The King X His “Summon”
The Kingdom of Faroen has been at odds with the Kingdom of Ceverias for some time now. No one really knows how the war started, just the previous King of Faroen and the Council that follows the new one. _(Name?)_ needed that land. He needed to fill not only his pockets with gold, but that of his people. He needed something powerful to help him. He had his army, his Council, his people, but it wasn't enough to help him. He needed something great, something powerful. He needed a demon to help him, a strong demon to grant him his wishes, his needs. (Name) new his Father carried an array of books that would help him with what he was seeking. The Council thought it a bad idea, but no way was (Name) going to lose his country to Ceverias. With candles lit, book in hand and the summoning circle in place, (Name) summons his demon, expecting something ferocious, something out of a nightmare, but instead of getting a demon, he gets a girl. A girl who can use strange powers. Can she be of some help, or will King (Name) lose this war, failing his Father and his people?
((This can go 1 of 2 ways or many ways I think. The King can fall in love with her, but she tries not to get to comfy since she wants to go home. He seduces her, uses her for the sole purpose of winning the war and then figuring out how to send her away. He seduces and uses her, she finds out his motive and betrays him. Incorperate some action (obviously), comedy, drama, romance, etc, perhaps? Think of either......uhhh..Magic Knight Rayearth? *shrugs* =^-^=))
Lilith Brei was a very unsual girl. She tends to spend most of her time in the library reading fiction books, science, history and books about old folk tales. She recently got into reading books on how to cast magic and the art of summoning. Those books weren't permitted to be checked out, so every day after school she would just sit in the library reading and reading and reading page after page after page about magic casting. She's even jotted down some notes, copied summoning and casting circles and the like and goes home with her “homework” and studies. People thought her weird. She lived alone, so that was good.....more or less. Her mother died giving birth to her, her father......he loved his liquor bottle too much one could say and when it came to good judgement.....he never had it when he was in a stupor, so off he went driving into a pole and dying. Since Lilith was old enough to live on her own, the government has taken the responsibility of funding her means of living. So long as she kept at it with good grades and a positive attitude, the money would just keep on rolling. At least she was lucky to get some free food from the landlady downstairs. Living alone for the past 3 years wasn't too bad. Trying to learn magic was....a little sad, but it gave her something to do after she was done with her actual work. She almost got the hang of it. She managed to make a piece of paper move a little with a tiny, little, itty, bitty burst of wind and she double checked to make sure the window wasn't open.
Day after day Lilith started getting the hang of it. She's managed to fill a cup with water and maganed to light a candle, yay! The sad thing was that her magic casting really wasn't that strong. She wanted to make balls of fire and cause a tsunami....but that'll never happen. Giving the offense magic casting a rest, she decides to work on her defense magic casting. The down part was that defending took up more energy, since you were using your inner energy to help create a barrier or shield to fend off attacks. Everytime Lilith got close to making a tiny little shield she would end up so winded she would fall asleep. Day after day, she tries and tries, but creating a barrier or shield is just to much work. Maybe she should just stick to offensive.....but a good Magic user uses both, don't they? “Maybe I should stop using magic all together. People think I'm weird and chances are mom and dad would have been rather ashamed of me.” But she loved this.
Nibbling her lip, Lilith looked down at her notes, seeing all the different circles there were for summoning things. She should attemtp it? “Not like its going to work or anything.” Hah! As if anything would appear. A straight A highschool senior trying to summon a big, bad monster to help her. Looking up at the clock on her night stand, she huffed. “Maybe...it wouldn't hurt to try. Atleast it's Saturday tomorrow, so in case something appears I'll have the weekend to try and send it back.” Nodding her head, she began to gather a few things. A blank piece of paper, salt, a few candles and a kitchen knife. Looking at her notes, Lilith went through them, trying to see what circle did what. “If only the librarian had given me just five more minutes. I could have written more down.” She scanned her eyes over one circle, then another, setting those down and looked at the third one she drew. “I think....this one summoned things.” And by things she meant 'not really sure if it'll be alive or not'. Using the salt to make the circle on the blank piece of paper, Lilith lit her candles and then proceeded to prick her finger, letting just two drops of her blood fall in the middle where, if by chance something does come out, the whatever would be blood bound to her and would have to obey her no matter what. Looking at the incantation, Lilith raised her hands over the circle and chanted, trying her best to pronounciate each word properly. When all was said and done....nothing happened. “Hmm?....Maybe....I didn't say it right.” Clearing her throat she tried again....and again....and.....again.....and nothing. Frustrated, she threw herself back, her back hitting the side of her bed. “Knew this was stupid. Knew it, knew it.” Sighing, she looked at her circle and realized she was too tired to clean up. “I'll do it tomorrow.”
Getting up, Lilith prepared for bed. She showered, brushed her teeth and combed her wet hair back. Slipping into a long tee that stopped just above her knees and a pair of blue and white stripped panties with a little bow in the front, Lilith turned the lights off, making sure the whole apartment was locked down and slipped into bed. Sighing, she looked at her work left on the floor and sighed. “Stupid...” She whispered and rolled over, facing away and shut her eyes.
Was it raining outside? Lilith stired, hearing wind all around her. Opening her eyes, the lights in her room were on. Why were they on? She mumbled, trying to wake up. Rolling over, she peered through heavy lids, seeing that her lights were on, but instead a blinding light was coming from the salt summoning circle she made. And the wind, well the wind was happening all around her. Sitting up fully awake now, Lilith gazed as wind picked up and the bright light flickered. “W-What's....going on?” She asked herself, which wasn't any help, since she didn't know the damn answer. Lilith was afraid, thinking she indeed summoned something, but why would it appear now? Seeing her papers and things fly around, Lilith needed to grab her notes, but just as she slipped one foot off the bed, her body was being pulled by some invicible force. “W-What the-? Wait...no...I don't...want....to go.” She grabbed at the bed sheets and blanket, but no avail, she was being pulled. “S-SOMEONE! ANYONE! HELP ME!” She yelled, but no use. Her body was practically slammed towards the light and she was engulfed, her body disappearing and the light around the room dimming. Everything fell to the floor, her room a mess. Lilith screamed as she fell through what ever it was she was in. It was almost like Alice in Wonderland, except she wasn't seeing clocks everywhere, but just different colored lights. “Oh God, I'm dreaming. I'm dreaming. I'm-” her words were cut off as she slowed down and all around her the lights morphed, a room taking shape. When everything was set in place, Lilith was hovering in the air, the wind holding her up for a few moments, before she fell flat on her back, the wind being knocked out of her lung. “O-Ow!!.” She winced, rolling on her side, trying to alliviate the pain on her back. Opening her eyes, she looked around, seeing that she was in some sort of......celar?...Basement? She wasn't in her room that's for sure. “Oh God....w-was....that a transportion circle I used?” She asked herself, and again, she didn't know the answer. Lilith was too afraid and confused to move, not noticing the lone figure that was standing behind her. Her mind was trying to grasp what just happened. It was trying to settled her down and have her think logically, which was useless, since she was freaking the hell out. “I'm just dreaming. This is all a dream and I'll wake up. I have to wake.” She closed her eyes and began to chant over and over. “Wake up, wake up, wake up. Its all a dream, all a dream, all a dream, so wake up Lilith.”
