We grabbed a few things and headed West, towards the cave the lady mentioned. "So, you understand where we are going?" I asked her as we climbed a small cliff. "Yes, i know exactly where we are going. I've been there all the time." She smiled at me, "I understand that you haven't been this far West before, right?" I nodded, "I usually don't travel too far." She laughed. "Figures for someone like you." We reached the top of the cliff, and she helped me up. "You you happen to speak English, by any chance?" I asked as we sat down. "Yes, why?" She asked, in perfect English. "Just wondering, does everyone speak Trax over here?" She nodded, and returned to speaking Trax. "It's very common over here. But there are other languages. We will be passing a couple villages along the way, so we have spots to take rests if you'd like." I laughed. "With that tea, i don't think that'll be necessary." we both laughed, and continued on out journey. As we reached another cliff, something caught her eye. "Look out!" She yelled as a beam almost hit the both of us. "What the!?" I yelled as we got up. "What the hell was-" "Follow me!" She grabbed my arm, and we dashed for the cliff. "Are you crazy!?" I yelled to her, and she smiled. "Welcome to my life!" She laughed as we jumped off the cliff to the forest below. Wow, she's better then i thought!
We landed in the trees, and fell through them to the ground below them. "Are you ok?" I asked her as i got to my feet, she was laying against the tree, scratches all over her. I rushed over to her. "Ya, just a few scratches, that's all. How did we fall through the trees? I usually land perfectly on them." I helped her up. "It's because you were still holding onto my arm when we landed. My gravity is heavier, that's why we fell through." She laughed a bit, but she struggled to walk. "Need me to carry you?" I asked her. "That'll be very nice, thanks!" She smiled as i picked her up, and carried her a few hundred meters, before having to rest. "Damn, you're heavy." She slapped me, "Is that how you talk to a lady?" I laughed a bit. "Hey, i'm not used to carrying people." "Then why did you ask if you could carry me?" She asked, looking for an answer. "well, you're a beautiful lady, it's the least i could do." She blushed after i said that. "Y-you really mean it?" She asked, a little joy in her face. "Yes! Why would I lie to you?" I asked back, and she hugged me. "Thanks for saying that!" After a bit of the tea she had brought, we continued, now with her being able to walk thanks to the tea. "You know, you got to give me the recipe to make that stuff." She smiled at me. "Sure thing, but after our journey." I nodded and smiled, as nightfall fell upon us.
We realized we were a bit from the nearest village, so we decided to set up camp for the night. Well, i did, she insisted we continued going, but i told her that was too risky. After we set up, I decided to keep watch for the night. "Are you sure you don't want to rest?" She asked as i was getting prepared. "Nah, I've sometimes spent weeks without sleeping. It's nothing new for me. I'm somewhat immortal. If anything, i can easily heal." I told her, as she fell asleep. It was really quiet out here, with her sleeping soundly, it was really cute to see her like this. But i knew what i had to do, and that was to make sure no one attacks us by surprise. As i sat, watching the fire, i heard a rustling in the bush. I waited a few seconds to see if it was just a Demit or something, but it turned out to be something bigger, it was circling us, waiting for the fire to die out to attack. It was a Demon Wolf, nightly hunters that feed in darkness. I've never really seen one, but before we left for the cave, she gave me a lesson in what to expect while out. That's why i decided to stay up, to keep the fire going, and keep the creature away. Soon after, more of them showed up, so i decided to remove them. I struck one, and it howled as the others jumped onto me. I threw them off, some of them landing in the light of the fire, burning them. So that gave me an idea. I grabbed a large stick, and lit the end on fire. Now with portable light, i swung it at them, scaring them off. I finished scaring off the last one, and threw the stick into the fire. I sat for a few minutes, then finally fell asleep. I woke up the next morning to realize she had everything packed up. "Come on, Lazy! Get up!" I got out of the sleeping bag, and packed it up. "You did this all by yourself?" I asked her. "Yep! I've done this for years!" She smiled, and we headed off to the village ahead.
When we finally arrived at the village, it was lower-tech then the last one. Everything seemed like it was ancient technology. Instead of having smartphones like my city and the lady's village had, they had smaller phones with millions of buttons on them. "And now, i'm hopelessly confused." I said, and the lady laughed. "I understand, someone as advanced as you never knew about stuff like this." I looked at her. "I never really got your name." She smiled. "My name is Snow." "Wow, that name fits perfectly." She smiled. "Ya, it was given to me after i froze the entire field of crops." We laughed, and continued on. "well, this place certainly has some kinds of tech. It's so strange how the never had anything like my city does." Snow smiled, "well, that's because people like this never grew to appreciate the high-tech stuff." She later explained more about the next villages we will be passing by, and how that the farther west we go, the older tech there will be. Nah, i'm just kidding, the rest had stuff similar to my city, it's only because this village has no city near it. It's literally in the middle of nowhere. "well, shall we get moving?" I asked Snow, and she nodded. "The next village is not too far, so we should be able to get there by nightfall." I nodded, and we headed out. "So, Little Miss Freezer has a new friend, how lovely!" A mysterious man said as he was watching us from the top of one of the buildings. He soon vanished into the sky, and no one seemed to notice him.
