I raised my sword, poising to block the attack when a spell from my back
flew in front of me. "Aqua Splash!" *Splash* "Razael! Are you alright?" a
familiar voice came from behind me. "What is happening?!" when I looked
back, it was Thea and Sol, coming to my aid. "Yes, I thought I was done
for." "You really can't help yourself huh Raza?" says Thea with a smile
"Sorry to trouble you guys." "You could've just dodged or reflected it you
know, it's just a tier-2 magic, why didn't you?" Sol ask with confusion, "If I
dodged it, someone behind me could've got hurt, if I reflected it back, the
kid might get burned, so I didn't." I replied with a smile "It's scary how
kind you are, you know." He replied as he scratches his head. "Well, thank
you guys, I'll wrap things up now, Thea, could you take care of the child?"
"Sure! Snow Shell!" she covers the child with a barrier of ice, the nobles
are surprised to see the spell. "A Tier-3 Combination magic?! You're just a
commoner, a peasant!" "Enough of your words! Fenrir Enchant: Shadow
Step!" Sol Enchants himself and knocked down the other nobles. "What
kind of spell is that? Since when did you become so many?!" says the
noble with a shaking voice, "I can't believe this, Multi enchant: Duplication,
Flame Blast!" The noble cast multiple copies of his spell and directed it to
me. "I can see through your spells! Chrono Enchant: Analyze!" as the fireball
fly through the air, I looked into the spell and tried to decipher it "Hmm, I
see, so this is the composition." Counter spell: Spell Mirror! "Here goes
nothing! Please don't mess up!" Multi enchant: Duplication, Flame Blast!" as
I cast the same spell, it negated the spell that the noble casted. "Alright! It
worked! I actually pulled it off!" "IMPOSSIBLE! Who are-?!" But before he
could finish his sentence I used a physical skill to close up on him in an
instant. "Sonic Step!" "What?! you can use Physical Skills too?!" "I'm Razael
of the Crossed Titans, The Mimic!" I said as I pointed my sword to his
face. "The mimic? Wait, I know you! You are that commoner who took all
the classes in the academy! You just mastered the basics of it! You can't
even cast Tier-2 spells at the graduation! You're skills are mediocre! How
did you overpower me?!" yelled the noble in disbelief "Honestly I can't, but
the tier-1 Chrono Enchant: Analyze spell can see what is the basics of a
spell, which helps the tier-1 Counter spell: Spell Mirror to copy up to tier-2
spells. But if you threw a tier-3 or 4 I would've been on the ground
instead of you." The noble smirked at me with crazed eyes "HA! Saying
your weakness to your enemy, you sure have guts! Salamander Breath!"
*Poof* "What?!, why can't I cast any spells?! Fire Shot! Flame Blast!" says
the confused noble "You're mana got depleted, idiot, for a noble you sure
are dumb." Says Thea as she tends to the beaten child. "You will pay for
this!" he yelled as he ran away with his friends.
"Are you alright?" Thea asks, "You're awesome as usual Razael! Way to
go!" Sol Replied Smiling, "O Healing winds, heed my call, bless me with
your curing touch, Recovery!" "We should send him to the orphanage. It's
dangerous for him to wander around here." Sol and Thea Nodded. And so
before we go home, we left him at the orphanage. "We're gonna be in so
much trouble once we get home." Sol says, obviously nervous. "Well, at
least no one is hurt, right Raza?" Thea says while smiling at me. "Let's just
hope captain won't scold us that much."
Later that evening. We were summoned to the captains office, "YOU IDIOT
KIDS!!!." Captain yelled with full force, it made the guild shake "WE'RE
SORRY" we said in unison. "WHY THE HELL DID YOU FIGHT WITH NOBLES?!
DIDN'T I TOLD YOU ENOUGH?!" "But Captain! They we're ganging on a poor
child in an alley, and I heard the child call for help so…" I replied to the
furious Captain. "Razael, I don't understand why you go such lengths just to
help others, you have talent, but you're not that good at spells, you got
lucky today, what if you failed that? You could've died, or you could've
killed that noble!" Captain replied. "The captain has a point, I'm a mimic, I
can copy anything with my unique analyze enchant, but that's it, I'm decent
with swords, and that's it, spells are another thing. "
*Sigh* "Why do you even do this Razael? Why are you so ready to sacrifice
yourself for others?" captain asked me with concern written all over his
face. "I do it because I want to be like him." Captain looked at me,
smiling. "Listen here kiddo, We all know how great of a person Fedel is,
and we still can't get over his lost, but, do you really think this would
make him happy? His adoptive son hurting himself every time he helps
everyone?" captain spoke with sad eyes. "Sir Fedel… he took me in when I
was wandering the town with Thea as a child, he raised us just like his
own children. He left us in the guild for protection during the war, but he
never returned after." He then Glared at Sol. "And what do you have to say
for yourself foolish son of mine?" captain looked with fire in his eyes "Eh?!
Uh… I just helped Razael cause he got in trouble!" Sol nervously replied.
"And you missy?" he asks Thea. "It's the same as Sol's answer captain!"
She replied with sweat rolling down her face. "The Association contacted
me about this. And to be honest, I wasn't surprised." The captain said with
a smile on his face. "BUT YOU KEEP HARBORING BAD REPUTATION FOR
OUR GUILD!! AS YOUR PUNISHMENT, YOU THREE WILL BE WASHING THE
DISHES FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK!" Yelled captain. "YES! CAPTAIN!" we
answered in chorus. "Man this sucks, our members eat a lot." Sol says
enthusiastically. "I'm really sorry guys, I keep on dragging you with my
problems." "It's alright Raza, we wanted to help anyway, it's not like we
we're forced to, right Sol?" Thea Asks with a grin. "Yeah! So there's
nothing to worry about, except the dishes." "Sol you lazy bum, we always
washed the dishes back then, so its going to be a piece of cake!" Thea
yelled as she tried to cheer us up. After we washed the dishes, we cleaned
up and rest for the rest of the evening, and another day passed us by.
