[center [size12 Aries paused before glancing up at the kid, who seemed to be destroyed at the mere fact of Aries dying. The kid did not know what this disease, the infection that The Judgement had casted upon this land and how it affected the people who got it. It wasn't a cured thing by just defeated the original creator of it. The people that had the disease would still die, but those who were healthy and could live on after The Judgement was defeated, they would live a healthy, happy life without fear of anything bad happening to them again. Aries was, unfortunately, one of the people, who would most likely die in the end. From not only the disease, but fighting the monster was going to take the hardest toll on his body.]]
[center [size12 Aries then sighed softly, ruffling his fingers through his white hair. [i [#FF0000 "I know the mere fact that I may die isn't an easy thing to swallow, but think of it like this..."]] Aries began, [i [#FF0000 "We all have to make sacrifices to be able to live happily and for others to live their healthy, happy lives. I happen to be one of those people that has to make a sacrifice. I know its hard to accept the fact, but it has to be this way,"]] Aries then glanced up at the kid with tired eyes and a half smile.]]
[center [size12 Aries then reached out, taking the side of the male's face into his small, blue coloured hand and tilted his head with a kind smile on his face. [i [#FF0000 "But with this, your sister and father's death would be avenged, by not only me, but you too. Don't let my death make you upset,"]] Aries spoke gently now. He realizes that this kid didn't have much now, after losing not one, but two of his family members to this curse. Aries couldn't be hard on him anymore. He had to be kind, gentle even to get his point across.]]

[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 When Aries finally opened the door, he explained his drowsy behavior and Galen scratched the back of his head, blushing slightly from embarrassment. Maybe he should've waited until the next day... But he was there, so there was no turning back. He entered at Aries' behest and pulled up a chair from the small sitting area. When Aries sat, he proceeded to Galen out for his actions, which made the man flush again and avoid eye contact, or at least try to.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+forestgreen I can fight! ...I think. I've never really tried it out in front of anyone, but I thought I would learn, just in case. I could help you!]" Galen was so excited, the Drifter would let him come if he could fight! But... did Aries just say he may very well die? No. That couldn't happen. Galen wouldn't [i let] that happen. This was one of the last Drifters in existence, after all, and the loss of him could hurt the entire universe greatly.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+forestgreen Wait... did you just say you might die at the end? Wouldn't defeating the Judgement cure you? You... you can't die! I want to help. If not for me... then for my father... and for my sister... Please let me come with you.]" Galen said. He looked Aries straight in the eyes - holding back a shudder - and a tear rolled down his cheek. "[+forestgreen Please, Aries...]" He said, fighting back more tears and clasping his hands in front of him, almost begging.]]]

[center [size12 The Drifter was woken up by the knocking at his room door. He sat up, smacking his dried lips before looking over at the door in a tired manner. He rubbed his eyes, pulling himself up from the bed before finally walking over to it. He gave a big yawn before opening the door. She looked up at the kid and offered a tired, but kind of goofy smile at him. It was obvious, Aries was still half asleep. He needed to let himself wake up a bit more.]]
[center [size12 [i [#FF0000 “Hi. Sorry, I was taking a nap, but you’re fine. Come in,”]] Aries opened the door just enough for the kid to come in before shutting it behind him. He slid the dead bolt chain over the door before returning to the bed, where he sat back down. His feet and legs were tucked underneath his body. He looked very small and the way he was sitting did not help that fact. Aries was a tiny being anyway. [i [#FF0000 So, I could not help, but to notice that you wanted to join me on my journey to fight The Judgement,”]] Aries asked, calling the kid out point blank. He probably appeared to be an asshole, but he really wasn’t. Just waking up from a deep sleep.]]
[center [size12 Aries then shrugged, he was conflicted. He did not know this kid that well, plus he did not know if the kid could fend for himself and hold his own against monsters that he has never seen before. Aries had to be cautious with this one. [i [#FF0000 “So, this journey isn’t an easy one. I will most likely die in the end, but if that means ridding this land of the Judgement, then so be it. But, the point I am trying to make here is that if you cannot hold your own and fight for yourself, then you cannot come,”]] Aries stated blandly. He did not want this kid getting himself killed because he wanted to leave his home behind in search of exciting things. [i [#FF0000 “If you come with me, you have to know how to fight monsters and creatures that you have never seen before and you cannot expect me to help you. Yes, we would be a team, but you have to know how to hold your own,”]] Aries explained in a factual, curt manner, looking up at the kid with a tired expression before offering yet another kind of goofy, toothy smile.]]

