Hello! I am going to try to write a fan fiction. It will be semi-wuxia. I will try my best, and I hope you enjoy reading it. Wish me luck! If you like it, I will write faster. Please read and criticize. You get greater chance of getting daily updates (if a bit short - I write very slowly). Here is a slightly more substantial first part for your reading pleasure:
Chapter 1 Part 1
Rhona whacked Thomas over the head. “Thomas, sit up straight”. It was late morning, and for the whole day Thomas had been dragging things down, trying to avoid his meeting. Not that Rhona was going to let him. She pulled the comb through his hair, causing him to wince. She snorted, and said “Do you see who is the boss?” He nodded dully. “You know, it’s not like I enjoy this”, she said, as she motioned for him to stand up, “But at least look presentable for the first time you meet her. It is supposed to be an engagement”. Noticing that he was not paying much attention, she patted him on the arm, secretly increasing the power of the blow with a little of her internal energy. That woke him, as he almost slid off the chair.
“Ouch, Rhona, I give up. Don’t worry, I’ll be there”, he said as he nursed his arm, and pulling a face at her. She pulled her face at him back and wondered about his comment, and in that instant, he quickly ran out of the room. Rhona yelled as she ran to catch up with him. Her language started becoming a little indecent. Unfortunately that just diverted her lightness skill and made her slower.
With such a head start, he had already managed to find a small place to hide in. Having grown up here, he knew that Rhona would never find him. She never had before, although he grimaced as he thought of what she would do to him when they meet again. However, the pampering had got to him – he was going to be packaged and married to some random girl. When Rhona had passed by, he crawled out of the nook, and decided to find a more comfortable place to hide in.
It wasn’t long before he found himself in front of the stables. Here at least, nobody would expect him to hide. Just as he was about to open the doors, two horses ran straight at him, one chasing the other. He was not expecting this, and so he fumbled for a moment. His legs got tangled in the hay just as he tried to dodge, and the first horse ran straight into him. His internal energy was high enough so it did not cause any injury, but he hurt all over.
“Mistress, lets stop. We have already made it to the Zhengshan school’s outskirts. Just consider it that you win” said one of the riders, a young girl. She was interrupted by the other rider, another girl who said “Consider? Do you consider it that I win and think in your heart that you have won?”, as she spoke, she looked on the ground and saw Thomas still lying there, and asked him “Weakling, get out of our way”. Thomas was in no mood for her insults, and huffed at her “Who did you say is a weakling?”
His eyes focused on her clothes, and saw that on her waist she had a sword, and even though it appeared to be a plain sword, from the way it reflected light it was clearly a refined sword.
The girl replied “Who I am is none of your business. I am here on an important duty. Do you dare to stop me?” Thomas stifled a laugh unsuccessfully, and asked “Important business?” and then thinking of a better plan, he said “If you think that just because you have a maid, you are superior…”
The girl blushed, “She is not a maid, she is a highly skilful martial artist,” defending her companion, and then said “You, on the other hand, can not even get out of the way of a horse given ten minutes. You are just a weakling”. Thomas paused for a moment, and the rude girl took the cue “So I was right!”, a little more confident, she added “Unless you want a fight, I suggest you crawl away now”
Thomas snorted, and thought to himself that this rude girl knew no bounds. To even dare say those words to him. He grinned as he imagined expression if she was told who he was. He was about to walk proudly out of the way and tell the rude girl his stature, when the servant cut in “Suin, lets just go. He is not worth it. Today is your big day”. Somehow that seemed to make the rude girl, Suin, even more annoyed.
Suin frowned, and said, “Who dares to tell me what to do?” The servant girl replied, “But your father will get…". Suin turned her head and stopped listening, and commanded to the servant “I feel angry today. Go and fight that weakling. Release my anger for me”. The servant girl stuttered, “But..” Suin stared at the girl, and said, “Didn’t I help you for that thing last time?”. Suin spoke of "that thing" quietly, but Thomas heard her. The servant sighed, and replied, "Oh… alright, Suin, but this is the last favour I owe you”. Suin smiled sweetly and said “That’s what friends are for”
Thomas had heard all this, and decided to walk away. These were definitely some very weird girls, but didn’t want any trouble. Not the least because both his parents and Rhona would definitely kill him the next time they find him if he got into a scuffle. Suin saw him walking away, and shouted to him “Stop right there, weakling. We are not done with you”.
