    Experiments

    Post by LokiLeader on Mon Oct 24, 2011 12:44 am

    The room was dark, a light red glow from my computer the only luminessence. I sit up from my sleep and listen at the faint scratching sound i can hear at my door. It's a light sound, similar to pawing, but with nails involved. I get up and wonder to the door yawning. The swings open as i clap my hands in the rythm it needs to open. I yawn again, knealing at the sight of a young black kitten with a bluish hue to its fur. "Do you need something Artemis?"

    "Of course Shen. Why else would i bother you at this hour?" The cat responds as it walks into my bedroom.

    "I don't know," I shrugged, "To annoy me, you tend to do that alot now adays." The cat turned and stared at me, with a look that read You dick.

    "Don't think that because I'm a cat i can't kick your ass." Artemis said as she climbed onto my bed and curled up on the pillow. "I came here to ask you a favor."

    "What does it involve?" I yawn

    "Well my brother Apollo has found himself in a bit of a rough spot." The cat purred wildly as she fluffed the pillows with her claws and rolled across them. "He's gone off and he's been captured my the magistrate. They're trying to confine his magic and I know I can't free him on my own."

    "How the hell did the magistrate catch him?"

    "He sorta... lightning bolted one of them in anger... in a city market."

    "Well I'll work on it tomrrow morning it's almost midnight and I'm tired from my testing." I pick up Artemis and set her on the ground as i climb into my bed again.

    "Would you mind if i slept with you tonight. Its awfully scary when im by myself."

    "Yeah sure whatever... pervert."

    ... What is going on?
    *no reply*
    <.< >.> ... *sees that no one is on*

    =3
    ______________

    I fly over the roof tops as a mist, blending into the night fog; I float low to the ground and follow

    the cat through the street. Until it stops in front of a home and starts scratching at the door.

    I float silently and reasemble myself in a dark corner.

    The door swings open and the cat walks in. I hear a faint "Do you need something Artemis?"

    before the door closes.

    I glide to the door and put my ear to it and hear the conversation of the two.

    Found you. I think to myself.

    With a dark smile I return to mist and blend back into the fog.

    I take a long hard look at my surroundings and engrave it into my mind.

    SoonI swirl in the cool air and then zoom back home to give a report.

    Soon...

    My dream swirls throughout my head, almost as if i was there... but i was actually there. I recognized the scene almost instantly. It was the hallway outside of my room at the Inn. I could hear myself talking to Artemis and then suddenly the air outside of my room condensed into an odd shape of a man. The whole scene began to blur and I could see a sharp smile slide across the mans face, then just as instantly as he had appearedm he dissipated into a mist and crept away.

    I shot up in my bed, with sweat sliding down my body, I was hot and the stuffy room didn't help. I got up and moved myself over to the window, opening it to see a thick blanket of fog carpeting the entire city. i could hear chariots and people bustling through the streets below, but i coudln't see them. "Artemis. It's time we left to go find some friends of mine at the barracks." I turn and see the cat curled up in a ball on the pillow next to mine. I sigh and grab the cat, stuffing it into my satchel.

    "MUAWAH!" She yelped as I threw her in the bag.

    I fly through the air to the expensive part of town where the nobles live and slip into a very expensive house through the window. I creep as mist along the floor to a bed, the sound of snoring could be heard. The mist swirls upward in a pillar next to the bed and reforms into my dark figure. I stand over the bed looking down at a short pudgy man sleeping. I blow mist across his face and try to wake him. His snoring becomes uneven and his eyes start to slowly open.
    "Wha... AAAAAAHHHHH!" The man screams and grabs his heart as he scurries to the edge of the bed.
    "Dammit Sandalfin! Are you trying to scare me to death?!?" Shouts the small man as he tries to catch his breath.
    I ignore the question and simply say "She's here." In a low gruff voice.
    The man’s face becomes serious in the moonlight "Are you sure it's her?"
    "Yes, unless there is another talking cat named Artemis that radiates magic of some kind and that happens to be in this town."
    The man gets up off his bed and moves towards his desk to open it.
    "Here." He says as he throws a bag of money to me.
    "Follow her, I want to know everything that has happened since the last time we crossed paths."
    I nod and I begin to fade back into fog from the feet up.
    "Time?" I ask.
    "End of the week."
    My now disembodied head nods again before it too is fog.
    I swirl around again and fly through the window and back into the cover of night.

    The streets bustled with people and the buildings rose three stories above the street. thatched rooves and mudstone bricks composed this part of town. I pushed myself through the crowd following the bleak ball of light that was the sun. After awhile I had reached my destination. A large inn, nestled between a forge and a cobbler. I checked the contents of my bag to make sure i was ready with everything I needed. Low and behold it was all their.

    "One cat, elenfroot map, 50 Gs and currative pixie dust. She'll be pleased i think." I said, stroking Artemis' head. I walked forward opening the door to the inn, hearing the soft hymn of the local trabodaur. I look up at the musician and she stop's playing her song.