[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon As soon as Galen had left the Drifter's presence, he regretted it. He knew that it had been rude to just leave like that, but now that he had done it, he couldn't bear to return. He watched from the kitchen window as the Drifter finished his meal, paid, and left. After the man had left, Galen let out a breath that he hadn't known he had been holding. Shaking his head gently, he returned to the Drifter's table and began to clear it. He was about to throw away one of the many napkins he had brought over when he saw some writing on it. "[b The Inn, room 12. Come by, we need to discuss some things. Your friend. Aries, The Drifter.]" Galen just stared at the note for a moment, shocked that the Drifter - Aries was his name, Aries - wanted to speak to him more. He had thought that his several missteps would have irredeemably tarnished his good name in Aries' eyes, but apparently not. Galen resolved to go to Aries' room to talk once his shift ended.]]]
[center ~~~~~]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon It was early evening before Galen's shift ended. He was equal parts nervous and excited for his meeting with Aries. As he walked home, he pondered all the things that could go wrong, and also all the things that could go perfectly. He certainly couldn't wear his work uniform - what if they got swept into an adventure before he got to change? - and decided that he would go home and pack a bag first, just in case. So, when he arrived, he snuck past his mother and went to his room to change and pack a bag. He changed into a pair of jeans, a shirt with the logo of some long forgotten band from Earth on it, and a dark green hoodie to match his beanie. He packed 3 of everything into a pack, then left his room and made his way to Aries', room 12.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon He knocked three times, then stepped back and waited, one hand holding the strap of his pack and the other hanging loosely by his side. '[i [+forestgreen This feels weird and I don't like it but I don't know what else to do with it and - ohmygodthat'shim]]' He was thinking when the Drifter opened the door. "[+forestgreen U-uh... Hi...]" Galen said, trying to avoid gawking at the Drifter without his helmet, mask, and cloak.]]]
  s t a r s / Monday- / 17d 9h 47m 44s
[center [size12 The kid could keep no secret from the Drifter. He could sense the excitement that the kid was feeling just knowing who Aries was and what he did for a living. Slaying monsters, keeping people safe, and even fighting things like The Judgement. Aries' ancestors had been doing this for thousands of years and now, Aries was one of the last few remaining Drifters left. Most were in hiding, not doing their duties, or even just trying to live a normal life. Aries was the last one or two that were out there, trying to protect the precious creatures and humans that were just trying to survive day to day. It pained him to know that Aries couldn't save the day by himself.]]
[center [size12 Aries was about to respond to the kid, but he scurried off before he could even open his mouth. Aries' ears flattened in confusion before sighing softly. He then began nibbling silently on his salad. Aries couldn't stomach more heavy foods, like meats anymore. The sickness and corruption was slowly destroying his body, but if he could kill The Judgement, restore power to Anubis, all creatures, humans, and himself would be free from this curse and be able to go on living without fear. Aries feared that he wouldn't be able to do it alone.]]
[center [size12 Aries was nearing the end of his meal and glanced around. The restaurant was close to being empty and he got up. He left what money he had to pay for the meal and some left over for the kid before scribbling down on one of the napkins his room in the Inn and a small message. [b Come by, we need to discuss some things. Your friend. Aries, The Drifter.] With that, Aries pulled his face mask back up, plopping his helmet have over his head, and left the restaurant and headed directly to the Inn where he wanted to lay down for a while.]]
[center [size12 Once inside of his room, Aries before taking off pieces of his clothes. Helmet and mask were laying by the door, boots by his beat, cloak hung up on a hook. He was left to a long shirt, his skirt, and pants. He glanced into the mirror at his endless, dark eyes and sighed. He didn't realize how creepy he looked, no matter how nice he was. Aries shook his head and climbed his way into the bed and huffed. [i Much better than a wet ground, or a cold cave,] he purred before finding himself drifting off to sleep.]]

