I shouted, half angry half terrified.
I climbed down to my room and slid into my window. My bed was covered with clothes and boxes. Alani plopped out of the restroom. "Your Highness! I've been looking for you all morning! You look quite of a mess!"
"Thanks. I was just attacked by some weird cloak guys. It was awesome. I used my sword that I made, it worked really well. I might have to fix it a little, read some sword books and maybe, study some other things too. Then, I'll be able t-" I began.
"General Adele is waiting for you. She must speak to you about something," Alani told me, rudely interrupting.
His Royal Highness finally saw the Emperor's army defeat the first wave of things. He was positive that no way could the things get to him and his mother and sister.
This was fun! I have some more to write though...
There are a few errors...
