Chapter 1.Our tale begins in a dieing land of men on the island of Maria. Almost all resources of the this land have been wasted by the men over war and conflict. The only awnser to peace is a new beggining.
"I heard once again the Arthans are marching towards us for more gold. I wonder, what havent they made out of gold, goblets, swords, armor, houses. There stinking rich and expect us to have more gold each day." said Richard smashing away at the stone beneath him.
"You should fight em off one day you know. Come on 1 on 400 not including there town militia and and gold smiths, probally to distracted by there shinys to even notice there town wall blown away by your mining skills." his brother Don said wiping the sweat of his head.
They both spent another hour, no gold, but happy to be done and over with. The two brothers decided to visit the shore to look at the ocean.
"You know I heard once that the king almost made something to float on the water, he called it a gold." said Richard.
"Figures" laughed Don "whats he gonna do? float to the end of the world and look underwater for the gold he needs, theres bound to be some down there you know."
"You know I wouldn't mind being on the gold one day, I think it would be cool to leave this horrible place. Even if I fell overboard and drowned. It would be a whole lot better than this."
said Richard staring at the open blue.
"You gotta be kidding me! Helping the king as it is now you wanna throw your life away on a gold to hopefully pull in some gold from the bottom of the ocean." yelled Don at the seemingly stupid idea.
Why would you want to go on a gold brick looking for gold in the middle of the water. Now if you think about that even better visualize it. You can see why it sounds stupid. Thought Don still staring at the buetiful blue sea.
"Wake up Don!" yelled Richard.
Don got up from bed and stared at the night sky still dizzy from waking up so early.
"The king tried his device again, and guess what!!!" he said Richard
"He floated away from us to drown and look for the gold on a brick of lead." he said Don.
"Nope, he floated about 10 feet away on a Gold piece of brick than drowned. The idiot couldn't swim with the extra 20 pounds of puffy gold studded clothing. Doubt he couldve even swimmed without it with all the fat on him. Long sink the King" Richard sang happily.
Just than an Arthan knight walked in, and he wasn't in the cherry singing mode at the time. All Don could think was run... Than something amazed him, nearly shocked him to death.
"Ahhh..." said the guard.
Blood dripped on the floor as the guard collapsed.
A stone tipped arrow was sticking directly in his chest. Not a bad shot.
Not the only roblem though. The brothers heard an bow getting pulled back, and from there point. That was the only guard in the area.
You guessed it a arrow smacked straight into the ground between the 2 brothers. Not bad marksmanship, I should really get him as a trainer if aint dead by noon.
Not the only thing they noticed about the arrow was that had a stone tip this time. It had a letter attached.
Being the only one who could read this ancient text Richard took the letter.
Due siete in pericolo grave sul terreno che vi levate in piedi.
Cadere tutte le armi che potete avere e punto fuori della tenda.
Qualche cosa eroico ed il vostri entrambi guasti. Un tir indietro dell'arco è tutto che abbia bisogno di.
Not being the best reader he could only understand certain parts.
"It says bring out our weapons and get ready to help him defeat the toilet kitty from Pakistan."
said Richard proud of his work.
His brother stares at him blankly.
"Well I say we go out unarmed. If we seem threatening he may shoot another arrow, and it might not be in the ground." says Don.
"And what happens if the toilet kitty attacks his with the plunger. Man I say we take the guards sword just in case." said Richard.
"Ok, one that has to be the dumbest thing I have heard all day other then the king trying to swim for gold. Two we might seem threatening to the archer. Three with that accuracy im sure were fine from the toilet kitty." Don said.
"Fine, if we die, its your fault. No weapons. I guess we be nice for present times. Sides I have always wanted a kitty." said Richard happily.
They exited the place looking around for the archer of great skill, and looking even harder for a toilet kitty.
"Hello" a shaded figure jumps down from the roof.
"You people, of all people I have helped have to be the most stubborn of them all. All I wanted was to get you out of the house. I hate houses. I can't stand in one never know whats hiding in em." the shaded figure said as he unhooded his mask.
Long white hair, not really white. Silverish.
I need to die mine that color some day thought Don.
"So we safe with the toilet kitty if im right. I mean nothing is gonna shoot plungers at me with a longbow." said Richard still unsure if he was safe.
The silver haired person stared at him almost exactly as Don had.
"Ok one, learn to read it does help, two what the heck is a toilet kitty? Where are you getting this..." said the silver haired person still staring.
"The note you shot at us. It said something about toilet kitties from Pakistan." Richard said.
"Ohh, the note that read
You two are in grave danger on the soil you stand. Drop all weapons you may have and step outside the tent. Anything heroic and your both dead. One bow pull back is all I will need.
what is a pakistan, and where does it mention a kitty. That is what I would like to know." the silver haired said.
"Well moving on, if you two dont mind im gonna get us somewhere safe. Prefferebly to my camp in the woods." the silver haired person says "and my name is Marin, should save the author some trouble."
They both stare at Marin.
"What just trying to get some decent parts for myself." he smiles at the sky. A thumbs up cloud appears. Whos this author thought Don, he obviously has alot of power...
"Moving along, let us get to my village before noon when the knights will be up asking for 2X the gold for there kings death. They will more than likely punish the villagers." he says as he walks into the woods. The two brothers follow baffaled. So far a very odd day...