[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon When the Drifter confirmed his identity, it was all Galen could do to keep from jumping around and yelling from happiness. He was just about to ask if the Drifter would take him on his journey, when the Drifter started coughing. It was a distinct cough, the same one his father and sister had before they passed. Galen instinctively took a step back and everyone in the restaurant quieted again, some turning to stare at the Drifter. After his initial shock, Galen stepped forward again, tempted to place a hand on the Drifter's shoulder to give comfort, but that would be rude, and he decided against it. Instead, he retrieved several more napkins for the Drifter, just in case. When the Drifter's coughing fit finally quieted, he cleaned up the blood that he had coughed up and apologized.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+forestgreen There's no need to apologize for something out of your control,]" Galen said softly. "[+forestgreen I know how it is, my father and sister were Corrupted before they passed... If you don't mind me asking, Drifter, what are you doing here in Ashur? This town is nothing special... If you need company I'd be glad to-]" Galen cut himself off. He was over-stepping. "[+forestgreen I'm sorry, I'll leave you to your meal.]" He squeaked, then scurried off back to the kitchen.]]]
  s t a r s / Monday- / 18d 3h 11m 14s
[center [size12 Aries always tried to handle conversations with strangers as well as he could since he wasn't actually a very social person. Socially interacting with anything, especially humans, made Aries uncomfortable, but he managed to hide it to be polite. As he was focused back into his thoughts, the boy came back with food, drink, and a question. Aries looked up at the boy and sighed softly. He mentally cursed the elderly woman before nodding his head. [i [#FF0000 "Yes, I am a Drifter,"]] he plainly stated before taking a sip from his water. He hoped he didn't appear rude. He was a very dry, bland person at times, without really meaning to.]]
[center [size12 After swallowing the small gulp of water, Aries felt a choking in his throat and began coughing softly and that turned into violently. Once he regained control over himself, he glanced down at the blood in his blue hand. The contrast made it unmistakable that it was blood. It was the corruption that was slowly consuming his insides, making him cough blood, and feel weak at moments when he needed to feel strong. He grabbed his napkin and gently wiped the blood from his hand then dabbed it away from his mouth, doing a finally spit into the napkin for whatever remaining blood that was in his mouth.]]
[center [size12 [i [#FF0000 "Pardon me, I am very sorry for that,"]] his voice was much quietly now. He did feel embarrassed for just coughing up blood in front of this kid. He felt like he was being rude. Carefully, Aries peeled off his helmet as well, revealing stark white hair that was shaggy and hung around his face. He also didn't have the whole standard, human ears. He had what appeared to be animal-like ears, something akin to cat eats, but a little taller and thicker. He also had several scars on his face.]]
[center [size12 Aries then took another drink of his water, sighing. Nothing he hated more than looking weak in front of anyone. He was already sick, but he didn't want anyone else to know that. He had been keeping it a secret this whole time until now. He mentally kicked himself hard before looking up at the kid once more, tilting his head.]]

[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon The blue skinned being was silent for a time, just staring at Galen, which made the man very uncomfortable. He was just about to open his mouth to apologize, fearing he had offended the person, when they reached up to the mask they were wearing and opened a small flap in it to speak. Even more frightening than the being's soulless black eyes was their sharp, pointed teeth, though they had a gentle enough voice. They ordered a simple water and salad, and was polite enough.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+forestgreen O-of course. I'll be right back with those,]" Galen stuttered, and scurried off to the kitchen to get the water and salad. He was just exiting the kitchen to bring another patron their food when he saw the old women, Adeline and Shirley, pestering the blue-skinned man. Just before he was free to go usher them back to their table, they left of their own volition and sat back down to their tea. He had caught one part of the conversation, "[i [+grey ...save us, Drifter?]]" So the being was a Drifter. Galen had heard stories of them, but never seen one. Those stories, containing plenty of danger, intrigue... Galen shook his head, dispelling the daydream, and returned to the Drifter's table, setting the salad, water, and some silverware down in front of the man.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+forestgreen Is... is it true? Are you a Drifter?]" Galen asked, his excitement getting the better of him and his voice only slightly wavering. His heart was fluttering in the anticipation of the Drifter's answer, hopeful that he would agree to take Galen with him. He realized that he was looking at the being, eyes full of hope and anticipation, so he averted his eyes and his cheeks flushed slightly in embarrassment.]]]
  s t a r s / Monday- / 18d 4h 35m 45s
[center [size12 The quiet chattering and gossip of the older people in the restaurant caught the Drifter's attention. He glanced over with those soulless black pits for eyes and just stared at them. He could understand their curiosity though. Aries' kind was so rare to see nowadays. The blue skinned knight of sorts of species was long dead, Aries being one of the few that was left in this world, even the universe. He knew he would be meeting his demise soon enough, but he needed to defeat the Judgement, end this corruption before then. That was why he was here, in Ashur. He knew that the corrupt was very obvious in this area. He could smell the death from miles away. This town was largely affected by the same illness that he was suffering. Aries could at least still fight.]]
