“Well at least I managed to shatter that spar thing,” Ophelia said. “How long…” she trailed off without finishing the question but he knew what she was asking.

“Hmm… if we didn’t have this stopgap potion you’d only have a few hours. With it you probably have a day or two before it loses effectiveness and you lapse into a coma. I’d be amazed if we don’t have an antidote by then.” Read the rest of this entry »

All through the teleport Ophelia could feel an icy cold spreading out from the wound. By the time their feet touched the grass of the park her legs wouldn’t support her and she sank to her knees.

“I’m sorry,” she mumbled. “I was too slow.” Read the rest of this entry »

A/N:  Check out my latest blog post with various updates.

Once again the Kithreian managed to leap out of the way. His eyes fixed on the Key as he turned to face her again.

“Ah! I see! You’re a thief using Andarian-mirian’s property. A clever thief to work out how to use it. A talented thief to be able to use it at all. But you’re still a thief and thieves must be punished. I will prize my mirian’s property from your corpse, girl.” Two blades appeared in his hands and he hurtled towards her seeking to feed them with her blood. Read the rest of this entry »

It nearly worked. It would have worked if he hadn’t turned around in his constant sweep for trouble. As it was she was almost on top of him when he spotted her charging at him. His surprise hindered his ability to get out of the way. He managed to dodge her attack for the most part, but she managed to get a second shot in as she flew past him and catch it across one shoulder with the hammer.

The Kithreian shrieked as if it had been stuck by acid and leapt backwards in a blur of motion. Read the rest of this entry »

“Damn! It’s hot here!” The heat was the first thing Ophelia noticed about the place they’d jumped into. The smell was the second. “Ewww… it stinks.” She wrinkled her nose at the foetid air and looked over at Kira, who was leaning against a tree looking green. “Are you okay?”

“You think it’s bad,” Kira said. “Imagine what’s it like for me. My sense of smell is sharper than yours.” She stood there a moment longer, looking around. “Can you see that crystal thing?” Read the rest of this entry »

“All I want to learn right now is how to go back to sleep,” Kate muttered under her breath before saying. “Sure, if you want.”

“No,” he said. “It’s okay. If you’re tired you should go back to sleep. You can’t be much use to me if you’re exhausted because I’ve pushed you too hard.” Read the rest of this entry »

“What about this morning?” she asked. “Oh, you mean that thing with Ophelia? That girl is a bitch… did you hear what she said to me?”

“I did,” he said. “And she wasn’t wrong. You were behaving as if you didn’t have the wits you were born with. I know you’re cleverer than that, Kate. Why on earth did you attack her in front of a teacher?”

Kate flushed red with embarrassment and looked at the floor. She muttered her answer so quietly that a human wouldn’t of heard it Darlryan had better hearing than that. Read the rest of this entry »

“Kate!” Darlryan had teleported into Kate’s room as soon as he sensed that her father and step-mother were asleep. He smiled as he realised that the only bit of her which was visible above the covers was the top of head. She was surprisingly cute when she slept. She hadn’t stirred so he said her name a little louder and reinforced it mentally.

Part of her face appeared above the covers as she mumbled something about it not being time to get up yet. Better, but she was still sleeping. He waited, but she started to slip back down into a deeper sleep. Read the rest of this entry »

A/N2: Tales of the First now has it’s own site as Patreon wasn’t really suitable and its posting schedule would drown out everything else on here. Why not check it out?

“Hopefully this won’t take too long.” Kira faced Ophelia across the training room, tossing a silver fireball from hand to hand as she spoke. “Especially since the Key already knows how to do it. We’ll try it with you concentrating just on shielding first. If you manage to deflect ten attacks in a row we’ll move onto something trickier. Tell me when you’re ready.”

“I know,” Kira said. “Midnight at the latest, I think.”

“Yikes! That’s a bit hairy,” Sera said. “Sometimes mum and dad aren’t even in bed by then, let alone asleep.”

“Sheesh! Parents!” Ophelia pulled a face. “Will you illusions cover this situation, Kira?” Read the rest of this entry »
