Magical Pond

It was said to be a cure for all ailments.

It was supposed to heal him from his inner tormentors.

He took his clothes off and entered the pond.

He got out sleepy and took a nap by the pond’s side, never woke again.

Wise Blue Dragon

He was unlike other dragons that hoarded money and avoided contact with humans, he had a job in a human city: consultant.

People would come seeking his wisdom and ask the most impossible solutions.

-Please, how can we defeat the mage Moluit now that he has taken over the ancient staff of power?
-Gather the strongest druid in the realm and awake the ghost of Dilmur, the protector of the forest.
-We can’t do that, our law would forbid such ritual from taking…
-I have no answer that does not involve Dilmur. Next.

A knight carrying a comatose little girl entered his room.
-How can I remove the curse of the nine witches that has befallen my sister?
-That is complicated.
-…
-I will need time to read my ancient scrolls of healing.

He calmly read the scrolls.

-She will need to drink a potion made of 3 nightshades and 1 mandrake root boiled for 10 minutes in a dark underground room on a full moon.

-Thank you so much.

-You’re welcome.

The next visitor entered, the king of a large realm in the northern part of the world.

-I want to be immortal.

-*sigh*

-So…

-You can’t be immortal unless you are born a dragon, you could however achieve a few hundred years of lifespan by making a very obscure rite.

-Teach me that ritual please.

-It involves murdering dragons, I would rather not teach it to you.

… and that was the last guest of the day.

The forbidden flask

Steampunk Leather Gear Flask by AtticRaiders

He hurriedly hid the flask that he had received from his elders, the forbidden elixir shall not fall in the enemy’s hands.

Many years later…

Two adventurer stop amidst a desert.

Ellis got off his camel, he had glimpsed something.
What are you doing? – his companion, a young Elf by the name of Calista inquired.
I saw something bright on the dunes – the adventurer said while digging the sand.

He unearthed the forbidden flask and started reading its inscription:
“Eternal life free from bodily illnesses”

After opening the flask’s cap he started drinking the elixir – Are you sure that is safe? ‘Been buried for many years it seems. – Calista said to an apathetic Ellis.

They decided to call their quest off, that oligarch’s treasury was very well hidden, besides they had just found a valuable elixir that was now running in Ellis’ veins. Even the adorned flask itself could be worth something in the city’s market.

Edit: Remembered after looking into a bloomberg article that you use camels,not horses, on the desert. Hahaha, silly mistake.

Crystal Society

Every time humanity got more than 90% of its members killed by disease they called it a “Owari”, after the Japanese word for end.
It was 3821 years after the 4th Owari, humanity was still alive but enslaved.

Society was ruled by sentient crystals collectively known as the “Crystal System”.

Every human left was forbidden normal means of reproduction, new humans came about by genetic engineering of selected specimens and every human had a colored stone placed on her or his forehead called commanding stone.

Crystals themselves, in their adult form passing the 20 foot barrier and weighing more than 1 ton didn’t move or change the environment by themselves, they simply issued orders to humans’ commanding crystals to do their bid.

The election of the crystal king had just occurred, a new crystal tinted in green was to replace a smaller blackish one.

That’s not how he saw it, he could see crystal’s innards in ways other humans couldn’t. He knew that Saeya was to replace Ridah. Not only he knew their names, when squinting his eyes he could see a faintly human shape inside the crystals themselves. Saeya was a young slim woman in her early 30s, Ridah was a middle aged male.

That human had a disease. He needed to be corrected. And the day for the procedure was today.
He waited anxious in the hospital for his commanding stone to order him to get up.
His stone was to be replaced by an even more oppressive one, if that failed he would go to the land of past crystals, an euphemism the crystal society used for dying.

The surgery went awry and he passed.

The crystal society was relieved, another bug fixed.

The Red Dragon

The red dragon’s scales reflected the scorching sun.
His two friends lied burnt on the ground, his enemy was alive but weak, just one more strike and he’d have saved Lanceville from that creature’s greed.He readied his wrist and gave his best shot.
The dragon parried his sword with its right claw and burned him alive with its flame breath.
The city’s gold was added to the already humongous treasury of the dragon.

Short Story: Fairy Tower

Glaring at my computer screen become increasingly hard as fatigue took over my eyes, I took my glasses off and rubbed my thumb and middle finger on my eyelids. Not withstandanding my tiresomeness I felt hungry.
Maybe I should eat something before going to bed huh? – I murmured to myself.