[center [size12 Aries was brought from his thoughts by a voice and he glanced up at the kid, who had placed a menu in front of him. Aries examined the boy for a moment before blinking a few times, noting that he had been silent for a rather awkward amount of time. Carefully, he pulled his face mask door, so his voice wasn't as muffled and spoke. [i [#FF0000 "Just a water please,"]] a very notable feature about Aries without his mask on was his teeth, or more like fangs, but his voice was smooth, deep, and kind sounding. He wasn't at all mean, he just appeared intimidating.]]
[center [size12 Aries glanced down at his menu for a moment, [i [#FF0000 "I can go ahead and order, as well."]] He pondered for a moment, flipping the menu back and forth before finally deciding on something. [i [#FF0000 "Give me a large salad, no dressing please,"]] for someone with as sharp teeth as Aries' had, it was kind of odd that he would choose veggies over meat. It was just how he worked. He wasn't much of a meat eater.]]
[center [size12 Aries was then left with his thoughts once more. He was thinking about how he was going to approach the whole situation that he was faced with. Ashur was the center point of the corruption and where the Judgement was currently attacking. There was a large, stone structure in the middle of the town. He needed to check that out before doing anything. It was connected to the olden days.]]
[center [size12 As Aries had his chin resting in the palm of his hand, his attention was grabbed by a pair of elderly ladies. They walked over to Aries and smiled. [i [#778899 "Are you here to save us, Drifter? We know who you are and we've heard stories,"]] the elder ladies asked, looking so hopeful that Aries was even there. Aries just smiled at them, [i [#FF0000 "I can try my best, I promise you that."]] Aries was so bad at communicating with people. Both ladies smiled before walking back to their table.]]

[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 The Judgement. Many knew of it, some knew its origin, all knew its effects. The Judgement had... [i changed] people. Galen had grown up hearing the story, whether in a history lesson or from his grandmother. Galen had seen the effects himself. The Judgement had corrupted his parents, and his sister, Ripley. His father succumbed to the illness the Corruption brought first. Not a week after they had buried him, Galen and his mother buried Ripley. His mother was different, after that. She became cold, mean. That was another effect of the Corruption. To avoid drawing his mother's ire, Galen shrunk into himself, became shy. When he did make a friend, which was rare, he tended towards making jokes at his own expense. But no one noticed. He dreamt of a time when someone would come take him away, to take him away from this horribly boring place to go on an adventure, full of danger and intrigue and romance.]]]
[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 Galen knew that time would never come. He was stuck in this small town, surrounded by a whole lot of nothing, only ruins and forests and monsters. He would be forced to marry a girl from Ashur, he would be forced to have children to further his line. His children would grow up here, he would die here, and so would everyone else. Until that happened, however, Galen was stuck. His life was one long routine - wake up, get ready, go to work, go home, go to sleep, wake up again and repeat. His only respite was those times when the adventure struck him, and he snuck out of town, with only his wits about him. It never lasted long, he always returned before nightfall. But it was fun, when it happened.]]]
[center [b ~~~~~]]
[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 Galen was staring up at the stars he had painted on his ceiling , as he always did, dreaming about someone coming and sweeping him off his feet to go on a wonderful adventure. His daydream was broken by shrieking.]]]
[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 "[+maroon GALEN! GET UP, YOU NEED TO GO TO WORK!]" His mother screeched, banging on Galen's door. He sighed deeply - it was still an hour until his shift started, and only a 5 minute walk to the restaurant where he worked, but his mother insisted that he was almost late every day.]]]
[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 "[+forestgreen Yes, Mother, I know. I'm coming.]" He said, getting up and pulling on a shirt with the restaurant's logo on the chest. Over that went a hoodie, and his black jeans. A matching dark green beanie was pulled on before he exited his room. Galen had nothing else to do, so he climbed the stairs of the inn to the roof and sat on the edge, swinging his feet over the edge. It was then that he saw a figure in the distance approaching from outside the city limits, still somewhat shrouded in the darkness of the morning. It momentarily piqued his interest, but was soon forgotten, his mind retreating back to the clouds of his daydream-that-would-never-come.]]]
