Reclaiming what's lost
Rep: 113

For the OOC and discussion, I suppose you’d go to this thread. I apologize if you were hoping for something with a little more thought put into it, but so far I’m just winging it.

“Come on! is there really no one willing to come with me?" Kedra challenged to the general public around him. Some glanced at him, most of them didn’t even bother doing that. Most of them were tired enough from farming or hunting, and it wasn’t like the village was getting enough food for itself. they didn’t have the time or the energy for the expedition that Kedra proposed. And yet, during his last trip out hunting, he discovered something that made him too excited to accept that fact. It was a towering gray monolith that shot into the sky, blending in with the clouds near its top. He didn’t know what it was, but he knew he wanted to find out. He knew it was important to find it out.

But, he didn’t want to do it alone. It would do him no good to get hunted by the wildlife on his way home to share his glory. So there he was, shouting like a madman to find anyone willing to go on an adventure.

Lol, talk about projecting.

James heard a whimper at the far distance, it was a small and fearfully ugly girl, James read her like a book, at first glance;she was daunted, too afraid, afraid of this world (possibly had dad issues); afraid of what might become of her or of what might not. Shouting for help; shouting as loud as her weak chest could shout, in a village full of people with no one in it.

James took pity on her, she reminded him of someone he had known in a far memory of old. “Hey girl” James said, “What’s with the commotion, do you have a death wish?".

She explained of the column he had seen. James saw a gleam of light reflect of her eye, with it the power of the Sun reflected the will and hope in its unique essence and power of itself. A dream so pure and powerful, in nature it was like a waterfall, magnificent and majestic.

“Sorry kid, I can’t help." he said, “One must walk his own path for oneself to discover who they are.".

She looked at him with a look of disdain and confusion. The light had faded into darkness.

James understood, he understood what she was looking for. The pillar was an not what she was looking to discover and all its mysteries. The pillar was nothing more than an physical symbol. Of what? That’s for her to discover.

He walked away looking forward, as the Sun went down the sky turned of a color similar to Autumn dying leaves. “Is this an omen?" He pondered.

Damn, this was actually kind of fun. I implemented traits of my “El Matador” person into the character I made, lol.

Maybe I’ll post again.

The player from Bloodborne stepped forward. “I will slaughter everything in sight for you on your journey." He kneeled down and offered himself to Kedra.

Kedra sighed in relief, then bowed back. “That’s the spirit!" He said, grinning like an idiot.

He packed up his iron-tipped spear and both himself and his leather-clad friend headed out. They walked through the rickety wooden gate and left the village behind. No one said goodbye, which didn’t bother Kedra any. The grasslands tickling his feet as he walked past was all he needed to get his spirits up; they were finally going.

“So tell me," Kedra said to the hunter, just to make conversation, “What’s your name? I don’t think I’ve seen you around much."

The hunter was checking and loading his blunderbuss while he spoke. “My name... well, it’s been a while since I’ve used it. That man died among the countless beasts and horrors I’ve slaughtered to break my curse. But, ah, you can call me Hunter."

Hunter, now proper noun, re-holstered his gun and opened his bag to check that he had everything. “You have a name, yes?"

“The name’s Kedra," he said just a bit hesitantly. Hunter’s introduction unnerved him just a bit.

“If you’ve slain beasts and horrors, does that mean you know what’s out there?" He asked, suddenly ravenously curious. He had never even been this far out into the fields before, and as far as he knew no one in the village had either.

“Things that would make even a blind man tear his eyes out and wish he were never born. Things God only sees in his nightmares." He pulled a jar of blood from his bag and opened it, taking a whiff. “Eheheheh... thirsty?" He asked, as his mouth stretched into a grin that showed somewhat sharp, discolored teeth.

"...No, not really," Kedra politely declined the offer. He was significantly less excited about seeing the world at this point.

(I’ll update tomorrow with something substantial).

“More for me, then." He took a swig of the vile stuff and shut the jar after, stashing it. “Ah don’t worry! With me around, you’ll probably only go three quarters insane." With that, he nudged Kedra on the arm and laughed.

Kedra chuckled a bit and distanced himself just a bit.


The pair walked on for miles, and the terrain went from being flat grassland to sloping gently upwards. Kedra’s hamstrings were just starting to burn as they crested a hill, and what they saw at the top took the kid’s breath.

The other side of the hill was almost a sheer drop, and it was much steeper on this side. There was a giant canyon carved into the ground, with dirt blending into layers upon layers of rock. The bottom was practically invisible from their vantage point- the sun was hanging low in the sky and the hole was shrouded in darkness- but there were tiny pinpricks of light at the bottom.

“Is that fire?" Kedra asked, pointing one light out. “What would’ve made that, I wonder?"

He looked around and found a rickety set of wooden stairs that led down, at least until they disappeared behind a veil of shadow.

Hunter pulled a couple of torches from his sack and a box of matches. “Hold these, will ya?" He requested, before handing the torches to Kedra. He removed a match and struck it before using it to light them both, then dropped the match carelessly on the ground and stepped the fire out.

“See that? I’m like a walking Swiss army knife. If only I were really Swiss." He took one and positioned himself in front of Kedra to protect him, just in case. He looked down into the abyss, regarding the little lights Kedra mentioned a moment earlier. “Only one way to find out my good man. Onward we go, into the unknown."

He pressed a foot on the first stair, testing it. “Sturdy enough." He continued down, each board squeaking under his weight.

The two headed down the ancient-looking stairs one after another, each step groaning under them. The guard rails were long gone, with only broken sticks lodged into the side every now and then hinting that they used to be there.

Kedra a was a simple boy, and he couldn’t exactly tell how long they had been walking down the steps, but they eventually came to a turn, then another one after another long jaunt. By now everything was dark, and it was hard to see anything at all past the torchlight.

Eventually the stairs came to an end and they reached a landing of sorts. The ground was just dirt flattened out, and there were the vague outlines of houses creeping in the shadows.

“I think we wanna head... That way if we want to see the gloat thing," Kedra whispered, gesturing kind of to his right. He didn’t really feel like talking out loud.
