The Little Orphan chapter 21Category: The little orphan story

It has been a week since Mana and Eichiro went to see Queen Arisa. Mana's training continued with Fishi, and Fishi continued to push her to her limits. She always made sure that Spirit came along, as a lot of this magic was more secretive in her language, and Mana seemed that she couldn't speak the language without a sprite nearby. Sometimes Etsuya would come along too and help them. Her friends seemed to have no trouble finding things to do either. Shiki always talked with Hiki. No matter how hard they tried, she could not wrap her head around their similarities. Hanako, the girl that they found in the rocky mountains, had stayed with them the whole time, but she was always ignored. Since nobody really knew her, she had nearly dissapeared. That's when Sera stepped in. She made sure Hanako wasn't left out, and they became instant friends. There was never Hanako without Sera.Mana actually started feeling left out. Recently, Sera and Hana, as she was more commonly called, met Michi, an elf who taught their traditional dances. Sera and Hana joined her class, and they enjoyed themselves tremendously. Hana was a bit more graceful then Sera though, Mana noticed. She didn't say anything about it. Mikan was getting along famously with Kiyomi. They were both different and somewhat handicapped, and they became great friends. Kiri and Takuya mostly stayed to themselves, not trusting anybody else. Mana guessed that their FBI training had paid off. Ato would always be talking with Etsuya. He always seemed to be trying to pry knowlege from him, never having enough. Mana thought that it was a bit odd for Ato to be behaving this way. He would also spend a lot of time staring at Sera, struggling to dance. Mana wasn't sure if he had feelings for her, or if he was just laughing at her clumsiness. Eichiro would spend most of his time with Taheiji. They seemed unseperatable. She assumed that he was still glad to have his freedom back. Yet, Mana could always feel a certain sadness with him. Was it about this girl from the moon isles? Mana hated it when he was depressed. On the 8th day after the meeting with Arisa, Fishi started teaching Mana and Spirit about defence against other magical attacks. If an opposite spellcaster has read your spell, and they counter by blocking, they would have to wait out the opponents spell. Depending on the spells strength, it could last from a minute to an hour to even a day. No spellcaster has lasted more then 25 hours without using all of his energy, and therefore, dying. Fishi would cast attacks, and Mana would have to block them and last as long as she could. At first, she could only last a measaly 2 minutes, which greatly dissapointed Fishi. Detirmined, Mana kept trying, eager to get as strong as possible. 2 minutes turned to 5 minutes, then to 10 minutes. By the 9th day, Mana could last 45 minutes. Fishi seemed a bit more impressed, but kept telling Mana that she could do a lot better with practice. Mana started getting sick of this. The exersize was exausting, and Mana passed out a few times trying to beat her current record. In these cases, Fishi would spalsh a bit of water from his fishbown onto Mana, bringing her to. Mana wasn't overly fond of this, but it kept her up and at it. the next day, Mana and Fishi continued the training. Mana was detirmined to beat her record of 45 minutes. 30 minutes...40 minutes... Thud. Mana is startled out of her spell. Thud. Fishi too stops his spell, also shocked. Thud. Mana and Fishi looked up to see Taheiji above them. And coming down fast. He would've landed on Mana and Fishi if they hadn't moved fast enough. He landed with a boom, shaking thr ground, and not bothering to slow down. Eichiro was on his back, a look of urgency covering his face. "Your majesty, What is going on? What's happened?" "Chinatsu came to the hut and said that Queen Arisa had bad news. I thought Mana should come." Mana nodded, and eagerly hopped onto Taheiji's back, glad to be away from constant training for a few hours. "Then I'll go too. I'm a good friend of Arisa, and I must see if there is anything I can do to help." Fishi led his fishbown up to Mana, and she grabbed the vase, making sure she was holding on tight as Taheiji took of hastily. * They quickly arrived at the castle, and made their way to Arisa's throne room. Arisa