New Story

New story I am working on. I started last year but put it aside until my series the Immortal Island was complete. Now that it is I will concentrate on this new Fantasy series. Thought I would share a rough copy of it to you all see what you all think.

Artemis Sloane...
It is dusk when I arrive on this foreign land of Fort Pottersbriar. It is without a doubt, far from the comforts of my home, Ossilia. After gathering my things, I turn to follow the crowd off the boat. I step onto this strange soil that I will briefly call home, pull out a jar as I always do and scoop up a handful of the soil. I rub it between my fingers to get a feel of what the land. The soil is dry considering the ocean is so close. After pouring it into the jar, I seal the lid and pack it away in my bag.
It is a little hobby of mine. I do not stray far from my home but when I do, I always bring back a token, to remind me of that journey. My father would not approve of my decision neither would my brother. Once again however, I am put in a situation that needs rectifying. My mother is ill my father was murder by the very hands of his fellowship and my brother the selfish brute has joined the crusades leaving me to fend our kingdom alone. I trust no one in my father’s kingdom, for they are many traitors. I have dismissed all but a few staff members that I know will never do harm to me or my mother. Finding a strong alley is not easy anymore. The only problem I have now is that the strongest alley I know of, is a very old dear friend of my father. King Edmund Oroth III. His son is soon to take the throne; Prince Edmund Oroth the IV. He is a few years older than I. He is very charming and very much in love with me. My father had arranged our marriage and we were to Wed on my twenty-first birthday. I know it is my duty as his only daughter to marry royalty but I am the only heir left able to take the throne and I had no intentions on marrying. Especially not a man I barely know, besides marriage was never my thing. I did not want to rule the Kingdom, I wanted to defend it. My father would probably turn in his grave if he knew I had taken to the battlefield. I shook off the thought and carried on with my quest.
Instantly I feel a great deal of despair here. It wallows around me like a thick fog. I need to move fast before it overcomes me, as it has the people that live here. I quicken my pace down the dirt road. I click my tongue twice and my familiar, Noir, is at my side. She frightens the other passengers but they settle once she is next to me. She tries her best to behave. Noir is a panther, which is why I gave her such a name, her fur is the colour of midnight and her eyes are as blue as the Anchusa the Blue Angel flower, also known as, forget me not. She is a true gem and I am honoured to have found her. While, being connected, mentally, helps me in many ways, she always senses when I am near and when I am in need. Upon the discovery of my ability to charm animals, I have successfully been able to charm four including Noir. My first was a bear, he was a fierce creature not easily tamed. It took a lot out of the both of us, just to get him under control. He was useful in the end and I set him free. I never keep my familiars longer than I need too. There is always someone out there willing to take on a tame animal as their pet. The second was a tiger, a very feisty one at that. He was easy to tame since I found him at birth abandoned by his mother. I think he was a lot like me in a way, considering I am as feisty as they come. He was injured in battle and since then he stays home. He roams freely but always returns to me by the week’s end. My most cherished familiar was Kiara, she was a leopard a beautiful one at that. If she were human, she would have been my double. Our fighting capabilities were completely synchronized. I never had to question her ability or her loyalty. She stuck by me to the end, when her life was taken, in front of my very eyes. Tears well in my eyes at the thought but I shove my feelings aside, do my best to keep my eyes forward and my mouth shut. I am here for one thing and one thing only, nothing will make me stray from this quest. The only thing that could ruin my chances at succession is my brother and his crusaders. I keep him farthest from my mind because I know not of whereabouts. Nor shall he find me.
I am well suited. My armour is comfortable yet durable in battle. Gwendolyn the blacksmith from back home, altered it perfectly for my, well-endowed figure. I can still master a bow like the best of them, sometimes far better. The mask I wear is of tough dark leather and I tie it tight against my face. All they will see are my piercing blue eyes, which is all I want seen of me. I keep my hair tied back tight so that it does not interfere with my line of sight. The fur that accents my armour is of my last familiar Kiara, in memory. She perished in our last battle together long before arriving here.
No matter what I did, I could not prevent her death from happening. A very powerful mage got between us and whilst we fought off our own foes, he weakened me to kill her. After the battle was long over, I carried her to a safe resting place to bury her. I took some of her fur, and had it fastened on my armour so that she can continue to protect me and reminded of how hard she fought alongside me as a true friend. I destroyed that mage when I found him again and I made him pay for his cruelty.
I spotted someone watching me out of the corner of my eye. I tilted my head allowing my bangs to fall forward some, so I can watch inconspicuously. I knelt down and rummaged through my bag, clicking my tongue two times, putting Noir on alert. I watched as this man stalk towards me like a barrel rolling out of control. I swear some men have no sense of furtiveness. Just as he reached a foot before me, I stood up with a dagger in hand and at his throat faster than he could ask whom I was. Noir was at my side growling and circling us. “Artemis?” He said and pulled off his helmet. My hands dropped to my side and I backed away disappointed someone had recognized me. There was no way I was going to allow him to disclose whom I was. “You are mistaken.” I said putting my dagger back in my boot. Noir remained close, as this burly man insist that I reveal my face to him. “Ah ken ‘at it is ye.” He replies. “You know nothing.” I say and walk away clicking my tongue for Noir to follow, as if nothing ever happened. “Ye cannae hide haur fowk will begin tae ask questions.” “I think you need to move along Sir, for who you are seeking, is not here.” I haul the bag over my shoulder and continue down the dirt road in the direction the others were heading. I did not recognize the man who claimed to have known me. I have been to many places and see many faces, none of which I attach myself to. I travel alone, I live alone and I work alone. Things are better this way, I do not have to worry about someone else’s hide to save, just my own and Noir’s, who can handle herself.... I have about 18 chapters written all of which introduce the characters until the all meet then it just describes whats happening in the chapter there on out. I really enjoyed writing this when I started it so I think I will take it from here and see where it goes. perhaps another series that can be continued through the many characters in the story. Guess we will see what happens Cheers Sabrina