The next day, we visited the orphanage where we left the child yesterday.
"Is the child doing well sister?" Thea didn't waste anytime and asked that
question already, I didn't even get to greet the sister properly. "She is fine
Thea, but she is still resting in her chamber." Sister replied "I'm sorry for
her rudeness sister. She is very worried for the child you see." "It is alright
Razael, besides, We are like family, so I don't mind." Sisters told me with
reassurance. The children we're eating when we came in, they stared at us
for a moment, then out of nowhere, *Thud* "Big Brother Raza!!" the
children rushed to me, and I fell on the floor with them, laughing with
them as we fool around. "Now now children, finish you food first before
playing with Razael." "Yes Sister!" the children went back to the table.
"They really love you huh Raza? And sister, to follow you so quickly…"
Thea mumbles to herself with a depressed expression. The children at the
orphanage love to tease Thea, but they like her a lot as well. "It's because
I love them too, that's why they are obedient, plus they are really well
mannered." Sister says proudly. "Let us go to her room then." Thea says
with excitement. "Okay okay, follow me upstairs then."
When we entered the room, the child we saved yesterday was awake, she
was sitting on the bed, looking out the window. "Oh! you are awake now!
Well, im the Sister who runs the orphanage." Sister says with excitement,
but the child barely responded, "Anyway this are the two that saved you
yesterday. Be sure to thank them properly, excuse me while I get you
some porridge and milk." Sister went out the door and walked down the
hall humming, she was in a pretty good mood. "Hello! How are you
feeling? Does it hurt anywhere?" Thea asked her with questions, but to no
avail, she wasn't responding to her, Then I tried talking to her. "Hello, My
name is Razael, I'm sorry if I didn't get to you right away yesterday." The
child then looks at me, teary-eyed. "It was painful isn't it?" she nodded,
still looking at me. "It was scary too?" she nodded again, but now with
tears flowing down her cheeks. "Don't worry, you are safe now, no one
will hurt you anymore." She started crying more and more while holding
onto my arm tightly. She was so hurt and frightened, the same way I was
when I was still a child.
I was very powerless as a child, I can't protect my mother, I can't help my
father. When we were little, Thea and I got bullied by nobles too, I will try
and protect Thea but I'll just get beat up, sometimes Thea even protects
me from our bullies, it was a pathetic sight to behold. Since we have no
home, nor parents, no one would protect us but ourselves, I saw myself in
her yesterday, crying for help, eyes that have no light in them. That's why
I helped her as soon as I saw her. She is just a child but she went through
a lot already. And this is all I can do, to thank Sir Fedel, by doing the
same thing he did for us back then.
She fell asleep after we talked a little bit more. She told us her name,
Mara, and she was sold by her uncle to the nobles that beat her up
yesterday. Her parents abandoned her when she was little, and her uncle
just kept her because of the profit one day he will get from her. She was
sold to be a slave, the nobles beat her up because she accidentally spilled
coffee on a nobles vest. What cruel fate was bestowed upon her, but now,
she is safe, and she is fed, we talked more about her past, and she was
teary-eyed while she recall those memories, she thanked me and Thea for
yesterday and after she ate her food, she is slept with a smile on her face.
We walked around town afterwards and saw a parade, our king was
passing by from his voyage from another country. It was a march of
spearmen, knights and wizards guarding his majesty's carriage. "What a
sight to behold huh Raza?" Thea says with stars shining in her eyes. "Don't
get too excited okay? After this we should go to the armory and get our
supplies." We started going to the armory district to get our equipment
repaired. As I entered the shop the blacksmith was there, seemingly waiting
for our arrival. *Chime* "Welcome! Oh it's you guys! I've been waiting for
you!" the blacksmith seems pretty "Heya Uncle Drevor, what's up?" Thea
says with a smile. The shop is full of new equipment and supplies "Is there
anything you would recommend for us today mr. Drevor?" I asked politely.
"There is! I actually held on to this." As he said that, he immediately pulled
out a box, the first thing he pulled out was an emerald necklace, "Chrono
Enchant: Analyze" I scanned the item, it can enhance healing magic, it's
pretty high in quality and beautiful too. "This is for you missy! The traders
took a liking to you, they said it was a gift for helping them fix their
wagon!" Drevor looks really pleased as we saw Thea's face lit up. "Aww,
they shouldn't have! It's very sweet of them!" While Thea is still looking at
the necklace, Drevor pulled another item from the box.
"Lad, they found this while they were travelling across the border…" it was
an Aegis, It's all beat up, but it's enchanted with a tier-5 spell, Thea, who
was so happy moments ago changed her stance after seeing the weapon.
"Could it really be?! No… no!" "Raza…" Thea held onto my sleeve, holding
her tears back. As for me, I don't want to believe it, but it is the same
Aegis Sir Fedel wields. I fell unto my knees, Thea was crying besides me
too. After we collected our selves, we carried the items to the guild. Sol
was waiting at the entrance and with one look, he immediately knew what
news has come to us. We held a ceremony for Sir Fedel in the Guild and
Captain Tempest Cleaned the Aegis personally to check if it is really his.
And it really belonged to sir Fedel, he really is gone, the man who saved
us is gone, forever.
