My name is Akio Hitsugaya and I'm 18 years old. I live in a little cabin in a forest on
the edge of a cliff together with my mum and my dad. It is quite a peaceful
place. Although I live in a very dangerous world, which is still not really a problem for
me since it is a perfect world for somebody like me, because I want to become
the most powerful adventurer. Amazed by the hero's from fairy tales I want to become
like them. Ever since I was a child that had been my dream. It's a bit
embarrassing to admit though, so if somebody were to ask I would probably lie about
it. I also don't want to stay my whole life here and do nothing. Most people
would likely have been satisfied, but not me. I want to be an adventure and, as such,
not be forgotten.
I gaze upon then ocean while the the sun is rising and once again ascertain my goal.
The sun was reflecting in my blue eyes and my brown hair was shaking from the
wind. I was wearing my usual grey leather coat, including pants and sweater. Even the
gods seem to favour this day. It's the perfect day to start my journey. Thinking
such things I heard my dad approaching and call in loud voice.
“So you'll finally go? I guess I can't do anything against it. But you will do it. After all,
I taught you everything you need to know.”
I looked to my side as my dad came to a stop beside me. He was smiling like usual
while he hit me lightly on the shoulder. He is always like this. I can't remember a
day when he wasn't smiling.
After looking at the sea for a bit we turned around and started to slowly walk back to
the cabin. Mum was waiting in front of it, holding back her tears and smiling.
Mum isn't as strong as dad, but that was no problem, since dad was by her side since
they were children. I was a bit sad to leave mum behind, but I want to go. They
both don't understand why I wanted to go but they supported me and everything I did
and I was happy about that.
“I guess it's time.” I said as I grabbed my backpack.
“Wait a moment! I've got something for you, give me a moment.”
I was surprised and had no idea what he would give me but I still nodded. He went into
the cabin and a few moments later he came out while holding a linen cloth in
his hands which he handed to me. It was surprisingly heavy. I took the linen cloth from
the object and saw that it was a sword sheathed in its custody.
“This is my sword” dad said proudly “It saved my life countless times. I hope it will do
the same for you. I guess you will need it.”
I really didn't know that my old man had something like this but it was no wonder
when you consider he taught me swordsmanship. I drew the sword, struck the air a
few times and put it back in its custody. Afterwards I fixed it on my back under my
“Mum? Dad? Don't worry to much, I will come back!”
“I know and we will be waiting for you” Mum responded with a tear running down her
“And don't forget to bring a girlfriend with you!”, dad said laughing.
I started walking off along a narrow path. I turned around one more time, smiled and
“Bye!”, both responded quickly with a huge smile.
I started walking again and was soon in the deep forest.
I'm searching for an illustrator. If you are interested let me know.