Along the way, something felt odd, like it did earlier this week. "He's near, isn't he?" Snow asked me as i had to sit down. "I don't know, it feels a little different." Just then, the same arrows from earlier fly past us. "Greetings!" The man said as he bowed at us. "You! How did you find us?" Snow yelled at him. "Silly girl, didn't you forget i'm always watching!" He laughed, which seemed to echo a bit. "Listen here bud, either you leave her alone, or you'll have to go through me!" I yelled at him. "Maybe i will just DESTROY YOU!" He yelled as he blasted several arrows at me, but to his shock, they all bounced right off of me. "What?" Was all he could say before i grabbed his neck and slammed him into the ground. "Any last words, Magic Weirdo?" I asked, and he just laughed. "Why yes i do. Have fun!" He disappeared in a puff of smoke, and after it cleared, he was gone. "What the hell is his problem?" I asked Snow. "He's nothing, let's just continue travelling." I nodded, but i had the feeling i haven't seen the last of him.
We arrived at the next village just a few hours from the last, and i got to say, it was beautiful! "Wow, you wern't kidding when you said it would be better then the last!" Snow giggled after i said that. "I knew you'd like it." She pointed to the nearby mountain, "That's where we're going. You still able to walk?" She asked, nudging me. "Ya i am! The tea helps a lot!" We laughed, and rested in a nearby house for the night. But i knew that come morning, we were continuing towards the cave, and find out answers to what's going on.
We arrived at the cave early that morning, because something was calling me. "What's the rush?" Snow asked as she caught up with me. "Someone needs me!" I said as i rushed in, Snow following close behind. In the middle of the large cave, there stood a glowing light-blue crystal. "Wow, it's so pretty!" Snow said as i reached for it. "Wait, what are you doing!?" She yelled as i grabbed it, which with some strange force, shoved the crystal through me, until it rested on my back. "WHAT THE HELL!" I screamed, trying to remove it from me. "Ouch! Please stop!" A voice called to me. "You. Your the one who asked for help!" A hologram of a girl appeared in front of me. "Yes, thanks for freeing me, but this isn't what i had in mind." She sighed. "I expected a mighty hero to come in, and attach me to something like a sword or something, not a living being!" I chuckled. "well, if you were looking for a hero, your now attached to one." She stared at me, "You? Really?" I laughed, "Yes, i am one. I'm just not dressed normally." I hopped down from the platform, and walked back for my ship, but Snow stopped me. "Hey, where are you going?" She asked me, and i sighed. "i'm heading home, that's what i'm doing." She smiled a tiny bit, "Will i see you again?" I nudged her, "Yes, stop by anytime!" And with that, i headed off on my way back to the ship.
This section was originally a chapter break, so there is some wording in it from before, and removing them will ruin what i wanted to talk about.
This new DotD is meant to be a mix of the original DotD, and my hopefully finish one day game, DotD: RPG adventures. which is why Snow is in this.
I will soon be making new versions of my characters for this, so be on the lookout for it.
Another thing i want to mention is that this is before i met most of the characters i have now, and the will appear in their respective order. The first one is Crystal, who I have for nearly 7 chapters, until she eventually obtains her own body. Then, next is Lake, who my team meets in Chapter 3, and lastly is Ellis, which i have for the rest of the story up till the Mech Era, who is met 4 chapters after Crystal obtains her body. Some characters i made, and just placed them into the story to fill gaps. those characters won't be in this, so my team won't run into Miki and Saki at all. Also, there will be 2 new characters to replace them for this, their names are Carrie and Devin. Devin was introduced in Dimension of the Dark, but wasn't seen before or after it. But now, he is part of the team. He is Riker's younger brother, and loves to be like him, so he gets hurt a lot.
One last thing to talk about is how the story will progress. I will end what's happening now after this break, and then get back to my team, where the original story started, just now i already have Crystal, and Kelly doesn't accidentally get teleported into another dimension, instead, she unknowingly gets dragged into one (Which for the sake of what Anime i know more, will be into Hyperdimension Neptunia. ^^) and then the rest of the team has to find her. So basically, Kelly gets dragged throughout dimensions, and we have to team up with that dimension's heroes to save her and help that world.
Also, if anything seems different from the last chapters, it's meant to be like that. The chapters won't flow like normal stories, so mine can stand out. What i mean by that is some chapters will get straight to the action, while some take a leisurely stroll, and takes a few chapters for that to finish.
Anyways, hope you enjoy, and don't forget to comment if you'd like to see Chapter 3, and pitch in ideas into what you want to see in future chapters. (Because the original story was meant to run on what people wanted to see, which didn't go well because almost everyone that sees my stuff either doesn't want to comment, or they just don't care. Umm... that came out of nowhere.
