Auroran Chapter 12Chapter 12
Six weeks passed and neither Suan nor Kate saw each other. While Kate was busy studying and training, Suan was busy helping his sister find a way to stop the war. The two ended up forgetting about each other during the day.
During the passing days, Kate finally conquered controlling her spiritual chamber. She had begun using more difficult and complex skills. Sarah said that she had expected as much since Kate was the Guardian of Light. The spirits were naturally pleased with her progress.
On occasion, when Kate was finished helping around town (a duty that Sarah once did, but concerning she needed practice, she was more than willing to give up this chore), she would go and visit Auroran. Hed been docked in Scarlet the entire time and did not have many visitors. During her visits she informed him on her training and how much she had improved. At first he was upset that he wasnt traini
Auroran Chapter 11Chapter 11
Yawning, Kate tried to keep consciousness as she starred down at the orange paged book in front of her. Sarah had a few classes in the morning, so she had rummaged through the library and pulled out a large stack of books for Kate to look through. They all had the same genre: Spirits. Most were the typical history of spirits, how to do simple spells, and so on.
One particular book that Kate took interest in, described the difference between the Divine Spirits, also known as the Tri-Aura, and the world spirits, such as Acquiesce and Gerad.
Picking up her head, Kate itched her nose as she felt the urge to sneeze. The small pile of books looked as though they came from the oldest part of the Cathedrals library. All of them looked worn, many of their spines were not connected any more, and their titles were peeling off around the edges. When Sarah dropped them on the table a pillow of dust and the smell of aging paper flew into Kates face. Since then the dus
Auroran Chapter 10Chapter 10
Kate gave a deep sigh as she hung herself over the rail of the ship. She had been up all night thinking about the prophecy. It was a dramatic change for her and she didnt know what to think of it.
Staring out to the endless ocean, Kate couldnt help but listen to Suan and Auroran singing a song. Looking over her shoulder she smiled as she saw how happy Suan was. The night before the two of them had argued for a few hours, and all the while he seemed to be distracted with something. At least now he seemed to have forgotten his bad mood, almost like how Kate had.
Leaning on the rail, Kate watched as Neil joined in with the festivities. She couldnt help but laugh at the sight of all three of them enjoying themselves. Smiling she took a deep breath of the salty air and looked towards the horizon.
Hey theres land! she shouted pointing to a large land mass forming in the distance.
Auroran Chapter 9Chapter 9
Kate were not going to chase Gregmor and his fleet! Ive been striving my whole life to stay away from the Navy and their maniacs! And Im not just about to turn myself in! Im a wanted man, if you havent forgotten! You are too if Im not mistaken! Suan yelled crossing his arms in anger.
Auroran and Neil switched their eyes to Kate for the next burst in the argument.
Why not? If what those men said was true, then my dad is probably being held against his will! That imposter could possibly be the one who started the war and is keeping it from stopping. My dad is a genius; its very unlikely that after they hired him eight years ago that he couldnt come up with a strategy that would have solved this whole war problem Kate pleaded helplessly.
Suan stared at her for a moment then shook his head.
Fine you leave me no choice then, she scowled unsheathing her sword and standing in an offens

Dad! Matthews glanced down at the dock to see who had been shouting out. Right at the edge of the dock stood a girl dressed in boys cloths with brownish red hair floating in the wind around her face. For some reason he felt a sudden connection with the girl. She seemed too familiar to him; the stance, the voice, even her physical appearance made his head spin.
Something the matter Matthews? asked a burly voice.
Huh? Oh nothing really he replied.
Whats on your mind?
Oh I just thought I saw a ghost haunting me from my past. It was some girl and she looked just like my late wife .how long are we going to keep up this charade? We all know this war is alive because of us. Stop feeding these lies to the good people of Zephyr. Matthews said in a harsh tone, provoking the man parallel to him.
The man gave an angry glance towards Matthews.
I suggest you learn your place Matthews;
Auroran Chapter 7Chapter 7
Kate stared into a small but warm fire as she waited for Suan and Neil to return. It was dinner time and Kates stomach was gnawing on its self due to immense hunger. Ever since the ambush in Polaris, the three of them have been traveling together to escape the bounty hunters. This was extremely hard on Suan since this meant that he would have to dock Auroran somewhere and just leave him idle; and alone. The whole crew was sent away as well; except for Kate who had no choice but stay, and Neil because he was Suans best friend.
Three months had passed since she was first taken away from Scintilla. Three months since she first met Suan on the bounty ship, and escaped the prison with him. Three months since she first started living the life of a Pirate. A life she never thought shed live.
It was a very hard transition for her, but luckily Suan, Auroran, and Neil all made it easy and enjoyable. In one instance, Kate had to learn how to work the sa

The Prophecy Begins
The next day Kate dressed in her second set of work cloths and walked down to the mess hall for breakfast. Entering she was greeted by Neil and was offered to him. Yawning she walked over sat down across from him.
You look tired. He smiled taking a gulp of hot tea from an old white mug.
And sore, cleaning Auroran is going to due me in if Im not careful! Kate whined as she rubbed her thighs.
Well then, the more reason for you to accompany me to town. Tea? Neil offered.
Huh?....oh, yes please. Town? Why do we need to go to town? she asked as he tipped a mettle tea pot.
Well last night Suan noticed that were lower on provisions than we thought. Suan needs some one to help him gather the supplies, and that some one needed to be trustworthy. We both thought that you would do. Neil explained holding out the hot cup of tea to Kate.
I suppose Kate yawned as she
Auroran Chapter 5Chapter 5
The next morning, Kate awoke to the smell of salty air and the warm sun stretching across the room. She was given the first mates quarters, kindly given up by Neil. Though she had insisted that he should stay in the room, but the two threatened her by saying she would be thrown over board; by that, Kate immediately took the room. Only to find out later that they were only joking.
The room was only large enough to fit a small dresser, desk, and a single bed. The furniture along with the room was made of wood. The only color provided was from the quilted sheets on the bed and the ancient maps of islands and fortresses that hung on the wall.
Not having a change of cloths, the only thing Kate could do was wash up a little and combed her hair. Then going to the window, Kate wiped away some of the mist to look outside. It appeared that they had arrived at a small port over night.
Picking her dagger up and strapping it to her waist, Kate stepped out onto the deck; it was

An Identity and Auroran
It looks to me that you didnt need our help my friend said a man as he welcomed Zack with a manly hug.
Ah well, if it werent for Kate here Id still be in a cell Neil Zack smiled as he gestured towards Kate.
A girl? asked Neil curiously raising an eyebrow.
Yes, it was her brains that got us out of the bloomin place. Zack beamed.
Well as long as your back, we dont know what we would have done without our captain.
Captain? Kate asked in surprise.
Yes, didnt Suan tell you? Neil asked in reply.
He told me his name was Zack she answered crossly folding her arms.
Ah, there in lies the tale, Suan smiled. I do a number of missions, I love danger you see, and I take on aliases when I do them, always hiding my true identity. Since you were hiding your background, I did the same only to be safe. He paused and l