I went to the kitchen and reached out to the cabinet handle when I heard something moving inside it. Two or three seconds later a faint dark-purple glow started seeping trough the cabinet’s crannies.
I stepped back still gazing at the weird phenomenon, but the noise grew louder and the cabinet collapsed inside what seemed like a portal to another dimension. I realized other objects flying towards said portal. Before I could think about fleeing my foot was already sliding irreversibly in that thing’s direction.
I rememer thinking whether it was a blackhole as my body was flunged inside said portal. The dark-purple light gave way to a pink sky. Nothing below or above me, I was freefalling. Wind rushing against my face. The terrain approached quickly, and I ended up hiting my head against some tree’s branch.

I woke up just to find several small creatures looking intently at me. They walked on two curved short legs and had a toad-like appearance. One of them got near and said something without moving what looked like it’s mouth.
-Greeting stranger, can I have your tribute?
Was that telepathy? And what did it mean by tribute?
It looked at the it’s peers as if it had read my thoughts and tooked them as an answer.
It didn’t looke pleased but it’s not like the thing had changed it’s expression.
-Stop calling me “it” and show me the Giant Tulip seeds.
I don’t know what you’re talking about – I thought, this time knowing there was no privacy within my mind anymore.
My head was still hurting from hitting the tree(and possibly the soil, my consciousness ended right after the branch hit) but I endured and tried not to show any sign of weakness.
The weird band, which amounted to 5 or 6 beings plus some dark silhouette behind them. The bright sky was partially blocked by the pervasiveness of the trees.

They started throwing some red gloo from what seemed like their mouths. It was very sticky and as the quantity being thrown increased my body got binded.

Stop! – I yelled. It probably contained some sleep inducing chemical, my eyes started closing on their own.
Don’t worry, we are not going to kill you, just have you get us the tributes you owe. – I thought hearing before falling unconscious again.

When I woke up three or four creatures were removing the binging gloo by spraying some liquid(also from their mouths) that eroded the gloo.
Climb this giant tulip, get to the flower, get the yellow colored seeds, and climb down to us – One of the creatures told me(using telepathy, as always)

I couldn’t tell if the toadish thing was the same creature that greeted me before, they all look very similar to me.
I thought about fleeing but I felt a hunch that it would be a fruitless endeavor.
Yes, it would be uselees, don’t bother – Damn, I had forgotten they can read my mind.

I climbed the tulip whose height was twice that of the neighbouring trees but whose width wasn’t so bulky.
The flower itself was the size of a telephone cabin. I slid inside and took one of the yellow spheres, it was soft but seemingly resistant. It didn’t feel like I could break it by squeezing it. Perhaps I should just let it fall to the green toads?
Don’t do that! – I heard one of them saying, a different voice.
Hmm, so I guess the one that instructed me to climb was the one who greeted after the fall.
You can call me Yoonar – the first voice told me
Now, climb down the tulip while holding the seed. – Yoonar
I did as told and gave them the yellow sphere.
They started drooling as they ripped it’s shell.
Inside lied what looked like a butterfly, but it wasn’t moving.
It’s dead! Go get another one. – Some other toad said.
And so I did, this time they were happier when looking at the interior.
A live butterfly, Yoonar took it by the wings and swallowed it.
He trembled for a while and started smirking. The first time I saw him(or any other toad-like creature for that matter) changing his facial expression.
Great! – He screamed inside my mind – Hahahaha, now go get two more!
As I climbed yet again they started running away.
I decided to stop and check things out.

Two human-like entities come into view. They resembled girls, about 5 feet 5 inches tall, wearing what looked like a summer dress, they had two somewhat transparent insect wings. they run towards the spot the toads were standing before, and then suddenly stopped.

One of them looked up at me.

Hey you! What are you doing? – she yelled, I was about 24 feet high clinging to the giant tulip.
Well, they told me to get some yellow spheres and… – I was interrupted
What!? You helped them kill our children!? – said the other winged cat-girl
Come down here! – she continued.
No, they made me get those things… – I started explaining as I climbed down.
She then pushed me to the ground with an unexpected strength. And chained my wrists.
You are under arrest! – she yelled.
Can you people stop binding me!? – I asked exasperated.

The two took me through the florest until we reached a huge lake. In the center of the lake lied an island and on top of that Island a huge but slender white tower that dwarfed the whole forest(including the giant tulips).
The cat-girl that wasn’t behing me made some gestures and summoned a bridge that seemed made of transparent plastic with a very faint blue color.
Let’s go – she said while pushing me forward.
I walked following the other cat-girl who had just summoned the bridge and was now walking towards the tower.
Hey cat-girls, can you please tell me when I’ll be able to explain myself? – I asked
We are fairies, not cat-girls. And the answer is never! – The one behind me said
The cat-gi… er… fairy leading the way chuckled and said – Well, we need to get to the fairy tower before you can be judged.
The fairy behind me tsked.
