(Previously on Immortal Wars.)
Disclaimer: Immortal Wars was the book I came up with and wrote in high school. I hadn’t even hit college by the time I wrote the first two books. That means I hadn’t developed my style yet, wasn’t good at self-editing, and the story was fairly basic. So, you’ve been warned that this is the ultimate author throwback segment for my blog and will show my author origins. FYI- I put the first book (The Summoning) through a Print-on-Demand publisher and the second one (Light, Blood, & Tears) never saw the light of day. Enjoy!
Back at the Mandervale Mansion, Solix is busy trying to talk his way out of explaining too much to the new guardians. So far, he has only mentioned what they are the guardians of and some things about the Sun Base.
“Answer me, Solix. What happened to the original guardians? If we’re the new ones then something had to have happened to the ones that you were a part of. So tell us what happened,” orders Ed as he stands right in the face of Solix. The others are sitting on a nearby couch trying to figure out what all of this means.
“They decided to quit. When we exiled the evil immortals, my allies had decided to retire. The work was getting too much for them and they wanted to leave. I had no choice but to let them leave. I may have lead them in battle, but I did not lead their lives,” explains Solix as beads of sweat form on his forehead.
“It doesn’t matter, Blondie. They’re gone and we’re the ones that will get the glory. Now, let’s just get going,” states Delila.
“I just want all of us to be careful. We don’t have any idea what we’re getting ourselves into. We should be careful.”
“You shouldn’t talk about being careful. Need I remind you of the time you talked my boyfriend into sneaking onto that Air Force Base. And also that little incident last weekend at the High School. You were caught drinking on the roof of the High School and spent the better part of the night dodging the cops. Now that is really being careful, Slane.”
Kelly suddenly stands up and says, “What? You said that you went out for a midnight jog around town and that you tripped into a thornbush. Instead, you were being chased around town by the police.”
“Calm down, Kelly. You know that Eddie is a little bit of a misfit. He’s done worse. Like the time he stole the motorcycle from the gang leader. Oops. You didn’t know about that one. Sorry, Ed,” says Steve. Kelly suddenly slaps Ed across the face and gives him one of the most evil glares that he has ever seen.
“She’s probably just mad that he didn’t share the alcohol with him. Both of you are criminals in my mind,” mentions Delila as she gets to her feet.
Kelly turns around to face Delila while the two guys shake their heads and sit down on the couch. Solix watches to see what will happen between the women.
“I’m a criminal? Aren’t you the one who stole my boyfriend? You stab me, your best friend, in the back over a guy. And he wasn’t even that good a guy.”
“He was to me. I guess you just didn’t know how to act around men. They don’t like the tough girl that threatens people and likes to prove that whatever a guy can do, she can do even better. He wasn’t looking for that, Tomboy. He wanted me.”
“That’s because you’re nothing more than a filthy rich slut that wanted what everyone else had. I can’t understand how I was ever friends with you.” Delila walks right into Kelly’s face and spits on her forehead. Kelly simply smiles before punching Delila in the nose and shattering it.
“How do you like that one?” asks Kelly as she grabs Delila’s red hair. Suddenly, Delila grabs Kelly’s waist and flips the other girl over her. Kelly lands on a glass table and the shards cut her arms. Both of them get up and square off before they realize the wounds are starting to heal themselves.
“Enough! Will all of you calm down and forget about what happened in your mortal lives? Now that I have revealed the truth to you, you’re powers are starting to awaken. We must go back to the Sun Base and start on your training,” says Solix. Without another thought, Solix begins to teleport and takes the four teenagers with him.
