Jack and the Azure Flute, part 1"What sort of yarn do you have for us tonight?" Hayley asks Brock as the group gathers out in an open field.Jack and the Azure Flute, part 1 by LightningTopaz
"I have a Jack story for you tonight--one that requires a wide open space for stage archery to be told properly." Brock replies, proudly showing Hayley a bow made of dark oak wood with green leather wrapped around the grip.
"Your arrows, Sir Ranger." Misty smiles as she presents Brock with a quiver filled with thirty arrows, their sparkling fletching glinting in the campfire light.
He then assures his audience "These are only prop arrows, but I'm treating them just like I do real arrows--very carefully!"
"Beautiful bow, there..." a hand smiles as he admires Brock's bow.
Once his weapon is accounted for, Brock begins his tale. "There was once a man who had an only son named Jack. He had been married two other times before, making Jack his son via his first wife, but both his first and his second wives had died from terrible diseases. It didn't help that his current wife and
Welcome to Laurel Hills"It sure was nice of Hayley and her family to allow Misty and Brock to come with us to the ranch for two weeks." Ash grins as the family car makes its way up a dusty hill.Welcome to Laurel Hills by LightningTopaz
"I hope they don't mind being out in the country for two weeks." a brown haired woman cautions. "You know Hayley expects residents and guests alike to pitch in with the chores."
"I hope I get to help out with the Ponytas." Misty sighs dreamily, imagining herself as a cowgirl in a Western movie.
"If I want to wrangle anything, I can probably wrangle the younger kids, if not help out in the kitchen." Brock volunteers. He adds in his best cowboy drawl "...and maybe sing one when the work's all done."
The woman grins. "And tell one, too." she agrees as the car passes through the ranch's front gate.
Ash is the first one out of the car, just as he spots a familiar brown haired girl helping to round up some Tauros. He whistles to her just as the last Tauros is ushered in the pen for the night, getting her attention.
The Emerald of PowerA crowd of children hurry to get a look at an older boy's newest acquisition--a gold emerald ring. For a while, the children whisper in awe at the size of the oval shaped emerald, but then admire the two swaths of ivy inlay the emerald is sandwiched between.The Emerald of Power by LightningTopaz
"So that's a Mega Ring..." one boy comments."Where'd you get it, Brock?"
"Well--geography and history lesson, guys..." Brock begins as he motions for his siblings to follow him to the Gym. "Far away in the Kalos region--where Ash is right now--there's a place known as the Tower of Mastery. This is where trainers prove themselves to unlock the power of Mega Evolution."
"You mean some Pokemon can get even stronger???" a boy gasps.
"Yes, Forest--although this comes with a cost." Brock explains as he carefully pulls aside a false wall in a closet, allowing the children access to the Gym's main arena. "They can only remain in their new form for one battle because the power does take a toll on them just like any other battle.
The Heroes of Illumis, part 1The morning sun was high overhead Illumis by the time the young knight and the blue robed jewelmancer arrived at the majestic hall of the adventurer's guild. "Prince Clemont said he'd meet us here, right?" the knight asked.The Heroes of Illumis, part 1 by LightningTopaz
"Of course--a good prince always keeps his word." the jewelmancer smiled as she heard the familiar notes of a whistle playing the tune "Beating around the Bush" filled the air as their third companion, a songweaver, arrived.
"And woe betide the king or queen that reneges on their word." the songweaver grinned when he finished his song.
The jewelmancer smiled. "One need only hear a Matt tale to hear what happens if they do, Brock. Especially if you are the one telling it!"
"Which reminds me...I learned a new story while visiting the country town of Boseto...wanna hear it?" Brock asked his companions before putting away his whistle and taking out a circle shaped silver harp inlaid with sapphires and emeralds.
"Is there an epic quest in it?" the knight gasped--he alway
