The city of Hope possesses a long history. Some scholar say that was founded by the first men having runs away from the tyranny of the gods. Other thinkers say that the Wise King would have been born in this city and that he would have create the art to cultivate here. In any event, it was an important city in all the Desolate Lands. Today, it is the shadow of her former glory. This city was managed by the Stone clan. Just like its city the clan was in his twilight. Numerous conflict had forced to kneel down this Titan who formerly prosper was now ruined. However, the leaders of this old clan had not said their last words. Indeed, the former generation of the clan based their hope on the new generation. The current patriarch has three children, two sons and one girl. Three children was triplets. The elder son was Kayne, the second daughter was Eve and the last one was Abel three children had reached the peak of body refining at the age of nine years old. Other talented children were present in the clan. However, our hero had reach the summit of this stage of cultivation had thirteen years old .This result pretty was good. Ark is the son of Sam the doorman. Doorman's role goes back to the foundation of the Stone clan. it is passed on from father to son. This role symbolizing the last rampart of the clan was now a subject of mockery. There were two reasons for this Sam was a weak cultivator. Thus he is a none capable of protecting the clan. In the clan there was a proverb "a simple breeze and the doorman vanish". The second reason of this lack of respect was a wife. Sam had fallen in love with a beautiful woman. When they were young, an engagement had been made. However, the day of the awakening when the talent of Sam was revealed and the talent the girl was known. It was the end of their love story. The girl left to go in a big sect. she left him with a son arises from their final act of love. However, Ark was the pride of his father. He was hard-working, brave, rather talented, and a good boy. Our two protagonists was in the courtyard of the house of the doorman. A young man rather attractive was in the middle of practice. He was striking a punch bag with a regular rhythm. A middle-aged man was behind him.
"Ark you can stop practicing.You have to not push yourself too hard. After all tomorrow is the day of the awakening. "
"Yes father. " says the teenager.
"How do you feel ? stress? Enthusiast?" Asks the father
"A little both. I admit that I'm afraid." says the boy the head lowered
"It is normal but know that the result doesn't matters to me I always love you son ." says Sam with big smile
The next day, under a blazing sun an assembly of young boys and girls were gathered in the room of the spirits. The youngest was nine years old and the oldest was sixteen years old. There were about forty children. On a stage throne the head of the clan, the elders and the supervisors of the clan.
"Today is a big day for you and for the clan. Some of you shall become dragons among men and the others shall remain carps." says the leader of the clan.
In front of the crowd there was Kayn, Eve and Abel. Ark was a little more in the back. He had the hands full of sweat. He turned his head and see his father make him a small sign of head and a smile. He made a small sign in return. The patriarch continued its speech.
"The day of the awakening is separated in two parts. The first part concern the evaluation of the talent. There is various rank of spiritual roots : red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and purple. Knowing that red is worst and most purple is the best . Some spiritual roots can absorb of the ki with a type of an element. But it is very very rare. The second part of the ceremony will be the call of your spirit guardian. A spirit guardian can help you to feel the qi around you. The more his rank is high, the more your connection with the natural qi will be strong. The rank of the spirits guardian goes of one star to seven stars. Nevertheless, to be able to awaken a spirit, is needed one spiritual roots of green rank. It is very rare that a spirit guardian awaken with a red root. They exist four classes of spirit guard: object, animal, elementary, and humanoid." The patriarch scraped its throat and continued by saying
"I spoke enough, that the day of the awakening begins !" He says with a powerful voice.
