//A.N.// I wanna thank everyone who reached this chapter of my firts fic. and please continue supporting my fanfic. I know its gonna be boring since I am just a rookie at this. TT^TT
P.S. Hongki and Gikwang has the same age. You guys might eb confused with their ages so here it is again:
DONGHAE and NICHKHUN: eldest 20
GIKWANG and HONGKI: 18
JIYEON, JINYOUNG and MYUNGSOO: 17
YOU: 16 (You're the MAKNAE~)
When all of us left the palace, Hongki and I started on the place that seemed to be swarmed by some of those men that looked like the goons in action movies. Then, sooner and later on, we started arguing on which way to go next. When I thought I should separate ways with Hongki, seeing that we are only pulling each other down, only as for today's search, since we are PARTNERS. He quickly agreed before I could even elaborate some reasons for him and me to search separately. "So we meet again here after two hours arasso?" I told him.
"Arasso. Yah, before we leave each other, Kwang I wanna warn you about going into the chained room. Please pass that rule on to others. Even Jiyeon isn't allowed to come in." As he left after saying those with a scoff, I shrugged it easily off me.
I went to th nearest place with much residents and started asking. I asked, and asked, until I felt like it had been half an hour, but still, no clues. 'Aish!' I groaned silently. 'Why does fate have to be tough with me right now?' I grunted on how unfortunate I am becoming. Then after an hour passed by, the snow started to fall a bit stronger than it was and the temperature STANGELY dropped.
'Acck! What's up with Celes nowadays?! It wasn't THIS DAMN COLD before.' I cursed at the temperature as I rubbed my palms and placed it on my cheeks to warm myself. Then I grabbed my pocket watch to check the time. I realized that Celes' time really GOES FASTER than the time from our WORLD.
Then I remembered that I was supposed to report with Hongki if I might have found even a single clue, so I went back to the place. It was really getting colder than ever, but why is it that when we were still in the palace, the ice isn't cold? Aish, Celes and its mysteries...
I arrived eaarlier than I thought and was greeted by Hongki's back facing me. As if he sensed my presence quickly, he turned his head to face me with a smug look, "Yah! What took you so long, huh?" He placed his arms on his waist as if he is like a mom scolding a kid. "AH! Arasso! Just 'cause you're my friend, relative and brother. Plus, you're also a prince in this world, I CAN'T BEAT YA HERE." I smirked, nudging his side.
"DAMN Right!" Now, he was arching his eyebrows and crossed his arms on his chest. "So, any news?" I shook my head, and he sighed, hearing the same situation that happened to him. "CELES!" He suddenly grunted, kicked a lump of snow and sat on the ground, like he was throwing tantrums at how we seemed so out of luck. Then as people noticed his weird behavior, he then stood up and nudged my arm, "Yah, so where we headed now?" He asked, while petting his horse. "Summon the others and lets take a break for lunch. We should eat togethereven if we're STILL INCOMPLETE, for now." I sighed sadly as I mumbled the last part sadly.
I saw Gikwang sigh. 'Tch, he's still a pabo who tries to be cool.' I smirked and tried to cheer this brother of mine. "Yah, we can still sta happy even when we are ALL APART, and you know that Kwang." I patted his back and he faked a smile. "Tch, cocky actor." I mumbled. Then we shared a batch of hearty laughs, as if we NEVER had THESE kinds of problems before.
"So who's gonna summon? Not me, OK? You know the vibes I give off when I cast a spell." I whined, hating the SUPER POWERFUL WAVES of my magic, *evil laugh* well, it might be a good help at times, but it can be, most of the time, a nuisance.
I looked down on my shoes, waiting for Gikwang to volunteer until a sigh escaped him, which made me look up to him as he spoke. "Ah, arasso! I'm doing the spell." I beamed and smiled, "Thank 'ya~" He then glared at me, "You owe me a TREAT." With that, he told me to ride on my horse, and motioned for us to go to a secluded place for him to cast the spell. Then we came upon the forest where we used to play at when we were young.
"Muri spatio separatae nobis, quam tenuissima in aere comprimat dorsum sociorum ac deducere. (The walls of space that separate us, compress into the thinnest air and bring our allies back.)" As I thought, he does his spells dramatically as ever, tch. Then, after a few minutes of waiting in the snowy and cold forest, Joon and Jiyeon came first and we shared greetings.
"Hey, what took you so long, huh hyungs?" Gikwang pouted as he hopped off his horse. "Quiet down, or else Jiyeon will have a fit again cuz you wake her up." Joon warned. "Aigoo. Can you all stop this petty quarrel and just spill if you have any leads?" Hongki went in and cut the tension that's about to arise.
"Well?" He asked Joon as he shook his head, to Hongki's disappointment, another fail. "And you, Donghae-hyung and ____-ah? Any clues?" he turned and asked the two who just arrived and were oblivious of what happened nodded in sync. "YES!" Hongki cheered as he pumped his fists up in the air, and to their surprise, Jiyeon woke up. "What?! You've had a lead on one of ____'s feathers?!" She exclaimed excitedly while hugging ____. They both nodded. "Well, here goes." Dongahe started off and then explained about the information they got from the old man.
"So, it's the feather's power that causes all THESE problems." Hongki concluded. "And what should we do?" Joon asked everyone who were thinking. "Aha! I know." As Donghae exclaimed, all eyes came on him and eagerly waited for his idea. "Okay. We're gonna enter the FAKE PALACE and search for the feather." He started, but was cut by Hongki as he suddenly said, "Hyung, if our problem isn't ONLY ____'s feathers, I could agree with your idea by a blink of an eye, but, I FORGOT TO TELL YOU THAT THE FAKE PALACE IS ALIVE."
"MWO?!" All, except Hongki exclaimed. He sadly nodded and sighed, "But still, trying to barge in and get ____'s feather could be worth all the trouble right?" Jiyeon beamed and everyone nodded cheerfully. "Good. Now, all we have to do is brace ourselves up for this LIVING PALACE." Donghae started.
To their eagerness in finding a feather, they didn't sense that SOMEONE was watching over every move they make. HE is hiding within the trees of the forest.
"So, you're all planning to attack the palace?" He said under his breath silently, preventing anyone of them to hear and sense his existence. "Tch, if only I CAN BE WITH YOU right now ____. This never would've happened." He sneered as he looked at everyone who was with ____ with deep hatred and disgust. "They were TOO CARELESS and just forgot that WE are all after you. Be it in a good wa or to hunt you down, I WILL PROTECT YOU, even if I have to go against my own BLOOD."
Omo~ Having a hard time in updating since I am starting to lose ideas,
but IT'S GONNA BE OK.
Remember the dream of ____ before she woke up and got possessed?
It's good if you still remember the full details of the dream,
IT'S GONNA BE VERY VERY VERY RELEVANT.
Oh, P.S. Who do you think is THAT GUY?
SO HOW'S THE CHAPTER?