[center [b ~~~~~]]
[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 Galen's shift had just started, when a strangely-dressed stranger entered the restaurant. The entire place went quiet at the arrival, but the chatter soon picked up again, started by a couple of old ladies at the bar gossiping about the newcomer. The masked figure made their way towards the back corner and sat at the corner-most table. Galen readied himself and approached. He placed a menu in front of the being.]]]
[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 "[+forestgreen Would you like something to drink?]" He asked.]]]
  s t a r s / Monday- / 18d 8h 27m 18s
[center [size12 This story begins in the world where there are many races are sentient and technologically advanced. The brightest minds from four main races. The Aliens of our store are lizards of the south, the Raccoons of the west, the Birds of the north and the Stoats of the east. All come together to further their technological goals. They discover the powerful pink energy source that the Librarians used before them. The confederate races had long studied the Librarians. They had studied the Titans and the pink energy source. They did not make the same mistakes as the Librarians and as such did not learn like they had. They, like the Librarians, had once worshiped Anubis, a powerful God. However over time they forgot the sanctity of religion. Their humility gave way to an insatiable drive for progress and hunger for knowledge. They had developed too fast and reached a level of technology that was too dangerous and too poorly understood, leading to heavy corruption among most beings. They thought they had found a way to make themselves immortal. They developed a Power Cell that would harness the power of a God, harnessing it from the Great Wellspring. The Wellspring is a floating purple structure, in the middle of the large planet. The floating structure has a large halo above it and it represents the God Anubis trapped ready to have his power stolen from him.]]
[center [size12 They developed a perfect immortal cell, a power cell that would use The Wellspring and would use the power to give themselves immortality. The Librarians also reached this point of technology in the past but turned away from it. The imbuing refers to how the power would be imbued within all life making them Immortal.]]
[center [size12 Upon accessing The Wellspring and gaining a portion of Godlike power, the Immortal Cell gained a Godlike sentience of it’s own, from now on we will call this sentience, The Judgement. This infantile Godlike entity has not learned right from wrong, which has wide spread corruption throughout the planet, causing a sort of war among the species and even the humans that have come to live on this planet as well.]]
[center [size12 The corruption doesn't just affect how people react towards one another, it also affects any species' health. The main character of this story, Aries. He is a Drifter, or someone to restore peace on this planet. It is rumored to believe that the Drifter is not only suffer from an illness that comes from this corruption, but is also a hybrid all of the original species that lived on this planet long ago. He not only has most of the abilities that they once had, but he is also the person that is to save this planet from total corruption and bring Anubis back to full power and fight the Judgement.
[center [size15 [b ~~~]]]
[center [size12 Aries was sitting by a small campfire. His back against the wall, his breathing was shallow. He felt a wave of weakness fall over him. He felt as if he couldn't move. He could feel his little creature, Mo pushing against his arm. Mo was an ancient kind of creature that was made out of hyper energy to bring a rock like statue alive with high intelligence. Mo was basically a floating medical professional for Aries. Mo kept pushing on him until Aries finally got a grip on himself and looked at the small, rock creature with a worried expression.]]
[center [size12 Aries was this very small, blue skinned creature with white hair and black eyes. Not many people have seen his face, nor will they ever see his face. He wore a very strange outfit that was very rare to see nowadays, given that the original race of creatures have died out and nothing was left, other than humans and mixed breeds. Drifters were rumored to not only be hybrids, but more importantly, a better version of the species that used to be here. Drifters like Aries could control hyper light and actually use it to their advantage, like Aries using hyper light for a sword. Harnessing the heavy light energy to slice through most everything.]]
[center [size12 When Aries awoke the next morning, he pushed himself up from the damp grass and stretched upwards. The feeling of a coughing spree that would never end crept over his body. He pulled down his mask and began coughing hard before glancing down at his hand. He was still actually coughing as he examined the blood that had pooled into his palm and shook his head. Once he got himself under control, he was making his way to the neared town. He needed to figure out how he was going to tackle this [i Judgement]. He was actually kind of scared to deal with, but at the same time, he had to. It meant that he would have a shoot at finding the cure to his illness.]]
[center [size12 Aries traveled all the way to a small town called, [i Ashur]. It was a quaint town with a few shops, Inn, and a few other places to stop by and check out. Aries made his way to the Inn. A real bed sounded wonderful right now. He went in and checked out a room, paying for a few nights ahead of time before finding his way to the restaurant in town. A dinky little building with a couple of drunken creatures sitting out front. Never mind it was still morning time and made his way into the building and finding himself a nice table in a secluded corner.]]