    "Excuse my good patrons, but i must talk with a friend of mine quickly." she hoped off of her stage and strolled toward me, her short blonde hair, similar to that of a man's, but cleaner, bounced. Her ears protruded over half a foot and were pierced multiple times. Her eyes were a stoney grey and her body the perfect hourglass figure. She was, afterall, an elf. "Hello hello" she said as she reached my table. She leaned over and kissed me lighlty on my cheek. "Did you bring her?"

    "I brought her Silla," i said smiling. I opened up my bag and Artemis hopped out.

    "ARTY!" Silla yelled as she clutched the cat in her arms with a tight hug. "OH GOODNESS! I haven't seen you in over 6 decades. What have been up to?"

    "Exploring mostly." The cat responded.
    "She's being hunted by the Magistrate. Apollo's already been taken." I said sourly.
    "I see," Silla set down Artemis and then put her hand out. "If you want help you know what i want."
    "I have the map and wage right here." I hand her a map to her homeland of Elenfroot and the cost to hire a man crazy enough to try and move through the fog. "We have to get Apollo back from the magistrate."
    "you seem to be under the impression that this can be done." Silla unfurrled the map and began to read it.
    "If we don't try-" A metal covered hand suddenly slammed against the table causing it to crack. A man in golden armor stood tall with the symbol of the magistrate carved into his chest plate. He leaned in to me and stared hard.
    "I don't like it when people start talking about breaking in to the magistrate!"

    It is morning by the time I arrive at the house again. I peer through the window and to my surprise I see no one.
    I squint and flow underneath the door into the room and look around. It is a "cozy" room with only one window and a desk across from the unmade bed.
    I flow to the bed and put my hand on it.
    Still warm
    I flow back outside and touch my snake shaped amulet; the eyes begin to glow as well as my normal red eyes.
    My vision is imminently attacked by an array of colored mists and shapes. I drag my finger along the snake’s body, eliminating all the weaker trails from my vision until only the strongest remains.
    A single blue glowing trail leads away from the room and out into the street that is already being covered by people eager to make the most of the day.
    I return only my cloak to mist, revealing my black pants, vest, and white shirt. I run my hand through my short blond hair and sigh, relieved at finally being able to let my head breath.
    I let out on a faint smile as I begin to follow the trail through town on foot.

    "Listen sir," I mumble. "We've got no intention of trying to break into any place, that would be against the law and we are humble citizens that wouldn't endanger the populace by breaking a law put into establishment by an officer such as yourself. We were simply speaking hypethetically."
    "Do you really think I'm that stupid?" The guard said angrily.
    "I was really hoping so, since most of your men can't tell the ass end of a donkey from your face." I Smriked and ducked under the table from the swing that the guard threw. I popped up with the table on my back, slamming it into his chin and sending him tumbling backwards. He hit another table and broke through it, the ale spilling into his eyes.
    "FUUUUUUUUUUUUU-" He screamed in pain as the crystals in the dwarven ale torn at his eyes.
    "Right i think we should be going." I grabbed Silla by the hand and sprintedout the door and down the street, a fleet of guards following us from the tavern.
    "GODS DAMNIT SHEN! Why do you always get me into these frickin things." Silla yelled
    "Shut up and run!" I yelled. I turned my to see how many of them were following us. Five and another group was heading down an allyway to get ahead of us. BAM! I smash hard into someone and hit the ground in pain, but Im up within seconds. "Sorry," I stop and look at the man wearing a white long sleeve collared shirt, a nice vest and black pants. "Do I know- HOLY SHIT!" I notice the guards before i finish the sentence and I sprint to catch up with Silla, pushing people out of the way.

    I sit there on my bottom and finally get a good look at his face. He wastes no time in getting up and running off in a hurry.
    "This situation seems oddly familiar, all it's missing are the...”
    As I say this several guards run past chasing and yelling after the man.
    "Pursuing guards..."
    I stand up and look past the crowd at Shen's receding back and the bright blue glow coming from his bag. I wear a difficult face and sigh at the realization that the "Shen" that was mentioned earlier was in fact the same Shen I feared it was.
    "I'm going to have to save him aren’t I?" I say to no one in particular.
    "He probably deserves to get caught..."
    "It's been years since I last saw him..."
    "My only concern should be the cat..."
    I give off a few reasons as to why I should just sit back and watch even though I already know what I was about to do.
    "... Shit." I say with a defeated expression.
    I jog into a nearby alley and burst into mist. I quickly ascend and then fly over the roof tops to the head of the pack and scan the path ahead from the sky.
    "There... onto that... and over..."
    I quickly plot out a quick path and fly under a door to a two story building at the beginning.
    I reform myself on the other side and unlatch the large wooden door, ignoring the screams of the scared and surprised woman behind me.
    The door makes a large creaking noise as I quickly open it.
    "Shen, this way! I yell very loudly to the fleeing man and woman.
