My Spiral Mission: Protector of the Lore [Chapter 11]

Contact Central City

“Hey guys,” Jeremy called out to his friends. He sat down at an empty chair and watched them wolf down several ‘ugly cupcakes’

“Yo Jeremy!” Aaron Dawn hollered. The others said their greetings as well, but they had their mouth full and they weren’t understandable. They were all wearing sweaters that had a star on the left shoulder and each a different color.

“How did you guys get here?” Jeremy asked after they were all done eating. They looked up at him like he was crazy or delusional.

“Teleporting. How else?” Mary Hexcaster answered. They all chuckled and they eyed the last ugly cupcake in the middle. Jeremy couldn’t care less for the ugly cupcake.

“That’s not what I meant… What happened?” He continued. Some looked back at Jeremy and shrugged others were thinking, trying to remember while a few stayed fixated on the ugly cupcake. Jeremy got up, took the cupcake and took a giant bite of it. The ones who were fixated gaped as their last snack was devoured.

“No one told us anything,” Sierra Blade finally answered while others nodded, “they said we could stay here for the time being and work on our magic.”

“Speaking of working on our magic, we need to get to class guys.” Matt chimed in.

“Class?” Jeremy asked.

“Yes, class. You know, where you learn things?” Matt taunted, “come on! We’re going to be late!”

They agreed and got up dumping their trash. They walked off to their assigned classroom Matt still taunting Jeremy while the others laughed.

“Now that we got that settled,” Fallon chuckled as Cassie threw away the last of the popcorn, “we should contact Central city.”

“Ugh, I hate dealing with Lord RettSej.” Angel put in.

“We know, Angel.” Cassandra answered, “But there’s no denying the fact that we need to join forces if we want to succeed.”

Angel huffed a “fine” and watched as Alric typed in some keys and a projection of a dark haired woman with emerald eyes appeared in the middle of the table.

“Hello Lady Aivil,” Kevin greeted.

“Hello there, Mr. Battleblood,” Lady Aivil answered and she noticed Angel sitting on the other side, “and hello Sir Winterbreeze.”

“Hi,” Angel huffed, and looked away.

“You know, the offer still stands.” She affirmed, her eyes stayed in his direction still with her smile plastered on her face.

“I know, and my answer remains the same,” He replied. With that her smile faltered and returned her attention to Kevin. Kevin cleared his throat and spoke.

“We would like to speak to Lord RettSej,” Kevin asked.

“What for?” She questioned, “You do realize we are in the middle of being under siege. He is busy with other matters.”

“This is also about the siege. It’s just as important.” Stephen insisted. Lady Aivil scoffed and replied “I’ll see what I can do.”

The council waited all looking at each other for about 5 minutes until the projection flickered and up came on image of a man with shoulder length dark hair, and yellow eyes. He was dressed in a long dark robe with a few stars and moons decorated on it.

“This is Lord RettSej, Commander of the Union Army of Central city. What do you want?” Lord RettSej boomed.

“Greetings Lord RettSej,” Katherine started, “we have gathered to ask for the status of the situation and to ask for an alliance. It seems that other worlds of the Spiral have also been attacked and it would be in our best interest to work together.” The room stayed silent as they waited for his answer, but when none came from him they urged on.

“We offer our assistance and our expertise in these matters for an alliance. With both our forces combined we can help rid the Spiral of whatever is attacking it.” Alric proposed.

“And what makes you so sure that we need your help?” Lord RettSej questioned.

“We have gotten reports that a few of your citizens have been captured. It is to our knowledge that those that were captured were one of the seven…” Autumn stated while giving a quick glance over to Angel who wasn’t even paying attention. Lord RettSej looked down and pinched the bridge of his nose as in deep thought.

“So, what is your answer, Lord RettSej?” Christina asked, trying to get to the point and not waste any more time.

More silence filled the room. Lord RettSej looked up, his eyes wandered around the room until they landed on Angel for a brief moment and looked back at Kevin. “I’ll get back to you on that…” was all he said, the call ended, and they all gave out an aggravated sigh.
