(Hello readers, this currently this book hasn't began its editing phase yet and I haven't done a basic review of few chapters, from Ch5-10.)A foot stepped out of a portal, and tripped over stone. Axel shuffled his feet and rooted himself to a stop before a military barracks. From behind, Sir Drexel walked out carrying the duke's heir within his humongus forearms.A duet of squires rushed through the gates. Sir Drexel tossed the boy in the air. "Toby, this is Duke Tartsan's son. Preform a quick check-up before sending him back to the estate.""Yes, sir" a red haired squire caught the boy with his lanky arms. He glanced at Axel and continued, "Also, if the Lord ask, tell him... I have already executed the offender""Understood sir" The squire bowed his head and with the feet of a cheeta, he dashed out to carry his order."Now your grace, what should I do with you?"Axel walked ahead with arms behind his head. A whistle rang, hundereds of infantary soldiers marched around the base to
Like lightning, it crashed into ground; blasting meters of dirt around. Holding the girl close to his chest, Axel tilted his head in thought. "A minute and twenty seconds" Joints clinged, a golden plated leg stepped out of the dust. "Hehehe, even in this world, law is slow as f***"Axel whispered in her ear. "Yo, kid do ya think I can take him on?" She raised her head and gazed into his tranquil eyes. "Do you even have a chance?""I don't know" Axel stared, as the royal guard rose to a towering height and stretched a hand. "But I won't know until I try" Instantly, his gauntlet glowed. A force sucked the tramatized into a sphere above his head. "Maybe...not day" A thunderous voice escaped the crossed helmet. "Release her and surrender""Surrender or else what?" He unsheathed his exclaiber, it shimmered with a golden light. A light sparked within the helmet, he held the excalibur in front of his body. "Obey or be obilerated" Axel gritted his teeth, a hidden force pressed his
Benedict placed his hand on the surface, whispered a spell. The locks unwinded open.Slowly, the door parted and rolled in a carpet of light. Footsteps clashed against the stoned floor. Sunlight grazed his chestnut loafers. Her nails glistened, she placed a hat over his crown. They locked arms and walked outside while his entourage carried theor luggages. He tipped his hat lower, his eyes shifted; they went from the servants to his knights, to his butler and the hired driver. Scanning the area for possible threats. His eyes soon caught a pair of winged horses. He thought 'Interesting. Can they fly?The hired coach let go of his reins and jumped down the carriage."Let me help you with that sir" the young man said, his voice contained high amounts of enthusiasm. The coach unwinded metal stairs from underneath. He turned to her with a smile and took her gloved hand. "May I?" She smiled, her cheeks uncovered her dimples. She nodded. "Hmm" She bunched her sky-blue gown up her leg
A hand nudged the book between the gap. Feet rapped bounced against the carpeted floor. "Your highness, what is your request?""I want to leave a few hours before noon"He rubbed his neck, replied "But sir, the driver is scheduled at thirty minutes past three in the noon""Doesn't matter, just hire a normal carriage.""And I mean the carriage for peasants"His facial muscles froze, Benedict countered "What! Your highness, that's unacceptable""You are a Prince. If a rumor spreads, it will reflect the royal family poorly and undermine your honor""Honor?""Tell me Benedict, what do you think is more important than honor? Than reputation?""Fame... maybe power or wealth""No" Axel's shout echoed within the room. "Time, love and your life""I would rather keep my life as a beggar than die as an extravagant fool" He raised a kerchief across his forehead. "I see, your highness" "You may depart" Axel waved his hand. "Yes, your highness" Benedict bowed and walked out. Axel snapped his fi
Slowly Claire face turned black-purple, she screamed. "Destroy that dump! Hahaha" 'Is this a psychological trick or... something sinister?' Axel thought, staring into Claire's feral eyes, as she hissed and scratched the metal cuff like a deranged animal. Axel pulled out his dagger. "Charlotte, what is happening?" Charlotte pinched and rubbed her forehead back and forth. "Why does it have to be..." her mumble faded into the background. The chains rattled, as the beast woman trashed her body around. "Is she possessed?" Axel unwinded the bandages around his arms.Charlotte replied. "Her body is reacting against the Submricum but also a curse""Okay. Anything else""The reason she is like this is because the mind control potion contains high amounts of the Gretchen herb and the controller's essence...""Okay. How to stop it?" "I can create an antidote but... it will take too long" "How much time do you need?" Axel asked. "15 mins" the shriken head purse opened it's mouth and spat
Water dripped from the ceiling. Rodents scampered in the shadows, heavy footsteps beat against the stoned stairs with a gloom drag. While the guard polished his scabbard under the dim candle light. He cranked his neck up to the visitor, shouted "Who goes there?""At ease" His gloves latched onto the rails, and firmly grounded his cane into basement floor and stepped into the light with a friendly smile. "it's just me"The guard sheathed his sword and bowed his head. "Your highness""What brings you here?"He hoisted the cane in front of his body, replied. "I'm here to visit the prisoner""But, your highness aren't you..."He striked his cane, said. "Sick?"Sweat slid down his brow, he quickly explained "No, I meant recovering, your highness" and rubbed the back of his neck."It won't take long, I just want to ask her a few questions"Feeling his penetrating stare, he stuttered "Your... highness... I think you should just let us..."Axel looked elsewhere, commented. "This place stinks"
"What do you think of the terms?""Well, it is... overly generous of you but... I can't promise you anything""Hmm" he tilted his head from the side, indirectly posing a question."But the reasons for your condition...are many. The causes can be generalized into three types" she said, lifting three fingers in the air."Oh""It could be the cause from long-term prescrption of faulty drugs or poison, natal disturbances or an anomaly""So, you have a way?""Not really..." from her face, her confidence took a dip. "I see" Axel lowered his head in thought, whispered. "I understand the difficulty""Well, I could try to reach out to some of my associates""But there is no guarantee. They are all a bit of a wack job"Axel chuckled. "Which genius isn't an enigma""Enigma or not. It doesn't matter" Charlotte held her breath, as dominance glimmered in his gray irises."As long as they possess emotions" He grinned, anticipating his first case study. He lifted his palm, "It won't be a problem" a
"Ka-raah karrah" Axel rolled on the floor. The bird's cold beak grazed his sensitive ears. "Please! Please.. stop! "Ka-raah karrah" Almost understanding the beast's speech, Axel lifted his brow in humor and laughed for the first time in ages. "Haha, you cheeky bird!" "Okay! I will say it"Axel covered his ears, shouted. "Uncle! Uncle I surrender!" The raven cracked a laugh and perched itself on the ledge. Axel rose to his feet, and faked a snare "Little fellow, keep this up and I'll grill you" Yet, the dominance overtook his breathy voice, chilled the raven quiet. Even though, the strength of Axel wasn't even close to a fraction of the bird. Axel tied his shirt and straighten his tie. "Now what brings you here? You should be with your owner." "Cah-rah ro-ka" "Eh? So, you are saying you have no owner?" "Kaat" The raven shook his head. Axel pursed a hand under his chin and thought in silence while the raven continued talking. 'Hmm, interesting. It can display great amount of
