About this creation
I was about to follow Tabaris when Mornie Utulie asked me something: “You sure this is the one that sent the message?”
“I don’t know. You know that he’s the only shot we got.”
I then followed Tabaris to the end of the tunnel. “Prepare yourself for a long walk. With a bit of luck we can get to HQ at the end of today. At least, that is if you aren’t too tired.”
“Tired. Me? Sorry but you are running low on stamina, while I can still run for miles.”
“Let’s put that to the test then, shall we? You get a head start of 20 seconds. I’ll be in front in 10 seconds flat. The HQ is in that general direction.”I pointed in North Western direction. “Threetwoone GO!”
And he was off. It was obvious he wasn’t even trying to get much of a lead.
“Is this really smart to do Ryu?” Darakana asked. “GAMI doesn’t like this plan either. And you know how he’s been lately.”
“Oh, well. It happened now didn’t it? Now let me focus on running. You stay close, but unseen. You know how people react when they first see you. You should take a shower, that air is really distracting sometimes.” And I was off. I switched my ‘style’ to Trickster. I fazzed a couple of times to gain. When I was on the 8 second mark I used my Magnetism to manipulate my armor, moving faster and smoother. I took the lead at 10 seconds. “Now what was that again about being exhausted?” I laughed. Tabaris just frowned.
After a couple hours of running, testing his abilities and just racing him. I felt a sting in the back of my eyes. It got worse every time I used my magnetism. I knew something like that would take its toll but I didn’t expect it to come so soon after I learned the trick, a little over a year ago. I decided to check up on that when we reached HQ. Which wouldn’t take too long if we kept this pace. I saw the tips of the mountains already. “I’ll take the lead from here, we are nearly there.” I said. Tabaris just nodded and slowed down just enough to give me the lead. Then he sped up again to keep up with me.
After a couple more minutes of running I slowed down to walking pace. I sent Darakana ahead. “You know what to do. Give GAMI a heads-up we’re coming. I need him to check up on something for me.” “Got it.” Was all of the reply I got and I sensed him speeding up. We were just keeping a normal pace after all.
I waited a couple of moments to let Tabaris catch his breath. “Who was tired and who wasn’t again? Doesn’t matter, follow me.” And I walked past a couple of bushes, straight into a wall only to disappear from sight. I took a few steps and turned to see if Tabaris followed or not. He didn’t. I just put my head outside and said: “Just get on with it? We don’t have all day. You could’ve expected this anyway.” And I got back in.
We walked through the small passage to the base. I let him in front. When we got there I saw him looking in shock. It was quite a sight, even for me still. The roof was 5 times higher than an average building. It was quite large to say the least. The room was shaped like a cross.
“Collect your jaw from the ground and follow me.”I casually said and I just walked along. People were watching me. Wondering about who I brought with. I pointed in Gami’s direction. “There is our blacksmith. You have a talk with him. He knows what to do already. When he’s done, you’ll get your first task of him.” And I just walked away. I had other stuff to do. I had to think. I send a signal to Darakana: “Guard my door. Let nobody through. I need to Meditate.”
I closed the door behind me. Sat down. Started Meditating. “Well, we have a lot to discuss Mornie. Where shall we start? My eyes? They are acting up more and more, you sure you don’t know why?”
Tabaris sat down in front of the screens. “Arthaka is the hint I give. Find the past, Find the Key.” Tabaris said to himself “That’s all he said to me when he was done. I wonder…”

Really awesome ! I'm guessing the main character will be going to Arthaka ?! That would be sick ! I really like where this story is going, and your writing style is pretty good too :)
Nope, main characters are allready in the story. Just you wait ;)
