Three Weeks Ago...
The mid-day sun shinned down upon a gentle scenery. A long dirt road wined and curved along the grassy hills. The path was once a shallow river before a new damn was built further up north. Rare flash flood storms would fill up the path and the river would return for a few days. The sun would dry it up shortly afterwards. Beautiful and tall trees live close to the path yet far away to keep their shade to themselves.
This path connected two kingdoms to each other, although that didn't mean it had many visitors. Due to its many turns and bends no one wants to travel on it. There is also rumors of monsters living in the forest. The humans call the forest that accompanies the path The Dark Forest. The rumors of monsters are completely true.
A small lake rests at the heart of the forest. The water somehow stays pure enough for drinking. The reflection of the water is like crystals and diamonds. Most animals and monsters that drink from the water are just visitors. There are a multitude of fish that live in the lake. A rainbow of colored plants also dwells within the waters. They all help maintain the lake's purity, but they aren't the most important creature of the lake.
The entire forest depends on the lake for water. The one who guards the lake and purifies it is an extraordinary slime creature. The humans know this creature as a slime girl. There is a variety of slime girls in the entire world, but this one is slightly different. She carries more emotions and will power. It is rare when a slime girl is as intelligent as a human. This one is even more intelligent than most humans. A dark slime that resides in the Dark Forest's Lake. She eats all of the toxins in the waters to keep it pure and fresh.
The dark slime rose from the water's surface. She expected to hear silence, but instead heard the sound of a horse and carriage. She was greatly surprised to hear of a human visitor. Soon she could see the carriage and was even more shocked to see who was in it. Besides the driver and a couple of knights there was a young male tied up. The men in armor tossed the boy out of the carriage without a word. The driver turned the horses around and they left the boy stranded in the middle of the Dark Forest.
The slime girl watched the events unfold with peaked curiosity. She didn't know why they were leaving a human in the forest and this only made her imagine a bunch of crazy stories. Her final thought was he was an offering to her. Just like humans the slime girl had pride in herself. Or maybe it was her big ego that made her believe the boy was for her. She went to investigate the boy's body up close.
There were bruises and cuts covering his entire body. All injuries were minor enough, but he was in no condition to be what the slime considered a proper offering. She scoffed at the thought of being given trash as a sacrifice. The slime girl paced back and forth. As she walked a strange artifact in the middle of her chest bounced slightly. It was close to where the heart would be on a human. The artifact was indeed the slime girl's heart. Without it her body would collapse into a pool of slime.
The female slime looked over toward the boy whom was still tied up. She let out a soft sigh. He looked too innocent to be hog tied like that. She knelt down and began to eat the ropes. Soon the boy was free from his binds. The slime girl couldn't help but to laugh a bit at the boy. Without even much communication between the two the girl was already enjoying the boy's company.
One Day Ago...
In the country of Eden are three kingdoms. The military kingdom of the north lead by a king known as The Wolf. He is tough yet just to his people, but ruthless to his enemies. He is constantly fighting with the king of the south kingdom. Thanks to the dangers of the Dark Forest they never resort to a full scale war. Currently The North Kingdom and the South Kingdom are under a treaty. It won't be long before that is over and done with.
The kingdom to the south isn't as military based as the kingdom to the north. South catches the fish from the ocean that they border. Anything that has to do with water they are usually experimenting with in some way. The king here is known as Trident. He loves the water even more than the fish that live and breath in it. If a battle was to be fought on the ocean his kingdom would come out as victors.
There is one last kingdom to be mentioned yet. It lies to the east. All kingdoms are positioned to avoid the Dark Forest, which lies almost in the center of the country. The East Kingdom isn't ruled by any king. A Parliament rules over it until a new heir can be crowned. The kingdom provides trade to the North and the South. The East buys weapons and furniture from the North and buys fish and produce from the South. The East also produces its own goods, but not as well as the other two kingdoms.
The Dark Forest is in the center of the country. It is dangerous territory filled with monsters and other blood thirsty creatures. Or at least that is what is told to children to keep them from running away from home. The monsters aren't as dangerous as people may think. They live similar to the way humans do. Some live alone while some live in packs, herds, or even clans.
A magnificent house nested close to the Dark Forest Lake. A new resident was now living in the Dark Forest, and an unusual one at that. The only human to have lived in the forest among the monsters and animals in the longest of times. The house wasn't large, just the basics. That's all that were needed for the human boy. The slime girl lived next door to the human.
! Come out here!" the slime girl shouted. She splashed around in the lake trying to get the boy's attention. The morning was always the worst time to try to talk to the boy it seemed. "What is he up to now?" the slime girl asked herself. She was getting quite impatient with the boy. He was the first person she ever bonded to, although she'd never admit to liking him. The slime girl was known as Tressa
to the human.Tressa
couldn't wait any longer for Adam
to come out and play. She left the comfort of her lake and charged into the house. The place was a mess. "Why don't you ever clean up after yourself?" she spoke. Her tone of voice made it clear that she was pissed off. The anger hid her worry well. This wasn't an ordinary mess. There were hoof marks printed everywhere. Every bit of furniture was tipped over and nothing remained unbroken. Anger soon consumed the slime girl, but in truth she was completely scared that something bad happened to her friend.Tressa
looked through the house to find nothing. She looked around the surrounding area and still found no trace of Adam
. The signs were clear. A Centaur kidnapped him. The slime girl screamed at the top of her lungs. In the corner of her eye she spotted a trail left by the hoofed creature. She followed in hopes of finding her friend.
The Dark Forest Lake hasn't seen its slime girl resident in twenty-four hours. She's spent the entire time looking for Adam
was filled with guilt. "How could I let this happen?" she asked herself. After hours of traveling to the southern portion of the Dark Forest she happened upon a small tribe of Centaurs. There were many of the hoofed creatures walking around the encampment. At least seven of them were by the campfire. (r Tressa made sure to stay in the bushes undetected. For how long she would remain hidden was up to fate.
The Centaurs moved to reveal Adam
in a throne like chair. They seemed to be worshiping him for some reason. This not only puzzled the slime girl but filled her with jealousy. She held herself from storming in to attack. The Centaurs were feeding him grapes and other fruit. This would have continued on if one of the younglings hadn't tripped and fallen into the bush where the slime girl was. She was immidiatally captured by an adult Centaur but oozed her way out of the other creature's hold.Tressa
slipped through their arrows to reach Adam
. "What's going on?" he asked the boy, "Why are they worshiping you?" The answer to that question came from one of the Centaurs. She had bright green fur and a child like appearnce. "We need him for mating. He's the only male around for miles that won't try to kill us," the Centaurian spoke. "You're part male!" another Centaur laughed at the green hoofed girl. "Look! I don't care why you took him away! He is my friend and I won't let you hurt him!" Tressa
shouted. She changed her arms into multi-tentical appendages and readied to punch anyone who got into the shape shifer's way.
