[13th November 2133 – Vale, Realm: Near-Way. Around the 6th hour…]
”So this is Vale? ” Sergile surveyed aboard the carrier, judging from above when the island fully came into view.
”Wow, its beautiful, isn it? ” Saline, who was seated upon his lap, cast no judgement as they both peered behind the windshield.
Always so vibrant, this one is. And he can help but appreciate such a woman, though:
Should I consider giving her a contract? This was one of the things he had in his mind, whether he should mention it before her.
”Maybe it is not the right time? ” He muttered to himself, and immediately understood that he had just blurted out this thought.
”Hmm? What was that? ” Saline questioned not fully adhering to that sentence, having spent her attention whilst still marveling at the new settlement.
”Oh nothing really, I think that its beautiful too! ” He responded with a half lie and half-truth.
He must admit however by the fact that it kind of was, and made note of the skyscrapers they were now constructing on the cities flat, but then
he peered at the mountains above for a second time.
That part of the settlement wasn so steep, but being lushed with natural greens was an A in his book, at least he was under the impression that it was all natural in this highly technological world, and:
Knowing her, the estate should be constructed somewhere up there… His Lady Goldheart likes a clear open view, that he knows, and the same for natural greenery.
He often finds that she share a lot of similarity with the natives of Eldheim even though she is a native of Uttoshelm, whose race is not so keen on being agricultural.
Soon his gaze fell onto the port and noticed a large, peculiar looking platform that was quite a distant away from the Dock and Custom.
So, he pointed his finger at this platform that everyones attention was drawn before it:
”I see thats the reason for its other namesake, huh?… Sector C A.K.A. Project Cross! ”
And when he made that known to everyone on board as to why this location is dubbed as such, they began making their own theories:
”What is that thing actually supposed to be? Do people live on that thing? ”
”It looks so cool, is it a weapon? ”
”It could be the base of the armed force. ” Which was probably the most accurate one?
”What if its the power source of the city? ”
”What if its a Titan? ”
And as soon as this word left one of his Personnel, everyone turned and looked at him in such a way, that made him think that he mightve said something unforgivable.
Feeling targeted, He contradicted his professionalism even more by waving his hands comically:
”Come on, guys, don take it seriously!!! ” He exclaimed in a sheepish manner to get everyone off his back.
So, another Personnel walked up to him, and whacked him across the head, ”Joking about Titans is not funny, you dolt! ”
Titans, huh? ” He mulled on that statement, and though he himself had seen one of these entity on a separate account, he recalled on the stories regarding the destruction they brought when he too was forced out of Uttoshelm.
He heard of how these gigantic entities suddenly appeared a few years ago, disrupting both the continuum of space and time by ripping open wormholes across every realm.
The numbers they had to their name of countless civilizations was within the billions, but there was one thing peculiar about these entities, and that is that they can also assimilate biomass.
They appear as mechanical horrors that are also capable of consuming flesh and growing stronger, they also rendered destroyed civilization unable to recover due to the spread of their contaminating blood.
”Riel Come Forth! ” Sergile commanded the Captain of his Security, the same that whacked the other.
”Yes my lord? ” He came to his master dutifully and knelt before him.
”As soon as this carrier touches the ground, I want you to take as many Personals as you need and scout that platform! ” And this was the order given to him.
Everyone in the quarter looked at him confused, wondering why the sudden shift in seeming partially interest to downright sending his Personals on a mission that will lead them all to question the senates integrity.
That was their thought, and that was until Riel looked at the serious no nonsense expression that made him realized:
e not seriously thinking that their project could be an actual titan, my lord? ” And when he blurted this out in disbelief with a minor in faith, everyone on board became shaken.
”So I guess my theory was right… ” and this Personnel was shut down quickly when everyone except Sergile gave him a hate fueled gaze.
”Still don you think thats an overreaction, my lord? ” This thought came from Edamame their Vice Captain.
”Would you risk the allegiance for just a mere thought? ” And Riel again questioned if this notion was sound.
And Sergile gaze at him ” Just…a…mere…thought? ” And each vowel echoed unto the next as the lighting began to flicker repeatedly, whereas the turbulence could be felt and become more frantic.
Soon the entire room became almost as cold as ice as the air became pressurized and began to squeeze them. They know what was being done:
He is angry that they all know and fear was creeping behind them.
When they began to falter, Sergile played to his anger for a view more seconds before it all went away.
Everyone except for him heaved on board, they were indeed sweating and huffing, but nonetheless got the result that he needs, that they will take his words more seriously:
”I fought a Titan before. ” And his words led them to give an ear, but to Saline and her Company, they were amazed to know that he had personally confronted one.
”Ubelheim, ever heard of it? ” In this, he questioned everyone present.
They shook their head in response, and he went on to say, ”You wouldn know the lesser known of all realms, but a single Titan destroyed this one! ”
And there was a pregnant pause among the people, they could not believe what they just heard.
A single Titan have that sort of power? This was the one thing unknown to them. Theyve only heard Titans coming in a group of twos and even threes, but there was never a report of one destroying a realm.
”Grim I know, but when I was, I discovered a giant bud the size of this carrier, and when we played ignorant to it, just being a native species of the realm, it shifted and expand its mass across the entire realm when we least expected it ” and before they can dwell on such a notion, Sergile continued:
”A simple disguise, and one that worked. It adorned such a form within that realm of ever expanding forest absorbing every black Monolith and biomass that it can find, and by the time I took complete notice of it, it had already consumed the final Black Monolith, which action cause the realm to implode upon itself. ”
”I survived the aftermath employing my astrolabe, so Ill advise you and make it known to all of you. Always be mindful of the things that seemed suspicious, even if its originally said as a joke, and you just heard that one realm paid for it. ”
Saline, Riel, and everyone else gulped and were incredibly shaken that they looked at the doofus that caused their fright, and at the platform that may or may not bring about an apocalypse.
