Chapter 21The Houppelande LadyThird (Main) POV:
Raven climbed to the edge of the cliff while the vines evoked by Krystelle lifted her effortlessly. Carter was still within reach of the monster and resisted to emerge from the beast's hands, but it was very tight.
He was stuck, as if he had been poured with dried cement on its whole body. The beast felt their approach and immediately drilled a hole in the walls, taking Carter with him inside.
"Shoot, it got away," said Raven with a faint glimmer of disappointment. They kept following wherever the hole was leading them.
At the end of it, there was a light and Krystelle was certain that the beast brought them to the place where Perry Frost flower might be found.
There was a large Perry Frost Pine firmly standing in the centre, but its Perry Winkle-coloured leaves and some of its remaining flowers were starting to dry and wither.
"Oh no..." Krystelle gasped. But as Krystelle turned
Chapter 22A Flower into a Ticket PassThird (Main) POV: "Can we trust you, Krystelle?" asked Carter. "You can count on me!" Krystelle replied. "Krystelle..." Raven shrunk his eyes, crossed his arms, and tapped his feet on the grassy ground, standing next to both. It was already daylight and two of the suns were shining brightly. Krystelle and Carter were sitting on a tree stump and were having a conversation. "I swear. No one will ever know about this." Krystelle promised. "Carter came from Azerberk. His siblings are lost and he need to find him here." Raven lied. "No Ardorian has ever travelled to Euryth! Since each kingdoms has its own borders?! How come you and your siblings got into Euryth?!" Krystelle thought for a second. "It's kind of hard to explain but now it's your turn to explain. What are we going to do with this flower?" asked Carter while examining the Perry Frost flower. Its ivory frost pet
Chapter 23Kages: The Elven BanditsThird (Main) POV: Most of the peculiars that populated the vicinity got struck by the blasts of energy that were coming from the sky. Their numbers were decreasing and only some of the remaining peculiars that evaded the attack were the only ones that survived. "It's the Kages," said Raven. "Kage-who?" asked Carter in a curious way while they were hiding behind a large tree trunk. "Remember the first time I saved you from the giant boulder that was about to hit you?" Raven remembers how Carter first and he met. "Oh, curse them! They destroyed the portal, which was the only way for me to get home." Carter answered. The Kages invaded the village. They were looking for something, but they saw and chased me." Raven kept speaking. "Why were they" Krystelle had to ask, but energy explosions interrupted their small conversation and struck them. It detonated them like TNT, and t
Chapter 24:A Descending Book from a DreamThird (Main) POV: It's been a week since Carter came to Encrest. Another day went by and they spent the rest of the night with Raven and his new friend, Krystelle. Carter was at the window sill of the room, looking at the bright blue moon that was shining above the sky. There were many sparkling stars that captured Carter's view for a while. The house was calm after their trip, but Carter was blown away by reality, and he had forgotten the most important thing of his life. Her cheerful and warm smile slowly turned into sadness and loneliness when he remembered Sandra, Ricky and their mother, Auselle. Carter grabbed a petal from a Perry Frost flower out of his pocket wishing, "I wish Ricky and Sandra were here." Carter's POV: Where am I? "Sandra? Ricky? Where are you?" I was on a mystic grassland. A meadow so to speak. It was cloudy with daylight and I kept
Chapter 25The Ministry of EncrestCarter's POV: The Peculiar that saved me from the falling tree and the Peculiar that saved me from the falling tree, back at the Caves of Perry Frost, we both reacted with a same response after seeing each other. I guess I owe this guy as well! Damn, why am I such a 'damsel in distress' type of guy, relying on others to save me!? Am I really this weak? Which then out of the blue questions my strengths and capabilities as being me-as Carter Wister, the second-born son of Auselle Wister. I suddenly felt and realized that my life is so precious. So it is so important that almost everyone is trying to save a mere guy like me, who is always afraid of everything and who can't even save himself from any harm. What's so special about me anyway? It's like I am valuable and worthy of being rescued from any danger, which then makes me even more motivated to become stronger and that
Chapter 26The Scoundrel and the RascalCarter's POV: "Carter, Wait!" I heard Kyrstelle's voice calling me, but I kept on walking forward without turning my head back. I then started to run away from the site. I found a nearby stonebridge and hid under it. I knew it! I just knew it! I shouldn't have expected to receive a Grimoire. I shouldn't have believed I could attain powers. I'm just a mere lost human who tries to fit in this world where he doesn't even belong. If only I prevented Ricky and Sandra from entering the portal leading through here, I wouldn't be even involved in this situation. If it wasn't for that strange Lincoln too, Ricky and Sandra wouldn't be curious and we would be still living our normal lives! Tch, I don't know. I don't know what to do! I just want everything to go back to normal, but the other side of me wants to escape the old reality I have been living in for the rest of
Chapter 27The TrialsCarter's POV: "Are you alright!? "Are you hurt?" Krystelle immediately checked on me after their wild fight and hugged me. That was so awesome! They managed to defeat those thieves in that short amount of time! How powerful they are?! Especially Perseus! His ability to wield water magic. He is extraordinary and I admired him a lot! With little less effort, he managed to capture those impudent thieves trying to get my ticket that was my only way to obtain magical powers. The three of them! I adore them all for being such kind and protective friends! "It is I who's supposed to say that. How are you three?" I asked. "Unsatisfied," Raven answered in cold response. "What? How come you got unsatisfied after that fight?" "I was just getting pumped up, but Krystelle all did the fight and took the stage to show-off," he explained with a sulky expression. "What?
Chapter 28An Elf Paired with a HumanCarter's POV: "A-are you going to kill me!? Spare my life, please! I still want to live!" I raised my two hands as a sign to settle with her. "I said, be quiet!" "Okay, Alright! I'll give myself up and surrender. I'll shut up if you want, as long as you don't kill me!" She constricted her eyes and gave me a distrusting look on her face. I begged for my life, but it looks like Amarra wasn't listening. I saw Amarra's hand slowly pulling the string of her bow farther away from her body. I squeezed my eyes shut. My body was shivering from intense fear and cold. I was standing still like a preserved frozen caveman as she released the string's tension. It looks like this is the end of my life.Goodbye beautiful world. Raven, Krystelle, Perseus, Ricky, Sandra, Mom. Farewell. I waited a few seconds but I felt nothing. I felt n
Chapter 29An Offhanded Battle: Part ICarter's POV: A book appeared from the bright red light of mana that was covering it after it bursted into fragments. My Perry Frost Ticket is being merged into the object. I wasn't aware that my Perry Frost Ticket fled on its own after I retrieved it back from the Luna who attempted to steal it. This book looked like the same thing that I saw in my dreams! "This book is..." I was awestruck as this book that was floating in front of me was the same book I saw in my dreams. It descended on my hand and took it. Is this my grimoire?! Yes! I can finally have my magic! But... What does this book contain? Can I even read what's in it!? After I got too excited about receiving my Grimoire, I suddenly felt anxious as if I could use it to its full extent. "Tch, You stupid weakling! Why did you summon your Grimoire so late?" Amarra coughed and shouted after while she was lying o