was pacing back and forth, panicing. She quickly notices the three. "Oh, you're here. I've gotten news from the west. Shikuro is going to the moon isles to get a new apprentice a dragon! It's bad enough that he has a dragon, but with another dragon, there is no way to tell what he'll do!" He has a dragon? Great. Mana thought. She looked at the other two. Their faces were a mix or worry and shock. Eichiro looked away from Mana, trying to hide something. Did Arisa's mention of the Moon Isles get him thinking about this girl she knew nothing about? But she was still examining the situation. How am I suppost to fight two dragons? If that isn't bad enough, Eichiro could get sidetracked from the job we have to do, with this Muskinatu he knows. "We have to go and stop them!" Everyone was jolted by Eichiro's sudden responce. Every eye turns to him. "Your majesty, Mana hasn't finished her trainging with me yet! She's not ready to take on Shikuro!" Fishi with a bit of rage. "She can learn along the way, can't she?" "Well, what about her companions? They've been dawtling their days away, having nothing to do. They don't know a thing about fighting!" Eichiro paused. "You're right. I shouldn't have jumped to conclusions." He looked away from everyone. I'm pretty sure he's trying to find exuses to go see Muskinatu. "No, you have a point." All eyes turned to Arisa, who had just spoken. "We have to act quickly, but not instantly. We should spend the next while training Mana's friends for battle before you depart." Everyone soon agreed, and Arisa dismissed them. Mana, Eichiro, and Fishi all got onto Taheiji, and flew back to Giaga. * When the three got back, they seperated and went to tell the group. Mana foudn Sera and Hana practicing with Mishi, and told them the news. They didn't seem to mind. They seemed like they were bored. Shiki had a bit of a problem when Mana told her and Hiki. Ato seemed glad he would learn to use a weapon other then his pocketknife. So off everyone went to train with different weapons. Sera went to practice with the bow and arrows. She took to it right away. Shiki took to hand-to-hand combat, similar to martial arts. Mana was a bit suprised that Shiki had such ferosity with fighting. She didn't think she could hurt a fly. Kiri started practicing with daggers. She would throw them at logs for distance practice, and used the daggars for close hand to hand combat. Ato took to a weapon much bigger then what he was used to. A hefty two handed broadsword. Mana wasn't sure where Mikan, Takuya,Kiyomi or Hanako went. They must be practicing something that they need to do themselves. Since Mikan was a Péyané, she would probably practice attacks with her wings, Takuya could use his unnatual speed and strength for something. Mana noticed that Takuya had the attributes of an elf. Tall, with a lean figure, great speed and strength. But he wasn't an elf. It didn't make sense. Hanako didn't like fighting, so she'd probably learn about their medicines and healing. And Kiyomi, well, she had no idea at all what she'd do. Eichiro had already mastered magic, so he helped the others with their trainging, including Mana. She asked him about his unique way of spellcasting. He said that the language was used in the royal family for years, and he was one of the few people who still knew it. It also proved connection with the royal family if you knew it. So, he started teaching her the language. It was confusing, but Mana was eager to use magic when Spirit wasn't around. If she wasn't around, she'd have to revert to english, and that wasn't the best idea. There was a sound in a lot of the words that seemed to be used only in arabic. Mana was detirmined to learn it. She also trained with Eichiro with a one handed sword. She liked that type of sword probably from the animes she watched and video games she played. (A/n: Did you see the loZ reference? xD) Mana was suprised at his skill with the sword. She enjoyed sparring with him, but she never beat him at first. They both wore the elf armour that Etsuya had lent them. It was heavy, made for the strong and speedy elves, so they had a bit of trouble sparring. But it would have to do until they got proper armour. The whole time, Mana had been thinking about the situation. Shikuro has a new apprentice? Who on earth could it be? Someone she knew? Just how many apprentices did Shikuro have?

oh yay! *sigh of relief*
I actually thought this might have been a flunk chapter...xD

awsomenesses[defination: way awsome in beyond]

Thanks very much! (wondering what Kirti will say, she says the most
awesomenesses things ever on these chapters!)
Kirti says:   11 September 2008   991519  
Yippee! I always hoped he'd get a dragon!

I mean... Oh no, that evil Naono is getting a dragon... *monotone*
well I tried. Yay it's a great chapter!! I loved the time lapse at the
beginning too. 
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   11 September 2008   519775  
Thanks! It took about a week to get here, so I thought it'd make
sense. xD
You can read me like a book, Kirit. Truely, you can. xD
Maybe that's a bad thing...D:
Kirti says:   11 September 2008   544961  
Speakes to Arisa: Yes that's right. No need to go instantly. Take
your time, really I mean that. Train up all those guys before going
down! No rush in killing, maiming, or crushing the spirets of a
Little-Bit-Evil Orphan.

did you see the next entry too? the little brainstorm thingie?
Do you think people on YouTube would like The Little Orphan?
(currently finding music to put into videos.)
Kirti says:   11 September 2008   983991  
yes they better!

and I was going to it now.
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   11 September 2008   149364  
oh ok 8D
MewMewSugar says:   12 September 2008   378948  
yay mikan!!!whoooo!!! awesome story.
‹Up-in-the-Clouds› says:   12 September 2008   751182  
awesome! ah!! naono's getting a dragon! *runs*
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   12 September 2008   628531  
Mewmew: Thanks 
Sarah: We're all doooooomed!
Who said he was getting one? Mana and co. might get there
before them!
Kirti says:   13 September 2008   328168  
would they really kill all the dragons just to stop Naono from
getting one? O.o

that seems a bit drastic... not to mention cruel... and if that's not
what they plan to do then how're they ganna prevent him from getting a
dragon? And if they aren't going to be killing any dragons why do they
need to learn to fight?

they can't possibly think that a week or two of training is all they
need to go up against Shikuro. I assume he can use magic. Plus as far
as they know his "new assistant" is as powerful as Shikuro himself.
Kirti says:   13 September 2008   181747  
*shuts up before I start thinking any further into this.*
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   13 September 2008   999128  
Who said anything about killing them? I'm not that heartless. O.o no,
I have a much better,and less painful way of dealing with it.

And no, I don't expect them to be able to beat him in a few weeks.
It's just to be able to defend themselves along the way. Remember my
map? It would take weeks in itself just to get there. If they're
ambushed by any badguys, they need to know how to fight in order to
deal with it.
Kirti says:   13 September 2008   411392  
oh right. hey wait a minute doesn't shikuro have a dragon? how're
they ganna beat him there on foot ih he's flying? A dragon can
probably carry a man and a boy but I doubt Taheiji could carry all of
them.... (plus you just said it'd take weeks and there was a
possibility of ambush which leads me to beleive they wouldn't even try
anything but walking...)

argh I'm still over analizing again! Sorry, I know you have a plan
that will make sense once I read it. I'll shut up now.
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   13 September 2008   328595  
lol, you'll just have to wait and see. Stop trying to plan out the
story please. That's my job. D:
and no, Taheiji couldn't carry them all. In fact, he has trouble
carrying three people. But who said they HAD to go by foot. Ever heard
of the anime called a HORSE?
Kirti says:   13 September 2008   418181  
yes I know. I wasn't trying to plan anything, really. If I'm bored
then I'll start thinking and that usually means I think way to
far into things.

I'm sorry.
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   13 September 2008   886775  
It's ok. I can understand.
Rin_Sohma says:   20 September 2008   243496  
Now hug kiss and make up you too! *group higs Kirti and

I now things are still on the rocks with you guys because Kirti would
usualy have post several more times in six days. *I am in Kirti's
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   20 September 2008   216215  
lol xD
Kirti says:   20 September 2008   927322  
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   20 September 2008   971267  
I realise I'm taking SO long on the next chapter...I think I need a
short break from writing it...get my juices back.
Kirti says:   21 September 2008   231268  
alrighty then. I'm pretty sure your fan base can wait.

and if they can't what are they going to do about it?

oh no... they might start fanficing! eeek! (as if I hadn't been
tetering on the edge of fanfiction myself)
Kirti says:   21 September 2008   366926  
Just kidding! I'm sure everyone will wait patiently.
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   21 September 2008   795657  
LOL, yeah. allow me to give you a meter of my creative juices.


There you go, fans. Only a bit longer.
Kirti says:   24 September 2008   337691  
if this'll help your creativity...





snape, snape, severus snape, DUMBLEDORRRR!
Kirti says:   24 September 2008   196172  
or maybe it'll just make you laugh!
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says :   25 September 2008   663564  
Wow, you made my day first thing in the morning!

You have a gift for doing that. You should become a comidian
